YMMV: Doctor Who S33 E13 "The Name of the Doctor"


  • Expy: The Whisperman were obviously inspired by Slenderman.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The whispermen... yikes!
    • Strax's reversion to his original Sontaran nature was pretty horrifying, considering his normal comedic Boisterous Bruiser persona.
    • When the Paternoster Gang are in a dream seance teleconference with Clara and River, and Jenny realizes first that someone is in the house with her while she's unconcious and helpless, and then that she's been murdered.
  • Special Effects Failure: In the scenes where Clara is superimposed onto Stock Footage of other Doctors, particularly the really early footage, the modern footage of Clara really sticks out.
    • The footage of the Second Doctor running through the park also is noticeably cut-and-pasted.
  • Tear Jerker: A few.
    • The Doctor, trying to remain brave for Clara, but clearly wanting to break down and cry (and, indeed, doing so), in their conversation about Trenzalore.
    • Vastra when Jenny and Strax are dead. Even though it's fairly obvious they will be restored, Neve Mcintosh's performance really sells it.
    • And when the Doctor is on the floor of the dead TARDIS, in pain and murmuring "no, don't". *ugly sobbing noises*
