I really liked this episode when I first finished watching it, but after giving it some time to ricochet around in my head, it started to fall apart a bit for me as a fully executed story.
Trivia: When Clara meets the girl from the bookcover, Summers Falls, the writer is Amelia Williams.
Paul: Is it an evil spirit?
The Doctor: It's a woman. (Paul crosses himself)
Clara: Who are you?
The Doctor: The Doctor. No? The Doctor?
Clara: Doctor who?
The Doctor: Who. Just the Doctor. Actually, sorry, could you just ask me that again?
Clara: Could I what?
The Doctor: Could you just ask me that question?
Clara: Doctor who?
The Doctor: Okay, just once more.
Clara: Doctor who?
The Doctor: Oooh, yeah. Oooh. Do you know, I never realized how much I enjoy hearing that said out loud. Thank you.
Kizlet: I'm ever so fond of Alexei, but my conscience says that we should probably kill him.
Mahler: I'll inform HR.
Kizlet: Actually, he's about to go on holiday. Kill him when he gets back. Let's not be unreasonable.
Clara: How'd you get here so fast?
The Doctor: I just happened to be in the neighborhood on my mobile phone.
Clara: When you say "mobile phone," why do you point at that blue box?
The Doctor: Because it's a surprisingly accurate description.
The Doctor: Right! Don't be a monk. Monks are not cool!
The Doctor: It's something in the Wi-Fi.
The Doctor: This whole world is swimming in Wi-Fi. We're living in a Wi-Fi soup. Suppose something got inside it. Suppose there was something living in the Wi-Fi, harvesting human minds. Extracting them. Imagine that. Human souls trapped like flies in the Worldwide Web. Stuck forever. Crying out for help.
Clara: Isn't that basically Twitter?
Clara: What is going on? Is this real? Please tell me what is happening?
The Doctor: I'm the Doctor, I'm an alien from outer space. I'm a thousand years old, I've got two hearts, and I can't fly a plane! Can you?
The Doctor: Ooh, fine. Well, let's do it together.
Clara: Okay, are you going to explain to me what the hell's going on?
The Doctor: It's breakfast.
Clara: What? I ain't waiting until breakfast.
The Doctor: It's a time machine. You never have to wait for breakfast.
Clara: So what happens if you do find them? What happens then?
The Doctor: I don't know. I can't tell the future, I just work there.
Clara: You don't have a plan?
The Doctor: Oh, you know what I always say about plans.
The Doctor: I don't have one.
Clara: I have insane hacking skills.
The Doctor: I'm from space, and the future, with two hearts and... 27 brains.
Kizlet: The people of this world are in no danger whatsoever. My client requires a steady diet of living human minds. Healthy, free-range human minds. He loves and cares for humanity. In fact, he can't get enough of it.
The Doctor: It's obscene. It's murder.
Kizlet: The abattoir is not a contradiction--no one loves cattle like Burger King.
After the TARDIS appears on the Southbank, and the Doctor collects tips for their breakfast, the villains detect it. The supervisor asks "Are we sure this time? Earl's Court was an embarrassment!" There actually is a police box outside of the Earl's Court tube station. If you go on Google maps for the Earl's Court Tube Station and find the Blue box and click on it., You will be taken inside to find the TARDIS. You may have to try a few different positions.
Injoke: Among the staff files that Clara brings up are Amy Pickwoad (standby art director), Adrian Greenwood (production buyer), Christina Tom (graphic artist), and Sam(antha) Price (production assistant)
