What Did You Think of The Doctor Who Episode Cold War?

What Did You Think of Doctor Who – Cold War?

The Doctor and Clara land on a damaged Russian Submarine in 1983 as it spirals out of control into the ocean depths.

An alien creature is loose on board, having escaped from a block of Arctic ice. With tempers flaring and a cargo of nuclear weapons on board, it’s not just the crew but the whole of humanity at stake!

Now that the 3rd episode of series 7b has aired in the UK what did you think?, was it the best episode ever or just average.

    I didn’t like this episode at all, it moved way too fast at the beginning, it didn’t cut it for a Gatiss episode (we’re skipping the Daleks one) And then the ending was dreadful, what even happened? The Ice Warrior went back up onto it’s ship, and then that guy sang ‘Hungry Like The Wolf’ and it decided not to bomb Earth? What? And then they just went home?

    this episode was amazing. i’m sssssssspech lesssssss. great to see the ice warrior out of its armour. i thought it would have something to do with the great intelligence (like an allience). but never mind. i always love it when mark gatiss writes. he’s a great actor aswell.

    That’s the only episode this year that I have felt satisfied after watching. It was amazing. Before now, I shuddered at the thought of Mark possibly becoming the showrunner, but now I’m convinced.

    I think this must be the best ep of the series! Also now i know why they didn’t redesign them too much… Because they made the outside shell Ice warrior! (saw face) πŸ™‚

    That was absolutely fantastic. Skaldak (not sure on spelling) was scary and David Warner was great. Best episode in series 7 so far.

    anyone else notice the slight theme tweak at the end of the title sequence?


    April 13th, 2013 - 6:59pm

    not that I am complaining but hide looks way way better but this was still good

    Brilliant. I’m so glad we had a happy ending and pleased the Ice Warrior wasn’t killed.

    brilliant episode loved that we got to see an actual ice warrior and I liked how the ice warrior grabbed the victims head it was also a rather funny episode it was very good

    I loved this episode. It was an brillient reintrduction to the ice warriors. It was dark, tense with lovely continuaty nods and for once a death toll. I loved it

    10/10 Mark Gaties is clearly a better writer than Stevan Moffat πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    I was honestly quite dissapointed by the fact he took off his helmet. Mainly because he looked like something out of Monsters Inc.

    He was well funny!

    Why are monster designs always too good to be true? Here we had the perfect design for a 21st century Ice Warrior, and they have to strip it of its armour. I really didn’t see the need. It also would have been better if they kept what was under the armour a mystery, like they had done right up until the end. Not happy.
