This latest group of polls is making me realise just how spoiled we have been over the past 10 Christmases!

@Only as old Whovian as you feel - Hello Rusty  48 years old here - love Missy, not sure about a female Doctor, though I could be persuaded. I warmed to Clara taking on the mantle.   I actually think what they'll do with the Doctor to make a contrast next is to stick with a male Doctor, but played by a black actor.  It just seems the next logical contrast.

@kidneys Ive got kidneys  Hey - 44 years, another oldie like me, that's round about when I started! I agree - Delgado has to get it, but Gomez is fantastic too.

@NotsoSmartguy  @Yeah,TopLayer,IfYouWantToSayAFewWords @supermoff, chief of the statistics police  I still remember the newspaper headlines halfway through Christopher Eccleston's series, going on about how the ratings were plummeting.  It is an obsession with some people!

Now - I've never said a negative word about the show on this forum, I am generally a "glass half full" kind of person, who likes sharing in the joy of the wonderful show we all enjoy so much and wonders why the nit-pickers who keep threatening to watch something else don't actually go and do precisely that, and let the rest of us all live in a cosy world of general loveliness and niceness.



So, deep breath: here goes.  Something negative. I HATE THE SPEECH!!!

@Spadesey  Oh Clara will of course be back - she has to end up living happily ever after with Danny, and only Father Christmas can sort that out now.  I am just wondering if the Doctor will be wanting Gallifrey back for Christmas.

@ElyotWren @The Unseen Potato  Because in Amy's choice you didn't know what was real and what was a dream, and with this you don't know what is real and what is a dream.  Seems quite similar to me  - unless I've forgotten what happened in Amy's choice, which is always possible!  :)

@hp139  But these aren't the same Cybermen we saw in Nightmare in Silver - so we don't know they can upgrade all the time.  These are a new Cyberman race created by Missy.  At least, that's my take on it - "Cybermen from Cyberspace - why did nobody ever think of that"

@_divya12_  Not really.  The BBC will control what they let out to whet the appetite, but not to spoil any major events.  It will be based upon a measured judgement, and I am sure sometimes their judgement may differ from others, but personally I see no issue here.

@Notsosmartguy Approves of female Master @TomGallagher  I kind of disagree (in a nice way).    There was no intent to kill a child, and the storyline reflected his horror at having done so.  All seems OK to me.

A female master has ruined the show I love!


Then again - for some, Susan Foreman leaving ruined the show, because the original team was broken up.

Then they actually changed the lead actor - that really ruined the show!

Next - they invented a race called "The Time Lords".  That ruined it for me.

Whoever came up with the stupid idea of exiling him on the planet earth. Ruined it!

They ruined the Master in the Deadly Assassin by making him a decaying old mutant.

Next - some young guy took the role.  That one put me off for life - RUINED IT!

That coat.   I'm stopping watching.

Cheap budgets for the 7th Doctor.  Ruined it!

Oh no - they've Americanised it - and worse still, he KISSED.  That's ruined it for me

etc. etc. etc.


Change happens.  Every time it "ruins" it for someone.    Personally, after over 40 years of watching the show - I still love it, and appreciate that change just keeps the show alive!

@BollingerKnickers @Admin short for Administrator!  @The_Horrors_Crimson  It is risky - but isn't it less of a risk than a female Doctor would have been?  Making the Master female is a clever way of seeing how people react to a change in gender. For me - a lifelong fan,  I think it works - she is suitably insane and evil, just like the Master should be.

@Antee991166 @Tomb of the Cyberbob  Oh - I don't know.  Something about the execution reminded me of the good old innocent days of William Hartnell - or maybe I am even getting mixed up with Peter Cushing in the early Dalek movies? Sometimes I tire of the Doctor knowing everything - I love seeing him utterly baffled
