Temporal error by the Doctor?
18 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While I enjoy most of the Doctor Who episodes, I had two problems with this one. First, as I understood it, the Doctor had promised to return Clara to the home where she watched the family friend's children at a point where her absence wouldn't be perceived by them. Why, then, would they do a search for Clara on the internet and find all that "incriminating" time travel evidence and in such a short time (relative to their sense of time)? Additionally, if the Doctor chose to take them to the most amazing theme park in the galaxy, WHY would he take them to the point in time when it is a no longer operational, dilapidated theme park. One would think, IF he wanted them to have a fun, non-threatening time, he would have taken them to opening day or - if they wanted to avoid the crowds - a year or two before it shut down. Other than those things, I enjoyed it. :-D
