That was terribly dull. I'm glad Matt Smith is gone, and (hopefully) Karen Gillan forever. I like them both as actors, but their Who characters...meh and super meh.
Moffat bores me to internet surf while watching, something I didn't do as a child during old Who or as a teen watching new Who.

I like the schoolkid friendship of Clara with the Doctor, and hope it kinda continues with Capaldi. Really, I think this show would benefit extremely from Moffat not being in charge. I'm sick of epic monsters being background noise to boring stories about nothing and a fork ton of exposition.

Don't you pick on Missdelaney!

I never finished the Matt Smith episodes because yet another River Song episode popped up and I was done. I can't stand her. The Tennant run was ruined for me because of the endless stream of companions that fell in love with the doctor. That got tiresome. (Especially Rose freakin' Tyler.)

I will watch at least some of the Capaldi episodes. I have hopes they will be more interesting than Matt Smith.

Even Clara was at least attracted to the Doctor. I suspect that now that we have an older Doctor, the companions won't all fall in love with him (though personally I'd rather Capaldi than Smith, but whevs).

rainy day, i read all 39 pages of this thread in <24 hours. :-)

neither of us watched DW when we were kids, and just a few months ago decided to binge watch the reboot, and we're big huge fans now.

i have one thing to mention. so... when river gave him all her regeneration power, why didn't it give him all her lives too? that seems silly that it didn't.

i took the quiz, and i'm totally the tardis. woot woot!

it makes sense that matt smith's doctor would have snogged with his lady companions. he had a childlike demeanor and was really excited at the kisses. it was part of his personality. kissing is cool!

oh. also, it made me sad that the doctor wasn't straightforward and didn't ask young amy whether she wanted to interrupt the timeline where she was left in the red waterfall. (also weirds me out that she didn't seem affected by the decision. she just picked up and seemed normal.)

one last thing. river showed up to give amy the empty journal at her wedding. so, how did she know to show up if the doctor's existence was all hinging on amy's memory? i guess she showed up from the future where she already knew about the doctor? timey wimey?

i lied. (rule #1) how did river get to the future to learn archaeology? did the doctor bring her there? (she didn't have her vortex thingy yet)
