Critic Reviews for Doctor Who Season 9

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (2)

This is big-ticket Doctor Who, done in such a beautifully delicate way that it manages both to startle and to endear.

Rarely has a show been so dependent on the skills of a single actor - and Capaldi is a good one: able to bring just enough emotional depth to a comicbook caper to render it dramatic.

The Doctor has certainly chilled out quite a bit from his harder-edged persona from last year.

Sep 21, 2015 | Rating: 9.4/10 | Full Review…

Full of wit and menace, unafraid to take on the show's museum piece classics, The Magician's Apprentice proves to be a supremely confident series premiere, launching the Twelfth Doctor's second innings in style.

Sep 21, 2015 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Seemingly keen to re-energize itself after a topsy-turvy year in 2014, Doctor Who's ninth season has upped the stakes dramatically while still maintaining much of its grounded, loveable charm.

Nov 9, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

So beautifully well written, with a few familiar settings and a new one we haven't seen (Skaro of course).

Aug 28, 2018 | Full Review…

A 4.5 billion-year stay in hell, invasions, ghosts, a quick trip home, and death - lots of death: it's been a rough season for the Doctor, but in the end, it has made him all the better.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

To make matters worse, the episode falls foul of the two most common stumbling blocks for Doctor Who writers: maintaining the balance between the Doctor and his companion, and making sure the stakes feel believably high.

Jan 18, 2017 | Full Review…

The character this season appears less grumpy, imbued with a kind of joyful mania.

Seemingly keen to re-energize itself after a topsy-turvy year in 2014, Doctor Who Season Nine has upped the stakes dramatically while still maintaining much of its grounded, loveable charm.
