i have a feeling im going to love this episode but i think a lot of people wont. episodes that arent divisive tend to be boring anyway.
oh..except i think ill hate the kid. the kid is going to ruin this episode for me i can just feel it. the production team are brilliant, but ive never seen them get a fully rounded human child character quite right. even young Amelia had issues (eg "dear santa, its not easter yet so i hope i didnt wake you" is some really silly dialogue). especially when it comes to teenaged girls. i think adults and younger children wont mind so much. but as a seventeen year old, i find teenagers in doctor who to have horrible, cringey, unbelievable dialogue and i think that writers have no idea how to give them an accurate, convincing voice. take Angie for example. im one of the people who loves NiS, except i never watch it because of Angie and Artie. they spoiled a Gaiman episode for me! but since the doctors gonna do something controversial, im thinking he might leave the kid to die? id be fine with that. in fact id be actively happy.

way i see it, a major law of time is that once u know the future, u cant purposefully go back and interfere with the past. they got there by accident so i think it makes perfect sense

thing is, that scene didnt reveal that much and can be interpreted in many ways. but, it does make the doctor a less interesting character because as rings of Akhaten taught us, nothing compares to infinite potential. most theories of who the doctor really is can survive that scene, but it does somewhat narrow it down. when we see the doctor steal the TARDIS in name of the doctor, i definitely think we lost something. i always imagined that the doctor had left Gallifrey as a young man, not old. i also thought he stole susan as a baby. these are completely unfounded, even somewhat contradicted theories, but i liked them and they gave the show its own identity for me. less really is more with the doctor and the less we know about his youth and the time war the better. Day of the doctor was so great because even though it was the 50th anniversary, it really gave nothing away. the atrocities of the time war still happened essentially off screen. this scene wasnt terrible, but i really hope that this sort of thing is avoided for the next couple of decades. in the space of 7 episodes weve gone back before an unearthly child twice! on the other hand, the scene was handled brilliantly and the unarmed, broken soldier symbol was fantastic. i almost wish it hadnt been Clara though. i know everyone seems to love her, but as someone who is very mixed on her character (and there are quite a lot of us) i do find her being imprinted on wholore so drastically quite annoying.

@supermoff is playing Grand Theft Karabraxos... @gunslinger19 i suppose, but that doesnt explain the fact that it looked like a very convincing alien aha
4 days, 18 hours ago on Poll: Listen – Was there a Monster or not?
@The_Eternal_Dalek @gunslinger19 yes. a child would have giggled or run away or something but just behaving creepily seems very unlikely. not impossible ofc
im pretty sure there was a hider in the bedroom, if not at the end of the universe. how did it get in if no one saw it get in? wouldnt the doctor have seen it get in as he must have entered at a similar time? how did it get beneath the bedsheets without any noise? it looked like an alien or atleast a deformed child. maybe a mask but thats a very good mask for a prank. the way that the bedsheet got taller was very inhuman. wouldnt a child have finished with the joke once two adults were present? like theres no way that was a child lets be serious.
@Benvenfold actually there are plenty of people annoyed about the "really satisfying callback" to the past

@BenIsacremeeggRhodes @gunslinger19 hmmm i always assumed that the whole of it was time locked, atleast for the post war doctor. but now that i think about it he does say to Caan "but thats impossible the entire war was time locked"

i wonder if the fact that listen wasnt really advertised that clearly had an impact on this. i mean, no one really knew what it was about unlike episodes 1-3 which were very clear. a shame because this was imo the best ep so far but im sure theyll pick up due to positive reviews etc and i know overnights dont mean much anymore.

loved this 10/10, still unconvinced/annoyed by Clara though Danny vastly improved. the bit at the end of the universe was so great. such intelligent writing from Moffat. i do forget sometimes how clever he is. not sure how the time lock got broken though. but still what a wonderdul episode! actually quite creepy even though that wasnt always the point. its great that we never see the hiders, except for that one scene with the blurry thing. it looked genuinely very scary, whatever it was(a small horned person with human hands??). and i guess we just had a multidoctor special! also, i always assumed that the doctor grew up in that house thing! guess great minds like mine and moffat's think alike...

quite often the problem is that music starts playing too loudly over dialogue and i cant here whats being said, though this isnt isolated to Capaldi. i noticed this with Riley when he says "then who sir will relieve you of your magic box?" Capaldi is generally clear but in that listen clip i did notice him not finishing the word "really." i understood it, but production values are important and i shouldnt be noticing things like that. overall its a minor issue and the accent isnt whats causing problems

the problem with having ian back, and correct me if im wrong, but didnt sarah jane say that him and barbara hadnt aged since the 60s?
1 week, 1 day ago on The Caretaker BBC Synopsis
@semipunk93 imo, that would be thw worst creative decision the production team could make. i cannot see a child companion working at all. young actors are not very dependable in their talent and while a suitable candidate may be found, the writing for such a character would almost certainly be aweful and cringworthy. i think that this would seriously alienate kids of the 15-17 age group aswell
1 week, 2 days ago on Taking a ‘Journey’ Into the Future: The Next Companion
the argument that the golden arrow resolution was fine because the doctor and the tardis and the whoniverse and the daleks and robots and robot spaceships dont exist really annoys me. yes, doctor who operates in a world where there are aliens and they have technology of which we cannot concieve. but the world still exists within its own canon and the basic laws of physics more or less follow our own. now if it were possible to shoot a heavy golden arrow that far, which its not, firing solid gold into the hard casing of an engine built to survive in space that requires molten gold to pour into circuitry accelerate the systems is just not feasable, especially given that the amount of gold in the arrow was tiny compared to tat vat of gold in the castle. and the design of the spaceship implied that this was one of four vats. it could not have happened. the robots were from the 29th century and therefor could have happened because technology is far advanced there. the daleks could happen in the real world on a planet far away. there could be a planet Gallifrey with time lords and tardises which we dont know about. these are possible, especially within the confines of the show. the golden arrow resolution is not.
1 week, 2 days ago on Robot of Sherwood Review
i thought that whether or not Robin was real was left up to the viewer? i mean the doctor says its a terrible plan but as u said, its actually a very good plan. and given that the chances of Robin hood having merry men that were created by hollywood, surely either robin is a robot or its an astronomically large coincidence
@supermoff is alone. Listen... @gunslinger19 she may be clever, but thats exactly what i mean. how did she manage to hack a dalek? the doctor tried and even he couldnt do it. and that thing with the sherrif was transparent from the start. it was the sherriff's stupidity rather than her intelligence. and she gets so cocky liek im prett sure most people would have done that. in fairness, i liked how she defeated the halfway man cos that was effectievly explained via flashback :)
1 week, 3 days ago on Mission Impossible: Clara Oswald in Review – Part 1
@Planet of the Deaf @gunslinger19 i see what your saying i just found it really childish the way that she sort of pops out from behind robin it was a poor directors choice i think. and i found it jarring with the rest of scene that threatens hafl of England and has a final showdown between robin and the sherrif. but thats just me
iv loved every episode of series 8 so far, and i adore Capaldi, but Clara, imo, has become worse in series 8. i find her dialogue so unbelievable and cringeworthy. in fairness, she wasnt too bad in eps 1 and 2, but robot didnt do her any favors. i didnt mind the fangirling, but all that stuff where she shouts at the doctor and robin and the assertion that she is the ringleader was just annoying. lets face it, she was totally overshadowed by the doctor and robin's fantastic conversation. and that "hiya" when her and robin rescue the doctor was horrible. shes just so cocky despite the fact that shes not even that clever or brave. and the fact that other characters seem so taken with her for no reason (im looking at u doctor, vastra and jenny) just adds to her nothingness. the production team need to understand that just because a character is liked by other characters, doesnt mean shes a likeable character. also, i really dislike how well she knows the doctor. sure, she has met all of his incarnations etc, but the way that she immediately realises the doctor's motives and points out his moral flaws without even thinking about it just seems unbelievable to me. the impossible girl is an appropriate title for a character i genuinely dont believe can be a real person. im hoping she leaves after series 8. buthonestly, it doesnt matter too much. the rest of the series is so good that it can support a companion that i dislike.

thinking about it, the title only makes sense with the beheading scene. or am i missing something?
i actually really enjoyed this, although the golden arrow saving the spaceship bit made no sense as far as i can see. did anyone else think that having the doctor and robin together felt like having two doctors? the scene where robin pretends to be ill is classic its the first time iv laughed out loud at the show since the oval office in impossible astronaut. despite the lighthearted feel, the episode was thematically sound and using hood to reflect the doctor was very interesting. perhaps we could have seen the doctor reflected in the sherrif aswell though? basically i just want more ben miller. overall a 9/10 for me. much better tha i had expected!
i really think that shes the doctor/valeyard. since she just has Capaldi's accent, this sounds to me like shes changed because of him. even when her accent seems to change, its never strayed outside of an accent that the doctor has had. i really hope shes not really related to the gallifrey arc cos i want that arc to last ages. having said this, i wouldnt mind a mention of it at some point

hmmmm not sure how i feel about this. while people may be offended by this, the know the episode was written ages ago and this isnt making fun of it or anything. as long as the effectiveness of the episode is in no way lessened i suppose it ok. will we ever get to see this scene in like a dvd extra or something?
2 weeks ago on BBC Cuts Robot of Sherwood Scene
i think the three best historicals of new who were unquiet dead, girl in the fireplace and vincent and the doctor, mainly because the episodes really captured their respective historical character and said something new about them. Churchill was played well, but was quite 1 dimensional and had no real character or development. similarly, shakespeare just sort of showed off how clever he was. hopefully robin can have a full character that parallels nicely with the doctor's. after all, theyre both kind of outlaws in their own way.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Why I Love… Celebrity Historicals
i loved this episode, but i would have kept Clara out of the dalek. that way the dalek attack could have mattered more and we could care more about external affairs. she could still have had that wonderful dialogue with the doctor through a phone or something and she wouldnt have done all that stupid off the wall dalek memory thing where she suddenly knows how to rewire a dalek. but thats my main issue still loved the episode overall

2 weeks, 5 days ago on Rate & Discuss Into the Dalek
i was quite underwhelmed by this initally, but after rewatching i think its absolutely fantastic! the daleks are back and really quite threatening. and the psychological journey of the doctor and the dalek was stunning. the only thing im unsure of is Danny Pink. im sure he'll improve and the war stuff was fine. but i find his scenes really awkward to watch. i know thats the point, but theyre bad awkward not funny awkward. i dont believe that anyone would say those things out loud. but, once the awkwardness of their relationship has passed im sure he'll be fine. i think im gonna have to give this episode a 9.5/10 overall. lets hope Ford wrotes for the show again in series 9
i have a feeling that danny might kill Clara. i just feel that as this their first meeting its like foreshadowing.

what i love about this title sequence is how much it changes. it starts off murky and dark, turns lighter and mysterious, then concludes with a beautiful time vortex with planets and Capaldi's face. absolutely brilliant!

the music as soon as you see the back if the dalek is really ominous i love it.

does it really matter? the tenth doctor once said that he ha got clever, manipulating people into taking their own lives. this is similar and if anything much darker then killing a man who would have killed many more people. but iv decided the doctor did push him as far as im concerned because we know that the doctor was lying about his programming because weve seen him commit murder before.

this isnt really a theory on the gatekeeper, but if all of the enemies in each episode die and go to 'heaven,' and the finale features said 'heaven,' is it impossible that we might see these characters in the finale? could we see the half faced man again? and will the finale have all of the villains from across the entirety of series 8? it seems unlikely but Moffat did say it wasnt just the cybermen...
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Introducing Missy the “Gatekeeper”: Who is She?
this was really good, but im still unconvinced by Clara. i feel like Moffat tries to tell us her character rather than showing us. this is lazy writitng, but that just my opinion. the story was actually decent for a character led episode, though that fight scene with paternoster gang vs the droids was terribly choreographed. it definitely started better than it finished and i loved almost all of it until after the restaurant scene. maybe it shouldnt have been such a long episode? it certainly seemed to slow down by the end. did anyone else think that Capaldi listing the seven dwarves at the beginning was the funniest thing ever? he certainly is an incredibly talented comic actor (as well as a talented actor in general ofc). i loved the ambiguous way that the half faced man died as it doesnt alienate younger viewers but allows for Capaldi's darkness to shine. iv decided that he was pushed personally. overall 8.5out of 10 i think
