Lord Styro the Drashig
I like paleontology, Doctor Who, Jurassic Park, and some other things.
That main menu looks absolutely gorgeous.

I understand what you're saying, but we just have extremely little (and by extremely little I mean almost nothing) to go on if we want to compare his character to that of the other Masters.

To be fair, all he did was stand there with a silly hat on his head, and he didn't even have a single line. :P

Though he doesn't really match up to the "Big Three", Peter Pratt merits an honorable mention, cause despite looking like a piece of burnt toast he managed to be deliciously evil.

And he was sort of an odd mish-mash of Delgado and Ainley that worked pretty well, oddly enough.

As soon as the poll loaded I voted for Delgado. A brilliant classic. Though Jonathan Pryce comes pretty close. :P
"some people may be surprised that Series 7 is the least divisive series of the Moffat era, but it’s because almost all the scores for Series 7 were in the 7/10 to 8/10 range, with very few episodes scoring above or below these boundaries." That's what I really liked about Series 7 - it was consistent. Glad to see Series 8 snapping at its heels though :)

He's Saint Nick for a reason.

See if we were allowed three choices out of the eight or something this poll would be a lot easier. :P

Pretty much. I guess people don't like fairy dust Doctor. :P
I can understand why people have problems with the Series 3 finale (and the Series 4 finale for that matter) but the same time I find it odd that they get as much hate as they do. They've got some sizable flaws but plenty else to enjoy as well.
I don't think they can remember.
Meanwhile, the SOD/LOTTL gang is stuck in a birdcage.
There's no such thing as worst, just least best ;)
I always thought The Bells of Saint John doesn't get much attention. People seem to like it but it's rarely discussed. If that counts as underrated.

More evil than usual though :P On the face of it it's pretty simple, to rank the finales. But you've got just ONE vote.

The "two heads" twist is still one of the most brilliant moments in all of television.

Oh dear. Now this is evil.
Still waiting for the Tissue Compression Eliminator to make a reappearance one day...

If we could get a Majenta Pryce type of companion in the TV series proper, I'd be over the moon.

Welp. This is a tough one.
In polls like this I think it's justified - but when it comes to longer discussions there's certainly no requirement to pick sides. The middle ground is always an option :)

Peter Capaldi is the Doctor. A hit, a palpable hit.
The lipstick might very well be hallucinogenic.

And now I'm listening to the song itself and it actually fits the episode quite well. Funny that.
Perhaps, although I suspect if that's the case, Moffat's just going to go and kill her all over again.
Having now seen both episodes of the story as a whole I can give it a confident 9/10. Not perfect, but pretty amazing all the same.
Dear old Wilfred Mott survived one global invasion of the Master, he'd sure as heck pull through another one unscathed.
And now both the opening and end credits are getting sassy with the audience. I chuckled.
Thank goodness for that. Osgood I could (just about) handle, but if Kate stayed dead....nope. Not even gonna think about that.

I can't even right now.
Marilyn Monroe maybe? From A Christmas Carol.
"Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!" or some equivalent thereof.
I've been waiting for a scary Christmas episode for a long time.
Just wanna say that Seb had the best last words of any Doctor Who character, ever.
...Suddenly Nick Frost.
She was delightfully sadistic-sounding, wasn't she? But IMO nothing beats "Now I can say I was provoked."
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Face-Off: Utopia vs Dark Water
The music was the best part of that scene.
Regardless of the story quality of the S8 finale, I always thought Utopia held up fine on its own. Certainly when I first watched it, I thought it was a nice little story about the end of humanity. And then a certain watch appeared, and the volcano blew sky-high.
You won't regret it. Personally, I found Children of Earth to be one of the best pieces of television ever, full stop.
This was pretty much my exact situation. The whole arc was brilliantly executed.
Personally, I suspect Dark Water's cliffhanger will also be remembered for a long time. But I still think Utopia's ending surpasses it.
Well, he's been a cat and a giant gloopy snake, so bugs can't be far behind, right?
Now I'd like to see Captain Jack and Strax together.
One of the best episodes of the best series of the show, as a matter of fact. :)
To be fair, I have heard that the return of the Master in 2007 was one of the worst kept secrets of the year - or at least everyone suspected it. I wasn't on the Internet back then, so I don't have firsthand evidence of course.
Regardless of however amazing Dark Water was, Utopia remains to this day even more amazing. Those last ten minutes are a rollercoaster ride of pure adrenalin. So that's where my vote's going.
