I didn't realise that the little girl was played by Aled Jones's daughter.

Oh yes, I think I read that. :)

The episode felt kind of like The Beast Below to me. It wasn't exactly my cup of tea, but neither was it coffee.

I thought it was okay. The plot was pretty thin, to be sure, the Doctor's pseudo-stalking of Clara and her parents through their lives was getting creepy, 'Grandfather', as one reviewer puts it, looks like a mummified version of Mr Hanky, and why did Merry psychically pin Clara to that cabinet like a little brat? But it was still an enjoyable story, with wonderful themes, an intriguing, if underdeveloped, monster, and pretty damn good effects.

However, I'm looking forward to the next episode, Cold War.

Hey, I've enjoyed what I've seen of this season. Bit of a step-up from last year.

My daughter is into Dr Who & recently watched the 1996 movie with Paul McGann & loved it. She's keen to catch up on the older shows which will be good fun for me to see them again. She put this picture of Matt Smith on the PC desktop which I think is a really good pic.

Three Doctors on Aussie TV (though they've misspelt Paul McGann's name as 'McCann' :? )...

Thought Doctor Who was a bit Star Warsie this week, though good.

I think we are going to see a reoccurring theme with the motorbikes :auto-biker:

An appeal to the makers of Doctor Who.

Please, please, please, please, please let David Warner's character from tonight's episode join the Doctor and Clara as a Companion. :pray:

I'd be up for that. :D

I really enjoyed that one. :) I enjoyed the general 'submarine movie' setting, Clara being suitably gutsy, I really liked the Captain and the professor, and enjoyed the HADS getting it wrong at the end. :lol:

I also liked the Alien-esque thing of hiding the 'naked Ice Warrior' from sight as much as possible. :)

Good stuff, Mark Gatiss! :D Probably my favourite TV episode of his. :)

I'm with you on that but for some reason I find Clara really irritating
