It's a Gareth Roberts episode. Delivered exactly what was expected (plus a bit more). I love it.

I love Gareth Roberts, but I think Closing Time was his weakest story. It had its moments, sure, but it was overall rather underwhelming.

Curse was average and Journey is unwatchable. Time Heist was actually rather good.

@Master Michael Moon The figure on the bed could have been a child. There's an explanation for it. There's no such chance that the Midnight monster doesn't exist.

I have a soft spot for Gareth Roberts (particularly after that brilliant Shada novelization), so I'm hoping for the best.

The Time Lock has been broken loads of times. Dalek Caan, the Time Lords, Ten jumping a time track (in Prisoner of the Daleks), and now Clara...

I confess, I did read the script, and I think your assessment is spot on. It's good fun, but definitely nothing special.

@MerieliaZ I found Listen more frightening than Blink (though neither scared me much).

Blink is more perfect from a technical standpoint, but I prefer the more experimental nature of Listen. Hard to go wrong with either, though.

I keep flipping back and fourth. Both possibilities are endlessly intriguing, and both give the episode more weight in different ways.

Question: if there really is a creature that can hide perfectly, why would it need to go under a blanket or a bed?

Thompson, please redeem yourself. I know you can write well.

The greatest strength of the episode was that it left whether or not there really is a monster up to our imaginations. Wonderful move there.

Also, from what we now can surmise about Clara's future, it seems unlikely she'll be getting killed off. And I am very, very happy with that.

That was a brilliant little study of fear. Definitely a classic, not just for Doctor Who but for the science fiction and horror genera in general.

It's funny, normally I'd find the idea of never being alone more reassuring than frightening, but here they seem to be making it properly creepy.

My ranking of Gatiss episodes would be:


1. The Crimson Horror (9/10)

2. Robot of Sherwood (7/10)

3. The Unquiet Dead (7/10)

4. Victory of the Daleks (6/10)

5. Cold War (4/10)

6. Night Terrors (3/10)

7. The Idiot's Lantern (3/10)


Though if I could include An Adventure in Space and Time, that would be at the very top (10/10).

@awkward91 Are you suggesting Into the Dalek failed on all counts? I'm really gonna have to disagree there.

I'd like to see Journey traveling alongside Clara, to be honest. Their characters were great together.

"What’s that in the mirror or the corner of your eye?

What’s that footstep following, never passing by?

Perhaps they’re all just waiting, perhaps when we’re all dead

Out they’ll come a-slithering, from underneath the bed."

Ooh, now that is properly creepy.

I love Horrowitz, and I'd love to see him write an episode. If he writes a few and they turn out well, maybe then he could be a contender for showrunner. But as it stands now, having never even participated in the show... no, I don't think so.

Loved it even more than last week. and I'm already falling hopelessly in love with Danny Pink. I was hoping it would be a bit scarier, but it far exceeded my lofty expectations in every other way. Series 8 really is shaping up to be brilliant! 9/10

1. Listen. It sounds ambitious and original, and maybe even a bit scary.

2. Deep Breath. Another feature-length episode by Moffat, featuring a new Doctor and the Paternoster Gang? Count me in!

3. Into the Dalek. It sounds gritty and intense, and better yet, it's by two fantastic writers.

4. The Caretaker. I've generally been pleased with Gareth Roberts, so it should be good with me.

5. Robots of Sherwood. Gatiss is just a little too inconsistent for my tastes.

6. Time Heist. It sounds interesting, but Thompson doesn't have a great track record.
