Imagine the humour of the two Jennys meeting! You can imagine the jokes.
VASTRA: The other Jenny!
DOCTOR: Not you! The blonde one! You should wear labels! Jenny 1 and Jenny 2!
JENNYS: Which one's Jenny 1? I am! No! I am! Doctor/Vastra!
1 day ago on Jenny: A Future Companion
I'd quite like the next companion to have a military background. Perhaps not a soldier (as interesting as it would be), but maybe someone with a military background, like someone with a relative who's in the army. Perhaps even someone who has a relative who died in the army. The companion could then be there to call the Doctor out on his dislike of soldiers and perhaps change his perspective. It's already hinted his perspective is changing after Danny's sacrifice, so maybe a companion with a military background could help push that character development to completion?

I respect your opinions, but I don't agree with them. I find Missy to be a better Master than Simm, simply because Missy is scary. Missy is a cold blooded killer who wants to bring the Doctor to her level. Like the Joker in the Dark Knight. She wants to prove that the Doctor's "morality" means nothing and that underneath it all they're exactly the same. And the Master's relationship with the Doctor has always been flirty. I mean, Simm and Tennant were moments away from kissing several times :P

Ahem. This thing on? *taps microphone and eardrums explode from feedback*
Ah. Well that's that.
Eeesh I feel stupid.
I'm sorry to all about yesterday.
I've had some time to think things over and yes, I was a git.
The problem was is that I'm going through a very tough time and I was already a bit stressed and I... err... kind of exploded. It's happened to all of us. It's happened to everyone. It's just that I really felt like everyone was on at me. I'm a teensy bit paranoid like that.
It's made me realise I rely on this place too much. I take it and the people here for granted and that's a bit silly.
Also today I realised how lonely I was. I had no one to talk to.
So I'm back on WD. Yay.
Don't know if I'm coming back onto chat yet. I kind of deleted my account in a rage. Oops.
So... errr... yeah. I'm back. Now who left the stove on while I was out?

@The Genie @The Administrator is Thorin Oakenshield! @ClaraOswaldIsAwesome Am I? Ok. Oh wait... bye. I'm sorry it has to be on such bad terms, but the fact is you've all made it clear you all think very lowly of me and such I can't be here because it's not good for my mental state.
@ClaraOswaldIsAwesome I'm not saying everyone is wrong... and I don't need to change. The fact is... oh why do I bother. It's clear you've all made up your minds about me and I just can't be bothered going around in circles anymore. Well done guys. I've had it. I've really had it. I can't be here anymore because it's just... eurgh.
@The Count @The Administrator is Thorin Oakenshield! @The Genie Count, I know where you're all coming from... but I really feel that no one is getting where I'm coming from. The fact I'm being told I'm pity hunting and the like really bugs me. And the fact there's stuff that's blatantly not true. Sexual talk is never instigated by myself. It's always brought up by other people. And it's a lot of stuff building up. MSW for example. It's become something I really didn't want it to become and I just feel so drained emotionally when i think about it. It's not what I wanted. At all. What it is, well, it's something I really hate.
@The Genie @The Administrator is Thorin Oakenshield! I'm not a child. You don't have to treat me like one.
And please stop bringing up my personal life on here. I've asked you to stop several times now and you've ignored me.
This isn't just about my personal life. It's several things boiling into one. All to do with this community. And I don't constantly pity hunt. Don't make such a judgement about me like that.
I do help people with their problems... but I don't follow every but of advice because... surprise... not all of it is helpful. I'm not talking to you anymore unless you show you've took on what I said because it's just clear you're not getting what I'm saying and frankly forming your own opinions.
@The Genie @The Administrator is Thorin Oakenshield! I don't even go into detail. In fact, most detail is brought up by other people. People bringing up stuff I post on Tumblr for example. And you're making really massive judgements there. All of that... is wrong.
You don't know me as well as you think.
It's not about satisfaction.
It's about talking about something that's putting me through a confusing time that I need to talk to people about... WITHOUT being treated the way I'm treated. I don't post every detail of my life. In fact there's tons you don't know about me. I don't post sexual details. In fact, the sexual stuff only comes up when people mention stuff I post on Tumblr... so... there.
You've really insulted me here. If that's what you think of me, then I better hold my tongue before I say things about you that I could regret. I'm going through a very confusing, emotional time... and surprise... all I want is support. Emotional support. People just to show that they care. I don't need advice or you telling me how to live my life, I just need someone to say "It's alright Admin. Things are gonna get better. Just go do something to distract yourself" or something similar. I don't hunt for sympathy at all. And the fact is... you're ignoring that people, you included, are making fun of me and my personal life... something you don't really do at all unless if you think little of that person.
I just... eurgh. I better stop typing before I throw my laptop away in disgust.
@The Genie @The Administrator is Thorin Oakenshield! It has nothing to do with that. Please don't bring up my personal life here.
I don't like the way I'm treated. I don't like the fact that everyone just seems to get the wrong idea of what I'm saying. I don't like how me and my personal life are turned into jokes. I don't like how my feelings are hurt and everyone ignores it. I don't like that you say I ignore help... yet you don't realise I'm asked to do stuff I can't do. I'm going through a very confusing period... and I'm not receiving the help and support I should. Instead I'm being judged and pretty much treated horribly. And I just hate the way everything is going. And I really hate the attitude people are having towards me. And, like I said, it's hurting my feelings and I won't stay if that keeps happening. And please... don't make this into an argument and ignore my personal feelings on matters. And that goes for everyone. it keeps happening and I'm tired of it.

Right. Confession/rant time.
I've been part of this community for three years. It's a long time. And I thought I was a trusted and well liked member of the community.
Now I don't.
Now I think I'm hated, an annoyance and only tolerated. And it hurts. It really does. People I once called friends have been clearly irritated with me. People keep pushing my buttons trying to goad me into arguments. People make judgements on me all the time. I'm sick of it.
I won't apologise for anything, because then I'd be apologising for being myself which is something you should never do. And I won't change my actions...because then I wouldn't be me I'd be me pretending to be someone I'm not which in the long run is bad. I don't want to lie to people.
And it's the same suspects again and again and again... it really bugs me it does. This community, if it is to survive, has to change. No. Getting new people will not fix that. It's the people themselves who need to change. I think we all need to take a long hard think about how we treat people in this community and realise that we're not all just avatars, we're all real people with real thoughts and real feelings and that actually some of the stuff we're saying is quite hurtful. Things people have said to me have hurt me, upset me and, on more than one occasion, driven me to tears. And it's really not making me feel like a respected member of this community. Sure, you're all gonna jump in with some defense I suppose, but I really think it has to be hammered home that we're all people. And we all have feelings. And mine are hurt on a regular basis and when I bring it up I'm ignored. This is a huge problem. Me and my personal life are continually made the butt of many jokes. And none of you care that my feelings are hurt every time you all joke about or make jokes about it. And when I being it up I'm ignored or, on some occasions, had my response made into another joke. It's hurtful and frankly, mean.
I don't feel respected. I feel like I'm only tolerated. And...I really don't want to be around people who don't respect me for who I am. So... yeah... you're all really on your last chance guys. Because if this keeps happening... then I won't be here. Simple fact. My life is stressful enough without extra stress from the way I'm treated here.
So yeah... rant over...

@Beasts_a_Snarling has joined the Happiness Patrol! Again, it's hard to do anything original. And the masses expect the Daleks to go on a killing spree when they appear and that's what we get. Besides, Into The Dalek saw a Dalek questioning itself which has only happened a few times and it was done pretty uniquely. And can you say any other episode has seen the Doctor shrunk and put inside a Dalek?
1 week, 1 day ago on Moffat: Daleks Are Not A Contractual Obligation
@Beasts_a_Snarling has joined the Happiness Patrol! Have you tried writing a Sci-Fi story? It's impossible. I've scrapped several stories because they were too similar to other stories no matter how original I thought they were. It's impossible to be original.
@Beasts_a_Snarling has joined the Happiness Patrol! You'll be surprised how many causal viewers are watching and are able to follow the plots. Fan service would be Moffat writing in characters like Rose and the Rani for no reason, not the little nods like we get now. Moffat simply responds to fan complaints because interviewers ask him about them so he gives his thoughts.
@Beasts_a_Snarling has joined the Happiness Patrol! Well if the popularity of the Daleks says anything, kids will be happy for more Dalek episodes.
@Beasts_a_Snarling has joined the Happiness Patrol! If the writers write Doctor Who trying to please everyone, the show will suck. If they write like they are, to appease their target audience which are families, the show will be great.
@Beasts_a_Snarling has joined the Happiness Patrol! A lot of kids I've spoken to are just happy the Daleks are in it. XD
@Beasts_a_Snarling has joined the Happiness Patrol! I liked both of those XD
@Beasts_a_Snarling has joined the Happiness Patrol! But the simple matter is, who cares what the monster does? We know what the Daleks do. But if the episode is entertaining, then does it really matter they keep being used? For you the gap between Dalek stories may be too short, but for kids it's massive! As a kid I thought the gap between Doomsday and Daleks in Manhattan was massive even though it was only 5 episodes. Imagine how they felt with the gap between Asylum of the Daleks and Day of the Doctor! Plus the Daleks always provide a ratings boost which is always a plus.
@Beasts_a_Snarling has joined the Happiness Patrol! But don't we know what every monster does? Kill people?
@Mark McCullough :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
@Beasts_a_Snarling has joined the Happiness Patrol! No it won't. Because it's a TV show. We know the Doctor will defeat the monster at the end of every episode. And you know what, I don't care if there's no surprise. Who cares if the Daleks are back? Is the episode good and have they been used well? If so, then there's no point complaining.
@Scribey @The Administrator is Thorin Oakenshield! @Edoe Who said anything about terrorism? We could see the Daleks be ruthless and horrible rulers. There's already a Dalek Prime Minister...
@Beasts_a_Snarling has joined the Happiness Patrol! Well... it's pretty hard to do anything in Sci-Fi that's original. It's downright impossible in fact. Nearly every idea has been done in some way. The Monster's originality shouldn't matter. It should only matter if the episode is entertaining.
@Push_to_88mph Correction. YOU have not found them scary. Unless if you speak for EVERY child who has ever watched Doctor Who.
@Edoe @Scribey Perhaps the Daleks should change to match the fears of a modern audience?
