i am sooooooo excited i cannot believe how fantastic this series sounds please can time hurry up?!!!!
1 day, 17 hours ago on Moffat Previews Series 8 in Radio Times
this makes me so excited why dont they just get everyone from thick of it and have a full scale crossover?
1 day, 18 hours ago on Chris Addison to Guest in Series 8 Finale
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.
1 day, 19 hours ago on New Who Openers In Perspective: Rose
didnt moffat and thompson co-write Riechenback falls? that bodes well for time heist, even if Thompson's previous who contributions stand amongst my least favorite episodes
2 days, 8 hours ago on Series 8: All Titles Revealed
surprisingly im most intrigued by time heist. it sounds like an idea previously unexplored by Who
2 days, 18 hours ago on Series 8: All Titles Revealed
very interesting, wonder if we'll be getting a more manipulative, cunning 14th doctor aswell
3 days, 9 hours ago on Is Doctor Who History Repeating Itself?
i am actually so excited likei cannot express how much this is on my mind
1 week ago on Deep Breath Time Confirmed
that trumpet thing would really annoy me actually
1 week ago on Coleman on Clara and Danny in Series 8
this bodes well for the character imo, but i wonder if he might get a negative reception cos all the guys will be jealous of clara lol
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

@SephoraNeedSeries8 @gunslinger19 yes but surely the bliss drug wouldve beeen tested on the flesh patients?
1 week, 1 day ago on Deep Breath: A Recipe for Success
it only just occurred to me that by getting rid of the test patients, the doctor caused the apocalypse in gridlock. very clever...
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
1 week, 5 days ago on Moffat on Why the Master Won’t Be Back
deadly spontaneous combustion sounds a bit like regeneration
1 week, 5 days ago on Deep Breath Synopsis
i dont think there needs to be a special, the absolute most i would hope for might be some sort of time crash-like miniepisode which would be fantastic
1 week, 6 days ago on No 10th Anniversary Special For New Who?
this makes me have a lot of hope for the new series. but i dont think that doctor who is "essentially a kids show"

@Invictus12 i really like 42 :/
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Moffat on Series 8′s Smaller Story Arc
hmm was kinda hoping the finale would just be cybermen but i trust whatever moffat does will be good!
@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
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Does Deep Breath Really Deserve a Theatrical Release?
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.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Popular / Unpopular Opinion: Clara Oswald
@Meh Meh Meh Meh Meh i guess that as the events of elizabethan england were from 10's time stream, he can remember them only without remembering War or eleven's presence. the war doctor wouldve forgotten the events while 10 and eleven couldve retained them
2 weeks, 4 days ago on The Future of Multi-Doctor Stories
im pretty sure they explain why past doctors look older in time crash.
maybe the tardis is normal sized and the doctor and clara are giants...

just realised that anyone going Redding festival will miss this...maybe me not getting tickets was a good thing
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Deep Breath To Be Shown in Cinemas Globally
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.
3 weeks ago on Time to Regenerate the Daleks?
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
3 weeks ago on Capaldi: Different, But Still Unmistakably Doctor Who
is anyone else worried that after Capaldi whoever takes over is likely to have a voice that simply wont be able to compare??
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Listen! Series 8 Teaser Trailer
@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.
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Capaldi was Adamant About No Flirting in Series 8
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!
i love a town called mercy so much, nice to see some positivity around my favorite episode. i dont think Jex did deserve death as he saved so many lives compared to maybe a few hundred that he had to kill. he sacrificed his personal honour for the greater good.
3 weeks, 3 days ago on New Who: The Story Thus Far – Series 7 (Part 1)
maybe a warning like "dont blink?" will 12 be facing something that uses sound as a weapon or perhaps is made from sound? if so, the sonic would be pretty useful.
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
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Why I Love the 11th Doctor’s Regeneration
@Lemonhead118 @gunslinger19 hmmmmm on the one hand i do like watching it at home but then i missed dotd at the cinemas and its one of my biggest regrets. hmmmmmm....
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Deep Breath To Be Shown in Cinemas Globally
so will i be able to watch the episode at home and then watch it the day after at the cinema or something cos that would be ideal for me?
has it ever been confirmed that the hartnell incarnation was the 1st? i know he says hes the original and that wouldnt make sense in terms of regen limit but its not totally impossible
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Moffat Questions “Twelfth Doctor” Title
that might be the best picture ever...
urgh literally just bought the 50th on blue ray. ah well
4 weeks ago on Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Collection DVD & Blu-ray
i think im gonna like the robin hood episode hoping its a bit like a town called mercy and it has Ben Miller in it!!!!! really like exploring whether or not the doctor is a good man which seems to be a prevalent question this series. also a heist episode sounds really interesting
4 weeks ago on SFX #251 Previews Series 8
a suspended console would have been interesting but id be worried that whenever anyone lent on it it would break lol
4 weeks ago on How does the TARDIS reflect the Doctor? (Part 2)
cant say i agree, my opinions of child actors are rarely positive and Sky is no exception. even Luke, Rani and Clyde annoy me to a great extent although they were handled comparatively well. and im actually dreading the child character of George Ellis(?) in series 8. sky was nowhere near as bad as Angie and Artie, but she still basically seemed to be a replica of Luke which to me made her much less interesting. and i never understood why Clyde or Rani would treat her as an equal and hang out with her when she is so much younger than them. its always seemed slightly strange to me. after only appearing in 3 stories, i think its better to leave this stone unturned. this leaves her fate up to the viewer's imagination which will always be better than what the writers come up with. this is all just my opinion and my view of children in the whoniverse may seem a bit harsh, but i really find some of them to almost ruin episodes for me
1 month ago on Bring Back… Sky Smith
yeh in day of the doctor iv basically decided that the fact they were in a painting meant that they could vibrate the paint molecules in the dalek, and the fact that there were 3 of them amplified the sonic's power. i think they should retire the sonic as it wouldnt really make sense for the doctor to just not use it when it could save the day. but if not, could they just not use the sonic in the climax maybe? its a useful narrative device for collating information and moving the plot forward and opeing doors, but the climax should be a moment built by the entire narrative, not just the sonic
1 month ago on Doctor Who’s Biggest Deus Ex Machina
the problem with having so many parts to a story is that your forced to constantly create cliffhangers which work well once or twice but after that often seem forced and anticlimactic. longer episodes would answer this problem i think, and if that means less stories so be it.
1 month ago on Are Longer Stories Better? Five Classics
i imagine he would compliment the doctor's passionate intensity with a glacial reserve
1 month ago on McGann: Charles Dance Would Be a Great Master
@Antee991166 @gunslinger19 yeah i know but given that he seems to be questioning who he is in the trailers and that this is a new regeneration cycle which could result in a very dodgy regeneration, i think that long term memory loss is a real possibilty for series 8
1 month ago on How Far Into Darkness will the 12th Doctor Take Us?
im starting to wonder how much Capaldi's incarnation actually remembers his past selves. hes certainly forgotten how to fly the TARDIS and he seems to not remember some aspects of who he is given his lack of certainty over whether or not hes a good man. ofcourse, this can be seen as a change in perspective. the audience doesnt really know if the doctor is a good man, mainly because theres so much mystery behind him and many of his acts are ultimately questionable. this leads me to believe that the focus of Capaldi's tenure will be an attempt to rediscover himself. he will remember some things, but great swathes of his past will have gone missing (perhaps the fact that he saved gallifrey which might complicate his search for it). that may be why he goes to Vastra, Strax and Jenny in episode 1 and it may be why hes trying to redeem the mistakes of his past. all conjecture of course, but this would make for a doctor that may not be that much darker than the others, but his own moral failings may also be more highlighted within the show.
anyone else wonder if when capaldi says "into darkness" he might be going to save gallifrey in 'no sir...all 13' bit? it would kind of fit with the previous line of cleaning up his mistakes

how can i put this in a way that doesnt sound too pessimistic? OMGOMGOMGOMFGITSAMAZINGNoMoreWAITINGCAPALDISSOEXCITINGISITBADTHATTHETHINGTHATEXCITESMEMOSTISGETTINGTOSEEHISEYESAGAIN?!!!!!!!!!!
its true that there is no way that any major character seems likely to die. this is a shame because character deaths are one of the most interesting things to watch and make for beautiful tv when done properly. but on a show like GoT where there are literally hundreds of characters this is much easier. we really need to make a more in depth universe, eg with paternoster and unit, and then kill off loads of characters in moving and effective ways.
1 month, 1 week ago on Where Doctor Who Could Improve and How
While i would love to see an 8th doctor spin off, and think that it should happen, i do accept that dr who is better served by not having this. i loved the 50th, but the depiction of the time war was, in my opinion, the worst aspect by far. there seemed to be so little imagination, so little effort. the time war has always been presented as far more than a series of battles. i want to see the horrors of the time war. it wouldnt have even cost that much. we got epic special effects for the city of gallifrey, but i would have preferred to have a time lord church with women and children singing hymns and the sound of men dying outside. maybe the daleks could even attack the church eventually. that would have been so much more effective and we could see some hardcore time lord culture. i wanted to see a battle. it doesnt have to be epic or lord of the rings style, but they couldve shown like a lot of time lords all marching to re-take Arcadia's citadel or something. i wanted war cries and battle speeches from the doctor! the one consolation is that the 50th didnt actually mean that these things didnt happen, but a whole time war series could never portray the war how we have imagined it. on the other hand, more who is a good thing so id totally be up for it!
