To me, the best scenes were when Danny was invisible in the TARDIS and the Promised Land scene. This series may have been flawed, but damn does it have some good scenes....

I am starting to wonder if you WANT to enjoy the series. Yes, I have been frustrated at times too, but I am certainly not looking for excuses to hate something. I want to enjoy this series, but the quality has prevented me from doing so. Wheras with you, it seems you watch Doctor Who to be negative and hate.

I'd agree, but when looking at a picture of the Teller..... You can't help but say, "My God. Look at that!"

I didn't expect Roberts to pull off a monster that was both quirky and sinister at the same time. I just wish it had more screen time and more "lurking" moments... I mean common... Weren't those lazer machine guns awesome?

I'd see this episode as fun. Not funny, but fun. Though having said that, It didn't really keep up its tone. Despite its flaws I still somewhat enjoyed this episode...

I personally found the 12th Doctor acting like the 11th more so....

And I thought this episode was the one to seal the deal of this series being a dissapointment, but no. "How wrong can a man be!"

Having said that though, this episode certainly wasn't perfect, but it has certainly restored the hype that I lost after Robot of Sherwood, Deep Breath, and of course Time Heist.

No. No. He did not. He did not!

Moffat!!!!!!! You have gone too far!

Not every Doctor has that attitude! That was the 10th and 11th Doctors who showed off to all the girls and insulted all the men! Capaldi, Hartnell, Troughton, Pertwee, Baker, Davidson, Baker, Mccoy, Mgann, and Eccelston were never that character. The Doctor overall is not like that. He is tolerant!

I also wasn't too bothered about the way the Doctor treated Danny. I actually preferred him in those scenes than the ones where he acts like the 11th Doctor - I am refering to the scene in the TARDIS where the Docor tells Clara he is going undercover. That was one of the moments in the episode that was quite jarring for me. But it did improve as it went on.

And by the way, I actually loved the Blitzer (Bring him back. Bring him back now!)

And also, I am very intrigued about Courtney, and if she keeps going down the path sheer awesomness then I am going to really want her to be the next companion...

Ok. I was a little harsh on Gareth Roberts in my comments preceeding this episode.

I have to say that this is probably the best episode Gareth Roberts has done and this episode has a respectable place on my ranking so far:

1. Listen 8/10

2. Into the Dalek 7/10

3. Time Heist 6/10

4. The Caretaker 6/10

5. Deep Breath 5/10

6. Robot of Sherwood 4/10

But as the season goes on, I don't think it will stand out as much.

Here's why:

- The plot felt shoehorned in to make way for character development. While this doesn't sound that bad on paper, it can be a major problem if the plot stops and doesn't come back for a while. I found myself thinking: Please go back to the robot assassin with lazer machine guns. On the other hand, I did find the interactions between Clara, the Doctor, and Danny to be both interesting and entertaining. I just wish we had a bit less of it and a bit more of the Doctor and Courtney and a bit more of the Blitzer stocking its prey and killing them in the shadows. To me, the episode was a bit of a game of lost and found when it comes to plot, pacing, and interesting ideas. But these problems ceased after the reveal about the truth of the Doctor and Clara. And I loved the ending. It was mysterious, well acted, well filmed, and just perfect. Possibily one of the best scenes this season.

In my opinion, 4x better than the Lodger and Closing Time combined.

Well personally, I am sick of all the flirting. Surely they can go without it? It was good at first but it just got more annoying as time went on. Repetition does do that.

I feel like they should try be more original though. To me, it feels like they aren't trying nearly as hard enough... Some people such as myself are tired of the reuse of tropes in the Whoniverse. Not the fact that they are reusing tropes in television.

Yes, but in terms of story, her being trapped in a virtual reality is more interesting and tragic when you think about it on a whole. Not as tragic as dying, but you know how Moffat is about that...

Yeah, that's true. Her exit there was more powerful, actually.

That's true, but it was done really well and it was a much more interesting dynamic then "Ok. I am a psychopath. Let me kill you. I have no other reason except the plot."

Also, Alex Kingston puts in a good performance, even if the writting is cringeworthy.

Agreed on the ruined bit, but I disagree about being needy in Name. She seemed quite independent and played a huge part in the excellent plot. I thought she was good in Series 5 too. Moffat spoiled her in Series 6. I feel like he just couldn't handle the mystery and just gave up trying to find a twist. We ended up with a boring and predictable "twist" that didn't mean anything.

She was good in the Library episode and Name of the Doctor though when she wasn't playing this role.

Come to think of it, Steven Thomson does not write good characters. The Pirates in Curse of the Black Spot, the Brothers in Journey to the Center of the TARDIS, and all the characters in this were all poor. Psi and Saibra were more defined by their skills and dialouge than any kind action of there's. (Besides their use of the shreders which turned out to be a teleport, making their apparent sacrafice worthless.) I'm sorry to say this, but the Tellers had more character then anyone in this episode.

You know how previous companions always asked the same questions the audience had?

Another thing is very strange about Clara in respect to previous companions. How come she doens't ask interesting questions?

The reason he didn't change this aspect is because it was a filler episode. I put it down more to laziness than downright sexism.
