@DrWhoGoesThere @TheCapaldiMasterplan @Huknar But in the past they've said fourteen episodes when producing a thirteen episode series and a Christmas Special. Plus, there's the fact that there wouldn't be much space in the schedule for thirteen episodes from September, a gap, then a Christmas Special. Also, with the amount of cuts the BBC have to make, it's not really a stretch at all to assume they're cutting back on episode orders for shows.

@Master Michael Moon What have you done... This may end up being the resolution!

@JJ2000 @Galax @ryandenyer97 He hasn't returned since that two-parter. Galax means his return after the awful Fear Her.

@MowTheFrontLawn @Liana21 But so did A Good Man Goes To War and Let's Kill Hitler.
@DrWhoGoesThere @TheCapaldiMasterplan @Huknar Which is why it's assumed that there will only be twelve episodes in Series Eight because there has been a Christmas Special every year since 2005.
@DoronGrossmanNaples @Amy the Consulting Key Ring There's a difference between healing a minor injury and keeping someone alive. Also, pretty sure he would still have regeneration energy left because it's a part of him, he just wouldn't have enough to regenerate.
@AdamTheAstronaut Eleven and Twelve. Thirteen will be the Christmas Special judging by the rumours.
@DW_girl ...I think I need to go and vomit.

@TardisBoy Like the ending of The Beast Below with Churchill, leading into Victory of the Daleks.
@thebluetooth @Galax But Ford pretty much wrote The Waters of Mars on his own, with RTD making minor changes. Plus, Ford is a fantastic writer anyway (looking at The Thirteenth Floor from Wizards vs Aliens here, two of the best episodes from British TV last year).
@Pockydon Jeez, no. Both of his episodes were much worse than The Almost People and Asylum of the Daleks. They're only saved from being the worst ever by Love and Monsters existing.
@Huknar I'm pretty sure it will have one or two, but with only twelve episodes it'd be pretty hard to fit three two-parters in.
@Doctor Who Fan 1 To 12 Could be that the finale is the only two-parter of the series. It would make a nice change to have a bunch of standalone episodes leading up to a big conclusion.
@Galactic Yo Yo Especially The Sign of Three which (given that it was written by all three of them) could have easily been mainly written by Mark. Although The Blind Baker did suck, with capital U to emphasise the ugh-ness.
@JJ2000 I hate to be so rude, but it needs saying:
"It's just a friends club now" - right, because no other era of Doctor Who has featured the same writers over and over again?
"They have helped ruin Doctor Who" - the fact that the show has never been as popular in its history as it is under Moffat disagrees with your hyperbolic statement.
"Jenna has only had two good episodes" - says you. Try using an actual fact next time. "this show is dead" - again, its audience has never been as large as it is under Moffat. "I am sad it's leaving" - leaving what?
"the right writers aren't being chosen to write good episodes and that they aren't putting any effort into it, they are just writing stupidly and ridiculously and just absolute utter rubbish" - again, says you. Many will disagree and it's incredibly rude to say they aren't putting any effort into it. They've put more effort into their episodes than you did into proofreading both that sentence and your argument.
"come back and save it" - again, it doesn't need saving.
"my schools one of the biggest in the country and Doctor Who used to get the most results for favourite tv programme" - and in the grand scheme of things, your school means nothing to the BBC or Steven Moffat
"many people don't like it as much anymore" - many people will disagree
"Please can somebody save Doctor Who ... for all of our sakes!" - it doesn't need saving!
Sure Moffat's era has both good and bad episodes, just like every era in the show's history, but Doctor Who has never been more popular which isn't a sign that the show needs saving, but that the show is in the right hands (I was going to say 'saved' but the show hasn't needed saving since the 80s).

@DasManiac We will get it, just we have to pay more because it will be imported from the US even though it's a British produced comic.

@Moxx I've already thought up the story as to how his adopted brother ended up returning to Earth and unleashing the Chitauri army on New York.
1 week, 5 days ago on A Study of Pink: Speculation on Danny
@Rani Nose @TheCapaldiMasterplan @LeightonWestwoo They didn't when Mark appeared as Brian, or Arthur back in 2009, or even Jemma as Kate. Nothing's changed in the last five years. The fact that they've made a formal announcement about him appearing in the show means his character will be significant (companion/villain) otherwise there wouldn't be a point.

@LeightonWestwoo If he were a recurring character like Craig, or the Brigadier, or even River, they wouldn't have made a formal announcement about his casting. That's what suggests that he'll be more than just a once-in-a-while character. Besides, it'd be good to finally have a properly used black male for a companion.

@TheOncomingFish @TheCapaldiMasterplan Over at Doctor Who Locations, under Series 8 Filming (which hints at more scene/s between these two tomorrow) :)
