I doubt it's the character that's changing, why did everybody interpret it like that? I took it to mean more like the tone of the show or even only how the show interprets the situations or how much it forces the twelve Doctor into situations that exasperate him etc...

@Doctavarium I think it will be more like a tsukkomi type of comedy. Like he is the serious man in ridiculous situations and is exasperated etc. That type of thing, I think.

@DaftDalek is the Aphex Twin Doctor @Notsosmartguy @Switcharoo I liked it for you. Now... how do I like it for myself? Hmmmm.....

Okay, this is the time to do it right. I've considered average as the average DW episode in my mind. And no, that's not an excellent episode, It's considering that many episodes are actually not that good. considering that, I gave a seven, two fives and two fours.
Although, I consider I should've given The Unquiet Dead an 8. I actually quite liked that one

Mmm... See, Cassandra was in Rose first. The change shouldn't be a welcome one. And as TheOncomingHurricane said, she isn't happy about the body, or rather, she shows specific happiness about the... parts.

I hope this is not taken offesibly, btw. My mo in any conversation where the other party is likely to know more than me is to not take anything for granted and ask.
I did not. I did not ask as a joke, maybe he wasn't anymore, what do I know?
I agree with this. It's not that the Master always wanted to be female it's just that when he became one she was okay with it. Didn't particularly react to it as far as I can remember. I hope we get that regeneration scene, it could be very interesting.
I highly doubt you would react with that sort of aloofness if you wrote an article and people spat on your face about the ridiculous opinion you have and omg what a disastrous article you have absolutely no writing talent. In my opinion disrespectfulness should absolutely be frowned upon, regardless of wether it did or didn't happen in this case. Unchecked opinions are not the reason I regularly come here and I think people here work hard for discussions to be civil and respectful.
You missed this bit, I think.
"A trans woman who has gone through the effort of transitioning is extremely unlikely to react positively to being in a man’s body, indeed, for a lot of us it’s our worst fear."
To clarify, I don't think it's fair to judge an author on his writing, mainly because as a writer myself my characters rarely express my opinions. But in sensitive topics like this I don't think your comparison stands for the reasons stated above. Peace.
The difference I think is that in this case that the way the character is supposed to talk while in the Jack case it comes out less about what the character thinks (many say it sounds OOC) and more about the author.
To be fair to TW the pronoun problem is hard to grasp if one is not used to it. I still find it hard with Missy especially when refering to her previous selves.
I don't understand, why would you set out to be offended by this article?
It certainly doesn't help, no.
Oh ok. Great then :).
I wondered about this, too.
Very interesting read. I am generally very open minded, but not having met anyone who was transgendered (that I'm aware of) in my life I have to admit I have little to no idea what the appropiate attitudes and such are when facing someone who is. So this was very educational, too. I'm glad Moffat has been good with the subject seeing as he still is the showrunner and can continue to do good with the character of Missy and others. I do get very annoyed when people, for example say something like it is a life choice, as I know it's proven to be genetic. Or people express concern about how a child of a gay couple might turn out. So I'm glad my favourite show can help with the awareness and acceptance of different people.
I'm curious how you percieved the reaction of the Doctor to Missy. I didn't notice him reacting any different but then again I'm very bad at percieving problems with those kinds of things.
Let the nuuUuuUuumbers speak to me!

@ilyootha got into yet another fandom Series 7 was my favourite one until series 8 came along...
@Bow Ties Are Cool I reeeeeeally don't like the Forest one (don't even remember the name), so much so that it was a chore to rewatch it with my sister. It was just really really bland... But besides that I agree!
@Clara Laurinda I voted for series 8 because I thought that as a series it felt the most coherent, it executed it's themes brilliantly (if not the arc so much, but only series 5 did it near perfectly), gave us bold choices with the Doctor that worked (and although he didn't have so much screen time, I find that the Clara plot was so interesting and developed (that's mo, anyway) that I could take it (and he still had brilliant scenes)) and overall left me very satisfied with the quality of the episodes separately. I have so many episodes that I regard as excellent. I am very satisfied with this series, really. Hope it helps and doesn't confuse you further (also, I may have exaggerated with the parenthesis there a tiny bit...)
Deep Breath's one for me.

@The Cosmic Dodo This is off the top of my head, but the prison cell bickering immediately comes to mind as one of the best comedy scenes of the season. My favourite is probably the restaurant scene in Deep Breath. honourable mentions go to the Santa-tific explanation (pole and magic carrots) in Last Christmas and the "I hate him" scene in Time Heist for Capaldi greatness.
I have a feeling 80% of the vote will be for either Moffat or Mathieson.
I see him like a sort of Moffat-to-be. Such high hopes.
@MrRazza has drezzzed for the occasion Lol at the last one. Really the fact that they used such a terrible plot device twice this season... *siiigh*
@Supermoff Damn, you're making me doubt my decision. You're right, this was a terrific year for Moffat. The only episode I didn't adore was Death in Heaven. But then I loved both of Mathieson episodes and his sheer imagination. I'm really glad I didn't think too much about this poll, otherwise I would never have voted.
@TardisBoy! Wow you just expressed my thoughts exactly. Though it was easier for me to reach the final conclusion.
Mathieson. This was the first that was easy for me and I think it's the first time in some time it's not Moffat who gets my vote (thought he was close, I think Mathieson deserved it more)
I went with Deep Breath because the dinosaur and the half-face man were simply too good to me. Flatline is the other I would've voted for, but many episodes had good visual effects.

So many... so many good ones. Such creative monsters this season. Went with... the Teller. It edged as first because of the design and execution. It's one of the more real monsters I've ever seen in DW.

Honestly the last two were used really creatively, so it was mostly 50-50 for me. Went for the Daleks.

@Adric the Genius I think I may have watched that scene at least 7 times when I watched Caves of Androzani. I just kept going back and back and laughing or just being engrossed by how marvellous it is. And Davison if the "not a very persuasive argument" moment completely sells the scene to me.

Exactly like mine!
I don't think she has to be a constant changing machine... I mean, this is Doctor Who, of course.... But I don't think a season of just travelling would be boring in any way. Not that it's Moffat's style anyway.
On the other hand, once a character has been established, they don't need to be the focus to develop, youcan start incorporating developments into the little things, the audience can join the dots just with that.
My theory is she won't get much development and a thing will happen (currently it's companion-shaped thing).
