Oh she was amazing. I don't mean she was wasted in the role as she played it well but I just feel like she could have been a contender for a female doctor had she not been attached to the series so close to the casting.

I also would have loved to see Suranne Jones play the doctor. It feels like a face he would have chosen as the first female incarnation for a long time due to the personal story behind it.

They just become another alien species out to kill. Although I liked Bob. Bob deserves all the recognition .
Yes. I liked the whole aspect of Amy having to keep her eyes shut and feel that added well to the lore and being a counterplay to 'dont blink' but it was the whole snapping necks thing that lost me. For an entity who 'kill' in such an easy way to have to resort to physical violence cheapened them for me a bit.
... in my opinion.
