Really boring episode with awful child actors and the doctor encourages the mentally ill not to take their medication, what a mess.

The most boring doctor who episode ever, where the deadliest threat is a tiger.

Then the doctor tells kids not to take their medication? Really great message there.

Kid actors are almost never a good idea and here we have a whole crowd of them!

Really terrible.

Actually one of the stupidest doctor who episodes I’ve sat through. A forest grows over the earth almost instantly to deflect a dangerous flare from sun. Codswobble isn’t helped too by the terrible dynamic of Clara/Danny judge the doctor 24/7 ...

What can I say series 8 should have been a lot more about Capaldi and not Moffs weakness... shitty domestics. Leave that to russel.
Moffs strength is individual story telling and excellent quotes.

On a ps Franks second attempt in s10 “smile” I found much better.

The trees and children save the Earth story is just that wee bit more than slightly annoying, although infant school-aged viewers might like this deliberately unmenacing episode more than the scary ones. Certainly, helicopter parents are likely to endorse In the Forrest above the relatively more mature demographic the remainder of Capaldi's first series appears to be pitched to.

As with Kill the Moon, the Doctor is obviously trying hard to extract as much as he can from the pedestrian plot and unfortunately this shows in his acting.

The scene at the end when the lost girl appears from behind a bush serves only to drown this saccharine affair in an pool of treacle.
