This series looks absolutely incredible! Such a great mix of episodes, I'm equally excited for all of them... But as much as I love Clara, I think the end of series 8 is her time to go, with almost 2 series under Jenna's belt. Amy and Rory stayed for almost 2 1/2 series and I think they overstayed their welcome. I want an epic, heartbreaking departure for Clara in either the finale or at Christmas!

@YaelMoise Completely agree with your points on Enterprise and Veronica Mars, although I'm as much as a Trekkie and a Marshmallow as anyone could be, I didn't like the change in themes. It made a big, unwelcome difference.

You're so right, it's really important. And I really miss the Series 4 theme as well, easily my favourite!

In my opinion, 2 part stories are always generally more exciting, as you give time to build up both story and guest characters. Series 7 felt incredibly rushed to me, the only show I know that can pull off that crazy fast pace is Scandal. There are exceptions, The Girl in the Fireplace, School Reunion, Blink, Turn Left, The Girl Who Waited etc. but overall the 2 part stories prevail on excitement and pace. And don't get me started on the fantastic cliffhangers we are given!

@CrAzyLAdy12 I tend to think the same, but there's a CBBC show called Wolfblood which could pass as a BBC 1 show if the actors were older, it's fantastic!

Good article, but it's still not a favourite! I don't really understand how I can adore The Unicorn and the Wasp but be not particularly fond of The Lodger/Closing Time when they're both from the same writer. Although, Moffat wrote both The Girl in the Fireplace and The Wedding of River Song so anything's possible I guess.

Kate Stewart, Osgood, Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere, UNIT and Peter Capaldi: AMAZING! Cybermen: Meh... I like the new design but hated the ridiculous abilities they were given in NIS, the scary part of the Cybermen is that they were once us, and that was completely removed by Gaiman.

I like to think that Gallifrey and Earth/Time Lords and Humans are somehow connected, but I'm not sure I'd go this far! Great read and interesting theory though!

@supermoff @Planet of the Deaf Yes but none of Moffat's did either, Amy and Rory died of old age just like Rose, Martha and Donna would, he also managed to bring back River even after her supposed death. No main characters really did die in either series, which I think needs to change, but look at the montage of supporting characters that died in RTD's reign, shown in Journey's End. It really highlights the danger the Doctor puts people in. Again, not taking sides because I love both show runners equally.

@Planet of the Deaf I'm pretty sure it wasn't the only scene, as many other Doctor Who scenes were in that top 250 as well (examples given on the comments page when this news broke).

I like to think that humans descended from Time Lords, and that's why the Doctor loves Earth and the human race so much, they remind him of his own people.

I just hope that even if you don't like this scene, you can appreciate that Doctor Who topped the polls... again. I personally love it, sublime acting from Tennant and Piper, fantastic script from RTD, and perfect scoring from Murray Gold. I also just want to say that I am about obsessed as you can get with this show, and I adore Ten/Rose. There are people who are hardcore fans and ship them, we do exist!

Great article, I quite liked Miracle Day but two things frustrated me. Firstly, I know Sci-Fi doesn't necessarily need aliens, but it is Torchwood, and the lack of anything alien bothered me. Secondly, Jack's immortality (as far as we know) has nothing to do with his blood, it was Bad Wolf Rose, which kind of negates the whole plot of Miracle Day. But as you said, the mystery and the characters certainly make up for that, especially Esther!

Brilliant piece! I have always loved Doctor Who for simple reason. It's Doctor Who. I might disagree that Rose was an awful companion, because I have liked every companion. I might disagree when people say The Name of the Doctor was perfect, but I have enjoyed every episode. This article wonderfully said what needed to be said. That most of the fans are friendly, respectful people. Well done! Oh, and I'm going to say it, I love RTD and Moffat equally ;)

A two part finale really gives time to build up both characters and tension, I thought that Army of Ghosts/Doomsday and The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang did this best. I just hope we get a huge epic end this year (with maybe a heartbreaking goodbye to Clara?)!

I understand that Breaking Bad deserves all the awards it has collected and is called the best TV show of the century so far etc. but this is a BRITISH awards show. Firstly, Breaking Bad is American; secondly, Doctor Who has been running for 50 YEARS!!! If that doesn't deserve a BAFTA I don't know what does...

It's really funny how my opinions differ from 90% of this community, when I consider myself a crazy-psycho-obsessed fan of NuWho. I loved series 2, sure it had some average eps like Fear Her and The Idiots Lantern, and 1 abysmal one (you know which one) but it has some outstanding ones too, School Reunion, The Girl in the Fireplace, The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit and the phenomenal Army of Ghosts/Doomsday. I may be a hardcore Doctor Who fan, but I also loved the Rose/10 relationship, cried like a baby at Doomsday, and cheered when Rose returned in Partners in Crime. And honestly, The Name of the Doctor is one of my least favourite episodes. I love both RTD and Moffat, and will always watch the show. I think Moffat is sublime when writing single episodes mid-series, and RTD knows how to pull out the big guns as a show runner. Kind of desperate to write an 'Argument for... Series 2/Rose Tyler' now...

I'm surprised everyone is overlooking Doomsday. The only finale not to have a Deus Ex Machina or confuse the crap out of me (I'm looking at you RTD and Moffat). An epic scale episode, war on Earth between the Daleks and the Cybermen! And don't even get me started on Rose's send off. The most beautifully heartbreaking piece of television I have ever seen. An epic, heartbreaking episode full of brilliant writing, acting and production, a.k.a an outstanding finale for Doctor Who. Doomsday gets my vote.
