I'm simply not buying the "vampire blood cannot cure cancer" excuse. Even if the blood was useless against the cancerous tissue, they could still compel the doctors to cut the cancer out and regenerate her with blood after the fact.
This show needs a lot more exposure then it's currently getting. The line between sinister and silly can be a thin one.. but they do seem to have found the right tone. Lets just hope the series gets a full order because of it. I enjoyed this episode a lot. Especially the call back to 3 weeks past where Constantine sacrificed a former member of his Newcastle crew. Now its Johns turn. Can't wait for next weeks follow up.
The only descent plot turns, though heavily foreshadowed, were the appearance of the Brigardier and the Gallifrey reveal. I'm OK with Clara leaving if only to let the other writers off the hook.. they would never find a way out of that corner anyway. Almost everything else in the script was one contrivance after the other and frankly some of the worst writing Moffat has subjected us too in the history of the revived series. You don't get to appeal to my emotional center if the only way you are getting there is through cheap twists an nonsensical actions Mr. Moffat.
