I've only just started getting into Eighth Doctor novels, I'm afraid. I've only read Alien bodies, and I'm about a third of the way through vampire science (probably a bit early to recommend it, but it's great so far!). I've got the Bodysnatchers too, which I'll be reading next. Definitely agree that Alien Bodies is worth a read, I think it's probably the most ambitious Doctor Who story I've ever seen, and I'd thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Not got the infinity Doctors, but I'm assuming I should get myself a copy?

There are some amazing Doctor Who books out there, you should definitely pick up a few!

Here's a quick list of some you should read ASAP:

Shroud of Sorrow, featuring the Eleventh Doctor and Clara.

Touched by an Angel (My personal favourite), featuring The Eleventh Doctor, Amy, Rory and the weeping angels.

Prisoner of the Daleks, featuring the Tenth Doctor and...well...the Daleks.

Forever Autumn, featuring the Tenth Doctor and Martha Jones.

The Resurrection Casket, featuring the Tenth Doctor and Rose.

Alien Bodies, featuring the Eighth Doctor and Sam.

Vampire Science, featuring the Eighth Doctor and Sam.

There are plenty of others that are absolutely brilliant, but these are my favourites.

Oh, I agree. They've just edited the logo, they haven't replaced it.

It was, I've been on a tour of the last set (Matt'a first one) and it was completely 360 degrees. The entire thing was covered, all of the way around.

Actually, yes there is. Letters are thicker. It's minor, but entirely noticeable.

There's a difference between change and improvement. It's all subjective, of course. Not hating on change, I really liked the change to silver and removal of "DW", that's what I'd call an improvement. In my opinion, this change isn't an improvement. Again, it's really quite minor, but in a trailer that's sixteen seconds long with the majority of it being a flashing silhouette, there isn't much else to talk about. The most notable thing in the trailer (for me) is the logo, so...I'm commenting on my opinion of it.

Actually, no it's not. The last one was too, it was just the 2005-2010 set (of the new series) that wasn't a complete set.

I know it's just a minor change, but I preferred the logo as it was. It looked sharper before, now it's a little too...soft. But still, mega excited!

In Journey's End, the Doctor is disgusted at the prospect of being half human, so that already sort of contradicts the movie. In Nightmare in Silver, Mr Clever takes over the Doctor's body and claims its "not even slightly human".

It HAS been referenced to some degree, you've just got to decide which of the contradicting statements you decide to believe.

And since, for the majority of the 50 years, the Doctor has referred to human beings as being something completely different to him, I'm gonna go with %100 rebel Time Lord.

If they wanna make the Daleks scary again, they're going about it the wrong way. This whole idea of bringing the Daleks back to their full strength -giving them an empire- really doesn’t give them the scare factor they want it to; in fact, it’s counterproductive. The Daleks are the most advanced, deadliest race in the universe. They’re too dangerous to be a constant threat to the universe. If they’re so powerful, and they have an empire, what are they doing? Having meetings? They want to destroy all life in the universe, and they have that power; so why aren’t they doing it? Time War Daleks are almost unstoppable, and RTD balanced that by taking away their numbers – except for big occasions. Now that they’re a major force, they aren’t as threatening. Before, just knowing a single Dalek was alive meant the universe was in trouble. Now, there’s an entire empire out there…and nobody seems to care. They’ve grown since the classic series; they’re more powerful, deadlier.

@FallenNocturne It's ironic, because "Meh. I'm not a fan of evil clone stories." Is probably what I'd apply to The Rebel Flesh.

I adore the angels take manhattan, so that takes it for me. The rebel flesh is the only Doctor Who episode in history where I was actually bored, so that's an easy last place for me.

I tried to get into heroes years ago, ironically it was the news that Christopher Eccleston was going to be in it that drew me to the series. But I dunno, I never made it to Eccleston's debut, the show just didn't hold my attention.

@Adric the Genius Here's where you are 100% wrong. Homosexual marriage is NOT wrong. "Marriage is between a man and a woman" says who?

Your god? The bible? And what about the homosexuals that don't believe in your god? Should they not marry just because a religion they don't even believe in disagrees with it? Civil partnership is different. It's not marriage, and gay couples should be allowed to marry, they should be allowed to have sex. Just as you or I should.

@Adric the Genius I agree that it's everyone's right to an opinion, and I don't intend to start a religious debate, but it's difficult to depict a character who is against giving someone their basic human right because their religion disagrees with it. I mean, think of all the gay atheists, they don't share your religion, so why should they follow it? Now, this isn't me telling you that you're wrong, but -while I have no issue with a Christian character- I do have an issue with a Christian character who shuns someone else's relationship, just because their religion says they should.

While, it's true that people should all have their opinion, I find it hard to respect it when it's calling someone's relationship "unnacceptable". It MIGHT be unnacceptable in christianity, but you can't decide that homosexuality is wrong. That's not up to you or your religion. 

Your beliefs are important to you, and that's good, but deciding something is wrong because your god says it is, is unfair. I'm completely heterosexual, and I'm absolutely pro-gay rights. That's because homosexuality harms no one, and many people are born that way. Who are we to tell them they can't fall in love? "You can't get married because my god says it's wrong" is an argument I find incredibly flawed. 

Some opinions ARE wrong. I'm not afraid to say that.
