@yoshfiction An 'apprentice' for the Doctor. A teenager of about 18 years old, from the early 1930s, looking for his place in life.


Just because it'd be something different.

@EternalDoctor @Djornad Kinda counted them... but I was jumping about a bit over including them.

Is Series 8 the only series (including both 'specials' years) to not bring back any classic monsters/characters from the classic series? (Thus far... unless something cool happens in the finale).

@Edoe They should definitely use this website for viral marketing for Doctor Who. It'd work a treat if they did it well.

Only just saw! Death in Heaven is 60 minutes in length! We've lost no run time at all for Series 8! We hoped and guessed that it would be the case, but it's nice to have a confirmation.

@sontaran17 Fairly good. Too many shots I reckon though. A little more 'stinginess' with the amount of shots and it'd be perfect.

@stargazer0118 @Djornad Doctor Who News Archives (it takes a very long time to shift through them all), a few wikipedia pages and a couple of web pages that report on the iplayer ratings. Netflix wasn't the major player that it is now, back in 2008. And we're only counting the L+7 ratings because they indicate how many people watched within one week of broadcast. Netflix, you can watch long after the series has ended, thus making calculations unfair. Point still stands. Series 8 will be the highest viewed series of New Who.

@Chris502 Nope, those were all fine. It was the bullshit 'addiction' excuse that got me. What a half-arsed, roundabout way of backing away from a FAR more interesting direction to take a character. Missed the potential for some Doctor-lite/Clara-lite episodes and a far more interesting dynamic for the two characters when they reunited in the finale. But nope. We got the monolgue about addiction and a complete turn around for the character. Boring. Boring as ****.

@stargazer0118 @Djornad Flippin' heck that wasn't half difficult. Ratings are scare for Series 4 on iplayer. So I can only shift up up with the data I have, but like the other series, the online platforms just weren't as big. So, taing into account the known repeat ratings and the iplayer ratings that I could find, the Series shifts up to about 8.3 million average. Which is still lower than the prospective ratings for Series 8 Live+7. And the fact that worldwide viewership is higher than ever. So like... point still stands. Doctor Who Series 8 is going to be the highest viewed series of New Who.

@stargazer0118 @Djornad Series 1 to 3 have repeat ratings available. Their averages don't move up much at all. 0.4 million tops. Still working out series 4 to 7 averages.

@stargazer0118 Series 4 had REALLY decent repeat figures but not so impressive iplayer figures. Trying to figure out the Live + 7 ratings for Series 4, 5, 6 and 7 now.

@stargazer0118 @Djornad I've the facts right up here. The battle is whether Series 8 will surpass series 4 as the most viewed series. Haven't looked for the 2008 iplayer ratings just yet but since it was a new platform... I think it's an extremely safe bet that Series 8 is now the most viewed New Who series.

@stargazer0118 @Djornad Nope, read that wrong. These are just repeats for all episodes across the spectrum. No iplayer ratings. Just looked it up. Iplayer wasn't around till 2008, January.

@stargazer0118 @Djornad I'm looking it up now and I've found them for Series 1. They were slightly lower on the repeats but much lower in iplayer ratings. Going to see if this trend continues.

I did a rough calculation for the rest of the series, calculating the average increase from the L+7 ratings and THIS IS THE HIGHEST VIEWED SERIES OF NEW WHO. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA.



Ahem.

Finally got around to watching Flatline and I've warmed to the Doctor considerably. It's not that I didn't understand him or accept him at first. I get what his game is, I've just been waiting for him to spell it out: 'I'm a bit of an arse but I'll still die trying to save the people on this planet'. 


For me, he finally had his 'I am the Doctor' moment. And he said it too in his traditionally 'Doctory' way, so bonus!

@Clara Laurinda @Djornad @BollingerKnickers @The Administrator @TARDlSkey @yoshfiction The root cause doesn't have to be an issue if the two who are arguing are mature and accepting. The TV show is just that. A TV show. It doesn't have to be a problem. We can't change the show but we can change how we act towards one another. See?

@Clara Laurinda @Djornad @BollingerKnickers @The Administrator @TARDlSkey @yoshfiction Given Moffat's ability to take criticism from Series 7 and give us Series 8, I thoroughly believe that he can listen. But that's not the problem here, the problem is that we need a new showrunner, period. Bring something new to the show.

@TARDlSkey They tried stuffing too much into the episodes last series. Series 6... I felt the finale did the same and maybe LKH, but other than that the rest of the episodes were okay with their pacing of 45 minutes, I think.

Well... this was very immature of you all. You both had points to say. Both sides had validity. But both sides continued to argue like petulent children, never actually taking a moment to see the other person's viewpoint. And said view points were being pointed out to you by two mediators!


TB was getting Admin's point across. All you had to do was relax and listen and apologise Yosh.


And David was getting Yosh's point across. All Admin had to do was relax, listen and apologise.


All of the world's problems come from man's inability to LISTEN. Like really listen. And to understand.

Well... nice to see the slight increase in overnight ratings. Hopefully this will get higher as we speed towards the end. Unless slightly more people recorded KTM, I can't see it going past 6.9 million viewers.
