I don't dislike this episode nor do I love it. There are a couple of parts in it which made me giggle (Strax), but all in all I wouldn't rush back to watch it.

Probably 4.5, but I've marked it up.  The .5 off is probably mostly the flashback (even though I love flashbacks) but I loved the rest.

He is also vain, ego-centric and quite mad

Oh Mark, you produced an almost perfect Doctor Who episode. This was brilliant - the Paternoster St. Gang, the Mother/Daughter dynamic of Dame Diana Rigg and Rachel Stirling (who, may I say, stole the show) and the million horror homages throughout. This was Mark Gatiss' magnum opus on Who. This was the story he was always destined to write and it rippled with affection to both Doctor Who and the lost horror films that I am assuming we both shared in our childhood. Without doubt this was my highlight of series 7b - I loved almost every second of it...

...Apart from one. Why did the Doctor force a kiss on Jenny? This might be seen as a funny moment but it is totally outside of anything I've seen of the Doctor. He's funny, romantic, eccentric, dark, child-like, genius, quirky, lonely etc. But one thing you could never call him was a sex-pest. Until now. It works when kisses are forced on the Doctor (i.e. River) consensual (Clara/Martha) or life-saving (Rose). But the Doctor grabbing someone like that just didn't feel right to me.

So I knocked a mark off. What should have been a gold-plated 5, ended up with a 4/5. A shame.
