Was the (stunning) 50th really a year ago? Wow - time flies when you're having fun! And what a fun year it's been, what with Series 8 gracing our screens and those Attack Eyebrows mesmerizing our minds! Y'know, even after 51 years the greatest show in the universe still manages to produce absolutely classic episodes, with beautiful stories, heart-stopping surprises and top quality acting. It - and all the other 800 or so episodes - are proof of why this show is timeless :)

Happy Birthday to Who!

When I got it I was so pleased/surprised that I ran into the middle of my street, screamed WOOHOO and ran back inside again!! Maybe there's a TARDIS involved...

Despite living in the UK I actually got my copy of the Limited Edition set yesterday! The TARDIS noise button is probably nearly worn out, and I have literally just finished watching "Listen", eps 9-12 of "Doctor Who Extra", "Inside the TARDIS", the "Don't Stop Me Now" video and "Casting Peter Capaldi". So far it's been brilliant! Also, the menu design is my favourite yet, and I actually can't get over how thin it is for a box set. Yes, I know it's a weird point, but the Blu-Ray DVD is thinner than a normal DVD and it's got 5 discs in! I thought they'd given me half a box set at first! Can't wait to do a series marathon, although I can't do it this weekend :(

1. Anthony Ainley - delightfully evil, cold, ruthless, and he just sounds so cool. He could do insane, creepy and egotistical all at the same time, and I love all of his performances.

2. Roger Delgado - the Master of disguises is no. 2 for me (it was close), and I love his chemistry with Jon Pertwee. I just haven't really seen enough of him yet.

3. Geoffrey Beevers - looks creepy, sounds creepy, and is creepy. He gave a great, memorable performance.

4. Eric Roberts - more like a cross between a Bond villain and someone with green eyes and odd vomit. Really odd vomit. One of the worst things of the story for me.

I haven't seen Peter Pratt!

I love Capaldi so much, and I'd be overjoyed if he broke Tom's record (sorry Tom!) This is the Doctor I've been waiting for, and the day he regenerates will be awful. Anyway, it's his dream role and he clearly adores it, so it would really surprise me if he stayed for anything less than four or even five series.

<i>"Sally Sparrow responds to the Doctor on DVD Easter eggs that are transcribed to tell the Doctor everything she says in reply, which he responds to and records it as Easter eggs, which Sally responds to by saying her original dialogue but is actually being recorded for the Doctor. So the Doctor only responds to Sally because he knows what she is saying while watching, but Sally only responds because the Doctor talks to her because he knows exactly what she says."</i>

Well done! My mind melted just reading it, I definitely wouldn't have been able to write it!

I'm worried that Series 8 isn't going to fare well here - not because it's disliked, but because it's normally about second or third on people's lists and is very rarely a number 1 by the looks of things.

Series 5 seems to be getting a lot of love, and to be fair it is a brilliant finale. I just think The Big Bang is nowhere near as good as The Pandorica Opens. Although River killing the Dalek and the Doctor rebooting the Universe are two of the best scenes of the series. Okay, and that opening scene was mental (in a good way)! Oh, and the fez. That good ol' fez. Fezzes are cool.

I was about to say that it would have been a waste to have Capaldi in just one episode (well, kind of two), but then it was also a waste to have Paul in just one episode!

When I think about all of his episodes it really makes me realise just how brilliant he is as a writer. I'd say he's the Robert Holmes of New Who, and I hope he stays for years to come :)

Glad to see they don't have to appear in every series, and I think it'd be good to give them a break next series so that when they do return it has more of an impact.

I rated ITFOTN 6/10, as I found it dreadfully boring. Bit disappointed that The Doctor's Wife got the top spot as I've never been a fan of that episode, and I wish (and I'm surprised that it wasn't) The Rings of Akhaten was higher. God I love that story! As for the last poll, I actually expected it to be almost 50/50, although I went for no. I just think Clara's one of the best companions in ages (she's everything a companion should be), and that factor coupled with the fact that 12 is a more mysterious Doctor makes it feel as though Clara might possibly be overshadowing the Doctor.

I say 7. I think she'll actually stay on for Series 9, but then again I think the arguments between her and the Doctor could have been a foreshadowing of them splitting up/being split up. And I can't help but think something bad's going to happen to Danny. But then I doubt Clara would continue travelling with the Doctor if something did.

I think my mind just broke.

They're too much like robots for me. I love the classic Cybermen (especially the 80s ones), as they were intelligent, tactical, manipulative, unpredictable, menacing etc. Now they're just loud, speechless, invincible, Iron Man-like robots who seem to have no motive. I hope Steven Moffat will make them as good as they can be and redeem them.

He has been superb this year. Either him or Ben Wheatley for my favourite director this year, and I think I'm leaning more towards Mackinnon. Like you said, he can do as many eps as he likes IMO!

I think this'll be quitea contrasting episode, with moments of comedy and moments of horror. Can't wait to see Clara investigating on her own, and I love James Mathieson for coming up with the idea of a 2D monster. I can't wait for Saturday!

Oh, and that is some amazing CGI!

5. Song For Ten - I've loved it ever since I first heard it - there's something so majestic and uplifting about it, and it's the cherry on the top for a brilliant episode.

4. Song of Captivity/Song of Freedom - Just beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. Nuff said.

3. Abigail's Song / Don't Stop Me Now - I'm not cheating (well, I am a little bit), it's too hard to separate these. I love the lyrics in both. Abigail's Song is beautiful and haunting (and great to listen to if you're walking alone), whilst Don't Stop Me Now has always been one of my favourite songs and was adapted and sung brilliantly. And, weirdly, I've always thought about Doctor Who when I listen to it, so I was pleasantly surprised to hear it in Saturday's episode!

2. Doctorin' the TARDIS - No, I'm actually not joking! It's not a brilliant song, and strictly speaking it shouldn't really be with these others, but the reason it's at number 4 is because it brings back happy memories of when I was 8 and had a brilliant Whovian friend in my primary school. I remember there was one day when we won this Doctor Who quiz thing in Bristol, and then we were presented with our prizes by Nick Briggs and afterwards we met the wonderful Lis Sladen and got to spend about 5 minutes with her before her signing. It was phenomenal, and then we listened to this song in the car on the way home.

1. The Long Song - Again, this is a really beautiful song, and it fits perfectly to the scene. It's actually the most played song on my iTunes; bearing in mind the Series 7 Soundtrack came out just over a year ago, it's had 300 plays. Emilia Jones is fantastic, the score is powerful and moving and triumphant, and as Connor points out, the best thing about the song is its motivation. Easily my number 1.

Fantastic article Connor, I absolutely loved it!
