So there we are, that was the one hour long series finale. Missy is The Master, and she was using cyber technology to create a new army with which to conquer the galaxy. She eventually passes control of the army to The Doctor, messing with his head (my favourite bit of this particular episode).
I really enjoyed this and Michelle Gomez has been great. I hope she shows up as The Master again in future. Though I am miffed we didn’t find out how she gender-switched. A satisfactory conclusion, but unlike other season finales this one did not set me ablaze.
What are your closing thoughts on the finale or the series as a whole?
For me, Capaldi has been great. Clara has been great (but I won’t miss her). Their relationship has been great. Gomez was brilliant. I think the stories has been a little thin and recycled. I felt all the familiarity should have led to something – such as making such a big deal of “why this face?” in the opening episode. Or perhaps they were merely hints of a returning villain.
