I absolutely adore Donna, however I feel like her story is over. That being said I wouldn't mind a cameo at some point in the future, though one that fits the story/themes as opposed to giving her a cameo just for the sake of having her cameo. Maybe for an anniversary, perhaps.

I love Planet of the Ood. The story behind the Ood is heartbreaking. If Keith Temple were to come back I wonder whether he'd continue with more themes and ideas concerning morality or whether he'd write something different.

Well, this has told us a lot this has...


Last night I actually thought up something. Maybe in order to communicate the three of them have to dream, but unlike in Amy's Choice they know they're dreaming. Maybe Santa has become stuck in a dream and The Doctor and Clara have to alternate between both reality and the dream in order to stop themselves and others from dying in reality and somehow helping Santa to wake himself up, so he can help save the Earth. Hmm, still too similar to Amy's Choice...


In terms of Clara... I think she's leaving...*sobs*.


If she is... I'll cry... sadness...

If she isn't... I'll cry... relief and joy...


Well, Moffat appears to have ruined my Christmas already and it's not even December yet. He must love tears. *Cue evil laugh*

Though Ecclestone was my first Doctor and I've been a fan ever since, Matt will always be my Doctor, he was the Doctor when I became a mega-obsessed Whovian. He's the one I hold a special place in my heart and I was distraught when he left. But the question seems to be asking for both first and my Doctor.There may need to be a slight clarification.

I can't quite believe it's been a year ago since I was on a Geography trip with school and being both incredibly excited and anxious about watching the 50th, as not many others seemed to understand how much it meant to me. I was unbelievably relieved when it was confirmed I'd be able to watch it (Thank, the Holy Mother of Rassilons's Fez!!!) and I remember doing some orienteering in the dark outside, constantly checking to see what time it was and then running in 10 -15 minutes early.

Personally, I'm going to keep my theory and just see what happens. I'd really love it if she were staying but I don't think she is, and it'd probably mean that she'd die at the end since she would have had so many chances to leave (It'd fit her character to die but I don't know how I'd cope). 


Then there's Orson. There have been so many hints this series about babies etc that I just feel it's leading somewhere and I really don't like the idea of time and his existence being rewritten. If another reason was given then I'd love Clara to be in Series 9. But sadly I just don't see it happening. There's every chance that my 'findings' are just red herrings, however I'm sticking with my theory until it is either proved or disproved at Christmas.

Poor Wedding. In fact poor Series 6. Neither seem to be liked very much :( This series I will always hold dear to me as it was the series where I became a self-proclaimed mega-obsessed Whovian. I was already a fan of it prior to 2011, definitely (I'd seen it from Rose), however there was just a difference, it's a bit difficult to explain really. Part of it was due to age, I think (11/12, depending on the episode) and the way I perceived it. But even without the nostalgia, the series and this finale, I feel, are highly underrated. In fact, before Atlantis starts I'm going to watch Wedding, I think.

@Clara Who  @The Lazy Cat's Soufflé Was too Beautiful to Live  This might be linked in with the idea of dreams, perhaps? Or maybe she's not actually that far along. The latest she could have been at the end of Death in Heaven is around 2 weeks. Lets say that 3 months have passed since she stopped travelling (and I don't think there was any indication of time of year in that episode). She may not be showing yet and it would be enough time for her to be surprised when meeting The Doctor again.

Personally, The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang is by far the best finale of New Who. Fantastic speeches, fantastic use of an ontological paradox (love 'em) and that cliffhanger! Not the most shocking/unexpected (that would go to The Almost People) but certainly the best of New Who when it comes to "how on Earth are they going to get out of this?".

Didn't think he was 55 though. I had the privilege of meeting him at a convention (specifically my very first) and at one point we're were stood waiting at the side for someone, when he walked past me, my sister and my best friend and stuck his tongue out at us! That day was all very surreal.

I'd like to have two unrelated companions, with one perhaps being human (maybe from the past) and the other being an alien. It could be quite an intriguing dynamic especially with Twelve's personality, if it turns out that Clara is leaving before Series 9. If the scenario was done right, maybe it could be the alien that would be the more relatable one of the two, somehow. Whatever happens, I think it'd be nice if there's a bit more variety with regards to the companions, maybe a situation we either haven't had for a while or haven't ever had.

Exactly. The show is doing fine. One thing that also occurs with shows like Doctor Who is that people in the future may find and watch the show during Series 'X' and then go back and rewatch previous series. When you think about all the other factors as well; worldwide ratings, illegal downloads and the aforementioned new fans rewatching... that's a lot of people.

@The Lazy Cat Has Attack Eyebrows  Yay! Detective Inspector MetamorphmagusWho at your service.


I can, though, understand how you don't think it would fit Clara's character. But personally I think it fits in with the (very) slight theme that was in the finale of ordinary events occurring, those things that happen every day in life (Danny being killed by a car for instance as opposed to an alien invasion).

@The Lazy Cat Has Attack Eyebrows  Thanks. I just think that there needs to be some sort of clarification when it comes to Orson. There are also tonnes of references/themes/hints to birth, babies and descendants that I feel it's leading up to something. Seriously, I've got a list. I think I'm the Orson Detective, theorising that he still exists with potential foreshadowing.

@The Lazy Cat Has Attack Eyebrows  If Orson is a time traveller, one of the first if I recall,  I'd assume he'd have been taught about the dangers of time travel and the effects he'd have on time, regardless of which way he's travelling. Maybe Orson got Clara's lying abilities and, upon realising who they were, decided to lie about if he knew her or not. But he can't help himself, anyway and gives her 'hints'.

Wow... that's a lot of comments.


After watching it again I think that it's better than I thought it was when I first saw it but Dark Water, I feel, is still the better part. Michelle Gomez was a fantastic Master and I hope to see her again. "Oh, go on crack a smile. I want to see if your eyebrows drop off" was hilarious! But for the most part it was very dark and emotional, I was crying through various moments. I also don't think we've seen the last of Clara as I think she'll be at least in the Xmas Special but I highly doubt she'll be in Series 9. Also might as well:
