@9101112 I don't think there's anything wrong with the 'Doctor Who' movie, at all.

@dragonsfyre @Notsosmartguy The Zygon plot of 'The Day of the Doctor', I think is a mess. It started out really well, and then got ignored half way through to be replaced with the Gallifrey one.
I am with you on nearly everything by the way; in terms of the Moffat era being less serious with its villains.
I have absolutely no problem with farting Slitheen. It's not there to be laughed at, and I don't know anyone that did laugh at that. It isn't exactly necessary, but I hate how negative everyone is about it. It's really a minor detail, which builds suspense, as it helps the audience identify who is actually a Slitheen.
Also, 'The Snowmen' is actually my favourite episode of the Moffat era, because, by that point I've given up on good episodes, but the relationship aspect, and Clara's character there i just think is done so well. It then of course, has the nonsensical and overdone with Moffat, solution of love defeating the enemy. But in terms of characters I think it's a good episode.

I read the article name on facebook and thought she was asking to be 'The Doctor'.
But no, definitely a good role could be found for her.

@supermoff @Ollie Walton Harrod @Big_Bird96 but all of those are pointed out in a lighthearted way. It's the fact that you have to think about how dark it really is.
I'm not just saying "Yeah. Need Death Now! Death Make TV Good!".
Like I've said above, the fact that people aren't dying, when the enemies are supposedly life threatening villains. Along with the fact that more recently they've all been defeated so easily, has just lowered the threat level quite significantly.
So, don't just automatically presume I'm just wanting death for the sake of it. There is a very good reason behind that, because I can't presonally find any of the aliens threatening any more when they don't actually kill anyone (some are killed, but mostly off screen making it seem like an insignificant detail)

@The Outer Space K9 yes see that. It shouldn't be that a Doctor Who episode is considered dark because the villain dies at the end. That happened all the time in the RTD era. I'm not blaming you for saying it; I'm just pointing out an issue I have.

@Notsosmartguy approves of female thor @Ollie Walton Harrod @supermoff @Big_Bird96 I'm not saying it does. But the fact that people have just stopped dying on screen (mostly), on top of how easily most enemies have been defeated more recently, has significantly lowered the threat level of the villains.
@The Outer Space K9 yeah, I don't like it when Moffat usus adult jokes. I find them crude.
Also, 'The Girl in the Fireplace' has been my favourite episode ever since it first aired. (just saying). And I don't think Moffat's episodes of Russel T. Davies' era can be compared as much to his episodes of his era. I think they have a whole different tone.
@hpcwarlord sorry. I'm just gonna ask who you're referring to as control freaks. Not that I disagree or anything

@gunslinger19 @GRANDMARSHALL I don't think Moffat's era is darker at all. It's too lighthearted in my opinion.
@stargazer0118 @TheOncomingStorm well yeah, there's that new guy being brought in
@TheOncomingStorm @Whovian1500 I'm not sure anyone who claims the RTD era is soapy has.
@The Outer Space K9 It was completely understandable. If you have a version of yourself which you really like, the idea of becoming a completely new person is hardly condemnable.

@Notsosmartguy approves of female thor @The Outer Space K9 it's the looking at the camera that is my biggest problem with the 11th Doctor
@supermoff @The Outer Space K9 Moffat actually wrote Matt Smith's first bit in 'The End of Time'.
@The Outer Space K9 wow a long reluctant phase then
@microbat98 no he doesn't mean that. He is saying that he will always remember that incarnation, not every single one, otherwise there would be no point in the statement.
Ten is not saying he is the most important at all. He is saying he doesn't want to go. As in he quite likes that incarnation of him. That is completely understandable that if you like a version of yourself, you wouldn't want to swap that for something else. That's not about being vain; he's not saying "God, I'm gorgeous. I don't wanna turn into an ugly person".
I know it is justified by the fact that he is talking to and reassuring Clara, but it was said in a way that, and the fact that he looked at the camera really just do prove that it was for the fans.
@The8thDoctor @Ollie Walton Harrod self obsession? well that's taking it a bit too far. I'm just saying I couldn't be bothered to read it at that moment, but I did still feel the need to comment on the topic.
The reason I said I couldn't be bothered to read it right now is only to clarify that if I did say something contradictory to the article, then I'm sorry, I haven't read it.
I'm not commenting on anything about the article other than the overall topic, so it makes no difference whether or not I've read it.

@supermoff @Big_Bird96 It's the fact that there are no/very very few on screen deaths, that for me, has made it seem childish.
2 days, 2 hours ago on Capaldi was Adamant About No Flirting in Series 8
@Big_Bird96 in theory. though I'm going to keep some scepticism until the first episode airs.
I think Capaldi's quite head strong then. And it's not in a way that is pushy either. He just seems to know what he wants.
2 days, 9 hours ago on Capaldi was Adamant About No Flirting in Series 8
Oh dear. I know other people like this, but I'm afraid Doctor Who is going to become too commercial. Don't overdo the cinema thing.

Moffat, or whoever is in charge of advertising is really liking their odd trailers for Series 8
3 days, 2 hours ago on Listen! Series 8 Teaser Trailer
@TheOncomingStorm @YaelMoise @MeglosProductions I don't think the Tenth Doctor is that vain. That was commented on as a sweeping statement, for comedic effect, and now so many fans are taking that seriously. He wasn't vain, he just had a personality he preferred.
3 days, 2 hours ago on Why I Love the 11th Doctor’s Regeneration
@MeglosProductions I agree with parts of that, however..
3. The first 4 regenerations weren't quick regenerations.
4. I don't think whether we can imagine it is a reason; it could have been done.
6. And this is where I really start to disagree. The Eleventh Doctor's "I will always remember when the Doctor was me", I don't like, because firstly, it is just fan service. The Tenth Doctor's "I don't want to go" is equally for the fans, but I prefer it to the Eleventh Doctor's because the Tenth's is just a short statement, wehereas the Eleventh's is said in a more poetic way. Poetic sounds like a good thing, but for me, it just comes across as a deliberate attempt of a quoteable line. More importantly, he looks at the camera wile saying it, which does ruin the entire thing for me. That's breaking a wall, and makes Doctor Who seem like it's just being made for fans to go 'woo'. Also, when he hallucinates Amy, he ignores Clara a bit. I didn't feel that was necessary.
Lastly, by adding 'BY FAR' and GOD AWFUL', you just lose the respect of anyone who likes that regneration. And that's not just something to go 'Well I don't need their respect' about. I'm just saying, if you unnecessarily add an extreme opinion like that, anyone who disagrees with that statement isn't going to listen to you at all. - Just a tip.
@EdWhovian Don't try and be specific, and change around the Doctor's numbers. It doesn't matter what it technically is, just call it by its known name, for convenience, please.
And it's not vain. Goodness me. That was said once as a sweeping statement for comedic purposes, and now so many fans are taking that seriously. It's not vain, it's fine. If you happened to like one version of yourself and decided to keep that, that's not vain, it's just a preference, that you'd like to prolong.
I actually can't be bothered to read the article right now, but I don't like it because firstly, he ignores Clara a bit, when he hallucinates Amy. And secondly, and more importantly, he says 'I'll always remember when the Doctor was me', which is just fan service. The Tenth Doctor does this also with 'I don't want to go', but I don't really mind it as much as it's a shorter statement, whereas the Eleventh Doctor's is said in more of a poetic way. Which sounds like a good thing, when I say poetic, but it comes across for me as a deliberate attempt, for quoting. And Matt Smith looks at the camera. That is the one thing I hate. The regenerating bit on the tower I really liked.

@Amy is Hannibal I hate that idea.
3 days, 9 hours ago on Moffat Questions “Twelfth Doctor” Title
Yeah I don't really like the idea. It's quite cliché.
3 days, 21 hours ago on Moffat Questions “Twelfth Doctor” Title
@Amy is Hannibal what about the whole 'fall of the eleventh'
I'm on Moffat's side here. But he is kind of wrong. Only kind of because he is right in saying the Doctor has never referred to himself as being a numbered Doctor.
But the eleventh Doctor has been referred to as that plenty of times.

@Ste_Zace when is that stated?
4 days, 1 hour ago on Moffat Questions “Twelfth Doctor” Title
@JacobHaggerty @Ollie Walton Harrod aah no. That's not what I meant. By mess I just mean the whole issue, that's being pointed out here. As in, what the Doctor should be called, and the fact that it doesn't make sense to call him the 12th Doctor (which I find just pedantic).
I was just trying to summarise what Moffat was doing.
Either way, I've since found out, and realised that Moffat is kind of wrong in saying that, as the Eleventh Doctor is referred to as that several times.
Moffat's not the one who started this.
Basically the fans have moaned at him (apparently) about how calling him the 12th Doctor is wrong. And so he's just replying to that by saying both, it was you fans who started calling him that, and, I'm one of you on this, I agree.
4 days, 10 hours ago on Moffat Questions “Twelfth Doctor” Title
I don't like Moffat generally. But he's not doing anything wrong here.
He's just trying to clear up a mess started by the fandom. He's certainly worded some bits awkwardly, and sounded negative, not really helping himself there, if I'm right in thinking all of those quotes are of him. But he only said that to clear up the fans moaning at him.
It seems he can just do no right though, with some.
4 days, 21 hours ago on Moffat Questions “Twelfth Doctor” Title
That's a question?
I think that's just silly. Calling him the 12th Doctor is fine, because when we refer to that, we're talking about the actor really, not the incarnation. Otherwise he's the 13th or 14th Doctor, depending on whether you count the Tenth Doctor's kind of half regeneration.
It's silly to refer to it as a continuity grenade. And it's even more silly to say it's unpleasant to refer to them as numbered Doctor's. Goodness me, it's all so pretentious.
5 days, 5 hours ago on Moffat Questions “Twelfth Doctor” Title
@Ace Pirosu At the very least?!
That's just being unrealistic. The 10th Anniversary of modern Doctor Who is hardly a milestone when we just had the 50th Anniversary last year. Don't expect any cameo's; other than a potential, but unlikely minisode with Mcgann.

@Me and Stuff @The Genie @TheOncomingSnow @TomLong2 but that's just all down to opinion. Because I much preferred 'The Time of the Doctor' to 'The Day of the Doctor'. So it's not like 'The Day of the Doctor' can just definitively be stated the best.

@davidbrummy @Ollie Walton Harrod @theshipoftime @The Genie @TheOncomingSnow @TomLong2 Thank you. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this.
Though I'm not sure if it would be better if they don't explain it at all in the future, and I can pretend it never happened. Otherwise a terrible excuse could be given.
- Hopse for the best. :)
@Notsosmartguy sells propane and propaneaccessories @TomLong2 because Series 7 was full of poor narratives; with rushed endings. And a couple of plot holes.
@theshipoftime @The Genie @TheOncomingSnow @TomLong2 I hated Tom Baker's cameo. It's okay/good to have cameos as long as they fit with the story, and Tom's cameo is contradictory/brings up questions which I don't like.
- That was really poorly explained.
@TomLong2 Firstly, I agree with your general point. But...
I think Series 7 - part 2 consists only of the worst Doctor Who episodes of the modern era. I think part 1 was better.
I also don't think the lack of story arc was necessarily what was wrong with it. It was more just the narrative of the individual episodes (as you said).
And you can't really aacurately say that Doctor Who will/can never be good with Moffat's leadership. I'm not a great fan of Moffat, and I have a number of criticisms of him, but many people do like him. So, you can't really disregard everyone who does think he's good, because your opinion is superior.
@TheOncomingSnow @TomLong2 or just has a different opinion; and isn't someone who just goes with the hype
Yeah, but you can't really tell that from the trailer. They could end up being just as they have been throughout Matt Smith's time.
And 'Dinosaurs on a Spaceship' wasn't all CGI.
If you know how it went last time, and you didn't like it, I wouldn't be so optimistic that they're going to get it right this time.
Yeah. I don't mind them being used every series; as long as the stories are good. I liked all of the RTD era Dalek stories; 'Journey's End' slightly less. Whereas their recent stories and cameos have portrayed them as quite weak. So as long as their stories are good, I'm all good with it.

@OhGodDannyPink yeah that does make sense.
@MrRazza, the Trainee Omega Identifier yeah. That does have potential to be quite awful. It depends on how it is done though.
@Sam Davern I thought that was someone's hair.
