The Mind Probe
Bio not provided
@supermoff @The Mind Probe Yeah he's another favourite of mine! Joe Ahearne, Adam Smith and Toby Haynes also spring to mind as directors who need to return!
1 day, 13 hours ago on Moffat: Peter Jackson Episode Will Probably Happen
I'd rather see Graeme Harper return if I'm honest… But Peter Jackson would bring a lot of attention to the show!
@WiblyWoblyTimyWimyMOFFAT I think it means responding to the phone call Matt got at the very end of The Big Bang about a Mummy on the Orient Express. This had already been rumoured for this episode :)
1 day, 17 hours ago on SFX #251 Previews Series 8
@Planet of the Deaf @The Mind Probe Perhaps Jeff's one of the passengers ;)
Reading this list makes me realise how little we actually know about this series!
"808. Moffat playing the long game with a callback to something from Matt’s first series. A brilliant idea of a monster. Foxes singing."
Seems like the rumour of a Mummy on the Orient Express may be true!
@Rani Nose Bringing back the Autons would be a great idea!
6 days, 3 hours ago on Will There Be a 10th Anniversary Special for the Revival?
I may be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure I read in an interview with Steven Moffat in DWM that The Three Doctors was never really planned as a 10 year anniversary special, and it's just gained that reputation since.
@The Outer Space K9 Very true, and I would have thought that 2-parters would be cheaper as you don't need brand new sets for the second part.
1 week ago on Are Longer Stories Better? Five Classics
@Planet of the Deaf I think that the cliffhanger to Episode 6 is, quite possibly, the most moving moment of Classic Who… Incredible acting, and something that you can only get away with because it's a parallel universe!
Also HAVOC are on top form throughout!
1 week, 1 day ago on Are Longer Stories Better? Five Classics
Fantastic article - Inferno is one of my favourite stories ever, and I agree about what you said about the others. The only one of your choices that I feel is padded is The War Games, which I think would have made an even stronger 8-parter. Having said this, the last 2 episodes are phenomenal!
@Planet of the Deaf @The Mind Probe @ShameOnSM I think 6 only shows some darker elements during The Trial of a Time Lord, particularly after (SPOILER) Peri's death, and during the "That's what it takes to be really corrupt" speech.
1 week, 2 days ago on How Far Into Darkness will the 12th Doctor Take Us?
@Planet of the Deaf @The Mind Probe @ShameOnSM Very true, which raises the question of if any of the Doctors have really been dark, or at least consistently dark… I suppose they all have a different scale of darkness, and I'd say Eccleston is the darkest and Troughton is the least dark.
@ShameOnSM Maybe late Tennant too! (I hate that I can't edit previous comments!)
@ShameOnSM Similarly the 1st Doctor which some consider "dark" I just consider "grumpy", and yet he had a really childish playful side. I think the only "dark" Doctors are Hurt, Eccleston, and late McCoy.
@ShameOnSM @The Mind Probe I was never convinced that the 6th Doctor was really "dark", just really "angry", and that changed over time. Whereas Eccleston seemed a really hurt and damaged Doctor.
I just hope they don't do a Christian Bale Batman level of darkness!
Great article! I'm hoping he's about the same level of darkness as Eccleston, who could get angry with a companion (such as at Rose in Father's Day) but still have a laugh and a smile (Everybody lives!)
@Richy Woo Not necessarily - I've heard they get to see some scripts and filming of the new series, so can tailor their characterisation of the Doctor better.
1 week, 2 days ago on First 12th Doctor Novels Detailed
@stargazer0118 @The Mind Probe Either black or dark grey… a funeral perhaps?
1 week, 4 days ago on Doctor Who Series 8 TV Launch Trailer
@YaelMoise @The Mind Probe Haven't seen a tie in any filming photos for the entire series though… Hmm...
0:25 - CAPALDI IS WEARING A TIE!
@DaftDalek @The Mind Probe @TardisBoy I didn't realise how iconic it was either, and yet when I saw a Dalek for the first time it seemed strangely familiar...
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Why We love Doctor Who
@TardisBoy My story's rather similar - my parents were going on about some sic-fi show which they loved when they were kids. I assumed it would be boring… how wrong I was!
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Why We love Doctor Who
P.S. Smashing article, put me in a really great mood!
@Rorschach's_Journal_of_Impossible_Things I'd like to throw the boy from Night Terrors in the list of bad ones too… completely ruined the episode for me!
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Series 8: Frank Cottrell Boyce Confirmed
@awkward912 Perhaps after the recent DWM poll Moffat decided "Return to Akhaten" wasn't such a great plan after all… ;)
"A cast of child actors"... Hmm, Dr Who rarely casts decent child actors...
2 weeks, 6 days ago on Series 8: Frank Cottrell Boyce Confirmed
The story itself is sweet, but my main issue is it didn't have to be the Cybermen at all… it could have been any other monster (preferably a new one), as it didn't add anything to the Cybermen, and instead made them come across as weak.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on The Common Criticisms of Closing Time
So if this 50th anniversary box set is going to happen, it must be soon!
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Series 8 DVD / Blu-Ray Dated
Interesting… so this would suggest the Cybermen might be the main villain after all of the finale...
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Series 8 Finale Filming: Beyond the Grave
Doctor Who gets better viewing figures than Game of Thrones, 24, The Musketeers and Merlin, so I think it's best to keep it how it is!
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Is the Current Format a Serial Killer?
@Amy is Hannibal Ah nice, thanks!
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Series 8 Finale Filming: Returning Characters & Monster
@Amy is Hannibal Pandorica, Handles… is there another one?
Just noticed there's a lack of Clara here...
@DWTV True, but Moffat often has multiple enemies and I'm convinced the Master is returning :-)
I assume the Cybermen are just going to be one of many villains as the BBC are happy to announce their return without covering up filming...
@Esterath Ooh, well spotted!
@TARDISkey221B Well, a mixture of 10 and 11! :)
NEW TARDIS COLOUR SCHEME! :D
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Series 8 Airdate Confirmed, New Trailer & Image
Ooh… nice one Moffat!
Is this the previously mentioned cliffhanger for Series 9?
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Moffat: Who says the Doctor is NOT human?
I am here, Master!
4 weeks ago on Moffat Teases Massive Cliffhanger
Fantastic actress! I'd actually be keen on seeing her play the Rani on screen too...
Interesting Fact: She played identical twins (one of which was Capaldi's wife) in the first story of Sea of Souls!
4 weeks ago on Meet the New Rani
I meant to say non-event, but I assume you all knew what I meant ;)
4 weeks ago on Series 8: The Almost Complete Line-Up
@Romanadvoratrelundar Thompson's a strange one… Every time I watch Curse I like it more and more, and every time I watch Journey I like it less and less…
@The_Eternal_Dalek @tcexect Neil Gaiman? He's meant to be writing another one, although it will probably be in Series 9...
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Series 8: The Almost Complete Line-Up
@The Finn @Benjamin Bradley Which onessssssss? ;)
I'm really looking forward to Episode 4, as Moffat hasn't written an 'event' story since Flesh and Stone!
@YaelMoise @The Mind Probe It's in different blocks with different directors, so must be two single episodes :)
