@TheElusiveWhovian True, but on the other hand, it means you get a very, very mixed show like series 1 and series 2.

@supermoff I didn't expect a Christmas Carol to be so divisive O_o even more divisive than Angels Take Manhattan or Death in Heaven!

@The Finn is excited for audio Kate Stewart! I'm going to take an extreme example to explain how divisive stories and consistent series can work together. Imagine if series 2 was just about Fear Her and Love&Monsters. Each story on its own is divisive but the series is consitent(ly bad) according to the poll.
Wonderful article, supermoff! I'm curious, is there enough data to determine if people like/dislike Doctor-lite/Companion-lite episodes? I think it would be interesting to see which one people prefer.
@DaftDalek Victory of the Daleks is very good.

@10kcooper I didn't count Christmas Specials, I get : Series 4 - Series 5 - Series 8 - Series 1 - Series 3 - Series 6 - Series 7 - Series 2
@Grand Fenwick I agreed with you until you mentioned Courtney. She's one of the best child actors the show has had. Top5, easily

@SonicTheHedgehogRules @Clara Bosswald @JoelNewton People complain about arcs, they complain when it's self-contained... I liked it that way. I don't want my Ponds to be sad and divorced for their last stories.
@SonicTheHedgehogRules @Clara Bosswald @JoelNewton I don't see why people hate it so much. Replace "divorce" with "break-up" and no one would be complaining. Not enough to bring the episode down for me. I love watching Eleven trying to get them to talk to each other.
@JoelNewton As someone who wants more from the Daleks than mindless shooting, Asylum of the Daleks had better plot, characters, concept and directing. Just my opinion of course
@Russell T Dalek I don't suppose we could do the same thing for Classic Doctor Who...? It would take ages but it would be fun. NO FACE-OFF though! You've had enough tears DWTV.
@TheTimeTraveller is excited for series 9 Because it was fun. Fun is baaaad. Fun For Children. Doctor Who should be Nolan Gritty. </rant>

@TheOncomingHurricane The Crimson Horror is amazing though :(
@Typo42 "Magic Carrots" The kid who plays Samaritan's avatar in Person of Interest is a great villain.

@TheOncomingHurricane @Oodkind What plot? Exterminating them all every series just to bring them back a year later?
4 days, 19 hours ago on The Bottom 10 TV Stories of the Decade
@the666thdoctor Hugo-nominated, Emmy-nominated Mark Gatiss - how does he get work? Steven Moffat, Russel T Davies and the writing community all seem to agree he is talented. You don't have to like his episodes, but suggesting that he only gets work because he's friendly with Moffat is just rude to be honest.

@4sure Any story that gives me two Matt Smiths instead of one is okay in my book.
@TheOncomingHurricane @3rdDalektotheLeft - minion of D.O.C.T.O.R. My heart sank a little.
- Fear Her : 100% deserved. It's the Phantom Menace of Doctor Who. Shameful.
- Love&Monsters : This story deserves better. Sure, the last 15 minutes are utter garbage, but people seem to forget the first 30 minutes which were full of great characterization and performances.
- In the Forest of the Night : I don't like it, but 3rd worst, come on people! If only for "I don't want to be the last of my kind", it deserves to be a bit higher.
- The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe : Overall bad, but it's got a lot of saving graces. Matt Smith is great as the caretaker, Madge is wonderful, the last scene with the Ponds... Nowhere near bottom 5 in my opinion.
- The Curse of Utter Boredom... I mean the Blackspot! I like Amy with a sword as much as anyone else, but it's not enough to keep me awake. I agree with this one.
- The Idiot's Lantern : Deserves to be here.
- Daleks in Manhattan/Evolution of the Daleks : a lot of interesting ideas here, but the execution is painful... It's not in my bottom 10, but I understand why it's here.
- Night Terrors : I like it.....
- The Lazarus Experiment : 42 minutes of bad CGI running down corridors. Deserves to be lower.
- The Long Game : it's not great, by far Eccleston's least good story but it's nothing shameful though, I don't know what it's doing here.
Good. Fine. Whatever. WHEN DO YOU GET THE LICENCE FOR NUWHO?

@Benvenfold Yes. Yes. Yes. and Yes again.
5 days, 20 hours ago on Your Top 20 TV Stories of the Decade
@Edoe @Baker Street has been a fan for 10 YEARS! Amy's Choice : 96th....
If I can suggest a few stories for NuWho fans:
- Enemy of the World : Troughton plays both the Doctor and the villain who happens to look just like him. Fast-paced with quite a lot of action, I think it's perfect for new audiences.
- The Invasion : The missing episodes have been animated so you don't have to listen to retcon. If you didn't like the series 8 finale, this might just be for you! (or if you did like the series finale, it might still be for you)
- The Tomb of the Cybermen : It's Matt Smith's favorite episode. It does belong to its time though, SJWs might have a heart attack watching it. Be warned.
Great article ! I truly love Troughton's Doctor, one of the greatest along Tom Baker and Matt Smith in my opinion.

How surprising! Did not see that coming. At all. Color me shocked.
Anyway, it's Day of the Doctor for me. Sally Sparrow VS. 13 Doctors... I like Sally a lot, but it's still a ridiculously easy choice.

Aww :( This news made me a bit sad... I wish he was still with us. What a brilliant Doctor he was!

I hate you so, so much.
Human Nature/Family of Blood and The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon. My soul is broken.

@Polyphase I voted against all those episodes *hide*

Although I think The Day of the Doctor is indeed the superior episode, I'm voting for the Series 8 finale, as it deserved better than facing TDOTD.

Listen, easily. I just can't understand Mummy's popularity. It's bland and boring with the most underwhelming deaths ever put on screen.
I would have ranked Let's be Heroes a bit higher. It's just so catchy, it makes me want to dress like a princess and fight with a knight's sword at the same time. Just makes everything feels better.

@DaftDalek is excited for Blade Runner 2 @Clara Bosswald I think it's a Stolen Earth/Journey's End kind of story. Some people really, really hate it, but the quiet majority loves it.
2 weeks ago on Revival Face-Off: Round #9
@DaftDalek is excited for Blade Runner 2 Maybe one of Moffat's episodes. Name of the Doctor or more likely, Asylum of the Daleks.
@SirTrey @Hirmien I'd give Karen Gillan's best performance to Girl Who Waited.
@MrRazza has always wanted to ram something @DWTV is No Thrills DWTV Oh boy, Listen vs Day of the Doctor.....
@Hirmien Alright, Alright, you got me. I'm voting AGMGTW. Please forgive me Series 6 opener :(
@DWTV is No Thrills DWTV I'm shaking.
Today on DoctorWhoTV, "Which one of your legs do you prefer?"
I hate you.

@MikkoKivisto @Clara Bosswald It's a myth. If she wants to meet Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, it makes sense, if she wants to meet Sherlock, it doesn't. Robin Hood is the kind of characterAmy would have loved to meet. Fairy tale kind of hero. Clara is a fan of Marcus Aurelius, she's a lot more down to Earth. It didn't fit her character.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Mark Gatiss Penning “Scary” Series 9 Episode
Please, tell me this is the Jane Austen episode. PLEASE. Robin Hood didn't make any sense for Clara. I don't believe that English-teacher-Clara would rather meet Robin Hood than Jane Austen. Please tell me we're getting Clara Oswald and Jane Austen fighting monsters. Come on, Mark!
@Malohkeh will sell soul for Big Finish CDs @Clara Bosswald I don't know what to do. Eleventh Hour is perfect. The Pandorica Opens is perfect. The Big Bang is perfect. Why is my life so painful

Easiest. Poll. Ever. You're getting soft DWTV (although I fear what you've got in store for the Moffat era...). Human Nature / Family of Blood, hands down.
