@The Finn, Agent of SPECTRE Series 8 was easily the best season in a long while so if Moffat decided to retcon it completely there would be riots on the streets. I think it's safe to say this theory isn't correct!

Oops, I picked the wrong episode! Was meant to pick A Christmas Carol but clicked Last Christmas instead

Personally I think Clara's storyline is spent. She has been a really good companion for the entirety of Season 8 and had a really interesting plotline in both her series but I think another series with Clara might be a stretch too far. This isn't to say that I don't like Clara, just that I'd wish she's go out on a high rather than becoming the doughy-eyed girl that she was in Series 7B again.
2 months, 1 week ago on Clara’s Fate & Series 9 (Spoilers)
For me, one of the best Clara scenes is the one at the end of 'Kill The Moon'. It shows that Clara isn't just another dreamy-eyed companion who will follow the Doctor to the end of the world (as some of them do); she is a strong, independent character who isn't afraid to stand up to the Doctor when he is patronising her. I really hated Clara by the end of Series 7, but throughout Series 8 I'd say Clara is easily one of the best NuWho companions to date (under Rose of course!)

Definitely either full companion option. I think beginning a companion mid-series is a bad choice as, as we've seen with Clara, character development will be severely lacking.

Personally, I don't think a non-human 21st century companion would work. Since Who returned in 2005, the companion role has become the personification of the audience as they ask the question we want asked and provide a window to the Doctor. A Time Lord so volatile as Capaldi plus a non-human companion would be (excuse the pun) alienating.

I want a spin off with Missy and Osgood travelling together in the Nethersphere
@thebluetooth @Handles Missy's death felt far too insignificant, the Doctor seemed completely unphased compared to his "death" in Last of the Time Lords

@Admin short for Administrator! @madbuk But her teleporter was stolen by Clara?
@madbuk @Pipnant @SulaymanKhan Teleported away like Bad Wolf?
We were so close to finding Gallifrey.... X_X
@SulaymanKhan Is Clara returning? Is Missy really dead? Is Osgood really dead?
@madbuk Let's hope...
@The Mistress has landed and she is glorious Mine was when she was singing 'Hey Missy you're so fine'. Michelle Gomez is my favourite Master ever!!
@YesMaster And Michelle Gomez was so good...
My theory: at the end of the episode, The Doctor and The Master swap bodies (hence Missy's sudden awakening in the TV trailer), Michelle Gomez becomes awesome new female doctor and Peter Capaldi becomes awesome new moody Master. Like? :D

As to the he/she argument, I think we should call the Time Lord/Lady by their current or last known gender when speaking generally but if talking about a specific incarnation's actions, then use the appropriate pronoun to that incarnation. For example at the moment, we could call The Master/Mistress she in general, but if talking about Roger Delado's Master's actions, they would be HIS actions.

OK so it looks like Clara dies early on in this episode as you can see her coming out of an RIP box when she's facing the cybermen. Also, The Doctor is alone for all of the UNIT bit so looks like goodbye Clara! :S
I have to admit, I had really low hopes for this episode, but I was blown away by it! Behind Listen, it's the best story of the series. Beautiful to watch and a great, original story to follow. And doesn't Dark Water look amazing?!?!
4 months, 1 week ago on Rate & Discuss In the Forest of the Night
I really don't get this whole Clara Who thing. Clara has not been more heavily featured than any other companions, the only time she was overused was in the half Doctor-lite episode Flatline. At EVERY other episode she was used just as much as a companion should be. For half of Mummy, she wasn't even there?! What's everyone's problem? NuWho is more about the companion's journey anyway so I really don't understand this whole thing.

5 months ago on Next Time: Mummy on the Orient Express
For me it was a bit overhyped, definitely undeserving of DWTV's 10/10. I gave it an 8 which is still an amazing score for me. My best bits: the spiders (so gross, best creature-monster in a while!), the dilemma and Courtney and Clara's relationship. Worst bits: the scene on the beach (HOW COULD IT LAY A NEW MOON IT WAS ONLY JUST BORN), Lundvik (badly acted, IMO) and the weird bit where the Doctor left. However, Series 8 is still incredible for me. It's the best series of NuWho so far without a doubt.
5 months ago on Rate & Discuss Kill the Moon
For me it's The Unicorn and the Wasp. I absolutely loved The Caretaker (which I was actually surprised about as I thought I was going to hate it) but TUatW is one of my all time favourites. A classic Whodunnit which has one of the best scripts of NuWho. The Ten/Donna relationship in this episode is side-splitting.

The toughest poll yet! As much as I adored listen I think it just falls slightly short of Blink as it did re-hash the invisible monster type idea (although, in it's defence, it did put a unique spin on it) and the wibbly-wobbly-times-wimey plotline to Blink was just incredible and the Weeping Angels were a stroke of genius. For me, Listen is a very close second to best NuWho episode yet.

@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.

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!
