    That was rather good. Liked that a lot.

    Spacesuits come in kids' sizes now?

    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.

    1. Why the hell did anyone think it was a good idea to keep Courtney in the Tardis?

    2. I do not like giant spiders!

    3. Is it me or did Clara seem younger in this?

    4. Oh come on...creature that's about to destroy the moon...anyone would have wiped it out...can't blame Clara for being pod at the Doctor...

    Solid enough ep.

    I'm not quite sure what to make of that episode... I liked it. I loved parts of it (You go Clara!)... It was just, more peculiar than usual.
    Please do me a huge favour and help me be with the love of my life.

    Didn't hate it or love it. Liked the ending with Pink. Didn't like the ending with the moon.

    Hmm. Weird episode, felt like a bit of a mess. Liked the scraped together space program using museum pieces (somebody's been reading Stephen Baxter's Titan), disliked the by now typical human response to something alien going on, the revelation about the Moon's nature felt, well, silly. It also felt tacked on and grossly underused, and I feel that more time should have been spent on that than on the spider-germ things.

    Clara getting angry at the Doctor was well done but felt a little forced. I like Twelve more and more, but the show is feeling a bit strange - and strained.
    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.

    I really didn't like this one. Ridiculous idea. The moon is an egg... that hatches a space chicken/soup dragon... that immediately lays an egg as big as itself?

    Nor did I like writer Peter Harness having his three female characters discussing whether or not to kill a foetus, then telling us it's a realy bad idea to do so. Giving messages to the audience should be left to Star Trek.

    Good things that I liked - the occasional Ark in Space references, Lanzarote looked absolutely brilliant as the moon and there was McLaren!! friom Porridge!

    Got to admit this really bothered me as well, but then Who doesn't exactly adhere to realistic science.

    Who is starting to feel very message heavy, which I do not appreciate. I also agree with a few friends of mine that the Doctor's anti-soldier sentiment is wearing thin. I think I get the character's reason for it, fine, but it is now forced and unhelpful.

    I thought I recognised him!

    This episode is a real mixed bag for me.

    Eeeeeek!!!!!!!!!!! Did not like parts of it. The Moon is an egg... What? What? What?

    The mood swing on Clara and her telling the Doctor off was the best part of the episode. It had been building up over the last few weeks and she let rip.. Good on you Clara.

    Why is that kid now tagging along on the TARDIS?

    The Moon is an egg....... Ugh I still can't believe they went there.

    No, 1.2 million tons lighter than itself.
    I actually did not mind that part as it was dovetailed with the idea of not giving up looking to the stars, which is where the ep started. It's silly, but it is acceptably silly for Who.

    Nor did I like writer Peter Harness having his three female characters discussing whether or not to kill a foetus, then telling us it's a realy bad idea to do so. Giving messages to the audience should be left to Star Trek.
    It was NOT a foetus, it was 2 hours off being born!!
    If ANYTHING the message I got from it is "My Human Children are more important than yours and I WILL kill to protect them" It's the same message that was used in "The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood".

    Good things that I liked - the occasional Ark in Space references, Lanzarote looked absolutely brilliant as the moon and there was McLaren!! friom Porridge!

    Geez Blen, you REALLY didn't like it
    I would give it a 3.5, but also say it was the worst ep of the season so far.

    Dictionary definition of Foetus - the young of an animal in the womb or egg, esp. in the later stages of development, in humans being after the end of the second month of gestation.

    Latter, yes.
    Last??
    Either way you choose to parse it, Abortion has to do with before the fetal stage is achieved, and I don't know too many people that would be willing to abort a child when it could survive independently of it's mother/shell/womb. To claim that (as some have) that the story is about abortion is just wrong on so many levels. People simply are not saying "a mother at 37 weeks can abort a child", even the most hardened person would have thoughts about that. 5 weeks? 12 weeks? THAT is the grey area.

    I liked this episode. It seemed to me that Clara basically forced him to take Courtney because he hadn't made her feel "special" enough and that was his way of making her happy.

    I guess I'm alone in this, but I'm not liking Clara right now. I just don't like her attitude, the shut ups, the slap and warning of more slaps. It seems to me that she is still disappointed/angry that he is no longer the Doctor that she started her adventures with.

    I also hope that the Doctor's frequent comments about Pink being a soldier are coming to an end. I like Pink and feel like he balances out Clara.

    It was OK but there was something missing, cant quite put my finger on it.

    It was nice seeing Eliis George, hopefully she gets good drama grades!

    I think the game changer bit was because The Doctor didn't stay to hold Clara's hand while she made a decision..

    It clearly means he's evil now

    But like he said, it's not his planet, not his moon and not the future of his species that will change. So why should he be expected to make the decision for them?

    Hmm.

    That's about all I can say. By and large good, but interrupted by moments of 'hmm'.

    Indeed.. The human race lost interest in going to space.. How is that possible? Titan is right there! How can anyone not want to go to Titan?
