This is good, and as for the Dalek episodes, lets just hope this / these are decent. We haven't had a good one (excluding Day, as they weren't the main plot) since 2008.

No! As much as I like the idea, I don't get why old villains have to be killed off and just turn out to have survived 5 years later. It gets repetitive, honestly. I don't see why Davros cannot just be left alone now. And at the moment it is 6 (7 next year) years since he was on, but realistically that is not that long. If enemies are going to keep on reappearing, it needs to be a massive gap (10 years), otherwise the novelty and surprise is gone.

Very good list. One thing that you talked of at the end was great – experience with space travel.

Too many doctors would have ruined it in my view. It was fine like this. In fairness, 1-3 are dead, 4 was in it, 5-7 weren't, 8 had a minisode, 9 wasn't and 10-11 were, so out of 8, 4 were a part of it!! Not bad really. Plus we got a new Doctor, and we still got the 'all twelve' moment, which then became 'all thirteen', so to say there weren't any classics isn't fair.

Seriously? Only one two-parter. Not meaning to sound ungrateful or rude here, but has nobody at the BBC learned that the vast majority of people want a decent amount of two-parters, and are fed up of not having one since the middle of series 6, in 2011. Last series without two-parters just felt horrible having so many short stories like that. And we're going to have to do that again until the last story?

I agree with everything here.


Also, there are no survival problems with them. It is known that there are cyber legions everywhere, and they have many forms and evolve, etc., unlike daleks which have their continuity completely messed up now. Finally, they have cybershades, cybermats, cybermice, etc., which are so cool!

I also think that cybermen stories are generally written better. Out of 5 cybermen stories (where they are the main plot) in the modern era, there is not a single one I think is not particularly good (I'm not a fan of Nightmare in Silver, but it wasn't a bad episode, I just didn't like it that much), whereas with daleks there are 8 stories, 3 of which (all the 11th Doctor ones sadly, not saying I hate the entire era though. It includes Time but not Day) I disliked.

Completely agree with every sentence! Even the dalek's existence itself is questionable: going from "they always survive" to suddenly a massive fleet of daleks with insane ones that were all supposed to have been destroyed. It makes absolutely no sense. As for the daleks forgetting the Doctor, at first I liked this, and was excited to see where Moffat would take this idea. Only for the next time they appear (excluding the time war daleks), they just extract some memories from somebody and as if it never happened. Very poor writing.

One thing I've always thought about returning is the Vashta Nerada.

You mentioned Moffat having only two major male characters, but would Jack count as his too, as he was first introduced in Moffat's story, or was he put in there by RTD?

@DasManiac  I know many people find this controversial, but I would like to see RTD return to do an episode. Definitely no more Gatiss. I really dislike his writing in Doctor Who.

@JustMarianna I agree. Although I was dying to know with was in room 11, I think that it was made the crack just as a simple solution to that one. In my opinion it would have been much better had they simply not answered this one, leaving it open to interpretation and ideas.

@TheCapaldiMasterplan for me personally of these episodes were better than NT, even L&M.

@DasManiac  Exactly what I voted. Worst. Episode. Ever.

@ilyootha @YgorVale  In Day they actually say that the high council's plans have already failed (referring to bringing Gallifrey to Earth), and that Gallifrey is still in the firing line.

@YgorVale @Xisco Lozdob  But in Day, they weren't pleased about Gallifrey being frozen, and would have rather returned there and then.

@YgorVale  I see it as if the fixed point was created around 11's timeline, so therefore it did not exist during 10's time.

@Me and Stuff @lp229  I think that it would be in the newspapers actually. Maybe not the front page, but it would be in many somewhere. It's not minor, it's a big deal. The showrunner has as much impact on the show as the actors themselves. Doctor Who TV for some reason I am unable to insert new lines in my comments, and it sometimes comes up with an error message not letting me post.

@lp229  I have to completely agree (other than I really don't like Gatiss' Doctor Who stories, he is my least favourite Who writer). Although I like 45 minutes (it feels right for Doctor Who), 2 part stories are better than 1 part only, and they are indeed more logical. The Library and the Sontaran episodes are perfect examples of this.

@Petrolheaded Wholockian  I thought this too, but I came to the conclusion that as there were a few seconds before the fez and the Doctor coming through, it may be that the Doctor remembers the fez appearing.

@TakeTheType40 Ah well we know he has regenerated because of the ears line, but not much else told us that really. A simple solution would have been, instead of sandshoes, chinny, and granddad, it could have been sandshoes, chinny, and ears or something like that, and then he was just checking.

@Rule27 @JJ2000  Yes, I was wondering the same. I felt there were a lot of things which could have been better, but on the hole it was brillinat in my opinion!


I think the thing is with Moffat's writing is that it was very different when he was able to spend so much time doing a single story in a year, and where he was able to just do whatever he wanted in a single 45 minutes / 1h 30m. Now he is lead writer there is a lot more to do.


I personally like all of the episodes in series 4 the best, so if many of these writers were doing episodes it would be great.

@WiblyWoblyTimyWimyMOFFAT  I can imagine Capaldi's doctor as the sort of person who would get a little fed up of only having female companions ;) Then again, let's wait and see what he is like :P

To be honest I don't think 'darker' is at all necessary. I just dislike the fairy tale spin that there is at the moment. Less plot holes, more serious stuff is really what should happen in my opinion.

3/10. Not that good if I'm honest. I just don't like the 'one ship survived' excuse being used AGAIN.


That said, I did find a nice animation on YouTube (The Dalek that Time Forgot). It's not clear who made it or if it is official, but either way I like to think that it happened, as it makes this episode seem a little bit better.
