I know I'm pretty stupid and have probably misread it, but I thought that clara gave the doctor (as a kid) the toy soldier, so how could she give it to the Pink family? Someone explain please (this is not me being rude, or sarcastic) i genuinely don't get it :)

@ilyootha @LaraHarris I know! What's Moffat thinking?? Having Christmas themes in a Christmas episode... it's just not good enough.

While my first doctor was 9, I didn't really get into the show, or enjoy it until 11 came along. So I'm going with Smith.

@The Lazy Cat Needs Her Inhaler I also think that we would have had an official announcement from the BBC. If not, then there would've been a serious risk that someone would leak the info. 

Of course, if I'm wrong, then the BBC have done really well in keeping this a secret :)

An interesting debate! While I'm not the biggest fan of 'Dark Water', I think this complaint is a whole lot of nonsense. just my opinion, of course.

@RieruM @Warisfiller Also, some people are just never happy. The people who complain that this is 'Clara Who' are the SAME people who complained that clara was a cardboard cut-out during S7. I guess you can't please everyone.

Ferdinando was brilliant in the role. While people may argue whether 'Deep Breath' was good or not (and I am actually not sure about parts of it myself) I think it's safe to say that the acting was briliant :)

I wouldn't say the LACK of death is a weakness (because there is death) it's just the way in which he handles death is a weakness. There is generally no consequence from it. I love 'Everybody Lives' however if you want to kill someone, I think there has to be consequences associated with it.

Absolutely. While I may come across as as little bit angry or nasty, I'm honestly not. I really hope you like s8. Also, if you don't like s8, then that's you prerogative, but I still stand by what I said.

@YaelMoise @Thesilence_1994 Ok. I think you're wrong. The ONLY way for shows to grow is for artists to try new things and new ideas. Yes, it may backfire but it may also work. Howver, shows can and will only go downhill if artists never try to take new risks, Look at 'The Simpsons' for a start. 


Oh, and the show won't suffer from a bit more emotional realism especially after Clara and Rory dying in multiple episodes.


You will probably disagree with this, and what I have written may even make you angry but I think there are flaws in what you're arguing.

I really disagree that it was just one person who said series 5 was like a fairy tale and that it somehow 'caught on'

1) Amy waited 12 years for her doctor to return. Note how that correlates with the fairy tale trope of waiting for Prince Charming to come to the rescue?

2) Rory waited 2000 years outside of the Pandorica to keep Amy safe. Ever heard of the trope 'True Love conquers all'? The way it was narrated in 'The Big Bang' was almost like it came out of something like 'snow white' or 'Cinderella' - Rory the hero, protected his 'princess'

If you wanted to, you could go on and on about how series 5 was very much like a fairy tail ; how Amy realised that travelling with the doctor and Rory was better than the life she had at home. How Amy had to choose between her two 'prince charmings' in her life etc etc.

The doctor even said that Amy (or at least her name) sounded like a fairy tale (that's a fact)

Also, I admit, the way I put it here makes it sound a little corny, but I think it's hard to argue about the use of fairy tale tropes in series 5 at least. Also note, whether you enjoyed the fairy tale trope is another question entirely

So you want to stop moffat limiting creative freedom in the future by limiting what moffat can do with the show now? Interesting.

A little upset that 'The Pandorica Opens/  The Big Bang' didn;t make the top 10. That still remains Steven's best script and the best series finale we've had in the revived show.

The best is 'Dalek', followed by 'vamplres' and then 'bells of St. John'. The rest are stories that I don't particularly enjoy and I think they are all equally weak
