I absolutely loved the 50th aniversity special. I haven't made up my mind on on the Xmas special yet.


So, what are the rumores, when do we get the next season?

I was confused, bored and not much entertained. I was quite happy whenever he tried to send Clara away and then annoyed when she kept coming back.

I was bored too, until the last five minutes which were excellent! If only the whole thing had been like that...

I thought we'd all learned the lesson that Doctor Who episodes which try to span more than the period of about a week are pants, but apparently nor all of us were paying attention Razz

It wasn't a great idea to start with, but stringing the plot out over 300+ years just meant we didn't get to stop to enjoy it.

I feel like the makers thought we'd all be far more into it. Like the touching death of cyber-head, which I felt nothing about because we'd just met, but which was written and played and scored as if it was the death of the Doctor himself.

Watched it on BBC America. At every commercial break there was an ad for some chocolate that had a gold shimmer that looked like it was regenerating. 'Hubby' is convinced that the chocolate has something to do with the show.

I didn't care much for the episode. There were a few moments of, "Huh," but that's all they were - no exclamation points after the "Huh"s even. Then again, I didn't particularly care for David Tennant's victory lap around time when it was his turn to go. I barely remember when Tom Baker and Peter Davison left, but I don't recall all the brouhaha; it just seemed part of the storyline.

I mainly spent the episode waiting for Peter Capaldi to appear. I love Peter Capaldi. Have I mentioned I love Peter Capaldi?

Of the 3 deaths I've been through, Nine's still touches me the most. Certainly his short run is part of that, but it's also because they didn't draw it out ridiculously. Still, Smith's was less overindulgent than Tennant's, so I'm thankful for that.

I'm looking forward to Capaldi, but I wish the showrunner had regenerated, too. Moffat's been a pretty big disappointment for me, doubly so because he'd been one of my favorite writers from the first 3 seasons.

As for the War Doctor, I think the concept of an unknown Doctor in the sequence is kind of exciting. (And Hurt was pretty awsome.) But the special didn't do much of anything interesting with him, and I don't see the point of "We won't call him The Doctor or give him a number", since the coolest thing about the concept is that you can pull this sort of twist precisely because they don't refer to their numbers and we never saw 8 go to 9. It's a great opportunity to slip in a new Doctor, force us all to renumber, and blow the fandom's mind. Trying to make him a Doctor who sort of doesn't count as a Doctor just undercuts the whole premise. If you're gonna play with the canon like that, you might as well go all the way.

I was never keen on the War Doctor concept anyway. Nothing to stop them doing it again at another time just to do something stupid.

I didn't mind the Xmas special but yeah, it was a bit rough around the edges. But if we gauge it among Who's Christmas specials, it was definitely the best since The Parting of the Ways. All of Tennant's were dreadful.

But the arrival of Capaldi is exciting. I'm still hoping Moffat does well like his earlier two seasons, but yeah, I think they should start looking for a new showrunner. Maybe the fact that it's no longer the 50th Anniversary will let him a bit more freedom, mind.

I disagree that there's nothing to stop them doing it again... that was the only regeneration that was never explicitly shown, so it seems like the only window for them to add an incarnation.
