Yeah, I preferred Dark Water to Death In Heaven ... case of the build-up being more impressive than the pay-off for me.

Only good thing about the finale was the flying cybermen and the aeroplane...it was a damp squib on almost every other facet.

And Clara....fuck you, turned out to be a little bitch...bye bye.

Just me who wondered if the blown-out-of-the-plane parachuteless Doctor free-falling towards and then 'catching' the Tardis was intended as a homage to Moonraker's pre-credits sequence?

Actually come to think of it, maybe it was a combo of homages to MR's and Goldeneye's.

It is possible, no doubt there is considerable overlap in the fandom of the respective franchises to mine. Sadly for me its one of those 'just because you can doesn't mean you should' sequences. Too fanboi for my liking...and I am a fanboi.

As an addition did anyone else feel Clara's bloodlust at the end a complete slap in the face to pretty much everything that had gone before?

Creepy, funny, hitting you with an absolute jaw-dropping revelation just before the opening credits and bursting with references to both Who's recent and distant past AND feeling more like the first part of an end-of-season finale rather than its opener ... you better BELIEVE the Doctor is back! :D

Had to download it to soak it in further...one of the best Dalek episodes in recent times.

No, and despite her leaving announcement on Friday I doubt that Jenna/Clara's 'extermination' will stick either (and I refuse to believe that the Doctor will kill a child, despite knowing who he grows into. But it's finding out how it all pans out that's half the fun).

I concede that it's possible Capaldi may be getting a new Tardis, though.

My main worry is that it felt rather disjointed and cluttered, more akin to an RTD finale than the usual Moffat fare.......I just hope that Moffat (unlike RTD) can pull it all together in a satisfying manner.

I confess to having a general souring toward these overtly contrived overlapping universes, not everything has to be personal ffs, Who, Batman, Bond imo all work that bit better when they arrive into something fresh and new (to them as well as us).

Enjoyed last night's greatly ... Davros might be a wily deceitful old bastard, but the Doctor is moreso. Skaro seemingly reduced to rubble again ... I wonder how long before it reappears?

Davros having a chuckle with the Doc was a sight to behold.

I'm also glad we got an explanation as to why the Daleks always say 'exterminate'....

I'm a bit disappointed he left Missy behind though after all that compassion for the enemy.

It didn't really work for me, the plot was contrived in an awkward manner and took a long time to not really surprise. The Doctors omniscience rather undermines any threat or tension atm, bizarrely he trusts Missy to keep Clara alive with not the faintest whiff of distress when she might have been exterminated, meanwhile Missy has to 'Run' when basically she demanded action from the Doctory she would never reasonably expect to occur.....and if the Daleks wanted regeneration energy....well the Master/Missy is surely also a candidate even now so is anything really achieved?

I love Capaldi, Clara was her usual self but everyone else just seemed a bit off and the plot kinda ran in two independent time frames depending on whether we were with the Doctor or not....yes its a time travel show but it left it feeling disjointed and unsatisfactory imo.

Enjoyed that last two-parter ... not crazy about the fourth wall-breaking at the start of last night's ep, though. Don't know how much I like the show acknowledging that it knows it's a show, if you get me.

It lost me a bit and I was fidgeting around. Added to that, there's a ratings scare creeping in.

I'm hoping Capaldi's Doctor Who faces the cybermen and weeping angels sometime this season.

Actually, on the fourth-wall-breaking thing ... the show DOES 'have previous'.

William Hartnell once extended an in-character Christmas greeting 'to all of you at home'.

Tom Baker (after the sonic had failed to perform as expected) looked directly down the camera and said 'Not even the sonic can get me out of this one'.

After Five had regenerated into Six and Nicola Bryant's Peri asks 'What's happened?', Colin Baker looks straight down the camera and says 'Change, my dear. And not a moment too soon'.

The 'ratings scare' is tabloid bullshit that gets trotted out every year ... yes, *only* 4 million watched the first episode as it was broadcast. But after the iPlayer views, watches of the BBC 3 repeat and the like were accounted for later it was more like 8 million.

Despite my early misgivings I think it has been an excellent run of episodes so far....as the the breaking of the fourth wall last week, hmm it might be such but it could simply be us being Clara's 'eyes' as she certainly doesn't question the comment directed to her at the end.

My only concern now is that we don't find the 'girl who didn't die' being used to further that 'pity me I'm immortal and omniscient and lonely' shtick that RTD laboured to brain numbing death throughout 10's era.
