    I've seen her in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time which she's currently in and she was very good then. Trailer didn't particularly enthuse me so hoping that Moffat's writing doesn't let her down.
    Shame we have to reserve judgement for at least another 12 months

    I'm now watching the entire series and so can say a few things based on the first three seasons..

    Series 1 - Budget was too low but Captain Jack is brilliant, they should bring him back even if the Doctor does now know that he's the Face Of Boe

    Series 2 - Pretty good, the episode around the black hole was very well written, the Cybermen should feature more heavily in the show

    Series 3 - Was not a massive fan of Martha but the series was extremely well written with a marked increase in the quality of the episodes compared to the first two seasons. John Simms is the perfect Master, they should have dragged him back. Blink is (i say this as somebody who does not really do emotion for TV) an absolutely brilliant episode in terms of actually being a bit chilling. They should feature the Weeping Angels more.

    Also i hate the new opening sequence with the clocks and stuff, the one for series 3 is brilliant.

    I agree, I think Dalek, Parting of the Ways, The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit, Blink and the Sound of Drums arc were some of the best episodes to date. I think they should be careful not to overuse villains like the Weeping Angels though to keep the threat serious.

    It's a bit of a shame that they showed us them moving in later episodes too, Moffat completely disregarded the lore about them not having a choice in turning to stone. Now they can apparently move when they 'think' they aren't being watched, like in Toy Story lol

    Hey fellow Whovians! I'm new here, but after watching the entire "new" Dr Who series in two months flat (not sure if that's something to be proud of, tbh ), figured that I probably count as a Dr Who fan, soo...
    Current fave line is a tough choice, but possibly the one about his hearts "beating like a samba" XD (in an episode quite early on)
    Does anyone know when the next season is out?

    Welcome! I've heard rumours that the new series will begin in April 2017, but that's unconfirmed. It's filming now so it'll likely be early/mid next year. Too long anyway!

    Ahh, pity. lol ironic that I got interested in the dr who desert period. At least it's not the mid-to-late nineties! I guess we can just sit back and watch and re-watch (and re-re-watch) all the episodes and minisodes, memorise all the good quotes, buy a pair of sandshoes, a fez, a bow-tie, a purple coat and a pair of sunglasses (just for a mix-up) and a nice, long scarf for the retro look...

    Isn't it meant to be January I heard? Because they are giving Moffat a big send off.

    Nope, the new series definitely starts in April - Capaldi confirmed it. There's a Christmas special in December though!

    Yep, now they're just giving me reasons to procrastinate revision! As it's 12 episodes it'll end up finishing during exam season as well, which is annoying.

    Oh yeah, 12 episodes means it'll finish late June -mid July.
    And it probably won't be great.. At least study kitchens get free tv licences and a freeview TV.

    Yeah I'd take anything (bar Colin Baker's era) over the nineties... Yeah let's just fill the void by buying all the merchandise!
