As we tie up the fourth instalment of series eight for BBC's Doctor Who, we are once again shown sound reason to proclaim Steve Moffat as Lord of television time-travelling lore. Through the timey-wimey twists and tangles of Moffat's layered writing, we are led on a tight narrative thread, which not only describes the continued character development of companion Clara, but also dives deeply into the deconstruction of the Doctor, which does seem to play a prominent theme in Capaldi's turn in the role. And with this deconstruction, we see the construction of this seasons definitive doctor. Not the quirky and energized persona of Smith's previous carnation, but a more morose man, seasoned and torn from over one thousand years on the battlefields of Trenzelor. The story begins with The Doctor alone and reflective, excitedly describing his most recent musings on monstrous evolution. And what a monster The Doctor has imagined for us. Perhaps the personification of fear itself. Moffat poetically illustrates how he is able to draw upon his warped imagination and skillfully create a monster of the week villain with the same memorable uniqueness, equal to, and arguably more frightening, than previous ghouls like The Weeping Angels and the Confessional Priests from the Order of the Silence. But this time the monster is all the more horrific, because for all intents, the creature doesn't really exist and only takes shape in the viewers imagination and never on screen. The Doctor plays a propelling role to entangle Clara in her own time wise dilemma. In the tone of another of Moffat's most loved master pieces, "Blink", our tale of The Doctor's inner terror is held in place by the gravity of a touching love story generations in the making. As fear is The Doctor's monster of focus, Clara must wrestle her own fear of intimacy by starting to hear Danny Pink as a romantic interest, and by listening to her own inner voice plans a disastrous lunch date. Shortly following the date, a series of TARDIS allowed events let's her see Dan as not only a current love interest, but also a child afraid of what may lie under the bed and a distant relative, whom The Doctor found afraid and alone at the very end of the universe due to his own time travel mishap. But the real twist of this Clara driven drama beats in the hearts of The Doctor and a hidden childhood memory, bringing to life the lonely fear of The Doctor and anyone who dares to silently listen. by John SMITH
