Notes:

  • I got confused – who is the second photo on the Doctor’s desk? Is that what he thinks Clara looks like? Or is it a mystery for the rest of the season to unlock?
  • And is the other mystery for the rest of the season to unlock – whom did he promise he would stop taking companions traveling, and why? And why has he been sticking around the University of Bristol for fifty years?
  • Plus, that vault.
  • The delayed reaction to the TARDIS was cheesy at first, and glorious when the punchline hit.
  • Aww, how sweet of the Doctor to go take photos.
  • The Doctor being a university professor for ages seems very much like it’s reworking the premise (which was originally a Doctor Who script!) of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.
  • So, no real monster in the episode. Also how sweet.
