The shows we love shall touch our hearts for years. Doctor Who will touch my heart for a lifetime.
@ Notsosmartguy the dalek of Jersey Indeed, science fiction flourishes on such open minded concepts, and by no such exception Doctor Who. There was that lovely line in "The Doctor Dances" which kind of confirms it.
"So many species, so little time."
"What, that's what we do when we get out there? That's our mission? We seek new life and..."

@TheOncomingHurricane @supermoff 1999 is an eon ago! DX I feel so old myself...
@MrJimiTheFish @supermoff @The_Eternal_Dalek It's all right, we often get confused ourselves with all our customs :P
@MrJimiTheFish @The_Eternal_Dalek Tea is the name of a meal in the UK, which we have in the evening :P
@Dalekium @TheNightmareChild is LISTENing! I don't think you have a vote ;)
@The_Eternal_Dalek Ok, tonsil tennis is now my favourite euphemism for kissing XD

Borrowing from a quote from a very old and very
" I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are
irrelevant; it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you
This applies heavily in Doctor Who, as the ethos of the Doctor. He
doesn't care what gender, or race, or species, or sexuality, or age, or
anything you are, he just cares about how good you are as a person and how well
you respect others.
The people making these inane complaints, hence, do not understand the
central message of the main character. If only more people did...
@Dalekium @TheBigBadWolf Thank you for a supportive and mature article on a tentative subject :)
@Deus_Ex_Machina Well, as positive pro-LGBT themes only seek to help and give confidence to LGBT individuals and give them support in an already overly homophobic world, and all anti-LGBT themes will accomplish is encouraging greater hate and misunderstanding...I know which one I'd prefer in my media.
@ Notsosmartguy the dalek of Jersey @Planet of the Deaf @supermoff @Chris502 Anarchy. You've started anarchy :P
@TheOncomingHurricane @supermoff @MrJimiTheFish @MeglosProductions Me too. I'm not complaining though :P
@MrJimiTheFish @MeglosProductions That's why a good kiss leaves you breathless ;)

@BeyondThePolice Well it had a lot of purpose in said pseudo-battle, as it was really an oxygen exchange.
@ Notsosmartguy the dalek of Jersey @supermoff @Chris502 Oh dear XD
@Chris502 Well Clara was naked for a lot of Time of the Doctor, but she had holographic clothes ;)
@TheOncomingHurricane @Chris502 ...that does sound very much like Matt.
@Planet of the Deaf @Chris502 Kiss Godzilla, and there won't be any of you left at all!
@Planet of the Deaf @TARDlSkey That could have probably been rephrased a lot better.
@Planet of the Deaf @TARDlSkey Indeed, it's well deserved and I hope he has fun stoking it all the home.
@TheOncomingHurricane @ Notsosmartguy the dalek of Jersey @Planet of the Deaf *...stepping back slowly...*
@ Notsosmartguy the dalek of Jersey @TheOncomingHurricane @Planet of the Deaf Or a guy having his eyes torn out, or a guy impaled by Big Ben, but nooooo, a kiss...I mean, what?
@Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! Poor Helen Raynor, she broke down on the phone with Russell because of all the hate. It's a shame, I loved her stories :(
@TARDlSkey @supermoff Indeed, but that's sadly a large amount of humanity. :/ The sheer cruelty is why I stay away from Facebook and Youtube now, and just stick to the kinder and more decent DWTV community. :)
@Antee991166 There were complaints about Captain Jack back in the day, about how the BBC were pushing a "gay agenda" and that crap (spewed by the Mail, no surprises there). The same factions seem to be back again now.
@TARDlSkey I bet he'd love that. I don't remember where, but I remember reading something that the negativity really affects him, so it'd be wonderful to show that there are loads of people - a thumping majority - who are positive about his work, and that he is loved :)
@Master Michael Moon Great to see more Paternoster enthusiasm :)
@Ivegotkidneys is in a Dalek @TARDlSkey @TheOncomingHurricane Well, Vastra is an intelligent lizard woman from the dawn of time, a dog is...a dog. It's not much of a comparison.
@Ivegotkidneys is in a Dalek The kiss between two women was a first for Doctor Who, but a kiss between a women and a lizard was a first for...anything, I think :P I liked it, it shows love can exist between anyone, no matter their backgrounds or species :)
I hope that loud minority in tumblr gets a good read of this!
"The reason why Jenny, Vastra and Captain Jack are so good at representing LGBT+ people is because their sexuality is portrayed as being one aspect of their lives without it ever being sidelined or used as a storyline"
That. That times two million. That times two million to the power of two million. That is the point missed by so many, that they're not defined by their sexuality; they're fundamentally rich, well developed, and truly wonderful characters, with their sexuality being just one of their many characteristics. They're not novelties, or cliches of the concept, but honest and great characters at heart.
To a bi guy, it makes me proud of Doctor Who for being so progressive, and the whole "Moffat is a homophobe" insult is, to me, the greatest and harshest misconception about the man.
Brilliant article, and very mature responses to these inane comments, which make me lose a bit of faith in humanity every time I read them. I mean..."the BBC seem to want to become a porn channel and are slowly edging into it"...I bet the person who said that rubbish said nothing when Amy tried to have sex with the Doctor at the end of Flesh & Stone. It's a lot of double-standards!
@Temporal Tomato You make a good point. Capaldi - and McCoy - did make one hell of an entrace :P

Moffat is amazingly capable of making us care about characters no matter how short their appearance :) With the dinosaur, it was that wonderful "I am alone" translation which really got us attached to the poor thing :(

Quite, but it should make for some incredible television moments in the future :D
Well let's hope she lasts as long as possible then :P series 9 or bust :D
That broom speech was also an interesting philosophical idea that perfectly suited the concepts of the episode. And reminded me heavily of Trigger's broom in Only Fools and Horses :P
More like great to phenomenal :P
Plus Jenna...she gave one hell of an incredible performance. She has always given a great performance but this was her best one to date! :D
Great review :) Loved the episode , and, on deeper reflection, the episode is full of imagery akin to regeneration. Definitely one of Moffat's more intricately designed and written episodes.
Although I don't see Claras increased characterisation as a weakness but a sheer strength, and the greatest strength of the episode. It could have been a weakness, as it could have distracted from Capaldi,'s Doctor, but the running time of this episode allowed wonderful development for every character!
Gorgeous posters! :D
