I'm fairly certain that this was the worst Sontaran impression I have ever heard which is a shame as it is coming from the Dan Starkey himself.

@Djornad @Gustaff No. Haven't played telltale. Honestly though, I want the Japanese to make the next DW game. English writers, Japanese makers, American budget. That's what I'm holding out for.

Just heard from a buddy in the UK. The Doctor and the Dalek = dud
Seems I was right. Just some random dialogue from Peter Capaldi with no real story. On the gameplay, the guy told me that it was 'indeed made for CBBC' as it is ridiculously easy to solve and just reeks of education.
That doesn't surprise me as it was what the game was designed for, but I also get that there are quite a few games that hide their 'education' within the game to make learning unnoticeable. TDATD unfortunately is not like that it seems.
I get this is a family program, but there are also quite a lot of mature viewers. How about making something worthwhile for the WHOLE family and not just the under 13s? I really don't mind spending money to buy the game so you don't have to make a cheap freely available one. I'll settle for an expensive good one also. Out of the two games I was looking forward to (the other being Legend of Korra), both turned into a letdown. In Korra's case, I lost money since I had to buy it and it was just the endless runner mini-game that was good.
This is why I stick to Final Fantasy. Takes a hell of a long time to make, burns a hole in your wallet, but they make 'em good! They make 'em great!

@MrRazza is regenerating @Gustaff Those people have some great PR departments. Even the Doctor was
scared. If I was him, I'd let the thing roam free. Not as though it can
kill a planet full of moving people. Maybe if they all stopped, he'd
have a shot. If anything, Blitz should go into demolition.

@Mikeyboss182 He met that soldier guy in Mummy and didn't seem to mind.
Speaking of the Blitz monster from Caretaker...anyone else wonder how a robot described as the most dangerous killing machine ever created only managed to hit one target all episode - and that target was STANDING STILL!
@sontaran17 @Gustaff I have read the book. But given the choice of Briggs or Hurt, the answer will always be Hurt. I don't think we're ever going to get any more with him as the Time War incarnate.

Well, I am partly devestated and I'm afraid that it is now up to me to partly devestate you lot:
John Hurt will not be voicing the War Doctor in the BBC audio adaption of Engines of War. Scheduled for Dec 18 2014, the novel will be read by Nicolas Briggs.
I'm pretty sure we all wanted Nick + John to read/act out the story since now we'll only get Dalek voices, but no War Incarnation voice. I feel like a fish that's just been gutted. It was a long shot obviously, but still when one hopes this much, hurts like hell (pun intended).

@Salyavin @TARDlSkey Try this, might cheer you up. It's short, but funny: http: //www.dailymotion.com/video/x1bbi6p_a-chick-named-kathy-bicycle-thief_fun
@doctorwhotvuk Well, apart from the obvious that this site does not run DW, the man makes a good point. I can't see any companion living up to that bar set, nor do I want to as I've seen with Clara - doesn't work for me.
Though others will claim 'I will never compare the two', most will end up saying 'yeah, but Clara did more than [insert future companion]' and will judge the new person because the shadow cast is just too enormous to live up to. There have been lots of brilliant companions who did nothing *important* for the Doctor and ended up being fan favorites. I want one of those types to be the next person in the TARDIS.
@doctorwhotvuk So one episode splitting fans wasn't enough, they had to go for two?
Does Danny at least confront Clara about her lying? How about the Doctor? Do he and Clara have a standoff about her lying about Danny to him? You know - the stuff that usually end realistic relationships or are all these things handled off-screen...again?

@sontaran17 @Gustaff Missed the bit about CBBC. Well, still have one game to look forward to, but I will play a demo of TDATD and see if I like it.
2 days, 16 hours ago on The Doctor and the Dalek
The Doctor teaming up with a Dalek? Not sure how good that is going to be.
I do hope that this game features a lot of dialogue that progresses the story and isn't just one of those games with a brill VA attached, yet you have to read most of the story and they have like four lines. The Adventure Games balanced gameplay with storytelling nicely.
Along with Legend of Korra video game, this is going to be just as much fun to play I hope.
@TARDlSkey @Gustaff @LGwalchmai95 Well, we know Moffat is staying for S9, so maybe bring Mathieson back for 2 (no 3 more episodes) next year and then hand over the keys to the TARDIS. Nice little transition, though I don;t want to see Moffat go.

@TARDlSkey @LGwalchmai95 I want Mathieson to take over from Moffat one day. The guy gets the creativity and Doctorness that this show encompasses. 2D monsters? that's some serious originality
Don't waste your time. Not even worth our effort.

The lowest yet? Finding it very hard to believe. Mummy and Flatline were phenomenon. Night in the Forest has such an uphill battle that it's not even funny!
3 days, 17 hours ago on Doctor Who Series 8 UK Ratings Accumulator
Now we approach the Dark Horse of Series 8: In The Forest of The Night.
Penning Mummy and Flatline back to back has really raised the bar for an episode that was already fighting just to get fan respect. Majority don't like the whole 'kid' episode idea so ITFOTN will have to pull a miracle to beat it's immediate two predecessors.

@Scribey @Gustaff @stargazer0118 The more knowledge you obtain, the harder TV becomes.Trust me.
Also, that is about as inaccurate as you can get.
I haven't heard the thing about the 70s though.
@LGwalchmai95 @Mark McCullough I always assumed it was predestination or destiny. I believe in destiny - except when it travels back and inspires the Doctor from childhood. Everything else, might be destiny.
@stargazer0118 @Gustaff @Scribey This is a problem. What inspires someone to watch something if the driving force isn't appealing to them?
@Scribey @Gustaff @stargazer0118 I;m not joking. Worst technobabble ever:
The "scientific" explanations in this story gets steadily more and more
insulting, from the Doctor's early blatherings about "strange matter" to
his ludicrous statement that "if that asteroid exploded, it would set
off a blast of gamma rays equivalent to a supernova", but the worst
example (before the Technobabble Hell of part 4) is the Doctor's "I
broke the second law of thermodynamics". The idea that a fundamental law
of the universe could be violated imply by using the wrong kind of
plastic in an experiment (!) is laughable even for Pip and Jane Baker.
When something manages to crush my suspension of disbelief, they've lost the fight and I can endure a lot before my SOD fails. I do enjoy McCoy and 'Mel' conversations though.
@stargazer0118 @Gustaff @BollingerKnickers huh? I meant the scene at the start where he forces her to ask nicely. I find scenes like that very entertaining because it subverts normal DW tropes.
@stargazer0118 @Gustaff @Scribey I'm not a fan of 9 (biased because of Chris' treatment of the show) and I haven't seen that much of 3 - only his highlight stories.
I can understand giving us a very 'bad' character that isn't easily likable, but it feels like it's being shoved down our throats. That I don't like. Don't MAKE me dislike him. Trust me, I'll find something that I disagree on.
@Scribey @Gustaff @stargazer0118 Time and the Rani features some of the worst technobabble ever that just f***s with science on a molucular level.
I got Leisure Hive as present. Apart from Tom and Lalla, not much else saves it for me. Though Delta and the Bannermen is moderately better than Paradise Towers.
@stargazer0118 @BollingerKnickers He does have his moments. I like him in Into the Dalek where he told off that soldier in his TARDIS at gunpoint.
@stargazer0118 @Scribey They pulled a Colin Baker on half the fandom it seems. Pulled a Colin Baker (that's trademark now)
@Scribey @Gustaff @stargazer0118 Masque of Mandragora is awfully boring,
Time and the Rani,
Mindwrap (because I hate what they did to Peri),
Revenge of the Cybermen,
The Hand of Fear
Face of Evil
Nightmare of Eden
The Leisure Hive (0/10)
Four to Doomsday
Invasion of Dinosaurs
Both peladon stories
The Time Monster
Those are some of the worst. Complete waste of my time and money
@Scribey @Gustaff Oh sorry, I meant Omega gets developed. I can't say much about Five as it spoils it, but Big Finish have kept to the TV Series.
@Scribey @Gustaff @stargazer0118 I don't like Twin Dilemma that much, but Colin and Nicola really bump up it's score. It's not a bad episode, it's just sub-par compared to other openers. I've encountered far worse stories in the classic era. Far worse.
@Scribey @stargazer0118 I really don't mind 12's persona. I find his 99%-annoyed persona quite funny actually. A mix between 9 and 3.
@Scribey @BollingerKnickers What Big Finish does is now land the Doctor in 21st earth even during his 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th incarnations mainly because they now know about the technology of this period.
@Scribey @Gustaff Thanks to Big Finish, there are a lot of solo 5,6,7 and 8 stories. Omega also develops the character to an unbelievable level and it features one of the most spine-chilling cliffhangers ever. It has nothing on Caves of Androzani Ep 3.

Hey guys, a little help please.
I'm trying to think of other major ones, but regarding very very controversial errors in Doctor Who, I can't think of any others apart from "The Doctor's Age" and the "UNIT Dating Controversy". Any other really big ones? It doesn't have to annoy you, just any big ones you can remember.

Just got a really mathematician's answer from Nick Briggs when I asked him:
1) Are there any more plans for 8 after Dark Eyes 4 in 2015?
2) Will Dark Eyes 3 be released early/late November this year?
He gave me a 'yes to both'. So is it early or late November lol?
@ Notsosmartguy Agent of C.L.A.R.A. @Gustaff If I was a genius, I'd have solved it by now. As for too much time on my hands, not really. I limit myself to spending between 1-1.5 hours trying to crack these. If I don't, then tough. I have other stuff to do today, but I know a few people who look to me to solve these things, even though my success rate is 65:35.

How: Did an abnormal number to letter substitution where ever multiple numbers equal the same letter.

How: Baconian cipher in which every letter is A, every number is B.

@yoshfiction @LGwalchmai95 @BollingerKnickers I'm feeling you man. I really do.
My advice: Just power on through. Avoid comments, just read the article (unless you want to avoid that too), treat DW just like a normal show.
DW in my opinion has a lot of competition this year. There are a lot of shows I get more excited over.

@The Finn Just one hiccup for me which brings it down to a 9/10:
nobody think to use paint to track the invisible monster instead of relying on
a very impractical alien gizmo that only works when you’re facing AWAY from
your target and looks as though it could’ve been a real pain to carry around
everywhere? It’s not as if finding some paint buckets would’ve been difficult –
they are staying with a world renowned painter after all!
