@doctorwhotvuk Interesting. So Into the Dalek has a much faster pace then? Should quiet the naysayers moaning about Deep Breath being too slow

@doctorwhotvuk Would you say it was better or worse than Deep Breath? Or is it more the same.

I'm really happy this was included. I've recently come out to my younger brother and stuff like this can only help him accept it.

@TheOncomingHurricane @Oodkind Yep. No a choice. In fact I think it's rather offensive to suggest it is.
@Polyphase How is kissing soapy? Are characters not allowed to show emotion? Are they limited to just cardboard cutouts who's only purpose is to serve the plot?
@Deus_Ex_Machina Ahem. Homosexuality is ok. It's present in most species on the planet and has been part of human culture for centuries. The Romans even had a legion made up entirely of gay men. So to say it's not ok is wrong... because it is.
Excellent article! As a gay man myself, I loved the kiss scene between Vastra and Jenny. It's important we get more representation. And I sometimes think Moffat should take the next step and have the next companion be an LGBTQ+ Character. It's needed/ And as a very camp gay man (I hereby apologise to all gay men for being a walking talking stereotype :P), I often receive some abuse for my sexuality. Having stuff like this in Doctor Who helps create a more accepting generation and will only help those who identify as LGBTQ+ in the future.

@Blanchard Great theory! I have no doubt that "Heaven/Paradise" is connected to Gallifrey somehow. It could actually be Gallifrey!
Building on that, what if it's a translation issue, and Gallifrey literally translates into Heaven/Paradise?

@TardisBoy Going on from this, what if all the adventures in Series 8 have been engineered by the Time Lords as final "tests" for the Doctor to see if he's ready?

@TardisBoy You know this would not surprise me. Engineering their escape by manipulating the Doctor into the man who can save them.
@TardisBoy Every loose end... every coincidence... it's all part of a master plan...
With the conversation below, I just realised how much of the Doctor's life relies on coincidence. If just one thing didn't happen, the Doctor may not even be here. If he didn't crash in Amy's garden, he wouldn't have lost her to the Angels, he wouldn't have gone to sulk in Victorian London, he wouldn't have walked down that specific alley and met Clara, he wouldn't have gone to find her, he wouldn't have saved Gallifrey at her urging and he would have died at Trenzalore.
So much of the biggest events of the Doctor's life in Moffat's era hinge on him meeting Amy and Clara by chance. If those hadn't happened... I dread to think.
So what if these chance coincidences were engineered on purpose to shape the Doctor into a specific person to fulfill a specific purpose? What if, now as the 12th Doctor, the Doctor has finally reached the point in his life when he's ready for that purpose and now those forces who shaped him are ready to interfere once again...
@Mark McCullough @The Administrator Well I always did think it was a bit of a coincidence that the TARDIS crashed in the garden of the young girl with a time crack in her wall who also happened to be the mother of River Song...
If that was engineered on purpose...
@TardisBoy Perhaps O.O
@TardisBoy Engineering the Doctor since birth to be the right man for a specific task perhaps?
@Antee991166 @The Administrator It's because fans didn't take to them and moaned instead of giving them a chance. So now they're just sitting around to be wheeled out every once in a while.

@Mark McCullough What if Missy has been playing a long game? Getting everything in the right place at the right time? What we thought were coincidences were in fact her design. She could have been doing this for all the Doctor's life. Influencing things so companions like Rose, Martha etc. were in the right place at the right time, engineering the meeting between Clara's parents, making sure the TARDIS crashed in Amelia Pond's garden instead of elsewhere, having a convenient Zygon invasion paralleling the events in the Time War just as the Doctor was revisiting that day and even Tasha Lem being able to pilot the TARDIS to be in the right place at the right time to get the Doctor more regenerations or even being the one who allowed the 10th and 11th Doctor into the Time War to save Gallifrey and not the Moment like we thought.
If this is what happens, this could be Moffat's most complex, yet satisfying arc yet.
I can't help but think that a damaged Paradigm Drone Dalek would look so much better there. Something so big and imposing brought to ruin. It would have been a striking image. But this works just as well.
Daleks! Cool premise! Phil Ford! Steven Moffat AND Phil Ford working together! First appearance of Danny! So much to get excited for!
@TheBiPunishment I hope not. I don't want another mystery spanning several series.

I want more Clara/Strax scenes. Their chemistry is spot on.
@Chris502 She was thinking of 10 and 11. Clara ships the Doctor with himself ;-)
@Chris502 @Esterath Maybe he really liked that hat?

@yoshfiction @The Administrator No problem :-)
I made some unreleased music from Deep Breath. This will probably be as good as we'll get until the Series 8 Soundtrack. http ://www.mediafire.com/download/8m2e5989xdop31g/Deep+Breath.zip
"And this is your patient" Pre titles scene certainly.

Excellent article! However I have to disagree with the idea of Strax meeting other Sontarans and having his loyalty tested. As A Good Man Goes To War explains, Strax is disgraced and became a nurse thanks to the interference of the Doctor. The way I took it, the Sontarans were going to execute Strax but the Doctor stepped in and negotiated Strax becoming a Nurse as penance, thus explaining Strax being in the Doctor's debt in A Good Man Goes To War. I really don't think Strax has anything left with the Sontarans. Strax is probably dead to them and they would not see any tactical value in brining him back while Strax has found a new home and a family with Vastra and Jenny which I don't think he'll throw away.

@Blanchard I also loved 12's plan. Abandon Clara so she can get the info he needs from Half-Face. But of course, he couldn't tell her. Half-Face had to believe he'd left her, so the emotions from Clara had to be genuine, which they were allowing the Doctor to get what he needed.
@Blanchard When she held her hand out my only thought was "He's not there is he?"
@Calebxy @TardisBoy As someone who studied CGI in College, I can tell you Series 8 is an improvement over Series 5. Milk is tons better than The Mill.
@doctorwhotvuk It is very Hans Zimmer isn't it? I've started a little rescore of Deep Breath and I find myself gravitating to Hans Zimmer music (specifically his Sherlock Holmes soundtracks). There's something about Deep Breath that screams for a Hans Zimmer ish score and I think Murray picked up on that.
@007 Bond 50 Yep! That location has been used a few times over the course of Doctor Who and it's Spin Offs. Keep an eye out for it in The Sarah Jane Adventures!

Excellent article Sam! Some interesting theories presented here! I'm looking forward to seeing how the "Missy" story plays out in future episodes. Regardless of the answer, I'm sure Moffat will surprise us!
Fantastic article Mark! And all wonderful choices! But my favourite moment has to be "We will melt him with acid!" XD

Anyone who has anything bad to say about Capaldi will have to deal with me. And Capaldi's attack eyebrows. You have been warned.
I can just imagine the 11th Doctor after phoning Clara.
