@ClassicWhovian It's alright. It's basically just the separate boxsets put into a box. If you already own any of the separate series, just buy the ones you're missing. You're not missing out on anything. That said, it's good to have them all in one boxset.

8 might possibly be a teacher at Coal Hill or one of Clara's friends. Maybe she introduces Danny as her boyfriend and her friends get confused as last they checked she was dating a handsome fellow in a bow tie which prompts awkward questions from Danny? XD

Danny theory: He got injured in combat and his fellow soldiers left him behind believing he was dead. Danny then had to fight his way out and had to kill a defenceless woman (hence the ladykiller remarks and the killing someone who wasn't a soldier)in order to save himself.
I Must admit, I screamed during this clip. Very loudly. And anyone who knows me knows my screams are very loud and very high pitched. I hate spiders. This episode looks really scary. And I'm in the house alone next weekend when it's on. I don't know if that's good or bad.

Apollo 18 was terrible. Doctor Who will at least deliver an enjoyable story unlike Apollo 18.
Hello all! Been away for a few days. Went clubbing and to a comedy night with my best friends and then got dumped over Facebook by my boyfriend! So woo! Lots going on. To make this Doctor Who related:
If Murray Gold were to depart, which composer would you like to see take over?
I wouldn't mind Edmund Butt. Having already scored for DW with AAISAT, he's shown he has the talent so in my eyes, he's ideal. If not, David Arnold and Michael Price would be a great choice for the job if they're not too busy.

@doctorwhotvuk I'M NOT ALONE!
@stargazer0118 @The Genie @doctorwhotvuk ... Really? Quite a lot of Series 8 has ideas we haven't seen in ages. And a lot of it is really fresh and new. Unless I missed several episodes where we had balloons made out of human skin, the Doctor going inside a Dalek, the Doctor questioning his facts when meeting a supposedly fictional character, the Doctor having a nervous breakdown and then robbing a bank without remembering why he was robbing it.
@Calebxy Ten I think was the most approachable Doctor. You trusted him right away. He had a... trusting face. Eleven however will sense you're feeling off and hound you until he finds out what and how he can fix it. So I think it's a tie between them if I'm being honest.

@ClassicWhovian 13 Doctors certainly. As well as an iconic moment in the show's history, it's also one of the standout scenes in Day.
Stable time loop. They rob the bank because Karabraxos asked them too which then starts the chain of events leading Karabraxos to ask them to rob the bank. And you may have missed the scene at the start where the Doctor was holding a memory worm and thus forgot everything? He knew what he was robbing in the preparations but upon touching the worm he forgot.

@TARDlSkey I do have little personality things picked up from each Doctor. I have a little goofiness from 9, a habit of shouting randomly and rambling my thoughts to myself from 10, 11's basic childishness and a bit of 12's bluntness.

@stargazer0118 @The Administrator @AlessandroArsuffi @Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! I mean that a couple should get married and the two of them should be able to do whatever they want as a couple. But maybe some people want to be married but not spend a lot of time together? That's cool. Let them do that. Pretty much I'm all for a couple doing whatever they want in their marriage (as long as it's legal). It's their marriage. their lives. They can do what they like.

@stargazer0118 @The Administrator @AlessandroArsuffi @Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! Well as I said, tradition is the end of progress. I'm still of belief that if two people love each other, get married and then both decide to do something that isn't traditional, it's their marriage. They can do what they like
@stargazer0118 @The Administrator @Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! Well ok :)
@stargazer0118 @The Administrator @Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! Character development can be subtle. It doesn't have to be big "In your face soap opera big dramatic moment" changes. Look at Amy in The Eleventh Hour and then in The Angels Take Manhattan. You know she's changed. It's obvious. And it's because she's grown as a person. We don't need to see it. The obvious information is all there. And I'm sorry you're done with a rather pleasant discussion/friendly debate. I never saw this as an argument.
@stargazer0118 @The Administrator @AlessandroArsuffi @Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! Times are changing. I don't believe in traditional marriage. I believe in "Do the rings and then do what you want as a couple! It's your marriage!". The world is changing. Marriage will soon be seen as something you do if you want to with the person you love. Like re saying your vows. Not a necessity. Not needed. But the option is there. The fact we're in a world where 2 men or 2 women can get married as well as a man and a woman is amazing. And I can't wait to see how the world of marriage changes in the future. I really dislike how expectations are placed on people. For example, "you must be married and have kids by 40" is still a common belief. It forces people into things. Aren't we a better world by allowing people to love who they want to love, choose who they want to marry and then do what they want with that person? No "true family values" or "common sense" about it. I'm rather happy that one day I will be able to raise a child with a man who is my husband and no one will bat an eyelid or tell us it's wrong, immoral and not traditional. Tradition is the end of progress.
@stargazer0118 @Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! How? Steven Moffat created a character who has a history with the Doctor we never see. We then saw that history. At no point is River used as a s*x object or a way for Moffat to write his s*xual fantasies on screen like you imply. If you really think that, watch the Resident Evil films to see what it's really like when a writer creates a character purely to fulfil their s*xual fantasies (the lead actress is even the writer's wife!). River is and always has been a three dimensional and fully realised character with a long and tragic history with the man she loves. It's the ultimate love story. You love someone who knows you completely, but every time you see him, you know him more and he knows you less. It's tragic. And I love it.
@stargazer0118 @The Administrator @AlessandroArsuffi @Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! As Jeff Goldblum would say "Well... uh... there it is." The traditional marriage is dying (thank god). Now we live in a world where people can get married to who they want. I'm thankful I'm no longer expected or can be forced to marry a nice girl and can now marry a nice guy instead like I want. Marriage is just simply a way of showing love. Heck, if I was to marry the guy I was dating right now, we wouldn't be living together for years to come! It's just whatever people want to do. It's a way of showing you love each other and that's it. No longer are any expectations placed on marriage. No one even cares if a couple never gets married anymore!

@stargazer0118 @Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! Because... it did. She was kidnapped as a baby, raised to kill a man, then fell in love with said man and then spent years trying to find a way to see him again. Her entire life is a mess and revolves around the Doctor simply because of the Silence trying to kill him.
@stargazer0118 @AlessandroArsuffi @Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! They do really. Being married doesn't always mean "Live together, have kids". It's a sign of love. That's it. It's a "I love this person more than anyone else" message. People do whatever with their marriages. Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter live in separate houses next door to each other for example.
@stargazer0118 @AlessandroArsuffi @Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! It's not as if River had a prison sentence and then was a professor at a University was it? I mean... hoo boy. Her having a life outside of her romantic relationships! Can you imagine it! That would be silly!
@stargazer0118 @AlessandroArsuffi @TheWibblyLever @Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! She would rather watch the Universe die than kill him. She sacrificed her remaining lives for him. She didn't allow herself to mourn her parents just so he could. If that doesn't scream "I LOVE YOU!!!!" with a huge amount of compassion then I don't know what does.
@stargazer0118 @The Genie @The Administrator Again... comparing surface similarities.
@Beasts_a_Snarling Again... have you tried coming up with something 100% original? It's impossible. I often plan out an entire story and then realise it's basically a recycled Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings or Doctor Who story. But I work with what I have and tell that existing story in a way that feels fresh and unique and thus feels original.
@stargazer0118 @Beasts_a_Snarling I like it. It allows River to say goodbye to her Doctor, not a Doctor who has no idea who she is.
@stargazer0118 @Beasts_a_Snarling Yes... she wanted closure from her extended romantic relationship. Just like Rose and 10 had their beach talk for closure. You can only move on when you have closure. River was trying to give herself and the Doctor that closure so they could both move on. River to carry on living in the Library and the Doctor to carry on travelling and, hopefully, meet someone else.
@stargazer0118 Really? These are surface character traits. Doesn't make them the same. If you take the surface of my personality, sure, I'm very similar to my best friend. We're both gay, have short hair, have similar fashion, like the same things, jokey, tell a lot of risque jokes and are very compassionate people. Does that mean we're the same person? Course not! Our differences define us more than our similarities. Same applies to Moffat's female characters. They're all different. Sure, they may have similar fashion at times and a few of them may be a bit flirty... but who isn't nowadays? I'm flirty with all my friends, male or female. It's just common now. Let's look at River and Tasha for example. Similarities: Female, have a romantic relationship with the Doctor, flirt, can fly the TARDIS. Differences: River matures over time. Tasha doesn't. River is willing to sacrifice everything for the Doctor. Tasha isn't. River's psychopathic tendencies are due to years of brainwashing. Tasha is just like that anyway. I could go on but we'd be here all day. Simply put, because a character has surface similarities, it doesn't mean they're the same. And, tbh, it's very hard to create a character who is completely 100% original everytime. And to have the idea you can is silly. Every character will be similar to another character. Is Anow White the same character as Aurora because they get cursed, fall asleep and get kissed by a handsome prince? No! Every character ever created is similar to another character, either from the same property or something else. It's impossible to do anything that's 100% original because nearly every possible character has been created and nearly every possible story has been told. And as to the female villains, well... Evil Business woman is a massive Trope/Cliche in fiction. It's not unique to Doctor Who. Many shows and films have evil business women. Just like many superheroes have a leather catsuit wearing enemy who is romantically interested in them (Catwoman for Batman, Black Cat for Spider-Man etc.). It's just cliches. To complain about Cliches is pointless. Look on TV Tropes. Nearly everything has used a popular cliche at some point. And Miss Delphox and Miss Kizlet are compeltely different characters. Delphox is 100% serious, doesn't joke and just wants to capture the Doctor with minimal fuss while Kizlet is a bit playful and enjoys taunting the Doctor, even seemingly enjoying the extended game of cat and mouse across London. Again, on the surface similar, but look past the surface and they're very very different.
@Mark McCullough Maybe a cure for my (multiple) mental health issues? If such a cure exists in the future?

@Mark McCullough I don't know actually. There's nothing I obviously need or desire. But no doubt it'd be something that I'd realise I want more than anything. Possibly money? Or some way to fame?
It's interesting what they've done this series so far. Because Capaldi is so wildly different to all the previous New Who Doctors, they've taken the first 6 episodes to remind us it's still the same show. It's all returning writers (Moffat, Ford, Gatiss, Thompson, Roberts), returning characters (Paternoster), returning monsters (Clockwork Droids, Daleks) and the two "comedy" episodes. The only episodes to take a lot of risks with Capaldi's Doctor have been episodes penned by Moffat (ITD was co written so it counts). The second half of the series (now the audience is settled in) has new writers and the more experimental, scarier, darker and potentially controversial episodes.

@TardisBoy I agree with every word. Excellent novel.
7/10. Good. But not great. A few things holding it back. Maybe another few drafts and it'd have been perfect.

Into The Dalek 10/10
Robot of Sherwood 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.
