@ericthehalfabee.

You still not seen TUAT then Eric?

It might take your mind off going to the dentist, your teeth and all that...

Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

Haha! We watched it about two weeks ago and it was marginally worse than the dental procedures, and they were the worst physical experiences I’ve ever had :lol:

(Doctor Who) has been hijacked and redefined as a lucrative modern franchise. They've literally taken a square peg and painfully made it fit a round hole by taking enormous liberties with much of its fundamental essence. There's no turning back now.

I still haven't seen it, save for that terrible regeneration scene and I don't intend to see it any time soon. 8-)
The Doctor died with Capaldi. The Chibnall era is non-canon.

There are no Doctors before William Hartnell.

Without respect, we reject.

You don't want to see the First Doctor being disrespected by Steven Moffat? Why ever not?

I finally decided to watch it to see off Capaldi's Doctor and I have to say despite the butchering of the First Doctor, it was passable.

The First Doctor wasn't that believable and David Bradley had none of William Hartnell's charm in the role. The right on PC jokes were quite painful to endure and I hated how William Hartnell's Doctor was portrayed as an old fashioned sexist.

I don't like how Capaldi's Doctor refused to Regenerate. We had that woe is me rubbish with David Tennant's Doctor and I think that Capaldi's Doctor should've gone with dignity. Speaking of Tennant's Doctor, I think this would've been the perfect story for him, but I digress.

I liked Mark Gattiss's character and the concept of taking people out of time to record their memories. I think Moffat did well there.

Bill was good in it, but I hated the scene where she called Capaldi's Doctor an 'arse' but other that, she was good. I liked Bill's character in Series Ten.

Sparky the Dalek was a surprise to see. Nice of Moffat to finally decide to put him back in. I had to strain my memory because it was so long ago since I saw that episode.

Orveral all, I thought it was an alright ending to the Twelfth Doctor. Nardole made me laugh and even though I'm not a fan of Clara, it was nice seeing her breifly. It took me back to Matt Smith's era. Especially the part where a Majestic Tale was played.

I watched it right up until he regenerated and then stopped it before she appeared. As far as I'm concerend, The Doctor is dead.

I would've given it a five, however I gave it a one before even watching it.

RIP Doctor Who 1963- 2017 :death:

Same here. I downloaded it from On Demand on Sky to watch and had to close it when I saw his eyebrows.

It was odd, but on broadcast, right up to the moment of regeneration - and despite knowing that she was on her way - I remember thinking: "There's still time, BBC. You don't really have to go through with this!" as though hoping the whole thing had been one dumb publicity stunt.

But no. His eyebrows changed to hers - and it was game over man. :death:

RIP Doctor Who.

Hated the portrayal of Hartnell too. They couldn't have been more disrespectful if they tried.

Oh I'm sure they tried. You don't do something like that by accident.
(Doctor Who) has been hijacked and redefined as a lucrative modern franchise. They've literally taken a square peg and painfully made it fit a round hole by taking enormous liberties with much of its fundamental essence. There's no turning back now.
