We open with reading an email from David about Rachel Talalay's direction and with acknowledging that David Tennant and Billie Piper have returned as the 10th Doctor and Rose. Then we turn our attention to a pair of stories linked by the rather wonderful guest character Rigsy. Allison remembered "Flatline" as just the tiny TARDIS episode, but it's so much weirder and scarier and better than all that. Then we look at "Face The Raven," which keeps seeming like it's going to be whimsical, yet steadfastly refuses to do anything but keep the audience off-kilter. Mostly, we realize these are two of the very best Clara episodes ever, and it forms part of our unplanned Jenna Coleman tribute tour with a lot of the other recent series eight and nine episodes we've discussed. Then join us next week for the start of some yuletide festivities as we look at a pair of Christmas-set, Charles Dickens-centric stories, "The Unquiet Dead" and "A Christmas Carol"!
