Lovely era, though I'm still rather irritated with how they handled the end of Liz.

Thank you for reminding me of all the hard choices I've made over the past couple weeks.

@Planet of the Deaf @SonicTheHedgehogRules I related to Amy more than Rory myself, but I love them both, and Rory was indeed a great character.
@Sontaran17 I'm leaning towards Pennelle Capolemez.

@Wonky Apples River Song is Moffat's baby. If any character deserves this list, it's surely her?
@TardisBoy! I liked him. He was a sympathetic portrayal of a soldier, and a lovely change from the over-the-top patriotism that often is used instead (*glares at a certain Academy Award Nominee*).
I think the Eighth Doctor deserves an honorable mention. Moffat gave him a positively stunning minisode!
I feel bad for not voting Capaldi, but Gomez blew me away.

@HeyProfessor Well, War's emotional journey, from the grumpy old man who was ready to destroy it all to a joyful old man filled with hope, formed the core of the episode. I can't see 8 ever being in the place War was at the beginning, ready to end it all and then die.

@SirTrey @Malohkeh, not a member of any acronyms @twoheartsonemind (Six Seasons and a Movie) Wedding is somewhat flawed (mostly in the all-of-history-at-once aspect), but I don't see why it gets so much hate. As I see it, it's about two women, River and Amy, who have lived their lives in the shadow of the Doctor and been manipulated and used by enemies all season, reclaiming their agency, the crowning moments of which being Amy's killing of Kovarian and River's decision not to shoot the Doctor.

Really, the only section of this era I don't adore is 7b. I feel like the writers weren't all able to adjust to the stylistic direction, and the blockbuster format of 7a carried over and clashed a bit with the attempted subtle trope subversion and character work with the Doctor and Clara in 7b. Some stories, like Hide, Akhaten, and Name really made it work, but others, like Nightmare and Journey, suffered from a crisis of identity.

@twoheartsonemind (Six Seasons and a Movie) @Malohkeh, not a member of any acronyms I'm very fond of Doctor Who taking risks! The show thrives on change, and change is a product of risk!
For me, it's always been series 6. It defied every expectation the previous five seasons had given us, shifting the shape of the narrative, the formatting of the series (a two-part opener, one-part finale, split, heavy arc) and created something entirely new. It was bold, it was experimental, and it was extremely exciting, with new, stunning reveals and some brilliant stand-alone episodes. I've never been more excited for the next episode than I was in those wonderful weeks of 2011.
@SamanthaBH I think that's probably the weakest of the many spinoff options available at the moment.

@Supermoff, member of CATS @The Watchful Guardian 12 could be their baby sitter.
@The Watchful Guardian @Gustaff @Antee991166 Also, Eight apparently lost count and restarted.
@The Watchful Guardian @Malohkeh, not a member of any acronyms @Gustaff @Antee991166 I think he did that too, yeah.
@The Watchful Guardian @Malohkeh, not a member of any acronyms @Gustaff @Antee991166 I believe Troughton also claimed to be thousands of years old, so that seems unlikely.
@Gustaff @The Watchful Guardian @Antee991166 The Doctor's age has been inconsistent for ages. Pertwee was in the thousands, and Baker was in the hundreds.
@The Watchful Guardian @Malohkeh, not a member of any acronyms Ah, yes, so he was.

Unless he pulls a McGann, he'll probably look a bit older by then.
A brilliant actor and a brilliant Doctor. I want fifty War Doctor box sets from Big Finish ASAP.
Oh, lovely. Blink had some brilliant stylistic flourishes, verging on the arty at times. I look forward to seeing what she does this time!

Nice to see a very diverse range of choices here in the comments. I guess it goes to show that series 8 had something for everyone!

Easily Listen for me. There were many other wonderful episodes, but none of the others pushed boundaries and went into new territory half as much. I love experimental Doctor Who, particularly when it comes out so well!
Death in Heaven for being cheeky as hell.

@Switcharoo Dailymotion is salvation for the broke Whovian.
@Aztecs, Daleks and Cavemen @Malohkeh @TardisBoy! Ah, yeah, animated recons are life savers. If only they'd do them for such lost classics as Marco Polo *sighs wistfully*
@Aztecs, Daleks and Cavemen @TardisBoy! I assume you say "seen" in a loose sense, seeing as there's missing episodes. :P
@Antee991166 @TheBiPunishment I preferred when they used foam. At least that was more fun.
5 days, 5 hours ago on On Thin Ice: The Future of the Ice Warriors
@Antee991166 @ Notsosmartguy Ice Time, yeah. It was going to be Ace's departure story. I believe Big Finish adapted it.
@Supermoff @ Notsosmartguy Sontarans already have the Rutan war. I'd rather finally see some of that.
Honestly, I don't much care for the Ice Warriors. They just feel like generic (if well designed) alien baddies to me.

I think the best possible film would be an adaptation of Engines of War. You'd even get the star power of John Hurt!

@Oodkind Well, the early incidents have already been told, namely Genesis the Daleks and The Apocalypse Element, but it'd be nice to see how it escalated.
@JamesConnolly Some things should never be explored, IMO.
6 days, 10 hours ago on Russell T Davies Interested in Writing A Doctor Who Movie
@Huknar @Malohkeh There's some great images to see, but how would they explain all the information for new viewers? A film needs to be able to stand alone, and it would need to explain the Matrix, the Forge, Charley Pollard and her relationship with anti-time, Rassilon, the Great Vampires, anti-time itself, and a fair bit more.
@Huknar @Malohkeh How about something with Six? Say, Jubilee?
@Huknar @Malohkeh I can't take the Nimon seriously...and I didn't much care for Embrace the Darkness (and I think it's a story that is more audio based).
@Huknar @Malohkeh Though I suppose Chimes isn't very cinematic. A condensed Dark Eyes, maybe?
