What's wrong with being drunk? Ask that to the glass of water.
Also, glad to see my vitriol towards series 2 is reflected in the trends here. I feel vindicated.

That was an absolutely fascinating read. Great work!

@Mr Meglos @luckemasse And he's being "scary".
11 hours, 18 minutes ago on Series 9: The Girl Who Died, and The Woman Who Lived
@TardisBoy is excited for Maisie Williams! That just seems wrong somehow.
11 hours, 48 minutes ago on Series 9: The Girl Who Died, and The Woman Who Lived
So, is the titular Girl/Woman who Died/Lived going to be played by Maisie?
11 hours, 51 minutes ago on Series 9: The Girl Who Died, and The Woman Who Lived
@TardisBoy is excited for Maisie Williams! "And sometimes something that looks like it’s going to be a single, isn’t a single." So, sounds like he's aiming to keep us on our toes.
11 hours, 52 minutes ago on Series 9: The Girl Who Died, and The Woman Who Lived
Judging by those titles, seems likely that there will be a thematic or narrative link between the two.

@Blanchard @Malohkeh will sell soul for Big Finish CDs Stick him with the pointy end!

"The right sort of hell" sounds like exactly what's needed.
12 hours, 17 minutes ago on Series 9: The Girl Who Died, and The Woman Who Lived
Moffat+Mathieson? Well, that's going to wind up a classic.
12 hours, 33 minutes ago on Series 9: The Girl Who Died, and The Woman Who Lived
Glad to see Series 6 is the most divisive. It's experimental and formula breaking, and I'd be surprised if everyone loved it as much as I do.

The Troughton era really set the template for such greats as Tom Baker and Matt Smith. Without Troughton, the show as we know it never would have come about.

Journey's End above A Christmas Carol? Excuse me while I flip a table.

I think Love and Monsters was a good idea, but it dropped everything in a truly dire third act. I see Torchwood's Random Shoes as a retooling of the same story and actually making it work wonderfully.

I see Dalek and The Doctor Dances as being the ones to truly define Nine's character. The hardened, hurt fighter who really just wants to save everyone. A great Doctor, and it's a pity he didn't stay longer.

@tbuktwo I misread that as "McEccleston" an "McCapaldi" and was wondering if those were new McDonald's products or something.

@TheOncomingHurricane @Malohkeh will sell soul for Big Finish CDs @JoelNewton I've been caught! :P
I think the fact that six of Moffat's scripts as a showrunner made it here disproves the idea that Moffat was only good under RTD.
@TheOncomingHurricane @JoelNewton Ooh, I'd better give that a read. I love The Beast Below (and Phil Sandifer's analysis of most things).
@Mr. Eyebrows Wow, here it is.
How long until someone starts complaining that Day only won because it was the 50th anniversary special?
@TheOncomingHurricane @Malohkeh will sell soul for Big Finish CDs That apparently the story is seen as roughly as good as TEH, but the second part is seen as slightly worse and the first slightly better. Or something.
@Mark McCullough And where the hell is Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS? Clearly top 10 material there.
Interesting that The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances scored both 0.01 higher and lower than The Eleventh Hour.
Wow, Moffat completely dominated the top 5. I suppose that goes to show how well received his writing still is.
@TardisBoy! The thing for me is that An Unearthly Child just feels rather timeless, while Rose feels very much directed towards a particular era.
4 days, 9 hours ago on Why I Love Rose
@TardisBoy! Oh, yeah, the 10,000 BC story is a mess. But as a single episode, An Unearthly Child > Rose, in my opinion.
@Edoe *begins flame barrage*
Rose was the perfect way to revive a classic show for a new generation, chock full of modernization and mass appeal while still playing to the show's past. It may not be my favorite, but it was exactly what was needed.

Blimey, those were simpler times.

Ah, my Doctor. Well, one of them, anyway. Pat was a joyful presence who made everything watchable. His Doctor really redefined the role into more of what we know today. I'm proud to say I've watched his whole era, and loved every second of it! Miss you, Pat!

Good choices! Look forward to seeing what comes out on top!
In unrelated Who News, on the Lego Club website, they've released a short teaser video for Lego Doctor Who!

This is easier than yesterday's. Thank heavens for small mercies.
I think The Doctor, the Widow, and the Wardrobe's opening sequence is worth a mention, too. An exciting few minutes highlighting the Doctor's post series 6 development and providing a lovely contrast to the quieter story that follows.

@supermoff @SirTrey is Backing The Eleventh Hour Any second now, you're going to stop that arguement. Both of you, together. Then you're going to negotiate the most perfect treaty of all time. Safeguards all round, completely fair on both sides. And the key to perfect negotiation? Not knowing what side you're on.So, for the next few hours, until I decide to let you out, no one in this comments section will be able to remember if they're Supermoff or SirTrey.
@Ivegotkidneys @Malohkeh will sell soul for Big Finish CDs "My Dad's A Cyberman"
Unrelated breaking news: Moffat's written another fanfic in the DWM production notes.
@Alleigh member of P.O.N.D.S The Doctor breaking down and trying to change history was predictable? Blimey, your precognitive skills are enviable.
I'm gonna vote for The Waters of Nature and The Eleventh Astronaut.
@DaftDalek is excited for Blade Runner 2 But...The Eleventh Hour is brilliant, too!
*curls up in a corner, crying*
I take it The Day of the Doctor is in a future semi-final?
@Mr Meglos @Malohkeh will sell soul for Big Finish CDs I feel the same way about Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead not making it this far.
Kudos to Moffat for having written 50% of the episodes to make it into this semi-final.
