the current Doctor and Clara have a toxic relationship that is not fun to watch.
You know, I love Doctor Who and I liked Season 8 and I apologize for it frequently, if for no other reason than Peter Capaldi is amazing.  But I really have to agree with the above.  Well said.

My biggest (and perhaps, only) real problem with Season 8 is Orson Pink.  They better address that in the next series.

Considering the state of the character, I think they have.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Lard was probably thinking of Danny Pink.
It really isn't that hard to explain Orson considering the time traveling nature of the show. Clara goes back in time, runs into Danny... The rest writes itself.

Yeeeeess!  The opening two-parter was actually quite good!  Missy was a lot of fun, and the whole Clara-as-a-Dahlek thing was not only a great call-back, but a really really really interesting and thought-provoking bit of storytelling as far as Doctor Who lore is concerned.

Although, of course, it did the whole "make up new lore, use said made-up new lore as the solution the hero uses to win" thing.

This season is 3/3 so far.

Really good writing overall and a great mystery this week.

I really like the more subdued tone of Capaldi's Doctor.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Nothing yet, I'm guessing it'll be revealed next episode.

They're a pretty good monster-of-the-week, legitimately creepy (despite the simple prosthetic/makeup to make it happen).

Great episodes so far, and I'm an outlier but I kinda like the more rickety relationship between Clara and Capaldi's Doctor.  It's kinda fun when they're not always agreeing.

So the ghost one is a two-parter?

From what I've read, the whole season is two parters.

Makes sense, from looking at the episode titles. 

Wife and I aren't big on "the occult" so we tend to skip episodes that involve hauntings, witches, werewolves and that sort of thing.  So... the ghost one being a two-parter is a bummer, but they usually only delve into the occult once a season.  I don't think they did at all in Season 8, iirc.

So... The Girl Who Died...

So much for all the "WHO IS MAISIE WILLIAMS?" fan theories out there, eh?

So both those episodes with penis aliens were pretty awful.... the Doctor's war speech, however.... fuck.  They should play that scene if any country ever gets any ideas.
