Now it's surprising to see that Clara leaves the Doctor in Mummy on the Orient Express and is independent for a while. Plus Listen sounds like an exciting one and of course the Dalek one as well. The Caretaker sounds like a slightly funnier episode now, plus In The Forest of the Night sounds intriguing involving trees. :)

Great images but is there any way of getting them as a wallpaper of some sort? Because the BBC have seemed quite reluctant lately to bother putting wallpapers on the Doctor Who website compared to previous years and these images seem quite non-existant apart from on these sites as using Google Images to find (Doctor Who Series 8 Wallpaper or Deep Breath) just gives me fan made wallpapers and posters, which although very nice, I'd rather have something official. I'd love the image at the top as a desktop wallpaper, would anyone know where I could download one big enough?

This is always my most anticipated part of a new series after the trailer is released, finding out the episode names. I'm still quite surprised that most of the rumoured names were correct as I thought maybe they would've been different. I do like most of these episode names like 'Into the Dalek', 'Listen', 'The Caretaker', 'In the Forest of the Night' and 'Mummy on the Orient Express' but I don't like the title: 'Kill the Moon' for some reason, it just sounds like it doesn't make much sense, but doesn't mean the episode won't be brilliant. Also surprising to see quite a few of the episode have been co-written by Steven Moffat, as haven't seen that kind of cooperation since the 2009 specials. Looks like Moffat is having a lot more involvement in the stories of this series, so great to see that. I guess he wanted to have some guidance over Steve Thompson and Gareth Roberts, whose episodes aren't bad, but Steve's haven't been so well received by viewers over the last few years.

@Arkleseizure If I'm not mistaken, didn't JNT try to leave at some point probably during the Colin Baker Era but he couldn't because everyone else declined to take his job and he did this several times and ended up staying until the show was cancelled. 

I'm in no rush for Moffat to leave, but I can't completely say that I am a complete fan and fanatic of the man as executive producer probably because I had to get used to switching Executive Producers as this hadn't happened to me before as RTD was my first.

I agree and am also taking this with doubt as I believe she will stay on longer at least into Series 9 halfway. I know she has been the companion for a while now on and off but it doesn't feel that long and I put that down to the fault of the split series because it felt so long between 7A and 7B and then Clara suddenly became the regular companion and had 8 regular episodes with Matt before we waited 6 months till The Day of the Doctor, then The Time of the Doctor and now we've waited 8 months till Series 8 her first proper series so it has felt like she's been here a good while, but she hasn't because she hasn't had a fair share of episodes yet. Compared to Amy as a companion who was there for Series 5 and Series 6 as a whole and half of Series 7 felt like she had a long running duration as a companion because there was less delays in the production. So this concerning Jenna as a companion I put down to the delays which makes me think of Colin Baker's stint as the Doctor (although she'll soon be getting a full run of episodes, but waiting so long felt she had been here ages, but hadn't got a equal amount of episodes yet). This also links to her character development because I feel that I don't know her as well as previous companions like Amy yet so I hope we get to know her better in Series 8 and she becomes a favourite companion for many other people.

I've seen the leaked title sequence (that's as far as I go in terms of spoilers and leaks) and the title sequence itself isn't so bad with references to time that is different and a different vortex, plus the reference to the RTD titles shown in this fanmade version (going from one vortex to another). It's the theme music I don't think I'll adjust to too easily as many have already said it is reminiscient to Dominic Glynn's theme music which I have to admit is my least favourite rendition of the theme. Yes I know it's dark and maybe suiting to Capaldi but I do like the theme tune to me a little upbeat at least like the previous ones were especially 2005-2007. It's just a shame they haven't mixed it with another classic version perhaps which I may have preferred. But I might forgive this if they bring back the middle eight in the closing credits as it was always a pivotal part of it for me a few years ago, but seems a shame to have gotten rid of it just because the BBC want to speed up their credits. It seems people are more concerned with the idea that having a theme tune with less elements of Classic Who in it than restoring the middle eight, which is a shame, but that said it won't stop me watching, no way!

@stargazer0118 This is the bit I noticed when the TARDIS flies out of one vortex to another similar to RTD's title sequence so glad they've incorporated that bit and the titles don't look that bad, it's the new theme music I don't think I'll like.

Great to see an article on Ireland, the home to the relatives on my mother's side. My grandparents (mother's side) come from Ireland and so I have visited a few times to see my other relatives and the tremendous and beautiful sites over there. I know the island is split religiously, but my family resides in the Republic of Ireland and so this is a place I would love to see Doctor Who come and visit to film in and so hopefully it will get some publicity and make Doctor Who a bigger thing over there, which should be deserving as it's a beautiful place to visit and live and the place I would call my second home because any chance I get to over there is a privilege and a novelty, one I will never take for granted.

I've seen them (couldn't resist) and I have to agree that yes they have some similarities to the fan titles, which I had no idea they were planning to base them off this time around. The titles aren't bad themselves I mean I like the 'time' vortex but the clockworks a bit funny but I guess a new idea. I don't really like the theme from what I can hear, seems a bit basic and yes I know they are trying to go back to classic who, but I don't think they should too much, maybe it should've been a bit more upbeat. But the reference to me I like is the TARDIS coming out of one vortex and going into another (reminiscent of the 2005-2010 titles).

I'll believe this anyway as I wasn't expecting him to leave after one series considering what a big fan he is and if I was in his shoes I know I wouldn't, I'd love the show too much to leave so soon.

I'm still quite divided on whether to go and watch the episode in the cinema because it was a surprise to me that they were doing this. It's not like The Day of the Doctor where there wasn't a choice for me and I had to watch it in the cinema whether my life depended on it because it was unique and I would've regretted it if I didn't go. But I'm more surprised by their sudden confidence. I know Doctor Who has been back on air for 9 years now and got audiences and popularity all over the world, but even here in the UK they're suddenly have confident promotion which they didn't have so much of before. It's always risky with the first episode of a new Doctor because you don't know what the audience's reaction and reception will be to the new actor, but suddenly we're getting tons of teasers and trailers even earlier and a cinema release as well. It looks like the BBC are confident of Capaldi before he has even premiered, which is great I suppose, but I don't remember this kind of heavy promotion for the previous few series, which perhaps dragged them down a bit, but no matter, I hope the BBC keeps this up from now one and maybe viewing figures will be even higher than before.

2 weeks, 2 days ago on Does Deep Breath Really Deserve a Theatrical Release?

I do like Clara's character and Jenna as an actress herself because her character is quite cheeky and flirty with the Eleventh Doctor and him being very 'old' meant he was often quite slow on the uptake of the meaning to her euphemisms and whatever so that added to the humour. But I hope Capaldi respects her in the new series as I know he will be different and I will be feeling like her; very weary and suspicious of him until she/I gets used to him again. I do like Clara, but I do feel like her character is undeveloped because I don't feel I know her as well as the former companions: Rose, Martha, Donna and Amy/Rory I guess partly because of their backstories but also because she's only had half a series and the different versions of herself, which although it was good for a new story arc, made it often confusing at times. I hope in series 8 her character is developed a lot more and we get to know her better and like her to her full potential before she eventually leaves.

This looks like a good collection and although I already have two of the episodes, I'd happily buy this, yes annoying that Name of the Doctor is on it, but that was probably inevitable. I don't mind having a second copy of the 50th because I can keep my other copy for best just in case, be nice to have a copy to preserve for the future and show the next generation. Even more tempting is they've decided to include the cinema introductions which is excellent and deleted scenes and readthroughs which is new and very tempting. Plus we also get An Adventure in Time and Space which would be nice to own as I wasn't planning on buying it on a separate DVD. The only downside is it's a limited edition and it seems not one of those limited editions where they just stick them in glossier casing, but where they only make a certain number of copies. That's a shame as I would've happily bought this for Christmas along with Series 8! Hopefully they'll be a way round this and I can still grab a copy for the festive season as it would be a great thing to own and a good route towards owning Time of the Doctor without buying the individual DVD. I just hope they have fixed the audio for The Day of the Doctor last time as the 5.1 audio didn't match up so well last time in my opinion.

I think the latest console that was introduced to Matt's Doctor is purposely designed as a juxtaposition to his character. Yes I know he can be dark and evil sometimes, but he was quite a loving, energetic and childish Doctor even when he had Clara as his companion so the dark lighting of his new console room was like a juxtaposition to his character for me. Same with Capaldi, how we have bright orange lighting, it's juxtaposing his character of a dark and stern Doctor instead. 


My favourite console is the 2005-2010 one because I grew up with it, literally, it's just my era of the show and the TARDIS I was always used to. As much as I've liked the successor designs, they still haven't lived up to the 'original' for me.

@Huknar I agree with this too but I think Moffat thinks Doctor Who has to change regulary to keep up with the times, which I don't completely agree with because RTD kept his design of the console room for the full 5 years he was in charge whereas Moffat changed it after  2 and a half, don't like things changing too often as it takes longer to get used to them again.

@ClaireAbraham @Maiden_Ty_One I have to point out that I was the opposite of this at this point. I didn't immediately react positively with Matt Smith's arrival and first scene and didn't instantly move on like many fans are probably used to doing. It took me until half way through Series 5 or near the finale to fully warm to and like the Eleventh Doctor because the show had changed almost drastically at once, new Doctor, new companion, new showrunner, new titles, new variation of the theme tune, new TARDIS, new sonic screwdriver. I hadn't experienced that completely before. I was still quite young when Doctor Who returned and I discovered the show (I must've been 7) and Eccleston's quick departure meant I was puzzled at what was going on, but carried on to appreciate the show to its full potential as Tennant was the Doctor I became a complete fan and you can forgive me for the realisation that Tennant was the only proper Doctor I knew considering Eccleston hadn't stayed long enough for me to fully appreciate him and once Tennant left the show felt too different because he was all I had known and everything had changed too fast for my liking. 

Yes that's the working of the show and many older fans would be used to this transition but because I wasn't, it took me longer to adapt to everything and accept the Eleventh Doctor as the new one.

So yes you may think fans and such shouldn't mope over what has changed and ended and just get on with the new format, but sometimes it isn't as easy as that, especially if you've been used to something for so long and it's the only thing you've known of during that time, it can be more difficult than usual.

I don't think there will be an anniversary episode for the same reason due to it being too close to the 50th anniversary, but I think they should, like Moffat did during Series 7 put nods to the anniversary like references to the 3 past Doctors and such. But if there was an anniversary I think they should try and bring back Eccleston as a definite and it would be nice to see Tennant back again, although he did appear in the 50th, I imagine he would be enthusiastic for future specials and Matt yes he would like to return but just about 2 years after he left seems a bit soon and Tennant was nearly gone 4 years and I was so excited for his return for the simple reason that he is my favourite Doctor.

My favourite track in Matt's era was 'Sad Man with a Box' because the poignant moments in which it was used.

@Huknar Have to agree here the middle eight is the major disadvantage and I have been pleading with them since 2010 to restore it, but to no avail. That's what is missing in my eyes, I miss having the title sequence build up in the next time trailers and the middle eight blare out over the end credits, instead of 'I Am the Doctor' on constant repeat, it gets tiring eventually.

Finally someone and an article I can relate to. I have an interest in the media and when I first watched Doctor Who (right at the beginning with Rose) I had the most interest in the theme tune and most particulary the title sequence which I loved the blue vortex and the red vortex and the tardis swirling through them. My favourite parts of episodes were always when the theme tune and title sequence came on as that was when I got excited and I even delved into the more refined technical aspects of the title sequence (like whether the BBC logo would appear within the opening pre-title sequence scene or on the title sequence itself or at which timepoint would the episode title appear, if you're very particular like me you'll know they changed it to appear just after the logo has disappeared or after the Tardis moved down in the vortex towards the end, that's how much of an interest it appealed to me, plus the exciting prospect of how many 3D names they would fit into the vortex this week if old companions were reappearing). The 2005-2010 title sequence has always remained my favourite because it always seemed the most straightforward yet the most exciting and best looking, even today plus the rule that became dominant in the RTD era was blue vortex was back in time and red vortex was forward in time and was very easy to understand but once it was changed in 2010, it didn't make sense anymore which was a shame and those titles will always remain my favourite because they were my first and were there in my childhood years of watching Doctor Who with the Tenth Doctor and since then the title sequence hasn't been as creative which is disappointing. The 2010 one never really appealed to me and that was short-lived by Moffat's standards constantly wanting to change things before their time which seemed inappropriate in my eyes. Since the 2012 title sequence made it's debut I haven't really been that interested in it although it was nice to re-establish the face, but otherwise I thought it was quite poorly made and made no impact on the original RTD title sequence and is quite outdated now already, considering we have simple texts names which make it look like it has been made amateurly. Plus the end credits, the animation used from 2005-2010 was beautiful and very creative, the space titles as the camera flew through pieces of the vortex constantly changing colours and nothing was repeated it just went on forever changing as it went, another fixture of mine over the almost 5 years it was used. The 2010-2012 effort was quite appalling. Yes a cloud animation to match the vortex opening credits, but it just kept repeating and had no effort at all and the 2012 title sequence was worse just on a constant repeat and the vortex was red? Why? That clip of the TARDIS flying through the vortex is appalling animation and should never be used again. They need to update the titles and credit animation and put some effort into it this time.


Back on subject, the theme music itself has always been important to me. My personal favourite was the 2005-2007 one (but the more observant fans like me will know they updated it in 2006 to be more upbeat and this is my preferred rendition of this version of Murray Gold's theme music) because it was very exciting and upbeat and made me very excited to watch the upcoming episode. I also liked the version they introduced in Voyage of the Damned, but didn't really like the condensed version that debuted in Partners in Crime, but really liked the full version of the theme that was used in all the next time trailers and the end credits. I loved the trailer beginning with the theme music and running up the bridge to the middle eight and the middle eight blaring out with the end credits and that's one of my main critics of the show since, where is the middle eight gone? Why did they get rid of it? It was used in ordinary fashion in one episode of Series 5 (The Beast Below) and never used again as I decided to use the overused and boring I Am the Doctor in every next time trailer since then and just cut into the regular music without the middle eight and I find it unacceptable to get rid of it and I hope it is restored one day. But I was very happy to see it make a return in The Day of the Doctor, it's just a shame it wasn't permanent. Like with the title sequence, the theme music hasn't been as good since Series 4 as I wasn't a big fan of the Series 5 theme either, but if it had been used in full regulary I might have warmed to it a bit more. The new one introduced although I have liked the improved version, it still doesn't feel as good as it once was and just sounds like a carbon copy of the 2010 theme with a few extra sound effects pasted over the top. I hope if they do make a new rendition of the theme tune, that they restore the middle eight, that's the only thing I ask for and perhaps 'the chase' aspect that Murray Gold incorporated, it sounded brilliant in the 2005-2007 theme and they should have kept that theme really, at least until the end of Tennant's run, it suited the show better and made it a lot more exciting.


A great article by the way, something I whole heartedly agree on!

I'd be happy to have two-parters back which I'm glad they're doing here with Series 8, even if it is just a finale, but I wouldn't want stories of more than two parts, with the exception of Utopia/The Sound of Drums/Last of The Timelords because I would probably eventually get bored of the same adventure and would want it to move onto another one, which is perfect for two parters. I hope for Series 9 if they don't consider bringing back two parters then they should extend the episode length to 60 minutes so there's a bit more air time for the story to wrap up, but I can't see them doing that either.

It will be interesting to see a much darker side to the darker that Capaldi looks like he will provide and is made evident to me when he says 'Into Darkness'. I agree in thinking that he should other positive sides to his personality as well, like maybe what they did with the other Doctors in New Who, have at the beginning of an episode the Doctor and Clara laughing and being happy enjoying themselves then something happens and disrupts the happiness making him turn dark and concerned again, like in Boom Town. As different as I hope he will be, I hope he still has moments like the other Doctor where is fun side emerges for a few seconds and he goes off topic then quickly returns to the serious scenario again.

Looks brilliant and Capaldi looks like a badman in the Tardis sounding a lot like Dr Simeon when he says 'into darkness' telling me he is a bit evil, but all good at the same time. Looks to be epic and I love the TARDIS colour scheme, more preferrable to be than the green/blue hue from before.

@Liana21 I agree with the part where they are sitting down. It makes me think that Capaldi's Doctor will sit her down and ask her whether she think he's a good man, showing that he may still be a very caring and considerate Doctor, caring for his companion's opinion and honesty. Capaldi reminded me a bit of Dr Simeon when he said 'Into Darkness' like he has that sneering dark evil about him, but obviously good at the same time, now the Doctor is a badman. Didn't Vastra say 'Here we go again' or am I misheard? as I think that would be more appropriate because it is another regeneration.

For some reason I've always taken a liking to the Pertwee era, yet Tom Baker, Peter Davidson and Colin Baker's eras have little interest to me. I may watch them, but not with as much enthusiasm as Pertwee. I think being used to the Earth centered stories they produced with him reminded me of the RTD era that I had grown up with so I could relate to it. From the stories I have seen 'Spearhead From Space', 'Terror of the Autons', 'The Time Warrior' and 'Planet of the Daleks' I quite enjoy the setting and atmosphere and makes them interesting to watch, considering I haven't watched that much of Classic Who.

@RhonDOH is getting Six Seasons and a Movie!! Knew this would come up somewhere.

LotsOfPlanetsHaveANorth is right here because humour is subjective, I mean I like many British comedies such as One Foot in the Grave and The Royle Family and even the Chuckle Brothers, but I can't stand American sitcoms as I barely crack a smile. Sorry if I offend any fans of the Big Bang Theory but I think that's the most unfunny show ever made. There's my opinion and I guess Mrs Brown is appealing because it has verbal and physical comedy, maybe the swearing doesn't appeal to everyone, but I do sure enjoy it.

Sounds a lot like me in this article except for liking Star Trek and such probably because it's american. Not saying their shows are bad, but I do dislike them, both Doctor Who and Star Trek are science-fiction so I should like them both, but because Doctor Who is British it's more interesting and iconic. Unless it's a film, I will seldom like American shows.


Back to the subject in hand, I was the same as I watched Doctor Who since its return and was confused by the idea of regeneration, but was instantly hooked by the show and I was very hostile towards Matt Smith when he entered the role but have since grown to like him, but will always have a liking for Ten. This time around I am more optimistic about Peter Capaldi and I am actually looking forward to the new Doctor this time around, probably partially due to the fact that not everything is changing this time because Moffat is still at the helm, not everything is changing this time.

Oh well, even if people aren't immediately satisfied with a child orientated episode of Doctor Who, what difference does it make if it's bad? Maybe it's just one bad episode out of the whole series, which wouldn't be too bad. After all, it's not Doctor Who without maybe one bad episode a year! Plus, I don't like that idea about the characters being turned into children so I hope that isn't true, as this usually doesn't work with TV shows, they did this with ChuckleVision and it worked badly, so I can't imagine it being much better with Doctor Who, although it wouldn't be in my tastes anyway.

@supermoff  @Notsosmartguy  @ahunter8056 I think he should do more as it would he nice to be alive in the presence of a Doctor that lasts longer than the usual 3/4 years. Considering how confident and positive people are towards him in the role, he may end up being popular for longer and hanging on a few years, which would be nice to see if he ends up being a popular Doctor, it would be nice to see one in the role for a continuous number of years like Tom Baker, to me it would just be a new experience.

Surprised to see they got Kate Stewart and Osgood back again. Love the theme of her wearing the bow tie now most likely as a tribute to the recently departed Eleventh Doctor, plus the Tenth Doctor Converse shoes maybe as another tribute sort of? I can imagine her wearing the bow tie in anticipation for the Eleventh Doctor turning up only for him to have regenerated disappointing her and Peter Capaldi's Doctor commenting on her dress sense. That will be funny if I'm correct.
