A pretty freaky preview last week. I've heard good things about it.

2-DIS? The Doctor needs help with his humor.

Jenna using the art skills to save the day was a sneaky idea. If anyone ever wonders why they should put XP into non-combat skills, this is it.

Still, the comment at the end about Jenna being an excellent Doctor, and goodness having nothing to do with it. Very dangerous.

Two Dimensions in Space. Pretty apt. Loved this episode. As far as I'm concerned Jamie Mathieson can take over when the Grand Moff steps down, assuming I'm not in a position to do so :P

Decent episode. Just love the idea of the Tardis exterior shrinking - Clara and the Doc climbing out of the half-sized Tardis was hilarious. The 2D monsters were a pretty good idea.

I was a little put off by Clara "being the Doctor" for the episode. Seriously, she saves the Doctor's life throughout his entire timeline as "the impossible girl", she helped him become the Doctor in the first place, and now she's doing his job for him? Including knowing how to use his sonic screwdriver? The level of Mary Sue they paint that character with just goes up and up.

Not bad at all. "Monsters" were pretty high on the scary quotient. Looks like Pink gets to go in the Tardis next week.

Overall I loved this episode from start to finish. Great horror, and for the first time I actually loved Clara. I liked her assistant, too. And the Boneless were pure evil!
