Oh Capaldi I love you :)

1 day, 19 hours ago on Capaldi was Adamant About No Flirting in Series 8

The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe - 4/10: The first half of this Christmas special is atually pretty good, it's when Cyril enters the forest that this story turns into a absolute snore fest.

Asylum of the Daleks - 6/10: A good start to Series 7. It looks amazing, the Oswin reveal was genius and Matt Smith is at the top of his game as the Doctor. However I was very disappointed by the lack of classic series Daleks and the Pond's divorce was one of the most stupid sub plots I have ever seen. 

Dinosaurs on a Spaceship - 3/10: Oh I hate this one, nearly everything about it just irritates me, those stupid robots, the childish humor and just the lack of Dinosaur action. David Bradley was great though. 

A Town Called Mercy - 7/10: This one I really like a lot, the moral dilemma just really appeals me and we got to see that darker side to the Eleventh Doctor. I do think the script is a bit messy though.

The Power of Three - 9/10: This is my favourite story from Series Pond It’s very funny (unlike Dinosaurs) and feels more like a story straight out the RTD era. It was also great to see UNIT again for the first time in ages and that scene between the Doctor and Amy at the Tower of London is my favourite scene between the two. The only problem is the ending which was a massive let-down, I think The Power of Three is a prime example of a story that needed to be a two-parter or at the very least sixty minutes long. 



The Angles Take Manhattan - 8/10: I think to really enjoy this story I have to turn my brain off, there are just gaping plot holes all the way through it. But it is very entertaining, very sad and a good one for the Pond's to go out on and the last line of the story was just perfect. 

The Snowmen - 6/10: This story is a mixed bag for me as it's kind of made up of good little moments, the Paternoster Gang were great (although the humour from Strax was hit and miss), the Sherlock Holmes gag was genius, the TARDIS reveal was awesome and the Doctor's arc throughout the story was very well done. The villains of this special however were lame, the Snowmen don't do anything and Richard E. Grant's performance is just well... bad, he didn't seem into it at all and that scene where he gets possessed by the GI is embarrassing, I'm also probably in the minority hear in that I found victorian Clara (like Oswin) incredibly annoying.

Thought that teaser was a bit stupid to be honest, preferred the last three.

I think The Time of the Doctor is pretty good but It dose have it's problems I think the last 15 mins however is pretty much perfect. The Eleventh Doctor on the clock tower is now my absolute favourite Matt Smith moment and the regeneration scquence itself is really well done, it's not the best in the shows history (Eccleston's still holds that honer) but I can't think of a more perfect, more heroic way for my Doctor to go out.

@TheOncomingStorm @Planet of the Deaf @Mikeyboss182 @supermoff I think a Six/Peri dynamic can work if handled well and I think that's what Moffat is going for with Twelve/Clara, at least at the beginning of the season.

Completly disagree with main focus on plot, not companion. In my opinion the last two series focused a lot more on the Doctor then the companions and they felt more plot driven then character driven epically in Series 7. In a way I want Series 8 to be all about Clara, we see the Doctor through her eyes, the Doctor's the hero but the companion is the main character, that how I prefer Doctor Who.

I personally like the Sonic Screwdriver and don't want them to permently get rid of it like they did in the 80's but I do agree it's become way overused of late especially in Series 7, so yes the writers need to buck up and start thinking of more clever and inventive ways to solve problems. Oh and give Capaldi is own one next season.

I really don't see the point in a 10th anniversary special, I can't really explain why but it's just seems a bit stupid after the 50th. However I think a documentery could be good on the 26th March and some  small references in Series 9 but that's about it.

I think both Classic and New Who are the opposite of one another, in the Classic series stories were either just the right lenth or too long, in the new series stories are either just the right lenth or too short.

I really do like the tweaks to the TARDIS interior it looks so much more homely now with the new light ting. I loved Matt's second TARDIS when it was first revealed in The Snowmen but as 7B went on I started to get bored of it, I found it was too much like a generic alien spaceship.

Thinking about it i think twelves line "I have made many mistakes" is from episode two with the Daleks, he's feeling guilty about letting them get away all the time and decides to get rid of them once and for all hence his line "Into darkness" he may do some really dark stuff in that episode which leads to ask Clara if he is a good man at the end. Just a theory.

Sounds like an interesting idea for a Dalek story but I can’t say I'm too thrilled about them appearing so soon after Day and Time and why as early as episode two? Couldn't they have held them off to a bit later in the series?

Then again I suppose it’s a nice nod to the William Hartnell era, with both one and Twelve facing the Daleks in their second stories.

Thank you for this article I love Closing Time, It's just so much fun in a otherwise dark series. Matt Smith and James Cordon make a great double act and Gareth Roberts gets the humor spot on as always. I really don't get the hate for it and I would watch Closing Time over that piece of crap Nightmare in Silver any day.

No I don't think the classic format would work in this day and age at all, however I do think Doctor Who could benefit from having a series of hour long episodes nowadays especially if Moffat wants to continue with the blockbuster of the week type format.

@supermoff I do agree with you hear Series 5 is the only season of Doctor Who to be told like a fairy-tale, all three of Matt Smith's seasons were very different from each other in tone and the way they were structured.

Reply

Personally I think Series 6 was a very dark season and I don't think the show really needs to go any darker than that, I mean out of the eleven stories from that season only three of them were retentively light-hearted, The Curse of the Black Spot, Let's Kill Hitler and Closing Time. I would however like to see a darker, grittier and more bad ass Doctor which I think is what where going to get with Capaldi, not that I didn't like Matt (he's my favourite Doctor) but that's one of the joys of Regeneration is that you want the Doctor to be different each time. 

So overall in terms of the tone of the stories I think the show is just fine as it is.
