Infinite Potential is probably one of the tracks in the Doctor Who soundtrack that I've listened to the most and it's a piece of score that I will occasionally find myself humming.  It's a lovely, lovely track and I think it works great in both scenes it features in. :)

@ilyootha @TheNightmareChild is backing Ten For the sake of keeping things on topic and not breaking the website with another debate, I'll agree to disagree on that if you will. :P

@Planet of the Deaf @TheNightmareChild is backing Ten It would be hard to justify that since Vale Decem literally means 'Good bye, Ten'.  I suppose if they removed the chorus and just used the music, but then what would that track be without that?

Maybe because by the end I didn't much care for River's character, I associate her theme way more with the Curator scene in Day than with River. :P

Eh, I don't think Four Knocks works quite as well without the stages of grief that Ten goes through in The End of Time.  Although it went fine with the cracker scene in The Time of the Doctor.

Boy.  I gotta say that this article's comment section seems a little quieter than the previous ones.  Maybe I'm wrong, but I feel like the previous ones were getting close to at least one-hundred comments by this point in their publication.  I wonder why that is.  Is everyone still wittering about Doctor Who movies or something?

Time again for me to get a comfortable seat, some snacks and just watch the fireworks this time.  You all enjoy voting and arguing.  And please, make it spectacular. :D

Ultimately, I am curious what a Doctor Who film would look like.  For good or for ill.  Trepidation aside, this is intriguing news at the very least. 

And besides, as long as they don't do something stupid like connect it too much to the contemporaneous show's canon, the worst that'll happen is it'll be a sh*t movie and we'll quietly sweep it under the rug and move on with our lives.

The only condition under which they should ever agree to work for Sony is if they are given complete creative freedom.  No studio interference at all.  And that's why this, at the very best, will not happen for a long, long time.

@Typo42 "Magic Carrots" @TheNightmareChild is backing Ten I can only really recall two specific instances where he really "wittered" on about Rose.  Actually, really one specific instance in The Shakespeare Code, and then in Utopia the only reason Rose came up is because Jack specifically asked about her.  Beyond that, we don't really know how much "wittering" he was really doing.

@TheDoctor1235 Ten really didn't have that many women flirting with him.  You could argue he had Rose, Captain Jack (a man) and then Minnie in The End of Time... and really that's it.  Eleven had River Song all throughout his life, Amy and Tasha Lem and those are just the ones that I can remember off the top of my head.

And as far as action scenes, what exactly did Ten add to the Doctor's action repertoire anyway?  Running with his teeth gritted?

I also think his treatment of Martha is just slightly overblown.  Really it was just the Doctor taking the wrong lesson from what happened with Rose - that he doesn't need anybody, rather than he should just be a little more responsible during his travels and take the situations he's in a little more seriously again.  

People act like the Doctor owed Martha the TARDIS key, and being hesitant about giving it to her and being closed off to her is some sort of special spite against her, when in fact when you get down to it he was being relatively open with her.  He wasn't ready to welcome anyone really.  But he was grateful to her for helping him during the Judoon invasion and he wanted to repay her the best way he knew how.  And he did.  He didn't owe Martha anything beyond what he promised her.  

Of course in the end, he realized what a great companion she could make and so he finally welcomed her aboard.  He didn't have to welcome her on anymore than he needed to reciprocate her romantic feelings for him.

Some people will mock Tennant's delivery of his "love of humanity" speech in The Impossible Planet because they think it's hammy.  I personally love it.  It looks like he's just expressing more fully the same kind of thing that he expressed about humanity in The Ark in Space - a moment which incidentally was played in a slightly over the top way by Tom Baker.

@Silent_Angel I disagree.  He suffered consequences all the time for his arrogance and I think he became less so as he went on.  He was extremely hubristic near the end, but he still paid the consequences for it, and moreover he did it willingly because he was aware of his hubris.

@Silent_Angel A. I disagree with your estimate about Ten's development, but more importantly, B. he's just had different development.  Not more or better.  Just different.  Ten's development was just a bit slower, and now that Capaldi's major conflict from his last series has been somewhat resolved, I suspect his will slow down a bit as well.

@BriodeNebuliser @Timhogan And come on.  The aliens only farted and waddled once and I don't think it was even supposed to be that funny.  I think the looks of confusion and slight perturbedness of the people interacting with them are closer to what we were supposed to be feeling.  The point wasn't for us to go "Dee hee, de aliens is fartin'....", the point is that they are actually taking time to laugh at a fart joke while they are actively trying to destroy our home and sell off the bits because they are disgusting creatures with no f*cks to give.

@BriodeNebuliser @Timhogan I'm trying to remember when the entire population responded with bemusement to an invasion and the only time I can really think of was in Army of Ghosts.  But even then that was a while after the ghosts had showed up, after everyone had had their panics and everyone looked around and realized "Wait.  These things really aren't doing anything..." and then just calmly integrated them into their lives which I don't think is a wholly unrealistic depiction of what would happen in real life.

The only other time I can recall is when the Racnoss ship came down in The Runaway Bride and I'll grant you that more people in that case would probably start panicking before the lasers started firing.  But other than that....

To be honest, the only one of these classic stories that I've watched yet is The Ark in Space.  And, yeah sure, the Wyrrn could work in a Capaldi story I feel.  I really, really don't care for the idea of a Vashta Nerada return though.  They worked great as a one off and I struggle to think how they could work as well again.
