With one great episode under its belt, Doctor Who Series 7 is off to an excellent start indeed.

For a Doctor Who finale that accomplishes quite a lot in a rather brief amount of time, "The Name of the Doctor" is an incredibly smooth ride.

Doctor Who is proof that inventive writing and inspired acting can not only help Geek TV transcend production values but also render them irrelevant.

The action staggered back and forth between the streets of 21st- and 13th-century Carcassonne like a dehydrated tour guide lost in one of those medieval fetes that the French have a passion for.
