    A better episode this week. Loved seeing Diana Rigg is the villainess.

    I still think they need to resolve the Clara back-story soon, or at least, give us some clues.

    I have to admit I chuckled at the Thomas Thomas kid who helped Strax find Sweetville. "You have arrived at your destination."

    Any episode with the trio from Victorian England is a good episode. They could do a spin off series with them and I'd be all in.

    I love Strax. Always wanting to take the extreme military option, threating to kill the horse (third one this week!) and yet deferring to Vastra.

    And Jenny with the Matrix-like suit and moves! :up:

    Yes. She's 74!

    Oh, and there were added wrinkles from the makeup department. She doesn't look quite that prunish in Game Of Thrones.

    When Clara went "Miss me?" and got a kiss on the forehead, I heard "Kiss me?" and was thinking what a wimpy kiss! :p

    Tom Tom!

    I thought this was a better episode. I think Neil Gaiman's is next week.

    I laughed at the GPS-like directions, but the significance of his name being Thomas Thomas went right over my head until you just pointed it out!

    I wonder if that kid's voice will be available as a TomTom voice download. :D

    I thought Jenny's suit was an Emma Peel nod (but they did do something weird with the speed of the fight, a la Matrix)

    I'm also onboard with a Strax, Vastra, Jenny spinoff, please!

    She can also currently be seen on Game of Thrones.

    I loved her cameo in Extras a few years back. She was way more recognizable there.

    This was a fun episode, and I love Jenny and Strax. Aside from a spin-off (which seems inevitable, considering attention paid to the three of them), it would be great if they traveled with the Doctor for a while, like temporary companions.

    Clarity of Clara's photograph from Victorian era was a bit pushing it ... but on the plus side, the Deus Ex Screw Driver was only barely used (at least less than usual). Any idea how the Doctor got cured of the poison?

    Same way as Clara, in that convenient reversing cabinet.

    I hope Strax becomes a companion. He cracks me up. He's like a modern Leela who always wanted to kill somebody in her earlier episodes.

    Where did Clara's Victorian era photographs and the other ones come from? Was somebody taking pictures in the background that I totally missed?
