Wait, you didn't like Rise of the Cybermen? There is something wrong with you. It's one of Tennant's best episodes of all time.
Tennant's best episodes are ones like Blink, Gridlock, Silence in the Library, Midnight or Waters of Mars. Ones that like.. actually try? Thankfully the writer of the abhorrent Rise of the Cybermen redeemed himself with my favourite New Who episode to date, The Girl Who Waited.

I loved Journeys End. It was a piece of art.

You have the worst Doctor Who taste of all-time. You seem to hold intelligent writing in contempt and genuinely seem to desire the series to be as stupid and simplistic as possible. I'm glad you're not getting your way.
YUCK YUCK YUCK! As I remember, I didn't like Blink much, I hate Doctor less episodes, Gridlock was average if that, SITL was quite good, Midnight was suprisingly good, but average, and waters of mars was a gooden. The girl who waited? THE GIRL WHO WAITED????? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU????????/ That's in y top ten worst episodes of all time. Awfull soppy episode. Obe of the episodes which made me hate the Ponds even more.

No sorry, but you have one of the worst dr. who taste ever. Alot of people agree with me and think RTD is such a good writer and complicated stuff issn't the right way to go. You know one day whether it be many years or not, I will be getting my way again, so yeah.......

Tell me are you American by any chance? It seems that the Yankees have different taste to the Brits (I'm British BTW).
I know Dalekjim gets some stick for his passionate views of Trek, but I'm going to have to agree with him that the Girl that Waited was utterbrilliance, as for the other episodes on his list, they were all very good, Blink was one of the best episodes made under RTD and Dalekjim's nationality shouldn't matter one tiny bit.

As for your complaints about the episode being complicated? Are you actually being serious? It was pretty straight forward to be honest, so straight forward only Richard Hammond could cock it up if he were driving along it. If you're actually serious and going to vote an episode down because you don't understand it, I'm afraid that's your shortcoming and more a reflection on yourself, not the episiodes. It's like getting in a huff because of asking a question, being told the correct thing, but not want you to hear.

As for the episode, I liked it, I thought it was a jolly good romp in a few parts, the flashback scene was fun, almost a bit sherlocky in the music and editing, the Yorkshire accent on the two of them was hysterical.

Towards the end, it did feel a bit odd though but I'll just put that down to the change in tone, the somewhat out of place jokes while still in Yorkshire and then the set up for next weeks assimilated where it looks like The Doctor gets (partly) assimilated!
