Hello! Thanks for another entertaining and informative podcast.
Frank Cottrell Boyce is the father of seven children. I think this may give him some insight in how to write dialogues for children.
The episode is so fairytale heavy, I personally think questions about the credibility of the science are irrelevant at this point. In more urban and/or science fiction/speculative fiction themed episodes realism becomes more important. Doctor Who has always known both extremes; hard science fiction and allegory, poetic storytelling and pure fairytale. It’s all good as far as I’m, concerned.
By the way, Father ‘Idiot’, about nightmares of the forest, the Doctor may have had the Fabeltjeskrant’s Enge Bos in mind. 😉
