In 2049, The Doctor, Clara, and student Courtney Woods find themselves on the moon. Something is horribly wrong. Now, the fate of the moon lies in the hands of Clara Oswald. Destroy it and yourselves to save Earth?, or let it live and risk the ultimate destruction of the Human race?
Peter Harness has said that the episode will see a large change for the show. "I still don't know how people will take it. I'm in this kind of limbo now waiting for people to see it, and I've no idea, really I do not know how it is going to go down." See more »
The moon has no atmosphere. The gravity on the moon is 1 sixth of Earth gravity. See more »
Peter Harness' Doctor Who stories have all been pretty divisive. Kill the Moon and The Zygon Invasion/The Zygon Inversion have all been instant classics for me, though.
Kill the Moon was incredible for many reasons. The Moon being an egg, while not great sci fi, should not be what makes or breaks this episode. Let me say that the acting was impeccable from all of the cast. Jenna Coleman is quickly going from the worst companion in series 7 to one of the best ever. The way she stands up to the Doctor at the end was brilliant. It's excellent characterization- he put her in a position that was life threatening and scary, and she hated that. Capaldi/Coleman already have an amazing dynamic, but this brings it to a whole new level.
The CGI and Directing was also great, and the soundtrack was very tense. I loved how horror-oriented this episode was also. The beginning was terrifying.
I was very impressed by this episode. Who cares if the moon's an egg when the acting and directing has never been better? ]
10+/10. One of the best Doctor Who episodes ever made.
