I  love the story arcs Steven Moffat has brought in. 

The problem with story arcs is that a very small group of fans (yet, somehow very loud group of fans) tend to moan that it didn't go the way they thought it was going to when it gets resolved.

It was tempting to pick Neil but I voted Richard Curtis. Vincent and The Doctor everytime

True, I did, but it's like watching a 2 parter: you can still give us a score out of 10 on parts 1 and 2. My only conclusion is that it has blown the socks of DWTV and they are busy trying to find them to give us a score. I'd love to have their job.. Do you have vacancies?!

And the score out of /10 is, DWTV.... drum roll...

Only 5?!

How about 32 as that's how old he is...

I love Matt Smith as the Doctor. He was my Doctor.

It was very good apart from the ending. No offence but her resister should have remained missing. I think I should do an early review of next weeks episodes

Hope Mary Poppins, I mean Missy, lives up to the hype. Steven Moffat never disappoints....

1 week, 1 day ago on Death in Heaven Official Synopsis


Please take out "not so fan favourite". I really enjoyed it! True, it was not as good as The Doctors Wife but not everything is and you don't refer to writers like Mark Gatiss or Richard Curtis (Vincent And The Doctor) as "not as good as Steven Moffat"

Ill watch it and judge for myself.

I thought Flatline was a great episode and the review score was different.

1 week, 2 days ago on In the Forest of the Night Advance Review


Everyone's a critic...

I loved it. No big words needed to reinforce this with anyone.

It's a 45 minute TV programme, not a thesis. Chill.

1 week, 3 days ago on 2nd Opinion: Flatline


That was this seasons "Vincent and The Doctor".

That was "The Doctors Wife"

That was brilliant.

Absolutely enjoyable and the graphics were great

I thought the scene looked so much slicker, better and very contemporary in HD. It looked completely different to the main episode. But I loved it! I voted for Clara

3 weeks, 3 days ago on Kill the Moon: Clara or the Doctor?


Well done! A beautiful article and really close to home. I really enjoyed reading your points and it was very well balanced. At the end of the day, it's only a show (but a great show).

3 weeks, 3 days ago on Doctor Who and The Hype Train


Why are people (mostly fans) over analysising, questioning, looking at alternative sources, doing their own reports and say "include this, dont include that".?!

The ratings are healthy. The ratings are fine. And the AI is an indication. There are some episodes I think have been good, not great so AI of 82/84 etc is fine.

3 weeks, 5 days ago on Doctor Who Series 8 UK Ratings Accumulator


Very good. Not as good as Doctor Who TV made out but I hate... Hate... Kids on the TARDIS. A few dodge CGI effects but entertaining. However I thought the scene at the end was great. I thought it was written by Steven Moffat and it just seemed like it was shot completely differently to the actual story: it seemed slicker, better and edgier.

3 weeks, 6 days ago on Rate & Discuss Kill the Moon


Whilst Listen was great and Into the Dalek and Deep Breath had its moments, although I do miss Matt Smith and The Ponds, I think the 2nd half is where it all kicks off...

4 weeks ago on Thoughts on Series 8 at the Halfway Point


I really thought the Unicorn and the wasp was worst than Fear Her. It didn't make any sense. Panet of the Dead was just an embarrassment. The Lodger and The Caretaker were only decent ones. I'm surprised he keeps getting asked back but I prefer his scripts under Steven Moffat

4 weeks, 1 day ago on Face-Off: Gareth Roberts’ Episodes


Regardless of what Critics write its viewings figures that count. Whether reviews are good or bad I still watch and make up my own mind

1 month ago on 2nd Opinion: The Caretaker


It's so hard to find a favourite episode of The Ponds... Each is great but others are better. Steven Moffat really outdid himself in casting and writing for them.

1 month ago on Remembering the Ponds – 2 Years On


Is this similar to the Star Trek Red shirt scenario?

1 month ago on Next Time: Kill The Moon


Doctor Who TV I think I need to replace you as a critic. I would give this a well deserved 8/10 NOT 6/10. It was enjoyable, funny and actioned packed with zingers of 1 liners. Brilliant,

1 month ago on Rate & Discuss The Caretaker


Absolutely right... They have come a far way from where they were. Series 6 and 7 graphics were great this series just seems very CGI'ed base. Although when I watch on my iPad as opposed to my TV it's not as bad

1 month ago on Kill The Moon Clip


Although this story looks absolutely great and I cannot wait I think the CGI in some of these episodes has been shockingly bad: the spiders look good but very obviously computer generated and very badly added in, the spaceship,scene at the end of Roberts of Sherwood

1 month ago on Kill The Moon Clip


Could not agree more. I watch the show to be ENTERTAINED. It was a very enjoyable and entertaining episode. I doubt even the writers of episodes over analyse as much as some fans do.

1 month, 2 weeks ago on 2nd Opinion: Listen


Wow! I honestly thought I would get a bit of backlash from that comment. As I said (and a few others have mentioned it too) I watch to be entertained. It was an very entertaining and engaging episode. If people wish to overanalyse wih themes, sub plot, music complements, etc I just think that sometimes a person writes a programme just to write a programme and not show how clever they are combining different elements. I think my university computing dissertation was less deep than this article. However, it's still cool to know fans care.

1 month, 2 weeks ago on Listen Review


This will probably get me a not of negative comments from this but although this is an absolutely amazing article and such an indepth look about how music balances out scenes and subliminal messages... I often think maybe fans read too much into Doctor Who episodes.

I sit down to be entertained and enjoyed and to know there are a few vocal fans (not necessary in this article) who write all about character development and look far too much into meanings and scenes and music complementing scenes... Sometimes I think Steven Moffat and crew just write an episode and don't even think of some of the angles fans write articles on.

It was a great episode. I don't have a poor vocabulary to go into depth about why, I just choose to enjoy it. Although it's a great article to talk a lot about things I wouldn't even consider doesn't make me close minded or limited, it's just a TV episode. Overall though a great piece of writing - even though I never would have thought to write about such things.

There was. When the sheet came down when they were all looking out of the window you can see an out of focus alien head looking at them... That was the Most terrifying part

This show is in such safe hands. Absolutely amazing episode

1 month, 2 weeks ago on Rate & Discuss Listen


I must admit there were times in Deep Breath that I had difficulty understand the Doctor. However, it was more to do with the surrounding noise and just needing to turn the TV volume up (and iPad on re watching).

The new Daleks very great and the effects were superb.

Although I think Marks writing gets better each year

1 month, 3 weeks ago on Face-Off: The Gatiss Episodes


Absolutely true! I'm available for Christmas special too.... May not be asked.

And if Clara and Co. Do appear it could always be flashback scenes...

1 month, 3 weeks ago on Danny’s Future Beyond Series 8


Enjoyable! It was beautifully shot (bar the very bad CGI at the end).

Very enjoyable comedy romp... And next week looks amazing.

I thought the casting of a Robin Hood was amazing

1 month, 3 weeks ago on Rate & Discuss Robot of Sherwood


I hope Steven Moffat never leaves. Steven and his vision has taken the show from strength to strength and has made the show an incredible success with audiences far and wide. Steven Moffat and team have done an amazing job and made the show a lot more credible. I hope he never leaves.

1 month, 4 weeks ago on Horowitz on Showrunner Rumours


I really enjoyed this episode. The pacing, the scenes in the school reminded me of Sherlock, the wise cracking Doctors remarks to Clara and some good put-downers. The only thing was it looked very, very badly CGI'ed in a few parts. And I don't like the Bookcases in the TARDIS wall, but that's just personal preference and doesn't take the focus from a excellent script.

2 months ago on Rate & Discuss Into the Dalek


I may be alone but I don't like the new title sequence: it's too obviously GCI (and not in a good way). I saw another internet series 8 title sequence with the TARDIS flying through Gallifry above lava pits and it looked brilliant.

I actually prefer the early versions of the RTD era more as it was so fast paced -something which Stephen Moffats scripts are.

However, I am sure it will grow on me.

2 months ago on Examining Series 8’s New Title Sequence


11th hour set the scene for Series 5

Although I prefer that to Deep Breath it could change at the end of the series

I still do miss Matt Smith

2 months ago on Face-Off: The Eleventh Hour vs Deep Breath


Thought it would be higher like the 11th hour but still very respectable. I would expect it to jump to around the 8m mark. Maybe they should show the series in Jan/Feb when it's dark outside as the 11th hour was shown at Easter in April

A beautiful episode!

When Amy present meets Amy future through dancing - that music was epic.

And the twist at the end... Dark!

I am sure all will be great and if you did a poll at the end of series 8 the results will be so different...

A lot of people looked forward to The Gunslinger and Angels in Manhattan came out as top

2 months, 1 week ago on Anticipating Breath, Dalek, Robots, Listen, Heist & Caretaker


I think it will be a classic villian... Maybe Omega, the Sea Devils, The Valeyard or someone like that. Steven Moffat said he was done with The Master for a while so cannot wait to see who it is. I've avoided all spoilers (bar one)

2 months, 1 week ago on Capaldi on Coleman Leaving Rumours


Although I think this will be a great episode it's the least one I'm looking forward to. Victory of the Daleks still remains my favourite Mark Gatis episode but there are other episodes in this series I am looking forward to a lot more

If I had my way Steven Moffat would write every episode. The man has a wonderful imagination and I would love to see how he takes this series. I hope he stays as head Writer for the long term.
