What is there to say about heaven sent that hasn't already been said. Such a beautiful story which shows the doctor struggling with grief over claras death and capaldi delivers one his best performances in the role. Not many actors could carry a story on their own like this but capaldi is one of them and he does it perfectly. This story is a perfect example of how good a writer moffat can be sometimes and the reveal at the end of what is actually going on in the castle and whos behind things is excellent.

Its just such a shame about what aired the week after...

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 !

Excellent. Blood pumping. Adrenaline inducing. Good acting. Capaldi deserves so much more of this. The doctor is trapped in what’s basically a interrogation. But more than ever before he won’t give in.

It has to be said that I don’t think new who has ever given me more chills up my spine. It’s beeb a upsy downy all aroundy era but moffs still got some skill tucked away and here it bloody is!

This episode is certainly unique when compared to the rest of Doctor Who - however it works. Like - it really works! Capaldi is giving the performance of a lifetime and the thematic elements of time and infinity perfectly encapsulate all that Doctor Who is and should be. Do all of the story elements work? Not necessary. ie. the reworking of the Doctor's Reason for leaving Gallifrey and the exact specifics about how the confession dial work. But come on lets be honest, that’s pretty standard fare for the show. Ignore the science - love the character - enjoy the adventure. As long as the character and story elements work and are believable - creating an engaging tapestry of emotion - then that's all that matters.
