PICK TWO

19th. Kill the Moon (6 votes | 19.35%)



Kill the Moon is one of my favourite episodes listed and possibly my favourite of Series 8 so I'm sad to see it out to soon. I expected it though considering how it threw the scientific rules out the window. The main criticism comes from the fact that the story makes the moon an egg, containing a living creature which hatches and immediately lays an egg exactly the same size in its place because, you know, we need the moon. It's all very daft but I personally believe it is executed perfectly. It's brilliantly dark on many levels, there's the literal aspect, the scary monsters and the Doctor's act of leaving Earth's fate in Clara, Courtney and Lundvik's hands. The sets and locations are amazing and it offers a greatly realistic look at being on the moon. Whereas Angie and Artie were awful, Courtney is written and played excellently that she becomes a necessary part of the plot and helps enhance it. It's what I want from a Doctor Who story.


20th. The Woman Who Lived (8 votes | 25.81%)



The Woman Who Lived was a story that really didn't work for me as, whilst it was exploring a different aspect, it tried to force this into a Doctor Who format and the two didn't work well together. The episode explored the effect of the Doctor giving Ashildr (now called Me) immortality in the previous episode, which had taken place hundreds of years in the past. It mixed this up with an alien artifact that an alien lion wanted to use to get home or destroy the Earth or something I didn't care for. I thought the confrontations between Me and the Doctor contained excellent writing but didn't work in a show like Doctor Who and, they especially weren't as effective coming straight after the episode Ashildr had been in because the two became completely different characters that all care was lost as it felt quite forced.


21st. Sleep No More (4 votes | 13.79%)
22nd. In the Forest of the Night (9 votes | 31.03%)

Two L's again.

I like those two episodes. Kill The Moon I liked because of the idea that the Doctor refuses to take part in the decision of what to do with the moon, and the main plot I liked also, even though the idea of the moon being an egg is rather odd laugh.gif

It's mostly the plot and Me that I like about the Woman Who Lived. Apart from that I don't think there's much else to it but still quite a good episode imo.
