@SGMusic It would've been nice to perhaps to see a spin off or continuation from SJA Series 5.

It appears there's a divide. We have either Team Luke or Team Sky (or neither.) It is obvious I'm rooting for Sky, but I'm not dismissing Luke for a potential return. This has been mentioned in the article to help introduce to Sky into a Doctor Who episode. The reason I thought Sky should return more than Luke was because Sky wasn't given the chance to be explored in Doctor Who and she only had a short run. Luke has already been in Doctor Who (The Stolen Earth/Journey's End and a cameo in The End of Time), not mention his encounter with the timelord in The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith. Plus, there isn't much you can do with Luke now (I'm not saying there's nothing you can add to Luke's character.) I just felt it was fair for Sky that she returned and be explored with to the same degree as her co-stars. There is still plenty Sky has to offer. Also, I, plus many others, were only thinking of a one-off episode for Sky's return.

Is everyone fretting over the design of the Sonic Screwdriver? Personally I'm more excited about the new monster and what Series 8 has to offer rather than Capaldi getting a new screwdriver.

6/10. The episode had everything until the climax came along. The villain in question was not a siren but a hologram doctor from an alternative universe. A bit anti-climactic. Though I find the episode still re watchable.

9/10. Utterly Amazeballs. Stunning visuals, fantastic plot, superb director and a flawless cast. Not perfect, but nothing really is. I think The Legs, The Nose and Mrs. Robinson would be proud.

A Christmas Carol. Definitely a step back from the other Doctor Who Christmas episodes. The episode proves there's no need for an alien enemy for the episode to be gripping. It certainly filled the criteria for a Christmas episode and Matt Smith fits comfortably like two matching jigsaw puzzle pieces into the role of The Doctor, even more so than in Series 5. However I find that A Christmas Carol doesn't fit to well for casual viewing. 7/10. Personally, I think Matt had a fantastic first series.

I loved The Pandorica Opens. Full of fast paced moments along with a concrete story. The Big Bang, to me, had a lighter, less dramatic tone to its predecessor (I found the Sonic Ex Machina a tad irritating) though both parts are whimsical and full of fun. 7/10

I thoroughly loved The Hungry Earth. It kept me on the edge and was riddled with tension and mystery. It was near faultless in execution. Cold Blood, in my opinion, lost some of the drama which The Hungry Earth had. The direction of Cold Blood wasn't entirely snappy and edgy and the script seemed a bit out of place (in terms of dialogue and characterisation, particularly with the Silurians.) However both parts are consistent with the use of dark, harsher tones and the episode doesn't have to end on an uplifting note to make an impact on the viewer, something which Chibnall achieved with the death of Rory and how peace was so nearly achieved but was scuppered by Humans and Silurians waring with each other. Overall 6/10.

Superb. A really magnificent story which is superior in both theory and execution. The Dream Lord is a perfectly taunting villain and the concepts are to die for (pun sort of intended.) The only flaw with this episode is the choice of title. I'm to sure if it's perfectly fitting with the episode, but that's only a minor nitpick. 9/10

A thrilling nine. Perhaps the ending could've been tackled greater in the VFX department but overall, a true Doctor Who classic. This episode has everything you need for a truly entertaining Doctor Who episode. 9/10

It is one of those episodes in which all the positive verbs you can use cannot even describe how stupendously magical and dramatic Vincent and the Doctor is. 10/10

Asides from the anticlimactic ending, I thoroughly enjoyed The Vampires of Venice. The plot was concrete and the humour is well balanced with the sci-fi and drama. Besides, who can't forget The Doctor bursting out of the cake? 8/10.

8/10. A very defiant episode and I really loved the added twists to the Weeping Angels, though I do feel the episode needed a greater impact to further express Moffat's writing. Perhaps a new director.
