What did you Think of The Girl Who Died?

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

Captured by Vikings, the Doctor and Clara must help protect their village from Space Warriors from the future: the Mire. Outnumbered and outgunned, their fate seems inevitable. So why is the Doctor preoccupied with a single Viking girl?

    Without the last few minutes, It would not be a strong episode.:(

    The names are so similar though, they HAVE to be some how linked

    Very good episode I liked the idea about the face but what does that mean about the 2nd and 6th doctor’s faces?

    I was hoping for a whole episode on his face not just a 20 second scene and I feel making her live forever was a lot crueler than just letting her die it was still better than in the forest of the night though

    They didn’t have to think of something – Moffat could have just left it unexplained. Maybe they just look similar. I’m okay with the explanation though.

    Why did they get rid of the rock theme? It was awesome!

    I was told they weren’t linked

    Oh dear, the first dud episode of this series. A lot of it simply didn’t make sense. Hopefully a one-off.

    good point CJ

    October 17th, 2015 - 9:20pm

    Well they had to think of something but that idea was awfull

    also the lady in the next episode could be the same person, which is how the stories are linked

    Thought that was great. Was convinced the girl was river whole way through until the end. “Fire in the water” – thought we would see a river regeneration after the med-kit healed her and repaired the regeneration energy. Think we will see anew sonic now too which could link to river

    Absolutely loved it, definitely one of my favourites. The first 10 minutes I thought was terrible but from the Vikings trapped aboard the ship to the end were wonderful. It was very smart they way in which they beat the mire, paired with the Benny Hill theme I thought it was hilarious.

    Didn’t really like the character of Ashildr, don’t get why the Doctor needed to save her so badly when so many others have died but it does mean she can now live forever (?) Which is a little too similar to Captain Jack.

    Loved seeing Donna again, the music was wonderful and the last shot of Ashildr was wonderfully done (though a little cheesy) would have been great if the land had changed too around her to show the passing of time, like buildings appearing.

    Overall the best in this series for me.

    *ranking, not tanking

    Ah but I don’t think she can age… So she can’t be

    thanks

  • The eternal doctor

    October 17th, 2015 - 9:18pm

    That would be good

  • CJ

    October 17th, 2015 - 9:17pm

    Told you all she was a new character and finally we know why he has that face!

  • The Temporal Jelly Baby

    October 17th, 2015 - 9:17pm

    You could be onto something there.

    I was hoping for something better due to Jamie Mathieson’s first two episodes, which were both very good, especially Mummy on the Orient Express. He wrote the two best episodes of series 8. However, in my episode tanking of the first five episodes of this series, I’d put this 4th or possibly 5th. It was still good, but didn’t live up to my expectations.

    And he couldn’t just write a note?

  • The eternal doctor

    October 17th, 2015 - 9:16pm

    To remind him to save people

    I was so disappointed. The face thing was so bad and the sollution was alright I guess.
    2/10

    So why did twelve have that face again?

    October 17th, 2015 - 9:12pm

    Wow, now that was brilliant!

    October 17th, 2015 - 9:11pm

    I have no words….it was pretty terrible up until the last 10 minutes loved seeing Donna again but apart from that I don’t think I’ll be watching that episode again

    I have a theory that the girl is jenny flint

    Very clever and well written. The throwback to Tennant was great and a bit of reversing the polarity just for fun. It will be interesting to see where this story goes from here.
