@A Friend of the Ood @conallmc2013 dalek- yes but he turned good at the end irregardless of his past, Dalek sec was still a dalek even if since he was transformed that is exactly what they were going to do to this dalek in this episode- transfrom it. Lastly i forgot about the Clara dalek in Asylum- which still constitutes I must say. Even then the original daleks on Skaro were obedient and not subject to evil it was only when davros asked for compassion to be removed.

"there has never been a good dalek": Dalek sec and the dalek in "dalek"
1 day, 11 hours ago on 12 Great Moments From Into the Dalek
@declanmclean the dalek in "dalek" fought in the time war and crashed on earth. it hated the doctor and wanted to contact the daleks- how could it be the future of the dalek if it has permanently turned against the daleks. Nor can it be from its pass since the dalek in "dalek" committed suicide
1/ The tardis creates an oxygen field around it for a relativity large radius. 2/ The issue is more how did a dinosaur walking outside Westminster remain unrecorded. Sure the argument was that people thought it was a hoax- yet if i saw a giant fake moving dinosaur of incredible realism I would be telling my grand kids. People also argue about the cracks in time but if that is applicable to EVERY major incident in human history then memory would not exist. It's a lazy excuse for something of that magnitude. Even then an argument couldn't be made that it itself fell through a crack in time since there is nothing but ash left. I do understand that is not the main argument for this theory but nonetheless it is a lazy solution. The only thing possible then is for the paternoster gang to clear it all up but they can't erase the memory of hundreds if not thousands of random people and destroy recorded documents it doesn't add up. 3/ The now clockwork cyborg I don't comprehend how that came to pass- why did he start using human parts to fix himself their primary objective is to fix the ship that would override personal upkeep. Irregardless of which surely the corpses, robots and the dead cyborg on top of St Paul's would mean that even that would be in the eyes of the public. the issue for me is not the physical issue of if the dinosaur would survive etc.. but the linearity of the time stream. It is true of course that time can be rewritten yet the implications of 1- an escape pod with human skin 2- a dinosaur and 3- cyborg/robots etc..

@BeyondThePolice @The_Major yeah but I see humans every day but I couldn't tell between a time lord
@DWTV @conallmc2013 it was never the content of the article which was an issue- it was well written. However my point (which I fear I had not fully suggested) is that the episodes are overrated in a n/10 rating system. Here are examples based on series 6:
Now they suggest that 8 of those episodes were perfect which I cannot stomach as they are not all perfect, there are stunning episodes in that list that are just that bit better than others to be ranked higher. I just feel that the content of the articles are good- of that there is no doubt- I think though that there should be more variation. No harsh criticism as it were only constructive intent. I apologise if I came across otherwise. To truly make a benchmark there needs to be more variation in ratings.

@DasManiac kids founded doctor who's popularity and will always a great demographic to continue to do so.
@MetalPotatoAlex a dangerous prospect, when a spin off goes bad it goes bad... yet what we've seen recently so far is success in torchwood and sarah Jane namely. Personally I would encourage it- Strax more than any other character in any show needs character development. He is a clown at the moment and he needs to reignite the respect of the viewers for his entire race. Comedy is okay but it has come to define himself and the sontaran clones (e.g the time of the doctor)
I disagree with the rating system in these episodes, 8/10? Don't get me wrong it was a descent episode average or slightly greater in my opinion i.e 5-7 (at a push)/10. I think they get carried away sometimes, this rating suggesting that it was one of the best episodes ever.

@Scootersfood @conallmc2013 Strax has made a massive joke out of a once feared enemy, even in the time of the doctor they joked about the sontarans- they are now nothing like those from the time warrior and command no respect (for the supposedly best warriors in the universe)

@Oodkind @conallmc2013 1/i find it impossible for a dinosaur's appearance outside the houses of parliament and in the middle of london not to have been documented. Even if it did become a conspiracy it would have survived as such for hundreds of years because of its large scale and the fact that hundreds of people saw the dinosaur 2/ Rose was in a worse state than clara in the christmas invasion in the fact that the doctor was unconscious, it shouldn't matter anyway the doctor she knew is dead and is a different yet the same man in front of her. Get on with it. 3/ I already conceded the difference in the two ships, however i find it difficult to believe that both ships had similar circumstances were the droids were forced to use the humans for parts. Even so what possessed these droids to harvest human organs for themselves, it should have been left as a one time thing. 4/ They weren't aware of what happened to the cyborg. It's a guess which yet again has left a loose end. 5/ So why did the doctor not stay young if he wanted to when surrounded by amy and clara in their twenties? Even then Amy was a figment of his imagination but how is it possible for an alien to speak like a Scottish person. I don't think 9 was faking it since he took it very sorely when people talked about his northern accent. You make a strong case though- ENTITLED OPINION lol- I just prefer everything to be really air tight with no loose ends
@Julian_Prime73 1/ I hate Moffat's poor execution at times he ahs really good ideas like the empty child or blink but i don't think he should be lead writer alone. Secondly its a show about time travel where there should be no loose ends or massive alterations to the continuum. Incidents like Clara entering the timeline is a plothole and a paradox, and amy and rory's death. Great plots like I said but too many loose end and not efficiently executed.

long shot missy is the rani.
@supermoff @conallmc2013 1/ I totally agree about the cyberking but even that excuse for that instant alone is lazy. Moreover the remains of the robot AND the dinosaur can't both disappear or be forgotten. If the cracks in time destroyed memory then consciousness would cease to exist in the universe its a very lazy solution once is bad twice is inexcusable. 2/ Remember she had the rare chance to see the war doctor, the tenth doctor and the 11th doctor as the one being- rose never had such luxury she just dealt with it. She wasn't even aware of the concept of regeneration. Clara should still know well enough that the doctor changes and there's no changing that so just get on with it. It's not as if the 12th's so outlandish than any of his predecessors. 3/ I understand about the droids (when I wrote about it I was unsure myself) but I find it highly unlikely that both ships were damaged enough to use the crew for parts.
@AaronMcGahon @conallmc2013 I didn't say the episode overall was bad- it was average- but I expected that from a doctor's first episode. Much better than the 11th hour which was filth, better than the christmas invasion, not as good as Rose though. It does raise a few problems that I'd like to see someone counter and give some insight
Disgusting points in the episode overall quite decent for a starter though- good acting all around but I am irritated by certain points: 1/ How was a real life dinosaur walking about london not picked up by anyone enough to be recorded or documented at a massive scale. Surely the word of mouth would be enogh for a general concesus to say definitively yes a dinosaur did walk about london amongst future generations. Like that's not something you forget. 2/ How the hell does Clara not know the doctor anymore- she has witnessed each and every generation of the doctor so how can she be able to think- "He's not got the same personality as the 11th doctor so he is too weird for me". Doesn't make sense. Rose got over it in an episode- a much more loyal companion. Clara didn't care much for him till the 11th phoned her and "forced" her almost to keep at it. 3/ What affiliation does the clockwork droids have with the SS madame de Pompedor droids. They can't be from their past since they harvested the humans from their ship nor from their future since they were all deactivated. 4/ How was the robot's remains not preserved or documented by anyone like what is happening to subtly with doctor who. 5/ All they did that episode is complain about capaldi's old age or his Scottishness (which was exaggerated) at least the 9th doctor said he was from the north. How can the doctor regenerate into a person who has a scottish accent. 6/ Strax (enough said)
theory 1 is pretty reundant humans aren't allowed on gallifrey most of the time- remember sarah jane?. Theory two is more likely but evolution would continue to occur at that time. Rassilon was Gallifrey's first leader and he grew up with the tales of the death zone and his tomb. If Rassilon was 100% time lord centuries before the doctor then why would he be any different. My theory is that the doctor's father is known to be an adventurer, we know the doctor has a thing for "earth girls" so maybe his father did but took things one step further if you catch my drift. However his mother would not become a remember of the council if she was not a time lord. Ultimately the best bet is evolution- the doctor is not human but maybe he descends from humans.

@doctorwhomultiverse the time lord- vampire war- in which was a major event in their history was considered myth until the 4th doctro stumbled across a vampire lord
2 months ago on An Earthly Gallifrey
@Ollie Walton Harrod @conallmc2013 the origins of gallifrey is hazy. The time lord- vampire war was considered myth until the 4th doctor stumbled upon a lord. That being said is it not possible that gallifrey was a humanized colony, thereupon time travel was invented and we then have a civilization present throughout time. It is a reasonable assumption for time lords to believe they are the oldest things in existence but perhaps in a timey-wimey way humans came first. For instance humanity was unaware of evolution until very recently- historically speaking.
@doctorwhomultiverse That's not really true it the fact that we breed like rabbits and spread out across the universe. Earth's always been described as an ignorant child who is unaware of the magnitude of their universal surroundings and ultimately very primitive.
@doctorwhomultiverse He might not know that, the doctor might not know that's the case.
Earth cannot be gallifrey. Evolution in a distant colony i.e gallifrey is the only logical theory.
@Sharaz_Jek humans are described as the pests of the galaxy. In the future we are everywhere in the universe. logically the only theory that is substantive enough to support this point is evolution in the future. Personally I'd rather not know and would not like that theory to be furthered
@hpcwarlord @conallmc2013 wibbly wobbly timey wimey
2 months ago on Moffat: Who says the Doctor is NOT human?
It is possible that the gallifreyans evolved from humans and gallifrey is a humanized colony in the far future- irregardless of which they are classed as different species. However it is impossible for time lords to be human, their anatomy is entirely different although similar to humans.
Either Clara's comment "I don't know who the doctor is anymore" is cliched or the doctor must have undergone a massive alteration. She knows him better than anyone really so she better not be overreacting as she's seen the vast changes in the doctor's persona's.

@A Friend of the Ood @conallmc2013 Remember they were in our universe in the next doctor. Some must have survived as their design was consistent throughout 11's era until "Nightmare in silver" which was awful (I digress) Mondas cybermen are different from parallel cybermen the new design is a mondasian from the future at the point of extinction. For there to be more adventures with the cybermen Mondas should return.
2 months ago on Why Bringing Back Gallifrey Is Right…
@Scrawlers to be fair we didn't know about evolution until very recently if you compare our existence as a species. We don't know the origins of gallifrey- the doctor doesn't really either it was thought that the vampire- time lord war was myth but it did happen. My point is he could be an evolved human from a colony in the future. Personally I'd rather not know it makes watching him more mysterious.
He could be an evolved human from the far future in a distant colony. Of course they are a different species but that's evolution. He isn't human but he could be descendant from humans in a timey-wimey way. Its like how humans have some similarities with apes who we share a common ancestor. With the doctor he is very human at times but also very alien.
You can't and really shouldn't try and go darker than ecclestone. He has a reason to be an "anti-hero", capaldi's doctor has everything to live for! Sure maybe a bit stern and grouchy but still go find gallifrey its the time of your life (lives)

@Amy's on the Mofflex Diet 1- there are infinite versions of clara throughout that one instance of time alone.. so yeah reapers. 2- I don't think the time lords could contain such a massive paradox for such a brief period in another universe be realistic they are great but not that great. Nonetheless it must be said it is a paradox.
@A Friend of the Ood @conallmc2013 I was making a timey-wimey reason for it- by falling through a crack in time into another universe before being hit by hailey's comet- when gallifrey returns socould mondas in that instance. Secondly our universe cybermen originate from the parallel universe when they leaked through. Mondas cybermen are a different kind altogether...possibly. There could be an episode where the parallel universe cybermen create our universe cybermen. Just a thought
@sontaran17 @conallmc2013 @JackArtaganMackenna No joke I actually did! (Not the stasis cubes obviously i knew the outcome just not the execution)
@Notsosmartguy @TheNightmareChild... is Boe Derek @KingOrokos That would have made sense! Technically the whole clara arc is a massive paradox. If he didn't die at trenzelore, a time stream to enter would have been non existent, clara could not enter said time stream, doctor didn't meet clara. UNIVERSE IMPLOSION, FEASTING REAPERS.
@VortexDan It hasn't really it seems quite pointless that the doctor killed the only race intelligent enough to defeat the daleks for no real reason. The daleks returned in mass numbers so he commited mass genocide for what? Don't get me wrong gallifrey RTD era was good but gallifrey must return.
@MacduMela yes but by doing s he DIED. He was "reincarnated" and very unstable. Therefore is it not implied he HAS NO REGENERATIONS LEFT. The time lord's could give him some as an envoy to the doctor or he could be up to his usual antics stealing the doctor's regeneration's.
2 months ago on The Master’s Moffat Plan
I thought that could be a possibility too but would never say it or create it if I was in charge. Humans are "the pests of the universe" in the future so maybe gallifrey is a humanized colony. Of course evolution and mutations take place and you have a gallifreyan, Omega invents time travel and you have time travel. Just a thought- would never be accepted though. The origins of gallifrey have never been explored so its possible just not probable.
@Malohkeh @A Friend of the Ood @doctorwhomultiverse Asylum had a good premise- daleks so dangerous they were abandoned by their own kind. In reality what actually was the threat? Mentally handicapped and physically handicapped daleks who bore no threat whatsoever to the doctor and companions. The thing with clara made no sense whatsoever also. As for victory i liked the episode was awful but excusable in bringing back the elite original daleks. But where did they go? All i have seen since is the generic bronze daleks. Terrible episodes which could have been so much more
2 months, 1 week ago on Why Bringing Back Gallifrey Is Right…
@supermoff @doctorwhomultiverse Still the scenes shown were not at all scary or overwhelming, doesn't hold a candle to WW1 or WW2. I know children watch the show but put some better and more gruesome action
@sontaran17 @JackArtaganMackenna its not a great twist i (like many) predicted the outcome of gallifrey. Gallifrey will come back
@doctorwhomultiverse yes there was the vampire-time lord war in which occured when rassilon tried to gain power from different planes of existence through black holes. One such plane was inhabited by vampires and led to the first time lord full scale war. It drew out for a long time because of the time lord's lower tech at the time and the vampires great resistance. In the end they had to invent bow ships which saw them off- the 4th doctor using one in an episode. The entrance was blocked by Omega. There are apparantly descendents of the great vampires like the plasmavores in smith and jones.
Does the master even have any regenerations left? Technically he died at the last of the timelords and was resurrected in the end of time. If he does regenerate it could be by the time lords will to shape his image, not the master's. Since he wouldn't have any regenerations left he may yet again be looking for regenerative abilities
2 months, 1 week ago on The Master’s Moffat Plan
@Chris502 @PaddyB I'd rather be in the time war than in world war 1/2 the scenes were not at all disturbing. Obviously you couldn't captivate the whole war but a scary glimpse would be overwhelming to picture the overall war itself
@Timhogan Personally I think the master should pass himself off as the doctor because of his new regeneration. He could be elected as time lord president (as before) whilst ordering for "the master" (i.e. the real doctor )to be hunted down. Since they were best friends he would know his name so could instigate the return of gallifrey if he actually escaped the time war.
@Timhogan I think there should be a long wait until finally the doctor succeed's and is dead chuffed with himself... only to see fire raising from the planet in complete instability and several enemies entering the universe alongside too- like the vampires or omega or maybe just one major enemy( there's much potential). The look on the doctor's face of pure shock and fear would be bone chilling
or even the return of the vampire- time lord war
@Malohkeh @A Friend of the Ood @doctorwhomultiverse but were both crap
I thought it was better that the doctor had to live with killing his people to his ignorance for nearly a millennium than actually killing them. It makes you feel more for the doctor because he must live with regret for so long for no reason
@Amy's on the Mofflex Diet there would still be other enemies on the planets surface such as daleks the war may still be going on for all we know in the pocket universe. But I understand your comment it would be more intense during the time lock than after
