What Did You Think of Face the Raven?

Now that the highly anticipated tenth episode of series 9 has been aired what did you think? Was it everything you had hoped for or not what you expected.

    So sad to see Clara die! I will miss her so much! She was so good!!! But I can’t wait to see who the new companion will be!

    Just another ridiculous fan theory.

    Big Finish is NOT direct series canon and Ashedir is from Earth and not Davros’s Skaro.

    There’s no ‘R’ in Dalek.

    Nail on the head Max, nail on the head. How sad.

    I completely agree! Her death was sad but definitely not scary… You should see the horrible deaths on the Walking Dead, now those are scary!

    Asheidr is not Davros’s mother. His mother is revealed in Big Finish’s 4 part audio drama called ‘I,Davros’ as a woman called Lady Calcula.

    Clara is not Davros’s daughter. Assuming you have seen series 7’s ‘The Ring’s of Akerten’ [or however you spell the blooming thing], Clara’s parents are human, and sadly, Clara’s mum died 10 years ago in the series continuity, leaving only herself and her dad.

    The Clara in Heaven sent is like the other Clara’s that helped the Doctor’s over time. It’s not the real Clara just another splinter.

    I think Asheidr is the mother of Davros and Clara is their daughter.
    Really enjoyed this episode

    Now that the fuss over Clara’s death has subsided (honestly, let it go now). I’d be more concerned with the blurb in Radio Times (other TV listing magazines are available.) which says that Mr Moffat “dares to tamper with Doctor Who lore” in Heaven Sent; personally I’m dreading exactly what it is far more then facing the raven, lol.

    Nah the writer did get it. This lame show is all about cartoon caricature aliens now, so the idea of a Cyberman here makes perfect sense!

    I think something called a Quantum Shade could penetrate a stasis field.

    Because her contract was up…

    Clara needed to die…I thought they handled it rather well. And this has been one of my favorite seasons so far. Clara already did what she was born to do at the end of series seven, so yeah, she was born to save the Doctor. On another note, “Now I’ll never know if I was right.”- Adric.

    yeah same the sontaran 🙂

    Sorry accidently pressed enter hate it when that happens. Anyway the other characters were interesting as well. Rigsby was alright he wasn’t the most interesting character but at least he wasn’t boring, Ashildr is a good character I thought she was annoying at first but she didn’t really mean Clara to get killed so I guess she not annoying really.

    Now to the most important bit to the episode Clara’s death. I agree with a lot of people saying that Clara needed to leave the show by dying because she has left so many times already. Some say the death should been more violent but this doctor who there is a limit to how violent it can get and if it was more violent would of it really made a difference? I thought Clara was a really good companion and I hope the next companion is a good one.

    In conclusion I thought this episode was really good and a good way to for a companion to leave. I think this one will be remembered as “the one were Clara dies” or “the one with the alien village”

    And happy 52th birthday doctor who

    Now that I’m don’t feel depressed now (until I get reminded of Clara’s death in the next episode) I can do proper short review of this episode

    This episode was interesting and sad. The alien town was really good but I would of liked to have seen more aliens which isn’t a bad thing because it shows I was interested. The characters were good the doctor’s new costume looks awesome,

    I did notice he say well another blooper for the Dr Who reel. Lol

    Don’t forget that today is the Doctor’s 52 Birthday.


    November 23rd, 2015 - 5:10pm

    Overreacting, not overrating, sorry all I ment – OVERREACTING.


    November 23rd, 2015 - 5:09pm

    I feel a lot of Doctor Who fan’s are overrating to Clara’s death by saying it was very scary.

    It was NOT scary in the slightest. If I was 4 years old again, I think my 4 year old self would have shed a few tears for Clara, not run away in fear because of smoke coming out of Clara’s mouth.

    You want scary death scenes, then I recommend you watch something like Jaws, Piranha, Dante’s Peak, Alien VS Predator, Tremors, Species, The Thing or even Halloween starring Jamie Lee Curtis, those films will scare you. Clara’s death is nothing compared to the death’s in those aforementioned films.

    Today off course in the Doctor’s universe would have been Clara’s 29th birthday. She died too young 🙁


    November 23rd, 2015 - 5:04pm

    Yeah, noticed that first time around, and again when I watched it yesterday.
