@The Dreamer wants her Who Christmas NOW! I recommend that you get it - the magazines are always brilliant and are full of great features! And I learn something new every time I read one!

I really want another series of just 12 and Clara, as I think there's still loads more to do with the character, the dynamic is brilliant, and I love Jenna :)

I love how most of the series has been broadcast at around half past 8 (probably the latest times the show's had), and then the Xmas Special is on insanely early! Still, it's less time to wait :P

I want him to do something similar to James Corden and come back occasionally (although I want him to be in a lot more episodes than Craig was!). Also he's a brilliant actor, so I'd love to see him again.

WEIRD AND WONDERFUL IS BACK!! And what a fantastic WaW to come back on - best one yet IMO. I saw that video Capaldi made a few weeks back, and I'm so pleased that we have such a wonderful, kind and brilliant guy as the Doctor. Also, I love the Guardians of the Galaxy-esque poster, and the Series 8 posters... I am in love :)

Actually, I suppose I shouldn't be that surprised; every episode of the series was the no. 1 viewed programme in the following week!

Okay, I was expecting there to be a significant increase. BUT NOT THAT FREAKIN' MUCH!!! AAAHHH!!! Seriously, these are some outstanding ratings, and this just proves why this show will never die. 

Woah, Death In Heaven saw an increase of 3.36million viewers! That is phenomenal!

In a poll with just the two of them I'm suddenly struggling - last time I went for Gomez just because I LOVED her evil, bananas portrayal, whereas now I'm actually focusing on Delgado more and I'm thinking about that cold, authoritative, ruthless villain who's a bit like Doctor Who's version of a Bond villain (or, as Barry Letts and Terrance Dicks put it, the Doctor's Moriarty). I'm not really sure here.

Beautiful, brilliant article K-Ci! I'm really looking forward to the others!

Also, I have to say that these choices are FANTASTIC. Seriously, I love these episodes to bits. If I had to rate them (I know you didn't put them in any particular order, I just like listing things!) I'd go:

1. Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways

2. Dark Water/Death in Heaven

3. The Five Doctors (my first classic serial!)

4. The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon

5. The Unicorn and the Wasp

6. Voyage of the Damned

7. The End of Time

8. Father's Day

9. Turn Left

10. An Unearthly Child (if it was just Part One it'd be a lot higher!)

Those top 4 are actually all in my top 20 eps of all time!

On that note, I actually sent in a question earlier today something along the lines of "In Dark Water did Clara forget that the Doctor can open the TARDIS with a click of his fingers when she was planning to destroy the keys?"

I wish Doomsday had come a bit higher - it has an epic first half with great acting all round, the Cult of Skaro are awesome, the Cybermen are pretty creepy for the first half, and Rose's departure is heartbreaking (damn you Series 4!). I love the inclusion of the Pete's World people too - the scene with Jackie and Pete is both beautiful and hilarious! There's only two things wrong with it IMO - it should have been an hour so that Rose's departure didn't waste time, and the Cybermen should have been able to at least scratch a Dalek (the battle scenes would have been so much cooler if they weren't just Cyberman massacres). I'd love to see those smug ol' Daleks fight the new Cybermen - they'd be in for a bit of a shock!

@Captain Grumpy @Baker Street Chris Eccleston's best performance, Billie's best performance, the best Dalek story (I love how ruthless and unstoppable they are), some great character development for the Doctor, and it clearly shows the consequences of being around the Doctor. Perfection  :)

@supermoff @Baker Street It'd be interesting to compare them. I mean, I remember in the comments of the actual voting bit a lot of people had Series 8 high up in their lists at 2 or 3 (like myself), but it was very rarely a number 1 which meant that it wasn't as high as it perhaps should have been. And I guess that Wedding is so low down in this poll because it's no 1 for so few people, although (as the comments here prove) a lot of people do still love it  :)

I don't really get the love for the Series 4 finale. The Stolen Earth's pretty cool because of everyone coming together and the return of Davros (and the awesome cliffhanger), but Journey's End is hideous to me. The most embarrassing deus ex machina ever, far too cheesy, and it felt like Russell had got all excited about having Davros and two Doctors and loads of companions in the same room and had then forgotten how he was going to resolve it or what he was going to do with the companions. I mean, Sarah Jane was left to just shove a Dalek out of the way. What?!

For me, I was encouraged by my dad to watch it. He grew up with Tom Baker, and on April 23rd we were in Swanage on holiday. We were walking along the pier to the fish and chip shop, and he said to the 5-year-old me "there's a programme on tonight that I think you might like. It's about a magical man called Doctor Who, who travels around and defeats monsters." That night, when we were back at home, I sat down to watch World War Three (an episode I still treasure to this day). And that was when I was hooked. I never looked back :)

As someone who studies GCSE Music and just generally loves music I always adore the soundtracks (several of the tracks on the Series 7 Soundtrack have over 200 plays on my iTunes - *cough*BahBahBiker/Infinite Potential*cough*) and, as always, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this review! Sadly I won't be getting the soundtrack until next month, but I am really, really looking forward to listening to it!

Wonderful article as always Connor, and I particularly liked:

"Doctor Who should never in my opinions base its success on the number of fans, but on the passion it instils in whomever it’s enjoyed by. Its ability to unite and capture so many people’s adorations and affections even decades after its broadcast is what will ensure that Doctor Who never dies." - Perfectly said :)
