What Did You Think of Nightmare in Silver?

What Did You Think of Nightmare in Silver?

Hedgewick’s World of Wonders was once the greatest theme park in the galaxy, but it’s now the dilapidated home to a shabby showman, a chess-playing dwarf and a dysfunctional army platoon.

When the Doctor, Clara, Artie and Angie arrive, the last thing they expect is the re-emergence of one of the Doctor’s oldest foes. The Cybermen are back

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

    I agree with MCA. I think he’s a good actor but his attempts to play an evil version of the character in Nightmare in Silver failed.

    I am afraid you are wrong

    Matt smith is one of the best actors who ever lived in every episode he played the doctor , he gave a ground breaking performance and in nightmare in silver he gave another amazing performance and I would like to see you try to do what he dose

    And if he was a terrible actor then why would he get countless awards

    So you are wrong 🙂

    Nightmare in Silver is the best example that Matt Smith is a TERRIBLE actor. Many actors have done an “evil twin” version of a character they play, and Smith’s attempt at such is so unbelievably bad it’s cringe-worthy. While possessed by the Cyberman programming the Doctor appears neither different nor evil, despite Smith obviously trying to be so.

    I agree that it’s gone uphill, but I don’t blame David Tennant, I blame Russel T Davies. I always felt his finales went downhill after Series 3, the quality of the episodes after Series 1, and out of his companions I only really liked Martha and maybe Captain Jack. Steven Moffat wrote most of my favorites from the RTD era, and his Asylum of the Daleks, The Name of the Doctor, The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances, and The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang are among my all-time favorites.

    I must say, the episode was good. They could have just got a lot more out of it. The cry for a two-parter is a wise one. Which episodes of New Who stand out the most in your mind? The Stolen Earth? The Parting of the Ways? The Age of Steel? The Empty Child? What do these have in common? They are 2-parters. And that adds a little something which makes a big episode into a grand one. And that is what the Cybermen needed to make their grand return.

    I heard that in terms of the origins of the Cybermen, the Cybus Cybermen and the Mondas Cybermen encountered each other and upgraded themselves into each other, hence where the mixture of the two comes from.

    It was a fantastic episode but I have to agree the kids were lame. Everything else was terrific. Also the cybermen’s new heads look a lot like the Tomb of the Cybermen, which I found particularly odd.

    The new cybermen s head looks werid anybody who agrees respond


    May 20th, 2013 - 7:46pm

    I jumped of the sofa when that head attacked Amy


    May 20th, 2013 - 7:41pm

    David Tennant was the best doctor ever


    May 20th, 2013 - 7:40pm

    What if the daleks and cybermen teamed up that would be epic


    May 20th, 2013 - 7:38pm

    I agree with you Dalek sec and I thought you were exterminated


    May 20th, 2013 - 7:35pm

    Bring back Russell t Davies
