@dragonsfyre Actually, Moffat revealed that 2 parters actually cost MORE than single parters. Don't ask me how, but that's the word from the man himself.

PART 3: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE FLEETS
An epic battle in space looms. Clara must choose her side. Lots of stuff happens.
@supermoff @Captain Administrator is Ichabod Crane And extended editions too
It has to be the Foretold. Possibly the best designed monster yet.

One thing we need now...
PETER JACKSON DIRECTING THE FINALE!
@supermoff @Captain Administrator is Ichabod Crane I'm getting good vibes about this series.
@Sontaran17 @Captain Administrator is Ichabod Crane And Gatiss too probably! We just need confirmation of which episodes they're writing.
So Series 9 is looking like this so far:
9.1: The Magician's Apprentice by Steven Moffat
9.2 by TBC
9.3 by Toby Whithouse
9.4 by Toby Whithouse
9.5 by TBC
9.6 by TBC
9.7 by TBC
9.8 by TBC
9.9 by TBC
9.10 by TBC
9.11 by Steven Moffat
9.12 by Steven Moffat
9.X by Steven Moffat (probably).
Now all we need is a little Energon... and a lot of luck.
What I meant to say was all we need now is Tom MacRae, Mark Gatiss, Simon Nye, Chris Chibnall and Jamie Mathieson and we'll have my ideal Series 9!
Clockwork Droids. Because they felt extremely fresh and new, even though they were old monsters.

I'm overjoyed. Clara is my favourite companion behind Amy and I'm excited to see her come back! :D
@JamieJones723 @Captain Administrator I know... we just lost an epsiode which added more money into the budget.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Being Human Director for Series 9
@Planet of the Christmas Pudding Brains We already have less episodes. We've lost a whole episode. We have 12 instead of 13. And the budget has been raised after Day I believe.
@Doctavarium For example, The End of Time Parts 1 and 2 seem very rushed at times, despite being 60 minutes and 75 minutes in length. And The Next Doctor as well.
@Doctavarium I wouldn't say episodes are "rushed". 60 minutes episodes is great, but if an episode seems rushed then it's down to poor pacing that';s all.
Well considering Series 9 starts filming in January, we can expect a Shona confirmation or denial in the next week or two.
4 weeks ago on Last Christmas Review (Part 2): Questions, Questions
@Malohkeh It's Bilbo's story of another person's story. Bilbo is not the hero. He does not become king of Erebor or Dale, he does not kill Smaug or Bolg, he's just our viewpoint to Thorin and Bard's story, although it is made clear that without Bilbo their story would not be possible. It's the equivalent of Gandalf telling his version of events and revealing none of it was possible without him.
1 month ago on Clara’s Fate & Series 9 (Spoilers)
@Huknar @Captain Administrator The show is about the people who travel with the Doctor. Sure the Doctor is in every episode, but he's never the protagonist. Series 1 and 2 were Rose's story, Series 3 was Martha's, Series 4 was Donna's, Series 5 6 & 7A were Amy's and Series 7B 8 and 9 are Clara's. Just like the early seasons were Ian, Barbara and Susan's story. Just because the Doctor is the title character, it's not about him. "The Hobbit" isn't about Bilbo, "Lord of the Rings" isn't about Sauron, "Godzilla" isn't about Godzilla, "Beetlejuice" isn't about Beetlejuice etc. Just because their name is in the title, they are not the protagonist. Again, the show is about the people who travel with the Doctor, not the Doctor himself. The show is called "Doctor Who" for this reason, he is not our protagonist. He's a mystery. He's the equivalent of Gandalf or Merlin, a mysterious figure who helps our protagonist grow into a better person.
@Huknar @Captain Administrator But again, Clara is the protagonist! The Doctor isn't! We're seeing this through HER eyes, not the Doctor's. When she leaves, her story will be done and the show will become the next companion's story. The show is not about the Doctor. it's about the people who travel with him.
@Huknar Well, tbf, it's not just with Clara the show has focused on the companion more. Series 1 and 2 were the "Rose Tyler" show if the focus on Clara makes it "Clara Who". The companion is our viewpoint character, they are our viewpoint. Yes the Doctor is the hero, but he is not the protagonist. Clara is. We're seeing the story through her eyes. Take The Hobbit for example, that story's heroes are Thorin and Bard, Bilbo is not the hero he is the protagonist, the character we view the story through the eyes of. Same for Clara.
Because less people are watching live.

I don't know. I loved Rose after 2 series but grew to dislike her after 3. Opinions change. I really only say "I loved that character" once they've left.

Being taken the wrong way XD I just don't like seeing people moan about characters without giving them the chance. By all means say you dislike Clara...ONCE she's left the show.
People are moaning about happy endings? On Christmas? Scrooges. You should all be visited by ghosts of Clara's past (Clara Oswin Oswald) present (Clara Oswald) and future (Oswin Oswald) and forced to discover love for this character.
Joking aside (or am I?), the overwhelming negativity for Clara brings me down. It really does. She's such a wonderful character.
10/10. Loved it. Just magical. An excellent ending to Series 8 and an even more excellent start to Series 9!
Someone needs to research The Impossible Astronaut. :P

ooo... what if this is a companion introduction episode and the companion is from the past and knows the Doctor as "Magician" not Doctor? Like how Ace called the Doctor "Professor", the new companion could call the Doctor "Magician"! That's if Clara leaves.
Also, Apprentice is another term for "assistant" and the Doctor's companions are sometimes called "assistants". So if Magician refers to the Doctor and Apprentice refers to the companion, the title is literally "The Doctor's Companion".

Well, my idea to makr the 10th Anniversary of New Who was to bring back companions instead of Doctors. One companion for each Doctor. Jack for 9, Martha for 10, River for 11 and then 12 and his companion.

@Tardis Boy I still think the Doctor finding Gallifrey will be Moffat's final episode as showrunner. It just makes sense to me.
@Chris502 Because referencing a serial from the 70s a lot could alienate viewers?
@Chris502 @Captain Administrator @The Genie, Agent of JACKIE Yes. Partly basing it on that :P
