@BollingerKnickers They should make a story on déjà vu, that would be brilliant if done properly.

Flatline, no doubt. Mummy had its very interesting moments, but there's something Flatline does that is brilliant to me: Clara finally discovers that you can't be the Doctor and be always sincere, loving, caring etc. When there's hundreds, thousands or even millions of possible victims, you don't have to cry. The Doctor stated that in Mummy, but it was only in Flatline that Clara walked in Capaldi's shoes and discovered that he was right after all. Also, the Boneless were a wonderful monster, I watched this episode 2 in 2 hours and that's the first time it happens to me on an episode that isn't a series opener!

@Moffat'sLittleHelper - is surrounded by trees! I hope not, being a showrunner sometimes is a terrible burden that might ruin creativity. Mathieson needs to be a 3-episode-per-season writer or at maximum a co-showrunner.

@HowieFisher Series 8 is on the opposite pole to Series 6. It is difficult to me to find an episode I hate, and at the same time it's different to decide an episode I love the most because, hey, I love Deep Breath, Listen, The Caretaker, Kill The Moon and Flatline about 100% and appreciate the rest of the Series. And that's something new, didn't feel like that since Series 4 and I can say this is even better. Twelve has become my New Series favourite Doctor in a bunch of episodes and the stories are really well done. I'm finally starting to hype for the finale now... but it's so said the Series is running so fast!

@Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! Maybe that's just to underline how she's obsessed with the Doctor to the point of being his new nemesis. Maybe she adapts to the new incarnations in the same way that the Master changed every now and then to the different Doctors (John Simm's incarnation even did that on purpose!). And no, I'm not suggesting Missy is the Master.

@Antee991166 @supermoff is now in 2D! @Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! I solved the matter in a completely different way: the void/black experience is due to the brain being technically off - that's what the biological side of man remembers, i.e. a full blackout. The presences in the dark are, on the contrary, a remnant of the disembodied experience of the dead person. You can't "see" as a soul but you can "sense" things, so that Harper saw nothing but sensed some kind of presence.

@Andrew_Swallow I think she's trying to do of Clara what Seven was trying to do of Ace, I mean the whole "Ace as Time Lady student" thing that was never completed on screen. Clara is being trained, yes, and for a higher purpose.

@Deus_Ex_Machina There's a much bigger mistake, but I realized only now. What about the TARDIS? Isn't she worthy to be considered a companion?

@Deus_Ex_Machina Very difficult indeed. The 8th Doctor has such a complicated timeline it's very difficult to fit it into a single chronology. We can just do our best efforts but it'll always be an attempt.

Reply

@ilyootha @AlessandroArsuffi @Deus_Ex_Machina More than the outfit, the problem is the absence of Tamsin, Molly, Susan and Alex in his list of former companions, but he mentions every single companion from the EDAs, DWM and BF continuities. It would be rather strange to call all of the past companions but the most recent... Anyway, the Time War was already running but just never called by that name. To The Death/Lucie Miller already has the taste of a Time War context. Also, Mary's story was published right between The Girl Who Never Was and An Earthly Child, which may mean nothing, but implies that the authors couldn't have any knowledge of the next companions. I am open to other solutions and I would like to know them, especially from you who are a Master of Continuity when it comes to the many timelines involved in the different media!

@ilyootha @Deus_Ex_Machina The Eighth Doctor's chronology is a mess, but I agree with you. I set Izzy right after The Gallifrey Chronicles, presuming most of those events have been rewritten with the restoration of Gallifrey and I believe that Destrii could be safely placed right before the events in Mary's Story from the POV of the older Doctor (and this story should be placed right before Situation Vacant, because the older Doctor is still in his Victorian dress and doesn't know anything about Tamsin and Molly).

@MaraBackman @waterfallbooks The official BBC webside doctorwho.tv includes River Song in an official list of companions. From that list: Liz Shaw is present despite not being a travelling companion; Adam Mitchell is absent despite travelling once with the Doctor; Grace Holloway is present despite her single appearance in the show; Christina De Souza and Astrid Peth are absent despite they had one single episode like Grace. It's difficult to say which characters can be called companions. I think there might be one-off companions, regular companions and recurring companions whose characteristics are well-defined, and the word companion means "all of the three groups put together".

@sontaran17 The real question is: if Eleven received a phone call to stop this events, and as DWTV said, this will be addressed; who did phone the Doctor? Is it possible that it was Clara who phoned him at the wrong point in time and space? Just some food for thought. In that case, the Doctor may be on the train just because Clara is involved first...

I don't agree with most of your review. I mean that some of the inexplicable parts of the episode may be left to imagination. For example, the Doctor explained that the spiders were bacteria, but in a universe with living stars (42) and planets (Rings of Akhaten) we may have to accept that some exotic life form may develop sometimes. I don't bother about this one. As for the Moon Entity, or whatever you like to call it, we know that babies grow in their mother's womb, acquiring matter over time. We don't know what the Moon actually consumed. Certainly there were the metals on the surface of the egg, but even humans don't feed at vegetables or meat alone. For example, the Moon may have converted energy from outer space into matter, thus increasing its mass over time in a way that we don't simply know, explaining also the instantaneous creation of a new Moon.  As for the nations voting: in 2049, even Tumblr is in the past. We may suppose that all nations on the planet asked the population to vote on some governmental website within 30 minutes, so that every nation could decide by poll. The fastest democracy ever in the palm of your hands.

@who251 The_Eternal_Dalek is right the companion-centric approach has always been the general approach of the show. Let's just mention that the first episode in the Classic Series was called "An Unearthly Child" in reference to Susan, the Doctor's granddaughter and first companion, and that the first episode of the 2005 revival is called "Rose", not "The Doctor". Would I need to describe Doctor Who in a few words, I would say that it's "Doctor Who narrates how humans are influenced when an alien adventurer with a time machine bumps into their lives to show them the universe and fight monsters".

@Polyphase The only episode I haven't rewatched this series is Robot of Sherwood because I didn't really like it. Honestly, every Doctor Who episode grows on me view after view, except for Love and Monsters (never managed to watch it a second time), The Idiot's Lantern (hated it on second view even more than my first view) and a few episodes from Series 6.

@TardisDad @Burgess Shale He was ready to admit young Amy on his TARDIS in The Eleventh Hour one regeneration ago, and at least one companion, Susan Foreman, who had a Time Lord age comparable and compatible to Courtney.  I don't see how the story has been sacrificed, honestly.

@Skavox Blitzer Artron energy is the background radiation of the time vortex, which means somebody is using time travel. Which means one of three possibilities: (1) Skavox Blitzer recognizes that the Doctor and/or Clara are time travellers, (2) The Doctor detects time travel signatures on the Skavox Blitzer, which means he is a time traveller (3) The Doctor detects artron energy when the Skavox Blitzer is teleported to the Nethersphere, since from what we can see in the hints there might be a return of the story arc and/or Missy in this episode.

@whovian213 is suspicious of the new caretaker I rarely accept other people reviews and I think this one is influenced mainly by the Doctor's attitude towards Danny. Well, I can see why they hate that idea, but probably I would've done the same myself. I'd be rude with a soldier because I hate war under any circumstances. Maybe I'd repent and ask for forgiveness some hours later, but I may suffer a burst of uncontrolled rage as a first reaction. So, don't worry and just watch it, then we'll see what happens...

@The Outer Space K9 You perfectly know that the War Doctor himself was hated and rejected by his predecessors. In a very difficult way to understand for us humans, it's still the Doctor, but he's a new Doctor. Every incarnation treats the others as separate beings on occasion and take the distance from their actions. Eleven criticized Ten's "vanity issues" and the Warrior for doing what he did "not in the name of the Doctor". He accepted him as a part of his past, but now as a Doctor.

3 weeks, 4 days ago on The Caretaker Advance Review

@DWTV Yes, I believe he is entitled to prejudice. The First Doctor was filled with prejudice against humans (the Ninth Doctor sometimes showed the same attitude). Ten was disgusted by the very fact that Martha was part of UNIT or by Captain Jack's involvement in Torchwood. There's enough precedent for that.

3 weeks, 4 days ago on The Caretaker Advance Review

@ClaireAbraham @VictorWong1 @LiamTheFizz That doesn't mean he loves soldiers. Look at the Doctor's reaction in The Sontaran's Stratagem. Look at the many occasions the Doctor tried to change the Brigadier and ultimately it was the Brig who changed ("Science leads") and not the Doctor. Every incarnation to his own - if you ask me, I think he hates soldiers because he knows the Oncoming Storm is still abiding his mind in some form. He fears himself, that's all.
