Listen. Nothing. There's nothing to hear. There's nothing anywhere. Not a breath, not a slither, not a click or a tick. All the clocks have stopped. This is the silence at the end of time.

Listen is the fourth episode of the eighth series of Doctor Who written by Morefart. It gave viewers their first view of the Doctor as a child and revealed Pancakes is his mother. Stars Parachute Capaldeath, Jenna Coalman and Samuel Andersplink.


Twelvey and Pancakes travel back in time to peg Danny Splink as a child. Also everyone has the same dream. And the Doctor grew up sleeping in the same barn the War Doctor later fucked Billie Piper in. It's the first non-archival appearance of the First Doctor (well... the "First Doctor") since The Five Doctors in 1983, though it's mostly a shot of a foot.


Pretty damn good. Capaldi is especially awesome. Autists who can't bear things being unexplained were buttflustered, and people who hate Clara for being too important were trolled. Bravo Moffuck.


Question: why do we talk out loud when we know we're alone? Conjecture: because we know we're not. Evolution perfects survival skills. There are perfect hunters. There is perfect defense. Question: why is there no such thing as perfect hiding? Answer: how would you know? Logically, if evolution were to perfect a creature whose primary skill were to hide from view, how could you know it existed? It could be with us every second and we would never know. How would you detect it? Even sense it? Except in those moments when for no clear reason, you choose to speak aloud. What would such a creature want? What would it do? WELL? WHAT WOULD YA DO!? - Twelve going mental.

Let me tell you about scared. Your heart is beating so hard I can feel it through your hands. There's so much blood and oxygen pumping through your brain it's like rocket fuel. Right now you could run faster and you could fight harder, you could jump higher than ever in your life. And you are so alert it's like you can slow down time. What's wrong with scared? Scared is a superpower. It's your superpower. There is danger in this room and guess what? It's you. Do you feel it? - Rupert Pink meets Jimmy Savile.
