“Is this all there really is to life?” A simple question that has driven mankind’s curiosity, scientific research, and religious fervor since the dawn of time. And in all this time, there is still no definitive answer. So what might happen when, just for a hypothetical case, your girlfriend confesses her deepest love to you on the phone, catching you so off guard that you wander into the street and, say, get hit by a car?
This week, we discuss the penultimate episode in Series 8, Dark Water. With Clara in a unbearably distraught mess of an emotional state, the Doctor agrees to go in search of her lost love, only to finally come face to face with the mysterious Missy character who had been lurking in the shadows. Her true nature (and identity) are finally revealed, shocking us all and erupting into a Moffat-sized basket of resulting questions. Oh, and one minor line-item to leave for next week’s agenda: the Cybermen are invading London. Cheers!
