    A terrific two-parter that features aliens, Richard Nixon, and crackling dialogue. [22/29 Apr 2011, p.92]

This is an amazing start to the season and I have a feeling it's going to be a long summer waiting for more Doctor Who. Full Review »

Taking place in 1960's America, Nixon is President and the space program is in its prime. This episode brings back friends old and new to deal with one of the greatest dilemmas Doctor Who faces yet. Looking forward to part II of the season premiere. Don't want to give up too much of the plot but worth the watch. As Dr. River Song would say "Spoilers, my dear". Full Review »

After the pure concentrated awesomeness that was season 5, I had high expectations for the next season, and while Doctor Who will never suck, this was a disappointing season. The season had a rough start and a rough finish. The story arc felt disjointed with the whole of the season only coming in in uneven intervals in the beginning, middle and end of the season (it was like Steven Moffat wasn't communicating with the rest of the writers). Ironically the best episodes this season were the ones that had absolutely nothing to do with the mediocre part of a story arc which continued on from the previous season and STILL hasn't been resolved. Ultimately this season has its great episodes, good episodes, average episodes and bad episodes. Not as good a season 5 but still worthwhile. Full Review »
