Absolutely hate Series 7: Part 2. The stories were boring. They lacked depth and ambition. Writing at times was lazy. The villains weren't that great. It all felt like too much change at once. The only ones I will really give time to are Journey, Crimson and pieces of Name. For me the music saved this run and Smith's fabulous acting. Clara got more annoying and, oh I could go on forever...

If Smith was to ever return in the future for a special (which he most probably will) I want him to have the Series 7: Part 1 look. It's just perfect. And I absolutely love Series 7: Part 1 for the record, every episode to me is perfect (except obviously the ending of TPOT).

@Baker Street is excited for Series 8! An interesting idea could be that we get a teaser for each episode. Like the 'movie' posters for Series 7, but taken to a new level...

What a great article, and you know what, I completely agree with everything. I do love The Time of the Doctor, more so than The Day of the Doctor. It's just personal preference. I thought the entire episode from start to finish held a steady pace and I felt ready to say goodbye to the Eleventh Doctor (yes Moffat, I used numbers- bite me). The regeneration at first annoyed me because it felt fragmented (the clock tower energy, then the snap change in the TARDIS) but then I remembered- it was a new regeneration cycle, things are bound to be different with this process. I also get goosebumps when I read or watch 11's final lines, they ring so true in real life. The only thing I don't like about the hallucination of Amy is the the fact that the TARDIS is littered with them stupid children's drawings. Completely unnecessary, even in the previous scene beneath the clock tower. And lastly, I felt we had just enough of Capaldi's Doctor (there, is that better Moffat?) which was very tantalising and that cliffhanger where he seems to have lost his memory is fantastic...

@Kylephantom4 For it to be shown in cinemas in the first place, it has to be feature length, which has to be at least 40 minutes, but Deep Breath is actually at least 75 minutes.

I completely agree with this. I think we should have a special to commemorate the first major anniversary of the revival. Why not? Smith is eager to return, so that's at least two Doctor's...I'm not that bothered about Tennant anymore- his effect has wore off and I was slightly disappointed by his return last year. Eccleston however is another thing entirely. Getting him to come back after 10 years is a big challenge. As for the companions, hopefully Clara will have gone and the Doctor is alone again so it can just be him (12) and his former selves, however many there are... The villain should be something completely new though and something happens that sets up for future series...

Am I the only one hoping for the Paradigm Daleks to return? I know they were controversial, but they haven't had a full appearance since, well, their only full story- Victory of the Daleks in 2010, over 4 years ago! Various cameos aside, I feel we need to see more of them and what they are really about. After all, they cleansed the bronze Time War Daleks and now they seem to be the only Daleks around. I have always wondered about the continuity of when they escaped in their ship at the end of Victory...perhaps this can be picked up on sometime in the future (I'm looking at you Gatiss, don't let Moffat write another Dalek story...) *ducks for cover*

@The Genie Well, there is actually nothing to say that he isn't the Master anymore. His fate from the events of The End of Time is still to be decided as we saw no apparent regeneration or 'death'. All we know is that Simm's incarnation went 'back into the Time War, back into hell' and is presumably still existent, trapped with the other Time Lords.

For me, the next Master HAS to be Steve John Shepherd. Although, I think Dance would be a great casting for the role. But I think in contrast with an older Doctor, we need to see a slightly younger Master, say someone in their 40's...

Unfortunately, it's a kind of obligation that the Daleks appear at least once every series since the revival. But let's be honest, Doctor Who isn't the show it is without the Daleks, is it? All stories need is to feature them entirely, and not as cameos. New writers need to have a chance and more two parters aloud to flesh out well planned stories.

Capaldi? 10 years? Good luck to him. I don't really want to see the 8th Doctor return. His short lived time on screen should stay that way. Put it this way, all the surprises of the 50th year were a one off. He doesn't need to return. Besides, the way McGann portrays him is very wooden.

I have absolutely no time for this dreadful episode. The story was dull. By the end, I wanted to shoot Craig Owens. Alfie got in the way. (Sorry, Stormy). The only thing I would stretch to like was the 'cliffhanger' at the end. And as I've said before, the Silence would have been better suited as the villains of this story- drawing electricity...

@Huknar @Master Michael Moon Well, if we think about it, technically what is starting in August should be Series 9. I really don't know why there wasn't a full series in 2012, and even 2013, because Series 7 was split over those two years and felt very fragmented. I would like a series in this format mentioned above over a summer, a bit like Miracle Day.

@SteviePenny And think, after every episode, we get a cliffhanger! It would be like all the two parters at once, except it would one massive 10 parter (I don't think a 13 parter would work) and it would probably mean hour episodes, giving the story time to develop. YES. I want this!

I have to say, after recently getting into 24, I love the format of that. I suppose the only relatable example to Doctor Who would be Torchwood: Miracle Day. 10 one hour episodes covering the same story really worked. Perhaps Doctor Who could go back to the classic format to shake up a future series and see what the viewing figures are like...

@Amy is Hannibal The only finale title I never really liked was 'The Big Bang'. 'Eye of the Storm' would have suited it better. I do hope to see an episode titled as the latter one day. And as for 'Death in Heaven', it screams irony- but it might not be as literal as that- and besides, is probably a working title. I always liked 'The Last Cyberman' until it got changed to the dreadful 'Nightmare in Silver' (bad title, worse episode).

@Notsosmartguy  @Master Michael Moon @Malohkeh I think the Master is going to return in Series 8, if not, then definitely Series 9. I think people are going to see it coming that the Master is returning, but as a man. I highly doubt if Moffat will change the sex of the Master. It's just like the Doctor. He has always been a man, it can't change now...

@Malohkeh Highly unlikely. Possibly the Rani, but again a bit unlikely. And let's be honest, would the role of the Master really suit a woman? I think that's why the Rani was created in the first place, that's like a female Master- then the Doctor has an arch enemy comprising of both genders then...

Right. Well, I'm happy for Kate and UNIT, but not Osgood. She was incredibly annoying. Let's hope these Cybermen, sort her out. As for the silver sentients themselves, I am actually happy to see their return and the re-design has grown on me. I just hope they are more than a good old Moffat cameo and are the main enemy in this story.
