... I don;t know. For me it's between Amy's Choice, Vincent and the Doctor and The Doctor's Wife. Three phenomenal episodes. I've put it in an internet name picker thing and it's gone for Vincent and the Doctor so I'll vote for that.

@stargazer0118 I love this video! I've seen it before when I've been browsing through Babelcolour's amazing work. His Lis Sladen and Nicholas Courtney tribute made me cry.
I love this feeling of genuinely not knowing what's going to happen in the finale! It's exciting!

@The Finn @Edoe Flatline's my favourite this series, and while ITFOTN may not be fabulous, it's better than KTM, ITD and TH.

I love Flatline, and I enjoyed this episode as well! I mean, it wasn't perfect, but I liked it.
Just finished Horror of Fang Rock. Woah. That was a brutal story. It was like The Sea Devils there was so much death. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it. A proper good dark piece of story telling, that was. One of my favourites of the classic series. It creates such a scary atmosphere, it's really tense when the crew are being picked off one by one.
Tom Baker and Louise Jameson are on top form - that bowler hat really suits Tom Baker - and the rest of the guest cast are good as well. Terrance Dicks got the characterization of everyone spot on. Honestly, my only criticism is when the Colonel finds the diamonds they feel the need to throw in a few twinkle sounds but other than that it's a fantastic episode!
Please Moffat, bring back the Rutans at some point! They were great in The Adventure Games, I'd like to see them back. They're pretty awesome monsters. Anyway. I think that's everything. I'm not sure what to rate it but it's in the 8/9 region.

A Doctor Who Fan Page shared a link of Facebook linked to an article called "Missy's Identity Confirmed" which has been posted on a site called MoviePilot.
I'm taking this with a pinch of salt because I don't know the track record of the site. Also, the BBC wouldn't confirm it. The only thing I can think about is that it's been leaked.

As excited as I am for Dark Water/Death in Heaven I'm keeping expectations low... just in case it's a massive flop. It's what I call "Series 7 Syndrome" which luckily hasn't happened much this series. But it's hard to stay calm, considering it's a Moffat two parter with Cybermen and UNIT!

@Chris502 @Edoe Yeah, they should really do a few more games like The Last Dalek. Also that one where you took control of a Cyberman army was pretty fun.

Earlier I posted that link to the UNIT website. Why don't they do that sort of thing anymore? They used to do it a lot, and it could work with them having a website for the 3W or whatever it's called.
@TheTimeTraveller is the 12th Doctor I'm the Doctor as well!

Bloomin' eck! This is hard! There are so many fantastic episodes. I can't pick five. There's just so many standout episodes from his era - These are the ones that I think are scoring in the 9 or 10 zone. The Eleventh Hour, Vincent and the Doctor, The Lodger, The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang, A Christmas Carol, The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon, The Doctor's Wife, The Girl Who Waited, The God Complex, Closing Time, The Angels Take Manhattan, The Snowmen, The Bells of St John, The Name of the Doctor, The Day of the Doctor and The Time of the Doctor.

I was gonna write an article like this myself, but I don't need to worry because you've done it! That was a fantastic article that penned down my thoughts on the episode pretty much exactly. I can't be bothered to write a long review. There are just some terrific moments in it - The Cybermites crawling up Webley's arms, the half converted Webley shushing Artie when he's captured, god knows how many Cybermen massing to storm the castle and so many more. I love it.

I enjoyed this episode. The kids were great, I thought, and Capaldi was fantastic. He feels properly like the Doctor now, which is fantastic. It was an interesting plot, and it really felt like the production team were being brave and trying out new ideas, and I love the way it followed on from Kill the Moon nicely, with the "I walk this Earth, I breath your air". Murray Gold's score, as well, was beautiful, and the episode itself, visually, was stunning.

@TheBiPunishment Hmm... I love both Smith and McGann, but because the majority here seem to be going for Smith I'll go with McGann just to spread that Eighth Doctor love.
Peter Capaldi. I wasn't to sure about him until ITFOTN, but he's completely won me over

These last few nights I've been having a really weird reoccurring dream...
That Torchwood was coming back.
I have no idea where this has come from, but I keep dreaming about loads of new promotional material, of trailers and dreaming of a brand new full series. O_o I can remember sitting in a cinema and before the film, a trailer for Torchwood coming on. Then another night, sitting at home and seeing another trailer. Then walking through town and seeing loads of big billboards about it. I can vividly remember posters and stuff with Jack and Gwen.
It's a shame that this isn't true. I hope that this dream keeps reoccurring though, to the point where I actually get to see some episodes... well, dream about seeing some episodes.

@TheBiPunishment Smith vs McCoy? That's... that's really really hard. Okay. I'll go with McCoy.
Nightmare in Silver is a story I will not stop defending. I really love it. The new Cybermen feel perfect, sleeker and creepier. I can't wait to see them in the finale. Their new techniques reflect the advances in technology, also the walking hand was pretty terrifying. Even if we don't see the limb removing again, I think they still look awesome. Matt is fabulous, and the Mr Clever stuff is really engaging.
In fact, the new Cybermen... have a look at this. http ://oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/www.ign.com/1766/2013/03/IMG_5360.jpg I love this picture of one of them, it reminds me of one of the Cybermen from the 60's.

I love The Doctor's Wife, and I'm also one of the few who like Nightmare in Silver. He's one of my favourite authors, and I think that if we give him time, he will produce another cracking episode :)
@TardisBoy I agree, I think it's a strong series. The quality seems to have improved a lot, with the good episodes being fantastic and the bad ones being not that bad. At the moment, it's just bordering under series 4/ series 5 standard.

What am I doing with my life? Playing a CBBC game… oh well.
It’s surprisingly fun. I mean, it’s not really fun, but it’s nice to play when
you’ve got nothing else to do. I get to “stun” Cybermen (because extermination
isn’t appropriate for CBBC or something like that) which is quite enjoyable. Also,
these bits where you have to do this programming sort of thing are quite
annoying and feel really forced – then again, I expect children love them, and
I guess it’s the whole point of the game. I don’t really think it was ready to
be released, because I’ve found loads of bugs – for example, when you have to
escape the Cybermen, they spawn at a really, insanely stupid rate. It’s as if
the BBC thought “This is a kids game, let’s put little effort in to it”
But I’m reminded of The Last Dalek when I play this. Anyone remember that game?
I know it was on the official Doctor Who website and this is on the CBBC one,
but I expect The Last Dalek was mostly played by kids. I certainly played it.
It seems like they’re playing it really safe and making sure they can’t be sued
for a game containing violent content on a kid’s site or something. It makes me
feel quite happy, though, that kids will remember this game like I remember The
Last Dalek. I dunno why. And if you haven’t played the last Dalek, play it! It’s
not on the main site anymore but you can still google it and it’s on loads of
other game sites. I’ve linked one below.
@Scribey A small confession to make... I haven't seen much of Five. However... there are a lot of moments in The Caves of Androzani when he is at his best. I think that the episode is overrated, but I can't deny that Peter Davison is phenomenal in it.
@sontaran17 That is really, really great! :D
I do very much agree with a lot of what you say. I think Clara seems to be in focus a lot, and I sort of wish Clara would take a back seat, yet I love her character development. A great article :)
Also, something else I noticed... when you talk about Clara's flaws "she’s an egotistical brat, she’s judgmental, condescending, and prone to lies" Rose had flaws, and people frequently complain about her, yet not many people complain about Clara's flaws. Just puttin' that out there.

Something really annoying happened when I was watching Flatline last night. I had accidentally turned on the Audio Description, and at the beginning, when the guy disappeared and the phone dropped, the TV went "the telephone receiver drops to the floor" really, really loudly. Completely killed the mood.
