Some intriguing titles there (and a hugely shameless pun in "Robot Of Sherwood"). We're particularly liking the evocative "Kill The Moon" - inspired by a line in Romeo's balcony speech in Romeo And Juliet, perhaps? - and the equally compelling pairing of "Dark Water" and "Death In Heaven", fittingly ominous choices for the series finale.
