also that scene where the doctor gives the guy the tablet, that look of mutual trust that didnt pay off broke my heart in a good way.

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

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!

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...

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

i rewatched this recently and the one thing i really disliked was the bin, especially as it burped after it ate Mickey. alien bodily gases were a blight that plagued the 1st half of series 1. but all in all it must have done something right as the new series is a massive success.

maybe 12 discovers that by saving caecilius, 10 had done some serious damage to time. in order to fix this, he went to pompeii and told his current companions to pretend to be his family. as neither the doctor or his family were from pompeii, none of them would need to die in pompeii and their survival couldnt cause damage to time. not sure how this would work in practice and pretty much definitely wont happen but...anythings possible

i dont think it really matters when he returns, but when he does i would like to see him try to justify his powerlust. after all, a strong leader has its benefits and im sure that the master feels that he should have the power for the greater good of everyone. im sure the doctor would beg to differ

@007 Bond 50 @gunslinger19 tbh, deep breath is more important to the show than the 50th. i mean it gives us a whole new era and a whole new doctor whereas the 50th was a celebration. whats more important a birthday or your first day at a new job? ultimately, the birthday isnt going to impact your life nearly as much

i dont understand why it cheapens the 50th. if dr who cinema releases end with the 50th, surely that is what cheapens it. if it doesnt lead to something greater and a long term tradition of cinematic dr who, then what was the point?

to me, its pretty much irrelevant how she works as a plot device. she may be useful and productive (even if she often saves the day in somewhat contrived ways) but she as a character has always seemed weak to me. the way she talks so quickly undermines her imo, because real people aren't as clever or witty as a time lord. in fairness to her, she came mid series after my two favorite companions left so she was always gonna have big shoes to fill. also, i really dislike her theme. its catchy and everything, but it doesnt really match her character. Amy's had a fairytale vibe that was quite sad underneath showing how she was always waiting and still a child underneath it all, highlighting how the doctor stole her life. Martha's seemed to me to show her independance and was quite involved, while donnas was suitably comical for probably the funniest companion. Clara's just doesnt represent Clara to me. Clara is quite grown up, and yet she has a theme that mightve suited young amy. its got a slow pace for a fast paced character. on the plus side, all this talk of her being a control freak definitely brings some hope that she will improve. it does seem a bit tacked on, but i think that a defining character trait like this could really help Clara to overcome what i see as an unrealistic, shallow personality. hopefully the reason why she seeks control could be explored as well.

definitely agree, i think that moffat should have stuck with the victory design, which im pretty sure was his original intention. i actually think they look great. theyre less elegant but then daleks have no concept of elegance and they should look ugly and grotesque. then again, i think the time war daleks could be gradually phased out. maybe they could have a civil war between paradigm and time war? i really feel like the time war daleks are getting old and a new design would go along way to restoring the daleks to their former majesty.

yes hes exactly right. without the other doctors, any single incarnation would immediately lose its awesomeness. when you look at Capaldi, some of the fun will always be knowing that Smith, pertwee and mccoy are rattling around inside his head

@GRANDMARSHALL i dont see how the moffat tone was in anyway similar to love and monsters. i wouldnt even say that the show has become less dark, in fact i think that moffat made the show much darker than RTD. and i dont think that just because you like one era means that you cant enjoy the next era.

ok, i think Capaldi is absolutely the right choice and what hes saying makes sense. however, im not sure if him having too much control over the script/direction of the show is that good a thing. i mean, he is just an actor he should be trying to interpret Moffat's or whichever writer's vision of what the show should be. just my opinion, but i do feel that successful actors are often given too much power in the tv/movie making process. i was also a bit annoyed by the fact that no-one else was auditioned for the part which seems a bit unfair. but as i said, I love Capaldi, hes my first choice and i have absolute confidence in him. cant wait for series 8!

agreed, but i actually think 60 minutes was fine. there wasnt a single moment that bores me in Time, and that might change if Moffat had added loads of extra padding. the regeneration scene was perfect and i loved how Amelia became the doctor's imaginary friend so they kind of swapped roles. but i still kind of feel that "love from gallifrey boys" would have been an unbeatable final line
