@DWTV "decent at best" is not critiqued, it's just unfair. Amelia, Cal, Rupert... were a lot more than decent. It's not just Angie and her brother.

 Now child actors can be something of a gamble and the performances range from ‘decent’ at best, and ‘passable’ at worst. Don't mean to be rude but can we please stop this nonsense ?

@TheNightmareChild just got fitted for a loincloth @Clara Bosswald is the Chosen One. @Aztecs, Daleks and Cavemen It turns out to be a great example XD But it's not necessary a bad thing. Everyone loves Fanservice (I think?). Interraction between the Doctors/Ten's companions are great fun to watch. I just wouldn't call them classics. The Three Doctors had less fan service (1 doctor + 1 doctor cameo + 1 new TARDIS. That's all) and it was a better story IMO.

It had the strengths of both eras of NuWho. The small scale and the supporting characters felt a lot like series 1 while the monsters were very Moffat-y. 9.5/10 after rewatch.

@Asparagoose is scared of the scary tiger. @Clara Bosswald is the first of many female Doctors I'm trying very hard to understand what everyone loved about it. It just feels empty. An overused monster killing redshirts trapped somewhere in space. Its the most average story ever created. It doesn't have much to hate but it doesn't have anything to love IMO. And the deaths were so underwhelming... Was it really necessary to make me wait 66 seconds for that ? 3 or 4 times in the episode ?

Comparing the ending to The Power of Three is unfair. It's not perfect but it's not lazy. The 'true' ending is when Clara uses the monsters' powers against them. It's actually comparable to Blink or Day of the Moon.

It definitely lacked something for me. I don't find anything to hate but I don't find much to love either. It reminds me of Tooth and Claws in many ways. By no means a bad script but I cant say I enjoy watching that episode. Its just so safe ; classic monster, couple redshirts, bit of time, bit of space, Doctor saves the day with his incredible brain : yaaawn. I much prefer episodes like Time Heist or Kill the Moon which are more divisive but try something new and don't rely on 50-year-old Doctor Who tropes to tell a story.

@Oodkind, now in 2D! @Polyphase That episode has a lot of good but also a lot of crap... And I'm not just talking as a fan of the Classic Series. I agree that their humanity was perfectly portrayed, specially the ending when they see what happened to them and they basically commit suicide. But the story has flaws ; annoying supporting characters (except Mickey's relationship with his grandmother), pathetic Davros-wannabe, very slow and very noisy cybermen, ridiculous catchphrase, slow pacing... Basically it has a lot of good ideas but McCray's writing wasn't at its best. He was very young and improved greatly for The Girl Who Waited.

@BenGu @Clara Bosswald is the Doctor. It's not about what I didn't like but what I liked. It had nothing special for me, nothing to hate but nothing to love either. Mummies are like ghosts, witches and werewolves; Either you find a new angle like Harry Potter or Being Human, either it's just boring and has been done thousands of time. I liked those dead cooks in space, the mummy going through the Doctor and the very last scene between Clara and the Doctor. And Clara's dress. For the rest... tiny bit bored. The deaths caused by the Mummy were particularly underwhelming.

@Beasts_a_Snarling I find this one quite difficult to hate. Its like quintessential Doctor Who. A bit of space, a bit of time travel, a classic monster who kills redshirts, companion looking beautiful, Doctor being smart... I see what you mean though. Its not my favorite kind of episode as I feel it lacks creativity but you know... watchable and quite enjoyable.

@Beasts_a_Snarling I'd call it average too. Disagree with "series 7 trying to be series 4" though. It felt a lot like Hide. Good episode with a classic monster (Ghost/Mummy). No huge flaws but not impressive either.

@NightRises  It had to be in space. You need scientists capable of analyzing aliens, you need an elaborated lab for them to work... It wouldn't work if it was set around 1930. And the more space the better in my opinion. That shot when we see dead people in space and they turned blue was one of the best, I think. Much better than the deaths caused by the mummy.

I'm not as impressed as most people. I guess I just like disagreeing with the majority XD. It was good but far from impressive. It's entertaining and I wouldn't mind watching it again but it's not without flaws. The supporting characters had nothing special. After characters like the Paternoster Gang, Robin, Rupert, Orson, Psi, Saibra, Danny,.. this ones just seemed blank, in particular the blond lady. The deaths were a bit anti-climatic too. You make me wait for 66 seconds, you should give me something more than closing eyes. The shot when the mummy goes through The Doctor was great though! But how did Clara and her sidekick manage to get out ? The resolution wasn't great either, a lot of babbling from the Doctor, 30 seconds, goodbye. Not very happy with the way Clara's argument with the Doctor was fixed. I hope Im not sounding too harsh because it was really enjoyable, the last scene in particular put a big smile on my face but I was a bit surprised by the amount of 10/10 I see in the comments. 7 or 8 for me.

I was worried at "It’s something of a mix of “Voyage of the Damned” and “The Unicorn and the Wasp”", I got reassured at "However unlike the aforementioned episodes, the story takes itself a lot more seriously." A bit disappointed about Foxes though. I hoped she would be more crucial to the story.

@Polyphase Although it's the same logic, from Clara's point of view it's very different. Amy was safe, she sat down at a table and talked. It was important talk but in safe conditions. He didn't give her an ultimatum. He gave her enormous responsibilities but he didn't ask her to choose between humans and Silurians. He didn't abandoned her. He showed her the way to save both races; he didn't leave saying "here's an astronaut and a twelve-year-old girl. Do something clever, have fun!". Eleven was humble (in that episode), Twelve was patronizing.

@TheIdleIdol That's the thing. Everybody knows the moon is not an egg. It's obvious, it's not trying to be clever. Journey's End was and didn't make sense within the rules that were established in the show, not just scientific theories. But I suppose everybody is bugged by different things

All those science criticisms are unfair. Yes, it was silly but the script knows it. Lots of jokes about eggs and chicken... I have a lot more problems with Journeys End which does pretend to understand real science (parallel universes) and fails quite miserably. Kill the Moon is silly in places but it doesn't try to be smart - it's not science fiction, it's science fantasy.

@TheNightmareChild will ascertain its true nature Culture is a funny thing. Brits seem a lot more open-minded when it comes to swearing and sex and stuff like that but their acceptance of violence/scares is pretty low. The mummy still looks good though, not scary or anything but good.
