One thing I really like about Danny, is that they aren’t going the clueless boyfriend route with him. He’s not stupid. Far from it. And the story constantly reminds us the audience and Clara too that he isn’t, and that she can’t just fool him.
Doesn’t mean she doesn’t try though. Haha…a play. That’s it. Clara has completely cracked. Her Doctor-life and real-life have come crashing together and it probably isn’t going to be pretty.
Danny’s look of anger….awesome.
The Doctor just sitting there and tinkering…awesome.
So did they really beat the bad guy and we have 20 minutes left in the episode? They can’t have won that easily. Are we going to get 20 minutes of Doctor meet Danny, Danny meet the Doctor? Please?
Nice pissed off rant by the Doctor though. He really likes to go off doesn’t he?
And this is where Danny starts to comprehend that the universe isn’t as confined and defined as he once thought it was.
No Doctor…no boyfriend. Girls night in! Pizza and wine and a cheesy movie…and. Nah, don’t think Clara would be in to that.
Hahaha…what a great way to show the Doctor running without showing the Doctor running. Because we all know the Twelfth Doctor isn’t the greatest runner. I still love him to pieces, even his awkward run.
That is another great creature design. Again. This show has just stepped it up this season.
An invisibility watch! That’s great. Can I have please? I have some trouble to cause.
Though I’m with Clara. Not sure bringing the Blitzer back to the school is a great idea. But it is a clever idea to create a vortex and suck it a billion years into the future. And let the humans in a billion years deal with it.
Oooooo! The inevitable boyfriend talk. Except the Doctor thinks it’s the dashing young time traveller lookalike and not Danny. And of course Clara wants to know that the Doctor in some way approves. And it’s not because she needs his approval, far from it. But she wants to know that her best friend likes her boyfriend because people actually care about this sort of thing! You want the people in your life to get along! I know I do. I know most others do too! It’s important!!
Clara you are quickly becoming my favourite companion. Asking the Doctor if the other companions let you get away with this kind of stuff. I love how you are not afraid to call him out when he deserves it.
And I’m loving all these acknowledgments to the Doctor’s past adventures and companions and lives!! I thought it was something that hasn’t been done that well in the past and having it now just…it makes me feel like the universe that this show is in is a complex and real one. I hate the idea of a reset button, where nothing that the characters did or experienced matters because it is never alluded to again. This is a great direction for the show and I’m so happy.
Hello random alien robot thing stuck on Earth and ready to destroy it!
Q:Ozzie = Clara Oswald. Squaddie = soldier. So, it means "Clara loves Danny."
Thanks to you too!!
Q:Ozzie = Oswald Squaddie = Soldier
Now this should be interesting. The school troublemaker meets the ultimate universal troublemaker.
Love the sign. Way to stay in deep cover mode there Doctor.
So many good witty comments here. It’s pretty much blink and you miss it. Like “Don’t you have shoplifting to go to?” Ahhh…it’s like all the writers decided to bring up their game. Or maybe it’s the Moffat co-writing credits. The writing just seems much more tighter than before. I like it.
Why do I think Courtney and the Doctor will be kindred spirits. She seems like his type, despite his caustic remarks. She’s smart, asks the right questions, and can’t really pass things over her head. Plus she has just as much as a smartass attitude as he does.
