@Amy is Hannibal Personally I remember enjoying the first episode of SJA on broadcast, but then again, I was a kid then so it would have appealed to me. However I tried watching an episode a few months ago, and I found it far too cheesy for my liking.

@DavidBlyth @Adherent @supermoff Doctor Who is definitely not a kids show. Doctor Who is a family show. There is a massive difference between a kids show and a family show. Kids shows appeal purely to children, whereas family shows appeal to all ages, whether it be children, adults, or the elderly.

Given my luck, I bet I'll be working on the 23rd. I just hope that the statement of "Doctor Who: Deep Breath will be screened in participating cinemas around the world from 23 August, 2014" means that it will be in cinemas in the UK on dates after the 23rd. Seeing 'The Day Of The Doctor' in cinemas was absolutely brilliant, so I'd love to go see Doctor Who in the cinemas again.

A good article, but I'd just like to point out one thing. "He has the companions: two school teachers". Sorry, what? Clara is the only companion. If the second companion was referring to Danny Pink, I was under the impression that he is nothing more than a recurring character. I am sure that there was no announcement that he was a new companion. I'm open to being proved wrong though.

I'll only be buying this if it's an extended edition of the 2013 Doctor Who Prom. The broadcast version cut out way too many vital pieces.

A really nice, and a very interesting article. I had never thought about it like that, but each console room more or less does reflect the current Doctor. Personally, my favourite control room will always be the 2005-2010 one, but the current one is a close second.

That sounds great. It seems we're heading in a marvellous direction. I've missed the companions having a family and a proper life before meeting The Doctor, so Clara's family being introduced in 'The Time Of The Doctor' was great. Now onto the fairytale elements. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed Series 5-7. However there were moments in which I personally feel it got too silly and unbelieveable. Yes I know, it's a show about an alien with two hearts who can change his face. But there still has to be some degree of believability to it. The fairytale elements being toned down sounds like a very interesting direction. I can't wait! :D

@Swozor @ahunter8056 The Sonic Screwdriver and TARDIS are both incredibly useful devices that can be used to move the story along. Both are used for unexpected things as well as their main functions. The sonic screwdriver is a device which is expected to open doors. The TARDIS is a machine which is expected to travel from one destination to another. The Sonic Screwdriver has also been used to connect barbed wire and burn rope. The TARDIS has also been used to move a planet. Both are used to move the story forward, whilst being used for tasks other than the expected. Like it or not, they do share similarities.

Until the "Worst Offense" section, I was entirely in agreement with this article. Personally I love the Sonic Screwdriver and don't mind it being used as a solution to an episode. I don't understand why people have a problem with it. Why don't we just force The Doctor to walk to all of his destinations instead of using the TARDIS?

I completely agree with pretty much the entire article. I think that there should be a special celebrating the 10th anniversary of the revival. Obviously not as big as 'The Day Of The Doctor', but a special to celebrate it nonetheless. As much as I love The Tenth Doctor and Rose, I also agree that they shouldn't return, should the special take place, for  the exact same reasons in this article. Companion-wise, I'd love to see any return.

@MatthewBagnall He is right though to be fair. Whether it's Doctor Who or a different TV programme, or even video games. There will always be people who will always complain. Yet they still watch every episode of those TV programmes or buy those games.

I only bothered reading the introduction, and the Doctor Who and Harry Potter sections, but it was an interesting read. I agree with the conclusion, we do need a spin-off film. Personally I think a film showing The War Doctor taking part in the Time War would work extremely well, a similar kind of story as the 'Engines Of War' book released at the end of this month.

Personally I think the show is fine the way it is. One of the things that I love about Doctor Who is the fact that is a family show, and therefore appeals to all ages. Personally I hate gore, and find it entirely unnecessary, but then again I am an incredibly squeamish person. Darker shows tend to showcase vast quantities of gore. Obviously Doctor Who is going to stay a family show, but hypothetically if it did go far into the darker areas, bordering on a purely adult show, I am sure that it would come to display a fair amount of gore. A show with a similar genre to Doctor Who, like Game Of Thrones for example is one that may very well be well made in terms of production values as well as acting and writing, but thanks to the amount of gore displayed in that show, I am not willing to even give it a try. I like the fact that I can sit down with my boys and watch Doctor Who. And I don't want that to change. I'm all for darker storylines in terms of psychology, but if it involves an excessive amount of gore on screen, then I don't want it.
