I would love the 11th and 12th Doctor to confront each other on whose opener was the best...and Capaldi would not give up without a fight (as is made clear in the above picture)...

@supermoff of Sherwood @Master Michael Moon @supermoff of Sherwood @NicholasHunter It's got me thinking though that Moffat being involved more within Series 8 could potentially be signalling him stepping down as show runner? I just have this feeling...

@Favonian Squall @Master Michael Moon Yes I would. And yes, they were very much to my approval. I remember hyping up over The Day of the Doctor and couldn't help feeling underwhelmed. I always prefer a series to specials though.

@supermoff  @Master Michael Moon @NicholasHunter It just goes to show how bad the show can get without Moffat's masterful writing. I mean no offence to Neil Gaiman, obviously his masterpiece, The Doctor's Wife is untouchable.

Loving the music from the TV trailer. I expect Murray Gold to do a magnificent job scoring this historical episode. However, like Deep Breath and Into the Dalek, I'm not getting my hopes up for Robot of Sherwood. But I do have a feeling that it will be up there with the likes of The Unquiet Dead and The Crimson Horror as Mark Gatiss' finest work on the show.

You have to hand it to Billy. A true and dedicated fan of the show and creating his own original title sequence concept that would eventually be adapted for the actual Series 8 titles. I am loving the fresh and slick feel to it and the blue theme it has. This for me is by far the second most welcome change for the new series, after the fabulous new Doctor of course...

It just goes to show what such a good writer Phil Ford is. Having a five year break from co-writing the masterpiece The Waters of Mars with RTD, he not only made the Daleks great again, but brought new and interesting ideas that mirrored both the 'good' Dalek and the Doctors' characters. I seem to think that the only part Moffat wrote was the brief heaven scene, but then his credit could also go to the fact that going inside a Dalek was his idea in the first place. Next: Phil Ford writes a two parter story set on the ruins of Skaro in which the Doctor is trapped between two sets of Daleks fighting a civil war, and an impossible choice of loyalty...

I truly believe Doctor Who is now back on form. Whilst being skeptical over the past four years with the Smith era, I am confident that Capaldi is fronting an exciting new direction. All is proved within this great second episode of Series 8. The Daleks were made great again! New ideas made the story interesting of what a 'good' dalek could be like. The special effects were top notch- probably the best I've seen on the show so far. And Phil Ford really put his passion into the writing and I'm sure Moffat's contributions were just as worthy. And I'm sure we'll see what happens to Rusty and the rest of the daleks sometime in the near future. Would love a dalek civil war story...

The Daleks are back! The best Dalek episode I have seen since Asylum of the Daleks. 9/10 I gave it. Great to see Missy again- I think we get the gist of that now! Will be interesting to see what happens to Rusty in the future, he would have been a good love interest for Handles :(...

@Doctor When I agree. I would be interested to know if anyone actually likes the Series 7 Part 1 titles. They were so so tacky. They give me migraines. And as for the Part 2 titles, they make me want to become unborn.

I do wonder if this damaged Dalek they supposedly enter and the fleet are survivors from the siege of Trenzalore. I can't see it being the time war. But then something about Journeys End is 'glimpsed'. Would quite like to see some continuty.

I still can't stop laughing at the Doctor in Deep Breath saying "Heyyyyyyyyyyy, big sexy woman!" to the dinosaur. In humour terms, Deep Breath beats The Eleventh Hour. I did mention previously about comparing these two episodes in the respect that The Eleventh Hour had more to establish, beyond the actual fiction and probably more behind the scenes in terms of the production team. Two very good episodes though.

Definitively Deep Breath. I like The Eleventh Hour, but think it's overrated. By the way, in that picture above Capaldi looks like he's violently constipated. And Smith looks like he's just been told a joke that's not funny. Probably remembering saying 'Who da man?'...

He was so menacing. And for me, Deep Breath is my favourite ever opener. Certainly in the Moffat era. For me it was faultless. I can't quite comprehend how much I loved Deep Breath. The atmosphere was amazing and Capaldi owned the stage. He was perfect when confronting Half Face and it reminded me a bit of Sherlock and Moriarty.

Well for me, I never really warmed to Clara pre-Deep Breath. To me, she was just on the side. But this episode wholeheartedly changed my perception of her. She had to deal with her best friend changing. Her selfishness aside, she really developed and proved herself a worthy and patient companion. I can't wait to see how her relationship with the new Doctor develops more over the remaining series.

I saw this at the cinema and wasn't that blown away by it. I would have liked a continuation inside the TARDIS of where it was crashing at and seeing more of Clara's reactions to the changed Doctor. But oh well.

The Doctor doesn't even know if he's a 'good man'. Heavy stuff. I assume he sees the Dalek, then goes off to the TARDIS to discuss something with Clara (the good man question probably) and then confronts it again to decide to do something...

Speaking of the length of episodes and 'time', I really wish from Series 9 onwards they'd just do 10 one hour episodes. I would be completely fine with that. I thought Deep Breath was the perfect start to Series 8 and the feature length run time enabled it to 'fly'...

I've just re-watched Deep Breath for the millionth time and I didn't even notice it. It doesn't even phase me. Why should it? It's just a kiss (and maybe it's a message to prejudice in our society). On a side note, I can't quite express enough how I love the new series. It's just magnificent. And also on topic, I want more Paternoster action. I am a convert...

People have to realise, Deep Breath is not The Eleventh Hour. It is merely The Christmas Invasion mark II. What The Eleventh Hour did was bring about a massive change in the dynamic of the show through changing absolutely everything. The only thing that has changed this time is the Doctor. His TARDIS is practically the same (bar a few modifications), Clara is still the companion (spilling over from the Smith era) and it still encompasses the same characters- i.e the Paternoster gang. These ratings are still good though and you have to remember it doesn't count cinema screenings. I'm guessing quite a lot (including myself) went to see it on the big screen, I mean, why not?

Ha, have just realised how clever Moffat was with that newspaper advert. The other side- so to mean 'heaven' but also the other side of the paper to direct Clara where to go. Because if she hadnt, the Half Face Man wouldn't have met his end and have come to Missy...

@supermoff  @Scootersfood @Exxilon5 @twoheartsonemind Doctor Who should get it's own international channel (including UK), without commercials for everyone to have the same experience and have previous episodes on repeat and obviously broadcast new episodes when they come out. It's the greatest show on Earth and something completely unique- so why not? Who's with me...?
