Plenty was implausible about this episode – and this is Doctor Who, so that’s saying a lot! But seriously:
- Single-celled bacteria with eyes, mouths, and legs
- The entire world turning off their lights, when a) only half of the world is in night b) few would have received the broadcast in that time and c) no way they would all agree anyway
- Newborn moon dragon (so cool!!!) immediately laying an egg bigger than its whole body
That’s just off the top of my head, and it’s three in the morning so the top of my head is not worth much.
But still it was a really cool episode. I’m really liking the character stuff, and the ambiguity. Good guy/bad guy? Is Clara overreacting or is the Doctor a jerk? or both? Loving Danny and Courtney. Wishing for a First Doctor-style foursome in the TARDIS. Not expecting it.
