    Just how domesticated is the new series. The doctor is powerful isn’t he yet he looks like he taking his orders from Clara.I hoped for so much from this series and I love Peter but the series is becoming a bit twee and it is concentrating on the relationship. It is looking all a bit naff.

    I generally liked episode However Clara
    Strutting around thinking she The doctor
    was ludicrous. Both Rose and Donna
    Became temporary Time Lords by
    absorbing the full power Of the
    Time Vortex. Clara had no power at
    all. Being clever doesn’t make you
    a Time Lord.

    If you look behind Missy, there is windows that to me resemble the old Tear Drop Cyberman eyes.

    Is she perhaps, inside an older version of a Cyberman or onboard a Cyber ship…

    at last a semi decent story/episode,felt like a good 9th or 10th doctor episode with it been set in modern day and on earth.still missing the dr theme music and sadly cant take to this doctor at all,trying to run round the tardis was laughable,thought he was going to fall over.theres no character to him at all.just watched a couple of 11th doc episodes,i wish matt hadn’t finished when he did,he must of known it was getting tired with moff in charge.

    Methinks some of you try to look into things too deeply. It reminds me of when I studied A level English lit and am convinced we were being encouraged to read things into some works of lit which weren,t written in by the author. In truth you could do the same with Noddy

    Your not the only one. We’ve all thought it looked like the Pandorica.

    Actually, it’s the 3rd time the Tardis has shrunk.

    1)Planet of the Giants.

    Don’t worry, I forgot it shrunk in a William Hartnell story, not that I’ve seen it which I haven’t, it’s just that I learned the Tardis had shrunk in an early 1960’s adventure but forgot myself so I too thought she first shrunk in Logopolis just as you thought.

    i have three serious passions in my life
    1. doctor who
    2. sunderland a.f.c Season ticket holder (sigh)
    3. British Sitcoms.

    My absolute dream is for steve pemberton & reece sheersmith to write a doctor who episode together……… my god they would take the doctor to a dark place

    Loved Flatline. It’s just getting better and better with each episode.
    I thought that the Tardis’ cube actually looked like the Pandorica. Is that a coincidence?

    ‘out of the series’ was how the sentence was supposed to finish 🙂

    Well said!!!

    Something about the first sentence is interesting. I could almost see this plot thread playing out. Of course if Clara does turn out to be the Doctor, sadly I think it could be a natural conclusion to my association with the series after 35 years.
