I think because people have watched it so many times, it doesn't have the same "magic" it had on first viewing, and people immediately cast that off as the story being "overrated" and not as good as they first thought. But really it's because they know what's coming because they've seen it so many times! XD

I for one am in complete agreement with you. I always savour this episode for really special occasions and I always feel the way I did when I first watched and get taken away by the truly brilliant story and get creeped out by the Weeping Angels! It's by far one of my favourite episodes of DW!

I just don't think it's an interesting way to go about her exit, it's what almost everyone wants to happen, it's expected, it's now predictable. I feel her exit should shock us all, be something we didn't expect. Be more dramatic and more painful than death, that will stand out for years to come. But I think we should just agree to disagree XD

But we've already seen two versions of the same character die! It'd just be the same really, and it'd be tragic and heartbreaking for a while - but then we'd just fall in love with the next companion and then that'll be it for Clara. She deserves so much more than that IMO.

Meh I find death a bit overrated and not very dramatic - because in a show like Doctor Who where they keep moving forward there'd be no time to really focus on the effects of her death and it;ll be brushed over and forgotten about after a while. I'd much rather Clara's exit be more meaningful to her character.

I think, if she does leave in the series finale, it'll be like Amy and Rory in The God Complex. She leaves in the finale, the Doctor goes off and does something in the Christmas special, and then the Doctor bumps into Clara again in Series 9! :)

But a character leaving is completely different, they'd have to alert agents around the country that they're casting for a new companion, and also Jenna's agent would have to start opening her up for other new roles which would mean if Clara was leaving we'd have heard something by now, as something would have gotten out, or the BBC would have announced it before hand to stop it from leaking before they wanted to.

And she's a school teacher as well, and going by her comments about the TARDIS arriving in a school cupboard I imagine we'll be seeing her try and hide the Doctor from her pupils and colleagues as well, which will be really interesting (and hilarious) to see XD It'll be great having all parts of her life affected by her travels with the Doctor: her home life, her family life, her school life etc. etc.

I'm loving the idea of Clara trying so hard to keep the Doctor and her personal life separate, because we just know that is never going to happen, which will lead to so much conflict between the two and will really test Clara as a companion - and her relationship with the Doctor. This is exactly what I was hoping to hear, Clara has been in need of some more character development, and it looks like she will certainly be getting it with a new and very interesting take on the Doctor/companion dynamic! Series 8 can't come fast enough! :)

Nice article, but I disagree. I personally LOVE the design of the Time War/RTD Daleks and don't see the need to change them at all (If it aint broke, don't fix it!). They have a nice, simple, design that really works well. The Paradigm Daleks were a bit too colourful and bulky for my liking.

I really love the expression on 12's face on that cover. No fancy poses, no over the top expressions, just him gazing into the camera, giving off a commanding aurora - a sense of class and sophistication. Everything I expect his Doctor will be. Not one to flap his hands or rave about a plan that he doesn't have - he'll just stare quietly, and darkly at his enemies, knowing full well they'll do his bidding.

It's absolutely brilliant (and exciting) how much press coverage this new series is getting. It's showing just how popular the show is becoming and helps to really pump up the excitement for the new series! :D

This should put those who were saying Capaldi is arrogant to rest. It's clear from this that he DOES care about the Doctor's that came before him, as he says in the article, he understands he wouldn't be playing the character now if it wasn't for them. He just, quite rightly, wants to set his Doctor apart from the rest and create his own new take on the character. Also it's really nice to hear that even though there will be no flirting between them, there will still be a lot of love between Clara and the Doctor, I reckon it'll be like the Doctor/Donna relationship, except more moments where they clash. I really cannot wait tbh, and I'm really liking everything that's been said about Series 8 so far. Bring on the 23rd of August! :)

Yeah that's what I meant by the second part of my comment. Whilst the argument about Capaldi's comments was an example of the passionate fans trying to get their opinions heard, there's other examples of people like Michael Moon, and occasional Huknar as well that just want to provoke a massive argument on the articles in an attempt to cause some chaos and/or are attempting to troll.

I'd say it's mostly because we have a fandom full of really passionate fans who care about the show and try and get their opinions heard meaning a lot of people clash together (like the second argument), but then a lot of the time it can be because they just want to cause a bit of uproar (which I think Michael Moon was attempting to do).

Someone just posted on Tumblr that "apparently" the Series 8 finale script has been leaked. With a load of hashtags saying "someone is in trouble" and other stuff. So I replied asking where they got this information from, but they've not replied yet... 

I'm going round Tumblr now seeing if I can find any more information and other sites. I'm thinking it's not true, but it's always best to be safe.
