In the terms of bringing back the Master, its Utopia. It was a complete shock with Derek Jacobi giving a masterful and scary performance with proper menace that wasn't unintentionally hilarious. The cliffhanger is one of the best in Who, until they ruining it by starting the next episode with them in Cardiff. In terms of the episode, i'll have to go with Dark Water. Other than the Master, Utopia is a pretty average episode with the Futurekind in particular being generic and dull and it doesn't use the end of the universe setting as well as it could. Also why couldn't the Doctor just take Yana in the Tardis once he'd pressed

@The Finn @Malohkeh It had the light bulb flicker arc. I loved the resolution for that arc

@LaraHarris This really isn't a big deal. According to Neil Gaiman: ("Pull to Open" obviously refers to the phone hatch, yes. But Idris was right: It IS an instruction, and Police Box doors did open outwards). In other words he's saying that while the instuction on Police Boxes is referring to the hatch, The TARDIS meant it as an instruction to The Doctor. It really is a minor issue so i'm not sure why it ruined the episode for you. I guess a small problem to one person can be a huge one to someone else.

Why do people keep saying Time-Lady? It's such a horrible term IMO. Every time I hear it I can't help thinking of Little Britain. Romana refers to herself as a Timelord in The Pirate Planet and as far as I know the term Time-Lady was only mentioned once. There's no need to segregate the male and female Timelords by giving them different titles.

Personally I thought the Bad Wolf bay scene undermined the the much more powerful scene earlier when Rose got taken to the parallel world. That scene said everything that needed to be said, making the Bad Wolf Bay scene just a reason to give fans unnecessary (IMO) closure. It would have been much more heartbreaking to simply separate them without the chance to say goodbye rather the less powerful tear-filled goodbye we got. A better contender for best scene would have been The Doctor's goodbye to Susan from The Daleks Invasion of Earth.

Doctor Who had female fans long before Tennant and Smith, so I'm not sure what he meant by that. Maybe he meant there are more, but that also true about male fans. He's right about it being time for an older actor though. Not that I had a problem with Smith and Tennant (Smith's my favourite), but this a show of change and the time was right.
