Flatline

A clever, creepy and satisfying episode that gave Clara the chance to the shine while the Doctor is trapped.

Sydney Derby

The Sydney derby has become one of the great sporting highlights in Sydney. This was just the seventh one ever, but it was an absolute cracker (esp. if you're a Sydney FC fan).

Mummy On The Orient Express

A throughly enjoyable episode with a scary new monster, great story telling and more insights into the Doctor's character.

U.A.E. vs Australia

An uninspiring match. Australia probably had the better of it, but were wasteful in the heat and humidity. It was nice to keep a clean sheet, but you can't win matches (our tournaments) if you can't score. Still more to do.

Kill The Moon

A creepy, atmospheric episode that builds nicely to an innovative conclusion. But is Clara finished travelling with the Doctor?

The Caretaker

A clever plot involving a new alien and a confrontation between the two men in Clara's life.

Time Heist

A clever, bank heist episode with the added wrinkle of time travel. There were some good ideas here and some more insight into the Doctor, but ultimately I think this could have been better with some more polish and maybe some more time (to properly explore the plot).

Listen

A thoroughly creepy episode exploring whether there are creatures who have perfected hiding and how would we know. The Doctor's corresponding search takes us across timelines and to crucial points in the childhoods of both the Doctor and Danny Pink. A much better episode than the previous one.

Australia vs Saudi Arabia

Australia broke an almost year-long drought with a scrappy 3-2 win over Saudi Arabia. It was a bit of an odd match. We got off to a flyer, up 2-0 after just six minutes. We improved in some areas, but dropped off in others. Saudi Arabia made a game of it, fighting back to 2-1 and 3-2, but we held on. Our 'keeper can consider himself lucky he wasn't sent off. A penalty was given which suggested a red card, not a yellow card to me. Still plenty more to do, but a win will help the confidence.

Robot of Sherwood

A traditional Who story in a way - a period piece with something alien that shouldn't be there. In this case it's the legendary Robin Hood battling a Sheriff of Nottingham with robot knights. Ultimately, while there were a couple of highlights and some witty moments, this was a light-weight story that compares poorly to the previous episode.
