I thought it was absolutely superb. Not that convinced by deep breath but by the end of into the Dalek I was a lot more confident about the new direction.

@Trex in the Thames Oddly I like all of his episodes except for the Crimson Horror and Night Terrors.

@MeglosProductions Well... it is my second least favourite Moffat script.

@JojajeVovave Hehe. Love is boring. You are such a stereotypical sci-fi fan. You've genuinely tickled my funny bone today. Thank you.

Well that's a list I struggle to get behind. 1, 2 and 3 are very low on my list of episodes in general.

@HitchcockWhovian I wonder who was responsible for the ending of WoM, it was so out of place and shows the issue of two collaborating writers on a single script. One minute characters are begging to be saved, the next damning him for doing so.

@NewWho2012 not so. Generally speaking Moffats have had massively positive AIs in his tenure, the best recieved episodes of his era. Personally I feel he excelled himself with series 7 and 5 but wandered a bit off track on series 6... but its personal opinion. By and large AI's have been consistent.

@Polyphase Since RTD left they've only been back for two full stories and a few cameos... this is #3. I feel they're being used about the right amount in the Moffat era.

@Big_Bird96 That was possibly the worst story in the shows history.
@SonicTheHedgehogRules so not cliffhangers concluded with knocking them out with a sonic screwdriver and cheesy songs to cover up the sound of murder? Last good cyberman story was Earthshock as far as I can recall

This makes me feel better, no joy getting tickets ended up sightseeing Seoul instead having flown out from japan. Did see the first part of the stream, that comedian was embarrassing, gave up and went for yakiniku.

I looked to elementary to fill the gaps between Sherlock but it was just too... Elementary in comparison, and I found the British stereotypes, particularly in the beginning of series 2 borderline insulting.

Korean world tour was a con, opened ticket sales with only 50 of 1500 seats available, (no one I've heard from was able to buy one of those 50 either) wonder how many of those remaining 1450 supposedly free tickets are being sold somewhere.
Still nice to see some fans enjoying the experience :)

@The Outer Space K9 You've never heard of Brian Blessed?! What on earth? I mean I don't think he's right as the Doctor but... it's Brian Blessed, he's a living legend.

@supermoff He also would have failed to defeat the god in Arhkatan, would have been killed by the Great Intelligence many times over, would have allowed Gallifrey to be destroyed again...

I think there should be a "special" episode, in that its something like a multi-Doctor story to make the fans squee, but the show is a continuation so I don't think it warrants a full fledged special ala Day of the Doctor.

@MeglosProductions He's really not, he's an awful writer. Power of Three is easily his best work, and it's still only average.
2 months, 1 week ago on Unpopular Opinion? The Power of Three
"Being a Nu-Who viewer, I can only know so much about how Gallifrey was before the Time War." - Apparently so. "However, what I have heard is that the Time Lords could be more villainous than friendly." - Incorrect, they were the protectors of time, they were corrupt, overly pacifistic, but what RTD butchered them into had NOTHING to do with how they were portrayed in the classic series. Like his direction or hate it, there's no reason the timelords can't come back as who they once were, or another direction. They were certainly never villainous in the traditional sense. " Pair that with the flimsy plot of bringing Gallifrey back (The War Doctor and Ten just forget what happened, seriously?), and I think it was unnecessary." - Errr no, time was re-written, but being as this is already the Doctors past the memories of new events don't catch up with him until such time as it has been re-written. He's a timelord and obviously immune to such re-write until time catches up as it were (see every previous multi-Doctor story. Personally I'd suggest some classic viewing.

@MrRazza @no_tweeter @Polyphase I don't think so, it can be very antagonistic to be so antagonistic about something many clearly love.
It also touches on the note of respect to the content creators.

@ahunter8056 @no_tweeter I thought it played out like fan fiction, infact as a child I did write some fanfiction with Daleks vs Cybermen. I mean it ended with a giant vacuum cleaner resolution.

@WiblyWoblyTimyWimyMOFFAT Actually I couldn't imagine what else could possibly win it, it was a fan favourite, and satisfying resolution to an arc and led into the 50th. Couldn't see it not winning, and I do love it. That said I *think* I voted for the Big Bang, I was torn between the two.
Author lets his prejudice really show here. A Moffat episode wins "I'm really surprised to see this one here" x3

@ahunter8056 I agree with the OP, series 2 was pretty dire, apart from The Girl in the Fireplace and School Reunion there is little to speak highly of.
That was a bizarre outcome, over than Love and Monsters and Fear Her.....seriously expected series 3 finale to be voted the worst, it was so horribly cheesy.
Crikey... they were all a bit rubbish IMHO. That said Waters of Mars was ok until the ending... not sure what to pick. Christmas Invasion as it introduced Tennant?

@Polyphase @GaryKingston The Doctor who gave the show a new lease of life by playing the childlike hobo would find it a bit childish? I would say he'd be proud to say the current itteration, the Smith era is a mesh between Hinchcliffe era writing and Patrick Troughtons wonderful performace of childlike wonder and physical acting.

@mgm1229 But can we forget it come into the world with Rose? It shouldn't win by default, it's either a good episode or a bad, and it's not even one of the strongest of season 1.

@Polyphase @JLS1138 Yup, placing Bad Wolf everywhere, with no tangible meaning was a far better idea 8-) The cracks were the best arc in the shows 50 year history, each time teasing out a bit more information about what they were, connecting the universe, undoing time, until finally a piece of TARDIS was removed - they were fantastic exactly BECAUSE they weren't just spot the reference, the idea that the TARDIS caused a tear in the universe came to every viewer at a different point of progression through the series. They were ongoing and expanding clues to the audience.
@Polyphase @DaireConstantineOReilly Wow, my the Girl Who Waited is my favourite episode of all time, and the God Complex is pretty high up there. To each their own bizarre view on the universe I suppose.
