I can't remember the dialogue, but you didn't miss a great deal. The lady told the Doctor and Yaz that they didn't know her yet a-la River Song, and watched as they went into the TARDIS, then told herself she had to go home now. She went home, and got got by the Angel.WELL THERE WAS A LOT OF SHOUTING !! And a lot of running around. Like other Chroners have said, very disjointed - hopefully it will work itself out (in a relatvely logical way). The beginning was a bit...well...dumb/silly. A bit too much playing for laughs.
It is better without Ryan and Graham though.
Will be interesting (I hope...) how they work in the fact that the universe is being destroyed even though there have been many episodes set in the future. And the Swarm looks interesting - though looking forward (again, I hope) to the explanation as to how the Doctor does not know/remember it.
And despite the SHOUTING !! found it difficult to hear a lot of the dialogue over the incidental music and sounds - so perhaps lost some explantion.
One request to Chroners...we watched a recording of the episode. Unfortunately, sometimes these recordings (particularly with HD broadcasts) are prone to stutter and jump a few seconds. Annnnd....this was one of those times. Apart from a couple of action scenes, the only part of real significance (perhaps) was when the Doctor and Yaz were standing outside the Tardis and the woman approached them, walking down the street. What we saw/heard was her saying something like "I didn't expect to see you now" and "I took the long way round" (similar to what the Capaldi doctor said in one episode). The next second Doctor and Yaz were back in the Tardis so we obviously missed something. She later got sent back in time by a weeping angel so something's going on there.
Does anyone remember the dialogue?
Will be tuning in next week to see if things are a little more coherent.
I didn't dislike it, found it disjointed and hard to follow
I certainly hope so. I'm hoping for a full explanation of Claire, and all the other loose ends tied eventually. Who is the escaped convict and what exactly is the Flux?I can only hope that once all the episodes have aired, that it will all make a bit more sense.
Yaz was definitely better on her own. Maybe a single companion does work best??My joy at having the Doctor's companions pared to one was short-lived.
Great idea - "man's best friend" - but as with everything in the Who Universe, why haven't we ever seen them before? The world has been about to be destroyed many times before and they never showed up. What happens when someone dies naturally? Do they get re-assigned? How come the Doctor hasn't heard of them when she has become the Earth's de facto guardian?dog like creatures assigned to individual humans.
I can get around The Doctor not knowing.Great idea - "man's best friend" - but as with everything in the Who Universe, why haven't we ever seen them before?

Thanks Bagpuss . I did miss a lot! Now wondering whether (based on the bit about meeting in the past) whether "taking the long way home" was just her walking home a different way that night (because the Doctor had/will brought/bring her back in the Tardis) - rather than from the past (al la Capaldi).The dialogue went:
I can accept the Doctor not knowing some species - as Adams said; space is big. Really big. But not in this case, for the reasons @Dave lists.I can get around The Doctor not knowing.
The Doctor is great and mighty by most standards but ultimately limited and the universe is a really big place and time is even bigger!
They are bound to miss a few things.
I don't mind when they throw in something new, I'd just like it to be interesting.
But man's best friend? Really? As an idea it was only marginally better than the spider down the plug hole episode many Xmases' ago.
The concept is too convenient.
It looks like they came up with the set piece they wanted and then wrote their way back to dogs as protectors.
And can we be done with the Weeping Angels?
I didn't get the bit the first time round. It doesn't look much better to me now.
Is there a setting to reduce the streaming quality?Thanks Bagpuss . I did miss a lot!

Bloody annoying this poor playback on recordings - never happened on "regular" tv - only HD. Tends to happen when there's a lot of action going on the screen (so often lttle dialogue missed) - but not always (as in ths case).
