    The writer is clearly writing for the sake of controversy - the daleks aren't supposed to be scary because of their appearance - they're scary because of their ideology and that that ideology has been quite prominent in the real world in the past century. They're nazi ideologues - cold hearted murderers with an obsession with racial purity - that is what is supposed to make them scary - and it works.

    As for the bit about the tardis, external appearance may be simple but you can't seriously think the control room is unimpressive - particularly some of the old designs.

    I think the nicest thing that can be said about the writer of that piece is that he has a limited imagination. :rolleyes:

    Tbf I'd agree with a lot of what the writer says. Especially about it being to connect with the characters, poor writing and terrible effects. However, despite all that I still really like the show. I think it's the idea of the show I like and it's potential in capable hands.

    That was pretty terrible for me, could have easily been a run of the mill episode in execution. As always with Doctor Who, ideas are amazing, execution is incredibly poor :sigh:

    Almost nothing happened for the entirety of it. It was so obvious what was going to happen at almost every stage and it was ruined by making gif specific scenes :rolleyes:

    I dunno, I thought it was awesome.

    I've just got a couple ofissues:
    I'm still trying to understand how the Doctor and Clara got out of his time stream though? Clara saw her at the end of NOTD but it wasn't really mentioned other than a brief 'I've seen you before' or something like that? Can't really remember.
    And how did all the previous Doctors know to group together and freeze Gallifrey (especially Capaldi. And, if he is there, why aren't all his future regens? Maybe a red herring because of the whole '13 lives' thing?), sort of just happened - how did they get the planet to 'touch' the cube?


    Moffat definitely delivered on his 'change the history of the show' remark. Now looks as though he will deliver wrt Trenzalore and the fall of the 11th. :holmes:
