This episode felt in part in the style of a Jon Pertwee story even without
the references to the Blue Crystal from Metabilis 3, and in part in the
style of Patrick Troughton, except done in 45 minutes.

There was the Doctor creating psychic equipment out of something you'd find
in your kitchen or attic, there was a whole load of tape recorders,
oscilloscopes, signal generators, cameras, plotters and the like, and the
Doctor prancing around, drawing stuff on the floor, acting like a clown and
being mysterious.

Obviously the new solution to the problem of the stories not working in only
45 minutes is to end every story on a minor cliff-hanger a la Patrick
Troughton but let the viewer figure out how it's resolved.

As with last week, this felt like it was the opening two episodes of a
multi-parter all compressed into one and the next two episodes left to the
viewer to invent.

Also the current story arc blueprint now includes the Doctor specifically
going on an adventure to find out something specific about the condition of
his companion, a la TRF/TAP.

The story was good and included the philosophising and plot and true
character related discussion that was missing from all the RTD series, but
it was pretty obvious that the ghost was somebody or something somewhere
where time was running at a different rate relative to the observer.

Nevertheless this is the best series since Doctor Who was revived and the
most reminiscent of classic Doctor Who.

10/10

Looking forward to next week's story.

I can't be bothered to write a review. But basically another dud in my
opinion. Same guy that wrote Rings of Akhaten. Same lapses in coherence.
Lots of "plot" points left completely unanswered. Again. For instance: How
did Hila get into the pocket dimension? Why was she there on her own? Why
was there an alien (or whatever it was meant to be) on earth on its own (and
its partner in the pocket dimension with Hila)? Talking of the alien/crooked
man/whatever - it was a rather unnecessary strand that added little to the
story, was under-developed and simply felt like the author was trying to
throw in everything including the kitchen sink into his story. Clara was
also quite inconsistent, as was the use of the cloister bell and the TARDIS
interface thingy in the form of Clara.. And it felt a bit like a proper
ending got edited out by mistake.

Really? I thought it was very good, compared to most modern DW
Post by Stephen Wilson
Same guy that wrote Rings of Akhaten.
But very, very different style. With Rings it was as if he was trying
to push the envelope and see how far he could go in doing something
that didn't feel like DW at all. Here it's more like he's trying to
go in the opposite direction and see how much he can recreate the feel
of traditional DW.

If it wasn't for his reusing the "power of daughterly love" plot-
device, I wouldn't have recognised it as the same writer at all.

Well, that's a problem with anyone trying to do anything ambitious in
the 45 minute format.

But I've always preferred it when stories try to stretch themselves to
do something too big and and too complex for the budget and/or
timeslot (even if they don't quite succeed - e.g. Time Flight is one
of my guilty pleasures!) I'd rather they did that than just play it
safe and produce something formulaic, familiar, unambitious and bland,
like last week's offering.
Post by Stephen Wilson

Presumably a side effect of her malfunctioning experimental time
machine.

Why
was there an alien (or whatever it was meant to be) on earth on its own (and

More importantly, how long had it been there? Assuming it's native to
the other dimension, had Hila accidentally switched places with it
when she arrived in prehistory? Or had it been somehow brought to our
universe by an attempt to contact the "ghost"?

I'd love to know more about it. But that's the penalty of only having
45 minutes.

True, but throwing in an unnecessary monster because "DW has to have
monsters" is hardly new. It didn't ruin "Caves of Androzani", did it?
Post by Stephen Wilson
Clara was
also quite inconsistent,
I think that was supposed to be deliberate. The psychic did say
something about Clara being more scared than she lets on, implying
that a lot of what we see is an act that she puts on.

I'm hoping that was setting things up for an upcoming part of the
arc. (But maybe that's just me being optimistic. Too often things
that looked like they were setting up arc elements have just fizzled
away.)

At least there was stuff there to edit out. Better than not having

I completely agree. But there's a difference between trying to do something
different/complex and writing something that really makes no sense at all.
You don't have to spoon-feed the audience, but I really couldn't see where
the author was coming from. He made a big deal about going through all the
cliches of a ghost story - changes in temperature, writing on the wall, etc
yet the story ended without ever explaining why the temperature dropped in
one part of the room, what the point of the Doctor's chalk circle was, who
wrote on the wall, etc. Set pieces in a ghost story, yes. Making sense in
the overall context of the story? No.

I don't know. I think I'd rather see a little unnecessary padding and a more
coherent story than 1,001 ideas, most of which are irrelevant and don't
allow the story to breathe properly.

I don't think the writer is responsible for the special effects or Matt
Smith's pronunciation. Or are you actually suggesting that the script
actually micro-managed it to that level of control-freakish detail?

The impression I got was that there was some sort of feedback between the
haunting phenomenon and the psychic woman. (Remember all that talk about
non-objective observations, and the Doctor's remark about the clocks.)
She, wrongly, believed that she was dealing with a traditional ghost.
(Remember her remark at the start that she thought the ghost felt very
dead.) So her subconscious influenced the phenomenon and caused the set
pieces.

The author didn't "spoon-feed the audience", but in your case it might've
been better if he had!

good readers of body language and tell their victims what they want to

Obviously there are a lot of charlatans pretending to be professional
psychics. But that doesn't mean that genuine psychic phenomenon don't
exist in real life. They're just not as regular and controllable as the
fraudsters pretend. (e.g. I've experienced many psychic visions and
premonitions, and even been the focus the occasional burst of electrical
poltergeist activity, but there's no way I can turn it on or off at will.)
Post by Stephen Wilson

powers.
Why not? Even you're too closed-minded to accept that psychic powers
happen in real life, that doesn't still mean they can't happen in the
fantasy universe of Doctor Who.
Post by Stephen Wilson
But if the author knew anything about Dr Who at all, he'd know
that the Doctor himself would have more psychic abilities than any
human...
_Any_ human? In "The Sensorites", the crewman John was sensitive enough
to be driven mad by the alien telepathy, while the Doctor didn't sense
anything at all.

In fact, if _you_ knew anything about Dr Who at all, you'd know that the
Doctor's psychic abilities are very limited and usually need to be
boosted by artificial devices such as telepathic circuits, psychic paper,
etc. (The only notable exception was his Vulcan mind meld with Madame de
Pompadour, which many fans noted at the time felt wrong.)

poltergeist activity, but there's no way I can turn it on or off at will.)
So THAT's why science can't prove the existence of psychic phenomena! They can't be controlled well enough to allow for repeatable experiments!

Are there any circumstances under which you are more likely to experience psychic activity?

More animals: The professor worked with carrier pigeons during his spy career.

The Doctor refers to the birds and the bees and romantic fleas when telling Clara that the monster he saw in the Pocket dimension is separated from its lover. The Doctor seems to think that the monster is female, but how can he tell?

Same guy that wrote Rings of Akhaten.
But very, very different style. With Rings it was as if he was trying
to push the envelope and see how far he could go in doing something
that didn't feel like DW at all. Here it's more like he's trying to go
in the opposite direction and see how much he can recreate the feel of
traditional DW.
By using a handful of characters, crap special effects and references to
the past (mis-pronounced Metebelis, cloister bell ringing when the
Doctor was in danger rather than the TARDIS, etc)?
I don't think the writer is responsible for the special effects or Matt
Smith's pronunciation. Or are you actually suggesting that the script
actually micro-managed it to that level of control-freakish detail?
Post by Stephen Wilson
After his first story, I said it seemed to me that Neil Cross understood
neither Dr Who nor science fiction in general. This story just
reinforced that opinion.
You seem to be suggesting that Doctor Who _should_ be science fiction.
If that's the case, then you're the one who doesn't understand them!
Post by Stephen Wilson
Post by solar penguin
But I've always preferred it when stories try to stretch themselves to
do something too big and and too complex for the budget and/or timeslot
(even if they don't quite succeed - e.g. Time Flight is one of my
guilty pleasures!) I'd rather they did that than just play it safe and
produce something formulaic, familiar, unambitious and bland, like last
week's offering.
I completely agree. But there's a difference between trying to do
something different/complex and writing something that really makes no
sense at all. You don't have to spoon-feed the audience, but I really
couldn't see where the author was coming from. He made a big deal about
going through all the cliches of a ghost story - changes in temperature,
writing on the wall, etc yet the story ended without ever explaining why
the temperature dropped in one part of the room, what the point of the
Doctor's chalk circle was, who wrote on the wall, etc. Set pieces in a
ghost story, yes. Making sense in the overall context of the story? No.
The impression I got was that there was some sort of feedback between the
haunting phenomenon and the psychic woman. (Remember all that talk about
non-objective observations, and the Doctor's remark about the clocks.)
She, wrongly, believed that she was dealing with a traditional ghost.
(Remember her remark at the start that she thought the ghost felt very
dead.) So her subconscious influenced the phenomenon and caused the set
pieces.
The author didn't "spoon-feed the audience", but in your case it might've
been better if he had!

Again. For instance: How
did Hila get into the pocket dimension? Why was she there on her own?
Presumably a side effect of her malfunctioning experimental time
machine.
A poorly thought-through plot device in other words.
You'd rather there was a load of meaningless Trek-style technobabble
explaining exactly how particles and waves and superstrings emitted by
her time machine caused this to happen?

There's never been a genuine psychic. The ones that make money are just
good readers of body language and tell their victims what they want to

I'm not a great lover of characters that are meant to have psychic
powers.
Why not? Even you're too closed-minded to accept that psychic powers
happen in real life, that doesn't still mean they can't happen in the
fantasy universe of Doctor Who.
Post by Stephen Wilson
But if the author knew anything about Dr Who at all, he'd know
that the Doctor himself would have more psychic abilities than any
human...
_Any_ human? In "The Sensorites", the crewman John was sensitive enough
to be driven mad by the alien telepathy, while the Doctor didn't sense
anything at all.
In fact, if _you_ knew anything about Dr Who at all, you'd know that the
Doctor's psychic abilities are very limited and usually need to be
boosted by artificial devices such as telepathic circuits, psychic paper,
etc. (The only notable exception was his Vulcan mind meld with Madame de
Pompadour, which many fans noted at the time felt wrong.)
After Hila was rescued, the Doctor said that she couldn't return to her own time (300 years in the future) because history had recorded that she had gone missing. Her failure to ever return to her time was therefore a "fixed point in time". Yet in the very previous episode, the Doctor said that the history of late 20th century Earth could change. I.E: A Martian Ice Warrior could start a nuclear war in 1983, in spite of Clara having been born after 1983 in a world where nuclear war had not occurred. Wouldn't history have recorded that there hadn't been a nuclear war in 1983, making the lack of a 1983 nuclear war a fixed point in time?

Since Doctor was able to photograph Hila in the far future, how could he
extract her from pocket universe in 1974?
Because one of his legs are both the same.
Why is a mouse when it spins?
Because the chicken crossed the road.
Less is more?

Hila the pioneering time traveler has been rescued from the pocket universe. The pocket universe also contained a monster which had been chasing her. The Doctor has somehow jumped to the conclusion that the monster is in love with Hila! The monster (which is big and grey) doesn't look anything like a human, so why would it be attracted to her?

Hila the pioneering time traveler has been rescued from the pocket universe.
Possible resolution of "Listen" conundrum!

Clara played a role in rescuing Hila, so she is now linked to her. There was another Terran time traveler linked to Clara: Orson Pink (Listen). Clara's link to the TARDIS telepathic circuits had led the TARDIS to Orson, Orson had a toy soldier that once belonged to the young Danny Pink (Clara's boyfriend), Orson looked like Danny, Orson said that he had a female time traveling ancestor, and the Doctor thought that there was a link. There was a strong implication that Clara and Danny would be ancestors to Orson Pink!

Dark Waters/Death In Heaven: Then Danny died when hit by a car, then died again to wipe out the Cyber spore. This led to a conundrum, which could be resolved by having Clara marry a brother of Danny, or by having Clara use sperm that Danny had stored, or by bringing Danny back from the dead again, or by bringing Clara back in time to boink past Danny silly.

Spoilers for Face The Raven and Hell Bent:

Then Clara got herself killed by a mystical bird without issue. The Doctor later got the Time Lords to extract her from her timeline an instant before her death, but her biological functions are timelocked, so she can't get pregnant. This makes it seem impossible to ever bring Orson Pink into existence! However, Hila (the time traveler rescued during "Hide") must stay in 1974 because history says that she never returned from her time travel mission! I therefore propose that SHE be one of Orson Pink's ancestors, so as to fulfill the requirement that one of Orson's female ancestors be a time traveler, and the requirement that Clara be linked to Orson Pink's timeline. Clara is linked to Hila, so would be linked to any of Hila's descendants!

The story was good and included the philosophising and plot and true
character related discussion that was missing from all the RTD series,
but it was pretty obvious that the ghost was somebody or something
somewhere where time was running at a different rate relative to the
observer.
Nevertheless this is the best series since Doctor Who was revived and the
most reminiscent of classic Doctor Who.
10/10
Looking forward to next week's story.
I can't be bothered to write a review. But basically another dud in my
opinion. Same guy that wrote Rings of Akhaten. Same lapses in coherence.
Lots of "plot" points left completely unanswered. Again. For instance: How
did Hila get into the pocket dimension? Why was she there on her own? Why
was there an alien (or whatever it was meant to be) on earth on its own
(and its partner in the pocket dimension with Hila)? Talking of the
alien/crooked man/whatever - it was a rather unnecessary strand that added
little to the story, was under-developed and simply felt like the author
was trying to throw in everything including the kitchen sink into his
story. Clara was
Like I said in my review, they tried to cram in two parts worth of story
into just one part and they've obviously had to cut lots of stuff out
including the explanations for all of the above. There's also no time
available for plot twists so the can only do one stranded stories. The
strand about the monster should have been left out altogether. If they had 2
or 3, 45 minute episodes to tell the story then they could have done all of
these things and elaborated on the time experiment and linked it to the
presence of the monster. Maybe it was monster that created the bubble
universe and dragged in the time traveller or it was it's own universe that
was collapsing and it was trying to escape.

also quite inconsistent, as was the use of the cloister bell and the TARDIS
Remember that the Cloister Bell rang in Logopolis because all the
interlinked universes that were keeping this one alive were breaking off.
Maybe that was one of them.

Each to their own. You're obviously a better man than I am though. I can
read Arthur C Clarke, Isaac Asimov, etc. without having any problems. 45
minutes of Hide - well it tried to be a love story (twice over), tried to be
a ghost story and tried to be science fiction. Tried to do too much and
failed for me on all counts, but obviously succeeded for many others.

What do those books have to do with a 45min kids show? You think reading
them makes you clever? Something better than 8 million who like the TV
show?

Have to ask, how on earth did you watch the Dr Who crap from before this
reincarnation? It used to be dry, turgid, torture to watch. Padded out
to fill its format, and so cheap it was a joke. This show is finally
what it should be.

As for the plot point, the origins of the trapped woman and the aliens
is utterly irrelevant to the story being told. I mean, if everything
must be spoon fed to you, then why not complain that the two gohst
hunters weren't fully fleshed out? Why not 15mins on the history of the
house? How about some instruction manuals on the bloody TARDIS? This
goes on for ever.

Sounds to me like you are some old fart who cant cope with something
new, and goes out of his way to piss all over those who do like it.
Well, stop watching, fuck off, and be decent enough to allow others to
like it.

TBH, no one making this show give a shit about old farts. Just the 8
million watching it.

Those are science fiction books, witten by people who actually have an

No, Yads. In the 60s and 70s, Doctor Who was an anthology drama that
visited many different genres. It had Science Fiction *elements* to
it, but it was not primarily a science fiction series. In the early
days, they were often Period Costume Drama, mystery, or action-
adventure. In the 70s, they did a lot of basically spy-action-
thrillers and gothic horror. In the late 70s, JNT got it into his
head that the show had always meant to be a science fiction show, and
promptly ran it off the rails trying to force it to be one.

Doctor Who is not a science fiction show. The only times it's tried to

Well since the 1960 Science Fiction show for the Family.

The story was good and included the philosophising and plot and true
character related discussion that was missing from all the RTD series, but
it was pretty obvious that the ghost was somebody or something somewhere
where time was running at a different rate relative to the observer.
Nevertheless this is the best series since Doctor Who was revived and the
most reminiscent of classic Doctor Who.
10/10
Looking forward to next week's story.
I can't be bothered to write a review. But basically another dud in my
opinion. Same guy that wrote Rings of Akhaten. Same lapses in coherence.
Lots of "plot" points left completely unanswered. Again. For instance: How
did Hila get into the pocket dimension? Why was she there on her own? Why
was there an alien (or whatever it was meant to be) on earth on its own (and
its partner in the pocket dimension with Hila)? Talking of the alien/crooked
man/whatever - it was a rather unnecessary strand that added little to the
story, was under-developed and simply felt like the author was trying to
throw in everything including the kitchen sink into his story. Clara was
also quite inconsistent, as was the use of the cloister bell and the TARDIS
interface thingy in the form of Clara.. And it felt a bit like a proper
ending got edited out by mistake.

My issue with the nutter fans is they like the brand, and don't give a shit about consistancy in
the writing. It's not like they called it a restarted series they convince us they took over from Hartnel et al.....
Well try to. They like Dr Who, but they don't know shit about it from beginning to end, the nuttier the less they know
I rarely care until the brand nutters like you show up. Then it awakens my love of what I watched through my
life. I understood temporal theory in Kindergarden, so it was special to me. Plus always liked dressing odd.

So there was a large grey crooked man alien on Earth since prehistory, and one of the opposite sex in the pocket universe? Given the differences in time rates, why hadn't the one on Earth died long ago?

Hila is not the only time traveler to go on a solo mission! Orson Pink also went on a solo mission! Perhaps whoever sponsored Hila's mission only had enough money for ONE time traveler!

was there an alien (or whatever it was meant to be) on earth on its own (and

Given the time flow differential (a lot slower in the pocket universe), shouldn't the Earth monster have long since died of old age? (The Doctor photographed Hila over a period of several billion years).

The Doctor photographs Hilda in the pocket dimension in Earth's far future, then rescues her from tthe pocket dimension in 1974, bringing her to the world of 1974. How can the Doctor photograph Hilda in Earth's far future when she will leave the pocket dimension in 1974?

This episode felt in part in the style of a Jon Pertwee story even without
the references to the Blue Crystal from Metabilis 3, and in part in the
style of Patrick Troughton, except done in 45 minutes.
There was the Doctor creating psychic equipment out of something you'd
find in your kitchen or attic, there was a whole load of tape recorders,
oscilloscopes, signal generators, cameras, plotters and the like, and the
Doctor prancing around, drawing stuff on the floor, acting like a clown
and being mysterious.
Obviously the new solution to the problem of the stories not working in
only 45 minutes is to end every story on a minor cliff-hanger a la Patrick
Troughton but let the viewer figure out how it's resolved.
As with last week, this felt like it was the opening two episodes of a
multi-parter all compressed into one and the next two episodes left to the
viewer to invent.
Also the current story arc blueprint now includes the Doctor specifically
going on an adventure to find out something specific about the condition
of his companion, a la TRF/TAP.
The story was good and included the philosophising and plot and true
character related discussion that was missing from all the RTD series, but
it was pretty obvious that the ghost was somebody or something somewhere
where time was running at a different rate relative to the observer.
Nevertheless this is the best series since Doctor Who was revived and the
most reminiscent of classic Doctor Who.
10/10
Looking forward to next week's story.
I have to agree on all points ;-)

I really enjoyed this half season so far, now if only they had done all the
stories as two parters... Never since the restart did I miss the old format
more than in the last weeks. I suppose the classic four(+) part seriels
would not work with todays audience, but imagine what could have been done
with this stories with a bit more time.

I just hope with this start I'm not gonna be dissapointed with the season
finale. With each story my expectations keep rising.

The Doctor discovers that a pioneer time traveler is trapped in a pocket universe where time moves slowly. He generates a wormhole to that universe with the help of a psychic, ties rope to himself, and dives in. When he arrives, why does he remove the rope?

Troughton but let the viewer figure out how it's resolved.
As with last week, this felt like it was the opening two episodes of a
multi-parter all compressed into one and the next two episodes left to the
viewer to invent.
Also the current story arc blueprint now includes the Doctor specifically
going on an adventure to find out something specific about the condition of
his companion, a la TRF/TAP.
The story was good and included the philosophising and plot and true
character related discussion that was missing from all the RTD series, but
it was pretty obvious that the ghost was somebody or something somewhere
where time was running at a different rate relative to the observer.
So time was slow in the pocket universe. Wouldn't that mean that the Doctor's time would be moving slowly while he was in the pocket universe, and not get out until everyone at the mansion is dead of old age?

How was Clara able to pilot the TARDIS well enough to fly through the pocket universe to scoop up the Doctor, then at the end the Doctor & the monster?
