Two things I'm not completely certain I've worked out from this story:

1) Who was this enemy the Doctor said he'd faced before? The resolution of the plot, post explosion of the train, sort of whizzed by me without the explanation presenting itself.

2) What is going on with Clara? Last week, she threatens to slap the Doctor hard enough that he'll regenerate before telling him to go far away. This week, she outright lies to Danny about "having taken care of that thing."

I thought this had lovely sets, was beautifully filmed & Clara was quite gorgeous. It was extremely dark in places (the catering crew floating outside being an example). Not sure about the ongoing back story though. And will Gus (or Perkins) return as this seemed to be a gaping hole in the plot?

Looks like I agree with you Slow Kidney. Perish the thought! Overall 4/5 from me.

While I agree with your assessment, C=O, and am certainly pleased you've come around to seeing things my way a bit more often, I'm not prepared to let the quality of the production values unfairly bump the story. The Gus/Perkins thing really threw me. 3/5.

For me this episode was a big improvement on the last few weeks and was very enjoyable. I'm with Patrick on the oddity of Clara's behaviour though. She said she loved Danny and yet is prepared to lie outrageously to him. Not good.
