"When we get back, you need to talk to the Tin Lioness about leaving with you tomorrow. Give her a chance to come to terms with being a predator or a meat shield, yes?"

"I hate the dark," Pretty-Boy!Janus mutters as the door closes behind the larcenous duo. "How's your knowledge of matters alchemical and pharmaceutical, Professor? We're looking for anything of immediate use such as poison -- cyanide, hemlock, wolfsbane, antimony, foxglove, belladonna, arsenic, any sort of exotic venom. I also won't turn my nose up at any useful potions such as nightvision you come across. If we must continue working at night without your presence, they'd be most useful, yes?"

The plant woman dons her own crown, and the unmistakable face of the Lady Leela is replaced by that of a young dark skinned man. Though it takes a little while, the face is perhaps eventually recognisable as a romanticised depiction of the guard upon Janus fed in the first rush of the escape from the clutches of Brandescar. The clothes the false image wears are simple enough, with just enough embellishment to signal their owner out as a member of the lowest rung of the middle classes, worthy neither of contempt nor particular respect.

"Come on then," Pretty-Boy!Janus says as she drops out the window. "The night is wasting and we have crime to perpetrate. But let us avoid murder if we can, yes?"

The dwarves seem to take something with them to work that our only chance to inspect seems to be while they're drinking/sleeping at night. It might be nothing, it might contain some hidden key to cracking the fortress in twain

Why are people and things bound? To curtail or disable their proper freedom of movement. Ther's no reason why Bind vs Escape Artist can't both be done with the same skill.

Getting her out of town away from the authorities is probably the clever move though

Later, as Cremor packs for his departure, Janus appears at his doorway.

"Since you're clearly committed to this rash action, I need to make use of your larcenous skills before being deprived of them. I wish to inspect the apothecary and see if there's anything there worth liberating for our own use."

So, thoughts?

I liked both the story and Capaldi's performance as the Doctor, as well as the mystery of Missy that picks up unexpectedly from last year's Bells of St John's (I'm torn between wanting her to be the Master and something new).

In particular I rather liked the Control Node, which tickles my AI fancy just right.

The only thing that bugged me was the troptastic sexed-up buddy breathing shot, in large part because it had been built up outside the episode as "we've admitted theyre married, now they finally get to have an onscreen kiss like all the hetero folks". A strange combination of sleezy and gutless, but thankfully a minor point.

Like all post-regeneration stories of the new series, the Doctor has a tendency of playing second fiddle to the companion's coping with the experience as he beds his character down, so the real test of the new Doctor will come next week.
