That's still homophobia. No one has any right to judge whether gay people are ''wrong'' in their choices. You either accept us on equal footing with heterosexual people or you're homophobic. Period.

1. Don't assume you can speak for all homosexual women. 2. ''haha, men are such silly monkeys'' isn't ''anti'' male. it's a joke.

''Throughout Deep Breath there was a little running “gag”, how Clara views the Doctor as her boyfriend.'' Well... no, the point of that was that she *doesn't* see him that way...

I reckon it'll be a character that has never actually been in the show, but through the power of wordplay, ''making a return'' will still be technically true.

Because a] the length of TV time slots is decided by the BBC, not by tv show producers, the producers have to work with what they are allowed and b] he's talking about doing short, self-contained *episodes*, not prequels. that was literally the point of what he was saying when he said ''they're not prequels''.

''He Said, She Said'' was much more a piece of visual poetry than a TV episode. You couldn't really do that sort of thing in a normal TV episode. That's why this online expansion is so great -- you can be far more experimental than when you're restricted to a 45 minute adventure story. <p>

1. I've seen people argueing about this on gallifrey base and you're wrong. The [very few] people who had an issue with it had an issue because ''playing it at the cinema makes it less ~special~ waaahh''

2. I don't think you understand how the license fee actually works. Neither to the people complaining about the license fee, if that is in fact the majority of complaints.

''Deus Ex Machina: plot device whereby a seemingly unsolvable problem is suddenly and abruptly resolved by the contrived and unexpected intervention of some new event, character, ability or object''. By virtue of the fact that the sonic screwdriver is _already long established in the show_, it cannot be a deus ex machina.

''Maybe this is what Moffat has got planned and he’s subtly trying to prepare us?'' No. Goodness, people have really misunderstood what he was asking. He wasn't suggesting that the Doctor was human or related to humans at all. He was asking in which episode the Doctor was first defined as an alien, because the original production crew were wishy-washy on the Doctor's backstory.

 Argh, argh.

What will happen is that ''the search for Gallifrey'' will play out in the background of the regular adventures. That is exactly what it was designed for, and what Moffat said will happen.

One, that's not his only quote on the subject, but I don't want to go googling for the specific one I'm referring to in case I run into screeching anti-Moffat blogs;

Two, that's still a far cry from ''He will absolutely find Gallifrey in the near future. This is a confirmed FACT.''

''Regardless of if you agree or disagree with the debate, Gallifrey at some point in the not too distant future will return. For the first time since the show’s revival it’s no longer a likely possibility – but a confirmed certainty.'' No, it is not. Sorry, but Moffat said himself that the Doctor was unlikely to ever actually find the planet. Having the POSSIBILITY of finding it is a motivation, it gives him a reason to do what he does.

Simply repeating the assumption that ''boys like sci fi and girls like romance!!!11'' isn't actually proof that your argument is correct. You need, like, solid evidence.

I've analyzed the show inside and out predominantly with women. Maybe you're not seeing girls on forums because the rampant sexism in fandom puts them off.

Can people quit assuming that girls don't like sci fi and only watch for the characters? Seriously, it's an absolutely ludicrous assumption, and you have no proof to back up the claim that the gender demographics of the show have changed.

They're not bringing back Gallifrey any time soon. Moffat and Co have made this abundantly clear. The promise of Gallifrey being somewhere out in the Universe simply provides the Doctor with a motivation.
