... You know what would be incredibly amazing?! If, instead of getting 13 episodes with a 45 minuites lenght, we had 11 episodes with a 45 minutes lenght AND a 90 minutes long FINALE. That would be...

@TheCapaldiMasterplan @The_Doctor_  I love how everyone (including me) sees a long and prosper future for Doctor Who! I literally can imagine the show going on for at least more 10 years.

@Amy the Consulting Key Ring Thank you very much for your reply. But I have to ask you: you're saying that Rory and Amy would be confined to the "space" of NYC, and they wouldn't be able to leave the city? And not only that, but the Doctor wouldn't be able to reach them, or would them be able to travel through time and space with him again?

I mean, I don't see how Rory and Amy wouldn't be able to phisically leave NYC. But I might be wrong as well.I just think that, maybe, The Doctor could have sent a message to them (as you said, River was able to at least send the book of "Melody Malone"), proposing an encounter outside NY, and then, they would've been brought together again. Just build a fake grave, and that's it.

But, on the other hand, earlier in the episode, we see Rory's grave, so, apparently, he would have died in NY, anyway. I just don't see why he would be confined to the city limits, even with this whole messed-up time-line thing.

Here’s the thing: I can change the future so long as the future has not already been established as part of my own past. I can’t rescue Amy and Rory because I already know that I didn’t."

I don't think that's convincing. If I've got it right, he wouldn't be able to rescue them because he already has seen their graves. But why woudn't he be able to get them out of NYC, travel arround with them, or even let them have their own life, and in the end of their lives, they would be buried in that cemitery that we had previously seen?

@DaftDalek  Although I understand your point, I think what you said in topic 4 is a bit complicated to be done, as Moffat wrote The Day of the Doctor with the intention to change the history: make sure that The (war) Doctor didn't destroy Gallifrey. So, as much as he might have been different from his other incarnations, as he "was made to battle", in the end, he was as good as any other incarnation of the Doctor.

Maybe, John Hurt's Doctor could have been a bit darker in his thoughts and ways, but as the chemistry between both actors and characters in this episode were beyond perfect, I don't think I would change this specific characteristic of the episode.

I'd rate it somewhere between 5 and 6, I think. For me, it was kind of a disappointing episode for many reason: there weren't as many classic Daleks as I expected, the Rory and Amy sub-plot felt quite dull and badly written (really, stop to think about it: couldn't they at least discussed this before they broke up?), and although the idea of the asylum was simply FANTASTIC, I don't think it was completely explored



How I'd have done it (this is just my idea of a more interesting plot): as The Doctor keeps travelling throughout the universe, Rory and Amy's life goes on. Suddenly, in some clever way, The Daleks capture them, and put them inside the Asylum. Meanwhile, The Doctor receives a message from The Daleks, showing that Amy and Rory are in Danger, and they give him 2 choices: or he goes inside the Asylum to fix the faults that are occuring in the Asylum's barriers/force field, without his Tardis, or he Goes away and let them die. Of course, he choses the first one, and so, abou 1/3 of the episode is spent inside the Dalek asylum, with both The Doctor and the Ponds separated. As The Doctor tries to find them, he meets and gets the help of Oswin (she could have heard him somehow and communicated with him along the way, sort of helping him, something like that), while the Ponds find thenselves in some very hard situations where they have to get away from many insane Daleks, who tries to kill them at all coast. Between 15 and 10 minutes to the episodes ending, The Doctor and The Ponds are brought togheter *funny, happy moment* The Doctor goes saving Oswin, the whole scene proceeds like in the original episode, Oswin erases The Doctor from the Daleks minds (well, that's an optional) and lower the defenses of the Asylum.

.




The Doctor then finally activates the sequence of auto-destruction of the Asylum, .with his screwdriver, he brings the Tardis by "remote control" (maybe, something that he would have done previously, and that we didn't see onscreen). They get away before The Asylum explodes, killing all the Daleks inside it, and damaging the Daleks spaceships next to the asylum.



I don't think I would have included the Dalek Puppets, or the scenes outside the Asylum. I'd try to make the episode more "claustrophobic", with more tension, and I would include more scenes with genuinely scarry Daleks.

Those are just some of my ideas   :D

I wonder if Steven Moffat would leave with Capaldi still in the role of The Doctor. I barely have watched the classic era, so I don't know if it already happened of the headwriter change and the same Doctor stay. It hasn't happened yet in modern Who. I wonder if this would interfere too much in the tone and writing of the current Doctor (probably, Capaldi). I genuinely  wouldn't mind Moffat arround the next couple of years. At least right now.
