1:10 So far, totally on board conceptually. The concept is suitably creepy and close to home, the sort of thing that just might give me nightmares of the most delicious kind.
2:06 Ooo, new credits! Pretty! And the Doc’s face is back! I like, even if it does look a bit like a screensaver. It always has anyway.
3:22 Oh no, the Doctor is going to need a horse. This does not bode well.
4:45 An Amy Pond reference, already? Subtle. Not at all smug and self-satisfied. (Sarcasm).
6:54 Clara, you’re tech skills are not impressive.
7:16 Women are evil spirits, haha. Very funny, Stephen Moffat. Why do I get the feeling you’re only half joking?
8:15 Why hasn’t Clara’s soul been sucked into the internet? What makes her so special?
9:37 When your conscious is telling you to kill people, you might want to get that checked out.
11:45 Creepy children, a classic.
12:10 OKAY that is actually creepy, and on multiple levels.
13:03 Enough with the bloody bow-tie and things being cool. Way over-used.
14:28 The Doctor, hacker extraordinaire!
15:30 I wonder if Clara gets to keep the “spliced in” tech skills? Is she going to be a hacker extraordinaire too now?
17:45 Who eats half a cookie and then walks away? (The Doctor, apparently).
18:55 I bet websearchs for “quadracycle” went way up just after this episode aired.
21:40 I don’t think you need to know much about the internet to know about the existence of Twitter.
22:15 If he would just open the TARDIS before telling young pretty females who don’t know him to get in it this would all go a lot smoother.
23:30: Ooo, new TARDIS! Not at all like a screensaver! Hmmm, not sure how I feel about this. I like the blue light but it’s much more tech-y. Reminds me of a cyberman actually, very old-fashioned robot. Think I preferred the coral.
24:00 A good old-fashioned high-tempo crisis complete with accompanying music, very good.
25:20 Is it just me or have we been having a lot of middle-aged female villains with lesbian haircuts lately?
25:40: “It’s a time machine; you never have to wait for breakfast.” If I didn’t already want to hitch a ride in the TARDIS that would totally seal the deal.
27:10 People are uploading their photos awfully quickly.
29:45 Has the Doctor never heard of babysitting? Or au pair-ing? It’s really, really not strange or notable for a young women to work for widower taking care of his children. I’m not sure if the insistence that it is is coming from the Doctor as a character, and is supposed to show how culturally alien (hehe) he is, or Stephen MoffatI’m worried it’s the later, and really hope it’s not going to be an important plot point, because no.
30:35 Rape via mind-control, fun. Just in case we didn’t realize who the bad guys were I guess?
31:13 Silly villain, don’t you know impossible situations are the Doctor’s favorite?
34:05 Oh, fudge. Must say, I like this new coat.
35:44 I take it this is supposed to be the Bond-like bit? Maybe I haven’t seen enough of the movies. Does Bond usually travel by motorbike?
36:30 DO WANT
38:14 There’s the Oncoming Storm we all know and love <3
39:38 What, where are you going? No, go back! That’s not nice!
39:50 UNIT! So good to see you, old friends!
44:07 Those symbols on the new TARDIS are Gallifreyan aren’t they? Wonder what they mean.
44:30 And so it ends. Well, that was much better than I’d feared it would be. Clara continues to be not nearly as annoying as she could be, which sounds like the least complimentary compliment ever, but is actually high praise given the general outline of her character and my expectations. The monster was very cool and there was good set-up for a longer arc. It wasn’t anything fantastic or mind-blowing but a solid B+, maybe even an A-. I’ll definitely be watching next week.
