Re: 7x09 Hide - rating and discussion thread

I think they made up and published the titles with a fairly sketchy idea of the plots. Then the plots developed and in some cases they were stuck with a title thart didn't fit any more. Just one more reason why it all feels a bit haphazard this season.

I just read that the writer wanted to have Quatermass in the episode but couldn't get the rights. The Doctor and Quatermass, that'd have been wild.

And to add to the "Hide" business, I also heard it had a working title of "Hider in the House" at some point. After "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship", that couldn't have been too on-the-nose.
All Doctor Who episodes should follow this title format:
- Nestenes in a Shop Window
- Dalek in a Basement
- Internet Brain-Stealers in a Tower
- Evil God on a Planet
- Ice Warrior on a Submarine
- Daleks in Manhattan
Clockwork robots in preRevolutionary France?

^^I was going to describe that one as Horse on a Spaceship, but obviously I need to get some perspective.

In that case shouldn't they rename the whole show Madman in a Blue Box...?

Still not sure how I feel on this one; The first half is REALLY strong and the second half is good too but way.. looser and messier. This should have been an out and out classic and is easily the most ambitious Who since The Girl Who Waited. As it stands though, it's ending does let it down a little.

Re: 7x09 Hide - rating and discussion thread

I'm sorry if it was mentioned earlier, I didn't read all the pages, but was that a "good" monster? Is this something that's going to breed and eat everyone? I know The Doctor thought he was helping out, but that monster didn't seem too friendly when he was trapped there. Why does he think it's going to just be happy now that it's got it's mate. It'll start with eating the major and the rest. They'll land in a future were the Earth is crawling with them.

No, the monster was not threatening in any way.

I wonder if the bigger one could eat people even if the one inside the house doesn't. Maybe the Doctor saw from its teeth it's herbivorous.
