At the time I am posting this it is still Halloween, so Happy Halloween everyone! Well seeing as how the first part of the series 8 finale of Doctor Who is about to hit our TV screens this Saturday night, I thought what better time to do a list of My Top 5 Doctor Who season finales! This list will only consist of New Who episodes (for the record I have seen Classic Who episodes) and two and three part episodes will be considered one episode. Okay here is my list!
Well, it’s sad to say folks, but we have reached that point already, Doctor Who‘s season finale is almost upon us *sobs.* “In the Forest of the Night,” marks the debut of writer Frank Cottrell Boyce (who is a screenwriter and author, most known for writing the Opening Ceremony for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London and for being a children’s author as well as established screenwriter of TV and film) and director Sheree Folkson (Casanova, The Decoy Bride) on Doctor Who. “In the Forest of the Night,” was the episode I was least looking forward to this season, because the idea of trees attacking the Earth sounded too reminiscent of M. Night Shyamalan’s 2008 unintentional comedy film, The Happening. Despite my feelings, I went into this episode with a “the glass is half-full” mentality, and was surprised to find that I did not hate this episode! Okay let’s get into the episode!
Well can I first say that I am loving the new season of The Walking Dead, only three episodes in and the writing has been great! This is an episode that I was really excited to talk about, because of everything that happened. Okay let’s get into the episode!
