Spontaneous combustion...is that like love at first sight?
If you were going for the Sherlock reference, it's A Study in Pink, not of Pink!

@YaelMoise 'Not sure why she needed to be pegged down like that, politically speaking'
It gives her character depth. This is a strange list of arguments I'm seeing here but that has to be the strangest.

@sontaran17 @TheDoctornator There's a Dalek flashback as well. The clip of the extermination from the Next Time trailer at the end of World War Three.
Someone has to do a montage of all the Heaven scenes with Spirit in the Sky when the series is over. It's too perfect.

@Djornad Who is it?
@Chris502 @TheOncomingHurricane Your friend is male Clara...
@Chris502 @TheOncomingHurricane That'll work...
@Chris502 @TheOncomingHurricane Hmmm...I might switch that Truth Field on...
One thing I do like about 12's abrasiveness is that every compliment feels well earned. I loved 'You're probably an amazing teacher.' because it felt so genuine. I guess it's a bit like our Chris :D
@stargazer0118 @TheOncomingHurricane Yes, people are killed and discriminated against over being Ten/Rose shippers every day.

@DrOswald @TheOncomingHurricane Unfortunately, I've been feeling like this about it since I saw Gatiss' name.
I concur with DWTV's opinion. Robot of Sherwood continues to obstinately look meh after the next time trailer.
As for ITD - love it. Not quite as good as DB IMO, but I'm really loving the philosophical layering of everything.
@The Genie I love Doctor Who because it's progressive, because it promotes equality, pacifism, compassion, inclusion, second chances, family, friendship, change for the better and speaking out when no one else will.
No wonder the hack hates it, as the Torygraph promotes none of these things.

@stargazer0118 Nobody replied because the contrast of an issue that affects many people's lives with that of a disagreement over a fictional relationship is a monumentally stupid one.

Okay, I've tried the Selby Scorer on Series 7:
1. The Angels Take Manhattan - 9.9
2. Asylum of the Daleks - 9.6
(=)The Name of the Doctor - 9.6
4. The Snowmen - 9.3
5. The Bells of Saint John - 8.8
6. Dinosaurs on a Spaceship - 8.3
7. The Rings of Akhaten - 8.2 (what)
8. Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS - 8.1
9. Hide - 7.7
10. The Crimson Horror - 7.6
11. The Power of Three - 7.4
12. Nightmare in Silver - 7.1
13. Cold War - 7
14. A Town Called Mercy - 5.6
Interesting results, really. Rings gets a huge boost from categories like setting and soundtrack, tbh. Otherwise everything places where I think it should, but the bottom 3 are much higher than I'd rate them due to setting, soundtrack and direction scores, which are a lot less important to me than some other things.
@Ladydetemps Personally no. It doesn't make sense at this point.

@The Genie @doctorwhotvuk From DoG's review: 'At one point, it feels a little like we're getting a sort of re-run of Robert Shearman's wonderful Dalek. Yet it emerges as quite a different beast.'

@doctorwhotvuk Regarding your last sentence - I knew it...
@doctorwhotvuk So I'm guessing that's why DoG said it could have done with a couple of extra minutes.
@The Finn @sontaran17 Yeah, I was confused about that...

@TheDaintyDraper We live in a time, where this "gay rights" campaign is just a license to indulge in intercourse with a member of the same sex.
You what? It's for the right to be treated like a straight person without being discriminated against. Including expressing of love through marriage, kissing, etc. Did you even read the article?

@twoheartsonemind @Sephora.IWishIWasScottish Well, Oswin came from her, so she probably has latent potential?
Unfortunately when dealing with people who share decent viewpoints, they may not share others. And that article has brought out for my money, Tumblr's worst anti-Moffat critic. God help us if he sticks around...

'The dinosaur makes for a gripping opening and a poignant scene posthumously, but it raises too many questions to be taken seriously. How was it pulled forward through time by the TARDIS?'
It's been established that living beings in contact with the TARDIS get pulled along...although that must have been rough for the dinosaur, she must have wondered why she was being pulled along by the throat at an insane speed XD
@The Genie @ClassicWhovian It's also been long documented that LBGT+ people gravitate towards DW because of the feeling of being outsiders, just like the Doctor with humanity.

@FrannyBaby101 I don't see how it's anti-male when it's at most a term of endearment? Because Vastra has a lot of affection for the Doctor and he's a good friend of hers.
@startrek_into_thetardis Yes, and that's why they're good friends with the Doctor...who is a man? It's a tongue in cheek comment rather than 'men are ugh, rapists, murderers etc' which you do see.
@startrek_into_thetardis You're seriously saying 35% of TV/movie characters are gay? Errr...
@Sephora.IWishIWasScottish @Oodkind 'I'm just glad that I don't pay the TV tax." I wonder if they own a TV now because if they do they just admitted to breaking the law...
@allons_ywibblywobbly 'oh, anyone caught that dirty comment of Jenny to Clara, that she may want to stay away from the cupboard as she may hear some noises coming from it...?' Yeah, that's in your head, if you were actually watching you would have known that that was due to Vastra eating a criminal after interrogating them and was in no way a dirty joke!

@jsx I'm very sorry that your friend felt that she had to do that, and I understand the plight of Christians in the Middle East is a harrowing one, but I was talking very specifically about murder for having the opinion that homosexuality is wrong..You'd probably find that those massacring Christians either agree on this point or think you don't go far enough. And well, it's difficult for me to accept your opinion when your opinion contributes to self harm and suicide.

@Deus_Ex_Machina Wait, I misread. But it doesn't really matter because you're asking me to equate the two. If you didn't believe blacks and whites were equal but advocated the same, would you still expect me to just get along?

@Deus_Ex_Machina 'Just because we have these different opinions, doesn't mean we all think any less of each other does it?' Yes. Yes it does.
@ Notsosmartguy the dalek of Jersey @TardisBoy And such reasons are bollocks that according to theologians aren't even supported by the Bible.
@Sambo_Caesar @jsx 'discriminate the same as any other group' Show me an example of a homosexual murdering a heterosexual for that reason. Go on, I beg you. We are weary of being killed for who we are.
@Deus_Ex_Machina Strange, because it's the closest thing to a coherent opinion you've posted so far. The rest has been weird...nonsense, really.
@Kathrin Lily Franke @Planet of the Deaf @EDAboii Clara has a thing for Romans? I think you'll find that was Amy...
@Bloodrush Beautifully summed up. Thank you.
@Deus_Ex_Machina Comparing homosexuality to murder is probably enough to net you a ban. Bon voyage!
@AztecsDaleksAndCavemen @Dalekium @TheOncomingHurricane Because in my experience people do?
Can we also consider banning people who have liked homophobic comments?
