I've read a lot of reviews where people are saying it has gone down hill, they're not too fond of the writing style, or that it's not true to what Doctor Who is suppose to be. However, while watching this season I was also re-watching first and second seasons. I feel this season is a lot truer to the season than it has been the last 2 seasons. The whole crack in the continuum of time, etc, the Rory and Amy drama (although I love them), how everything was so intrinsically tied together in the past that if you literally blink, you probably missed something was a little thrown out of proporition.

This season still had a continuing theme ("the impossible girl") that left viewers at the edge of the seat, but still allowed the Doctor and his companion to go on glorious adventures that I felt was starting to get lost with Rory and Amy. I give this season a huge thumbs up, and I'm extremely anxious to see where it goes.

I don't know how I am going to last until November, though!

This half of the season starts off well with "The Bells of St. John," a clever and entertaining episode that properly introduces the Doctor's newest companion, Clara. The next episode, "The Rings of Akhaten," is visually appealing and has an interesting premise, but its ending is fairly predictable. "Akhaten" is not terrible, but it's definitely a step down from the previous episode. "Cold War," the most recent episode (as of this writing), is a bit of a dud, really. A monster on a submarine! They chase it, it chases them, and etc. Zzzzzzzzzz. For the second episode in a row, the heroes triumph by making an emotional appeal to the villain. With "Akhaten" and "Cold War," the show seems to be running on autopilot.

This is puzzling because one would think Doctor Who has access to the very best science-fiction (or science-fantasy) writers on Earth. There really should never be a sub-par episode (especially since they only make about thirteen or fourteen of them per year, not counting the Christmas special). In my view, the writing during Moffat's tenure as showrunner has been extremely uneven, perhaps because Moffat has not found someone to supplement his writing in the way that Moffat supplemented Davies's. Each season, some episodes are part of the main story arc, and the others fill in the spaces between the main-story-arc episodes. During the Davies years, Davies wrote most episodes for the main story arcs, and Moffat wrote many of the "filler" episodes, including classics like "The Girl in the Fireplace" and "Blink." Now that Moffat handles the main story arcs, someone else is writing all the "filler" stories. Sadly, these have not measured up to the level of Moffat's "filler" work. Basically, Moffat-the showrunner needs his own Moffat-the-"filler"-writer.

Doctor Who makes me smile like no other show on television. In a world sadly lacking in heroes, the Doctor stands alone. Brilliant, compassionate, selfless, he is the best in all of us. More human than the humans he relentlessly protects. I understand none of this specifically relates to the first episode of Season 7, Part 2, at least not on the surface. Look deeper, and I assure you it does. This episode is consistent with what's come before--which, while not sounding like high praise, is in fact the highest possible.

I want the doctor to be brilliant again; and arrogant, braggadocios, and really clever. The last few episodes he's been saved by luck, not his manic genius. I want the doctor back who says things like, "There's one thing you never put in a trap if you're smart, if you value your continued existence, if you have any plans about seeing tomorrow there's one thing you never ever put in a trap.....Me."

Bring the doctor back.

I didn't think anyone could replace Amy and Rory as the Doctor's companion. I was wrong. I love Clara. She's smart and funny, and gives the Doctor a reason to seek out new adventures with a fresh look at all the wonders of the universe.

Some may find this episode to be too epic for mid-season, however the climax was a truly beautiful testament to the life the Doctor has lived, the depth of sadness he feels. As a character piece this episode stands out among the best Matt Smith's tenure, giving the viewer a peek into this old soul at this core. The question this leaves lingering is: Will we see more of this as we make our way to what is sure to be an incredible anniversary? Will the unveiling of the mystery of Clara Oswald in turn bring us closer to the mystery of the Doctor?

When stories took the time they needed to play out. I think that limiting the episodes to a one hour time frame has hurt The Doctor. This isn't the first time that I've watched an episode and come away with the feeling that there should have been more. More development of characters, situations, and settings.
I would have liked more time in the bazaar, more development of the society we were in, more time in figuring out the menace, more of a confrontation than The Doctor yelling at a flaming smiley face.

This isn't really a factual review, so don't fault me on that.

I love Doctor Who, I love it in all of its regenerations over the years [except that movie *shudders*] yet the more I have watched with Moffat as the head writer the less I have liked it until I have reached now. I really can't place my finger on it, but nearly everything I love about Doctor Who has either vanished or is in some shadow form. I adore the Clara--she's brilliant. I thought that I would be loving the show more now that we have her. She's very much the traditional companion sort of character. However, it is like each episode leaves a sort of bad taste in my mouth. Whatever I came for I was not given. I realize that with rebooting everything back in '05 we have to be reintroduced to so many different people and introduced out of their own context [in this season, the Ice Warriors], but so much is lost with that. Idk, it still worked fairly well under Russel T Davis, not perfectly though... Moffat is always trying to top himself. Everything is bigger. This season seems like he has finally stopped from doing that, mercifully... maybe. Yet somehow it seems like he's turned to making platitudes. The Rings of Akhaten really felt like that. I never expected my Doctor Who to be deep or moving or necessarily dramatic. I'm not faulting him on not doing those things. I loved his writing before he was head writer and I love his Sherlock, but something about his Doctor Who feels so... empty.

I'm really writing this review because sometimes honest opinions are nice to see in reviews. Also because I guess I wanted the reviewing world to be a bit more balanced and not just filled with mostly one liners about how awesome something is [which is fine, but fairly unhelpful, let's face it].
