@ Notsosmartguy the dalek of Jersey @Rani Nose @note4e @oswaffle @johnmasterchief2 Ah, come on now, practically every movie and tv show ever made, in all of time and space, features magically drying hair/clothes at some point.
Hell, Hitchcock and Scorsese go out of their way to make quirky little continuity errors in movies lol.
Frankly, if you're bothered by things like this, you're being a pedant and not actually watching the show, but instead, looking for ANY 'perceived' faults.

Fabulous! A GOOD dalek story at last!! Capaldi is just fantastic. Jenna is great and I like Danny Pink. Direction was brilliant. That's a 2 episode run of greatness. Keep them coming. Next week's Gatiss tale will take a lighter turn....is it next Saturday yet????

@Dominic Miller @FGM42 I don't know, I thought Tennant was just as dark at the end of Human Nature/Family of Blood and also Waters of Mars. And then Smith made a very grim decision in Dinosaurs on a Spaceship. Darkness is ever present but it will be more so with Capaldi. I love it!!!

@mrclever @YaelMoise hahaha, yes! Remembrance takes place in a universe where Doctor Who is on telly at 5.15, Saturday, after the football results :D Paradoxical wibbley wheeeeeeeee :D :D
@stargazer0118 @Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! Which was probably the downfall of this episode. Gaiman went from the sublime, 'The Doctor's Wife' to this drivel with annoying (completely non-plussed at time/space travel) kids and gimmicky robotic Cybermen.
@Oodkind @Polyphase So does the Doctor from time to time :( and me.....
2 weeks ago on Series 8: Deep Breath New Pics
I think it's simpler than that. I dont think "Am I a good man?" is an arc as such. It's a line from episode 2 but I think Moffat has probably helped shape the first batch of Capaldi stories to nail 12's personality absolutlely and definitively, except, as you point out, with Gatiss, who is likely privvy to much of the material the Moff is and is a LONG TIME fan and thus, needs no help in nailing Capaldi's 'darker' Doctor.

@Big_Bird96 @AztecsDaleksAndCavemen @StandardWhovian hahaha, I remember when it was £1.25!! And less....but £1.25 is when I started buying it religiously....well...my Mum did :D Anyway, I believe it's a bumper issue, (with a poster) hence the pricepoint.

@LaraHarris That's not the official title. Apparently the seal of Rassilon isn't in the real one but I haven't seen the real one coz someone DELETED THE LINK FROM YOUTUBE!!! aaaarrrrgggghhhhhhh :P
@superwrongfoot Deep Breath is BRILLIANT! There are only so many ways to tell alien invasion stories so, of course, some regurgitation is inevitable. Terry Nation wrote the same Dalek story 4 or 5 times!!! :P However, sometimes the stars align and it's just.........RIGHT. I haven't been the biggest fan of Grand Moff's showrunning but every now and again he still pulls a cracker out the hat and Deep Breath, for me, is excellent. Capaldi with Moffat may do GREAT things :)
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Moffat on Why the Master Won’t Be Back
@They're all my favorite Doctor Aaah, the middle eight :D That's how to make a 'worthy' addition to a classic theme.
@Lord Castabarus So agree. I hated the Matt Smith theme from the moment I heard it! And the 'lightning cracking' title sequence too.
@Polyphase Me too! I was pretty gutted when Ecclebump only did one year but if Capaldi only did one, it would be indeed be devastation. He is just sooo good!

1 month ago on Does Deep Breath Really Deserve a Theatrical Release?
@AztecsDaleksAndCavemen The first cinema we tried, in Edinburgh, was sold out in 5 minutes and we got some of the last 4 seats in the one we eventually booked.
@ImTheDoctor It is indeed probab;y down to the status the show now has after RTD's, Tennant, Moffat and Smith's amazing work over the past 7 years with the show's GLOBAL branding. All for the good, I say :D
I'm good wi that. Needs no explanation. Only so many faces in the universe :P

@MaraBackman @supermoff I'm not shy in expressing opinion on my grumbles with the recent show but it's still Doctor Who, so I'll always find something I enjoy in it, however, there's no denying, Who is bigger than it's EVER been and that must be celebrated. And hopefully, now, taken to new incredible heights by the magnificent Peter Capaldi. HE IS the Doctor I've been waiting for!!

@sontaran17 @BazHood You, son, are hilarious. Do not try to justify your silly little reply with 'It was a joke.' It was clearly a sarcastic dig at my comment on, what I consider (YES thats MY opinion), lame story-arcs. You don't like it, or can't be respectful in a retort then be a nice son17 and say nothing. Thank you :D

@Notsosmartguy approves of female thor @BazHood @chmayer classic!
@TheOncomingStorm @BazHood @chmayer yeah, the books are great too. I've just gotten ahead of the TV show now so I'm in spoiler territory :O
@chmayer I'm not American :) But I mean the likes of Breaking Bad, Fargo, True Detective and Game of Thrones. Although GoT is obviously adapted from a very organically progressive book series. These are/were incredible series with believable, cohesive and credible story arcs. Honestly, you can't say anything bad about Moffat's Who on here without 'one of the crew' jumping on your comments with vitriol.
@sontaran17 @BazHood Oh, very droll. Lowest form of with there, son17 but don't feel sorry for me. I have a great life and a broad spectrum of interests. Perhaps when you grow up a bit you'll be able to reply to my comments without your tinted glasses and with a bit of class and decorum instead of rude sarcasm.
Maybe I'm just too long in the tooth, or spoiled by some recent, stellar US shows but NONE of the story-arcs have quite tied up for me. They've been more like way too conveniently joined together, disparate dots. I love Jenna/Clara but The Impossible Girl arc was a yawn. (Aside from 'Asylum of the Daleks' which was clever and The Snowmen which was a fun story in its own right)
@drjakeyoung haha, it barely counts as a scene for me :P

@Second Doctor wouldnt have thought so. Its already had a stand alone release and a box set with all the other Matt Smith Xmas tales, hasn't it? Besides, the Series 8 box should, rightly, be all about Capaldi. New series. New Doctor :D
@YaelMoise @VictorWong1 Indeed but those are from the show (as is Teeth and Curls) victorwong has made up some cracking new ones :D

@Clara Laurinda @VictorWong1 Not to take away from the brilliant list but teeth and curls was, famously, coined by good old SIR Uncle Terrance Dicks! A true Who LEGEND :)
@emby2 Awww, but Colin Baker calls himself 'sixie' and it's ADORABLE ;P
@stargazer0118 @MatthewHawkins Hahaha, It's a wibbley wobbley task running Doctor Who, y'know :P
@VictorWong1 :D :D :D I like, except bowtie fezzykins hahahaha. and I'll have Eyebrows for Capaldi!
@StephenCoppins Nice. Complicatedly concise...but I like it :)
@TheWhovian Over nothing. It's painfully funny.
@YaelMoise It's a nothing statement about nothing, really. Just like the reason for the Doctor now having John Frobisher's or Malcolm Tucker's face. It doesn't need saying/explaining! There are only so many face sin the world ;)
@supermoff @TARDlSkey So exactly who/what is he referencing if not himself? The number ten bus? The actual number 10? The Tenth Doughnut?
The Doctor, quite clearly, has a framework for counting his incarnations, 5 having known he was the fourth regeneration all those years ago, so what Moff said is really fresh air. It's leaves in the wind. Pointless.
This is why I've held off from buying Day and Time (HD) and An Adventure in Space and Time on DVD. A fitting 50th set but why no commentaries???? Rusty Davies used to spoil us with commentaries but their number has dwindled with each passing home video release.
@awkward912 @Esterath @Mikeyboss182 You're missing out!
