Lord Styro the Drashig
I like paleontology, Doctor Who, Jurassic Park, and some other things.
So August 23 is an extremely busy day for me, and to accommodate Deep Breath I've basically had to plan my schedule a month in advance hour by hour in order to fit everything in. Then this comes along. I can hear by inner monologue: "Schedule? You don't need one of those. Other duties to fulfill? Nope. Movie instead."

Just came home after a week without internet access to find a new DW trailer. I may have squeaked a little when I saw the T. rex.

Whenever I hear people complaining about how "Doctor Who isn't the same anymore, this new stuff is stupid and they should have left it the way it was" etc. etc., I will now direct them to this article. Because this is absolutely 100% on the dot. Nicely written.

I love the tiny details on the TARDIS console here, like the little blue sparks of electricity. Goes to show that they really put lots of love into these trailers.
3 weeks ago on Series 8: New Teaser Trailer “I see into your soul, Doctor”
So, what if it's the Dalek Inquisitor General (aka Dalek X?)? Prisoner of the Daleks is still one of my favorite DW novels of all time and I'd be ecstatic if they adapted some of it for Series 8.
Both my excitement and confusion increase exponentially with each update this page gets.

Nah, she has to be Omega.

I would've put "Binro was right" on top of the list, but I suppose that's just me. :P

So the first episode is called "Deep Breath"? Intriguing. Also, Capaldi is awesome.
4 weeks ago on Series 8 Airdate Confirmed, New Trailer & Image
I'm guessing that it's just a typo - the official release date would have been announced with a lot more fanfare, anyway.
Aw. Oh well. Still, I guess it makes sense - they'll still be filming/editing episodes by the time ComicCon rolls around. Moffat and co. need all the time they can get.

I saw the picture and the title...and then I saw that it was Big Finish, which is just as good really. :P

I very much hope that Neil Cross is the remaining writer.

I'm still hoping that it's Christopher Lee.

Don't know the name, but I most certainly know the voice. Excited to see what role he'll play. (I'm betting he's some sort of sadistic computer. You can never have enough sadistic computers.)

If this isn't a Prince of Thieves reference I don't know what is.

That cover looks amazing. I hope they keep it.

I'm trying to do the same thing, but Livefyre keeps telling me that I'm trying to post "malformed content". Any idea why?

At least it's better than standing in a field dressed as a scarecrow for no reason at the start of an episode. :P
Part of me is reminded of the Arrow of Law from The Coming of the Terraphiles. Granted, that arrow was silver.

I have a feeling that Day will pull through rather strongly, so I'm going to vote for my other favorite, A Christmas Carol.
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Series 1-7 Face-Off: Moffat Specials
All great episodes, but for once, the choice is obvious. Gadget gadget.
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Series 1-7 Face-Off: RTD Specials
I basically chose at random and got Parting of the Ways. Couldn't really choose any other way; they're all great episodes (and I never really got the hate for LOTTL, btw).
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Series 1-7 Face-Off: Episode 13
At first I thought this was going to be an exceptionally tough choice...but then I realized that The Stolen Earth was an Episode 12.

Heck yes. He was one of the best parts of Primeval. I'm really looking forward to seeing him in action.
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Ben Miller Cast as Villain in Series 8
I really, really, really love The God Complex, but it seems to be getting enough support here, so I'll vote Utopia (which I also really, really, really love).
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Series 1-7 Face-Off: Episode 11
Well played, Moffat. Well played.
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Why Does the TARDIS Dislike Clara? Moffat Teases Answers
This is an insanely difficult choice, but I'm going to go with what my heart says and choose Midnight. (Sorry, Vincent.)

Voted for Hide, but most of the rest of them come pretty close.

I keep getting Turlough, dunno how you guys are getting so lucky.
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Moffat Explains Doctor’s Timey Tomb
IMO it could theoretically work, but it would have to be written absolutely perfectly each and every time for it to be any good.
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Could the TARDIS Become a Permanent Companion?
Father's Day is fantastic. The Impossible Planet is fantastic. Human Nature is fantastic. Oh dear. I think I'm going to vote Impossible Planet though, if I may play Devil's Advocate here a bit. (And wow, looking at I what I just wrote now, that was entirely unintentional yet perfect at the same time :P)
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Series 1-7 Face-Off: Episode 8
I'm utterly torn between A Good Man Goes to War and The Rings of Akhaten. Can they be a jshared best? :P
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Series 1-7 Face-Off: Episode 7
I just wanted to point out that just because a character has the same name as a previous character, it doesn't mean that they're the same character. Not every DW character with the name of Mike has ended up being Mike Yates, after all :P
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Doctor Who Series 8 (2014): What We Know UPDATE
Dalek is an almost perfect DW story, if I say so myself. It was the also the episode that really got me hooked onto the show, so it holds a special place in my heart because of that fact.

Kate O'Mara, too? Such a shame. RIP to them both.

Flesh and Stone, most definitely. One cannot praise Iain Glen enough.

The polls get more painful as we go along. Ultimately I went for The Doctor's Wife, but not without a gritting of teeth and much deliberation.

A Jane Austen story? Don;t exactly see how that would work. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies already exists. :P

Have to go with The Shakespeare Code for this one, although Tooth and Claw very nearly edged it out.
4 months ago on Series 1-7 Face-Off: Episode 2
This is a cool new series. Gonna have to go with The Eleventh Hour for best opener. New Earth is IMO the weakest one out of these, though through no real fault of its own mind you. It's just simply because the others were even better.

Oh hey, I like this. As it happens I wrote up something similar after TTOTD (pastebin(dot)com/zB8bUtyi), but your article is a bit more coherent :P

Funny how close TIA/DOTM and TNOTD got to each other. One more vote in either direction and I bet they would have switched places.

And let's not forget Tom Baker, who perfectly embodies the character of the Doctor by simply existing.

I kind of expected DOAS to land here as well, even though I
don’t really get why many people dislike it so much. It was a great romp of an
episode. Plus there were dinosaurs in it. :3
Also, I can’t be the only one that thought John Riddell is
totally the DW equivalent of Robert Muldoon.

Kind of miffed to see Victory of the Daleks so low in the poll, but oh well.
4 months, 1 week ago on Best of Matt Smith: Results (39-34)
9/10, although in reality it's something like a 9.4 or 9.5/10. The "movie-a-week" approach may have created some pacing problems for the series, but it definitely had an impact on the visual effects. IMO Series 7 has some of the best visuals in Doctor Who ever.
