Also, did anyone else think that the "Forest" sounded like the 456 from Children of Earth? And that the "I think it came from Miss" line..."Miss" is very close to the name of a certain scheming crazy woman who pops up every so often, so it's undoubtedly another reference to her ongoing schemes to put the Doctor and Clara in situations of danger. Missy did seem surprised that they'd survive this one, but why would she want to throw them into dangerous situations in the first place? Does she want them dead? So many questions, not long left to go now :)

@guyroul I don't think it matters if the kids can act, which, most of the time, they can. Admittedly I didn't much much of Harley Bird's Ruby in this episode, who was very grating, but the rest of them were great imo, and it doesn't detract from the dark tone to have one or two more lighthearted episodes; if anything it just makes a great contrast in tone against the rest of the series, augmenting its darkness.

On second rewatch, I must admit the dialogue in this episode was utterly stupendous, with this particular scene just being the epitome of poetry in words: 


"You go. This...this is enough for me."

"What?! Coronal ejections, geomagnetic storms, how often do you get a playlist like that?"

"I was a soldier, I put myself at risk. I didn't try too hard to survive but somehow here I am. And now I can see what I nearly lost. And it's enough. I don't want to see more things, I want to see the things in front of me more clearly. There are wonders here, Clara Oswald. Bradley saying please, that's a wonder. One person is more amazing, harder to understand, but more amazing than universes."

"Really? What person is that, then?"

*sly glance* 

*intense kiss*

Danny and Clara are so cute together, and this scene was beautifully written and directed. I'm pretty sure it was Moffat who wrote this particular bit, but the dialogue throughout the episode was witty, colourful and very high standard :)

@TardisBoy I hope there's a reference to that. I would have preferred an episode addressing it as it was a pretty big unresolved subplot, but a reference would still be fine. Or maybe they agreed to a partnership and now there's two Kate's and two Osgood's running UNIT more efficiently :S

@Notsosmartguy's got no strings on him @supermoff needs answers! NOW! That's a fair idea, though I couldn't bring myself to do it. True surprise is a delicate thing, and when you get it, it's the best feeling in the world, so I could never look at spoilers, and, given BBC attitude at the minute, it seems unlikely that anything will spoil anyway...but we'll see.

@Notsosmartguy's got no strings on him But where is it going. Where?! Moffat sure is playing an epic long game though, and he clearly has planned this whole thing very carefully since about 2012, so I'm pretty sure - whether this goes - it will be epic!

@BLINKANDYOUREDEAD @supermoff needs answers! NOW! Just new who atm. But out of the small proportion of classic stories that I've seen, it wouldn't affect the upper rankings that much.

NOW! @The Living Angel is Regenerating  @Clara Laurinda At least we're completely out of the loop, I really love the fact they've made it unclear who's gonna live and who's gonna die, unlike in previous pivotal episodes. It makes everything that much more tense and terrifying. This is television at its absolute best :)

@TardisBoy You might be right, as most two part finales don't have a next time trailer in the first part for the second part (I think anyway...it's been such a long time since we've had a two-part finale I can't remember XD).

Listen: 10.0/10 [1st] 



Flatline: 9.6/10 [7th]

Into the Dalek - 9.4/10 [12th] 

Deep Breath - 9.3/10 [16th] 

Mummy on the Orient Express - 9.3/10 [17th] 

The Caretaker - 9.1/10 [20th] 

Kill The Moon - 8.8/10 - [27th] 

Time Heist - 8.4/10 [41st] 

Robot of Sherwood - 8.3/10 [44th] 

In The Forest of the Night -  7.5/10 [69th] 

So indeed, it was definitely the weakest of this series for me, but it's not bad. It's above average even, but still nowhere near as good as anything this series, but every series has its one local minimum.

@TardisBoy I like the second two theories, but I'm not too fond on the first. A lot of her character development would be lost that way. But I'm starting to get the impression she's some form of Clara, after all she says "You know who I am", so she may indeed be an echo!

@TardisBoy She is pretty intense. It's practically frightening to see her give a quasi-villainous performance :S

@TheOncomingFish Indeed, it would be, but it depends how they take it. If they're not careful, it might erase some of her brilliant character development, but the thought of a in-context justification for Clara's actions could be one of the best and biggest twists ever :P
