Reversing the polarity of debate ...!
@Planet of the Deaf @Richard Elliot 'the first Matt Smith TARDIS interior wasn't easily dismantled and rebuilt, so they built a new one'
A great shame that.
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.

I've really enjoyed your series of articles Richard, such a shame you've exhausted the list of console rooms.
I'd love to see your obvious talents tackle another subject ...
2 days, 10 hours ago on How does the TARDIS reflect The Doctor? (Part 3)
What a delight.
What a splendid, thoughtful, wonderfully articulated article!
A breath of fresh air every so often does wonders for the respiration.
This superb essay has had a similar effect on my cognition.
I'm really sorry that i have no time now to actually enter the discussion, but i just need to say this ...
Amazing stuff, Mr Ryanazza, very much looking forward to your next endeavour.
Well done mate, bring it on!!

@Amy is Hannibal 'That first one was an honest question. People misinterpreted it completely.'
Silly me, of course they did. Obviously it wasn't Moffat's fault.
Clearly it was down to the hundreds or possibly thousands of fans who reacted (quite predictably) to his statement.
Most commenters here understand the danger of posting inflammatory remarks, it is one of the codes of conduct to which we (mostly) subscribe.
Are you really trying to convince me that Moffat is/was unaware that saying these things would have the effect we've all witnessed on at least two occasions now?
Reading through your posts, here and on other articles, it is clear to me that you are a Moffat apologist, that in your eyes he can do no wrong.
Often he does good things, but these off the cuff comments that ignite the fandom in conflict are at best naive, and at worst purposely contrived to achieve said effect.
6 days, 20 hours ago on Moffat Questions “Twelfth Doctor” Title
This Moffat wind-upery is becoming really tiresome now.
Last time it was 'no-one actually said the Doctor isn't human', and now, this.
Both statements clearly designed to cause conflict amongst the fandom.
Moffat is behaving like the really annoying kid that no-one likes at school, who gets pleasure from winding others up and seeing them argue and fight as a result.
Childish and ridiculous.
I've an idea Mr Moffat. Unless you have something interesting or relevant to say, please say nothing and just get on with your job.

@YaelMoise @NeutronFlow Indeed YaelMoise.
Acting royalty, AND a very nice bloke
2 weeks, 1 day ago on McGann: Charles Dance Would Be a Great Master
@bl0ndie98 I too would like that.
It would create a great continuity of events and imho much more preferable than merely recasting and starting afresh.
@YaelMoise At least you took the time to present your thoughts eloquently ;D
@Huknar I could use a Dance Master.
My quickstep and paso doble are atrocious.
@Regenerated Catterson I would like to see a handover (regeneration) on screen.
I think continuity is served much better this way than if some new guy just turns up claiming to be the Master.
We've seen the Doctor dance ...
...it's definitely time to have the Master Dance !!
@TheNightmareChild sees into your soul! @Polyphase I agree that being present during the Time War must have been a burden.
But the impression i got from 'Night of the Doctor', was that he made the decision to be 'Doctor no more' in order to actively take part in it, rather than to stay on the sidelines as he'd done until then.
So the way i see things, he didn't really participate in the Time War and certainly didn't think he'd destroyed his own race as mistakenly suggested by our friend Polyphase (who i like enormously btw and wouldn't want to offend) :)
2 weeks, 2 days ago on How Far Into Darkness will the 12th Doctor Take Us?
@Polyphase Surely you mean since the War Doctor?
Going into Harkness?
First a Dalek, and now Captain Jack. That should please his fans.
I do hope they use an upper orifice though, and not where he keeps his gun ...
@Planet of the Deaf @Master Michael Moon Haha!
Seriously though, he won't join The Darkness.
It was the 10th Doctor who believed in a thing called love.
@The Mind Probe @ShameOnSM 'late McCoy'?
Blimey. I didn't even know he'd been ill.
@Timhogan @TheNightmareChild sees into your soul! I think you've nailed it with that comment Mr Hogan.
Knowing timey-wimey Moffat as we do, that seems very likely to be what will happen on screen.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Series 8 Launch Trailer Breakdown
@Seaborn W Deadman Apparently they would broadcast Who on Poosh.
But they can't find it.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on An Audience with Capaldi & Coleman, Seoul World Tour Updates
@Doctor Who-The Master I bet it's not broadcast on Clom.
@Notsosmartguy sells propane and propaneaccessories Of course we can, Doctor-san.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Weird and Wonderful
@YaelMoise @NeutronFlow @JuanDiegoYoungEguren In hindsight i agree.
He's probably new here and hasn't had to read it a gazillion times like we have.
Please don't be put off commenting Juan, just try to be a little more inventive next time ;)
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Why does the Doctor LOOK human?
@JuanDiegoYoungEguren @YaelMoise No disrespect intended Juan, but i for one feel that the day that that tired old cliche falls into a black hole never to be seen or heard again, cannot come soon enough ...
@JamesVaughan Wow, which man is that?
I bet he's incontinent and has very few teeth ...
@doctorwhomultiverse I thought Gwen was a direct descendant.
@Fadedeathdave @NeutronFlow You're clearly a fan of Doctor 8 and i promise i'm not trying to offend you.
For me however, i consider everything seen or heard on TV Who only, as official canon.
Therefore even though the companions (for me) are official, the audio adventures (for me) are not.
I'm sure these people had many adventures with the Doctor.
Just not necessarily those documented by Big Finish.
I hope this clarifies my position :)
@Planet of the Deaf That cracked me up :D
@Fadedeathdave @NeutronFlow I'm sorry, but the fact i stated above won't allow me to agree.
But you are perfectly entitled to your own head-canon :)
@Fadedeathdave As far as i can see, it was only the companions of the eighth Doctor who were introduced into the TV canon ;)
@Clara Laurinda @NeutronFlow Yes, and it was honest and brilliant.
Really enjoyed it Laurinda :)
I have to be honest, the Doctor's human appearance has never really bothered me.
In fact i always found it flattering that although he is a Time-Lord he looks like us. It made it much easier to pretend to be the Doctor when i was a child. Obviously not these days though, honest ;)
Intriguing article though Vincente-Phillippe :)
Jolly good. been looking forward to this ... :)
A shame we couldn't comment on Laurinda's excellent article though!
@TARDlSkey @Huknar @NeutronFlow I wonder if DWTV has suspended new registrations for the time being. That would give a temporary firewall around us while this leak is fresh.
3 weeks, 3 days ago on The 3rd Doctor: Five Favourites
@MrRazza, the Trainee Omega Identifier *gives round of applause to DWTV*
@MrRazza, the Trainee Omega Identifier Indeed!!
@Huknar @TardisBoy I half agree with you, lol.
The Draconians were excellent for the 1970's but the Ogrons, erm, were actually a bit rubbish :D
@TardisBoyYes it would be a shame and tbh i'm pleased we can comment, but it really has to be all or nothing, particularly while the issue is this fresh.
I don't believe any of the regulars would do it, but as i said before, it only takes one idiot passing through.
Excellent article. I guess it's obvious from my name that i'm a huge Pertwee fan :)
Not wishing to be negative, but i wonder, Is it wise to restore commenting so soon?
It only takes one malicious idiot to post something about Series 8 ...
@ClaireAbraham Hello Claire, nice to meet you!
Don't be bored. There's a fifty year back catalogue for you to explore!
I sometimes envy more recent Who fans and the massive goody-bag of treats that await them :)
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Why We love Doctor Who
@MrRazza, the Trainee Omega Identifier Hahaha!
Seriously though Mr R. Michael Grade, Timelash, The Abzorbaloff and Mel may well be irredeemable!
And you omitted The Twin Dilemma.
Unforgivable ... ;)
They should upgrade the voice with 'voice of the enemy' Nick Briggs and his ring modulator.
Director, 'Ok Nick, new Zarbi voice, give us your best shot!'.
Nick Briggs: 'Bleep, bleep, bleep'.
4 weeks ago on Are the Big Enemies Being Overused?
@MalohkehLol, i love your irony, but wait! I don't know?
Updated, 2014 Zarbi?
Obviously more believable than the 'men in ant suits' of the '60s, infect all ants on Earth with high intelligence, who then do all sorts of disturbing things in order to overcome the human race.
I mean, something as innocuous and simple as ants invading one's kitchen is pretty unpleasant. Imagine the possibilities!
Seriously could be quite itchingly, skin crawlingly horrific! ;)
@Amy is HannibalHooray, at last we agree :}
@Amy is HannibalYour interpretation of that scene is duly noted.
When all we have to communicate with on the internet are words, i would suggest that in order to be fully understood, semantics are particularly important.
@Amy is HannibalSurely, not 'asked', but 'demanded' ?
@Malohkeh @NeutronFlow @Amy is HannibalAs you said, win-win.
As i said, bonus!
@Malohkeh @NeutronFlow @Amy is HannibalIndeed. But leaving him to die was the bonus, not the motive (as suggested above by our friend AiH }
@Amy is HannibalThey weren't faking it.
They 'trapped' him because they needed his help. In fact, the issue should be, 'Wasn't it too easy to obtain The Doctor and his companions?'.
@TheNightmareChild... is Boe Derek @NeutronFlow @SteviePennyLol Mr Nightmare, i cannot argue with that.
Let us hope then, that Moffat leaves no 'stone' unturned in realising their potential :} Maybe he'll convince me to change my mind ... ;}
@TheNightmareChild... is Boe Derek @NeutronFlow @SteviePennyI appreciate your polite response but also respectfully disagree!
I feel that to their detriment, everything that was added to the Angels, conversely, actually took something away and diminished their effectiveness.
@TheNightmareChild... is Boe Derek @SteviePennyI think you're right.
Frankly, the Angels have never lived up to their original outing in 'Blink'.
They should have been a one-off enemy and left at that.
For some foes, less is definitely more.
