    Really looking forward to this. So far, this series has been the best yet.
    Also, can Jamie Mathieson do wrong? I don’t think so.

    A very good question…

    Also, I’m not sure if the name “Mire” suits killer robots from the future…

    You know Moffat… he hasn’t got a plan yet. But he will have. And it will be spectacular.

    “a single Viking girl?” – That’ll be Maisie Williams’ character, then.

    Reminds me of ‘The Time Warrior’.

    Not sure what to make of it, but it is nice to see a return to a more historical setting.
