The Final Fixtures

Just think – in a mere fortnight, it will all be settled.

There are now enough results to see the final lineup. I’m not giving away any of the results (and it’s not over yet), but with the score currently standing at Eccleston 4, Tennant 3, it’s now known the playoffs look like this:

Round eight: Playing with Time

Father’s Day vs. The Girl in the Fireplace

Round nine: Er… Got References to Previous Episode(s) In It In Some Way

Boom Town v.s Love & Monsters

Round ten: The Finale

Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways vs. Army of Ghosts/Doomsday

The extra Tennant episode that remains on the bench is Fear Her, largely because it’s been the worst so far (it will be remembered for just two things: a truely superb materialisation gag, and the “I was a dad” line).

  1. I think you’ll find that ‘fear her’ was not the worst so far, since that was the one with the paving slab. Besides which, I thought it was rather good actually.

  2. Oh I think I’ll find it was. Because, though it’s hard to find fault with your finely honed critique of Love & Monsters, you have rather overlooked the fact that it was witty where Fear Her was leaden, intelligent where Fear Her was derivative, and touching where Fear Her was dull.
