Poll – What Did You Think of Let’s Kill Hitler ?

What Did You Think of Let’s Kill Hitler ?

After the summer break Doctor Who is back on our screens with Let’s Kill Hitler. What did you think -was it one of the best stories yet or just not as good as you had hoped.

    God it’s all got a bit jumbled and confusing, I think it’s time we went back to traditional stories

    • McGann is the Doctor.

      August 30th, 2011 - 5:30pm

      (I know its a bit soon, but) Series 7 is confirmed to be more traditional, it will not have a story-arc as Series 6 currently has. 😯

      Steven Moffat recently said it would be foolish to repeat the same trick twice in a row. ❓ in his own words.

    river carnt kill the doctor as a child because that means she would be in prison when she is mel and river was in the suit in the past and he gets killed in 2011 but she does kill him. but why did river shoot the suit in 2011 if she knows it is her and why kill him when she is older in lets kill hitler when she has killed him i think steven morffet has got a big twist

      Well you were close but just because they know it was her doesn’t mean they caught her straight away. That gives her just enough time to grow up at the same time as her parents.( don’t you just love the fact that you can say stuff like that when talking about doctor who)

    doctor who is getting beter and better this was the best ep to date

    • Iateda

      September 6th, 2011 - 10:37am

      That’s debatable. The second Part not the first. Doctor who does continue to get better in some things but sometimes it slips


    August 28th, 2011 - 10:18pm

    river still could kill the doctor, we don’t know if all that stuff in a her mind has been forgotten. the episode was a bit rushed for my liking, it went a bit too quick for me to get my head round, and there wasn’t a point to it being called lets kill hitler or be set in berlin.

    • Rabid frog

      August 29th, 2011 - 8:48pm

      But river stopped the doctor killing himself when she could’ve let him die


      August 30th, 2011 - 11:05am

      true, but rory did ask if the stuff about killing the doctor was gone, they may be a way she still does kill him, you never know.. mels said when she last regenerated she was in new york, thats where the girl in the spacesuit regenerated, now i am definitely sure river is the girl in the spacesuit!!

    I think that Moffat’s genius writing is indisputable, but he seems to focus on a full series storyline. I sorta miss Russel T, who weaved that storyline into clearly individual stories.

    booboo or anyone else in LKH what does river mean when she says thats magnificant im going to wear lots of jumpers?

    im 13 so if its anything dirty or something lol i don’t mind i just wanna get the joke!

    young rory lol, but when amy asks if rory is gay LOL πŸ™‚ penny drops.


      August 30th, 2011 - 11:06am

      the young rory looked so much younger than amy to me!

    • Iateda

      September 6th, 2011 - 10:39am

      Yeah what is with the disappearing age gap? Perhaps someone did some extra Time traveling.( wonder what they got up to)

    • Amy

      June 24th, 2013 - 12:46pm

      Girls at around that age go through growth spurts before guys, so as children, you often see taller, matured girls and shorter, childish boys πŸ™‚

    August 28th, 2011 - 3:39pm

    oh by the way i forgot to put that i’ve just found the jacket rory was wearing in ‘let’s kill hitler’ and it was in my size πŸ˜€ so i’ve now got rory’s jacket and ten’s red converse

    • dinosaur pancakes

      August 30th, 2011 - 10:29pm

      Where did you find his jacket? I totally loved it.

  • tardistik

    August 28th, 2011 - 3:36pm

    watched the episode thought it was a brilliant secrets episode but there wasn’t much of a scare for the teselecta for me if this was what moffat was aiming for then really good episde but if he wanted an even balance of both secrets and scares didn’t quite get there

  • The Adventure Games

    August 28th, 2011 - 1:32pm

    This Episode was AWESOME! The Cast and Crew were right saying we find a lot more about River Song. Can’t wait until the next episode.

  • Doctor Stu

    August 28th, 2011 - 12:23pm

    Great episode, I was right. River song said that the last time she regenerated she was a little girl in the backstreets of new York. This was the girl in the astronaut suit. River murdered the greatest man she has ever known. The astronaut killed the doctor but river song was the girl in the astronaut suit so this answers this question also ‘mels’ asked the doctor to marry her. Sort of.

    • McGann is The Doctor.

      August 28th, 2011 - 1:30pm

      I could hardly believe how FOOLED I had been, to think that Mels wasn’t Melaine Pond. “It would be too obvious” NOnsense ! πŸ˜€

    • Bigger on the Inside

      August 28th, 2011 - 3:13pm

      its melody pond

    • tardistik

      August 28th, 2011 - 3:32pm

      yeh i thought it was river that was regenerating in day of the moon but moffat knows that a lot of us know so he didn’t make a big deal out of mels’ line when she talked about it

    • fish

      August 28th, 2011 - 8:59pm

      How can River kill the doctor in lets kill hitler, when we’ve already seen her kill him when she was a child in the astronaut suit :/

    • lepter

      August 30th, 2011 - 1:18pm

      we dont know it was river in the astronaut suit. River did say the suit can move itself in day of the astronaut.

    • Iateda

      September 6th, 2011 - 10:44am

      ( in response to the comment about river killing the doctor twice) what you are failing to realize ( does anyone get the reference?) is that at the end of the episode moffat solves any problems when river saves the doctor.( spoilers… Probably should have put that at the begining huh?)

  • Bigger on the Inside

    August 28th, 2011 - 12:12pm

    The fouth dimension for lets kill hitler on the doctor who official site:
    i think this is reffering to NIGHT OF TERRORS

    • McGann is The Doctor.

      August 28th, 2011 - 1:33pm

      What we need is a good monster-romp sort of story. I’m really in the mood for seeing some menace,

      -some Cybermen Dalek kindof threat in the stories, and NIGHT TERRORS is really going to deliver on that desire, I think.

      But that’s not to say “Let’s Kill Hitler” wasn’t great, but I want to be thrilled with some monster-scares now. ❓ !

    the plot twist with river song was clever and at first i thought ‘mels’ was actualy a new charcter they were introducing.
    you can tell from the fast writing stephen moffat wrote it[anyone seen jekyll?]
    brilliant and great fun and river song was great.

  • Boodleoo

    August 28th, 2011 - 11:21am

    I loved the episode but the bit when the doctor was asking what the ultimate question was to judgement bot Amy and she says unknown reminds me a lot of the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy. And as I said in another forum this isn’t a series opener there’s no need for them to introduce the characters again. I loved this episode!!!

    • Mels

      August 28th, 2011 - 12:47pm

      42!!! (I can see that as a Comic Relief skit lol)

      On a serious note… a really good episode! Alex Kingston completely stole the show imo, and I never thought I’d be saying that!

      I don’t know what other people think, but that episode felt very much like a River ‘finale’ to me. Yes, she’ll be in the rest of the series (probably mostly in the finale), but I wonder if she will be appearing less often now? And who knows if she’ll be in series 7 at all. (There’s all that 200 year history (TARDIS notebook) with the Doctor, but I don’t think we’ll see much of that, esp. if it’s the ganger Doctor she’s with in those times).

      Looking forward to the next epidode!

    • Boodleoo

      August 29th, 2011 - 11:10am

      Lol! I agree but we know who river is and there is still some major questions was river in the astronaut when it killed the doctor? How do they de brainwash River? etc…etc..

    • Charlie

      August 31st, 2011 - 10:03am

      I think my godfather is an alien, because he said remember the answer to the meaning of life or THE ULTIMATE QUESTION!!!! is 42 because that’s what it is Hitchhioker’s (oops i splelt that wrong)Guide anyway. He has never seen Doctor Who and he watched that episode with us on the same day?! So in episode 13 the answer will probaly be answered i will discover he is a Silent and will probaly eat me and SILENCE WILL FALL!!!!…. so ummm Yeah

  • Jaketor Who

    August 28th, 2011 - 10:45am

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED IT!!!!! πŸ™‚ the way it was writen the way it was played, and rivers entrance to the episode was amazing. so now we know why river never regenerated in the library, Steven Moffat your a genius. you shall now be called the MOFFINATOR πŸ˜€


    August 28th, 2011 - 9:45am

    so i guess hitler came out the closet

    i loved the eipisode but i think for alot of eople u either love it or hate it . who thinks we should have a lets kill hitler set including the dr in his best suit and sonic cane rory new amy mels river song in nazi outfit and dr with new coat and it could be a wave with one of those jelly fish robot things with each figure

    The title ‘Lets kill Hiter’ was clever…everyone who has a chance to go back in time always state that they would do something good for the world and go back and “kill Hitler” obviously stopping a bad man.

    This is a clever meaning for the plans of the silence who are attempting to kill their ‘Hitler’ who is the Doctor..

    The Actual appearance of Hitler was just another plot twist…

    Loved it…

    Really people moaning about the title and because ‘Ol Adolf’ was in it for 5 minutes should understand a little more…

    • Dark Side of the Moon

      August 28th, 2011 - 7:30am

      THANK YOU!

      I thought I was the only one who understood the meaning of the title πŸ™‚

      Great episod….unless you’re one of these older fans stuck in the past (I’m an older fan that has moved with the times). They prefer to watch DW when Bertie Basset was the monster…I mean…really?

      Stephen Moffat has taken DW to a brand new level. It very very clever writing.

    • booboo

      August 28th, 2011 - 10:04am

      I enjoyed this episode, and the title turned out to be nothing to do with Hitler, just a saying but i’m one of those stuck in the past.

      There are many Classic stories i can watch over and over again but very few new series ones.

    • lepter

      August 28th, 2011 - 4:36pm

      yeah, tom bakers stories were rubbish wernt they…and john pertwees…what were they thinking on having understandable plots and stories that didnt go on for two years?….(hope you detect the sarcasm)

    • Danny

      September 3rd, 2011 - 9:44pm

      People Say The Title shouldn’t have been Let’s Kill Hitler as Hitler wasn’t in it alot, but think about it, Mels, Melody or River, was programmed to kill the Doctor as she was one of the teselecta thingies, and Hitler was a bad man, so obviouslt she would’ve said ‘Let’s Kill Hitler!’

  • Mels

    August 28th, 2011 - 4:04am

    River, stop nicking my names! First you pinch my real neme, then you pinch my nickname. I had it first!

    *Bops River with pillow*

    (Seriously, this is getting weird… although in a good way). πŸ˜€

      Happens to me a lot. Me and friends though of 2 doctors returning in the finale (series 4) and the same thing happened for series 5

  • anthony

    August 27th, 2011 - 11:11pm

    it was the best episode of series 6 and loved it absolutely loved it best episode of the series and next week night terrors looks scary so i might miss it are u booboo and im so gonna rate this as my favriote story so far

  • The 14th Doctor

    August 27th, 2011 - 11:07pm

    One of the best episodes yet. Also I must say the synopsis for the remaining episodes sound really good.

  • daleksean

    August 27th, 2011 - 10:41pm

    im so confused about this episode and whats with the title lets kill hitler he was only in for about 5 mins overall very disapointed with this one

    • oooooood

      August 28th, 2011 - 11:24am

      i agree it was lke seeing the cybermen in ‘a good man goes to war’ for 5 mins.

    • JoeAndTeddy

      August 28th, 2011 - 12:15pm

      I disagree. however, i would have liked to see hitler in the episode a bit more, it was done well though.

    • forever dalek 1323

      August 28th, 2011 - 8:09pm

      when i saw the trailer for a good man goes to war i thought that the cybermen were the main enemy i just hope it is not the same case in this half.

    • Iateda

      September 6th, 2011 - 10:51am

      I think think that the title was more about river!!!!!! Saying let’s kill hitler rather than about them seeing hitler.

  • gary

    August 27th, 2011 - 10:34pm

    This episode was good when we found out about Rver and the regeneration bit but what was the Hitler bit about? Why was it called Let’s Kill Hitler of he made a cameo appearence in it? It could have been called “The Return of Rose, Donna and Martha” as they made as much of an appearence as Adolf did!!

    Overall it was interesting but dissapointing. 5/10

    • dalek eternal

      August 28th, 2011 - 9:37am

      it was only called lets kill hitler because thats what mels says in the bit before opening titles

  • tardis2

  • drwhocbreviews

    August 27th, 2011 - 9:29pm

    wasnt as much as i was thinking it would be … i got it but some things were confusing and it was a bit fast … maybe should have been 10 minutes longer πŸ™ πŸ™‚ but the lack of Hitler was shocking !!!! and something interesting the Doctor starts the episode with the new jacket !!!(((i think hes came from the future n thats how hes got it)))))) :S im confusing myself now!! but anyways gets a 7.5 out of 10!!!
