We've had spiritual and we've had political, now it seems the Doctor is heading straight into the spooky, as he and Clara look for ghosts. There's a guest star or two in this one, with the marvellously smooth Dougray Scott and fresh from midwifery Jessica Raine. Neil Cross brought us the Rings of Akhaten and he's back already for another bite of the Doctor Who cherry. The BBC's official blurb: "Something terrifying is hiding in Caliburn House, and the Doctor finds himself part of the ghost hunt."

    Companion/assistant.

    The Doctor's loving the tech too :)

  • Christine20/04/2013 at 17:48

    He loves a good toggle.

  • Christine20/04/2013 at 17:50

    Rain is never a good sign.

    Well that's good to know.

  • Christine20/04/2013 at 17:54

    Yay, a good Doctor Who corridor.

  • Christine20/04/2013 at 17:54

    I am, however, slightly worried about her swooshy hair and that candle.

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 17:54

    That's some good table checking skills

  • Mr C20/04/2013 at 17:55

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 17:56

    quite a bit bit. like indy car car.

    :D

    it all makes sense now.

  • Will^20/04/2013 at 17:57

    is that alan hansen?

    I wonder what his Dr Who punditry is like?

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 17:57

    No.

    *walks off*

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 17:58

    Someone's left the central heating off

    I like a girl that makes lists.

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 18:00

    11th?

    Wonder if there was an 11 reference in the last episode seieng as she mentioned the 11th chapter in episode 1 as well and this is the 11th doctor...

    (also, spinal yap)

  • Will^20/04/2013 at 18:00

    Who knew the doctor enjoyed his analog photography? Lou would be proud

  • Will^20/04/2013 at 18:03

    There may be a slither of ice in his heart, but he does have a spare.

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 18:03

    maybe the finale is going to be the tardis has a fight with clara

  • Christine20/04/2013 at 18:04

    Health and Safety nightmare. There'll be forms for that.

    His super-protecty suit has a lovely bit of webbing and a plastic buckle on the front

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 18:08

    This kind of stuff never happens on a nice sunny day

  • Will^20/04/2013 at 18:09

    She is just in very-very-super-slo mo.

  • Christine20/04/2013 at 18:09

  • Mr C20/04/2013 at 18:15

    at least it's not raining.

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 18:16

    ahhh I'm glad I'm not the only one bad with directions

  • Will^20/04/2013 at 18:16

    How can you misplace an exit?

  • Christine20/04/2013 at 18:16

    ahhh I'm glad I'm not the only one bad with directions

    It's like he parked his car and forgot where.

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 18:16

    How can you misplace an exit?

    Easy to do in a 7 story John Lewis

  • Will^20/04/2013 at 18:17

    Was that a bike-lock?

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 18:17

    Uh ohhhhhhhh.

    Double trouble

  • Christine20/04/2013 at 18:19

    You can't talk to the TARDIS like that.

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 18:19

    You can't talk to the TARDIS like that.

    No wonder she hates Clara!

  • Will^20/04/2013 at 18:22

    Not many seconds once the TARDIS lands

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 18:23

    oh my god

  • Will^20/04/2013 at 18:25

    Does that means she comes from the year 3000?

  • Christine20/04/2013 at 18:25

    But you guessed that already. Orrrrr not.

  • Mr C20/04/2013 at 18:25

    Does that means she comes from the year 3000?

    not much as changed but they live underwater?

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 18:25

    Does that means she comes from the year 3000?

    I wonder if she knows Fry and Leela

    HAH.

    Caarreefulllyyy.

    Ewww

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 18:28

    huh?

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 18:28

    I'm confused, what was that thing?

  • Will^20/04/2013 at 18:28

    Adventure inside the TARDIS?! :D

  • Mr C20/04/2013 at 18:30

    cheers all, that was fun.

  • Christine20/04/2013 at 18:30

    Liked that one, but mad at Clara calling the TARDIS names.

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 18:30

    Is no one else as confused as me about that ending?

    It was really good that episode But I didn't understand the ending

  • Will^20/04/2013 at 18:31

    I think I was ok with it.

  • Christine20/04/2013 at 18:31

    Is no one else as confused as me about that ending?

    Compared to some of the other endings, it seemed okay to me. He went and got the thing so it could be with the other thing in the house.

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 18:31

    Compared to some of the other endings, it seemed okay to me. He went and got the thing so it could be with the other thing in the house.

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!

    Now it makes sense

  • Will^20/04/2013 at 18:31

    ...although he might've been heading to a place other than Earth with them both.

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 18:31

    I forgot about the thing in the house. Multiple dimensions always gets me

  • Christine20/04/2013 at 18:31

    ...although he might've been heading to a place other than Earth with them both.

    Yes, he said he had a place for them.

  • Christine20/04/2013 at 18:32

    I forgot about the thing in the house. Multiple dimensions always gets me

    You're just not thinking fourth dimensionally. I have a real problem with that too :)

  • Lukeh20/04/2013 at 18:32

    Also, is it me or was that episode beautifully shot?

  • Christine20/04/2013 at 18:32

    Also, is it me or was that episode beautifully shot?

    I thought the forest was exquisite. The black hole circle was the only let down really.
