I personally liked it better the more alien 11 got. Neither of those two episodes are close to being my favourite, but Matt's performance in them was some of his best in my mind.

Either way, this is good news.

Wow, I always considered 11 to be very alien, so I can only imagine what 12 will be like.

I absolutely agree with everything you said. While 11 is far from my favourite Doctor and this was far from his best episode, his regeneration was still one of the best. It ranks third in my mind, under the undoubtedly brilliant 5th Doctor's regeneration and the seemingly mixed 10th Doctor's regeneration, which I loved.

It actually broke my heart(s) a little when Matt's Doctor first refered to himself as the 11th incarnation. I much prefer it to be kept slightly anonymous. This is great news.

Having said that though, in the grand scheme of the show, who cares?

"He owns New Zealand!" As a proud Australian citizen, I find jokes about New Zealand to be hilarious. But wait, if us Aussies are so superior, where's our multi-million dollar fantasy film franchise? I'd better do something about this.

Reading through these comments, am I the only one who prefers "Nightmare in Silver" over Gaiman's previous story "The Doctor's Wife"? Not to say either story was particularly good or bad, both were pretty average, but I think NiS was better.

I'm not overly bothered by this, but I do think it should be on a much smaller scale than the 50th if it does happen. Just something simple like how "The Silver Nemesis" celebrated the 25th anniversary or "Planet of the Dead" celebrated the 200th story.

I like the covers. I'm studying to be a graphic designer, so my opinion on them matters a little more than everyone else's. I am annoyed they keep changing them though. Didn't we just get a new style of cover for the last three Matt Smith books? Then they go and change them again. Non-consistent covers are the bane of my existence.

Not to mention David Mitchell was in the previous season. It's all part of Moffat's plan to slowly swap out the entire cast for people who have appeared in "Would I Lie to You?" I hear Moffat's already got Rob Brydon lined up to play the 13th Doctor. See, he thought we wouldn't notice, but notice we did.

Sounds like Davros, but it seems weird that the BBC would stick him in a trailer before announcing his return. It could just be an over eager Dalek. It does sound more like Nick Briggs to me, but who knows?

I agree completely. Look at how exited everyone was over "Asylum of the Daleks" because the Daleks hadn't appeared in two years (baring a cameo in "The Aedding of River Song"). If they were gone for four or five years, then people would get way more exited about there return and learn to appreciate them more. As is, they're just getting boring and cliche. Same goes for the Cybermen.

I really have no issue with this. What I do have an issue with is when writers like to say "he's definetly not half human" or "he definetly is half human". I like the ambiguousity of it all. Is he half-human? Was he just lying to trick the Master? Who knows.

I know the BBC Eighth Doctor Adventure novels seem to say his mother is the human woman Penelope, so it seems like there's more evidence to say he is, but with the extended fiction, who knows?

I just finished listening to the Big Finish story "The Reaping" in which the Cybermen begin converting dead bodies in a grave yard (or so it seems). Could this be a similar story?

I wonder if this means Moffat's going to kill a character off and then being them back. That would be a very original plot element, he's never done that before. Sarcasm sarcasm.

Great article, you had some brilliant points. I've never been a huge fan of this episode, but I think I like it more than the vast majority of fans. Interestingly, it's the only episode to date that features River Song that wasn't written by Moffat.

There's this phrase amongst the Transformers fandom that gets used whenever Hasbro or whoever is in charge decides to completely change everything you thought you knew about the franchise. It goes little something like "Everything you know is wrong". Can the Doctor Who fan base adopt this phrase in order to describe everything Moffat ever does?

In all seriousness though, I wouldn't really have an issue if the Time Lords were retconned into being future humans. Sure, there'd be a hundred and one continuity errors that Moffat's overlooked, but who cares? This is Doctor Who. It's a walking mess of plot holes and discontinuities and that's why we love it.

Must. Get. Up to. Date. On. Monthly. Range. In. Time. I've only just finished "The Reaping", so I have a long way to go, but at the rate I'm getting through them, I might actually be up to this one by the time it comes around.

I've not heard of this actress (mainly because the only British actors I ever know are the ones who have been in Doctor Who), but she certainly looks the part. Here's hoping for a team up between her and Alex MacQueen's audio exclusive Master. Chuck Graeme Garden's Monk in from the Eighth Doctor Adventures and we could have quite a story on our hands. Hm... Perhaps I should shoot Big Finish an email...

Well, it wasn't the worst series 7a episode, I'll give you that. That honour goes to that travesty of an episode "The Angels Take Manhatten". To be fair, I don't think "The Power of Three" was a bad episode, but it wasn't a good episode either. It was a pretty average and forgettable episode in my eyes.

Well I think it's obvious. The Master's returned and struck up an alliance with the Rani to resurrect Omega, but don't worry, the Doctor will team up with Captain Jack to save the day, and in the process be reunited with the Ponds. It also guest stars that one actor from that show you like. From what I understand, it'll be setting up a new 8th Doctor spin-off or something. Should be good.

You mentioned Dark Eyes 2! I get a little exited whenever I see a mention of Big Finish on this sight. It'd be cool of they could build on Dark Eyes on TV, like have the Master continue his battle with the Eminence or something. They'd have to be careful how they did it though as the vast majority of the audience won't have listened, or even heard of, Dark Eyes 2.

In some cases, this is true. In fact, I knew a girl who was a big fan of the show during the 10th Doctor era just because she had a huge crush on Tennant. She was never a massive nerdy fan of the show though and stopped watching once he'd left.

For the most part though, I think Colin's generalising a bit here, but I think he knows he is. After listening to many behind the scenes Big Finish interviews of him, I've learned not to take much of what he says too seriously. He's just joking around.

Good article.

In terms of likable characters, I feel the opposite way to the vast majority of people. I liked Rex right from the start, but never really liked Esther as a character. I don't know what it is about her, but I just found her to be really annoying. Miracle Day was okay, but my main issue was that it was missing that special something Torchwood always has. It didn't feel like Torchwood, it felt like just another American cop show. I'm also not a fan of the big linked story arc thing. I mean, it's okay, but I prefered series 1-2.

All in all, I feel that Miricle Day was okay, but it was a massive step down from the quality of previous seasons. Now hopefully we get a series 5.

What the heck is that Cyberman doing? I always thought "Waters of Mars" was a great episode for introducing people. It's a great story with very little story arc, and even ends on a cliffhanger to prompt them to watch more. What's not a great first story is "Logopolis", which was my first story. Sure it peaked my interest, but I was so confused when the guy in the scarf merger with some creepy ghost to become a blonde guy.

Never dismiss a rumour. Some (Tennant's return, John Hurt as 8.5 Doctor, etc.) turn out to be true. Sure, it's only 1/100. And sure, most of them are repeated every year until they actually do come true (Matt Smith's annual leaked plans to depart), but sometimes they can be true, especially when they're persistent like this one seems to be.

It sounds to me like they're aiming for someone a bit bigger than Eric Roberts. Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I don't think he's really that massive a name. Sure he's been in a few things, but I've only ever seen him in Doctor Who and he's far from a household name. I think they want someone big for the role. A really big, really well known actor. At least, that's my interpretation of the article.
