Really? I thought it looked like they'd badly stretched the budget, none of the aliens even had faces that moved. The sets really limited. There were some interesting stuff that didn't really seem to hit properly. And to be honest the whole thing with Clara is grating. What is it with Moffat and the obsession that the companion has to be special, and the Doctor will have known/seen them through various parts of their life? Amy, River (in a round about sort of way), Reinette, now Clara, it's annoying.
The sets were limited and the space scooter was made of wood, but then so is the TARDIS.
He's the doctor he can be choosy about his companions.
He can be choosy but I mean Amy "the girl who waited" and was special because there was this big mystery round her with the crack and the missing people and all that.
River, all the backwards timey wimey stuff.
Reinette, she manages to read his mind and know all about him, no one has ever done that.
Now Clara who is "impossible." It's all well them being special because they have characteristics that the Doctor likes or are clever or whatever but these big impossible, unique, specialness just seems needless and pointless.
Miss Haynes, if you're ever under a falling building and somebody runs up and offers to pick you up and carry you to safety, don't think, don't pause, don't hesitate for a moment, just spit in his eye.
