Are you seriously trying to compare "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" with "Blackwater"? Sure, Doctor Who is a great show, but it's a silly adventure series. It's not epic. With Game of Thrones each episodes feels like an event which means you don't feel ripped off for only getting 10 episodes a season.
Nope but I did see these silly epics called The Avengers and The Hobbit without feeling ripped off, Dinosaurs on a Spaceship is quite similar.

I'm not criticizing Doctor Who for being a lighter show than Game of Thrones. I'm not criticizing Doctor Who at all. My point is that Game of Thrones goes for a more epic scope with its episode structure while Doctor Who's episodes, well, don't. It takes a hell of a lot more work to produce one episode of Game of Thrones than it does Doctor Who, so audiences accept the shorter run time. Doctor Who has no such excuse.
