@Favonian Squall @Rusty the Dalek So some sort of Valeyard-esque character?

@AztecsDaleksAndCavemen @TheIdleIdol Are you saying that Doctor Who ISN'T crazy? It's easily one of the maddest shows in pop culture right now.

I really didn't like Matt's cameo. Don't get me wrong, I adore the 11th Doctor, infact he is one of my favourites, but it felt like a bit of a cop out on Moffat's part. This was CAPALDI'S episode and having Matt in it not only undermined Peter, but also blurred the lines of the clean break between eras (I know Jenna is part of both, but she almost feels like a different companion this time). Imo, the whole episode focused far too much on Matt Smith and I often felt like Peter Capaldi was being antagonized by the plot.

Could Karen Gillan in TFoP just be a distant ancestor of Amy Pond? That's similar to how they worked it with Freema in AoG, they said they were cousins.

The Moff's not doing himself any favours is he? Why is he bringing this back up again? It just aggravates me that he's seemingly constantly picking into the Whovian culture. If we want to call them that, we will! And IMO, each Doctor is a different character anyway. Sure it's the same person, but they have different personalities, appearances, emotions etc etc. Just lay off it Moffat!

I think that the best arcs are the subtler ones. Examples include the mentions of 'Bad Wolf' and also the bees plotline, but also Moffat's addition of Kovarian appearing everywhere. These little things that eventually lead up to something IN THE NEAR FUTURE (hint hint, Moffat) so we can actually remember them and go "Ohh! That's clever..."

Myself, I've given up with Eleven's whole timeline. Moffat has made the age old mistake of tangling the storylines, which can be super effective for short times, like say one series, but over the course of 3 or 4 years, details are forgotten and everything gets too confusing. For me, Moffat is much better at good episodes than overall arcs. I'm just going with the flow and hoping it becomes clear later on.

Personally, I don't think a movie would work. Doctor Who is a TV show and it works best on TV. I felt that at times even Day got a little too blockbuster for the show and it lost the focus that the small screen delivers. Doctor Who is at it's heart an emotional story which focuses on the characters, oft times this simply can't translate onto the big screen; it loses the details which make Doctor Who great.

Personally, I think Name is the worst finale out of all of them. It felt a bit confused to me: was the GI the villain (in which case he was a poor one) or the Whispermen (stupidly underused and not nearly as scary as the hype said)? And I know that a finale doesn't necessarily need a singular strong villain but I feel like the only thing that fueled this episode was the admittedly great opening sequence. Also the end scene with River has still to this day got me confused. Basically, I hated it and went for Doomsday.

Easiest choice so far for me. The Unicorn and the Wasp is one of my all time favourites. I didn't particularly like it before but on multiple re-watches it's absolutely great. However, this one seems to have everyone split...

Stuck between 1, 2, 4 and 7 for this one. I think I'm going with The Unquiet Dead just because it is the most watchable and enjoyable one from the list (not that the others aren't) Also Eve Myles. Just sayin.

I can see Twelve with more like the 3rd and 4th Doctor's screwdrivers. Something less wacky and more slick and useful. Or perhaps none at all...

Really disliked this series. I'm not counting Day or Time in this series, only Name by the way. Part 1 was miles better than Part 2 and I didn't really like a single episode in the second half. I only like two stories in this series: Asylum and Manhattan. On a whole, the weakest series of the whole NuWho collection. My list from best to worst series goes like this: 1, 4, 2, 6a, 5, 6b, 3, 7a, 7b.

Really hated in when I watched it. However, on re-watch I quite enjoyed it as it was mainly Amy/Rory-centric. However, it easily has one of the worst plot resolutions in the history of the show and that brings it down a lot for me. 5/10.

Perhaps Danny will be more of a Series 2 Mickey type character: funny, chirpy, a real jack the lad. Both his name and his teaser shot seem to point that direction.

@DW_girl  I think there's plenty worse. My top hated are Night Terrors on top, probably this episode next and then both Craig episodes as I can't stand the character.

@BeyondThePolice @DW_girl  A car and the time vortex are two very different things though. It was the same problem as in Closing Time. A good sci-fi show (however wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey) CANNOT use "love" as a plot resolution. Even if this was a kids episode, it's still Doctor Who and it should have a solid plot. (Sorry if I'm coming off harsh by the way.)

Ughh, 1/10 from me. One of the worst on NuWho so far. I'd even say Love and Monsters was better than this. Absolutely hated.

I'm not sure a War Doctor return would be suitable myself. I mean, it would be very good and we always love a multi-doctor story, but we have already seen him regenerate and I feel that kind of puts a lid on him as a singular story character.

This makes me wish it was Eccleston now. It would have really developed Nine's short lived character that is in fact one of my favourites. Unfortunately I think he is one of the only actors who played the Doctor to actually dislike the show so I don't think we'll ever get that chance.

One of my favourite Smith episodes throughout his era. This story is one of the many that prove that two parters generally make for a much better and well rounded story. Although I prefered Blink, this was a fine comeback for the Weeping Angels and I think the characters and their development in this story is exceptional for me.
