Doctor Who

Yeah, and the plot twist at the end was really fun to watch. This guy is right behind David Tennant as my favourite Doctor already, and he could surpass him obviously until I watch the whole season and more if he's consistently this good.

I think it helps that he's older. I'd always hoped they'd give us an older Doctor again and well, here he is.

I'm bumping this but whatever. This episode was just exactly what I thought it'd be, can't wait to see what happens now that you know what is back.

Oh yeah the episode was, bloody strange and that's what I love, it was the kinda crap Moffat is strong at. also it's back, I will admit, I kinda squealed when i knew what had happened.

First Clara gone and now Gallifrey is back, must be my birthday

 

 

Capaldi once again performing an acting masterclass, I thought that speech in the Zygon episode was good. This was a one man show episode, if the acting from the Doctor was not top notch it would have failed miserably, I like Smith but he would have made this episode awful.

I don't think any other Doctor could have pulled this off quite as well, and I include my favourite Doctor in that (Eccleston). Keep this up Capaldi and you will take that crown, you're level with Tennant now, dangerously close.

I'm actually wondering, most actors who've played him in the revived series have only been in the role for three season. And this is Capaldi's second season. I'd really want him to stay for another couple because let's be honest, he's quite possibly the best Doctor as far as the depth of his character goes.

 

Uou can tell that Oscar he has wasn't for nothing even though he got it as a director, which is something that sort of moved to Who, he's actually working with the producers quite a lot on developing it, especially in this episode where he did sketches and such.

I think he deserves an oscar for playing Malcolm Tucker alone, he was so funny and witty that I haven't seen a good TV character been done like that in ages.

He is going to be perfect director in terms of action sequences, but other than that, I don't know. I'll wait and see what he can do but considering it is someone like Jackson, I'm fine with it.

Sorry for the double post, the BBC released some images from the finale. Look familiar?

I finally binged through the final episodes of the season, so I could get to the Christmas special.

 

I really liked it. It wasn't about some adventure or Daleks or Cybermen. It was about the Doctor and Clara coming to terms with who they are, and who they are to each other. The ending was surprisingly satisfying.

 

The Christmas special was excellent as well. They've really been nailing these personal stories for the Doctor, exploring him in ways I'm not sure they ever have. But probably my favorite moment was the Doctor giving the proper reaction to finding out the Tardis is 'bigger on the inside'. It was an expertly done gag.

Personally I think Heaven Sent was possibly the best episode this show has ever seen. It's not just a great Who episode but even taken as a TV episode in general it's brilliantly executed because of Moffat's writing and Capaldi's one man show.

Just watched the Christmas special on BBCiPlayer, it was amazing. Beautiful ending. Also, is this the last time we ever see River? Apparently, the Doctor knows that 1 night in delirium = 24 normal years, but does that mean 24 years just went past if they spent the night?

I think they left River in a way that is ambiguous to if she will appear again. It's a perfect ending. If we never see her again, it'll make sense. If we do see her again, it'll make sense.

Pretty much, they did have a way for River to return since The Name of the Doctor when the "ghost" of River from the Library was with them on Trenzalore. The idea is that her consciousness was saved on to the TARDIS matrix as well, so in theory it could be uploaded in a new body. But I doubt they'll use her again, especially seeing as season 10 seems to be Moffat and Capaldi's final, unfortunately. They really should give Capaldi another couple of seasons.

Damn, wtf? Capaldi's last season is 10? f*ck. I was beginning to grow fond of him even more, I hope he absolutely blitzes the role in his final season then, because so far Tennant is still my favourite, Capaldi is coming very close.

I'm glad they have finally rounded off River's story, well it seems they have. After this I just had to rewatch the library episodes where she first appears.

 

Is Moffat leaving after season 10 as well? Personally I only see Capaldi leaving if Moffat does, or if he feels he is 'too old.' Capaldi, unlike Tennant and Smith is not launching his career or kick-starting his career into the mainstream with this, he has already had aan llustrious career, hell he even has an Oscar (for directing, but still) Plus he is a massive Doctor Who fan, so this is a passion project.

 

I could see him succeeding Moffat as the show-runner when it comes time for him to regenerate into *insert British actor/actress here*

From what I've read he'd like to do something else and he's got a boatload of injuries, recently got knee surgery. I think that if they get a showrunner who's never had anything to do with the show they run into the problem of screwing up Capaldi's Doctor. Since the revival no showrunner has had to inherit a Doctor from his predecessor.

 

I'd like to see Capaldi at least do another two seasons, he's honestly the best since they brought it back, to hell with Tennant.

I'd say Capaldi is the best actor to be the doctor, my favourite it still Eccleston but Capaldi is sneaking in behind and honestly another season like 9 and he'll batter the 9th doctor. Right now I rate him level with Tennant at tied 2nd

Smith is like 6th.

 

I want to see Capaldi run as long as Tom Baker.

Hey, guys. Doctor Who is back. Capaldi doing one more season.

 

I missed the first four episodes, then recorded 5-7 on my DVR, and plan to binge them all today.

 

A couple minutes in, and I smiled at the pictures of River and Susan on the Doctor's desk.

I just finished the last episode. That sh*t got me really f*cked up. I sorta can't wait for the Christmas episode.

Yeah. Not really a action packed finale, but it was thoughtful. Bill as a Cyberman was heartbreaking. Missy vs The Master was entertaining. Nardole's goodbye was perfect.

 

So, is David Bradley playing the first Doctor?

Yep, not exactly surprised seeing as he was in this.

It'll be a great finale for Capaldi, and I have the feeling that he's probably going to be a woman this time around.

He looks a lot like Hartnell.

And acts like Richard Hurndall's Doctor. Bradley is a hell of an actor, can't wait to see him again in The Strain.

Finally got round to catching up last night and I gotta say, from the early previews of the series I wasn't looking forward to series 10 much, I thought Bill looked annoying and that Nardole looked like a typical Matt Lucas character, but I genuinely think in terms of lead characters that series 10 was the the strongest it's ever been for Nu-Who. All four of them (including Missy) were great. Surprisingly strong season overall, not only am I really going to miss Capaldi when he goes but - and I can't believe I'm saying this - I hope the finale wasn't the last we see of Matt Lucas in Doctor Who.

 

It'll be interesting to see who they get for the next Doctor, I second the thought that they'll go for a woman. I think Missy has been such a massive success for them that they'll have a lot more faith in the idea.
