@Ottoman14 @ClaraOswald Like I said, Eccleston was my first Doctor. So I voted for him, because yes, I do read the articles before voting and commenting. Still doesn't mean Eccleston is MY Doctor.
2 days, 15 hours ago on From 1-12: Who is YOUR Doctor?
Yes, I did vote for Eccleston. I read the article before I commented, relax.
My first Doctor was Eccleston, but he is definitely not MY Doctor. Matt Smith is MY Doctor. I used to think Tennant was, but then the 50th Anniversary came around and I got to see Tennant and Smith together and I realised that the Eleventh Doctor is closest to my heart.
My Classic Doctor so far is Pertwee, with Davison close behind.
2 days, 16 hours ago on From 1-12: Who is YOUR Doctor?
I hope Jenna stays for AT LEAST another series. Clara is a brilliant character and she's been a wonderful addition to the show. If it wasn't for Jenna/Clara, I would definitely have had a harder time accepting Twelve.

Capaldi as the Doctor: Hit!
Jenna as Clara: HITHITHIT
Series 8 as a whole: Meh.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Poll: Capaldi’s Doctor – Hit or Miss?
I never liked the Clara/Danny pairing, so no sadness for me there. I never felt anything for Missy, so nothing there either. Clara leaving? Well, Jenna is in the Christmas special, so no lasting grief. The only thing that made me feel, well, //anything// was Osgood's death. Other than that, I just felt empty and unsatisfied.
The story was a jumble of too many things happening at once, everything felt rushed.
Not a favourite, which I am really upset about, because I wanted it to be fantastic and I wanted to love it, but I just don't.

I have to go with Utopia. Sorry, Moffat.

Oh dear, ahahaha! Well, I rated it a 6/10, so I guess the majority agreed on that rating. It definitely suffered from the "Filler Episode Syndrome", unfortunately.
The Caretaker is still my least favourite of the series though.

It was very predictable, but still well executed in my opinion. Not sure what I think yet, I have a feeling Moffat might be tricking us still.

This one is a tough one to rate, hmm... I think I'll go with 8/10. Can't wait to see how Moffat rounds the series off next Saturday!

Definitely Jamie Mathieson for me, I hope we get to see more episodes from him in the future. Richard Curtis takes second place.

I'd vote for Peter if there was a separate Actor/Actress category, but since he's up against Jenna I'm afraid he's got no choice with me. Jenna has been amazing and finally the rest of the fandom are seeing what some of us have been seeing all the time: that her acting game is hella strong. She's definitely one of the best actresses I've ever watched and she works incredibly hard and is so dedicated to her work. She literally works until she becomes ill, I've witnessed it. So she's the only worthy winner of that award in my opinion.

I'm looking forward to all of these episodes, more so than the first half of the series. Although if something happens to Clara I might break something. Because no one messes with MY companion.

Didn't enjoy it very much. I don't like Danny and his relationship with Clara. The Doctor was great though, I felt like I could connect with him more now.

8/10 for me. I really enjoyed the pace, the environment and the "monster". It reminded me a bit of The God Complex with the whole picking them off one by one, but not in a bad way. Loved all the references to past episodes as well.

Best episode of series 8 yet, in my opinion.
Loved the War Doctor reference (although I wish I hadn't found out about it on here before the episode). Clara Oswald once again proved why she is one of the greatest companions of all time. It was scary, which I thoroughly enjoyed. And the Danny plot thickens. Can't wait to find out more!
I'm Norwegian and watching through crappy livestreams with terrible sound quality and I have no problem understand what Capaldi is saying.

Tought one, but I had to go for The Crimson Horror. Loved that episode. Robot of Sherwood is my second favourite of his.

I love the sound of this. Unfortunately for me I am following quite a few spoiler happy people on Twitter who have watched the leaked episode and are posting about it, but I'm excited nonetheless.

I had to go with The Eleventh Hour. After watching Matt's first episode I instantly felt like he was the Doctor. I didn't get that feeling for Peter in Deep Breath, although I really enjoyed the episode and his acting.

I hated the 10/Rose romance and 11/River was even worse. Amy/Rory was fine, so I'm interested to see how this romance works out.
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Coleman on Clara and Danny in Series 8
I'm sort of neutral too. On one side, it might be the only way for me to watch the episode legally in my own country (I'm Norwegian and Doctor Who isn't broadcast here, no news from cinemas yet though). On the other hand, although the episode is special, it's not THAT special. So yeah. I'm neutral.
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Does Deep Breath Really Deserve a Theatrical Release?
I absolutely love Clara (well, duh, just look at my username) and she's my favourite companion of all time. And yes, I have watched a lot of the classics, so don't go all "well, you've probably only watched New Who" on me. Now, I will admit, I was a fan of Jenna BEFORE I saw anything of her in Doctor Who, so am I biased? Maybe.
What I love about Clara is her down-to-earth, normal, brilliant but flawed character. She's a skeptic, she doesn't just jump in the TARDIS and leave everything and everyone behind. She knows she has responsibilities, she knows that one day the adventure will end and she's doing her best to maintain a somewhat normal life on Earth. She's useful, intelligent, brave and loyal - everything I want in a companion. But she's far from perfect (a so-called Mary Sue). She's quite proud, she's a control freak, bossy, sometimes a little shallow, possibly even a bit jealous and quite naive in my opinion. Those flaws add depth to her character - more depth that I've seen in Amy, for example.
I'm having a hard time understanding why people DIDN'T like her "Impossible Girl" story arc in series 7 part 2. For me, it was the greatest arc we've had since the "knock four times" theme in series 4. The timing was perfect what with the 50th Anniversary and all. She's basically the Doctor's soul mate, she's the only reason he's got his TARDIS and is travelling around unharmed. She looks after him, but she never asks anything in return. She just cares that much about him and he loves her for it. I have a feeling a lot of Clara haters are Ten/Rose or Eleven/River shippers who think that the Doctor shouldn't love anyone else. That's just immature. He loved his companions before Rose/River and he will love his companions after Rose/River and yes, Clara.
I think Clara has brought new life to the show. A new energy, new dynamic and lots of great moments. In some ways, she's the most important companion we've ever had and I'm so grateful to have her in series 8. I love Moffat for having created her and I love Jenna for portraying her perfectly.
Okay, my long opinion comment is done.
