Re: Doctor Who : Season 8

Best bit of the episode was the way Missy/master said "I'm in charge"

Re: Doctor Who : Season 8

The ending was pretty anti-climatic to be honest. As soon as it was clear Earth was safe it was a bit of a 'meh' moment. Up until then it was one of the best episodes of the series not that it had much competition. Some poor casting choices (the majority of supporting characters just seemed like young middle-class university/media types) and at times the acting was embarrassingly bad but it did have its moments.

One of the weaker seasons of the new Doctor Who but I'm looking forward to the Christmas episodes and whatever comes next.

Re: Doctor Who : Season 8

I throughly enjoyed it.

Loved the new Cybermen voices and Missy has been by far the best Master of recent years, hope she will be back.

Lovely final send off for the Brig also. Shame so many characters got bumped off.

Re: Doctor Who : Season 8

I'm sure that Missy will be back.

Maybe she teleported rather than was disintegrated. Or, if she did die, she would presumably have been sent to the Nethersphere and so could escape from there.


One thing though...

Shouldn't Clara be pregnant, given that her and The Doctor met a descendant of her and Danny earlier in the series?

Re: Doctor Who : Season 8

Unless the future is changed as of course nothing is set in stone

Rewatching some episodes from the last few seasons, I am now even more sure that this season has been fantastic.

Can't wait till Christmas.

Re: Doctor Who : Season 8

I think Missy did Teleport as she went blue where as everyone else went in a puff of red.

Re: Doctor Who : Season 8

She wasn't killed by her own weapon, though. Pink killed her so that Clara wouldn't have to.

Actually Pink didn't kill / shoot her

Spoiler: 
It was the Brigadier back as a cyberman after rescuing his daughter that shot her

Something tells me that the Master wouldn't engineer a Cyberman army, and then hand it over to the Doctor, without first ensuring that (s)he had some defence against their weapons...

Like if they tried to shoot her she teleports to her TARDIS.....

Indeed, the point was it wasn't Pink who shot her.

I started watching Dr who late but I've seen the master return from being a withered husk, a slug, a fob watch and Ming the merciless' ring so nothing would surprise me

Re: Doctor Who : Season 8

Finally got a round to watching this.

I thought it was very good. Michelle Gomez was excellent as Missy.

A very strong, possibly the strongest, first season as a Doctor. Can't wait for the next season, just hope the writers are as good as Capaldi.

Re: Doctor Who : Season 8

What an anti-climax

Good episode but it was trying too hard to be clever for its own good. And we were told it would be sad? The only bit I thought was sad was when that lady realised she was in a wheelchair.
