Here we go again...
@TardisBoy I agree, I think it's a strong series. The quality seems to have improved a lot, with the good episodes being fantastic and the bad ones being not that bad. At the moment, it's just bordering under series 4/ series 5 standard.

What am I doing with my life? Playing a CBBC game… oh well.
It’s surprisingly fun. I mean, it’s not really fun, but it’s nice to play when
you’ve got nothing else to do. I get to “stun” Cybermen (because extermination
isn’t appropriate for CBBC or something like that) which is quite enjoyable. Also,
these bits where you have to do this programming sort of thing are quite
annoying and feel really forced – then again, I expect children love them, and
I guess it’s the whole point of the game. I don’t really think it was ready to
be released, because I’ve found loads of bugs – for example, when you have to
escape the Cybermen, they spawn at a really, insanely stupid rate. It’s as if
the BBC thought “This is a kids game, let’s put little effort in to it”
But I’m reminded of The Last Dalek when I play this. Anyone remember that game?
I know it was on the official Doctor Who website and this is on the CBBC one,
but I expect The Last Dalek was mostly played by kids. I certainly played it.
It seems like they’re playing it really safe and making sure they can’t be sued
for a game containing violent content on a kid’s site or something. It makes me
feel quite happy, though, that kids will remember this game like I remember The
Last Dalek. I dunno why. And if you haven’t played the last Dalek, play it! It’s
not on the main site anymore but you can still google it and it’s on loads of
other game sites. I’ve linked one below.

@Scribey A small confession to make... I haven't seen much of Five. However... there are a lot of moments in The Caves of Androzani when he is at his best. I think that the episode is overrated, but I can't deny that Peter Davison is phenomenal in it.

I do very much agree with a lot of what you say. I think Clara seems to be in focus a lot, and I sort of wish Clara would take a back seat, yet I love her character development. A great article :)
Also, something else I noticed... when you talk about Clara's flaws "she’s an egotistical brat, she’s judgmental, condescending, and prone to lies" Rose had flaws, and people frequently complain about her, yet not many people complain about Clara's flaws. Just puttin' that out there.

Absolutely shocked at the loss of Lynda Bellingham. Couldn't believe it when I read about it. Such a shame she never saw Christmas :(
Something really annoying happened when I was watching Flatline last night. I had accidentally turned on the Audio Description, and at the beginning, when the guy disappeared and the phone dropped, the TV went "the telephone receiver drops to the floor" really, really loudly. Completely killed the mood.

@sontaran17 @yoshfiction I think that series 7 is a... a mixed bag. A very mixed bag. There were some fantastic episodes, and some less great ones, which are really, quite awful.
@yoshfiction There's three more episodes left :)
Series 8 is still doing well. TH didn't wow me very much at all, and ITD was pretty good, but not that amazing. The rest of the series so far, though, has been brilliant.

@stargazer0118 12 is making me see 11 in a... very different light. 11 just seems so much funnier and madder than before, and it's because of the contrast between 11 and 12 that I'm seeing this. Not that it's a bad thing. I'm loving the new Doctor and everything, and it feels really quite refreshing having that sort of Doctor after both Tennant and Smith. It just so happens that 12 seems to be bringing out the best of 11, while 11 is bringing out the best in 12. It works really well in that sense.

I don't really want to see her back. Her story is over. Don't get me wrong, it was a good story, but it's been 8 years since she first properly left and 5 since her last proper appearance as Rose. I know she was in the 50th, but I think by now, everyone has moved on from her. Then again, I haven't moved on from Captain Jack...

Picked some great moments there, Mark. It must have been really hard to do this because the episode was filled with so many great moments!
@LGwalchmai95 Yes! I love A Good Man Goes to War, it felt very Star Warsy, and that sense of everyone coming together was really nice. Psi and Saibra weren't that amazing characters, and I'm not bothered if they never come back, but I have nothing against them returning. But there are loads of characters I want to see back. Especially Perkins from MOTOE. He was fantastic. We could have Robin Hood and Lundvik as well. This has to happen! :D

@TheAmazingSkyFaller™ Let me guess? Traffic was hell.
@TheTimeTraveller is the 12th Doctor 12/12 :D I did have to guess one of them though.
A good article :D I really liked this episode. Matheison is fantastic! I look forward to Flatline, because he did a fantastic job with the monster, the dialogue, everything. The Foretold is a brilliant threat as well. It was pretty scary, and I love the 66 seconds to live thing. Perkins was a fantastic character, and I was almost cheering at the telly, because I wanted him to join the TARDIS crew. I thought the stuff about Clara wanting to leave was done really well. I was pretty sure she wasn't going to, because I could tell that her story wasn't over yet. was quite surprised at the beginning - I thought we were going to continue from the end of KTM, and I wish we had done. I was so certain we were, that I was a tiny bit worried that that ending had been completely ignored because Clara stepped out of the TARDIS. The change of heart bit was fantastic as well. A cracking story, really. 9/10.

Interesting.... I really like Courtney. She's not my favourite, but she's better an Angie and Artie! Yeah, I think I consider her a companion.
