I don't think Rory was a wimp at all.
@XanderH There *is* no Valeyard regeneration. The Doctor NEVER becomes the Valeyard, The Valeyard was an avatar that contained aspects of the darkest parts of the Doctors personality downloaded from the Matrix.
@MrRazza, General Rogue Timelord Identifier @LaraHarris @sontaran17 I know this is going to annoy some, but I felt it was lazy. There was so much that could have been done with the concept, even with the idea of the Doctors hatred.
I mean... the Doctor could have inadvertently created a whole new "evil" to be battled. Gone into a new creature to help it and turned it into a Dalek destroying machine. Created something from his own hatred that he had to fight... find a way to face that side of him.
I also never felt like he was in peril, I didn't get to know or care about any other character than Journey and wasn't bothered in the least when "other" soldier girl sacrificed herself.
And in truth, the hypocrisy of the Doctor, especially now, knowing what drives someone to BE a soldier and fight having fought the same battle himself against the same enemy.. I found that very hard to swallow. As did I find Clara's slapping of the Doctor.
Peter was amazing, the man can act. I've watched Deep Breath 20 times since last week, I LOVED it but I just felt let down with this *story*.

@Beatles12345 @LaraHarris @sontaran17 Yes because that's what's important. Heaven forfend someone who may have a thought that differs from the majority heard.

@sontaran17 @LaraHarris Seems to be. I could be wrong but I think people are enamoured with the idea of being inside a Dalek. It was boring to me, obvious, saw the end coming a MILE off. Was SO disappointed when they didn't make use of so many opportunities to work the connection between "do I have the right" and "Am I a good man?". It just didn't work for me or my hubby at all.
Ok... after taking a breath or two and discussing it with the hubby, we voted 3/10. Not good. Not good at all.
Gotta say that left the hubby and I very nonplussed. I thought at the start as they went through the blue eye that this was going to be a brilliant retro style dalek story. Instead, I struggled to hear parts of the dialogue and watched a distinctly average episode that was a complete waste of a dalek. Utterly forgettable. In fact as the minutes tick past I'm becoming increasingly more annoyed.
Just thought I'd share this...
I am 41 and last night I woke up screaming from a nightmare about the half faced man.

Mmmmmmm..... no. I don't think so. In RoA he made it very clear his views on gods and what people believe.

Cracking article. People need to get over themselves and tgeir bigotries. Seeing gay people kiss won't make you or your kids gay. Being gay does that and the sooner we normalise what IS normal the sooner we will have kids accepting both who they and others are.

@MoserGray Liberal slant and unwelcome allusion to religion? Have you watched any of the previous season and Doctors? Who has *always* been liberal and has always treated religion with offhandedness.

@ Notsosmartguy the dalek of Jersey @LaraHarris Yeah... it's probably a completely bonkers idea lol
@ Notsosmartguy the dalek of Jersey @LaraHarris He did... but she's clearly NUTS. That woman is a psychopath villain if I ever saw one. Could something have happened to Clara to push her over the edge?
It's probably bonkers but it was the fact that she called him "boyfriend" that made me wonder.
@Scootersfood @LaraHarris I've listened so many times now and I just can't get there with it. I *want* to.. I don't want to be cringing my way through the next season lol but it just... bores me. It's lost all it's "ooompf".

Anyone else get the Pertwee/Baker/(Tennant same difference when you watch their seasons back to back *despite Davison being his Doctor)/Troughton Doctors coming through?
That's the vibe I got Anyone else think differently?
Of *course* you did lol SHARE!
@Scootersfood I'm afraid I'm one of those who don't like either. I think the credits are too Disney and the Theme is bland. Still... they'll change.. they always do, much like Doctors lol
I wonder if Missy could be Clara? It was just a random thought I had...
@TheGreatCompanion I *think* your radar may be off... she's a psycho villian if there ever was one. At least, that's the vibes *I* got.

He was regenerating THAT'S why he couldn't remember. He was addled.
As the chap below just said about the theme. It lacks balls. It's very "meh" I feel. Wasn't too keen on the themes during Matts tenure but I preferred them to this.
Regarding the titles I hate all the clocks. To my mind its very obvious and a bit Disney.
This may well make me a grumpy old woman but I don't care lol
Do NOT like the new credits or theme. Sorry.
Everything else was brilliant. Just... brilliant. Very clever with the whole "from the fans perspective" thing they did and the little subtle guilt trip that it layed on you. Brilliantly directed, great script, loving Capaldi...
Happy bunny me.
For some reason ( I don't know what) when I read "In the Forest of the Night" it made me think of the Gamma Forests. *shrugs* random connections... lol

It's probably no different from previous years he's just decided to take credit this year or the rules have changed and he HAS to take credit. Most scripts have rewrites by the head writer.

I'm not sure why think that either the beeb or Jenna would have said anything? I'm not saying the report is accurate (although personally I think there is truth in it) but keeping things like that under wraps is important. Not that they havent been leaking like a broken bucket recently!
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Jenna Coleman Leaving at Christmas?
If they were asked directly "Is she leaving" they can't say "No" if she is. All they can do is decline to comment. If she wasn't leaving they would say so.
I meant to say earlier... the fact that the BBC have declined to comment in some way comfirms her departure. RTD made it clear on more than one occasion in his book that the beeb operate a "no lie" policy to the press regarding these sorts of things.
Now, before folks get all conspiracy and bleating about lies the news may or may not tell, this relates specifically to the entertainment department and staffing. Had Jenna not been leaving they would have said "No... Jenna is staying on" the fact that they have chosen to stay silent in itself speaks volumes.
I believe Jenna is on her way out.
"By the time she leaves she will be one of the longest-standing companions ever" I don't follow how that is that case unless they are meaning "in universe" and are classing her as a companion even when she wasn't actually *with* the Doctor.

Re S.T as a writer...
I agree and it's weird... because his writing on Sherlock is excellent.

@Polyphase Have to admit l liked the stompy "delete" version. It reminded me of being a kid and that feeling of relentlessness that they had. I agree about the next redesign however. I *hated* it and when a wooden cyberman appeared in Time I felt physically sick.

@Blink42 @Ivegotnewkidneys on the 23rd I don't think that's an issue, it's not like they didn't have to screen for it. Had David or Peter been awful in their auditions they would have gone to plan B.
Anyone else think the average Doctor looks like Peter Capaldi with *really* bad hair?
I think that would be interesting. He has already in books I think and the 6th Doctor met HG Wells.
Can't delete my post above. Oops.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Moffat Would Do ‘Wholock’
My attitude? That I think it's a dull concept? That's not me with an attitude that's you thinking you have the right to decide the sort of person I am based on whether I find something interesting or not. Tell me, if a friend of yours watches a movie you like and decides it was rubbish is that them having an attitude? No its not. If I like an episode of Who you thought was terrible is that you having an attitude? No. It's not. The Doctor and Sherlock are in many ways the same sort of character there's not a lot you can do with that. The expectation would be that there would be a battle over who was smarter. The fact we can ascertain that before it even happens renders doing it (in MY opinion) pointless.
Let. It. Go. I'm not interested in your language education.
