A wonderful article of a wonderful writer! Douglas Adams really deserves to be called a genius - and like with so many artists, left us long before their time.

Surely it HAS to be Listen! Such an incredibly original opening, and it gave me goosebumps!

@Stradiwhovius Oh cheer up, it's Christmas! (and that was a cracker of a story!)

I loved that final scene between the Doctor and Clara. As Moffat says, it is "a perfect summation of their relationship"… Which is why I think that story should be over, bringing Clara back makes that whole beautiful ending pointless.

@Tardis Boy I'm not so sure, the singing woman in this clip was a bit OTT...

Very, very glad to hear this! I've been wanting her to write a story for ages, as I loved her work on Torchwood - Out of Time and Captain Jack Harkness were very beautiful, moving stories, and Adam was a very clever idea.

My favourite Doctor of the revival, and in my top 3 of all Doctors!

I don't like angry Whovians… I didn't enjoy it as much as other episodes this season, but it can hardly be called awful.

@DavrosLives I hated Love & Monsters initially, and now consider it a great character piece (I'd give it a 7/10). Fear Her and The Rings of Akhaten are a lot less entertaining personally!
Ooh, interesting leap up…

6/10 - not bad, but the least good of the series. That trailer was incredible though!
@FoxInTheBox And also 30 minutes extra on Deep Breath + 15 minutes extra on Death in Heaven = Episode 13! ;)
5 months ago on Death in Heaven Official Synopsis
@FoxInTheBox Quite a few of the episodes this series have been a bit over 45 minutes I think, more like 47/48 minutes, so I'd guess DIH is about 58 minutes to fit in an hour time slot :)
That's great to see! I think Jamie Mathieson has proved himself as the best new writer for Doctor Who since Neil Gaiman.

This is very sad news indeed - she was far too young.

@social_crime I think you might be right… there was another mention of Clara's "death date" in this episode which she refused to know...

@JamesSkippins I'm surprised you found it childish - I'm sure most people would agree it was one of the most mature and adult stories Doctor Who has really done. The script was incredibly multilayered.
@Huknar Have you seen The Twin Dilemma… or Timelash… or Time and the Rani… or Fear Her? :p
@eph39 @IrelandMichael A kid wearing a mask
Thank goodness I didn't read this review before watching the episode!
6 months, 2 weeks ago on Listen Spoiler-Free Review
Whilst it is not his accent to blame, I must admit I've struggled to hear a few lines every episode due to Capaldi's volume level being lower than that of other characters (particularly the opening scene of Deep Breath). The balancing with the music has also not been great at times, but I know people have complained about this for years.

@MisterMeanour Well it's more that the news is very fresh in people's minds, and a family programme showing decapitation casually so soon after this tragic event is likely to upset the families and friends of those killed - it just wouldn't be particularly tasteful so soon after this horrific event.
6 months, 3 weeks ago on BBC Cuts Robot of Sherwood Scene
@luckemasse @The Mind Probe Oh yes, that's true! Although that was more off-screen whereas this sounds like it's going to be more obvious if it's the conclusion of a long battle.
A decapitation in Doctor Who sounds very dark to begin with, so I assume this confirms that whoever was going to be beheaded was a robot… I hope cutting this isn't jarring and I hope the DVD shows the full version, but it's a good call from the BBC in light of recent events.
One of the longest-standing companions ever?! She will have done less than 2 series!

@Gustaff I'm not sure, but I think it sounds more like Two Steps From Hell with those sorts of risers and electronics than Murray Gold

This would be absolutely terrible unless a charity special which is non-canon. When you try to combine two different TV worlds you end up with disasters like Dimensions in Time!

@Xaven There's another non-private one, just type in "doctor who series 8 opening titles official leaked" to youtube :)

I really hope Billy Hanshaw gets properly credited in the end titles, and he really deserves to be paid as some bits are identical.
@Stradiwhovius I hated the TARDIS doors for the fact that they opened outwards at the end of the title sequence, not inwards like in the programme!
Hmm, can't believe many fans would get this… far too much for 1 episode, especially considering the box set will be out a couple of months later!

I'm assuming he will do the average of 3 series, which is the perfect time to develop a Doctor and be loved and missed, without ruining your career!

The more I read about this series, the more it seems like they're trying to do the Sixth Doctor... but done well! More like his audio adventures than first series.

Looks like Capaldi tries on various different costumes throughout the episode before settling on his final one!

The BBC Radiophonic Workshop at Commonwealth Games 2014 is incredible! I love the Peter Howell theme tune, so funky!
@supermoff @The Mind Probe @LGwalchmai95 Just read that he was inspired by James Bond and The Bourne Identity, so urban thrillers in general :)

@supermoff @LGwalchmai95 Was he really influenced by Skyfall? Filming on Bells took place over a month before Skyfall was released!
