There’s been much to enjoy from Doctor Who‘s last few seasons – Peter Capaldi, Michelle Gomez, the odd standout episode here and there – but ultimately, it’s been a bit scattershot in quality. It took a while for the Twelfth Doctor’s era to find itself, which meant it lacked the cohesive quality of David Tennant and Matt Smith’s eras. Seasons 8 and 9 were enjoyable TV, don’t get us wrong, but not up to the expected quality of the show.
With season 10, though, Doctor Who finally got its groove back. It seems that, as this was the final run for both Peter Capaldi and showrunner Steven Moffat, they decided to go all out in making it a year to remember. Due to the erratic scheduling of the Capaldi era – there was no season at all in 2016 – season 10 was hands down the best run of the show in a good long time.
