I guess I am really in the minority here. I loved it.

Easy. Time Heist.

I'm a hard core Whovian and I actually agree with Time Heist topping Listen. I feel like Listen tried a bit too hard to be the episode of the year. I could feel Moffat trying. Not a quality I look for in my episodes.

One of my favorite aspects of the show is to speculate future companions. The Doctor can only change so much. The companion is always a mystery. Excellent.

Great article. Well written. Couldn't disagree more, however. I think the inclusion of Robin Hood was BRILLIANT. It also allowed for SO much character development in both the Doctor and Clara. To each their own

I have a feeling I will be an outlier in this, but I thought it was PHENOMENAL. Not just good. GREAT. Thoroughly enjoyed this weeks episode. 9/10.

This is a bit unfair. Dalek is one of the greatest episodes of the modern series. It doesn't mean Into The Dalek wasn't good.

I LOVED it. Renewed my faith in the possibility of good Dalek stories. Not perfect, but 9/10.

@MrRazza, General Rogue Timelord Identifier I was not against the darker Doctor, but I did find it to be less dark than I expected. There were some moments that were very dark, but he was also EXTREMELY funny. He also had a lot of redeeming moments to his darkness, like saving Clara after leaving here.

Besides the questionable direction, I really did enjoy it. Capaldi is fantastic and gives me no doubt that I will enjoy his take on the character. Not perfect, but it has me very excited about the rest of the series. Not thrilled with Ben Wheatley's directing. Some very amateur shots.
@Scootersfood @angelusnathan I thought that was a cheesy call back to be honest. I kinda rolled my eyes at that part. I did enjoy the episode as a whole though.
What haunts the Doctor? A lot. But I bet not being able to save Davros is up there. Could be him.

You may be onto something! Titles are very else thought out. That can't just be a coincidence.

I leave for college here in the states the day before Deep Breath premieres. This will be a special series. It'll help me cope.
Fair point though.
I'm talking strictly NuWho. I have watched quite a lot of classic who, but not enough to claim something like that.
I'm glad the BBC said that. I'd like an exit to be a surprise for once. When we know which episode a companion is leaving, we just watch and wonder, "is she going to die or just leave?" That takes out the surprise.
1 month, 1 week ago on Jenna Coleman Leaving at Christmas?
Death in Heaven might be the best finale title ever. SO excited. Also, can't wait for Listen. Maybe it's ridiculous, but I love all episodes with one word titles. They're almost always behind the couch scary. (Dalek, Midnight, Utopia, Blink, Hide). Only one I haven't been fond of was Gridlock.
It must be said... That's not the most flattering picture of Capaldi they could have used.

Are you even reading my response? I'm not arguing that Capaldi isn't 13. You're making yourself look rather clueless
1 month, 1 week ago on Is Doctor Who History Repeating Itself?
Why would you call Capaldi 13 but still call Matt 11 and call David 10? That makes zero sense.
@NewWho2012 @Arkleseizure That is correct. They wouldn't let him leave, because no one was coming out of the woodwork to take the job due to the low ratings, and JNT didn't want the show cancelled.
@treker68 Do you mean 12? Or are you saying 13 because of War? In which case 10 would be 11 and 11 would be 12.
Sorry to bother, but I figured I would check in about my article "The Day of the Doctor: A Different Perspective" since it's been about two months now. I won't be offended if you changed your mind and decided not to post it, I'd just like to know. I know that once Series 8 gets here it'll have even less of a chance of getting published since there is so much else to cover.

I commented on this a while back! It's really remarkably similar. Not to mention, both Colin and Capaldi were in previous episodes as different characters before returning to the role, AND they both share a name (first or last) with a previous Doctor, being the only two to have done so. Spooky. But Capaldi's costume ROCKS!
I don't think some of the people preaching positivity quite understand where people are coming from when they say they disagree with the series. His writing is superb. The analysis he offers is always a joy to read. His positivity is to be admired. But the point of rating things is to see how it compares to other things of similar nature (in this case other episodes of who). That's why it's a little silly to rate everything 10/10 in my opinion. Why include the ratings at all? Why not just make it an article detailing his thoughts sans the ratings? It makes the rating system pointless. It adds no insight into the quality of the episode because there is no differentiation. Looking at his ratings alone, you can't tell which episodes he would call the best and which he would say were lacking in certain areas. If I were to give any advice to the series, I wouldn't say tone down the positivity, I would suggest to simply omit the ratings. Please just try to understand where people are coming from before you bash them being negative, and tell them to stop watching the show.

Actually I would disagree. I was very intrigued by the silence arc the whole time. The idea of silence falling was genius. I just felt the pacing was very far off and the story tried to do too much.
Also, it blows my mind how absolutely polarizing Time of the Doctor seems to be. People either see it as a perfect episode or a disgrace to Matt's era. There doesn't seem to be much middle ground. The idea of the fan base being split on something is a common one in Who, but I don't think I've ever seen it so obvious than I have for this episode. How strange.
Technically, Richard E Grant wasn't the Great Intelligence, Sir Ian McKellen was and he just took over Richard E Grant's body. But I'll let it slide ;) I agree up until Time. I was very disappointed by that episode. Better on rewatch, I'll admit. But if it's not enjoyable the first time it's a seriously flawed episode.
A long time ago, but as 11 said "I never forget a face"

@CharlieFulcher Could be! Moffat may have been thinking this the whole time. I'd love that.
Very intriguing! Can't wait to find out. So much to look forward to!
His costume was a bit jarring, but I have never minded him. Not my least favorite Doctor. Not by a longshot.

The comments on this post make me ashamed to be a member of this site. Let people not like the line, it's their opinion! Stop talking about how pathetic they are. Stop saying they don't deserve to watch Doctor Who. You're embarrassing this entire site with your self perceived vigilante justice.
@BraydenAnsell Just know that when they inevitably turn on you, others agree with you and they are in the wrong for not letting you voice your opinion.
Anyone know what's up with Capaldi's shirt in the Leela picture? It looks like he's wearing the jacket from his costume, so that must be a costume piece as well.

Does anyone have any background for the portrait given to Jenna and Peter? Who did it and why is it significant?
I was scared to click it because I thought it may contain spoilers! Needless to say I was relieved it didn't.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Deep Breath Screenings & Spoilers: Pros & Cons
Very hard call to make. This is a very blurred lines situation. After all, they're not REALLY watching it early. They're watching it at the premiere. Everyone else is just watching it late
To be fair, the work load of being in the Leftovers, and a minor character in a few Hollywood movies isn't even close to the beast that is being the Doctor on Doctor Who. I agree that he didn't "look before he leaped", but I don't doubt his health troubles.

Too bad they already used Scrooge. I could see 12 doing a GREAT Scrooge, and Clara convincing him why Christmas is so wonderful
1 month, 2 weeks ago on 2014’s Christmas Special Director
Why is everyone already saying he should never leave? Sure, it's good to have faith in him and all, but we don't even know if he's any good yet. I believe he will be, but good enough to be the longest running Doctor based off three 15 second teasers, a minute and a half trailer, and (if you're lucky) one episode? Let's wait it out first.
@helenagardner9 @Petyr Cupalldy No need to go defensive on him. He is just saying he thinks Benedict would be a good doctor. It's hard to disagree. A man can daydream, can't he?

There's a controversial scene in the episode "The Brain of Morbius" that shows all of the doctor's past incarnations, including some coming BEFORE William Hartnell's first doctor. The show has since ignored this scene, as the 12 regeneration limit was invented a few episodes later.

I think this is a great idea. Especially if they release mini episodes during the months between seasons. Although that might detract from any cliff hangers they might have left
