Definitely a disappointing season.
I think Matt Smith has been the best Doctor in the modern series and was able to draw you in by himself. In saying that I think the combination of Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman was brilliant, even my wife who hates Dr Who would find herself drawn into watching them, excellent onscreen chemistry. Peter Capaldi and Jenna combination took a bit to warm up to but it did end up working.
The Peter and Pearl (Bill) combination has been hard to really draw an emotional attachment too, maybe it just hasn't been long enough?
Agreed on the weeping angels, as monster the concept is brilliant and terrifying.
Karen Gillan (Amy) apart from being in the Marvel universe now is also in the new Jumanji.
The whole Amy and Rory and their daughter who ends up being River Song was quite a good piece of background storyline.
