In the second part of my retrospective on Steven Moffat's era of Doctor Who, I discuss the Moffats with the Mostest: my all-time favorite stories from Seasons Five through Ten.
In the first (and grumpier) of two retrospectives on Steven Moffat's Doctor Who, I run down my 20 least favorite stories from Seasons Five through Ten.
"Beyond the Wall" might just be the dumbest episode of Game of Thrones ever, but there's good stuff here if we look beyond the contrivances.
"Eastwatch" is something of a table-setting episode, but it also looks at how fathers live in their children, for better or worse.
The stunningly good "The Spoils of War" packs a lot of emotional subtext into a short and action-packed episode.
In "The Queen's Justice," ice and fire finally come together, and everyone needs to let go of the things they think they know.
With new allegiances being forged, "Stormborn" tests the strengths—and limitations—of different kinds of loyalty.
In "Dragonstone," the Season Seven premiere of Game of Thrones, survival may depend on reconciling the sins of the past with the needs of the future.
The tenth-season finale fails Pearl Mackie's Bill, but "The Doctor Falls" is a strong episode that sets Steven Moffat up to say his final word on Doctor Who.
In "World Enough and Time," all the themes that have obsessed Steven Moffat's era of Doctor Who come home to roost.
Classic Doctor Who writer Rona Munro returns with "The Eaters of Light," to show the current generation how to do a simple story well.
What could I possible say about Mark Gatiss's writing that I haven't said before? Not a thing, so I'm not even going to try...
In "The Lie of the Land," the multi-part story of the Monks comes to an end, with patently ridiculous plotting and sadly diminishing returns.
"The Pyramid at the End of the World" presents a familiar conflict: the Doctor vs. God. So this week I'm taking a long look at the treatment of religion in New Who.
Steven Moffat's "Extremis" inspired some thoughts on River Song, death, and the problem of endings in Doctor Who.
