    I think this one's particularly well-written. My favorite so far. 🙂

    hmmm something not quite right here

    Jack Graham at the top of stairs, his head slowly turns an unnatural 180 degrees to reveal….

    No but seriously very good

    This episode compared to most Moffat episodes was basically glossy and harmless. It might've have helped if Kizlet worked for a real business, a company. Whereas she just seemed to run some kind of shadowy operation with lots of computers like in a thousand other cult programmes. At least she had a clear motive unlike that Madame eye-patch nonsense in 2011.

    The stuff with the Doctor putting Clara to bed with some biscuits was…problematic, Despite the music telling me how sweet this was

    The worst part for me though was the smug cynical throwaway "gag" that the London riots were caused by the aliens. And that is probably the most Moffat has directly engaged with contemporary Britain since he became show-runner. Summed up his point of view for me

    Yes, I hated the riots gag. And the woman gag earlier in the episode.
