Some Random Thoughts: I love Matt's era, and am just glad to see so many of his episodes placed highly. I voted based on enjoyment and importance of each story to the overall plot of the season. It's sad to see so many of his great episodes, like Rings of Akhaten, be so low on my list. However, this only goes to show the quality of the series. Even the 4/10s are fun, enjoyable episodes; however, they are flawed. I will not forget one day of this, not one. I will always remember when the "Best of Matt Smith " polls were me (procrastinating at extremely dangerous amounts).

I can't believe that A Town Called Mercy, Hide, and Nightmare in Silver were this low! Especially Mercy. That was not the most action-packed episode, but it was a great philosophical look into the Doctor, and actually presented a real moral problem. Classic Whithouse stuff. AND COWBOYS!

Interesting so far, I must say. Although Night Terrors, for me at least, should be in the middle, and Vampires of Venice should be in the next list or two. Let's wait and see, though; I can't wait for tomorrow.

With the exception of the Vigil and the overuse of the Sonic, this episode is actually incredibly brilliant. It does take a few watches to really get, but the simplicity and integration of music throughout the story really make this story fantastic. 8/10 for me
