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!

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 enjoyed Clara's unconventional introduction in Asylum of the Dalek's and loved how she interacted with the doctor in the Christmas special. I was rather surprised with how choppy and confusing season 7's episodes were. Frequently the episodes just started with The Doctor and Clara on a planet with no explanation of why or how they arrived. The episodes started off decently but just as the story was getting interesting, they ended with everything working out perfectly almost too perfectly in my humble opinion.

I watched all the episodes but most of theme were just a chore to watch and as a whovian for nearly 5 years that puzzled me. The magic of the previous seasons was just missing in a way i can't really properly explain. The episode with the children annoyed me so much especially when the girl screeched at the Cyberman "leave me alone, I hate you". For me at least Clara is just too infuriatingly perfect. She is perfectly witty, flirty and adorable which i liked at first but eventually got tired of. The impossible girl story arc got annoying and in general season 7 part 2 was a disappointment for me. I hope next season things will have a fresh approach and the show can get back to it's roots.

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.

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].

Firstly, a big fan of the doctor, been with him since, well the beginning.

Russel Davies, and "his" relaunch, loved that stuff (if you get the chance, read his book(s) on the matter, very interesting behind the scenes anecdotes)...

I liked Eccleston (sp?), and it sounded like there was a lot of behind the scenes politics behind his leaving. To this day, he's still not spoken openly on what drove him or forced him to leave.

(Yes, Virginia, I'm getting to it, give me a bit more time).

Tennant and Davies leaving at the same time.... Well, that smacks of more unpublished background anecdotes that I would love to hear about some time.

Moffat's first run, okay, the man overused paradoxen... paradoxies? anyway, those seasons in conjunction with Davies and immediately after jumped several sharks, but were still very good.

Then there was an announcement that "we're going to go simpler now, no extended episodes, plots, etc." lived through a lot of that.

Then we get to the whole River Sung wedding and beyond.... Extremely unlikely, contrived, but enjoyable 4.5 rating.

(Let's call it Season 7)

For the most part, it was to my mind an overly maudlin, drawn out farewell to Rorey and Amy.

I loved those characters, really really enjoyed them, but a whole half a season with cruise control on to bid them a farewell?

And the way that they were eliminated?!? Really, I could drive a Mac truck through the logic holes in that whole thing.

Doctor can't bring them back? So, what, he could still in his world go visit if nothing else.

And River? Doctor married, then *poof* gone.

Budgetwise I can understand it, plotwise, not so much. (that part, I'd give a 3.
