Amy's Choice. Your views.

Well, we're now more than half way through Series 5. Here's what you're saying........

Amy's Choice

Well, I really liked this one. I think it is because it was just that bit different. I enjoyed Vampires of Venice too, but in a different way. It was after all, quite formulaic and very similar to other episodes from the new series - such as The Shakespeare Code, or The Unquiet Dead.

The Vampires of Venice. The final word.

CT regular Gary Merchant winds up for us this week.

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............

This week it belongs to Steve Murphy.

I was very pleased to see that the 1990s children's series 'Century Falls' and 'Dark Season' have been released on DVD by the BBC. Both of course are from the pen of RTD and are, in my humble view, some of the finest children's TV of their era.

The Time of Angels. A final word

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

It's a long story... and I don't know most of it!

I really enjoyed "The Time of Angels". I enjoyed its humour, its tension, its atmosphere... its everything.

You wont be surprised then that when I voted in our poll I chose the "Instant classic" option.

After voting I did the usual Saturday evening round of phone calls. Everyone that I spoke to liked the episode. However, many of them said something along the following lines:
