    maybe someone can explain how the Daleks keep getting resurrected? I'm sure they have been sucked into other dimensions and the universe has rebooted a few times? Why didnt the daleks recognize the Doctor? They did in the last season?

    I think mr Pink is creepy lol.

    The Daleks were officially ressurected permently in Victory of the Daleks. That was the whole point, to get past this constant 'The Daleks are extinct... oh wait'. They're now back and a continuing menace, there's more of them than The Docto ever meets at one time.

    I liked this episode. Capaldi is growing on me. He's still not there YET, but he's looking good. The episode itself was very strong. Very Classic Who in pacing and it worked. I definitely preferred the spaceywacey classic Sci Fi ness of this episode.

    I have mixed feelings on this one. The effects were superb. The new Doctor has a nice edge to him. And the inside the Dalek concept was at least an attempt to put a new spin on it. On the other hand, the 'I am a Good man?' stuff was a little on the nose for me. And Clara having to teach the Doctor doesn't seem like a great concept to me.

    Tighter and more focused than last week though at least.

    The Daleks recognised the 11th Doctor because they downloaded Tasha's memories in Time of the Doctor. They don't recognise the 12th yet.

    Probably the best Dalek episode for a long time - they actually felt like the creepy, scary, nigh unbeatable menaces they've always been painted as, and the revelation that they consume people for sustenance was suitably evil. Maybe the trick is allowing the Doctor to win battles but never the war, and always at a high cost... little Pyrrhic victories.

    Capaldi is growing on me more but I feel his Doctor is still lacking something... I wondered if maybe, because he is not just another regeneration but the first incarnation of a whole new regeneration cycle, maybe it takes longer for his personality to settle and solidify, or maybe introspection and self-doubt are just this incarnation's hallmarks.

    Loved the idea of morality as malfunction for the daleks (would a 'good' Dalek therefore be perceived by other Daleks the way we perceive dangerous sociopaths?), and the twist with Rusty's hatred simply being redirected to his own kind... saw it coming though, the moment Rusty kept going on about divine perfection and beauty in an echo of Asylum of the Daleks. I really thought Rusty was going to turn out to be Dalek Caan at a few points, especially the 'I see into your soul, Doctor' line.

    Not bad overall, primarily because of some good and much needed development for the Daleks.
    And now it's time for one last bow, like all your other selves. Eleven's hour is over now... the clock is striking Twelve's.

    Also can I point out that the Dalek companion idea from Deep Breath's thread doesn't seem so daft now.

    So then, Danny Pink.

    Ex-military.

    Army or Royal Marines?
    He doesn't seem to be the RAF or Royal Navy "type" to me for some reason.

    Junior officer, NCO, or just plain Private?

    Or maybe he's ex-UNIT?

    Long before you and I were born, others beat these benches with their empty cups,
    To the night and its stars, to the here and now with who we are.

    Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
    And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

    Hard to say. But I think I like him. He has a definite amount of emotional weight and has a dark past, but simultaneously, he's a proper bloke. Military, can confidently deal with kids and enemies of the realm alike.... can't talk to girls to save his life.

    I'd love for the Doctor to call him "Pinky" - as in "Pinky and the Brain".

    He seems like an ex-Junior Officer to me. British Army. If he was RAF, Navy or Marines I doubt he'd refer to himself a soldier.

    For those who don't know, the UK government has a specific programme for getting ex-military into jobs as teachers. Seems to think it helps the military come out of the forces and do something specific and that their skills are ideal for teaching. From personal experience of the guys in question, the likelihood of ex-military being a bit rubbish around girls is laughable...

    I thought that was another enjoyable episode. One of the better Dalek episodes we've had recently.

    I'm not quite clear in my mind why they had to be miniaturised & had to go inside the Dalek to repair it, but I've only watched the episode once so I may have missed something.

    Unfortunately Clara did something which is one of my pet hates - she slapped the Doctor's face. It's not something I like to see. She can slap him and get away with it, but if he slapped her like that...

    Once again the pacing was closer to "classic" Who, which I rather enjoyed. Something I didn't like was the wobbly camera, particularly on the interior TARDIS scenes.

    I really like the new character, Danny Pink. Hmmm, we also had Journey Blue in this episode and next episode I strongly suspect we will get

    Spoiler:

    Will Scarlett


    More red herrings I presume.

    I do like the Doctor's attitude in this. I am strongly reminded of the 7th Doctor and Ace. Slightly cold and mysterious with an agenda of his own that he isn't telling his companion about.

    Since when does the Doctor not like soldiers? He didn't have any problems with this lot...

    Only because the Dalek's were a vehicle to tell a different story

    Nope, it even got a lantern hung on it as "a good idea for a scifi movie"

    Unfortunately Clara did something which is one of my pet hates - she slapped the Doctor's face. It's not something I like to see. She can slap him and get away with it, but if he slapped her like that...
    Well, if we dodge the double standard which I think you are alluding to here, you have to bear in mind that the Doctor NEEDS to be stopped sometimes, and she did stop him and make him consider what the lesson was, rather than what he thought was going on.

    Once again the pacing was closer to "classic" Who, which I rather enjoyed. Something I didn't like was the wobbly camera, particularly on the interior TARDIS scenes.
    we ALL fear the "it's shakey cam, I use it now, cause it's cool"..........

    He just says what he needs to say, rather than the open slather approach.

    He has no problems with -working- with them, he does not like taking them as companions, the only standout to me on that front is Teela, and she was a WARRIOR, not a SOLDIER.
