What a hot as mess...
30 January 2016 | by DCSassyQueenSee all my reviews

I did not enjoy the episode too much because it did not make too much sense. It was all over the place and the I was rolling my eyes practically throughout the whole episode.

I was never one that enjoyed the Dalek's as villains. I am usually bored to tears when they are in the story.

It is time for Clara to leave. She has overstayed her welcome. I was over her character around the 7th episode of last season. I do not hate her. She was actually likable sometimes, but she has become a bore now. I am ready for a new companion.

Missy was too dramatic at times, but she was still one of the food things about this episode.
