"The Doctor. Doctor. Funnn."
@BollingerKnickers @Djornad @yoshfiction @Clara Laurinda @The Administrator @TARDlSkey I just hate this agenda that we have to like the show no matter what. No it doesn't work like that. However, the non stop arguing needs to stop because it doesn't take us anywhere good. Yes by all means express your frustration and problems, but know when to stop.

@yoshfiction @Djornad @Clara Laurinda @BollingerKnickers @The Administrator @TARDlSkey "And at that point, instead of actually dealing with it we get melodramatic moments with people leaving forever"
:P that part made me laugh so hard, coz it's so true! Personally, I think it's ok to express your frustration, but we can't expect others to really understand how we feel towards the show right now, so all that NONstop arguing back and forth has to stop, IMO. Why? Because it's not healthy and mature. We should be better than that. It's ok to discuss things a bit, but we should know when enough is enough and when to stop. Civility is the key. I know it's not always easy, but we have to try. Yes, I don't like the show right now, but others apparently do, so let them have their fun. But also please accept that some of us are not enjoying it and have a right to express why. Both sides just need to use some tact.

@The Administrator @stargazer0118 @Scribey He may say he's not a hero but he acts like one. Big difference. But I'm not counting anything 12 says because to me he doesn't act like the Doctor I know.

@TARDlSkey @stargazer0118 @BollingerKnickers I don't. The Master kills/wants to conquer. The Doctor saves and appreciates the universe. One coin, two different sides.
@BollingerKnickers You can rewatch old episodes from your favorite Doctors to get your Whovian fix. In fact, that's what I'm gonna do!

@BollingerKnickers It's ok, there is nothing wrong with you. Seriously. We don't have to like everything, plus there is so much to watch on TV these days. :)
@yoshfiction @stargazer0118 @The Administrator @Scribey To me the Doctor is the biggest hero there is. I mean, he saves civilations, planets and the universe so often there really is not other way for me to think. But he can be modest sometimes, though he's mostly arrogant because he knows he's truly brilliant, a genius! :P

@Mark McCullough @TardisBoy I don't think we are meant too look to much into it more than that. I just take it at face value. This show is like that, you don't get all the answers, you just focus on the bigger picture, lol. In this case I don't care if there is proof or not, I was very entertained and moved by the rest of it.
@The Administrator @stargazer0118 @Scribey Actually the Doctor can be many things, including a hero, which he clearly has been (if you haven't noticed it is your problem). He's even been sort of the villain in some stories, but to me he's always been a good man with a strong sense of justice and wonder for all life and the universe.
The Doctor has also changed so much since the Time War, so to compare him with 1 doesn't make a lot of sense really. Much less with 6. I think the Doctor is supposed to grow and learn from his mistakes. I don't see much of that with 12, who seems to have lost all his compassion and even his fondess for the human race.
@Gustaff @stargazer0118 @Scribey I resent Eccleston for his attitude towards the show, but I still like 9 a lot. I haven't seen much of 3, but he is alright, not one of my faves but I can see why some love him. 12 I never liked at all.

@Gustaff @stargazer0118 @BollingerKnickers very, veeery far in between that I can barely notice.
@Scribey @stargazer0118 I understand that, but it's not interesting or entertaining for me to watch. It only puts me off the character because that's all he is. If he was the villain of the story, then I could probably care, but he's not.
@Gustaff @Scribey @stargazer0118 9 had his bad moments, but I still found him relatable, funny and fascinating to watch. 3 isn't a fav, but he was still entertaining to watch. The problem with 12 is probably that they mix only the bad character traits from previous versions put into one.
@Scribey @stargazer0118 So they wanted me to hate the 12th Doctor? I thought I was supposed to root for him and to be glued to the screen in joy watching my fav character and his adventures.
@BollingerKnickers @stargazer0118 I still don't like a lot of Moffat's writing/era, but I think Matt was the saving grace and what kept me watching. Can't say the same of 12/Capaldi and Clara/Jenna. They just don't do it for me at all so far.
I also think that each Doctor is basically a new character/person. Yes I know he's supposed to be the same man, but it doesn't really feel that way to me most of the time. 12 is especially really jarring in contrast that I can't accept him as the Doctor. He's simply too cold for me. The Master would be proud, and that is not a good thing at all.
The 12th Doctor really makes me appreciate 11/Matt Smith much more. I miss his warm face and enthusiasm. Never thought I'd say that.
@KingoftheOod4450 I read a Moffat interview in which he said Jenna's really fast talking was the reason he cast her in the role because she was able to keep up to Matt's also fast talking. I agree, it takes away from her acting and character's believability.

@Amy is uniting the Earth Kingdom! The tragedy is the Moffat cheapened up the RTD era with that retcon. And he continues to do so with the large influence that Clara continues to have on the Doctor's life. I"ve simply had enough of this annoying character and can't wait until she disappears forever.
@yoshfiction @LGwalchmai95 @BollingerKnickers I understand. I feel the same way. Don't feel bad for feeling this way. At least there is the hope that (if the show doesn't end any time soon) there will be a new showrunner some day who can bring new and fresh ideas. :)

@yoshfiction @BollingerKnickers No, you are not alone. There are many fans who aren't happy enough (or downright hate it) with the current show.
@BollingerKnickers @yoshfiction Same. I just don't like the main characters anymore. Don't care about them at all. In fact, Clara and the Doctor, and Danny annoy me quite a lot.

@Warisfiller I also hated her intervention in Day of the Doctor when she cried and told the Doctor he couldn't do that (killing them all) because that's not who he is. Come on, I'm sure he knew it was his last option. But of course she just HAD to be the smartest and most sensible person in the room. To me this important day should have been his own decision and his own conclusion. Clara is just.. a really bad fanfic character to me.
2 days, 6 hours ago on ‘Doctor Who’ or ‘Clara Who?’
Forgot to say, she's just too much and not in a good way, IMO.
2 days, 9 hours ago on ‘Doctor Who’ or ‘Clara Who?’
Good argumentation, but I still feel she overshadows not only 12, but the whole Doctor Who show. And despite her increased character developments, I still find her a weak, uninteresting and annoying character. To each their own.
@Gustaff @stargazer0118 You make some good points. Yeah saw the 'schedule' and laughed at it. They've said that before and not much happened. Right now WB are giddy with The Flash's success on TV and want to take advantage of that hype, but who wants to see another actor in the role so soon? Not me. Hate it when they do that. Also, the WB usually put lots of restrictions on the TV show in order to not 'clash' with their own ideas for the movie franchise.

It sounds like the Cybermen will be the main villains in the finale..
@Gustaff At least DW is run by fans.. WB is run by a corporation who only care about profits. I'm not ok with the idea of having a new actor as the Flash for the movies. Why do they have to ruin the good they already have with the new and very successful TV show? Sigh.

@Scootersfood has 66 Seconds to live... I think that if Who continues in the far future (Ten or more years), I see lots of potential for Rose and Tennant as Tentoo to return to the show, in which we could see what happened to them. Sort of like Sarah Jane in School Reunion.

@SonicTheHedgehogRules The Cybermen really need a great story.. Honestly, I'm more curious than excited. Really don't know what to expect. Hopefully Not another time loop/paradox/re-writing history type of story please..
@supermoff is now in 2D! @stargazer0118 yeah, I just always hope it's a decent, fairly enjoyable episode. It's a reasonable starting point, IMO.
If you overhype the finale (or any episode) is your fault. We should know by now that it's best to have expectations on check. That way it's more surprising if you end up loving it.

@Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! As long as it's left vague. I liked the way The Impossible Planet did it.
@Mark McCullough He's the Master! Or the Rani. Or River Song or Romana?

@Djornad Going by his reactions, it seems to me the 12th Doctor's anger doesn't burn hot like the other NW Doctors, especially 9 and 10. He is pretty cold overall.
And Clara's characterization has been very uneven since S7. Don't see that changing much. The last couple of series have been very plot driven.
