I was never a fan of cramming ever more weird shit onto earth(england,london),so this falls into my "general annoyance with the new who" category.But I like the new companion,so I dont mind slight contrivances like that.

FTFY :P Although thinking about it, Doctor Who is weirdly fixed in South East England for UK episodes.

Or Cardiff.
Where it's actually filmed.
So sometimes they don't have to pretend Cardiff is anywhere else.

However it's actually posing for Bristol where this has all been set this time.

I was actually thinking it isn't set in Cardiff as much as you'd expect. Also I'm embarrassed for thinking it was a made up university this season

There were the only two cities for a while anyway, then Torchwood laid claim to Cardiff exclusivity rights I presume.

Another pun based episode, it seems to be working.

Quite a depressing economic solution they were proposing there.

That was also the kind of story arc twist I appreciate, although the delivery was a bit Anchorman for my tastes.

I was wondering about the first one! I'd never even thought about the second, but yeah you're right, plot hole!

This was a return to Moffat - it's trying very, very hard to impress you and be smart by being weird. But because we've had a series of standard, very good, very normal episodes, I'm happy enough with it.

I appreciate, for however brief, any version of the Catholic Church in fiction that isn't entirely evil and they got some great lines in. Nothing quite like having the Pope show up in your bedroom during a date.

The Monks are very Silence, Capaldi isn't very good at being blind but I'm glad they've committed and the execution was cool (but very Moffat)

Especially if you are gay.

It was a good episode.But I think that rick sanchez handled such situations a bit better.
