After writing on his blackboards the Doctor places a piece of chalk on to a book. When he picks it up after it (supposedly) falls to the floor the chalk stick shows no sign of use. See more »


[first lines]
The Doctor: Listen. Question. Why do we talk out loud when we know we're alone?
[blows out candle]
The Doctor: Conjecture. Because we know we're not.
[He writes on his blackboard]
The Doctor: Evolution perfects survival skills. There are perfect hunters. There is perfect defence. Question. Why is there no such thing as perfect hiding? Answer. How would you know? Logically, if evolution were to perfect a creature whose primary skill were to hide from view, how could you know it existed?

Nearly very good
29 December 2014 | by acutlerSee all my reviews

Apparently - there is a massive difference between being able to submit an episode or two into another persons show, and having the responsibility of running the whole thing. Steven has actually met and beaten my expectations for orchestrating seasons of Doctor Who - but unsurprisingly this has come at the expense of his own stories lacking the punch (and vivacious originality) they had in the RTD era. Problem 1, they no longer have the contrast to Russell T. Davies. Problem 2, we might suspect that Steven cannot dream up as many superlative ideas per season that a Show Runner requires compared to an occasional contributor.

Listen - however, is almost Steven Moffat at his best. The only bit that doesn't work for me, is the 2-3 minutes of the Doctor's self-indulgent soliloquy at the beginning. It is totally unnecessary, and has some of the most flawed Doctor logic ever put on display - suggesting late night - half-a-bottle of wine- Steven Moffat. Why is hiding not a defence? Why is a Cheetah an anywhere near perfect predator? (it is empirically far from perfect, more often failing to catch its prey) Take this scene out, and you have a slightly under-running episode (perhaps the reason for it's inclusion?) - but it doesn't feel under-running - it feels perfect! It's fabulous and I want more. Thanks Steven. Ignore my criticism, ignore everyone's. Cherry pick the positives - be inspired - write more!! (perhaps stay off the wine too?)
