Dr Who Season 8 Episode 9 Flatline

Plot Summary

In short people disappear because 2 alien from another dimension are learning about humans and bring 3D! This episode is not one for the younger kids! Very creepy and scary! Love the monster design and the supporting cast is great!  This episode is dark as it has a group of community service men as the supporting roles. The lighter stuff happens in the Tardis and to it as it shrinks down with the Doctor in it full size also love it's new defence mode. 


Clara takes the lead as she has to be the Doctor for a day. Clara bossy and asks the right questions which rightly worries the Doctor! 


Peter performance in this one us hus best yet and very funny with a dark twist! 


Excellent supporting role as Clara's companion. But could the show be saying the Doctor just uses his companion as tools and not as people who he is showing the universe to? 
Danny was sweet and needy but supportive! 


I give this episode 4/5 and a high scare rating!

Dr Who Season 8 Mummy on the Orient Express

Plot Summary 
A mystery on a train with the foretold! When passagers start dieing can the Doctor help!  Love the Mummy monster! At last an episode which makes the Doctor the main character. 
 Is it Clara's last trip? We can only hope! 

Brilliant performance!   
Conflicted and angry with all the death. Clara really needs to wake up and understand that the Doctor constant companion is death! 
Danny has a nice comforting cameo which is well played and sensible.  

Over all a great mystery, great support cast and a great monster, shame about Clara!
 Love the period details. 
Ratings 5/5

Dr Who Season 8 Kill the Moon


Dr Who does an abortion metaphor as the moon is an egg and the creature within the moon has started to hatch! The moon has spider antibodies which are killing the crew of a save earth space mission. The space mission from the future has nuclear bombs on it which have to be activated by turning the bombs on first and then using a detonater to cause the bombs to blow up. The Doctor takes Courtney as a way of apologising to her and Clara. The future space crew has an middle aged women and 2 older men. One man gets sent back to turn the bombs on and he gets eaten by the spiders so the bombs will not work anyway. The other man dies exploring a dark old space craft that was part of research mission. 

Doctor Is excellent in this as he allows the 3 women an 9 ls women,  a teenager and a women in her twenty to make the choice by themselves as he knows it is not his choice to make.

Courtney was great in this uploading the Doctor pictures to Tumbler. Love it! 

Clara for a women how has saved the doctor she was really annoying in this as he leave them to choose and she gets offended!  Does not she know he would have come back for them? 

I really enjoyed this episode great story, tension and dark edge which makes it an episode not for younger viewers.  
Rating 5/5 

Dr Who Season 8 The Caretaker


In short a robot solider has landed and its trying to follow it's basic programming of killing humans near Susan Foreman's old school!

Bad luck for Clara and Danny who work there. The Doctor goes undercover as the Caretaker to save the day! But does he? 


Great development of his character but still him and Clara's relationship is awakard! Danny and the Doctor's relationship is one of rivalry and respect which is odd. Loved his jump to the rescue!  


Will she leave the Doctor for Danny? Won't she argument.  Does she like being put in danger by him? Is Clara stupid because she was put in danger by the Doctor in the second half of season 7 and she did not ask this question. So why is she now minding all of a sudden?  


Great work from Peter Capolid here, love his relationship with Courtney Woods. 


What is with the 11th Doctor Grief that the show is going though.  Yes, respect 11 but Matt Smith chose to leave!

 Why can't Moffat leave it alone and move on now. YES bow ties were cool, (they still are) but we have a new Doctor now! Who does not need 11th rubbed in his face all the time. But by doing this we do explore Clara feelings for both 11th and Danny. The inclusion of the  11TH Doctor look a like teacher with the curly hair is a odd but seems out of place just a Peter is getting into his stride.   


Great Character, we need more pep in Doctor Who not more awfully awkward dates and grumpy conflicted conversations. Where is the fun ? 

Villian was boring and very Sarah Jane Adventures like but the story is in a school.


For story 3/4

 For character development 4/4
