@The Watchful Guardian I actually tried to do Live+7 for the previous Series and they don't improve by much. Iplayer has shot up as a plaform massively in recent years, you see. From my findings I concluded that Series 8 was still the highest viewed series on average, but by a small margin. Something like 1.5 million difference between Series 4 and 8.

So the Series average this year will be at about 7.25 million viewership. Lowest of New Who. HOWEVER, it will be the highest viewed series of New Who when the more accurate 'Live +7' figures are fully released. You did good Series 8. You did good.

@TardisBoy is in Heaven Now that I'd love to see. I just think of her 'no nonsense' approach to helpng Liam Neeseon's character in Love Actually. Bit like Capaldi in that way.

@The Finn @ClaraOswaldIsAwesome Ye have impeccable taste, good sir. It would be incredible. Unfortunately, she's really getting on these days. Check out The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. She's wonderful in it. And just about everything else that she's in. But she couldn't play the Doctor. Which makes me very sad.

@NightRises @Djornad No, no, that's fair too. In terms of the character, it may not work for you. But we can't knock the decision from an experimental point of view or the actual thought of it. Well... we can. You can if you want. :')

@NightRises @Djornad Just because there was a point behind the decision doesn't mean it will appear in the episode :)


I believe we've said in the past that it would be far better if a gay character was just dropped into the show but a big deal wasn't made of it. It's exactly the same thing here. "Gay/lesbian/transgendered people exist. That is all." could very well be the only statement that was being aimed for. Again, it's a very encouraging thought.

@NightRises Fair is fair. I've been thinking the same thing myself. But then I remember that I too tell stories and if I wanted to make some sort of statement regarding transgendered people, this would be a fairly decent way to go about it. If there is a point to his (Moffat's) storytelling, then I'm all for it. It has certainly got people talking. And I think that is a good thing.

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).

@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 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.

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!
