5/5 100% Doctor Who: Season 10 - World Enough and Time (TV Episode) An emotional, dark and daring story that continues to build and build to one hell of an ending. Capaldi and Pearl Mackie turn in some excellent performances while Rachel Talalay directs the episode perfectly, balancing humour with proper scares. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

3/5 76% Doctor Who: Season 11 - The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos (TV Episode) The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos gets three stars from me, mainly because I wasn't expecting any big finale or Daleks to crawl out of the wood work. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

4/5 90% Doctor Who: Season 11 - Kerblam! (TV Episode) Kerblam! delivers some familiar tropes of Doctor Who, but it packs enough twists right up until the last few minutes that a Broadchurch showrunner would be very happy. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

4/5 93% Doctor Who: Season 11 - Demons of the Punjab (TV Episode) Father's Day and Demons of the Punjab were excellent vehicles to get into the heart of the companion. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

3/5 83% Doctor Who: Season 11 - The Tsuranga Conundrum (TV Episode) It's the first episode that actually suffers for having this many companions, as most of the story is explored and resolved by the guest cast... Those grumbles aside, not a (space) disaster. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

5/5 86% Doctor Who: Season 11 - Arachnids in the UK (TV Episode) This episode fires on all cylinders: a horror movie for Halloween, snappy one liners, a simple but excellent monster of the week and some amazing guest characters. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

4/5 92% Doctor Who: Season 11 - The Ghost Monument (TV Episode) All in all, it's another strong outing for the show, but an episode a little different than Doctor Who is used to. Whittaker continues to show she's more than a match for the iconic role, and the new line-up of companions are working out nicely. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

4/5 87% Doctor Who: Twice Upon a Time (2017 Christmas Special) (TV, 2006) It's a quaint departure from the usual villain of the week. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

4/5 82% Star Trek: Discovery: Season 1 (TV, 2017) It's a smart move by CBS to revisit the franchise after a well needed break, and possibly an even smarter move by Netflix to snap up the rights for the non-US audience. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

4/5 100% Star Trek: Discovery: Season 1 - The Vulcan Hello (TV Episode) But Discovery isn't really competing with Trek's former TV incarnations, this is taking on big screen production values and giving them a run for their money. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

5/5 100% Doctor Who: Season 10 - The Doctor Falls (TV Episode) Capaldi simply shines this week. His Doctor has never had a better episode, filled with emotion and defiance. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

4/5 87% Doctor Who: Season 10 - The Pyramid at the End of the World (TV Episode) Even if you jumped right over episode 6, you can come right into this week's story and get all the build up to the cliffhanger that you need. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

3/5 93% Doctor Who: Season 10 - Extremis (TV Episode) The problem with Extremis isn't in the watching of the episode though. The problem with Extremis is afterwards, when you stop and think about the episode. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

4/5 100% Doctor Who: Season 10 - Oxygen (TV Episode) Oh, Oxygen is good. Not perfect, but it's a treat of an episode that nails the funny/quirky/scary Venn Diagram of what Doctor Who is. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

3/5 88% Doctor Who: Season 10 - Knock Knock (TV Episode) Knock Knock wins on quite a few levels - direction, effects, atmosphere and the expected brilliance of Capaldi and Mackie. But it's a weak storyline that just isn't given space to breathe. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

4/5 94% Doctor Who: Season 10 - Thin Ice (TV Episode) Overall, Thin Ice is a satisfying episode that isn't afraid to get serious at times. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

3/5 84% Doctor Who: Season 10 - Smile (TV Episode) Overall, it's an okay episode but it's unlikely to go down as a stand out story you'll want to watch over and over. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT
