I absolutely adored Clara in Deep Breath! It helped that Moffat has nailed down the character and that a bickering relationship between the Doctor and her gives her more challenging things to work with! This helped Jenna to explore her in depth to present a more emotionally complex and rounded character! There were some brilliant moments and my personal favourite is her reply to Vastra which was just incredible start to finish! This episode was definitely her best performance yet and I imagine that there are many more brilliant moments to come!

Very interesting article! If this is the case then this makes me very happy as the DW writing team are getting their act together to make a well-structured and engrossing arc that will have much more presence and significance to the story unlike 'The Impossible Girl' arc last series. Also Steve Thompson's DW scripts haven't been great so with Moffat's input I'm sure it'll be better!

Deep Breath probably because we've seen more of it advertised so we're aware of some interesting scenes! Also looking colossally excited for Into the Dalek and Time Heist! :D

Lovely titles! (Didn't Smaug the Dragon say that???) Also very excited and satisfied to see that Moffat has co-written episodes 5 and 6! I just love his writing and coupled together with Gareth Roberts could make a masterpiece! 5 days to go people! :D

Series 5 was the best story-arc wise so that's good news and as there is lots of variety then I don't mind plenty of earth stories though I prefer space/alien planets episodes!

@LoneRangerNinjutsu @Mr 11 He still thinks of them as 'bloody kids' as I've heard him use the term in several interviews. And that follow up still has something very patronising as he's implying that age is a determining factor of someone's acting ability. For example Jennifer Lawrence's young age hasn't exactly dragged down her performances. It's akin to an adult on congratulating a child on a drawing that's very good for their age.

Personally I don't think it should have one but I'm very proud and reckon it should be in the top 20. In its place I think the 'I am your Father' scene should've taken top spot. The Avengers moment is funny but incredibly overated. It's nice to see the Matrix and Harry Potter here (think Harry Potter should've been lower) and THAT Game of Thrones moment defo deserves it's place 'The Lannisters send their regards *stab* WWWWWWWAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH'

Disappointing but to be expected! Then Doctor Who on the Comic-Con scene has always been disappointing (trailers for comic-con attendees only) so I suppose we can't get our hopes up.

Other than Mark Gatiss (I do like his stories but I just don't find many of them outstanding) and Steve Thompson, I'm happy with the writing line up and very happy to see some new faces! It's a privilege to have Ben Wheatley and Rachael Talalay (nice to have a female director) on board and Douglas Mackinnon's work is consistently brilliant. All round Capaldi's first series should be solid!

'Those kids' have brought brilliant new inventive takes on a long-running character, keeping it fresh and brining a whole new audience (not just lusty fangirls) to Doctor Who and have brought joy and inspired  millions of people! I frankly find that ageist attitude disgusting!

Can't wait for this! Seeing the Doctor truly transform from idealistic madman with a box to damaged war hero will be very interesting and the battles surely will be spectacular. I hope they aim really high on the scope so they take this opportunity to describe battles unfilmable for the screen!

Wow...this was an incredible article. I did like Rose but her treatment of Mickey annoyed me and her love for the Doctor could cause her do to things I really couldn't see eye to eye with. However this article has put Rose into a better light. She was not a perfect person, but then again that's the beauty of her. She is the most realistic companion we have ever seen and that's why a lot of people relate to her and adore her. Not only that she introduced an entire generation to Doctor Who and we discovered this mad universe with her so I can honestly say I have much more respect for her. (But I'm still not going to forget that 'thanks for what?' 'exactly' comment)

My overview:

Episode 1: ASYLUM OF THE DALEKS CAM BELOW PARTNERS IN CRIME AND ROSE.............ARE YOU KIDDING???!!! Glad to see TEH and TIA do so well but seriously...

Episode 2: Good to see Tooth and Claw, Day of the moon and Fires of Pompeii doing well but wanted DOAS and TSC do better.

Episode 3: Surprised and pleased to see a jolt in popularity for POTO but annoyed TUD is lower. Otherwise nothing to say.

Episode 4: Wish TPOT was higher but all in all happy with this.

Episode 5: Perfect

Episode 6: Wish TBOSJ won

Episode 7: All the good stories at towards the top, I'm liking it.

Episode 8: Lots of good episodes towards the top end but am heartbroken to see Father's Day so low!

1. I agree

2. The End of the World (I truly think TBB is a misunderstood episode and if you look hard you'll find things you like. Also The End of the World is IMO the worst episode of the new series so I'm definitely putting it there.

3. Gridlock- (But TCOTBS is second to last)

4. Aliens of London (But DIM is pretty close to the worst ep 4)

5. Rise of the Cybermen- (Good but not great)

6. I Agree

7. The Long Game (Almost TIL but I think TLG is a bit worse)

8. Human Nature (I picked HN and I love The Hungry Earth, so shoot me)

The Unquiet Dead takes the top spot for me! It was an eerie episode that captured the Victorian essence with perfection. The themes were great, the guest actors (shout out for Eve Myles) were compelling and the story was very interesting and enjoyable!

I'm picking Asylum of the Daleks. It was a good old-fashioned Doctor vs Daleks episode that felt very refreshing after the complicated Series 6 arc. The Daleks were nudged in the right direction and felt threatening. Nick Hurran's direction was gorgeous and nailed the atmosphere! The leads reminded us why we fell in love with the character's in the first place and Jenna Colman gave an enticing performance. The plot twists were shocking and got us all talking and hooked for the new series.

1. Asylum of the Daleks- 10/10

2. The Eleventh Hour- 9.5/10 (10)

3. The Impossible Astronaut- 9/10

4. Partners in Crime- 8.5/10 (9)

5. Rose - 8/10

6. Smith and Jones- 8/10

7. New Earth 7.5/10 (8)
