@Christoph1337 @YaelMoise Actually, I forgot about Smith and Jones. I was thinking about The Moonbase and The Seeds of Death :)

@Temporal Tomato Think he means the cancellation rather than the Doctor. Sylvester McCoy in the figurative sense.

@Adric the Genius @Aztecs, Daleks and Cavemen THANK YOU!!! I remembered he changed a bulb once, but I could not for the life of me remember when that was. Thank you :)

@Planet of the Deaf @Dalekium The Doctor starts a burlesque group and doesn't let Clara join? I think THAT's where the pitchforks and torches mob really shows up on Moffat's front lawn. lol

I realise I should have asked this in the main thread, but it only occurred to me just now, while playing the episode in the background while I do something else.
Is the actress who did the woman in the barn... the same one who does Jenny? The voice sounds awfully similar. I'm not suggesting it's the same character, but it doesn't sound like the same actress. Can't find any information on IMDB or Wikipedia, though.

@Angie Whodini escapes from under the bed Hey, I am still reserving judgement, and unwilling to say something like "I'm sure *insert future episode name here* will be my most favorite ever!!!".
Half tempted to do something does not mean I'm doing it. :P
The above sounding pretty amazing just means that the above sounds pretty amazing. Past experiences with the current series have taught me caution where press releases are concerned.
For better or worse, they rarely tend to convey the true flavour of the end product all that well.
However, the above does sound awesome and did leave me speechless with anticipation for a good 5 minutes or so. So, yeah... God help me... I might actually be REALLY looking forward to them.

@Mermeht I'd even settle for him off-screen. You know... the headmaster just goes into a meeting with the board of governors or something like that. But, yeah, a full-on cameo would be amazing.

@Aztecs, Daleks and Cavemen Considering the place was about to blow up shortly after they left it the first time... I'm rather happy about that.

@MaraBackman @YaelMoise @stargazer0118 Naturally. I just felt a little realism needed to be injected. You may now proceed with your flights of fantasy. ;)

@supermoff is playing Grand Theft Karabraxos... @The Lazy Cat is in on the Time Heist I don't know. I didn't really see him as unstable and erratic. More like... the bastard child of 4th and 7th. There were distinct notes in his curiosity and single-mindedness that reminded me of 7th in Ghost Light. And his treatment of Clara's looks, not just in this episode, but in the previous one as well, was nearly pure 4th Doctor with a slight hint of 11th sprinkled on top.
Didn't feel unstable and erratic. Just felt... Classic :D

@supermoff is playing Grand Theft Karabraxos... @YaelMoise Well, I didn't really expect SARN per se. I mean, the place was about to blow up when he left it. But I was holding out a sneaking little hope for a trip to Trion and a secret hush-hush Turlough cameo. :(
15 hours, 15 minutes ago on DWM: Things will never be the same again after Kill the Moon
It just occurred to me (what can I say... I'm slow sometimes) that the "place the Doctor has been in the past" and is "returning to find that things have changed and not for the better" is the moon. I mean, he's been there at least twice, hasn't he.
15 hours, 20 minutes ago on DWM: Things will never be the same again after Kill the Moon
@DaftDalek is Ceter Papaldi @Gustaff @prjohnnyrivera Doesn't look to me like he's going to kill her... but it definitely looks like he's relishing the thought of her getting killed. IT's very unnerving.
Gustaff, I like your picture very much, btw. It looks very gentleman-like. :)
15 hours, 23 minutes ago on DWM: Things will never be the same again after Kill the Moon
@The Lazy Cat is in on the Time Heist I gotta say, it's one of my favorite things about the current series, the uncertainty. It makes the series 6 mysteries look positively tame by comparison.
15 hours, 27 minutes ago on DWM: Things will never be the same again after Kill the Moon
This is actually not something I'm all that looking forward to. As I've once told a boyfriend who suggested I read 1984 - "Life is depressing by design... I don't need to depress myself manually by other means". Still... reserving judgement, as usual. Reserving judgement.

@supermoff is playing Grand Theft Karabraxos... @ Notsosmartguy: Time Thievious Racoonus Nah, sorry. 66 is scarier than all of them. The longer you have to think, the scarier is it. :P

Ok, so the episodes sound... pretty awesome. As usual, I reserve judgement till I actually see them... but they sound... pretty damn awesome. I mean, to the point where I'm half tempted to start spouting unfounded overly optimistic predictions. Seriously... pretty damn awesome.

@Planet of the Deaf @Gustaff I'm pretty sure we all have, repeatedly, since the "Next Time" trailer at the end of RoS ended.
17 hours, 34 minutes ago on 2nd Opinion: Listen
@Roq777 @YaelMoise @Gustaff A few points: Personally, I feel that on the whole there are a lot of intelligent people within the community. So, while I agree about the "reading because of trusted writers" thing, I also think that there are plenty of those around here other than the above. And the website has been known to reflect it. I mean, I see lots of guest written articles here and they are top notch. I think what I'm talking about could be achieved within the community without losing the sense of trust or level of quality that you point to. Secondly, I disagree that it would be forcing a devil's advocate. Differing opinions abound, even on episodes that most of us consider to be near-perfect. No forcing would be required. Finally, it's not that "more opinions aren't [my] thing". It's that I don't really see this as "more opinions". Just variations on a theme.
17 hours, 41 minutes ago on 2nd Opinion: Listen
@Planet of the Deaf @YaelMoise @LGwalchmai95 Ah... thank you :) I suppose we're back to that part of the conversation feeling odd to me, then. I suppose she said something that made her seem like she's in one of the more anti- groups. With 90% of the conversation happening off screen, I suppose we'll never know. In any case, again, thank you for the clarification. :)
18 hours, 5 minutes ago on 2nd Opinion: Listen
@LGwalchmai95 @Planet of the Deaf I realise I might be poking a nest of vipers with a very short stick here... but that part of the conversation, him having to defend himself as a soldier, him having to deal with people who assume that all he did was kill people... it seemed a bit odd to me. Ok, maybe "odd" isn't the right word for it. I have a friend in the UK who told me, a few years ago, about how his university had just voted to ban soldiers from entering university grounds in uniform. I can't imagine that working out in most other countries on the planet. Actually, I can't think of any other country where that could happen. Is it a cultural thing? Are soldiers assumed to be killers in the UK? Is there SUCH an anti-military bias there? I would love some clarification on this point.

@Wentworthian Would you mind explaining what about it makes it bad, as far as you're concerned?

@Gustaff @sontaran17 @TardisBoy And now I'm sorry I wasn't here last year...
19 hours, 28 minutes ago on 2nd Opinion: Listen
@Planet of the Deaf @YaelMoise Yeah... that part did bother me. I mean, if I had a bad date with someone, AND they seemed a little stalker-y with the whole "knows the name I changed years ago"... and then they show up at my flat? I would freak out and call the cops.
Mind you, I'm a woman. Maybe men react differently. I honestly don't know. However, that was the only part that bothered me and, like I said, for all we know it might somehow have been covered by something we didn't see. I mean, how did she know where he lives? Maybe he told her?
19 hours, 35 minutes ago on 2nd Opinion: Listen
@sontaran17 @Deus_Ex_Machina This isn't "wanting people to hate an episode". It's just wanting to hear from the people who DO.
First of all, like I tried to explain to... um... ok, his name escapes me... the other week, this is a Whovian website. Even when people "hate" an episode it's not exactly the same thing as an outsider hating it. The word has a different meaning, a different context. Hearing from people who "hate" an episode here, is slightly more constructive than hearing about it outside. It's also more interesting, because someone who dislikes an episode, even passionately, despite loving the show, will usually give you some very fertile grounds for discussion.
Secondly, like I said, there's no need to want people to hate an episode. People already do. The fact is that there ARE dislikers for each and every episode, even the "universally acclaimed" ones.
They ARE there. They, because they are Whovians, are interesting to listen to. So some of us would like to listen to them.
Even if only so we could say "Sorry, I don't agree" and secretly think "Dude, seek help" ;)
19 hours, 40 minutes ago on 2nd Opinion: Listen
@Gustaff @YaelMoise You don't agree?
21 hours, 1 minute ago on 2nd Opinion: Listen
@Planet of the Deaf Seems perfectly natural to me, to be honest.
I'm well-spoken and intelligent. Do you have any idea the nonsense I can spew when confronted by a man I really like?
And as to Danny's behaviour, to be honest, we don't see 90% of the conversation. I really don't know how to judge him based on what I saw, let alone contrast it with his behaviour in class. That said, there's a difference between a class, and a date. You react differently to room full of kids than you would to sitting across the table from someone you like.
21 hours, 3 minutes ago on 2nd Opinion: Listen
@Gustaff @YaelMoise Well, yes. People who disliked an episode are to be found every week. They're not hard to get. I'm not saying you should get a perpetual griper on to write, but I do think an effort should be made to get proper contrast, proper like/dislike, in these articles. Otherwise... well... it's not as interesting. It's just two more opinions.
21 hours, 10 minutes ago on 2nd Opinion: Listen
@Gustaff @YaelMoise I'm not contesting that they do. I'm just saying that a lack of actual contrast makes it... just the opinions of two guys, who are sort of on the same wavelength, as opposed to a proper "2nd opinion" type thing, as the title would suggest.
21 hours, 16 minutes ago on 2nd Opinion: Listen
@Gustaff @YaelMoise Then... um... maybe you should get someone else in. Even temporarily. I mean, when both agree, pick one to represent the view and get someone else to do the other half.
21 hours, 19 minutes ago on 2nd Opinion: Listen
Well written, guys... but to be honest, I don't see the point of these "2nd Opinion" articles since the new series started. They appear to me to be two guys singing the praises of an episode, from two different angles, rather than actual contrast. I've not got issues with what's written here, like I said, it's well-written... I just fail to see the point of the "column"'s structure.
21 hours, 23 minutes ago on 2nd Opinion: Listen
@Clara Laurinda @YaelMoise It's not the same word that's on the blackboard in the picture. Well... yes, it's the same word, but it's not the LISTEN that was written at the beginning, which is the one in the picture, but not the one he underlines. The writing's different.

@PaddyB Honestly, I don't get where you guys are getting this from. There's a scared little kid crying under his blanket, so he didn't reply to any of the names. So what? There's no hint about his name here. Really.

@Dalekchris @The Finn @AnthonyMercer That occurred to me, too :D
@The Lazy Cat is in on the Time Heist It was the implication... but if you think about it, he could have been given the idea that she's a relative by the Doctor asking her if she's a relative.

@stargazer0118 @supermoff is playing Grand Theft Karabraxos... I wouldn't go anywhere near the whole "She's the new Sarah Jane" thing. I think she's nowhere near that. And I agree that she WASN'T a very good character, but I do think she's changing a lot these days. Perhaps it's best to let her unfold in this new series before pronouncing a final verdict on her. I never thought my opinion of her would change, let alone improve. You never know what might happen to you by the end of the series.
Mind you... for all I know, I might go back to hating her guts. Anything can happen. :)

@Ottoman14 It felt very 4th Doctor in City of Death to me. I liked it. :)
"You're a beautiful woman... probably."
Looking at the "Step back in time" bit of this page, I can see the "Listen Promo Pics" article link. There's a photo there of the Doctor, standing next to the word "Listen" with a chalk in his hand.
Just a thought (kidding, actually): But is that a clue as to who wrote the word?
