People say clara and 12 are like a married couple...sorry have you seen 6 and peri? Peri: You even managed to burn dinner last night.
Doctor:Well, I have never said I was perfect.
Peri:If you recall, last night I was supposed to have a cold supper.
Doctor:Yes... that WAS an unfortunate accident...

I really like that the doctor actually was a pretty crap student in the academy. He failed by their standards because he was intelligent in other ways. It's a message people could really use with a meh education system.

You really begin to wonder how amazingly intelligent the timelords are if the doctor is only around the 50% mark for his education and how amazing their machinery is if something like the doctors tardis is really old and rubbish.

@Notsosmartguy's got no strings on him @Chris502 Yeahh, same type of people that hate danny for getting annoyed at clara leaving stuff in the TARDIS when that was just clara lying..
1 day ago on Neil Gaiman on Hopes for Capaldi Episode
I would love to see him return. His first was loved and his second hated or liked. I hope people do not have a negative view of him this early. Robert Holmes, one of the most loved writers on this show wrote 2 meh stories when he started and then he got amazing. So since Neil only had one bad one out of two I really think he could still be brilliant. And anyway, I believe a lot of NIS got cut
I hope this shuts moffat haters up about lack of female writers being moff's fault
@stargazer0118 I think a bit of 11 got in there

So lets look at all the nice yucky and dark stuff S8 has done. People's insides being used to repair a ship. Skin stripped to be used as a balloon. People turned into food for a dalek. Your brain turning into running soup. And after that you are forced to stay alive in a cell in pain. a spider that rips your space suit apart and feasts on you leaving bones. A computer that has killed dozens before in other ships just out of scientific curiosity and will just take away the lives of others if you dont do it's exact commands. Oh and you are pointless after so you dont need to live. And a creature that will split your body apart in 2 dimensions just to study different parts of the body. And I wouldn't say yucky or a bit dark but the charred arm of the police officer in TC was pretty Grimm.
Why have 2E missed out some things that are easy to put on the S8 boxset? The DB prelude? the trailers? Foxes' music video? Maybe more than 4 damn commentaries?

I love what they have done with the TARDIS set now. The orange light change has weirdly left a big impact. It feels more inviting and less cold and alien. Plus I just love seeing furniture in the TARDIS, which finally gives an actual use to that walk way above. The only annoying bit is lighting in some eps. In ITD, DB, Listen and others the lighting is quite dark and you only really get the orange to light the room up which is what I really like. But then you get something like MOTOE where its bright and it just seems boring again. It makes the console room lose it's atmosphere IMO. It looked amazing in ITD.
@TardisBoy I'll get it before you. Advantage of having a December birthday
S8 has massively improved on pacing! Every ep seems really long now. I dont know how they made scenes longer yet didn't rush a story. Look at listen, you had big tardis scenes and you had a long scene of the doctor calming a kid yet its one of the best in S8
S8 had pretty good security really. Nothing major was revealed about every episode until the leaking by BBCW, which is not connected to the DW team. So judging just them, they did very well. I dont know much about the finale and a lot of the eps were filmed in studio.
@TardisBoy It's close to S5 standards for me. But I doubt it will beat S5 because S5 had VATD. I've enjoyed every episode a lot. The only one that's not very rewatchable for me is KTM. I have to be in the mood to watch it.
@Edoe OH MY GOD I HAVE MISSED THIS!

@Djornad @Chris502 Im a fan of it myself. She's not addicted and is starting to think how he thinks. I like that her time with him is more damage than good. It reminds me of ace and 7. He wanted to do good for her but he hurt her. Also you cant say that word here!
People can say clara has done too much to the doctor, it's fair of you dont like it for some reason. But people say the things she's done are not very believable. She sacrificed her life for a friend. She didn't want her friend to do something she knows will break him so she told him what she sees him as and what she thinks he should do. And she helped a little boy stop crying by telling him a story about fear. I'd say most of them are believable. Yes the consequences are rather big. It saved the doctor, it made him save gallifrey and it started of 1's journey a little bit (though didnt make him a saint) , but her actions in those events are not totally OTT are they?

@yoshfiction @Djornad Well another time he got involved in a big event that can change the human race's future it was the waters of mars. Maybe he's actually learning from what a complete cock-up that was? This time he's letting humanity make it's choice. he is rather rude about it, but his intentions are in character IMO

I really hate it when people object to someone having a favourite doctor because he's the same man....no he is not! How the hell can you object to me liking 7 more than 1? You see them as the same person and not 2 separate things!? The doctor is basically just a bunch of traits and emotions. You have quirkiness. You have darkness. You have anger. You have erratic or you have controlled.You have have happiness. You have seriousness. You have complete stupid dorkness. You have grumpiness and kindness. And you have humanity or unearthly etc etc. These are the ingredients, but you can get so many different characters from these, so you can make so many different doctors. 11 is very kind and caring and shows it a lot. 12 says it how it is and cant care because someone in the room has to be cold to save the day. Both of these are very true versions of the doctor. the 2nd doctor would save the day with a slingshot and a tin of beans but the 3rd doctor would make some weird gadget from tech. And these are also two great versions of the doctor as well. So yeah, I get sick of hearing the same man excuse, because the traits of this man are used in so many variations that each version deserves to be separated from the other. This is also why I hate seeing moffat hate with gifs of 10 and people saying this is what the doctor would do because they didn't like what 12 did. Okay, you dont like the new guy and that's fine, but dont take one incarnation and judge another variation of the character based on that one incarnation. I've done this mistake before too. I judged 10's regeneration by basing it on other regenerations. But now I see that he was very human in his mind. It's how HIS incarnation thought and how he dealt with it and I shouldn't look back because that is who the doctor was right now! Im not a fan of the more human traits but that's who he is, and I should not look back at 5's regeneration to judge 10's. I no longer do this mistake. And I hope others dont do it as well. Maybe 10 would have been more caring if he was seeing people die in the orient express, but it's not that variation of the character there, it's 12's. He dealt with it by being cold, and he only did that because he's right, people having a gun to the head have to think very narrowly and cannot use up limited time. To save lives he had to ignore it when people lost theirs. He still tries to save the day but in different way to the other doctors, and that's good! It's great these ingredients of the doctor's traits have made another original character, but who is also the same man. Thats an amazing thing about doctor who. They have made 13 different men yet have made them one person too. No one has ever done that

@The Administrator @Chris502 And basic thinking. Problem-soultion-destory. Person-soldier-bad!
@Mark McCullough @Chris502 I'd say the sheriff too.
I think a lot of S8 villians have not been 100% proper villains so they can reflect the doctor in some ways. The half face man has changed so much, so is he the same man? Rusty actually got a part of the doctors mind. The teller did evil to save a life. 12 literally describes what the teller did 3 episodes later- "sometimes the only choices you have are bad ones". The mummy (who was suggested to be the main villain most of the ep) is a tired man who cannot die, doing what he sees as has to be done. And the listen monster could actually be the doctor's mind! And Im sure this could happen again for forest. I actually like this but if you dont, you cant be annoyed that they tried something new here.
This could all be crap TBH. It's a midnight theory.

My friend got confused about how claras echoes could happen even if NOTD didn;t happen due to TOTD. I wrote him a comment on my version why. For this explanation I will be using Pyramids of mars as an example: the villian could destory earth in 1911, but sarah jane says they dont have to stop it since she is from 1980 and everything must be ok! So the doctor takes her to 1980 and it's a wasteland. This is to show that if they choose to not stop sutekh (villain) then this is the timeline currently. So after seeing this timeline, sarah jane changes her mind and they go back to 1911 and save the day which means 1980 is restored.
Heeyy it's throwback tuesday! (shut up Im not waiting 2 days) Remember children in need 2010 and this little awesome trailer for ACC? https ://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bEOrsJkijE Love the track used. Oh please bring back long trailers.
I do agree below that TV trailers have been meh. Im just hoping the finale gets a minute long trailer. I just watched the trailer for the pandorica opens and it's got me excited for a 4 year old story!
@doctorwhotvuk They have been rather meh. But there have been some very good ones in Moff's era. TPO's made me extremely excited https ://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gi9CBxPj_-U The build up with the ticking made it very tense.
@stargazer0118 I wouldn't say different, just expanded. You saw she had a colder side and controlling side in S7, S8 has expanded that for me. But it is fair to see her as very different I guess since she has changed. the doctor has influenced her life, just like 10 did with his companions. But this time it's not a positive. And we really only see her life when the doctor pops in. We get hints of it when he's not around, but usually he's 2 minutes away from appearing. Same with amy in TEH, we missed those years because he did. So given that we dont see her 24/7 and that some families really do sometimes just meet up for family occasions and brithdays and Christmases, it's not unbelievable

I actually quite liked that the TARDIS mini doors were so obviously fake. It's obviously a cardboard picture and when the little doors are open you dont see the outside world, only blank whiteness. It's like something they'd do for the old series, I found it kind of charming.
I love that they used the classic series door opening sound effect when the doctor opened the TARDIS doors from the control. As I said, I really love moffat's era for it's references nearly every week

@The Administrator @Chris502 oh aye they've moved christmas to the week after ep 12 just to help the BBC with budgets!
Wouldn't it be a huge shock if there was a hidden 13th ep the week after ep 12? never gonna happen but it would be amazing

Right, Im okay with Clara changing her mind at the end of MOTOE due to her being addicted...but we were promised nothing would be the same again after KTM. So I will be very annoyed if it all goes ok until the finale where something is bound to go bad.

Im finding it quite funny that a professor of alien mythology tells a man that will one day possibly be merlin that earth myths are always fictional.The Doctor even has a little smirk himself when he says it
While I do think Courtney was handled quite well, much better than Angie, I think her reaction to death could be better. She admits she's scared to clara after being attacked by the spider, then she goes to the TARDIS and calms down and uses tumblr. TBH I expected more. She just saw a man get killed violently. This will be the first time she's seen someone die in front of her probably. I expected a lot more shock to that. I could have accepted the fact she admits to being scared as being the shock (but I do think it's more the spider attack on her) but it vanishes the second she's on the TARDIS. It's the same problem I had with Clara. She has a fantastic reaction in CW, but in NIS a woman dies in front of her and she has an eyebrow raise. It's not been that long for her in the TARDIS, she should still have that uneasy reaction.
