Bare in mind it was common knowledge that Matt Smith would be returning for season 8 until they announced otherwise. They have no problem telling us that someone's returning when they won't be.

I say that as long as you're not just killing people off (or as I like to say "pulling a Joss Whedon") for the sake of it, go ahead. If it's an important part of the plot, and something as emotional as a companion's death will be, then I look forward to it. I'm actually quite a fan of main character deaths, even though I always get deeply traumatised by them.

I honestly can't see an River and Jack show working. I mean, what would it be like? What would they do? Who would they do? Who wouldn't they do? Oh God, it disturbs me just thinking about it.

I agree 100%. Amy and Rory's non-deaths really annoyed me. I found myself thinking "Wow, Amy and Rory are dead? Maybe this episode isn't so bad after all." Then they were suddenly alive again and got a 'nicer' departure. I've got nothing against the Ponds, in fact they're two of my favourite companions, but if they'd died and stayed dead, it would have been a lot more powerful, and might have actually made their departure episode tolerable.

Yeah, I rewatched 11's final moments today. I wasn't really sad on first viewing because, as is always the case with regenerations, I was too excited to see the new Doctor to be sad about the old one leaving. On rewatching it though I let it get to me.

I'll always remember when the Doctor was you Matt.

Alternatively, you could kill off everyone but Strax. Imagine a Strax led show, it'd be... actually, as much as I love Strax, that'd be some kind of hell. Some kind of potato shaped hell.

Are they really that old? I thought McCoy was in his mid-sixties at the oldest. Why must they keep ageing. I hate to be morbid, but I don't think we'll be able to enjoy these classic Doctors for much longer. God bless them for still playing their roles for Big Finish at their age. I mean, Tom Baker is 80 and still at it.

McCoy is definetly one of the most underrated Doctors, and Ace is, well, ace. Their time on the show was classic Who at its best and ended too early. If Capaldi's era can capture a small fragment of the McCoy era in terms of atmosphere and mood (although not in terms of budget and special effects) it should be brilliant.

Now to wait and hope that Big Finish puts some 7 and Ace stories on sale to celebrate.

Personally I've never found any of the new Who post-regeneration episodes to be that spectacular. I mean, they've all been okay, but none of them have been brilliant. It can be done though, look at "Spearhead from Space". It was a post-regeneration story and a thoroughly brilliant piece of fiction. Why can't we get that I'm new Who? Hopefully "Deep Breath" won't let me down.

I absolutely agree with everything you said, the good and the bad. I've never been a big Adric fan, but it was great hearing him again none the less. Matthew Waterhouse did a surprisingly good job recapturing Adric, even if the voice was a little off. The first story was definetly better, but both were great, and they really felt like they were plucked right out of the 1980s. I loved how they almost bookended the adventures of that team, with the first story being set straight after "Castrovalva" and the second being set shortly before "Earthshock". It was a nice touch and really showed how much the team had grown over that season. All in all another cracker from Big Finish.

Oh, and I have heard "Slipback". Glad to hear I'm not the only person that has.

Never trust anyone under Moffat's rule. He plants little chips in their heads so that he can control them at press releases and interviews . Why do you think Smith and Gillan had their head's shaved last year? It wasn't for movie roles, it was to get the surgery to have the chips removed now that they were leaving the show.

Well Ecclestein wasn't a huge Who nerd like Tennant and Capaldi, both of whom are like us here on this site, but he seems to have enjoyed his time on the show for the most part, and seems pretty proud of what he accomplished. I don't think he realises though how popular he was. I get the impression he sees himself as a really forgettable Doctor, which is quite sad.

I doubt he's going anywhere. He's the biggest Who nerd ever to play the Doctor, one of us. Would he really leave his favourite show after only one series? Unless there was some big issue behind the scenes, but I doubt it. I think we still have a few more years out of him yet.

I see them as a mixed bag. Most I either like or am at least not bothered by, but a few like the Power Ranger Daleks just get under my skin. I'll remain open minded though on any change Moffat makes.

It is interesting that Moffat keeps brining in these big changes to the Daleks only to eventually drop them. I agree that the memory wipe was an interesting idea, but it seems to me like the majority of the fanbase don't want their precious pepper-post to be altered to much. I wonder how long until Moffat realises that.

Making the Daleks good is an interesting concept, but if it does happen, I doubt it would be a permanent thing. I don't think the fanbase would be too willing to accept the Doctor's oldest enemy becoming good. I think it'd be cool, but I'm not sure how others would feel.

"...could change the Daleks forever..." Yeah, because it went down so well last you changed them forever (the Power Ranger Daleks), and it didn't even last forever anyway. Still, I'm interest to see where they're going with this. I guess anything is better than "Victory of the Daleks", except for "Love and Monsters" of course.

But I think the Daleks have had some good stories. Aside from "Victory", I've quite liked all their stories, even the controversial "Daleks in Manhatten" story (why that's so unpopular I'll never understand). Hopefully this maintains the high quality that Dalek stories have mostly kept to in their 50 years on our TV screens.

I know this might sound like a random question, but is Clara bisexual? I mean, Oswin Oswald dated a girl, but said that she was "going through a phase". Then in "Clara and the TARDIS" she seemed to fancy herself, but whether that counts as bi or just creepy, I don't know. Either way she's clearly into guys. I don't really care either way, but I'm curious about what other people think.
