While I thought the Ponds overstayed their welcome a bit, and Clara wasn't really used as well as she should have been, I still found myself loving a LOT of the episodes this season:
Asylum, Town Called Mercy, Power of 3, Manhattan, Snowmen, Bells, Hide, Journey to Centre of Tardis, and Name of the Doctor.
The only ones that did absolutely nothing for me were Dinosaurs, Cold War, Crimson Horror and Nightmare in Silver (even though I know some people absolutely love them).
Everything else was kinda in between. Which is frankly about the same ratio of good to bad as every other
season of the show.
