"The Return of Doctor Mysterio", redux

I just wanted to post what my husband said about the episode last night as we were talking about it.

"The more I think about it, the more I think it was a great episode. This probably isn't the best recommendation, but I didn't get angry once through the whole thing! That hasn't happened for two seasons now. This might have been the best episode since Capaldi started. Yeah, I know, Mummy was great, but even with that, oooo, Clara just completely ruined it. Thinking about it still makes me mad now. It could be that this episode was wonderful simply because for the first time, she wasn't there, but I don't think that's the only thing. The Doctor was fantastic. Maybe one of Capaldi's best performances. And that guy, Nardole? He was great! You know, with the new season, we're going to have to go through all of the teaching the companion about the universe, but this guy, he already knows the Doctor and worked with him perfectly. That one line, where he goes, "Oh, that smile! I don't like that smile!" He knows what that smile means. Yeah, the romance plot, that was pretty meh, but the superhero part was fine. Oh, but the Doctor was awesome and it just made the episode. And that Clara wasn't there making it all about her. But the Doctor!"
