I only realised today. The CGI in Dinosaurs on a Spaceship is phenomenal. The Dinosaurs and the space scenes. The best CGI I've seen in Who ever.

@jamesanash101 Series 3 and 4 were amazing. Series 2 had it's highlights (School Reunion, The Girl in the Fireplace and The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit). The rest weren't really to my taste. Maybe Tooth and Claw, and the Cybermen two parter.

@Huknar @supermoff @TAFKA-A I thought it was an incredibly creative series. Moffat told the writers to 'write it like a movie poster' and that's what they did. The 11/Clara dynamic worked well and the finale was... wow.

@Bollyknickers Ooh. We've got similar lists. Sort of, even if there are some big differences.
I should probably explain why 801 and 802 are at the bottom. I wrote this on the base of the SFX previews, the trailer and a couple of fliming pics for episode 1, because that's really all I have to rank them on. It's just from what I've seen it doesn't grab me to much. I think you all know something I don't, probably. 802 I'm just slightly wary, even if it is the master that is Phil Ford who's writing. It just seems like quite a risky concept to tackle.
Okay... I have Spare Parts and The Chimes of Midnight sat on my shelf. I have only listen to Spare Parts, which was brilliant, and I must listen to Chimes. So, to broaden my collection I will take note of your list. Great article! :D

@doctorwhotvuk 3 and 6 will certainly going to be divisive - Gattis' and Robert's stories always are. I can't really think of many more. Phil Ford's episode might be quite controversial if it really does what it says on the tin. That might fit in to your second one down. They'll probably be some sudden surprises in some stories that will be discussed as well.

Series 3 - 8.5/10
Series 2 - 8.5/10
However, if I were to rate each series as a single entity it would be very similar.

Series 5 - 8/10
Series 3 - 8/10
Series 2 - 7/10
@Mark McCullough You. I like you.
Ooh I've ballsed the end of that comment up. Well done Edoe.
Edoe's Sarah Jane Adventures Marathon
Daaayyymm. Series 5. I will be honest, it annoys me that this series was never finished, because the other stories sound amazing (The Thirteenth Floor was great for WVA) but we can't help Lis' poor health, so I can forgive that. I know Sky is a controversial character, but I like her. I know she's Luke's 'replacement' and is very similar, basically just being a carbon copy who, like Luke, was grown in a lab. But yes, I think she's a good character. The crew did a fantastic job with the design of the Metalkind (blimey they look cool) but I feel that the species could've been given a better name than Fleshkind and Metalkind, but oh well. The Shopkeeper is back (I like him) and as I said, it's a shame we never found out who he was. The story was a generally quite good. 8.5/10. I'm being indecisive again.
The Curse of Clyde Langer
Raining Fish. I have seen it all. I find the mythological gods and all that quite interesting actually. It really shows how anyone, no matter who they are, can go from being loved to hated and out on the streets so quickly. Homelessness is a delicate topic but it's handled really well. The cast are really good - there isn't one performance I can fault. The Night Dragon certainly wasn't what I expected. And that reminds me, Ellie is a really good character who got a lovely ending. The tea lady... I could hardly understand what she was saying and she was surprisingly creepy XD There's some good music in this - and it's got my favourite track in - the one first used back in 'Berserker' when Clyde is in the attic with Sarah Jane. I love the resolution of this story. A lot. A really good story. 9/10.
The Man Who Never Was
Luke's back! I love it when Luke comes back because... well, he's Luke! But the rest of the story... I want to love it, because it's the last episode ever, but I can't help but feel it's slightly cheesy. A hologram controlled by Cyclops Dwarven Jawas was just odd, I thought. But, Mr Harris was horrible - a slave master, punishing his workers, which isn't something we've seen in this show yet. Another disguised dark concept that worked really well. Oh, and there was Clyde's disguised full stop joke -_- I don't know why I take such a joy in seeing the whole 'Smith' family out and about. In that respect it felt like a good ending to the series. And that ending bit... it was beautiful. It wasn't the intended end for the series, but with that ending it seemed like it could be.
The universe has to move forward. Pain and loss, they define us as much as happiness of love. Whether its a world, or a relationship... Everything has its time, and everything ends.
I know that quote is from Who but it felt quite fitting. I think the reason I love this series is because Sarah Jane is my favourite Doctor Who companion, and it was brilliant that she got her own series.

So, to Luke, Clyde, Maria, Rani, Mr Smith, K9, Alan, Chrissie, Gita, Haresh and finally, to the wonderful Sarah Jane Smith, well done :) I'll post my final ratings later.
I would love to see an episode is New Zealand, definitely directed by him!

Edoe's Sarah Jane Adventures Marathon
Lost in Time
SJA's bad attempt at a ghost story is redeemed now, even if it was a bit smaller. It's like three historicals rolled in to one. I love each individual plot - as I said, the ghost story one is far better than The Eternity Trap. I love the first half of the 20th century (my favourite periods of history) so the world war 2 plot is brilliant and the Jane Grey one... oh the feels. The ending - where Emily's granddaughter (I think it was granddaughter) saved the world, and Clyde reads about George, and Rani reads about Jane Grey... it's lovely. The shopkeeper is a mysterious bloke and it's a shame we never found out properly who he was. Apparently he would've been manipulated by the Trickster in to putting Sky of Sarah Jane's doorstep. Ah, well, a fantastic episode. 9/10.
Goodbye, Sarah Jane Smith
I remember on first broadcast I thought that Sarah Jane had dementia, or something like that, and it was really, quite heartbreaking. I mean it was obvious that Ruby White was a bit dodgy but still. In fact, I'm glad she was evil. I'm so glad that it was her and not the deterioration of brain tissue, because when we saw Sarah Jane being pushed out of picture and handing over everything to Ruby I nearly cried XD But then Ruby chained up Sarah Jane in her cellar and it was all fine and dandy. Ruby, however, is a FANTASTIC villain. A really great villain, one of my favourites of the show. Lis shows her best performance yet - She's one of those people who when you see upset it makes you feel or sad as well. Its full of those beautiful little moments - when Luke returns, when Gita is talking to Rani and when they all save Sarah Jane. And the music! It's the best SJA finale yet, and the sort of thing I could imagine as the final finale. If Lis hadn't left us I would want the series end to be like this. 10/10.
Lost in Time - 9/10
Prisoner of the Judoon - 9/10
@Clara Laurinda @edoe101 I've got two episodes left in series 1, and so far it's really good. Episode 2 and 3 are perhaps a bit weaker but the rest are brilliant.

@TardisBoy That is beautiful. I have nothing else to say. Just beautiful.
Edoe's Sarah Jane Adventures Marathon!
The Nightmare Man
Aww. That yellow car is beautiful. And the scene that takes place inside it. Julian Bleach seems to steal the show in EVERYTHING he's in - he's properly terrifying here. I know've I've rattled on about character development for Luke across this little marathon and this is sort of the icing on the character development cake. He's moving to Oxford, where he'll have to live on his own, do stuff for himself, and things he would've never been able to do it back after Invasion. And both this plot and the Nightmare plot tie in really well. Sladen is excellent as the old Sarah Jane. It's quite a dark story - but as SJA does it has it's funny bits as well. The Slitheen (it had clearly been tanning) bit, the moment where Sarah Jane dried to convince Luke his first day was okay, and of course the banter between Mr Smith and K9. It's a really good story and a perfect departure for Luke.10/10.
The Vault of Secrets
'Burrps'. Excuse me while I cringe to death. I don't mind it when there are things played for laughs in SJA but that was a step to far. Androvax is really, really cool, as always. In fact, this episode had more cool monsters. The alliance of shades are awesome. I wasn't to fond of the hand takey offy hand stuff because that was sort of stolen form the Autons. Androvax was shone in a completely different light, which was interesting. Erm... I really don't have much else to say about it, apart form that I really enjoyed it. An 8/10.
Death of the Doctor
Oh, how I love Jo Grant. She's just... there are no words, she's brilliant. This whole story in fact, is brilliant. I thought UNIT were handled badly back in 'Enemy' but apart from the evil Colonel they were quite good. The intergalactic space vultures are great, even if they're maybe not the best design. The Obviously repainted Graske suits are, well, a bit useless but I like them. And 11! Oh, 11 is just fantastic, as always. "Come along Smith!" That lovely little scene on that planet with Sarah Jane, Jo and the Doctor was beautiful and really quite touching. And what I would give for Jo to return. She could work well with Capaldi. And it's such a shame we never saw more of 11 and Sarah Jane. The plot was genius as well. I can forget any faults this story may have just for the fact it has 11, Jo and UNIT. Oh, and the references to the old companions at the end :') 10/10.
The Empty Planet
Ah. The old 'there's only two people left on the planet because some robots wanted to find some king' story. It must've been a nightmare to set up though. The detail that went in to making everything look empty was phenomenal. Part 1 was really good, actually, Clyde and Rani trying to solve what was happening. I thought the payoff was a bit dodgy, but I sort of liked it. Those robots trying to find their alien king for a planet that looked surprisingly like 'Naboo'. That reminds me, the robots. They're sort of like big red and yellow Cybusmen crossed with Daleks... not my favourite design. Ah, but it's got that ol' Gareth Roberts charm, and I quite like it. An 8/10.
I'm pleased with series 4 so far. No bad ones yet. Series 2 and series 3 each had one 'rotten apple' as it were, but like series 1, series 4 is doing well so far.
