Flatline easily, without a shadow of a doubt. 'Flatline' was a great episode, 8/10. Whereas 'Mummy' was a decent episode, but too slow and boring for my liking, 6/10.

Ehh, yet again another episode that was voted far higher than I would have scored it. I found 'Mummy' a decent episode, but boring in places. Overall 6/10. Am I the only one who's just not feeling Series 8? In my opinion it's the weakest series since Series 4. Not a single episode I've been able to score higher than 8/10. Still waiting to be impressed. Hopefully the finale changes all that.

@Master Michael Moon No you're not the only one. It's a good episode, but far from being anywhere near the best in my opinion. I gave it 7/10. It's lack of explaining anything just irritated me.

8/10. Pretty good. Still waiting for an outstanding episode this series though. I'm just glad that for once I wasn't let down by high expectations. 


Disappointed that the old guy didn't wind up with a painful death. His character was so easy to hate, that I was waiting and waiting for him to be killed. Complete and utter moron.


One thing I don't understand though is the interaction at the end between The Doctor and Clara? Why didn't The Doctor tell her that she had done good? She had by all accounts done a spectacular job of saving the Earth. So why on Earth didn't The Doctor give her a well deserved complement? It just seems there is more and more friction, which is possibly foreshadowing for Clara's permanent exit.

I'll be honest, I don't like it. I like the gold colour and the idea of cogs with character's faces inside them, but Clara's pose just looks wrong in my opinion. I think if a different pose was used, probably with Clara facing forward, it would look great. 

So happy that the Deep Breath Cinema Panel will be included as an extra. Unlike Doctor Who Extra after 'Deep Breath', my cinema gave no indication that anything more was to follow, and so I had completely forgotten about the post-show panel and walked out. By the time the panel started I was already out of the cinema screen, and so I wasn't about to walk back in. Glad that I'll finally have the chance to watch it. Is that all of the extras or is there more to follow? Seems a lot shorter than usual. What about the cinema exclusive Strax scene? Or is that exclusive to the 'Deep Breath' DVD?

@The Finn @ahunter8056 @Gustaff Whether the viewers liked it or not is beside the point. My point was responding to Gustaff's point that some viewers expect a Rose return every couple of years.

Reply

@Gustaff She hardly shows up every couple of years. Her first comeback in 2008 was something that had been planned since her departure. Her second comeback in 2010 was a brief cameo to end the Tenth Doctor era. Her third (and final to date) comeback in 2014 was an entirely different character.

Already read these interviews and enjoyed them. It would still be great to have one last Rose Tyler appearance alongside Nine or Ten (during their time in the TARDIS), meeting another TARDIS crew (preferably Twelve and Clara). Even if Billie Piper has changed a lot since 2006, it would still be great to have one last Rose Tyler appearance. However with that said, I'd be happy to see her back as many times as possible. If it weren't for Series 8 Clara, Rose would still be top of my list of favourite companions.

Went with Doctor Who for best drama, and Jenna Coleman for best performance. Nothing against Peter Capaldi as he has given great performances in the role and he is a great actor, but Jenna Coleman has been nothing short of revolutionarily brilliant this year and it would be a crime for her not to win.

I am honestly shocked at the Clara/Doctor poll. I fully expected Clara to win, and I don't understand why anyone would vote for The Doctor. In my opinion, The Doctor was 100%, entirely wrong. I understand what The Doctor's motivation might have been, but he still did it entirely the wrong way.

Ehh, I'd give it 6/10. Decent, but slightly boring in places, just as I expected it to be. Was never terribly excited about this episode, and my expectations were spot on. A very nice surprise to see Clara in it. Was unsure as to whether or not she'd appear, although it was very surprising to see her and The Doctor getting on very well at the start, but at least it was addressed 5 minutes later. 



That last scene. Oh my god that last scene! Absolutely magnificent! Loved it. Such a happy scene and a lovely moment, with spectacular acting from Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman. After last week's sad ending, I'm glad to see it pay off with a lovely happy ending.




To conclude:

@Ottoman14 I feel a similar way. I'm only looking forward to this episode purely just because it's a new episode of Doctor Who, but mainly because it's the only one to go until 'Flatline'. Been looking forward to Flatline since the first filming photos of the ep surfaced. Even more so now that it's been revealed to be a Clara-centric episode.

@TARDlSkey @ahunter8056 Well, I say no interest, but I watch a few here and there, but by and large I usually only go to the cinema 2-4 times a year. The past year the only new films I watched were The Hobbit Desolation of Smaug, The Hunger Games Catching Fire and Divergent.

@Clara Laurinda @ahunter8056 I would think so too. Fortunately I'm not that out of touch. :P I may not have seen any of Charlie Chaplin's work, but from my understanding he's a silent film era actor who was crucial to that period.

I'm somewhat familiar with the name, but not his work. If he does eventually land a role on Who, I just hope he is a good actor.

@Beasts_a_Snarling How does abandoning a good friend and refusing to give help when asked for it count as respect? He could have allowed them to decide their own future without abandoning Clara. He could have stayed there and given help when asked for it.

Reply

Definitely Clara's. The Doctor was such a **** in that episode. Abandoning his companion and putting her on the spot on a critical decision, flat-out refusing to help her was "respecting" her? Yeah right! It baffles me as to why the Twelfth Doctor was written as being so cold and cruel. Hopefully he turns into the character we all know and like by the end of the series, as at the moment he is so fundamentally unlikeable.

@Terileptils On The Orient Express Yes, but every Doctor has also had likeable elements to them. So far, the Twelfth Doctor's likeable elements are too few and far between.

Ehh, I'll only give it 6/10. A couple points:


1) 7 episodes in and the Twelfth Doctor still isn't really The Doctor. I know that Moffat has aimed for a darker Doctor, but come on. The Twelfth Doctor is far too reckless and selfish to be The Doctor. 


2) It really worries me that Clara will be leaving in the Christmas special. They wouldn't be having all this buildup to nothing. I really, really, REALLY hope that Clara and The Doctor work things out, because I really hope we don't lose Clara.


3) Courtney was absolutely awful and irritating the whole way through. Can no one write children properly anymore (with the exception of Neil Cross)?

Definitely 'The Lodger', easily. Next would be The Caretaker, followed by Closing Time, followed by The Shakespeare Code, followed by The Unicorn & The Wasp, followed by Planet Of The Dead. The Unicorn & The Wasp and Planet Of The Dead are both episodes that I have no love for. The Shakespeare Code is a good episode, but has no believeability. Closing Time was a decent episode. The Caretaker was a good episode, whereas The Lodger is pure comedy gold.

I completely understand his reasoning. For such an important character such as Ian, a simple one-off reference just wouldn't be enough. He would need to be a significant part of the story. Hopefully we get that in a future episode in the near future.

Two years already? Wow, time flies. Amy remains my third favourite companion. A brilliant character with a wonderful accent, even if she lacked the realism of having a proper family. As for Rory, there was a long time in which I couldn't stand him. However by now I've warmed to him post-'Cold Blood'. I'm so glad that Amy got a cameo in 'The Time Of The Doctor'. The Eleventh Doctor's era could not be complete without one final appearance from Amy Pond.

@Scootersfood  @ahunter8056 I just got bored watching it. Few Doctor Who episodes can do that to me, but every time I try to watch 'Into The Dalek' I just get bored. The soldiers were badly written I feel. They're supposed to be the good guys, and we're supposed to care for the good guys, but when Ross died I just felt "okay, there's a character I didn't care about gone...and I still don't care". The soldiers added nothing of value to the episode, and may as well not have been there.

It was a pretty good episode, I gave it 8/10. There is still yet to be anything that makes me think "wow!" so far this series. We've had consistently good episodes (with the exception of the painfully awful 'Into The Dalek'), but nothing outstanding so far. Personally I'm quite looking forward to 'Flatline' though.

Ehh. This week's Extra episode was better, but still has major flaws that definitely need fixing. For a start, the viewers of Extra are not likely to be 5 years old. So why is the script written as though it's main viewership consists of those who have only just started school? We don't need moronic questions such as "if you had invisibility, what would you do?", or "what's Clara like as a teacher?". Leave those questions to a future Doctor Who themed CBBC show, if they ever make one again. At least this episode we actually got SOME technical explanations.

I went with 'Time Heist'. 'Journey To The Centre Of The TARDIS' is a poor episode, so that was definitely out of the running. 'Curse Of The Black Spot' and 'Time Heist' were both decent episodes, but I feel that 'Time Heist' was just that little bit better.
