It's true, it doesn't really matter but something as simple as giving an episode a score out of 10 why do some people twist and alter the scoring system to scores like "8.36 but I gave it a 9/10" it just baffles me (because if you were to round down it would be 8/10 but then your own personal preference means of how you worked it out even if your results say 8 you are giving it 9 regardless).

And then you get some even crazier (some may say passionate) people saying "the third character plot and music score was sublime, however the lighting was okay but the second scene sub plot in the finale 5 minutes felt rushed blah blah blah I'm giving it a 7/10" it's like are you really reading too much into a 45 minute episode.

Was it good to watch? Did you enjoy it? What the score out of 10?

Easy

Why say 8.4/10 and then got 10?

Just say 10/10...?!

That is true but when people say scores like 8.4287 etc I honestly think "why not just say 8/10" surely if you think like reason such as "the second verse of the music in the 3rd scene didn't really go well with the line the character said" you really can be reading way too much into an episode. Everyone's passionate I agree, some are just a little obsessive though.

I didn't particularly like the character: too Donna Noble and we've already had a companion like that.

So people really should just write an article then fill the comments section with their reviews. And how can you give a score of 8.368... Just say 8!

If Missy is filming episodes 1 and 2 and some of it is in a closed studio, what is stopping Steven Moffat using footage of her in the opening premier and casting a few scenes where she is also in the finale?

I liked most of the RTD era but I LOVE the whole Steven Moffat era.

It's just preference. For me it's slicker, better, bolder, well acted and stunning to watch.

But some people prefer the RTD approach.

It's funny how a score of 7 to some people can be a 6 or an 8 to others.

With these surveys I either rank 1,5 or 10: if I didn't enjoy it (1), if it was a good episode (5) or whether or not my socks were blown off (10).

Some people do expect way too much from an episode on a tight budget in 45 minutes but just because an episode ranks as a 1 or 5 doesn't mean I don't like the show as I still watch it and my scores have got higher as the series finds it feet.

I LOVE Steven Moffat at the helm.

If I could I would have him write every episode. Under Steven the show has gone from strength to strength in not just how it looks and feel but the quality of stories and casting of decent actors to international viewing figures and awards.

I disagree with a few of your points against (Moffat tinted glasses off)

I don't think on a few occasions he is written for children as more adults are tuning in and although some aliens are made for comic relief purposes all I can say is RTD and farting aliens, Love & Monsters, Adipose, etc. I do agree with the Christmas specials and for once I'd love to have a Christmas special but not set at Christmas just a longer episode.

However, I think the man is such a smart cookie and to have arcs spanning years, quality sets (even though this season has been some questionable CGI graphics), great actors and loveable characters I'd love to see him in charges for years to come!

What a unique title!

I like some of the theories you've thought of and you're take on them.

I think you missed out "A Family Man" as an option but to not have the Doctor And the TARDIS is like having eggs and no bacon, salt and no pepper. They go hand in hand

Although each series has its gens I thought season 6 just topped it for me.

The 2 part opener, the stunning scenery, The Doctors Wife, AGMGTW, Let's Kill Hitler, The God Complex and the Girl Who Waited, the budget, acting, the little 6 week break it was all just perfect.

I loved series 5 and series 7 too but 8 ranks the lowest for me

If there is a movie to be made please let it not be penned by RTD but Steven Moffat instead. I can imagine RTD doing the 50th you would have had Captain Jack singing and dancing and it would have been awful! Don't get me wrong there were a few episodes were RTD delivered a great script but I always felt his 2 partners lacked especially after the cliff hanger and this isn't a Moffat V RTD debate. The cinema showings of DOTD and Deep Breathe were good. Given Moffat the budget for a movie and what it roar!

Some tough choices to make.

Only easy was was the CGI/ Graphics - I thought they went down hill spfrom Listen which is a shame as they are no where near as good as season 6 or 7.

I thought the Visual effects were slightly disappointing starting to go down hill from Listen with only Flatline looking absolutely great. No where near as good as series 6.I think the sleigh ride was awful as it was so CGI'ed (but I did get a really good HDTV). I voted flatline.

I thought the Dream Crabs were good as was the inside of the base and Clara's house but The Reindeers and the sleigh was very poor indeed. It was so CGI'ed the Doctor and crew stood out like a sore thumb. The episode was better than I thought but not stand out brilliant like A Christmas Carol or The Snowmen. I think the CGi graphics in the past series have been really poor indeed. Although it's a small part in an otherwise great run of episodes it's like the icing on a cake. They are really bad lately with that green screen.

True, fair point. However, usually with trailers you get a fairly gut impression of what the next episode will be like. This just looks child like.

However, Steven Moffat hasn't disappointed me yet so hopefully it will be good
