7/10. Good. But not great. A few things holding it back. Maybe another few drafts and it'd have been perfect.

Deep Breath 10/10

@Djornad @Salyavin If it's any help, the episode of Supernatural she directed I think was very well directed. Considering Supernatural is similar to Doctor Who (two main characters arrive in a new location every week that's being menaced by a monster) it's a good sign.

@Planet of the Deaf There has been location filming, but it's all been very hush hush. I think because the show is airing all the attention is there allowing the filming team to get on in peace. For the moment.

@The Count @The Administrator Don't taunt me with things that will never happen...
@The Count @The Administrator I don't care what it is as long as it's something!
I really hope Silva just make their plans for soundtracks clearer. We're still waiting on the 50th collectors soundtrack to be released after numerous delays, we're waiting on a Day/Time soundtrack and soon on a Series 8 soundtrack. The last new Who music release was An Adventure In Space And Time and that was back in March. I really hope this 50th collection delays aren't holding back other New Who music releases like it's been rumoured. If so, that's rubbish. I'm praying we'll get a Day/Time soundtrack before Christmas at least although I'm not getting too hopeful, considering we had to wait 2 years for the music from TDTWATW. But a Day/Time release before Christmas would be an excellent stocking filler before releasing the Series 8 Soundtrack early next year (probably with music from this years Christmas Special as well).
I just hope Silva would be clearer about their plans. Just a simple tweet saying "New Who fans are in for a treat this Christmas..." or something. Just so we have some idea. It just annoys me.
@TardisBoy Same with me. If my future bf doesn't like them, then tough.
I've got 2 DW posters, a Muppets Poster, A Captain America poster, A Maleficent Poster, A Hobbit poster and a Guardians of the Galaxy poster. And then I've got two Game of Thrones Pop Vinyl figures, the Harry Potter Wizard's Collection, The Doctor Who Series 1-7 Blu-Ray collection, Three Dalek figures and all my teddies XD

I watched Oliver and Company last night. If you don't know what it is, it's basically Disney's very loose adaptation of Oliver Twist with the location changed to New York and most of the major characters (Oliver and Dodger for example) now being animals. And... it's good. Very good. Sure, it's very VERY 80's. It's very much a product of it's time and some elements of the film now seem dated, but it still has a sort of timeless quality to it, although maybe that's the Dickens showing through.
Despite it's basic premise, the film is actually pretty dark. The film's villain Mr Sykes (in this version re-imagined as a loan shark/mob boss) is actually pretty terrifying. He may not turn into a huge dragon, be an evil sorcerer or even have horns and voiced by John Hurt, but he's scary nevertheless. His determination to get his money back from Fagin and (later on in the film) kidnap Oliver's new owner Jenny and hold her ransom to her wealthy parents (and even then it's implied that he'll find another way to make money off her if her parents don't pay up in time) is downright terrifying. I mean... there's scary and there's downright terrifying and Sykes falls into the latter category. How many Disney villains have a casual phone conversation about the best way to kill someone and then go on to chase a terrified child across New York? I mean... jeez. This guy is just scary.
But even with the dark stuff, the film is also pretty light with some good humour and some catchy songs (even if they are all very 80s). It's rounded out by a colourful supporting cast. It's also the only film where Bette Midler sings a song and then starts backing the rest of it towards the end.
So if you get the chance, give it a watch. It's not the best film in the Disney Canon, but it's an enjoyable experience nonetheless.

Every episode from Episode 7 onwards just seems perfect. I'm on the fence about Time Heist and The Caretaker simply due to Thompson and Roberts and their previous contributions to DW. But Kill The Moon onwards just seems perfect!

Helena Bonham Carter is a magnificent actress. There's times in the Gringotts sequence I doubt it's her and think it's just Emma Watson in makeup! It's really brilliant!
@The Genie @The Administrator A few dark corners of the internet. And tell him that I think Griphook is his best HP performance. He's really menacing and a bit scary!
People who say Warwick Davis can't act have not seen him as Griphook in Harry Potter. Magnificent performance.
Oh my. Kill The Moon and Mummy sound incredible.

@The Genie Well let's see there's Missy is the Master, Missy is the Rani, Missy is Clara, Missy is the Moment, Missy is Rose, Missy is Jenny, Missy is Sarah Jane, Missy is Omega... pretty much every major character in the show's 50 year history is theorised to be her somewhere.
@stargazer0118 @TheBiPunishment He can't. It'd change the entire future. Who knows what would happen?
@stargazer0118 @The Administrator Well I don't see his points as valid. But maybe that's just me. And it really doesn't matter how experienced a writer is for their opinion to be valid. A famous film reviewer gave the horror film The Cabin In The Woods a bad review, but then it was revealed he actually hadn't even SEEN the film before he reviewed it. So yeah... experience isn't everything. I love reviewing. I do it all the time. I review films all the time for Cult Fix. I try and take something as it is, not what I'd like it to be. And if that means putting my fandoms to one side, so be it. It helped me accurately judge Transformers 4 at least.
@TheBiPunishment One of my friends is a huge fan of it. She keeps trying to get me to watch it. I told her I'd watch it if she started watching Doctor Who. No luck there.

@stargazer0118 @MrJimiTheFish @TardisBoy Actually it sums up the relationship I'm in now pretty well. We're both really awkward, he keeps saying the wrong thing, I say the wrong thing too. But we really like each other so we're trying to make it work. In fact he sent me a text after Listen saying "OMG this is so us! xxxx".
So yeah. I really like it and the relationship feels very real.
@stargazer0118 @TheBiPunishment I'd say he's a very good actor. I've been in that awkward situation where you say the wrong thing enough times and he's doing an excellent job at capturing that.
Haven't updated this in weeks! But here goes!
Time for Part 2
@TheForgotten Mostly film and TV Soundtracks. Some Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Ed Sheeran.
@stargazer0118 Well I disagree with this review. Quite a lot of it. It seems to be reaching for complaints quite a lot.
The Silents aren't exactly perfect hiders. The Doctor was looking for creatures evolved to be perfect hiders. The Silents were engineered and thus don't count.
As to the Doctor insulting Clara, haven't we all insulted our best friends from time to time? Just yesterday I was having cocktails with my best friend. He ordered two whole pitchers for us to share. I called him an alcoholic. Did I mean it? No. It was just a joke and he knew that. In fact he laughed really loudly. It was awkward when people stared.
Clara admiring herself... well if I had the chance I would admire myself. And Clara isn't the only time travelling heroine to admire herself from the back. Here's a quote from perhaps the most successful Time Travel movie of the past decade:
HERMIONE: Is that really what my hair looks like from the back?
It's a running joke in Time Travel. Nothing to make of it.
At no point are we told that the TARDIS cannot travel to Gallifrey in it's past. In fact, its been suggested it is possible. Remember when Amy mentioned the Doctor took her to Arcadia in Vincent and the Doctor? The way I see it, only the Time War is Time Locked. Not Gallifrey itself.
It annoys me when people say Moffat is not allowed to dabble in the wider Mythos of Doctor Who. What's the point of being in charge of a show like Doctor Who if you can't even do anything with it? If you're forced to just play it safe? By taking risks and being controversial, Moffat's era will stand out even more. And even then, the scene did not go against anything we already knew. We knew the Doctor was a lonely child already. And anyway, it's nice to have some context as to why the Doctor chose that particular barn in Day of the Doctor.
And the monster is meant to be ambiguous. We'll never know what was under Danny;s sheet.
@edoe101 @The Administrator A bit yeah.
