@Thewhovianwhowaited We saw the body of the Half-Face Man. We saw part of the cop's burnt corpse. We saw the woman in the Dalek get killed by the thingies.

@Padaster Yep. Also, if she had burned to death or turned to dust, it would have been obvious to the other characters that it was something supernatural. Instead, no one will know that everyone could be in danger until it's too late and everyone is dying.

@ScottMadison It started as a fan-made title sequence on YouTube and the response was overwhelmingly positive; so much so that they decided to base the official title sequence on it.

@Ivegotkidneys is companionless! @Doctor When Whether or not the actual death was painless is impossible to tell. Either way, the complete helplessness is disturbing. Escape is impossible; death is inevitable.

@NameOfDoctorHere I think the "regular death" could work well. No one around the victim will know why they just suddenly died, which could add some dramatic irony as the characters try to figure out what's going on while more and more people are dying.

"... only this one is inexplicably riding through space (enjoy that one science fans)."

I know this comment wasn't meant to be taken seriously, but I still feel this needs to be said: since the episode is clearly meant to be more fantastical, I don't think anyone will have a problem with it. Kill the Moon gave bad scientific explanations in an episode that originally looked to be science fiction.

@Benvenfold I'm doing the same, except I'm still watching the Next Time trailers. This week I couldn't resist and looked at only the rating, but didn't read any details and didn't know anything about it before the Next Time trailer, so I'm almost as unspoiled as a casual fan :)

@Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! Weeping angels don't try to be scientifically accurate. "Quantum locked" is the only explanation we get. When they give us an actual scientific explanation ("unicellular"), I expect it to make sense.

@Clara Who is pushed beyond, fascinated No More Although there are some who will completely dismiss an episode as being "the worst" just because of one flaw, they are a minority. As much as I've discussed the flaws in the science, I still enjoyed most of the episode and gave it a 7/10. I'm sure that's not too far off from most of the other people complaining about the science.

@JimForbes @A Friend of the Ood saw the mummy! :O @OzGirl An alien having more advanced technology isn't hard to accept. Unfortunately, giant "unicellular" spiders just don't make sense no matter how advanced the technology is.

@The Administrator @A Friend of the Ood saw the mummy! :O @OzGirl  I'll accept that, somehow, it can lay an egg immediately after hatching. That doesn't defy the laws of physics and, as you said, it's an alien. That part doesn't bother me as much. But an animal that hatches from an egg is smaller than the egg it hatches from; therefore, it shouldn't be possible for it to lay an egg of the same size as the one it hatched from. That would be like trying to fit an airplane through the TARDIS doors: even there's enough space inside (this is assuming the alien is somehow bigger on the inside), it can't fit through such a small gap.

@troughton who? There's a difference between saying that an alien character has highly advanced technology and saying that giant spiders are unicellular.

1 week, 5 days ago on Doctor Who and The Hype Train

@OzGirl Doctor Who is set in our universe. They were on the moon. The "science" shouldn't contradict reality. There aren't unicellular organisms with teeth and eyes that can make webs; it's scientifically impossible. Animals don't lay eggs the size of the egg they hatched from immediately after hatching; it's scientifically impossible. While I agree that the story and characters are more important than getting every detail completely accurate, it still needs to be somewhat plausible to be good science fiction. Such obvious basic scientific errors distract from the story and make it harder to suspend disbelief.

@Pockydon I didn't expect "big epic tumblr moments" (what does that even mean?), it just didn't live up to the hype. DWTV gave it a 10/10 and I heard some very positive things before watching it. I expected something as good as Listen. Instead, it was a perfectly average episode with quite a few flaws. That's not to say it was terrible. I enjoyed most of it, especially the first half with the terrifying spiders and the claustrophobic atmosphere and flickering lights.

The end is where it all fell apart for me, with the Doctor's sudden "I actually knew what this was all along. Everyone's safe and always has been" moment being an incredibly disappointing and anticlimactic resolution, especially after so much was made about his reluctance to make a decision. It didn't help that this was followed by Clara being irrationally angry that he saved the world by letting the moon thing live, which she wanted anyway.


The science of the episode was also hugely flawed. How were the spiders unicellular when they were nearly the size of a human and had teeth, legs, etc? How does a newly hatched animal lay an egg the same size as the egg it hatched from immediately after hatching?


It was an entertaining episode with a creepy atmosphere, some great lines, and interesting concepts. I just don't feel that it deserved anywhere close to a 10/10 rating nor the massive hype it had for the last few days before airing; therefore, it did not meet my expectations.

@Warisfiller @Oodkind is nuking spiders. How has Capaldi been pushed to the side? Deep Breath had plenty of scenes with just him alone. The Doctor and Clara seem more like a team rather than the usual "superhero and his sidekick". If anything, it reminds me of the Fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane.

I was afraid to look at this review. Being 7 episodes into the season, I've been expecting the first bad episode to come at some point. I'm relieved that it's not this one, which has been hyped as being one of the darkest and most important episodes of this series.
