It’s clear to see that over the last few months series eight has somewhat split opinions
Doctor who is always like that but I would have thought that it was less so with this Doctor. I feel he has taken the Doctor back to basic original style. Every now and then someone says "He Is Dark" Well I just think he has decided not to be a human in this incarnation and act more like a timelord. Also the humour is fantastic, I find that at the end of some episodes this season my cheeks are sore from grinning the whole way through. Love him

So why, I ask, do these same people take selfies with the Cybermen when they emerge from St Paul’s?
They were undercover Unit operatives
1 week, 3 days ago on 2nd Opinion: Death in Heaven
Well I've watched it 4 times now and come away feeling different about
it each time. The first half is a bit slow but the last half is absolutely riveting. I must say that the scene when the Doctor trys to find
Galifrey and it wasn't there is amazing. It was so terrifying seeing the Doctor with that intense face bashing his fists against the console, I have never seen do anything like that. Then there's that wonderful reunion where they both lie to each other successfully.
Clara: Why don’t you like hugging, Doctor?
The Doctor: Never trust a hug, it’s just a way to hide your face.
Overall even though the Cybermen were poorly utilised again, Osgoods death was just because Moff said "Why Not" and The Brig was shown as a Cyberman I still rate it quite high.
My favorite finale since season onemainly as there were no cringeworthy speeches from the Doctor :)
1 week, 3 days ago on Rate & Discuss Death in Heaven
What he says is correct however the BBC would be more interesed in how it's faring against the opposition. If less people are watching Doctor Who when it airs and more are watching some reality show then they will consider ratings have dropped :)
Personally I don't care as long as it keeps going

@Ottoman14 Wow, I've read some wild statements but that's a beauty. IMO It's a very average finale and the love story is dull. Not a big fan of Moff but atleast he hasn't made that sort of error yet
@Switcharoo OK, Mary Whitehouse then
She has received acclaim from fans and critics alike, with many commenting that she “made the role her own.
I thought she way over doing it, IMO John Simm went too far but i haven't seen anything like this since the legendary Soldeed :)

Oh dear there is no middle ground for me, I just don't like it. When I felt guilty about that I just imagined Philip Hinchecliffes face if it was pitched to him back in the day
I'm not sure about her, It seems like instead making the part her own she is emulating John Simm. I just don't find I can take an insane Master seriously, He/She is supposed to be the Doctors equal.
1 week, 5 days ago on Your Verdict on Dark Water & Episode Ranking
I have to agrree with most of what you say, It's seems that Moff was a too ambitious and tried to squeeze to much in here. For example Osgoods death scene was bordering on ridiculous. As others have said why is Missy left conscious(The Master secured by a pair of handcuffs only?), Why when she threatens Osgood did she not check her restraints? and above all those 2 guards behind make no move to stop her which is a real headshaking moment for me.

Cyber-programming being overcome by love was saccharine in “Closing

twice in the same episode.
Don't forget that Cyberconversion has been defeated before and not just by love but also "Duty to Queen and Country" by the very ineresting Yvonne Hartman :)

I wouldn't presume to place Peter against all other Doctors yet as 1 season certainly isn't enough. I would put him 1st out of all the new Doctors but where he slots in with my favorites is still up in the air although top 4 would be a certainty :)
I've been wondering about the Seb character and it just hit me that maybe he was like the Osgood character a fan of the Doctor but not just a fan maybe he represented us the internet fans. When the Doctor makes it to the Tardis Seb say's "Permission to squeeeeeeeeee" and Moffat pulverises him through Missy :)
1 week, 6 days ago on Rate & Discuss Death in Heaven
I have a feeling that Missy's weapon may not pulverise people at all, It didn't really fit with the whole "Using the dead for a new race of cybermen" scenario.

I've been hoping for many years that someone in Doctor Who would take inspiration from the Alien movie, It would be great to get a real fright from this show after all these years. I hope the monster is kept hardly visible right through which in my opinion increases the effect :)

Utopia doesn't even come close, It doesn't thrill me very much at all. I feel that it was let down by the writing mostly.

What amazed me most about the phone call was the fact that she seemed to feel no guilt which sort of fits your theory. It's also interesting that stepping in front of a car was how her parents met only her mother managed to save her father.
I always thought that Katy and Roger had a wonderful rapport and really lit up the screen together. In fact I think Jo Grant is a very underrated companion, She was so brave. In Planet of the Daleks she sneaks into a Dalek base and spys on them without getting caught, real edge of the seat stuff when your little :)

This episode gets 9/10 from me for making me go WHAT! and for that entire scene with Clara.

friendship, you betrayed everything that I've ever stood for. You let me
down!Clara: Then why are you helping me?The Doctor: Why? Do you think that I care for you so little that betraying me would make a difference?
