I just finished listening to Big Finishes' production with Peter Purves and Maureen O'Brian and they were both wonderful in it. And Peter's imitation of the Doctor is spot one. It was the just released audio "The Bounty of Ceres" if you are interested.

Matt Smith was my first Doctor that I saw. Now I am 54, but I had never heard of Doctor Who until I caught it on TV one day after doing rehab. And I saw this hyperactive puppy dressed up with a cowboy hat and there was a NASA astronaut. Well, you get the idea, I was hooked. Then I find out it was Series 6 already, then I find out it has been on since 1963 and he is the 11th Actor to play the role. I figure I am home a lot now, I have plenty of time to catch up and watch episodes if I want to. And did I ever.

But I consider Peter Capaldi my Doctor.

As a fairly new Doctor Who fan, I have been slowly watching episodes from the classic era. Between watching them on Netflix, Hulu Plus, and buying them, I have probably watched about a third of them. It has been fun watching the history of Doctor Who on the screen.

You don't know where you are going if you don't know where you have been.

That was the biggest reason for me to order it since finding it to watch here in the US is impossible. So I took the chance that it was going to be an all region DVD release and I could watch it on my US region DVD player. It worked fine!

Capaldi would like to back up the clock so that he is only 51 years old (but then so would I). But then he has been a fan for much longer than I have since I didn't hear about Doctor Who until 2011.

@DocWhoFan @Who is the Doctor needs his Clara @Antee991166 But Big Finish isn't the BBC.  So Chris may have a better relationship with Big Finish and would be able to work out something with scripts that meets his approval.  As to scheduling, most scripts are recorded in 2 to 3 days, so availability is usually worked around.

@Antee991166 @DocWhoFan The BBC License renewal should occur next year so it is possible that they get some kind of approval for the new era Doctors and companions.  If I was Big Finish, I would be trying quite hard to pull that off as the existing classic era Doctors and companions are not getting any younger.  



I have heard Jenna Coleman in the Destiny of the Doctor - The Time Machine and it was great.  She did a wonderful job.  Moffat left plenty of stories to tell like the visit to the planet of the fish people or where they were chained up (I would like to know that one).  We only see 13 weeks a year of the Doctor, there is plenty of time for he and Clara to have other adventures.  Same with the other past Doctors.

They showed the Ultimate Companions and the Ultimate Time Lord on BBC America before the start of the series this year. It was also part of the Apple iTunes collection. I found both to be very interesting, particularly Moffat's description of Matt Smith's Time Lord.

I think he became more likable as the series progressed. His scene with Clara after the betrayal where he said he would help her anyway is a case in point to his warm and fuzzy side.

Until Clara is truly gone, one of those other versions of Clara could always come back. But as to how they got out of the time stream, I am guessing that we will never see that occur. We heard the answer from Moffat already anyway.

I think my problem is that I don't think of this as a finales but more of part one of a trilogy. And as such it doesn't feel like a finales to me. It ends with a cliffhanger and even lets you know that it is coming back with more on 23 Nov 2013. just my two cents worth.

Another point of view is that Clara sacrificed herself by throwing herself into the time stream to save the Doctor out of love, even though she would never admit that to herself.

I am leaning towards her return for series 9. I agree that her story hasn't been fully told yet and the Doctor isn't ready to give her up.

She sure was looking like she was trying to convince herself that the Doctor was real before walking into the TARDIS. In fact, she walked into the TARDIS like she was sleepwalking.

A proper trio in the good ship TARDIS. The Doctor, a female companion like Clara that is bright and sassy, and a male companion that is not a romantic interest, also bright, intelligent and able to verbally spar with the Doctor.  Both companions need to be able to stand up to the Doctor and let him know if his moral center is drifting off course.

It would be interesting to be able to listen in to a conversation between Moffat and Capaldi to see what Peter thinks of Moffat's work. What if anything if felt was wrong and where Peter wants to improve on Series 9. Now that would be an interesting listen.

I finally was able to watch the episode and it was wonderful. I was sitting in the parking lot at the racetrack with a new friend that I found was a Doctor Who fan and we watched it on my iPad before the race. She and I were both shocked when Osgood was killed by Missy, smiled at the deception by Clara at the beginning when she passed herself off as the Doctor and nearly cried at the scene in the graveyard.

You almost think that Clara is gone until Santa shows up at the end and says that the Doctor can't leave Clara like that.
