@Antee991166 @The_Eternal_Dalek  Repeats always get higher scores though, due to it normally being a more devoted audience rather than just casual viewers. At any rate everything is still holding up fine.

@Romanadvoratrelundar @MoserGray  The BBC shouldn't be concerned with the financial value of the show, because that shouldn't be their concern. Luckily Doctor Who is in a position where it doesn't need to have the financial backing to keep it going, it is still there on its own merit.

@Antee991166  I always love it when people talk about slight downward turns, it dipped a few points, it is still at a value considered "good" for a drama.

Personally I found it really awkward, although I would stress, I feel exactly the same way about them sticking hetero sexual kisses in the show. I just don't want to watch two people playing tonsil tennis while I'm trying to eat my tea, that's nothing to do with the genders of the people responsible though.


However, within the context of the story, Vastra released air from her lungs to keep Jenny going, isn't that pretty much breathing?

DWTV, may I politely request that the overnight ratings don't get reported? Ultimately nobody in the TV industry is interested in them so they have no impact on the show itself. AI ratings may, but overnights certainly don't, all they do is feed the trolls.

I'm still sticking with the Master, it is definitely the sort of thing Moffat would do, just to wind up certain portions of the fan base (we know who they are).

@ Notsosmartguy the dalek of Jersey  There is enough of a gap to allow the Master to still be around in the Whoniverse. This of course could lead to the Master seeking revenge on the Time Lords for what they did to him making the Doctor's search more urgent because if the Master gets there first he might lose Gallifrey all over again...

@Lord of Time  Matt Smith ruined everything on set. On his first day he was walking around with Steven Moffat and spilled a cup of coffee all over a poor woman. Later on he bumped into another woman and apologised to her for spilling coffee on her earlier. At this point Steven Moffat told him he'd apologised to the wrong woman but he simply responded "No, that was the second cup I spilt".

@TheIdleIdol  The second half of the Tenth Doctor's life was a new incarnation, as the Eleventh Doctor would later confirm in The Time of the Doctor. Still the same Doctor and same face, but it was a whole regeneration and knocked him to the twelfth incarnation.

@TheCapaldiMasterplan @The_Eternal_Dalek  I would believe that if it wasn't for Danny Cohen's press release.


Needless to say his explanation was nothing short of insulting towards Steven Moffat, basically saying he was incapable of handling two jobs at once and that he must be a dreadful father as well since he clearly takes no time off the shows.


Insult a man's work all you want, but when you start making assumptions about his personal life you've gone too far. As per usual it's a new controller trying to get himself noticed at the BBC, not that commissioning that awful singing show hadn't done that already...

Unfortunately history is repeating itself as it is always doomed to. Our only hope is that the comparison is only a temporary "coincidence".


There have been so many events that could be linked and connected up. There's even one you missed, the controller of BBC One pulling a stunt with the broadcasting schedule to make the producer and the show look bad (which did us out of a series in both 1985 and 2012/13).

@VictorWong1  Doctor Who was a cash cow for the BBC even in the 80s (back then of course it was one of the few shows actually making more money for the BBC than it cost to make).


What happened then was somebody didn't like Doctor Who and with some of his friends set up a hate campaign and destroyed the show's reputation. The worrying thing is while there is nobody who hates Doctor Who (that we are aware of) there is a high up exec who isn't a fan of Steven Moffat (in particular the fact he's got two of their biggest shows) and he has attacked Doctor Who in the past because of it. Anything more extreme could place it in a similar position.

@ilyootha is back in home Universe @sontaran17 @The_Eternal_Dalek  Difference is though Catherine Tate had an interrupted run where she wasn't the companion even if she was a "one-off" whereas Jenna Coleman has been in the companion role since The Snowmen. It's a nightmare for "the fans with their lists" (as Steven Moffat likes to call us) but at the end of the day, she's done the work so should get the credit. To start complaining she doesn't deserve it because we have a different version of the character is a bit ridiculous. She stuck with the role longer than anyone else through consecutive episodes.
