Doctor Who S7 (2012-2013)

Doctor Who - Series 7B

Compared to the previous season, I found the most recent one a bit disappointing. On an episode level, it’s the same old same old. Old companions go, a new one is introduced, the Doc fights various enemies all over space and time and the stories cover the range from the preposterous to the ludicrous.

The hook from the end of the last episode, what Doc Who’s real name is and why it matters, isn’t satisfyingly explored and while the finale of the season has some interesting ideas and explained neatly the strange occurrence of his newest companion all over the time stream, I found the season as a whole lackluster and dull.
