Okay, I wasn't expecting a whole lot from this episode. Halfway through I found myself thinking that this would just be left in my head as a paint by the numbers filler, but the second half turned me around. I was really impressed by how much I enjoyed it, there was a flavor of classic 'Who' in this episode that I don't get enough of in this show. Bravo.

This episode was terrific. A strong character piece w great performances. It gives you just a little peek of who the Doctor is or was without ruining any of the mystery.

This would be cool. It would also help stop people complaining about Clara being so "devil-may-care" about stuff.

Man, people do NOT like "Rings." Maybe I'm missing something, but it seemed like a fairly average episode at worst. Matt was given some terrific dialogue to play with (and I'm not just talking about his speech at the end).

None of these are particular surprising.
However, I do have a soft spot for WoRS -- Emperor Churchill, live Chess, Head Dorium, and Mark Gatiss as a treacherous viking who gets eaten by skulls? There are a lot of ideas here that are hard not to love. If you broke them down into separate episodes, they could be pretty fun. The actual marriage, on the other hand, was disappointing to me.

This looks fun. I hope they go with a swashbuckling tone this episode.

I agree with Smith. I do think I look on Season 6 a little too harshly, but that was because Season 5 was practically a perfect season with a consistent tone and a simply fairytale-esque story at its heart, one where the Doctor helps a frightened, young girl.
5 months, 2 weeks ago on Smith: The best storytelling was in Series 5
Eh. I can understand both sides. I personally found it enjoyable and it made me enjoy the Daleks again. Not Moffat's best, but definitely not his worst. I do agree about Special Weapons Dalek. Such a waste of potential.

I don't really want a dark end and another Time Lord Victorious (even
though it was dropped suddenly next episode). I want Capaldi to be more
like the elderly folks I worked with at the Pioneer Home -- crabby and
disarming at first, but as you get to know them they become more
delightful and you see how caring they really are.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on How Could Capaldi’s Doctor Develop?
Name of the Doctor WAS terrific, exciting, and inventive. However, the
Big Bang was all that AND playful. No big bad, just the threat of time
ending -- the finale happened last episode, so now it's time to have all
the characters put the pieces back together. And it's one of the rare
happy ending episodes. It was oh, so nice.

Well Moffat, you surprisingly impressed me by tying up things that I didn't expect you would in "Time," so I'm intrigued..

@Polyphase @Bert_MacklinThat's fair, that was a joke that fell flat. The playfulness that was present in that episode was quite enjoyable though imo.
You kind of got me thinking, does the BBC still have a copy of Stephen Fry's script? Why not have him tweak it and (finally) shoot it?

I'm ecstatic that Gareth Roberts is coming back. I'm excited to see what kind of humor he can get of Capaldi's (seemingly) cranky Doctor.
Personally, I'd like Human Nature to win. That was one hell of a two-parter. However I will be voting for my guilty pleasure -- Let's Kill Hitler, the episode with some Grant Morrison zaniness and my favorite Moffat dialogue. *runs from angry fans*

I like this. That would definitely be nice for the actors who play the Doctor as it would allow them a more relaxed schedule. Maybe it could be like Brian Clevinger's excellent Atomic Robo comics, where a villain causes trouble for our heroes in multiple timelines.

As long as the winner isn't 'The Curse of the Black Spot' I'm fine. No offense to Mr. Thompson, I'm sure there were budget issues, but I'm surprised team Moffat could screw up the concept of "Doctor Who meets Pirates."
I'll be surprised if School Reunion doesn't win, although ATCM is getting a lot of love. I don't think I've watched the full episode yet.

Aw yiss..the series that made me love this show. Those were some good times. A little silly and less cosmic Kirby-ness than I had hoped when I saw the previews, but when you destroy the world in the second episode, you know you've found something special.

Hmm. Well, if you can bring the sense of fun you gave us with 'Crimson Horror' and your recent Sherlock episodes, I'm for it, Mister Gatiss. As for Jane Austen... I don't know. Could be fun, but I'd rather he'd write a more Lovecraft-ian tale.

I voted for Impossible Astronaut, what I considered to be the creative high-point of the Moffat-Smith-Pond era. Just coming off a nearly flawless season and awesome Christmas special to one of the more mind-blowing episodes I had seen in a while. I wish the rest of S06 was that good.
