    Timey Wimey: Doctor Who discussion thread

    Seeing as there is no discussion thread for the hit science fiction series, Doctor Who, I am starting one here.

    I'll begin by asking who has watched the most recent Doctor Who episode, 'Under the Lake', and what were your thoughts on it? Personally, I thought it was an excellent episode and it shows that Doctor Who is returning to it's best after the shocking series of 2014.

    Peter Capaldi is awesome in both roles. He pretty much does the same character for everything he does however.

    The whole "Doctor dying" thing has been overdone to the point of being comparable to Nintendo's releases of the New Super Mario Bros. series.
    However, I was genuinely surprised this time, and there was no hint of a "fated prophecy" of the Doctor's death this time, so I think it's acceptable this time around.

    We all know that he isn't going to die however as the BBC wouldn't end the little moneymaker which is Doctor Who now.

    Love Dr Who so much. Under the Lake was creepy and I'm looking forward to the next episode but I hope this whole season isn't a bunch of double episodes. Moffat is a good showrunner but sometimes lets his ego get in the way and goes a little OTT with some of the concepts.

    Still pissed off about Danny Pink.

    The Master coming back as Missy is SO SO GOOD. The character of Missy being equal parts awful, victorian grandmother, and pure psycho is great, and the whole best friend/arch enemy dynamic is brilliantly played between them in a way I don't think would have worked if you had a younger actor doing the role.


    No one is going to give you the education you need to overthrow them.

    Russel T Davies was more of a pure sci-fi writer (although technically, Doctor Who does fit into the genre of science fantasy) whereas Mofffat is more apt to experiment with more fantasy elements (stuff which isn't possible in the future).

    The trees episode from last season was appalling in the fact that it made little sense and is impossible in the first place.

    The last two (the Girl that Died and the Woman that Lived) were cheesey although they were very enjoyable.

    Re: Timey Wimey: Doctor Who discussion thread

    Omg guys! So the picture with Capaldi was so cool, he was sooo nice (obviously) haha and you had like 20 seconds to have a convo with him after the picture and the line wasn't that long, it was very well organised. There was a Q&A panel with him, Moffat and Ingrid Oliver but it was kind of annoying because the people walking around the crowd with mics only let mainly kids ask questions so they asked a lot of boring questions. One person asked when Susan/Ian/Cpt Jack/other faves would come back and Moffat gave his usual 'when the story is right' answer. There was other things to do around the hall in between those sessions, like they had a display with heaps of costumes from the show, Clara's bedroom set, a fake snow machine to take photos under, a giant lego TARDIS and a few monsters. Pictures are all on the bf's camera so I'll share some later tonight.

    That does sound good. Did you watch the latest episode of Doctor Who, Face the Raven?

    Yeah I saw the little teaser for it, he looks alone and lost with some random thing chasing him.

    Spoiler (rollover to view):
    Although Amy was always my fave companion, Clara had really grown on me so I'm super sad But she was the longest running companion in the reboot so I guess it was inevitable. I have a theory that she'll be returning in the season finale maybe as a different version.

    But omg I can't wait for River to return at Christmas!

    I must be one of the few Whovians that finds River to be annoying and she seems fake as well.

    Oh I never got that impression, but I feel like her character is sort of convoluted as well. Like if you try and map out her entire life year by year it gets kind of weird.... like they kidnapped her then raised her in Florida? Then let her run off on her own (as Mels) and then kill the Doctor, god knows how many years later? I think in trying to make her so complex and fascinating they kind of overdid it, but I love her so I overlook it lol.

    Spoiler (rollover to view):
    Similarly, it would have been so easy for them to make Clara's death so massive and make it this big plotline with the Impossible Girl and stuff - so I really like how her end was small and personal. Although tbh I wish Rigsy was in real danger because I don't like that she died for nothing at all, it would've been better if she had at least died to save a father. For me, at least lol.
