Well, I like a good RTD vs Moffat debate anyway...
Toby Whithouse. Nuff said.

I really didn't like Into The Dalek to be honest, which is a shame because I love The Waters Of Mars. But this just made so little sense on so many levels.
12 hours, 43 minutes ago on Into the Dalek Review
I gave it 7/10 and I think The Eleventh Hour was better, but I don't think the Doctor physically pushed the Half-Faced Man. But he definitely died because of the Doctor. I think the Doctor persuaded him to do it, like he got Gretchen to sacrifice herself. And they both ended up in Heaven, because of him...

I have to say, I thought it was really not great. At all.
3/10. I loved Capaldi, still, but the whole thing was ridiculous. They just happened to have a minaturiser on the ship? And seriously, what did they think was going to happen if they fixed a broken Dalek that was temporarily good? Why didn't they bottle the radiation that was poisoning it, recreate it and give it to all the other Daleks? How did he not realise it would turn bad again?!
Danny I liked, and the bit where the Doctor gave Ross the pill.
Also, Star Wars and Star Trek nods - always good! Like when they went into the bit where the dead bodies are stored, it just reminded me so much of the rubbish chute on the Death Star.

You know, I was really hoping they'd just forget about the woman in the shop. I don't want to constantly keep looking back. I know loads of people who will've totally forgotten she was mentioned. I want to move forwards!

Great article once again. I absolutely love Smith and Jones.

Great article. As most people know, I adore New Earth, and I thought after this article I'd end up defending it, but as it happens I agree with everything in the article. I think it is brilliant, massively underrated, very clever, very funny and with a great ending and interesting villain. My favourite series opener 10/10

I want to get into writing, and I love it. The cat nuns? Well why not? It's an alien planet. The kiss? Cassandra has been stuck in a metal frame unable to do anything for decades. And he's a good looking guy, I believe she'd kiss him. So go on, what are these endless plot holes?
@11th's Sonic Torchwood occasionally, but I don't think it needed one. (I think) most of the stories were strong enough by themselves anyway.

Good article. I don't see why everyone's making a big deal out of it. If you've read The Writer's Tale, you'd know that RTD co-wrote almost all of the eps in his era, he just didn't take a co-writer's credit.

That Capaldi poster at the top is amazing, and I like the Guardians trailer - basically just get all the coolest clips of Matt's era, some of the wittiest lines and put some awesome music over the top! (Great film, too!) And as ever, the impression is amazing.

@supermoff You know Tennant was a massive fan before he got the part, too?
Good article! I have faith in Capaldi, and, yes, even Moffat, though I think he should leave before too long...
Also, can't wait for Deep Breath, but I'm in Spain when it airs! (I think I've said this on several occasions in several different discussions but it doesn't make it any less annoying.) I do, however, get to watch two Doctor Whos in a row the day after I get back! Yay!

2 weeks, 3 days ago on New Who: The Story Thus Far – The Doctor Trilogy
Great article. And since the recent "Story Thus Far" article, I'm in a scoring mood...
Rose 9/10 (did exactly what it needed to. Love it.)
The Christmas Invasion 10/10 (just genius, imo.)
The Eleventh Hour 9.5/10 (my second favourite episode of the whole Matt era, to The Doctor's Wife.)
@supermoff Not giving everything 10/10 is not negativity.
@supermoff @wizardgang I have to say, the didn't really see the point in the Asylum. The Dalek Parliament said that they locked mad Daleks up in there because they didn't want to kill them (because they're beautiful) and then they send the Doctor in... so he can kill them.

He will. He will stay for series 9. Hey, I can hope.
Good article. Yeah, it doesn't need to be explained, but if they can get a good and brief story out of it, then I'm all for it. Especially as it's RTD's idea!

Nice article. I agree with everything you said in the "The arc, the whole arc, and nothing but the arc" section. Especially teasing with an arc, but not dominating, a bit of a return to the RTD era...? I hope so.
Nice one Billy, looking good. I have to say, I definitely think it's time for a theme change, glad they're going more electrical with it. My favourite titles have to be the 2005-2010 ones currently, but we'll see! Also, I quite liked the Seal Of Rassilon...

If the rumours are true and he does actually go inside a Dalek, I will be so annoyed, because I had that idea some time early last year.

@Petrichore050 As Frobisher he didn't really have a choice. He was pushed around a lot. And **SPOILER IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN CHILDREN OF EARTH** he thought he was doing the right thing by killing his family.
@Undiscovered Adventure I really hope so.
@Undiscovered Adventure I doubt she'd leave on Christmas Day.
Do you know when it might be on (if it is on) in Spain?
@TheWibblyWobblyDoctor12 I'm in Spain too.
@supermoff @ Notsosmartguy the dalek of Jersey Lots of things in Doctor Who don't end in tragedy. Most things.
And before anyone has a go at me, I do not, repeat NOT have a problem with an element of romance in Doctor Who. I liked 10/Rose, Amy/Rory, all the main ones. I just wanted a change in series 8.
@supermoff @Version 3.0 I don't have a problem with the element of romance, but believe me, Doctor Who has never even touched on soapy. I watched a soap for several years, and none of the 10/Rose/Mickey or Amy/Rory stuff has been remotely soapy compared to actual soaps.
@Planet of the Deaf @Version 3.0 Doctor Who has never been a soap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was really hoping this wouldn't be a romantic relationship...
@Version 3.0 @yoshfiction I'm a fangirl and I had kind of hoped they'd just be friends.
@Ivegotnewkidneys on the 23rd @supermoff I think they can stand it. If anyone can.
