  1.  Some strengths ... But weaker than ever


    This is a mostly negative review so I'd like to start with the positives. Firstly Matt Smith, a brilliant doctor. The BBC were smart in signing him on a replacement for tennant because he is so convincing as the doctor, such an interesting charachter. Not as good as Tennant but that was never an expectation as he was one of a kind. Also the story arc, the death of the doctor. Brilliant creative writing from Moffat.

    Now on to the negative. The show seams to have lost its ambition. It was once about visiting new worlds and strange creatures, the possibilities were infinite. But now what do we get? Sword fighting with pirates (so coincidentally at the time On Stranger Tides was released). a planet in quarantine that seams to be nothing but a white room and a monastery supposed to be a factory. So far the silence and madame kovarian have been the only interesting foes, however the first two parter was far too complicated for Who and Madame Kovarian has been given no reason for her war against the doctor.

    The show is also too focused on Amy rather than the doctor, every episode seems to be more about her than the story. She was a good charachter in series 5 but now she is just irritating.
