I think an ex-soldier is exactly what Clara needs in a boyfriend. We learned thanks to Strax that she likes muscular young sporty men, and she is also well established as a bossy control freak; that works great because soldiers are great at following orders XD I think "Pink Soufflé" will be super cute.

I liked it, but something about it seemed a little off...not sure what is bothering me so much... The Doctor's treatment of Ross really had me unsettled. It seemed a bit callous to tell him to trust him, then just let him be killed. The Doctor is many things, among them occasionally a man of questionable morality, but I am a firm believer that he has always been fundamentally good, and even rougher Doctors like one and six were deep down very kind. I think the Doctor's treatment of Ross was a very un-doctorly thing to do that really threw me off. Also, I would have liked to see Rusty die in the end, or the Doctor reprogram him back or something. It just felt unresolved to me, and a little too convenient that Rusty was headed off to kill all the Daleks.
Many people have expressed that they didn't like the Doctor's treatment of soldiers, and I have to say I agree with this a bit...it's inconsistent with the show's past. The Doctor has had soldier friends and companions in the past. The Brig is a perfect example. He was a great military mind, and also a man the Doctor deeply loved and trusted as a friend. 7/10 for me for these reasons, as much as it pains me to rate an episode I really enjoyed so much so low.
Anybody decipher the codes? I'm not complicated, I don't do puzzles, frankly I don't have the attention span.

These statistics make Doctor Who look homophobic, but in reality they're probably a lot better than other shows. I would say most TV shows don't even have five "non heterosexual" characters. Doctor Who is a lot more LGBT inclusive than most media these days, especially family shows.

Am I the only one that thought that man with the gun was Paul mcgann at first? Blimey that's an uncanny resemblance.

Also, I don't really view killing a droid as murder. The half face man technically wasn't alive in my opinion; perhaps in his centuries of becoming "more human" he did pick up something close to a life and maybe even some emotions, but he's still technically a robot. If 12 did kill him, it wasn't much worse than smashing a computer. I would absolutely destroy a sentient piece of technology if it meant saving many real, human lives.

Hmmm there should be an "other" option. I don't think it's quite as simple as that. My theory is that there really wasn't much we didn't see; the half face man killed himself, but because of the Doctor's manipulation, a la Sylvester McCoy. Thus I can't really say it was one or the other...I think both had a hand in it.
I seriously doubt she is River and I really hope not too. I do really, really want River back, but as Alex Kingston.
1 week ago on Introducing Missy the “Gatekeeper”: Who is She?
I think she will be someone entirely new, although I would love for her to be the Rani...whoever she is, I am almost certain she is the woman in the shop, and I think she has a lot to do with The Doctor and Clara and has some motive for keeping them together.
I thought it was amazing, I think it's dumb that anyone would think it undermined Capaldi. If anything, it made the transition so much easier. It reassured fans that this was the same Doctor, and that's always hard to grasp at first. It was perfect, could not have been done better.

Also, the title sequence was just incredible :)
1 week, 1 day ago on Rate & Discuss Deep Breath
I LOVED IT! Easily, the best post regeneration episode in my opinion, although Spearheads was pretty great and I'm a big fan of Robot and The Eleventh Hour. We wanted more mature, and we got it. It was quite dark at times, especially with the skin balloon. I found Strax quite hilarious in this one actually, I think they used his character well, he wasn't quite as overwhelming as usual. The gag where he throws the paper at Clara's face made me laugh pretty hard XD
I have complete faith in Capaldi. He is going to be one of the best. He nailed it, he was just incredible. And Matt's appearance was just perfect. I really needed that closure, I felt that Time of the Doctor was too abrupt and we didn't really get a fair goodbye. That phone call to Clara was exactly what I needed, and exactly what she needed too. I love that it addressed very clearly that this is and always will be THE DOCTOR; he's still the exact same man. Sometimes, fans tend to view each of the regenerations as separate people, and that simply isn't how it is. It was a success in my opinion and I look forward to a hopefully very long tenure with Peter Capaldi.
Crap XD well...maybe I'll request she leave the room....
Quick question, I have yet to see it, are there any overtly lesbian scenes between them...? I will be watching at my grandmas house, I've yet to see it, and she's a bit homophobe...
I actually think the largest portion of the audience these days are teens, just for the record...I actually would like some of the darker sides of the show to be explored a bit more, Doctor Who was originally considered pretty violent for family television and I don't see why they shouldn't push the limits a bit more these days. I don't want a "dark" Doctor Who, but it could use a bit more chill factor especially with the daleks these days. Kids can handle a lot more than they're given credit for. However, I wouldn't want Doctor Who to lose its light, funny moments. Those played an enormous factor in endearing me personally to the show, especially in Matt's era. The best part about Doctor Who is that it has always been something the whole family can enjoy. It's a show adults can watch and feel like a kid again, and it's a show kids can watch and gain a little more of an adult understanding on many aspects of life.

I notice he's wearing a vest in these, not a cardigan.
This gives me a sense of foreboding...I hope Doctor Who doesn't go the same way it did in the 80s. This show needs to last another 50 years! Also, another interesting similarity is the big anniversary special during the "new young man"'s tenure. Davison had the Five Doctors, Smith had Day of the Doctor.

Colin Baker is not the top of my list, I'll admit, but honestly half of that owes to his costume. Very dreadful decision in my opinion. Otherwise, once you can look past the rainbow, he really is a very lovely Doctor. He's complex, and harder to love at first, and it made for a very unique and interesting period of the show. I think he gets a bit of a negative reputation mostly just from first impressions. He's a Doctor you have to stick with for a bit to learn to like him.

I only hope it doesn't get too soapy. We've had all kinds of romances lately, I would have hoped to tone it down a bit, more like an Ian/Barbara type relationship...oh well, we shall see, maybe I'll end up loving Danny and Clara :)

3 weeks, 1 day ago on The Future of Clara Oswald
I expect that he will probably become a heartthrob to many regardless of his age XD there's a big difference between "unattractive" and "unconventionally attractive." No Doctor Who actor has ever been a Channing Tatum and I say thank God for that. They all have their charm, and I'd say even codgery old Hartnell and rainbow man Colin Baker could be sexy to some! The Doctor has always challenged the big buff hollywood hot guy in tights stereotype for male leads, and that's one of my favourite parts about Doctor Who. We have enough unrealistic, flawlessly photoshopped male (and female) heroes in the media. The Doctor is and will always be ten times sexier because he's a very real looking man with character in his features! Which is ironic, because he's also an alien :)

I love Clara! I was a bit skeptical at first but all my doubts vanished when Day of the Doctor aired. I must disagree, in the second article, about her caring more about the turkey than anything else during Time of the Doctor...the turkey really faded out of the plot almost entirely very quickly, she only cared about staying with the Doctor and helping him.

Am I the only one that thinks the dale saucer shot looks like there's a man in it, possibly Capaldi, zooming through space...propelled by rocket flames coming from his hands XD
In my opinion, it's like that with all the Doctors almost without fail. He's basically been written as the same character for 50 years, with a few changes from incarnation to incarnation, and its the actor that really gives each one his own individual persona. I for one could totally picture Matt Smith delivering Hartnell's famous "One day, I shall come back," line in with own particular flair, and it totally working out. I think all the Doctors have their darker sides, but they definitely all have their comedic moments too. I'm sure Capaldi won't be an exception.
That outfit doesn't look especially Victorian...I actually think it might be the same dress Clara wore in Journey to the Center of the Tardis...could be Jenny though I suppose.

Haha I'm pretty sure everybody would love to see Clara blowing stuff up and beating up Daleks with a baseball bat!
I agree, and I'm quite excited for it! It's very gorgeous to look at.
Some people just can't stomach black and white for some reason. I loooove Hartnell personally.
The lighting makes her look a bit odd, but it's definitely Vastra.
We're all geeks here Whovians and Trekkies alike, I say we unite and make peace :) Star Trek and Doctor Who are some of the most compatible sci fi fandoms out there, there are even official crossover comics. I think fandom wars are silly, us sci fi nerds get enough trouble from mainstream society when we aren't fighting amongst ourselves.
