Doctor Who (series 8) ep 12

Doctor Who Review: S08E12 — Death In Heaven

As I mentioned in my review of Dark Water, Steven Moffat doesn't have the greatest track record when it comes to concluding two parters. Indeed if there's one crit­i­cism you can always levy at him it's that he tries to cram too many ideas into his stories. I loved Dark Water which kept the action going from begin­ning to end and set up multiple cliffhangers for the season finale. But would Death In Heaven be able to deliver? Yes and no. There are some really strong elements to Death In Heaven with the inter­ac­tion between Missy and The Doctor being right there at the top of the list. But there's also some clever use of imagery and  a solid reso­lu­tion to the Danny/Clara rela­tion­ship as well. Looking purely at the plot outlines almost every­thing is right.

What's Your Doctor Who Birthday Episode?

<a href="http://www.eoghann.com/2014/06/doctor-birthday-episode/the-time-monster-part-2" rel="attachment wp-att-119465">Doctor Who spans a lot of years (with gaps) which means it's ideal for this type of thing where you type in your date of birth and it finds the episode that aired closest to your birthday.

Doctor Who Re-Review: S07E07 — The Bells of Saint John

 When reviewing The Bells of Saint John for the first time my take­away was that this was a solid but unex­cep­tional episode that used a lot of familiar elements. After a re-watch I think that's still broadly true. It's certainly not the strongest episode of the season and the Spoon­heads with their revolving head gimmick are clearly very similar to The Winders in The Beast Below, only not quite as effec­tive. There's not a lot of depth to the story either. It's very much a rein­tro­duc­tion to The Doctor and what he does.
