spoiler alerts If this Peter Capaldi adventure was a stand alone rather than a two parter did we just watch the villain win and effectively destroy the human race? Just exactly how does un-hoovered sleep dust evolve into anything in the space of at the most, a few years? A neat take on found footage stories with a dash of Alien - I would have liked to see more of the grow your own clone-soldier idea but this was pretty good. It finished with the Sandman Rassmussen saying anyone (38th century onwards) watching his video is doomed, in a story with echoes of the Ring horror movies . As the Doctor has left, no one is going to stop him. Interesting absence of opening credits on this episode for its found footage conceit. Arthur Chappell

This was a very strange and bizarre episode, plus a little far fetched even for a science fiction program. Nevertheless, I did watch and enjoy it.

not sure how a show about a time-travelling phone box can get more far fetched

@arthurchappell Most stories do remain feasible despite the variety of creatures or circumstances. There was no substantial argument presented to support the idea of sleep taking life form.

@Asylum I agree with that - it just did implying anything can evolve from anything whenever it wants
