Capaldi bring the story forward, he is the only actor here (except the child at the end but forget him) and he make the plot move. And this plot, what a plot, it is the best Nuwho episode I've seen. There's nothing weak here this is an experimental story and it work perfectly.

The castle st is beautiful and I think it was hard to design because it's strange and dark. The story is, herself, dark. There's no humour and, at last, there isn't Clara. Capaldi fight a monster that's really creepy in a place also creepy.

I'll never forget this episode because of the final twist. It's the best twist that have been made in Dr who. It isn't my favorite episode but it's my favorite Nuwho and Capaldi episode. Nobody will forget this acting.

Of course you need to have watch the whole series to understand the episode but you'll not waste your time. That sad that after the good Face the Raven and Heaven set we've a mess like Hell Bent.
For an experimental one it's really really the work of a genius. At last Moffat won ! At last he impress me !

I was lost. This plot is the must mind breaking plot of all. Everything happen quickly and there's always something weird here and here. Aliens sheeps, a flat Mike Yates, a Handbag ambassador... Everything is not what it look like, everything can happen at any moment and this is a masterpiece.

The Doctor/Iris relation is the best of the book. We can see that he didn't really like her in appearance but deep inside both of his hearts, he like her. Jo and Tom are really the 'I do something stupid' characters and it's funny because they are so idiots that they don't see who's the real ennemy.

The supporting cast isn't interesting here, there's the 'Master' who appear and Verdigris is always under disguise so you never know it's him. UNIT isn't really here so that's a fresh breeze for the Pertwee Doctor.

The Tardis of Iris isn't bigger on the inside, she drink, smoke, and kidnap her companions and it's quite the opposite of the Doctor. The final twist is unexpected and the whole novel is weird. I'm not really sure if it isn't happening in one of the characters' mind.

Perhaps one of the most disturbing and weird novel that exist. I think you'll not be able to read for some days after this because you'll think you're paranoid.

This is Evelyn final chronological story and it totaly contradict Istruments of darkness. But that doesn't matter (because Gary Russell exist and he need to break every good things he build). Sutton come back for a brilliant one and I liked it much than the previous he wrotte.

The Mel Evelyn encounter is great, I liked them but Evelyn spend most of episode 3 in a coma so she can't do something interesting. Mel is like I like her: she find the villain but don't understand it's him even if there's all the proofs in front of her, good old Mel !
The Doctor is better than in Arrangements and didn't end in a cell.

The supporting cast is memorable, the villain wasn't so mysterious because we quickly guess it's him and he is a bit cliché. And it's look like every villain is cliché in this range.
The sound is as good as in his prequel and the world of Vilag is full of animation.

I think this is one of the greatest release and I'm not going to forget it. I don't understand what's the title mean but it's quite mysterious.
One of the sixth Doctor best adventure even if the episodes aren't long enough for me.

This story is great, nearly perfect. There's characters developpements, special effects that build an atmosphere... And Evelyn is the central point of this story ! This is Paul Sutton first Dr who story and he didn't waste his time.

Evelyn is the central point of this one, she is sad about the recents death she'd seen. Here she don't want to be involved in the plot of Vilag but she find hereself in the middle of a love story beetween a princess, destined to a sort of prince, and a soldier. She give a sad speech at one moment and we can learn a bit more about her past. Finally this story end into a tragedy but I will not say something else about that.

The Doctor isn't very powerful here, he end in a cell, and I find this boring because in every story he end in a cell. The supporting cast is brilliant but the villains are the weakest point. They're here only because the story need a villain. The Killorans aren't really useful.

The best in this story is the sound, the world of Vilag live around us during this serial, it never end: there's trains, birds, even the soldiers helmets can be heard.

A good one, a must have for the Evelyn's supporters ! And a brilliant entrance for Sutton.
