@charlottek23 I hope not. Moffat has already done something too similar (Silence in the Library).

@mayotango131 He didn't hate UNIT, he hated its' militarization. He didn't reject Martha after finding out that she was working for them and he didn't reject Ross either.

@Kathrin Lily Franke @jredf2003 I think he's talking about the TARDIS in The Lodger and The Impossible Astronaut. The shape of the console looked sort of like caskets.

@AnthonyJFuchs This is exactly what I was hoping for with this Doctor. He's unpredictable and no longer does what would necessarily be considered "the right thing", but he doesn't carelessly throw away people's lives without good reason. Everything he does is planned in a way that he'll get the job done, and yet the things he does can still shock us because he doesn't normally work like that. It's the reason I love Seven.

@Matthewfupp @declanmclean The only time I can remember it being stated that the Daleks have a hive mind is in Asylum. Apart from that episode having continuity problems, I assumed that it was only those Daleks who had a "hive mind" by being connected through whatever system was in the Parliament. Sort of like how you could say people have a "hive mind" through the internet: we get updates on what's happening at the same time and can instantly communicate with anyone about anything.

@Warpstar I guess it depends on what Missy's goal is. If she's just trying to save people, she probably took both of them. If she's trying to use them as an example of what people do because of the Doctor, you might be right.

@Kathrin Lily Franke @jchinuk I don't think the Half-Face Man jumped/was pushed to help people and he ended up in Heaven too.
10 hours, 59 minutes ago on 12 Great Moments From Into the Dalek
@The_War_Braden We don't actually know if Ross ended up there or not. They didn't say either way. It's possible that everyone who dies this season will. What if all the death this season is leading up to a big "this is what the Doctor does to people" moment in the finale? Moffat seems to like that sort of thing. That would be more grim and blunt than usual, but he did promise a darker show this year.

@conallmc2013 The Dalek in Dalek still killed dozens of people. Dalek Sec was only good after being transformed into something that wasn't a Dalek anymore.

@Jaylcookie I thought most of the CGI looked good. It's the obvious green screen that I thought needed some work.

@The Finn @Padaster
Missy: Welcome to heaven! I hope my boyfriend treated you well, it was hard to tell what was happening. He was so tiny!
Dalek: *flails tentacles*
Missy: *looks disgusted*
Dalek: *continues flailing tentacles*
Missy: You're quite a nasty little creature.

@nathanrushton I'm thinking they had her in the first two episodes to get our attention and that she probably won't be in the next few. Maybe a mid-season appearance and one or two near the end to build up to the finale. Then again, this is the man who had cracks in time showing up behind refrigerators...
@Dominic Miller @Joseph Graham I don't remember seeing a Dalek fly in Revelation. I'm certain Remembrance was the first time.

@Goldidee Your nine year old is old enough to know about this. It's not an adult theme in any way. You're trying to keep them ignorant from something that is both common and natural. That doesn't solve any problems; it only creates more.

@jsx @TheOncomingHurricane "...its not my fault that they are self harming"
Actually, it is. If you, or anyone else, spread hate towards people for something that they didn't choose, can't change, and doesn't hurt anyone else, then yes, you are contributing. You mentioned a friend who committed suicide because she felt like she was treated badly for her beliefs: you're doing the exact same thing to us right now, and then you have the audacity to accuse us of being intolerant. Want to talk about "basic human manners"? Stop insulting people who only wish to be treated with the same respect that you take for granted.
@XanderH I'm an American, but I understood most of it. There were only a few words that were hard to understand when he was talking fast.

@Meh Meh Meh Meh Meh But for everyone to be treated equally, representation is important. And yes, I do want more female writers on Doctor Who. There's no excuse for the fact that every single writer for the last few seasons has been male.

@Oliver J. "cool" @Clara Laurinda @Nicene Nerd It's not a "lifestyle" though. We live our lives exactly the same way you do. It's not something you can even disagree with, it's just how some people are. It can't be chosen or changed.
Yes, I know you're not being hateful about it, and I respect your opinions, but I'm just trying to show you how "I don't agree with the lifestyle" sounds to someone who has to live with it.
@TheDaintyDraper "We live in a time, where this "gay rights" campaign is just a license to indulge in intercourse with a member of the same sex."
No. That's private stuff. No one is "asking for permission".
"My issue with this particular instance is that yes, it's trying to
achieve acceptance in a wider demographic- but to me, it's SM saying
"Look at me! I'm so politically correct! Let me shove gay rights down
your throats!". I don't express contempt for people with a homosexual
orientation, nor do I wish them any harm. I just can't comprehend this
whole gay rights issue."
What we want is to be treated the same as straight people. That's it. Let us get married, adopt, and treat us equally and we'll be happy. No one is shoving anything down your throat.
@Oliver J. "cool" Some people are gay. It's not a choice, so it's not something that you can agree or disagree with.
The episode had Vastra and Jenny as main characters, so of course they're going to mention their relationship.

@StephenAHayes The Gunslinger? I didn't know there was a Dark Tower crossover ;)
I do think A Town Called Mercy was better than The Angels Take Manhattan. TATM is almost guaranteed a higher rating, being the Pond's farewell and the end of an era.

@AaronMcGahon I don't know about the people on Tumblr, but a lot of people who dislike Moffat actually do have good reasons. I don't recall ever hearing anyone blame Moffat for things like the cinematography or costumes. Complaints about Moffat are, in my experience, about his writing. Nevertheless, even though I don't usually care for Moffat's episodes, I thought Deep Breath was fantastic.

@ Notsosmartguy the dalek of Jersey I agree with all the positive things you said, but not the negatives.
1. I'm glad the dinosaur wasn't the focus of the whole episode. I'm not sure how much more they could have done with a big dinosaur in London, especially in a 75 minute episode.
2. I liked that it wasn't just a repeat of The Girl in the Fireplace. They did something new with them without really changing them.
@TheGreatCompanion I'm worried she'll be just another River/Tasha/Kovarian "strong female" archetype. I really wish Moffat would come up with a different type of character.
@TheEyeOfHarmony @DavrosLives It didn't seem like something someone who nearly committed genocide against his own species would do? Besides, we don't actually know if he pushed or not anyway. He could have jumped.
@Kathrin Lily Franke @TheNightmareChild redecorated (You better like it) Companions definitely sleep. Remember Amy and Rory complaining about their bunk bed?

"Don't look in that mirror, it's absolutely furious!"
@Alleigh I doubt it will be anyone we've seen before. I'm guessing it's either the Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere or some new character who will be introduced later.

I hope the singular "Robot" in the title is a mistake. "Robots of Sherwood" sounds so much better and it wouldn't make sense to say "Robot" if there's more than one...

@robdw @A Friend of the Ood "Oh ferchristssakes, get real, they're more international than they've ever been, they've just done a bloody world tour!"
That's my point. There are fans all over the world who would want to watch it.
"If they can't get it to the whole world immediately it won't be for want of trying."
There's no reason they can't put it on YouTube like they did for the Day and Time of the Doctor videos, which were the same length.
"They've just found a way to bring back Confidential and you're bellyaching that it's on the wrong channel!"
Yes, they're (sort of) bringing back Confidential, but in a way that half of the fans can't even watch it.

@Exalos I think it's that Gatekeeper person. She's been spotted on the set of a couple different episodes so she seems significant.

"Imagine the worst possible thing in the universe, and then don’t bother..."
This might be the most "Doctory" quote I've heard from this season so far.
After Asylum of the Daleks, I'm glad the Dalek episode was written by someone other than Moffat.
Only on iPlayer? And what about all the people who don't live in the UK? Nice to know the BBC cares about the fans in the rest of the world...
