@Clara Laurinda @Djornad @doctorwhotvuk The unique point of view that DWTV is Moffat? Y'all keep on missing my point...

@yoshfiction @Djornad @Clara Laurinda @BollingerKnickers @The Administrator @TARDlSkey You sir, are absolutely right. So we should deal with this right now.

@Clara Laurinda @Djornad @BollingerKnickers @The Administrator @TARDlSkey @yoshfiction Exactly :) Exactly what I was saying. This argument came about because the two sides failed to understand each other's viewpoints.
@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.
@Clara Laurinda @Djornad @BollingerKnickers @The Administrator @TARDlSkey @yoshfiction Yeah but... that's besides the point here. The point here is both sides should be accepting of the other's viwpoint and... leave it at that. Maturity definitely comes into it.
@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.
Better. Much, much better.

@Chris502 Pssst... from what I've seen of the series so far - that's probably going to happen. They opened up interesting ideas and directions to go in aaaaand... didn't. I don't see anything changing till ep12.
@PK-S @Djornad I shall indeed. No idea who will be reviewing mine.

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.
@Chris502 @Djornad Chris, I'm not stupid. But the structure of it all and the slight far-fetchedness of it do not sit well with me.

@Chris502 Moffat haters? He didn't even write this on- oh yeah... they be stoopid.
Still having an awful lot of trouble with the believability of Clara's choices. And I still can't get a handle on the 12th Doctor. Can't quite figure out whether he's a cold-hearted bas**** or he's just hiding his emotions because it's more efficient for saving lives. I half love it and half don't. But, for me, I think the writer's really need to start re-evaluating how realistic Clara's choices are. They're a little all over the place for me.
@TheBiPunishment Debatable. But an interesting thought.

@NightRises @Chris502 Indeed, indeed. I cannu fault the directing or cinematography though. The episode, on the whole, looked fantastic!
@LGwalchmai95 I do have to say, I really rather love Series 6 as well. It used to be that Series 1 was first place. But some days the production values of Rose really grate on me. So Series 1 & 6 reguarly fluctuate as my favourite series. Series 7 is right at the bottom. Bitterly disappointed with that one.
Series 8, I've no idea where I would rate it really. Perhaps something like this so far?
Series 8 positioning hangs on this second half of the series really. The next 5 episodes that decide. It'll need to be a killer finale as well.

@Gustaff @TheBiPunishment So... much... angst. I cannu stand it! So Doctor Who. That's a good TV show, innit?
@TheBiPunishment Makes sense. Also the towing was simply a background detai, which does help.

@yoshfiction @Djornad Try and hold onto it in little ways. I still collect sonic screwdrivers, for example. And I have a replica 'Woody' from the Toy Story trilogy. They're here at uni with me.
@yoshfiction @Djornad I can see your point, but Clara definitely over-reacted.
@yoshfiction All the time, I reckon it's just part of growing up. The childish excitement is gone, reserved for rare things. I was an excited little puppy in the cinema for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. I was the same for watching other films, Cloud Atlas and Prisoners and Saving Mr. Banks. And there are another few films this year that I am giddy for. I think it really is just part of growing up and the wonder of the world leaving you.
But I do still love Doctor Who and I still recognise it as quality film work.
You know what would be good? If the BBC just lied. And everyone on the production just lied to us.
'After a successful 10 year run, we've decided to cancel Doctor Who due to declining viewership.'
Then, many months later in July 2015, we get a trailer for Series 9 and they say 'lol, jokes. But at least you're talking about us again'.
It'd never work unless they filmed entirely in the studio... oh well. Just spit-balling here.
You know what we need to kick up buzz again? Return of some old enemies. OR, the show should do something REALLY controversial. Any publicity is publicity after all. Even bad.
But then of course, never at the expense of story. Story first. Was merely thinking in marketing terms and getting buzz around the show again.
@yoshfiction @doctorwhotvuk Only down by like... 100,000 average from last year. Still one of the highest rated dramas going but... it is a little lower. It could be franchise fatigue as @stargazer0118 said, or it could be TV ratings in general are down slightly. Who knows?
In case ye were still wondering if Twelve giving the humans the choice was a bad move on his part. I still really think it was a completely justified move that wasn't wrong in the slightest.
@NightRises @TardisBoy Good lord. He's got it!

@Mark McCullough I gotta solution, hows about everyone grows the heck up?
Following on from Admin's comment before, here's my review of the new fan series that Admin is doing.
@NightRises @sontaran17 I see where you're coming from. There's being proud of your work and wanting people to watch and then saying "this is the best thing ever", which, really... you don't know that. You're making something for an audience, they'll decide.
@sontaran17 I agree. We can't say "don't hype the episode". OF COURSE they are going to hype it! Every peron involved in a film production will hype the thing that they've been working on! We're the problem.
NEWS FLASH, yo.
Keep a level head when going into an episode or it won't be their (the film maker's) fault, it'll be your own fault for over-hyping the episode.
Why is this happening!? I'm not panicked, the show is still the fourth highest rated Drama that the BBC produce, but this is a bit annoying. What the devil is taking our viewers away? We've lost an average of about 200,000 people so far. Quite annoying.

@TardisBoy In fairness... if I was proud of one of my films, I'd hype it to heck. I think it's up to us to keep a clean head going into... anything, really.

@doctorwhotvuk Heck no! Never drop the advance reviews. You've even put in EACH review that the views are your own. It may be difficult, but just ignore the stupid people of the world.
@Mark McCullough Yup, probably agree with that whole heartedly. This week's episode shall thus be known as the one where Clara overreacted - and even that is a huge understatement.
@NightRises I think I get what you mean, for Doctor Who, or any sci-fi show, the concentration on character and the story has to be balanced. And it hasn't been entirely balanced recently. I'd say it should certainly be a rule for Doctor Who, it's absolutely not a general rule though.
