Plane of Terror (Deepening “Flatline”)

Plane of Terror (Deepening “Flatline”)

Being the Doctor is a tough job, but when he’s unavailable, few are better qualified to fill in for him than Clara Oswald. Flatline’s clever script thrusts her into the position after the Doctor is trapped in the TARDIS by one of the most ingenious monsters of the series, a group of silent two-dimensional invaders the Doctor names the Boneless. Building on its intriguing role reversal, Flatline is a suspenseful thriller packed full of smart visual gags, an excellent guest cast, and pertinent themes of urban art. Plus it delivers one of the most spine-tingling climaxes in the show’s history. How come no one talks about it?

Commentary for Flatline begins at 36:51.
