Once I’ve stopped hyperventilating, we’ll talk about that series finale!
That’s better. Now, there’s a lot to unpack in this episode and for that you can see our review of ‘The Doctor Falls’ here. But we want to know what you think. So, for the last time this side of Christmas, let’s fall into Twitter and see what you all stood for.
Nick Briggs invades the BBC continuity announcer booth…
that link was genius #DoctorWho

Old Mondasian had a farm…
Well yes Welcome to Nightmare Fuel Farm. Home of the Scarecrows that want you dead. #DoctorWho
— Bec Heim (@Bec_Heim) July 2, 2017
Why is it now on a farm?
Was the cyber man war with John Simm being a campy Bond villain not enough?! #DoctorWho
— Scott (@DanishInsurance) July 1, 2017
What do they EAT on that farm? #DoctorWho

Back at the machine wars, the music got some motors running…
THE GALLIFREY MUSIC ??? #DoctorWho
— Beth (@WarningAFanGirl) July 1, 2017
Can we just appreciate this is gallifrey playing in the background #doctorwho
— lucy ? (@TAVlDDENNANT) July 1, 2017
Uh, I don't trust those scarecrows one bit. This music is too happy for #Doctorwho
— April (@AprilBee93) July 2, 2017
And the award for the most intrusive and over-loud music in a TV programme goes to… #DoctorWho
— Nigel Wallis (@Mole_9) July 1, 2017
As did the Mr and Mrs Master’s new toys…
Omg John Simm just got out his old laser screwdriver!!!!#DoctorWho
— Bobbie ? (@LostInYouth_x) July 1, 2017
Oh she has a sonic umbrella? That's a bit rubbish ?? #DoctorWho
— Dan Baynham (@Dan_Baynham95) July 1, 2017
The sonic umbrella is my new religion#doctorwho
— Francesca. (@blvackthorn) July 1, 2017
But nobody liked them picking on poor Nardy…
That Master/Missy/Nardole interaction was my fave of the season #DoctorWho
— Connor Mountford (@FilmAndTVNerd) July 1, 2017
Meanwhile, the old Cybermen have learnt a new trick.
So…the Cybermen shoot laser beams from their heads? Dr. Evil would be proud. #DoctorWho
— Gabe Iglesia (@GabeIglesia) July 1, 2017
Back on the farm, people were confused by Bill’s sudden rehumanisation.
wait why does bill look like a human again #DoctorWho
— kelly (@villinelle) July 1, 2017
No no no. Why do people have to keep being magically resurrected in this show!? #DoctorWho
— Lola Olutola (@LolaOlutola) July 1, 2017
Will Moffett have the bottle to actually kill a character. Doubtful given the past 10 years… #DoctorWho
— Adam Wrong (@adamjonesio) July 1, 2017
But soon everyone got the picture…
You'd frighten the children? Poor Cyber-Bill #DoctorWho
— Queen Cersei I, Mistress of Wine, Stable Genius… (@NiceQueenCersei) July 1, 2017
No wait, she's still a Cyberman. Ah of course, Cybermen can't act, need to get Pearl back to do some acting. #DoctorWho
— Bedwyr Gullidge (@BedwyrG) July 1, 2017
Bloody hell that Cyberman shadow creeped me right out ? #DoctorWho
— Beatrice (@Poppet_B123) July 1, 2017
Maybe she wasn't fully converted, I mean if her head is there maybe the Doctor CAN give her a Nardole style robo-body #DoctorWho
— Paul (@ATargaryenKing) July 1, 2017
While The Master had a laser screwdriver in his pocket…
Of course the Master wants to make out with him/herself – that's entirely in character! #DoctorWho
— S (@BlueMonkey19) July 1, 2017
#DoctorWho low-key shipping the Master and Missy
— Carrie ?️? (@toolsofdestiny) July 1, 2017
The Master and Missy had stupidly good chemistry. Really strange to be rooting for a character to get with.. themself #doctorwho
— Francesca McEvoy (@F_McEvoy) July 1, 2017
Older John Simm Master is much better than "Harold Saxon" era Simm's Master. Proper chilling villain! #DoctorWho
— Valery North: Writer, antifa and nobody's bot! (@ValeryNorth) July 1, 2017
Or is that just his guyliner?
Love The Master already practicing his makeup #DoctorWho
— CunningSmile (@CunningSmi1e) July 1, 2017
The Master is putting eyeliner on ?? #DoctorWho

But even the questionable day-for-night filming…
Blue cellophane over the lens time #DoctorWho
— Will Howells: Purveyor of Extra Facts™️ (@willhowells) July 1, 2017
Didn’t diminish the best Capaldi speech ever!
Sobbing at Capaldi's big speech ? #doctorwho
— Laura ???? (@uisgebeatha) July 1, 2017
Capaldi is the best actor ever to play the Doctor. Fact. #DoctorWho
— Lee (@Lee_JM75) July 1, 2017
— Kate (@jokerunning) July 1, 2017
Or Matt Lucas’ farewells…
Gutted to see Nardole leave ? #DoctorWho
— anna ?? (@annaxmufc) July 1, 2017
— Felix O'Kelly (@CallidusDominus) July 1, 2017
Or the mutual Master backstabbings.
The best thing about Missy is the malevolent Mary Poppins vibe. #DoctorWho
— Steve Brooks (@SteveBrooks13) July 1, 2017
'I loved being you' isn't that what the Tenth Doctor said to the Fifth? #DoctorWho
— Nicola Boden (@04nbod) July 1, 2017
NEVER TRUST A HUG #DoctorWho
— ano (@madameculebra) July 1, 2017
All the tragic evil laughing there #DoctorWho
— Toria aka Tee (@toria_noad) July 1, 2017
SHE DIDN'T GET TO SAY GOODBYE THE LAST THING HE REMEMBERS OF HER IS HER REJECTING THE OPPORTUNITY TO STAND WITH HIM #DoctorWho ??

Let Cybermen battle commence!
I also massively rate the 'Gaiman' Cybermen – those and the Mondas ones can stay. The Cybus ones…on yer cyberbikes. #DoctorWho
— Martin Parsons (@martang66) July 1, 2017
As an avid eater of apples on the move, I guess I'll have to be more careful from now on… #DoctorWho
— David Murphy (@D1Smurphy) July 1, 2017
where are my 2006 cybermen at >:( #DoctorWho
— camamamam (@InAnotherNow) July 1, 2017
A lone Cyberman emerges through the rubble.
Bill sobbing over the Doctor's body has absolutely DESTROYED me ??? #DoctorWho
— katie (@Kaaaaatie_x) July 1, 2017
And is greeted by an old friend.
Oh my god. All this time – star in her eye girl was here to save Bill! Oh my god. #DoctorWho
— Tom Gardiner (@TomGardinerUK) July 1, 2017
A puddle just kissed a Cyberman #DoctorWho
— Macauly (@MacaulyCairns) July 1, 2017
Ah. I had a feeling this might be Bill's fate. I am glad. #DoctorWho
— Graeme Lyon (@GraemeMLyon) July 1, 2017
Although… what about Bill's foster mother? What about her life? Her friends? The girl she was kind-of-dating? #DoctorWho
— ? Iz (@mickroryed) July 1, 2017
So glad Bill wasn't returned to being a human and got to live in a lovely ending, she deserves to live on…
— James (@james_blowers_) July 1, 2017
Time for the Doctor Thirteen? Well, not quite.
It's just hit me. I really don't want him to go. #DoctorWho
— Liam Duke (@DukeOfSwindon) July 1, 2017

— Hals ⚡️ (@HalsMalsTS7) July 1, 2017
#DoctorWho It's entirely possible that David Bradley appearing was the best thing about that finale. But it's a close one.
— Natalie Hogg (@astronat) July 1, 2017
— Lewis Harvey (@MrLFHarvey) July 1, 2017
INTRODUCING DAVID BRADLEY asBILL.
— Paul Kirkley (@prkirkley) July 1, 2017
So it’s safe to say ‘The Doctor Falls’ lived up to the hype.
That was beautiful. That was one of the most beautiful episodes of Doctor Who I have ever witnessed. Just… beyond words. #DoctorWho
— Dominic G. Martin (@DominicJGM) July 1, 2017
That was #DoctorWho at its very best and also, in places, at its worst too
— Sam Wilson (@MrSamWilson) July 1, 2017
The Doctor Falls: Hmm, not sure what to think. There's stuff I like, there's stuff that wasdoesn't work. Need to think on it. #DoctorWho
— Nathan Snyder (@nateallensnyde) July 2, 2017
We’ll be back at Christmas with Twitter reactions to the Christmas special. But, for now, I’ll leave you with the meatspace reactions I captured of the David Bradley reveal.
