The Almost People Hints

Hello. SFX recently released 23 teasers and hints for the upcoming episode the Almost People, penned by Matthew Graham. Some of them can be related to in the trailer and one in particular was pointed out months ago by Steven Moffat himself. So let's take a look (WARNING: may contain spoilers):

1. It’s a compelling, solid action/adventure episode, with a few irritating moments that don’t quite gel and some lapses in logic. If anything, it feels a little small scale and never really steps up a gear to a level you’d expect from a two-parter, but at least that means it can deal with its themes a little more thoroughly and concentrate on the characters.

2. The denoument is character based rather than technobabble based.

3. The last couple of  minutes are riveting.

4. The Doctor has a great John Culshaw moment.

5. There’s some new footage – not just “story so far” clips – before the opening credits.

6. Random words from the script: “Breathe” “Yowzer” “Mirage” “Bad boy” “Bisucuits” “Burnt onions” “Pop”.

7. There’s a very Dali moment.

8. The Doctor appeals to someone’s better nature.

9. Rory makes a mistake.

10. There’s a lovely reference back to “The Doctor’s Wife”.

11. The Doctor is very scary at a couple of points.

12. Amy voices something that may have been on the viewers’ minds if they’ve been following the series.

13. The theme of prejudice and the nature of the Gangers are explored in a number of effective dialogue exchanges.

14. The Doctor once won a bet in a very unusual fashion.

15. The Doctor asks Amy to do something he also asked her to do in the last series.

16. Some waste product has a profound affect on Rory.

17. There are some very icky FX.

18. Somebody has a big mouth.

19. The music at one point is very Blade Runner.

20. The TARDIS makes a very unusual landing.

21. By the end of the episode you be left trying to work out when something that clearly happened actually happened.

22. There’s a very random balloon.

23. The TARDIS is better medically equipped than in “Curse Of The Black Spot”..
