And back to the episode... what did you guys think of the Doctor's self-destruct deal? Maybe the reveal of that should've coincided with that of the brother and made some kind of statement. I know the Doctor can be manipulative but to con these guys with that as well as the salvage seemed a bit nasty.
Well, they were nasty first, perfectly fine with possibly killing whoever was onboard the TARDIS with their beam. This Doctor is more of an asshole than his predecessors although Ten also had a dark, vengeful streak at times (e.g. how he punished the family in "Human Nature/Family of Blood")
And on a different note is anyone else fed up that the Doctor and Clara converse almost completely in One-Liners?
I'm more fed up with how Clara spelled out what she was thinking instead of showing it.
However, I voted "good". It was an exciting episode with some cleverness thrown in. The visuals were amazing. There were some odd cuts in the episode but I have a feeling they will have some meaning in hindsight.
Also, in the beginning of the episode, during the scene where the brothers look at the salvaged TARDIS we see a pair of boots sticking out from under the trash. But those weren't the Doctor's. So, did I miss something or did I imagine something?
