Doctor Who: Last Christmas by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who review).

Be careful: There may be spoilers but you might also be dreaming this and might have to read this again later when you wake up.

Doctor Who: Flatline by Jamie Mathieson (Doctor Who review).

Be careful: There may be some unintentional spoilers although I won’t give away the ending. ‘Flatline’ has to be the best episode so far this season.
