I will reserve judgement until I see it... I don't trust fanboy reviews.

Digital Spy isn't a fansite; though you're right about holding off judgement.

Something in the tone of the review depresses me though, it all sounds very RTD.

Some of hte bits in the review seemed very nitpicky... That's why I thought it read a bit fanboy...

I haven't seen 'Midnight' yet, but I watched 'Forest of Trees' last night. What a bloody great episode. I loved the fact that all the small details of the previous episode actually came back to be meaningful at the end - the 'echo' in the digital recorder saving River, characters you thought had been killed off ended up being important to the ending, and some wonderful performances by Alex Kingston, David Tennant and Catherine Tate. If only all DW episodes were that beautifully plotted...but then again I think you wouldn't truly appreciate the great ones if there weren't some weaker episodes as well.

An interesting point, are the Moffat stories really that good, or are they made to look better than they are by the sub-standard quality of the episodes around them?

Personally, I'd have to say that The Girl in the Fireplace and Blink are two of the best episodes of any program I have seen, The Empty Child/Doctor Dances less so, but they are still very good. I'm not really sure about Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead at the moment, I really need to watch them through in one hit, but I must say I wasn't as taken with them initially as I was with Moffat's other offerings - perhaps it is because they are much more complex than his other episodes and I still need to get my head around them!

RT have done covers with companions at the forefront before. She's a very popular returning character, and the Doctor gets plenty of coverage, I can't see the problem myself.

I'm all about the design psychologicals, though. Most people wouldn't probably notice, or indeed care if they did. It just bugs me because the design layout is wrong.

It should be either Rose on her own, the three companions with Rose at the front or Rose side by side with The Doctor. It's just a bad layout for a finale promo.

Comments - of a non-spoilery kind - from SFX's Ian Berriman on episode 12 (next week's episode!):

QUOTE
"Episode 12 is ABSOLUTELY BLEEDIN' MENTAL and SUPER-DOOPER-FANWANKY. They'll have to power-hose the squee off the walls of the Outpost Gallifrey forums a week on Saturday.

"It feels a bit like a nostalgic Russell flicked through Doctor Who: The Encyclopedia and went 'Oooh, yeah, that was good - I'll have some of that. And them. And her. And bring in that wotsit from that throwaway line in episode X.' Whilst throwing his head back, hooting with laughter, and booming 'MARVELLOUS!' It's like watching the entire new series so far compressed into a blipvert.

"Ming-mong-kryptonite, then, and there's a danger that the sheer density of it will give casual viewers concussion, but I spent 45 minutes whooping and bellowing with laughter at the sheer don't-give-a-toss audacity of it, and am about to watch it all over again IMMEDIATELY. I bloody loved it, even though there's a slim chance I'll think it's a big pile of tits once I've calmed down sufficiently to be dryly rational - in, say, about three years' time."


Quoted from here: Sneak preview of Doctor Who season finale.

Granted, this is from the man who gave the first four episodes of Torchwood season one 4/5 in a review, but at the same it's hard not to be swayed by his enthusiasm.

No, don't mind me. I'm just slightly arsey with things like that.

'Midnight' was great - much more of a thriller than a classic Who episode, but it was nice to have a 'small' concept episode like this one after the huge, sprawling epic of the two-parter last week. I liked all the performances and the study of how quickly people can change when they feel trapped or threatened. Tennant had me all emotional when he was being controlled by Mrs Sylvestri - you could see a hugely physical struggle going on, yet he never moved.
