    Loving the series so far, much more than last year. Don't see why people are getting so hung up on the sonic sunglasses? It's just a gimmick, exactly like the screwdriver. Just gives Capaldi a bit more personality.

    It would be like changing the tardis to be a submarine or something. The Doctor, the tardis and the sonic screwdriver have been there from the start. To me it's almost disrespectful to origins of show.

    The sonic screwdriver wasn't added until the end of Troughtons time as the doctor, didn't become a major thing until Pertwee and was phased out during Davidsons stint so it was only really around for the seventies in the original series.

    It's no different to when they gave The Master a laser screwdriver which was more powerful than the sonic screwdriver because it used light (lolwut?). Not to mention he used it to age The Doctor with no reason in sight as to how he did it, but people don't care about this because Tennant was there.

    The big thing for me is that I could easily see Capaldi's portrayal of The Doctor doing something like this, if he were a real person. He would definitely get some sonic sunglasses, we all know he would. He's weird and quirky and doesn't do what all the other Doctors have done. I love it .

    Oh those episodes annoyed me lol. Yeah but practically sonic sunglasses just aren't as maneuverable as a sonic screwdriver...

    It's just such a tiny detail, like Smith having a fez. I can't imagine getting hung up on such a small detail when the quality of the episodes has been fantastic.

    The first double parter I thought was awful

    Additions I think are great, changes I just don't like!

    Cara made some cards for the doctor for him to me more sympathetic but he didn't really apply them right

    So you spoiler something that's already happened in an episode but you decide you don't need to spoiler when you say

    The cards were great, it's a shame jenna is leaving her role soon

    yeah, I was describing what had happened and didn't know if people would want to know it that in depth before seeing, even though it was a tiny clip with nothing to do with the story line so I put it in the spoilers, the other thing I said wasn't a spoiler so I didn't use the spoiler

    The fact that I mentioned the cards? That had already been mentioned and as I said a tiny part of the story line. It really wasn't a spoiler :/ there were people who mentioned the cards and what they were before me, without spoilers?

    I'm not sure I'm getting through to you...

    The cards weren't a spoiler and you have just agreed that they weren't yet you still put them in spoilers. That's not the point though. The irony is that you put that in spoilers yet the fact that

    Clara is leaving
    wasn't put in spoilers. Just go back to the post where you mentioned that and put it in spoilers.

    Yes it was, if it's not happened on screen yet it's a spoiler.

    Even if it's been announced and on the news, it's still a spoiler until it happens. Some of us purposefully ignore news on whats to come to avoid ruining the suspense.

    Why do they need to be maneuverable? All he has to do is keep them in his pocket and press a button and magic happens.

    Also, lol at the idea of keeping away from DW news and then going to a discussion thread...
