The only episode that I felt had no pacing issues was "A Town Called Mercy". Every other episode felt rushed. The worst one was "The Power of Three". I feel that behind the scenes that something was going on with Doctor Who this year. Whatever that was, it had an impact on the series. For me, this has been a disappointing season. I feel that they need to hire better writers who can work within the confines of the 45 minute episode.
