Five Rounds Rapid

We thought of doing two entries for this episode in honour of Osgood, but in the end, we decided against that plan. Much like certain characters in this episode. But what did the viewers think? Some are calling it the best episode of the season. Some are not. Some have called it so and then shifted their opinions. That seems fairly appropriate given the subject matter of the episode.

Which one of the above paragraphs was written by a human and which by a Zygon? I refuse to answer that question. In the meantime, feel free to enter your comments in the section below. Both of you.

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the scene with the boxes/Doctor’s speech was one of the best written scenes that I’ve seen in a long time.  It was right up there with Tennant’s “Reward” speech in the End Of Time and various scenes from “The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang” & “A Good Man Goes To War”.  Just my humble opinion.

Best written? ah tbh i found it a little much, although i still loved the episode itself, However I love doctor who because it has that cheesy/cringe/corny element which is just soo bold, and they just dont care which is great i think, this episode had all of this smile
