Loved this article! I've been saying almost the exactly the same things for ages now on sites like this and nobody would listen. Finally someone stating the obvious problems with the show, instead of just sitting back and not saying anything. The asylum of the daleks is terrible television. That's fact. Some people may like ot yet still the episode was ran terribly. Plot holes, poor writing and just terribly handled in general.

Thank you Daniel Massey.

How will the show get better if we do not criticize it?

Not eshamed of myself saying this but I would be delighted if Moffat leaves. I'm not just another Rtd fan boy but I have just hated the last three seasons. Far too childish, terrible characters, terrible character development, awful villains, very unpolished and way too much plot holes. And also sexism.

Certainly my least favourite thing from the last three seasons has been lack of sense of threat. I knew it was always going to be different but still it would still have a sense of threat because doctor who has always had a sense of threat, but no. The last three seasons have been far too childish and

I'm sorry but that comment really pained me to read. " She's quick - witted, funny, independent, kind and very caring. " - my reaction : AHHHH! I think what's happened here is the writers clearly don't know what Clara's character is and you've taken this into thinking that she's great because she has lots of different characters. Yeah, no it's more like she's just a completely different character in every episode because her character hasn't been given any care from Moffat at all. Her personality is a mess.

"She's quick-witted, funny, independent, kind and very caring."-my reaction:AHHHH! I think what's happened here is the writers clearly don't know what Clara's character is or who she is, because Moffat is an awful showrunner, and you've taken this into thinking that she is great because she can be all these characters. Yeah, no it's more like she's just a completely different character in every episode because her character hasn't been given any care from Moffat at all. Her personality is a mess.

"Although traveling was always her dream, Clara is not ready to abandon her life and go traveling with the Doctor full-time, which happened with pretty much all the other companions, so it's nice to have a breath of fresh air." Yeah, I also think if it's stupid, out of place and unneeded but a breath a fresh air it's good. So you say you 'like it' how she has a dream for travelling wich was established in her first adventure but she still can't run

@Adric the Genius @naoise406  Although I am getting fed up by the companions constantly being 29 year old girls from present Britain I would still like plenty of episodes in present day because when you see cybermen or whatever walking around in present day it seems a lot more real.

@Notsosmartguy  Clara is one of the worst companions ever. This isn't my opinion it's just fact. Everything is wrong with her. Far too perky and annoying, terrible character development and bad actress. Also she is just like every other Moffat female character, at times, because she is never the same person. The writers clearly don't know what her character is.

@ChildoftheTardis @thesnarkyfangirl @naoise406  That's not the problem the problem is the writers didn't even give her a character.

@ilyootha @naoise406  Good point that Capaldi already has a motive I didn't think of that. But seriously Clara is one of the worst companions ever. This isn't my opinion it's just fact.

@DaireConstantineOReilly  In my opinion he was just childish and stupid but then when the writers decided the episode should end he suddenly became serious. Whats's alien about that? I think that's just poor character development.

@Mikel c  Yeah, like Utopia that's a real "sloppy" episode for directing. I mean who the hell is Graeme Harper? *SARCASM. In my opinion directing doesn't really matter in doctor who, it all depends on the writing. Unless it's an episode that has brilliant sites in it like Galifrey or something like that, I don't really see the directing making such a big difference to the episode. For instance if I look at these two episodes Midnight and The day of the doctor, Midnight isn't directed very well but the day of the doctor is. Yet I still enjoyed Midnight much much more because in my opinion the day of the doctor is far too childish and there is too much fan service in the episode but in Midnight it is terrifying yet a incredibly intriguing look on humanity and society. Now i'm not saying that every episode has to be like that, but it was just a good example. Just my own personal opinion.

I think something that would really stir things up would be to kill off clara in the first episode. Let's face it clara has beew an awfull companion so why not shock everyone by killing her off. Tj

That would be some way of showing that it's not a childish show. Also then peter capaldi's doctor could have a motive; to track down who killed her.

When I heard this guy Ben Wheatley was to direct doctor who I wasn't really that exited because I hadn't watched his stuff, but I must say now that I have heard this I'm very excited for him.

Seance of threat and real dark moments is something that has really been missing with doctor who since Moffat. It has been far too childish. I appreciate Moffat trying new things with the show but when it's just stupid humour I hate it. Worst things being the slapstick humour, lack of threat and really weak villains.

Have you scene the series three finale? The master murders children, and turns them into killing machines. Now that's pretty dark but I don't remember much of a fuss being made about it. So I say no boundaries for doctor who. Also I certainly don't think Stevan Moffat making doctor who too dark is really something you should be worrying about considering the last three seasons have basically been a crappy sci-fi sitcom.
