One of these years, when James Corden isn't busy doing his own show, I think it would be fun to visit Craig, again.

The X-Files did it rather well when they integrated one season, into the first movie, into the following season.


I don't see why Doctor Who can't do the same thing. Actually, they already did a similar thing with Tenant Doctor's tele-movies into Smith Doctor.

Still, there are some valid point in the complaints.

It was a Christmas episode! You don't go that deep into a warrior's psyche at Christmas! Even so, how we react to, and behave during a 1,000 year war is in no way how the Doctor, or anyone else would do.

Brilliant article and right on the money. The Doctor must take the time to heal from a 1,000 year war. And Clara, bless her, is precisely who he needs to help him through that healing.

@Typo42 "Magic Carrots" You make a good point. Every adventure over the last 52 years has been experienced by one Doctor in several incarnations (actors). He's the same man, in essence, but has learned a thing or three during his vaious incarnations.


The reason why some stories could have been told by any incarnation (Blink) is because he's the same man, and any incarnation would have done well in that story. But some incarnations (e.g. The Eleventh Hour) could only be told with Smith Doctor. Then there is the one story that had to include every last one of the incarnations in order to save Gallifrey (The Day of the Doctor), and in the process, save the Doctor's soul in the process. The icing on that cake is Smith Doctor meeting his former/future self and discovering a new purpose besides running away.


This is why I love Doctor Who so much.

I love the writer's pairings and the stories. However, I'd have each pair do an entire episode - just the two of them - in the story arc. Start out with Clara and Capaldi Doctor recognizing the threat and pairing up the Companions/Doctors (with Clara forcing Donna on Capaldi Doctor). Then have the different episodes featuring each pairing. Then having all of them gather for the final battle.


But there must be a special appearance of Wilf. That old boy ties with Clara as my all-time favorite Companion. And that's saying a lot with all the great Companions over the years.


Hmm. Perhaps have cross-overs with Big Finish and the TV show to cement the two as one canon...


Ooo. Martha and Hurt Doctor. Now *that* would be some pairing.

I would switch Amy and Smith Doctor. And since my all-time favorite Doctors are Capaldi and Hurt Doctors, they would tie for number one.


And Clara would tie with Amy for number four.

Do it the way the first X-Files movie was done - in continuity. Say, between the series and the Christmas special. Or make it the Christmas special. Or between the Christmas special and the next series (Series 9 and 10 or 10 and 11.

The Doctor is most definitely a superhero. In fact, if I were a super villain, I'd rather go up against the Justice League and the Avengers, combined, than the Doctor. I mean, really. When was the last time you saw Superman chase away an entire race of Big Bads by saying "Hello, I'm the Doctor. Basically. Run?"

As for the Doctor loving Clara no matter what, and vice versa, that's called Unconditional Love. In my opinion, that's the most pure, most honest and the strongest love there is. We need much more of that IMNSHO. So I'm glad she's staying on.

Only Eccleston can say if he wants to return, and he hasn't wanted to do so. McGann, however, would be a perfect choice. Imagine McGann Doctor and Capaldi Doctor vs Missy and, say, the Rani for the 10th Anniversary of the New Who. That has interstellar incident written all over it.

There were some wonderful moments in Last Christmas. The most fun parts were with Santa Claus. I loved his scenes. And of those scenes, the Doctor driving the sleigh was my personal highlight.


My two favorite scenes were Clara and Danny and, eventually, the Doctor, and Old Clara and the Doctor. Whenever Jenna leaves, they have the perfect scene (with a variation) to end her story.


My favorite line: "Who ya gonna call."

Um, Mark Gattis, the Doctor and Captain Picard have met, and they and their respective colleagues joined forces to battle the Borg and the Cybermen. Plus, Clara and the Doctor have teamed up with Robin Hood and are about to team up with Badass St. Nick (Frost :D) in two days. So a WhoLock crossover isn't out of the realm of possibility. Whether or not that should happen is the question. I wouldn't mind a one-off - and only a one-off - just for fun. The possibilities, as mentioned in other posts would be delightful.

The writer's conclusion fall flat for me because every companion has gone through what he mentions. In other words, same old story with a different twist.That's the inherent nature of any, and every companion. However, his suggestions do have merit.

When I think about it, Clara is the first unofficial female Doctor (Doctor Donna is the first official female Doctor IMO). After all, she's saved every incarnation of her best friend, one way or another. No other companion has done that

Also, why can't women characters be role models for boys and male character be role models for girls?
