    Did any one watch Deep Breath before watching Oxygen? No? Oh well. Was it a heady aroma or a stinking waste? Tell us!

    In space, no-one can hear the zombie apocalypse.

    Absolutely outstanding, still waiting for our first duffer this year!

    I've given it a lower score, but that's because I'm being a bit more discerning. The best might still be yet to come.

    Chilling, scary and breath taking!

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.

    Very, very good! Lot of tension, stunning visuals and one of the New Series more intriguing cliffhangers.

    I was worried it was going to be a bit dull early on... I was (of course) wrong. And what a cliffhanger.

    I've really enjoyed watching that episode. It's been a bumper season so far and it doesn't look like it will be letting up any time soon. That was a creepy and well thought out storyline

    Hurrah. It's certainly the best "Space Suit" story we've had in ages (thinking 42, Waters of Mars, Kill The Moon etc) though where was the Sanctuary Base spacesuit? That one always comes out.

    Absolutely loved that, I want Jamie Mathieson to replace Chris Chibnall as showrunner as soon as possible! It just did Who perfectly, with great supporting characters, Nardole and Bill working together so brilliantly as companions, and I loved the cliffhanger as well. 9/10

    Blinding! As we used to say back in the 90s when I was still a yoof

    So how many episodes do we think they'll maintain the cliffhanger ending for? Will it still be the case by episode 12 of the series that we're still in the same situation? Or does everything change next week?

    I wasn't expecting very much at all as most/all previous stories involving space suits, air locks and so on are dull and unfantastical. However, this was at least a cut above there. It's probably the most realistic (as far as I know, not having been lately) depiction of space in Doctor Who - it looked stunning. The walking suits were very creepy with their corpses joggling around inside, although I would perhaps have preferred some kind of monster and/or villain as it was a story with no enemy really. But that in itself was quite clever, if not as effective.

    Not terrifically convinced by the Doctor being blind as I can't see how we won't be able to do most things the same anyway, being super duper. At least it hasn't been done before.

    This was the weakest story so far for that reason - stock standard zombies/chasing through airlocks type; never did get into zombies. Good of its kind though, goodly amount of tension. As for the blindness, well it'll all be over by Christmas...

    7/10
