@galactic_unicorn @Blanchard @Antee991166   Something to be noted for those examples, is yes its true that those were examples of good Daleks, making The Doctor's statement in 'Into The Dalek' contradictory, think about what happened to said good Daleks. The Dalek Rose had an effect on committed suicide, Dalek Sec was murdered by his fellow Daleks, Dalek Caan gained a proper range of emotions after he went insane and became manipulative for the greater good and then intentionally died with Davros due to his hatred for his own kind and Rusty was only briefly good and was completely incapacitated, went bad again, then went to the other side of the spectrum and went into a Dalek killing frenzy.


It's not that having a good Dalek is physically impossible, it's just metaphorically impossible. Each time a Dalek has gone good, it has either committed suicide, been murdered by their fellow Daleks, gone mad or turned into a Dalek killing machine.

@AlessandroArsuffi @Angel Percy  I personally be interested in seeing a character from the past like Jamie or Victoria. It would be interesting to see their reaction to things and perspective on things from an old world view but with logic and experiences coming from a completely different angle that would help The Doctor from time to time. But I think they should at least start out along side a 21st century companion, the last time we had a non-contemporary Earth companion, was round about the 2nd Doctor's era, roundabout the 6th Doctor's era for a companion that just generally didn't fit the typical bill of modern, give or take Earth.

I never really understood people's excitement about having her back as if it was a likely thing. I liked Shona, I thought she was a good character and well acted but there's no reason she would return, granted, Donna came back after her outing in The Runaway Bride but it just seems like the question of her coming back fell out of thin air. I still hold hope that she might and I find it unrealistic to expect that a lot of things are impossible, even when they could theoretically happen but I just don't understand where the question itself came from.

@supermoff, defender of Series 6  I personally love TWoRS but something that will forever bother me, is that in my opinion we didn't see enough of this crazy, surreal drugged up, timey-wimey fever dream world that Moffat had cooked up, it's understandable considering the length of time the episode had, only being a 45 minute episode but it feels like wasted potential and the kind of wasted potential where the only way you can use up the leftover potential is to either use the concept again in a really really clever, yet to be done outside the box way or not use it for 50 years.

The Master has always seemed like the other half of The Doctor to me. As children, essentially starting out as the same person in many respects and it being hinted several times that as children, they were very good friends. But from descriptions of The Master in the show and outside of the show, he seemed to always been the one who goes a bit further than The Doctor, staring into the Untempered Schism, as opposed being inspired or running presumably just out of morbid curiosity. And as friends, they probably fail to see how the other could have turned out so different. But having been the same once, they know they're both capable of going either way. So it turns into an inner struggle between two people, trying to have the dominant personality. If they were one person they'd become a Time Lord with a split personality disorder. But if one of them died, the other just wouldn't work on their own, it'd be like light without shadow or shadow without light.

@Malohkeh, not a member of any acronyms @SirTrey @TheNightmareChild is... Peeves  Some of the character of The Master (In the Classic series at any rate) was largely based off of the archetypal bond villain/arch-nemesis that we all know and love-hate. Especially during Pertwee's era, where Delgado's portrayal was more or less designed to be an evil version of The Doctor. So now amount of being vaporised, shot, blown up or being thrown off a building would kill him. Missy most likely survived being shot by the Brigadier in the typical fashion. Though, there seems to be more call to explain the survival of the Master in recent years. Except for Missy escaping her fate as Simm's Master in the End of Time, at least that we know.


The Master could probably compared to villains like Baron Samedi or Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Less so, Blofeld since he had reason for his escapes) from the Bond Films or Jean Descole from Professor Layton (Falls backwards off a giant contraption with no means of slowing his fall or any evidence he survived in the film. Yet turns up in the following game with little mention of his seeming ability to defy death)

@TheCyberDoctor   Since we're doing awesome quotes from The Eleventh Hour.


DOCTOR: And she left you all alone?!


AMELIA: I'm not scared!


DOCTOR: No! 'Course not! You're not scared of anything! Box falls out of the sky, man falls out of a box, man eats fish custard! And look at you! Just sitting there... So you know what I think?


AMELIA: What?


DOCTOR: That must be one hell of a crack in your wall.


It seems like a random choice, it's not exactly from any iconic scene and not a particularly memorable line compared to the sea of memorable quotes this episode had to offer but something about this just makes the Eleventh Doctor for me.

@supermoff  I just loved River in general in the two parter (And in series 5 as a whole) it's not just her chemistry with The Doctor (Though that is arguably the most important one, considering her mystery was centred around The Doctor) but her chemistry with everyone in general.


RIVER: This won't hurt a bit. *Injects Amy*


AMY: Ow!


RIVER: There... see? I lied.


Unlike some people who sort of felt that series 6 ruined her character, I don't feel it did and considering we were going back through her timestream, character regression was going happen anyway. It's like a prequel but in a linear fashion I guess. I do find personally that they rushed the River and The Doctor arc a bit though.


There were lots of mentions of things they did and suggestion that she had seen way more of The Doctor than just the 11th Doctor (And eventually the 10th.) or at least, a bit more of the 11th than we got to see. Granted we weren't going to see everything that went on between them, some of it would have happened off screen to give cheeky references to where we're like 'What on Earth did that adventure involve and do we want to know?' but it happened a bit too fast.


One series she's a complex mystery and suddenly the next the secret is revealed and her character goes all the way back to when she first meets The Doctor very, very quickly. I feel like there was a lot the missed out on with her character. What happened to River in series 6 was going to happen, I just personally didn't expect it to happen as early in her character as series 6.

I tend to never really be able to go below 5/10 with these polls. With Doctor Who it's either 'an episode that I'll watch on a rerun of a series' and 'an episode I'll actively try to re-watch' and sooner or later, the lines become blurred. I think I just get a bit scared to go below 5/10 if I'm honest.

When I first came to watching Doctor Who in 2005, it tended for me to be about watching the show, discussing it with my friends at school and any difference in opinion was perfectly fine, it never turned sour and at the end of the day was about loving the show even with opinions against certain episodes or a recent development.


I didn't actually really get to the Doctor Who side of the internet until about 2012, I watched a few reviews of episodes and read comments and it took me a little while to realise that this was affecting my outlook on the show in depressing ways.


The reviews were nice but some of the ones for more recent episodes, seemed negative regardless of the reviewer's actual view in the end and on some videos, Doctor Who based Youtube comments could be like someone with a match and powder keg and I realised that I was getting to be a bit on the negative side of the fandom. Overly disliking things and taking this dislikes and filling them with hate.


Then when I ran into Doctor Who TV, it generally began to bring out the side of me I remembered having towards to show as a kid. No matter the view, so long they were put forward properly, all views became a nice discussion point. There was the occasional time where there were arguments or bits where I was being grumpy and unreasonable, as we all tend to be sometimes but Doctor Who TV had generally made me feel much better about the show and about accepting opinions than before.

@divya12  I think the main issue here was people who put forward their negative opinions in certain ways, the ways that turn Youtube comments and Facebook pages into bomb sites. It's perfectly fine to express a different opinion and say you didn't enjoy something and I think it's a shame that this article didn't touch on being able to express your opinion vs. the rest of the internet but when it was talking about negativity it was referring to people who are taking a view or opinion and then chucking a bunch of hate and needless anger into it, turning ,what was potentially a nice comments section or discussion before,  into the pits. There's nothing wrong with expressing a negative opinion or countering someone's opinion the way you've described it and I wish more people would recognise the difference between a difference in opinion and a massive ball of negativity, so people getting beat down for expressing a different opinion doesn't happen again.

@dragonsfyre  The ratings for series 4 are generally high but in some places, especially in the middle it drops from roughly 8m to 6m and while it is of course the mid-series lull and a drop in ratings tends to happen around then, in some places it's more of an impressive drop than the mid-series lull series 8 had.  Neither of them were experiencing a dangerous drop in ratings obviously, it's just people could complain the same 'danger of cancellation' for series 4 that they do now, if they went back in time. And they'd probably gather a few takers.

@Huknar @DawnTime  Personally I found the Eleventh Doctor to be about as childish as most other Doctors, yes he was a bit hyperactive and it was far more noticeable but I personally find that in the way he was written and the way Matt portrayed him they found a paradoxical balance.


He was a super-hyperactive and excitable and silly but at a moments notice he could turn into a ball of rage and not even in the expected way, as in 'Vampires of Venice' he basically declares war on Signiora Calvierri because she didn't know the name of someone she had killed. Plus he had old looking eyes in that no matter the situation, you could see all the life behind him, the time war and before. In terms of comparing him to a previous Doctor, he's akin to a younger Second Doctor.


Eleven was barmy and an utter loony and at the same time, entirely down to earth and epic in my eyes, hence why I love that incarnation to bits. Obviously, you probably have a different view, which is totally fine. Life would be boring if we had the same opinions.


Moffat's Era has been different to say the least and I do sort of wish series 6's arc layout was more similar to series 5 and didn't lose a lot of people halfway through but he brought some clever and very brave changes to the show and has brought some absolute gems to the table in my eyes. They haven't all been great but I can understand being showrunner and writing brilliant stories that are all on par with each other isn't exactly going to work out all the time, so I personally try my best to enjoy the good stuff and don't let the stuff I don't enjoy get me down much, though it could be said I over do it sometimes. :P (Nearly 10/10 for basically all series 8 episodes? Some people rave about series 8 but nearly all of the episodes being 10/10 in my eyes or at least nigh-10/10? That's not exactly possible. :P)


Perhaps Moffat's era being childish goes beyond simple opinion and has full on basis in fact, being someone who probably stopped aging mentally when I was about 10, bar some of the wisdom that comes with growing up and a little bit of knowledge, I wouldn't notice much. So I'm biased on that front. Still, life would be boring without opinions,


I'm happy I haven't ran into anyone who spews crazy nonsense about Moffat today. I'd be stupid saying people disliking Moffat's episodes or showrunning techniques is bad, it's just an opinion and very interesting to hear but people who appear to be trolling to annoy even people who dislike Moffat's methods could get on anyone's nerves.

@Americanwhovian  That'd make sense. People tend to favour the explanation as to why The Doctor was viewed as human during his first incarnation, that Time Lord anatomy is very similar to that of a human's during the first incarnation, now presumably regeneration energy allows for a long life since it has life restoring properties and is probably raw time energy, so you could probably have a Time Lord in their first incarnation aging at a human rate but living for a lot longer.


Though perhaps they don't live as long in their first incarnation due to the human anatomy, due to the First Doctor dying at roughly 450 and the Eleventh Doctor being on the brink of dying of old age after roughly 1100 years.


Though it could be down to a definition of years, however the War Doctor referred to his age in the same way the Tenth and Eleventh Doctor's did, where if they meant Earth years, it wouldn't make sense due to the War Doctor having spent goodness knows how long on Galiffrey and nearby planets working for the Time Lords in fighting the war. So either he was playing along to make more sense in the context, his age was roughly close their age in Gallifreyan years at the time or the War Doctor simply aged faster and died of old age quicker due to the nature of how he regenerated into that incarnation in the first place.

I love ideas like this, I've often taken to thinking through what an alternate reality in a series might be like myself, especially with Doctor Who, though not limited to that. Only issue is, as shown here, you very quickly discover that things seem to start out nice and then go on a downhill slope fairly quickly. Turn Left is a good example of that. Some of my favourite series' have taken on a new light for me based on what could have happened and largely, considering most of them involve a hero saving people it makes me glad half the time it turned out the way it did. :P

Seems like an interesting theory. I'd love for it to be the case, it probably won't be, there's thousands of possibilities of what could happen but we can dream and for all we know, it might happen. Missy being The Master was a popular theory and it turned out to be correct. Lovely thing about it is it fits in with established canon and sounds like great fun. Only issue is, I'm fairly sure The Doctor invented the sonic screwdriver, not Omega. Still Omega could probably still reprogram it somehow.

Besides this issue, I did enjoy the article and it's an interesting view on Doctor Who and some of it's content from the perspective from someone who's transgender and how some aspects or episodes of the show can come across and it makes an important point at a time when society is gradually becoming more liberal.

I'm a very liberal person and granted I'm not in the same situation so I might not have any understanding of how these lines must appear to transgender people but some of this seems a bit overanalysed. Some of it makes a very good point, the line from Jack in Greeks Bearing Gifts does seem very off, out of character and insensitive but some of this just feels as if there are parts in no way intended to be a reference to being transgender and then taken in a way that appears as if it is.


RTD for example, has gone out of his way through-out his time in television to add characters to media who you would never have seen 20 years ago, at least not without being horrifically stereotyped or made the villain based on it being a 'bad' thing. So he most likely would never intentionally put something transphobic in television unless it wasn't meant to be taken that way and totally by accident.


The mention of Cassandra having been a boy was most likely an effort to point out the existence of people who are transgender, the rest about her character that might seem like a stereotype just seems like a coincidence, for example the low raspy voice was the natural voice of the actress. Fair enough to call them out if they put it on but it was the actress' natural voice and is most likely a coincidence. Though as I previously said, I have no idea what it's like to discover that you're transgender or how some things in media may come across to you in regards the view of being transgender in the media or the stigma you may get from it.

@DrainOfMorbius  How can something be too liberal? Being liberal is a good thing, it acknowledges the existence of certain cultures, sexualities, ethnicities, religions and so on. Especially in a society where, even though it's becoming increasingly liberal and there's more support for all this than you think, there's still stigma against it from some people and any little help to push it along into a more equal society is a good thing. You may find that personally you feel it's getting a bit intrusive despite being in support of equality and that's fine but how can you be against liberalism? That's like being against loads of things at once. Having an accepting society is far more useful than having one with one superior corner, it achieves far more.

And I remember occasionally giving up on thinking they'll get out of it and assuming they won't. It's less impressive now because we know what happens next but when it first aired, there was going to be no way anyone would guess the resolution, it looked like there wasn't one.

@joe4 @Planet of the Deaf  I don't see how it's bigoted at all. If anything, it's true. I'm thoroughly guilty of it and I've seen loads of people do it. People do tend to let their personal views on some external factor effect an episode, when it shouldn't.


I don't really like Asylum or Journey because of the fact they were hyped up and didn't live up to my expectations. That doesn't make them bad episodes, it just means I'm sore about the fact they didn't do what I expected and I thoroughly loved all of series 8 because I realised how silly it is to hate on Moffat, having seen what he has to put up with and how it effects him.


So when series 8 came around, I enjoyed all of them more and avoided complaining over trivialities. Doesn't mean all of the episodes were good though, it just means I'm super protective of them.


To be honest though, Evolutionary Dead-End is right. It doesn't really matter, 82-85 are brilliant AI scores. A show's episodes all getting an AI score of above 90 would be like winning the lottery, so unless you count 90-100 all of series 8 was viewed as top end stuff by the sample viewers.

When reading things kids said about the series in the Radiotimes, it was generally positive and when it wasn't, it was just they didn't like a certain episode. I wish people would stop trying to think for kids sometimes. Sure they need the help sometimes, they're still growing up, but some people are intent on thinking they know what kids want when actually what they 'know' is the exact opposite to the truth. But what the hell, this is from the Daily Mail anyway.

Voyage was set on a space version of the Titanic which sunk (Or crashed in this case) just like it's namesake and there were angel robots trying to murder the crew.


The Next Doctor had a person who thought they were The Doctor, as a Cyberman plot happens around Victorian London to create a giant cyber-king using a child work force that mysteriously dropped off the face of history books (I have headcannon for that but apart from the events of series 5 which were undone, they didn't exactly address the issue)

They, like most reintroduced villains would probably need something added to them to make it worthwhile though. For example the Weeping Angels constantly had new concepts added to them when they appeared for a new episode of their own. Blink was the general concept, Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone added the 'image of an angel is an angel' thing and to never stare them in the eyes and Angels Take Manhattan, though it was more focused on the Ponds, it introduced the potential energy farm among other things. Just as an example of this kind of thing with villains.

I mean back in the 4th Doctor's era it was roughly the same, hence why people were confused when Mary Whitehouse did her typical 'You're scaring the kiddies!' stuff. This is basically the same but with loads of Mary Whitehouses.


My cousin got annoyed that she was going to miss Into the Dalek when it aired and had to watch a recording because she heard it would be scary and wanted to watch it. People just seem to like to try and think for kids despite the fact they can do it perfectly. I was a complete daredevil as a kid, it wouldn't match in anyway with how Mary Whitehouse saw childhood.
