@Ava Averson @IanChestertonJr Neve McIntosh has used her native Scottish accent once only, during the bedroom scene in 'Deep Breath'.
All other times her character has spoken with an RP English accent.
So yes, you are right to be confused.
I'm surprised IanChestertonJnr listed her to make his point.

@Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! Interesting theory!
Or, he could be working on an algorithm to ensure there are many more 'round things' the next time the console room alters it's appearance ;)

@Americanwhovian I see what you mean, but i think that's why i rather liked it.
I thought the white/black (or dark blue, whichever) made him look a little like a waiter, a little stark.
The darker colour blend seems a little warmer to me :)
Ok Guys, it's quite safe now.
The Mods have been in and cleaned up all the spoiler-ish indescretions of our enthusiastic but misguided fellow posters.
All details of the spoiler pic have now been removed.
Have fun :)
@JimForbes @Mr Pink I would like to add that, at last, AztecsDaleksAndCavemen has removed the spoiler.
Pink by name, pink by wardrobe choice.
Nice shirt Danny ;)
I clicked the spoiler pic, and probably wish i hadn't.
Oops, i'm usually quite restrained ...
@sontaran17 You're right!
You can never have too many pictures of Clara :)
@AztecsDaleksAndCavemen @Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! Ok.
Slightly irked that you posted details of the hidden spoiler.
Very irked that you completely ignored my polite response to that post.
So i now feel the need to be more direct.
Please delete your spoiler post.
@Americanwhovian I don't know?
I really rather liked the purple one in 'Robot of Sherwood' :)
@AztecsDaleksAndCavemen @Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! Ok AztecsDaleksAndCavemen.
You've ignored me twice now so here's some language you may understand.
I will flag your post as spoiler unless you delete it.
@JimForbes Don't read any further down then.
The spoiler pic has been spoiled below already !!!!
@JimForbes @Mr Pink To be fair JimForbes, it wasn't Mr Pink's post that was telling us any more than the posted pictures show.
He merely comments on what we can see without clicking the spoiler pic.
The offender is AztecsDaleksAndCavemen below.
@supermoff is alone. Listen... If you really want to resist then you shouldn't read too far down the page as the contents of that picture have been posted by an ignorant idiot.
@cyberbrayde I hope 'Listen' is a brilliant episode, but i also hope it doesn't make me forget how wonderful 'Robot of Sherwood' was!!

1 month, 3 weeks ago on Into the Dalek UK Ratings
@Exalos @jchinuk You just referred to William Hartnell as 'her' ...
... You're not Strax in disguise are you? ;)
@supermoff For the most part, i concur with your list.
I would though, place 'Dalek' very slightly above tonight's admittedly fantastic 'Into the Dalek', but not much.
What i don't quite get, if you'll humour me for a minute, is your placing of 'Asylum of the Daleks', an episode that for me at least, promised so much, but delivered so little.
Dalek Oswin was a brilliant, well executed part of 'Asylum', but the Daleks themselves were little more than an over-hyped, badly used, sideshow.
Would you mind saying why you rate it so highly?
As a side-note: To Livefyre; please understand British English. It is quite irritating to find 'humour' squiggly-red underlined ... after all, this is a British web-site discussing a British show. Thanks.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Rate & Discuss Into the Dalek
@TheBeast101 Are you sure there is such a thing as a universally recognised rating 'system'?
The Daleks 'are no longer scary'?
And why is that exactly?
Most likely, because the viewer is no longer under 10 years old.
It makes me laugh sometimes.
Who fans who lament the lack of scares like they used to get, whilst seemingly overlooking the fact that they've grown up in the meantime.
We all still love watching Doctor Who, but please face facts; if you're watching a family show as an adult, it will entertain you, but it absolutely will not scare you!
Why is it no longer scary?
Because you're no longer a child!

@AaronMcGahon1 @MerieliaZ 'The Path Web, the Dalek hive mind. The Daleks share each other's memories. Daleks the Doctor has never met before will remember when he fought to avert their destruction in Genesis Of the Daleks' ... or at least would have remembered before Dalek Oswin erased their memories of him ... ;)
@doctorwhomultiverse I don't think the Daleks have been overused, they've just been badly used.
When a Dalek story is very good, no-one complains about overuse.
Unfortunately, of late until today, the Dalek outings have been mediocre.
Not many would complain about overuse if we got one Dalek story as good as this every year.
Nice to see another writer on board, to offer a different take and a refreshingly good story.
@Scootersfood Don't worry.

@Antee991166 'it would be a bit strange for her to leave after saying that'
I'm genuinely not sure why you think that, given that everyone, Moffat, cast, etc lie all the time about everything to do with the show?
As far as i can see, it's very likely to be correct!
I was always bothered by the TARDIS doors opening in the wrong direction in the previous sequence, so for me that is a good enough reason for a new one :D

Great article Elliot, i very much agree. Casual viewers (ie most viewers) will not even know about his other roles.
To be honest it would not bother me if Capaldi's previous appearances were completely overlooked.
But in order to please those who think otherwise i am certainly not opposed to a throw-away line acknowledging the fact.

@SonicTheHedgehogRules I was so surprised by Gaiman's depiction of the Cybermen in 'Nightmare in Silver'.
Not being that aware of his non-Who stuff, i allowed myself to get drawn in by the hype about his abilities as a writer and consequently expected amazingness from him.
How disappointed was i?
He is apparently a long-term fan!
If that is true then i guess he must have missed all the classic Cyberman stories, because his understanding of them is clearly nil.
'The Borg' were Star Trek's rip-off of the Cybermen, but written sufficiently differently to not be too closely compared.
How ironic then, that Gaiman should turn the Cybermen into Borg?
Why could he not have focused and expanded on that which used to make the Cybermen unique in the science fiction world?
Nightmare in Silver?
It should have been called 'Absolute Bloody Nightmare', because that's what it was for the Cybermen.

2 months, 2 weeks ago on The Curious Case of the 9th Doctor
@ClaireAbraham @Angie Whodini @NeutronFlow Ok then.
Having watched 'Day of the Doctor' would you say the John Hurt incarnation lacked 'the essential essence of the Doctor'?
@Skylord Maldon "What number of incarnations has the doctor had"
And it used to be so easy ... *sigh*
@ClaireAbraham 'the numbering system exists solely to keep us clear on which INCARNATION we are discussing'
'the best way to accomplish that is to agree that Christopher Eccleston is the Ninth Doctor'
Christopher Eccleston is the tenth incarnation.
How can that be the 'best way'?
@connellmatthews I really want to agree with you.
However, due to Moffat's storyline, Christopher Eccleston is now the 10th incarnation of the character.
@Temporal Tomato '"The War Doctor" isn't an in universe term, it was introduced by Moffat and the merchandising team, etc. as not to screw up the numbering'
Given that it was Moffat who 'screwed up the numbering' isn't your statement a little ironic?
I guess the facts of the matter are thus:
First incarnation - William Hartnell
Second incarnation - Patrick Troughton
Third incarnation - Jon Pertwee
Fourth incarnation - Tom Baker
Fifth incarnation - Peter Davison
Sixth incarnation - Colin Baker
Seventh incarnation - Sylvester McCoy
Eighth incarnation - Paul Mcgann
Ninth incarnation - John Hurt
Tenth incarnation - Christopher Eccleston
Eleventh incarnation - David Tennant
Twelfth incarnation - Matt Smith
Thirteenth (or new First) incarnation - Peter Capaldi
@Polyphase Agreed. References to the past help link the show with it's history and create a much more fluid, believable timeline for the Doctor.
It was a great shame though, that no-one at the 'Hide' read-through (looking at you Moffat!!!), corrected Matt Smith on his mis-pronunciation of 'Metebelis 3'.
That sort of sloppy mistake, undermines the whole endeavour ...

I know some won't agree with me on this, but i've been watching for almost forty years and i think Matt Smith's first console room was the most beautiful and inviting that we have ever seen.
