The Time Of The Doctor (Grading/Discussion)(SPOILERS!)

Quote:

Orbiting a quiet backwater planet, the massed forces of the universe’s deadliest species gather, drawn to a mysterious message that echoes out to the stars. And amongst them – the Doctor. Rescuing Clara from a family Christmas dinner, the Time Lord and his best friend must learn what this enigmatic signal means for his own fate and that of the universe


Well this is it. In a couple of hour's the clock will strike twelve and the eleventh hour will be over.

Hey Sam, is this to be a running live commentary, or just a general review after watching the show? Really looking forward to this.

Really looking forward to the episode, but not sure if I'm going to watch it tonight. Might wait until Tomorrow night or watch it late tonight. I hope it's not too depressing, other than the Doctor's regeneration scene.

I would assume that it's what ever you make it to be. But aren't you the guy who treats it as a live commentary and no one else?

Personally, I'd rather watch it and not be on here, same with all other episodes of Doctor Who.

Yeah live commentary works better when there's commercial break.since there are no breaks in the UK it distracts the viewing

Good point. Plus to be honest, live commentary isn't nearly as enjoyable at it used to be years ago when we had weekly ones for Stargate, Smallville and other shows.

I'll vote once I've seen it.

I've been waiting all year to post this. It's finally appropriate since it's Christmas Day.



I wonder if they were drunk when they recorded and shot this.

That was brilliant and me and mrs-dimesdan-to-be loved it massively.

Loved the regeneration.

Very rushed and the pace was really off, felt like a 2-3 hour script condensed into an hour at most. So much confusing, stuff mentioned very briefly in passing that if you aren't listening intently you'll miss and be confused - there were tons of confusing plot threads, most notably the shit with The Silence, the TARDIS being destroyed...etc

However I'm not really a Matt Smith, I'm glad to see him go and if Moffat can't do anything with Capaldi I hope he follows....

Loved it, tied a lot of loose ends up. Will really miss Matt Smith as the Doctor.

It was missing the mot important part, the actual story.
what we got was meh.

I would of liked a few more minutes it was a little crammed but it was dam fine and the way Moffat approached the regeneration was awesome using it as a weapon and then the sudden face change. One hoping for more more Geronimo ;) but I did love "Do you know how to fly this thing"

I presume the Time Lords will still return at somepoint though.

I agree....the more I think, there was so much that was just a throaway line.

Something about The Master and The High Council. Something about The Silence. Something about The Daleks. Something about time lords. Something about the crack in time. The TARDIS being destroyed was literally a throwaway line that I can't even remember...

Even the music was largely recycled, and Capaldi only got a few seconds.......

This is the perfect ending for this period of Doctor Who, a garbled mess of a story with some really cool character moments.
