We’re just 11 days away from the next Doctor Who Christmas Special, which we think will last 60 minutes - although given the penchant for the most recent season of Doctor Who to over-run the alleged 45 minute episode length (I think only one episode of the season clocks in at the 45 minute mark, now that I’ve got my 2014 season blu-ray set to check - the rest run over, not that I’m complaining), who knows how long this special will actually be. Will it be the last story for Jenna Coleman on board the TARDIS? Or will she last even longer as the companion? We’ll find out soon enough when Last Christmas is shown on December 25th, with a 9pm broadcast time on Space and BBC America.

Well, I wasn’t expecting that. What is “that”? Pretty much any part of Death in Heaven, the finale of the 2014 season of Doctor Who. But never mind me. What did you think of the episode? The season as a whole? The characters that played a major part in this season? As always, let us know what you think in the comments section below.

Better late than never, if you missed Saturday’s episode of Doctor Who you should give reading the comments on this blog a miss. If you missed the clues as to who Missy is, you might not be alone. You might think this episode was fantastic, or you may have a bone to pick with it. Take a Deep Breath, take a plunge and give us your thoughts on the first part of the season finale, Dark Water in the comments section below.

This is not the Battle of Epping Forest. right outside the TARDIS door (apologies to Genesis), but nevertheless, it is still an adventure that takes place in a forest in London. Or perhaps its a Forest which takes its place in London. Either way, let us know what you thought of the tenth episode of the 2014 season of Doctor Who, In the Forest of the Night. Did the episode show Doctor Who branching out in a great new direction, or did it bark up the wrong tree?

What did you think of tonight’s episode of Doctor Who? Do you think that the aliens could hear what the Doctor named them when half of the audience couldn’t and even if they did, do you think they’ll accept what the Doctor called them? What do you think the Doctor called them? Do you think it would have been cool if the two-dimensional creatures had been defeated after a teacher from Coal Hill School gave them the old five-dimensional problem to solve (using the 2D blackboard that Ian Chesterton once used in An Unearthly Child)? Tell us flatly what your answers are to these questions, or even better, ignore my silliness and just tell us what you thought of the episode. Remember, goodness doesn’t necessarily have to have anything to do with it.

Tell us what you think. Don’t worry though - even though you can see the Mummy, you have more than 66 seconds to tell us what you thought about the episode. You have been foretold.

Was Kill the Moon a killer of an episode, or did it lay a giant egg? You have more than 45 minutes to decide, although if you take longer than that to type up your post, then you are either a really slow typist or are really writing one heck of a post!
Either way, we would love to hear your thoughts on this episode, your theories on what made it such a bad day for Danny Pink and whether that was of any significance for later episodes at all or simply he had an annoying day marking exams and fighting through rush hour traffic (or something mundane like that). Or you could give us your opinion on much more trivial matters, like whether the Doctor was right to act as he did or whether Clara was right to react to him as she did. Yes, the word “trivial” was me being silly - don’t kill me for it.

Care to give us your take on The Caretaker? Please enter your comments below on whether you too also would liked to have known how the Doctor and Clara escaped the planet of the sand pirahnas, whether you think the fish people that the Doctor and Clara visited were the same ones seen in The Underwater Menace and whether the character of Courtney was named after the guy who played the Brigadier. Or maybe you’d like to comment on what the episode was about (since none of the examples I’ve listed have much to do with the heart of this episode). Fire away as rapidly as the Skovox Blitzer!

What did you think of the fifth episode of the Peter Capaldi era, Time Hustle - er, sorry, Time Heist? The architects of this episode were Steven Thompson and Steven Moffat, while its major guest star was Spooks and Ashes to Ashes star Keeley Hawes (pictured above). Did you get all fired up while watching it or did your brain turn to soup? Better write your comments down now before you touch any worms.
