Storyline

Still in 1969, the Doctor has come to the conclusion that the alien creatures are only seen when they directly look at them. As soon as you look away, any memory of their presence is wiped clean. The aliens are also able to leave suggestions in people's minds, and aren't invaders per se, but have been on Earth for a very long time. While the Doctor works to ensure the success of Apollo 11, the others try to solve the mystery of the little girl in the space suit. Written by garykmcd, zabet

Trivia

There were originally two running gags - the Doctor insisting on keeping his beard, and River refusing to remove his handcuffs. These eventually dovetailed when River advanced upon the restrained Doctor with a shaving razor in hand. See more »

Goofs

When the Doctor is confronting the Silence at the moment Neil Armstrong sets foot on the moon, one can hear the words "You got a bunch of people about to turn blue..." spoken by one of the NASA ground controllers (CAPCOM). This was actually said several hours earlier, when the lunar lander touched down on the moon. See more »

too clever by half
30 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Hi Mr Moffat, I really like your work, but please - my brain hurts. Can the next episode just show the Doctor running away from some Zygons in a quarry on Southern England.

There is a fine line between complicated ( which is OK, there is enough dumbed down TV on the other side ) and downright confusing.

Your enjoyment is tempered when you have to pause and rewind BBC iPlayer every 10 minutes.

EFFECTS - great, ACTORS - brilliant, SETS - didn't wobble, ALIENS - not blokes in rubber suits.

PLOT - can you just run that past me again, and can I have a pad and pen to make notes ? I am sure it will all be explained and all fit together later.

I feel dizzy - anyone got a jellybaby ?
