@DocWhoFan The biggest one for me is why did Missy need Clara and the Doctor to travel together in the first place?

I agree with you. The biggest problem for me wasn't the gender, or the casting, but the fact it had absolutely no relevance to the character we saw in The End of Time, which I rewatched two days ago. I hope all this is cleared up in series 9.

@Handles Yeah, I thought (or hoped) that that was the end of that. I was a little disappointed to be honest.

@Gallade Zero I think a single companion can get boring after a while, and it's good when they leave and aren't killed off, so they make a small pleasant return later.

I really hope she doesn't stay for any longer. She is a very average at best actress (I personally would say pretty bad), and her character just irritates me a lot. I think Doctor Who could do with somebody new and I'd love to see how 12 gets along with finding a new companion.

Oh, I ought to point out a few really great bits too I suppose!

We had episodes like Deep Breath, Listen, and Time Heist. We had a cool theme tune and title. Most important of all: PETER CAPALDI!

@Huknar Trouble is, if you can't notice very much music during the episode itself then it's a bit too late to appreciate it afterwards, if you see what I mean.

@TheOncomingFish In all honesty when it comes to ideas, I think they ought to let fans have inputs to the episodes. Silly as it seems, when you have Moffat asking people like Gattis to write and you end up with things which just aren't particularly great it is disappointing.

I'm pretty sure if I attempted one I could come up with something really great and original.

Series 8 had great potential to take the challenge to series 4 (my personal favourite), and it was fantastic.

However, I do feel that poor / a lack of incidental music by Murray Gold, inconsistent episodes (particularly at the start of the series), a poor conclusion to Death in Heaven, cringey awful acting from Jenna Coleman, along with a very unrealistic relationship with Pink, and a demeaning title sequence in Death in Heaven ruined it.

For me this series was still very very good, but it fell down to 4th place, behind series 4, 2, and 1.

Just to note, I've always thought Murray Gold is fantastic, but these past few months have proved me incorrect it seems. I hope he goes.

@supermoff is your new lodger- I mean, caretaker. So many instances in the episode that I thought could fit in that had no apparent linking, such as with the woman who could transform hence the Doctor could see his face, and when he was trying to remember something at the end (clones and stuff), and the last 2 remaining of the species.

For me Blink is the best episode ever. I liked Listen but I felt that all the elements of the story were taken from other stories (although ironically mostly Moffat stories). Something hiding under your bed (The Girl in the Fireplace), something you cannot see hidden in the shadows (Silence in the Library), an unknown being banging at the door of a lone spaceship (Midnight), silence (all of series 5 and 6), something in the corner of your eye (primarily The Eleventh Hour). All this just sort of made it feel unoriginal. Also, I did not work out that that was a young Doctor in the bed at the end until I read about it.

@SonicTheHedgehogRules I personally don't believe there is enough proof he can write a really good Doctor Who episode though, as for many of us. I know he can write other things well, but not Doctor Who.

In my view all of his episodes have been somewhere between very boring average and extremely awful.

@Scootersfood No, that's not a fair thing to say. Everybody is entitled to an opinion, and everybody can argue or defend the point, but saying things like this just irritates me. A lot. Aside from anything that's a pretty nasty welcome for a new person, but why because they state their opinion must they be 'new to the show'?

The daleks were definitely more threatening, but for me this did ruin their continuity and past existence a lot. The visuals were brilliant, but the plot was too rushed and also it was a bit inevitable what was going to happen, and then the end was a bit silly tbh. And I already don't like the whole Clara / Pink thing. Just doesn't work but as a character he is okay, and Clara wasn't as bad to watch this time.

I think ultimately it was Jenna Coleman's unsatisfactory acting that did it for me. It was very cringey.

It was so close (they are just an episode apart in my ranking) but The Eleventh Hour did it for me, only just. I love them both! Even so, I think that Deep Breath can only get higher in my personal ranking.

Maybe I regret my decision already..

In all honest I'm not too sorry if this is true. I don't dislike Clara particularly, but I think a different character would be better. Nothing against Jenna though.

I just don't see why we need a new one after half a series! It makes no sense.

The 2005 one lasted until the start of 2010, over 4 series, with only a few minor modifications, in the form of one minor change in the music, and one small logo modification.

The 2010 one lasted until 2012, over 2.5 series, with at least 7 vortex and logo modifications.

This one just gone is my favourite by far but it has only featured in 10 full episodes.

I just don't see the point. I don't really like this that much (although I may change my mind on the 23rd – we'll see), and it seems a bit irrelevant.

I wonder what they've done to the music though. Have they got rid of the dreadful counter-melody fanfare?
