I only watched up to the end of Season 3 of Game of Thrones, but I heard the series is starting to divert away from the books which is a disappointment.
I wasn't so keen on Steven Moffat's writing because it made the stories too complex (bearing in mind this is a family TV show) and I loved Christopher Eccleston's Doctor! As for that episode, it was very creepy, but I loved Captain Jack! The scariest episode has
to be Blink though.
Yeah, while all the major events are mostly the same in GoT to the best of my knowledge, there's a few things I've heard that are a little different. I guess it keeps it interesting, but all the same, I can understand the frustration!
And yup! I completely agree!
Moffat is pretty good at writing standalone stories every once in a while (he wrote 'Blink', 'The Empty Hearse' and also co-wrote the Sherlock series with Mark Gatiss), but ever since he's taken over as show-runner, things have gotten a little too convoluted. Sometimes the episode resolution basically rolls down to "Oh hey, let's just use my magical sonic screwdriver!" in the last two minutes. Also, I'm not too keen on those moments the lady in a space suit showed up (I forgot her name XD). :P I also kinda' miss Russel T Davies, with his two-part episodes and whatnot which allowed stories to be a bit longer than 45 minutes.
When I first watched the Blink episode, I fell out of my chair, and I really wasn't expecting it at all. I think I was scared of watching all the other Doctor Who episodes afterwards for a little while.. Haha. It didn't really help that my visiting grandma came over that day and was sitting there chuckling at the entire episode! Nothing scares old people it seems.
