How has this series been dark? I don't see it. I'd say it is about as dark as series 7 was...

He's probably my favourite New Who Doctor, but he'll never topple 7, 2, 1, or 4 for me.

Capaldi shined everytime he appeared on screen. He has really made the role his own. I just get more and more excited every time I see him on screen.

Mummy. It was a good old Classic Doctor Who story with a nice genuine feeling to it.

Not bad. But it hasn't really rectified my lack of excitment for Series 8.

I liked the ideas in it. It was well paced, but some things were underdeveloped. It would have been much better if it was just 15 minutes longer. The quick resolutions wasn't very nice either after the fantastic one last week. The Sonic Screwdriver should be destroyed because technically Clara didn't save the day. The sonic did.

One of the best shots in the series next to the one of the Tellers walking into the green paradise and the incredibly symmetrical shot of Robin and The Doctor in the space ship.

Speaking of Iron Man.... Here's what I think of New Who's poor interpretation:

"Have they lost their mind? Are they deaf or are they blind? Can they walk or talk? Yes they can but their quite silly!"

Ahem. Sorry. Got a bit carried away...

You know what annoys me most about New Who's Cybermen? The way they walk. It is more sinister for them to walk like human beings. I feel that this is where the problem stems from. If they fix this, I will take back everything I said about Moffat....

I disagree. The Cybermen should he almost human. Like in the 60s. That's what makes them so scary.

Ok we can't keep going on with this yes no yes no.... The relationship is boring because we know about these very human affairs. There is no tension in our knowledge of them. It is just pale in comparison to the Mummy which is why we are watching this episode to begin with.

I think what was missing was the focus. The episode kept swaying from the Doctor/Clara relationship to the Mummy storyline. (let's face it; the latter was practically a subplot) I'm sorry if you enjoyed it, but for me the episode felt like being on a rickety ship in a heavy storm. The episode just couldn't balance out the two ideas. If it had been a two-parter I probably would have enjoyed it more. Big adventures like Kill the Moon, Mummy on the Oriental Express, and Time Heist deserve more run time to properly flesh out their worlds. Series 8 is putting on more weight then it can handle. Carrying both the overarching relationships and the space adventures requires more run time. If time cannot be added, then drop the weight. Series 8 never needed to be huge and expansive. It could have done better with less. Series 4 and 5 are prime examples of creating more with less. Series 4 dropped the weight of expansive settings. When it did have expansive settings, there were 2 parters. Series 5 dropped overdeveloped characters. For character-driven episodes like Amy's Choice, the character was intertwined with the plot. This series, I have enjoyed the simpler stories like Into the Dalek and Listen. Though they are quite uninspired, they atleast knew how to manage their weight. Hopefully Flatline has the advantage of simplicity.

I would have enjoyed the episode a lot more if there was a little less focus on the Clara/Doctor relationship. It was done well, but there was just too much focus on it. Every time the plot got started, it would go back to their relationship. I really want to enjoy the episodes as self-contained stories, but the series character arc is making it very difficult.

Too much so. The arc in Series 6 was so bombastic that it anhilated everything in its path. Series 7 was just Moffat being lazy.

I think that it is written in the RTD style. But Moffat is a little more subtle in the usuage of it.

I think he could do with a bit more material, but calling the show Clara Who is a complete exaggeration.

Have you been around for the last 5 years? If you have, then you'd know that it has gotten stale like a piece of bread after 75 years. The message is just shoved in our faces instead of carefully laid out to us with subtlety. An episode like this, would probably not do it the way prefered because the premise is a huge idea. It shouldn't try.

You are telling me about opinions and you say that the comparisons are fairly obvious in the very next sentence. Wow. Personally I don't see that. The comparisons may be obvious to you, but not to me. Don't tell me about opinions when you are imposing what you saw PERSONALLY on to me.

Why are people comparing this to a Classic episode in the Hinchecliffe Era? Apart from the premise, I don't see any comparison. The style is completly different. To me it is a slightly altered pale imitation of the Unicorn and the Wasp.

I don't hate it, I am just hugely dissapointed. Every time I started liking it, the episode cut to RTD-esque nonsense that I thought we left behind. Yes we needed some of those moments, but they lasted way too long. Some may say that is tension in anticiption for the monster, but it wasn't. It was just wasting time to make up for the lack of tension.

I think the pacing and the lack of focus are huge ones. The episode didn't really know what it wanted to do and even if it did, it had little time to do it. I feel like the writer thought that he could adjust the pacing to suit the episode's needs, but it just ended up feeling very jarring.
