What Did You Think of Episode 7 Kill The Moon?

In the near future, the Doctor and Clara find themselves on a space shuttle making a suicide mission to the Moon.

Crash-landing on the lunar surface, they find a mining base full of corpses, vicious spider-like creatures poised to attack, and a terrible dilemma.

When Clara turns to the Doctor for help, she gets the shock of her life.

Now that the 7th episode of series 8 has been aired what did you think? Was it everything you had hoped for or not what you expected…

    Peter Capaldi is excellent- the story’s however are so dissapointing. Dr Who seems to be turning into a soap opera. Since when has there ever been swearing and crying at the Dr- It’s supposed be an adventure- A real shame- I’ve been a fan of Dr Who for years but the new writers have really missed the point.

    I’m really really despairing about series 8, now. Peter Capaldi is brilliant – absolutely perfect, but the stories, are really letting him down. its reminding me of Man United under Moyes last year as it is like your favourite team losing at home, week in & out. There needs to be some drastic changes.
    I am a big fan of Clara, but the Danny & Clara relationship is so wooden and unconvincing.
    Kill the Moon was the final nail in the coffin. There have been 2 decent episodes, & this was a bridge too far- being halfway through series 8 as it is.

    Wow, Doctor Who has gotten bad. I have not really enjoyed any episode of series 8 so far, and were are all the aliens!? There’s not been one original monster yet. The teller was kind of rubbish and the episode wasn’t focused on it. And then the other episodes are just filled with robots, ghosts you never actually see, spiders and mummys…

    1. well I imagine that certain alien has a different reproducing cycle than most species

    2. well they use it to catch things like there pray ,in the moon base some of the Russian spacemen were pinned up on the wall by the webs so they just use it to catch things .just like normal spiders but the ones in kill the moon use different ways to kill

    3. he is a new doctor he acts differently to his past incarnations . he handles situation differently

    actually it is only (L + 7) viewing figures that properly count as they show all the veiwing figures e.g. TV ,demand, iplayer

    so 6 million is actually good these days

    Really.This site seems to have stopped publishing the viewing figures but this episode managed only 4.82 million viewers overnight.The Caretakers final result was 6.81 million,making it only the 20th most watched programme of the week.I think potentially Capaldi could be one of the best but it is time to get Moffat out he spends too much time giving interviews telling people how wonderful he is,more like a politician than a showrunner

    This episode was okay, but left a few large holes in the plot.

    1. How did the creature lay another egg after it had just hatched? I can’t think of one creature that can do that.

    2. Webs. Why do the spider things create webs, what is the purpose of them other than make the atmosphere creepy.

    3. The Doctor completely leaving. I cannot remember one episode that the Doctor left completely and left us to our own devices, it isn’t exactly in his persona or personality to leave humans alone for big decisions.

    This is what I think kinda went wrong in the episode, hopefully this won’t sound too rude.

    It always takes a little time to accept a new doctor and let go of mourning the last – but in this episode I’ve let go of Matt Smith’s doctor and opened the door to Peter Capaldi’s – he’s found his feet – and Clara, as always, is just brilliant. Beautiful and emotionally complex episode.

    Answers to such questions are not always necessary, and would require too much exposition, which would both bog down the episode and not fit within the allotted time for the show. Simply because not every question is answered, or even that many questions go unanswered, should not automatically make everyone scream plot hole. Some details are simply not important to the story the author is attempting to tell. On another note, I would say that the stories this season have been much better tailored to fit the ~45 minute time slot.

    There is and has always been a prerequisite willing suspension of disbelief when watching any science fiction program. If you want to attack scientific flaws, what about the Quarks recharging by waving their arms(which exerts their own energy), or the inconsistent application of the Blinovitch Limitation effect? What on earth does “Reverse the Polarity of the Neutron flow” mean? We love the show in spite of and because of such things.

    My first thought on the whole moon/egg story was that it would end up being the star whale from series 5 that saved Britain… Sort of humanity saved the creature so the creature could save humanity loop!

    Sorry, but Gattis was responsible for the Robots of Sherwood episode. 🙁 That isn’t much of a recommendation.
