One of my favorite episodes. Great Christmas atmosphere and well used concept of dreaming. Deffinitely deserves even higher rating.

DW shouldn't be too serious!! And I see nothing wrong with fairytale elements. It is the best part. It is certainly not a comedy, just an immaginative relaxing Christmassy story - exactly what it should be!

Excellent story. I really like episodes about dreaming. Also, Christmas atmosphere was great, especially the part with sleigh.10/10

Voted The Time of the Doctor which was excellent finale of brilliant era.

Christmas Carol is ok, it had very good Christmas atmosphere, but ending was too sad for a Christmas story.

Time is a good episode but Snowmen is one of my favorites. So, voted for the Snowmen.

Doctor Who shouldn't promote anything related to politics. It should stay away from political issues! All fans and viewers should enjoy watching Doctor Who, whether they are conservative, liberal or socialist. Promoting any political stance in the show means unnecessary division of the fandom.

@91 Queen of Evil I am probably the biggest opponent of the idea of gender change and my answer on your question is yes and no. Let me explain. 


I oppose the idea for 2 reasons. First one is that regeneration is change in physical appearance, but gender is much more than physical appearance, it is very important part of someone's identity. 

Second reason is that Doctor regenerated into a man for 13 times. Master even more (before Gomez). River regenerated into a woman twice etc. So we could say it is an established rule that timelords can't change gender. And I don't think it is a good idea to change established rules after 50 years.


So, if they give us a good reason for changing gender, I would still strongly oppose it BUT it would be much much better than that the only explanation was: "it could always happen, just didn't". Giving reasons would be some sort of recognition that gender is an important part of Doctor's identity and that it can only be changed if you have a good reason. Also, it would explain why Doctor regenerated 13 times into man and than suddently into woman.

I am also afraid that this is a test for a female Doctor. But if the Doctor regenerates into a woman I will deffinitely switch off. I like female heroines and enemies but gender is a part of the identity and if you change the identity he is not the same person anymore.

Well, Matt Smith IS my favourite Doctor so far, but it wasn't the reason.

RTD finales were just too action oriented and megalomanical. Two alien invasions per year just didn't work for me. Also, there weren't any misteries or resolutions. Just fighting, saving the world and deux ex macchina. Series 1 finale was better but still average IMO

As for Dark Water, this gender change didn't work for me and I just can't see Missy and the Master as the same person. Also, the plot itself wasn't as good as previous seasons' finales were.

But, as I said, series 5 and 7 finales were brilliant.

Well, i wouldn't mind, but I don't see the point in changing TARDIS every season and a half. Eccleston and Tennant had the same TARDIS for 4 seasons + specials. And I think it is as it should be.

Well, from in-character POV you might be right. But dw is a tv show that is watched by humans, so it should also follow human understanding of some basic values. I know, it is a sci fi show, but changing sex is still much bigger step than changing face.

Also, even if it is a social construct, it doesn't mean that it is a bad thing that must be rejected.

I don't like the idea that time lords can change sex. Regeneration is change of physical appearance. But sex is not just physical appearance. It is also part of identity. I really hope that she is lying. Otherwise it would be very nihilist view on gender/sex.

And I am not sexist. I like female enemies. I would also be angry if River regenerates into male. I just dislike the idea that regeneration can change sex because it is not the same character anymore. You changed his identity.

It is sooo nice too see how people appreciate Listen and Mummy - my favorite episodes in this season. I am so hapy to see them on the top of the list. Although I think Into the Dalek is overrated. It is not bad but definitely the least good episode in this brilliant season.

I hate this 'go foward' arguments. DW is one show that lasts 50 years and that's why there must be reference to past and future every now and then. It is not easy to keep continuity for 50 years but they should at least try to do so by making references on old companions and resolving old (maybe forgotten) problems. Or making references on future events. That's the only way to keep continuity in such long show. Saying 'show must keep moving / go foward ' sounds like surrender.

Most of DW episodes are good. So when I am under the impression I rate them higher. Later (after 1-2 weeks) I can compare them with other episodes and rate them more realistically. Best examples are Christmas Carol and JTTCOT. After I watched them I rated them very high, but now I think they are at most average.

So true. I don't think it is a good idea to rate episodes immediately after watching because you are still under impression and it is still too fresh. It would be good idea to rate them after 2-3 weeks. These results would be much more realistic.

Although, Listen is soooo brilliant and I don't think I'll change my mind :).

It is nice to see that most people liked Listen. Brilliant episode. 10/10 is too low rating for such episode.

But I can't understand how is Into the Dalek better than Robot of Sherwood?
