What Did You Think of The Crimson Horror?

What Did You Think of The Crimson Horror?

There’s something very odd about Mrs Gillyflower’s Sweetville mill, with its perfectly clean streets and beautiful people.

There’s something even stranger about the bodies washing up in the river, all bright red and waxy. When the Doctor and Clara go missing, it’s up to Vastra, Jenny and Strax to rescue them before they too fall victim to the Crimson Horror!”

Now that the 6th episode of series 7b has aired in the UK what did you think?, was it the best episode ever or just average.

    Absolutely worst episode ever!

    No! Heh! Heh! Just kidding! It was brilliant. The Paternoster Gang were great too. Jenny is hot. Fantastic episode, as seems to be the norm this series.

    No, I’m not really a trollish dork as I’m neither disgruntled with life nor do I hate myself. I love Doctor Who, it’s fantastic.

    A good name would be ‘The Lizard Woman, the Troll and the Parlour Maid’ which they used on the cover of the ‘Devil in the Smoke’ e-book.

    Loved this episode and its Sherlock Holmes feel. What this episode really showed was that a spin off with Vastra, Jenny and Strax would be a GREAT substitute for SJA! Anyone else agree?

    I agree! It would be amazing! Strax is the clumsy one, Vastra is the quite-serious one, Jenny is the feisty one.. they should definitely make a spin-off! It should be called The Paternoster Row Gang or something, it would be brilliant! But I hope it won’t be horror like Torchwood.

    YES! YES GATISS YOU DID IT! Best of series 7 part 2, with in depth characters and well thought out story to make you squirm. i didn’t miss the doctor and the way the vastra, strax and jenny’s character’s developed was great. mrs gillyflower was a strong and fantastic villain, filled with pure evil. i wasn’t expect that to be the doctor, it was a great shock! ada was the soft touch in the story, to make the viewer feel a mix of sympathy for her, and hatred for gillyflower. well done! it was amazing!

    Also, happy birthday dale eternal!

    Thought it was absolutely a brilliant episode, no doubt about it! The scenes with The Doctor and Clara were good because it emphasised what was going on before The Doctor was infected with The Crimson Horror 🙂 I’d give it a 10/10 definitely!!

    I liked the ending but the episode was abit stupid in places like the blind girl kept going to her mum knowing she had blinded her also they didn’t say much about Clara just saying no I didn’t seemed like there was no point

    Great episode! Didn’t think it was that doctor lite. Those scenes with the doctor are quite disturbing! I also thought Mr sweet was the kandy man at first!
