Great article, One of the best Doctors and I wish he could have stayed on a while as well. The one line that always blows me away as it's such a perfect way to see the Doctors true compassion. "Just this once, Everybody lives"

Here's to atleast another 10 years.
When RTD was asked to review Rose after all these years his criticisms were very strange indeed :)
Rose's Pink bedroom (which I didn't even take notice of)
Mickey's little dance (wtf)
You can't see Nelsons column (double wtf)
A see through plastic bag for the lotto. "It’s simply not the sort of bag you’d collect lottery money in":RTD (Now I know he's taking the piss)
Nothing about burping garbage bins or why would Rose take a plastic arm all the way home with her etc.
Gotta love the guy though

What great article and so true. He paved the way for all the actors who took on the role and I just wish more of his stories were found. Legend :)

Easy, DOTD. As others have said the Weepers were pretty well ruined by later appearances so Blink is just a tad dated now. Besides how could the best episode be a Doctor lite?

Vincent and 11th Hour get an equal score from me as they both lose it towards the end, The 11th with that dreadful speech and Vincent with the OTT sentimentalism.

I must say this is the silliest poll I've ever seen. The fact that TDW, MOTOE and Flatine have been knocked out sort of ruins it for me.

Great article, Love that era of Who:)
"The production values of the show have been better than the Classics,
the special effects and also in some instances the monsters from week to
I have to disagree here however. I will admit that modern special effects are better but that doesn't diminish the effort and skill used back in the day. The production values I would consider on equal par and the monsters in classic who were mostly far superior than now, Adipose, Slitheen, Racnoss etc.

Th music in the show seems to be getting more intrusive every season. It's so annoying when you can't hear the dialogue because of the raucus noise overwhelming everything. I find that when the music compliments an episode It hardly registers and just becomes an integral part of the story.

@Classicalbeau Have faith in the massive talent Peter is blessed with. I don't think Moff would be pretentious enough to give him acting lessons and I'm sure Peter wouldn't listen anyway :)
1 week, 3 days ago on The Twelfth Doctor: A Bad Man With A Box?
This a good article and your thoughts on the 12th mirror my own. From his first moments on screen I was enamored with the new Doctor simply because it was obvious that he didn't hate himself any more. Others have said that he is darker whereas I didn't see that, I saw a fresh new Doctor who was back to doing the job in hand and stuff what others think. The Doctor: "Never trust a hug, It's just a way to hide your face"
A Good Man Goes to War but only because it has to be one of them. I think it's only slightly less silly but this series was full of sillyness.

@Deus_Ex_Machina Would love them here as well but I can Imagine they would do the same as everyone else. Show the same old cliched locations like Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Uluru etc. which would annoy the hell out of me. We have places like Kakadu, Pilbara, Lord Howe Island, the Daintree and on and on.

I'm actually shocked about this. As you said, It's only a stones throw from Wales and we do get sick of seeing the same quarries. I imagine that politics played it's part in the Classic series but why haven't they been there in the new series?
And there was me wanting them to film in Australia, I don't think it will ever happen :(
Oooh, This is the hardest one yet. After watching them both many times I have to go with The Doctors Wife. Vincent seems to get lost towards the end although still wonderful :)

He started off great with TUD and TIL but then he hit bottom with VOTD. His episodes have slowly improved since then but never reaching the quality of his first attempt. I enjoyed ROS until the resolution so going by that his next one should be better still. Here's hoping :)

Yes they were both good characters. Jack was utilised about right, In fact I think he could have been in another episode without being over used. River on the other hand was in far too many episodes which was a shame for such a great character idea :)

Does this mean that these were rated 3 & 4 of the entire era or only in the RTD era?

@IrishPenmanship She might not have been Clara's gran at the time but if you Watch "Vengeance on Varos" you will see her play a great character in a great episode involving reality TV long before it was invented :)
I'm with Moffat on the Paternoster gang, They've run their course in my opinion. I do think Gus has to come back or it will be another one of those un answered questions like the woman talking to Wilf and Madame Kovarian.
@supermoff I was only joking, There certainly has been enough :)
