Series 7 best story yet and it was almost ruined by children!
11 May 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Kids and Sci-Fi rarely ever go together and when we all saw the ending to last week's "the Crimson Horror," I think we all knew what was coming. Thanfully Neil Gaiman delivered us an exciting story filled with great dialog and a great new character called "Porridge" (Warwick Davis). This episode, minus the awful Angie, was exciting from beginning to end and gave us enough bits about the Doctor and Clara's relationship leading us into next week.

Unfortunately, just like the episodes prior. A Nightmare in Silver has divided the Who fan base into a love/hate relationship. It really is something you need to watch and judge for yourself.

Regardless of the child actors this episode managed to convince me that Doctor Who is still going strong and delivering fine Sci-Fi on a weekly basis.
