Glad to have new Who; I love the companion mix; but a lot of things felt rushed or weird to me and my fam:
MI6 acting like aliens were strange/distasteful/beneath them, at this point, was odd. The whole world knows about aliens after Downing Street/daleks/etc. If you're not going to fund Unit or Torchwood, then deal with it. Also get bulletproof glass. Waste of Stephen Fry.
I was spoiled that there would be some master reveal, and saw it coming; Compared to the subtle dance that the missy intro was, this felt off. The doctor should have reacted differently, based on how it ended with Missy.
Pandison immediately thought this was a post-simms Master, not a most-missy master. Rest of Pandifam agreed. Yet if so, how did this master recognize this doctor? and Vice Versa?
The whole plane scene: this is a dream right? mind control? because things are blipping in and out (how did barton escape the plane) and suddenly ryan can fly it?
We all agreed we needed a "previously on" segment.
