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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 don't recall ANYONE demanding an explaination for Capaldi's past appearances until after Moffat said he would address it. Of course we want to know now that Moffat had teased it. You can't blame the fandom for that.

Yes, but all new who seasons have some incredible episodes. Even series 2 (my least favorite) has The Girl in the Fireplace, School Reunion and The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit. But that doesn't change the fact that it also had Love and Monsters AND Fear Her. Series 6 has it's bad parts too, just like series 2.
