    Thanks
    I'm guessing you mean Peter Cushing's Doctor right? If so, his one isn't officially recognised. Moffat did apparantly want some reference to him in the 50th though!
    Coo. Moffat to recog Cushing? That's news! :eek:

    Your table is awesome, did it take a lot of work?!

    It actually didn't take me a lot as i'd thought about it tons already even before joining this thread I know a lot of people that have had trouble with the numbering, but i found it sort of easy as i think i'm more or less right with my table.

    I just can't wait for a bunch of certain things in series 8 though, i'm eager for my answers!

    Anyone else agree that the new Doctor is more suitable to an Emmerdale role? He is just so boring, and so difficult to understand. His jokes just don't sound funny at all - barely any character at all.

    As for the episode in general; it started with the same typical story of the doctor wasting half an hour acting mentally disabled after his transformation, and the companion boringly trying to comprehend what has happened. It's just so repetitive!

    The jokes and one liners were also poorly presented, such as when the 'Sontaran' threw a newspaper powerfully enough to knock Clara out. Boring. As for the characters; Clara is the only one worth watching. The lesbian green alien thing is just painful to look at, and the Sontaran's speech is 60% mocking humans, e.g. "boy".

    I honestly believe this is a massive downgrade from the last three doctors.

    Any similar thoughts?

    This new doctor is totally lame. And he's too old for my liking.

    Terrible, annoying, slapstick humour (like Clara being knocked out with a paper or the Doctor falling through the tree) with stupid one-liners and I cannot stand that lame, unfunny sontarin character either. Maybe Peter Capaldi will get better as the series goes on, but I won't be watching it lol.

    Though as ever, the title sequence was very cool!

    That was a weird episode... What did people think? Think that the doctor will take some getting used to after David Tennant and Matt Smith.

    I'm really unsure how I feel about him at the moment, but at the same time I think it would be unfair to cast judgement upon him based on purely one episode. I guess I shall make my mind up as the season progresses.
