Overall Rating: 8.5/10 

I liked this series of Doctor Who and totally fell in love with Peter Capaldi’s Incarnation of the Time Lord. There were some weak stories such as Robot of Sherwood (funny but weak) and In The Forest of the Night; but more stronger ones such as Mummy on the Orient Express and Death In Heaven.

Clara was very interesting in this series and loved her pretending to be the Doctor on two occasions but I want to know what’s going on whether she is pregnant or not (How did her Great-Grandson Orson Pink come about?). Hope to find out this Christmas and tie in why both of them lied to each other (at the end of episode 12). I liked Danny Pink but even more when he saved the Earth from a Cybermen Invasion (our hero and farewell).

The child actors were more tolerable this series compared to the last one and liked the homage to Classic Who and past references to previous regenerations (jelly baby anyone?).

Killing off Osgood was heart breaking (MOFFAT!!! *Shakes Fist*) but loved that Missy was the Master. Nothing wrong with a female regeneration and she was totally mad and evil. Still love UNIT and if I was in the Doctor Who Universe would love to have worked with them.

In regards to cosplaying as the Doctor I normally dress up as both the 10th and 11th. I.e. Bow Tie, Shirt, Slim black trousers, Converse trainers and 10th Doctor Sonic Screwdriver. I’m tempted to dress up more as the Twelfth Doctor seeing he has a variety of outfits. Just need to choose the right one really.

Here is the Christmas Special Trailer featuring Nick Frost as Santa Claus:

 

I cannot wait to do a review of the Christmas Special but also will have doing so.

Hope you all enjoyed this review blog and feel free to like and comment below.

See you all soon!
