Quite a few tracks have popped on Youtube (new, clean versions from the actual soundtrack). It's great to finally hear clean versions.

@ilyootha @Planet of the Deaf This needs a sequel with the later scene where Barbara runs over the lot of them.

I love Hurt. I really do. I'm quite tempted to vote for him just to give him more equal footing. But I can't. I just can't go against Eleven.

@Disolus I think a cardinal rule of Doctor Who should be not to go there. Some things are best left unexplained. There's a good reason Lungbarrow never made it to our screens.

@TheCyberDoctor @ahunter8056 Clank-a-clank version of the middle 8? That will be interesting.

@TardisKid101 Why would the series have to finish? This show can potentially go forever.

@andyot7777 I dunno, I think that would raise an awful lot of problems. They'd have to introduce all sorts of continuity elements, such as whatever companion they're using, and completely restructure the plot away from the 4-part system.

Yet again, I just don't see the point. What is there to get out of a movie (other than more money for Hollywood, of course)?

@Polyphase She's no more over the top insane than Ainley (or even Delgado at times), and she feels plenty evil to me.

I misread 'hobby' as 'hubby'. Shows how I read their relationship...

@Doctavarium That was actually originally a Seventh Doctor line. Moffat used it in his first ever Doctor Who work, Continuity Errors.

In that case, let's give Capaldi a well-deserved 12/10.

Since we were sticking Twelve in Ten's stories earlier,  imagine the opposite. Say, for example, Tennant saying that the Moon is an egg.

I'm just giggling at the thought of Capaldi delivering "Oo, he's slim, and a little bit foxy. You've thought so too. I've been inside your head. You've been looking. You like it."

Random thought: imagine in Nine had regenerated into Capaldi rather than Tennant? I reckon that Rose relationship would have panned out a little differently...

@ilyootha @Malohkeh The Toymaker is a caricature of Chinese people, played in yellowface and dressed in Mandarin clothing. Even the name 'celestial' is a racial slur. I recommend Phil Sandifer's essay on the serial.

@whisperman1 @Malohkeh The Sontarans were only brought back for that to recycle the costume and save costs, though, and it only makes up about 25 minutes of time with Sontarans present (due to the cliffhanger for the first part being saved for the monster reveal). Sure, those 25 minutes are very nasty and brutal, but in the grand scheme of Sontaran appearances, that story forms only a small proportion of screen time for that species and is rather atypical when compared to the rest of their appearances. It's less an example and more an outlier.

The toymaker was played in yellowface for God's sake! He's a shameful bit of history, and not one that should be revived in the present day.

I feel like it's just plain embarrassing to revive a horrifically racist element of the show's past, no matter how much the racism is bleached away. I'm all for a story based on deadly games, but not the Celestial Toymaker.

(Also, I don't think they were that special a character.)
