@the Doctor's Euph is REGENERATING! In my opinion, that moment in itself was kind of a 180 to all of the Doctor's prior encounters with Davros. In the classic series, he was always glad to think that Davros was dead. I still don't really understand what changed between then and now to suddenly make the Doctor want to save him. (Especially after the Daleks' atrocities during the Time War, you'd think it would've just furthered his resentment.)

@SachinJayKumar He won't do it. He won't be able to bring himself to. It's just like in "Genesis of the Daleks" like the article mentioned, when he had the chance to stop the Daleks from ever being created.

@Typo42 "Magic Carrots" @MarlonJBonnici Terry Nation ultimately had very little to do with how the story turned out. Douglas Adams was said to have rewritten 99% of it (and it definitely shows).

@Whogasms knows THAT MISSY TELEPORTED, NOT DIED! As long as we're not revisiting the scene where the Doctor has to break his companion's faith by telling her off (even though that's more run-of-the-mill for Capaldi's Doctor). I'm not ready to be sad about something like that again. :(

@MichaelFisher215 Well, then the show loses any female representation. I'm not saying there shouldn't be a strong male companion on the show, but why not have it like Jamie and Zoe where they're both on the TARDIS but are strictly friends and nothing more?

Honestly, I think Moffat quietly retired the Paradigm Daleks after seeing all the negative fan reactions and mocking towards them. I agree, if maybe they'd just had all of them a single color, or made the Supreme Dalek in particular a Paradigm Dalek, it'd be a lot better.

I just really want to see more long-term companions. So far, no one in the revived series has stayed for more than 2 series (and Clara's first run wasn't even a full season), and it really bugs me. It's difficult to get invested in a companion when you feel like they're never going to be around for too long.

See, this is what I had figured was going on. The 3W Institute tells people that their bodies remain conscious in order to manipulate them into giving up their emotions, thus making them better hosts for new Cybermen.

@M-M-G How is this offensive to Delgado's legacy? The Master has always sought his ambitions by manipulating people. Here, s/he's just taking advantage of the new opportunities that a female body presents for that purpose.


Hyponosis has never worked on the Doctor, but now the Master has found something that DOES, and it makes him all the more dangerous. Whereas River was genuinely trying to be flirty and sexy, the Master is using it to ease the Doctor's ambitions and make him less of a threat. I personally think it's genius and totally in character with the Master.

Even as an American, I'm... not really sure what to think when it comes to having more American actors on the show. I mean, I know Doctor Who has such a global audience now and it would be appropriate to start 'American-izing' it a bit more, but for me, the British factor is just one of the things that I love about Doctor Who, and I'd hate to see that get downplayed for the sake of trying to appeal to us American viewers more.

I will admit, I struggle to understand him on occasion, but being an American viewer, I've always watched Doctor Who with subtitles on anyway because there's thick accents all over the place.


So it doesn't really bother me. In fact, really, I LOVE the way he speaks.
