@Typo42 A Gent of Clare @conallmc2013 its one thing when there is logic behind the upgrading but in this case they were able to react out of nothing- there was no feed of additional energy so how could the cybermen suddenly do the things they did simultaneous with other upgrades.

the time for pitchforks is over its time to nuke the galaxy to rid us of the infestation! It was utterly utterly terrible and have since ruined the potential that the cybermen had since new who. the fact that they can magically upgrade on the spot is diabolical and makes no sense even in a sci fi show where LOOSELY anything can happen. There is no limit. You shoot one with a bazooka and it suddenly evolves to deflect the missile- it bears no sense- and completely demeans the threat of the cyberman if he is completely overpowered. It had potential granted... the mind game between the doctor an the cyberman infection was brilliant, good acting from warwick davies and the cast in general- except the kids- completely uninterested in the fact they have just space traveled.

I've never liked Moffat as a head writer that much that's
always been very clear to anyone who recognizes me on this site! Largely I have
found his finale's to be anticlimactic and I have never really appreciated the
conclusion to any of his major arcs. HOWEVER i must give credit where it is due
in the fact that he is very talented his ideas are good and there have been
many times when i have been excited for the finale but always felt underwhelmed
AT A PERSONAL LEVEL OF COURSE.
HOWEVER to give credit where it is due I will mention the
1/ This series has been the most consistent and enjoyable
for me since series 3 I would say- a few poor episodes here and there IMO but
some class ones as well, an intriguing arc and great character development at
the same time. I really think (HOPE!) that in my view Moffat has finally been
able to refine his craft and I must say with enthusiasm- yet caution that this
finale could be the best yet.
2/ The fact that he is involving the Cybermen is a feat in
itself. In general they are monotonous i.e. DELETE or UPGRADE. In this finale
however it seems as if Moffat will give them greater direction and a future
currently untapped since its restart. The whole mystery of the finale is
fantastic is really good as well- In the past it was always somewhat blatantly
obvious i.e. Bad Wolf, Torchwood and that’s one of the only things to date I
will be thankful for after his departure. The only thing for me is if the successor
can take his prototype and perfect it. If it is done well- In my view anyway- I
will be the FIRST to commend him for his success and will be HIGHLY expectant
of Moffat from here on in, if he fails to live up to my expectation, well it
could be another irritating chapter of “things that might have been” in the
book of Moffat
I hope I am right and Moffat creates a spectacular finale-
one that does justice to the improved quality of this season. HOWEVER to bring
things back to earth even if Moffat does create the best finale ever he has
still failed (for me) in pretty much every one since his induction so needs to
replicate that form in the future like IMO RTD did for 5 years- EXCEPT journey’s
end I must concede in the prospect of fairness with the general view of the

@Master Michael Moon @LloydEllis yeah wouldn't there be colossal damage of trees overturning cars and trees growing in houses?
@supercyberlumic DINOSAURS ON A SPACESHIP
the sisters eyes glowed possibly at the end or was possibly the reflection of those firefly things i'm thinking the latter but if the former significant?
@LloydEllis what happened to all the escaped animals on the loose?
wouldn't the trees have an effect on the planets atmosphere. Historically speaking there was reverse global warming were the planet became COLDER due to more trees. Surely the CO2 would be completely removed and drastically alter the temperature on the planet?
could the 2d creatures use a mirror to get into our dimension? Wouldn't it be easier?

@TheDreamer @conallmc2013 @ilyootha, a proud member of C.L.A.R.A. @The Administrator i know we don't all have the same opinions but you have stated that MUMMY is better than deep breath. If you truly think that then deep breath should be demoted to recognize the fact you prefer mummy over deep breath. That's my point! I am conservative in ranking to rank how bad or good an episode is and if i would ever watch it again or how frequently i would afterwards. That's why I make an effort hard as it is to seperate one episode with a ten from another unless on a rare occasion they are both as good as the other

@ilyootha, a proud member of C.L.A.R.A. @conallmc2013 @The Administrator yeah but thats different because there is a defined marking scheme. However episodes in mind most episodes are not perfect so do not deserve 10 ratings but 9/8 if it was truly good. A ten is blink, the empty child episodes, listen ughh and this one I'd say since most fans so far are in large agreement and I'm sure could be considered better EVEN slightly than deep breath. By giving them both a ten it means you thought both episodes were as good as each other whereas you would think otherwise. I refuse to believe that every episode in a season is perfect which completely makes the rating system pointless. Like the ones on this site rounded would all equal 8/10 really so that suggests all episodes are as good as another. Its like we fear giving an episode 5 but 5 doesn't mean its bad or good so we have to give a 7
@BollingerKnickers you are not alone however tonight's episode was class and this season a vast improvement than most seasons prior to Moffat's takeover IMO
@Robertclose he did some tardis stuff behind the scenes and the tardis had to be "rebooted" so it could work.
@The Administrator how can you give EVERY episode 10 (bar time heist) it demotes the actual rating of a ten. I can guarantee that when you think about it one of those episodes is better- if not slightly. Why then set it at the same level as a comparatively weaker episode. Not to say the season is GOOD which it is But you must reconsider ratings there is too many 10s floating about
@IceDaleks optic nerve?
THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE WHAT AN EPISODE! What an episode! Top class plot, execution, acting dialogue the list goes on. I despised listen which many seemed to think rivaled blink. Well this season I hope has taught us to think again- that episode was a masterpiece and gives Blink a run for its money and blows listen out of the water (if it was in the water). A fierce episode that showed the potential that such a dismal episode Fear her could have been WOW MIND BLOWN 10/10 my first major opinion on an episode in a long time

@AnthonyJFuchs @Old Whovian Also I would sooner see a doctor of another ethnicity or race
@Old Whovian i agree it would make literally no sense if he just turned into a woman, he hasn't done so across his lifespan of 2000 years and why would he if he could change anyway? In evidence I would say that in the "night of the doctor" the chalice is said to have- "the ability to change one's gender. If the doctor CAN or COULD change gender when he regenerates then WHY would a chalice that apparently holds such properties be revered- the answer is because it is something incredible.

I didn't agree that Clara was the ambassador for
earth- Should it not have been the elected astronaut who should have
communicated with earth. Like we gave her the power to detonate the nuclear
bomb surely she would be the main focus.
Also I didn't agree with the fact that Clara chose not to
detonate the bomb- Sure yeas it was the correct decision but it completely
writes off humanities choice in the matter and makes it seem dictatorial by Clara-
it should have been a democratic choice. I found it hypocritical therefore when
people criticise the doctor for not taking charge over the people of earth and
making the decision for them when Clara goes onto to do the exact same.
That being said I’m with the doctor- it was earth’s choice-
one in which could go either way so the doctor could afford to be passive and
allow earth to make a decision. It could well be described as a pinnacle moment
in earth’s history and one in which the doctor made the right call in making
earth learn and take rare responsibility like Silurian-human talks. People say
he was patronizing predicting the outcome- but he got the prediction wrong- he
thought earth would vote no to nukes so he wasn't actually being cocky when he
made this decision and perhaps the decision which was made Clara and not humanity undermines humanity as a

@ilyootha @conallmc2013 and what about the fact mondas and earth were split apart due to the formation of the moon? Face it thats quite a few plot holes at an initial level to be seen
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Rate & Discuss Kill the Moon
@ilyootha @conallmc2013 what about the silurians? The reason they hibernated is because a "meteor" was coming to earth which we of course know is the moon. So not only is the continuity of the future (after 2049) but also the entire past essentially of the human race prior to 2049 its a joke!
@tom colman @conallmc2013 @ilyootha tv show comes first it is the cannon of the show and does not consider incorporating stories or arc with other mediums due to the difficulty it presents
this is essentially like "listen" again were the writer's have left plot holes in the story in which adoring fans must defend by pulling excuses out of the air. And then when you post the mistakes you are met with a mass of stubborn fans who essentially gang up and condemn the person who underlines the discontinuity and make it seem conclusive that it was entirely within doctor who's arc. Just remember- "sanity is not statistical"
@supermoff is on the Orient Express...in space! @conallmc2013 @Typo42 if you go back in time and kill Hitler then you bring 6,000,000 Jews back int o the equation, countless soldiers from across the world, fascism and communism would still be growing across the world, the cold war would not happen, anti- antisemitism might still be the case in society. It was stupid how the humans tried to eliminate Hitler from history- talk about the butterfly effect! And even the premise itself was really childish- lets kill Hitler! takes little to no effort to create this story and its only purpose was to bring the robots controlled by tiny people into the mix so the finale could make sense.
@ilyootha @conallmc2013 what you refer to is not canon but prose/audio/comics etc...
@tom colman @ilyootha @conallmc2013 exactly so it means that humans would not really possess the technology to build a moonbase within a year after formulating the new calculations for a new moon, actually building the parts for the moon as well as putting it actually on the moon- that would prove to be a herculean task. Equally I don't think many people would have anticipated the moon exploding so there was no blueprints available or planning to create a new moonbase in such short time. Also I wouldn't say this inspired humans to go into space- at this stage it would be self-preservation since the oil shortage, climate change and the ozone layer being destroyed. Human exploration really began with the waters of mars 10 years after this event.
@ilyootha @conallmc2013 even then there would be considerable effects upon the gravity of the moon since it would most likely be in a different place, perhaps different mass and even shape a whole load of calculations would be required before the base could be made which would take a while. They would also need to test the stability of the moon itself as well.
@tom colman @conallmc2013 @ilyootha he made it very clear that it was earth's decision to make- and he didn't know that the dragon thing would lay a moon egg.
@ilyootha @conallmc2013 yeah but the doctor suggested the moon was a hologram at one stage. I wouldn't deny that logically they would establish a base on the moon however it would take years to construct the actual base itself. (incidentally i forgot to distinguish the episode from the base in context)
At one stage the doctor suggests the moon could be a hologram but two significant episodes the moonbase (where the cybermen tried to control earth's weather) and the seeds of death (where the ice warriors wanted to control earth's t-mat system)- continuity error. Notice the moonbase was in place a mere 1 whole year after kill the moon. So the question must be asked how could you produce a fully functional moonbase in just a year (2050) give or take. This is the kind of ignorance i hate regarding the shows continuity
@ Notsosmartguy Will Kill the Moon @conallmc2013 @Typo42 you and i are very different people...
@Typo42 lets kill hitler was a disgusting episode which made no sense to the continuity of the human race as well as the whoniverse
@NathanSoderberg she added nothing to the story but she wasn't the sole aggravation I must agree with you. It was her idiotic comments and input that irritated me and the fact that "everyone is special" the fact is in the universe humanity makes smaller than a spec of difference even the doctor's barely scratched the surface so i hate the pandering she caused to make the doctor again look like an anti-hero
i hate the girl SO MUCH....

I thought it was a good episode 7/10 equals my opinion of robot of sherwood. The problem for me is I haven't witnessed a break through "serious episode". Both of those episodes were a good laugh but not an edge of the seat one if you catch my drift. Not to say other episodes were bad of course just fairly average- time heist probs being the best episode so far. Hated listen and into the dalek though. Looking forward to next week looks class.
