6 hours, 30 minutes ago on 51 Years Later: 5 Ways to Make the Daleks Menacing Again
@supermoff ... ... Supermoff for next show-runner please! And Clara, desperate to help her Doctor, realises the only way to stop another Time War is to go through to the pocket universe and seal the breach, which means she leaves the Doctor for good... but she arrives on Gallifrey and decides to start a new life there, leaving the door open for a return in the 60th anniversary!
11 hours, 6 minutes ago on 51 Years Later: 5 Ways to Make the Daleks Menacing Again
@supermoff Yeah I love that idea! I think the Series 9 finale should be about a Dalek civil war, with the Doctor (and Clara ideally) caught in the crossfire. I would imagine that would be Jenna's last episode, and would provide an epic, interesting, heartbreaking, and rather fitting end for Clara. ... And then I'd like Moffat to weave in Missy and Gallifrey somehow that'd be great thanks! :P
11 hours, 16 minutes ago on 51 Years Later: 5 Ways to Make the Daleks Menacing Again
I like the idea of not hearing 'exterminate' so much, so that when you hear it, you know someone is almost definitely going to die. I'd also like to see Davros return at some point, and I agree it would help if someone important was exterminated.
For me personally, I'd like to delve into the Dalek's culture, I thought the Cult of Skaro was an excellent idea, and would like things like that to be explored.
I'm also anticipating a Series 9 Dalek finale. If Jenna stays for all of Series 9, then I think it would be quite fitting if her first and last episodes featured the Daleks... but I want Missy back as well!

The Christmas Invasion. Brilliant story, brilliant performances, and very Christmassy! Love it XD
1 day, 7 hours ago on Festive Face-Off: The End of Time vs The Christmas Invasion
I don't understand these ridiculous complaints! Doctor Who is meant to be scary, it always has been! While my parents will have been hiding behind the sofa from the Daleks and the Cybermen, I was clutching a cushion in front of my face when the Weeping Angels first appeared when I was 8. And I love being scared, it's why Halloween is one of my favourite times of year. I sure as hell won't be complaining about Last Christmas. Well, unless Clara leaves, obviously...
1 day, 16 hours ago on Last Christmas Allegedly “Too scary” for Kids
Yeah that is pushing it a bit too far... :/
1 day, 20 hours ago on Festive Face-Off: The End of Time vs Voyage of the Damned
Haha to be fair that was a forced regeneration! Not sure I'd like that, at least 10 had some warning! :P
@supermoff Thank god you feel the same, my family think I'm weird because I want Santa to be a total BAMF and take down some face crabs...

@YaelMoise Out of interest, which line is that?
2 days, 7 hours ago on Festive Face-Off: The End of Time vs Voyage of the Damned
@SWTV I'm just glad the Christmas spirit hasn't ruined your constant doom and gloom trickery, I feel like I'd miss it...
Well thank you for making my heart stop for a second DWTV, I can always rely on you for a daily death scare, whether it be me or my favourite characters...
@supermoff Yeah that was pretty awesome! I'm a sucker for a circular narrative and you know I love Rose so that's probably most of it... XD
@ilyootha, agent of C.L.A.R.A. At least Matt won most people over (including me) after The Eleventh Hour, because it was difficult to say goodbye to Tennant the way RTD wrote it.
@Clara Bosswald That's exactly how I feel about it. 'Sometimes I think a Time Lord lives too long.' - I felt with that line, 10 should have accepted his death in the end, rather than whining about not wanting to go.
2 days, 8 hours ago on Festive Face-Off: The End of Time vs Voyage of the Damned
@supermoff I agree it ran too long, but I love some of the scenes in the tour, heck, two of them nearly made me cry, and one did! The fact that Sarah Jane gives a tearful wave, almost knowing what was about to happen was brilliant, and Verity asking if the Doctor if he was happy was ironically very sad.
And that simple scene between the Doctor and Rose, so beautiful, so perfect, it made me cry. She doesn't even know who he is, and we circle back to 2005 when an ordinary, young, naive girl met an extraordinary man. Also the beautiful concept (Moffat originally?) that the first time she saw him was the last time he saw her, as well as the first face/last face idea. I just love it with all my heart, that was the perfect goodbye to Rose for me.
But it's the mysterious woman who keeps me interested in these episodes. I know it sounds ridiculous but I just can't shake an odd feeling that I get when Wilf asks the Doctor who she was, the camera focuses on Donna. He looks at her and doesn't say anything. Obviously doesn't work, and it's much more plausible that it's his mother, but I kind of like it...
Hmm... The End of Time for me. The Master was a bit ridiculous, and I would have liked it better if 10 had accepted his death, rather than whining about it, but overall, a wonderful send off. Wilf was amazing, as was the mysterious woman, and I loved that the Time Lords returned, such a shocking cliffhanger! I also secretly love 10's farewell tour, all of the scenes are beautiful and really emotional, especially Sarah Jane's, Verity's, and Rose's. A great send off for Mr Tennant.
I honestly don't like the non-Christmassy specials as my Christmas special. Don't get me wrong, I love The End of Time and The Time of the Doctor, but that's due to their emotional stories, not because they're set at Christmas. I also think the Victorian Gothic winter setting is brilliant, and really adds to the Christmas feel. And weirdly, I love two specials which are almost polar opposites, A Christmas Carol and The Christmas Invasion. Very different, but both brilliant stories. Looks like an episode with the word 'Christmas' in does well with me, so I'm looking forward to this one!
3 days, 6 hours ago on The Christmas Conundrum
@Antee991166 Haha I find the angels lifting 10 the most ridiculous, over-dramatic, eye-rolling part of it, and that's saying something when it comes to Voyage! Worst part of the episode for me. Although I did like Astrid's character, and Kylie Minogue played her well.
3 days, 11 hours ago on Festive Face-Off: Voyage of the Damned vs The Next Doctor
The Next Doctor for me. Voyage of the Damned is just a tad too depressing for a Christmas special, and it was fun to see Cybermen in the snow in the former!
@supermoff Oh forgot that the Hervoken use magic just like the Carrionites! I like it when Doctor Who explores the supernatural, and the power of words was an interesting concept. 'Your heart grows cold. The north wind blows, and carries down the distant... Rose?' Love that scene! XD
4 days, 8 hours ago on Festive Face-Off: The Christmas Invasion vs The Runaway Bride
@supermoff Apparently the novel 'Forever Autumn' with 10 and Martha goes into detail about the Hervoken, arch enemies of the Carrionites, and are a cross between Slenderman and Halloween pumpkins!
@Antee991166 Which is a shame because I love the idea of creatures from the Dark Times! Like the Carrionites, the Hervoken, the Racnoss, the Eternals, the Mandrogora Helix... really interesting concept, especially the use of magic! It just was never executed properly.
The Christmas Invasion for me! Love this episode, one of my favourite Christmas specials. It had to prove that Doctor Who at Christmas could work, and at the same time introduce a new Doctor, which was a hard task. However, it definitely succeeded. Great script, excellent performances from David (when he was awake!), Billie and Penelope Wilton. The Runaway Bride was good too, but The Christmas Invasion gets my vote.
I'd say The Eleventh Hour, Vincent and the Doctor, The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang, then The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon, A Good Man Goes To War, The Girl Who Waited and The God Complex. The Matt Smith era was a wonderful fairytale, hope you enjoy! :)
4 days, 13 hours ago on No Series 9 Story for Neil Gaiman
I loved Cornell's episodes, very emotional! The Rings of Akhaten is beautiful, and Hide was scary and fun, so Cross should come back. And Mathieson has been simply superb, these three MUST return
Oh for the love of Missy PLEASE let those three writers return for Series 9!!!
*Secretly hoping it ties into the Series 9 arc*
Ok I'll be honest here. I really liked The Doctor's Wife, but it's nowhere near my favourite. Not even in my top 3 Series 6 episodes, and I'm not a fan of Nightmare in Silver. He's a great writer, but there are many others that I'd like to see return before him... *ducks from angry Whovians*
@supermoff Oh bloomin' hell I missed 10, Martha and Jack! One of the best ever!
5 days, 6 hours ago on 4 Different Types of Companions Doctor Who Should Consider
@supermoff Oh definitely, I think the Doctor, an alien companion, and a human from the past would be a bit much XD Yeah TARDIS trios are amazing! 9, Rose, Jack; 10, Rose, Sarah Jane; 10, Martha, Donna; 11, Amy, River; 11, Amy, Rory! So many...
5 days, 7 hours ago on 4 Different Types of Companions Doctor Who Should Consider
@supermoff I know, right?! I love modern Clara, but Victorian Clara would have been really interesting and was a fantastic character. Also it would have given them an excuse as to why they constantly went back to Victorian times in Series 7/8...
Woops! Forgot to say, excellent article! A lot of interesting ideas...
While I like the concept of different companions, I quite like the modern day human norm, as you said, it tends to make them more relatable. However it would be interesting to see what route they'd take if they did do one of these... I think I'd like a companion from the past or an alien... or maybe both! But for now, I'm happy with the 'Earth girls' (and perhaps an Earth boy in Series 9?)...
Nope... you heard right... little confused myself...
1 week ago on Weird and Wonderful
Haha Michelle Gomez is bananas! Love the collage, they included everyone important, and Sarah Jane twice! I love that on either side of the War Doctor you have the Moment and Rose, nice thought gone into that. I really love all of these fan posters as well, some people are so talented!
@mrclever is waiting to be approved Except the 5 Doctors Reboot! ... even though she was... anyway I think she's an incredible actress, and could definitely pull off the role of the Doctor!

@Gustaff Well there was the flirting with Jack... and the whole 'robot boyfriend' business...
@The Lazy Cat is Santa Paws Olivia Colman hands down.
@LGwalchmai95 Tell me about it these last few episodes have been incredibly brutal and dark!
1 week, 1 day ago on Moffat on Criticisms that Doctor Who Is Too Dark
You know it's not always a bad thing to expose kids to dark themes. Either it goes over their heads, or they learn that things aren't always perfect, which unfortunately it isn't in life. I don't think Series 8 was too dark, even if it was the darkest Doctor Who of the modern era. I absolutely loved it and its exploration of some of the consequences and dark nature of travelling with the Doctor, so did my 11 year old sister. I mean Flatline, Listen and Dark Water were her three favourites, some of the darkest the series produced!
@Antee991166 Worst RTD: Love and Monsters (5/10), worst Moffat: The Wedding of River Song (6/10)...
1 week, 2 days ago on Last Christmas New Clip
@supermoff wants Clara in Series 9 for Christmas! Similar to my list really...
@Notsosmartguy Agent of C.H.R.I.S.T.M.A.S. Haha hardly controversial on this site! I like it for nostalgia reasons and epic-ness, but I do understand the criticism.
@supermoff wants Clara in Series 9 for Christmas! So what's your worst episode of all time? Mine's either The Rebel Flesh/The Almost People, Journey to the Center of the TARDIS, or Love and Monsters... :/
@supermoff wants Clara in Series 9 for Christmas! Oops my mistake! But yeah 2.3... I understand why, but wow. RTD's best for me was Turn Left, a solid 10/10. But Moffat still manages to beat that with an 11/10 for Day of the Doctor... ;-P
@supermoff wants Clara in Series 9 for Christmas! Blimey must be a very low score from you, you didn't give what you thought was RTD's best episode (Midnight) higher than an 8.3! Haha ;-P
@Antee991166 Haha don't worry, putting our tree up tomorrow so I'm sure that'll reignite my passion for it!
@supermoff wants Clara in Series 9 for Christmas! I think both sides of the argument are valid, you have The Christmas Invasion, which is really just Doctor Who set at Christmas but the Christmas element works well, whereas it doesn't really work a second time in The Runaway Bride. Then you have the wonderfully Christmassy A Christmas Carol, very different but excellent in the fact it weaves Christmas into the plot, but again, it doesn't work a second time in The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe. But Last Christmas seems to have elements of both, so we'll see where it goes...
@Antee991166 Well now I feel like a bad person. I kind of embarrassingly adore Christmas even though it is just another day of the year... :(
