Does there have to be a reason?
An amazing trilogy. Perhaps the best-
*notices Peter Jackson glaring*
Ok. ONE of the best trilogies ever made.

Now, there's no reason why Shona can't do a Donna. An appearance in a Christmas special then beocoming a companion a year later. We could have Series 9 with 12 and Clara and then Series 10 with 12 and Shona. It could even be a similar idea to the 10/Donna reunion with Shona actually searching for the Doctor. Or even the other way around.

@budnp2013 @Captain Administrator is Ichabod Crane @Edoe But that's not how New Who works. Moffat will be writing the finale. There's no doubts of that.

@budnp2013 @Captain Administrator is Ichabod Crane @Edoe Moffat is writing the finale. He's confirmed he has the cliffhanger for episode 11 planned. Also... why wouldn't he be writing the finale?
@Edoe @Captain Administrator is Ichabod Crane Plus people might finally take him seriously as a possible showrunner :P
@Edoe @Captain Administrator is Ichabod Crane I think Gatiss has one of those slots certainly. As to who takes the other... *shrugs* could be anyone.
So Series 9 looks like this so far:
9.1 The Magician's Apprentice by Steven Moffat
9.2 The Witch's Familiar by Steven Moffat
9.3 TBC by Toby Whithouse
9.4 TBC by Toby Whithouse
9.5 TBC by TBC
9.6 TBC by TBC
9.7 TBC by TBC
9.8 TBC by TBC
9.9 TBC by TBC
9.10 TBC by TBC
9.11 TBC by Steven Moffat (?)
9.12 TBC by Steven Moffat
2015 Christmas Special by Steven Moffat
Confirmed writers with unconfirmed episodes: Catherine Tregenna
Unconfirmed but rumoured/possible writers: Mark Gatiss, Steve Thompson, Tom MacRae, Chris Chibnall, Paul Cornell, Jamie Mathieson, Peter Harness, Gareth Roberts and every other New Who writer.
Very very VERY happy about this! :D
@Mr Meglos So... it's wrong to advertise the basic plot of the episode? The episode was never marketed as a game changer. Just as an episode quest starring a woman who claims to be the Doctor's daughter. Jenny's death adds the perfect emotional punch the episode needs and while her return is forced, it leaves her character open for spin-offs/future returns.

@Mr Meglos @Malohkeh, not a member of any acronyms @Antee991166 @DaftDalek is the Aphex Twin Doctor It makes a lot of sense. They mention it's lasted generations and a war on this scale churning out soldiers so quickly can lose whole generations in a matter of hours.
@DevonWaslusky But surely if this is successful then BBC will be more encouraged to make a TV Series?

@Malohkeh, not a member of any acronyms @Captain Administrator is Ichabod Crane Paternoster gang! Torchwood! Jenny! So many audios! :D
So this means Big Finish has the New Who license! :D :D :D :D
Which probably means 9th, 10th and 11th Doctor audios are on the way! :D
The Bechdel test is, IMO, a very unfair system. It takes the conversations but not the context. Yes Amy rarely doesn't talk about the Doctor, but when she does it's not in a romantic way. It's because he's a very prominent figure in her life. It'd be exactly the same if the Doctor was female. So that's why I, personally, don't like the bechdel test. As for very few WOC, well I think the DW team have made it clear they cast for talent not looks. I'm sure if a WOC actress had auditioned for any of the companions and was the best she'd have got the part. And as for few female writers, Moffat has said he has asked many female writers but they either turn him down or are too busy. But it's a fascinating article on a touchy subject nonetheless

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.

2 months, 3 weeks 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.

@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.
3 months 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.
3 months ago on Rate & Discuss Last Christmas
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
