season 8 wishlist

Here are just a few things I think season 8 should have. As much as the Doctors Name did pay off I hope season 8 wont have any more season long story arcs. Also there shouldnt be another mid season break that causes us to wait months to see the rest of the season. Lastly many episodes in season 8 were standolone and as a result many felt rushed so I hope that in season 8 we can expect more 2 parter episodes. please write what you think should be in season 8 below.

More Classic Villains!
the occasional two parter
an acknowledgement that the RTD seasons actually happened
more rules and boundaries to what the Doctor can do

Re: season 8 wishlist

- Don't get rid of Clara
- More standalone episodes
- More NON-dystopian/NON-horror scifi settings
- If there is to be a break midseason, make it a short one. Like a month.

You know, I was thinking about that today. I think it's time for a more serious Doctor. Ten and Eleven were whimsical and occasionally serious. Twelve needs just a few more degrees of seriousness IMO.

An older Doctor.
Different show runner (bring back RTD!).
I agree, keep Clara.
Derek Jacobi as the Master! He was amazing in his five minute stint.

Why do they need to aknowledge the RTD seasons happened? We know they happened, and there have been some references. In Let's Kill Hitler the Tardis saw fit to show Rose, Martha and Donna as potential interfaces, which frankly annoyed me-- why not Jamie, Sarah Jane and Tegan?--and the 50th Anniversary special is going to include RTD's main doctor and RTD's primary Mary Su...sorry, companion, I meant companion.

I'm not sure what you want? The 12th Doctor to pick Wilf up?

And more classic villains? In Series 7B alone we had the Great Intelligence, an Ice Warrior, Cybermen....plus, whilst not villains here, a Sontaran and a Silurian! Oh yes and we're getting a Zygon in the 50th special...

Frankly I'm not sure what's left? The Krotons, the Dominators? Ok maybe the Robots from Robots of Death would be good. I'm still pretty sure Moffat's given us more classic monsters than RTD did (though I admit maybe a lot of that's down to it being the anniversary year)

My list!

More consistency in the character of Clara
Return to 2 parters
No split series
More Ice Warriors
UNIT
Strax, Jenny and Vastra
Daleks
Someone to really make the Cybermen good again!
Some decent new recurring monsters (though I accept this is trickier than you think, whoever’s in charge)
Emilia Fox guest starring in an episode

And the main one. A great 12th Doctor. I don’t care if he’s white black or brown, young or old, male or female as long as he (she) convinces as the Doctor, and is very different from 11, 10 and 9…

That wish has already been granted. Clara has been confirmed for series 8.

I thought that was all pretty common knowledge, reported in the media announced by the BBC to all the world.

Yeah, BBC issued an official press release all about the Zygons in the 50th. Read here. It's hardly a spoiler or a secret

Waiting to find out why the Tardis exploded in series 5.
