    Great read Patrick. 7/10 isn’t a bad score. People these days seem to think so. I won’t watch anything under a 6/10. That I consider rubbish.

    7/10 means I can watch it again and again and again and never get bored. Indeed, of the five episodes we’ve had, I watched Time Heist the most (five times coincidentally). It’s one of those rare episodes that has a constant value that won’t change no matter how many times you watch.

    Unlike Blink and Listen which are both fantastic, their values tend to decrease the more they are watched (which is why I don’t watch them that often, maybe once a year) because that’s just the type of story they are.

      Huh I never thought about it like that.

        A true 10/10 is something which is so good, I can’t bare to watch it too often or risk ruining the magic of it.

          That explains why I haven’t gone back and watch Listen yet.

      Ta, Gustaff! I appreciate it.

      Time Heist is a bloody good rollercoaster of an episode but in no ways perfect.

        Agreed!

    Excellent review Mark. I gave it a 7/10 myself, a good episode but kinda a downgrade after last weeks masterpiece .

      Thank you. I really enjoyed Time Heist but there were a multitude of rather irritating plot-holes hence such a low mark. Still, it’s one of my favourites of series 8 purely because of the entertainment factor (similar to the riotous Robot of Sherwood).

      And I’m not Mark.
