As strange as I thought it was at the time not to include new music for Day of the Doctor I later realised it made sense to reuse old tracks because it was the 50th anniversary and a chance to go over some of the old nostalgic tracks from the last 8 years of the show. I realise there was supposed to be new tracks featured on this soundtrack, I was a bit disappointed to see they had omitted some of the tracks I liked for example the Sad Man With a Box variation used in the penultimate moment where the War Doctor says farewell to his other incarnations. I know it's basically the version featured on the Series 5 Soundtrack but it was condensed down and didn't have the choir on it and I loved this version, which unfortunately could be isolated properly because it has echoes of the voices in it, which was annoying and a shame it wasn't featured on this soundtrack. I've listened to a few of the tracks and love the variation of when the Doctors were supposed to come out of the painting as well as Song For Four which I recognised from Deep Breath and the 11th Doctor's phone call to Clara.


I will be having this soundtrack on my Christmas list definitely this year!

My first was Christopher Eccleston who got me interested in the show, but it was David Tennant who full implemented me as a proper fan considering Eccleston only stayed one series and I believe that wasn't effective enough for me to remain completely interested in the show. But Tennant completely hooked me in and that is why he has remained my Doctor. His energy, cheekiness, enjoyment and serious and sadness just made me fall in love with his Doctor and he became my idol in a sense of what the Doctor should be. Let me tell you, during his era of the show I wouldn't miss the show for anything, whether that be a family occasion, a day out or if the world was coming to an end, I would do anything to get home and watch it. It was so appealing to me then that I couldn't miss it thanks to the 10th Doctor. Since Matt Smith came along that excitement and determination waned, not because of him necessarily but perhaps due to growing up or the realisation that my favourite or my Doctor had left and the show just didn't have that ultimate excitement it formerly had (just my opinion by the way).

Happy Birthday, Doctor Who! It's amazing that it's been a year since my venture down to the cinema to watch The Day of the Doctor in 3D. What a privilege it was! It's amazing to think a show as simple and miraculous as this has lasted 51 years, considering not many shows that do that (except for the likes of Blue Peter and Coronation Street but both don't have a par on you!) It's also an achievement of mine to be committed to a show for 9 years and I'm proud to still be here. I hope you keep being so successful and get to your centenary. 


Happy Birthday to the best show in the world! Happy birthday Doctor Who!

Good, about time to have a Doctor that stayed a little bit longer. Tom stayed 7 years and no one complained, so why should they with Capaldi?

@Huknar That's hardly fair. Amy was in it for at least 35 episodes which seems like a long time from this angle and I didn't see anyone complaining. Would be nice to see Clara meet her record or surpass it perhaps.

Well that's slightly more reassuring in the sense that we somewhat have a clear answer to her future on the show hanging in the balance down to her signing a contract for the next series. But here's me believing Moffat, like my usual gullable self, which I will continue to do so because it's a more genuine sounding answer than what the press are saying at least. 


I do hope she stays at least halfway into Series 9. It was a bit unfair on her considering she started her proper tenure half way through a series (series 7b) resulting in her starring in 1.5 series. And due to the differences in the Moffat era, a companion should be expected to fulfil the standard run of 2 series at least (which Amy and Rory got, plus a little bit extra) which Jenna should be able to fulfil here. I'd like to see a new record in the longest tenure of a companion in the new show. Amy currently holds the record at 2.5 series, which Clara could meet if she stayed an additional series. Just like I'd like to see Capaldi in the running for the longest tenure of a Doctor in the new series (currently held by David Tennant at nearly 5 years) because it would be something new, an experiment that we haven't seen in the show before.


But come on Jenna, ignore the haters. Stay for Series 9, please!

I have enjoyed Series 8. But it's definitely not been the best (my own opinion). I still need to get used to Capaldi fully and hopefully Series 9 will accommodate that. Glad to see the series was a triumph though and that ratings are retaining and even improving, especially as the show is becoming immensely popular internationally. Can see it running for another 10 years at this rate. It's nearly done 10 (amazingly) and here's to another ten. This show can run for 100 years, whether televised or through other merchandise like it did before. I can't wait for the Christmas special and Series 9. It's gonna be brilliant!

As much as I like and respect Peter Capaldi now, I believe he is asking a bit too much for a complete overhaul of other assets. Yes I know he has Matt's TARDIS and sonic screwdriver but I still believe they should keep them at least for the next series or two, in regards to the TARDIS console. The current TARDIS has only been used for half of series 7 and series 8, so 1.5 series. Not enough considering Matt's first console lasted 2.5. series and Tennant's 4.5/5 years. I think it should be kept for another series or two so it gets a good run and good use without wasting money on another one. I thought it was a waste the last time around doing this as I didn't think Matt's one had been used long enough along with his title sequence which Moffat obviously couldn't wait to change. Moffat changes things too often and I know that's what the show is about but I hate things changing too often and it just changes the show too much and makes it a tad slightly unwatchable each time. I mean he introduced a pointless title sequence for series 7b when it was only used for 10 episodes in the end, not even a full series worth! A complete waste of money I believe. Furthermore, as much as I appreciate a hark back the classic era with elements being included in the last couple of series, I don't want a complete overhaul back the 60s. We have enough elements now, the older Doctor, the retro titles and theme music and the classic looking TARDIS. We don't need anyone else. If the show is brought right back to the classic era then it will put me off. I know that sounds like I might not be a true Whovian but there will be nothing modern left in my opinion, except the special effects to distinguish the two eras of the show. 


I want to retain what we have now, a good mix between old and new, even if Capaldi is at the helm.

I like the 'Jesus' resolution as it's so called. I thought it was a brilliant moment that the Doctor could be brought back to form through thought. I mean when did Doctor Who actually have to make sense? The show would be boring otherwise. The music in that scene is amazing and I thought it was an epic finale. Utopia is still the best part though, amazing introduction of the Master. Definitely beats Moffat's version (whoops I criticised him), as good as it was initially.

Good to hear! Doctor Who's been a pivotal part of Children in Need since it returned and I like either having a minisode or a Christmas Special preview which we've had since 2008 (last year being a preview clip for Day of the Doctor. Can't wait for this, it's gonna be an exciting one.


As for the references to Clara leaving I'm sure they would've announced by now or very shortly that she will be departing in the Christmas episode like they did with Amy and Rory. Unless Moffat is changing the rule-book and keeping the character's exit and a new companion's entrance completely secret up until the episode airs? But seems unlikely. They would've cast and announced a new companion by now wouldn't they? Especially as Series 9 starts filming in January presumably. Unless the Doctor is going to go solo for a few episodes, which would be interesting to see for a change (a bit like the 2008-2010 specials).

I presume Santa meant when he said 'shy' as in Clara because it made sense as Santa would watch over everyone and know what is happening and he would know the Doctor well, but the Doctor might not know him as mutually. I presume he is referring to Clara as he said 'she's not ok and neither are you' which would make sense if she is listed as being in the Christmas special. Maybe he takes her on one more adventure on Santa's orders? I don't believe there is any other explanation for it. Clara's story's definitely not done, you can tell, if she only has one more episode then it will be rounded off in the Christmas special.

@The Trickster's Brigade, Agent of T.R.I.C.K.S. Was Dalek the only one in Series 1 to get a 12 certificate? Because as I recall on the individual vanilla DVD releases Volume 1 was also rated 12 as well which I presume was for The Unquiet Dead. I agree many certifications are outrageous and perhaps should be classed lower or higher. It would've been interesting and great to see another PG rated boxset of Doctor Who since there have only been two since the reboot (Series 3 and Series 5). But seems logical considering 12 is the most common certificate used.

@The Lazy Cat Needs Her Inhaler I'd quite like that to be honest. Would be a different change. I mean have Clara leave in the middle of Series 9 like Amy and Rory during Series 7 but without the split. Would like to see the Doctor travel alone for an episode ot two before eventually finding a successor in a companion and taking them with him. Would be a change from the usual 'leave at the end of the series' tradition. But again seems unlikely. I hate this denial and constant tension. Whenever it's the upcoming episode or possibility that a companion or Doctor will leave I always get very tense. It's going to be a struggle of a day tomorrow.

@10thfan Agreed. The usual Moffat standard of the unexpected when it comes to deciding the fate of a character. Was a big shock and felt a lot of sympathy for Clara at that moment. Nice to see her gran back again though, added to the emotion of the scene. Huge reveal of the Master was also unexpected. My head was going through all the possible Time Lords from the classic series that it could have been like Romana or the Rani. But of course it was the Master. That's Moffat twisting his lies again claiming the Master wasn't coming back. Why do I always believe him?!

I'm quite surprised as I didn't see this coming. Considering a lot of the music was reused/remixed and all which I have no problem with as I love the nostalgia of old tracks. I most anticipate a lot of them on the Day of the Doctor soundtrack as it seems they are including a lot of the remixes and tracks already released, like the constant repeats of Majestic Tale, which I have no problem with, I love that track. One I really hope I include, most probably will be included in the final track: Song For Four/Home is the Sad Man With a Box variation which was identical to the original but was a more condensed version and featured less of the piano and I loved that version as well as the original included on the Series 5 soundtrack. I expect it will be included considering it lead up to the War Doctor's regeneration and I hope it's the original included in the televised episode, which I expect it would be because why would they include anything different? 


Look forward to the tracks and will hopefully download some of them digitally (which I've only just started to do lately).

Considering how little we know about the finale, this could be a trailer for both parts or just one, and I suspect just one, can't see Moffat teasing both, but you never know...

@Mockridge Or one in a long line of Doctors since the reboot since they all generated success in their own respective eras and all I have enjoyed immensely, even Capaldi I'm starting to fully pick up on now. Capaldi's first series will be the most successful in the technological area of the show (Catch-up services, digital downloads, cinema showings, DVR recordings etc. To add to the ratings), like Tennant's was (Series 4) in the still terrestrial era of the show (when most people still watched the show live on TV and bought the DVD after). But it's still great to see the show retaining its viewing figures and to keep on being successful nine years in to its reboot, which would be considered unusual for many other shows, so quite an achievement.

Surprisingly quite enjoyed this episode after it didn't look very appealing from the trailer and the outset. But the episode itself was quite good, in some unusual way. The Doctor had a good part and I'm really starting to enjoy him now, which is usual as it takes me this long to appreciate Doctors in their first series. Good episode, but the finale looks brilliant.

Hard to say to be honest because if someone asked me 'Do you like Clara?' I wouldn't know what to say because I don't have a clear opinion on her character like her predecessors. Must be because of the split series and her occasional appearances then her permanent role in the show and I've never fully appreciated her although she is a good character and I liked her role in Series 7, but not Series 8 as much. As for the Doctor until his 'I am the Doctor' moment last week I don't think I fully appreciated him and I don't get how other people did straight away, might just be me and my fear of change each time.

@CapDoctor Because quiz shows like Pointless are only shown once and will never probably be seen again (that particular edition). Doctor Who, shown constantly for decades to come.

Doctor Who will have a long-lasting legacy.

@AlexOsirisGlass @Clara Laurinda @DeathInHeaven I appreciate the idea of harking back to the classic series but I won't appreciate it if they went too far in a sense otherwise they might put me off. Considering what I've been used to in the last eight years with Who before Capaldi came along it was always going to be difficult to adapt to a 'classic era' type format but I don't want them to go too far otherwise I won't appreciate the show either. I know that doesn't sound like a proper Whovian but I'm just making my point, I'll still keep watching, just want them to keep some elements of the RTD/Moffat era style we've been used to in previous years.

This one doesn't really appeal to me. Got nothing against the children but the plot looks quite pointless from this aspect. I know they don't want to give anything away but I'd rather see some sinister or 'catch' aspect to this episode to make it look more exciting. Oh well I suppose there's got to be one poorish episode in each series.

Nice cover like the gold cogs and the Doctor and Clara's poses, always presumed they would keep it like the original amazon picture because half of the promotional TBC DVD covers they include on sites like Amazon turn out very similar to the official one, so nice to see a change. As for special features, I was expecting the Deep Breath prequel also but I've seen it since and it's not much to think about but it would've been a nice addition, but guess they want to keep it exclusive to the Deep Breath vanilla release. Don't mind the lengthy documentaries but they seem unnecessary to be because it's not something I'm personally interested in. As long as they're British ones (which it sounds like with Peter Davison involved) rather than American ones, but with no offence to them, I'd rather keep documentaries focused on a British show focused on its country of origin. Look forward to its release and it will be going on the Christmas last and hope to have it on my shelf along with the 50th Anniversary Collectors Edition also.

9/10 a brilliant episode and I much preferred it to last week's giving of Kill the Moon which yes was a good episode, but I just found it more boring, whereas this one was a lot more upbeat and enjoyable, kept me entertained. The Mummy was quite creepy and was interesting to see it carry out each death, even though the first one was the most effective, the others were good to show the Doctor trying to work out what it was. The ending was slightly confusing on revealing what the Mummy was but it may become more clear after a second viewing. I was surprised to see Clara step out of the TARDIS with the Doctor at the beginning as I thought we'd see some confrontation with them both before he decides to take her on this adventure. I didn't recognise her at first with the way she was dressed up and how she appeared but must say she looked particularly beautiful (as usual) and suited to the era featured on the train. It was quite tense to hear that she was going on a 'farewell tour' adventure with the Doctor as she obviously did want to stop after the adventure, but glad she suddenly decided to stay in the end and it was nice to see the Doctor with a genuine smile as he was glad to see she actually wanted to stay as it was made obvious throughout the episode that he was gutted she had decided to leave. Also, interesting to see her act as a 'companion' for once by having a limited role with the Doctor in charge of fixing the problem, which should helpfully shut up some of the moaning fans for a while, although only temporarily. 

A great episode and definitely one of the best of the series so far. 9/10

As much as it was a good episode I have to say I didn't enjoy it that much to be honest. The spider creatures weren't that scary and I didn't find it that interesting except when the Doctor decided to leave and we were all shocked by his careless attitude but it turned out he did it to be beneficial to them. The best part of the episode indeed was Clara's outburst towards the Doctor and it really engaged me seeing her pour out her emotions of her unappreciation for the Doctor leaving her/them like that and she just stormed out. Definitely saved the episode for me but aparr from that wasn't the best. Except for noticing the continued use of a particular piece of music in the episode which I can narrow down to being the Twelfth Doctor's Theme, which I like so far as it sounds a lot like the Tenth Doctor's theme. Plus the continued use of the Series 4 sting is much appreciated to give a nod to the past compared to that awful one the new theme was originally packaged with. 

I have to admit, so far this series is definitely not the best in New Who history and it is getting a bit overhyped, but it is still good, just not in all places and episodes. Series 4 still tops the poll for me.

As with Matt Smith I will probably be fully used to and appreciative of Peter Capaldi by the series finale and hopefully be used to his Doctor by then.

8/10 - I quite enjoyed this one a nice funny episode and I couldn't help laughing at the Doctor being rude at Danny and Courtney ('Shut up!' and 'Get lost!' respectively) and this is definitely his catchphrase now and it seems to quite suit him with his rude and uncaring attitude towards people. Glad to see the continued use of the Derbyshire/Series 4 sting in the theme tune, gives the episode a much better and exciting effect, just like it used to be. Still not that keen on Danny or bothered about him so I'll just put up with him and I liked the scene where the Doctor thought she had picked the boyfriend that looked like his predecessor and he was quite happy with it and only wanted her to be happy, like the father figure he now is. Loved the music reference of Sad Man With a Box added to the scene with The Doctor, Clara and Danny, it was quite moving hearing it again for the first time. Could it have been a tribute or reference to an episode designated for the Eleventh Doctor perhaps?

I never liked Graham Norton, he was always a bit too crazy for my liking. Even watching him in Father Ted is annoying so maybe I'll catch the interview when it's uploaded onto YouTube.         I find it perculiar how they used the words: 'how much he still loves the role' when it sounds like he should be leaving or something. I know he's been the Doctor (officially) since December but with how long it took to film it all and get it transmitted on TV, it feels a lot shorter tenure, so hopefully he will stay in the role a good few years to completely fulfil it because since the birth of the split series, the series have felt shorter and characters not been in it as long as perhaps they should've like Clara at the moment. It still feels like a short time that she's been on the show when it's been two years but the delays between the series and specials made it feel a lot shorter. Hope this rectifies in the future with the return of the full series.

@Mockridge Doesn't seem a fair opinion to say David should've been kicked out after one series.

It'll probably take people until the series finale to propely appreciate Capaldi's Doctor, that's what happened to me with Smith and I guess Tennant. All the episode of Capaldi I have enjoyed so far (apart from Into the Dalek) and they're getting better and I expect most others are saying that as well, apart from the constant moaners who are never happy. He'll be regarded as a brilliant and legendary Doctor like Tennant and Smith by the end of his run.

@Planet of the Deaf I do agree slightly with this as I haven't heard as many people (like around school and the likes) talking about Doctor Who as much as before and if I ask many people and they do agree David Tennant was the best (not starting a debate here but that's just the general opinion at my school - fair enough) but since the start of Capaldi's era there hasn't been much discussion and I realise it's probably because it's all different and changing tone now with a new Doctor, I mean I'm still adjusting myself. It took me until the finale of Series 5 to start fully appreciating Smith as the Doctor. Hopefully this time around I should be adjusted again by then.

I always wondered does that overnight rating include people watching on BBC One HD or does that get separate ratings like +1 channels would as when I tune in live every week I watch it on the HD channel for obvious reasons and the show is the only one I record in HD, the rest get Standard Definition (storage and space reasons). Do the HD ratings count to the standard overnight rating or do they get their own separate insight?

Kill the Moon sounds a lot more interesting now it's been given a proper synopsis and I will look forward to that one as I will with Mummy on the Orient Express which has suddenly been described as dark and disturbing and requiring a later time slot to that one sounds brilliant as well and I have been looking forward to watching The Caretaker as it sounds like a good fun one, well to a degree anyway. But Time Heist is still not doing it for me, sounds pretty boring, but could be wrong, but for the moment not getting my hopes up.
