Doctor What and Where
Bio not provided
I don't want to say "fans are stupid," but.... Day of the Doctor this high? Come on.
1 day, 3 hours ago on Revival Face-Off: The Grand Final
It annoys me that Day of the Doctor is so high, and Midnight seemingly isn't.
2 days, 2 hours ago on Revival Face-Off: Semi-Final #2
I loved Dark Water... but Death in Heaven is stupid.
Day of the Doctor, while it has the stupid, stupid, insipid, stupid War Doctor concept (yes, retroactively introduce a secret Doctor who, at the end of the day, is JUST LIKE all the other Doctors), it still have David Tennant, and John Hurt (who literally sells the War Doctor concept, almost single-handedly).

@The Finn is excited for audio Kate Stewart! @TheEmptyChild @RoastNewt Oh, come on! The barn's definitely not on Gallifrey.
6 days, 6 hours ago on Revival Face-Off: Round #11
@RoastNewt Not the finish. The finish was awful (Listen, I mean).
1 week ago on Revival Face-Off: Round #11
The first 2/3 of Listen is better, but Clara influencing the First Doctor as a child? That was insultingly embarrasing. Awful turn that ruined an otherwise decent episode.
A major reason A Good Man Goes To War sucks, is of course bleedin' River Song... by now, she's become a parody of herself. Amy's daughter?

@ichabod @Doctor What and Where His loyalty in Dark Water doesn't have anything to do with Listen for the Doctor. If the Mistress revealed that hey, Clara influenced the Master's life too, then you'd have Clara be the source of comfort and assistance to both the Doctor (good) and the Master (bad). Brilliant, I think, opportunity to make Clara a less-than-perfect companion for that reason alone.

@Ollie Walton Harrod @Doctor What and Where More random that the Master being responsible for the Doctor's and Clara's initial meeting in the 21st century?
I simply hate Listen's revelation that Clara was there in his childhood. And the rather forced link to the War Doctor. Thats just way too much fankwankery for Moffat.
At least I would've accepted it, had Clara actually been consoling the Master instead, thinking it was the Doctor... now that would be a proper twist!
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Doctor Why Bother?
I love Adams' City of Death and Shada (as completed by he-who-shall-not-be-named) dearly, and I liked his work in the Key to Time arc. A shame he never got to work on the new show.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Douglas, the Doctor and Everything
I'm baffled at how the Eleventh is below the War Doctor. The latter was a pastiche of the First Doctor with the Ninth. If it wasn't for John Hurt, the character would've failed miserably.
Also, isn't the War Doctor technically a co-creation with RTD? I know he didn't create him, but he did basically draw the entire story and the concept of the Time War, thus he contributed to him in a similar way Barry Letts defined the Third Doctor - a character he didn't create, but who mapped out his character, actions and story afterwards. The only difference is, RTD did so, retroactively.

@NickyArmstrong @Doctor What and Where The Warrior just isn't very interesting, once you explore him. Its not like the Eighth Doctor, who didn't have a purpose and his character was carte blanche before Big Finish. BF should leave Time War alone.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Infinite Potential: Where Could Big Finish Take New Who? (Part 1)
@The_War_Braden Maybe 12 wouldn't do it, because he'd be busy with the BBC stories. But the rest... Bring it on!
Here's one thing I most certianly hope they WON'T explore: The Time War, and the War Doctor.
The whole point of the War Doctor is that he is narratively a surprise to the audience. A Doctor we didn't actually know he existed. A Doctor that didn't call himself the Doctor. Plus, the Time War simply works as an abstract proposition - not by definitively drawing upon its detailed history. Its a Time War, its not supposed to make complete sense.
That said, I'd love to hear Doctors 9, 10 and 11 be explored in surprising new depths. 9 especially can be developed in wonderful ways.
And who doesn't want a multi-Doctor story in audio with both Old AND NuWho Doctors? Four and Ten? Ten and Six? Seven and 9? Eight and Eleven? Awesome, I say!
It will be so exciting to see some NuWho color mixed with Classic Who elements.... Can't wait for the result!
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Kate Stewart Returns in UNIT Extinction
@divya12 They were canon by the moment RTD hired Robert Shearman to write Dalek. Even the Cybermen origin story in Pete's World gives credit to Marc Platt, the writer of Spare Parts, for the inspiration of the said story.
All Moffat did was make the canonization more explicit.

@Lord Denton Be sure to check Trial of the Valeyard... an apetizer, but something to hold you over. :)
@AlessandroArsuffi Well, you can enjoy Trial of the Valeyard until then... its certainly an apetizer for the upcoming story. :)
@Blake Jamieson The actual regeneration story is called The Brink of Death... The Last Adventure is just an umbrella title.
@pats86 I really didn't like it. Some nice moments here and there, but overall, an underwhelming experience.
2 months ago on Why I Love The War Doctor
I'm sorry, thats a really great article, but... The Warrior (seriously, he's not a Doctor, why is he still called the War Doctor?) is, by default, the worst incarnation of the Doctor. Because he is basically a combination of the Ninth with the gruffiness of the First Doctor.
Thats it. The reason he works even remotely, is because he is played by the best British actor of all time. No joke.
The Valeyard, anyone?

I would so dearly love to see an RTD-penned episode from him. He simply has to write about the new Doctor, just must.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Russell T Davies on New Who’s 10th Anniversary
I can actually explain the "farewell tour". To me, it the Doctor having a last, good look on his old friends. I mean, some of them he has seen, and recently to him, but some, maybe not. But the point is, he took the time to actually give himself that treat.
Consider how the Doctor has had no real control over his regeneration, at least since he was Old Sixie. He presumably died saving the multiverse (according to Spiral Scratch, anyway) before having his regeneration quickened by Rani's attack, and ever since then, he's been consistently cought unprepared for his demise.- Seventh, the master manipulator and schemer, almost died in a random shooting, and because of Dr. Grace, he died on the operating table.- Eighth, the battle-hardened romantic, died while trying to cling to his essential self by saving that poor woman. He sacrificed himself into the Warrior, yes, BUT, he was already dead. The Sisterhood only prolonged his life in order to regenerate.- The Warrior, whose existencce solely pertained to the Time War, just simply began regenerating once his purpose as the War Doctor was fullfilled. He ended the Time War, so it was time to be the Doctor once again.- Ninth had very little choice. He gave his life to save Rose, and apparently didn't have time or didn't wish to prolong his suffering and regenerated into Ten.
So naturally, he didn't allow himself the luxury of having a Farewell Tour, as it were.Also, lets not forget the relevant argument, that even according to Day of the Doctor, the Tenth Doctor is the shortest-lived Doctor of them all. Five, maybe six years old. Compare that to his predecessors - the Warrior was apparently 400 years old, and 9 might've been a little less of a hundred. And 11? Twice of both.So while you might have a point there, I do think it makes sense if you see things a little more closely. Also, after Time of the Doctor, it could argued that he may have feared that this was either his last ever regeneration, or that he might not even regenerate at all.Just my two cents.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Why I Hate the Tenth Doctor’s Regeneration
Basically, pretty good, except the ending was crap.
Simply put, Clara should've died of old age in that scene. Would've been a brilliant parallel to last year's Time of the Doctor.

Time of the Doctor. No question.

I really don't like series 7. Its vastly inconsistent, with lots of sloppy writing and rushed storytelling... but, I do love Time of the Doctor.
So yeah, count me as a fan.

Thats because your imagination is so infertile, Gatiss. No offense, but there IS an appeal. If you don't want to see it, your problem.

4 months ago on Last Christmas: Short Synopsis
What an absolutely dissapointing release. Cardboard box, re-release of Name of the Doctor without anything new in addition, and Night of the Doctor in the same disc? That should've been, as it rightfully was, included in the Day of the Doctor disc. Why put it here? Of course! To buffy up the release for no real reason.
And no 3D feature presentation for Day? Are you kidding me? The episode was barely made and had to promise to make it in 3D - back when the BBC actually thought that 3D was gonna be the network's future - and you don't include it? WHY?!
Also, no commentaries? Or NEW features?
Question: How lazy is this release? The answer: Very.
I wasted 50 pounds on this, and I regret doing so. Aside from Adventure in Space and Time, I'd rather I had bought Day and Time seperately.
4 months ago on 50th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Review (Part 1)
A really potent, honest question: Why isn't there an EPISODE SELECTION? Why do I have to PLAY ALL or go through SCENE SELECTION to watch maybe the second or third episode on the disc? I don't get it!

I refuse to vote, on the count of missing finales. Where is End of Time? And is Series 7 including the Day and the Time of Doctor too? If not, why? Why needlessly complicate these lists?

Peter, stay for like, 5 years or so, and you can get your TARDIS after the following season. But I really look at this TARDIS as yours now. :-)

Frankly, shouldn't the whole trilogy of ... Of The Doctor be considered? At least, it makes sense to me to do so.

The TV Movie is absolutely terrible. Without McGann and the beautiful TARDIS set, it'd be forgotten faster than Twin Dilemma.
Replace the choices with To Death/Lucie Miller and The Zygon that Fell on Earth, and you might havea decent list.

Very basically, since series 2, they don't make any sense. Who are they? Are they the updated Mondas Cybermen? Are they the Cybus that came from the alternate reality, and if so, how? Are they something else?
