@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!

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 :)

"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!

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.

Reply

@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!

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.

Reply

@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.

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.

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!
