@not764 please dont tell people that they have no business watching the show just because the way they view it differs from the way you view it. you are not god and its extremely patronizing. also,there are so many arguments against a female doctor clearly people dont not like the idea just because they dont like the idea. they dont like the idea because in their opinion, based on what theyve seen, it will damage the show more than it will enhance it.

just because someone doesnt want a female doctor does NOT make them sexist in any way. to be honest, the doctor is my favorite fictional character and i associate and relate to him more than any other character. as a guy, i am obviously going to relate more to male characters so its understandable that i wouldnt want the change. ofcourse, the show isnt made just for me, and women deserve role models on tv. so i do understand where people who want the change are coming from. but my enjoyment of the show would, i thinkm be lessened so obviously im not going to advocate the change. also, as much as i love moffatt and the other writers, i dont have faith in them to not turn the doctor into a flirt machine.

agreed. i loved Gomez's performance, and i loved how she wanted her friend back. but death in heaven didnt really bring the master back. where was the power lust? where was the sense of control? Gomez is an extension of Simm's master. i want a master who isnt bananas and does what he does because he genuinely thinks him being in power would be a positive force for good in the universe. i didnt mind the master being a woman, but i did feel like some of the parallels between the enmity of ages became lost or atleast harder to see. but i desperately hope that they never make the same move with the doctor. i know the show is about change, but i would feel the loss of the doctor's gender. as a guy, i find it easier to sympathise and relate to male characters. ofcourse, the show isnt made for me, but the doctor is a character i have grown accustomed to and while i would enjoy watching a female doctor, it is such a big part of my life and the character is one which i feel i relate to so much that a gender change would be very difficult for me to accept. certainly, the doctor is my favorite fictional character. ofcourse, girls should have female role models aswell, and they get those. in the form of companions. there is also an element that guys in the modern world are encouraged to be macho and  violent, and the doctor acts as a counterpoint for those forces. if the doctor remained the same, merely female, i feel like the character would be less powerful in terms of how it effects people's lives because violence isnt really something encouraged in girls anyway. ofcourse, there is the element that it would be representative of the transgender community which are underrepresented by television, but i feel as though the regeneration process would be an oversimplification of the problems that transgender people face in the world and i dont have faith that the writers would be able to do justice to this in the character development. after all, Missy's change wasnt even mentioned which seems very strange to me. i also doubt that the writing team would be able to do the change without turning the doctor into a river-esque flirt machine.

@Romanadvoratrelundar is looking for Gallifrey @YaelMoise @LGwalchmai95 you can win, you just need a happy medium between  being intelligent and resourceful and imprinting youself on the doctors timeline and being the only character to meet the doctor pre unearthly child...twice! also, does Clara really have a lot of development? all i can think is that she goes from wanting to travel with the doctor to really wanting to travel with him. and she gets briefly upset when Danny dies. is there anything else?

please can she not stay to series 9???? she was one of my few criticisms of series 8 and i dont know if i can handle another series of her. in RTD, we always had atleast 1 main character change per series. now i prefer Moffatt over RTD, but i really dont like how long characters have been staying. atleast with Amy and Rory there were two of them and River which justified the extended development. but Clara is really starting to annoy me and i know that a lot of people really love her but not me please can she leave.

i think they should have left Clara with the beautiful ending in death in heaven. she doesnt deserve a happy ending after the way she treated Danny, and i dont think she really needs one. also shes one of my least favorite companions so obviously i want her to leave. but, if shes staying after xmas, i think they should kill her off in episode 4. just imagine suddenly killing off a main character mid series with no build up or anything. that would create a sense of threat and consequence that Moffat seems to be aiming for. also itd be especially tragic after she repeatedly almost left the doctor but couldnt do it.

@Strontium i agree with almost everything you say except that this year has been my favorite musicwise. other series have had overpowering music which tells you what to think whereas now its more subtle and allows good storytelling to do its work. also Capaldi's theme is my favorite of any other theme it feels really heroic and suits 12 very well.

the problem is this story lacks any real tension or development. i think we all loved seeing the past doctors (though i wish we hadnt seen hartnell pre unearthly child as i felt it took away from his mystery). but the middle of the story is slow. i dont hate tha paternoster gang, but i dont like them especially. and i think enjoyment of this episode was hindered by that. i also dont really like Clara so thats another element. there were some fantastic visuals and ideas but they werent expanded upon nearly enough. we saw the doctor's grave! they could have had statues of past incarnations and a general homage to 50 years. instead we got a mediocre giant TARDIS. and the whispermen had so much potential but did nothing. River was ok, im really meh about her character though. iv said this before, but i think that this episode should have been a 2 parter and fused with jttcott and maybe even drs wife. this would have allowed the narrative time to breath and develop real tension. name of the doctor is a great character piece, with some cool multi doctor awesomeness. but as a narrative it fails to deliver imo.

i really liked this episode. it wasnt perfect, but theres never a dull moment as the pace is just so fast. my only complaint is that the silence were underused and as a 2 parter we could have really used the setting of all of time and had the silence as a proper, strong organisation. i quite like River, but this was for me her weakest episode. she just sort of flirts with the doctor and only has one serious moment when shes about to kill him. i really liked the reveal as i didnt see it coming, but i understand if you had worked it out itd be annoying. maybe we could have had more returning characters just to make the appearance of the tesselecta seem less important. also i love the chess scene and Gatiss is just pure class in the short time he is given.

i really feel like companions are staying too long. even if i liked Clara, id find that a new companion shakes things up and allows us to see a new side to the doctor. until Clara came along, all we had as a perspective on 11 was awe and series 7b really felt different and new because of Clara. i really hope that Clara doesnt stay into series 9 shes one of my least favorite companions and i wouldnt want my favorite companions to stay this long. also, she had a beautiful send off in death in heaven which ended her character perfectly. yes it was tragic, but after she lied to Danny and betrayed the doctor, it was really what she deserved.

@Second Doctor really?! you think it should just end?? in 2 years???? dr who has always changed and i dont see why it should end because a theme has concluded. the time war theme is pretty much gone arguably. should the show have ended there? the thing about dr who is its perhaps the only show which could literally go on indefinitely. with so many potential stories untouched, and so many directions to go in, why would anyone want it to actually end. in fact, i think dr who should go on as long as possible because the doctor, thematically, should never end. he has been stuck doing the same old thing, always running all his life. hes an addict. the tragedy of the doctor is that there is no end. and that is beautiful.

ummmmmm im really mixed on this. its a solid narrative and as with most 2 parters, imo, the best part was the first part. as i passionately dislike Rose (sorry!) I cant say that i enjoyed her blowing holes in the universe just to be with the doctor. but the fact that Rose is so divisive does, to me, suggest that shes interesting as a character. but i quite liked her ending in doomsday, even if i was desperately hoping shed be sucked into the void. but that was definitely destroyed by series 4. i think the cliffhanger where we see the daleks was beautifully shot and i remember being so excited to see what i assumed to be a dalek supreme. the dalek/cyber banter was on point. "this is not war this is pest control." yes can we have another showdown please??? im in the cyber camp, though i accept that tha parallel cybermen would have no chance against the daleks. the new ones would probably lose initally, but then upgrade. and then we'd be in for a battle of a lifetime. i could just imagine loads of daleks screaming trimuphantly that they were superior. then theyre beams stop working and a cyberman just says "upgrade in progress." the s$^t gets real.

really not a fan of the masters since Jacobi but i appreciate alot about their characters they just dont feel mastery to me. but the whole friendship thing in death in heaven seemed like a step in the right direction and to me the fact that they couldnt be friends was the saddest part of the episode. i wish they had acknowldged the cross-sex regeneration more. if they want to canonise it, atleast provide some sort of explanation instead of pretty much ignoring it. but i loved death in heaven and gave it a 10 so cant complain lol.  and while dark water is the better episode, Utopia's master reveal was so perfect i remember being like 10 and jumping around my friend's living room with excitement.

Amy and Rory are my favorite companions so im glad Amy wasnt killed by Rory in Pandorica opens. but, that was a beautiful death scene which was truly truly tragic for all involved. If Danny is upgraded, we sould be in a very similar position. perhaps this time Moffatt will go through with it?? i know a lot of people want Clara to stay, but i really feel like Dark Water saw her character peak. so killing her now, imo, would be 100% the right thing to do. PLEASE?!

@AB1992 there is absolutely nothing sexist about not wanting a female master and i would happily express my opinions about the new incarnation in the workplace. i love Gomez, but i feel that the decision to change his gender was wrong as Moffat doesnt (imo) write most of his female characters very interestingly, Amy Pond and early River Song being the exceptions. I also have trouble finding room for this regeneration within the show's canon, though i wont mind this if we get a decent explanation. i feel like the parallels are harder to see between the doctor and the master if they are different sexes and the dynamic between the characters has subsequently changed in a way that i dont like. does this view make me sexist? no.

@Kathrin Lily Franke @gunslinger19 ummm if unhinged perhaps, but the sheer level of insanity on the surface of Simms and Gomez kinda bores me. the best Simms master moment was that phone call with the doctor in Sound of Drums. the master ended up raging, but it was all complimented with a slow build up in which he was calm and collected, expertly manipulating the doctor's emotions and showing the amount of control he possessed by the fact that when the Master says run, the doctor must obey.

I really feel like the Charles Dance rumours damage Missy's reception because as great as she is, shes no Tywin Lannister lol. saying this, i think Dance would have essentially have been a very safe choice for the role and Gomez is definitely a bold choice if nothing else. really unhappy that shes stil unhinged though was hoping they might iron that out of the character atleast for a while.

@markdaventry @YaelMoise hopes Seb lives! @Exalos honestly, there are good arguments on a philosophical level in favor of there being a god of some sort. what created the universe? it must have been something. and a sentient force is as good an explanation as any other. whereas there are no arguments in favor of father christmas being real. i dont necessarily believe in a god, but an imaginary friend is generally accepted to be imaginary and a god is a far more serious concept with entirely different connotations. the idea that believers should be ridiculed is alsoi nonsense. your belief that there is no god is equally absurd. where did everything come from? whatever the answer, it is either a god or not a god and for it not to have been a god makes no sense. obviously for it to have been a god also makes no sense. but your attitude is intolerant and arrogant.

i really hope she starts calling herself mistress rather than Missy. that would make her seem more mastery to me and the deviation of sex kind of makes her feel like a new character anyway.

thats why i hope we see a regeneration from Simms to her to solidify her incarnation. the problem i have with Missy is, and Gomez is a wonderful actress, but shes everything that i dont want the Master to be. shes unhinged, cruel, over confident and most importantly, she doesnt have a very powerful persona. she may be in a position of power, but her responses to dialogue indicate that she can be manipulated which undermine what i think the master should be. i know that this is an accurate depiction of what the master has been, but i really thought the next Master might be an improvement with some real moral ambiguity, a truly powerful presence and strong parallels with the doctor. 

i hate to say it, but i really dont like newwho's masters. as characters in their own right, they are really good. but as Masters, they are let downs to me. still, im sure one day there will be a Master i can enjoy given that the show changes to much. 

also, i doubt that Missy is a proper Master regeneration. i suspect he stole someones body Tremas/ Movie style and that happened to be a woman's. it just seems unlikely that the Master would randomly regenerate into a woman naturally when it has never been seen  before in the history of the who.

@cburdette82 as a Brit, i have a good idea of your confrontation of issues on a 'night'ly basis. it just so happens that as our government has a nationalized tv broadcasting company (an idea i support completely) that we have to consider what we show to kids is something representative of the electorate rather than the whims of the market. i loved the episode, but its silly to suggest that the BBC should be showing television which is inaccessible to younger viewers which overtly undermine a parent's right to raise a their child in their own way. some parents may be upset because they wanted to introduce the concept of death to a child in their own way. i completely disagree with anyone who complained about this episode. but this is nothing to do with them being British and if they feel offended then they are right to complain. us British have no less of a culture which explores issues such as death or violence than any other nation. infact, we have one which does so more so than perhaps any other nation what with our nation's history of death and violence etc.

voted dr who, but GoT is just as good so kind of feel bad. theyre not really comparable but doctor who could really learn alot from GoT in terms of characterization. GoT characters are relatively simple but all the better as a result because it creates serious thematic focus that i often find doctor who lacks. also, GoT has a fantastic shock factor that doctor who cannot combat in any way. even as a book reader who knows whats about to happen GoT shocks me every time. on the other hand, GoT has, imo rarely produced anything as good as doctor who in its finest moments. while GoT is certainly the more consistent show, with many many epic scenes and episodes, episodes like dark water, mummy, blink, day of the doctor, midnight, A town called Mercy, most of remembrance and genesis and war games and talons and Pandorica and impossible planet and day of the moon still outclass Game of Thrones.  so i think i prefer dr who. by like the tiniest possible margin. really glad breaking bads not on this list lol.

just saying, i very much doubt that the master just regenerated into a woman. at most, this has been referenced in the shows mythos and it seems unlikely that no on screen characters would have regenerated into the opposite sex. the doctor was given the choice of becoming a woman but that was a synthetic regeneration. and as for the Corsair, any number of events could have occured resulting in a cross-gender regeneration. im not saying that it cant be done, merely that i dont think it can be done without some extent of external interference causing it. given that the master has stolen people's bodies before, it seems likely to me that he stole the body of a woman rather than regenerating from Simms to Gomez.

@BoneyardBetty @gunslinger19 iv always felt that there was a romantic element between the doctor and the master, particularly from the master's side of things but also from the doctor "you could be so beauiful." but both characters have likely hid any feelings because they are arrogant people and would likely see it as an affront to their masculinity on some level. this barrier is no longer there, there is always a potential for romance and when characters are getting off with eachother all over the place, theres quite a bit of potential,

on reflection, i do have one problem with a female master. i was thinking as i was watching that despite the return of this villain i love, it just didnt feel like the master had returned. but i didnt dislike the performance. in fact i preferred it to Simm's incarnation. i think the problem is that when the doctor and the master are the same gender, it makes it easier to see the brilliant parallels between the two characters. having them as different genders, with a potential for romance, somehow takes away from the Doctor/Master dynmic in my opinion. saying this, i loved Gomez's interpretation and i felt like this was the best episode of the best season ever. seriously hoping that next week will stay this strong we could be looking at the best story of all time.
