@BollingerKnickers If you ever want to talk, I'm here. I don't care that we don't know each other in 'real life' - you're me mate, and that means I love you. And actually...and you may not believe me, or think I'm being stupid, but...I understand what you mean.
Is there anyone here that can recommend me the best tracks from the The Amazing Spider-Man soundtrack? Thanks :-)

Mummy on the Orient Express sounds like it could be a standalone almost as good as Midnight!

@The Genie Not sure till The Caretaker rewatch, sorry! Definitely not the same as you, though!
@The Administrator @ClassicWhovian Ta, that helps :)
So sorry to hear about Lynda Bellingham - what a brave, brave woman; I feel honoured that such a brilliant woman ever graced Doctor Who with her presence.
Did anyone here buy the complete Sarah Jane adventures DVD box set? If so, what's it like as an overall package? Is it worth the money?
@TheBiPunishment Great review :D
Wish we had some proper episode posters right now :/
So I hear that 'Doctor Who' programme is on tonight...might be worth checking out?
@TardisBoy I think the show is strong enough to take risks, and a show that doesn't take risks can become stale.
However, I don't want you to mistake this for me disagreeing with you - I fully understand where you're coming from, and actually think it's a really interesting debate - I'd love to see what you think after the episode! :)
@TardisBoy People have been worried about being offended - but we're forgetting that there is a whole half a series left after The Caretaker - I like the idea of, later on, the Doctor's views in this episode being challenged, leading to some nice character moments where he is forced to admit he is wrong.
But I suppose it's unfair of me to start thinking like this until I've at least seen The Caretaker!
I'm guessing Danny has great hearing...?

@Calebxy Two was pretty lovely, almost cuddly at times!
@The Genie @ClassicWhovian Very fair and well-made argument that I can't say I agree with - Bells is great, but I love Day more!
Thanks, nearly onto 11 - this whole avatar thing has gone on for so long!
@The Genie @ClassicWhovian Your choice and all that, but I'd love to hear why - a particular love for that scene or dislike for the other?
Scene of 2013 - the Quarter Finals
The final quarter final, is, in my opinion, disappointingly easy...!
The Day of the Doctor (The 13 Doctors) VS The Bells of Saint John (Miss Kizlet defeated)

-to be clear, not the Doctor's ride up the Shard, but the events following that.
@TheTimeTraveller is the 12th Doctor The Androids of Tara
@TARDlSkey Because he was so great, I'd like to see him return changed by his new memories - perhaps he's now a nastier person, changed as a direct result of the Doctor's actions, calling his tampering with other people into question, and posing the question whether or not he right he has the right to change him back.
Or not, that could well be rubbish...!
@Chris502 @TheOncomingHurricane Or at most a few stills...!
@edoe101 @ClassicWhovian Ah, go on, you can change your mind if you like...! ;P
@Ladydetemps The little...Daleks - you should melt them with acid, then take the remains and give them to the babies.
Sorry, any chance to...yeah....
@The Finn @ClassicWhovian All depends on your perspective, I suppose....
@TheOncomingHurricane @ClassicWhovian No problem, you can always do them a little late, unless a new 'stage' has started i.e. Semi finals, Final. Thanks :-)
@The Finn @ClassicWhovian Don't agree about the jarring bit personally, but thanks :-)
Scene of 2013 - The Quarter Finals
I'm sorry, I'm so so sorry. I thought this would be the final, back before we'd even voted on the moments. But I didn't want any hand in how things went, so I picked each initial 'face-off' randomly, and since then I've always known this was coming, and even now I'm still not sure what I'll go for. Two of the best scenes of the last 50 years, forget 2013! Ah well, hope you are able to make a decision!
An Adventure in Space and Time (Hartnell sees the future) VS The Day of the Doctor (Never Cruel or Cowardly)
An Adventure in Space and Time - Hartnell sees the future: https ://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9wtQay5yu8
The Day of the Doctor (Never cruel or cowardly): Okay, so I couldn't find a clip of this, sorry. I mean, we all know how this amazing moment goes. But I thought I'd find something, so here's a fan-made video that includes it. As amazing as the video is, we're only looking at the 'what is the Doctor' to the 'never cruel or cowardly' stuff - the projection basically. h ttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4z2HaiJZnc
I wouldn't vote for The Curse of the Black Spot, but I certainly don't think it's as bad as it's made out to be - if nothing else, it's an entertaining 45 minutes, with a few funny lines and a nice moment or two - nothing special, but not deserving of the Fear Her/Love & Monsters treatment, I feel.

@Chris502 The Doctor's "I'm not going to let you stop me now speech" isn't given enough credit, if you ask me.
The Eighth Doctor Regenerates (The Night of the Doctor) VS Christmas Cracker (The Time of the Doctor)
So, I couldn't find a clip only of the 8th Doctor's regeneration, but it should show a cut down version - if not, we're only looking at the regeneration scene itself: http ://youtu.be/-U3jrS-uhuo?t=5m3s
Couldn't find a Christmas Cracker clip at all, sorry...!
@doctorwhotvuk Hope you're wrong, I'm afraid :P
@Calebxy Welshall see...not predominantly, to my knowledge.
Sorry, I really just wanted to make that awful pun....
@TheOncomingHurricane @ClassicWhovian Can't say I agree, but I sort of see where you're coming from....
@TheOncomingHurricane @ClassicWhovian Why does everyone have a problem with 'baby' and 'boys' from 11?!?
@edoe101 @ClassicWhovian They're more interesting now :-)
Yay! Someone that loves that scene!
"Take it all" vs "To Save the Doctor"
Scene of 2013
Okay, final 'heat':
The Time of the Doctor ("If you want my life") vs An Adventure in Space and Time (Hartnell sees the future
The Time of the Doctor ("If you want my life")
Doctor: Sorry I’m
a bit slow. May not be at my best right now.
Dalek: You are dying, Doctor.
Doctor: Yes, I am
dying. You’ve been trying to kill me for centuries, and here I am, dying of old
age. If you want something done, do it yourself.
Dalek: You will die and the Time Lords will never
Doctor: You still
can’t work up the courage to shoot me, can you? You’re still worried I’ve got
something up my sleeve! Well you knock yourselves out boys. I’ve got nothing
Daleks shoot at the
screaming people of Christmas.
Suddenly, in the sky,
the shape of a crack yawns open – a light slithers out, and into the Doctor.
His hands start to glow.
Dalek: You will die now, Doctor. This is the end of
you! The rules of regeneration are known. You have expended all your lives!
what did you say? Did you mention the rules? Now, listen, bit of advice. Tell
me the truth is you think you know it, lay down the law if you’re feeling brave
but, Daleks, never, ever tell me the rules!
Dalek: Emergency, emergency! The Doctor is
regenerating! The Doctor is regenerating!
Doctor: Oh, look
at this! Regeneration number 13 – we’re breaking some serious science here
boys! I’ll tell you what, it’s going be a whopper! Ha ha!
Dalek: Exterminate! Exterminate the Doctor!
Doctor: You think
you can stop me now Daleks? If you want my life – ha ha! – come and get it!!!
The Doctor spins his
arm around, and a stream of golden light bursts from it, destroying a Dalek.
inside! Get off the street, get inside, quick, quick!
The Doctor spins the
other arm and destroys another Dalek. He laughs.
Doctor: Love from
And his head erupts in
light, shooting upwards. The Dalek ship and all of Trenzalore is decimated.
An Adventure in Space and Time (Hartnell sees the future)
then, who’s who?
walks over and shakes William Hartnell’s hand.
won’t lie to you, I’m scared stiff.
you’ll be fine. In fact, you’ll be wonderful. I told them you know. There’s
only one man in England who can take over.
couldn’t they get him?
Everyone laughs. But
amongst that, the two men share a solemn nod. And that music starts.
Hartnell reaches into
the set and turns on the TARDIS time rotor.
Man: Red light,
A bell rings.
positions everyone please.
Hartnell places his
hands on the console. Except he’s not Hartnell now. Now, he is the Doctor.
to record in fifteen...
Hartnell flips a
switch, then slowly looks up, right at us. And standing there, a look of awe
and respect on his face, is the 11th Doctor. The 11th
Doctor smiles, and Hartnell smiles back. The 11th Doctor flicks some
switches, then, just as Hartnell had done, he places his hands on the console.
And we get the best bit of music of 2013...? Probably? This isn’t really the
place for me to ponder that....
The camera lingers on
Hartnell, just as the smile lingers on his face. We see there is nothing where
the 11th Doctor seemed to be. Except it wasn’t the 11th
Doctor William Hartnell was seeing, of course. It was the future. And it was
@doctorwhotvuk Okay, that does slightly reassure me - I don't love his episodes, but I'm open to enjoy them, so hopefully I can enjoy this one! Thanks :-)
Anyone been doing the Radio Times sci-fi champion thing?
( http ://www.radiotimes.com/scifichampion )
Personally, I'm supporting Ianto all the way! :D
@doctorwhotvuk Shame. Hope I love it, obviously. For comparison, what do you make of The Lodger? And is this better or worse? Thanks :-)
@Mark McCullough @ClassicWhovian How'd you mean? :)

@Mark McCullough @ClassicWhovian I wouldn't goes as far as 'hands down', but I agree with you - I really hope it gets to the next round - I'm going to write a little bit about why each moment is amazing, and I want to write about this one!
2 more 'heats' to go!
This one is the regeneration face-off! But the last one...I don't know if I can pick between the two...! But that's for next time - this time:
The Night of the Doctor (Regeneration) VS The Time of the Doctor (Regeneration)
The Night of the Doctor (Regeneration)
Doctor: I don’t
suppose there’s any need for a Doctor any more. Make me a warrior now.
Ohila: I took the
liberty of preparing this one myself (hands
him a chalice)
Doctor: Get out
GET OUT! All of you.
They start to leave
Doctor: Will it
Charley, C’rizz, Lucie, Tamsin, Molly, friends, companions I’ve known I salute
you. And Cass...I apologise. Physician, heal thyself.
The Doctor drinks from
the chalice, then drops it. His hands glow, and he groans, and convulses. He
The Time of the Doctor (Regeneration)
The Doctor walks up
the steps of the TARDIS, young again.
young again. You’re okay. You didn’t even change your face.
Doctor: Ha! It’s
started. I can’t stop it now, this is just the reset. Whole new regeneration
He has some fish
fingers and custard. Clara laughs.
Doctor: Taking a
bit longer. Just breaking it in.
He pulls a leaver, and
the TARDIS takes off.
Doctor: It all
just disappears, doesn’t it? Everything you are, gone in a moment like breath
on a mirror. Any moment now, he’s a-coming.
Clara: You. You
are the Doctor.
Doctor: Yep. And
I always will be.
He raises a glowing
Doctor: But times
change and so must I.
He looks round, and
suddenly the TARDIS is full of colourful children’s drawings of the Doctor’s
heroics. Amelia runs past.
Clara looks round, and
we see that really, there’s nothing there.
Doctor: The first
face this face saw.
Amelia runs round the
Doctor: We all
change. When you think about it, we are all different people, all through our
lives. And that’s okay, that’s good, you gotta keep moving so long as you
remember all the people that you used to be. I will not forget one line of
this. Not one day. I swear. I will
always remember when the Doctor was me.
And now, walking down
the stairs, it’s Amy Pond. She smiles, and puts a hand to the Doctor’s face,
and he puts a hand to hers.
Amy: Raggedy man.
Again we see no one is
The Doctor removes his
bow tie, and lets it fall to the floor. He closes his eyes.
Clara: No, no!
Please don’t change.
The Doctor lurches
back in an orange glow, and suddenly, he regenerates.
@TheOncomingHurricane Thank you! Watched that episode recently, was no where near as impressed as I remembered :/
