Season 9
« on: November 18, 2015, 09:53:01 PM »
What does everyone think so far?


To me this season has been very strong so far, although that last episode (Sleep No More) was weak (stupid monsters, was just boring really). All of the two parters have been good or better so far, I have high hopes that this will be a pretty stellar season.

Meh have yet to watch beyond the first couple episodes, which were rather weak imo. Only good thing about it was when he called Davros a moron.

Not that I've given up on it. I'll get round to watching the rest of it. It's just not nearly as good as it once was. Back then I never missed an ep when it was on TV.

Yeah, I very nearly gave up after the tragedy that was last season, but this one has been pretty good in my opinion. It's certainly not as good as it was a few years ago.

Sleep No More was poor, the lake ones I quite liked, the Maisie Williams ones were fun, the Zygon episodes were fantastically good. Capaldi going full shouty angry at the end of Zygon inversion is a brilliant scene.

The lake ones were good, but the resolution felt to easy. Capaldi's speech at the end of Zygon Inversion gave me chills, I feel like that will be his defining scene.

Which leads to the interesting question, what were the defining scenes for the other 12? I might make a new thread for that...

Finally getting round to seeing 9. Got pretty much the same opinion as y'all; better than season 8, etc.

Edit: Sleep No More was pretty dumb, apparently they were carrying around big fancy flashlights and not portugaling machine guns.

Sleep No More was terrible, but I'd say it was the only really terrible episode of the season, and Heaven Sent and The Zygon Inversion were both fantastic IMO. Hell Bent I felt had some real missed opportunities which was a shame, I wanted a lot more Gallifrey in it.

Heaven Sent may well be the best episode of the season, it was really incredible. Hell Bent on the other hand was a huge disappointment. They should have left Clara dead and made it a Time Lord victorious kind of thing.
