Mummy. Kill the Moon had no tension relating to the actual plot. Mummy did.

Well I have to disagree with the episodes feeling longer than their time slot... What gave you that idea?

The reason people are happy is because episode this season and last could of done with a few extra minutes to tie up loose ends and flesh out the world of the episodes. (Looking at you Time Heist) Even the best episodes this season - Flatline and Mummy - have suffered from a lack of a few extra minutes to flesh out the characters.

I think once that happens, episodes will be able to be perfectly tied together self-contained stories.

Flatline is awesome and it never ceases to bore me. I don't understand why these two dislike it.

Um.... Are you sure? At the beginning of every episode they bash us over the head with Clara and Danny's relationship....

Not neccesarily. We can easily ASSUME that, but that doesn't mean its true. Who knows maybe in boredum everyone halluncinated the events and overexaggerated the fact that Sky could have just gone mad. We can't assume in Listen because Moffat smashes us over the head with the fact that maybe there isn't a monster.

I am sorry but these are things I have seen in Doctor Who before. How did Midnight not have an ambiguous monster? An inside perspective to the Doctor - we had lot in the Tennant Era as well as my favourite era - McCoy's. The Doctor being afraid - Hide. Fear being normal - Rings of Akhatten. It's not anything new. I like Listen, I really do. But it is nothing new!

Good point, but that doesn't bother me too much. It wasn't really as annoying then as it is now.

It still involes Moffat taking elements of his previous succeses and labelling it by a new name. I can't think of anything new Listen brings to the table....

Shame. Just enjoy it in your own way. That's what I try to do. The only standards I apply to watching Doctor Who are my own.

I mean challenging as in something that was fresh in which people would think after watching, "Wow, what an episode. I actually haven't seen something done like that before on Doctor Who." OR "Wow, I had never looked at .... In that way before." OR "Oh! That's cool!" Something that we don't expect.

Well I find it patronizing. He is focussing more on hype then telling us a good story.

It is not really a Deus ex Machina if you compare it to Journey's End's resolution. It had been previously established that the light from the Pandorica brought life to the Dalek. We have visual details for that. With Journey's End there was literally no indication besides a couple of words to indicate who Donna was. It lacks any kind of logic.

The same type of story. Listen is simply rehashing of Blink with a touch or Midnight to make it look more unique. Just my opinion.

But his attitude of overhyping and riding it was just exploititive and patronizing. (For me atleast. I can't speak for everyone.) It was as if he was bent over me juggling and yelling the whole time, "Do you like this?!"

But I feel Moffat writes the same story over and over again because he wants to be loved the same way over and over again.

Yes. But I think Moffat took it too far. When Series 5 had finished there were lots of cheers from all the fans. This filled him with a need to create something bigger and "better," instead of somthing new and challenging. Series 5 only worked because it was fresh and interesting, not big.

I think Moffat is a very self-conscious writer. He needs people to appreciate his work. It's simply a matter of who shouts the loudest.

It would be smart to have this episode be character driven to some degree. They've been building to it with all these

That he is clever and can still entertain us like he did pre-series 6. Moffat is not the most loved showrunner in Who History....

I hope its not too character driven. That was a huge problem for Forest, Deep Breath, Kill the Moon, etc. But it did work for Flatline and Mummy, so it's a mixed bag really....

The Big Bang did it better because te ideas were clear when you put them all together. I felt very satisfied after Series 5 finished. For series 6, I simply sighed and thought, "So what?"

In my opinion, Wedding is one of the worst finales next to Doomsday. The tesselecta felt like a copout, the episode was forgetable, and it was more of a Moffat paint by numbers rather then an actual story.

I dislike about 5 of the 7 finales. I feel like New Who always wants to make things bigger. Bigger doesn't mean better. The finales should be a bit more simple. Series 5's was suprisingly quite simple for such big stakes.
