Re: 7X11 The Crimson Horror(Grading/Discussion)(SPOILERS

While I loved the twist regarding the "monster", and got a huge kick out of the old-timey flashback with the Doctor and Clara, I have to admit the rest of the episode just... didn't really do much for me (at least on a first viewing).

The story just felt overly-familiar-- it's yet another community where "all is not as it seems", where there's yet another mad, alien-controlled leader, and where once again people are mysteriously disappearing and/or being experimented on.

And while the Vastra/Jenny/Strax combo was fun to see once, I'm not sure they're really interesting enough to keep revisiting. There's only so many times you can keep hitting the same notes with those characters.
