I'm definitely for it. All that matters to me is if the actor or actress gives a great performance and carries on the core spirit and character of the Doctor. Age, race, and gender are irrelevant.

At this point, I'm really hoping that Clara at least sticks around until halfway through Series 9. If she leaves then I'll be satisfied with her tenure and I'll then be overcome with excitement over finding out who the next companion will be! And this special looks very interesting.

I voted for Clara for the first half and a new companion for the second half. I think that would be fitting. Clara's introduced in the second half of Series 7 and she leaves in the first half of Series 9. Still, I do really love Clara and 12 together but I'm also looking forward to seeing what new companions reside in 12's future.

@MrRazza, Lord Tony of Blackburn I'm a bit scattered when it comes to Classic Who. I've seen four episodes from Hartnell's first season (An Unearthly Child, The Daleks, The Edge of Destruction, and The Aztecs), Pertwee's first episode, The Five Doctors, and countless clips of various episodes from various Doctors' eras here and there.

I expected the top three to be Tennant, Smith, and Tom Baker in any order but I am very happy to see Eccleston get so much love. While Tennant was my first Doctor and the one who ultimately got me into Doctor Who (who also went on to become my favorite Doctor), Eccleston's era was the first era of Doctor Who I watched in full (before continuing on into the rest of New Who). That alone makes his Doctor hold a special place in my heart.

@KCi Williams is Moffat @NineTenElevenTwelve I'm always happy to see some positivity in the fandom. Being one of the more optimistic and positive fans, I sometimes get a bit tired from all the negativity. Everyone has a right to their own opinions and I respect them but I still find myself getting annoyed by it (especially when it all boils down into arguing and insults). So it always comes as a breath of fresh air to me when I see some good, ol' positivity in the fandom.

The title seems to be really pushing forward the possibility of this being Clara's last episode. If she does end up leaving, I hope it isn't because she dies. I'm hoping it's because she's pregnant with Danny's child. That way, Orson Pink can still happen! If this is what ends up happening, I'd like the final scene of the episode to be a flash forward by a few years to show Clara raising her kid. She could be out walking in the snow with her kid when she spots the Doctor in the distance. The two share a nod and smile of acknowledgement before the Doctor goes back into the TARDIS and disappears to parts unknown. Clara then continues to walk off with her child, ready to face the rest of her life.

Blink was the first episode I watched. It instantly hooked me and got me interested in the series. While I did go back to the beginning and watched all of the revived series in order starting with Rose, David Tennant was ultimately my first Doctor and he remains to be my favorite.

I respect your opinions but I disagree with them as I found Michelle Gomez to be a superb Mistress/Master. I could definitely see echoes of previous Masters within her. She had the manipulative sophistication that all Masters had with a few welcome doses of craziness that John Simm's incarnation gave us. However, what I disagree with you the most on is your decision to quit Doctor Who if the Doctor becomes a woman. I don't want to come off as rude but this complaint annoys me. As long as the actor (or actress) gives a great performance and continues the essence of the Doctor, that's all that should really matter. The Doctor isn't going to stop being the Doctor simply because he becomes a she. This is just like when people were complaining about Matt Smith being too young and Peter Capaldi being too old. Age and gender are irrelevant when it comes to a character who could literally regenerate into anything. If the show continues on for quite some time, we're going to see the Doctor take on many different faces. He'll be old, he'll be young, he could be ginger, he could be black, he could be asian, and, yes, he could become a woman. Times are changing and the world is evolving. I have a feeling that we will see a female Doctor one day. Again, all that should matter is that the actor or actress fits the role of the Doctor. That's my opinion anyway.

@Clara Bosswald wants a Kate Stewart Spin-off I agree with most of your points. I liked the home scenes back in the RTD era though I agree that Series 8 found the better balance. I also was a bit more interested in the series arc than you were. That's pretty much it. I agree with everything else you said. And, yes, a spin-off involving Kate would be very nice. Marvel already has its Agents of Shield. It's about time Doctor Who got its UNIT!

@Clara Laurinda @JFrance I found it very interesting to see how Capaldi's Doctor interacted with children in comparison to Smith's Doctor. From how I see it, Smith's Doctor was more like the fun, eccentric uncle while Capaldi's Doctor was more like the grouchy yet lovable grandfather.

I adored Series 8 and it's easily one of my favorite seasons of the revived series. At the very least, I enjoyed every episode. It was a fantastic debut season for Capaldi's Doctor and, if she's leaving soon, it was a wonderful definitive season for Clara Oswald. While I loved Tennant's and Smith's Doctors, Capaldi was a welcome breath of fresh air. I quickly took a liking to him and now, as with Tennant and Smith, I adore him. I can't wait to see what the future of his tenure holds (adventures, monsters, companions, the like).

I've liked all of the finales. I just like some more than others. But my favorite is definitely The Name of the Doctor. Outstanding performances all around, great pacing, a great resolution to the Impossible Girl arc, tons of fantastic fanservice, a wonderful supporting cast in River and the Paternoster Gang, intimidating monsters in the Whispermen, and a mind-shattering ending twist with the reveal of John Hurt as the War Doctor!

I'm very interested in seeing how this Christmas special plays out. Nick Frost as Santa. Clara returning. Alien-esque monsters at the North Pole. All of it has certainly grabbed my curiosity. In relation to Clara, I see this going in one of two ways. Either this will be Clara's final adventure with the Doctor or she'll decide to join the Doctor again and we'll get another season of Clara Oswald. I'm fine with either, if you ask me. If she leaves then I'll be satisfied with her fantastic tenure and I'll begin to excitably anticipate the arrival of the next companion. If she stays then I get to see more adventures involving my second favorite TARDIS team. It's a win-win for me!

I'm not sure whether I'm giving a popular or unpopular opinion here, given how thoughts about this episode seem to be all over the place, but I loved this finale. It has its flaws and I think "Dark Water" was superior but I still loved it. It was dark, it had a great villain in Michelle Gomez's Missy/Mistress, it was emotional, and it was an overall satisfying conclusion to Series 8. I'm really looking forward to seeing where the story goes from here!

@Polyphase @NineTenElevenTwelve Yeah. And people are saying how the gender change has ruined the character of the Master. Yep. They could handle dancing to pop music, hand blasts, eating disorders, flying, and x-ray jump cuts but becoming a woman is where they draw the line. Some of the people in this fandom make my brain hurt. But, in all honesty, I actually like The End of Time and I found it to be a fitting conclusion for both Tennant's Doctor and Simm's Master.

"This is my world too. I walk your Earth and breathe your air." I have a pretty good feeling that this is coming from the Doctor. That means he really listened to what Clara had to say to him back in Kill the Moon and took it to heart. That...or it could be some tree entity that's the cause of the problem in this episode. Just have to wait and see, I suppose.

I've really enjoyed Capaldi's Doctor. He's a welcome change from the "boyfriend-type" Doctors that were Ten and Eleven. I absolutely adored Ten and Eleven, with Ten keeping the spot as my all-time favorite Doctor, but I'm also beginning to adore Twelve. I've liked him throughout all of Series 8 but it wasn't until the epic "I am a Doctor" scene in Flatline that I finally reached the point of adoring Capaldi's Doctor. The first series of each new Doctor is always the rockiest in terms of their characterization and traits as both the actor and writers are working on finding a specific set of traits for the new Doctor to stick with throughout the rest of his tenure. I'm really liking Capaldi's development (and Clara's alongside it). The little celebration dance he did in Flatline is proof enough that Capaldi's Doctor is already starting to mellow out a bit. I predict that by Series 9 we'll see a friendlier but still unpredictable and intimidating Twelfth Doctor. I can't wait to see how Series 8 concludes and I'm excited about what the future holds for the Twelfth Doctor!

An interesting alternate take on this argument. I've personally loved both the Doctor and Clara throughout Series 8 but, thanks to this article, I can now understand where some of the arguments are coming from (keyword being some). The first series for any new Doctor is always the rockiest in terms of their characterization as they're going about finding that Doctor's own quirks and personality traits. Also add in the fact that Clara is a crossover companion whose second Doctor is less friendly than her first (the only other crossover companion with this situation was Peri Brown as most crossover companions tend to get a friendlier in comparison second Doctor). I can understand Clara's frustration (which I could literally write an entire essay about explaining her thoughts and actions throughout Series 8 but I'd rather not do it here). If Clara ends up staying on through Series 9, I'll predict that she'll be on more friendly terms with the Twelfth Doctor as she will have gotten used to his personality and be familiar with what type of Doctor he is.

I'm liking the idea of the Doctor, Clara, and Danny leading a group of kids through an overgrown London. I'm getting some strong 11/young Amy vibes from the pics with the Doctor and the girl in the red jacket. Should be an interesting episode. Hopefully, these kids will be more likable than Angie and Artie were (though, for the record, I didn't dislike Angie and Artie as much as everyone else seems to).

This episode was simply amazing. A great supporting cast, great monsters, excellent effects, and both the 12th Doctor and Clara got to shine exceptionally. I've adored Capaldi's Doctor throughout this season but this episode is what made me completely fall in love with his character; and it was great to see the 12th Doctor finally get his epic "I am the Doctor" moment. This may actually tie with Listen for being my favorite episode of Series 8. 10/10 from me.

@Ottoman14 To be fair here, is there a rule that states that all companions need to have the same reactions to certain situations? Clara is different from other companions because she's a different person, as is every other companion in relation to each other. Yeah, some companions wouldn't find it amusing but I'm sure that there are some who would (given that there was no immediate danger to the Doctor, themselves, or anyone they care for because of it). Not to mention that what we saw in this clip was merely a portion of a larger scene. Who's to say, as of now, that Clara didn't have a more shocked reaction prior to the events in this clip?
