Finally got to see the Christmas special.  I thought it was fun and harmless, and was a good vehicle for Capaldi to portray his version of the Doctor.  I also liked that it addressed the last night (24 years) of River Song.  However, I don't like that they used Matt Lucas as Nardole to do it.  I find the actor unnerving in every role I've seen him in, and he has never once played a character that is likable, including in Doctor Who.  Hopefully he won't continue into the new season.

I know he starts off in S10, and is in several episodes if not all of them (not sure). I at least hope they take some time to develop him a bit, and have a good dynamic with the new companion if he sticks around that long.

Oh well.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I liked the fat guy. He looked adorable. I didn't get why they brought River Song into this, I thought this was about losing Clara. The episode felt pointless, though.

Well since he doesn't remember Clara it wouldn't really be about that..

I'm drawing a complete blank on the last season, other than that I didn't really like it. Can it be summed up in a sentence?

It wasn't about Clara at all, it was about the death of River Song in the aftermath of "The Husbands of River Song", last year's Christmas special, which was the last episode of Doctor Who that aired.

It ended at the start of the last night of River's life.  But they were on Darillium, where night lasts for 24 years.  Hence, the 24 years that the Doctor has been gone in this new episode.

I actually thought it was about Clara too until they said River's name, then it all came back to me.

This is what happens when you have an entire year between episodes. It took time for it to register with me that it was about River Song, especially as I try to block River Song out of my mind. :lol

I had just rewatched the last episode recently, so it was fresh in my mind.  I thought about it as soon as it said "24 years later..." or whatever.

Apparently Moffat has said that Nardole will be in every season 10 episode. I didn't really mind him, but I think every episode is pushing it.

Yeah, they're going to have to do a lot of work to make him work as a companion. I also don't know how the dynamic will work with Bill. We'll just have to wait and see.

Third Doctor in a row to do 3 seasons in 4 years. I'll miss Capaldi a lot, but I'm also glad that Capaldi will finish his run with Moffat, and the next guy will have a fresh start, as was the case with Moffat/Smith. I hope S10 is as strong as S8/9 and that Capaldi gets a solid conclusion.

Agreed!

I do hope that they don't cast a Matt Smith clone after him, just to win back some audiences.

I loved Capaldi's darker take on the doctor!

I actually read that they want to return to the Tennant type of thing (to get the young girls back).

I don't really care what direction they choose, as long as the Doctor and companion are both well cast and have a good dynamic.

I said that I don't like new Sherlock for going dark but IMO Doctor Who is at it's best when it's dark.

It's the shitty forest of kids episodes and cities on backs of whales episodes that are usually the crap ones.

What does everyone think about the rumour that Tilda Swinton could be the new Doctor ?

I think she'd be perfect for it myself.

I mean - If they do go female.

I assume The Doctor can regenerate into anyone as long as they are Gallifreyan ? They do have female Gallifreyans I assume ?

The Master already regenerated into a woman, and the idea that regenerating time lords can change gender has been mentioned a few times on the show in recent years. So they definitely CAN do it. The question is whether they will.

Personally, I don't think it's necessary. If they have an actress who they think is perfect for the role then they should definitely go for it, but I don't think they should force it. In a way, given they only just made the Master female, they might actually be better off waiting for one more regeneration.

I'd actually be more interested in them casting a non-Caucasian actor this time around. There's definitely no reason at all to not do that.

When Matt Smith took over I'd have liked James Callis.  When Peter took over I'd have liked James Callis.  Both Matt and Peter were/are great Doctors, but now it's new actor time I still want James Callis (who hasn't really done much after BSG).

Kris Marshall seems to be the bookies fav.  He's just been written out of Death in Paradise, a show my misses watches and so I watch it too sometimes - so he's available.  I'm not against him taking the role - he's got a certain quirkiness and could do the humour if needed, but personally I think he'd be a rather safe choice and end up being a bit like Peter Davidson's take on the Doctor.

He left Death In Paradise because the work was too much for him.

I doubt he'd taken on Dr. Who.

Not sure I like the look of Bill.  Rumours of Cybermen being the big bad this time.

All starts on April the 15th.

John Simm will return this season as The Master. Looks like it will be in the same episode as Michelle Gomez, so I don't think it will be replacing her (I hope not, because she's amazing). Maybe we'll find out how Simms escaped the Time War and regenerated (or whatever) into Missy. I would like to see that a lot. They've done multi-Doctor stories before, but have they ever done a multi-Master one before? I haven't seen enough of the classic series.

First episode was pretty good. Felt like more of an introduction to Bill as the new companion than feeling like a big Doctor Who story though. That's not a bad thing, but with how long it's been since the last full season, I'm itching for more Capaldi too.
I was worried Bill was going to be annoying at first like Donna was to me, but so far she's ok. And Nardole was kept to a minimum, which I hope continues.

That preview for the rest of the season has me too excited.

Why is BBC America showing a canceled series? Is it just something to fill the time slot until they get something new or are they hoping to revive it for the American audience
