What Did You Think of Journey / Centre of the Tardis?

Doctor Who Journey to the Centre of the Tardis

The Tardis is captured by a spaceship salvage team, sending its systems into meltdown.

As the Doctor introduces himself to the motley crew of galactic rag-and-bone men, he realises Clara is still trapped within his malfunctioning ship, so he persuades his new acquaintances to help find his companion, taking them deep into the heart of his beloved blue box.

But their hopes of a straightforward rescue are dashed when it turns out Clara is not the only one down there. Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman star, with Ashley Walters (Inside Men).

Now that the 5th episode of series 7b has aired in the UK what did you think?, was it the best episode ever or just average.

    i do agree with 47 in some areas, as the reason i liked the 10th doc was because he was serious, nice and had the occasional laugh too. it really annoyed me when the doc was found with a barbie doll. that just struck me as 5 year old girl.

    Another question, who wrote it? Knowing the Doctor, I don’t think he’d would write anything about the Time War since he ended it (well, sorta ended it but the daleks still live).

    I do not think it is that easy to solve.
    Clara in my opinion is the Master, now would that be a plot twist or what. Anyways it is all up to the writers, we will have to wait and see.

    I know, I did mention that when I said –

    ‘The Tardis had a link to the Eye of Harmony in the Cloister Room [The TV Movie]’

    The Rose and Crown is the pub Victorian Clara was working in in ‘The Snowmen’.

    It’s got nothing to do with Rose Tyler, so don’t start thinking it is, it’s just part of the pub’s name that’s all.

    I really hate the word Americanized. It feels like people are assuming all Americans are unintelligent. As an American, I take offense to that. Getting to the point: I’m not sure how you can say Matt Smith doesn’t have great lines. Look at his confrontation with the Atraxi, assaulting a Dalek, Explaining why he doesn’t belong in a trap, his speech at Stonehenge, and this is only in Series 5.

    I believe The Wedding of River Song could be explained with the same Eye of the Storm explanation used in Last of the Time Lords.

    I think Clara’s great so far. I liked her in Asylum of the Daleks and The Snowmen. I wasn’t sure about her in The Bells of St. John, but The Rings of Akhaten quickly changed my mind! I think it’s because I like Clara that I plan on collecting the 3.75 inch figures.

    I agree about The Power of Three, though I thought The Snowmen had a good, strong ending.

    I would argue that as a Christmas *Special* it joins, The Five Doctors, The Movie, Planet of The Dead, The Waters of Mars and the other Christmas episodes (bar Feast of Steven) as Specials. Therefore it is not part of the series and just happens to be in the middle of it!

    I like Clara. She’s interesting and a bit funny in my view.

    I had hoped modern Clara was going to be a lot like her ‘Asylum of the Daleks’ counterpart, being flirty and all that, cos it made her very funny and likeable for me.

    Just ignore the haters. Their fools.


    April 29th, 2013 - 4:50pm

    Anyone else confused about the appearance of the Eye of Harmony appearing in this story ?.

    It just seems odd to see it back cos the Tardis had a link to the Eye of Harmony in the Cloister Room [The TV Movie] with the eye itself under the floor of the Panopticon on Gallifrey [The Deadly Assassin], yet the eye surely should not exist because Gallifrey was destroyed in the Time War, surely therefore the eye was destroyed too, and the Doctor has since been using alternative sources of power, such as the Cardiff rift, to refuel the engines of the Tardis, yet the eye itself is now in the Tardis.

    Maybe he saved it somehow, or his trying to create one in the Tardis and just named it after the original, or to put it simply, the writer of the story did not follow continuity, which has been known to happen at times.
