News & Interviews for Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor
This episode belongs to Matt Smith, and it's entirely likely that this will go down as his finest work in the role.
These past two months amounted to what can reasonably claim to be Doctor Who's biggest year. This end of days even gave us a fleeting return of Amy Pond. Yes, the Time of The Doctor was awfully good.
While some aspects of the story may have been lost on the casual viewer, it was nevertheless an adventure the whole family could enjoy.
With this singular focus, you might expect this Christmas special to be a streamlined beast, a smooth ride, yet the nature of Steven Moffat's labyrinthine storytelling means that 'The Time of the Doctor' has a lot to accomplish.
If you didn't well up a bit, shame on you - you're worse than even the most emotionally stunted Kaled mutant.
After 44 episodes spread across four years, magnificent Matt Smith discards his bowtie and lets it drop, poignantly, to the floor of the Tardis.
Time of the Doctor was a melancholic yet ultimately merry end to one of the show's best Doctors to date.
The Time Of The Doctor was an instalment with an exciting start and a memorable ending.
The episode was a bit of a mess, but Matt Smith turned in a fine performance and a lot of loose ends got wrapped up, sort of, even if some of them didn't make much sense.
Audience Reviews for Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor
Jan 15, 2019The biggest pile of baloney and mundaneness I have ever seen in my life.
Dec 31, 2018A few good scenes in what is otherwise a total disaster of a story with a wafer thin plot.
Dec 22, 2018The perfect way to say goodbye to Matt Smith.
Jun 30, 2018Some of it i enjoyed but the more i'm watching clara the less i like her. she is really spoiling it for me.
Nov 29, 2017The Sonic Screwdriver and the TARDIS help the Doctor save the Earth on a weekly basis. The Doctor, a now two thousand year old Time Lord, battles aliens and human nature so that everybody lives. 13 regenerations into his life, the Doctor has saved billions a million times over. Doctor Who is an entrancing British SYFY show packed with action, humor, beautiful space scenes, and cross species relationships. The Doctor brings various companions into his space ship time machine and takes them across the stars. His companions are plucked from their dull, everyday lives and shown the wonders of the universe. When they come back home, they are a mere shell of who they were. The Doctor turns some into soldiers, like dear Martha Jones, some become trapped, never to return like Rose Tyler. And some must forget to save their lives, like Donna Noble. The older the Doctor becomes, the more he realizes that he manipulates the lives of those who love him most, so that he may continue in his reckless ways. He reasons with himself that he must live so that the galaxy may as well. The weight of the universe weighs on the shoulders of the last Time Lord.
Jul 25, 2017Matt Smith's emotional departure is perfectly portrayed with a clash of titans, the final conclusion of the "Silence will fall" storyline that has been building since Smith's first episode, and a smashing...ly emotional ending to the Era of the Eleventh Doctor.
Jun 12, 2017A good finally for Matt Smith. It was fun and emotional.
Jun 03, 2017Doctor Who is the best
May 01, 2017A bit of a mess in parts and almost rushed but a great send-off for Matt Smith.
Nov 09, 2015Horrible, over-bloated script. From the cringe-worthy "nudity" at the family dinner at the beginning, to the most boring battle sequences in the history of television, to the horrible answer to the question no one cared about -"Doctor Who?" This is the worst of the Moffat Era. Half a star for the superb last minute with Capaldi.
