Storyline

The Doctor and Clara find themselves aboard a space freighter that has taken the TARDIS on-board as salvage. While the Doctor is ejected, Clara finds herself wandering through the vehicle exploring it's many - seemingly infinite - rooms. The Doctor re-enters the TARDIS accompanied by three workers from the salvage ship and they have but 30 minutes to find her. There are creatures in the depths of the TARDIS and the time travel machine will do whatever it takes to protect itself. There is a rupture in time however and the TARDIS is leaking recent history....which the Doctor can use to rectify their current predicament. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Clara's hand is burned in the shape of letters. Because we can see in another shot that the letters were etched into the metal, this means that when she picked up the remote, somehow she was only burned where she was NOT touching the metal. See more »

Clara: I always feel so safe after we've spoken.
The Doctor: Marvelous. Keep this door shut.

Oh what a great show this could have been, except it was an episode short!
27 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

Oh what a great show this could have been, except it was an episode short! The new format of one storyline to an episode is IMHO destructive to character development and ultimately to Dr Who. When capable, intelligent actors are turned into shadow puppets with no substance then interest can but wane.

Quite a few holes in the plot and continuity. Like when the youngest brother gets a pole right through his shoulder and he then picks a fight with his brother when freed only to remember he is hurt after the fact (no blood and no hole). Also if the engine was based on a nuclear rod principle then he'd have been melted anyway.

Dr Who has got a lot to offer but not as a fast food meal with no substance and not as a science fiction show without the basic science included. If these flaws were a one offs in a good season I'd forgive and forget but as the whole season has been flawed I think the buck stops with Stephen Moffat. Come back Russell T. we never had to forgive you anything.

On the plus side some good acting by Matt and Jenna-Louise. Poor Jenna hasn't been treated very well up to now with her character reverting from cool, assertive adult to a silhouette of a 14 year old looking for the Dr's approval. Not her fault just poor scripts. Lets hope this episode is indicative of the old Clara's return.
