Showrunner Steven Moffat and Peter Capaldi have stepped up their game for their last trip in the Tardis.

I like Capaldi in the role, his dark Scottish humor; I like that he's an older Doctor, in the early tradition of the show.

Apr 14, 2017 | Full Review…

Pearl Mackie's Bill occasionally falls victim to Moffat's tendency to hammer a point home, but she's probably the most human companion since Donna Noble (or perhaps Rory).

Apr 16, 2017 | Full Review…

The most cherishable thing about the girl called Bill is that she pricks the Doctor's self-regard, which is about goddamned time.

Apr 17, 2017 | Full Review…

Mackie is an energetic and enjoyable addition to the show, and her down-to-Earth character brings a healthy skepticism to all things Doctor-related.

Capaldi, we now know, will go out all arms blazing and protesting his head off.

Dec 28, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

For many, TV drama will never be the same.

Apr 17, 2017 | Full Review…

Taken in full, "The Pilot" was less than the sum of its parts.

Jul 9, 2019 | Full Review…

With Mackie's Bill and Lucas' lovable cyborg Nardole on board, Capaldi's final season in the TARDIS has the chance to start fresh ... that's the true beauty of Doctor Who. And we can't wait to see where the show takes us next.

Apr 17, 2017 | Full Review…

All in all, The Pilot is a good episode, and a very encouraging start to the new series as a simple companion-introductory episode.

Dec 19, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The point, we think, isn't that the show is too dark; it's that it's too repetitive in its modern form.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

We have seen very good female characters in the series and it may be the cornerstone that 'Doctor Who' needs to grow even more in years to come. [Full review in Spanish]

    Es mala, esta serie va cada vez peor. Cuando disfrutas mas con capítulos supercutres de los años 60-70 es que se están haciendo las cosas fatal.

    Dark, brooding, tense yet hopeful. Despite some very minor set backs, it was possibly one of the best seasons by this crew.

    Very good series with some amazing episodes...just not amazing (but not bad either!)
  • Jan 09, 2020
    The best season yet of Peter Capaldi. I loved how complex the story was and innovative the story is.
  • Jan 07, 2020
    Bill is by far the best companion since Donna, and i actually liked Amy and Rory!
  • Jan 02, 2020
    I really liked this season. It was probably my least favorite season of doctor who before the disaster that is season 11.
  • Nov 22, 2019
    I didn't like the pandering but there are some good episodes.
  • Nov 13, 2019
    There was a lot to like about this season, but some slow stretches too, like 'Knock Knock' which seemed to go on and on. Bill deserved another season. The chemistry between the 12th Doctor and Bill made this season so enjoyable. Great to have Missy back and even a little bit of River through her diary. The Master was also an extra treat.
  • Sep 03, 2019
    This series I really enjoy the story's were consistently great and Peter capaldi's Doctor felt more complete the only problem was Bill became more annoying as the series went on about being a lesbian bringing it up in every situation and her disrespect to the first doctor was unforgivable, but overall a great series.

    Capaldi is a great Doctor. Too bad is stuck with the worst Companion in the shows History. Bill Potts is an over the top PC character that no one likes. Add terrible writing and this was a waste of a Season
