@Aztecs, Daleks and Cavemen @Clara Bosswald is the Chosen One. Oh well. I find it a bit messy, not unlike Journey's End. Great fanservice, not so great 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.

@Clara Who would make a good Doctor! Am I the only one who preferred the graffiti killers ?

@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 ?

@TardisBoy Holy mother of Rassilon's fez. Definitely going to use that one!
@Aztecs, Daleks and Cavemen How is the Missy arc ominous ? Seriously she's just been welcoming people to heaven so far. She's had like 5x2mins of screen time. It's actually very RTD-esque.

@Juggernaut265 Flatline by far. Mummy was shy and safe. Flatline was bold and original.
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.
You were an exceptional Doctor, Clara. Goodness had nothing to do with it. :(
When Missy appeared I thought she was about to welcome people who were converted in 2D. I was really surprised! The arc is finally moving forward! Great scene.
Samuel is so great ! I love his love for the show.

That sounds a lot more like my cup of tea :) Very original with a strong moral concept and character development. Beside, anything comparable to "The Girl Who Waited" is great stuff in my book.

@mistermikeywood @Clara Bosswald is the Doctor. @BenGu Its just a technobabble line at the end of the episode. For the most part its a mummy doing mummy things.

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.

@SonicTheHedgehogRules I'm not a fan of that gold nonsense. The Cybermen were at their best during the Troughton era, although I love Earthshock.
@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.

My least favorite this series; 6.5/10. Nothing awful but very meh overall.
1 week, 1 day ago on Mummy on the Orient Express Review
@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.
1 week, 2 days ago on Rate & Discuss Mummy on the Orient Express
@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.
More Clara ? Yes please ! The visuals look very good. The directionns absolutely amazing this series.

Queen + Doctor Who. Does life get better than this ? Thank God for the UK.
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.
1 week, 5 days ago on Mummy on the Orient Express Advance Review
@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.
1 week, 6 days ago on Kill the Moon: Clara or the Doctor?
@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
2 weeks ago on Kill The Moon Review
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.

@DoctorDude @Miss Bosswald saved the Moon. @MoserGray That's why he left Gallifrey and doesn't like the timelords. Because you don't leave the fate of two races in the hand of a teenager who is nothing special in your eyes.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Rate & Discuss Kill the Moon
@MoserGray @DoctorDude Uhh.. no. It's not about ego. I mean Clara has ego but that's just not it. He left her. He abandoned an astronaut, a school teacher and a teenager to solve an impossible dilemma, with two entire races at stake. He could have helped and he didn't. It's normal to feel betrayed
@hirotan69er @Americanwhovian maybe he liked it so much he stole one in every size, not knowing which size he would regenerate into.
@supermoff is on the Orient Express...in space! It's one of those very few instances where I can say that Belgium is cooler than the United States so I'm not missing this opportunity : We have BBC One for free and without any ads.

@TardisBoy Smart guy.
@ Notsosmartguy Will Kill the Moon @supermoff is on the Orient Express...in space! Jesus, your comments keep on being more and more depressing Notsossmartguy!
@PaddyB If it is, I'm going to turn off my brain and pretend I didn't read that. I liked the episode and I want it to stay that way. Also, Peter Harness deleted his twitter account.. :/
@Benvenfold Same for me. I was concerned about the "darkness" of the episode. I just hate it when people write dark stuff for no reason (I blame Christopher Nolan for this new trend) - but here it was justified, well written and everything. Loved it.
I've been thinking and my biggest problem with this episode is Peter's shirt (Good lord I hate spotty clothes! Nuke them!) Testament to the quality of the episode.
@Ottoman14 It's why the Doctor left Gallifrey in the first place. Because Time Lords watch but never intervene. They could avoid great suffering but they don't. And he's turning into them, he's finally getting old. He certainly didn't mean harm, but he made a mistake.
@Ivegotkidneys is companionless! Eleven to Clara "you don't leave your friends behind. I wish I was more like that". Although it fit Peter's doctor perfectly, it would have been very interesting for Matt.
