Doctor Who Series S7B – The Sherlock Related Review

As we promised at the end of September 2012, we’re back in Time Lord mode with the second half of our Sherlock related review of Doctor Who Series 7, examining the episodes that crossover with our favourite detective through their writers and directors (and on occasion, cast members). The latter section of the seventh series features work from the three writers of Sherlock, with Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss handling two episodes apiece and Steve Thompson scripting a single instalment. As before, this isn’t an all encompassing review of the entire series, just these five episodes – The Bells of Saint John, Cold War, Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS, The Crimson Horror and The Name of the Doctor. Please note though we’ll be discussing some spoilers in detail throughout as we examine how these episodes function individually and as contributions to the final episode.

DOCTOR WHO SERIES 7.0 - THE SHERLOCK RELATED REVIEW

Doctor Who has always fallen under our gaze due to the crossover with the creative crew of Sherlock, but we’ve never actually sat down and reviewed any part of the series. We thought we’d put this right from now on, and simultaneously do something a little different, by focusing on the episodes in each series of Doctor Who that have a direct link to Sherlock. To that end, what follows isn’t an all encompassing review of the first five episodes of Series Seven, but a close look at the two Steven Moffat scripted instalments - The Asylum of the Daleks and The Angels Take Manhattan - as well as Dinosaurs on a Spaceship featuring Rupert Graves. Please note though we’ll be discussing spoilers in detail.
