My favorite moment? The kid reading Pride and Prejudice checks out Clara's butt as she walks by to talk to the Doctor in the window. He is my hero. 

Also, when the Doctor is wiping away "Ozzie loves the Squaddie" he says "Kids, what's the matter with kids today?" Which is a line from a song of the same name from the musical Bye Bye Birdie which, you guessed it, premiered in 1963. 

And the Doctor's face when she says the other teacher isn't her type. (Obviously I'm rewatching it right now)

"Gallifrey is not time-locked, the Time War is time locked" - freakin THANK YOU! My words exactly! And you're right, this may all be premature and by the end of Series 8 this will be put in its proper context.

"Despite its title, the enduring mystery of Doctor Who isn’t the character’s name (though this episode gives a fairly large hint as to what that name might be)." ....Uh, you wanna share that insight with the rest of us? Didn't catch that in the episode.

@TylerNightingale @JLS1138 Just threw it out there for fun, Tyler. Perhaps a Baby Angel would want to hide so it didn't turn to stone. It could then move around, remove the blanket, and then disappear without having to worry about being seen....but again, it was just a throwaway idea for kicks.

Number 2 is the biggest reason BBC won't pull the plug on Doctor Who anytime soon. So long as they're raking in enough money to fill the TARDIS, they'll be juuust fine keeping it where it is.

I think there was a monster, or perhaps a lost little alien (baby Weeping Angel?) because something was definitely behind Clara when it removed the blanket. And I think it was meant to be a counterpoint to the end of the story, as if to say "there are no monsters under the bed.....unless there are!"

While I love the idea of Nick Frost possibly playing another goofy Sontaran (my first thought on reading this) I really hope we get to see a confrontation in which Strax has to choose between his own people and the Paternoster Gang

So here's what I've got on the criminal roster so far: 1-?, 2-?, 3-Cpt. John Hart, 4-? (looks like Troughton), 5-Slitheen, 6-Terileptil, 7-? (But creeps the hell out of me). Any ideas on the rest?

Capaldi's best episode yet, and I'd argue one of the greatest of New Who. Character driven, the right kind of creepy, a few surprises and the BIG shocker at the end. Just incredible.



I also think we're clearly seeing "Question:" becoming 12's catchphrase. Ever the teacher (much like Clara).  So, with that in mind....Question: Did Clara give the young Doctor the army figurine? If so, how did young Rupert get it?


Other Question: Is Courtney really going to join the TARDIS team? In just two quick snippets she's already annoyed the crap out of me

I think it's tough to say right now. Deep Breath is still fresh in our minds and hasn't has as much time to marinate (for better or worse). Also, the Eleventh Hour can now be viewed in the entire context of the Eleventh Doctor's arc. Both are amazing, but I think Deep Breath was such a different first outing that it might juuust come out on top on my list.

@Planet of the Deaf I do like having one "go to" channel for things like Doctor Who, Orphan Black, etc. I just wish they'd put Sherlock on but hey, if I have to tune to PBS for one show for three weeks every two years, it's no biggie.

By the way...anyone think that "Missy" and this "3W" organization (hinted at in the episode descriptions in a previous article) control regenerations? Could explain why Missy has such an obsession with the Doctor and why she said "I like his new accent, I think I'll keep it"

I would absolutely love to see an episode where Strax is forced to choose between the Paternoster Gang and rejoining the Sontarans in battle (against the Doctor and the Paternoster Gang). I though they were getting played out but Deep Breath reminded me why they're awesome.

I've said before, I think a 10th anniversary special is too much too soon (although they could certainly make that particular episode something memorable for the Twelfth Doctor). I do think, though, for Series 10 it might be cool to do a little something.

Here's the thing...I don't think it needs to be addressed BUT Moffat just had to pull out the convo he had with RTD and Russ' idea of how it could work. So, I think it's good that they'll address it in a low-key way and then move on.

Anyone else think this "younger/handsomer" thing is so typical of the Internet these days? We keep talking about how people won't like Capaldi because he's older and not as good-looking as Matt and David but, God's honest truth, I have not heard one single person actually make that claim. I think we EXPECT people to think like that, so article upon article upon interview talks about it, then we start believing that it's the prevailing mindset (I'm sure it's been uttered here and there, but not in a systemic way) and then we defend against it.

I think anytime the Doctor refers to the numbering, it's for the companion's sake. Also, I think we need to separate when he counts his regenerations ("eleventh" to Craig, "number ten once.." to Clara, etc.) from actually calling himself "The Eleventh Doctor". As for TNOTD, Clara said "you're the eleventh Doctor"...a) she could have just been talking about his regenerations, using a small "e" for eleventh, and b) She's out window into this world, so she would arbitrarily number him like we do.

So, to my (American) ear he seems to have lost his Scottish accent from the closing scenes of TotD. Anyone on the other side of the pond care to weigh in on that? It could just be we only have a few snippets of dialogue to go on.
