    Anyway, Doctor who is always at its best when its in its weekly episodic self-contained story mode, and deals with interesting themes and ideas but doesn't try to be too epic.

    The Girl in the Fireplace and the Waters of Mars episodes, for instance, are fantastic. You don't need to have ever watched the show before to enjoy them either.

    On the other hand, the big end of season finales that tend to involve "the end of the Universe" or some other apocalyptic trope are just terrible. The writers lose control of the script, resulting in major bullshit and deus ex machinas.

    Ah! That's what happened. I just thought it wasn't very good.

    You would think differently if it was called Doctor Thompson instead.

    Ah man, the bit at the end where Rose asks the Doctor if he's alright, and he looks up and says "I'm always alright" is just great.

    Such a subtle and understated moment, but yet powerful.
