I like TEOT, but once again my vote goes for The Christmas Invasion.
1 day, 15 hours ago on Festive Face-Off: The End of Time vs The Christmas Invasion
Steven Moffat, I 100% agree. Doctor Who being scary is what makes the show great. Also, I saw no complaints for stories like the Empty Child, The Waters of Mars or Listen, so I think I'll take the Mail's report with a pinch of salt and a jelly baby =D.

Despite it having flaws, I enjoy the End of Time. I love the fact that Ten, the most human Doctor, has the most realistic and human response to regeneration (although I wish Russel had written it in a way which didn't make Eleven seem like an impostor, which wasn't helping the backlash against Matt). I love the Ten/Wilf dynamic, I love Donna and it was great to see the Time Lords again. However, the 'Master Race' was perhaps too OTT and the Master became too much like a Spider Man villain (I love Spider Man but there's a time and a place). I also don't like Ten's last words, though Matt's entrance was great. Overall though, I still like it as a solid story, though I don't watch it much due to its bleak tone (Part One especially).

@Antee991166 @Rorschach's_Journal_of_Impossible_Things If he can redeem himself like Steve Thompson than yes. Though if he has a third chance and ruins it than absolutely not.

Sorry Moffat, but the reason I don't like this story is the boring characters and fairy dust, not the science. I'm still up for Frank CB to return, any writer is welcome back for me =)
I have to go with The Next Doctor. It's cheesy and silly, but it is an enjoyable Cyberman story. The only bad bit is the way they were defeated. Voyage is good but it gets quite melodramatic towards the end and feels a bit overlong, but the part with Wilf was just brilliant!

@KingOfTheInterWebs is Apprentice Number 1 @Rorschach's_Journal_of_Impossible_Things There was a Tenth Doctor novel called Forever Autumn which introduced the Carrionite's enemies, the Herkoven. Maybe both species have escaped the Deep Darkness and are planning to use the Earth as a source of their magic...
4 days, 6 hours ago on First Series 9 Title Revealed
Ooooh. So, three things 1) Carrionite return/a magic episode? 2) Sounds like a new companion debut and 3) I'm sad because we're going to have to wait roughly 8 months to watch it!
4 days, 7 hours ago on First Series 9 Title Revealed
I'm going for the Christmas Invasion. The Runaway Bride is too inconsistent in its tone and has the most over the top villain ever. The Racnoss makes Soldeed look subtle! I still enjoy it on a guilty pleasure level though.
5 days, 1 hour ago on Festive Face-Off: The Christmas Invasion vs The Runaway Bride
@VictorWong1 Oooh, definitely Alan Moore. You can see I like him, and he started off writing for Doctor Who Magazine. A script from him would be great =D
5 days, 6 hours ago on No Series 9 Story for Neil Gaiman
@Gustaff I don't actually mind Nightmare in Silver. It's not that good but I find it an alright Cyberman story. I just think there was too much hype going in for people to be truly impressed.
Oooh, that sucks. But still, good luck with whatever you do Neil!
It would have been great to see Jack in A Good Man Goes to War, as apparently he was going to be beheaded and become the Face of Boe. That would have been fantastic!

They should both return for the 10th (or 15th) anniversary. They are both awesome! =D!

I feel like the only person who doesn't like Pyramids of Mars- it's very dull in my eyes, and Sutekh does nothing but be Cliched Villain Number 1. Love Remembrance, Inferno, Tomb and Planet of the Spiders though, all are amazing.
Has someone considered what the children themselves think? They are capable of expressing opinions =)
1 week, 2 days ago on Moffat on Criticisms that Doctor Who Is Too Dark
Still no sign of crabs or Sleepers- the main villain appears to be the Kantrofarri. WHAT IS GOING ON MOFFAT!?!?!?!!?!??!?!
1 week, 3 days ago on Last Christmas New Trailer
The Kantrofarri look like dried up Silurians O_O!
1 week, 5 days ago on New Last Christmas Details & Big Clara Clue?
@divya12 My personal theory is that the Sleepers are the Mara, the Kantofarri are creatures which it has controlled and the Dream Crabs are creatures within the mind who kill people. But seeing how all my other theories were wrong, I highly doubt this one will be right! =D
Now THOSE are cool aliens. So what's all this about Sleepers and Dream Crabs? Oh Moffat, you just have to raise the hype don't you? 15 days to go!
It's not a ratings flop at all. The amount of people watching television live is rarer now. Each episode is still watched by many and the show is now a global phenomenon. This series in particular has seen massive critical success and has had many people getting re-interested in the show. So by that evidence, it's not just a rating success, but a BBC phenomenon!

2 weeks, 2 days ago on Capaldi Teases Last Christmas & Clara’s Fate
Can't say I like the Girl Who Waited (one of the most needlessly complicated and contrived stories of all time) but I am glad to see the God Complex here. The underlying themes and characters are, in my opinion, the most complex and mature the series has ever done.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Doctor Who: Fifty-One Favourites (Part 2)
Sorry Clara, but I think Death in Heaven was the perfect ending. I'm not a fan of the half series split, it affected Series 7 for me. So I think a new companion is in order.
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Clara, or a New Companion for Series 9?
@The Lazy Cat is Hanging Out With Jenna Coleman Hopefully all the Moffat era supporting characters will return Stolen Earth style one day. The Paternoster Gang, Canton, Robin Hood, Rusty, Sai, Saibra, Perkins, UNIT and River Song.
3 weeks ago on Frank Skinner Up for Doctor Who Return
Gangster Santa? Dream crabs? It's like if Moffat wrote random words on slips of paper and pulled them out of a hat. "Gangster... Santa!" "Dream... Crabs!". That's not a criticism, in fact this has raised my hopes and the Sleepers sound awesome. Why can't it be Christmas?
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Frost on “Gangster” Santa, Last Christmas Monsters
Amy was great and truly changed as a character. My favourite Amy moment is either the goodbye scene from the God Complex, Amy arguing with the Doctor in A Town Called Mercy (Yeah, I love Toby Whithouse) and her final scene, which is still beautiful no matter how bad the rest of the episode was. (I don't hate the Angels take Manhatten, but I found it underwhelming. But Amy's final moments were outstanding).

I also give major props to Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead, The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon, The Silurians, Ghost Light, The Five Doctors, The Fires of Pompeii, Listen and Father's Day.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Doctor Who: Fifty-One Favourites (Part 1)
My absoloute favourite Who stories of all time are:
1) The God Complex
3) Genesis of the Daleks
4) Human Nature/Family of Blood & Vincent and the Doctor
5) City of Death
7) School Reunion
8) Remembrance of the Daleks
10) The Waters of Mars
11) Dark Water/Death in Heaven
My list is: Moffat (Opener and two part finale), Tregenna (One episode I assume), Gatiss (Jane Austen?) and Whithouse, Chibnall, Gaiman and Mathieson with two each (if we are going for a thirteen episode run).

Journey's End so high?! Don't get me wrong I love that story but given the comments on the ranking it wasn't very popular to most people.

Oooh, I like this. Very ominous.

@supermoff Pretty much mine, as anyone's welcome back for me. I would also like Chris Chibnall (I can't be the only one who likes Dinosaurs on a Spaceship) and Paul Cornell (Has Moffat considered inviting him, or is he too busy?).

@#SaveConstantine @Rorschach's_Journal_of_Impossible_Things And it has Capaldi in it. First thing I saw him in actually.
@#SaveConstantine @Rorschach's_Journal_of_Impossible_Things I've seen Children of Earth which was superb. I've heard mixed things about series 1, but I think I'll like it as it has Captain Jack in it.
I really need to get round to watching Torchwood at some point... off topic. Anyway, on topic. It's great to have female writers, and I just love new writers in general. Jamie Mathieson wrote two of the most imaginative scripts in recent memory, so let's have him back too.
While I have memories of Tennant, it wasn't until Matt Smith until I started to watch every week. Maybe it was the bigger emphasis on story arcs, or maybe just the Doctor, but the Eleventh turned me from a casual viewer to a hard core fan, so it's Matt for me.

@bringmeknitting @Rorschach's_Journal_of_Impossible_Things I don't really like it. Sorry. But I understand why it's popular =)
1 month ago on Finale Face-Off (Series 1-8)
Series 8 is easily the best finale. I would rank them (controversially)...
1) Dark Water/Death in Heaven
2) The Name of the Doctor
3) The Stolen Earth/Journey's End (yes I like it)
4) The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords
5) The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang
6) Army of Ghosts/Doomsday
7) The Wedding of River Song
8) Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways
On the plus side, we could have a new and interesting companion(s) in a year's time.
On the down side, we'd lose Clara, which is a shame.
Either way I'll be fine =)
1 month ago on Moffat Can’t Confirm Jenna Coleman for Series 9
Top Moffat stories for me are-
2)Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead
4)The Day of the Doctor
5) The Impossible Astronaught/Day of the Moon
6) The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances
8)The Eleventh Hour
9)The Name of the Doctor
10) A Good Man Goes to War
1 month ago on Moffat’s Best Monsters, Tricks & Stories (So Far)
Sublime: Dark Water/Death in Heaven (12/10), Listen (10/10), Mummy on the Orient Express (9/10)
Great: Robot of Sherwood (8/10), Flatline (8/10), Time Heist (8/10), Deep Breath (8/10)
Good: The Caretaker(7/10), Kill the Moon (6/10), Into the Dalek (6/10)
Mediocre: In the Forest of the Night (3/10) So, pretty good for Twelve. Here's to Christmas!

Well I agree. Series 8 is a gigantic triumph.

Excellent article. Until Dark Water this was the only finale I could give a 10 to. Re-watching it recently really makes me appreciate this story as a fantastic payoff to the series. This is still one of my favourites.
1 month ago on New Who Finales in Perspective: Series 7
I stand by the fact that the first 20 minutes of this story are absolutely brilliant. It goes pear shaped though near the end though, with Moffat forgoing the character driven narrative and going for story instead. I still find this a good conclusion to Series 6 though. My finale rankings so far are- 1) Series 4
2) Series 3
3) Series 5
4) Series 6
5) Series 2
6) Series 1
1 month, 1 week ago on New Who Finales in Perspective: Series 6
I would love either a companion from the past (Victorian, medieval, Greek etc), an alien, or both. The only New Who companion who isn't from modern day Earth is Captain Jack, who is awesome. As cool as the New Who companions are, I miss people like Leela or Jamie or Romana. Alternatively, have K9 back. Just imagine Capaldi with him... =D
