    Think we will be seeking more of that race through the next season

    There was something off about that character (or rather the way it was acted). At the time I watched the episode it brought back unpleasant memories of Jar Jar Binks but you're closer with Dr Seuss.

    Either way that character was the weakest point of what was otherwise an excellent episode IMO.

    Yes now that you put it that way I think that was my feeling as well, the character just didn't seem to fit and wasn't overly well acted in my view

    Me and my partner are re-watching both under the lake and before the flood tonight. Fisher King is a bit interesting. very different. might have moffatt's turn on eternal ancients from before the universe (remember that spider race that supposedly formed the core of the earth)

    If the doctor is in the suspended animation chamber then he is going to be technically in a strict sense by the end of the episode, 185 years older again bringing his age up further...

    Last few episodes have been pretty 'meh' in my view. Weak story lines and just nothing to grab my attention.

    Latest episode "Sleep no more" would have to be the worst episode ever in my view.

    Its felt disjointed, the camera work was nauseating the acting wooden and the story just plain bad - I fear for the rest of the season, and if truth be told for the continuing success of Doctor Who!

    I really didn't like "Sleep No More" either, the concept was just too unreasonable, the faux Blair Witch Project camera work was off putting and it just didn't work. It was more like a low budget horror flick cut to meet PG13 cinema standards than a Dr Who episode

    I agree it did feel a bit clunky, but they do need to have a small step change in pacing to facilitate the rest of the season.

    I for one am glad that they're not handling the time lords like its someone else's issue to deal with in a few seasons time.

    I do wonder though if Timothy Dalton will be reprising his role as Lord Rassilon the last time round I though that there was so much more that could have been done with him but rtd was a bit of a tease like that.

    What did you say? Bigger on the inside?

    My latest mashup...

    Very well done. I really like Smith's response when Clara says its smaller on the outside.

    Thankyou.

    Indeed, that was the scene that promoted this video! Then I forgot about it... Then refound it again and finished it off...
