I've got Netflix and fancy watching some "older" episodes - might go back and watch Eccleston's stuff or some of Tennant's, which I've already seen. I didn't watch half of Matt Smith's Season 6 (when it all got too convoluted and River Song-heavy) or the last full season bar the two Davos episodes.


Davros :P

They're pretty much all 2 parters.

Not too shabby (the first Zygon one is a bit painful, but worth it fo the climax in part 2) - some off bits but most have good "moments".

Maybe skip Face the Raven. Clara's 4th, and 6th most effective, good bye. She has more "endings" than Return of the King.

Heaven Sent is worth watching - although it follows on from Face the Raven all you need to know is

Clara's dead - as a consequence of someone's plan to capture to the Doctor

That's not what I said though. It's worse than being ignored. You had to change my words to make em worth posting. So hurtful :(

I didn't think much of the last episode. It was ok and the idea could have been turned into a decent episode, but it just felt a bit meh.

Pretty standard episode. I think 12 and Bill are a good fit so far, Capaldi's Doctor suits the eccentric tutor role. I liked the emojibots, would be fun to see them pop up again sometime. Lol at the humans trying to shoot the microbots though :lol:

Liked it, and I think Bill is already a better companion for Capaldi's Doctor than Clara was...

Enjoying this series alot, nice and simple plot thread going through the series and it's not too complicated to watch.

I really enjoyed that one. I love Bill's interactions with the Doctor and the way they showed the racism at the time I thought was very good. Capaldi punching the guy in the face <3

Bill is actually already my favourite companion of Nu-Who.

Villain was rubbish but all the interactions between The Doctor and Bill were great.

I do like Bill. Her interactions are more 'real' more believable.

But, The storylines are still "win button", tired, seen it before.

John Simm is behind the door. Knock, Knock, Knock, Knock. Dr who really needs an arc rather than these monster of the week rehashes. Blink. The Master needs to start now and go on until Capaldi's end. Buffy and Angel managed to do arcs really well. Daredevil too. Arrow, Flash not so much. BBC need to take queues from those US shows.

Just finished watching up to the end of the Tennant episodes in netflix, they really were in another league from what has followed.
