Also, glad to see my vitriol towards series 2 is reflected in the trends here. I feel vindicated.

So, is the titular Girl/Woman who Died/Lived going to be played by Maisie?

@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.

Judging by those titles, seems likely that there will be a thematic or narrative link between the two.

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.

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.

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 @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.

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.

@TardisBoy! Oh, yeah, the 10,000 BC story is a mess. But as a single episode, An Unearthly Child > Rose, in my opinion.

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.

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!

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.

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.
