    My friend said there thinking of doing a 1st ever doctor who Easter episode and i’m thinking since the next episode is called Magicians Apprentice and magicians tend to use rabbits and rabbits are also to do with easter. If that make sense? so it could be at easter?

    Personally I think the Christmas Special stretched itself a bit too thin. The “Dream within a Dream” concept was good, but frankly it iterated itself a few too many times and became less credible. The last one with Clara was frankly unnecessary (although that may stem from my personal dislike of Clara). Overall I think that is the problem with this series, it was stretched too thin. The fact it was mostly written by guests writers was probably the cause of that… Frankly this series was rather on the dull side and I have high hopes for Series 9 to pick where 8 should have.

    There is an awful lot of bad feeling about Series 8, all of which is justified… We were promised so much but given do little? Why? What was the plan? Was there a plan? Capaldi is an excellent actor, Jenna Coleman was more than capable with Matt Smith… On the whole, the last series was disappointing, with a few nuggets of gold (Mummy on the Orient Express, for example). Last Christmas surprised me because I had grave doubts about Doctor Who meets Father Christmas. In fact I was very pleasantly surprised…. I thought it was a very clever story, well played and bearing some of Moffat’s signature twists… Excellent, I thought. Sadly, it also illustrates how wanting the series itself was. We, Doctor Who’s loyal fan base, deserve more, the actors and actresses deserve better writing and the reputation of over fifty years of Doctor Who should not be tarnished by inadequacy…. There must be a consistency of excellence, otherwise we will find ourselves repeating the apocalyptic times that nearly ended Doctor Who back in the ’80s. Moffat needs either to step up or step off.

    as many of you i have been a doctor who fan since it first began and have to say have seen nearly all the incarnations of the doctor but this one has to be the worst one i have seen and im not saying Peter Capaldi is a bad actor as i have like many of the things he’s acted in before this and as for this series its been the worst to watch and there was not one point in the entire series did it seem like i was watching doctor who and as for the christmas special “REALLY” it was pointless i didnt get the story was there a story to it but then again it was like many of the other episodes from last year pointless with no proper stories to them so like alot of you doctor who fans yes im very disappointed with what they have done with this doctor but many younger and new viewers will like him but its also down to who writes this show too and right now they aint doing very good job in my opinion but thats my opinion and they need to really really step it up and if they going to keep capaldi then they need to change the way he portrays the doctor and change his wardrobe too cos its really needs to change as well

    Last Christmas is easily my favourite, though it may take a off alien and inception a bit, it has the perfect balance of humour and darkness, which is needed for a Christmas special. The cast were great especially Nick Frost as Santa – I’d give this a well deserved 8/10!

    Ah but he`s been known in the passing of the centuries and regenerations to have problems with his long term memory before things come back to him.Imagine having his lifespan and the things the conscious mind could forget as well as remember.
