it would be awesome from a doctor who perspective, but Sherlock cant exist in the whoniverse because the scale of Sherlock's story is so small in comparison to any major whoniverse characters. who cares about Magnussen doing a bit of blackmail when there could be a dalek invasion at any moment?

1 day, 7 hours ago on Last Christmas Advance Review
i do understand why people dislike end of time, and its certainly not even close to my favorite episode, but at the end of the day it atleast serves as a compelling story which brought back Gallifrey effecively and provided some beautiful Master scenes. furthermore, it provided a lot of closure for the whole of 10's era. why did he have to die? because he took down Harriet jones which allowed for the rise of saxon. he had to die because he took down Torchwood which led to the rise of Naismith. he was overly curious and went to the end of the universe even though he knew he should have left straight away, and resurrected the master. he had to die because despite all that he had done, he was a coward when he say ood sigma and ran away for ages. say what you will about end of time, but the reasons that led to 10's downfall were all brought on by him, and thats beautiful. as for the self indulgent ending, yeah it was a bit over the top but 10 was a self indulgent person. it doesnt cheapen other regenerations it just makes them different. and the final lines were pretty much inevitable after his catchphrase was let us go. so i get why its not perfect, but it doesnt deserve the hate it get imo.

there are not many decisions they could take that could ruin a series for me, but im pretty sure a child companion would spoil it for me. please can they never ever do this. the truth is, imo, almost all adult writers find writing the voices of children extremely difficult. they try to present them as creative and observant, which ends up appearing forced such as angie working out Porridge's identity. they try to present them as realistic by making them obsessed with social media despite being on a different planet which is just wrong. they make them overly emotional, ie courtney's "its just a baby", it would be much more interesting to use kids to highlight how adults are the immature ones by showing courtney want to kill the moon dragon. but writers of this show will never do this. and why do we need children to display the doctor's paternal side? hes thousands of years older than us he can be paternal to literally anyone. i would like to see a companion from the future more than the other suggestions, but i feel it would need to be along side a present day companion so that we can have pop culture references still and identify with a character. basically, bring back Jack.
3 days, 3 hours ago on 4 Different Types of Companions Doctor Who Should Consider
by the end of children of earth, Jack was already one of the greatest , most developed characters in the show. of course im glad that the doctor's back story is ambiguous, but Jack is basically a doctor with a visible back story. thematically, he is pure gold. bringing him back could show us how the doctor's influence has turned him into the man who was willing to face his death by bomb in doctor dances to the man who cant die and deep down wishes he could. having killed his own son, Jack is condemned to self torture, though he perhaps finds peace by looking at Oswald Danes. Jack's life can only be seen as unnatural, which could lead to some great Frankenstein-esque moments. i think the doctor can see much of himself in Jack. and there is a lot of unanswered questions still. what happened to Grey in the end? what happened when Jack's memory was erased and why was he going to be executed? what happened to the family? personally, i would like to see Jack in the far future, desperately trying to find a cure for his immortality. and Torchwood needs a return. as for River, her story seems to be over. but i wouldnt mind her returning just once in a few incarnations time. i dont think it needs to be seismic. it could be a character driven story about how the doctor forgets about people and moves on. imagine if the doctor becomes so old he forgot about her. thats a story i would like to see.
5 days, 3 hours ago on “Jack & River Returns Would Have to be Seismic” – Moffat
the thing is, i dont see Clara as being particularly clever or capable, but i do see the inflated ego. every time she saves the day, its felt very forced to me. take into the dalek for example. what she did was sort of resourceful but it was stupid and shes never really presented as clever. if anything, i would say that Clara was one of the least intelligent companions. and yet still the most smug one. thats a huge factor for why i dislike her.

i am strongly against a female doctor. i wouldn't stop watching if this happened, but i think it would be a huge misstep. maybe one day, when the show is truly tired, it might be a good idea. but at this point, i could easily see a good 20 years of Who still to come. so why risk the whole show with a stunt that seems gimmicky, boring and silly. i hope that the outcome in this poll reflects a lack of enthusiasm for the female doctor because this sort of thing could actually effect the BBC's and Moffatt's decisions.

1 week, 4 days ago on BBC Theme Park Set to Feature Doctor Who
totally agree with everything you say. In all honesty, i think its just as sexist for the doctor to regenerate into a women, if not more so (im not saying that either side of this argument is sexist because neither side is sexist AT ALL with the exception of a few individuals on both sides). can female characters not be effective unless they have been previously men? and i agree that as the doctor has never been presented as transgender and it would seem silly to have him change into a woman. while the doctor could start displaying signs of being transgender, the show would never be able to explore these themes because the character of the doctor wouldn't be phased by the change. sure, if we saw a character struggling to cope with the change due to society and their own personal misgivings, it would be interesting. but the doctor exists outside of society and wouldn't care himself. how can you explore a theme that none of the characters care about? even if some characters did care, you could never see a character like a companion dislike the change because their character would be forever branded sexist and conservative. so there really is no-where to go thematically with the idea.

@jamesanash101, Agent of the C.O.M.P.A.N.I.O.N.S @gunslinger19 yeah i understand that other people can relate to protagonists that are of different genders, and im not closing myself off from it. its just that when i list my favorite characters, it always seems to be men. thats just me of course and i certainly wouldnt stop watching the show. its just that the doctor is perhaps the character i associate with the most and i wouldnt want such a big change to get in the way of that. also, i see no point to the change like why fix whats not broken?
1 week, 6 days ago on Moffat: Gender is Fluid on Gallifrey
I take the view that if its not stated in show, its not canon. so gender isnt necessarily fluid on Gallifrey. in fact, given that the Master is known for possessing his bodies rather than straight forward regeneration, it seems likely that this is the reason for the change. in fairness, i like the idea of a female doctor more since Missy's performance. but i still dont like the idea. as a male, i am obviously going to relate more to a male protagonist. so why would i want the change?
@supermoff of C.L.A.R.A. can't wait for Christmas! @gunslinger19 thats true, though thinking about it i think he should have answered who blew up the TARDIS sooner. it was obvious who it was, but the lack of a direct answer really bugged me lol.
2 weeks ago on Steven Moffat: An Era of Forgotten Things
i actually think that not having everything answered adds a sense of realism to the show as in real life not everything is answered. its possible that the daleks reused old casings (though i actually prefer the paradigm look) and im pretty sure we see Missy escape Gallifrey in the painting. and frankly, im glad that Courtney and the Maitlands were unanswered. in fact i wish there had never been a question in the first place and they had simply not featured. i am so happy that Courtney didnt appear in DW/ DIH that was my main worry for the series!
i hope he doesnt mellow anymore
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Capaldi’s Doctor Will Evolve in Series 9
i think its important that each doctor has a lot of companions because it allows the viewer to see multiple sides to him. if Clara stays another series, we will likely see only Capaldi with 2 companions. this saddens me greatly as it was one of the few downsides to elevens era.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Clara, or a New Companion for Series 9?
i think a new companion all series, but i really want there to be more companions that stay for 2 or 3 stories like adam and jack in series 1.
@The Lazy Cat is Hanging Out With Jenna Coleman that is an interesting read, but can i ask the question: where is the justification for Clara turning her life into stories? its certainly an interesting way of looking at her. but why would she do this subconsciously? perhaps if this had been a more apparent, explored theme, or perhaps if we had seen a storyline which made her unable to except the mundane, i would accept it better.
2 weeks, 5 days ago on 5 Reasons Why Clara Should Stay for Series 9
@Notsosmartguy Agent of C.L.A.R.A. @gunslinger19 hmm ok i agree with you to some extent, but thats actually quite limited development which was only really seen in flatline and the finale. and it was quite slap in the face development noit subtle at all. they even commented on it. i felt like that development was forced just for the sake of having development.
you dont always need to see everything. yes it would be interesting to see Clara dealing with trauma. do we need to see it? no. iv never been a big fan of Clara, but i am in the minority who preferred her in series 7 to series 8 by a big margin.
the thing about Clara is that if you like her, you will really like her because shes such a big part of the show. if you dont like her, you will really hate her for the same reason. personally, i find her personality to feel forced and delivered in a 'told and not shown' manner. i also dislike the way shes been shoe horned into doctor who history pre unearthly child twice. but thinking about it, if the same thing had been done with Amy, my favorite companion, i would hardly have minded.
i think another issue is that people who dislike clara are really antagonized by elements like the theme with her eyes in the vortex and her cockiness and the way the doctor always listens to her even when she is wrong. this needs to be toned down if she is going to stay because frankly, it was the one major problem for me with series 8.
as an actress, i think shes decent, but the amount of praise she gets is a bit over the top i think. certainly, she never got close to the awesomeness of Capaldi imo.
i think her ending in death in heaven was brilliant, the best part of her character, and it saddens me that the one thing i like will be cheapened by a character return. it must also be said that Clara really doesnt deserve a happy ending after she lied to Danny and betrayed the doctor.
i feel like companions have been staying too long lately. with Amy it was ok because she was diluted by Rory and River. but Clara really doesnt interest me enough to warrant what could be 2 and a half years.
iv also never seen an effective defence of Clara's character. all i ever see is "shes done so much for the doctor, without her the doctor would be dead." which isnt really an argument at all because its a plot point.
other arguments like "shes a really developed character" dont ring true either because she hasnt actually changed that much. would bells of saint john Clara have jumped in the time stream? almost certainly. would she have fallen for Danny? almost certainly. would she have lied to Danny? once again, yes. would she have betrayed the doctor to save Danny? well she didnt know him but if she had then probably yes.
so thats my opinion. but im pretty sure im in the minority and im pretty sure she will stay. i just really hope we get a new companion along side her for people who dont like her.
loved the hey missy was thinking someone should do that
2 weeks, 6 days ago on Weird and Wonderful
my issues with the finale are plentiful but the issues you have outlined dont really bother me. i think its very in character for the Master want to give the doctor an army because the army would make him do bad things and turn him into a more master-compatible character. my main problem was how forced it seemed to me. why would she try to kill the doctor on the plane if that would destroy her plans? it was a plot point that should have been brought up at the beginning, not the end. i suppose the plot point hinges on how bad a state places like the dalek prison camps are. for all the viewer knows, there could be trillions of beings being tortured horrifically for no reason. if this is the case, perhaps the moral thing to do would be to take the army of cybermen and free the prisoners.in many ways, the doctor's actions can be seen as quite selfish as he acted in order to make sure that he wouldnt be corrupted rather than thinking about the bigger picture. the conclusion kind of made sense because the graveyard cybermen may not have even contained the pollen and they were simply igniting the clouds when they exploded. the ending wasnt awful imo, as it did sort out the problem in a way that wasnt deus ex machinaey, but it was somewhat out of the blue. my main issue with the episode was actually the tacked on themes. the doctor's 'i am an idiot speech' was awful for me, because it just came from no-where, was absolutely meaningless and answered the "who am i" question in a cop out way. nobody knows who the doctor is. its a question to which there is no answer, hes not an idiot, lets be honest. the answer was quite boring to be honest. dark water was such a good episode. and death in heaven dissapoointed me. however, i did like it overall. despite a few problems, there were some wonderful scenes in there. i loved everything omn the plain, especially Osgood's death. i loved the doctor's fall to his TARDIS with his theme playing and Chris Addison fangirling. if i could change one thing about the episode, it would be Clara. all her scenes were boring. her escape by pretending to be the doctor was mildly interesting i suppose, but sort of useless to the plot. and by the end of the story, i didnt care about Danny or Clara. i loved the ending where the doctor and clara lie to each other though. that was beautifully tragic and i really feel that they should have left Clara there.
3 weeks ago on The Problems with Death in Heaven
her and Rory are my favorite companions and they came along simultaneously! winter quay was their best scene imo. really wish it had been their last. there was something so perfect about them. i think Moffatt had Amelia's character planned a long time in advance. the themes of faith and love and indoctrination were so strong throughout their era. and it must be said that they characterised eleven's run just as much as Smith did. and Amy's return in time of the doctor made me so happy. the ful circle of Amy becoming the doctor's imaginary friend...wow. hbd Amelia!

i dont particularly like or dislike Osgood, but i hope she stays dead. seeing a relatively major character die a true death basically never happens. last one i can think of was brigadier but now hes come back. umm Linda? River sort of died sort of? i dont know tbh. noone important dies. lets be honest, Amy and Rory should have died from falling off winter quay. that was a perfect ending, and Moffat had to go and undo it all! it still saddens me. so please may Osgood AND DANNY stay dead. and may she mark the beginning of a long tradition of killing major characters. we can start with Clara. after what she did to Danny with the lying etc and after betraying the doctor she really deserves to die. and then we can see some real drama. and lets have a load of new supporting characters brought in to act as fodder for for shock value deaths please. all the best characters die. a good death can make a character. look at Adric. disliked by the fandom, but those last words broke a lot of hearts. and look at Osgood. her death scene was her best scene. really gave the actress a chance to shine. and gave one of the best Master scenes ever. so more deaths please. they are needed.

urgh i dont get what people like about the series 4 finale. imo, it was just terrbible. the 1st 2 episodes were decent i guess, but journeys end was devoid of plot or effective character drama (except donna which was ok) and that button thing was horrible. and the idea that Davros could destroy every universe makes no sense because there must be an alternate dimension where he succeeded which would destroy every universe. that is, imo, the biggest plothole as there is no reasonable explanation. in guess the bomb wasnt going to work? that kind of defeats the point of the story. also what they didnwith Rose destroyed a decent companion exit. and wors is underrated i think certainly shouldnt have come last. still glad that series 1, 5 and 8 did well!

4 weeks ago on Unpopular Opinion: Missy the Master
@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.

when i think of the master, i think of Ainley. its just me, and i know that the others were all great, but iv always felt like hes in control of a situation. the others were the same ofcourse, but this was especially apparent to me with Ainley.
