Bit of trivia, same shopping centre from Rose

The beginning of death in heaven makes no sense. They are directly infront of st pauls, then the doctor turns around a bit and back, and now he and missy are infront of a shopping centre and st pauls is bit away around a corner it seems! the guys werent great at blending two filming shoots.
I love the cliffhanger to dark water so much. It felt really tense when we see the shot of the cyberman just blankly looking at clara (which is really creepy!) then we see them all awake and clunkily walk out their tombs! Then you have the missy reveal and a terrified doctor as we have cybermen spreading around the area (Although it's so obvious you have 6 costumes when you get two shots featuring 6 costumes! could have used more CGI trickery there! Oh and dont have shots of cybermen going out just to have the next shot so st pauls cyberman free with a person actually entering the building!) AND then we get a weeping danny still contemplating on deleting his emotions! I know a cliffhanger is good when I want to murder the writer for ending it there. And boy was moffat on my hit list!

@LGwalchmai95 One of the best trailers for the show. And the style is so brilliant! I love how it's done. It's obviously not realistic look makes it 10x better IMO It's like travelling through an image, or that time has stopped!. I wish I could see it in 3D because it clearly has that in mind! Oh and the old low quality shot going into a colour filled HD junkyard as the music goes from simple to explosive..fantastic! I also love the detail! A bar sign with a hoof from the daemons, a console from a dalek parliment ship, the keys to time, a small yeti sculpture, the 70's tardis key, bessie! And I love the gallifreyan on the cliff! And the budget for this would have been tiny! It's a weird parallel with most of the show really! Tiny budget, amazing execution
I think you're a bit wrong. Because when I shouted at the tech guy in the shop for being a git, he suggested I should shove the cable right up my arse.

The waters of mars and avatar are around 5 years old now. But it's the very high budget movie that feels dated when judging CGI. I can never believe that is a proper world, its just off to me. But a CGI company on a BBC wales budget still manages to make a quarry and some 3D computer models look like Mars. That's quite amazing. With tons of money, you can make something easily. But it's when your constrained that your mind really has to think of clever ways to do things.

I'd be okay with a new tardis, but keep the furniture and warm lighting, it's what made the current one so great.

The Cybermen were originally a reflection on people wanting to perfect themselves and the then more recent arrival of arm transplants with mechanical replacements. But that's just common stuff now, so it's good we have new things to reflect on. They use a data cloud to store and download their personalities. Just like we use clouds and tech to upload pictures, videos, contacts etc etc that make up a chunk of who we are. Even with online quizzes and bios, you are uploading bits of personality up there. Its great they are still mirroring even in 2014

"Attention! This is not a good day! This is Earth's darkest hour! And look at you miserable lot! We are the fallen, but today we shall rise. The army of the dead will save the land of the living! This is not the order of a general! Or the whim of a lunatic! This is a promise! A promise of a soldier!"
I wondered why Danny did this! He doesn't need to convince them, he has control of their minds! But then I realised it's another lovely thing about this man. Missy will just shout silly orders and mock, whereas Danny RESPECTS the dead. He doesn't just order them to fly up, he tries to encourage as well and treat them like his army of soldiers, not mindless drones which soldiers are sterotyped to be. He's taking them into a mission where there is no coming back, and he tries to be respectful while doing it

Danny is impossible. He didn't get a HUGE amount of time on-screen yet is one of my favourite side characters. And my god did he get a great ending. Actually breaking an inhibitor to comfort someone he loves. Then stands off the woman that did this to him. And then going out with his army of the dead to save the world of the living to follow a soldier's promise, that you will sleep safe tonight. He is literally made to be a mindless drone but breaks that role (almost like breaking a stereotype of soldiers you might say!). This depiction was perfect for the lead to remembrance Sunday. Oh and then at the very end, he gives his life (or a chance to return to it) so an innocent civilian child can be alive and well! Thank you Steven and Samuel for making this amazing man. PS- His very first line in ITD will be emotional as it's "Attention! Look at you miserable lot!" Which is the same thing he shouts to his fallen cyberaremy!

I love the "I am not a good man. Im not a bad man!" scene. The doctor looks so happy to have finally discovered his place in the universe and who he is. After 900 years of seeing generations die of old age or being killed while having the return of his race just a name away with horrible consequences.self..after ALL of that, he finally remembers what the doctor is. Fantastic acting from Peter and a great end to this arc. Just as good as 9 and his time after a long war.

HE'S WEARIN A HOODIE!! https ://38.media.tumblr.com/a6c9fa63b8602cb71f1872acf500a289/tumblr_nexqirWghu1r9zeo4o1_1280.jpg
Series 8 has been the most interesting series of DW for me. S1-4 are RTD seasons and it's a very enjoyable era. S5,6 and 7 are all different to me. S5 is like a traditional fairytale, S6 is like DW meets american drama (but not too much thankfully) and S7 just felt like nothing. Not fairytale or Movie of the week. It just felt like traditional doctor who. And I loved that. But S8 is very interesting. You have a character arc for the doctor in a series that is on level with 9's. You have monsters that have aspects of the doctor in them/ are more than "Im bad, kill kill kill" (Even the skovox git matched the doctor in it's narrow thinking of things. Just like 12 with the idea of a soldier) And Clara's arc really interested me too. This has been the first time in forever that I actually went into a DW episode thinking about what the doctor will do this week and actually getting worried. I LOVED that!
HES WEARING THE WHOODIE
The S8 UK blu ray cover- http
S8 USA Blu ray cover- http: //ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/91Vkh0lWfLL._AA1500_.jpg
So the UK gets the OTT action poses and the USA gets a more calm cover...did not see that coming. I like both covers, but I do like the cogs on BBCA's better. More rendered and realistic. Also, why does capaldi's hand never change!?

Cyberdanny is rubbish. Im renaming him Dan the cyberman

"Of course, Earth's darkest hour and mine, where else would you be". Such a lovely scene. I never really think about the brig being a cyberman, because how it's done does not say cyberman. The way it's shot reminds me more of it being a ghost of him. Silent, leading the doctor and clara to Kate. Always distant, just looking. Then he flies to the heavens This is not a skeleton of a character cased in metal, this is basically the ghost of him protecting his daughter and his best friend one last time, going out like he should have done, earning him to fully pass on
Best trivia by far- in one of the books I think (could be audio) UNIT in the future went galactic, becoming the United Galactic Intelligence Taskforce...or U-GIT. The future is so bright
Is missy putting on an accent. she likes 12's and says she might keep it, so is it a fake then?
Someone headcanoned that the brig flew to the stars, and after centuries with damage and memory glitches, he was just a head at the maldovar market who got picked up by a floppy haired git in a bowtie on a very dangerous adventure, leading him to help his friend during one of his darkest hours again. ..Certainly interesting
Okay, not all the accents here are great, but Missy and 12 have the most awesome scottish accents! I always laugh at the way missy says "I'll miss her too!!". Has to be the most scottish sounding voice on the show
@TardisBoy is the Mistress Well she didn't say the full coordinates, but it could work. Im a bit against really. Because I like to think she knew 100% it was not there, but she told the doctor to raise his hopes just to have them crushed, which makes him furious. Having the reveal that she was right takes away from that scene a bit. He now had no reason to be angry at her.
I admire the work of the makeup department! They didn't sugarcoat cyberdanny one bit! That is the look of a dead person who has been worked on! The dark around the eyes and the chunks of metal going into and pulling at the skin is just horrific, and something you'd more expect Big finish to do! Amazing work.
Theres no reason for cyberdanny to take clara to that graveyard, so Im going to headcanon that its the graveyard he wanted to be buried in, so he went there to die. As a soldier, Im guessing he had SOME thoughts about how his death should be handled in a life such as that, but not enough to organise, hence why he wouldn't be sure if he would be getting cremated. There, done!
Missy's theme is basically psycho marry poppins
@TheBiPunishment If she got shouted at for screwing up a plan she'd probably go "Ohh God, that was it! Ha.."
@TheBiPunishment I dont care if you just found out the family dog is ill, dont be rude to osgood!
Colonel Ahmed was a git! "It was captain scarlet, not thunderbirds!" The way he says that to osgood is rude! What a rude rude gitfaced git!
This was the biggest finale in the moff era invasion wise, and it wasn't even that big. I guess he just like more character driven stuff than large scale invasion stories, which is not a bad thing. He's done it in different ways every finale. S5 had the end of the universe..in a museum with a group of characters. S6 had the crumbling of time...focussed on the doctor giving up then being inspired when he hears about the brig and thinks about what the brig would want him to do (headcanons exist shut up) and then the ending is on a pyramid with again, a group of characters. S7 was about THE TOMB OF THE DOCTOR...and it focussed on a group in the tomb, and clara helping her best friend. S8- INVASION OF THE CYBERMEN...where Danny wants to die, clara is going through personal hell, the doctor discovers who he is, and we see a side of the master that wants his friend back by making him see they are not different! These are huge concepts, but they are just a tool to attempt to make or succeed some character driven stuff, and good on Moffat. I dont see a reason to criticise that! you may not like it, but it's not a bad thing to do. (Oh and this isn't me saying RTD is bad with character driven stuff!)
So nearly ALL of dark water was just lies lies lies! Missy isn't a robot, but the master. The dont cremate me stuff was a lie. The volcano was a dream. The skeletons were cybermen. Dr Chang isn't missy's boss. The nethersphere isn't the afterlife or underworld, but a timelord computer matrix. If this was a classic ep we'd probably get these all revealed bit by bit. But it's a whole ep! I really dont know what my reaction to it will be on a next rewatch. The concepts are still awesome and chilling, the ep is still great, and the volcano scene has impact, but Im watching a teensy fibette! It's like amazing lies!
"Cybermen dont just blow themselves up for no good reason dear. they're not human" Did I ever mention how much I love this line?
Okay, osgood is dead which means Kate is the only recurring UNIT character. FIX.THIS.NOW. I want to care for characters in the next UNIT story! Make a new UNIT family. It's what makes the perwee era so nice for me. The brig, Liz/Jo, Benton and Yates and the doctor..a lovely alien fighting family!
I still cant believe they changed the titles just for a joke! This is like putting Jack in the utopia titles for a laugh!
@Calebxy I think if every key is destroyed, the opening mechanisms are shut down. it's been shown the keys have some link to the TARDIS herself, so I used my imagination.
@Calebxy @The Administrator is Missy Claus! Keys can summon the TARDIS closer to the doctor (Time of the doctor)
Ask me before the master reveal, and I'd say I hate the idea of a female doctor..but Im in LOVE with it now! It could work so well! my one issue was how it would be handled with pronouns etc, but then I realised gender cant be much to a gender changing species, they just go with what their body is! And that's not saying YOU should, it's just what timelords do due to their different biology and logic! Now that it's sorted, Im really wanting a female doctor. Missy showed us that the master is the master male or female, it doesn't have to be an issue, and the gender change doesn't need to be referenced in any big way. But the major selling point for me was two pictures. The first is this one http ://merchandise.thedoctorwhosite.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/monopoly-2014e.jpg Now, Clara just FITS with the doctors there! I can really see a would have been female incarnation among them. She could be another doctor and it would just work! And the second was this http: //cdn02.cdn.justjaredjr.com/wp-content/uploads/pictures/2012/08/karen-bowler/karen-gillan-bowler-hat-06.jpg Karen just looks so much like a doctor there! Look at that overly british look!
They filmed the final scene of DIH on the same location as the one they used for Glasgow in DB O.o so bad location manager or clara wanted to meet in glasgow for no good reason.

I dont care if it's stupid and didn't make sense, the doctor summoning the TARDIS and falling to it with awesome 12 music is freakin brilliant! I would squeee but I hear that's dangerous.
Right, Im just assuming those guards guarding missy were hypnotised!
@vTempest I loved that the brig did it. one of the doctor's best friends didnt want to see the doctor kill someone. And he's killing a person who has been his enemy for many years as well, and nearly killed his daughter.
1 week, 5 days ago on Moffat on Finale Death, Master Future
"ask anybody who knows me! Im a incredible liar." *cyberdanny lowers his head* "..correct" How the hell did they make me feel sorry for something with a blank face!?
I love the new cyber voices, very moonbase/tomb.
This show's long history makes it's universe so weird and cool! The military organisation made in the 60's was in an episode in 2014 assisting the same character! And the leader (mostly) of that organisation is the daughter of the previous one who first appeared in 1968! AND that previous leader got changed into a good cyberman! I still cant process the fact the brigadier is still with us after 46 damn years! But Im guessing this shall be the last time we see him. How else could you bring him back apart from archive footage!? 46 years, longer than the master for now and close to the doctor, well done Alistair!
Since I love all of s8 it ranks second place to s5 which has a finale I like more

Well nothing 5 or under, at least there's that
The bond style fall to the tardis was awesome, but the music was masterful!
