Nice one. I like how Bill is taking more charge and doesnt get intimidated. She will need that once the Doctors time comes.

What was up with the Tardis though? It doesnt go where it doesnt want to and that was even confirmed this season. It seemed like it purposefully went for missy, but without that she wouldnt even have been needed. I wonder if Missy could have called it from inside the vault.

I liked the Ice Warrior queen. Cool story. That said, why the Tardis did as it did remains a mystery.

Just checked.. and I was wrong - I thought perhaps the actress who played Racnoss was also the Ice Warrior Queen...

All in All... I enjoyed this! At least there was no f'n spindly skun Ice Warriors running about.

I even admit, I did not see the ending coming... but had a tear when it arrived. :) Good old Alpha Centuri! Love it!
