What Did You Think of Sleep No More ?

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

    I think most “found footage” films end on a cliffhanger (which remains unresolved) when the people with the cameras die or the “found footage” ends; it is part of the format. If we don’t get a follow-up or a mention then it is safest to assume that the Doctor deals with this footage at a later point in his life before it can be transmitted and cause harm.

    It’s as if the edit was incomplete, did we actually see the end of the episode? Expected to see ‘to be continued’ at the end. Confused and disappointed.

    Goodness…a lot of negativity here but I thought it was great and loved the ‘Blair Witch-esque’ experimentation for the filming. No beginning credits was odd, and the last scene was pretty scary stuff…..I’m presuming this story will pick up again in an episode or two and maybe Clara will fall victim to the dust that’s in her eyes…..

    He said himself that he had staged it to make the adventure more “exciting” so we would watch to the end and be infected by Morpheus. Some of the footage may have been faked and may not have even happened in the Doctor’s universe, like the footage in The Trial of a Time Lord.

    A good story. I enjoyed it, although for me it wasn’t as scary as it had been promoted to be.

    The problem with the found footage format is that, from my experience, it’s a little bit… marmite. It works on some people and truly terrifies them, but for others it’s just a bit boring. It might depend on the screen you watch it on and the way your own mind works.

    So don’t go judging people who did find it scary, or berating people who complain about it being boring, because to be honest the format is a complete gamble.

    I should have taken the advice at the start of the episode and not watched it. The worst episode of this series so far with a massive plot hole, namely that if Rassmusen himself was made of the dust then why did he need “Patient Zero” inside the pod to spread the infection ?

    Love everything about Doctor Who. Always. But that was absolute PANTS! I hope the master tapes crumble to dust and we never have to see it again! Now I’m off to watch Delta and the Bannermen

    if everyone could call the sand men something different what would it be?

    I was falling asleep watching it. Wish i had painted walls as id have had more fun watching them dry

    Well that was a bit rubbish, wasn’t it?

    Soldiers were bland, and stupid too. You have GUNS! Why don’t you SHOOT THE GUNS! The Sandmen could have been a lot more menacing if they were revealed later. Overall, it was kind of stupid, and didn’t go really go anywhere after 45 minutes. Interesting ideas, but there just wasn’t enough content, so it just felt slow.

    First proper dud of this series. Even the Girl who died/The Woman who lived was better.

    Really… Dust monsters??

    That was an insult to Doctor Who. Total cr*p. And thats a first for me to say about the show. Terrible story, rubbish monster. Its this type of story that is going to end up getting Doctor Who cancelled.

    Roll on next week. And as Mark Gatiss wrote this episode, he should Face the Raven!

    I will third it. Dreadful. The worst of the series by far. Ext weeks looks a bit Harry pottery. 🙁

    Where was all the “terrifying horror” in this episode!? It was set up to be really scary! Felt nothing like Doctor Who! Quite frankly I was bored watching this!!

    that was really disappointing, It was good better than the girl who died, but that is the only episode it was better than. I didn’t like the idea of the story, I didn’t like the beginning, I liked the middle and the ending was really bad. I was really looking forward to this episode and it really did disappoint me.


    November 14th, 2015 - 9:07pm

    really enjoyed it until the end. what was that about?

    It was nice. Nothing spectacular but something different. Also did that robot that asked the guy to sing the song remind anyone else of Glados from Portal?

    Quite a bizarre episode but good never the less.

    I’ll second that.

    It was okay. Nothing special.

    Well Mark Gatiss didn’t disappoint with this scary tale. Quite experimental but did everything it set out to do. Reece Shearsmith was fantastic and that end bit where he fell to dust was particularly horrifying.
