It feels good to be home.
@Miss Bosswald wants you to nuke the Moon. I'd say Engines of War just because it's flat out incredible.

So, according to the AI, the best episodes of series 8 are Time Heist and Into the Dalek in joint first place followed by The Caretaker and then Listen, Robot of Sherwood and Deep Breath. Some fans are not gonna be pleased..

@sontaran17 Oh, are you the new reviewer? :D
1 week, 1 day ago on Time Heist Review
An interesting review, Clint. Not one I agree with, really, but then again, it's always fun to read reviews that clash with your own opinion. "Fairing worse than Miss Delphox is Clara, who has never been written more poorly than in this episode. Examine Clara’s role..." is a fair criticism but Clara has, essentially, been the main character in the previous four episodes. I was delighted by Time Heist because it didn't give Clara much to do as I felt she needed a week off. Also, your line about Miss Delphox left a pretty bad taste in my mouth.
@sontaran17 @Gustaff @TardisBoy And it's never explicitly said that it's on Gallifrey in The Day of the Doctor. All signs seem to point to it not being Gallifrey. Then you've got the whole.. why use a device thats burn up a planet on said planet? O.o

A splendid article, you two. Great choices. Regarding number 1, I just adored that speech. Good God, Steven Moffat can write well. "Fear makes companions of us all" is a line from An Unearthly Child and it's mild fan-service like that that makes me love Moffat every week.
@Planet of the Deaf As a creative exercise I tried writing some 12/Clara stories and I found it surprisingly easy. You just have to think 'The Doctor is mean, he's irascible, he doesn't put up with nonsense' throughout and it flows onto the page more or less. However, that's me after three (nearly four) complete episodes. Poor Tucker must have really struggled because, as I say, Capaldi is a glowering physical presence and hard to capture on paper.

@ Notsosmartguy @supermoff is alone. Listen... Engines of War is a gem and Touched By An Angel is terrific despite the fact it's light on sci-fi - and Joanne Harris' recent The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Time Traveller is astounding for a short read.
@supermoff is alone. Listen... Thanks, supermoff :D I was surprised by last year's NSA. They should have had a couple of Clara novels and then one with Eleven on his own. Or postponed two novels for publication between TDoTD and TToTD (obviously, they're set during that time)?
Another great article, Mark. Regarding the riot... why didn't the Robots just aim higher?

This had me thinking. Now that the rule of the being in Doctor Who and then being cast as the Doctor has been well and truly broken.. what if Moffat and Gatiss have actually inserted the next actor to play the Doctor into the series? Say, for example, that Ben Miller is the Thirteenth Doctor and he's already been confirmed to play him but rather than it being sheer coincidence, Moffat/Gatiss have set it up deliberately as a story arc of sorts.... food for the thoughting.

While this is totally understandable and I completely respect the BBC's decision, "climatic fight scene between Robin Hood and the Sheriff" suggests that either of the two are killed and if it's the Sheriff (which seems most likely given he's the villain) I'm curious as to how they'll edit around such a big moment.

@supermoff of Sherwood @TheOncomingHurricane @SonicTheHedgehogRules And it was more the acting that carried it than the script. There were a few very obvious Gatiss quirks and they were lovely but Bradley, Raine and Dhawan's performances were what drove AAISAT.

Lots of people have been advance-rubbishing this episode. I, frankly, can't wait for it. Let's hope it proves them wrong! But after An Adventure in Space and Time, Gatiss cannot get any better!

I'll be honest - it's Time Heist for me. Everything we've seen about it is hugely appealing and I hope Stephen Thompson can produce a really good script (the two before were iffy for me) for the Twelfth Doctor and Clara. Also, Listen looks intriguing purely because those who read the scripts said it's the best out of the lot. Robots of Sherwood is another Gatiss special that looks like it could be great fun.
@CGT Okay, I'm listening. What episode are you most anticipating?
@TardisBoy I couldn't have put it better myself. There's so much talent on the Internet and not all of it gets showcased so it's lovely that DWTV has dedicated a whole post every week, appreciating all the brilliant creations of Who fans; it's just another thing I adore about this site.

Where did the Korean Adrics go?
Why did he just make a seal/crying baby noise? O.o
@SonicTheHedgehogRules Perhaps Korea are several series behind and they're just celebrating the appearance of brand new companion, Martha.. ;)
@SonicTheHedgehogRules Oh, and he's gone again!
@supermoff I keep thinking it's something like Mozart and not Murray Gold. Amazing stuff.
I love the way he says Peter Capaldi
The Doctor speaks Korean now. Korean's cool.
Wait, that reminds me - why isn't the TARDIS translation circuit not working if it's in that hall with them?
@TardisBoy I love how Jenna and Peter are just sitting there smiling like, what the hell do we say XD
@The Finn @PK-S Exactly!
@TardisBoy Also, if they haven't seen the episode yet what questions can they ask? O.o
@TomLong2 Yeah, whenever Capaldi speaks about three quarters of the audience applaud or cheer - and then when the translator says it about 2 people applaud or cheer... XD
@Sam Davern He managed to avoid this one.
@The Finn You're not really missing much aha
@ClassicWhovian I was thinking that too. Subtitles maybe?
Great Dalek impression, dude.
@SonicTheHedgehogRules Nick Briggs, eat your heart out ;)

@sontaran17 @Gustaff But after TND aired, Russell T Davies was asked why a giant robot didn't turn up in the history books and he looked like he had forgotten to turn the iron off.
@Gustaff @sontaran17 Yeah, of course but there was, of course, the substantial gap between TND and TToA/FaS where fans were scratching their heads wondering.
Brilliant jibe at the "Capaldi is too old" complaint with the "carer" line and turned into a genuinely laugh-out-loud moment. Such wonderful witty dialogue - I really have high expectations for this series.
