Planet of the Deaf
Bio not provided
@KCi Williams is Moffat @Planet of the Deaf The Snowmen would be in my top 10 simply because I'm pretty sure I've watched it more than any other episode!
5 hours, 40 minutes ago on Doctor Who: Fifty-One Favourites (Part 1)
@LGwalchmai95 Pertwee. The one with the maggots...
Impossible to pick out 10, but off the top of my head...
Girl in the Fireplace
Human Nature/Family of Blood
The Green Death
The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang
The Day of the Doctor
The Name of the Doctor
Dark Water/Death in Heaven

@#SaveConstantine @Planet of the Deaf @supermoff @The Lazy Cat Has Stowed Away on the TARDIS As the Doctor said in Mummy on the Orient Express "Were people really confused? Cos I'm confused." :-)
9 hours, 25 minutes ago on Tate: Donna Return Unlikely
@Clara Bosswald @GOLDTARDIS Agreed, Billie did a great job in DOTD. But then the real Billie is a lot more like The Moment than Rose Tyler :-)
9 hours, 27 minutes ago on Tate: Donna Return Unlikely
@supermoff @Planet of the Deaf @The Lazy Cat Has Stowed Away on the TARDIS To be fair they were only CBBC aliens! Her and Mr Smith might have struggled against a Dalek invasion :-)
9 hours, 46 minutes ago on Tate: Donna Return Unlikely
@The Lazy Cat Has Stowed Away on the TARDIS @supermoff @Planet of the Deaf The thing about being a private alien investigator, is that if I discovered something alien and scary, the first thing I'd do is ring the bloke in the Blue box, who's rather better at it than any human!
9 hours, 53 minutes ago on Tate: Donna Return Unlikely
@supermoff @Planet of the Deaf @The Lazy Cat Has Stowed Away on the TARDIS I found the whole Martha becoming a soldier thing rather unbelievable, it would have been nicer if she had married Tom and then gone off to do more medical work (say in Africa), a more Jo Grant type of exit.
9 hours, 56 minutes ago on Tate: Donna Return Unlikely
@supermoff @The Lazy Cat Has Stowed Away on the TARDIS I never liked that plot development much, a freelance alien hunter? Without the Doctor, a TARDIS or UNIT backup...

I love Murray's music, but your scores are a touch generous!
The DOTD CD has a lot of filler really, playing it just now I was surprised at how little attention I paid to it while it was playing, with 1/2 of the tracks being just background music.
The TOTD CD is better, but as a double CD it feels padded and isn't a patch on the S7 soundtrack.
The TDTWATW/Snowmen soundtrack is also better, I find I can listen to The Snowmen soundtrack right through as every track is memorable by itself.

@supermoff Martha and Mickey would certainly be the easiest ones to bring back, as frankly they're the ONLY recent Companions who could come back without having to rewrite their exits!
10 hours, 30 minutes ago on Tate: Donna Return Unlikely
Her series was great, but that time has passed now, especially the way her exit was written. And it was SIX years ago, that's a long time. Catherine worked really well with David, they're good friends, and despite Donna's protestations, her and 10 did look a bit like a couple! I don't know if Donna would have worked as well with a less human and 'matey' Doctor.
10 hours, 34 minutes ago on Tate: Donna Return Unlikely
@jamesanash101 Having just played that track, yes!
@ahunter8056 Having played through Disk 1 in full for the first time just now, I sort of agree, as a lot of the DOTD tracks are background music really, fine to play when the actors are doing their stuff but not that memorable on their own, and it's only towards the end of both CDs where you get the really good stuff.
By contrast, with The Snowmen soundtrack (half a CD) it's memorable music from start to finish, and the S7 soundtrack has far more good music on it.

@Christoph1337 @supermoff But John Smith's behaviour was of that era, if he had been modern and liberal he would have looked completely out of place in a posh school of that time?.
18 hours, 21 minutes ago on Writers to Bring Back for Series 9 & Beyond
@Baker Street But can he only do that (and indeed can Clara only do that) when the key is in the console lock already?
18 hours, 23 minutes ago on Writers to Bring Back for Series 9 & Beyond
@supermoff @Planet of the Deaf I notice the Sherlock Special readthrough is taking place now, with filming due to start in January. A lot on Moff's plate...

@The Finn @supermoff @Planet of the Deaf I think the strain tolled on RTD at the end...
@Ivegotkidneys RTD gets a credit (and presumably some cash!) when the Oods and Judoon appear on screen!
I suspect that when Moff leave the show, he will take the same attitude as RTD of staying completely out of it. After so many years of devoting yourself to a programme, a clean break is probably the only way out.
It would be really difficult for a new showrunner to tell RTD or Moff that their script needs rewriting or isn't good enough, and I'm sure RTD and Moff are conscious of that
@ilyootha @TheOncomingHurricane There's a joke involving a female Master and "Dicks" but I'm not going there...
@supermoff @jamesanash101 Vincent, Lodger, Pandorica, Big bang, Christmas carol, Astronaut, Day of the Moon - that's a pretty good run of episodes, and one that highlights the show's variety!
@jamesanash101 @supermoff I find the middle episodes sag a bit for me (Ood to Doctor's Daughter), but then really like Unicorn to Turn Left...
@supermoff @Antee991166 Until the finale, oops wrong thread :-)
@Antee991166 @supermoff I'm sure Cross will be back, but I notice that Luther is coming back and is being made remade in the US, so he may be busy...
1 day, 7 hours ago on Writers to Bring Back for Series 9 & Beyond
@LGwalchmai95 I was just thinking about those two episodes, two non sci-fi writers, but both produced brilliant character study episode
@Antee991166 @supermoff Definitely my favourite RTD story!
@Whogasms knows THAT MISSY TELEPORTED, NOT DIED! But then this poll isn't about ranking episodes in order, but is instead about picking out your favourite, and marmite episodes which attract strong opinions do much better in these polls than generally popular episodes (like the S1 finale)

@BazHood @Planet of the Deaf @jamesrbristow I remember there were problems with the 3D bluray, but didn't realise there were problems with the 2D version in this set as well. I haven't watched DOTD for a few weeks, but don't remember seeing anything wrong.

@supermoff @Baker Street To be fair, I imagine the Tennant finales also cannibalise each other, so I've got no idea what the final outcome would be!
1 day, 8 hours ago on New Who Finale Face-Off: Your Top 8
@Blon Fel-Fotch Passameer-Day Slitheen @Alleigh But then Moff series tend to seed the finale plot throughout the series, so that you don't necessarily need a 2 parter to tell the story. We effectively had the S6 finale cliffhanger at the start, when the Doctor was shot...
@Rilson @Planet of the Deaf That was a lost cause I'm afraid!
I'm glad S5 won, but voted tactically for S7 which I liked almost as much (for different reasons) as I felt it needed the support, after the DWTV crew put it last :-)

The more I think about it (when I should be thinking about work related matters) the more I'm convinced that "The Doctor and Clara face their Last Christmas" doesn't refer to Clara planning to leave the Doctor UNLESS she only had months to live and wouldn't live for another Christmas.
Apart from anything else, it's not as Clara and the Doctor would be celebrating Christmas together anyway in the conventional turkey and trimmings sense.
At the end of Death in Heaven, the two were parted rather tragically. Logically, once together again, why would they celebrate their last Christmas together? Surely the Doctor could always pop back the next year anyway, after all Clara in Mummy whilst wanting to end travelling with him, still wanted to invite him around for dinner.
To me "The Doctor and Clara face their Last Christmas" means that this is potentially the last Christmas for everyone - ever!

@The Lazy Cat Has Stowed Away on the TARDIS that was actually the first time we saw OUR Clara..
1 day, 17 hours ago on Last Christmas: Short Synopsis
their last Christmas? But why? Or is this another of Clara's final trips that hopefully lead to another and another...
@supermoff @Planet of the Deaf @#SaveConstantine It just seems wrong when it's the Doctor wearing the more trendy clothes in the photo :-)
2 days, 4 hours ago on “Last Christmas” Promo Art
@#SaveConstantine @Planet of the Deaf It's just that Clara must have had the most stylish wardrobe of any Companion, so to go out wearing a dull blue dressing gown wouldn't be fitting! That convinces me that's she staying actually :-)
@#SaveConstantine @Planet of the Deaf I wouldn't mind if she was wearing the pyjamas from Mummy on the Orient Express though :-)
@Clara Laurinda @supermoff @Malohkeh Out 30 years ago!
I really hope this isn't Clara's last episode, but if it is I REALLY hope she doesn't spend it in her dressing gown. Imagine all those cosplayers going to conventions in dressing gowns as Clara...
@supermoff @The Finn Last Christmas I gave Moffat my heart, but the very next day I watched Death comes to Pemberley because Jenna Coleman was in it.
Not catchy but true :-)
@The Finn @Planet of the Deaf First Osgood, then Santa.
@supermoff @Planet of the Deaf Obviously The Doctor saves the day! Maybe Santa will merely be locked up forever and stopped from giving presents?
I have to say the Doctor definitely looks like Clara's young(ish) gentlemen friend in this photo :-)
Last Christmas, as in the final Christmas because Father Christmas and the Elves are about to be killed?
@PaddyB baldy and Capaldi :-)
@supermoff Last Christmas Clara gave 11 her heart, but the very next day he gave it away by sending her back home to her dreadful Christmas dinner with the relatives...

I'm genuinely not bothered by who writes the episodes, as long as they're well written, interesting stories, and in the main that was what S8 delivered very well. Indeed I'd be more interested to find out from Tregenna whether one of the characters she's writing for is a certain Clara Oswald (bossy, wide face, you know the one)

@ilyootha @Planet of the Deaf Having a quick rewatch of Time of the Doctor, Beginning of the End (which plays during the awful Christmas lunch) is cut off by I am the Doctor (when the TARDIS arrives) whereas in Death in Heaven it plays until virtually the end, including some of the chiming chords.
