Overall this was a reasonable episode, but the quality continues to be uneven this season as I didn't find it to be as strong as last week's episode. The elements are there, eg. something mysterious and sinister to be discovered and defeated, some good banter between the Doctor and Bill, and even some general humour. But it didn't quite add up this time around. I'm not sure what it was. The landlord being just a bit too stereotypical? His mother not realising who he was or really being aware of her condition? Who knows.

Anyway, we got to see the Doctor and Bill's relationship continuing to grow. The Doctor also let slide some titbits about his origins before quickly moving on, especially when he (accidentally?) mentioned regeneration. We also saw a bit more of the vault and apparently the Doctor going inside to have dinner with its piano-playing inmate. I feel like we're close to a revelation of who's inside.
