A nice list and a good article to read. However I can't say that I would have picked the same. I agree with picking the "I am The Doctor" scene from 'The Eleventh Hour', as well as Eleven's final regeneration scene from 'The Time Of The Doctor'. However in the other 3 spaces I would have put Eleven's speech from 'The Pandorica Opens', Eleven's speech to the evil sun in 'The Rings Of Akhaten', and also... I honestly don't know about my final choice. Make it up for me.

That was a nice, relaxing episode. It was never going to be one of the greatest of all time, nor was it supposed to be an action packed thriller. It was supposed to just be a nice little relaxing episode before the epic finale. I for one quite enjoyed it, though I doubt it'll be an episode I'll want to watch again.

My god. I am still in shock over how amazing that next time trailer looked! To be honest I've found Series 8 to have been one of the most disappointing series in Doctor Who, but this finale might change that. The wait till next Saturday night is going to be brutal.

I agree with all of the best, apart from Luke (so cringey to watch in 'The Stolen Earth'), and Courtney Woods. In 'Kill The Moon', she was cringey to hear speak a good amount of her lines. Personally I'd put her under the list of worst child actors. I'm incredibly surprised with the statement that George received "a fair amount of backlash". Really? Considering his age, he gave an incredible performance.

My opinion is no. The Doctor just hasn't been written as well as Clara. It's all down to the writers. It took us 9 episodes to finally get a "I Am The Doctor" scene.

Flatline easily, without a shadow of a doubt. 'Flatline' was a great episode, 8/10. Whereas 'Mummy' was a decent episode, but too slow and boring for my liking, 6/10.

Ehh, yet again another episode that was voted far higher than I would have scored it. I found 'Mummy' a decent episode, but boring in places. Overall 6/10. Am I the only one who's just not feeling Series 8? In my opinion it's the weakest series since Series 4. Not a single episode I've been able to score higher than 8/10. Still waiting to be impressed. Hopefully the finale changes all that.

8/10. Pretty good. Still waiting for an outstanding episode this series though. I'm just glad that for once I wasn't let down by high expectations. 


Disappointed that the old guy didn't wind up with a painful death. His character was so easy to hate, that I was waiting and waiting for him to be killed. Complete and utter moron.


One thing I don't understand though is the interaction at the end between The Doctor and Clara? Why didn't The Doctor tell her that she had done good? She had by all accounts done a spectacular job of saving the Earth. So why on Earth didn't The Doctor give her a well deserved complement? It just seems there is more and more friction, which is possibly foreshadowing for Clara's permanent exit.

2 weeks ago on ‘Doctor Who’ or ‘Clara Who?’

Reply

I'll be honest, I don't like it. I like the gold colour and the idea of cogs with character's faces inside them, but Clara's pose just looks wrong in my opinion. I think if a different pose was used, probably with Clara facing forward, it would look great. 

So happy that the Deep Breath Cinema Panel will be included as an extra. Unlike Doctor Who Extra after 'Deep Breath', my cinema gave no indication that anything more was to follow, and so I had completely forgotten about the post-show panel and walked out. By the time the panel started I was already out of the cinema screen, and so I wasn't about to walk back in. Glad that I'll finally have the chance to watch it. Is that all of the extras or is there more to follow? Seems a lot shorter than usual. What about the cinema exclusive Strax scene? Or is that exclusive to the 'Deep Breath' DVD?

@The Finn @ahunter8056 @Gustaff Whether the viewers liked it or not is beside the point. My point was responding to Gustaff's point that some viewers expect a Rose return every couple of years.

@Gustaff She hardly shows up every couple of years. Her first comeback in 2008 was something that had been planned since her departure. Her second comeback in 2010 was a brief cameo to end the Tenth Doctor era. Her third (and final to date) comeback in 2014 was an entirely different character.

Already read these interviews and enjoyed them. It would still be great to have one last Rose Tyler appearance alongside Nine or Ten (during their time in the TARDIS), meeting another TARDIS crew (preferably Twelve and Clara). Even if Billie Piper has changed a lot since 2006, it would still be great to have one last Rose Tyler appearance. However with that said, I'd be happy to see her back as many times as possible. If it weren't for Series 8 Clara, Rose would still be top of my list of favourite companions.

Went with Doctor Who for best drama, and Jenna Coleman for best performance. Nothing against Peter Capaldi as he has given great performances in the role and he is a great actor, but Jenna Coleman has been nothing short of revolutionarily brilliant this year and it would be a crime for her not to win.

I am honestly shocked at the Clara/Doctor poll. I fully expected Clara to win, and I don't understand why anyone would vote for The Doctor. In my opinion, The Doctor was 100%, entirely wrong. I understand what The Doctor's motivation might have been, but he still did it entirely the wrong way.

Ehh, I'd give it 6/10. Decent, but slightly boring in places, just as I expected it to be. Was never terribly excited about this episode, and my expectations were spot on. A very nice surprise to see Clara in it. Was unsure as to whether or not she'd appear, although it was very surprising to see her and The Doctor getting on very well at the start, but at least it was addressed 5 minutes later. 



That last scene. Oh my god that last scene! Absolutely magnificent! Loved it. Such a happy scene and a lovely moment, with spectacular acting from Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman. After last week's sad ending, I'm glad to see it pay off with a lovely happy ending.




To conclude: 

Episode rating - 6/10

@Ottoman14 I feel a similar way. I'm only looking forward to this episode purely just because it's a new episode of Doctor Who, but mainly because it's the only one to go until 'Flatline'. Been looking forward to Flatline since the first filming photos of the ep surfaced. Even more so now that it's been revealed to be a Clara-centric episode.

@Beasts_a_Snarling How does abandoning a good friend and refusing to give help when asked for it count as respect? He could have allowed them to decide their own future without abandoning Clara. He could have stayed there and given help when asked for it.
