@The Living Angel is Regenerating I agree, No one should be giving a score 1. Conversely I don't think people should be giving a 10 either, What about when a better episode comes along?

@ Notsosmartguy Agent of C.L.A.R.A. I wish the "hate" word wasn't dug out every time someone disagrees with another opinions. I can probably speak for most of us when I say that I don't hate anything about Doctor Who. I also try to never use that word myself although not always successful.
Having said that I like your idea of teenage companion :)

@ Notsosmartguy Agent of C.L.A.R.A. Why's that? Have you seen it or something? As long as they actually serve a purpose and can act to some degree I'll be fine with it. There are a few example of children who I wasn't keen on like Cloe Webber, George, Cyril Arwell or Angie & Artie :)

@EvilZygonRabbit Hey, I like that idea. A companion turning bad, I don't think that's happened before and could be incredibly interesting. Do you think Missy is Clara or someone else like Miss Hartigan?

@Ariel in Space Yes, It shows that the ratings mean nothing about the popularity of the show. For example Love & Monsters, Fear Her and Daleks in Manhatten rated higher than Blink(6.6m). In fact only 4 episodes in the first 5 seasons rated lower than Blink

Yes, I get it. You’re excited. When can I go home?: Clara

Anyone know what Rigsy meant by this ?
1 day, 1 hour ago on Flatline Review
I'm really liking this writer, he seems to get what the show is about. The pace and the humour is great as well as the clever resolutions. Surrendering to the Mummy and using the monsters own power to restore the Tardis was brilliant. He doesn't seem to give the background characters any lines though, Not so noticeable in Flatline but in Mummy it really stands out that none of the other scientists on the train say a word.
What is it with trains anyway, He must be a trainspotter :)

Really enjoyed the episode It was lots of fun. I found myself liking Rigsy alot, More than Danny and I think the Doctor did too. When the Tardis was stuck on the tracks I was thinking "Come on Doctor use your hand" It was a very funny scene. The only error was the way he stood it upright, Against all the laws of physics.
As usual I have to view a few more times before rating it but it will be high :)

@Hibernus That's great, Maybe next time put a comb in your pocket. Remember they're bigger on the inside :)
@Old Whovian Agreed, A female Doctor would ruin it for me. I've been hoping for years to have a more masculine doctor. Someone physically imposing like the 4th Doctor, I remember being quite blown away when he casually throws the Morbius monster over his shoulder and swaggers off :)

What a wonderful article. I think my love for art and Doctor Who started at about the same time and I remember the first time I saw a book on Vincents art I was blown away. So much so that as a teenager I bought a print of my favorite piece "Irises" and I still have it.
BTW: I have recently seen a brilliant documentary called "Inside the Mind of Leonardo" which stars Peter Capaldi as Leonardo and he is wonderful in it. I urge everyone to see it, You don't even have to be art fan as Leonardo was so much more and Peter is mesmerising :)

This should be another fun episode
Well that had the desired effect, I want one now. It has to come with the Doctor though :)

Sounds very interesting, A little bit of Logopolis and The Lodger in there. Looks like Clara is finally going to learn why it's so hard to be the Doctor and stop with the selfishness. Lets hope there's more to this back story than that as it's a bit soapy at the moment
5 days, 4 hours ago on Flatline Advance Review
Well this one seemed more difficult to rate than ever, Great monster, set, wardrobe, cast and resolution. I only had a few minor issues, The monster is on screen for too long which diminishes it's effectiveness and the lighting could have been a bit lower. The amount of time spent on the Clara domestics (as the 9th Doctor would say) is starting to get a bit much for Doctor Who as it's only a short show to start with it leaves little time for the story. Danny is starting to get annoying as he seems so wet, I do feel that something is lined up for Danny though that may change my views :)
9/10+ (My highest score yet)

What an enjoyable episode with great acting again especially Frank Skinner and I was surprised to see him invited aboard the Tardis. The Mummy was a very effective monster and well if not underused. Was shocked when the Doctor pulled out a cigarette case only to be delighted at what it contained. Foxes was obviously a distraction to confuse fans as I would not have even noticed her otherwise, She was onscreen for no more than a few seconds. Anyway I wil have to watch it a few more times before scoring it but it could be very high :) Plenty of great lines as usual...

I think the most important thing with a cyberman is the MAN part. They should not move robotically and should never be cgi. Instead they they should be obviously converted humans, and their voices should be more human which would be much creepier :)
