I wouldn't mind Benedict Cumberbatch being the doctor.

No. Two young guys in a row is enough, time for a change. Don't want to get locked into each incarnation being played in roughly the same way.

Wasn't there a thing going round a while back about him playing the Master? I'd rather never see the Master again after the crappiness of his last appearance, but if he does come back this would be an interesting casting choice. I've only ever seen him in Sherlock, I have no idea if he's ever played a villain, but I get the feeling he'd be good at it. The Doctor Who and Sherlock fandoms seem to cross over quite a lot though, I guess the fans would find it weird that the same actor was playing the main role in both series. Although, considering the fact that he keeps stressing 'AN episode', I wouldn't be surprised if he has/will have a role in a two-parter or something.

While I'm here, I may as well say this; I'm kind of worried about Doctor Who right now. Series 6 onwards just makes me think that Moffat has stopped caring. The two main responses from the fans are both really, really bad for the series. Either they think it sucks, which is obviously bad, or they think it's the best thing ever. I know someone whose favourite episode ever is Asylum of the Daleks, which just hurts my soul. Rating it so highly when it's so obviously shite just tells the writers that they can get away with subpar effort. I really don't care where they're going to go with Clara because they'll just fuck it up anyway. I really hope I'm proven wrong.

Dat 50th anniversary better be good.

I've felt that way for a long while now. I've pretty much "given up" on Doctor Who, I just don't care anymore. When I sit down to watch a new episode, I try not to have any sort of expectations or standards for it. If it's a good episode, that's great. But if it's bad, I don't let it get to me.

Being able to be surprised and say 'hey, that was a nice touch' is much better than being disgruntled and asking why 'they didn't do this how I wanted them to'.

Dat 50th anniversary better be good.

I'm sure they'll find some way to screw things up.

You're both insane. Series 7 was a bit of a dip from series 6, but it's still infinitely better than anything RTD put out.

Anything good in RTD's Who is good despite him, not because of him. His own episodes are drivel.

I won't say he's the worst showrunner, because JNT made some pretty questionable decisions too, but he's certainly not one of the best.

I've been feeling this way since Series 4, this isn't a recent attitude.

I think the best series since 2005 has been series 5. Series 7 part 2 looks pretty good too though. Series 6 was a bit crap apart from the Silence (by that I mean the creatures, not the whole religious order thing). I really don't get how people prefer the RTD era, especially when they say the show's gotten more childish.

I think Steven Moffat should only write episodes with original villains though - they seem to work for him. He made an episode with the Daleks as the main enemy and they weren't very good in it, he should probably just stick to the cameos he usually does in his finales.

Series 4 was the worst of the revival, other than maybe Tennant's specials.

I really liked 6 and the first part of 7. Moffat isn't perfect, but he's still good.

Yo guys, I was planning on making a short Lego Doctor Who series, any suggestions for ideas? The only thing I know for sure is that the series is gonna be somewhat separate from the real Doctor Who, and it's gonna be focusing on the 12th Doctor (or at least, my interpretation of the 12th).

Series 6 did skip a few tracks here and there, particularly with how all along it turned out Amy Pond was a ganger and that was just after they faced the gangers. Series 5 as a whole is still my favourite from the Moffat era but I'm hoping part 2 of series 7 will still be good. Part 1 was a little hit and miss to me with some episodes I liked while others not so much. Couldn't really get into Asylum of the Daleks.

I watched the Reign of Terror reconstruction a few days ago.

It's a hell of a lot better than the one they did for The Invasion, but I still think they're going the wrong direction. Photorealism isn't possible with animation, so it just looks weird. Need to stylise it. Just treat it as producing a new animation, not recreating the missing episode. The end result will be better.

I think most of us have already seen it, but thanks anyway. I hope another trailer comes soon - one's due any week now, I think, since it's coming back in just less than two months.

DVD schedule confirmed, including a few surprises.

25th February The Ark in Space: Special Edition
11th March The Aztecs: Special Edition (plus Galaxy 4 reconstruction)
6th May The Visitation: Special Edition
27th May Inferno: Special Edition
3rd June The Mind of Evil
24th June Terror of the Zygons
15th July Spearhead from Space Blu-Ray
5th August The Green Death: Special Edition
26th August The Ice Warriors
16th September Scream of the Shalka

The Ice Warriors is not being animated and will include the same reconstructions as the VHS. Most surprised by Shalka. Something I'd never even considered getting a DVD release, but after including Big Finish's Shada remake alongside the original it does make sense.

It's not, it's a fan made thing from a while ago. The original author used to upload little clips of it all the time while it was in production and then eventually pasted it all together.

I'm no so convinced.

Lone Ice Warrior on a submarine? You're just turning it into another monster. They're at their best when they're doing the political Cold War-esque stuff from the Peladon stories, not stomping around shooting at people.

I don't expect anything Doctor Who related to be good any more.

Apparently BBC America will be airing classic episodes since this year's the 50th anniversary. Next one's gonna be on February 24th.

Sorry if it's been mentioned, but according to the Daily Mail (which means don't kill me if it's false) the 50th anniversary episode will see the return of all eleven Doctors, including those played by late actors. It will also most likely end with the Eleven's regeneration, which sparks debate for who will play Twelve!

Paul Bettany, Alan Cumming, or James McAvoy would be good.

I didn't hear about the possibility of him regenerating, though.

Idris Elba. It's time for a black Doctor, and another older Doctor.

Paul Bettany would be great too.
