Victory of the Daleks
I enjoyed while I was watching it, but afterwards I was disappointed. The first half, with the WW2 Daleks and the mystery, was excellent, but all that was pushed aside to cram in the new style of Dalek.
There were also just too many logic problems.
Why didn't people just unscrew the lightbulbs? How did they go from a sketch to fully functional prototypes (complete with powerful laser weapons) in a few minutes? Why didn't the Daleks just shoot the Doctor immediately after the 'Self Destruct Button' was revealed as just a Jammie Dodger? How does that 'love conquers Dalek bomb' idea work then?
It all just felt very rushed, and considering the potential of the idea and the first half it felt like a wasted episode to me.
The Time of Angels
though I'm still on the fence about. It was undeniably an excellent episode, but there a few things that marred it. First of all, Moffat seems to be cramming too much in to his episodes this series. The Beast Below
didn't give reasons for half its best ideas, and this time it takes far too long to get the characters exploring the Maze of the Dead. Loved the opening, but tonally was out of place and they really needed to get on with the story. None of Moffat's other two-parters have had this problem, in fact I don't recall any Doctor Who two-parters doing it at all.
There were also a few too many moments of “FOR CHRIST’S SAKE JUST TELL SOMEONE” that mar the worst horror movies and spoilt a lot of the episode for me.
Like Amy in the trailer with the recording moving, those two clerics wandering out of eyesight when they’re supposed to be sticking together, Amy again when something weird is obviously going on with her eye, and finally Bob wandering off to find those other two on his own. If his radio was being disrupted I would’ve understood, but he made no attempt to mention to the commander that the other two were missing.
The twist about them all being Weeping Angels was good, but unfortunately was given away entirely by that two heads comment earlier. Amy’s smart enough to ask why the ship’s not crashing down on them but not smart enough to ask “then why didn’t they build statues with two heads then”? No amount of "perception filters" can change that (which was wrong anyway).
Hopefully the next episode will eliminate these problems.
