Yeah, Season 5 was maybe my top favourite ever of NuWho, but it felt like everything after that went downhill pretty fast. I'm excited for the combo of new Doctor + showrunner.

I agree. Season 1 was awesome once it got going, but had a number of pretty flat early episodes, and my favorite season would be Season 4, except for the ending, which sucked all my love out of that season. So, I'd agree with you about Season 5.

I don't think things really started downhill until after Amy and Rory left. I remember a number of people (who I mostly still disagree with) talking about the misogyny associated with how Amy Pond was written, but things with Clara started out barely OK and swiftly got worse with both 11 & 12.

Looking at the list of episodes, there actually were several I really liked in S6 (Doctor's Wife, Rebel Flesh/Almost People, Girl Who Waited) and I thought River and Eleven were sweet together, but I personally hate female body horror pregnancy stories and that storyline was impossible to avoid. I also liked Asylum of the Daleks and Power of Three in S7. But after Amy and Rory left, yeah, it just wasn't the same, and I felt like Clara never really cohered as a character. I'm the one person on the planet (besides my husband) who didn't like Name of the Doctor, too. We tried the first few Capaldi eps, but fell behind and realized we weren't interested enough to catch up and that was pretty much that. I also didn't really care for Missy. Like John Simms, she was just too completely OTT for me. But I've rewatched S5 a lot because it's such a joy.
