Death in Heaven

"Okay, f**kity bye."

Let me just start off by saying what a cool name "Death In Heaven" is. But if I were just to review the name, this would be a very short article and - to the disappointment of those looking for a quick read - I don't think it will be! Unfortunately, I don't think Death in Heaven fully reaches the level needed to elevate Dark Water. Instead, it manages to come out just above average, and that is mostly down to the efforts of one character...

Dark Water

"Its the end of the world as we know it. To paraphrase a popular Bangles song"

More than any other, I have felt that Series 8 has all been leading up to the two-part (at last!) finale. Usually this would be a criticism but in the case of Dark Water, it's more of an emotional build up. Almost all of the Series 8 has been working around the issue of Clara's lies, questioned what kind of man the Twelfth Doctor is, how their relationship affects each other and the people around them. Dark Water and Death in Heaven looked set to conclude those emotional arcs in a big way.

Plus we get to find out who Missy is!
