Um.... Not sure if the article shows up... Let me try again:
Sorry to be a downer, but it has been scientificly proven that too much optimism can be just as bad too much pessimism. If you think about it, it makes sense; too much of anything is not good for anyone.

Personally, I don't want the Soap Opera crossover idea which was the RTD era. Tone it down a little and we can get some real character development.
1 week, 1 day ago on Moffat: Series 8 Not A Fairytale, There Are Consequences
What if Moffat is trying to tell us something! You may have struck gold! What if The Doctor goes back in time and leaves Clara to become the mother of the Doctor! And because she is obviously the Rani sent on a mission by Omega it is biologically possible! Oh wait! Better still, if she isn't the Rani than that explains how the Doctor is half-human! It all makes sense!
Ok. Shall we start again:

If Series 8 doesn't work, I swear I will do an Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" on him...
Oh wait, that's kind of creepy. Well, Moffat wanted Series 8 to be dark, I suppose he'd like his murder the same....
But it did do turkey..... And surely if it can do turkey it can do chicken....
Well, anyone up for some fried chicken?
Come with me! And you'll be! In a world of pure imagination!
I'll just be leaving.....
But think of Clara as a chicken!! Wouldn't it be amazing!
Ok. Ok, just kidding.
It was just a hypothetical situation....
By the way, the trend so far has shown that from Series 7 onwards he has tried to please the fan base.
True, he should have trusted his own instincts I mean look at Series 5 and his consistent success for episodes in the RTD Era!
I think this time around (after the mixed result of Series 7 and Time of the Doctor) he is going for a more balanced approach kind of like the 50th except leaning towards his own judgment...
I wonder what would happen if Moffat heard that all the fans wanted Clara to turn into a chicken. Would he?
I personally prefer magic realism; kind of a mix of both.
In the end, it all depends on the quality regardless of the approach.
I look through these comments and in my head I am screaming:
Why can't anyone watch a TV Series with an OPEN MIND!!!!!!!!!!!
And for you reality is finding a TARDIS on any corner on the street?
I would agree with you because your comment brings up some great points, but I have to say (from a filmmaking point of view) that music is just window dressing.
The problem with music is that it tends to carry the tone of the scene entirely without allowing the scene to be interesting visually.
The scene is not very good if it can't stand on its own without music. It just proves that the creators were unable to display tone effectively.
If music is used correctly, then it adds to the scene rather than becoming the scene.
Bring on the controversy...

I don't take sides. I'm 50/50; it's best for the show to balance it's varying tones.
Ah! Not darker! I should have been more specific; he will descend to extremes
I think that Capaldi's Doctor will start filled with hope after saving Gallifrey and gaining a new set of Regenerations. But slowly, he will descend to become darker. The situations he finds himself in will be responsible for this transformation.
Wait, wait. wait, a minute! This article claims The Ninth Doctor was young-spirited? What???

2 weeks, 2 days ago on Doctor Who Series 8 TV Launch Trailer
Who said a few furnishings did any harm? In this case, it did a treat!
Trailers are meant to draw the crowd's attention. The majority of the fandom wanted more grit, and so we got a trailer with grit. The show itself, doesn't have to be gritty. I think Moffat and co are aware of the dangers of over-saturation of media with a particular tone.
Hmm... Reading through the comments, it appears that some people are worried about the "grittiness" of the trailer. I think we can all agree that one of the common problems of the show as we know it is the lack of threat. Judging by the trailer and Moffat's style I expect that this problem will be appropriately dealt with. What others see as darkness, I see as the show's wariness to the idea that the universe is not as utopian as we have grown to think in the 11th Doctor's Era; so I doubt the show will become too dark under Moffat. He has shown adept ability to balance light and dark. Moffat uses plenty of humor and wonder in his scripts and I don't see how Series 8 will be any different. The time to worry is not now; that time is when we get a new show runner. Going back to the show's self-awareness of its problem; One can look at other TV Shows or Films, and can see that a little bit of darkness nudges the media to more threatening situations and therefore more character development.
This is too much to handle!!!!!
@Scootersfood Because it was also broadcasted in the US, the show had to adapt to the customs of TV shows in the US.
TV shows in the US are considerably different than the ones in the UK.
People are upset because Torchwood, a British show, had changed from the format that worked well for it in the past; Children of Earth for example.
RTD and co, tried to please audiences from the UK and the US, but in so doing created a jarring mix of chocolate and tomato soup.

"Doctor Who is science. It's history. It's magic, adventure, fantasy. It's about people and planets. It's about whatever it wants to be about. A world where fiction becomes real? Okay. A malevolent Billy Bunter with a death-trap board game? Why not? Green slime that turns people into raging beasts, or another that produces giant maggots? We can do both! We can remake the Prisoner of Zenda in space and have aliens commit art thefts. We can race galleons through space, turn people into trees and make psychopathic robots out of sweets. The possibilities are limitless, and that's why I love Doctor Who."
That. That. That was the best paragraph in the history of paragraphs....

Finally something personal! Well done. The most effective way to speak to the fandom is through a story that has a significance to all of us. This article is something we all can relate to. Fantastic!
Interesting article. You are a very talented writer and I love how you engage us in thinking about morality in general. To me the Doctor is a good man, for it is not the actions that define us, but the purpose behind them.

@Omega Arsenal @Beasts_a_Snarling @Ashdude97 Oh yes. My opinion is that I hate someone I don't even know personally. He is just denouncing things without relevant evidence.
@Americanwhovian Oooh. So many wonderful contradictions and so called "plot holes" I love them to be honest! It's quite fun to see people twitch their eyes brows in confusion and then work out this possible impossibility! Ok, Earth was destroyed in the End of the World, but remember Ravalox?????!?! Yes, Earth transferred to another end of the Galaxy! A totally contradictory story to that of End of the World. Of course there are numerous ways around this contradiction, but the point is this: Nothing in Doctor Who is certain. Ok I have several counters around your points: 1)The tree of evolution has many individual branches separating from the main branch. It is possible that the Time Lords deviated from the Humans on a branch of there own and died out before the events of Utopia. 2) I referred to this earlier in my comment. It is possible that the Time Lords Humans left Earth and found Gallifrey, eventually becoming the Time Lords they are. Of course this is all speculation and various ramblings and conjecture.
@NightRises Rule 1. The Doctor lies.
@Skylord Marc As I have mentioned countless times before; an alien is a being from another world. This does not mean they are not necessarily human. Hell, they can be an ape born on Mars! The Time Lords may be RELATED to humans, but that doesn't mean they are HUMANS. The Doctor would technically remain an alien....
@Adric the Genius @Beasts_a_Snarling There are many deviations from the track of evolution. A branch off this track may be the Time Lords. Why do you fear change? Is it dangerous? Risky?
@Adric the Genius Why not?
@Silas P Would he reveal such a secret though????
@Ashdude97 Dude. Just rethink what you just said. Now.
I like this theory. Controversial ideas are the best. It is extremely plausible and the only reason people disagree is because people fear a contradiction between what they see as right for the show and what the show might imply. By the way. Nice Planet of the Apes reference....
@stargazer0118 @Oodkind Yeah, that's one of the things that RTD got right.
