Doctor Who Reactions: "Face the Raven"/"Heaven Sent"/"Hell Bent" (SPOILERS)

Face the Raven

1)Good to see Rigsy again, I liked that character.

2)"Did you make this human?"

3)"You've been retconned."

4)"She enjoyed that way too much." "Tell me about it."

5)Ah, the old hidden street trick.

6)And, there's Ashildr again.

7)"Sometimes Jane Austen and I prank each other."

8)"You will save Clara, and you will do it now, or I will rain hell on you for the rest of time."

9)"Maybe this is what I wanted."  I  feel as though  she never really  got over Danny's death. She's been unconsciously trying to get back to him ever since.

10)"You'll find that it's a very small universe when I'm angry with you."

11)Cliffhanger:  The Doctor is sent off to who-knows-where!

Heaven Sent

1)"I just watched my best friend die in agony, my day can't get any worse. Let's see what we can do about yours."

2)"I've finally run out of corridor. There's a life summed up."

3)"There are truths that I can never reveal - not for anything."

4)"I ran because I was scared."

5)"I'm not scared of Hell, it's just Heaven for bad people."

6)I believe that's the show's first use of the word "arse".

7)Cliffhanger: "The hybrid destined to conquer Gallifrey and stand in its ruins is me."

Hell Bent

1)Ah, it's her again.

2)"How many regenerations did we give you? I've got all night."

3)"Death is Time Lord for man flu."

4)Nice trick with the general's regeneration.

5)First time I ever felt bad  for a Dalek.

6)Nice to see the original console room again.

7)Those two lunatics loose with  a TARDIS?

8)And the screwdriver's back.

Overall:  Now that  I've see all three, I've have to say that I wasn't all that overwhelmed by this story. It had it good moments, but I thought Clara's death was a little overdone. I've heard "Heaven Sent" described as a great episode, and I thought it was  OK, but not the greatest episode ever.  "Hell Bent" was also OK, but not the great "return to Gallifrey" I'd hoped it might be.

Updated for "Heaven Sent".

Updated for "Hell Bent".

"6) Nice to see the original console room again."


"7) Those two lunatics loose with a TARDIS?"

So it's stuck in the form of a diner? Why is the chameleon circuit broken on this one? Is it a type 40, too? The Timelords really should authorize a recall. I wonder what the future plans are for "those two lunatics"?

"8) And the screwdiver's back."

All-New and All-Different.

And River Song will be back for Christmas.
