    You remind me of @BobTheSkutter in his PIP assessment where the assessor kept adding points we hadn't asked for because Kev was just so used to working around his limitations that we didn't even notice them.

    I hear your point that the Doctor is an alien... I think my point was more that it may be a less familiar experience for him to be on the receiving end of bigotry rather than witnessing it being weilded against someone else, so compared with his reaction to the treatment of Billie, he may be at...

    I may be wrong here (admitting this is not my strong suit) but I wonder if it was easier for a (white privileged) Doctor to defend his companion against racism than it is for a black Doctor to defend himself? The person who should have been the ally was Ruby. I confess somewhere about 2/3...

    Just a few random thoughts: It's not a slug, it's a bug. It has legs/feet and resembles a caterpillar more than anything. More importantly, it was created by an (AI) computer, so it's a computer bug. Nobody steps on anything in this one... but there's a whole slap in the face plot about people...

    Did anyone else think the Old Woman looked like William Hartnell at first?

    To be honest I'm surprised they got away with this in the run up to a UK election.

    It filled an episode in the run? Gave the make-up people the chance to age Millie? Maybe "Mad Jack" is channelled energy from John Barrowman still sulking.

    Yuk. This was a complete cabbage soup. It made no sense whichever way you look at it and was deeply unsatisfying. I love a good fantasy with a horror edge, but it needs to follow some internal logic. Was there a reason why Ruby's adoptive Mum left in a Welsh taxi? Because the rest of the...

    Only seen a few stills, but this appears to be an episode about what happens if you step on a roomba?

    But those notes weren't on a stave, so weren't readable anyway. You could get a sense of them but not the actual notes. I liked this one, not least because music is non-binary, inclusive and for/of everyone. Anyone else wondering who else will turn up from the Toymaker's family? Will we see a...

    Not sure I appreciated getting two episodes back to back to start the season. Aside from feeling a little indigestable, it made it harder to process either story. When I realised the new series was starting my thought was "that'll be entertaining ". And at risk of damning with faint praise, it...

    Interesting to see people in the other thread (about the song) saying not only would they not watch, they will stop watching altogether because of the gruesome and rather specific cannibalism references. (Back to "Holy infant, so tender and mild"...) This struck me as pure panto. The villains...

    Spoilers Wild Blue Yonder grade and discussion thread

    Who has always had an element of "unseen divine" going on, which I have managed over the years to put down to the TARDIS being sentient and having stolen a Time Lord for her own purposes. But this mini series seems to have ramped that up to eleven, with all characters but especially the Doctor...
