@Planet of the Deaf @supermoff is your new lodger- I mean, caretaker. And so, by extension, looks slightly like Capaldi XD The Scovox does have some mighty fine eyebrows on closer inspection...

The Scovox Blitzer is a seriously impressive looking contraption on closer inspection. That's certainly one of the best robots the show has designed, which is saying something! It still looks like a weird combination of an owl and Garrus from ME, but it definitely looks like the deadly weapon it's supposed to be, even if the voice sounds like a weird cross between Handles and Brian from the confused.com adverts as someone pointed out the other day XD

That top picture. Is. Gorgeous. Loving the school setting too; this episode looks like a mad mix of School Reunion and The Power of Three :P

Stats roundup

 The standard deviations

Deep Breath - 1.726392884 

Into the Dalek - 1.72299733 

Robot of Sherwood - 2.09385798 

Listen - 1.636464741 

So Listen is the least divisive episode of the series so far with Robot of Sherwood remaining as the most divisive. 

Position within the Best of Matt Polls 

Listen has the exact same score as The Impossible Astronaut / Day of the Moon, which is funny as both these stories are my all time favourites :P 

Series averages 

So far series 8 has a non-weighted average episode score of 8.191. Compared with Series 5-7 (as per the Best of Matt Smith polls): 

Series 5: 8.020076923 

Series 6: 7.729714286 

Series 7: 7.555333333 

So, on this basis, Series 8 is beating the other Moffat series, but naturally scores will mature and change over time.

8.918 is a great result. I was hoping it could pip 9/10 but at least it's close :) I'm surprised Blink won the Listen vs. Blink poll really, as, judging by the comments, it seemed Listen had the edge. Well, in any case, both episodes are destined to be classics, with Blink already one.

@The Lazy Caretaker Cat  Eh, she was all right, I just feel each companion managed to improve on the one that came before. Taken on her own, I suppose she's actually quite a good character, but, over the years, she's been buried under the brilliance of Martha, then Donna, then Amy then, on top, Clara. Relativity is always an important factor here I guess, I remember loving her as a kid! :)

@ Notsosmartguy The new Caretaker. @Antee991166 Series 1 Rose was brilliant imo. Rose + Nine + Captain Jack is one of the best TARDIS teams ever I feel, especially with their bantering in Boom Town :D

@Antee991166 @supermoff is your new lodger- I mean, caretaker. I'd agree with all of those :) Going further, Donna would be the sort of person who'd think she's a Hufflepuff but actually has the spirit of a Gryffindor, and I think River would be a Slytherin. This is fun :P

From the few episodes I've seen with Jamie, I generally like his character. Impulsive, but he had a great relationship with the Doctor, and he was a true Gryffindor (that was just the best description that came to mind XD). So a very happy birthday to him!


Rose is far from my favourite companion, but she had her moments, mostly alongside 9 but also alongside 10. Billie's a great actress, as she showed magnificently in the 50th (she was utterly spellbinding as the Moment). Plus we went to the same secondary school, so, all in all, a very big happy birthday to her indeed  :P

@Antee991166 @supermoff is your new lodger- I mean, caretaker. True, Series 7 often squandered some great monsters, like the Shakri in TPOT and the Vigil and Grandfather in TROA. And even the Whisperman now that I think about it. Whilst, as you say, in this series they are being utilised much better! :D

This series has had some incredible monster designs, from the Half-Face man, to the Robot Knights, to the Teller, and now this Scovox Blitzer, which, again, looks like a pretty awesome design and has one of the best monster names in a long time :P

@ Notsosmartguy The new Caretaker. @Aztecs, Daleks and Cavemen Maybe, but I don't think it will be limited to robots. If it's a paradise, I'm sure a lot of people will be looking for it, and non-robots can get in too as we've seen.

@TheCyberDoctor isn't a Lodger @supermoff is your new lodger- I mean, caretaker. The Lodger was brilliant, I agree, perfect for 11's character and the comedy was top notch. Even James Corden managed to give a decent performance, and that football scene is, for me, one of the best 11 scenes ever, just sublime. But I also really like The Shakespeare Code. It's cheesy in parts and its portrayal of Shakespeare very questionable, but it was fun and had witches, so it's still pretty damn good :P

Gareth Roberts is a pretty solid writer in my opinion, who's a deft hand at lighthearted comedy and humourous social situations. If this is anything like The Lodger, as hinted by Moffat then this should be another fine entry by the man. 

1.The Lodger - 9/10


3.The Shakespeare Code - 8/10

3.The Unicorn and the Wasp -  7/10 


4: Planet of the Dead - 7/10

5. Closing Time - 6/10

@ Notsosmartguy The new Caretaker. @supermoff is your new lodger- I mean, caretaker. Frobisher was quite prolific, so possibly. The Caretaker has quite a few possibilities of addressing continuity, whether it be an Ian cameo, a location where people may recognise his face, etc, so I hope they take advantage of these possibilities!

@ Notsosmartguy The new Caretaker. @supermoff is your new lodger- I mean, caretaker.  @galactic_unicorn That's a great fan-theory and I hope it's true. It kind of makes sense too; a lot of calculation went into freezing Gallifrey, so a lot of calculation must go into unfreezing it too, and, without crossing his own timeline again, he must undergo the calculations himself this time.

@galactic_unicorn The Clara arc I'm happy with, but I was hoping for at least a reference to the finding Gallifrey arc in the last few episodes, but to no avail. It's a little disconcerting, but I'm still pretty sure that Gallifrey will be referenced or become integral to the arc at some point in this series. Otherwise, after how Day and Time so effectively set it up, it would be very questionable to not even mention something so seemingly important to the Doctor.

@ Notsosmartguy The new Caretaker. @supermoff is your new lodger- I mean, caretaker. It's just a thought, and unlikely to happen, but it would be a nice idea in tying up different elements of the stories in this series. But, in any case, the Teller must return some day. It's too good a design to waste, and you can do a lot with the concept :P

@ Notsosmartguy The new Caretaker. They should return at some point, possibly even this series. I kind of like the idea of Missy using a Teller to "judge" people on whether they should enter heaven, by looking through their subconscious for sins/virtues/sacrifies whatever, like a Saint Peter kind of thing, though that might be descending the whole Doctor Who heaven concept into overly religious imagery :P Plus doesn't explain robots XD

Great picks, though I'd say the best scene is "The Memory Wipe" scene, as, especially in retrospect, it was clever, well edited, and was a great way to jump into the plot. Plus, the Architect was pretty awesome in this scene. Also, the scene in the Bank Floor with the slow motion shots and the introduction of the Teller was pretty awesome.

Also, I realise DWTV was sneaky in the Hints and Tips for Time Heist. One of the coded statements was "Who is the architect". Turns out that was a statement rather than a question :P

With a story as professional as its direction, Time Heist is a satisfying and unique sci-fi take on the heist genre, with a few genuine surprises, a fantastic design and concept for a monster, and a very exciting and compelling plot. 

Supermoff Score: 8.5/10


To date:

Deep Breath: 9/10

Into the Dalek: 9.25/10

Robot of Sherwood: 8.5/10

Listen: 10/10
