I have to say, I can't agree with all of the praise in this list. Personally I thought the 'Day/Time' soundtrack was very disappointing, with over half being either filler or tracks that weren't used for a reason.

Considering 'The Christmas Invasion' will always remain my favourite Christmas Special, it's easy to figure out which one I'm voting for.

@The Finn, Agent of SPECTRE @ahunter8056 @NumberNine @The_Connosaurus Certainly. As does how much they can take of what they deem to be a good thing. 

Personally I never had a problem with Rose returning, and I'm glad that her story wasn't permanently over in Series 2. And I hope that when Clara does go, that she reappears at least more than once.

Ooh, this is a toughie. Both are good episodes. However I think I'll vote 'Voyage'.

I would definitely put 'The Christmas Invasion' in the "Christmassy Christmas Special" category. We have presents, a Christmas tree, Santas, Christmas shopping, Christmas dinner, snow. In my opinion it's the most Christmas-like Christmas Special of them all. It has all the elements of a normal Christmas, which is one of the many things I love about it.

Voyage Of The Damned, easily. The Next Doctor was boring at most times, whilst 'Voyage' has one of The Doctor's greatest speeches ever in.

@JacobHaggerty @alonsys wants Clara to be in Series 9! @ahunter8056 Ah, but Moffat is a fan, who also happens to already be in that field. Alonsys appears to be commenting on the fans on the internet who are just fans, and not script writers.

@DWISCOOL100 Yes. Personally I think it's a good episode. The only negatives imo is both the writing and acting of Angie and Artie, and the Cyber Planner having emotions, despite the whole point of the Cybermen being entirely emotionless, and also the muteness of the Cybermen themselves. All that aside, it's a good episode with brilliant acting from Matt Smith.

I wouldn't mind another episode from him. Both of his episodes were good in my opinion, neither being one of the best, but nevertheless still good episodes.

I agree with these, with the strong exception of a "gutsy kid". No, just no. There should never be a child companion. It just wouldn't work. The life of a companion is a dangerous one, and a child simply wouldn't be able to survive. Adric is a prime example, though it's debatable whether or not he counts as a teenage companion. I always saw him as a stroppy and immature adult, despite his character being an intelligent alien teenager. Children tend to be bad enough as a one-off, so a full time child companion would be awful.

See, Moffat's idea of how it should be is different from my idea. Personally, I don't want it to be a realistic version. I want them to be best friends, able to get on instead of constantly clashing. If they take it even further in Series 9, it makes me wonder why Clara bothers to come onboard the TARDIS anymore to constant snide insults and moral clashes.

Also, with the BBC's secrecy this year, I'm not entirely sure whether or not DWM will even know whether Jenna Coleman will be a part of Series 9 or not. Not only that, but the next issue preview text has most likely been deliberately chosen purely for the purpose of fan speculation and unpredictability.

Although it seems that Jenna Coleman "reflecting on her time as Clara Oswald" infers that she's leaving, it does not necessarily mean so. It could just be that it's an interview about her time (so far) on the show. Doesn't mean it's the end. I really hope it isn't!

Being unpredictable is good, but you can do that without making the character too cold to be the hero. At times I feel they just went too far. Thankfully they corrected that later on.

1 week, 4 days ago on Capaldi Needed to “Slap the audience awake” – Moffat

Reply

I agree with most of these, but not all. For a start I completely agree with Amy's parents and Rory's dad. It was entirely nonsensical as to why Amy's parents never appeared again. Rory's dad less so, but why was he not seen at the wedding? I don't agree with the moving away from Leadworth thing being an unexplained plot point. What's so bad about London? Leadworth was a boring little village. 

As for the "duties abandoned", I just assumed that Clara just got sick of those irritating kids and moved away from them. That's my preferable explanation anyhow. :P

Paradigm no more, they were just discontinued because obviously Moffat finally came to his senses and realised just how truly awful the new design was. Origins of the faces, yeah, I'm still waiting for the plan RTD had that Moffat said he'd use. A couple of lines pondering having seen his new face before is not enough. Courtney who, why does that need explaining? She's just a kid who had a couple of trips aboard the TARDIS, that's all. And I agree with all of the unanswered.

I don't understand why everybody in the comments would be freaking out if it were a passionate kiss. I'm not saying I think it is needed, but I'm not against it either. It's not as though there hasn't been a centuries old age gap anytime The Doctor has been kissed by a woman in the past.

I just don't understand the love for 'The Girl Who Waited'. Personally I find it quite a boring episode. Plus to me it makes no sense why aged Amy doesn't want young Amy to be saved, and why Rory finds it so difficult to choose between them. Young Amy is the incredibly obvious choice.

Easy vote, Clara companion all series. Preferably beyond that as well, but we all know that's not likely to happen. It would just be bad to have her leave mid series. The companion should stay consistent throughout a series, rather than a change midway through.

Oh, how I've missed W&W. That War Doctor animation is brilliant. For once an animation that isn't ruined by a voice that sounds nothing like the person being portrayed. That Guardians of The Galaxy poster is wonderful as well.

I am honestly not bothered one way or the other. Not really bothered about the character. She was far better in 'Death In Heaven', but she was utterly pointless in 'The Day Of The Doctor' and didn't add anything. So I wouldn't mind seeing her back, but I'm not fussed if she never returns.

I'll be honest, I think this review is far, FAR too generous. The majority of the tracks on Disk 1 are lackluster, and there is a reason for why they weren't used. In fact I'd only bother playing Disk 1 from Track 18 onwards. Disk 2 is decent, but is best enjoyed from Track 36 onwards. Overall I'd give this soundtrack 5/10. The first soundtrack I've bought, and I'm sort of regretting the £12 I spent on it.
