    Thread for Episode 8 'Human Nature'

    UK readers remember the start time is different again this week - starting at 7.10pm BST.

    Likely to be SPOILERS in the thread

    Cheers, daveac

    I remember the last time they moved the times about like that, and it wasn’t good news for the Time Lord then. Let’s hope that isn’t happening again!! Or is that just paranoia creeping in.

    The controls of the TARDIS are isomorphic.

    I didn't think it was particularly fast, but I thought it was really good. As a period piece they nailed it perfectly!

    Based on what we've seen so far, I wonder if this (as a 2-parter) might even overtake episode 2 as my favourite of the series....

    Can't wait for next Saturday......

    I'm speechless.

    Actually - utterly - without - words.

    Can't fault it. But - I'm reserving my complete judgement until next week. Main reason: can't even compute how much I loved that episode.

    Wow! I thought this episode was perfect and a great mix of the old and new series styles. I went into this one knowing very little and was very impressed with the story. The 40-some minutes really flew by. My hopes are high for next week's conclusion.

    Did anyone catch the reference Mr. Smith makes to his parents? Nice joke there. And where can I get a copy of Mr. Smith's dream book!

    This is simply the best Who episode of the season, and perhaps of last season too.

    Simply lovely. Very well done. This is real writing going on here.

    And that preview was masterful!

    But I had no idea this was going to be a two-parter, so my family let out a mighty "Noooooo!" when the "To Be Continued" came up!

    Damn, now I have to wait a week to see what happens. Like most two-parters, I HOPE the second part meets the level of quality set up by the first part, which is often not the case, but somehow I think they can do it this time.

    Wow... this is why I watch Doctor Who.

    Did anyone catch the internal references?

    John Smith's dad was named Sydney, and his mom was Verity. Sydney Newman and Verity Lambert.

    Sean.

    One solid hope is worth a cartload of uncertainties.

    And Paul McGann makes his first appearance in RTD Who. Interesting that he's so prominent, when there were nine other faces to put front and center in Smith's journal. Plus, why is it that Doctors other than the Fifth seem to get something interesting to do with a cricket ball?

    Excellent!

    Loved the references especially with the cricket ball, I almost expected him to go to the dance with celery in his lapel.

    Overtones of so many old Hammer Horrors.

    Can't wait for next week

    Forget the shooty dog thing!

    Paul Cornell hits it out the park once more!

    And a pre-9th Doctor in the RTD era!

    Saw McGann and McCoy in there...that's Sylvester not 'Bones' or X-Men's Beast. Wink

    The 5th Doctor (Peter Davison) can also be seen with the aforementioned Doctors as well. Nice.

    The Fire and Ice speech is spoken by the young man that found aka nicked the pocket watch. Two words Doctor, lock box!

    Preview for Pt 2 we see The Doctor getting married and having children! Makes we wonder what'll happen next week.

    Was he tempted by The Family? Was this his imagining staying as a human? Or is that will happen and Martha and/or The Doctor go back and hit the patented Star Trek:Voyager Reset Button™?

    Man this is gonna send some Whovians into a frenzy. How 'bout the ones when they got wind of this story they boycotted DW?

    Where are they?

    I was absolutely blown away by this episode. Another fine mark for what has been an outstanding season thus far.

    Definitely had a geek-gasm over the past regenerations showing up in the sketches of the journal. Nicely done indeed.

    Tennant really soared in this - beautifully restrained stuff. Great atmosphere throughout as well - felt very much like Who of times past.

    Can't wait to see how this one shakes out next week - definitely had me shouting over the unfair cliffhanger - superb! Big Grin

    Wooooonderful!

    Hurray!!! What a fantastic first parter. Really engaging story, and oh the beautiful coats!

    Amazing - five groans

    If Worzel Gummidge and the Third Doctor had a fist fight - who would win?
