    I am totally cracking up. When I met you guys and you told me about the podcast, you warned me about the penchant for tangents. Now you’re spending several minutes debating what makes an insect. A sea-going insect, no less. Love it.

  • To address the disappearing cable. Its obvious that the TARDIS had a firmware update during the episode and was able to go wireless.

    As far as I’m concerned this was the best episode of the series so far. At the end I was left thinking “now that’s how you do an episode of Doctor Who”. Matt Smith was amazing.

    I also think the character of Alec and Emma (memory is terrible so I may have them totally wrong) would make for a good spin off. Certainly better than John Barrowmans idea of a Captain Jack/River Song spin off – the campness would hit critical levels.

    The other thing that struck me during the episode was that the Doctor doesn’t need Clara. I don’t know if its because Matt Smith can carry the show so well, or it is the way Clara’s character is written. I just remember thinking he didn’t need her. If the companion is the voice of the audience, then she wasn’t needed here. The Doctor showing fear was a good reflection of how the audience should feel. Also him not knowing exactly what was going on was something the companion should be there for.
