I for one absolutely ADORE that hoodie, and it returning for Series 9 is awesome for me! I mean, you can't say you yourself haven't got some hoodies you wear every so often. Isn't it so damn cool to see a TV hero looking not so much like an eccentric, or a wizard, but like one of us! It puts a massive perspective on things when you look at it from that point of view.

You've hurt me today. I cannot decide between 2 fantastic actors. Ah for god's sake...
One must come out victorious, and I believe it to be Mr. Eccleston, by the tiniest of fractions. They're both so damn fantastic though, I love 'em equally. Such brilliance and majesty brought to a beloved role.

@Gouder 'lycan of the underworld' master It actually kinda reminds me of those big robot things from the BBC show "2110", or whatever it was called. I mean the reused some robots from that show for Dinosaurs on a Spaceship and Rings of Akhaten, so it reminds me alot of that.

Well, for me, this can be rather easy, however, I feel like voting for my obvious one would shun the other.
9 is such a fantastic Doctor, and it's a shame his era was cut short so quickly. He will remain to be a fantastic Doctor, but this round will go to 10, being my second favourite Doctor, and the one who really introduced me into the show. Can't deny both Eccleston and Tennant put their absolute souls into their characters, as did every other Doctor. Great stuff. ^_^

@supermoff I really enjoy Boom Town too. Probably due to my constant rewatches back when l was younger, and when all I had was Doctor Who was Series 1 Volume 4 for and Series 2 Volume 4. So much rewatching. So much Love and Monsters... >_<
Hmm, creative differences seem to really be a big problem within the entertainment industry. I mean, if you remember that whole fiasco with Ant-Man, this is rather comparable. It's a real shame, one can easily imagine Eccleston doing the standard 3 years and really going out with a bang.
Ah well, the comics will fill the void very well.

Sony being the distributors though? That's rather worrying. I mean, if they have no idea what they're doing with Spider-Man, it makes you question the reason they'd want to try a very well known and loved brand on something this risky.
Still, if it was just like Day of the Doctor, but a bigger budget, I'd be down for that.

1 week, 2 days ago on Doctor of the Decade: Face-Off #4
See, and I thought yesterday's vote was brutal. This is on an entirely different scale.
The Tenth Doctor, who was my first real Doctor, one I connected with really well, and proves to be an inspiration to me, and the Twelfth Doctor, who is quickly becoming my favourite of the New Series, and who's run of episodes so far have been all fantastic. Blimey...
I think I'm going to have to go with the Tenth Doctor in this one. At this point, 10 and 12 are so equal to me, but I feel that the deciding factor (and you'll think I'm really weird for saying this) will actually be the second 10th Doctor Big Chief Studios figure, which is planned for release in October. I mean, seeing that again reminded me how much I really like the Tenth Doctor. He's just so fantastic! The weirdest things can trigger memories from the past, it's very odd indeed.
The Twelfth Doctor is beyond amazing, but the Tenth Doctor for me is on an entirely different level. Well, when I say different, I mean slightly above. By one.
@James Nash Even with the Daleks not present, the characters would be talking about them for like 30% of the plot. One of those avoidable things, it seems. =P
Davros returning for the finale would be awesome! I just beg them to bring Davros back, we have no idea what happened to him after Journey's End! And I utterly refuse to believe he died.

This one is actually genuinely difficult. But at the end of the day, it seems one must come above the other.
11! I feel I really connected with the 11th Doctor as a character. Watching his entire era from start to finish was a real joy to do. You could really see him evolve into this quirky mad character into a more subtle and caring person. He felt like you best mate, your mentor, your ever shinning guiding light of illumination throughout all the struggles you may face through life. A quick smile, a pull of a lever, and off you went, flying through time and space without a care or thought to where or when you would end up. He fit the role so perfectly, it's an unbelievable match made in heaven.
I love you dearly Chris, but Smith is just that ever tiny bit better.
1 week, 3 days ago on Doctor of the Decade: Face-Off #3
I doubt Daleks would be a part of this considering this rumour is set decades before Davros even had his accident.
Daleks do not need to be present for Davros to appear. The audio story "Davros" is a perfect example of it, and I wish they adapted it for TV, as they did with Jubilee.
1 week, 4 days ago on Series 9 To Open With “Darkest ever plot”?
I won't deny that Series 9 won't be arc heavy, it's just this rumour is a massive streach of the imagination, not to mention it sounds exactly like a Genesis reboot.
Besides, Davros can't die! Iconic character immunity!
I've just remembered that Big Finish's "I, Davros" series basically covered young Davros quite well. Seems almost pointless to do this. Still, if it happens, it happens. Just don't mess with that series, it's a really well done insight into Davros' early life.
Look, I'll be the first person to say that I'm absolutely BEGGING for Davros to make a return. He's my absolute favourite villain! It's a complete travesty he hasn't come back yet, and it pains me to see his absense.
However, after reading this rumour, this is NOT the best approach to go with. It's decent enough, but it's basically Genesis of the Daleks reimagined, and I seriously doubt Moffat would do something like that. He's much more original with his ideas, this seems highly unlikely. Not to mention that this is rather dark, even for Moffat. Plot emphasis is much better than shock value, I find.
Still, I do have high hopes for Davros returning, and if the Master were in the same episode? Well then, my dreams are slowly coming true.
2 fantastic actors. 2 amazing Doctors. 2 decisions. One outcome.
Tennant. I love John Hurt's portrayal of the War Doctor to absolute bits, but Tennant for me is just that tiny bit better (not to mention he's my first real Doctor). His song may have ended, but the story goes on forever. Still, the War Doctor is 100% the Doctor, and there ain't anything changing that. Well, except new posters coming out featuring everyone else but him. It makes finding an up to date all Doctors poster for my room an absolute nightmare!
1 week, 4 days ago on Doctor of the Decade: Face-Off #2
I was fair. I gave every Doctor the wonderful 10 they deserve. Yet here I am, forced to choose once more. So I'll make it anti-climactic!
Short answer, the Twelve Doctor will win this one from me as I'm being forced to pick. I love them both, I really ans absolutely do, it's just that if you gotta pick someone, you make a tough decision. Besides, the 12th Doctor really gave the show the kick up the backside it needed to really assert it's ground, not being another handsome fellow with dashing hair and a wonderful smile (although Capaldi probably has all of that and more).
1 week, 5 days ago on Doctor of the Decade: Face-Off #1
You're damn right he's a good Doctor. A great Doctor. No, an Amazing Doctor! 10/10!
He nailed the character so brilliantly, it works so unbelievably well that it almost feels like he's been the Doctor for years! He elevated the quality of all the episodes he was part of, and became the number one stand out feature of all of them. Even In The Forest of the Night is just brilliant because of Capaldi's formidable performance, it works so well! Whilst his era is by no means complete, as it stands now? Well he's got it. He is the Doctor. It just works so well. It's a fantastic time to be a fan right now.
And finally, as it stands for me;
They're all 10 because they deserve the 10, and nothing less. I could never give them anything less, it's just a crime for me. That's just me though.
2 weeks ago on Doctor of the Decade: Rate the Twelfth Doctor
If he continues to have fresh ideas, and if his mind can handle this madness, then I say let him continue by all means. Will be beat JNT's record? I doubt it, but it'll be damn near close to it. If he starts to feel unwelcome or stale, then it's time to put the lid back on the pen and pursue other new projects. He's still got plenty left in him though, I'm certainly not seeing him leave anytime soon. Stick around Moffat, I'm not your biggest fan, but I certainly appreciate everything you've done. Except that.
Personal note: I want the Dalek he's pictured with in the first image. MUST HAVE IT!

2 weeks, 1 day ago on Doctor of the Decade: Rate the War Doctor
10 for 11, and rightfully so.
Fitting in almost instantly as he appeared on screen, he weirdness and quirkiness are probably very relateable attributes, which I feel really makes the character stand out for most. As with the previous 2 Doctors, his era reinvented the old, and established something new and brilliant, and I can easily say that his era is excellent, as is his Doctor. Of course, I didn't cry when he left (too much man power for me =P), but I indeed felt his loss, the show felt slightly weird without him, as it did when he himself replaced the wonderful 10. Now, whilst the 11th Doctor era may have my most hated piece of written entertainment in all of known history and creation in general, his era is indeed such a wonderful thing to watch, one that I can easily jump back into and watch any aspect of again (except that. No way you making me watch it again. Nope. Nu uh. Not happening)
Personal note: I feel Smith will win this vote without really trying. Looking through the comments, he seems to have a much larger amount of praise than 9 and 10. Just an observation.

@Malohkeh @The Lazy Cat Would give me a fantastic opportunity to give Series 7 Amy Pond a wonderfully thin 1.

10 for 10 indeed.
My first real Doctor (besides Peter Cushing, if that counts for something), he really got me into the series, and helped me understand this wonderful universe and all that it offers. At one point he was indeed my favourite Doctor, but that position changed years ago when another certain incarnation with a colourful coat took that spot quite nicely. 10 certainly brings a sense of nostalgia to me, and any reference to him works wonderfully for me.
@Benvenfold @SonicTheHedgehogRules Ah. So he did. But he acted in another! Case enough, I guess. =P
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Mark Gatiss on Whether He’d Be Up for Next Showrunner
Oh wow DWTV, you're gunna get me to vote for each incarnation of the revival? Why do you do this to me >_<
In all fairness, I'm going to vote 10 for all of them, because for me, I cannot like one Doctor over another (except the Sixth Doctor, because ya know, 6 = the best one, obviously. Pure perfection), as they all provide such talent, and bring something dynamic and new to the role, whilst identifying them from the previous one. Like I said, they all get 10s from me, because they're all perfect, and were all born to play the part. I just fail to understand how, besides having a personal favourite Doctor (because everyone has one they like the most, like me), how you can not like one Doctor as much as another, or even hate them?
That's just me though. 10/10 for 9.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Doctor of the Decade: Rate the Ninth Doctor
He's easily the most likely to do it. He, alongside Moffat, were the 2 most recurring writers in RTD's era, and it seems to fit really well Mark taking over. Victory is a personal favourite for Mr. Gatiss, so I'd have no issues in seeing him take over. Not to mention he'd fill it full of that wonderful 70s charm.
Hmm, that actually might be bad for some people. Well, he'll do a good job regardless, if he ever does become the successor.

@ilyootha @SonicTheHedgehogRules @The Finn is excited for audio Kate Stewart! @DW_girl I don't think borrowed is the correct word to use. I'd more see is as copied, because these attributes mean little to nothing, really. The gold only affected the "Cyber-Planner", and I struggle to even call it that because it's played off horribly compared to the Classics. With the Tombs? Well, anyone can have tombs, they're hibernation pods in reality, and anyone can have those during the time period its set in.
I understand how your viewing it, but I doubt many people will see it the way you have. I'm taking it how it's written/said, and it sounds really silly.
Minor attributes and technology don't really mean anything when these Cybusmen completely miss the point of what a Cyberman is; a cyborg, not a computer/robot. The thing that makes Cybermen, and even Daleks in the same regard, is that they look like robots, and give off the impression of giving robots, but once you understand the fundamentals and ingenuity put in to create one, you see a more horrifying, nightmarish truth, one that is why they persist.
They haven't accomplished this yet, not in my eyes anyway, and referencing the Classic Series does nothing. They need to build off what was established, not taking the best bits and shoving it into the mess we currently have.

It's a permanent fixture in the entertainment business. Bit like Super Mario games.
@ilyootha @SonicTheHedgehogRules @The Finn is excited for audio Kate Stewart! @DW_girl I'm just giving a general view on the subject, not targeting at any one person that said something.
However, what I do find interesting is your mention of the Mondasian technology that is used. In AGMGTW and Closing Time, they don't have any of this. What they DO have, however, is weapons used by the freedom fighters of another universe. The on set explanation is obvious, but the in universe explanation is not, hence why they're the Cybus ones, and nothing else. The Tombs? Well, you've got me there. Obviously the ones in Tomb look infinitly better, but the reference is nice, I guess? I do also find interesting your mention of Cybermats, considering these Cybermats have more organic components than their masters, and I find that greatly ironic.
The design featured in NiS, in my honest view, takes two inspirations in it's design; the first is the face, mostly based off the Invasion/Revenge/Cybus face, which I do greatly like, and the other being the arm canon, taken from Doomsday. The rest? Nah, I can't see anything of familiarity in it. It really does look like Iron Man, and the OPness they display doesn't help the design work, in my eyes.
I'm surprised how you find that "Tom Baker Universe" comment as making sense, because for me it sounds like the maddest thing I've ever read in my life. He could instead refer to either Revenge or Earthshock, both of which take place following the Cyber-Wars, instead of saying something that implies if a real place of fiction (although I'd totally read anything set within this Tom Baker Universe, it would just be narrated by him in his Little Britain voice, imagine that!)
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Torrent Doctor Who (Legally)
@ilyootha @The Finn is excited for audio Kate Stewart! @DW_girl I love the fact that, even though they look identical, people just assume that because the Cybus logo is gone, it's a completely different set of Cybermen. They speak the same, act the same, one logo difference does nothing. It's like claiming the Cybermen between Earthshock and The Five Doctors are completely different, because in T5D, they lost the moon boots. You see how rather silly that might seem?
In my own personal view, I believe we finally got Mondasian Cybermen in Dark Water/Death in Heavan. I would say Nightmare in Silver instead, but, to be entirely honest, NiS is pathetic, and doesn't even try to distinguish either faction. I might sound contradictory, but no effort is put into actually making them Mondasian. However, I feel the Series 8 finale ones do the job the Classics did (or at the very least the closest we'll ever get until the next redesign/voice change/Moffat leaves), showcasing that something, living and breathing, is present inside the suits, instead of feeling like the generic robots they have been since their, and I say this vaguely, "reintroduction", in 2006.
Obviously this is my own point of view, and I probably sound ridiculous, but then again, Neil Gaiman DID say the Cybermen in Nightmare in Silver were from the "Tom Baker Universe", so I'm unsure which one of us sounds more ridiculous.
I'll stick with my complete New Series on DVD. Minus Last Christmas, that is. Not because I hate the episode, but because eww vanilla releases. I await the Series 9 box set before I have it.

"It is a misty winters morning. A familiar van is driving along the road, it's driver, determined to complete his job. He is ready for any situation, be it rain, snow, or sunshine. He prepares very delicately, very precisely, making sure he has all the correct tools to use during his hard days work. Wiping clean his brow, he begins the arduous task it repairing a dangerous road. This takes many hours, and as a man of termination, he continues, without rest, without taking a breath. He knows what he is doing, he knows how to do it, and by gumble, he knows it. He won't let any force, be it human or alien, interfere with his protection of the roads of the human race."
"He is a council man. His name... his name is Kel. A legend among the council workers of England. They once say he faced a most terrible monster, and her spiky headed friend. Some say he defeated them with a simple glare, others say he defeated them through sheer council martial art skills. All that we know for sure, he survived, and the monster and her companion disappeared. From this moment on, he became almost a myth. A folks tale. One you tell council workers is a god amongst his peers."
"During the winter months, you might look out of your window, during the night. Maybe you'll see a familiar van, with a friendly face in the drivers seat. You will know who he is, and he will give a friendly smile, and disappear into the night, doing exactly what he was born to do..."
"...fix that road."
