Re: dr who season 7 review

Asylum of the Daleks: 6/10: Disappointment, as I thought this was going to be one of Smiths best episodes. Instead what we get is an improvement on Victory of the Daleks, but still not really any competition for any RTD Dalek stories. Okay, maybe Daleks in Manhattan/Evolution of the Daleks, but other than that, far worse. The painful thing is it's a fantastic concept if not one of the best ever, but such poor execution. Oneepisode was nowhere near long enough to do the story justice. Felt too cramped. Maybe it was two parts I might have been more generous, and also, not enough old daleks. Just a load of RTD daleks running around. An improvement over the Moffat ones, but I wanted to see some classic daleks! Plus a lot of the story was about Clara.

Dinosaurs on a Spaceship: 4.5/10: Actually not that bad. After a huge disappointment at the time with the previous episode, I thought to myself "dinosaurs on a spaceship, this is one of the worst ideas ever". Wasn't hateable. Was enjoyable to a degree, but also had some awful elements. The Doctors "gang" which had pretty much nothing to do with the plot at all whatsoever. Just used to fill the cast up really. And when the doctor rode a dinosaur, I thought I'd died and was burning in hell.

A Town Called Mercy: 2/10: A piece of shit. I knew from the beginning this was going to be bad and I was right. Some really corny elements such as the cowboy music, and was just bad in general. Plus I hate westerns anyway. But this was particular bad.

The Power of Three: 6.5/10: A nice breath of fresh air. After the soul crushing disappointment of the first three episodes, I was pleasantly surprised with this one. Although the concept is utterly retarded (little black boxes for fucks sake, it's like a blue peter competition winner wrote it), it was quite enjoyable. A nice return to RTD style episodes. Plus for once, I didn't want to kill Amy and Rory. Just stab them a few times. :P Plus the doctor was quite amusing.

The Time of Angels: 8/10: By far Matt Smiths best episode of all time. Entertaining, fun, and just sums up what all of Moffat era episodes should be like. The angels were great.

The Snowmen: 7/10: I thought this was going to suck (snowmen, come on!), plus The previous Xmas specials have been literally the worst two episodes in doctor who history ever. But this as a pleasant surprise. Plus a new companion, TARDIS, and title sequence to look forward to! Not too shabby, the only thing I didn't like was the bloody detective trio. I hope we've seen the last of them!

The Bells of Saint John: 7.5/10: Not bad! I was actually quite looking forward to this one as it's almost a new show at that point, and the last few episodes have been good. Was a great episode actually, although the spoon heads were a bit of a silly concept, I quite liked them. They were like a cross between 60s Who and RTD Who. The whole episode itself reminded me of RTDs late run, it was a nice flashback to then.

The Rings of Akhaten: 1/10: Seriously? How the hell was this even allowed to be green lighted? This is appalling! One of the worst three episodes of all time. It was a fucking musical, Christ! The starting few minutes were great though, a nice flashback to RTDs era. But as soon as that little brat showed up, it went painfully downhill. This will forever be remembered as a shit bomb. How could I actually think the show was staying good forever?

Cold War: 8/10: An excellent piece of Doctor Who! Perfect way to return the Ice Warriors! Reminded me nicely of "Dalek", probably the best Dalek episode of all time along with Bad Wolf/Parting of Ways and Revelation of the Daleks. One of Smiths best once again. I want to see more Ice Warriors in future!

Hide: 2.5/10: Bull shit. Was so boring, and the part at the end with the space woman was awful. An awful way to wrap up an awful episode. Was such a snooze fest.

Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS: 3/10: BORING! What's happened here, have we stepped into shitty episodeville again? Looks like it! When I first saw the new TARDIS in the Snowmen, I liked it a lot. Now I'm beginning to hate it with a passion. Funny as I didn't like Smiths first TARDIS much at the time, but I'm just warming to it. I like the new TARDIS's console and side console, but other than that, terrible. Plus the corridors are awful.

The Crimson Horror: 3/10: Please no please no more detective trios! This episode was a piece of bullshit, the crimson horror itself was laughable, something eve 80s Doctor Who would have thought twice about. The only good thing was that cute little creature at the end. :P

Nightmare in Silver: 5.5/10: Not bad! I like the new cybermen, but they do look a little plastic. Plus I'm starting to miss the RTD cybermen. The story itself was okayish, the soldiers reminded me of the ones from Earthshock. But the goal of this one was to make the cybermen scary again, and I feel this episode failed with that big time. Plus a lot of it was just with that cyber planner. Try again!

Name of the Doctor: 6/10: Not bad. I hated the fact that the detective trio were in it again, but I did love seeing the old doctors again which made it well worth the watch! As for the actual plot, average. Plus Clara's explanation was kinda lame.
