At least they didn't have the restored people come magically back to life like in the black cube episode. Most of them are dead now.

Re: 7x06 The Bells of St John - review/ discussion

Usually I like that about the show, but the cubes were a serious abuse of that kind of reset button, to be sure...

Not the greatest, not even great, but pretty good, quite enjoyable.

I liked how Clara figured out where they were, btw. That was a nice commentary on social media.
Did anyone else guess where they were by what you could see out of the office window? Or was that just me?!!

Nothing remarkable, but not horrible either - just sort of there. Smith as marvellous as ever but I do hope Clara will become at least remotely interesting in the very near future.

"Good" seems an appropriate rating.

A very satisfying romp. I liked the theme music change. Clara looked younger than the other times we saw her.

I very much want her jacket!



I'm happy to have a Clara mystery

I thought it was great. Reminded me a lot of a Season 26 story, and that's high praise from me.

Overnight ratings are in: 6.2 million viewers, roughly consistent with what "Asylum of the Daleks" got last year and what "The Impossible Astronaut" got way back in April 2011. With timeshift, the final figure should approach 8 million. So, another strong performance.

Just finished watching the Nerdist with it's commentary on the show and interviews with Matt and Jenna.

Quite entertaining.

Very enjoyable indeed, this episode just whipped by at a cracking pace, watched in HD and it looked fantatsic, no issues with colours or stuff like that.

Roll on next week.

Re: 7x06 The Bells of St John - review/ discussion

An okay episode. I wouldn't call it "awesome" or anything but it was entertaining and towards the end became quite fun to watch. The episode started off seeming like it was going to be something of a modernized rehash of The Idiot's Lantern but thankfully the end product is sufficiently different. There are some familiar Moffat tropes here, most notably creepy kids posing a threat. The interaction between Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman saved the episode and really is the highlight of the show. But really the last half of the episode is a blast to watch with great one-liner and really cool moments like driving a motorcycle up the side of a building. Certainly one of the better S7 episodes (so far).

So I assume they're setting things up for a greater mystery regarding who the mysterious lady at the shop is that gave Clara the TARDIS phone number. Also weird is the phone in the door panel ins't actually supposed to be a real phone, according to The Empty Child, though it did get a call in that very episode too. My eagle eye spotted the author of the book the boy was reading that Clara praised was none other than Amelia Williams. So I guess Amy had quite a successful career as an author in her post-TARDIS life.
