Fantastic audience retention
on 24 May 2013
These Dr Who series just get better and better!
Story-line: Absolutely engrossing, often surprising, and always leaving you eager for the next episode.
Pace and flow: Fast-paced action intermingled with emotional but slower scenes allow you to catch your breath, but not so much that you can go and put the kettle on.
Characters: I thought that whoever followed David Tennant as the Doctor would be a disappointment - wrong! I thought also that Rose would be irreplaceable - wrong again! Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill all play strong, wildly different characters that you know well enough to predict their reactions, but the script always delivers the suspense and the surprises.
Special effects: Excellent
Costumes: Perfectly believable aliens ;-)
Sets: Bigger and better than ever.
Living abroad, I get to see the series later than in the UK, so I'm careful not to read spoilers in the news media :-)
