What did you think of tonight’s episode of Doctor Who? Do you think that the aliens could hear what the Doctor named them when half of the audience couldn’t and even if they did, do you think they’ll accept what the Doctor called them? What do you think the Doctor called them? Do you think it would have been cool if the two-dimensional creatures had been defeated after a teacher from Coal Hill School gave them the old five-dimensional problem to solve (using the 2D blackboard that Ian Chesterton once used in An Unearthly Child)? Tell us flatly what your answers are to these questions, or even better, ignore my silliness and just tell us what you thought of the episode. Remember, goodness doesn’t necessarily have to have anything to do with it.

Tell us what you think. Don’t worry though - even though you can see the Mummy, you have more than 66 seconds to tell us what you thought about the episode. You have been foretold.

Was Kill the Moon a killer of an episode, or did it lay a giant egg? You have more than 45 minutes to decide, although if you take longer than that to type up your post, then you are either a really slow typist or are really writing one heck of a post!
Either way, we would love to hear your thoughts on this episode, your theories on what made it such a bad day for Danny Pink and whether that was of any significance for later episodes at all or simply he had an annoying day marking exams and fighting through rush hour traffic (or something mundane like that). Or you could give us your opinion on much more trivial matters, like whether the Doctor was right to act as he did or whether Clara was right to react to him as she did. Yes, the word “trivial” was me being silly - don’t kill me for it.

Care to give us your take on The Caretaker? Please enter your comments below on whether you too also would liked to have known how the Doctor and Clara escaped the planet of the sand pirahnas, whether you think the fish people that the Doctor and Clara visited were the same ones seen in The Underwater Menace and whether the character of Courtney was named after the guy who played the Brigadier. Or maybe you’d like to comment on what the episode was about (since none of the examples I’ve listed have much to do with the heart of this episode). Fire away as rapidly as the Skovox Blitzer!

What did you think of the fifth episode of the Peter Capaldi era, Time Hustle - er, sorry, Time Heist? The architects of this episode were Steven Thompson and Steven Moffat, while its major guest star was Spooks and Ashes to Ashes star Keeley Hawes (pictured above). Did you get all fired up while watching it or did your brain turn to soup? Better write your comments down now before you touch any worms.

Tell us what you thought of the fourth episode of the current season of Doctor Who! Some are calling this episode the Peter Capaldi-era equivalent to Blink, some are calling it the best Moffat-written episode since he became the showrunner - do you agree? Remember to speak out your post as you type it, even if you think you are alone…..

Peter Capaldi’s third outing as the Doctor, the delightfully-titled Robot of Sherwood, has now aired. And it is “Robot” by the way, not “Robots” as I’ve now heard way too many fans call it already. Was this episode true with its aim or off-target? Did it not feature enough beheadings? Give us a spoonful of your thoughts in the comment section below!

What did you think of the 2nd episode of the season and the second 12th Doctor story? It’s the episode that aired August 30th, if you would like to have a few words (as the 12th Doctor might say) about what you thought, please enter them in the comments section. Is this season Heaven so far, or just leading to it? Whether you were tickled Pink by the episode, or are disappointed with the era so far, we would like to hear from you.

The 12th Doctor era has officially begun! Tell us what you thought of Peter Capaldi’s debut adventure in the comments section below. What did you think of Peter’s performance? What did you think of his Doctor? What did you think of the new opening titles and the umpteempth arrangement of the theme music by Murray Gold? What about the story itself, by Steven Moffat? Did Jenna Coleman surprisingly steal the show with her performance? What about the change of pace and tone of the episode? The returning guest appearances (both the surprising and the un-surprising ones)? The possibilities for comment are endless! Take a deep breath and let us know!

By my count, it is the 36th season of Doctor Who which starts tomorrow. Yes, I am counting the run of Tennant specials as a season, and I am counting the 2012 and 2013 seasons (also known as Series 7) as separate seasons. Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman point the way to a new run of adventures - either that or they are trying to spot where the legendary Morton Dill may have set foot in The Chase. On this occasion, time will not ever tell. Peter and Jenna are no longer in New York - as Morton Dill himself once said, they just left.
Get ready to give us your opinions on the new season of Doctor Who, whatever number you call it, as we will have special blog posts for each new episode after they air.
