    Definitely. When I read time heist I went through the whole script not really knowing what was going on and then right at the end when it all clicked into place it was just "that is so good".

    I felt that both Listen and Time heist have a feel of hide about them (one of the good episodes of season 7). The whole fear side of hide definitely comes through on listen and the ending of time heist made me think of the ending of hide.


    The first two episodes also look like they will be good. Into the Dalek looks like it could be amazing but I am interested to see the execution of that one to see if it actually is as good on tv as the script is.
    I did the same! I read the script for time heist very briefly, but not right to the end because spoilers

    read most of listen, and the one scene I was literally waiting for is in it! Couldn't believe it really, it's just such a good episode


    I really hope they don't overdo into the dalek- done just right and it could be a fantastic episode. One of the most original scripts by far!

    I am just really hoping that the rest of the series lives up to the first 5 (excluding episode 3 :P ) episode Would end up being easily one of the best series post 2005.

    Absolutely! Last series was pretty bad, and from what I've read, Capaldi's doctor sounds like a

    Looks like it is going to be Moffat's best series so far - especially with episode 4 (Listen). But, that won't stop people trying to criticise him.

    On a side note, which episodes do people like from the Tennant/Eccleston era? Turn Left is one of my all time favs.

    For some reason, and still to this day I don't know why, but I wasn't a big fan of the 9th Doctor. For me, he made me cringe at time by the way he acted. Still a good Doctor, though. My favorite episode of series 1 was "The Empty Child" & "The Doctor Dances".

    Most people say The Doctor you first grow up with will probably be 'your' Doctor, which is correct with me. because Tennant is 'my' Doctor. I probably would say my favorite episode was "The Water of Mars" and "Human Nature".

    If I had to pick my favorite episode of Doctor Who so far, that would be "Vincent and the Doctor". I didn't care about the monster, but the story of Van Gogh was fabulous. I never knew what he went through until I watched this episode. It made me look at him in a completely different way than I did in the past. Really want more episodes like that.

    I started watching doctor who really late- jan 13, I think "my" doctor has to be tennant, but 11 had some pretty good episodes too. Impossible astronaut/day of the moon, time of angels, and Vincent and the doctor are up there!

    Turn Left/Blink were both good, as has been mentioned. Personally was a huge fan of Midnight too.

    I know that feeling. Midnight, Blink, The Empty Child two parter, Waters of Mars and Silence in the Library two parter get me every time. Have to have someone with me to watch them.

    Omg yes! All of these are scary.

    Out of all of them, Midnight and Waters of Mars are ones I can barely watch. I don't find the others too bad now

    With the double parters I'm better if I see both parts at once...if not the waiting kills me. I think the worst thing about Midnight and Waters of Mars is the Doctor now knowing that the things are and how to stop them. Urgh just imagining the faces of the monsters on Mars is making me scared to sleep now.
