Dr Who Season 8 The Caretaker

Summary

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? 

Danny

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!  

Clara

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?  

Doctor

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

Moffat

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.   

Courtney

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.
