Favourite Capaldi Stories

For me it's got to be between Robots of Sherwood and Time Heist but I do like the Caretaker.
The Doctor died with Capaldi. The Chibnall era is non-canon.

There are no Doctors before William Hartnell.

Without respect, we reject.

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)

It's "Mummy on the Orient Express'" and "Flatline" for me.

If I had to pick a top 3 I'd go with, Flatline, Mummy on the Orient Express and Listen.

Yeah, that was pretty much my response too. I suppose I'd have to pick the Mummy one and Flatline for being dangerously close to being watchable, but really, it's like asking which colour dog crap you'd rather eat.
(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.

The Mummy one had its faults, but it wasn't bad. Flatline was pretty good, even if you don't make allowances (i.e. you don't use what's called "the Torchwood scale") it was still good.

Listen, Flatline and Dark Water were the best three, frankly all the episodes were a bit lacking, but Capaldi was outstanding.

Capaldi was outstanding, but on repeated viewing a lot of the episodes lacked a certain something. Favourite of the series for me was In the Forest of the Night.

"Mummy on the Orient Express" and "Flatline" were definitely my favs from S8.

I also liked "Listen" quite a bit, although I recognize why there's a variety of opinions on this one.

I thought Flatline and The Mummy on were probably the best episodes.

I'm not disputing that.

Mummy is my favourite episode by a long shot.

Behind Mummy Flatline and Time Heist were decent/watchable.
