Critic Reviews for Doctor Who: Season 6

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon launches series six like a rocket. It marks a return to proper, scary Doctor Who, leaves many tantalising threads dangling and ends on a dazzling cliffhanger.

Steven Moffat and the "Doctor Who" crew offer up yet another great episode with Toby Haynes behind the camera -- though the episode's big cliffhanger will likely cause more than a few fans' heads to explode.

The fact that a show that's been running on-and-off for almost 50 years can still subvert expectations, and produce something as simultaneously shocking and thrilling as 'The Impossible Astronaut', is something for the Who team to be proud of.

By ramping up the action, adventure and scale to series finale proportions, the Doctor Who crew evade most of those pitfalls and tee things up for a series that could just be unlike any we've seen before.

February 19, 2019 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

"The Impossible Astronaut" certainly started the season with a bang, throwing up any number of mysteries and plot threads to draw the audience into further episodes. I can't wait to see where the rest of the season takes us.

This is an exciting way to begin the series, but also a dark one.

Audience Reviews for Doctor Who: Season 6

The season starts with a bang and ends with a bang. A season with a few "okay" episodes, but no bad ones with legendary episodes sprinkled in between. Sit back and enjoy the ride.


Super Reviewer


Not without merit all together, but very lacking for what we expect from the series.
