Why the hell do so many people hate Cold War? I'm not too fond of it myself (I would only give it a 6/10) but damn people on here seem to seriously hate it.

Series 7 is the worst series in my opinion and part 2 in particular is the absolute nadir of the revival:

The Bells Of ST John: Aliright, I guess- 6/10

The Rings Of Akhaten: Why does this get so much hate? OK, it's not perfect, but it's good- 7/10

Cold War: Meh. It's OK- 6/10

Hide: Dull, boring, unwatchable, lazy- 3/10

JTTCOTT: I don't even need to explain why this is bad- 3/10

The Crimson Horror: I DESPISE IT! Such a badly written, OTT, unfunny, nonsensical piece of garbage with a bunch of ideas that don't link together at all. Worst episode ever!- 1/10

Nightmare In Silver: Meh- 5/10

The Name Of The Doctor: An admittedly enjoyable finale, but still not great- 7/10

Oh, and as for TDTWATW and The Snowmen:

The Snowmen: Meh- 5/10

Well, he's easily going to be a great doctor.


Let's just hope Moffat's writing is more up to the quality of The Girl In The Fireplace, Blink and Day Of The Doctor rather than Let's Kill Hitler.

@supermoff   The Girl In The Fireplace is Moffat's best work IMO

@MaraBackman @supermoff   Series 5 didn't match up to the quality of Series 1, 3 and 4, but it was definitely in a good series. But I thought Series 6 and 7 were both pretty damn rubbish overall, despite some good episodes. So I am pretty mixed on the Moffat era overall.

So, 10/10 for everything except The Power Of Three?

Personally, I enjoyed The Power Of Three more than anything else in Series 7. (9/10)


As for the others:

Asylum was pretty good after re-watching, but it's still pretty damn overrated- 7/10

Dinosaurs was alright (don't get why people hate it)- 6.5/10

A Town Called Mercy was ABSOLUTE RUBBISH!- 3/10

Angels Take Manhattan has plot holes, yes, but it's still pretty good- 7.5/10

I absolutely hate, hate, HATE it when people refer to Matt's regeneration as the "sneeze regeneration" or mark the regeneration down because of the quick change

1. A regeneration does NOT need fancy special effects to be good

2. He ALREADY let out all the energy on the clock tower, so OF COURSE he's going to change quick

3. I suppose you have a problem with regenerations 1-4?

4. Can you honestly imaging Matt's face morphing into Capaldi's? NO

5. The quick change was fittingly shocking and gave Capaldi's first appearance more impact

6. The point is Matt's final speech was much more effective and true to the character of the doctor than Tennant's pathetic, character butchering "I don't want to go" line.


So there. That is why Matt's regeneration is  BY FAR the superior regeneration to the GOD AWFUL 10-11 one.

While I think the regeneration seemed a bit tacked on, and it didn't make sense after the clock tower regeneration, on it's own it's a pretty damn good regeneration. Certainly much better than.........

The last regeneration (*Shudder*)

@robohappy @BobbieBob It's completely fine that Strax is a comedic character, because he's a nurse and is considered the joke of his race (as stated in A Good Man Goes To War) So I'm fine with Strax being a comedy character. What I DIDN'T like was Moffat presenting other Sontarans as comedy characters in Time Of The Doctor. That was a bit of a stupid decision.

Seriously, why do you specifically mention The Rings Of Akhaten and not any other episode in Series 7? In terms of developing Clara's character, Rings was hands down Clara's best episode. And if she was supposedly "too clingy" in that episode, then why did she CHALLENGE the doctor and reminded him of his promise to "not walk away"? And she went off on her own and ended up helping Merry. And in case you didn't notice, SHE was the one who saved everyone, not the doctor.


So where has this thing about her being "clingy" come from?


No offense, but I can't help but think you mentioned Rings just because it's the most unpopular episode from the series.

The Moff's got a point. He has referred to himself as "the eleventh" at some points (The Lodger) but he was just referring to his face. He's never ONCE referred to himself as "The ____ Doctor"

While Big Finish got off to a REALLY bad start with The Sirens Of Time, they improved and have produced some of the best Doctor Who stories ever written.


My favorite would have to be The Holy Terror, which starts off as a supposed comedic pantomime as you say, but then becomes one of the best and darkest and most horrifying stories ever written.


Happy birthday, Big Finish!

@Thesilence_1994 Gatiss is a pretty average writer in my view, although I liked Night Terrors. As for Thompson, I'm in the very huge minority of fans who actually like Curse Of The Black Spot, but it was still an admittedly underwhelming episode. And JTTCOTT was complete rubbish. So, another not very good writer.

@Christoph1337 @Gustaff  The leaf ending was the PERFECT ending. The point of the episode was that "what came before" (The doctor's memories) was powerful and special, but "what could have been" (The leaf) was even MORE powerful and special. I'm not sure many people get that.


Oh, and Martha was a great companion.
