This episode was pure torture. I feel like I’ve just been waterboarded in Guantanamo.
The dialogue was slow and/or awkward.
The plot did not move along and when it did, it was at a snail’s pace.
Does anyone actually care if the Doctor pushed him off ? No, because we know the writers are pulling a fast one that will be revealed in another episode! (ha! Do you see what I did there Moffat? in anticipation of your cleverness, I forgot to give a shit).
And I was unimpressed by capaldi’s slow “getting used to this new body”
Don’t get me started on that stupid matt smith phone call. What the fuck was that, Moffat? You don’t need to pander to the female fans who are boo-hooing at the fact that Capaldi is an older doctor. You don’t need to assuage their fears and deliver poor writing.
