While some preferred Bill’s ransacking of the wardrobe.

Not to mention the Doctor’s own sartorial selection…
Capaldi needs to rock that top hat for the rest of his life omg. #DoctorWho

His handling of the rubber fish left a few people cold.

But others saw it as a callback.

Unlike the Doctor’s newfound aversion to tattoos…
Your 3rd incarnation had a tattoo, Doctor. #DoctorWho

Though, given what happened in Sarah Dollard’s previous episode, maybe it’s not surprising…

A lot of people were reminded of the Eleventh Doctor’s whale of a tale.
The choices in this episode remind me of the ones within the Star Whale episode. The Beast Below. #DoctorWho

Or other influences…
Knowing nod to conventions of Victorian novels; like all of them, tonight's #DoctorWho ends with a happy–if unlikely–inheritence.

Many appreciated how the episode dealt with race…
"history is a whitewash" TRUE #DoctorWho
— aries (@pkchnyI) April 29, 2017
When one episode of #DoctorWho set in Regency Britain is more racially diverse than any period drama shown on TV…
— Sinead (@ShinnyShinyKey) April 29, 2017
The Doctor punched a human for being racist to Bill, FANTASTIC #DoctorWho ?

While others felt it went too far…
Some risqué dialogue choices got a laugh…
"No sh-!" Bill Potts, Doctor Who

And Dollard’s highly-quotable script got highly-quoted.
"Human progress isn't measure by industry. It's measured by the value you place on a life." #DoctorWho
