Oh god, I miss them. They are my favourite companions of all of Doctor Who. Sarah Jane is second.

Great choices! Yeah, the pre-title sequences of this season have been the best. Better than any other season in my opinion.

3 days ago on 12 Great Moments From The Caretaker

Reply

Pros:

Danny Pink - good character drama

The Doctor - more good character drama

Clara - even more character drama

The moment when Danny found out about the Doctor

The fighting between Danny and the Doctor

Coal Hill school

Cons:

The villain. Forgot it's name already (scorco pizza?) and was not threatening at all. It was supposed to be one of the deadliest killing machines in the universe. It can barely aim or move quickly.

Even though the Doctor was good in this episode, he did come across a bit too unlikeable toward the end.

Overall: this episode is best as a character piece, which it does very well, and not as a monster of the week episode, because that part of it was very weak. Overall, a solid and entertains effort. 7.5/10

I wasn't expexting a very favourable review. But I'm a fan of The Lodger and Closing Time, so I should like quite a bit.

I voted for Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS. Time Heist is a close second. I don't think many will vote for the Black Spot. Journey to me is unfairly criticised. It's a classic!

Pros:

The opening ~ thrilling and had me at the edge of my seat

The thrilling last half ~ same

Psi and Saibra ~ I actually liked these two a lot, and thought they were far more developed than other secondary characters in Doctor Who. They reminded me of Ravel and Nefertiti, and like them, I want them to return. Please.

The bank of Karabraxos ~ had some beautiful imagery

Cons:

Rushed first half

Nothing particularly memorable or amazing

Unfortunately came under Listen, which unfortunately is a con

Too much ideas in its run time, so it would of benefited from 10 more minutes

Overall: this is one of those episodes that won't be remembered very well after viewing, but is still very big entertainment when watching. Basically like Robot of Sherwood. 7.5/10 which is rounded up to 8/10

I'm one of those who thought Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS was amazing. So I'm highly looking forward to this episode. 7/10 is a pleasing score to me, but I undoubtedly think I will give it an 8. I do have to admit, though, that the second half of the season seems to be much better than the first half.

Man, this is one of the hardest polls in a while. The thing under the bed spread couldn't have been a human, though. So much evidence against it. If it were a monster, then...oh I don't know! What did the Doctor see from the hatch? Something was turning the hatch, but twenties out Clara influenced the Doctor's belief of the creatures! Ahhhhhhhh!

Pros:

The Doctor ~ amazing

Clara ~ amazing

Danny/Rupert/Orson Pink ~ amazing

The thing in the bed scene ~ amazing

Any scene with Clara ~ amazing (yeah, I should start to think of other words)

The creepy nature of the episode

Cons:

Slightly underwhelming and controversial ending

I actually do want an explanation for the thing in the bed, otherwise it was just another Hide ending. Just done in a cooler way.

Overall: an amazing episode that is the first to scare me since Hide. Amazing, amazing, amazing. (Bit a bit flawed). 9/10

My ranking of the three episodes so far:

1. Deep Breath 8/10

2. Robot of Sherwood 8/10

3. Into the Dalek 7/10

3 weeks, 2 days ago on Your Verdict on Into the Dalek

Reply

Pros:

Robin Hood and Doctor banter ~ I couldn't stop laughing every time they were together

Robin Hood and his merry men ~ I know a lot of people thought the merry men were underused, but I thought they were amusing! same as Robin Hood

Ben Miller ~ he is always great

Spoon fight ~ I actually loved it

Cons:

I didn't feel any threat or menace in the episode

The robots didn't do much for me

A strange change of tone from the promised 'dark Doctor Who'

Overall: I liked this episode much more than many other people, it seems (for me) Mark Gattis keeps on getting better. Funny and heartfelt. 8/10

They are figures I can agree with. So far, my favourite to least favourite episodes of the season ( there's only two so far, of course):

1. Deep Breath 8/10

2. Into the Dalek 7/10

1 month ago on Your Verdict on Deep Breath

Reply

Pros:

Danny Pink ~ he seems awesome

Rusty the good Dalek ~ he was incredible! and I loved it when he exterminated all the Daleks. That was the best moment of the episode for me.

"You are a good Dalek" - now THAT is a good line, especially when said to the Doctor.

Memories scene ~ the scene with the Doctor's mind inside Rusty's was incredible.

The Daleks actually exterminated people ~ finally

Cons:

Underdeveloped supporting characters

The antibodies didn't impact me at all

Predictable outcome and flat story ~ they go inside good Dalek, get attacked by antibodies, escape, fix Dalek, Dalek turns bad again, Dalek turns good again. That was it, and it was easy to predict.

Overall: a solid and entertaining but unamazing ep. 7/10

Ha fair enough. I do like the paternoster gang, but I think this episode should of dedicated more time to the relationship between the Doctor and Clara, as well as some more mad Doctor scenes. They were mostly there for humour, which was funny at times, but there were parts that didn't work for me. I still like them though.

1 month, 1 week ago on Rate & Discuss Deep Breath

Reply

Pros:

Peter Capaldi is an amazing Doctor

Clara just got better

The villains were scary, and I loved the half-faced man

Some great scenes. Like the lunch scene at the restaurant. The scene where Clara is left alone and she must hold her breath. The scene with THAT phone call. The scene between the Doctor and the homeless man. The scene between the Doctor and the half-faced man.

Brilliant second and third acts.

Cons:

Tired first act.

Dinosaur was not needed

The Paternoster gang were overused

Some disturbing rude jokes

Overall: a fantastic episode, but mildly flawed. Cannot wait for the rest of the series, Capaldi is fantastic!

8/10

Despite people claiming Deep Breath has been spoiled, I must say that I think this season has been one of the most secretive. I knew heaps coming into season 7, and there were barely any surprises. This season, I barely know anything about all the episodes, which I'm incredibly happy about. So I'm just thankful because even this episode has not been given away.
