I'm only angry that this was a limited edition set. Now I'll never own it and I'll have to buy the standalones. :(

@Kathrin Lily Franke @Only as old Whovian as you feel - Hello Rusty As much as I'd prefer Georgia in the role, I think that could work nicely. We get her Jenny back for an episode, and a brand new face and personality to learn with Twelve as a companion.

@DocWhoFan What makes you say that? Personally, I'd like Twelve to bow out with Jenny at his side, so I can agree with that. (Don't want Twelve to go yet!)

I really liked Missy in Dark Water, she was really wonderful as the Master. After watching the reveal and then re-watching her scenes with the knowledge of her identity, you can really see that she couldn't be anyone else. But her character changed significantly in Death in Heaven. I still like her incarnation, but after that, I no longer adored her as I used to. I blame half of it on the accent change. Her English was just far more sinister than her Scottish. :(

Wow this boxset looks wonderful. I especially love the look of those cog/steampunkish graphics. As much as I love the title sequence, it makes me want something closer to those images! Beautiful.

How have they not given this wonderful man a small cameo. It would be beyond perfect to have him appear, just as a passing scene waving to the Doctor.

The statue twist in The Time of Angels really was beautiful. Classic Doctor Who at its best, pulling the rug out from under you. I definitely didn't even catch a hint of it coming.
5 days, 12 hours ago on Moffat’s Best Monsters, Tricks & Stories (So Far)
@The Finn Wow could you imagine if that was truly part of the plot! Because Clara is some sort of space-time life anomaly, to compensate for her living outside the timeline, everyone else dies around her.
5 days, 13 hours ago on Moffat Can’t Confirm Jenna Coleman for Series 9
@RossLyons Actually, that would make for quite some twist. I like that idea!
I honestly believe that three series-worth of episodes for a companion is too much. We've had Clara now for 23 episodes. I think, after Christmas, it's time for a new companion. A fresh start. It's better if a series starts with the companion as joining mid-way adds a weird disjoint I think.
I am a firm believer, after-all, that the ponds overstayed by five episodes.
@supermoff, chief of the statistics police @NotsoSmartguy @Huknar It is a shame because it only would have taken an episode in the series dealing with psychic restorative energy. And bam! The hate goes away.
6 days, 4 hours ago on New Who Finales in Perspective: Series 8
Well series 1 is just an awesome moment with a huge consequence (and that really is the key. As long as there are great journeys and notable consequences, DEMs are fine by me.)
@supermoff, chief of the statistics police @Huknar Yeah I'll admit it, I enjoy the DEMs. Though I only really regard Series 3 and Series 1's as the huge naughty ones.
@TheOncomingHurricane @Huknar Because it wraps up everything nice and neatly. There are happy endings. Sad endings. Returning villains. Returning allies and one of the most exhilarating cliffhangers I'll ever see. It was just a beautiful, beautiful ride that I look forward to every time I re-watch the series.
Unfortunately, Death in Heaven included, I've yet to watch a Moffat final and think, at the end, "Wow. That truly made for a perfect end to the series. I can't wait for the next one!"
I enjoy them, and watch as any other fan. Usually I like them better over time as I re-watch the season without expectations and see it all for what it really is. But still, I can't help but think the man doesn't write very satisfying endings. He makes marvellous, fantastic ideas and sets them up to be something truly remembered, but lets them all go out with a whimper rather than a bang. Of his though, The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang is my favourite.
But I'll say shamelessly, nothing will ever come as close to the roller-coaster masterpiece that was The Stolen Earth/Journey's End.
@Strontium @TheOncomingFish See I think we had tons of original ideas this series. Just handful, in my opinion, of rather terrible endings. In fact, this has been one of the most original seasons of Who I think we've seen.
6 days, 9 hours ago on BBC Declares Series 8 A Triumph
@Strontium Read that in Zoe Ball's announcement voice. :)
@Rainbow Kidneys Guess someone's not a Clara fan. :P
@Regenerated Catterson hails CyberBrig @Huknar Well if you don't like the ideas of the man in charge of the show, why WOULD you want him to stay?
@Strontium See I very much enjoyed Murray's work this series. However, there didn't seem to be much variety. I guess we'll see when the series eight soundtrack comes out. I thought the same of series 7's but later discovered its value. But I definitely agree with your series placement.
6 days, 10 hours ago on BBC Declares Series 8 A Triumph
@Regenerated Catterson hails CyberBrig The people who say Moffat needs to go have an opinion.
Series Eight, for me, has been the best series since the remarkable Series 4 back in 2008. It's been a reliably consistent run, with a fantastic Doctor. I hope series 9 only improves on its predecessor's success.
@parrot999 @Huknar @Ivegotkidneys I'd rather had a 50th series run than the single special we got in which case.
6 days, 11 hours ago on Capaldi Hoping for New TARDIS
@Ivegotkidneys @Huknar They were just, overall, a very bad idea. You don't split a thirteen episode series. You just don't. You split 22 episode seasons. America does it all the time.
All they did here was confuse viewers about when Doctor Who would be on and how long for. Heck, the split even cheated us out of a whole series!
Having series Eight for a full, interrupted run just proved at how frustrating those splits were. Hopefully this is the format for the future.
Twelve episodes with an extended opener and final, running in the autumn.
6 days, 12 hours ago on Capaldi Hoping for New TARDIS
@Ivegotkidneys @Huknar Please don't remind me of that dreadful time they did "series splits". Goodness no. :)
@TheNameOfTheDoctor Ooh no. Purple would look fabulous! That would be very Twelve.
@TheNameOfTheDoctor Even if they just swap out the green gem for an orange one, or something.
As exciting as a new TARDIS is, I don't want this for Capaldi. I'm of the opinion that each Doctor should have their own TARDIS and title sequence for their run. Chris only stayed one series, so it makes sense David shared everything with him. I was annoyed they changed Matt's frankly beautiful console and titles, as much as I enjoy the current one. But since Eleven barely had it, like Christopher, makes sense that this is now going to be Twelve's. Sorry Capaldi. Just want some bookended stability.
@conallmc2013 Now that could have been a beautiful story. Clara entering the Doctor's timestream caused a universal invasion of reapers trying to repair her damage.

@The Lazy Cat's Soufflé Was too Beautiful to Live It gets worse. Come Time of the Doctor, that whole timeline never even happened. How the HECK is the universe still standing?
6 days, 13 hours ago on New Who Finales in Perspective: Series 7
@Aztecs, Daleks and Cavemen I'm glad someone else sees this.
@Pockydon You don't need to understand it. Heck I'm still trying to come to terms why people love Listen. What matters is that you enjoy it, whether others don't or not. :)
1 week, 1 day ago on New Who Finales in Perspective: Series 6
@TardisBoy wants you to say something nice... It also didn't help that I hated Clara back then I guess.
@Planet of the Deaf See I don't think Name makes a very good final. Sure the first minute of the episode featuring all the Doctors and the closing minutes are fantastic, but it just fell very flat to me, what with a poor choice of villain. That and Wedding are two of my least favourite finals.
@NotsoSmartguy is trapped in the Spiderverse @Huknar @supermoff Actually I think Death in Heaven takes that biscuit. The Master actually lets the Doctor win, standing there and watching while he does it.
@NotsoSmartguy is trapped in the Spiderverse @supermoff But far, far, far, far, far, FAR less fun and interesting and unique.
I hate this final immensely. The resolution killed it for me. Made the whole episode feel entirely pointless, and the whole arc too. A robot Doctor? Please. You might as well have had him wake up at the end of the series after having dozed off on Lake Silencio, to find that we've been watching nothing more than a dream.
However, I can't help but want to cry when River reveals what those "solar flares" were, hundreds and hundreds of replies wanting to help the Doctor in his time of need. It's just beautiful.
@Regenerated Catterson hails CyberBrig @Huknar Not really a repeated storyline. That was ABOUT a quest to erase them. This would be about the fallout of that, with the beautiful revelation that as much as the Doctor doesn't want to, he has to restore them to the universe.
1 week, 1 day ago on Moffat: Daleks Are Not A Contractual Obligation
@Regenerated Catterson hails CyberBrig @Huknar That's correct.
@NotsoSmartguy is trapped in the Spiderverse @The Lazy Cat's Soufflé Was too Beautiful to Live Well the Silence very much stole the appearance of Slenderman.
You know what could be beautiful. If we don't see the daleks for at least two years and their next story is about them somehow, by something, being erased from time and space. Way to work in a time gap into the actual story! :)
@Gustaff @Huknar @Antee991166 Ah yes. That was unfortunate.
@supermoff @Huknar @KingoftheOod4450 What part of penultimate story didn't you catch. ;) Not episode. Story. Daleks would be the forerunner to an even greater threat. But I do want another dalek final in a few years time too.
@The Lazy Cat's Soufflé Was too Beautiful to Live Celestial Toymaker! I beg of his return. Heck, he'd work fabulously in a Christmas story. (But then at the same time, daleks at christmas. Now that sounds fun!) He is after-all a rather omnipotent being from another universe.
@Gustaff @Huknar @Antee991166 3 out of 4? How did you come to that conclusion?
@KingoftheOod4450 Indeed. Let them be the antagonists of the series 10 penultimate story, leading into a bombastic, stakes raised final. :)
@Gustaff @Antee991166 Far, far too long. The gap should never be longer than two years. Moffat is right.
