In Which I Review Doctor Who (10x12)
--"It's hard to say; I'm of two minds but fortunately the other one is unconscious." Michelle Gomez and John Simm have fabulous chemistry and it was a real treat to see these two play off each other.
--However, for the last time Moffat, dick jokes are not funny and are beneath this show.
--"Nothing wrong with being kind. Jelly baby?" Yes, 12. Get your 4 on!
--Is anyone going to go back for Nardole or the ship that is currently teetering on the edge of a black hole? That's a rather big plot thread to leave hanging, no?
--I had thought, some 6 seasons ago now, that the Master was dead and then we have been led to believe that Missy was dead twice over, so I won't say that we won't be seeing Missy again but it sure did look like this was her final hurrah.
--"Is the future going to be all girl?" "We can only hope."
--"I'm not a doctor. I'm The Doctor. The original you might say."
--"I'm not trying to win...I do what I do because it's right, it's decent, and it's kind. Just kind."
