OK here’s the deal. I am going to allow for speculation about “the Doctor Falls” but no spoilers please. We can talk about any and all Doctor Who episodes up to this one but not beyond. I am putting my spoilers and speculation behind a cut. But I am warning those who have not seen the episode and want to keep spoiler free, stay out of the comments and above the cut.
Oh Moffat, what have you done? I know you are leaving the show. But did you have to do it by stomping hard on all our hearts?
This season has been one of the best in New Who. It has been sharp and witty. Pearl Mackie as Bill is rapidly becoming one of my favorite companions. Capaldi has become my favorite Doctor. The missteps, for me, have been few and even those contained gems.
I really feel that Capaldi has finally come into his own as the Doctor and it is at his exit, which stinks.
I think some people forget that even in Classic Who, there are times that the Doctor’s hubris gets people hurt especially when he thinks he is in total control and then he has to figure a way out of the mess that he practically manufactured.
This time his trying to do ‘good’ leads to a lot of bad and I am hoping by the end of the next episode, the bad has been sorted out because if not, it is going to be a bad note to a splendid season.
The acting was solid all the way around. Michelle Gomez is my vote for the next Doctor because she would be splendid in the role.
I am sad that this is the penultimate episode to this season.( Wait_For_Me )
