Bio not provided
There was a monster, both in Rupert's room and outside the ship. Whether there was a monster in the dreams or it was Clara in all of them is another matter.

@Planet of the Deaf There weren't any leaks, but I remember Catherine or Russell (or maybe it was in the original announcement) saying that she'd only be there for a series. Martha, on the other hand, was very much a surprise and a shame; I would've liked Martha to have had a second series.

@JolomontheCube It's 50 minutes (well, 48) like the last two. Chances are 50 minutes is the new time for the rest of the series, apart from Time Heist which is closer to 45.

2 months, 2 weeks ago on Doctor Who Series 8 UK Ratings Accumulator
@AztecsDaleksAndCavemen Even better when you consider the decent weather this year compared to 2012.
@MetamorphmagusWho met 7, 8 and Ace @Romanadvoratrelundar @Captain Grumpy I don't think it was either. Wasn't it the average number of viewers worldwide, so people in countries that may be premiering an older series as well as those on the most recent?
@Gava471 Even then, you have people who do watch live but through iPlayer which, as far as recall, isn't counted.
@Hoorn @Antee991166 But British TV isn't like Belgian TV. If anything, it's like US TV where terrible shows like NCIS get exceptional ratings and fantastic shows get cancelled.
@TheDreamer Same. I usually watch each new episode once a day for the entire week to help in anyway I can.
@Bloodrush The overnight ratings are not indicative of how many people watched the episode. Wait for the final BARB rating, which will probably be nearer 7-8 million.
@supermoff is alone. Listen... @alwaysrunning It was Into the Dalek that confirmed it for me. Maybe it was the sass, or just the Doctor's confusion throughout Deep Breath. Although, for me, the record is Matt.

@YaelMoise @supermoff is alone. Listen... So far at least. Like you said: we just have to wait and see.
@tlotoxl With next week's said to be Steven Moffat's best, I just hope Time Heist is as good as some people have said it is and Stephen Thompson doesn't break the superb run we've had so far.
@YaelMoise @TheCapaldiMasterplan That's why I think it'll be like Series 5 which had the crack in the first three episodes before taking a very short break.
I wasn't expecting it to be as brilliant as The Crimson Horror, but it was actually pretty close to that. A nice fun romp after two heavy episodes that was thankfully absent of cheese for the lactose intolerant viewers among us. 8/10.
@YaelMoise It kind of is arc-lite in the same way Series 5 was. The arc isn't dominating the plot of the stories like it did in Series 6, but casually appears here and there. Chances are that the 'Promised Land' and Missy won't appear for a few episodes, just like the crack had a break (albeit for one episode).
@The Sheriff I was absolutely thrilled with that. It's often the case that last-minute editing is noticable with weird jumps in the scene, but the entire scene ran smoothly as if that was how it was filmed. When I saw this article on the homepage, I half expected it to say that they had already filmed an alternate scene during filming and had broadcast that instead!

@ilyootha He mentioned being half-man, half-robot during the second half of the fight as it was shown so you don't really miss the reveal, just the detail surrounding it.
@RobertMadsen Not really; the BBC know people have already seen the episode and/or read the script when they were leaked so people who have done one or the other would have mentioned that said footage was missing and the connection would have been made anyway.
@supermoff of Sherwood @ Notsosmartguy @Planet of the Deaf Don't forget Clara Face Man!

2 months, 2 weeks ago on BBC Cuts Robot of Sherwood Scene
@BJAMES @ Notsosmartguy @joe4 @DangerousWho @Oliver J. "cool" @dandaman62 They are not being dictated by terrorists, but paying respect to two innocent men who've lost their lives. Stop acting childish.
@Malakyor @TheCapaldiMasterplan @Rani Nose It's called paying respect to these poor men slaughtered by terrorists.
@sophie90 @TheCapaldiMasterplan A woman was beheaded in her garden yesterday.
@Tardis Stowaway By the time is episode is repeated in November, I'd imagine they'll repeat the full episode on BBC Three when they repeat the series (depending on events at that time).
@SonicTheHedgehogRules The box set has probably been, or is in the process of being completed for production given it'll be released in nearly two months and they have to make enough copies in time.
@Rani Nose Also, given the reaction to something as non-threatening as a same-sex kiss, they obviously wanted to avoid the expected backlash over a beheading scene given the murders by IS and the awful attack in London today.
@Christoph1337 I would have agreed before Deep Breath; I never imagined Doctor Who showing someone impaled, even from a distance.
@RoryPond The DVD is probably already being finalised given they have to make enough copies in two months, so the uncut episode is probably there.
@awkward912 @supermoff of Sherwood Unfortunately not. It's most likely his new show for BBC Two that's kept him away.

@The Finn The only ones I'm on the fence about are The Idiot's Lantern and Night Terrors. The rest I either like (Victory of the Daleks and Cold War) or really like (The Unquiet Dead and The Crimson Horror).

@Adric the Genius It sounds like something from The Eleventh Hour, but at the same time it doesn't. Definitely something from Matt's era though.
@The Outer Space K9 Ben Miller, who unfortunately isn't being joined by his comedy partner Alexander Armstrong ;)
@supermoff of Sherwood @Ivegotkidneys is in Sherwood forest @NicholasHunter I blame Torchwood for that. Three fantastic episodes whilst working on Tennant's last episodes. Imagine the stress levels!
@AztecsDaleksAndCavemen I don't think references are a problem. I mean, they're literally just that. Maybe there are issues with episodes that rely heavily on past events, but with a show that's lasted for 50 years you have to accommodate your fans aswell as the casuals.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Deep Breath UK Ratings
@Luna23 @Antee991166 Overnight ratings mean absolutely nothing! All they do is show that hardly anyone watches TV live nowadays. Personally, Doctor Who is the only show I watch live now - everything else is through Netflix, iPlayer, 4oD or other... methods.
@James Copley It's typical really in an age where live viewing figures are no longer as high as people watch through TV on demand services or record shows to watch whenever. Final ratings should be around 7 million, optimistically 8 million.

@Goronian But Moffat didn't write Twelve's little speech in this episode (which was little and definitely not an Eleven speech), Phil did. Moffat's parts were (by the looks of it) mainly the Coal Hill stuff.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Rate & Discuss Into the Dalek
@TomLong2 I kept hoping it would happen. Is that cruel?
@usmandikkoladan I think this episode proves that 50 minutes works quite well for Doctor Who. Although, saying that: is it just me or has anyone else noticed that each episode has been shorter than the running times on the leaked scripts? Considering those scripts were supposedly the final cuts of the episodes, it's a bit odd.
@Favonian Squall @TheCapaldiMasterplan @AaronMcGahon1 Maybe Eleven only ever ate fish fingers and custard and now Twelve's suffering from cravings like a pregnant person.
@Favonian Squall @AaronMcGahon1 Cue obligatory onion reference. "You know me, Clara. I've got layers."
@The_Jo_Dude @TheCapaldiMasterplan @Scootersfood Yes, I do. It was called a joke.
@Scootersfood @The_Jo_Dude And she's still around with her bowtie cardigan and illuminati shirts.
@TardisKid101 Daleks being exterminated, or Daleks exterminating? If it's the latter, then there was plenty of that. Sure there was one scene when they were doing a lot of yelling and no shooting, but I could deal with that for one scene.
@Doctor When Right?! Why set up a story arc and introduce an important character when we can see more people getting killed?
@The_Jo_Dude You obviously didn't watch it. The whole point of the ending was that the Dalek wasn't good; all the Dalek did was go from killing everyone to killing Daleks which was exactly what the Doctor didn't want to happen. Rather than being good, the Doctor created a creature whose sole purpose is murdering its own kind.
@Planet of the Deaf @3rdDalektotheLeft @TheCyberDoctor is Undead @Ivegotkidneys is in a Dalek Plus, they killed people and Silents/Confessional Priests (they need a shorter name!) in The Time of the Doctor, and probably others in order to be the last race standing for that final confrontation.

@PaddyB Actually there was, along with cries about RTD's 'gay agenda'. Incredibly surprising that nearly a decade later nothing has changed.
