        Did anybody else have a bit of a reaction to how often JoDoc uses the sonic? 

    I didn’t focus on how often it was used as much as HOW it was used.   As the end of the episode grew near, I began to wonder which mode she would use each time she pulled it of her pocket.  Seems like it has at least two modes……(1.)going to poke a wil…[Read more]

    The sniper bots were terrible shots.  The native inhabitants must not have been nearly as quick as humans.   Or perhaps they trained at the Storm Trooper Academy…

     

    I think I am enjoying the companion introductions without them being seduced by the capabilities of the TARDIS…..at least right away.  From their point of view, the best fe…[Read more]

    Upon second viewing…

    The contestants just needed to arrive at the Ghost Monument site.  Viewing the monument wasn’t required.

    Ghost Monument appears roughly every 1000 rotations or so….not years like I previously thought.

     

    I can’t stop thinking about the contest.   The prize to the winner suggests there must have been spectators.   Th…[Read more]

    We got the Title sequence here in the States this time.   New visuals…..familiar time.  Was a little disappointed by that.

    To win the contest…..didn’t one have to witness the Ghost Monument or just arrive where it normally appears?  Need a second viewing….as usual.  🙂

     

    Very surprised the Doctor was so defeated at the end…..I was tot…[Read more]

    What do you mean by intro segment?

     

    Not it sure what to call it exactly……Title Sequence maybe?

    The bit that is played right after the opening scene of each episode.   Usually a tune, with a video representation of moving though space-time…..during which the TARDIS appears at some point.

     

    I suspect we didn’t get that…[Read more]

    Did the UK viewers get an intro segment?   We didn’t get one over here in the States.  :(.

    I look forward to those….

  • Notime replied to the topic The Woman Who Fell To Earth

    Thank you for the explanation @kharis.  I suspected as much but wasn’t really all that certain.

    Not sure what is my favorite part of the episode….I liked how the Doctor shouted at the hunter to stand still and then bolted in pursuit when it fled.   Got a kick out of that wouldn’t be the first instinct reaction for us mortals.

    Welcome back Doctor!

    Feels like a great season on the way.

    Bit of adrenalin …

    Dash of outrage…

    Heat of panic…

    Nice batch of ingredients.

     

    Can anyone explain the Sheffield Steel reference?  Us Americans are clueless over here….

    Great episode.  I have been looking forward in anticipation to see the chemistry between these two and I wasn’t disappointed.  Fantastic season!

    I was a bit surprised that River didn’t pick up on who he was but then again she was used to a doctor who normally fumbles about.  CapDoc just stood back and let the madness happen around hi…[Read more]

    Wow, was finally able to read all the comments on all the pages.  Great discussion.

    I still can’t help but think the Doctor realized that Clara failed to reverse the polarity and in fact rendered the neural block useless so he decided to fake his memory wipe.  It just seemed that way to me when I re-watched the episode.  His mannerisms seem to sh…[Read more]

    @puroandson

    hello and welcome to you from the friendly hybrid. Glad you loved it too -a lot of people did. We’re one of them.

    Thank you for the welcome.   I was exposed to Doctor Who via BBC America a few seasons ago right about the time that Clara became a regular on the show.  I soon found a way to watch all the episodes beginning with Rose and…[Read more]

    @pendant

    Yep – and since the Clara tribute was still on it, we can deduce that it was carried to Nevada, rather then went under its own steam.

    Agreed.  Well deduced.

    Taking that thought a bit further….I presume Clara must have been very moved to see the tribute left on the outside of the tardis.   She no doubt would have known exactly who did…[Read more]

    @swordwhale

    I wonder where they filmed “Nevada”. Maybe a CG wild west was easier than actually going there. Also nobody here drives… whatever that “truck” was. Looks like a mutant Landrover. Trucks are huge, beat up, and can carry an entire cow in the bed. Usually named Chevy or Ford. Sometimes Ram. See also Dodge. (both are a clue as to why yo…

    Are there any theories about who drove the Doctor to the diner?  Did he simply catch a ride from a friendly stranger or was the driver someone more interesting?

  • Notime replied to the topic Hell Bent

    @ichabod Thank you!  That opens the door nicely for me.  Also helps me understand why he turned his back and played his guitar as Clara walked away.  This explanation has turned what I had first viewed as a wasted scene into one of the most powerful moments in the Doctor – Clara story.

    @puroandson. Yes.  That works nicely.  I like it.  The neura…[Read more]

    @lisa

    Conspiracy theory after watching HB tonight
    The Doctor left the sonic glasses on the console on purpose knowing Clara
    would watch on the screen, He also left the mind wiper there. He set it up?
    He figured out that he had to part from Clara. So was he making it easier for
    her? Seems to me that he really didn’t loose a lot of his memory. I r…
