I liked all 7 series. And I'm sure I'll like series 8 too.

And I really enjoyed the complicated arc in S6 and I liked S7. So no matter how many changes there are it will never please everyone.

Try watching The Brain of Morbius. I loved this story so much I stayed awake until 2 am to finish watching all the parts.

It's the longer scene part that gets me most excited. We haven't had that many of them epecially in S7 (which I still love despite some obvious faults) and it's good to have a little space to breath between being chased by monsters and roaming about the Universe.

Moffat's series were a bit more varied while RTD preffered to stick to the format he knew worked. But change is part of the show and so is variety.

I totally forgot this was released today with all the series 8 hype. It sounded great and I was going to buy anyway it but this excellent review convinced me to order it as soon as possible.

Can't wait to read it.

Vastra takes her detective work very seriously by the looks of that board. And Capaldi's eyes are just so alien. After the chin there are the eyebrows and the Capaldi stare. Is it just me or is it like he can see deep into your soul?

Also, is that a very subtle smile we see in the second picture? Looks like it to me.

The Doctor seems to have got a blackboard in the TARDIS. Now he can truly explain the dynamics of time and space to his companions.

I've watched the Classics too but I always felt that the Doctor/companion relationship was a bit too platonic. Just a little bit of romance isn't such a bad thing. I'm not suggesting a 10/Rose relationship just I don't know, somethng to make chracters feel human and real. As far as I am concerned Clara may have loved 11. Who, in her place, wouldn't? It makes his loss more painful for her. But this never means it should ever end up like a Big Brother or soaps kind of relationship and so far except maybe with Rose it didn't get that far.

I don't think losing fans is a problem After all very few will give up the show and those who (very wrongly) complained Matt Smith was too young and  who didn't like his take on the character will return.

I don't think Clara and 11 would have had a 10/Rose relationship. The Doctor loved and lost River I don't think he would have ever got to have a similar relationship to the one 10/Rose had, because he knew how it would end and wouldn't do that to Clara.

There were definetly plenty of flirty moments of 11/Amy. I'd be more curious  to see his atitude to Danny and I hope it won't be just a comic relief thing like Mickey/9.

Clara will probably be the one who resons with him, his bridge to communicating with humans and the one who'll turn him from a snarling beast to a better person, a good man.

And I think he'll listen to Clara because he truly cares about her and he feels responsible for her well-being and happinness after everything she did for him.

I don't really see anything wrong in calling him Doctor Who but people instantly hate you if you do. Plus I believe that Eclestone was also credited Doctor Who.

It's official. Moffat called Capaldi a grey-haired stick-insect. This must surely mean he thinks the Doctors are ugly.

I can see the trash headlines now: Moffat has just called Peter Capaldi's Doctor a grey-haired stick insect. This follows the statements he made last month when he said the Doctors were ugly.

This is why I thought David was a popular Doctor among those who were not Whovians, he was easily relatable and he didn't do crazy stuff to make fans a bit weary. Matt on the other hand was more alien and those who were not used to the Doctor's alien nature found it a bit more difficult to get used to him.

Looking at the comments, some people seem to think Capaldi sounds smug. I don't think that's the case, he's just more frank than the last couple of Doctors. He is an experienced actor and therefore he's got the confidence to make these bold statements.

Nothing against that but I want to see him in action and make up my mind about him rather than just taking his word for it.

Well, Matt was never a dark Doctor himself (he had his moments too but there were many more lighter moments) but I always though the concepts and ideas in his tenure were pretty dark. Just because he was a funny, ridiculous and friendly alien kind of Doctor makes people overlook the fact that his stories were pretty dark.

So I think we can say the way the Doctor is weighs more than the themes of the episode in people's minds. With a dark Doctor, the stories will be more probably considered dark too.

Agree, it's Tennant's best performance by far. Objectivly I think it's clearly  the best episode of his tenure in terms of quality.

The scene at the end of The Bells of Saint John when Miss Kizlet says "Where is my mummy and daddy? They said they won't be long" stuck in my mind, it had an impact because you realised the effect it had on her, how cruel the GI was.

I always thought The God Complex was very subtly and cleverly dark. I mean we all have something to fall back on when we are afraid and using that very thing against us, making us so scared that we resort to the most intimate faith we have was a really interesting concept..

The darkest episode for me has to be Waters of Mars because we reached a point where we couldn't  rely on the Doctor to fix things, when his judgement was clouded and his gradual transformation into the Time Lord Victorious was a very radical change. In this story he starts off as the good old fashioned hero we are used to and in the end he more or less forces someone into committing suicide. I also found the death of those people in the base more impacting than usual when stories are focused on a small group of people.

A true masterpiece, Waters of Mars in my opinion.

I've often wondered what kids may think about some of Moffat's flirty lines like "I'm quite the screamer" or the whole scene at the end of Flesh and Stone.

This doesn't prove the show is not just for kids it's just that when I was younger I didn't really like Moffaty's episodes (like The Girl in The Fireplace) because I didn't really understand everything and I thought they were soppy. I started to appreciate them more once I grew up.

Great article! I love Gwen, she is my favourite character in Torchwood and I liked her from the start when she was a policewoman and didn't give up untill she found out what Torchwood was. She generally comes across like a real, flawed person who is doing her best to make the right moral decisions in her life.

Happy birthday, Eve Myles! Hope we'll see you again in Torchwood some time!

And directed by Peter Capaldi.

Maybe a Doctor-lite episode (more like The Girl who Waited less like Blink in terms of The Doctor's involvement) so it would be easier for him.

I thought it was a very harsh thing to kill Tricey in an episode which was most obviously aimed at children. But then the Doctor does kill Solomon at the end so it was clearly a dark episode too.

I just love how Moffat writes these little outside TARDIS scenes in his episodes. The scene from the Beast Below where the Doctor is holding Amy's foot is one of my favourite scenes ever and it makes the TARDIS look even more magical.

I agree with the ratings but although I don't hate TDTWATW it was still the only Moffat episode where I guessed the ending that Marge's husband was going to be saved and I think that if he had stayed dead the message of the episode would have been more powerful (7/10).

And I'd rate Power of Threea 8/10 I really like it, despite the rushed ending.

I never rate episodes lower than 7/10 and it's not because I'm positive, it's just that I don't think any episode deserves to be any lower. Ratings like 3/10 are frankly ridiculous.

From this interview I kind of get the idea he didn't like the direction the show took under Moffat and Matt Smith. I don't know I kind of like the whole funny light side Doctor Who had sometimes and although I've got nothung against a darker Doctor I hope he won't be like that all the time.
