* "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS36E1ThePilot The Pilot]]"
** Subtle, but Bill's pretty sad Christmas after she gets both the Doctor and her foster mother presents. The Doctor guiltily realises he hadn't gotten her anything (at first) and her foster mother only gave her a bit of money. Bill casually brushes both off by saying the gifts weren't expensive anyway, but it comes off as Bill being used to being taken for granted and not getting much herself. Followed by another TearJerker in the cut between Bill finding the box of pictures of her [[MissingMom biological mother]] and her ''sobbing'' on her bed as she finally got to see what she looked like. Bill had always had to make things up about her mother because she died when Bill was a baby and Bill didn't know much about her, not even having any pictures of growing up because her mum had hated getting her picture taken. Also a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming because the Doctor had gone back in time to get those pictures for Bill as a Christmas present -- though obviously not one he can (yet) tell her he'd gotten her.
** TheReveal of why the Pilot is chasing Bill across time and space in the first place: [[spoiler:Heather's promise not to leave without Bill was her last thought alive before she was absorbed by the oil and became the Pilot. She is driven to fulfill her promise to the girl she had a crush on. Bill releases her from her promise, but admits she really liked her and Pilot Heather whispers the same back, not a reflection but a sad affirmation of shared feelings]]. It does end on a more hopeful note, though: [[spoiler:when offering to take Bill along in the TARDIS, the Doctor says they might even meet Heather again somewhere in time and space, something Bill had asked about earlier]].
** Her MissingMom situation and shrugging off getting the short-stick at Christmas after her own generoisty to others suggested Bill was somewhat of a StepfordSmiler as it was, but her begging the Doctor to let her remember the events of the episode -- increasingly desperately bargaining to keep her memories for just a week, then just a day, then finally just one night -- cements it. Even though she lost a girl she'd had feelings for, she badly wants to hold onto it because it was the only exciting thing to happen to her in her life.
--> '''Bill:''' Let me have some good dreams for once.

** Ever dreamed of something you didn't have, a dream so real you were sure it couldn't be a dream? A dream so real you checked ''in the dream'' if it was really happening?

** The scene with Sylvia in the kitchen: The look on her face shows that recent events have left her utterly broken and devoid of hope. Making things worse she has no problem admitting she thinks Donna is a 'disappointment' to her. Despair or not, that must have been brutal for Donna to hear.

** When the Doctor goes to enter the booth and save Wilf at the cost of his own life, Wilf breaks down to the verge of tears and begs the Doctor not to do it. Bernard Cribbins will break your heart in that scene.

** The fact that Missy is ''right''. She and the Doctor ''are'', in whatever sort of twisted way it is, friends. They've known each other the longest, they know the truth of who they are - they know the ''real'' person behind the names and masks of The Doctor and The Master/Mistress - and this means that they don't have to lie to one another like they do to the rest of the Universe; the Doctor sends his confession dial to her because he knows that Missy would find the universe ''extremely'' boring if he was gone - The Master said so himself in ''The Five Doctors''. Notice how Missy doesn't try to ever kill Twelve; Clara and Davros, yes, but ''not'' Twelve. Missy is proven right due to events -- the Doctor sends her his confession dial, they both understand the truth about the gravity on the "hospital", they play off one another like repelling and attracting magnets with the Universe as their cosmic and eternal playground and he later lets Missy run away and escape rather than killing her and imprisoning her -- and it's a tearjerker as the Doctor's best and truest friend is a megalomaniacal psychopathic woman/man who is basically what he would be if he didn't have his rules, what he almost becomes in ''The Waters Of Mars''.
