Just on the convo from below - I have to agree with the next time trailer - I actually think I was more excited for Forest before the 2 anticlimactic and utterly generic trailers. The quality of publicity this year has been really inconsistant - Pre Series 8 and it was amazing! World Tour, Magazine Preview, Epic Promos, Epic Teasers, A Bloody Dinosaur invading Parliament Square -- And since it's begun it's like they've gotten complacent. 10 second trailers that show flashes of BANG BANG TREE TREE CATCHPHRASE OF THE EPISODE and then the LOGO for half a minute - Good thanks

@stargazer0118 Just because they're not following the trend of RTD integrating a whole extended family as supporting characters doesn't mean they don't exist...

@stargazer0118 @KingoftheOod4450 But we really hadn't seen that much of the Time War until last year - Unlike the Time War the seige of Trenzalores effect is evident enough it doesn't need to be mentioned every second episode (Looking at you RTD)

@YaelMoise waits for the trees to take over @ Notsosmartguy Agent of C.L.A.R.A. @sontaran17 I thinks its more of a shifting focus on Clara from Series 7 Clara rather then other companions - All have which be the focus points of their respective series

@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Tigger... Or Rather Tiger.. Well yes that is the point of the 12th Doctor's character - he's meant to be more reserved and less approachable.... luckily there are more then enough charming moments

CLARA grabs THE DOCTOR - 

CLARA Doctor! What happened? 

THE DOCTOR  

You see? 

CLARA I see what? 

THE DOCTOR Daleks don't turn good - it was just radiation, affecting its brain chemistry, nothing more than that. No miracle.  


On Clara: registering the Doctor's reaction, scanning his face. Is he... pleased? 

JOURNEY gives up trying to raise Morgan - 

JOURNEY Let me get this straight. We had a good Dalek, and we made it bad again? That's all we've done?? 

THE DOCTOR There never was a good Dalek. There was a broken Dalek, and we repaired it - 

JOURNEY You were supposed to help us - 

THE DOCTOR I gave it a shot, it didn't work out. It's a Dalek, what did you expect??? 

JOURNEY No more talking, you are done.  


Clara and the Doctor, on their own for a moment.  

The Doctor surprised, taken aback. On the receiving end of such a glare from Clara. 

THE DOCTOR What's that look about? 

CLARA That's the look you get when I'm about to slap you! 

And she slaps him hard. 

THE DOCTOR Clara - !! 

CLARA We're going to die in here, and there's a tiny piece of you that's pleased. The Daleks are evil after all, everything makes sense, the Doctor is right! 

THE DOCTOR Daleks are evil - irreversibly, that's what we just learned!!! 


CLARA No, Doctor! That is not what we just learned!!!

@ Notsosmartguy Agent of C.L.A.R.A. Despite his occasional coldness and apathy - I'd say for the most part (Particularly Deep Breath, Flatline, Robot , The Caretaker ect.) he's been possibly the most lovable incarnation yet... in a weird.. restricted way... but those moments - hints of comedy and frustration (often at the same time) really make him for me.

 Nice, Clear Arguments - and a more then fitting response to my earlier article on the same issue. I agree very much with the fact that most opinions on this matter are down to personal perceptions on on Clara and The Doctor. I'm going to try not to write in defence for my side of the argument - due to the fact there is an article on it from last week XD But just a few things: 

Some people also feel that she has had too greater an effect on the Doctor’s life. She basically created him in Listen, she reversed his darkest moment in The Day of the Doctor, and she got him a new regeneration cycle in The Time of the Doctor.

- I don’t think she made the Doctor in Listen, she somewhat inspires him to follow the path SHE’s seen him follow, the path she’s admired him for following – with the words she’d heard HIM say to Rupert earlier in the episode; if anything that’s a tribute to the Doctor rather then an original thought by Clara. Not to mention it would take a lot more then whispers in a dream to steer the timelord in the right path – it was already said prior to Clara’s beautiful and moving speech that he had a certain distate for battle.

- SHE DID NOT REVERSE HIS DARKEST MOMENT. I’m sorry but I am reaching the end of my patience with this argument XD Clara acts in a way in which any companion or friend would have done; overwhelm by shock and heartbreak over the impossible decision the Doctor is about to make. She doesn’t forcefully change the Doctors mind or come up with a solution to save Gallifrey: She reminds him of the reasons she adores and admires him: Because he’s never cruel or cowardly, never gives up and never gives in; and it is the Doctor who finds another way to bring a permanent end to the Time War without the murder of billions of innocents.

- The extent of Clara’s role in Time is simply begging the Timelords to help the man she’s seen help so many others. If anything this doesn’t stress her role in saving the Doctor’s life, rather a tribute to the impact the Doctors had on hers and her desperation to not accept a man who has spent 900 year fighting for the lives of the innocent should go without reward.

Also, yes there are moments of coldness from the Doctor – moments of unapproachability. However, there is more then enough charming, lovable moments from this new Doctor and I think you’ve been a tad excessive on your description of the Doctor as the antagonist. But then again – Its all perception ay!

Great Read, Very Well presented points, Perfect balance of critic and understanding. While I may not agree I enjoyed reading it very much! Keep it up

@Mikeyboss182 I'm pretty sure it was made quite clear that most of the Doctor's later judgment on Danny was to do with the fact that he wasn't sure if he was good enough for Clara

And just on the Doctor - Despite his occasional coldness and apathy - I'd say for the most part (Particularly Flatline) he's been possibly the most lovable incarnation yet... in a weird.. restricted way... but those moments - hints of comedy and frustration (often at the same time) really make him for me.

Well it's indeed a pity that neither of you enjoyed Flatline this week - especially David seeing how much it has seemed to pull you away from the show. A Great shame indeed and hopefully you are both recaptured into the series as soon as possible! On the story itself, luckily I can say that this week I disagree with both of you and absolutely loved Flatline. It's character focus was spot on, its main threat present and somewhat chilling, some great moral background ideas, perfect balance of humor- action- and emotion, and its resolution clever and suitable for the episode.

@tom colman Thats just plain silly! Overnights and AI's are not Fact, they are either premature or inconsistant. 

The Ai's and overnights are silly - not your opinon- Just clarifying :)

@YaelMoise waits for the trees to take over @sontaran17 @ Notsosmartguy Agent of C.L.A.R.A. @dewyjns See in Mummy i felt the same highlight on 12 that there was in Time Heist, Into the Dalek, Deep Breath (Though still experimental) and a lot of moments throughout the rest - So I think we can attribute it a little to perception - be it mine or yours.

@YaelMoise waits for the trees to take over @sontaran17 @ Notsosmartguy Agent of C.L.A.R.A. @dewyjns I think personally, my main issue with the "Clara Who" argument is that for many (NOT ALL) it's completely ignoring the massive role and brilliant performances Capaldi is playing week after week - It's gotten to the point for some that it's almost an indulgence, almost that they are the ones putting most of the focus on Clara rather then the show itself
