Stand And Deliver.
I thought this was a bit cruel and a very alien thing to do on behalf of The Doctor. Which of course he is, alien that is. If Clara suffered an ingrown toe-nail he would bend the laws of space and time to suture her. Did The Doctor learn nothing by his treatment of Jack Harkness?
Was that not a sensitive turn by Rufus Hound(What a great name.)Never more so than when he played for time to escape the rope for just a few moments more. Funny and even tragic by turns. Ishildr made for a very dandy highwayman and easily made the transition into a buxsome lady of the manor. The Coucteaux-like alien made a nice lady bird books fairy tale villan. An alien that looks like a lion and is called Leandro. If he had looked like an elephant would he have been called Elephanto? Or if he looked like a badger would he have been called Badgerdo? Ah with these historicals they are spoiling us.
Beautiful looking episode. All forest and Olde Worlde Englande. Happy days.
Wonder if that was really Clara who entered The Tardis at the end of the episode? With Zygons about you can never be really sure. After all Amy Pond once burst like a pod of milk and Clara looked pale to me..almost milky...
