88% Doctor Who: Season 10 - Smile (TV Episode) It's a neat high-concept idea, marred only by the fact that the literal-minded-technology-running-out-of-control story has become a cliché of the modern Doctor Who series. ‐ Slant Magazine

92% Doctor Who: Season 10 - The Pilot (TV Episode) In place of the complex arc plotting and time-travel trickery characteristic of much of his previous work, Moffat presents a deliberately new viewer-friendly story that, as with "Rose," follows the point of view of a fresh companion.‐ Slant Magazine

81% Doctor Who: Season 9 - Face the Raven (TV Episode) Coleman's tenure as companion effectively ends here, after a performance that ranks highly among the many great performances she's given over the last three years.‐ Slant Magazine

67% Doctor Who: Season 9 - Sleep No More (TV Episode) As a technical exercise and an expansion of Doctor Who's boundaries, "Sleep No More" is moderately engaging, but as a satisfying adventure in its own right it can only be described as a snoozer.‐ Slant Magazine

94% Doctor Who: Season 9 - The Zygon Invasion (TV Episode) Writer Peter Harness greatly improves on last season's "Kill the Moon" by writing a script with all of that story's strengths, including excellent suspense building and strong characterizations, and none of its weaknesses.‐ Slant Magazine

83% Doctor Who: Season 9 - The Woman Who Lived (TV Episode) "The Woman Who Lived" is actually a sequel to "The Girl Who Died" rather than a simple continuation.‐ Slant Magazine

94% Doctor Who: Season 9 - The Girl Who Died (TV Episode) New director Ed Bazalgette proves adept at both keeping the light-hearted antics bubbling along, and provides space for Capaldi and Coleman to nail the serious moments.‐ Slant Magazine

93% Doctor Who: Season 9 (TV, 2015) "The Magician's Apprentice" begins the second season for Peter Capaldi's Doctor with a swaggering production whose confidence is quite remarkable... The opening hook is one of the most impressive the series has ever produced.‐ Slant Magazine

No Score Yet Doctor Who: The Snowmen (Christmas Special) (TV, 2012) It's the connections to the past and the inescapable set-up for the future that are the real meat of the episode.‐ Slant Magazine
