Favourite Companion: Lucie Miller
Love & Monsters is brilliant - forget the haters.
Writers could be given more room for story development if we had multi-part stories. I would sacrifice more stories for more quality. Season 7 Pertwee - Great quality and only four stories.

@MaraBackman @ Notsosmartguy: Time Thievious Racoonus They could do The Snow Queen as long as it's loosely adapted. After all Frozen wasn't the first take on it.
@supermoff is playing Grand Theft Karabraxos... @DaftDalek is Ceter Papaldi Also in The Enemy of the World, The War Games and had a bigger role in The Curse of Peladon.
@Switcharoo.....says 'Yes'. Love the sexy husky voice woman "For audio navigation press enter now" - Always makes me want to.

Taking the writing and acting aside, doesn't the design of the episode just look so appealing? It reminds of one of these modern video games.

@Creepy_Ghoul I'm listening. So what's your choice?
3 days, 8 hours ago on Face-Off: Blink vs Listen
@Master Michael Moon Or Blink vs The Twin Dilemma. That would go right to the wire. Or maybe The Caves of Androzani vs Fear Her.
@SonicTheHedgehogRules I thought The Day of the Doctor being #1 was ridiculous really. I don't doubt its credentials as a good episode but come on.
Having said that, I still trust DWM and DWM only for story polls.
@LGwalchmai95 Doctor Who and the Curse of the Fatal Death, by a mile.
@Timhogan That was the beauty of the episode. For once The Doctor questions his own beliefs highlighting the importance of scientific study. If you come across something contrary to your currant knowledge you must be prepared to rethink your ideas.

@ Notsosmartguy: Time Thievious Racoonus @They're all my favorite Bank Robber They're your potential future kids. That's what makes it harder. You don't even know what they're like yet. Now choose.

Blink. No competition for me. No second thought. I did like Listen though.
@Ivegotkidneys is Breaking in! @Aztecs, Daleks and Cavemen I would like to think that Steven Moffat has the insight to realise that he's already tried the arc thing a hundred times over and that some stories such as Clara's are better in short.
4 days, 6 hours ago on Open Discussion: Is There More to Clara Than We Think?
Can I just ask for more open discussions DWTV? Related to issues of the past, present and future of Who. Having noticed how many people voice their opinion on this site I think it would be very popular.
@Ivegotkidneys is Breaking in! That's why they were companions, I think. They all share certain qualities that make them able to do extraordinary things.
@whovian101 I'm glad she differed from Amy. That's what makes the best companions - not being too similar to what we've seen before. That's why Sarah Jane is adored. She was a different kind of companion, as is Clara.
I think Steven is just exploring new ideas surrounding the continuity of the series and Clara happens to be the companion that's being used as the experiment and in fleshing out her character, Steven Moffat is saying "Why can't we use her character for narrative experiments while also making her a character in her own right?"
I think we'll find who she really is when her character leaves. My hope is that she leaves the TARDIS like Martha and that given an applause (so to speak) but not a standing ovation regardless of how well she did and how much she's liked. I think her character is more dignified than some of the others in the revived series and she isn't likely to cling on desperately like other companions.

Bit late really. I think 7pm is the ideal timeslot for Doctor Who.

I know I certainly plan to have every classic story of Who on DVD, new series boxsets, Big Finish audios and old Target novelisations and thinking about it that way, if more fans do that (I'm certain they do) it'll make a hell of a lot for the BBC. Many fans have merchandise goals.

@Master Michael Moon Wow.
@Mr Pink And damn that Robert Holmes for adding to time lord mythology with his Gallifrey High Council and his regeneration limit. And Bob Bloody Baker and Dave Blinkin Martin for that rubbish with Omega. Don't they know the show's past is sacred?

Right so having the finals for three episodes now, these are the post-revival figures following the first three episodes:
Series 1 - 9.21 million
Series 2 - 8.72 million
Series 3 - 8.12 million
Series 4 - 8.56 million
Series 5 - 8.91 million
Series 6 - 8 million
Series 7 - 8.11 million
Series 8 - 7.91 million
Make of that what you will. I see no significant decline. Bear in mind that there are still 9 episodes to get final figures from even for those who already made their mind up about how much Listen's figures will rise when we get its finals.

@Mr Pink Ratings ebb and flow throughout the series and they don't usually take a straight decline. The chances are that next weeks will be higher.
@Whogasms There's no variety on The X Factor. I don't get why some people MUST see it or catch up on it. Like any studio light entertainment programme, they're not missing out on anything. A person has been voted out like every other week. A person you'll never think about again after this series. No-one boasts encyclopaedic knowledge of a programme like that. There are no continuity points or nods to the past. There are no favourite episodes or viewer polls. It disappears with the wind.
@YaelMoise @Aztecs, Daleks and Cavemen @LordOfTime @LucasW It's genius. Maybe we're who the Doctor talks to even when he knows there's no-one there. Listen!

@ Notsosmartguy An alright idea but... If the Doctor Who team could get spin-off money to put into an Eighth Doctor TV series that would be just great.

@ Notsosmartguy @Aztecs, Daleks and Cavemen Am I the only one who thinks this series has been great throughout? I'm not overwhelmingly positive about Doctor Who, honestly. I thought series 6 was crud and series 7 was average at best and the last 10 rating I gave before series 8 was in series 4. I just think this series has been superb.
Deep Breath 10
Into the Dalek 8
Robot of Sherwood 8

Bit like that character in the eighth doctor story Death in Blackpool.
I don't know what I think of it. I'm too surprised by how different it was. Everything I read about it was almost completely wrong. It was the episode I didn't expect and didn't particularly ask for but still enjoyed very much.
@GabrieleLiuzzi And it doesn't say "Tom Baker's first line on Doctor Who" CRACKED IT. Search through your Randal and Hopkirk and Little Britain boxsets.

@LucasW Or The Doctor and Romana speaking to each other in English? Or The soldiers in The Curse of Fenric speaking to each other in Russian despite the TARDIS being able to translate it?
@LucasW How about this one? The Doctor, The Master and every member of the Galifreyan high council speaking English to each other in The Deadly Assasin despite there being no native English speakers present to kickstart the TARDIS translation circuits?
@supermoff is alone. Listen... @ Notsosmartguy @AztecsDaleksAndCavemen @Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor!
- Matt Smith was his first Doctor as showrunner
- Matt Smith was inspired by watching The Second Doctor, Patrick Troughton
- The Second Doctor had one companion who wore a kilt
- There are three points to a triangle.

@Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! I can only imagine how mad the world would be if Steven Moffat was its ruler.
Ah man, I've loved The Twelfth Doctor so far and if this is going to show off his dark side again I'm going to enjoy it. Peter Capaldi now fits near the top my best Doctors list (at this very early stage).
@12th's Sonic (I'm Listening!) They are a bit expensive but something like The Eighth Doctor Adventures or Dark Eyes is just as good as any of the TV stories.

I went with The Crimson Horror. Liked that episode right from the first viewing. I loved the sinisterness of it and most of all I loved the character of Mrs. Gillyflower. Best villain in quite a while.
The only Mark Gatiss story I dislike is Victory of the Daleks.
