Yes, yes she did. Started wearing 11's bow tie and 10's trainers. Her character still remains entirely one dimensional. Meh.

@Gustaff @SonicTheHedgehogRules @Antee991166 Honestly, I forgot Osgood existed until she was announced to return. I remember her as the girl with the 4th Doctor scarf and that's literally her one character trait. The Zygon who took over her had more of a personality.
I see what you mean about you feeling Moffat is making fun of the fans though. Probably why Osgood came back.

Series 8 without a doubt. His Magnus Opium, so far.

5. Series 6A

I really don't like 6B. Just, ugh.
@The Finn, Agent of SPECTRE @stargazer0118 Weird how Moffat didn't reuse that explanation. Worked fine in Time Crash.

No rush. We must savoir the moment and bask in it's glory, otherwise it feels stale and repetitive. Basically the reason I don't rewatch episodes too often, it might lose the appeal for me.
The more the merrier. Doctor Who is diverse and beautiful in all aspects!

You know what's really unfair? I actually consider every episode in Series 8 bloody terrific. Some better than others, but it's super consistent for me. Guess I'll go for either Listen or Mummy on the Orient Express. I honestly can't decide between the 2.

1 week ago on Speculating on Series 9’s Big Cliffhanger (Part 2)
I'm quite surprised the Ice Warriors haven't come back, actually. I recall reading way back before Series 8 even started filming that there were rumors of Gatiss wanting to do an Ice Warrior/Draconian 2-parter story. Not only would the Ice Warriors appear again, but the Draconians too? Really wish this rumor was true, then again, Series 9 does have one 2-parter lined up, so it may be more likely.

1 week ago on Best of 2014 Awards #11: Writer
@ Notsosmartguy @SonicTheHedgehogRules Sometimes I can suspend my disbelief, but there's only so much I'm willing to take before questioning what they were thinking. Looking at you, Rings.
@ Notsosmartguy @SonicTheHedgehogRules Yeah, reading plenty of comments here, people are complaining more about the science, and whilst it is an issue of massive concern, it's entirely believable. Who knows if the Moon in real life is a living, thinking, breathing (erm, maybe) life form?
@The Finn, Agent of SPECTRE @SonicTheHedgehogRules @SpontaneousFork I wonder if the reaction were to be identical if Moffat did the same. Curious thought, isn't it?
It's really unfair picking between Moffat and Mathieson. Series 8 has been seriously good for them. You know what? Give it to the new guy. Mathieson wins for me. Mummy on the Orient Express is just brilliant. Shout out to Peter Harness for Kill The Moon though, that there is one excellent piece of drama.
@SpontaneousFork *cough* Time between The Five Doctors and The Two Doctors *cough*
@Chris Kocher @SonicTheHedgehogRules To be entirely honest, if the Rani or the Valeyard can't be brought back because nobody remembers them, that doesn't really explain why the Great Intelligence was brought back. the GI hardly resembles what he is in the Classic Series, regardless the fact the Snowmen is a prequel or not, and also considering his appearance in Bells of Saint John and Name of the Doctor. Why even bother when the Valeyard and the Rani can basically do the exact same thing, with the benefit of them both being more recent. I guarantee about 90% of the people who watched the Snowmen on original broadcast hadn't a damn clue on who the GI was, and just went with it.
With regards to the Rani's stories, well that's just your opinion. I quite enjoy Mark of the Rani (I love the opening music piece, it's amazing), and whilst Time and the Rani is on the lower spectrum of quality within the series, I still consider it MUCH better than episodes like Timelash and Nightmare in Silver. Just because a story has low ratings with an otherwise interesting and fascinating reason is honestly no reason to never use the character ever again. The character's forgotten? Make them known and memorable! The character had bad stories? Then make a good one! Tired of bringing back Daleks every series? Bring another classic villain out, one that hasn't even had a mention at all. Although, saying that now, I do agree with the first reply to your comment, where a female Master has basically killed a chance at seeing the Rani again.
I'm still hopeful though. Not knowing a character isn't a reason to never use them, isn't that basically the premise of all of Doctor Who?
@IcarusBeDamned @SonicTheHedgehogRules Well I was reading up on the Virgin New Adventures ages ago and I was reading about a sort of bible they had, considering what writers could and couldn't do, and one of them was include the Valeyard because of how confusing he might be. I personally don't consider him confusing at all, but I fear this reasoning could be used again. I'm hopeful though, always wanted the Valeyard to return.
You know, I recall reading up that authors during the 90's put the Valeyard off limits, considering him a huge continuity mess, never to be used in prose because of how confusing he is.
THEN AGAIN, I'm a die hard fan of Trial of a Time Lord, I can't get enough of it (speaking of that, I need to rewatch it, darn real life obligations), so I of course welcome any reference or continuation of anything Season 23 introduced. So much potential is to be had with the Valeyard, one can only dream of the great things that could happen. I mean, we are already passed the 12th incarnation, so why not add to the lore?
Although, saying that, I suspect Moffat might dislike the Valeyard, and I fear like the Rani, will suffer the same fate of not being used because nobody knows them. I'd say the same about the Great Intelligence, but he was brought back, or whatever arbitrary reason. It honestly still confuses me to this day. Just, why...?

I like the one that did that one episode that one time in Series 8. Pretty decent.
I'll be honest, as soon as I saw the title for this vote, the first thought in my head was about 12 selections, of which all were Murray Gold. Overall Series 8 had nice pieces, nicer ones than Series 7, so it has that going for it.

My reason for being excited at his return is the fact that he was the genius mind behind A Town Called Mercy. That alone is enough to make me excited he's doing 2 episodes for Series 9. Currently, they're my most anticipated for Series 9!

1 week, 6 days ago on Neil Gaiman on Nightmare in Silver Reception
@the Ultimate Notsosmartguy @SonicTheHedgehogRules @Gustaff @supermoff I'm pretty sure the budget is hardly an issue, considering they redesigned Daleks and Silurians in Series 5, yet managed to have such a massive roster of monsters for the finale.
@Gustaff @the Ultimate Notsosmartguy @SonicTheHedgehogRules @supermoff WHY WAS THIS PREQUEL NOT MADE.
@supermoff @Gustaff Out of curiosity, considering what was said in Nightmare in Silver, I find it curious how they didn't anticipate another Cyberman attacking them. Couldn't this be something to think of? At some stage in the war humans must've stolen Cyber weaponry, right?
@the Ultimate Notsosmartguy @SonicTheHedgehogRules @supermoff @Gustaff Ugh, I can't stand that explanation for lazy writing. I refuse to believe such a ridiculous statement. They're certainly more Cybus, like 80/20, if you ask me.
@supermoff @Gustaff Doesn't explain the Cybus suits in Nightmare. I mean, the Cybus ones clearly change into the Nightmare ones. Or something like that.
@Gustaff I'd much rather cyborgs with several strengths that counter their weaknesses, compared to boring, empty robots with a Superman syndrome. Of course they can adapt, cyborgs are prone to understanding what they are weak too, but they can't just adapt that quickly, it's laughably terrible.
@supermoff @SonicTheHedgehogRules @the Ultimate Notsosmartguy Interesting that. I might give that 2-parter a rewatch, but I recall not being terribly fond of it. TATM is an entirely separate entity of, well, putting it EXTREMELY lightly, stupidity, so we'll leave that out. I feel their cameo in Time was just fan service, bit like Amy's appearance. There's nothing to them, they just appear for the sake of appearing. Nothing more.
@the Ultimate Notsosmartguy @SonicTheHedgehogRules @supermoff I'd prefer a brilliant monster not come back, if he were to make one. You would have the expectation that the second outing is better than the first, which I personally feel never happened with the Weeping Angels. They just got worse and worse, imo. Blink remains superior, and their only good appearance, to me anyway.
@supermoff Provided it's an original monster. My trust for him with classic monsters has pretty much been destroyed.
Sure, it proved Matt Smith can act. There's no denying his brilliance, excellence, and sheer commitment made the 11th Doctor such a memorable and lovable incarnation to many people, and I personally wanna watch what else Matt Smith will be doing, specifically in the upcoming (and stupidly named) Terminator: Genesys. He's basically my reason to watch the movie, because of how amazing it is.
That being said, it doesn't prevent Nightmare in Silver being the terrible mess it is. It's anti-Cybermen in my eyes, and I feel their subsequent appearances are tainted because of this one, and I mainly attribute it to the design. Many people compare it to Iron Man for a good reason.
People also bring up the children and claim them to be the worst part of the episode, but they're really not. They're so utterly insignificant compared to the episodes problems, I tend to be baffled how people think of the children first, and not the Superman-esque Cybermen. Just, what?

Not necessarily a team up, just the characters meeting and interacting with one another. 2 of the greatest minds in the Universe, and double the pain for the Doctor. It's brilliant!
1 month ago on 51 Years Later: 5 Ways to Make the Daleks Menacing Again
I pretty much agree with all but the first 2. Such a redesign would be rather impossible, considering the people inside, and the catchphrase is iconic, so they might aswell say it whenever. I think the correct thing here is for writers to not overuse it. One could argue that Daleks hardly talking makes them rather creepy and silent, with only a quick "Exterminate" before someone dies. About Davros? Why hasn't he been brought back? As my favourite Who villain, I'm always disappointed it's never Davros, he has such potential, with or without Daleks. Him bring back, especially. I'd love that. Perhaps in Series 9, Davros appears and meets the Master? Imagine that!
