Pretty forgettable episode for me. Not one I'm eager to rewatch.

The second episode was ace. The girl's wardrobe is bloody crap, tbough. I loved the robots. Robot ribot robot.

The London one was pretty good, apart frim the drenchi g at the end.

Way better so far than with Clara.

It reminds me, ever so slightly, of Ace. I need to watch more of her adventures with the Seventh Doc as the ones I've seen have been very enjoyable (and I think I ever so distantly remember watching some when I was young).

That was really, really good. David Suchet was fantastic.

It's the Master in the vault, right? But is it Missy or Simm's Master?

Great fun. Love a haunted house story, and the casting was superb. The bugs were wonderfully yucky.

Also available with "3D" binaural audio: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p0 ... nock-knock

Haven't listened to that yet, but can imagine int works well; it sounded grand in 5.1 - the knocking was coming from all over the place.

Haunted House was great.

Spacesuits was meh.

Would have been better if it hadn't been a very similar plot to the episode earlier in the series. But it just felt like a total retread of the last time they went into space.

I found spacesuits to be very meh.

In particular, the telegraphing of evil sinister mega corporation from the moment that they arrived, and yet the Doctor only working out that the issue was being deliberately caused by the evil sinister mega corporation right at the end was bullshit

The vault is the laziest story arc in the history of story arcs. 30 seconds at the beginning and end of each episode to say that something big is coming, and nothing about it in the episode itself.

I'm quite bored of zombies now, so was relieved when they weren't technically undead but just the remains of the suits' inhabitants. The story was ok, but nothing too great, but I think 13 year old me would have responded more to the deft political points than my current cynical self. I would probably think more of the episode had not the smiley robot killers used the same magic haddock plot so recently. As is customary, I cheered when the sonic screwdriver was destroyed. Also..

Hope the Doc's blindness becomes a thing for the whole series. That could add a whole level of intrigue.


I'm annoyed with myself for not leaving the room when the credits came on with no 'next time' trailer as that normally means there's huge spoilers to follow, so I've ruined the next bit for myself by watching it. Careless.

Yeah, that one wasn't so good. Enjoyed Matt Lucas and Dr Who bitching at each other, but otherwise, quite meh. The ending was quite comic book-y with the reveal, so that was probably a plus point.

The plot was okay, but it did have some of the best lines in the series thus far.

So we haven't watched this series, but we turned on the last five minutes as we were watching whatever came on afterwards. Not knowing any of the plot or things that had happened I obviously am not in a position to comment, but the ending dialogue was just... awful.

It was like watching a child's stage play.

- "Look at me!"
- "No, you don't understand, I can't look at anything. I'm still BLIND!"
<Dramatically takes of sunglasses and stares at audience>
<Imagined audience gasp>

Yeah, I love it when Capaldi decides to start taking bites out of the scenery. Which is pleasingly often.

This! Probably true for all the Doctors. Even if the story's crap the lead generally gets some good lines. I've not yet reached the point I did with Sharpe where anytime Sean Bean wasn't on screen I kind of tuned out.

I thought that, on the whole, that was a cracking episode.

I can very easily understand why other people would hate it though.

Does set up the rest of the series well though.

I had some issues when it got into the explanation but overall pretty good.

Very much this. A great mystery, very many standout moments:

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
- Laughed out loud when the Pope interrupted Bill's date.
- The party at Cern was disturbingly bleak.
- Good to hear Descartes' evil demon referenced.
- Missy was excellent, as always. And the look of fear on the master of ceremonies when he asked for Doctor's kill count.
- Also, David Archer was the voice of the monks.

I'm holding judgement on this week's episode until I've seen the next part. Some bits I liked (especially the interplay between the scientists), other bits I wasn't so sure about, but then, I've never been much of a UNIT fanboy.

I really enjoyed it.

Loving this series. Capaldi is ace, and Matt Lucas is the best he's ever been.

Very much agree. It feels as fresh as the Ecclestone years and as confident as the Tennant/Tate era.
