What's weird is that as soon as we had him... that comment about not being her boyfriend was really poignantly delivered by Capaldi... they switched gears and brought in Smith. It's definitely something the writers were worried about. Casting regret? We'll probably never know why they chose to do it like they did.
Then again, it's possible they decided sharing the news too early wouldn't allow people to buy into her and Capaldi as the Doctor. The Matt Smith cameo was rumored and true. They're not great at keeping secrets.
I think Clara previously got the shaft because people were so in love with Amy Pond and Eleven. I've never had an issue with her and thought she did just as beautifully last night as she did last season. She had big shoes to fill, but did so admirably.
There were too many commercials. That's to be expected of a (short) feature length presentation on TV, I guess.
While i get that Clara may have trouble adjusting, it felt -- overall -- like a hard-sell on Peter Capaldi. He did better when left to his own devices than when he was apologizing for not being Matt Smith. It was awkward.
Well, "why", it's not a recap. Nor is it a review of the episode, which is what we do at TV Fanatic. It's a round table discussion about the episode.
It's so much easier than trying to come up with a creative way to refer to it. Since it speaks through Circles, it seemed fitting! :-)
We have yet to see Grace and Neil together. I'm sure I could root for them if we spent any time with them, but for now they keep showing us how fab they are with other people and it makes me want to see more of them.
His not noticing her work shows he's still not understanding how much she wants him to be interested in her work. As for the koi painting, it was the one Neil ensured Adriana got at their masked mall.
The photos Dylan sent to Grace didn't show anything salacious. They were artful and beautiful. He doesn't seem like the type of guy who will let full blown nudes out without her permission. Then again, maybe he's pushing buttons just like everyone else. Simon seems to be taking a bit of a backseat at the moment. It was definitely Neil Grace was with in the bathroom. I paused it for confirmation. He also says "You lied to me" outside what appears to be a bar bathroom, so maybe that's when they have sex. Interesting that you like Rush. I find him incredible boring. One dimensional. I can't even watch anymore. We're all different!
