I miss Whoniverse Discussion, despite the fact that I was never allowed on it for some reason. Excellent article though, lovely to see an issue that isn't spoken about much get a feature on this site.

That's what he's there for. ;) Otherwise there's now way kids'd watch it. Because when the Doctor appears and injects his humour and wisdom into the situation, suddenly the monster doesn't seem quite so scary.

Closer, it's from a short story. :)
The TARDIS doesn't RUN on mind power, it runs on energy derived from the Eye of Harmony and/or the rift. The Telepathic Circuits can be used to mentally choose where to go.
No, I'm fairly sure he was referring to the Seventh Doctor when he was talking about that.

Not under Moffat. I couldn't bare the darker side of Tumblr somehow twisting that to be sexist like they did with Missy just because the Moff was the who finally went and gender swapped a Time Lord. When we get a new showrunner and that side of the fandom is finally satisfied, I'd be all up for the change though!
Who says she's gone? Last time I checked, Cyberman weapons don't disintegrate you, and that looked awfully like a well timed teleport. She's come back from more certain fates...

You're welcome :)
I like to think he went flying about the universe until his remains were found in the Maldovar market by the Eleventh Doctor, by his side throughout his time on Trenzalore.
Like we need assurance that the Master isn't dead. He's come back from being trapped in a TARDIS with a T-Rex, being burned alive and being eaten by the TARDIS. Though I do hope this isn't the last we've seen of this incarnation.
Ummm 51 (well, technically 35 if you count the TV movie) years of influential television that draws in audiences from children to people well into their 70s and beyond, with a formula so easily refreshable yet timeless that it can potentially run forever remaining more or less the same, with devoted/obsessed fans all across the world despite its shoestring budget, (etc... etc..) isn't amazing, I eagerly await to hear your definition of amazing. It may not be perfect all the time nor is every episode a master piece, but it's definitely up there with programs such as Star Trek, The Twilight Zone and other shows that have impacted Western culture.

99% Of one shot male Doctor Who villains are more or less the same, in both the classic and new series. Really the only similarity has been how they dress, which the male villains also have in common amongst themselves. I also struggle to see what you mean by "character development." We've had one full episode with Missy, and found out she was the Master in the closing moments. I'm not sure how you expected her to develop in that time, especially considering she is an established character.

Well, the Rani was more of a cold scientist, and Missy's madcap antics were more akin to the post revival Master than the Rani. Not to say I don't see your point.

Not everything revolves around America. Viewers in the UK have to pay the incredibly old fashioned licence fee, something that's been long abolished in its own former colonies such as Australia) which is part of what funds the show aside from merchandising and overseas revenue. It's not like they're getting to see a full 45 minute episode that will never be released publicly outside of this one time only thing. It's only a handful of days before broadcast anyway! I'm not even from the UK and I understand this.

Makes me nostalgic for all the multimedia stuff we got from 2005-2007, all of those flash games and tie-in sites!
I agree, you can hardly measure the quality of an episode based on how many people watched it on its first broadcast, unless of course they're time travellers. Some of the worst episodes of the show have had high figures, sometimes due to hype, sometimes due to luck.
3 months, 1 week ago on Doctor Who Series 8 (2014) UK Ratings Accumulator
A show that just came back from a massive world tour a few months ago, has gotten to the point where everybody knows about it, which one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood has expressed interest in featuring in and is reported in the news internationally in this year a lone isn't as popular as it was? Trust me, people aren't pointlessly justifying the drop due to catch up services, I know dozens of fans who only watch it on Iplayer and literally only three who watch it live, and people with a casual interest who watch episodes that end up widely talk about on these services later, too. These ratings are no different to last year's, the same year in which the anniversary special's cinema release sold out in cinemas across the globe.
Probably because a Time Lord legend trying to break into out universe to feed on time and reality sounds a bit too much like The Three Doctors. Would have loved to see it though, my mental image is sodding horrific.

They have less budget this year due to the 50th, not more. That's why we're short one episode this year and had a split last year, so that they could put more money into the special.

SCP 173 was created before the episode was aired, but the episode was written late 2006/early 2007, so unless Moffat has a time machine, I doubt it. And the Silence is closer to Slenderman than any thing on the Foundation, and Moffat claimed to have no idea who he was back in when he had Twitter.
