The Moff has spoken:


Dr Who: misquotes and misunderstandings. But I'm not being bounced into announcing the cool stuff before we're ready. Hush, and patience.


In Moff We Trust. Am I right?

Indeed, he hasn’t lead us astray so far, and I don’t believe he will

Moffat has kinda lost me this series. With seemingly killing Rory every other week (and then having Rory starting to make jokes about it) to that soap opera nonsense about River Song...


This better be good, Steven.

Soap opera? Maybe old school soap operas, but nowadays they are even crazier and more insane than you can imagine. It’s no wonder most of them are being cancelled.


I admit it is a little... eh, don’t have/forgot that word I would use to describe it, but the way it was set up made up for any “soap opera-ness."


Jolan Tru, may your day be filled with peace.

Anti-climactic? Have the internet came to that conclusion months ago!

Perhaps. And months ago? The episode hasn’t even been out that long. Unless you mean the whole 6th season, in which case that is most definitely NOT what I have been getting from the majority of the internet.

I wonder know did Moffat keep the secret too long. We had three years of asking questions. The Doctor's wife? Jenny? The Rani? Donna? Romana? A future Doctor? An older version of Amy?


When we found out that Amy was pregnant at the end of TIA, I just came to the conclusion that the baby was River. I took a guess that Moffat would like to tie all four members of the TARDIS Crew into one "unit", and tie River up to Amy and Rory.


I doubt that Moffat even knew who River was back at the Library now.

I am relatively new to Doctor Who, but I've seen all the episodes with the last three doctors, and I've gone back to watch several episodes of the very first doctor.


This new season is a bit of a disappointment to me actually.  The final episode just seemed like a lost opportunity, dramatically unstructured and a surprise that wasn't a surprise at all.


I like Matt Smith as the doctor, but I feel like it's losing its way lately.

I feel Moffat has a master plan (no, not a Master plan) and that we will be pleasantly surprised with the season 6 conclusion.

Have you heard anything about when we're getting Torchwood? I was checking around earlier, and I hear a rumour that we may have to wait til Monday the 18th of July to see it!


 


I'm kinda annoyed that the Beeb are treating us like this. They moved heaven and earth to make sure BBC Amercia and SPACE in Canada got S6 a few hours after us, and it now seems that we have to wait a at least week before we'll get to see Miracle Day.

i love Dr.Who, i've been watching on PBS since the mid 70's.


although i'm not a huge know it all fan type,no disrespect intended, the later series is better to watch in my opinion. and not becauase of the C G I . stories are much more believable. not a big C G I fan. i'm more old school special effects and miniatures kind of guy.

I love watching the classic series... NuWHO is awesome too, but I just enjoy the retro-coolness of all the classic (aka old) sci fi. I'm not sure why... I just enjoy watching old shows.


I never understood the hate toward Colin Bakers Doctor. He's my second favourite Doctor of the lot! Some of the stories were, mediocre (i.e. Timelash - Yuk!) but the actual Doctor himself was interesting. I like the idea of his regeneration being unstable, some didn't, I did (I also liked McCoys post-regeneration amnesia). The evolution of his interactions with Peri was nice. Since his regeneration had so radically changed him, Peri was not at all prepared for this new personality... who was (at the time) rude, abnoxious, egotistical and (imo) humerous.

I've lost all anticipation for Torchwood. I'm not sure if I'll even get around to watching season 4.

Nothing I've heard during the long wait for new ep's has particularly excited me so the anticipation has just died.
