For the most part, this whole season of Doctor Who has been marked by high points. After several weeks of episodes that so successfully raised the bar, I was unfairly critical of last week's "Flatline," which was actually quite good. I'm afraid of falling into the same trap with "In the Forest of the Night," and that by comparing it to good chunk of excellent episodes that preceded it I might be judging it too harshly.

Last week Doctor Who showed us how to build a story on emotional tension between three central characters. It worked, and together with another standout episode this season, "Listen," established The Doctor's relationship with Clara as a fully realized, developing drama. "Kill the Moon" moves that story further along with its most impactful scene yet, but unlike "Listen" and "The Caretaker," it was nearly dragged down in an otherwise unstable episode. More
