@mrclever I think elements of it will pass over into Series 9. Certainly so if Gallifrey is involved in this finale.

@77Serenade @ Notsosmartguy Agent of C.L.A.R.A. @supermoff, agent of C.L.A.R.A. Well we won't know that until after this episode really. To be honest, there's an aspect to 12's Doctor that makes me feel he could work very well in a fairytale genre, maybe even eclipsing 11, but it remains to be seen. :)

@ Notsosmartguy Agent of C.L.A.R.A. @supermoff, agent of C.L.A.R.A. @usmandikkoladan Indeed, that's one of the things I love most about this direction. The companion, traditionally, is meant to rationalise and steady the Doctor, keep him from being corrupted and to ensure his morality isn't perturbed, but here we have a  companion being corrupted herself, partly as a result of the Doctor , turning the very concept on its head. It's incredibly exciting :D

@usmandikkoladan @supermoff, agent of C.L.A.R.A. @ Notsosmartguy Agent of C.L.A.R.A. That's actually my main theory. I honestly feel like Clara will be corrupted by Missy as part of her plan, and used against the Doctor in some way, perhaps without Clara even realising. The changes in her personality are certainly angling for that direction, anyway.

@TardisBoy I like the fan idea that the calculations on the chalkboard pertained to Gallifrey and how to free it from stasis. Of course, that could still very much be a plot element of the finale.

@Antee991166 @supermoff, agent of C.L.A.R.A. That's a good point. Even though the mission wasn't always addressed in Series 7, they were still on said mission I suppose, meaning the arc was always technically in play. Not so much here I guess, with them being oblivious. It definately makes things more exciting :P

And "Clara’s walk down a questionable path continues". In the words of 12, Yes, that is a thing! It's a really exciting direction to take Clara, I feel :D

@Antee991166 Hmm I think the Series 7 arc felt a little lighter than this one (in reality, it probably wasn't, but it still felt lighter if that makes sense), but I feel this one is, at least, much better handled.

I have missed the fairytale elements, to be honest. Doctor Who does fairy tale really well, and Series 5 was incredible with its integration of the genre. It'll be nice to see the 12th Doctors demeanor juxtaposed with a fairytale theme :P

@MrRazza is regenerating @supermoff, agent of C.L.A.R.A. Honestly yes, I wasn't expecting much from it at all until the first clips were released, even after Mummy's greatness, and even then I was completely blown away by how amazing it was. The anticipation didn't really effect me to be honest. I anticipated to give it a 6.5/10, and I ended up giving it a 9.6...so, yeah, unexpected gem :P

Great review DWTV! I honestly dunno what to make of this episode, it looks so different (which is usually a good thing, but we'll have to see). It'll probably be loved by critics but it will most likely split fans right down the middle, especially with child actors which always tend to be controversial (though I think, 99% of the time, they're brilliant). 

Ultimately, I'm probably most looking forward to any scene that leads in to the finale, so I'm glad there is "one scene", at least, relevant to the arc. I would ask what the trailer for Dark Water looks like, but I very much doubt they would release that for advance reviews. 

But ultimately, Moffat thinks very highly of this episode in particular, so a part of me expects this to be an unexpected gem, much like Flatline :)

The most accurate figures available, the L+7 figures truly sure how Series 8 is doing brilliantly and pulling in massive audiences. If we calculate the series average from everything from Deep Breath to Mummy on the Orient Express, then the average figure is 7.863 million. Bearing in mind that this figure doesn't include the L+7 results for half the episodes of Series 8 (Time Heist to Mummy), Series 8 ranks as such against the other series:  

Series 4 - 8.423 

Series 1 - 7.948 

Series 2 - 7.867 

Series 8 - 7.863 

Series 7 - 7.825

Series 5 - 7.729 

Series 3 - 7.658 

So, Series 8 will probably surmount Series 2 and maybe even 1 when the L+7 figures for the remaining episodes are released. And, even then, these figures don't take into account all the views for an episode (and, these days especially, a significant proportion of views will be via media impossible to measure), nor international views which, themselves, are massive and increasing. 

And so, unequivocally, Doctor Who is not just doing well, it's doing bloody fantastic !

@Planet of the Deaf @supermoff, agent of C.L.A.R.A. As you point out, elements are indeed present between both iterations, but overall they still feel essentially very different, and I'm starting to think it's been done on purpose as part of this arc. :s

You could have two completely different tones which you could keep fresh between weeks. I like it :P

However, despite the amazing developments given to Clara's character this series...it's causing a bit of a jarring discontinuity between Series 7 Clara and Series 8 Clara, which really don't feel like the same character (of course, there could be a plot point to this). And I don't agree with all of Series 8 Clara's developments (although, at a dramatic level, I'm sure they'll all pay off), but one thing I do love about what they're doing with Clara's character is that they are making her more similar to the Doctor, which is a very exciting - and frightening - development.

He doesn't get a choice from Clara :P I do hope there's a scene at some point where he actually hugs her. It's one of the reasons why I love Capaldi's Doctor so much, is that every small expression of warmth feels really genuine and heartfelt, so if he hugged her, that would be the epitome of "Awwwwwww" :P

@sontaran17 @ Notsosmartguy Agent of C.L.A.R.A. The comedy moments really stand out too. I mean, that Capaldi dance in Flatline was so unexpected, and it was adorable because of the contrasts it made against his usual behaviour. It's moments like that when I think he's kind of the most...huggable Doctor (not that he'd let you!).

@ Notsosmartguy Agent of C.L.A.R.A. True, it's just taken some time to expose the true Doctor at his core. I think he's a really great Doctor, and after Mathieson's two episodes, he really is the Doctor :)

@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Tigger... Or Rather Tiger.. Well, he was being stubborn and a bit closed minded, but that didn't really deserve a slap I guess. But fair point about the writers, evidently they are seeking to manipulate our emotions, but most shows do that. It's hardly a new thing, but in the case of Series 8, clearly they want to make Capaldi's Doctor questionable and controversial so, indeed, they will be trying to make us side with Clara, but I don't necessarily see that as a bad thing, just an outlet of character development.
