When the Tardis lands on the bank of the River Thames, there is a metal frame that looks like the internal structure of the upper part of a Dalek's body, where the gun and plunger are mounted. See more »
In this episode Clara doesn't appear to know who the regenerated Doctor is, and thinks he is somebody else entirely. However in Day of The Doctor she met two previous incarnations of the Doctor and seemed to accept the fact that they were all the same person. See more »
I wear a veil to keep from view what many are pleased to call my disfigurement. I do not wear it as a courtesy to such people, but as a judgment on the quality of their hearts.
Are you judging me?
The Doctor regenerated in your presence. The young man disappeared, the veil lifted. He trusted you. Are you judging him?

I like Peter Capaldi; he's a terrific actor and he manages to shine even in this lackluster script from Mr. Moffat. Clara turns in one of her best performances yet. The visual effects are better than ever.
Yet somehow throughout this whole episode I couldn't shake a terrible case of deja vu. It's not that I don't like Moffat's scripts; some of his episodes are really amazing. I just would be very hard pressed to point to any aspect of this episode and say, "that's new," or "that's thought provoking." Still, if this purpose of the episode was to introduce Twelve, then I guess it was decent enough.
I just hope that Moffat and Co. can get their act together to put together some of the best Who ever while they've got the chance with Mr. Capaldi. This kind of run-of-the-mill, rehash writing just won't cut it.
