Wouldn't mind if Gaiman tried his Screenwriter 2000 at a Capaldi script.  "The Doctor's Wife" was an enjoyable little romp.  "In Silver" was a bit of a nightmare, what with those awful little brats running around (and the characters they portrayed were even worse.)

Then there were the Cybermen who one moment are moving across a room in a flash faster than anyone can even say, "Hey, look!  There's a Cyberman over... "  Then later, when approaching Clara and friends, the Cybermen are so slow, they might possibly have been stopping to smell the daffodils.

@Sharaz_Jek @Notsosmartguy's got no strings on him While I thought "Daleks in Manhattan/Evolution of" was quite awful, I did enjoy "Sontaran Stratagem/Poison Sky" and initially rated it extremely high.  That was because to me, those episodes seemed like a tribute to the Pertwee/Unit era.  On repeat viewings, it doesn't hold up quite as well, but I still like at very much.  As for Helen Raynor's gender?  Trust me, it's just fine with me!  (Uh...  was that sexist?  Sorry.)

@ilyootha, a proud member of C.L.A.R.A. @BazHood I like Timelash enough to rate it a 5/10.  The Borad is pretty cool.  Love the blue-faced android.  The 6th Doctor's time-manipulator thingy is neato-keen.  I didn't know who Paul Darrow was when I first saw Timelash, and I thought his character was great.  Also love the Third Doctor/Jo Grant reference.  Out of 219 Doctor Who stories which I've seen (not counting any Capaldi episodes at this point) Timelash, for me, comes in at Number 148.  Twin Dilemma comes in at 189.

@ohjanetoh There was the episode of "The Simpsons" in which Homer fell out of his 2D existence into 3D.  According to Wikipedia, it was part of the "Treehouse of Horror VI" episode, aired in 1995.  Eventually, Homer falls into a black hole and falls out of it into our real world in a live-action segment filmed in West Hollywood, California.  I remember it was considered highly original at the time.

And just so I'm not misinterpreted here, I love Flatline and think it's the best episode so far this series.

@TardisBoy Don't you still go ahead and rank all your 10/10 episodes and then all your 9/10 episodes?  I rated both Flatline and Mummy 9/10.  But for me, Flatline gets the nod.


Just for the sake of providing an example, for all Doctor Who episodes, I currently rate 36 episodes at 9/10.


My top 9/10 episodes currently are:


Blink

Flatline

Day of the Daleks

Name of the Doctor

Tomb of the Cybermen

An Unearthly Child

The Ark in Space

The Time Warrior

Mummy on the Orient Express

@Doctor hates tigers @The MasterDoctor It seemed, right after "KTM" aired, that the majority of comments were negative.  Now though, it seems most comments are favorable.  I myself found the episode so ludicrous in it's science that it's beyond redemption.  (Though there's certainly always the chance that I will eventually look upon it more favorably.)

The girl (whose name I have forgotten) who tagged along in the TARDIS was just one massive cliche.  (Strange because in "The Caretaker", I liked the character.  She had been written better in that one.)  The writer took no care to include any actual science.  It was all over the place.  To top it all off...  "An egg" - ???!!!  


Now, a number of previous comments went for the "You believe a man can travel in space and time in a Police Box, but you can't believe the moon is an egg?"  I don't accept that as an argument at all.  Perhaps if the moon in question had been orbiting some planet in some distant galaxy.  Maybe that would have withstood a suspension of disbelief.  As it was, the episode asked us to believe that "our" moon is an egg and that there's a great big dragonfly in there and it has been for millions of years.  


Then there was the bit where the writer decided that we viewers (those who he thought would accept a humongous dragonfly fetus gestating in our moon) would - on the other hand - NOT accept Earth's sky being moon-less at the conclusion of the episode.  So the writer went and put another moon up there in place of the one which had just cracked.  He should have gone for leaving Earth without a moon.  Except of course, that previous Doctor Who stories have featured Earth's moon further into the future.


Then besides all that, there was the Doctor's declaration that THIS moon/egg/dragonfly was THEE reason that humans decided to venture back into space.  Bull-hockey!  The vast majority of humans would not have witnessed the dragonfly emerging from the moon/egg and would therefore have no reason to believe it ever happened.  After all, as far as they would be concerned, the "moon" was still right up there where it had always been!  


Sorry to go off like this and write so much.  If you made it this far, thanks for reading.  (Trust me, I could go on and on right now, but I'm going to stop myself.)  Right now, as it is, I consider "Kill The Moon" to be one of the absolute worst episodes of DW ever.  Just above "Night Terrors", "Warriors of the Deep" and "Four To Doomsday".  However, even these "worst of" (my opinion) stories are more watchable than most of what passes as televisual entertainment these days.

"There were some scenes I didn’t like however – the Doctor’s hand coming about of the TARDIS looked a bit too silly for my liking. Call me a cynic if you like, but this was especially noticeable in the scene where the Doctor tries to move the TARDIS from inside it. Funnily enough it looked like a little TARDIS snail, but I thought it was a bit cringe worthy, especially at a rather serious stage of the episode."


This is one of my most favorite scenes in the episode.  Though I can see how the tiny TARDIS hand-crawl might be seen as "cringe worthy" by some, I thought it was an obvious solution to the problem at...  uh...  hand.


The situation and moments leading up to the hand-crawl were quite tense and yes, very serious at that stage of the episode.  That's why I thought it was so brilliant a resolution and that laugh-out-loud moment (yes, I definitely laughed out loud) was much needed right there and then.

Interesting that so many have equated the hand-crawl scene to "Thing" from The Addams Family.  It never crossed my mind on first view.  Though I can certainly see it now.

Just for the sake of writing it, "Flatline" is now my favorite episode of Series 8.  Just one episode ago, I wondered if there would be another episode this series which could top "Mummy".  I'm delighted that there actually was!  Perhaps there will be three more?!

Can't say the trailer for "Flatline" did much for me.  Of the above photos, only two piqued my interest.  The Doctor in the bizarre eye-wear and much more so, the Doctor struggling to get out of the teeny, tiny, little itty-bitty TARDIS.  (Isn't it adorable?!)  Now THAT looks like fun!

"So let's hear some of your theories!"

My theory is that Moffat is so busy with all he does on DW and with Sherlock, and with arranging "round-the-world" publicity jaunts and attending award ceremonies, that he simply skimmed through the script for "Kill the Moon" and completely missed the part where the writer had the Doctor speak the line, "Earth's moon...  it's an egg."

I'm actually thinking at it from a different direction.  I think we have seen the beginning of the 12th Doctor's transformation from "sometimes cruel/never cowardly" to "never cruel/never cowardly".  I think (and hope) Clara will be sticking around and helping the 12th in getting his hearts to grow in size and become all nice and caring, just like the Grinch!

@robertgrimm "The return to the Coal Hill School and Totter's Lane was the 7th Doctor, not the 6th. It was in Remembrance of the Daleks. Ace was there."

The 6th Doctor returned to the Coal Hill School area (not the school itself) and the junkyard at Totter's Lane in the story, "Attack of the Cybermen".  Just prior to the TARDIS materializing, there is a small sign which reads, "I. M. Foreman - 76 Totter's Lane".  When the 6th Doctor exits the TARDIS, he glances around and says, "This looks familiar."  Later, after searching around the neighborhood, they return to the junkyard and the 6th Doctor sees the "Totter's Lane" sign.  He then says to Peri (calling her the wrong name,) "Look, Susan!"

The 6th Doctor was the first to return to the area of Coal Hill School (though not the school itself.)  The 6th revisited the junkyard at Totter's Lane which the 1st Doctor had materialized the TARDIS in all those years ago.

Of course, the 6th Doctor era also gave a "nod back" to the 2nd Doctor's era by having the 6th and 2nd have an adventure together along with Jamie.  The 6th also revisited a planet first visited by the Third Doctor in the episode, "Timelash".  (Though we never did see the Third's visit there.)

If Ian Chesterton were to be featured in an episode, I would want it to be for the entire story and not just a cameo.  Of course, Ian has no info pertaining to the Doctor's ability to regenerate, so he would never guess that the "Caretaker" was the Doctor.  How fun it would be if the situation arose in which Mr. Chesterton, accompanying the Caretaker, happens upon a big blue police box sitting in the Caretaker's workroom!  The story would also just have to involve an accidental trip in the TARDIS to who knows where!  That's right...  WHO knows where!  And yes, I would hope that the widower Ian would tell the Doctor of his long life with his bride, Barbara.

Not sure how "Time Heist" can be a parody of bank heist films when pretty much every bank heist film is already a parody of bank heist films.

Thank you for a spot-on review.  "Time Heist" was filled with "seen it before" moments and not just from those other bank heist films but from Doctor Who itself.  

Oh, but you forgot to mention those amazing "crawl space" duct shafts which were so gigantic that I'm surprised they didn't have elevators inside them.  Imagine being a client of this most secure bank in the Universe and finding out that it comes equipped with four-person sized duct shafts protected by a label reading "No admittance Under Any Circumstance - This Means You".

I've been having trouble for years (since the return of the show in 2005) with understanding a "few lines" in probably every episode.  For me, it's words being spoken "very quickly". Matt Smith often talked very fast.  Jenna Coleman does it now sometimes.  I know that in one of the trailers for the new series, I had to ask online about something Capaldi's Doctor was saying.  It turned out to be something like, "But have there been any other murders".  I can't say that I've been having trouble understanding his accent though.  I had more trouble understanding the sci-fi "plot" (and it's gold arrow to the spaceship resolution) of "Robot of Sherwood" than anyone's accents.

While I previously posted that I think it possible that she's not "Missy" but instead, "Miss C." as in "Miss Clara", I've come up with another idea that I haven't read in the above comments.  So maybe she is one of the "Split - Timestream" Claras from "Name of the Doctor".  One who never encountered a Doctor and went Batty.  But what if this particular Clara did meet up with someone else - the Great Intelligence.  Maybe the Great Intelligence wasn't completely destroyed within the Doctor's Timestream.  (Afterall, neither Clara or the Doctor himself were destroyed in there.)

Maybe he/it (the Great Intelligence) found this one lone Clara and successfully melded with her.  So "Missy/Miss C" is part aged and batty (Timestream) Clara combined with the Great Intelligence.  Perhaps that combo is what made her batty.  So it would be a crazed Great Intelligence within the batty Clara who considers the Doctor her "boyfriend" and it's the crazed Great Intelligence within Clara who wants to keep the accent.  And it's the crazed Great Intelligence/Clara who wants to destroy the Doctor!

(As I posted elsewhere on this site,) we purposely were not shown what happened so that we have to wonder about it until the truth is revealed.  Probably in Episode 12.  I'm willing to bet that the Doctor ended up saying that he couldn't push the Half-faced man out.  The Half-faced man, however, probably said that he COULD push the Doctor out.  The two would have fought, with the Half-faced man trying his best to push the Doctor out, only to get tangled in his own mechanical feet (or something) and accidentally fell out all on his own.  (This is all quite a bit like the 6th Doctor and the corrupted Matrix making HIM look guilty!)

Doctor Who was never actually canceled in 1989.  The brass at the BBC would never come right out and say that because they didn't want a repeat of the controversy which happened after the 1985 "resting" during Colin Baker's tenure.  The same BBC brass simply said something akin to, "We're going to look into new ways of producing the series, perhaps partnering with other production companies.  We want to make Doctor Who faster, better, stronger."  Etc., etc.  (Again, what I just wrote isn't an actual quote, it's just "basically" what the BBC were saying at the time.  But, no, the BBC never actually officially canceled Doctor Who.)


I myself am holding out for a 12 and 1/2 year anniversary special for the return of the show.

I just hope that whoever is in charge at that time doesn't decide to celebrate by coming up with "The Anti-War Doctor" or "The God Doctor" (an off-shoot of the 4th Doctor after he puts the Key To Time together and gets all "possessed") or something like that.  Or a Doctor derived from The Watcher, between 4's regeneration into 5.  (You know, it "turns out" that the Watcher actually got up before becoming Davison, and went and had a bunch of his own adventures without telling anyone, and eventually came back and then fully regenerated into the 5th Doctor.  And here he is now, helping celebrate by appearing for the first time ever in the 12 and 1/2 year anniversary special.  That would be sort of irritating.)

@ProfWimsey @The MasterDoctor Hi, Prof.  McGann is a year and a half younger than Peter Capaldi.  Even if Capaldi did 4 years, McGann would be 58, and I don't think that's too old.  Going off "Night of", I don't think he shows his age.  Also, the dozens of regular viewers (for every fan) possibly wouldn't know McGann from any other new actor in the role.  Or perhaps they would have the familiar knowledge that he had been in the 96 movie and "Night", but it wouldn't cause them any concern, because a  great actor is a great actor.  And McGann is exactly that. 

 I just can't see McGann re-taking the role as being any different to the "regular viewers" than any other actor taking the role.  (Also, as much as I would love for Capaldi to do 8 years as the Doctor, I can't see an actor of his caliber wanting to go more than 4 years at the most.  I just hope he doesn't follow in Eccleston's path and limit himself to 1 !)  I will say though, that it would seem more likely that the show-runner at that time, and the BBC itself, will probably want to go back to a more "youthful" Doctor after Capaldi's run.  Still, I'll always have hope for McGann's return, one way or another.

Don't know why so many comments are going on about "what could have been" or how "different things would be now" if McGann had gotten a series after the 96 movie.  This isn't a DW episode.  There's no "timey-wimey" threat of Eccleston, Tennant and Smith's eras disappearing from the time vortex or of the Doctor suddenly becoming "definitely" half-human.


Let's look forward to "what could be". Peter Capaldi is just about to begin his tenure as the Doctor.  But eventually, after three or five or eight years (hopefully eight!) he'll decide to move on.  It will be time for a new Doctor.  But why not, instead, at that point, go back and find out what the 8th Doctor's era was?  

The BBC could, after Capaldi leaves, bring McGann back to the role of the Doctor and do several years of the 8th Doctor.  Paul McGann proved in those very few 7 minutes of "Night of" that he has the character down.  (If not all those years of audios!)  McGann is an actor of extraordinary talent.  He deserves a series as the 8th Doctor.  The 8th Doctor deserves a series.  WE, the fans of Doctor Who, deserve a series of the 8th Doctor!
