Your views on everything going on in the hectic world of Doctor Who...

As this issue went to press, viewers were still reeling from the shocking events of Face the Raven. More of that later... but first, your reactions to Peter Harness and Steven Moffat’s recent two-parter, The Zygon Invasion/The Zygon Inversion...

After the Invasion

NATHAN STONEROCK EMAIL

There are a lot of things to like about The Zygon Invasion/The Zygon Inversion. Five rounds rapid. Peter Capaldi’s dazzling smile. The return of Osgood. The evil Clara. But what really makes these two episodes among the best of the season is the scene in the Black Archive. Capaldi’s performance is amazing! He carries the entire scene, and he does it magnificently – it’s a BAFTA-winning performance. I hung on every word, and couldn’t take my eyes off the screen.

PAUL BOWLER EMAIL

Proving itself to be anything but the “same old, same old”, The Zygon Inversion is Doctor Who at its very best, and an exciting and tense conclusion to the two-part story. The taut script by Peter Harness and Steven Moffat skillfully plays on the issues of identity, trust and paranoia, while the story’s deep philosophical core enables director Daniel Nettheim to gradually build this thought-provoking episode to a thrilling conclusion. The Zygon Invasion and The Zygon Inversion have all the hallmarks of classic Doctor Who and is without a doubt one of the best stories from this series so far!

CHUCK HANSEN ILLINOIS, USA

The scenes between Jenna Coleman as Bonnie the Zygon and Jenna Coleman as Clara are some of the most intense, suspenseful, distressing and humorous moments ever featured in Doctor Who in its 52-year history. To carry this one-on-one confrontation of two so-differing personalities, allowing the viewer to become effortlessly absorbed in the moment – completely oblivious that the same person is portraying both roles – is proof of what an incredible, brilliant and mesmerising actor Jenna Coleman is. While I will miss her greatly in my favourite television series, I know it won’t be long until I see Jenna Coleman on screen again, be it on television or in the cinema. My best wishes for her continued success and a thank-you to her for her time and presence on Doctor Who.
