Right this is just silly! 82 for Deep Breath. Ok I get some of the hardcore fans were at the cinema and that new doctor stories are generally intorduce actors who are replacing beloved performances so the AI's gonna be lower. 84 for Into the Dalek. Again still warming to the new Doctor, but still a little low regardless. Robot of Sherwood with 82. The episode divided opinion so I can understand this, but seriously 82 for Listen. Listen was bloody amazing and surely they're getting used to Capaldi by now. All of the fans on sites have sung praises and pretty much all of the critics have given it 5 stars. It's a classc period. So why is it this low. I don't get it. I guess it'll grow as they get used to Capaldi which was what they did for Smith (TEH- 86, TBB- 86, VOTD- 84 at the start TL- 87 TPO- 88 TBB- 89 at the end) but I expected it to be at 86 or 87. I'm sorry guys but I cannot fathom it.

Gatiss while not a stand out writer I still think he's a decent writer. Robot of Sherwood is the only one I'm not a big fan of and The Unquiet Dead and his Series 7 eps are fantastic IMO!

@Chris502 Ahaha classic! :D
1. The Unquiet Dead (Love this one!)
2. The Crimson Horror (Forever entertaining ep!)
3. Cold War (Thrill factor and brill Ice Warriors make this one a winner!)
4.Victory of the Daleks (Like this one but it's flawed!)
5. The Idiot's Lantern (Quite good ep)
6. Night Terrors (Enjoyable and scary but forgettable)
7. Robot of Sherwood (Too cringe for me)
Still think Into the Dalek was better than Deep Breath, but I still love Deep Breath!

After this week's much weaker attempt I know now that Doctor Who is going to absolutely bloody amazing from here on out! Bring it on Moffat! :D

A weaker episode in all largely due to the cringe factor (though no way near as bas as the cringe factor on ITV). 7/10

@Ivegotkidneys is in Sherwood forest @Mr 11 Yeah good point he'll probs get better at it but he's got to have some guts to oppose the Doctor!
@helenagardner9 @Mr 11 Yeah that's tear a big clue but the Doctor's one to talk as he has solider-like qualities which Jenny pointed out and let's not forget the Time War even if the Doctor tried to.
@Ottoman14 Not gonna lie that's a tad harsh but yeah I've started GCSE year so I'm a little bit sick of teachers at the moment.
I like that Danny's starting our quiet confident and not put upon as Rory and Mickey started! He could be a very different take on the male companion! :D
@Antee991166 I agree with this! I really like TCH but the cheese ruins it a little and I have a feeling it could be worse here! :D

Why would he be taking over? He has never written for the show so it would seem risky to just hand over the show to him!

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!
3 weeks ago on Deep Breath: The Very Best of Clara Oswald
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

@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!
Fantastic! Love these books even of the last batch were a bit disappointing! :D

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)

Episode 4: Wish TPOT was higher but all in all happy with this.
Episode 5: Perfect

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

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)
