I don't see the problem. They need to be distinguishable in some way.

I've always wondered about meta-crisis doctor and Rose. It would be nice to find that Capaldi and his companion find themselves back in the universe.  Or perhaps something with Matt. I can't see it being on the day or the month to mark the anniversary, as it'll be in between series. If this season ends in November, and the next one begins next summer. (March 2015 would mark DW's 10th anniversary.)

Completely agree. It's funny, I was actually listening to The Impossible Planet theme when  I saw this article pop up on my Twitter feed. The Impossible Planet was used a lot on Rose's episodes, including the Doomsday episode where Rose and The Doctor part ways.

I think TV's changed a lot since then, and most people don't have the attention span to watch a 4 parter, or dare I say, an 8 part serial. While you might say, 'Well, true fans of the show will'. I agree. But Doctor Who needs to appeal to more than just its hardcore fan base to stay on the air, which is what I want more than anything else.

Just pre-ordered The Crawling Terror. Looking forward to it.  I haven't read a WHO novel before, if I enjoy it'll I'll look into purchasing some others too, including the other two mentioned here.

The aliens/monsters are looking great (as far as I can tell) in series 8. Can't wait.

I'd like to see the return of Omega in this series, as well.

Absolutely they are! I'd like to see them square off against each Doctor, once at the most.  And I'd include the Weeping Angels too.

Sooner than I thought. Cool. Had it pre-ordered on Amazon months ago. Just 4.5 months to go.

As long as the show doesn't lose its humour, something I've always loved in Doctor Who.It's the little things like the jibes between the Doctor and River. The scene in Doomsday where David's Doctor walks the wrong way out of the room that contains the sphere. Or the moment in The Impossible Astronaut, when Matt's Doctor realizes that Reagan and Canton Everett have spotted him in the Oval Office. 

They're the moments I couldn't do without. But I welcome the show wearing a darker theme for a while. I loved Amy's Choice, and that was dark-ish.

No way, I love the theme and it's iconic. I didn't particularly like the theme of series 7 though, hopefully series 8 will better. I welcome the question though, it's always good to hear ideas and views, even ones we disagree on.

I enjoyed The Time Of The Doctor, not so much The Day Of The Doctor though, but you can't please everyone. I'm happy with the show in general.

I like two-parters for finales. As long  as the second part, or the concluding part isn't put onto the next season's. Like The Walking Dead, for instance, where last season finished as a cliff hanger. I know it gets viewers tuning in to find out what happens on the next series, but sometimes there's a year long gap between series, and for me personally, that's too long. It's been a year now since we've had a proper Doctor Who series. Despite their being two shows in between.

One of my absolute favourites. I particularly like WHO episodes with less monsters and more psychology. And this one did that very well.

Theism is not just the belief in a god but a theist takes on a specific position. They believe in a personal god, they believe in a specific deity who has 'revealed' himself to mankind. 


You can't be an "unsure" theist. According to most doctrine, for instance you have to "accept Jesus into your heart as your lord and saviour" to be a true Christian. To me a Muslim you are required to "accept that Allah is the one true god and Muhammad is his messenger". 


An agnostic can't claim that position.


Anything outside of that position is not theism, Therefore by definition it's a-theism. Since the "a" in atheism literally means "without" or "not". Since the agnostic is "not" a theist.


As for atheism, its well known that most technical atheists (those who do not believe in a god) don't call themselves atheists. About 3% do call themselves atheists, the true figure is about double that . So say it's 5%

5% of 7 billion is 350 million. That's not taking into account self-proclaimed agnostics. And an higher figure than about 99% of officially recognized religious groups that exist today.

My main point was atheism does matter. Certainly in the west, where a good 5-10% of the public are atheists. That's higher than the amount of Muslims and Jews in the west combined. And our voices matter just as much as anyone elses.

@Puller58 @Nina1  "I doubt there are all that many atheists,


Atheists and agnostics (agnosticism is a form of atheism) make up about 250 million people worldwide. That makes them in 6th place in terms of religious affiliation, worldwide (out of aprox 4,000 religions). If you include Buddhists, most of whom don't believe in a deity, that makes them 4th place.

I'd say that makes atheists very relevant.

"Religious people are being oppressed!" & "Loss of religious freedom"


They seem to be confusing a loss of an "advantage" with an act of "oppression". 


They're not being driven out of public life, they're just in the process of losing a long held, undeserved privileged position.


No one's taking away anyone's 'religious freedom'.  As for practising their beliefs, they can do that, too. 


Same-sex marriage is not compulsory; it is very much an opt-in scenario. 


They will not be forced into a gay or lesbian coupling, nor will they be forced to have an abortion 


– nor, should it become law, will they be made to embrace assisted dying, even if their death is agonising and the pain impossible to relieve. 


That's their religious freedom to reject all those things. Equally important is mine, and others right to embrace those examples.
