I'm not convinced that whole series should become one long arc. But I do think more two or even three part episodes would be great for particular stories. There's a few flavours of "classic" Who that the team should consider bringing back into the show IMO. Doctor Who is great but there's always scope for a bit more greatness ;) One thing that could be brought back a scarier, more sinister quality - basically the sort of weird, creepy shiz that can stick with you all week (or a lifetime). The other thing I'd like to see more of are longer, more involved stories, where we can become more immersed in a world. Particularly too as you cannot beat a good Doctor Who cliffhanger. One of my favourite post-2005 moments was the cliffhanger to Silence In The Library. Such a "classic" Who cliffhanger moment. "Zombie" Dave stumbling after the Doctor and River's team ("Hey, who turned out the lights?!"); Donna having seemingly been killed and her face recycled on a "node"; and River asking desperately, "Doctor! What do we do?".... and then the theme music sting coming in, along with that feeling of, "How am I going to make it a whole week before we find out what happens??" That would be a really great thing :D

Hold up folks! Let's be clear on what Moffat actually said/asked. I read the article in DW Magazine and he basically simply set a challenge to fans to identify the first episode in which the production team made explicit that the Doctor was alien. He never suggested that the Doctor might be human. I find all of this consequent babble to actually be quite bizarre!

I have to make the point that HD close-ups of the old Dalek props wouldn't have done them any favours at all. Unless the production team had wanted to rebuild them and even slightly remodel them for the screen, their inclusion as anything other than background decoration would have been a mistake imo.

@ilyootha @IanChesterton1  I don't think that means anything whatsoever. I watched the video, read the blurb, gave it a chance. It's a horrible idea badly executed. Nothing more hackneyed than a Young (Insert Name of Hero) concept. My opinion. You aren't forced to read it or consider it ;)

@CalebBeck @IanChesterton1  I'm perfectly calm, thanks. But I do have a strong opinion. I'm therefore using the comment section in a perfectly reasonable, inoffensive manner that does not violate any rules.

@The8thDoctor @IanChesterton1  Incorrect. Their stated plan is to pitch the "pilot" to networks in the attempt to get it commissioned. Therefore BBC endorsement is kinda required. It is perfectly reasonable to question the judgement and even maybe the morality of attempting to raise over a million pounds for a project that clearly cannot fulfil its stated end goal

@The8thDoctor @IanChesterton1  Happily it seems like they have no chance of raising the funds. And if they did, what's the point? The BBC will never endorse it.

Doctor Who TV staff --- can we please get some comment from Steven Moffat about this Wild Endeavour thing. Someone from the BBC needs to reassure me that this abomination will not be allowed.

@YgorVale  The BBC will not tolerate it. Mainly because it looks awful

Ugh! No offense to anyone involved but "A Wild Endeavour" looks utterly awful. The guy who's clearly going to be playing the young Doctor is awful. Anything dealing with this period of the Doctor's life is clearly out of bounds and an utter "No No" for any true fan. The BBC will never license it. Am I correct in thinking that Russell T Davies was so horrified by the idea of a Young Doctor Who that he created the SJC instead for CBBC.I mean, what the absolute f**k is this? Yee Jee Tso - get a real acting job.
