Thought this one was ok, still not watched all of last weeks. Finding my interest in the show waning now, the endless River Song appearances, Amy and Rory I'm not that keen on tbh either. Love Matt Smith though and I just hope my interest in the show comes back.

I, for my part, have not said that it is less popular. What I have said is that a lot more folks that perhap Moff would like are commenting on the uneven spread of the episodes.

It is that unevenness that, for me, is making for a less easily enjoyed season than the previous. In one of my more recent posts, I say that I will probably get to like it over time, perhaps as much as the 5th...but I would like to see how Moff pulls it all together in the end.

I have a huge amount of respect for Moff and I really like what Matt has done with his role to date, and I have been burning the eps to DVD as they are aired, so no one can say that I do not like it.

But it is very un-evenly mixed in it's quality and story telling.

On the whole I would take Moff's written ones over RTD's (although do rate highly his Turn Left, Midnight, Stolen Earth, Parting of the Ways and Doomsday), but I do think RTD was a better show-runner and managed to get a good mix of episodes in his series. Yes there were some duff ones in there, but for me there was always the feeling of did not like that, but there will be a better one next week.

With Moff and particularly with this series I dont think the variety has been there, espically when you take the last 3 episodes which have all basically been the leads running around/trapped in a building. Now I have liked all 3, but do think that there similar themes/situations has taken something away from each following episode.

The season started with a cliff hanger, and with an effective and truly creepy looking villain too. This is a very brave move indeed.
The mid-season break was also bit of an annnoyance as there is nothing better at destroying any dramatic flow that the season was building than throwing a long break into the middle of it all.

I feel that that has been a major contributor to the unevenness of it because it commits the season to a certain course of episode styles, be they 'Stand-Alone' or 'Arc'.

Still, it's the Cybermen tomorrow and (I'd wager) a reappearance of someones's 'only partially failed attempt to build a TARDIS' type console.
