@TARDlSkey I know that sometimes it can feel like us lot here are just...well, avatars, but, as strange as it may seem, I'm sure I speak for everyone here when I say that we are your friends. We're always here, if you want us. If nothing else, hopefully we can make you smile a little.
Come back soon, if you can. :-)
@TheBiPunishment Thanks :-)

If anyone has the time, it will (amazingly) help me with my English Language homework and ultimately coursework - favourite classic DVD covers? As many as spring to mind is great!

@Runcible @ClassicWhovian Wow, that's it - thanks! Seriously, that's great!!! Thank you so much :D :D :D

To all the people voting for various future showrunners below - firstly, that's great and all, but I just want to make it clear - I do not have the power to chose the next showrunner, so I'm afraid to tell you your votes count for nothing - sorry ;) :P
After all, if I did have that power, I'd have long since have taken control of the show myself, gone power mad and brought back the jelly monsters from The Three Doctors in an episode entitled OMG LOOK SOME JELLYZZZ!!!
That all sounds far to terrifyingly technical for me (I imagine, for example, that if I get a new phone, Cybermen will invade), but thanks all the same! :)
2) I have literally no idea what that is/means....
3) Still thanks though!
So, according to the idiots and the press (aren't they usually the same thing?), we're now allowed to suggest random writers who have never written for Doctor Who before for the next showrunner - sorry, can I just stress how ridiculous that sounds - random writers who have never written for Doctor Who before - I think I'll just pop Derek Landy's name in there. He'd be epic at it. He would burn us all.
@TARDlSkey Melt him with acid!
Is there anyone that knows about the music in this trailer:
Is it new from Doctor Who? Or is it from elsewhere? I've never heard it before, but need it in my life!Thanks :-)
@Runcible @stargazer0118 You're resigning over that? I'm resigning over 2nd Doctor vs 4th Doctor. And by resigning, I of course mean picking the 2nd Doctor ;)
@The Genie @ClassicWhovian Haha, that was an...awkward viewing experience, but...had to be done...!
We've enjoyed watching the series from the perspective that Ianto is the king of sass, his only opposition John (Out of Time) and Rhys, and reinterpreting almost everything as Ianto trying to retain his title (e.g. taking on Owen in Captain Jack Harkness) - it's been fun! We'll finish the last few episodes of Series 3, then on with Torchwood Series 2!
Little Brother's Torchwood Series One ratings:
Everything Changes - 6/10
Day One - 5/10
Ghost Machine - 7/10
Cyberwoman - 8/10
Small Worlds - 8/10
Countrycide - 7.5/10
Greeks Bearing Gifts - 7/10
They Keep Killing Suzie - 8/10
Random Shoes - 7/10
Out of Time - 6/10
Combat - 8/10
Captain Jack Harkness - 8/10
End of Days - 9/10
Series Average - 7.3/10
I have a really good feeling that I'm going to love Robot of Sherwood - the trailer (the one with the epic music) is brilliant!
Anyone else think that Phil Ford felt practically like a showrunner on Doctor Who Extra, or at least like Moffat during the Russell T Davies era?
I now also have the Black edition and the Regular edition. Just saying ;P
Have you read it yet??? :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

The TV trailer looks...well...explosive!

I'm getting less and less time for DWTV - really annoying. Hopefully by next week I'll be back on more regularly. But the point is, I missed the WD consensus on Into the Dalek - anyone mind filling me in?

Moffat's Midnight, perhaps?

2 weeks, 4 days ago on Deep Breath: The Very Best of Clara Oswald
@The Genie @doctorwhotvuk (This needs answering)
Hey, Skulduggery Pleasant fans - I have the Shadow Edition of The Dying of the Light, a day early.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Conversation @ http://www.doctorwhotv.co.uk/discusswho/beyond-the-whoniverse/
So, I've just been reading about the recent...events on this site. Now, I'm not a rude or aggressive person. I can't remember the last time I raised my voice. I can't remember the last time I swore. But to anyone that is vocalising a problem with that beautiful moment in Deep Breath...F*CK OFF.
Hey, I can't change your beliefs. And I know things like homophobia can be developed in ways that are in no way the fault of the individual. But if you start throwing your stupid opinions around like they are the law, if you start being malicious? F*ck off.
My best friend happens to be homosexual. I say 'happens to', because it really isn't a big thing. That isn't who she is. She isn't 'the gay one' or anything like that. She is a beautiful, brilliant individual defined, like everyone else, by far more important characteristics. And she was really pleased to see that kiss in Deep Breath. It made her smile.
If you're willing to group people together based on their sexuality, not their individuality, then similarly, if you target one of them, you target everyone. And if you are sitting there, targeting the entire homosexual community? F*ck off. You're targeting a hell of a lot of people. Any homosexual. Their friends. Their family. You are a minority. And you're wrong. So just...f*ck off.
Whatever you think of Strax, Dan Starkey is brilliant - so good with his time, and so dedicated to his character. And an amazing actor - if you've ever heard him in a Big Finish story, you'll know how clever he is at voicing a whole cast of Sontarans, all instantly distinguishable yet obviously the same species. Like I said, he's brilliant.

@TARDlSkey I noticed that - I agree with you, that it was a positive thing, but it was done very abruptly - I'd have liked her to have looked at the phone, hesitated for just a moment, and then hung up. Still great though!
1. The Eleventh Hour
2. The Impossible Astronaut
3. Deep Breath
5. Partners in Crime
6. New Earth
7. Asylum of the Daleks
8. Smith and Jones
@TheOncomingHurricane I imagine Moffat was the one throwing paper at the children....

@TardisBoy Didn't know some people dislike it - any particular reason?
An almost entire music overhaul in Deep Breath was amazing - Gold's music was as fantastic as ever, and even better, it was brand new!
There are so many comments about Deep Breath, I'm really not going to be able to catch up on everyone's thoughts! No, I really am not going to be able to! But I really want to know what everyone thought - would it be rude of me to ask: 'one sentence about Deep Breath and a rating'?
I have to go to work now - I get to watch the episode at around 10.30...so I just wanted to say that I hope everyone enjoys it! Look forwarding to being able to discuss it soon! :D

@The Genie @ClassicWhovian All your points are valid (well, the TARDIS one is the only one that is probably a bit too nitpick-y for me, but whatever), and I actually agree - I see all of that, and acknowledge it. And yet I love the scene anyway, because I just find it so...magical. :-)

*Activates rotating moustache. Lets moustache twirl 720 degrees. Leaves.*
@The Genie @ClassicWhovian Love to hear you expand on that, if you don't mind? :)
@sontaran17 @doctorwhotvuk Argh! Who is this guy? He's terrible! And Australian, for goodness sake!
Only messing, obviously ;-) :-P
I think what Capaldi said about Clara is probably designed to add suspense to a certain plot point anyone that read - I think it was Moffat's Radio Times previews (Not sure - been a lot of previewing lately!) - will remember.
I love just catching these odd snippets about an allotment, with no idea what's actually going on. Bet it's a nice allotment though!
@TardisBoy In high heels?
@TardisBoy Don't like the way your avatar is smiling out at me >:/
@TardisBoy Name's great, if you ask me. High drama, high tension, high emotion.
@TardisBoy Oh..damn. Should...should probably have...watched that. Shut up.
@TardisBoy There's really no contest, is there? :)
