Re: 7X12 Nightmare in Silver(Grading/Discussion)(SPOILERS)

This is the first time in weeks when I may actually get to sit and watch this live, and hopefully join the commentary.

If for no other reason, I'm psyched to see the Cybermen again. Are these original CM or the parallel-universe version?

Re: 7X12 Nightmare in Silver(Grading/Discussion)(SPOILERS)

I want to vote "average" but I actually do think Iron Man 3 was better than this. Strange choice for the lowest rating.

Harsh, but fair.

I did like the Cyberman design, especially the face plate.

Re: 7X12 Nightmare in Silver(Grading/Discussion)(SPOILERS)

Average (another one ) this 2nd half has been a real dissapointment for me, I am struggling to care about these standalone episodes anymore I want more focus on who is Clara and The First Question. Season 6 really spoilt me and its changed what I want from the show.

Next week really looks like it should be a 2 parter, why after all the build up with the Silence and leading into the whole question arc would Moffat give the resolution to it only 1 episode

I dunno I really liked this episode but then I'm a sucker for the Cybermen or the Daleks. The kids were a bit annoying but then they weren't in most of the episode so it didn't matter much. Also loved to hear the Cybermen theme again, it's been a while.

What a tough crowd!

I enjoyed this episode a good deal; It's probably my favorite Cyberman episode of the new series. I'd rate it a 4/5 only because it seemed to drag a little in the middle -- but other than that, it gave me everything I wanted in an episode of Doctor Who and was exciting.

Re: 7X12 Nightmare in Silver(Grading/Discussion)(SPOILERS)

1) If the Cybermen can move that fast why don't they do it all the time?
2) Matthew Waterhouse will love this episode as it finally introduces someone who's a worse actor and more annoying character than Adric.
2) The Temple Of sodding Peace again? Seriously if you're compelled to shoot there every single series at least try and diguise the fact.

Re: 7X12 Nightmare in Silver(Grading/Discussion)(SPOILERS)

A jolly good episode! Was pretty much how I expected it. Almost only put 4/5, but I think this deserves that extra rating. Matt Smith acted his ass off, Warwick Davies was great, and the Cybermen are fantastic!

I feel however this would have worked so much better as a two parter like Asylum of the Daleks would have also benefited from that.

I particularly enjoyed the pictures of all the doctors, I love it when they put in past references. The episode reminded me of Earthshock for some reason, the soldiers uniform looked similar to the ones worn by the Earthshock crew. Also enjoyed the evil doctor. "Mister Clever" made me laugh a bit.

Probably in my top 5 Smith episodes (although there's a lot of his episodes I can't stand, but still), I think I still prefer a lot of the other cybermen stories by far though. Yet again which has been a problem with a lot of series 7 episodes is that too much was crammed into one episode. This could have benefited from being a two parter, maybe even a three parter. Same with Asylum.

Re: 7X12 Nightmare in Silver(Grading/Discussion)(SPOILERS)

Got bored about midway through which is never a good sign. Strangely enough I still wish it could have beern a two parter, for no other reason than to ratchet up the tension which the story was sorely lacking.

If it weren't for SJA I could swear that the BBC had the same rule as Hollywood, that all children have to be smug, annoying little brats. I was actually smiling when whatsherface got carried off by a cyberman.

Despite that, the best part was Warwick Davis, who pretty much stole the show. Wouldn't mind seeing him again.

These are the original Telos cybermen. Apparently they have been the original ones since 2010 when they got their C symbols removed, it's just a coincidence they look the same.

I like to think however the original 80s cybermen bumped into a batch of Lumic Cybermen, concluded the Kumic cybs were better, and stole their technology.

It's never been stated on screen that that's the case.

I know right, when the new cybermen were announced I still thought it was the Lumic Cybermen. I was wondering where they all came from.

They've not even really stated it now. This seems to be a problem with Moffat lately. Not really any explanation for where they grabbed the new dalek emperor from, why they're using the RTD daleks again (we know in real life why they are, but no on screen explanation), where the fuck Skaro's come from, and where the hell has the Asylum planet come from. Annother thing that bugs me is the doctor seems to have given up with the daleks now, before he tried to completely eradicate them, now he just leaves them, doesn't even try to destroy them. And now there's been no explanation for the Telosian Cybermen coming back.

Why would you need an explanation? They were never wiped out.
