The Vampires of Venice. Getting your teeth into it.

Doctor Who rarely makes me laugh out loud, but when we saw Guido piloting the gondola wearing Rory's stag-do shirt I genuinely did. Here's what you thought............

Flesh and Stone. The final word.

This week it belongs to Steve Murphy.

Thought we'd cracked it for a bit there. The Time Of Angels had a lot going for it; tense, taut, edgy, well-paced. Full of lots of the stuff that Doctor Who has always been good at. Still faults, but for a change in this series, for me at least, actually outweighed by the positives.

And then the second part.

Flesh and Stone. Your thoughts.

Flesh and Stone seems to have gone down very well!

Mark Carroll: At last! A story that met my expectations. Creepy, funny, tense all the things a really good Steven Moffatt story should be. Here's hoping the standard remains as high for the rest of the series.

The Time of Angels. A final word

The final word this week comes from Mike Basil, and looks at the Weeping Angels.

The Time of Angels. You're singing a Happy Song!

A unanimous thumbs up so far, and I certainly have to agree. A wonderful episode, I just hope that "Flesh & Stone" manages to live up to "The Time of Angels".

Victory of the Daleks. The final word.

For the second week running it falls upon the shoulders of Gary Merchant to sign off for the blog on Victory of the Daleks. But just before that, am I allowed to say that I was disappointed by the episode? No?

Oh well, too late I guess. Right Gary.........

CT - Your Magazine!

It's always good to receive your feedback & I've been delighted at how well many of the features that appear in CT are going down so well. We're aiming to build on this over the coming months, and hope you continue to enjoy them!

Victory of the Daleks. First impressions.

Here's the early feedback folks!

Mark Carroll: Hmm. A lively episode but the space going Spitfires were ridiculous to the extent of going beyond the suspension of disbelief required when watching Sci Fi. The Dalek redesign doesn't work for me and looks very much like a cynical merchandising exercise! New shape and loads of new colours - Character must be rubbing their hands with glee!

The Beast Below. The final word.

Just one more piece of feedback on episode, courtesy of CT regular Gary Merchant.

"The Beast Below showed us early on how the dynamic between the Doctor and Amy is developing, and how Matt Smith's Doctor is shaping up. Gone is the post-impressionism of Tennant, and the figure now presented seems more contained in his emotions, but still has the cheeriness of his predecessor.

The Beast Below. Your thoughts.

After being deluged with feedback on The Eleventh Hour (sorry to those whose contributions I haven't managed to post), the response to episode 2 of Series 5 has been much more low key. However, here are a couple of very differing opinions!
