Ranking series eight in order...

1) Flatline - Astonishingly innovative, restoring my faith in NuWho in 45 minutes...

2) Last Christmas - One of the best xmas specials, clever, thoughtful, funny and frightening

3) Dark Water - Bleak but mature and with surprisingly vivid characterisation

4) Listen - Beguilingly ambitious and unforgivingly vague, I love it

5) Kill the Moon - Crazy ideas, scary moments and terrific production values

6) Mummy on the Orient Express - A disappointing ending spoils a stylish and scary romp

7) Into the Dalek - This one has gone up in my estimation (cheers Jack)

8) Time Heist - Brainless but full of style, this is popcorn entertainment at its best

9) Death in Heaven - Inspired moments intersped with retarded moments - Moffat in a nutshell

10) Robot of Sherwood - Fun until the science fiction elements spoil things

11) Deep Breath - A really dodgy (and boring) first half makes way for a darker second half

12) The Caretaker - Irritatingly unfunny, the soap elements just don't work in this episode

13) In the Forest of the Night - It's trying to be different and unfortunately that is why it fails

Always makes me laugh your review of "Into the Dalek", you were very naive to believe that Danny and Clara were a sexually active couple.
Unfortunately they ended up being more false and artificial that Anakin and Padme.
