Bugger the viewing figures. I wish they had that quality of story.

Army of Ghosts and most of Doomsday were terrific episodes.

I won't even mention The Stolen Earth (nor it's 8.78m viewers).

I do think the last couple of stories (plus Spyfall) have been decent episodes, but when you come to watch them and then watch even an alleged lesser episode like Boom Town or The Long Game as two examples from series one, that you realise that the writing, especially the writing of the characters and their interaction simply isn't there, in fact nowhere near as good.

As a spectacle Ascension of the Cybermen was enjoyable.
