He really doesn't have many good ones does he?

I liked how our earlier discussion about this season's Doctor being a bit paranoid about the Tardis gets addressed.

I wanted more on the Clara mystery (but then maybe not as this was a Gatiss episode.

Troughton is one of my favorite Doctors, so I've seen much of his stuff including the the very first Ice Warriors arc (minus the lost ones :-( ) (maybe the now laid off Disney animators can get to work on bringing the 108 back to life).

Anyway, it's great to see some old foes back again (but shouldn't they have been at the Pandorica Event if the Ice Warriors still exist?).

David Warner = awesome!

Was OK. Loved the Skaldak voice, that was so badass. The Professor guy was cool, as well. And Davos. Lots of good performances.

I'm surprised by Gatiss' Who TV output too because he wrote a couple of fantastic Who novels.

Warner is great I geeked out.

Was boring. Why does Doctor Who seem all too formulaic lately? I'm just not getting much out of it.

Well considering that Alien was ripped from the phenomenal Tom Baker episode "Ark in Space" :-D

The problem I see is there are too many episodes where the TARDIS decides where they go.

From last season...
The Doctor: “You don’t always take me where I want to go.
TARDIS: “No, but I take you where you need to go.”

While I liked Cold War, I think I would have liked to see the Doctor and Clara in a Las Vegas story more. Yes, it's great they landed on the sub and saved the world, but it's like they now have to start explaining how the TARDIS knows to take them wherever. And that complicates something that doesn't need complication.

I like it when the Doctor seeks adventure and when adventure finds him, but episodes like this where they just happen to land in this one exact spot at this one exact moment is oft times too convenient. And when things are convenient, they often get boring.

Anyone got around to buying the Reign Of Terror DVD? The animations for the missing episodes are gorgeous and I think a step up from the Invasion.

Bring on the Ice Warriors in August!

Working my way through season one right now only three episodes to go, but like doctor nine more than I thought I would.

Also for a newbie like me season one really did a good job explaining the Doctor and his back story.

I'll give it that. They did do a good job in bringing things back. I just didn't like Rose and thought the 9th Doctor needed time to grow on me.

Tennant grew on me and I liked his Doctor. However, I loved Matt Smith from the first scene.

My first exposure to Doctor Who was with Smith and I've only watched the first four episodes of his run, though so far he is my favorite. Now that I've gone back I'll be watching all the season in order. I have the Tennant complete box set to go through then back to Smith.

Rose has not bothered me that much though there is a little too much of 'I love danger' that she seems to find her in that sometime gives me a 'come on' feeling. Though I think Amy was a good as the doctor, wide eye, yet also very cautious when they went somewhere. (again, that is based on four episodes.)

This episode was OK. Fell apart a bit towards the end but I enjoyed it. Better than the writer's previous episode.
