Is he actually called "the professor" anywhere? The Doctor introduces him as Major Alec Palmer.

Am I the only one thinking that Alec Palmer talking about his motives and past to the Doctor could be seen as a Not So Different moment ?

Call Back or Continuity Nod or whatever... at any rate, I'm pretty sure that the Tardis' Cloister Bell went off when The Doctor got stuck in a pocket universe and nearly wrote himself out of existence.

Also, the Tardis definitely seemed to get more of a character in this episode. Anthropomorphism? Is that a word? It that *the* word?

That is indeed the appropriate word.

Speaking of that, is not that one of the first times the TARDIS seems to be flying by herself ? Clara certainly was not piloting her when they went to the pocket dimension.

Caliburn. Is it just me or are Andrew Hussie and whoever wrote this episode in cahoots?

No. Caliburn is an old Welsh name for a mythical sword, probably the origin of Excalibur. It's an entirely reasonable name for an English house.

I know. I was joking. I was actually on vacation in Wales and learned how to pronounce the sword's Welsh name, Caledfwlch. Hence the joke.
