Coz she's keeping an eye out for him since the time of the Vikings, and will likely be able to work out who he is, especially if he's travelling with Clara!

If River Song can do it then it should be a breeze for Ashilda.

Also.. by the end she's 4 billion years old. How is she not fucking batshit? And has managed to avoid getting disintegrated. Seriously. She's annoying enough for someone to wax her big style.

Also, subjectively, the Doctor was in the confession thingy for a few days max. It felt like he was being dishonest by going 'I was in there for 4 billion years!' It's not like he experienced the whole thing. What he did experience was plenty bad enougH for him to be PISSED.

I agree about the 4 days thing. But maybe realisation of what he had done before was perhaps enough...

Because she only had a normal-sized brain. She had to read her diary to remember her old memories.

Anyway, Series 9 > Series 8. Capaldi has really grown into the character and made it his own now, plus the 2 and 3-parters have made it feel a lot less rushed. I think on balance he's my favourite Doctor now, pipping Ecclestone by a whisker. So many good speeches.

I enjoyed the Xmas special, although...

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
River would have recognised The Doctor long before she did. I know they tried to show she thought he was still at the limit of 12 'lives', but it was a bit silly that she would be so rigid in her thinking when faced with the obvious.

Still, that aside it was lots of fun. Capaldi's comic acting really got to come to the fore.

Enjoyed Capaldi doing the 'Bigger on the inside' thing. That was quite fun.

I've stopped watching Who since the new Doctor (I like Cipaldi, but I was just sick of the show generally), but decided to dip into the Christmas Special.

It wasn't very Christmas and wasn't very special.

The Christmas specials should be the most accessible episodes, maybe with a couple of nods and winks for the die hard fans, but it should be targetted at a general audience, perhaps including folk who have never watched Doctor Who before.

That was what I was after, and it was just a normal episode of Doctor Who I guess.

Why can't they do another one like the utterly fantastic Christmas Carol one with Michael Gambon?

At least it wasn't as bad as the atrocity of The Time of the Doctor.

I never venture into this thread as you're all too nerdy about Dr Who for me to understand what you're talking about, but two things about this series:

1) The guitar needs to stop
2) Game Of Thrones is an awful actor.

I just got round to watching the first episode of 'Class', the new series in the Doctor Who universe (and featuring Capaldi for one episode to kick it off).

Anyway, it's really good. Like a really awesome episode of Doctor Who, but probably better.

I've only seen the one episode, but four are currently available. Helps that it was written by one of the world's greatest living authors, Patrick Ness.

Definitely worth a watch. Like a more Whedon-esque Who, but also very British.

I also don't get your love for Patrick Ness.

I think he's a great writer, and also a lovely bloke. "The Knife of Never Letting Go" is one of my favourite books ever; very imaginative, well written, believable characters, a talking dog, what's not to like?

"A Monster Calls" is also one of my favourites of all time, though that might be more to do with how personally I relate to the protagonist.

I enjoyed the Christmas episode. Appropriately cheesy enough for Christmas, and some great lines. Was impressed by Matt Lucas too.

It was ok I suppose. Some funny lines but unremarkable. Still it's vastly better than some previous specials that I turned off part way through.
