A toss up between 'Asylum' and 'Crimson' like them both for very different reasons.

Plunged for 'Crimson' just for being great fun.

Asylum of the Daleks for me!

Loved it.

Closely followed by The Crimson Horror and The Snowman!

Surprisingly for me, A Town Called Mercy. Liked it much more than I expected to.

Asylum completely blew me away. Even on multiple re-watches, it's like a film, everything looks amazing, there's genuine peril and menace and JLC's amazing and just wow. One of my favourite episodes ever.

Angels, The Snowmen, Cold War and Crimson Horror are sort of jockeying for 2nd place.

That's what I voted for, although I think Asylum was just as good.

It was tough between Power Of Three, and Angels, but I loved Amy and Rory so much I had to go for Angels.

Asylum of the Daleks was absolutely amazing, I loved nearly everything about it. The ending was slightly rushed but then that never used to be a weekly occurance so wasn't as big a deal.

The Crimson Horror is probably my second favourite. I thought it was brilliantly done, balancing the humour, drama, effects and characters brilliantly.

I would say A Town Called Mercy is also up there, as are The Angels Take Manhattan and The Rings of Akhaten. Perhaps Hide as well. However none of these would stand up very well in a previous series against the best of the bunch, so it really boils down to either Asylum' or Crimson'

I'll be giving my vote to Asylum of the Daleks - it sums up the content of Series 7 nicely. Amy, Rory and Clara all being sort-of in the same story, as well as the iconic Daleks getting a brilliant story for the first time since The Stolen Earth

I think its been a very mediocre year. Five good episodes and the rest are filler at best.

As much as I loved Journey, and Hide and Angels, there is only one winner for me, purely because not only is Asylum my favourite Moff ep, it is my favourite episode of New Who, so I can't not vote for it. It just has everything going for it. The Doctor in fine form, Amy at her best, Rory is awesome in this, plus the sheer shock of seeing Oswin, coupled with the emotional earthquake that is her ending up as a Dalek. Oh and did I mention the Daleks? Any story that has Daleks in it is awesome.

Oh God, not this arrogant "filler episode" tripe again...
I abhor that phrase.

Anyway, I voted The Angels Take Manhattan as it was superb.
This is closely followed by A Town Called Mercy and Hide which were also brilliant (apart from Hide's ending, but I can ignore that).

It's got to be TARDIS for me. We don't have episodes that add to the lore very often and an entirely TARDIS based episode is something I've wanted to see for a while. And it was well executed. It felt to me like the first mini-classic for a while.

There's none I haven't really enjoyed at all; Cold War was probably the weakest for me. I was really pleased to see Mark Gattis deliver a very good episode with the Crimson Horror.

Crimson Horror by a long way.
Very enjoyable, if a bit silly.
2 or 3 others have had their moments, Asylum, Cold War and the Snowmen.

Asylum mainly due to the ending.

Hide and Crimson Horror are tied for second.

Had a feeling Asylum would swoop it (continuing trend of exceptional leading episodes with series 5 and 6...blew me away!) i voted for second fave Crimson Horror

my 10/10 episodes for series 7 are -

Asylum, Manhattan, Snowmen, Hide and Crimson Horror so i am really torn with those 5 to be honest!

Mercy, Akhaten, Cold War and Journey are also notable episodes i will rewatch in the future....cannot wait for the next two

I seem to be in a minority here but I've actually enjoyed all of series 7 so far. The only episode I wasn't particularly keen on was The Rings of Akhaten, but even that wasn't poor, I just didn't like it as much as any of the others.

Series seven has been really wonderful. I've enjoyed it all. Pity about Clara being cocked up a bit. Voted Crimson Horror. Should probably have voted Asylum. Loved Hide. Dinosaurs a treat. Cold War nice. Bells - excellent. Rings was very good. Angels very good. Journey to Centre super. Town called Mercy solid Who. Snowmen - best Christmas episode maybe. Power of Three - what a good set up. UNITs new leader! Terrific. Until the resolution. Bugger. Never mind.

If only Moffat hadn't made a mess of Clara. And even though I don't like arc thingys, I can see why people who do like strong arcs prefer it to the Clara mystery.

A really really good run of episodes. Asylum and Crimson standouts.
