"At the point Owen returned, he had unresolved issues and a questionable morality" Questionable morality is a very nice way to say he raped two people in the first episode of the show.


I don't think there will be much controversy though. There will definitely be a sci-fi twist to 'justify' it and as long as Missy doesn't turn out to be Jesus or Muhammad, I think it will be fine.

@The Finn I generally want more of Earth history. Norse mythology, Japan, China, Egypt, Native Americans, Iran (Persia),... they all have a wonderful history to explore. But I guess it would be difficult to do it properly with Peter's Doctor (white savior and all that...)

I had to go for Richard Curtis but Neil Gaiman, Peter Harness and Simon Nye deserved it equally.

Series finale can be tricky in Doctor Who. Writers want to make them huge, so huge that they cannot end without an incredibly unsatisfactory resolution. Parting of the Ways, The Pandorica Opens/Big Bang 2 and to a lesser extent, The Name of the Doctor are the only ones that I really loved from beginning to end. I hope this one can top at least TNOTD.

The more I think about it, the more I feel uncomfortable about the way Maebh's mental illness was handled.The whole "voices are talking, don't shut them up" / "Mental illness is magic" was very immature. You don't tell people in a wheelchair that their disability is a superpower. They can be superheroes, like anyone else, but not just through their disabilities, despite their disabilities (now that I come to think about it : Davros, Max in Voyage of the Damned, Lunmic... People with disabilities are not very well represented in this show...). It's an overused trope, didn't like that aspect at all.

The cyberselfies and ads seem like an interesting concept. You know how the cybermen were created after the first heart transplant, in fear of what technology could do to a species that would abuse it. Including our modern fears in technology and medias (lack of privacy, surveillance, manipulation of the masses,...) could be a very refreshing way to look at the cybermen. Missy and her 3W organization seem to use our own technology against us, which I find very fitting for these monsters.

@BollingerKnickers @Robertclose What he means, I think, is that Matt Smith didn't play the Doctor, he was the Doctor. He gave a speech with Benedict Cumberbatch when Moff received a special BAFTA (it's on youtube). It was Matt Smith but all I could see was Eleven, with his weird face, his hands and all his mannerisms. Only Tom Baker and Chris Eccleston gave me that impression. But Tennant is a very talented actor, no one would deny that I think.

@Beasts_a_Snarling is in some... Dark Water..... I can see the similarities between The Pandorica and The WORS but The Name of the Doctor and A Good Man Goes to War (I consider it a mid-series finale) were very different... Also, Moffat doesn't write many Alien Invasion of Earth stories, let alone set in modern day London. In fact, I don't think he ever wrote a proper invasion of Earth story. Empty Child/Impossible Astronaut were the closest thing. This feels very fresh from him.

@supermoff needs answers! NOW! @Beasts_a_Snarling is in some... Dark Water.....  I don't think "the kids are the target audience" is an explanation. I have this rule, if you can't enjoy something for children as an adult, you probably shouldn't let kids watch it anyway, unless you want them to become pudding brains. The best books/movies for kids are enjoyable for adults : The Lion King, Harry Potter, Mulan, Pocahontas, The Last Airbender ...

Maebh had both great and cringe worthy moments. Her first scene with the Doctor is very good, she delivers some lines very well "Why does everything have to go?" but then there are stuff like the hands thingy and "The thoughts!!! The Thoughts!!!" which are embarrassing to be honest... Although for the actress' defense, there is no way to deliver that line correctly... Even Peter sounded stupid at some point. ("We are going to call everyone on Earth and tell them to leave the trees alone")

The episode didn't do very well on IMDB. It ranked 4st worst episode just above Fear Her, Love and Monsters and the Lazarus Experiment. I mean I didn't love the episode but it wasn't that bad... was it ?

@Beasts_a_Snarling is in some... Dark Water..... 6.5/10 is a good score. 6/10 means average Doctor Who in my ranking. I thought it lacked a bit originality or concept... It was just underwhelming (wait 66 seconds aaaaaand... she closes her eyes). Not a fan of the characters... Didn't like the way Clara's relationship with the Doctor was handled. Classic Monster killing redshirts in space. It's fine and quite enjoyable but that's it.

Trying to concentrate on the episode : I really liked the character moments. Clara saying she did not want to be the last of her kind was the highlight. Capaldi had some great lines too, nice call back to Kill the Moon. The kids were good. I really liked the direction, it generally looked beautiful, the scenes with the little girl running in the forest were just gorgeous, the tiger... It did lack a bit of something for me. Maybe more monsters like the wolves, more action. It was still lovely and quite enjoyable.

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.
