T-Meter Title | Year
71% Doctor Who: Season 12 - The Timeless Children (TV Episode) Having spent weeks wondering if Chris Chibnall's desire to reinvent Doctor Who would cause him to go too far, it's hard not to feel that he ended up not going far enough. - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 93% Doctor Who: Season 12 - Ascension of the Cybermen (TV Episode) There's an awful lot of plot crammed into this installment, which is both a good thing and a bad thing. - Den of Geek EDIT

94% Doctor Who: Season 12 - The Haunting of Villa Diodati (TV Episode) Thanks to some snappy dialogue delivered by a solid guest cast, a good villain and a highly atmospheric soundtrack from composer Segun Akinola, however, "The Haunting of Villa Diodati" comes together as more than the sum of its ill-fitting parts. - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 67% Doctor Who: Season 12 - Can You Hear Me? (TV Episode) Grumbles aside, there's plenty of style and a good old panto villain to enjoy this week - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 71% Doctor Who: Season 12 - Praxeus (TV Episode) Unfortunately, a few of the show's recent bad habits have also left their mark on this week's script. - Den of Geek EDIT

3.5/5 100% Doctor Who: Season 12 - Fugitive of the Judoon (TV Episode) This is not a timeless episode, not by any means. I won't be hurrying to re-watch it. But in that first, crucial viewing, I was absolutely hooked. Lie to me more, please. - Den of Geek EDIT

89% Doctor Who: Season 12 - Nikola Tesla's Night of Terror (TV Episode) Although it's not as impactful as Rosa, this is another historical outing for the Thirteenth Doctor that shows us that the show can introduce us to some truly remarkable humans, even if it doesn't always know what to do with its aliens. - Den of Geek EDIT

47% Doctor Who: Season 12 - Orphan 55 (TV Episode) That's "Orphan 55" in a nutshell: a workmanlike episode that's big on action but struggles to make us really care about the people who are in danger. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 82% Doctor Who: Season 12 - Spyfall, Part 2 (TV Episode) If "Spyfall" as a whole is any indication, this series of Doctor Who will make the show's year-long absence worth the wait. - Den of Geek EDIT

93% Doctor Who: Season 12 - Spyfall, Part 1 (TV Episode) A few of the familiar problems do crop up, most notably a companion with nothing to do, but there are also plenty of moments to praise. - Den of Geek EDIT

95% Doctor Who: Resolution (2019 New Year's Special) (TV, 2006) Story-wise, this was a pretty solid three-act structure told with a rigorousness that's sometimes been missing this past year. - Den of Geek EDIT

73% Doctor Who: Season 11 - The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos (TV Episode) Beneath the fuss, though, this was a solid conclusion to a deliberate, methodical reinvention that stayed true to the values it's established this year as well as a few of the themes that have bubbled for far, far longer than that. - Den of Geek EDIT

93% Doctor Who: Season 11 - It Takes You Away (TV Episode) The first two thirds of "It Takes You Away" does exactly what it advertises, bundling you onto a roller-coaster of strange places and stranger things. - Den of Geek EDIT

86% Doctor Who: Season 11 - The Witchfinders (TV Episode) If only the aliens had been given the same nuance, care and screen time that the human villains have enjoyed so far, this could have been a classic episode. - Den of Geek EDIT

87% Doctor Who: Season 11 - Kerblam! (TV Episode) From the minute the Doctor dons a Fez apparently purchased two regenerations ago and asks "Is this still me?" you get the sense that this episode is going to be a little more accepting of all that has gone before. - Den of Geek EDIT

93% Doctor Who: Season 11 - Demons of the Punjab (TV Episode) There's a cohesion to this week's adventure that helps carry events forward without as much of the confusion and floundering that the Doctor and her companions have been subjected to thus far. - Den of Geek EDIT

79% Doctor Who: Season 11 - The Tsuranga Conundrum (TV Episode) With a scant ten entries this year, five of which are now said and done, filler episodes might not be good enough to convince skeptics that the show is able to mesh its rediscovered human factor with the grander narrative themes of yesteryear. - Den of Geek EDIT

87% Doctor Who: Season 11 - Arachnids in the UK (TV Episode) Doctor Who is working. There can be no doubt that this more measured approach, and its refusal to rely on universe-shattering peril every week, is enticing an absent audience back to the screen. - Den of Geek EDIT
