Series 8 is easily the best finale. I would rank them (controversially)...



1) Dark Water/Death in Heaven 

2) The Name of the Doctor 

3) The Stolen Earth/Journey's End (yes I like it) 

4) The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords 

5) The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang 

6) Army of Ghosts/Doomsday 

7) The Wedding of River Song 

8) Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways

On the plus side, we could have a new and interesting companion(s) in a year's time.

On the down side, we'd lose Clara, which is a shame.

Either way I'll be fine =)

Excellent article. Until Dark Water this was the only finale I could give a 10 to. Re-watching it recently really makes me appreciate this story as a fantastic payoff to the series. This is still one of my favourites.

I stand by the fact that the first 20 minutes of this story are absolutely brilliant. It goes pear shaped though near the end though, with Moffat forgoing the character driven narrative and going for story instead. I still find this a good conclusion to Series 6 though. My finale rankings so far are-                     1) Series 4 

2) Series 3 

3) Series 5

4) Series 6  

5) Series 2 

6) Series 1

I would love either a companion from the past (Victorian, medieval, Greek etc), an alien, or both. The only New Who companion who isn't from modern day Earth is Captain Jack, who is awesome. As cool as the New Who companions are, I miss people like Leela or Jamie or Romana. Alternatively, have K9 back. Just imagine Capaldi with him... =D

Good reviews as always. It's sad that this two parter isn't popular with some people. Still, at least DWTV give legitimate reasons for their dislike rather than "Moffat sucks end of". I may disagree, but I respectfully disagree =)

In my humble, unimportant opinion, I don't like this story. At all. While Bad Wolf is a great set up, Parting of the Ways just ignores it and tells a nonsense story which can't decide on a tone or theme. There are so many insidious moments (the tow truck, a Dalek becoming "God" even though that goes against what the Daleks stand for) and the ending is a deus ex machina. It's a plot convience which comes out of nowhere with no set up or reason for it being there apart from RTD saying "Look, Rose is all powerful!". The only good moments are the Tardis hologram scene and the regeneration. I know I will become heavily unpopular for destroying the most beloved finale, but I'm just speaking my mind. That said though, this was still a great article.

Without  a doubt hit. The finale to Series 8 solidified him as THE Doctor, and while Matt is still my favourite, Capaldi is a worthy success. Every episode has either been brilliant (Death in Heaven, Listen, Mummy on the Orient Express) great (Robot of Sherwood, Flatline, Deep Breath) with only one miss for me (In the Forest of the Night). I cannot wait for Christmas and to see what the angry Scottish Doctor will do next.

The Daemons, Terror of the Autons, The Claws of Axos and The Mind of Evil are all great (I think all of Season 8 is superb. Yes, I like Colony in Space). Another great list, though I'm not big on the End of Time. My favourite Master stories are The Daemons, The Deadly Assassin and the Series 3 finale.

If I were Moffat, I would gather the aforementioned three and add Robert Sherman (he's RTD era but Dalek was awesome) and Simon Nye to the mix. All of them need to write for Who again. Nothing against the others, but those are the five best one off writers of New Who.

Richard Curtis is responsible for one of the greatest pieces of drama I've ever seen. Gaiman and Mathieson are both great, but neither can make me swell up inside like Vincent and the Doctor.

OK, random theory time: Missy is Romana. She's pretending to work for the Cybermen but will secretly stop them, with Seb, who is either Drax or a shapeshifted K9. 'Heaven' is her Tardis and she escapes Gallifrey before the Time War to try and save the universe like the Doctor. Random I know, but plausible I think.

Ooooh, hate to say it, but this was very mediocre. Not bad, just mediocre. The direction is outstanding but it lacked focus or story. The "save the trees" message was obvious and it just wasn't engaging. However, I do like the fact that the children behave realistically and Capaldi is great as usual. But after two weeks of brilliant characterization for the Doctor, the fact that he didn't do anything in this makes it fall apart. In my opinion, this is the only weak link in Series 8. Oh, and that scene where the Doctor wanted to stay was masterful and it was easily the best scene in the episode.

A great article. My take on the matter is that people complain too much about young children on the show. For many, it will be their first acting job and of course they won't be able to eclipse the adults, as they've had years of acting experience. But their work on Doctor Who might start great careers. It's never really their fault if they ruin an episode, as like adults if they fall prey to bad writing and bad directing then of course they'll be annoying. But, if they're given great material, then of course they'll shine.

I would love to see Gaiman tackle the Mara, seeing how his writing focuses on the surreal and dreams. I recently re watched NIS and I enjoy it to be honest, definitely not as good as other Series 7 episodes but its still fun.
