Bio not provided
@Notsosmartguy approves of female thor @supermoff I love a good dark story, or my interpretation of dark. I find my favourite DW stories have been dark, WOM, HN/FOB, Midnight etc. Fun is good too, I love The Unicorn And The Wasp, it's genius, and I realise I'm probably the only one, but I love New Earth as well. But I think it's time we had a change of tone (ie to darker) that was more consistant, but only for a series or two.

@supermoff @LGwalchmai95 That anti-grav bike never turned up again though did it? Shame, it would be really handy for getting up high things when they couldn't think of anything else. A little like the gun in The Empty Child that punches a hole in the wall and then replaces it. At least when it showed up again (in another Moffat episode) it couldn't fix the wall.

@BobbieBob Plus I'm a self-confessed fangirl and I can't wait for series 8.
@Notsosmartguy approves of female thor @supermoff Tennant wrote an essay when he was 13 about how much he wanted to play the Doctor.
Lovin' that Master.

@supermoff He is, but I preferred the dude from the "Uncanny Matt Smith Impression!" video, a couple of W&Ws ago.
It's funny, my favourite episode of 7b is easily Nightmare In Silver. I recognise that it's ridiculous, Angie and Artie are annoying and I definitely prefer the Cybusmen look, but I just find it a really enjoyable episode. I love the Cyberplanner scenes, and the stuff with Warwick Davis is quite clever. I don't think much of the others in this half of the series, except maybe Journey To The Center Of The Tardis and The Bells Of Saint John. Good article though.

@supermoff @MaraBackman @The Outer Space K9 I loved Eccleston, but people always think of him as the "darker" Doctor of the modern era, and while he maybe is compared to Tennant and Smith, he still had a light side, had a laugh and had a good sense of humour and an enthusiasm. Remember in The End Of The World where Tainted Love comes on and he starts dancing? And the way he says "fantastic", his face just lights up! I think he was the perfect mix of dark/angry but also light/funny.

@Whovian1500 Have you ever seen a soap?
"We still blow a lot of s*** up." How cool is Peter Capaldi?! And he doesn't even have a bow tie. Dayum, he knows what a fan wants to hear. This fan anyway.

I don't have an inherent problem with the flirting thing, like I didn't mind it when Jack, Rose, River etc did it, but I'm glad that there won't be any of that for a bit. I don't mind it, just want a break.
@Mary Sue's Vertue @TheOncomingStorm @Notsosmartguy approves of female thor @supermoff @The Outer Space K9 Thank you, very well said!

@Luna23 @supermoff @cyberbrayde It's viscousness in general! It happens in every fandom, and is not just directed at Matt Smith. RTD gets a lot of really unnecessary hate. It's not that hate I have a problem with, it's the way it manifests itself, but it's not just aimed at matt by any means!

@supermoff @JolomontheCube Actually, I think there is, but that's just my opinion, just like John is entitled to his. I happen to disagree with them.
2 days, 2 hours ago on New Who: The Story Thus Far – Series 7 (Part 1)
Wow, 76/80, that's very positive! Good article, glad you enjoyed them so much, but I have to disagree... TDTWATW - ok, so admittedly I can't remember that very well. AOTD - 5/10, enjoyable but riddled with holes, not scary and I wanted more classic Daleks. DOAS - 4/5. Not much I can say really. ATCM - 9/10, hooray for Toby Whithouse! Toby for showrunner! TPOT - 7/10, yeah the ending was a let down but the first two thirds is really enjoyable TV. TATM - 8/10, pretty cool. TS - can't remember that either.
@TardisBoy Well clearly we don't, but it would be nice if we did.
@SephoraNeedSeries8 "Toby Whithouse is the most underrated Doctor Who writer in history." I thought that, but I'm beginning to think he isn't. he came up in another discussion a couple of articles ago for some reason, and it turns out a lot of people relly like him, me included.
@cyberbrayde People can be just as vicious of the RTD era, believe me.
@Chris502 You'd hope so wouldn't you!

@Chris502 @supermoff He might be.
@YaelMoise @TheOncomingStorm @MeglosProductions 10 was vain, it's practically a fact. But that was a part of his personality, we all know the Doctor regenerates with a different personality. For one Doctor regeneration may feel like change and for another it may feel like dying. While he's the same physical being, with the same memories, he is, in a way, a different person. Different look, and, most importantly, different personality entirely. I wouldn't like that, even if I retained my memories. And maybe 10 kicked up a fuss about it because, well, he liked himself as he was. I don't know. If you don't like, nothing I say will change that, but that's the way I see it.

@MeglosProductions "and true to the character of the doctor than Tennant's pathetic, character butchering "I don't want to go" line." When 10 was regenerating he thought he was regenerating into his final incarnation. He thought it was his last regeneration, it makes sense that he wouldn't want to change because it signifies that he's dying - and dying for good. As far as he was concerned, after changing into 11, that would be it.
@Notsosmartguy approves of female thor @TheOncomingStorm @supermoff @The Outer Space K9 But he was never going to die on Trenzalore. We always know that he's never going to die, until maybe the show ends, and even then he might not. The fun is in getting to the point where he's under threat IMO, not escaping that threat because he's always going to do that. In the context of a regeneration, 10 would've been aware that he was regenerating into his final incarnation (as far as he knew), so it kind of makes sense that he wouldn't want to go for as long as possible. No one wants to die, and regenerating isn't dying, but he thought it was his last regeneration, so...
@Notsosmartguy approves of female thor @TheOncomingStorm @supermoff @The Outer Space K9 Nah, we're all entitled to our own opinion. I don't dislike 11 at all, and I really like 9, but 10 is my favourite, and I guess I was trying to explain why... I think has last line was a little out of character, but bearing in mind he was regenerating by himself, he didn't have companions there, like every other Doctor except 8 and War.
@Notsosmartguy approves of female thor @supermoff @The Outer Space K9 Why can;t he be human? So he's a 900 year old Timelord, but he regenerates with a different personality each time. And 10 was "the one who regrets", he surrounded himself with humans as a distraction, in a way, it felt right for me that he would be more human. That's partly why I liked him.
@supermoff @Notsosmartguy approves of female thor @The Outer Space K9 Everyone criticises 10's regen, but if you think about it, that was the only regeneration, excluding 8 into War and War into 9 where the Doctor hasn't had any companions with him, so it feels right that it should be negative. Especially considering that 10's era had a big focus on companions and characters and emotions over plot.
@Regenerated Catterson @TheOncomingStorm Not Hurt.
@supermoff @Notsosmartguy approves of female thor @Planet of the Deaf @TheCyberDoctor is Undead That whole thing with the Timelords was a bit ridiculous. Really? They needed his name? Couldn't they just come through an check that it was safe, then go back if it wasn't? In the end, they didn't even need the Doctor's name, just Clara ranting at them, then they gave him a whole new regeneration cycle, so they obviously believed that it was definitely the Doctor... then they just went away!
@The 11th Doctor @Whovian1500 That's half the fun!
Oh, and yes, I cried, but that's not saying much cos I cried the first time I watched every regeneration of the modern series to date...

Great article. Tennant is also my favourite Doctor, and I didn't really like The Time Of The Doctor on the whole but I did really like the regeneration scene. While Amy's cameo might've been a bit unnecessary IMO, I still think it worked. The score was great, and I personally never had a problem with the "snap transition". I agree though, I would've loved a little bit more of Capaldi.
@MeglosProductions @TheOncomingStorm @supermoff @JJ2000 Dinosaurs On A Spaceship wasn't as bad as Asylum based on plot holes and such, but even then, I still found Asylum more entertaining.

@supermoff @MeglosProductions @JJ2000 A Town Called Mercy was fantastic, Toby being amazing, as ever. Chibnall's were definitely the weakest IMO and the Angels weren't that great.
@supermoff @SephoraNeedSeries8 @robohappy @BobbieBob I don't dislike Strax, but I have more of an interest in Jenny and Vastra as a couple. By themselves, none of them would be as good. I guess that's why they're the Paternoster Gang, but Vastra ad Jenny are my favourites.

@Notsosmartguy approves of female thor @supermoff @TheOncomingStorm I hope so.
I'm in Spain!!! Fortunately I can record it and I'd much rather watch Doctor Who on TV. "And like the show-off he is, he can’t resist another go" Steven Moffat calling himself a showoff in other words.

What is it with people not liking clingy companions anyway? I can see how it could get annoying done to the extreme, but seriously, I think it's quite realistic. If you put yourself in their position, you wouldn't want to let the Doctor go off and do stuff without you. And if you had a crush on him, like pretty much every modern companion minus Donna (yes, including Clara), you'd probably be a bit jealous if someone else came along, or you'd be shocked to find out you were just the latest in a long line. And why can't they fall in love with him? He's still a person, it could happen.
