What Did You Think of Forest Of The Night?

One morning, in every city and town in the world, the human race wakes up to face the most surprising invasion yet.

    Colin the 3rd, the only good episodes in this series are:

    1. Flatline.
    2. Mummy on the Orient Express.
    3. Robot of Sherwood.

    If you can tell me where the other good stories are, please tell me. My grandad has been watching the show since it began, and even he has said to me that its boring and it just doesnt feel like Doctor Who anymore.

    How has this series been for 6 year olds? It’s had some of the most horrific and grown up things in modern Doctor Who ever!
    The finale is all about death! That’s not 6 year old appropriate.

    CJ, not being funny, but this series is the worstest one so far. The writing is terrible, the acting is wooden, Peter Capaldi just does NOT do justice as the Doctor and even the elder viewers have said that this series is terrible.

    Bad episode fits well with a bad terrible season and for a lot of reasons.

    1. Making it a kids show for only 6 year olds.
    2. Losing its broader fan base
    3. Losing DVD sales, I certainly won’t buy this.

    This whole series has been terribly let down by Steven Moffat. and someone needs to let him know that dr who is a family show that should appeal to all age brackets, not just 6 year olds.

    Needs someone new at the helm. make it gutsy Sci Fi and bring it back on track

    Clue 1. news monsters, inovative
    Clue 2. Retire cybermen and Daleks
    Clue 3. Give the doctor empathy and a heroic side other than psychopathic.
    Clue 4. Better writing
    Clue 5. STOP DUMBING IT DOWN

    A junior script writing class could do better

    There was plenty to enjoy from the episode but it was probably the weakest so far. Next weeks looks phenomenal!!!!. I’m not buying into the fact clara has turned bad though! i’m thinking either a clone to which our clara would still be alive or she’s just simply under influence from a greater power using her to do their bidding.

    Thought it was OK once (cant expect EVERY episode in what I think has otherwise been a very strong series 8 to be as good as what I think one like “Flatline” was) we got finally to what was really supposed to be going on.

    Hoping for a strong rounding off for the series with the “Dark Water/Death In Heaven” finale of course.

    Well I don’t think In the Forest of the Night was a disgrace to be called a Doctor Who episode and Most of Series 8 has been excellent! Also why change the writer? Yeah I know RTD is a better writer and everything but Steven Moffat is good, no need to change writers and there certainly no need to bring back David or Matt because Capaldi does a fantastic job as the Doctor just like them! Plus, I like to think that the Doctor finds out why he looks like Caecillius at the end of his era or something.

    It may have been intentional as i swear on 2-3 seperate occasions words were mispronounced for whatever reason, i’m sure i heard clara saying obducted instead of abducted at one point.

    well now that was surprising

    I love suprises

    Any episode with ‘selfie’ in it isn’t a good one. Kids seem to always be very stereotyped in Doctor Who and this wasn’t really an exception.
    the 20 second teaser overshadowed the actual story to be honest.
    It still looked magnificent but should Nelson’s Column have been a little dirtier? 😆

    the girl who played mave kept on saying ‘fort’ instead of ‘thought’

    The episode was passable as entertainment and for the most part the production values were high.

    Great Episode, cannot wait til next week!

    The Silent Silent, i couldnt agree more with you. Peter’s Doctor is worse with the attitude problem than Hartnell was.

  • booboo

    October 25th, 2014 - 9:19pm

    probably my least favourite of the series to be honest

    some good effects and settings

  • 76 Totters Lane

    I agree. Next week looks fabulous!

  • the astronaut of death

    October 25th, 2014 - 9:17pm

    over all I liked it not my favourite of the series

    but it was alright

    did you like it booboo?

    At it’s best it was average.
    At it’s worst it made me want to smash my head against a wall.

    In the forest of the night was a disgrace to even be called a dr who episode! Most of series 8 has been c*ap! The best episodes, from the look of the trailer. Seems to be the finale. and what happened to finding out why the Doctor looks like Caecillius?!?!?!?!

  • Dalek Supreme

    October 25th, 2014 - 9:12pm

    A valiant effort, but kinda bad.
    Nice CGI and sets and all that, and an interesting idea. Danny Pink, your real name has been earned, you weren’t bad at all this episode. Kids, kinda annoying but not too bad, each one felt different. Clara still seems dreadfully uninformed as a companion. One minute it’s ‘Oh me and the Doctor are tight,I know exactly what he’s like’, and the nest it’s ‘Oh wait no I don’t, he’s so unpredictable!’

    Not bad, but as a story, it doesn’t work really. The central idea is nice and new, but the little threads holding it togther are rubbish. Where was the entire population of London at the time? Didn’t those parents watch the news? Gah, gaping plot holes everywhere.

    Next week looks awesome! Nice to the Iron Men- Sorry, Cyber Men-back again.

  • RORY DOCTOR RIVER POND

    October 25th, 2014 - 9:09pm

    worst episode ever. there was no storyline, children were portrayed badly again, i thought danny would get more angry due to clara’s lies, and it was an absolute waste of time

  • timelord327

    October 25th, 2014 - 9:08pm

    I quite liked it actually even if it had some terrible moments in it it was a good idea and story overall (in my opinion of course) Next time looks greeet!

    Quite an enjoyable episode.

    ONE OF THE WORST EVER EPISODES OF DOCTOR WHO EVER. VERY DISAPPOINTING !!!!!!
