I know its Hallowe'een, but this is a wee bitty dark. Loving it, though.

HowlCapone Sat 01-Nov-14 21:03:10

Fabulous!

The cremation detail is a bit unnecessary,
I liked the rest though.

Can't stand Danny.

Yes, it was the cremation bit that I was concerned about. I know it had a later start, but any youngsters who've recently lost someone could be really upset by that.

Sandyginger Sat 01-Nov-14 21:12:11

Turned off as he said the 'three words' loved dr who but thAts just shit

Fab episode!

Hassled Sat 01-Nov-14 21:16:14

I thought the same about the effect that could have on a child who has lost someone recently - there's fun scary and then there's just really disturbing scary. But did the Cybermen bit immediately disprove the "don't cremate me" bit? I don't really understand.

Very much enjoyed it but tbh I think it's not been a prog for little ones for a long time now.

I hate Danny Pink. This episode was just too sentimental even with the cybermen. Danny died, she had a lucky escape, she should have moved on and found someone more lively and interesting and less clingy, and who learned his green cross code.

Hassled Sat 01-Nov-14 21:28:12

I quite like Danny but I struggle to see what Clara loves about him.

Sandyginger Sat 01-Nov-14 21:30:27

I turned over as soon as they said it so maybe it improved but it immediately touched a nerve maybe I'm too sensitive at the moment

ChoccyJules Sat 01-Nov-14 21:50:02

Hmm, I thought the cremation thing was too much. Tipped the balance for me.

TheLostPelvicFloorOfPoosh Sat 01-Nov-14 21:53:08

I was a bit hmm about the cremation bit, but the episode ending was Bloody Brilliant!!

longtallsally2 Sat 01-Nov-14 21:56:29

Another one who switched off, using ds2 as an excuse. I he was going to have nightmares after the cremation bit.

Might need to watch the ending on iplayer then tomorrow.

We loved this episode!

It scared the DC back to behind the sofa where they belong (or would have done, except it's against a wall). DH had to take DD to bed, and is still there, so I suspect will be sleeping with her tonight as a result (nearly posted that on the 'fathers sleeping with DDs' thread, but it's moved on to rather different territory).

My DM (in her 80s) told me this week that she has got a serious crush on this Doctor. So I'm looking at it all with new eyes!

Pixel Sat 01-Nov-14 22:14:04

Danny is so wet he can't even cross a road by himself but Clara would betray the Doctor because of him? hmm

Cremation part was awful but I've got to admit I laughed at the Medical science bit blush.

Can someone tell me what was the point of the boy asking to meet Danny only I think I might have missed that bit.

TheLostPelvicFloorOfPoosh Sat 01-Nov-14 22:18:54

I think the boy was someone that Danny killed when he was a soldier

tunaandcheesesandwich Sat 01-Nov-14 22:19:32

I enjoyed it, but I don't know what age this episode is suitable for. I think Dr Who is normally suitable for over 12s, but this episode was so dark and frightening about death. My DS age 13 is going to watch it tomorrow, but I'm not really that happy about him watching it.

AuntieStella Sat 01-Nov-14 22:22:05

"Can someone tell me what was the point of the boy asking to meet Danny only I think I might have missed that bit"

Danny was a soldier who shot a civilian when clearing a house during a kinetic operation. The boy was that civilian.

With Remembrance Day round the corner, it reminded me of the Wilfred Owen poem Strange Meeting, when the soldier met the enemy he had slain

Yes I got that thanks, but did he say anything to Danny?, because I just saw him running away.

mistyegg Sat 01-Nov-14 22:26:08

There was someone reflected in Danny's iPad right at the end of the episode - was it the same boy?

AuntieStella Sat 01-Nov-14 22:27:02

"Yes I got that thanks, but did he say anything to Danny?, because I just saw him running away."

Nothing coherent. Danny recognised him on sight. Words not needed, attempt at apology so inadequate. The human side of "collateral damage" I suppose.

Bunbaker Sat 01-Nov-14 22:27:16

I thought tonight's episode was so disappointing after the last two weeks' excellent episodes.

Ir1na Sat 01-Nov-14 23:35:02

Am I the only one who looooooves how dark it's getting lately? but thinks some of the actual plots are a bit crap/too unlikely

70isaLimitNotaTarget Sat 01-Nov-14 23:47:37

Is next week the last one?

DS is very meh with Dr Who at the moment (he's 15) . DH watches becauses it's not Matt Smith.

And there was a trailer for "Atlantis" wink
