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 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.

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.

@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...)

@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.

@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.

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.

@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.

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).

I don't get how you're reasoning is that because things were one way they will stay the same. Actually, I think the opposite is more reasonable. The universe leans towards balance. See below for the longer comment.

I would love Capaldi to get more focus so I was just telling you what I hope. Look, in series 7 everybody complained Clara was like cardboard and in series 8, among other things, it seemed Moffat listened and gave us a companion with lots of development (and, even if it took focus away from the Doctor, I love that much development story-wise). Maybe he'll listen now and focus on the Doctor. The difference now with before series 7 is that Clara is a well-developed character now, and she has a history and we know her. Before series 7 she just needed the development, it was necessary. Now she doesn't. On the other hand, little was done with the Doctor this series (actually he had a nice journey, but it was far from the scale of Clara's. I mean, the whole Am I A Good Man? was pretty interesting.) so there's room there for things to happen. I am of the group (if it exists) that thinks there will be a new companion somewhere next series. But if we don't get one, I think objectively there's a much higher chance of the Doctor getting the attention than Clara.

@allons_ywibblywobbly I'll give you another one. Since Clara is staying, it means the series has a chance to focus on Capaldi or share focus as it won't have to worry about developing a new companion.
