Oh snap. I was beat to it.

You're "feline" you're not fooling anybody :P
You know, whenever this discussion starts, people say they would like for the desicion to be made because of the acting, for it not to be a sex equality statement. But there's always comments about how the sex of the viewer would affect their opinion of this change. My point is, there's no point in wishing it won't happen. When the show decides to do this it will be viewed as a statement, regardless of the wishes of the then showrunner or the bbc.
I use safari and never have any problems and it even let's me paragraph (is that how you say that?).

I'm female, and you can see my opinion just above.
Isn't there a "I would be ok with it" option? Because I don't actively want it, I would prefer the Doctor stay always a British male, but I would also not actively rant about it if it were to happen. Especially if she were an British female.
Well, it's 71% for Clara staying... don't shout at me! XD

I didn't get "dangerous" from any of them. And even if it was dangerous physically, which again I never felt, it was not dangerous emotionally. Not in a way I'd call 'real'. Rory was the closest it got, imo.

Before everyone took to the pregnancy theory, I just assumed the three months were the amount of time she had been lying to him.

@TheOncomingHurricane In your mind, does he jump or is he pushed?

@Moffat'sLittleHelper Can't wait for Chrsitmas!!! : The what?
1 week, 5 days ago on Steven Moffat: An Era of Forgotten Things
@DanielBiela I have three possible explanations for this:
1- Capaldi was the one where the calculations finished.
2- Capaldi wanted to go back himself for some reason pertaining to his search for Gallifrey. On top of that, if Gallifrey is discovered during his tenure then future Doctors had no need to go back.
3- The Moment could only allow 13 Doctors to go, be it because of power or etc.
@Hibernus @ilyootha, agent of C.L.A.R.A. It's the fact that the TARDIS interior is the same as Matt's and that the monument TARDIS has a broken window, I'd say. They suggested Matt was the last one.
Oh a peck, ok. *breathes again*

I was surprised to find that pychofantic is actually a word. There's no need to be rude. I was looking for something in TV/movies before I found Moffat and he is the perfect writer for me, for what I want in stories told to me. And on the other hand, he has the qualities I search for in my own work, that of cleverness and fast narrative problem solving. You may have you're opinion, I have mine. Respect that.
2 weeks ago on Moffat Says He’s Not Running Out of Ideas Yet
@conallmc2013 @Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY I'm not saying he didn't do good things, the Time War was a brilliant idea. I'm saying he didn't try too hard. In the sense that he didn't challenge himself. Like Beasts_a_Snarling put it: he didn't step out of his comfort zone.
@conallmc2013 @Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY The Key to Time and Trial of the Timelord would like to have a word with you.
@Doctor hates tigers @Notsosmartguy Agent of C.H.R.I.S.T.M.A.S. My favourite is series 7 which seems to be an unpopul-er opinion.
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY The Power of Three is the worst usage of the sonic.... ever.
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY LOL XD
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY I think Moffat is a much better showrunner. At least he tries new stuff and, in my eyes, delivers. RTD was boring in that sense. I can't really judge him fairly though. When I started DW his run was already done.
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY Ah yes, well I agree with you there. I just didn't think you were talking about that one. It is great.
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY I want to but for some reason I want to read A Midsummer Night's Dream first and I just can't get around to it! (I haven't lived long enought to read everything I want to, I'll get around to it).
(And sorry about the off-topicness DWTV but you can't really complain if your site spawns talks about Shakespeare XD)
@Reeze, agent of C.L.A.R.A. I'm not either. I mean he was... ok. But I have too many problems with his work and find non of it exceptional. (except Waters Of Mars, if you can count that. Oh, and Midnight... well, scratch that).
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY With your description of it, you've made me remember that I still haven't got around to reading the Tempest yet X(
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY "that scen with the kid" is the one in Listen yeah? Cause I didn't come up with any from Dark Water (except the one where Danny attempts to talk to the boy which I didn't find particularly amazing).
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY If I remember correctly, it was used very little this series.
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY Ok. Careful of your wording then. That "like" in the phrase makes it sound at least patronizing to me.
I've never seen the decrease in quality everyone else seems to point out. I've found AGMGTW, DOTD, NOTD, Listen, Deep Breath, Dark Water and the series 6 starter to be incredible and on par with his previous work. But, like everything concerning favourites, it's a matter of opinion. I like him a lot because I favour clever writing and surprising twists. It's very rare for me to be surprised about plot developments. Really, I'm a pain to watch a movie with. He was everything I was looking for after RTD and has consistently delivered. TWORS is what got me into DW after all.
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY If he was, would that be a problem? It seems like a very antagonizing question.
I certainly have never thought about it. I guess like supermoff he would be my favourite TV writer, as Doctor Who is the only show where I identify them at all. As to writer overall it would be impossible for me to make a list, though he would most likely be in the top 20%.
@supermoff of C.L.A.R.A. can't wait for Christmas! @Angie Whodini has Ravio's bracelet @Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY I wish I had his talent and as he says here, his ability to solve narrative problems fast. I can be weeks stuck on the same problem. It must be the results of him being a TV writer I guess, I have the commodity of time.
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY I disagree, but I've already written about series 7 Clara so much I've grown tired of it. Yes, she had her problems (nightmare in silver has nothing to do with the other episodes, but the others are consistent). Yes, she is incredibly different post-NotD. But I cannot fathom how you see her in any way as similar to River. Other characters (Tasha Lem) yes. Clara, no. The problem is the labelling "River clones" Moffat-era female caracter tend to be feisty. that does not make them similar to River.
@supermoff of C.L.A.R.A. can't wait for Christmas! @Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY no* grrr
@supermoff of C.L.A.R.A. can't wait for Christmas! @Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY I would also label him a genius. What he does is utterly mind blowing to me; I know how difficult it is to create such engaging and clever stories while still having engaging and clever characters and delivering pace and twist and... Genius, on other word for it to me.
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY River? I can see River blowing up the sun with a sonic bomb. I do not see her getting emotional over giving up her leaf and giving a speech. Or are you saying that "getting emotional" is a sign of a River clone as well?
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY I think you've been staring too much at what you can't have. I would also like to have 2 seasons of Doctor Who per year, but I see there are limitations to that. As you can see, the amount of new writers has been mostly consistent, and it has worked well. We can get excited about new writers and what they will bring, Moffat fans can get excited about his episodes, Gatiss fans can get excited about his episodes and so on.
And who's to say Moffat doesn't have disagreements with veteran writers and that he does with new writers. That generalizing a bit.
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY River does not show fear. River doesn't hesitate. River doesn't listen to the Doctor. I can't see River getting all emotional about loosing a leaf. Nop.
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY There ARE people to disagree with. See, you're not getting my point. No new writers is bad. All new writers is bad. Moffat and RTD had a good balance. And really if Moffat is in charge of the show he should be in charge of the direction, period. Having arguments with his writers is not productive, but new blood is good for the show. So 2-3 writers are ok.
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY Normal shows do not change writers regularly. If Moffat brought back no one in his seasons he would have much less control over the quality of the season and/or would have to work a lot more. It's common sense to bring back people you can trust and that you know how they react to your ideas and/or you having a say on their scripts and what they have to change. I'm sorry, but I strongly disagree with you on the necessity of his actions.
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY RTD brought an average of 3,33 completely new writers per series. Moffat has brought an average of 2,25 new writers per series.
Writers who were not used the previous season: RTD, 3,66. Moffat, 3,66. So, I'm sorry to say, numbers don't agree with you.
@supermoff of C.L.A.R.A. can't wait for Christmas! I was going to say the same. :D
@Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY Narrative problems aren't really restricted to answers the writer purposely poses to the audience. I say that from a writers perspective.
And, I would add, a considerable time has passed..

I saw both this year, too, but unlike you I still prefered Delgado. I suspect though it's mostly because I did not enjoy Ainley and, expecting something similar, I was very pleasantly surprised. I still liked Gomez very much and for now like her more than Simm.
WAS the TARDIS disliking her answered? I think Moffat said he would explore that but it wasn't even mentioned at all.

Good catch. So it's not that she's forgotten, only that she thought it was a dream.
