    It's so weirdly simple yet clever.

    Oh yeah, they were also terrifying - but since I have watched them a lot, I don't find them too bad anymore. Maybe I need to grow a pair and face Midnight, and watch it :afraid:
    Midinght was good :yep: Scary too :yep: Along with the other ones you guys mentioned and the Vashta Nerada ones, them shadows that eat things :teehee:

    10th Doctor Eps were the best :yep:

    Oh I forgot, Empty Child, that was quite scary too, watched it at school in year 6 :moon: "Where's my mummy?" :afraid:

    I've concluded it is the scariest one, simply because you never know what it was... and fear of the unknown and all :afraid:

    Agreed! Tennant was the best :moon:

    Paha, used to say it to my mum to freak her out :mmm:

    Tennant was definitely my favourite, though I found 9 charming in a way. I feel like I would have liked 11 a lot more if I wasn't so frustrated by most of his storylines. I'm really looking forward to twelve. It seems like he's really going to be different to the other doctors of the new series.

    Okay guys I went to see the ''Deep Breath preview'' at the BFI southbank and I can safely say that Capaldi is an absolutely fantastic doctor who fits the role alongside Jenna perfectly, we got to see the whole episode in a cinema packed full of whovians which was amazing, plus a q&a with the entire cast and then Peter Capaldi came out and took pictures, signed autographs with the fans. It was a shame Jenna just ran for her car but eh, can you really blame her when Rob Stark was the man at the wheel?

    There's also a nice little reference to a previous standalone tennant episode, keep your eyes peeled, I was like ''I remember this!''

    It's also extremely witty, so there's less Matt Smith humour but in return there's more intelligent/situational humour which is great

    Anyone else watched the fan-made opening sequence that the new one is based on? I think it looks awful.

    Turn Left/Blink were both good, as has been mentioned. Personally was a huge fan of Midnight too.
    Turn Left is one of my absolute favourites!

    I love it. Very Burton-esque, which I think suits the hide-behind-the-sofa feel of the show pretty well. I also love the use of cogs to represent time. It makes a change from the time vortex and does exactly the same job as it anyway.

    You can find the official one on YouTube. It's very similar, apart from a couple of elements which haven't been included by the BBC. I have a feeling the official version is going to go down as the best so far.

    it would make sense as part of the story line, I guess. And explains the addition of Samuel Anderson to the cast. Another Micky?

    Yet to be confirmed, but it's certainly plausible. I haven't fallen in love with her like I did with the other companions - I got to like her more as time went on but something about her just didn't quite ring true.

    My pick for next companion - 2 friends, 1 male and 1 female, and NO ROMANCE PLEASE.

    She's not. They have to announce cast leaving beforehand so their agents know of their availability. Steven Moffat has said so before in interviews.

    There's nothing to say that they haven't discussed this! They might be keeping it secret if it's a plot spoiler... Still not sure whether it's true but it's not impossible!

    Have you re-watched series 7? I only ask because I felt exactly that way after watching them on TV but I recently re-watched them all and I feel like I didn't give her enough of a chance - her story isn't fantastic but she's much more rounded than I thought at first. I'm warming to her :p:
