I watched some early Eccleston and thought the show was OK, but nothing I wanted to watch past the second episode. Jump ahead a few months and I tried the Eleventh hour. Immediately I was addicted, and by the end of Flesh and Stone, I knew the show was something special. In other words... Matt Smith. Bow ties are cool.

I really wish this had released at a different time. I adored AC4 to bits and pieces, and this looks like a really solid port, so I'm sure I'd really like the game. But 60 bucks in the midst of all these releases? Nope. Hopefully after the holidays I'll get to pick it up, preferably for a bit cheaper.

Pandorica/Big Bang by far for me. Not just one of the best finales, but one of the best stories. Nothing else on this list even comes close IMO. Stolen Earth /Journey's End is second, because I love it despite the terrible ending, and Dark Water/Death in Heaven and Name of the Doctor are just after that. Everything else.... eh.

@Loleta  "....all things considered." It's a sequel to a really weird game that barely broke a million multiplatform on other consoles that DON'T have regular trouble selling more violent and "mature" games, and on consoles with far higher install bases. 300,000 wouldn't be ideal, but I honestly expected less. Bayonetta 2 DESERVES a lot more than that, but it's hard to expect that much in this situation.

This is TOUGH. Utopia's one of the best of the RTD era, and it brought the master back fantastically. I adore Dark Water, but I've only watched it once, so it's hard to choose.....

Some fair points, only the Cracks in Time arc shows that a heavy arc can be a major improvement. You can figure out what happens before the finale, but the finale still has plenty of twists and turns, and importantly, it was actually an incredibly satisfying episode. that said, you make good points. Heavy arcs can harm things, especially in season 6 and 7.

@MrESStranger There's a limited amount, I believe, but there's definitely enough to get through the game even if you waste some. You can restock quite a few by using pills, but using the pills leads to a worse ending, I think, and even the pills are limited. But if you use other methods when possible, you should be fine.

The thing I love about this is that neither is wholly right and neither is wholly wrong, so it is a much more interesting moral question, and thus is hard to pick a side. Still, I think I'm inclined to go with... er.... geez. I honestly don't know.

Great reviews! Personally, this is the best episode of the season, although the terrible bank security bothered me.

@Kat Taylor @Jono81 First of all, the average quality of the stories has gone up immensely. The "filler" episodes, or the "duds" are still a good time. There aren't any Love and Monsters/Fear Her type situations.


Second of all, I don't feel the quality of his writing has gone down at all (season 5 is his best work, IMO) and he;s by far my favorite writer, so having a whole bunch of Moffat stories is a huge plus. And having no RTD stories is, I must say, a blessing for me; aside from Midnight and The Stolen Earth, I haven't adored any of his stories.


And then the story arcs are so much better now than they were before. And I love me some season arcs. Season 6's finale and Let's Kill Hitler were missteps, but everything else about his arcs are fantastic and keep me much more engaged throughout the season.

@Planet of the Deaf I'd honestly say TEH was scarier. the crack in the wall freaked me out a bit, though I wasn't sure why at the time. DB was more traditionally creepy and weird, but it didn't unsettle me the same way. Even the giant hot air balloon of human skin.

Deep Breath was great, don't get me wrong. But I didn't like how many references there were to older series. I like new Doctors having completely fresh starts; this was not. So TEH is better partially because it was a brand new Doctor, companion, and even world, to an extent. Also, it was better paced and was just more enjoyable, for whatever reason. Both were fantastic though!

@matthewwesley85 @Jono81 OOT3D wasn't made by EAD3. MM3D would probably be done by Grezzo. The problem isn't too many Zelda games, for me; it's whether those resources could be dedicated to something else. At the moment, I'd prefer something different from that team to another handheld Zelda; that doesn't mean I wouldn't take another handheld Zelda.


I didn't make that clear in my comment, though, And of course, I can't speak for Anonymous' thoughts on the matter.
