Now we know who Claire is.
I really liked this one, was a little put out when we cut away from The Angel drama to catch up with Bel. Azure pretending to be a saviour and imprisoning people inside passenger, nice touch.

Should I know about division and quantum extraction? Feel I should but it could be my mind playing tricks.

How is the doctor going to get out of this one?

I've just read back what I posted, doesn't make much sense. Claire told the Dr and Yaz she would meet them in the past, she then fearfully made her way home and a weeping angel was waiting.

We don't know how many, as we don't know how many times the entity now known as the Doctor went through a transformation before being used as the source of the Time Lords' ability to transform.

Come back "The Flat Earthers" all is forgiven.

Well another stunning episode. I actually got a bit giddy ( What's this, something new) with the edge of the world bits until the angels and What's her face turned up with the Pratchats luggage charater - A bit "The Day the Earth Stood Still" like for me. That or Magical Mastery Tour "Foal on the Hill".

Let's not forget the the best bit though. Forget magic wandrivers (don't cross the beams) . Now she has the "Vulcan Mind Probe" up her sleave.

Is there no end to Dr WhereWithAll's talents.

Plus, now she's guaranteed to always win at "Rock Paper Scisssors" - Well, until someone figures out her weakness.

Anyone get a Village of the Damned feeling while watching?

Oh, and why didn't someone think to chuck the annoying little girl across the barrier - same entity in two places cure for these kind of time issues.

Really enjoyed it. Reminiscent of Sapphire and Steel.

It's because Claire was a Seer - she'd never met the Doctor before, just had a premonition of her.

I enjoyed the atmosphere of this one, and I felt the Angels were really well used but there's something about the plot that's bugging me - I don't think it will be as good on a rewatch.

The Bel segments felt a bit out of place, but the Ravagers continue to be welcome additions to the Dr's rogues gallery, even if I don't think they're the main threat or will survive this 6 parter.

Well it looks like the Doctor is in a very sticky situation, i.e. death. Which means a transformation? 14th Doctor anyone (or is it 15th?)
Wouldn't it be fun if the 14th Doctor is a Weeping Angel? Just think of the bottom line savings if the new Doctor could be handled by voice-over. ;)
The Weeping Angels are among the creepiest foes the Doctor has faced, as well as the most economical.
Lights out! Move the statues a little closer. Lights out! Move ... Save the one with the fangs for the closest shot. :LOL:

It would provide an explanation of how, at the end of an episode (not in this series, though), the Doctor is able to solve an apparently insolvable in the blink of an eye.

An excellent episode! The best I remember for a long time. I try not to get too perturbed about flaws here and there, but those torches seemed awfully convenient.

A bit too much like PickMeHardy getting turned it a Borg.

I can't see them...

Wait when has that ever been a problem for Whoopit writers.

I reckon it'll be a mild mannered reporter that works for "Guides to the Galaxion"
