Some very brief thoughts here. I did find it more compelling than last week, but I wonder whether it's the right direction to take.

I was disappointed - the trailer (& Graham Norton clip) had looked so promising for a potentially intelligent horror, but both the horror elements, the science, and even part of the discussion of the morality were so ludicrous that they distracted from what was good (and occasionally even intelligent) about it.

Several people have taken away a strong message about abortion from the episode, which I don't think was intended; and Moffat has apparently placed a rebuttal on a friend's Facebook thread, having a go at 'lit crit' interpretations of episodes and the need to see everything as metaphor.
