Call us the Twitfinder General since we’ve got more of your Twitter reactions to episode eight – The Witchfinders.
Everyone’s favourite brilliant barmy aunt, Katy Manning, has spoken.
Well my darling tweetie peaches I am still a very happy sofa viewer of #Doctorwho really enjoyed it on several levels ! ??

After the strong response to last week’s episode Kerblam! people weren’t sure what to expect.
I do believe #DoctorWho turned a new leaf and hit a series high last week with Kerblam! So I've got fingers crossed it isn't falling back into previous tropes.
Oh joy, witch doctors and highwaymen. Release the plague!

Last week I got Taylorism in space – this evening witches in Lancashire. The new Dr is fab. #DoctorWho

Honestly just really happy that after last week’s #DoctorWho the Doctor didn’t come out in favour of Witch Trials.

Hail to the King
Enter Alan Cumming clearly relishing his role as King James.

Alan Cumming was my favourite part of that episode. I haven’t seen such hungry scene-chewing in ages. #DoctorWho
— Toby (@Tobiiiaaas) November 25, 2018
Enjoyed #DoctorWho. Just a shame there was no scenery left by the time Alan Cumming had finished with it… ?

True Knowledge Has to be Earned
The Doctor sparring against King James had Twitter alight.
Jodie absolutely shone in #DoctorWho tonight. Her interaction with James I was some of the finest stuff we’ve seen this series. And her speech about knowledge? Her best moment as the Doctor so far. Incredible. pic.twitter.com/Ev5qKZgKDE

Number 13 has hit her stride now, with full-on Doctor's speech. The kids and I are loving the new series.#doctorwho

Enjoyed Alan Cumming’s take on James VI and I on #doctorwho just now. But have they forgotten the Doctor was once married to the woman who killed his mother?

Lights, Camera, Ehhhction
Not everyone was spellbound by the pacing.
Tied in chains, dunked into a lake, the Doctor reappears…on the otherside of the lake… Why shouldnt she appear on top of a tree? Or behind the crowd? New season is enjoyable but lacks…flare? Focus definitely isnt on action #DoctorWho

I thought the pacing in the Witchfinders was at times slow. The monsters were meh but I liked their design. I like Ryan's rapport with King James and again Graham is one of the highlights. I really enjoyed Jodie Whittaker's performance in this episode.#DoctorWho

What a story! Aside from the very slow first act, #DoctorWho The Witchfinders was a thumping good episode! From the moment the Doctor got accused of being a witch, things really kicked off. Some of the finest moments of the series in this one? Solid work once again? pic.twitter.com/cdXpcPa4UQ

Could it be…
If this tied back to The Satan Pit and we learnt 13 trapped him down there, THEN we’d have a story! #DoctorWho
— Neil Whelan (@NeilWhelan) November 25, 2018
Did someone have a bet on how many times you could get 'Satan' into a single script? #DoctorWho
— Josh Scully (@Josh_Scully) November 25, 2018
Fun game: Take a shot everytime the word 'Satan' is used in the #DoctorWho Episode The Witchfinders
— Tatsuya Suou (@DCHE44) November 25, 2018
With all the Satan references on #DoctorWho tonight, I thought she would have mentioned that time she ACTUALLY MET SATAN
Seriously tho. It was a good ep pic.twitter.com/O9sYgQZiFS

Dunking on the Doctor
You knew it was coming.
Well that was a good episode, but didn't grab me as much as the previous two. Seemed much shorter/weaker finish. Jodie was the stand-out actor in this one for me, although Alan was delightfully annoying as King James. Favourite scene was the dunking! #DoctorWho #TheWitchfinders
— Jess (@Whoscaper) November 25, 2018
Well that was pretty good. I think we got a great defining Doctor moment there when the Doctor jumped in after the witch trial dunking at the beginning hoping to save her and returned with the woman's dead body. #DoctorWho

i want to know what the doctors wet weekend with houdini was #doctorwho

Absolutely loved that episode of #DoctorWho. As someone who finds the Witch trials hysteria a fascinating part of history I loved how it tied in with Pendle Hill! The monsters were very creepy and the cast were great! A great story that I’ll look forward to watching again! pic.twitter.com/1aIyJRrOIx

Really loved this one, was a really good take on the dunking of witches with a really good alien twist. Loved the addition of King James (Alan Cumming), the historical episodes are just the best this series.
8.5/10, Loved it.#DoctorWho
