Dreams, detachable fingers, and an awkward conversation between the Doctor and Graham.

"Can you hear me?" had it all. Or did it?

What did you think of the latest episode of Series 12. Let us know!

well i kept thinking of Monsters Inc , the movie, when i saw this ep.
Found the storyline to be somewhat wobbly,
and the lessons are still being handed out, this time on mental health.

Back to meh! Not a terrible episode but not a great episode either. Tahira and Grace were nice additions, but the nightmare stealing aliens are just variations on a very old theme - even the the bad guy Zellin sort of admits this (referring to the Toymaker, the Black & White Guardians and the Eternals). Also nice to see them focus on mental health - especially that of Ryan's friend Tibo (male mental health is often overlooked in TV). In all I would rate this one 3/5.

I decided to get in early this week and watch on line, I wonder if Jodie will ever stop trying to be David Tennant , poor girl is not even in the same universe, when it comes to acting talent, the story was a rehash, and average at best, and still wooden Ryan survives, can we make a hat stand out of him ? Maybe or something else useful . Can't wait for Thursday so Rove and the arse lockers can tell us how great the episode was .ð???

First of, this was not the scariest episode yet. Not by a long shot, I thought prelixia was scarier.
I wonder if the timeless child is really the doctors daughter, well you know cloned daughter and that she has regenerated completely?
My moment in todayâ??s episode is when Ryan shows up and says â?? but I got chipsâ??.
And question why dose zellian pop of all his fingers if he was just getting the nightmare of one girl? I give this episode a 8 out of 10.

So just to be sure - did I watch the same episode as you guys and girls because based on your reviews, something is terribly wrong some where along the line. I loved this episode. The acting, especially from the companions (Yaz was a standout) was sublime, the hard science fiction element of a prison ship stuck between two colliding planets was awesome and I thought Zellin was great. Easily the best of 13's run and I would rank this episode alongside 11's Vincent and 10's Blink. Chibnell is really shaking up the Whoinverse by delivering programs which challenge and are not as plodding and based too much in the past like some of Moffat's last work was. As I said I must have watched a different episode - 5 stars from me.

The first thing that needs to be said is that is NOT Dr Who - more like Dr Who?. Can't believe they've completely trashed the whole history of the show. No scary aliens no Daleks no Weeping Angels no French Clicks only not-scary things put in the naughty corner and sent home. So far this season we've had climate change, mental health and other crap I've forgotten. Looking forward to a 40 min Greta cameo in final episode. Absolute CRAP! It's not Dr Who. Not surprised UK audience this season dropped from 5million to 3 million in 4 episodes. And as for wanker Rove and the rest of his mates - two questions - what planet are they on and how much are they paid to gush "my highlight of the episode is when Graham said he's behind that wall um door". Have stopped watching this trash now. Bring back Missy, River and the actually scary aliens from the early seasons who wete wrapped up in glad wrap and slfoil!

Interesting episode with a rather weak ending I thought.

The Doctor wields her sonic screwdriver and all is fixed. That's getting a bit of a standard episode ending and is very stretched now..

The villains were quite good (acting wise that is). I missed the mental health bit, the episode was well and truly over before the end.

Mmm. I agree about the sonic - but I dont think that it detracted that much from the episode. I always expect it to save the day at some point but it would be a nice change for the plot to be resolved in a more imaginative way from time to time after all the Dr is thousands of year old so she must have some other tricks up her sleeve.

Well, its a shame a previously loyal viewer has switched off but I wont miss having to read such strident reviews like this for the rest of the season's run - (but I bet you will still watch the 2 parter ending - I mean c'mon, a cyber army in full flow? That's an old school Dr Who fan favourite surely)

Another of Chibnal's Davieon era reworkings.

Snakedance meets the Black Guardian wasn't terrible but I think focussing on one person's nightmares in the 80s story was more successful. Too little time to do this justice - it needed to be a 2 parter. So refreshing to see a scene chewing baddy portrayed by an actor who was obviously loving haming it up well.

The stupid sonic flip was sillier than anything Mark Gatiss gave us (including Sleep No More) and marred the episode. Easy solution - have her hanging upside down OR have the spacestation losing gravity.
