Visually, they were one of the best looking and genuinely scary creatures for a long time.

That's true. Seriously, why all the children?

 

I've just realised how pessimistic I must sound in this thread after each new episode.

I love that this has been made: https://twitter.com/...566235989323776

 

:lol: Couldn't help thinking that through a lot of the episode.

I don't mind if somethings are a little bit off, there's a pretty large amount of suspension of disbelief already in Doctor Who, (it's about a time travelling two thousand year old alien whose had 13 different bodies and countless human companions) so it really doesn't bother if a moon creature can hatch a moon egg straight after it's been born. It works for the story so I don't think it's relevant. It's only when the story doesn't follow it's own canon that I find it harder to go with. (For instance, Angels Take Manhattan, as much as I love that episode, I do find it hard to believe that there's no way the Doctor could ever see Amy and Rory again when there's plenty of loop holes left wide open.)

 

Sorry, this isn't meant to be a personal rant towards you; it just irks me a little when people say things like "well this can't happen, or this shouldn't." It just sounds very inside-the-box-thinking to me. :ninja:

You're right, and I really should ease up on it, but it's just that I don't remember there being all these inaccuracies in the past. I meant, it obviously wasn't completely scientifically accurate, but they were never critical to the episode (that's why the moon egg annoyed me so much - stretching it wouldn't increase its gravitational field strength, and in fact would make it weaker).

 You're certainly nothing wrong to be critical, I just find that the story is more important that the accuracy of a lot of things to me, especially when it happens in science fiction. I'm more interested in the fiction than the science. :P

For me, good science isn't an integral part of good science fiction (see: Flatline), but bad science is almost always detrimental to sci fi (see: Kill the Moon). My opinion, of course.

That's because Moffat wasn't in charge in the past.

What about the TARDIS towing the fucking Earth back into place in Journey's End?! There are so so so many ridiculous things that happen in Doctor Who I just find it weird to harp on them happening now. It's always been that way.

 

 I don't think any of us actually know how the TARDIS works. Just because something different happened once in an episode before doesn't mean it's always going to work that way.

 

Also, I'd like to say that I think this might be my favorite season of New Who, maybe even of Doctor Who in general. With only three episodes left, it's looking likely. I think Moffat has done a fantastic job of fixing mistakes he made in previous seasons, and putting together a season that might go down as his finest work as a showrunner. I'm extremely excited for what's next.

We haven't watched tonight's show yet but I mentioned to hubby that I'd heard it was a good ep (thanks everyone for your spoilers - I read them anyway!) and all he asked was if we'd understand him better in this ep. We are really struggling with his accent. Like a lot. :(

I had to watch Deep Breath a couple of times to catch everything - and I was used to Peter Capaldi's accent!! Is there a way to get subtitles, maybe?

We have to pay extra to get subtitles. Comcast sucks! But that would work so nicely. :P

I don't mind things like that if they make for good television, and the Journey's End bit was brilliant, so I'm fine with it. Same with this episode. Which is still brilliant.

This. There is a pretty big suspension of disbelief in Doctor Who anyway. If the story is good enough it can carry the science being totally bonkers. Like it's cool if some of their story lines are scientifically accurate, but it's not the end of the world to me if they're not.

Yeah, exactly. As long as it makes sense within the context of the Doctor Who universe (which has always been bonkers), I have no issue with the science.

I liked this episode because we had Clara on her own without the Doctor, and so we lost that sense of "Oh, the Doctor's here, everything will be okay!" We had the Doctor in a pretty powerless position throughout the episode which was new and interesting, and of course we had Clara being the Doctor. Great character progression with her, and it obviously gave her a bit of a look into what it's like to be the person making the tough decisions, and having to call the shots in situations where there is no good choice to make. I'm interested to see if this draws her closer to the Doctor. In the past couple of episodes we see her pushing the Doctor away for Danny, but here we see her choosing the Doctor over Danny once more, so I'm interested to see how that plays out. 

 

I agree with Tom, the monsters this week were fantastic, genuinely scary for a change :happy:

 

edit: I knew the TARDIS in siege mode or whatever it was looked like something and I just realized what! It was a tiny little version of the Pandorica, oh man.
