@IanOTimelord It seems only robots get to go to the promised land. Seeing as we know Missy will have her main appearance in the cybermen episode, I'm guessing the cybermen need robot parts

@SteviePenny Well, that's probably because the BBC vfx department was shut down last year, so now they've got independent vfx comapanies working on the show, just like with Game of Thrones

How about we make it even better by having both Matt Smith AND David Tennant in series 5? Seeing as Moffat was talking about the first Tennant we meet is at the end of his life, we could also have Smith

@RobertLythgoe @giddir  Actually, I think that most of Moffat's scripts look very good on paper and are very good reads. If you just think about the concepts and ideas and plots we see, they're actually really cool and amazing ideas. But scripts never turn out as you imagine them while writing them, and not everything works as well on screen as it did on paper. So I think that the directors and producers are to blame when something doesn't look quite right, not Moffat. His ideas are wonderful.

@lukashcartoon  I think that a lot of the idea and stories they write look really good on paper when writing them, but then turns out to not be as good when shown on TV, or even, they are really good stories, but the directors don't make the stories into great episodes. Things like the Mel thing probably looked really good on paper, but didn't work as well when transcribed to TV

@DavidSJH But the story arcs is what makes Moffat amazing? Also, people need to understand that the scripts might look great when writing and reading them, but then not turn out that great when produced. That's not the writers fault. That's the director.

Series 5 was the perfect series of Doctor Who. It had an amazing story that was intriguing, yet not too complicated. At the end I felt very satisfied with the resolution, and there were so many questions still unanswered that it really felt like the beginning of an amazingly epic adventure. Pandorica cliffhanger was top notch as well.

The Big Bang for me. I just felt so completely satisfied with that ending. Series 5 had an amazing resolution, and The Doctor, Amy and Rory all standing there in suits and dresses after the wedding, going on a new adventure. But even though it was the resolution, you still felt like there was a grand, epic adventure in front of them, cause this was just the beginning

I don't actually like Silence in the Library anymore. I used to, but after getting used to the amazing production quality of series 5, SinL just felt so chaotic. There's so much noise and fast music and screaming and shouting. It's become near unwatchable for me

I just assumed that, seeing as Clara didn't see Capaldi in the time scar, the tissue was the scar of his first regeneration cycle, and that it was left on Trenzalore when he regenerated.

@VortexDan  Hahah, you're saying that like RTD's run had any plot at all, and not just chaos with lots of shouting and running and fast paced electronic music, as well as awkward acting and weird plot developments. Let's not even mention the vfx. (I'm exaggerating here, of course I love several RTD episodes, I just prefer series 5)

@DW_girl @Amy the Consulting Key Ring @BiBernardus  I definitely think that the time scar we saw in Name of The Doctor is the scar of his first regeneration cycle, that he left there when regenerating. That explains why, when Clara entered his time line, we only saw previous incarnations. The people of Trenzalore found the time scar he left behind, thinking he died to save them, and buried him. Don't know about the TARDIS, though

@Baker Street  I like Time/Flesh, simply because it was the first episode Matt Smith filmed after the end of time. So, really, we're seeing him step right into the role, in the middle of the plot.

@Ivegotkidneys  This is a great list, and I agree. Personally I'd put series 5 on top, 'cause it was perfet Who for me, but I love series 1 as well. I'm so glad you picked up on the fact that 6A is actually pretty good (remember all the excitement and wild theories and general activity there was among Whovians at the time? GREAT), but then they ruined it with a really bad 6B.

I have always wanted a surprise regeneration, and it doesn't even have to be like that. They can still announce that Capadli is leaving in a year and tell us who's taking over, and then surprise us by having him regenerate much earlier than announced. The best would be if we didn't know who the new actor was though. It would be so cool

Gave it at 7/10. I'll admit the ending is quite beautiful and tragic (EXCEPT FOR THAT ONE SHOT WHERE THEY ARE STANDING ON A SPINNING FLOORBOARD OMG THAT'S SO STUPID) *inhale* *sigh*.. but I wouldn't say the episode is outstanding, it's just good.

I love this episode, because this was the first episode of Series 5 that was filmed, so really it's Matt's first performance as the Doctor, which is also very visible in that his look in this episode is way more similar to what he looked like in The End of Time than in The Eleventh Hour
