The Watchful Guardian
When posting, always think about others.
I hope that Series 8 has a 'classic' episode. One which is universally loved. It was one of the things which Series 7 missed. Name came the closest and rated the highest in the DWM poll. But it'd be nice for Series 8 to have an episode like TDW, TEH, M (interestingly Name actually ranked higher than this classic?), B, TGITF, TEC/TDD...

@TardisBoy Or we'll be away and not able to see it.....

@TardisBoy True. Maybe it is hard to find a TARDIS related teaser for that ep.
@TardisBoy I wonder if each of the teasers are based around episodes. I would speculate more but as the episode titles aren't yet confirmed yet, it probably isn't allowed.
@ThePaternosterGangAreAwesome I agree. And I think by the end of his run, his darkness will have worn off leaving a kind old man bowing out with a smile. Bit Ninth Doctor esque
@stargazer0118 I think that they'll have to play it carefully. The Doctor shouldn't be a dark character rather a character with a darker side. As I've said before, I'm looking forward to seeing this Doctor smile as it'll be a rare but wonderful occurrence.
@TardisBoy Thank you very much.

5. Partners in Crime 7/10
@Lewis Robinson-Hurst But if there hadn't been another way, would it have been wrong? Would it have been wrong to sacrifice the 'innocents' on Gallifrey for the sake of the universe?

Sorry yeah, I meant SoD.

It's not that surprising though. It was set for release in 2016 wasn't it? That means it would have been up against the Batman v Superman film as well as Captain America 3 which would have, no doubt, knocked it out of the park.

I don't know if this one counts but the 'why doesn't anyone go to the police' line in Blink is great example of a writer (Moffat in this case) interacting with the audience.
You're just getting that now?
A tad cheesy?
The one in Utopia about the Doctor and the Master being brothers is rather amusing.
@TARDlSkey @The Watchful Guardian Yeah, I think you should be able to have access to it. I know that the US doesn't have the specials, but I'm pretty sure the UK does.

@sontaran17 You've been taking an overdose of "comments on the article pages", haven't you?Seriously though, it is sad how unpleasant people can be, particularly (though not exclusively) online where they are anonymous.
@Ladydetemps I quite like it. Poses an interesting question about the effects the Doctor has on people.. Good guest cast. Plot can be a bit week at points eg. the Doctor makes an elaborate plan to break in to the palace and then spends the rest of the episode breaking in easily.
@TARDlSkey @The Watchful Guardian What country are you in?
@TARDlSkey @The Watchful Guardian Really? I've got it on mine.

@TARDlSkey Do you have Netflix?

Moffat has said that the Picnic on Asgard was with 10.
@TARDlSkey I think that's been suggest before, hasn't it?

I'm slightly irritated with TheFallofTheEleventh Youtube channel. They make some wonderful trailers but they've been using audio content from the leaked episodes recently which I'm very irritated about especially as they don't put any warning on the videos about the spoilers. So beware watching their videos if you don't want to be spoiled.

But what a wonderful TARDIS it made.
6 days, 8 hours ago on How does the TARDIS reflect the Doctor?
Wonderful article. Really enjoyed it. Well done Mr Richard Elliot Capaldi(!?!)!
We're pretty sure that he's aware of the site. I can't remember details but the story goes something like this: After the Series 7 leak, DWTV closed its comments and Moffat a few days later thanked the fans for closing the comments on their websites and at the time DWTV was the only major site to have done so.

They're released every four weeks. So the next one will be the 21st.

"There's a small group of whoivans who think Capaldi is the Master! I have lots of evidence to back this theory up... I mean Capaldi is wearing a ring in this picture isn't that just screaming Master?"
"Most parts to a new costume and some pictures provide helpful hints to fans so they can have something to puzzle about until the show airs. A promotional picture of Danny shows a watch on his wrist, my guess would be a fob watch meaning he is the real doctor, master or another time Lord. So for this picture I'm just guessing the ring means something too..."
I don't know what to say. I'm all up for speculation but the extent to which people over think things.... Actually thinking about it, I over think things all the time. But anyway this one amused me.

I think the former because Moffat definitely has plans for the Doctor prior to casting them. For example in the case of 11, Moffat thought about casting Capaldi but felt it would be wrong for the show at that point.
6 days, 13 hours ago on Moffat: Series 8 Not A Fairytale, There Are Consequences
The end of TATM was quite Fairytale esque. As was the Town of Christmas the Time of the Doctor. And Rory's Centurion armour in AGMGTW. While Series 6-7 weren't as Fairytale esque as Series 5, they had the same Fairytale tones at work in the background.
It's nice to see that Christina Chong (Lorna Bucket) has been cast in Star Wars episode VII.

But when he met Clara, he was a widower..... At least his time with River had run out so she was dead to him.

There'll be one more won't there? On the 21st?
It's just the light, I think.
@TARDlSkey @The Watchful Guardian If the change is just because of sound then that is a bit insulting. But if certain group of fans like to give themselves a name I'm fine with that. I don't think a DW fan is obliged to use the name Whovian.
6 days, 15 hours ago on Conversation @ http://www.doctorwhotv.co.uk/discusswho/062014/
@Ladydetemps @The Watchful Guardian Fanbases like having names: Whovians, Trekkies, Ringers etc.
Wonderful cover. Looking forward to this issue.
6 days, 15 hours ago on DWM #476: “Am I A Good Man?”
Since we're talking about names: Let's pretend that the word Whovian is no more. What new name would you called the DW Fanbase?
Going from below, clearly people aren't fans of the term Dweeks....
@TARDlSkey I don't know. Much wrong has been done in the name Whovian. I myself suggested, a couple of days ago, that we might want a new name for the spoiler free fans.
@edoe101 @The Watchful Guardian I really like NIS. It's not flawless (I felt that Webley had lots of potential as a character [perhaps being in league with the Cybermen etc.] and the children were a bit cringey at points) but I did really enjoy it.

@edoe101 I haven't seen such hate for the new Cybermen. NIS isn't loved, but I remember people really enjoying the new design and the voice. The old design was the one getting the stick though that was only really because people wanted an upgrade.
“When somebody comes in and takes over from the team that were there when you were there they tend to cut a lot of stuff and go in their direction. If you’re not in that plan then there’s nothing you can do about it. That’s a BBC decision, it’s not my decision.”
Do you reckon John has forgotten that Moff did invite him back for AGMGTW? Moffat has had a plan for a story with Jack but John was busy filming Torchwood.
