    I’ll chalk it up to grief, and emotions clouding thinking, but Clara’s attempt at blackmail seemed a bit silly.

    First of all, why did she need all 7 keys?  If the Doctor is locked outside of the Tardis without a key, then she only needs at most 3 to make her point (destroy one to get attention and show she is serious, destroy the second on first…[Read more]

    1. I guess British trains are simpler than American ones – See ‘Taking of Pelham 1 2 3’ where overcoming the dead mans handle was complicated because they don’t want people to be able to send unmanned trains on tracks, ie. collisions, etc.

    I’ve been rather disappointed with the scripts with the new Doctor.  Listen was okay, at least until the ending; Time Heist wasn’t bad, but the rest were rather weak.
