@TardisBoy Saying "It's just a joke, smile a bit" or something along those lines is just as bad and makes a person more infuriated than it does anything to calm them. Sometimes all people ask for is a bit of empathy, for people to show that they understand they are frustrated by something whether that frustrates you yourself or not.

@TardisBoy Don't you think that if this person is getting more and more agitated by people "having jokes" the better thing to do is stop having jokes, calm them down and apologise for them not finding your humour funny, but insulting? Rather than just provoking them? You are not making it any better.

@Gustaff I'm only liking for the content. This would not irritate fans at all because this is established within the show already.

Okay, so the problem I have with this statement isn't the statement itself, it's the fact he's throwing it out there as if we all didn't know, for the most part (disregarding a few cases in his own era). We only use the numbers for ourselves and for us to distinguish the different faces and personalities of each incarnation. We're not "all wrong", because very few of us doubted the fact the man is one character, as firmly established time and time again in the show. 

So this feels like he's making something out of a problem that never was, which does damage my respect for him whether it was a indeed a joke. Believe it or not, there are some of us who do not like this sort of humour.

@sontaran17 This is arguable. Each doctor exhibits brand new personality traits, while keeping a few elements, and they are quite few, of all the Doctors past. While he might be the same man, with the same memories, the Doctors might as well be different characters for their difference in portrayal.

@YaelMoise I have to agree. The only thing I can see in The War Doctor's room is a hark back to Three's. The scientists room. Much like his view on the sonic screwdriver. Cold scientific viewpoint. The visible wires is very obviously a "straight to the point, do anything you have to, no prettying-up" attitude.

I was half expecting the Lodger/Silence's TARDIS. Despite not being entirely sure how, or why they have it (it might not even be theirs!) it's still a very interesting control room. Got to love those coffin-shaped control panels.

I was always very disappointed the TARDIS changed again for Matt. I loved his first console room more. It was superb. Just like his outfit change, I felt it was't needed(though of course knowing they changed studio, but still they could have tried to rebuild the old one!). I am more upset about the costume change though. His purple jacked and waistcoat suits Capaldi so, so much better (really, go check out the photos of him wearing it!). At least he keeps the waistcoat for some of his outfits though! 

As much as I am pleased about the change of colour from cyan to orange, I think the lights need to be more colourful. They need even more orange in them rather than the white they have toward the middle. Just take the cyan image in this article and apply an orange colour-change to it and it would be perfect. Moody, but still warm. That and the round lights need to be completely orange too. The blue is a bit of an eyesore. 

I think what's most exciting and fitting about orange as a colour is that it's very much a Time Lord colour. Orange regeneration energy. Orange Gallifrey. And for that reason I love it. :)

@Ivegotnewkidneys on the 23rd I think series 8 will be serious and a bit gritty, with darker elements, but not be a dark series. Series 3 with touches of series 6.

@Notsosmartguy approves of female thor @Christoph1337 @Gustaff I personally get the leaf, and it makes sense, I think it just spoils Eleven's scene a bit. Imagine if instead Rings was the regeneration episode. What a wonderful way for the Doctor to bow out.

@YaelMoise @Huknar Believe me I'm not an optimist. I watched every episode of series 7 expecting the worst. My standards had never been lower (and it still failed to deliver, which was soul-crushingly upsetting.) It's just, when you disliked a lot of aspects about an era, specifically just how tongue-in-cheek and unserious it became, seeing a return to the form you loved with more and more evidence for that to be the case, it fills someone like me with excitement and hope. But just look at the lineup:

A Doctor cast with the same actor you prayed for during the wait for the announcement. 

The tone of the show ditching silly and fairytale and becoming darker and serious. 

Something about the title sequence I cannot say here. 

No series split 

An episode written by Phil Ford, co-writer of one of the best episodes the show has ever seen (The Waters of Mars) (Although this is a risky thing to get excited about after seeing what happened with Gaiman last series.)

A feature-length opening episode (Eighty minutes apparently!) 

And lastly a two part final again featuring the Cybermen at last! 

Forgive me for being excited and optimistic about all the good news.

@YaelMoise @Huknar Series 3 was one of the most dangerous, grittiest forays for the Doctor. I believe that the final is the darkest one we've had yet. One of the first times I had the dreadful feeling of  no hope, and I think the example with Martha is indeed along the lines of what we might be seeing. Series 6, I won't lie is pretty grim, but in a much more fairytale, magical way, and I think series 8 will be a perfect mix between the two.

@YaelMoise  Four years of fairy-tale, consequence-lite, silly (Not meant to be derogatory) Doctor Who. No. I don't agree. It's about time we had this change. Series 3 was onto something. It wasn't the right time to do it then but now it surely is.

I love Moffat right now. I never thought I'd say it, but for me, he's really getting his act together. Let's just hope this is not an unfulfilled promise. Series 8 looks to be the best series New Who has ever seen.

Get them to wipe out each other. (Or maybe the Time War was a distraction for both races for the Shakri to do something far more sinister.)

@ThePaternosterGangAreAwesome After having watched the episode today I can confirm this and have a slightly different attitude towards the screwdriver in this story. That's not to say the ending isn't still rushed and very convenient (and why did they take those humans? What on earth for? Testing? The cubes did all that!) 

I personally would have much preferred seeing Eleven hack away at the computer as that is much more fun to watch.

To be honest, I'm rather more interested in a sonic screwdriver redesign. I was never keen on how big it became. Much prefered Nine/Ten's design.
