In Which I Review Doctor Who (8x8)
--Given that addiction was actually brought up this episode, I'm willing to give Moffat the benefit of the doubt that this addictive/abusive relationship is intentional and that Clara's addiction will be paramount in how she gets off the show.
--$50 says that "Gus" has something to do with Missy and that we'll be seeing those victims of the Mummy again. And did anyone else think that the beach was Heaven?
--"Oh. I'm so happy to finally see you. Hello, I'm the Doctor and I'll be your victim tonight. Are you my Mummy?"
--The Doctor offered a man a jelly baby from a cigarette case. Bless.
--On the whole the emotional and thematic moments of this episode were solid, but it was the "science" bit of the plot that was lackluster.
