    Why? So you get just as many plot holes, gimmicks, token gay/bi characters, companions in love with the Doctor and a whole year of maybe a few seconds from each episode being relevant till the final 3 episodes where everything is a deus ex machina?

    When RTD was in charge I said I prefer classic Who and was told "get with the times" I guess that is just as valid now to use for people who worship RTD.

    You all now owe me £10 .

    I enjoyed this episode and especially enjoyed the bootstrap paradox, though I admit it can come across as lazy storytelling if you're not a big fan. The whole "my sunglasses must have connected to your WiFi and made the hologram" was mindblowingly lazy, but other than that it was a good episode. I also like the fact that The Doctor is actually Beethoven .
    I don't think its lazy but put in there for word placement for certain fans that want explainations.

    It took me ages to work out how to do it last Dr Who season!
    SERIES its last SERIES! its a British show lol.

    Anyway did anyone think the shot of the phone and the Doc looking around was pure product placment?

    As the poll was reset, I can't find the poll ID anywhere in ModCP so am unable to delete the poll . I can however change the options on the poll to what you want and then use them as fresh votes?

    I thought the episode just needed more Fisher King (bit like the Power of Three's villain was only in the last ten minutes or so), it was quite clever how the Doctor tricked it though. I'm surprised the 22nd century crew didn't look at Clara's iPhone 4S like she'd just come from the middle ages haha!
    Happy with this series so far, the stories definitely benefit from having room to breathe and Capaldi is properly growing into the role now.

    Because product placment trumps a in story explaination lol

    I thought more that why would Clara who spends almost every moment travelling in time most in the future why would she want a iphone to fit in with modern day people.

    I've enjoyed the series so far. The only thing that's bugged me so far is that both first parters have ended with "Oh no, Clara/The Doctor have died" before 5 minutes into the next episode showing how they haven't died at all and it was just a clever ruse. We all know they're not really dead. I wouldn't mind it so much if they were put in life threatening situations where it seemed like they can't escape but to show their "deaths" or "ghosts" on screen every week is just too much.

    Would that solve the problem of people not being able to vote because they've voted in previous polls?

    Seriously? Does no one think the poorish rating so far might be due to it competing with Englands RWC games thus far?

    That's massively important tbh - a good atmosphere can make up masses for the actual work.

    So-so, I've had another couple of interviews since the mods meet, including one yesterday which I'm fairly confident about (applied Friday lunch time, by the midafternoon they'd called back asking me in for an interview Monday), but as yet nothing's really come off.

    Yep it definitely does help hugely. Although still hard to envisage myself in this job for any long period of time.

    Ooo that sounds promising...Here's hoping!

    Well it's all experience I suppose.

    Very promising - they came back yesterday to offer it to me.


    (Definitely not spamming our way through a thread to fix the poll :ninja: )

    Oh! I can't believe it's not been discussed! How do people feel about the spinoff that's been announced?

    (I guess going by the usual rules anything about the content/cast etc needs to be in spoilers, but general discussion is fine?)
