Random trivia. Did you know that, as far as IMDB goes, the cast and crew of Star Trek: The Original Series never overlaps with the cast of the classic series of Doctor Who, yet the revived series of Doctor Who has seven cast/crew members in common with the two reboot Star Trek movies alone. 



Just goes to show how things have changed over the years; how US and UK film and television are becoming closer and closer. The point at which they meet, of course, being Game of Thrones. That still boggles me. HBO show, only British actors.


EDIT: I retract my statement about Game of Thrones. There's literally no American actors in that except Peter Dinklage I think.

@supermoff I just can't believe that people are like this. I've always thought the whole "UK vs US" wangst was just a joke on TV.

@TARDlSkey I think it might also be that an American director directed the Series 8 finale? Either way, baseless statement.

Maybe they can bring in actual sci-fi elements if they get the BBC on board again. For instance, actually taking a trip in the TARDIS. Or maybe something completely different.

I think articles like this shouldn't have criticisms of characters in them. If I wrote one, I probably wouldn't whine about Rose like I do on occasion. :\

@DaftDalek Cage is a great actor, actually. He just picks some bad roles and acts badly. 


But he can act really well. It's why he's won an Oscar. I think he'd be a good Nine if he put his heart in it.

This definitely has to be about the trio trying to get into Series 8. Paul should have a greater role too! Although half the joke last time was that he was greenscreened in due to actual real-life filming committments.

@awkward912 @Ryan Nicholson Indeed. I hardly consider it Doctor-lite for that very reason. The Doctor is there throughout and has a big presence in the episode despite very little screentime.

@ilyootha @Mikeyboss182 @Notsosmartguy the Superior Venom While I would like to see Capaldi have this sonic for Series 8, I agree he needs a new one. In the new series, the sonic screwdriver has become the iconic gadget. 

Also the BBC needs more money from merchandising.

@Galax @The Finn I'd say the majority of DWM's fanbase are Classic Who fans. And TCH had a lot of the Classic Who tropes while TROA had almost none. It's an interesting representation of tastes within the fandom.
