MetamorphmagusWho: Cheering for Series 9
There's been so much fandom news, lately. I am hyped. Also apparently I'm the 3rd Most Generous Voter in the Rank the Revival polls... I'm quite happy about that.
@TheTimeTraveller is excited for series 9 @MetamorphmagusWho: Cheering for Series 9 @TheOncomingHurricane I can't think of a dream that wasn't strange. Trouble is I can't remember some of 'em. A weird non-Doctor Who one had me, I think, battling Darth Vader underwater. A lot feature water/aquariums... or rollercoasters that wouldn't ever pass real life safety regulations.

@TheOncomingHurricane One of the Weeping Angel dreams had me in an area like the fairground place in Pinocchio (though it didn't look like that, but I knew in the dream that that was what it was) and there was a window high above. I flew up to this window and saw the blurry image of a weeping angel. It then moved out of a door as I realised that it was making it's way downstairs. I went back down to ground level, terrified and... didn't move away for some reason.
I also remember one where a Slitheen was chasing me in this underground area and then I turned around at one point to find it had disappeared into thin air. I know I have a lot more DW dreams but a lot of the time I don't remember much about them.

@TheOncomingHurricane God, I love dreams. They're so random.
5 hours, 50 minutes ago on Doctor Who Future in Doubt After Capaldi ‘Fracas’
@TheOncomingHurricane The majority of mine always seem to feature the weeping angels...
Though I had one where me and a bunch of my schoolmates slept in the TARDIS, which looked from the inside like a big, posh mansion and there was this creature that stalked the corridors.

@TheOncomingHurricane You dreamt that Moffat was in a spacesuit? You weren't in Utah by any chance were you? Wait that would make him River, ok, no, erm were you at the end of the universe? No, that's Orson. Wait what colour? (What? All the good questions were taken.)

@Edoe You know if the multiverse really does have an infinite amount of parallel universes this mean that somewhere this actually happens/ed. XD

@TheOncomingHurricane Jeremy Clarkson as The Doctor and Zayn Malik as his companion, maybe... too ghastly to contemplate.

Ah, I was wondering what piece of 'news' it would be this year.
'Capaldi is alleged to have punched a Dalek right in the eyestalk during an angry outburst in-between filming.'
In other breaking news: Punch Out Wii U confirmed at Nintendo Direct with Peter Capaldi vs. Jeremy Clarkson.

Also, I'll stick by your side The Curse of the Black Spot.

Very interesting read Supermoff. I presume it must have took a while to figure all this out and so I applaud you for this effort. Amazing work.
"Now, which part of a double-parter is the better half? Part 1, or Part 2?"
The first thing that came into my head when I read this was "There's only one way to find out... FIGHT!"
@Notsosmartguy I've just watched her in Teens React to NES. She knew what Zelda was but not Metroid. Understandable.
2 days, 2 hours ago on Series 9: The Girl Who Died, and The Woman Who Lived
@Notsosmartguy Which video(s) was she in?
@TardisBoy is excited for Maisie Williams! Natalia Tena. I don't even watch GOT but I know she's in it and I would love it if she appeared in Doctor Who.
2 days, 3 hours ago on Series 9: The Girl Who Died, and The Woman Who Lived
@IrishPenmanship @DWTV - Barbarically Evil I would love to see the Shadow Proclamation again. Apparently in the original script for The Stolen Earth tons of law-abiding aliens would have been seen to be a part of the Prcolamation, from adult Adipose and Krillitanes to Vespiforms and Sycorax. Even Blon Fel-Fotch Passemeer-Day Slitheen was going to appear. Sadly though it was cut due to budget. I'd like something similar to that happening, but with added Moffat era aliens.
If the 'Horrible Histories star?!' bit comes across as slightly rude, as if I'm saying he isn't a Horrible Histories star, that wasn't my intention as he is. I've only just realised it might seem that way.
2 days, 4 hours ago on Series 9: The Girl Who Died, and The Woman Who Lived
Oh my stars, Series 9 news!!!!!
This is what's going on in my head at the moment:
-Haven't seen anything Maisie Williams has been in, though I do recognise her and this is still interesting.
-MATHIESON AND MOFFAT?! WHAT?! mof,mathi,episod,YAY! What?!
-The Girl Who Died... I.. have... What?!
-The Woman Who Lived. Hmm, what with the titles of these two episodes, I'm sensing this is linking in with Moffat's idea of having two parters that don't seem very linked in with each other, going so far that they're by different writers. That's the vibe I'm getting anyway. I might be completely wrong.
- I knew Rufus Hound was a big Whovian and I think I've seen him in a few things. Cool.
- Horrible Histories star?! I did see the Magna Carta special but it seemed like some of the actors had been cast because they resembled the original cast. Don't get me wrong they were still really good but I couldn't shake the idea off. Hopefully here Tom'll be able to show off his acting skills.
- The rest I don't recognise, but it's still great to have them.
Anyway, where was I... oh, yeah... WHAT?!
Well, this was certainly a very interesting read and I eagerly await Part 2. I'm also loving those graphs, though poor Series 6, you awesome, underrated beauty you (Though I will admit TRF/TAP is meh). I watched TCOTBS again today and I actually really enjoyed it.
2 days, 22 hours ago on Rank the Revival: A Numbery-Wumbery Breakdown (Part 1)
Wow... look at all those brilliant episodes... and those small few that I don't like as much.
There's a few I personally think should be higher (Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, The Power of Three and The Rings of Ahkaten), some lower (Both parts of The End of Time, The Stolen Earth/Journey's End) and I don't agree with the scores, but this has been a very interesting process and it's clear that every episode has both it's fans and it's 'dislikers'.

@TheOncomingHurricane @SirTrey @MetamorphmagusWho Having just quickly watched those first few minutes again... yeah, that was fairly rude of him to say the least.

@SirTrey @MetamorphmagusWho Oh, ok, interesting. I don't agree with any of those so I genuinely didn't know. I don't consider it great though but I do really enjoy it.
The Long Game = Understandable
The Lazarus Experiment = I really like this one. Genuine question, why is it so disliked?
Night Terrors = Really quite enjoy this, though I can acknowledge it has its problems
Daleks in Manhatten/Evolution if the Daleks = Understandable
The Idiot's Lantern = Understandable
The Curse of the Black Spot = Again, it has issues but I can't help but still enjoy it.
The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe = Understandable-ish
In The Forest of the Night = There are definitely things up with it, but personally I don't think it's any where near as bad as its reputation.
Love & Monsters = Definitely Agree. Though I admire the ideas of the tolerable first 30 minutes, a lot more, even if it doesn't save it.
Fear Her = Yes, Yes, Yes, completely agree. The only good thing it brought us was Kel.
Kel the Council man. I wonder why on Earth he hasn't come back yet, what with the immense amount of greatness he brought.
A great selection of episodes and in fact the only episodes I don't rate a 10/10 here are The Name of the Doctor and The Girl in the Fireplace (both are 9/10, though). There's a fair few 10/10 episodes that aren't here as well.

Rose is certainly a great episode. I can't remember much about my initial reaction to this episode on first broadcast, only that I was pretty confused (I might have asked my Dad about some stuff, The Doctor's backstory for instance) and that I was scared of the Autons and the 'burping bin'. But it evidently attracted my attention enough for me to watch the majority of the rest of the episodes in Series 1 and be scared of pretty much everything present in those.

Happy Tenth Anniversary New Who!!!!!!!
To think I first started watching in 2005 with no prior knowledge and then here I am 10 years later, as the fan I am today. It's influenced me as a person, I wouldn't be who I am today without it. Thanks New Who for getting me into this wonderful show. May you continue for many, many years to come.

Both brilliant, both masterpieces, but it's got to be The Day of the Doctor.

R.I.P Patrick Troughton. Though at the moment I've only seen one of his stories in full, The Invasion (which was brilliant), I can still see why he's so loved by the fandom. He was brilliant in it and I look forward to watching more with him as The Doctor.
6 days, 22 hours ago on Patrick Troughton’s Birthday
Blink and The Day of the Doctor, for me. It might seem clichéd but there's a reason they're so universally loved, in my opinion.
1 week ago on Revival Face-Off: Semi-Final #2
Right, after thinking about it it's going to have to be The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon. But The Eleventh Hour know that "I Really, really, really, really, really, really like (love) you".
Now I've got that guilty pleasure song stuck in my head. Wow, my taste in music varies...
1 week, 1 day ago on Revival Face-Off: Semi-Final #1
Or should I say it's actually more about there being very passionate Impossible Day of the Astronaut supporters (randomly felt like making that up) and very passionate Eleventh Hour supporters that is making us burst into quotes. I'm both, what now?
Okay, voted for Human Nature/The Family of Blood, pretty easy-ish, but...
The Eleventh Hour or The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon!!!!!!!!!!
*Tenth Doctor's voice* What? What?! WHAT?!!
(There seems to be a lot of (paraphrased) quotes occurring in the comments here (which is great), even more than usual. It must be this decision. It's too difficult for us not to burst out into quotes.)
@Mr. Eyebrows Mummy was up against Listen, so...
But Flatline is quite surprising.

Vincent and the Doctor
The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon
A great selection of masterpieces, though I'm quite surprised The Name of the Doctor won over Flatline. Interesting.
@the666thdoctor What's wrong with voting for popular episodes? Besides Doctor Who is of such a high quality that just because one episode is knocked out doesn't mean it's a bad episode, it's just that it garnered fewer votes. The amount of variety of individual commenters is what's so fascinating, anyway.
@Typo42 "Magic Carrots" Whilst I do think she loved The Doctor (or at least fancied him)she was definitely much more than that, a much more developed character, a much more relatable character, a much more brilliant companion.
1 week, 4 days ago on Why I Love Martha Jones
I too love Martha, in fact I actually much prefer her to Rose. She had to travel all around the Earth for an entire year knowing that her family was trapped on the Valiant in order to save the World. Her exit was also great for her character. She loved someone who didn't love her back and was treated slightly unfairly, so what did she do? She left, much to the surprise of The Doctor, to go on and live her life on Earth and fall in love with someone who loved her. Twice...
@supermoff is now a Maximoff @MetamorphmagusWho I'm really excited for her return, and if her performance is even half as good as it was in DW/DIH I'll be happy.
1 week, 4 days ago on Revival Face-Off: Round #12
@supermoff is now a Maximoff I re-watched DW/DIH a couple of weeks back and I think Missy is even better than I thought she was (which is saying a lot since I already loved her to begin with). She can go from being mysterious to bananas to serious to hilarious etc. She's great... even though she killed Osgood... and attempted to kill Kate...
If it was The Day of the Doctor vs. Dark Water it would be a much more difficult decision but since the latter is rightfully with 'Death in Heaven' (which is still an amazing episode), it has to be Day.
Sorry Mummy on the Orient Express, you're a masterpiece, but it has to be Listen. It could actually be my favourite episode of Doctor Who I've seen.
Also, has anyone else seen the Legs Nose Robinson (the same who did Hey Missy) Trock song based on Listen?:
I can't recall it being on one of the Weird and Wonderful's.

Great article. Each Series manages to give us some absolutely fantastic musical tracks, and Series 8 was no exception.

@The Finn is excited for audio Kate Stewart! @MetamorphmagusWho I'm actually really hoping for some more guest cast announcements soon. I have my list of 'People Who I Would Like To See In Doctor Who' ready.
Thank you very much BBC for this really insightful essay of information you've just given to us. We'll be able to speculate so much with it.
@The Lazy Cat @MetamorphmagusWho @russell t dalek I'm still hoping for a return of the soufflés. The Doctor after her death, walks into one of the kitchens and sees Clara's final attempt at a soufflé. It's successful. A note, attached to the side, informs him it's for him.
"Thank you, Doctor.
And Run, Run you clever boy... and remember"

@The Lazy Cat @russell t dalek It'd be nice to seem some more Clara continuity.
@The Lazy Cat @TardisBoy! I think that cliffhanger Moffat mentioned for Series 9 might have something to do with Clara, though her death I'd assume would be in the final episode.
@The Lazy Cat @ClaraOswald @Doctavarium *? (Stupid livefyre with your lack of edit button, despite the fact it's not a big issue missing a question mark.)
@The Lazy Cat @ClaraOswald @Doctavarium I've seen it! She is so cute. Have you seen that video where she gives Jenna another leaf as Clara had to give her's away.
