    A fun episode. I was hoping the bank's owner would be Missy lol. I do wonder how it fits into the whole universe. Surely the Daleks would try to invade?

    Great episode, not least for being slightly out of the norm.

    Oh look, it's Doctor Who does Mission: Impossible.

    There was the mysterious briefing - The Architect/"Good morning Mr. Phelps".
    The Man with the Plan - The Doctor/Jim Phelps.
    The good looking girl - Clara/Cinamon Carter.
    The tech genius - Psi/Barney Collier.
    The master of disguise - Saibra/Rollin Hand.

    The only member of the team that was missing, was a Wily Armitage "strong guy" type character.

    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.

    OK...

    1. Beginning was very very warped...

    2. OK...it became obvious who the Architect was...we know the Doctor doesn't like himself...

    3. OK so...Doctor gives Carabos his details...and then she hires him...because she then decides she wants to save the Teller-creatures?

    Crazy but fun!

    WHAT? Why? How? What?
    This didn't make any sense at all.
    But it was so well played out, that I as good as don't care.

    Basicly, it's the eybrows! Loved it!
    Nobody asked me, if I wanted to live. So don't anyone tell me how I shoul lead my life.

    It's like most bank heist movies... Bonkers but fun.

    But... Did I hear a reference to Mr Tucker there?! The way Capaldi delivered a line...

    I don't know the Tucker character/show, but did think they were very much leaving it behind, at least while he's playing the Doctor... Yes, it's going over any kids' heads... but still...

    Another fun episode. I liked the concept of this one.

    I think I have it all clear in my mind, but I need to watch it again to be sure.

    My only slight gripe with it was the use of the idea that "every lonely monster needs a companion" from Hide. But I'm not really grumbling too much about it, because it was nicely done.

    Keeley Hawes was excellent.

    BTW my daughter correctly guessed early on who had arranged the heist and who was in the private vault.

    So am I, I don't like this deal where the companion has to be dragged kicking and screaming into the Tardis.

    What's creepy about wanting to stay in one place for a while, and, trying to live an everyday life, and hold down a job?

    I think if there's any creep factor it's that the doctor can't just let her be and let her have a life.

    Nothing, the creepy part is the Doctor dragging her off all the time under protest

    I enjoyed this episode as well! I figured the mastermind behind it was probably the Doctor. When they said each of them has something of value in the vault I thought it might be the Tardis, but that guess was wrong!

    I fail to see what's creepy about it. They're friends. It's the same as getting a text from a mate after a long day:

    "Hey, it's me. coming out?"
    "Nah, I just want a quiet night."
    "Aww come on! It'll make you feel better!"
    "Nah, really... I'm good. I'm not feeling great."
    "Come on! Let's go! You seem to be under the mistaken impression that I'm giving you the option..."

    I mean seriously, we've all got friends like that.
    Please do me a huge favour and help me be with the love of my life.

    I certainly don't. Well, maybe I did as a student when I went out more than once or twice a year, but certainly not now.

    I like Danny, and I hope we'll see him join Clara and the Doctor on some adventures. He's certainly no doormat like Rory was. The plot of this one didn't make much sense to me, but then bank heist plots usually don't. It was fun, though, and I like Capaldi's Doctor.

    Me too.

    But...
    Spoiler:
    The trailer for next week looks like it's going to come to a head and sort it out. Hopefully.

    I think the Doctor doesn't understand that Clara is having second thoughts. Up til now he's just turned up and said "Let's go on an adventure!" and she's happily gone with him. I think this Doctor, even more than the 11th Doctor, just doesn't get it. He can't understand why she prefers to go on a date with Danny rather than go off into time and space with him. This Doctor's attitude seems a lot more alien.

    Edit - P90, yes I've known somebody who won't take no for an answer as well.
