    I finally got round to watching the second episode. My general thoughts on the episode are as follows:

    Season 7 / Episode 2

    - I enjoyed it...somewhat. I give this a 6/10. It's a 'decent' storyline against a 'decent' backdrop. The antagonist of the story is slightly lackluster. The Doctor's performance in this episode I also found slightly below his stunning standard, though still acceptable. I guess the subtext about the episode being an examination of religion is good, albeit executed slightly poorly in the episode. It's decent, as a standalone episode, but it's lacking something.

    - I do like how heartfelt the story is though. While many hated the singing aspect, I quite liked it. It gave a sense of community spirit. Often there's a conflict between races (see Cold Blood for a prime example) but in this one all the different races blend together well. I did like that aspect; were it not for that, this episode would be a very mediocre 5/10. The doctor's speech was quite nice as well; particularly Clara's intervention with the leaf. Nice.

    - I'm getting annoyed at the use of the Sonic Screwdriver. It's a very obvious deus ex machina. "Hmm, unpassable door? Use the screwdriver!" "The Vigil firing forcefields at me? Use the screwdriver!" It's abit of a bore sometimes. I don't mind the odd use of the screwdriver, but it gets abit much when every small problem is solved through it's use.

    - The mind parasite (planet) is too similar to the Great Intelligence. It gets a pass in my view, but hardly original.


    And now the mysteries section:

    Season 7 : Formy's mysteries

    - Could be nothing, but I do wonder why Clara's mother died. It is probably nothing and she died just because, but this is Doctor Who. There's generally a reason behind most things.

    - We of course still have the mystery of Clara. No new plot developments on that front, to be honest. It's a standalone episode: you rarely get any developments of the overarching story in these.


    And NOW I see why everyone is shouting Davos Seaworth. Brilliant. Can't wait for his performance. I love ol' Davos. And what a surprise, he's in a nautical role again!

    The mystery of Season 7 / Episode 2 SpoilerClara's mother's death is one of my mysteries too. It wasn't explained in any way whatsoever. It could be nothing, or it could be a deliberate mystery on the part of the producers. Hmmm...


    Ser Davos Seaworth tomorrow! Guys, I'm expecting gifs aplenty for his performance.

    Especially if it's Moffat in charge of this show. XD

    I really enjoyed that episode. A great and unique setting and all round goodness. There wasn't much witty banter or zany hilarity like there usually is and I usually enjoy, but it did quite well without it.

    I didn't think I'd like this episode much, and I really enjoyed it a lot! It was probably the scariest DW episode I've ever seen.

    Reeeeeally excited for next week's episode.

    I wouldn't exactly describe this episode as scary (especially when episodes like "Blink" and "Midnight" exist in the same continuity), but it was pretty damn good.
