I'd want him to return. I assume that Paradise offers him a chance at another go, but we obviously can't be sure until we've seen the finale, so until then, I'm withholding my judgement. All I'll say is that I thoroughly enjoyed his character on screen, and I wouldn't mind seeing more at all.

It looks as though he was pushed but I presume the plot twist will be... he wasn't. The clockwork man landed backwards, so fell facing upwards. The obvious presumption would be that if you were to throw yourself out of a high place, you would throw yourself forwards and therefore, in order to land backwards, the Doctor would have to have pushed him out.

I've seen it three times already now, and I have to say... it's in my top 3 Moffat stories in the entire run of the show; The Girl In The Fireplace; The Time Of Angels / Flesh & Stone; Deep Breath. It's incredible in every single way. Faultless in an enviable fashion. The writing is outstanding. The performances are masterful. The directing is better than any other (seen previously). The use of colour in the episode blends each scene together with lovely textures in each transition. The CGI is perfection! Clara is astounding as a character and Vastra beholds magnificence in her every word. This is one of my favourite stories in the entire show. Doctor Who at its best.

I'm so slow. I've only just realised the reason why The Doctor said he missed Amy! Her long legs!

Anyway, I hope we see Vastra & Jenny share another kiss later on. Their kiss was so sweet when they shared oxygen, but I'd also like them to be portrayed being more openly intimate with each other, as I really enjoyed seeing their relationship develop in this episode. It was lovely to see Vastra & Jenny's love for each other being approached in a mature manner, but I'd prefer less of the lesbian jokes, personally. Another story with a scene shared between the two would be appreciated; no explicit action; just a moment with genuine, heart-felt dialogue.

If these shots aren't in an episode, I will be so disappointed. Obviously, with different things written on them, but they're so beautiful, it would be a shame for them to be wasted on only just promotion.

Breathtaking... *Ahem*

It is (in my opinion) one of the best episodes written by Moffat in his entire era. The only other stories that come close are; The Eleventh Hour; Time of Angels / Flesh & Stone and The Impossible Astronaut / Day of The Moon. The directing and use of colour has to be mentioned because I've never been so impressed before - not even by Nick Hurran (and I adore his direction). The titles sequence reinvents the show, and it's one of the biggest improvements noticeable.

10/10

Let's hope Moffat continues to write at this level consistently.

You were deliberately picking out flaws & then went on to say how you hope part of it is like your work, making out that yours is better, which is self promotion(acting as if getting your name out is all that matters). Just be happy for the guy. He had an idea and created it, and it got noticed. The execution of that idea may not have been perfect, but he doesn't probably have a render farm or the time or experience to be as in depth or detailed as you. However, he's done an excellent job, and people like it so much that they've made it official with a few improvements.

I'm not doubting the quality of the CGI. I'm saying that their appearance on screen wasn't frequent enough in the story, and I assume that's due to budget.

I think they would've been done a lot better if the show had a bigger budget. The CGI spheres limited how much screen time they could've had. Moreover, with only 45 minutes, there was a lot to squeeze in. The child-like nature of them was perfect though. It made them evermore chilling. Children - speaking with innocent voices - committing acts of genocide... that's powerful.

The Toclafane are a villain that I feel must return one day, and in a darker era, I think this would be a prime time for them to make a come-back. In my opinion, they are the greatest creation on the show to date, and surpass both the Daleks, Cybermen and even The Weeping Angels and the Silence. As the Master said: "The human race. Greatest monsters of them all..."

Some may not like the Series 3 finale, but it's one of my favourites, as it may not have the greatest of resolutions in it, but (as a story) it possesses one of the most powerful plot twists I've ever seen in a show before, as it leaves you feeling despondent, empty and revolted by your own kind. It's the darkest story in the RTD era by far. If you listen to the words spoken by the characters, you realise how vile the world has become, and what the future humans did to their own original planet.

Considering Capaldi's more unforgiving incarnation, I'd like to see how his Doctor copes with the kind he attempts to protect so often. Tennant's Doctor's hearts broke. Would Capaldi's hearts remain in tact, or would they shatter too?

Watched it on YouTube (oops) and loved it. Slightly (I mean spectacularly) rubbish CGI TARDIS but it's so classic. It feels like a classic Doctor Who episode again. If the TARDIS is improved, it may be the best titles sequence of the Moffat era.

I'd say the Slitheen. In a seemingly darker era of Doctor Who, exploring the inner depths of a creature that lives inside the skin of a victim's corpse could be quite interesting. In Boom Town, Slitheen culture was told to be barbaric and repugnant. If the show really is dark... It could use that in a horror-themed plot to tell a haunting story that would make the farting aliens (who were once humorous) a chilling nemesis.

As long as you've acknowledged that you may have made an unintentional mistake and said something that could have caused offense, and you've apologised for it, I think everything should be fine :-)

I personally, cannot wait for Capaldi to be the Doctor, as I don't see his age as a disadvantage at all. If anything, I simply see it as a change that's been needed for a while. His older prescence in the TARDIS will provide a different atmosphere, which will refresh the show, and its dynamic, so any criticism to do with his age (for me) is a little silly, in my opinion.

In actual fact, I found myself agreeing with pretty much the entire post, as I thought it was a well-crafted, intelligent way of translating an opinion in to a comment. What ruined it for me was the hashtag that followed, as it almost ruined the entire post, for it went from a respectful, thoughtful presentation of ideas to suddenly, a comment which displayed a lack of maturity in what was otherwise a very mature addition to the comments section of ideas or thoughts.

I'm sorry that you obviously feel my retort was not needed (I assume that's the kind of message you were trying to convey with your reply) but I feel people have to speak out and pick someone up when they say something like that, for it could easily cause offense to other users when we try to maintain a pleasant, friendly atmosphere as much as we can.

If it's a prequel to an episode, I shan't be dishonest, as I'd rather it aired on television before the episode. The prequel to Asylum of The Daleks (for instance) was beautifully shot, and brilliantly atmospheric. If they ever do prequels again, I just think it would be easier having longer episodes so they can be included into the full story instead of just being released online.

It came across as belittling on my behalf. People interpret written words differently. That's how I interpreted them. From my perspective, I saw it as Peter making a suggestion and Moffat almost laughing it off - which I think is a bit harsh. You interpreted it differently. I did not say they'd fight. I said there would probably be trouble in the future. It's not like Moffat hasn't had a big argument before. We all know what happened to Caroline Skinner. Some say it's gossip but a lot say it's true. I suspect you'll call that gossip too.

It's frustrating. Capaldi is showing such enthusiasm and passion for the show, and he's so inventive, and creative, and Moffat seems to be pooping his party. What Moffat has to remember is the fact that Peter is already established, and probably won't take things lying down; if he wants to stay as the Doctor, he'll probably want to enjoy himself and he'll probably want to have some of his wishes for the show granted, and if Moffat is too limiting (that's what he seems to be) then I foresee an oncoming calamity.

It really looks like Capaldi is pushing Moffat out of his comfort zone. It's annoying because I love Capaldi's suggestions and Moffat's just shooting them down, as if to make them seem absurd. Let's hope Peter goes Malcolm Tucker every once in a while, so his brilliant ideas actually make it on to the show. Peter is a talented writer and director. He knows if it will work or not.
