Moffat-Era Tropes: Medical nanobots (or nanopeople and antibodies, here). Ripping off the Troughton Era (here, “The Evil of the Daleks”). Giving a Dalek or Cyberman a cutesy nickname. The Doctor and companion sliding into a creature's digestive system. Clara talks the Doctor out of a destructive frame of mind. The Doctor defeats something by talking at it, and has a big exultant speech about how beautiful and wonderful the universe is.
|The last time someone put a human in|
a Dalek it did not end well.
A Thing in a Thing: A group of humans in a Dalek.
The Doctor is A: Good Dalek.
The Master Is A: Tea-drinker and baking enthusiast.
Clara Lies About: She's actually honest this episode. Enjoy it, it won't last.
Reasons Clara Should Drop Danny Like A Hot Potato: He's only just appeared, and he's already showing his colours as a passive-aggressive type who's got way too many ambivalent issues about his military career.
Child Count: Between 13 and 41 (we see 10 in the cadets' corps, 3 hanging around the school office, 16 in Danny's classroom, 4 in the corridor before Clara goes into the Tardis, and 8 when she emerges, but it's unclear how much crossover there is between the groups).
The Thick of It: “Am I a good man?” Possibly not.
It's Actually About: How hating something evil, doesn't make you good.
