Time Heist is the fifth episode of Series 8 written by Stephen Thompson and Stefan Moffaterino and stars Pastor Capaldi as Twelve and Johnny Coleman as Clara.

Plot

Doctor Who goes Heat. Twelvey and chums decide to rob the Bank of Karabraxos and there's a memory worm or two thrown in. I forgot.

Introduced that woman who everyone confused with Missy, plus some potential companions Psi and Saibra (although they don't perish horrifically IIRC.)

We also get a brief glimpse of Abslom Daak, confirming him 6000% canon.

Reception

Pretty good, need to rewatch.

Waste of potential. We were promised a heist in the most secure space bank in the galaxy so you'd expect some seriously mindblowing shit to go down. What we got was a generic monster of the week episode with running down corridors except in a bank I guess? The twist at the end is decent but not enough to redeem the episode.
