Waters Of Mars, no question. Not just the best of the specials, but maybe Tennant's best episode. Tremendous setting and cast, and the perfect cautionary tale of what can happen when The Doctor lets his power go to his head. I even want to come to Gadget's defence - he was supposed to be a cobbled-together, slightly rubbish robot. He reminded me of a lot of the silly movie robots of the 70s / 80s like Johnny Five or the Silent Running robots - and he even got to have a slightly tragic ending.

No problem with 12 using 11's sonic, they are the same man after all. From Pertwee to McGann (even Hurt), all the sonics were variations on a theme, and 9 & 10 practically used the same one. 


For some reason it feels too forced and artificial if a new Doctor means a new sonic every time. It feels like it would only be redesigned for merchandising reason. That said, I wouldn't be surprised if 12 tinkers with the current sonic though, a slight tweak here and there: a different coloured handle, the ability to glow a colour other than green perhaps?

The Doctor-lite (and companion-lite episodes) are great for exploring the wider DW universe. I think Love & Monsters had nice moments, but the Absorbaloff was just too silly. Blink and Turn Left are truly great episodes and totally deserve their fan-love - great examples of what that type of episode can do. 


Ultimately though - they just enrich each season, shake up the format a bit. I'd hate to see too many of them, but one per season is great.
