Great Episode very creative writing and Smith on great form. You can see how he has been influenced by Troughton and was that his actual bow tie he put on?

You’d be forgiven for mistaking it for an episode of Black Mirror aimed at children. I personally love the black humour and dark moments but I think they have made it exciting and fast paced enough so cater for both those who just want an hours entertainment and those fans who want more.

Love the Clara mystery, reminds me of my LOST watching days and trying to work everything out.

Good Stuff.

I think Craig Hinton may be turning over in his grave, since he wrote ‘Millennial Rites’ in which the Doctor and his companion who he knows but hasn’t yet met combat an enemy which has taken over a computer company based in a skyscraper in East London.  However, this is clearly an original story and well done too.

Both stories also feature heavy references to St John the Baptist…

Quite enjoyed it but haven’t had a chance to watch it again yet, and I want to do that before giving a full assessment.  However, a couple of things that did jump out at me - why is it that anytime there is an alien intelligence behind a modern-day company in a real office, doing nefarious things, is the person in charge always an interchangeable cliché businesswoman (this ep, Doomsday, Partners in Crime)? 

And oh Mr Moffat you missed a golden opportunity, the one line I was waiting for - Clara was supposed to say “It’s smaller on the outside” when she came into the TARDIS, just like she did in The Snowmen…continuity!!!

This was a fun episode and thank God he changed his outfit because that tweed jacket was driving me crazy. My expectations going into this episode we’re so low after the dismal 2012 Christmas episode… that I was pleasantly surprised when the Spoonheads weren’t actually some silly childish things.  They were actually very creepy and I was spooked out by the turning of their heads.  7/10
