Razor's room is reminiscent of the BBC's Radiophonic Workshop of the 1960s, at least as recreated in Cardiff's 'The Doctor Who Experience', where the groundbreaking and iconic electronic theme music was created. See more »


When Bill arrives on floor 1056, it is shown that the time on floor 0 is 2 days, 10 hours, 45 minutes and 17 seconds. Later on, the time on floor 0 is shown to be 17 seconds earlier than when Bill arrived, despite time having evidently advanced on both floors. See more »


Bill: Yeah, but he's called 'The Doctor,' so...
Missy: [explaining to Bill] Well, he says. 'I'm "The Doctor,"' and they say, 'Doctor who?' See, I'm cutting to the chase, baby. I'm streamlinin'. I'm saving us ac-tu-al mi-nutes.

World Enough and Time - a superb beginning of the end
24 June 2017 | by davidheriot-04195See all my reviews

Simply one of the finest episodes in Doctor Who's history. It contains some of the finest acting by all major characters involved, especially Michelle Gomez, Pearl Mackie and the wonderful Peter Capaldi.

The episode, to put it simply, both begins and ends with surprises. It maintains the best quality throughout, and despite Moffat's perhaps-controversial past with some stories and finales under his tenure as showrunner, he is certainly going to end that role on a high.

The entire of series 10 has, so far, been a pleasure to watch and this episode is clearly a symbol of such success. The pacing was perfect, the direction by Rachel Talalay was beautiful and the music by Murray Gold was just sublime.

I certainly hope that, with such a great beginning to the 2-parter finale, the end of series 10 encapsulates all that is fantastic about Doctor Who.
