Still not really doing it for me. Guess I have to see a trailer before I can even begin to be excited...

@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Tigger... Or Rather Tiger.. I'd consider it a double edges sword. One one side, you have the highly rated and loved "The Doctor's Wife", and then on the other, you have the much poorer received, and fanbase dividing "Nightmare in Silver", so he's basically "eh" now. I'm personally skeptical about him returning, hence why I say let him do original monsters only. I don't want Nightmare in Silver 2.0.

@Chris502 The stuff that got cut was probably the stuff that would've actually made it good.
@Gustaff I find it completely bizzare when I see people really hating on the 2-parter. I mean, it's such a fantastic comeback for the Sontarans, and it's the best they've ever been in the show, both narrativly and visually (could use black and silver armor though). This leads into the current problem; the Sontarans are played off as some kind of joke within the Moffat era (Pandorica Opens aside), when it was proven only a few years ago they were a huge threat to humans. It's actually why I wish Cybermen weren't in the Series 8 finale, and it was instead the Sontarans, considering, within the New Series anyway, the Sontarans are much better monsters.

@stargazer0118 @MrRazza has regenerated into Hippy 12 I'd say the kids were the smallest problem that episode had.
Considering Nightmare in Silver, I hope that, if he actually does come back, he stays far, far, FAR away from Classic monsters. Original ideas and monsters, please, it's what made him a great writer to begin with. With lack of female writers, writers are writers, regardless of gender. If a writer has an amazing idea, let them on board! I love The Sontaran Stratagem/The Poison Sky (much more than Strax's continuous reappearances), so the more female writers, or writers in general, the merrier.
@Switcharoo @SonicTheHedgehogRules These replies though, brings a pure smile to my face, XD

I'm one of those people who adore's Clara. She's the collective spirit of every previous New Series companion, but with the added benefit of actually being written in a manner that can't really make her an annoying character. She's always a joy to watch, and considering the 12th Doctor, is a PERFECT contrast. Well, I feel this anyway. She has a very interesting story arc, and currently, I'm loving the Clara/Danny relationship, because it's the best relationship portrayed on Doctor Who. Listen and Kill The Moon were probably my favourite 2 episodes for her, because her character changes in a way we haven't seen, and I'm loving ever moment. This is why I feel Series 8 is just so close to perfection, something I haven't seen since Series 1. The way I see it is like this, if people really hate Clara so much that it bothers the enjoyment of the show, I say those people should maybe have a break until Clara leaves. I mean, nobody is forcing you to watch Doctor Who, right? I'm sure plenty of people did that when Tennant left, or when Smith left. But this is just me, really.

Mummy on the Orient Express. By literally 0.05%. Both of them are absolutely superb, stunning, excellent pieces of television glory, but it's Mummy that takes that top spot for me. Seriously, they're both REALLY amazing stories, so nothing against either. Also, please bring Jamie Mathieson back for Series 9, this guy needs to bring out more amazingness.

@Master Michael Moon I'm always surprised how people can name Doctor Who soundtrack pieces. For me, if the tracks aren't repeated constantly (I Am The Doctor, 12th Doctor's theme as examples), it just disappears from my mind completely.
@SulaymanKhan Hang on, didn't Season 8 end nearly 40 years ago...? I'm confused.
Gotta love that 80's TARDIS door noise. And that amazing iPad cameo! XD

Oh Series 8, you never stop being so amazingly fantastic. Also, insert obvious iPad cameo. Oh production team. =')
Fantastic cover, and fantastic extras. I think the BBC have learned not to include exclusives to other regions. When everyone gets the same thing, we all experience it the same way!

@Meh Meh Meh Meh Meh is in the Secret Play! Shh! Faith is a strong word to associate with things. Not really my fault I have the opinions I have, just like everyone else. I wouldn't say I'm whining, more so I'm being very passionate about them, because every other Classic monster came out great into the New Series (the Silurian design can be accepted due to characterization), whereas the Cybermen have suffered since day one. I mean, our first glimpse of Cybermen in the New Series weren't even proper Cybermen. Doesn't that just make you wonder? You're right, I haven't see the story, but considering Nightmare in Silver, my hopes aren't up. For Cybermen anyway, looking immensely forward to the story.

It isn't that, whatever that is. Dark Dimension is what would've been instead of Dimensions in Time. Worth a look into when you're bored.

@The Finn @SonicTheHedgehogRules @The Living Angel / is Regenerating I'm personally imagining the Dark Dimension Cybermen right now. Good lord, the face on them.
@Amy is uniting the Earth Kingdom! Well at the very least they could give these scripts to Big Finish, or make another animated episode, like The Infinite Quest and Dreamland. I wish they did another one of those, I quite enjoyed both! Or they could just hire the guy who did the Doctor Who Fan Anime to remake that on a bigger budget. That would work very well. ^_^
@The Finn @SonicTheHedgehogRules @The Living Angel / is Regenerating It wouldn't have sellotape on the handles, for one.
@The Finn @The Living Angel / is Regenerating Yeah, they had their hands showing. That was is though, the rest was all 60's cheap goodness!
@The Living Angel / is Regenerating @The Finn That's a panning shot from the Doctor Who Fan Anime! Well, in reverse, because you see the eye and it zooms out to the Cyberleaders face, but that's basically it.
@The Living Angel / is Regenerating I have a picture of a Moonbase/Tomb of the Cybermen Cyberman cross section, and it basically shows what the insides of one should be. Shame I can't remember where I got it from, cus it's really detailed.
@the Doctor's euphonium @SonicTheHedgehogRules The Pandorica Opens is slightly different, I feel, because it basically confirms that the modern Cybermen, or the Cybusmen if you prefer, don't actually need internal organics to function. I find it quite funny actually, considering the fact that Nightmare in Silver continues the trend. If they were proper Cybermen, removal of the head would just kill them instantly. Don't you miss that?
1 week, 2 days ago on Dark Water Official Synopsis
@VictorWong1 @Ottoman14 I've been wanting an episode like that for years. I'm genuinely surprised it hasn't been done yet. The Classic Cybermen vs the Cybus Cybermen. I'd totally enjoy that.
@Sharaz_Jek @SonicTheHedgehogRules @Gustaff I suppose Handles could be considered in that regard, but he isn't an organic character, nor did he appear in multiple episodes, so that probably discounts him. Also, I wouldn't say Amy and Rory dying counts, because they kinda didn't. So there's that.
@GalaxyEyes @SonicTheHedgehogRules @Gustaff I wouldn't count those, I mean, they basically LIVED to death off screen, that's like, normal people dying.
@Scootersfood has 66 Seconds to live... @SonicTheHedgehogRules @Gustaff Amy and Rory don't count. They didn't die right after they were sent back. I don't count that one.
@Amy is uniting the Earth Kingdom! I'm always surprised to hear how drafts of certain episodes sound much better than what we actually got. What's up with that?
@Gustaff When was the last time an important character, that wasn't an echo of Clara, died? I can't even remember.
Hmm, Moffat's starting to reassure me much more about the finale. Let's hope he can deliver a fantastic end to an already perfect Series.
@Ottoman14 @VictorWong1 Thing is, if they become so robotic, they become rather generic and boring. I mean, you need to know there's at least something in there. Besides, it's not necessarily the appearance of a monster that should scare someone, more so the concept of it. The thing that makes Cybermen terrifying, for me anyway, is that they think they're saving people. It's tragic, and really works well. Series 2 understood that, for sure, not really the rest of the New Series.
I would be so so happy if that actually turned out to be what happens. That sounds amazing!
Well, I hope he has the same general idea of scary as most of the fanbase do. For me, every episode he's written since The Snowmen as bee absolutely superb, so I guess he might pull out something good. I still have my doubts though.
Yeah, I type alot. Should stop doing that...
I'm really excited to see how this story plays out, it's sounding great.
What I'm not excited for is the poor excuse they have for Cybermen. After Nightmare in Silver, all hope for even an average Cyberman story has been killed for me. The cameos means nothing withi the Moffat episodes, because Moffat hardly uses them effectivly at all. It's a real shame too, because I have a small feeling Seris 8 will miss the perfection mark because of them.
Well, at the very least, just the very least, they can stop making them say "Delete", "Upgrade", and remove all the horrible tropes introduced NiS (head/limb removed (which was ABSOLUTELY ridiculous), overpoweredness, ability to overcome any weakness, that stupid emotional Cyber-Planner, if you can even call it that), then maybe I can be more accepting of their current form.
Obviously the Classics are better, and that's just how it's going to be, IMO.
Mediocre is putting nicely, isn't it? =P
Synopsis is more interesting that the acompaning image, if I can be completely honest.
This basically cemented it as an interesting episode. It's playing with the TARDIS science! LOVE THAT!

@PCAriza @YaelMoise is glad they mentioned the goddess @ Notsosmartguy likes watching "Clara Who" Power to you for not liking Series 8. I'm certain it isn't everyone's up of tea, especially with Capaldi's older casting.
@joe4 @SonicTheHedgehogRules Right, I never typed in a way that made me sound like I'm telling people to stop watching, absolutely not. I'm suggesting that, if people do not like Clara's current direction within the program, and the upcoming episode, well, maybe they should just skip out Flatline if they despise her so much. Nobody is telling you to watch it or not, but if you wish to save yourself the raging, then maybe it's best you skip this week's instalment.
I don't care who does or doesn't like Clara, it's your opinion, and more power to you for that opinion. What I get tired of seeing is the consistent negativity on Clara's character. First she has no character development, people complain, then she gets loads of character development, people complain she's the centre of the show. Liven up people, it's one character. She's probably be gone eventually, just hang on.
I guess I'm sorry for at least trying to stop the negativity. I mean, reading through the comments I'm seeing people genuinely upset, I was only trying to stop further people getting upset.
And don't tell me to grow up, please. It's very underwhelming to read that.
I'm not trying to start a fight, I'm trying to get everyone back on topic, because most of the comments I'm reading are mostly about this Clara Who business, and I came here to discuss the episode with a positive light, not one character because of one line NOBODY understands the context of.
