I enjoyed that. Is this the best season so far?

This.

Peter Capaldi is ultra scary whenever he plays evil. Definitely the highlight of the episode.

Not sure why it is but this season hasn't felt as compelling to me as previous Capaldi seasons.

Weird. I think it's much better.

Mostly because it's more about the Doctor, and not the Clara Show, occasionally featuring the bumbling doctor.

I enjoyed it because there were some funny jokes, Matt Smith is ace, and the new assistant is absolutely gorgeous.

God you are so sexist.

'Empress of Mars'. Pretty unmemorable standard 'Doctor Who', not offensively bad like that moon-is-in-egg atrocity, but not standout either. As a homage to old Who, it might do well with nostalgia glasses on but other than the Ice Warrior's novel technique for folding clothes, it's not one I think I'll return to, even if they did have Enfield muskets.

Well, there was one jaw-dropping brilliant moment:

The stare between Missy and the Doc in the Tardis right at the end was ominous and scary.

I agree. Brain candy. Suffered from a lack of Lucas, but monster costumes pleasingly crap.

I enjoyed this week's more than last week's. An enjoyably self-contained story, and I'm sure that watching it on a dark night would make the monster even scarier. I don't really like tentacles. The crows having a sulk was fun, and Nardole was brilliant as usual. Romans are cool and always a welcome addition to anything (see also bears; helicopters; muskets) but I liked how they used young actors to portray them as that felt more in line with the 'just like children' theme and more realistic anyway. Bill's genre-savvyiness was in full flow as she worked out the language translation gubbins, and the whole lip-sync thing was something I hadn't picked up on before.

Might have to rewatch the mini-episode at the end as preparation for the finale.

I thought that was really good too. This series is consistently knocking it out of the park. I hope they keep Nardole around, Lucas has impressed me, his delivery is masterful.

Missy has been great too.

Just caught up on the last two. This series has been a slow burner for me - and I came in half way through. But that was great. Especially the bit about kids, and the crows. Great!

Well, that wasrather good.

I don't think it was very child friendly, mind.

I find Missy VERY ATTRACTIVE

That would have been superb had they not given the plot twists away last week.
