I thought yesterday's episode was better plot-wise, but I sat down for a horror episode like Blink and I got a love story on all sides. That was a bit... odd. Still, perhaps we're now going to get into the flow of things. It's not going to be my favourite ep though.

Some people thought it the best yet but on the whole from what I have read it got the thumbs down. Also I don't think they are making the most of Clara's character. It isn't her fault but she looks spare for much of the time.
OK, just watched "Journey to the centre of the TARDIS".
Clara was OK in this, Bill. I just think she was on her own most of the time so didn't get to talk much ... except to herself ... and the tardis ... (Her dress was a bit odd Marit - not quite like her regular style but who am I to judge.) I think the sun-engine didn't so much "incinerate" as, in the Doctor's words "liquefy all the cells in your body" ... but how THAT becomes zombie, rather than a puddle of liquid mess, is indeed unclear. The way they were introduced was really good though. For a while I was thinking ubervamps (from Buffy).
Loved the library and the machine-growing egg tree.
The theme of a time rift and all the echoes was quite a good one, but the "just press reset" resolution was a bit of a copout.
