Notice how every single dalek episode (since the revival at least) has been against humans (other aliens getting involved of course, but humans are always there). That gets boring. Why not mix it up?

@Typo42 "Magic Carrots" If it's undone know then it isn't an issue, but so you know in the future, go on the article history, go to the vandalised edit and press undo, giving a brief explanation that it was vandalism.

@Oswald Danes Vashta Nerada need to come back if and only if they can do them justice with a seriously good episode. We don't want a repeat of the weeping angels.

I would love to see the rastons back.. Even better would be with hardly any modifications. Honestly, seeing that is one of the creepiest things going.

If you define religion as "going to some important building and hearing stories from an old book about a big man in the sky?" then you do not understand religion at all. It has a much greater meaning and importance than that, and the man in the sky is not a man, nor is he in the sky.


"Travelling through space at the speed of light for what you would perceive as 5 years". Assuming hypothetically travelling at the speed of light is possible, you would have no perception of time at all as it becomes effectively infinite / non-existent, so therefore you could not perceive 5 years. But given it is impossible to travel at such a speed, assuming you are just below the speed of light, and you perceive 5 years while the rest of Earth perceives more, it is not technically time travel, like you say. It is just the effect of time dilation, which is not the same as literally travelling in time – it is just where time runs at a different rate.

I would just like to say that of course these ratings are not representative of the general opinion, as most of the people on this site are obviously pretty big whovians, hence most episodes score very highly, as is evidenced with only two episodes being less than 5.0.


That said, it says a lot for the overall standard of the show :)

This is interesting.. And controversial. Not all of them deserve to be there in my view, and I can't help but feel there is a bit of bias with some of the more recent ones potentially being ranked higher.

Given what Moffat has said about two part stories potentially being at any point, I really wouldn't be surprised if he shocked us with a three – or even four part episode at the end. That would be quite something.

This is definitely one of the weaker runs of new who. It wasn't bad, by any means other than Night Terrors, which was an absolute mare, but it was not exceptional really.

@supermoff I really didn't like this one. From what I saw it was just a load of shouting at the sky, thinking they wanted to take the pandorica, when actually they were just waiting for him to shut up so they could stick him in it.

@Djornad It is highly unlikely they will be each an hour long. That was a rumour last year too, and it didn't happen.


There could be a series full of 2-part episodes though!

That said, apparently, according to what I've just read, they are an hour each.

@Mark McCullough Because the episode was about the Doctor trying to 'beat time', so to speak. He said that the laws of time are his, so he believes he can do what he wants.
