Interesting that Series 6 has both the top number of dream and nightmare runs. Still my favourite series because of those amazing moments, and Amy and Rory's characterisation and relationship during the series. Also disappointed Parting Of The Ways didn't nip Name of the Doctor in the butt.

Disappointed that the The Beast Below is here. An incredibly incredibly underrated story and was my personal vote.

I love John Hurt's reactions to 10/11, pretty much pointing out the things that people complain most about them. 


Age - "Even that one!?" 

Sonics - "Why are you pointing your screwdrivers at me!? They're scientific instruments, not water pistols!" 

Less science-talk. - "Timey-what!?

Romance - "Is there a lot of this in the future?"

 A simple, great episode of Doctor Who. There just isn't anything to fault really. A really fun story, a great roster of characters with some brilliant one liners. But it is not without a touch of darker tones, from both Solomon’s mass genocide, just for money, but also from the Doctor at the end. A bit of a pre-shadowing to The Doctor's behaviour in A Town Called Mercy. 10/10

Great, promising start, that just doesn't deliver. Never really found it a very gripping story. Although the ending scene with Ponds is just so beautiful, and I guess disappointingly is the best bit of the episode.

It was a great episode, but I will admit that this is where River's story starts to drop. Her love and adoration for the Doctor comes on so suddenly from being all psychopathy and trying to kill him. We see nothing of River and The Doctor's developing relationship that we were promised all those years ago back in The Library.

10/10! Best episode of the Smith/Moffat era. I love everything about it. Filled with plot twists and surprises, suspense from start to finish. But what I love this most of all, because we see an angry, vengeful Doctor, getting back at his enemy for messing with his best friends. And we see the Doctor as this mysterious figure again, and why and what makes his enemies so afraid.

Donna's departure was probably the most shockingly heartbreaking though, because I didn't know she was leaving. Having been so attached the character and seeing her just go so suddenly and forgetting everything she'd done was just awful, and I remember being so outraged and completely gutted.

For me I didn't find 10's departure was heartbreaking as such. It was more the sadness of  "We're never going to see him as the Doctor again." It was very much the same feelings for 11's, but seeing both little Amelia running past all the drawings, and Amy's appearance along with those feelings makes it more so.

For me, there have only been two moments when I've properly teared up. 


1. Rory having to make the decision to leave old Amy outside the TARDIS in The Girl Who Waited. 

2. 11's regeneration and Amy appearance at the end. 

My other top 5 though are 

3. 10 wiping Donna's memory and her having to forget everything she'd seen with him... So heartbreaking.

4. Watching the Pond's get zapped back in time, for him to not see them again.

5. 10's "I'm going to die" scene/ 10's massive fit after Wilf's 'four knocks' and realising he's going to die after all.

Incredible, INCREDIBLY underrated episode. Everyone knocks this because they compare it to the climactic, big story-arc episodes. As a stand alone Doctor Who episode, it's great. I love it. Fun characters and one liners, a story of love and greed. Very emotional ending, if you forget about Rory's past deaths. 8/10. Definitely deserves more love.

My #2 episode of the whole Moffat/Matt Smith era (#1 is Good Man Goes To War)... Just an incredible opener to my personal favourite series. Dramatic and fast paced from start to finish. Never a moment across the entire two episodes where the performances drop and the story dries out. And, the final 'You should kill us all on sight" climax is still my favourite scene from Matt's era. His performance is...just incredible.
