10Absolutely brilliant! This is the reason Doctor Who is more popular now then ever before. In the tradition of such shows as The Twilight Zone and The X-Files, DW has such boundlessly imaginative stories, concepts and characters. It can go anywhere and anytime within this universe and the occasional other. Every episode is like being a kid walking into an alien toy store.… Expand
as up as things got in series 7A with 2/6 really good episodes and 1 ok one.. series 7B gave us 6 fantastic episodes and 1 ok one with 1 horrible piece of television.. worst episode of doctor who since season 2.. but then we had 2 10/10 episodes! so here is my ratings.... asylum of the daleks.. 3/10 horrible television.. major plot holes and lacking characters and bad supporting cast.. then dinosaurs on a spaceship 8/10... funny parts enjoyable and a fantastic laugh to have. town called mercy.. no point to even have amy and rory in this episode.. some major plot holes but was sort of lifted high.. 6/10 power of 3.... power of three is GREAT!! alot of editing came out bad but it still worked very well and did the doctor let everyone in the hospital who was abducted die? angels take manhattan.. the angels were boring plot holes came out of steven moffats ass 5/10... snowmen was 4/10 but specials never count in my reviews.. bells of saint john was a great lift up of stevens work.. 8/10... rings of akhaten.. 6/10.. boring uninspired and drowsey at some points ok though.. cold war.. 9/10 funny heavenly and a treat for the fans with the return of the ice warriors... hide... 7/10.. it could have been better but why didn't they just turn on the lights and why does the doctor have to tell us when its spooky? journey to the centre of the tardis... 2/10.. do I even have to explain... the characters were uninspired.. there were 2 rooms we explored the dialogue was and no one made an impact and everything that happened made no impact on the finale as it was forgotten and only remembered in the last 20 minutes.. crimson horror 10/10! funny and awesome altogether! Nightmare in silver 10/10.. great elements from a story with the fantastic return of the cybermen! and the finale! THE NAME OF THE DOCTOR! 8/10! its fine nothing amazing but quite good some plot holes but everything looks and feels real.. its emotional and very interesting at some points.. the ending is really amazing aswell!… Expand
3Doctor Who has become a treacly, silly, caricature of its formerly revived self. I sorely miss the Eccleston and Tennant years when the stories were darker, more clever, more grounded and more interesting. The writing is no larger sharp. It's half-witted and plugs in artificial sweetness (children singing, Amy and Rory romance) for real character development. Grand melodrama for new ideas (the world is ending! the Doctor is going to die!)
Matt Smith is likeable enough, but the miles on the Tardis have either just gotten to high or a better class of writing and direction are needed back. Just watch the first 2 seasons on Netflix and then go back to Saturday nights to see the glaring difference. The Doctor was mysterious and weighed down by his place in the universe. Now he's a jokey buffoon. The stories used to take us far and away through time and space and now we see more of London than most Londoners. Maybe that gives it greater mass appeal(?), but at the very disappointing expense of intelligence and suspense.
Doctor Who? I just don't care anymore.… Expand
