Question of the week: what was your favourite Doctor Who story this series?

So – except for viewers in the US who have their own programmes – series 5/season 31/series 1/there’s no such thing as seasons* of Doctor Who has just finished. Time for a very obvious question of the week:

What was your favourite episode this series and why?

You can also, if you wish, suggest your least favourite and you can even say what you thought of the show this series, how it compared to the previous series, what you thought of Amy, the Doctor, Karen Gillan, Matt Smith, that spud Rory, the new-look Silurians or anything else that grabs you. It’s a basic Who-ey free-for-all.

If you need to remind yourself of the episodes, what I said and even what you said, here are links to the reviews on the blog:

  1. The Eleventh Hour
  2. The Beast Below
  3. Victory of the Daleks
  4. The Time of Angels
  5. Flesh and Stone
  6. The Vampires of Venice
  7. Amy’s Choice
  8. The Hungry Earth
  9. Cold Blood
  10. Vincent and the Doctor
  11. The Lodger
  12. The Pandorica Opens
  13. The Big Bang

PS Rest assured, readers of the blog who don’t really give a monkey’s about Doctor Who, it’s all going to be a bit less Who-ey round here for a while.

As always, leave a comment with your answer or a link to your answer on your own blog
