In my “rewatch” I've finally reached the bit of Doctor Who where I stopped watching in the past (series nine, Capaldi's second season).

“Heaven Sent” is actually pretty good. Like kinda I-want-to-watch-that-again-immediately good. Capaldi really hit his stride.


I also liked “Face The Raven,” the episode leading up to it. Love a narrative that starts as a romp and takes a dark turn.

It's tricky to execute—it needs to be properly but unaggressively foreshadowed. It should feel earned, but still pack an emotional punch. I felt that.

Tbh, a lot of credit due to how Maisie Williams played the scene.
