I feel like the return of Gallifrey would suite a regeneration. i.e. The Doctor regenerating to bring it back. Back in the day when we didn't know a new Doctor was coming. Um, pre-new series maybe? i don't know. I wasn't alive then.
I was a surprise regeneration, and it to be important with the return of Gallifrey. But also Capaldi to not go.

I kinda like the idea of Shona being an additional companion along side Clara. Be awesome to have a 3 way mate dynamic going on. I liked that the Ponds and the Doctor felt like that in the end. Be nice to have it without any weird relations.

I thought Doctor Who was meant to scare children behind the sofas? I mean, with all these nostalgia programmes that aired around the 2000s that spoke of Doctor Who, they painted it as this terror that aired on the TV on Sunday evenings. It's OK to have family shows that are not appropriate for some children who are easily scared. If parents are that concerned, they can pre-screen the episode and watch it later with their bundles of joy if they deem it safe enough. The magic of watching LIVE TV is shallow anyway.

People criticising the science in an episode about trees that magically appear and disappear? I just thought it was one of those "shut up and go with it" episodes. A fantasy episode.
I can understand criticisms of Kill The Moon though. But not magicforestland.

I found it a little troubling that the Master snogged the Doctor because this sexual tension hasn't really been stated before (as far as I knew). There was a bit of brotherly love in The Last of the Timelords, but I thought it was due to RTD's style of writing. I wouldn't dibelieve if perhaps the two had a sexual chemistry in the past, it would have just been nice if it was hinted of more. Because it came across as "Master now has woman anatomy, and now wants the Doctor". My opinion on a female Doctor is that I am indifferent. I think it would be interesting if for future castings of the Doctor, it was open to anyone, and the best acting person is chosen. Some arguments against is people's perception of Moffat's inability to write non-River female characters. Moffat only does this like 50% of the time (that stat taken from the same University of "Makeitupshire). So if Moffat is headwriter, I don't expect it to be awful. It's been established in lore than it can happen, and it also seems that The Doctor's regenerations are chaotic. Seems by pure luck he has always been in a human male form. I don't think gender politics of the past should affect the casting choices for the future. I disagree with people who say the Doctor MUST be a woman. I disagree with people who say the Doctor MUST NEVER be a woman. I simply do not mind .

@SonicTheHedgehogRules @Notsosmartguy Approves of female Master I agree it's a shame that there was already an existing villainous Timelady. But it seems that they had written for the Master first and cast Gomez to play it. Perhaps if they replaced Master with Rani it wouldn't have made sense (perhaps a large shift in personality? I have never watched an episode with the Rani so I don't know what she's like. She comes across as cold and intelligent. Not off-centre)
5 months, 2 weeks ago on Capaldi and Moffat on the Master’s Gender Change
@Beasts_a_Snarling is Really..... THE MASTER ! That is what I hoped when they cast The Doctor. That they cast the best suited person regardless of gender. And I think they may have done it with Gomez. What we've seen of her so far I like a lot. I hope the next hour will be a treat and not a disappointment. Especially since we know she *can* play the Master amazingly.
@Beasts_a_Snarling is Really..... THE MASTER ! I think the reveal was as subtle as it could have been. I can't think how they could have been even more subtle without red herring it. Like having a sign behind her say "I AM THE RANI. HONEST. SRS"
1) It's fantasy. It's fiction. Doctor Who is not an opinion on how reality works. 2) I can understand if it disturbs children (family show). BUT, Doctor Who is known to be the child-frightener. Probably not traumatising as Mister Blobby or other satanic inventions, but still Doctor Who is the infamous "hide behind the sofa as a child" series. You sort of knew what you were getting yourselves into.

An aspect of this assumes that Timelord biology is similar to human biology. That being male or female as a Timelord/Gallifreyan is as significant as a human. It's naturally to use our own planet as a way to describe life from other worlds. We have no other way to comprehend. But it does limit us. We can only understand Timelords in terms of human. Maybe the difference hormonally between Timelords and Timeladies is less than that of human men and women. I personally do not care. I suppose one could see when The Master Race was born, that The Master did not mind having the physical appearance of a human male in human female clothing. To the master, gender identity is irrelevant. His gender does not define him in anyway. It just so happens he's always chosen/been in a male form. I do wonder if they'll ever mention this in the finale or whether we'll have to wonder *why*. Part of me do feel like it's a shame that they decided the change the gender of The Master to create a villainous Timelady instead of bringing back the Rani who is already a Timelady who's villainous. I've never seen an episode with The Rani, so I have no idea if Gomez' performance would be too much of a change from previous Ranies. Maybe Gomez cast as The Master is indeed the best choice. I do enjoy her performance.

@Bored of Clara Who Clara deserves nothing. But that's irrelevant. It's irrelevant what Clara deserves. No one deserves anything at all. No one is entitled to anything. People like Clara when she has flaws because people have flaws. Clara had lost the person who she would happily send the rest of her boring human life with. Clara was hurting. Clara knew there was a way to get him back through time travel. Her grief clouded her judgement. Her heart betrayed her. She betrayed her best friend because she had lost so much. She did a human thing. She defended what she loved. The Doctor is not human. The Doctor forgave her. The scene reveals a lot about the both of them. The scene shows what unconditional love. The Doctor loves Clara (in a none romantic way) regardless of if it's deserved or not, because it's unconditional.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on 12 Great Moments From Dark Water
I agree with 1). It shows the human flaw of intense selfishness when something loved is taken from them. You'd do anything to restore them or for vengeance. It's a flaw that's so easily fallen into. When your heart betrays you. What Clara did was very human, even if it was a dream. She still did it. Amy killed the woman who made her infertile and stole her baby in cold blood in an aborted timeline. Does that mean that never happened? It's irrelevant. Amy made the choice is what mattered. The Doctor forgiving Clara is very powerful. It shows how much he loves her. He loves her *unconditionally*. (another inadvertent Christian undertone to add to the pile :P)
I prefer subtle arcs that you won't pick up on unless you notice them. I liked the Bad Wolf and Saxon thing because you didn't realise there was an arc until halfway or later into the series. But if there needs to be a big arc, it'd be great if it felt like a journey. Like the quest to find Gallifrey or something like that. Maybe we're a bit tired of the "trap arc". Where you have an breadcrumb trail in the series that is relevant to the finale

@jamesanash101 I'm a Christian. Doctor Who is a story, so what is expressed in there is of no consequence. The stories contain Christian (and maybe other faiths) elements sometimes. The Doctor is the flawed characters who tries to be good. I don't think it's wrong at all to draw from religious ideas or concepts for the purpose of narrative, as long as it's not done in spite. The Silence doesn't bother me as it's an example of "Organised Religion", where the "laws" risk eclipsing the actual point of it all. The Silence went over zealous and forsaken whatever path the Papal Mainframe follows in the pursuit of vengeance/resolution. To me, an issue is viewers who get offended by any amount of religious referencing appearing on the media they're viewing. As if they have some bitterness resentment to the whole idea of it all. They cannot disconnect this association. I feel really sorry for these people. I feel sorry for people who are religious but get offended by fantasy representation of Religion. The thing is fiction. If it offends you, then, that's an issue you have. On the internets, faith is very interesting, It causes a lot of people to get butt hurt.

@Mercy Reborn2 The Doctor had good intent. But I think his actions were not good. I think Clara's criticism was justified, but I also think The Doctor's opinion was justified.

I find excessive lip kissing sorts of dampens the affect of it. A kiss is symbolic, but seeing it a lot loses the symbolism somewhat. I feel like the kiss was shoe-horned it. True it was the only way to share oxygen, but that was a scenario invented. I generally dislike kisses being shoe horned in anyway. I suppose on the plus side, it shows to people who are of not a shut mind that two individuals of the same sex having a lip kiss is normal.

@EternalDoctor Last second half series it felt like the guest writers were afraid at writing Clara. As though they didn't want to tread on Moffat's feet (impossible girl arc). Perhaps this collaboration might be a good thing as any fear at writing a character won't come across as approaching bland.
8 months, 1 week ago on Series 8: All Titles Revealed
What I dislike about the article is: Mentioning Clara might be leaving the show. "...but everyone agrees it is a part that should change after a period." For some reason, that quote comes across as being bitchy. I really hate the tone of that line. "It was very much a mutual decision." is also bitchy. "It’s important to keep the series moving and fast-paced..." and again. What I HATE about these sort of stories is that it can never be confirmed. But, when the actor ISN'T leaving, and they see these stories, how will it affect them? Will it plant the idea in their heads. Will they think "Oh, maybe I ought to leave?" I wished people didn't care. Why can't we have these episodes where the companion leaves the show unexpectedly. Knowing ahead of time ruins the enjoyment. The Pond's Leaving Episode wasn't "Oh, will the Ponds make it out alive?" No, it's was "SPOT THE DEATH!" Felt almost like if Doctor Who did an episode based on Final Destination.
8 months, 1 week ago on Jenna Coleman Leaving at Christmas?
Personally, I find it annoying when I know the Doctor is not in any peril. If an episode puts the Doctor in danger, you know he will make it out alive (unless the Actor is said to be leaving). It kind of ruins the tension. It means that the Doctor has to face a different sort of threat for it to be riveting viewing. As annoying as the ambiguity is, and how much we'd love Capaldi to stay on forever and ever, especially doing more than one series, this uncertainty means that the writers can put the Doctor in dangerous situations, and you wonder if he's going to end up regenerating or not.

The woman in the shop could just be Riversong. You know how good she is at ensuring events happen as they planned (giving the book to Amy to type up to ensure the destiny trap). I mean, there's a good reason why Clara didn't recognise River during the "meeting" during Name of. How many faces of shop assistants do you actually recognise if you've only seen them once? I think when the "Spoilers" about how Clara and River could still be connected is addressed, the shop will be too.

8 months, 3 weeks ago on Does Deep Breath Really Deserve a Theatrical Release?
"In the case of The Doctor" - I realised this might be misunderstood. Since The Doctor is so Old, is a Timelord, and we never know how their appearances gets chosen during a regeneration, there's a good chance that somehow, the appearance of one of his regenerations might resemble a "face" that has existed before. Since the criteria is a closely-similar face, the probability is much higher compared to an identical face (hence why the three faces many look different (age wise or make up application).
8 months, 3 weeks ago on Capaldi’s Familiar Face Addressed in a Low-key Way
Genes affects our physical appearance, as does environmental influences. Eventually, due to the laws of probability, you will have two faces that look similar enough. In the case of The Doctor, you may even have three faces. I think the explanation is down in the idea of somethings are not infinite. In a universe of space and time that is infinite in vastness, you will get some repetitions.
@floppy_who I'm sort of a Goth but I wear brown and green. Colours are just colours. If you like a colour, wear it. Perhaps some people feel like they need to express their fandom in that way. You can express fandom for things in anyway. There is no right or wrong way (apart from murder etc...)
