Would be a good idea, but from his perspective - look how much hard word you put into running a show like Doctor Who and then how much criticism you receive on the end of it. You also have map out the plan for a whole series of 12/13 episodes encompassing 10-12 or 13 separate stories and all that with the expectation of 50 years worth of fandom and back story.

@TardisBoy I think the internet in general changes a person's enjoyment of a story. If you enjoy it, you enjoy it and sometimes reviews and comments online can feel  like a condescension of your how you appreciate the show as a viewer.

I would say "meh" but every episode with Peter Capaldi in seems to be automatically amazing. He'd spice up Fear Her or Timelash.

Thought the scene where The Doctor went into the Dalek's mind could have been an excuse to use some classic series footage without overtly referencing the past.

Best appearance in years, particularly considering all those cameo appearances. Daleks should never be cameos. Great Dalek story.  I now expect them back in 2016.

@Dalekium @AztecsDaleksAndCavemen @TheOncomingHurricane Well in any case, Moffat may represent them equally in this regard but not fairly. Homosexuality has different needs in terms of representation. Over-representation has no effect on heterosexuality. It does the other way round.

Reply

@Dalekium @AztecsDaleksAndCavemen @TheOncomingHurricane It's not that they are in a relationship that's the issue. It's same issue that was present with Amy and Rory. They keep going on about it. Doctor Who is a science fiction programme about an alien who can travel through time and space, it's not a drama about relationships but Moffat has this extraordinary habit of reminding you of the character's relationships time and time and time again. This is damaging when it's directed at the minority sexuality.

@Dalekium @AztecsDaleksAndCavemen @TheOncomingHurricane What about over-representation then? Surely mentioning your sexuality every 15 mins isn't normal?

@Dalekium @AztecsDaleksAndCavemen @TheOncomingHurricane Well why not give homosexuality the same treatment on TV? If you normalise one you must normalise the other, surely?

@Dalekium @AztecsDaleksAndCavemen @TheOncomingHurricane What's wrong with normalising heterosexuality? That suggests heterosexuality isn't a thing. It is.

@Dalekium @AztecsDaleksAndCavemen @TheOncomingHurricane Not that they'll stop watching TV but that they'll think homosexuality is smaller than it is, like a craze because over-representation isn't normalisation.

@Dalekium @AztecsDaleksAndCavemen @TheOncomingHurricane I know there won't always be but over representation doesn't help convince those in the present day who don't accept it.

@Dalekium @AztecsDaleksAndCavemen @TheOncomingHurricane Well yes but those who accept homosexuality aren't the people that need convincing. Those who don't will always be open to certain kinds of ignorance.

It was gratuitous in my opinion. Homosexuality should be represented but normalised on screen much like heterosexuality is. Steven Moffat made too much of a point of it. It shouldn't be seen as novel if you want to represent it equally.

No way. The Doctor is a good man. That's my answer to the question he'll be asking this series. He's a good man. Doctor Who has always been good deep down. There is more evidence of mercy than disregard.

I know these are only overnight ratings, but I do think the show could do more to accommodate casual viewers. I never thought I'd say this but there needs to be less references to the past.

@TheIdleIdol As soon as I knew Michelle Gomez was cast I was worried. I knew how she was in Green Wing. It only worked in Green Wing because of how overtly crazy the programme was. She seems to be acting in a similar way.

I don't want to use superlatives because the show has got a lot of history and to talk about any part of a story I only saw yesterday in such a way would be weird but it was just so watchable. It was bold and dark.


Also the 80 minute running time was perfect. This is why we need more multi-part stories.

Fantastic. Really good. I was on the edge of my seat for the first time in recent years for Doctor Who. I really felt the same fear as Clara and shed a manly tear when The Doctor was begging Clara to recognise him. Loved it.
