Doctor Who Series 6 - Closing Time
I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t a little underwhelmed by the penultimate episode of Doctor Who. It just felt like it could have been so much more heading in to next week’s series finale, and instead it was a fun but throw-away romp around a department store.

Night Terrors, penned by Mark Gatiss, was definitely a slower-paced, stand-alone episode. Like...
