@russell t dalek actually it just sounds like Forest of the Night and Dark Water Clara...
Am I the only one freaking out already? Series 9 come on. Oh gosh oh gosh.
I was having such a bad day when I read this and watched the video. Gomez is amazing! "I'm baaack!"
Loved the new title and how it's like a counter-part of the first one. Oh Series 9, the hype!!

3 weeks, 1 day ago on How Often Does Doctor Who Pass The Bechdel Test?
@AceEverett @TheOncomingHurricane @Reeze, agent of C.L.A.R.A. I'm sorry but no one is saying that the Doctor should meet one LGBT community member, two women who talk with each other, one disabled person and one transgered person by episode. However, it is said that the represatantion of those classes could be improved and that's quite the fact.
We all watch Doctor Who for having fun, because we like the stories, but it could be better. It's okay to take criticism about something you like.
@The Taker What I don't get it is how represanting all those people you mentioned would cause harm to telling the story. There is a movie about a blind gay boy (the way he looks) and the gay thing is never an issue. The issue is the romance and the fact the boy is gay. But both parties are pretty ok with their sexuality. The story-telling focus on the hardships of a blind teenager instead of a gay one. No story-telling harmed.
@AlessandroArsuffi It doesn't measure sexism, just female represantation in a show. And yes, that is one of the flaws of the test. No one said it was absolute and no one said the show was sexist or racist.
@Oodkind But no one is "throwing a fit". It's just showing us data. Yes, Listen had a very limited cast, but what if Orson was Orsine, a woman of colour? What if she was a lesbian? Would that hurt the cast? Nops. Would that hurt the plot? Nops. Exchange Orson for Orsine and BANG you'd have two gals talking to each other.
It also should be noted that just because women appear talking 'bout men that isn't a bad thing. In Mummy in The Orient Express there's that dialogue between Clara and some lady and they're talking about relationships and the Doctor. It's a very powerful scene and it doesn't lose its credit just because they're talking about a dude. What is worrysome is when media solely focus on this kind of stuff. Besides, having a LGBT member in a soviet submarine doesn't strike me as innacurate. As far as I know of, LGBT members can be Russian. And get into submarines. .
New Earth is a fun episode but honestly it didn't get me much hooked for the rest of the season. Cassandra in Tennant's body was way fun though. Overall it's a good episode.
Tooth and Claw is one of those pearls that I forget that exists. Plus it shows Rose being brave and not just as romantic interest for 10th, which is something I'd miss in the next episodes.
School Reunion and The Girl in The Fireplace, though pretty different between each other were really awesome. Not even Mickey ruined them for me.
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Rank the Revival: 2006 Part 1
@TheNightmareChild Yes, I'm the same about rating. I don't think there'll be many episodes lower than 7 for me because basically I just love Dr. Who :( (tho I'll wait for the Series 3 poll)
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Rank the Revival: 2005 Part 3
10/10/10/10. Oh I just love the end of Series 1. Boom Town has great moments of 9th, and the scene with him, Rose and Jack laughing together is really cute and funny. Plus it brings to us the last keyplot to the grand finale: The Heart of the Tardis. Which by the way I think it's an awesome concept that should be seen again.
Then we have Bad Wolf. Just seeing the name on my screen I was thinking OH JESUS BAD WOLF IT'S NOW SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES. And I was soooo ready. I love all of it, mainly because of the confusion in the beggining. Where are they? Why did they get separated? Why did they forget how they got there? When is Captain Jack gonna visit silly old me? Then the episode gets darker and edgier and DALEKS. AND DEAD ROSE. AND NOT SO DEAD ANYMORE ROSE. AND NINE BEING AWESOME.
The Parting of The Ways just keeps it up. We have the red shirt annoying guy, the Daleks invading, Nine being awesome all over again and I could keep going on and on. These two episodes are one of my favourites 'til nowadays.
As for the Christmas Invasion. Well, it's Christmas. With an Alien Invasion. With David Tennant (and Jackie!). The only thing that could bother me in the episode was Mickey, but he was...tolerable. All of those fit the Modern Classic category in my eyes so all of them got their 10.
Dalek, The Empty Child and The Doctor Dances are quite the modern classics IMO, so they deserve the 10.
Father's Day is quite a great episode because of Rose's background and because I just love to see Jackie. So it got an 8.
The long game is fun and it gets my curiosity going but there's something odd in it. I do like how it links up later with the Series Finale, but, as it stands on its own, it'll get a 7.

Poor Series 7. :( Don't worry, I'll love ya to the end. You did give me three different Clara Oswlads after all.

@not764 Well sorry to break it to you but every author has to deal with this at some point. It is laughable to think that you can get away with saying everything you wish to just because there is freedom of speech. Freedom of speech actually means that everybody has the right to feel offended and talk about it. At the same time, the author has every right to keep his work as it is. But you can't dismiss people's opinion because then where would be the freedom of speech you used to offend (wether you meant it or not) them?
Just so you know freedom of speech isn't the only right in the world. There are consequences for everything we say and for everything we do. Though I'm being quite poetic here, it was Newton who said that for every action there is a reaction right? That just isn't physics. It's the way life works.
You're being quite rude classifying people's opinions as "bitching". Please, be careful with your wording, as there is no need to resource to those kind of vocabulary.
And no one is denying anyone's freedom of speech. It's not like the author of the article put a gun on Toby's head and told him CHANGE THE WAY YOU WRITE OR YOU DIE. She's just criticizing his work, and every writer has to deal with this. If they grow from it or if they don't, that'll actually tell us a lot more about their persona then the criticism showed beforehand.
@TheOncomingHurricane @_thomasilva @JolomontheCube That was a nice and interesting reading. I've commented a bit in this article already but I'd just like to congratulate you for being this brave. It's hard to express our opinions on such a heated topic using logic, and not only you've done it wonderfully, you opened many doors in my mind about transgender people. Thank you for that too :)
@JolomontheCube I believe he still is.
@TheOncomingHurricane @JolomontheCube What did you think of that, if may I ask?
@Djornad @LaraHarris @91 Queen of Evil @Sontaran17 after she repeatdly explains it, yes. But let's imagine someone being really rude and just saying "I'm sorry I'm rude but that's the way I am deal with it". Would you feel willing to "deal with it"? I wouldn't. And lots of people wouldn't either - so much as they actually don't.
There is a fine line between speaking up and speaking rudely. Sometimes she crosses it. I don't even know if she actually *did* this in this article because boy there're lots of comments here, but as a stalker of DWTV I can see she doing it (or being thought to do it) pretty often. So people will already read what she writes thinking she's being quite rude.
I do think it'd be weird if it was from just one person or an one-time event, but it seems to be a music stuck in repeat. :/
@TheOncomingHurricane @not764 the thing about the shirt has actually happened. well the world wasn't at his throat but lots of people took offense.
@not764 "Technically, I have every right to go up to a holocaust survivor and tell them Hitler should have won, but it hat doesn't make it a good thing."
I'm sorry. I don't know how the law works where you live, but you'd be in some sort of trouble if you did this in my country. And there's this common sense that freedom of speech is absolute (which IMHO needs to be revised) but you could wait for a law suit to drop at your door doing that. Moreover, you'd be offending someone, celebrating a genocide AND bringing back painful memories. I don't see how that can be classified as a right but ok.
"I can easily get offended by lots of stuff as a Jew, but I'm not because I realize that the writers don't always think "hmmm, I wonder if this could be offensive to someone out there..." And the rewrite the script, because that would be impossible! See my point?"
Yes, I see it. However, as I said, it isn't just because you don't feel offended that you have to dismiss the people who do. I'm not saying they're right or wrong in their criticism (tho I do think the author here has made some valid points). I'm saying that people have the right to be offended and have the right to, by all means, expose it without half of the world saying they're "looking too much into it". It's not just because you're not offended that everybody else should be the same.
I think the real issue here is telling someone they're reading too much into it. That they have no right to be offended. They do have all rights in the whole world to feel offended or not by televisions lines. It might be silly for those who don't (and I also mean transgender people that just don't mind) but in no way it takes down the author's opinion.
If the author is offended we have to respect it. I don't think that Toby would really bother to read criticism about his writing. How true of a writer are you if you just can't take any criticism? What I mean is you're all trying to dismiss the author's opinion in defense of a writer who should, by all means, READ this article. I'm not saying I agree he is or isn't transphobic. I'm just pointing out that the focus of the argument is towards the wrong direction.
Moreover someone has said that "people don't often think about transgender". And that's quite another issue here. Just because people don't mean to offend someone that this is alright. Saying your opinion with an "I'm sorry but...." "You write really good, but...". Guys the only "but" that should exist here is "we don't often think about transgender people but we could do it, couldn't we?"
Lastly, of course the author is biased. The author is coloured by experience, but then again, aren't we all? The problem here is when your experience doesn't allow you to feel offended it doesn't mean you should dismiss other's opinions. It's simple as that.
Tho I really loved almost every episode on this run, Listen is the champion without a doubt.
PS: THANK YOU DWTV for finally making an easy one. (I feel I may regret saying this later...)

2 months, 3 weeks ago on Clara, or a New Companion for Series 9?
As much as I'd like to love seeing Capaldi flying by his own, I'd say that Clara could very well enjoy one more season. The idea of leaving mid-season might be appealing, but sometimes the next companion ends up as a rushed charachter... Just like Clara herself in Season 7-B. Let her enjoy a "last hurrah" of 12/13 episodes.

3 months, 3 weeks ago on Rate & Discuss Death in Heaven
I'll need a rewatch. I don't mind having some of the questions not answered. I don't mid lots of stuff actually. But I don't know how to feel after the episode. I didn't like the resolution in Closing Time becasuse it felt cheap to me (and this is really a personal opinion guys, I tottally understand if you disagree). I was a bit "...huh" when the Doctor mentioned the promise of the soldier bla bla. Welp. I..I don't know really. I guess I'm really bothered because of Missy teleporting away or dying. I LOVED Michelle Gomez as the Mistress and she's completely Bananas. She's a villain I feel Doctor Who with Moffat has needed for a long time. No church and bla bla. Just someone who is mad for the sake of it - I just love these psychos. There were some top notch moments of course. Oh, Osgood dying...hated it. But actually loved the courage to kill her seeing she's a fan favourite. I'll rewatch this. Probably will have a stronger opinion by the time of the reviews.
@Adric the Genius we probably forgot that time when the Silence helped the Doctor at Trenzalore
@Screminmeme79 hey, no need to offend anyone :(
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Capaldi and Moffat on the Master’s Gender Change
@joe4 @Scootersfood is in love with The Mistress @The 4th Doctor @Avor Because as far we know the Mistress is pregnant of triplets and the Doctor is the father. And people do change genders. A woman is a woman wether she can give birth or not. If people are comfortable as a woman that's what they should be. If they are as a man, that's fine too. Your counter-argument is weak.
@DocWhoFan @_thomasilva @Amy is uniting the Earth Kingdom! I actually pictured Clara dropping a manual over there 'so you can read something you should've long ago'. But then I remembered he threw the manual away.
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Gender-Swapping Regenerations: Why Now?
@joe4 @supermoff is waiting for heaven.... @M-M-G and you plan to tell us that your opinion is objective in what grounds...? (opinion. objective. lol)
@AdamDanielJohnThompson I am baffled you're looking for reason in a show 'bout an alien with two hearts with a time-travelling machine that fits in my bedroom.
@Burrunjor "do you want to see them make out the female doctor will go insane without a big strong man like Rory to protect the same way ten goes mad without Rose and Martha to help him." Well just like Clara lost her mind without Danny and almost destroyed her relationship with her best friend? NO ONE is calling Moffat sexist for that because he portrayed it properly and because we all agreed: "yeah I'd do the same".
You're just changing the gender of the Doctor and inserting this supposed female Doctor into old stories. That's now what would happen. The dynamic would change, companions would change. I'm not all that up for a female doctor, as I think there are lot of things to take into consideration but this post is far from being realistic. Do you honestly think that writers (not only Moffat mind you, but Gailman and etc) would stick to the same rulebook? :/
@Amy is uniting the Earth Kingdom! I'm making a post-it of this post and sticking into my room's door.
@MarlonJBonnici Actually could you please then tell me the point for: making aliens that fart, making captain Jack pansexual (I suppose that's what he is), making 10th being the ONLY Time Lord who doesn't wanna die (because ps: he is not going to), making the Master a sort of bad-edited halloween costume etc etc. "WHY" is not a valid argument. It's a rant. (btw I have NOTHING against RTD. but as you don't like Moffat, I'm bringing him into action)
@MarlonJBonnici @DocWhoFan Oh I can ask "Why" but then I cannot ask "Why not". My. god.
@Amy is uniting the Earth Kingdom! or the 2000 years alive
This is so hard. I mean I could NEVER see it coming in Utopia. It was a slow build up with "nah it can't be" moments to "OH MY GOD BUT IT CAN AND IT IS OH MY GOD THE TARDIS OH MY GOD GOD MY OH MY WHAT ONLY NEXT WEEK?!!?" Missy being the Mistress was however my only theory and...welp. In the other hand, I really enjoyed the concepts shown in Dark Water and the Cybermen being kept in tomb-esque tanks was pretty cool. And I mean, come one, we all admit that Michelle Gomez is rocking the show. *sighs* THIS IS DIFFICULT
