Resisting the temptation to find out what the new Tardis looks like having managed to avoid up to now is pretty hard.

Yeah, but I've forgotten it so it'll be a nice surprise.

Yes I agree - I don't like the new version at all. But I think it's meant to reflect how the Doctor is a lot more bitter this half of the series just after losing Amy and Rory - his costumes have changed too. He definitely didn't seem like the Doctor who wants 12 jammie dodgers and a fez to work on some maps (sorry - love that line!)

So excited for Saturday!!!! Anyone else seen the prequel to the first episode, the one with the Doctor sitting on the swings with a little girl?

Anyone else nervous about the similarities between Clara and Amy? :unsure: I'm not sure I can take another manic pixie dream girl from Moffat...

I'm away for two weeks from tomorrow, so no Doctor Who until I get back. I could cry. :cry2:. (On the plus side, I should be grateful to my parents that I'm going on holiday. But still. :cry:).

I thought in the Christmas episode she had quite her own character, but I noticed in the trailer for the Bells of St. John she even sounded like Amy at one point. I'm going to give her the benefit of the doubt though.

Are you talking about when she says something like 'tell me what's going on'? If you are I thought she sounded so much like Amy. I don't think she will be like Amy though because Moffat doesn't usually cop-out like that!

Yes! That bit! I wondered for a minute whether it was intentional and there's something mysterious going on.

Would be wicked if she was river song or jack harness daughter or something

I'm pretty sure Jack's daughter wouldn't be so cheery, mourning the loss of her own son.

RIP Steven

Can't believe I've never found this thread before!

I've often wondered why do so many people dislike Moffat?

Because of River Song and the nonsensical and boring plots.

Fair enough, I never liked River Song either-although I've enjoyed most of the episodes since her took over from RTD (except obvious ones like Dinosaurs On a Space Ship).

The two main criticisms I've seen against him are a) Bad writing. That he overcomplicates things and is just trying to show off, which ends up making it difficult to watch and unnecessarily flashy. b) Sexism and misogyny, characterised in the way that he writes female characters and male/female dynamics. Also there are some pretty dodgy quotes from him in interviews about how "the fact is that women are needy", things like that.
