The truth about River Song is out and the time has come for the Doctor to face his greatest demons. Venturing across centuries and galaxies, the Doctor, Amy and Rory will encounter the greatest war criminal in all of history - and Hitler. Together, they'll discover there's no scarier place in the universe than a child's bedroom and a visit to an alien quarantine facility will reveal to Rory a very different side to his wife.

In a hotel where walls move, corridors twist and rooms vanish, death lies waiting. But the Doctor's time has yet to come. He has one last stop to make on his final journey - an old friend needs his help and an old foe must be defeated. But time catches up with us all and the Doctor can delay no more.

By the shores of Lake Silencio, in Utah, all of time and space hang in the balance. And a NASA astronaut is waiting.

Many people disliked the fact the series was split in two halves, and so did i at first. But this way we aren't as far from the christmas special.

Let's Kill Hitler: 8/10 A good start to the second half of the series, where we get to learn even more about River/ Melody, although the title suggests that the episode was to be focused on Hitler, but it really wasn't.

Night Terrors: 7/10 A good episode with some great acting from matt smith. The dolls are genuinely freaky, but the episode took a while to get going.

The Girl Who Waited: 8/10 An emotional episode with some lovely acting from Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill.

The God Complex: 8/10 A great episode that makes you think about your worst fears, much like Night Terrors. The ending is quite emotional.

Closing Time: 9/10 Set 200 years after the God Complex, for the doctor anyway, the cybermen return, as does Craig. I love the acting between craig and the doctor,and this episode brings a bit of light relief before the doctor faces his death.

The Wedding of River Song: 10/10 The Doctor heads to Utah, where he faces his death, and the Silence are waiting for him.

One thing I would say about the finale, is that even though it was fantastic, it didn't really feel like a finally, possibly because it was only a single episode, unlike previous series. There are only two double episodes in this series, rather than the usual three, and there weren't any in part 2 of the series.

 THE DEATH OF THE DOCTOR

| | See all THEMOORE's reviews (184)

While I would love to give this series a higher rating it pains me to have to mark it down so low. That being the case my issues with the series stem from the writing and the overall story arc rather than from the production values and the acting both of which are much more settled and in the case of the acting (especially of the three main leads) is brilliant! There is also a nice balance of old and new monsters cropping up (even in fleeting appearances)and the humour is still very present and very good for the best part of the series.

With regards to the acting, Matt Smith continues to be a fantastic lead as The Doctor (Tennant who?!) and is such a good actor that he can balance the comedy, serious and eccentric elements of the character very well and in relation to this series he certainly carries the show especially when the scripts are below par. Karen Gillan also continues to impress as Amy Pond (see The Girl Who Waited) with the character settling down much more this series and being better written while Arthur Darvill is equally as good as a companion and provides some brilliant relief with Smiths Doctor. The production values are also less of a worry this series with the most being made of the budget (despite rumours of it being cut) and the new elements (new tiles, theme tune etc) are now more settled and easier to get used to. The second half of the series also contains two fantastic episodes in: The Girl Who Waited and The God Complex while Night Terrors is a decent traditional romp and Closing Time provides some necessary light relief (just ignore the cop-out of an ending to the latter episode).

Sadly where this second run and the sixth series as a whole are let down is with the two story arcs. The first featuring the death of the Doctor is pointless as we know Smith is staying for series seven which makes watching this story for weeks less than rewarding. The other story arc featuring River Song is quite frankly boring now due to overexposure and has gotten to the point where you wish she would just disappear! In addition to this the worst episodes of the series, or at least in my opinion, are the ones that feature the story arcs and the ones that are written by Steven Moffat who in the past has given us such gems as: The Empty Child, Blink and The Girl In The Fireplace. Sadly he doesnt give us anything near as good here! Now I am all for story arcs in a show as it makes the whole thing more compelling to watch but the arcs we are given this series are either pointless or become boring. In my honest opinion Matt Smith deserves much better scripts than some of the ones he has been getting. Heres hoping series seven gets things back on track, moves away from Moffats constant use of timey-whimey stuff and gives us a decent story arc ala series five. 3.5 Stars.
