    Evidence that Doctor Who novelty songs are the best novelty songs:



    Sure, it may sound like some kind of bizarre Beatles cover band, but it's actually Frazer Hines singing about time travel and love he is unable to escape.

    Cy turned out to be much better in person.

    I remember back around Night of the Doctor, people were all crazy about wanting Paul McGann to get his own show as a spinoff so we could see more of him as the Doctor. Online petitions and everything (which never really amount to anything, but in this case McGann himself actually signed it if I remember correctly). I vaguely recall there being rumors that it was something BBC was going to take into consideration, but I guess nothing ever came of it?

    I'd still totally be down for that.

    Just schedule them to air in different parts of the year so they aren't in competition with each other in any way (ie. Capaldi in "Doctor Who" in the fall and McGann in "Time War" or whatever in the Spring).

    Also, since Moffat has a lot of his plate, maybe let someone else run it instead?

    Hard to say. The last few years' boxsets have included the previous year's christmas special, but then Matt Smith had to go and regenerate on his last special so that then became a standalone release and the Season 8 box set has no Christmas special and now my left arm twitches every time I look at my collection.

    Killing Osgood just feels really fucking mean-spirited, from a writing standpoint

    Edit
    AND KATE
    Fuck you, Stephen
    whatshername has been pretty coy about being on the show next season.

    Right but I'm talking about
    Osgood, Kate's assistant
    I think she's a fun character and there wasn't any purpose served by having the Master disintegrate her
    Moffat did have a purpose in mind with Osgood's death.
    One thing I was very determined about was that the Master/Missy would have to kill somebody we liked in the most cruel, heartless and terrible way to absolutely say that this person is shockingly evil. Osgood was the one we flung on the fire to make the Master burn brighter.

    I don't think it was a particularly good reason, though.

    See, I wouldn't have minded
    Osgood's death if it had been interesting, but what we got was pure dreck. You don't build up a character as being smart and genre savvy, and then have them fall for nonsense like "come closer so I can whisper secrets to you". And that's not even counting the two guards whose sole duty was to watch Missy, and yet somehow didn't notice her freeing herself.

    I missed the holiday Dr Who thread. :(

    I finally got around to watching the Christmas special and I thought it needed...
    ...a few more twist endings

    For all we know, it could still be a dream. Everything in the show, from this point forward, could be The Doctor or Clara's dream.
    I don't actually think this is the case, and if they ever played that card it'd be incredibly stupid, but I could see it.

  • ButlerButler 89 episodes or bust Registered User regular
    I don't think so. The Doctor pointed out that the presence of a mild "ice-cream headache" was a giveaway that it was a dream, if you looked for it.

    The key there is "if you looked for it." The Doctor wanted Clara to still be okay bad enough, he could be purposely ignoring that headache. It could be a runner throughout the series, like in Season 4, when people kept warning Donna about something being on her back.

    I love the dynamic between Clara and Twelve and was really disappointed when they seemed to be abandoning it so soon.

    Also I have the biggest crush on Jenna Coleman, but that has nothing to do with it, I swear.

    One thing about the christmas special. Did they straight up have a little girl playing Claras body double at the end?

    She's not that short.

    What part at the end, exactly? Doesn't look short to me at the actual end scene at any point. She was sitting down, maybe that was it?

    I'm not against her coming back, but it does seem odd to me that they've written two or three different ending stories for her and yet she still keeps coming back. It's like they can't make up their minds.

    Finally figured it out, with some help from a Doctor Who fan forum. The "do math to clear your mind" is a callback to The Claws Of Axos, a Third Doctor story from 1971, episode four to be precise.

    Now I can sleep again!

    Well, it may also just be the fact it's a common idea to block out thoughts and she's a teacher. But good investigation!

    This was my hope all through the whole episode. It sounds terrible, but
    I was actually waiting for Clara to suicide by braincrab and go off into a lovely Danny Pink dream world to make room for Shona.

    They never explained it when the Doctor regenerated into a face that looked exactly like that timelord head of security back on Galifrey. Just go with it.

    For real though, I thought the Doctor's apprehension about Twelve's face was because
    There's a very brief shot of Capaldi's eyes in the Day of the Doctor at the end there when they're doing their time mojo to Gallifrey, so spoilers for the Doctor I guess.

    Anyone ever heard of an tabletop RPG for Doctor Who before subtitled Adventures In Time And Space? From what I've found of it so far, it's set up so if one of your players wants to play the Doctor , he or she can (the core rulebook even apparently having a sidebar-box dealing with more then one player wanting to be the Doctor) as well as established or original Companions. Looks like there's also supplemental books based on the various Doctor eras and how to use the stories from the show to create campaigns based on them.
