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.

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?!?!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
