Word up to the bluray owners of this set. The Day Of The Doctor was mastered in 1080p24 instead of the native 1080i50, and they did this by taking the previously mastered 3D version and removing the second video channel. It plays back slower than it should, and you will occasionally see black bars in your image on the left or right side. The BBC are offering replacements as of a few weeks ago that has a master in 1080i50.

Saving Ross would have resulted in the Doctor's death. Can't have her boyfriend dying, can we? ;)

Seems to have the exact same effect just as you think they're going to die. Fade to and from white. Can you say Gretchin actually died on the basis of that?

Too many comments to browse though. But did anyone notice a big clue about Missy? In particular, how the Doctor similarly grabbed someone at the point of death?

I know a few people around the office who'd write in, actually. Where should I send such a thing?

Aussie in Finland. Waiting to see if Deep Breath makes it to theaters over here. Makes a bit more sense that we've heard nothing now that I have an idea of how Who in Finland has come along.

Most fandoms are the same in my experience, just not so cleanly divided in to eras like DW is. It's pretty hard wanting to know everything about a show and seeing the comments section of any article being a flame war fairground.

Kinda glad that both I wasn't old enough and that the Internet wasn't a thing when Star Trek: The Next Generation was new. Apparently the vitriol between sides was just as harsh.

@DalekAgent Well, if we're doing FYIs on things we already know, Daleks didn't appear in the old school series 5, 6, 7, or 8. A gap of four years. Then they appeared in 9, 10, 11, and 12 before having another gap of four years. If you look at those figures and compare it to the "overuse" claim that goes around fandom with the modern series, a more astute conclusion would be that the new series has not given the Daleks extensive gaps like the old series did, so the anticipation of a new Dalek story is more of an "Again?" rather than an "About time!"

Ten stories, hey? In between Jon Pertwee starting and the show's revival in 2005, there were eight Dalek stories.
