Trivia

The house where Clara's family lives (staircase can be seen at around 5 mins) is the same house where Rose Tyler lives in Doctor Who: Rose (2005). See more »

Goofs

When a man comes into the tower to tell the Doctor about the arrival of the Daleks, he replies saying: "It's okay Barnable, don't worry. I have got a plan". However, when the man leaves, the Doctor secretly tells Clara: "I haven't got a plan, but people love it when I say that". Since he was still inside the "truth field" that covered the entire town, he shouldn't be capable of lying at all. See more »

Quotes

Clara: You've been asking a question and it is time someone told you, you've been getting it wrong. His name, his name is The Doctor. All the name he needs. Everything you need to know about him and if you love him... and you should, help him. Help him.

Disappointing
20 January 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I was really looking forward to this episode and Matt smith is one of my favorite doctors but this was really disappointing the plot sounded good and simple but in my opinion it was all over the place I was looking forward to the end actually. this episode is one of the worst doctor who episodes ever and such a horrible finale for a epic doctor. Steven Moffat is good but maybe bring back Russell. Steven you're good but you should focus on sherlock series 4 but then russell should focus on his own shows. Neil Cross should be the lead writer but Steven is good at most of his episodes like the 50th anniversary that was excellent but he really lost the ball with this one.3/10
