@Browncoat of arms Afaik there's still no contradiction with the New Series. The new Master's origins and the Time War subtext from Dark Eyes 2 even seem to be written to match the criteria of canonicity into BF. Also, as DrWho879992 and Ante991166 already wrote, Molly is now an official companion like the rest of the Eighth Doctor's BF companions, so I take BF to be canon in almost its entirety.

@DawnTime With a good offer and, who knows, maybe a Classic Doctor returning, he may accept. He contributed to novels for New Who, why not a single episode?

People know that I'm not a fan of former showrunners returning as writers under their immediate successor. RTD is not my choice unless it happens after Capaldi and Moffat leave the show, so that the nostalgia of the past may be worthy a try. From the list mentioned above, I'd like the return of Terrance Dicks and Marc Platt from the Classic Series, Mat Jones from the New Series and DEFINITELY the debut of Nicholas Briggs as writer on TV (in truth, I'd like him as the next showrunner).

@DrainOfMorbius Also, I hope RTD doesn't return any soon. I think he would ruin Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor. If he must return, I hope he does with a more Tennant-like Doctor so that he can play his cards better.

@DrainOfMorbius That's the reason why many hated the Eleventh Doctor's era - too much story arc. Honestly, I loved his era but I think it's refreshing to have a minimalistic story arc for another year. I want variation of genre for a while, than we can have a story-arc-heavy season to end Capaldi's time as the Doctor. I think Series 5 and 8 were the most well-balanced seasons of New Who in that respect and many fans who suffered for the Silence arc have finally been satisfied this year.

My first Doctor was David Tennant. My first episode was "The Satan Pit". I was immediately hooked on the show. Anyway, my favourite incarnation is a completely different matter and I rather prefer Smith, McGann and Capaldi for the New Series, McCoy and Colin Baker for the Classic.

@DocWhoFan "Have an whosome day" would've been more appropriate! Anyway, my thought is especially for the departed. The first three Doctors have set the basics for what the show would've been over the next decades. It is a great honour and burden for the later Doctors to carry on the show and I must say they did it brilliantly.

@TheDaleksDaughter His evolution is already running. For the very first time, he showed Clara that he cared for her and that's something the newly regenerated Twelve wouldn't have done. I can compare that to the First Doctor departing from Susan or from Ian and Barbara. Pretending to be OK and, in reality, showing a hidden sweet side of his personality.

@LiamTheFizz That's what was frustrating with their darkest moments. They became temporarily unlikely. I hated Ten in his vengeful mode in The Runaway Bride and The Waters of Mars because he suddenly appeared like a bomb of pure evil ready to explode. I prefer to be pleasantly surprised by the few good moments the Twelfth Doctor has openly shown (such as in Dark Water) than to be deluded by what the 10th and 11th happened to behave when vengeful and wrathful (and I still love both of them, anyway).

@Ottoman14 Well, the War Doctor explained well why 10 and 11 seemed to be somewhat out-of-character with their predecessors. They were conceiling their past. They were pretending to be somebody else. Pretending to themselves, of course, that they could be a better person than, say, the Ninth Doctor. They were trying to be young and childish to hide how they were ashamed for what they believed they had done on Gallifrey. The knowledge that Gallifrey stands is probably what activated the Now-I-Can-Truly-Be-Myself-Again mode this Doctor has shown. Still, I'm sure he will mild down a bit over the next 2 years and, when he regenerates, he will make the transition towards a more balanced incarnation. At this time, he's fresh air and a necessary break that makes perfectly sense in the personal evolution of the character after The Day of the Doctor and, to be honest, I love that. Go on, Capaldi!

That's why so many people grew fond of your incarnation, Pete! Many fans thought it was time for a change and have a grumpy Doctor once again. Every good moment given by this incarnation to the audience was increased by the stark contrast with the overall unlikeable behaviour of this incarnation.

@Mistress Oodkind will return... My sonic would be identical to the current but with a red tip and brass replaced by silver, as if the colour shade to returned to classic mode. As for the console room, roundels on the walls and an up-and-down moving time rotor (maybe red-coloured as in the 1980s) would be perfect. The rest may stay as it is, I love the new desktop theme.

@The12thWhoodie On this I feel I completely disagree. Paul McGann is a huge actor. He managed to shine in the 1996 movie despite its incredible limits. He is perfect in the audio books and his interpretation in "The Night of the Doctor" was more than brilliant, even surpassing Tennant's or Smith's by a mile. He only needed a better script in the 1996 movie and we would've had an ongoing series with Paul. He is a marvelous actor, on the same level as Peter.

@91 Queen of Evil My suggestion for a McGann return is  a little different: Twelve regenerates and his successor begins to behave erratically in a very Colin-B Baker-ish style, so he asks the TARDIS to look for somebody who might help him. Meanwhile, on a distant planet, a family is running away from the Daleks and McGann's Doctor stops the pepperpots to let the alien family escape: the Daleks menace the Doctor of death, but rather then firing he drops his wooden-handled screwdriver and accepts death, but the Thirteenth Doctor's TARDIS materializes around him. Now it's up to the Eighth Doctor to assist his future self and establish him as the "good man" he always promised to be, before and old enemy (the Master/Missy) manages to convert the Thirteenth Doctor to the dark side in his weakest day...

@Regenerated Catterson hails CyberBrig @The Finn Audios sometimes are better: you can do whatever you like without CGI and great costs, just using good voice actors, brilliant dialogues, a wonderful plot and a couple sound effects.

Happy birthday, Doctor! The best incarnation on audio together with Colin, you are my favourite Classic Doctor and one of my favourite incarnations from the whole Series. Great man, brilliant actor, huge fan and supporter of Doctor Who... I was so happy one year ago when you returned to the screen with The Night of the Doctor... 7 minutes of pure excitement and actually my favourite moment in Whostory together with the 13-Doctors scene in The Day of the Doctor. What can I say? THANK YOU DOCTOR!

@MikeGordon1 I'm a very different kind of Whovian. Since I consider Doctor Who as if it were a real alternate reality, I don't even bother to judge the characters, plots etc. That makes me look at the show from a different perspective: I accept everything, I like it or not. Death in Heaven wasn't a marvelous episode and to me partially ruined the positive series, nevertheless I can find many good things with it. I didn't explode in hatred for the first female Master, for the Brig being cyberconverted or for the cremation thing. Can this happen? Yes. Why bother then? I just accept these things as facts in that universe, at maximum I can try and fit the things together with my imagination, and that's all. I love this show and everything that comes out of it, even when its execution may be imperfect. Up to now, Love&Monsters is the only New Series episode I really hate and Death in Heaven was a definite 7/10 for me.

The ranking of Doctors is very difficult. I'm re-building my list every now and then as I watch more episodes from the Classic Series, so here's my current list: (1) Capaldi (2) Smith (3)McGann (4) Tennant (5) Colin Baker (6) Troughton (7) McCoy (8) Pertwee (9) Davison (10) Hartnell (11) Tom Baker (12) Eccleston. If Hurt called himself "the Doctor", I would've put him between Colin Baker and Troughton.

@Oliver J. "cool" They didn't keep changing his hair style. He probably changed his hairstyle once or twice, but the episodes were filmed in a different order than broadcasting. Anyway, except for the sudden change in hairstyle during Flatline that has no apparent justification, we must acknowledge that the Doctor spent weeks from one adventure with Clara and another.

@BeyondThePolice @SonicTheHedgehogRules Well, they didn't remember who was who. Now that one Osgood is dead, the other will know if it's human or Zygon. If the dead Osgood was human, the other one will return to Zygon form; if she was a Zygon, the real Osgood will just remain the same and know she's human.

@Padaster Yes, I know what you mean. She was a character we had been invested into, unlike the many other characters that just happened to be killed by the Doctor (such as Torchwood agent who pretended to be a journalist). And she did that with a sadistic approach that shows how mad she is.

@Amy is uniting the Earth Kingdom! Well, possibly that's part of the energy waste that is released by bodies upon regeneration. Matt released a lot of it when he regenerated from Tennant, while Capaldi didn't (maybe he acquired matter from the outside?) because he's taller. As for the energy released by Tennant after he regenerated from Eccleston... I presume it came from the nose and ears XD
