I was very apprehensive about this episode because I'm not a fan of Roberts as a writer at all (TL and CT are two of my least favourite episodes), but I have to say I really like the look of this episode. It had me chuckling away so that must be a good sign!

Having done work experience at a Primary School I can confirm they do introduce new members of the team to the existing staff :P

Well that was an alright episode, it wasn't the best episode ever, not by a long shot, it was just a bit...meh. That's the best word I can find to describe it. It was a lot of good fun, but I felt it didn't really offer us anything...it was just there...in a sense. The acting was OK, but it was by far the weakest episode on that front (even Capaldi and Coleman had their off notes in this episode IMO) - Keeley Hawes did hardly anything in this episode. The whole thing just seemed a bit breathless. There was no time to take everything in, before a new twist was thrown our way (and I have to say the twists were so predictable, I guessed everything that happened before it did). So yeah, it's not Thompson's best IMO as I vastly prefer JTTCOTT, but it was good - just nothing special. 7/10

I had the exact same theory as soon as I saw she was cast in the Christmas Special. I actually wouldn't mind this to happen at all because Natalie is a wonderful actress.

Awesome review, DWTV thanks for this. The episode sounds really interesting, and I really cannot wait to see what it's like. I'm a huge fan of Thompson and Moffat so this episode should be right up my street. Also I, like you, really loved Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS; I think people really over-exaggerate how bad it is, and the acting of the Van Baalens - they're not the worst actors to have come onto the show. So if this episode reaches, or better yet, surpasses JTTCOTT's quality, I'll be very happy indeed.

Well after 2 long, long, long hours deliberating over the two choices...I've finally come to a decision, and it was so close, really it was. But in the end I decided to vote for Blink. Sorry Listen, but Blink just has something about it, I really don't know what it is, but it's something anyway, a little extra 'umph' and more 'pow' to it - plus that soundtrack is just gorgeous. So yeah...

I have been sat staring at those two options ever since the poll went up, deliberating over what I think is the best episode...Listen or Blink, Blink or Listen...Hmmm...I actually do not know...not one bit...I love the Weeping Angels, but then I also love the ambiguity of whether there's a threat or not in Listen...I love Sally and Larry in Blink, but I love Clara and the Doctor in Listen... *Twiddles thumbs* I'm going to be here all night I reckon. Damn you, DWTV. Damn you. -_-

Yeah I see your point, but like I said they're there for decoration so I doubt you'd bee sitting in your room and staring at them all the time XD 


Also if my future bf doesn't like the posters I have on my room then that's tough luck tbh :P but tbh, my type of bf is someone who is a geek anyway, so I imagine we'd have a lot of the same interests anyway XD


And as for me I currently have 4 Doctor Who posters up, a DW painting my sister did for me, for my birthday, ermmm 10 mini Harry Potter posters and then a DW calendar too :P

It's just a bit of fun I suppose, and some see collecting memorabilia as a hobby, it gives them something to do doesn't it? As for me I like buying DW merchandise because I love the show, it's as simple as that for me, and I like decorating my room with DW posters and other DW stuff because it adds a nice homely feel to my room, it makes it feel like I own it - otherwise I'll just be staring at blank white walls which isn't very nice to look at. I may not "need" it in a sense, but it's a nice decoration. And do we really need half the things we buy? Do we need a TV, a computer, DVD's etc? No, we buy them because we want entertainment, and it's the same thing here, people buy merchandise for a show they love because it allows them to get more entertainment in other methods than the TV show. 

It's just different tastes at the end of the day - that's what it comes down to.

I didn't intend that to be harsh, I was just trying to present my point if it was a companion she LIKED, she would have liked what happened.

3 days, 19 hours ago on Open Discussion: Is There More to Clara Than We Think?

Reply

Of course it was, because SHE was the companion, any other companion would have done the same. He didn't want to believe there was another way, he convinced himself for so long it was impossible, she just reminded him that he is a Doctor there's always a way. HE saved the Day by figuring out they could use statis cubes. Lets be honest If it was Rose you'd probably be weeping at how beautiful it was.

In Name I agree Clara saved the day by going into the Time Stream and saving the Doctor's life. However in Day all she did was persuade the Doctor to reconsider, it was the DOCTORS who saved Gallifrey, all 13 of them. In Time it was Clara who convinced the Time Lords to give him more regenerations, but it was the DOCTOR who fought in the war and ended up annihilating the whole Dalek fleet into oblivion with his mega regeneration reboot thing. In Deep Breath it was the Doctor who saved the day by either pushing the Half Face man to his death or convincing him to. In Into the Dalek all Clara did was reboot Rusty's memories so that the Doctor could get inside Rusty's memories and transfer a few of his own which ended up going wrong and Rusty killed all the Daleks. In RoS all Clara did in that episode was gather information from the Sheriff, it was the three of them together firing the arrow that saved the day. And in Listen all Clara did was console a scared Doctor, there was no day to be saved because there wasn't really a threat.

When else is she supposed to save the Doctor? Is she supposed to just let him die? No. It's in crucial times because the story demands it - because she's been the central companion in a lot of the most important stories.

How is it HER show? The Doctor is still the primary focus as we look at how he's tackling the new regeneration, his new found darkness, 'alien-ness' and lack of empathy for humans; and the central question of the series: is he a good man? Clara is just a companion, she has a life, interactions with other human characters she knows, and joins the Doctors on his adventures.

Even though I do have a feeling that Clara's role is leading to something bigger and is part of a plot designed by Moffat, I honestly would not mind if there's no explanation, and it's just her being Clara, and doing what a companion does, and that's be there for the Doctor, and save him if needs be. As I said on an article yesterday: what she did in Name, Day, Time is what any companion of the Doctor would have done if they were in her position. All Clara did in those moments was be a companion - and a thumping good one at that IMO. It's no different to Rose forcing the TARDIS control panel open and absorbing the whole of the Time Vortex just to go back to the Doctor and save his life. Or Martha spending a year fighting for her life to spread the word of the Doctor to those in need, or Donna becoming the meta-crisis to save the day, or Amy using her memories to bring back the Doctor into the rebooted universe. I don't see why Clara gets so much criticism for doing what any companion would have done - and has done in the past. So yes, it could be part of a grand plan designed by Moffat, but I couldn't care less either way, because to me she is a great character, a terrific person and a wonderful companion for the Doctor.

I find it absolutely disgusting that he received all of that just for one episode. The fact he handled it with good humour as well just shows how strong he is...I wouldn't have acted like that that's for sure.

Yeah I understand, especially how you have to moderate comments, and when BBC mess up and leak episodes it's then up to you to clear away all the spoilers, thus spoiling it for yourself. :/

Hinchcliffe was Hinchcliffe. ;) But he wasn't a writer, he was a producer during the first three seasons of Tom Baker's run - it's known as the 'Gothic Era' to many and seen as one of the shows highlights.
