Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?
I'm surprised at how inactive this thread is right now.
Well, this is kinda off topic, but I have a fan theory. You know how the Doctor runs a lot? It might have been caused by. But that isn't all. I think thathim running from the Untempered Schism.Clara, while being intertwined with his timeline, appeared in the thing and gave him his first RYCBAR. It was her who defined him as a runner
Or, you know, things could be constantly chasing him. It's sort of been a thing throughout the series that the Doctor tends to run, a lot. It's not really something spoilerific. Well, I've been thinking on my own about RYCBAR, and putting it together with the last anagram we had, YANA, and if you combine them, "Run you clever boy and remember, you are not alone." And with the results of the 50th... pretty snazzy eh?
A bit too much comedy (mostly the slaptick) for my liking. The boing sound effect when they did the mind-meld was one thing but then they went on to do the bit when the Doctor was hanging upside down in a tree and then Vastra has that remote car key and that scene where Strax gave Clara the bucket of water to drink. Him calling her "boy" is getting a bit old as well. A lot of it felt like filler.
When I looked back the dinosaur didn't seem like it needed to be there at all except for the spectacle but I suppose there needed to be a high-profile killing for the robots to get the Doctor's attention.
But enough complaining. The rest of the episode was good. It looked at how the Doctor changed and his speech about the Ship of Theseus that was totally not supposed to be a reference to his own regeneration.
At the end when that woman woke up the robot in the promised lands - I'm guessing she's the one who put the ad in the newspaper. Vastra saying "by the goddess" is most likely meant to be her being her, but I'm not dismissing the possibility that the promised land woman is somehow connected to that. (Since she has an umbrella, I'll be calling her Mary Poppins until I find out where her name actually is)
