Another good tale from Steven Moffat, another great performance by Peter Capaldi, and an opening five minutes that gave me more chills than any Doctor Who episode to date!

This is a wonderfully new story with a great premise - two-dimensional beings trying to understand three dimension. The characters were just as good here as they were in MotOE, and Clara became that much more interesting in this story, with the Doctor sidelined once again. An intelligent tale with some good and acting and better writing.
Should Mathieson's standard writing be up to par with the past two episodes, I wouldn't mind at all to have him replace Moffat.

This is the cracker we've been waiting for this season.

DOWNS
The use of a countdown isn't the most original, but it;s explanation kind of makes up for it.
The title (not Mathieson's fault - Moffat had told him to make a story with this title. Seriously, Steve?)

UPS
The acting was spot-on by everyone, brilliant dynamics and growth throughout the story.
The characters are above average, but not the masterpieces they're often made out to be.
The Doctor's talk with the mummy at the end gave me goosebumps when the said those final two words to cap off everything he just revealed about the Mummy.
I feel like the Doctor's character has been fully fleshed out in this story - manipulative, brutally honest, dark, but never lightless. Brilliant!
Now, best for last - the SCRIPT. Holy goodness. What a great story, presented in a way that's episodic, every time the Mummy disappears you want to know what happens to the next person. It's an effective use of the completion principle.

All in all, a suspenseful tale with every second used wisely, always making the viewer want to see what happens next. More from Mathieson!

DOWNS
The entire mood and atmosphere of the story felt...different. Not in a good way.
Boring characters. (The astronauts)
Annoying characters. (Courtney)
The moon isn't the moon.

UPS
Interesting moral arguments were brought up in this story, and neither was either argued to be morally right or wrong.
Clara's outburst at the end added a who;e new dimension to her character, whom up until then I had perceived as completely boring.
The Doctor's opening speech to the astronauts.

All in all, the good aspects of the story barely outweigh the bad ones.
