As much as I liked the current season of doctor who the show needed a change, it just really sucks that this year all we are getting is a Christmas special. I was really looking forward to seeing the new companion this year.

Apparently there are rumours that Capaldi will step down in 2017 for Chris to choose his own Time Lord. Whether it was the writing or the actor I don't know but Capaldi's has never felt like a great Dr for me so sad we'll not get much in 2016 but looking forward to what's in store for 2017.

I hope Capaldi doesn't leave yet - we haven't really seen what he can do, thanks to the poor writing.

It's pretty much deduction, every writer will want to create his own doctor, pride and all that jazz, though IMO, one would better prove himself by fixing a mess then by starting a clean slate. Starting over just because, says so Little about the writes and producers :/ 

I have to say, this season and the christmas really made capaldi for me... because his first season, see below :/

agreed, if anything  we saw glimpses of Capaldi's possibilities this last season.

Well, well. It seems she'll be a good fit. Bit of a nerd (to appeal to the Osgood fans), bit of whimsy .. she'll do fine, I think.

 

What I'm more concerned with is whether they replace Capaldi or not just for the sake of replacing him due to the staffing changes in the show. That would be a mistake, imo; but it's up to Capaldi if he himself wants to stay on or not. I'd like him to stay, personally. He finally hit his stride last Series, and I think Series 10 will be even better if they give him the right material to work with.

Hmm. Bit of a nerd, bit of whimsy, bit of comedy all rolled into one. I like her already. :yes:

Yep - a 2 minute trailer and I instantly prefer her over Clara.

Meh. I'm not bothering with Who any more until Moffat has gone. He's proven that as a show writer he's OK, but as a show runner, he's all fail.

That's nothing - I prefer her over Rose, Peri and Mel before I saw anything!

There's something about her I don't like. Her face is weird looking to me (and I really really don't like saying that) especially in that framing from above they kept doing. I mean, I like her care free kinda attitude for this trailer about the Daleks and all, but she's weird? I dunno. I won't pass judgement until she's on the show of course.

Dunno if I'd want to have the lights off, then pop back on and her face right in front of me or something. Might give me a heart attack or something at this point lol

Yeah I saw that on Mashable I think yesterday. The news headline they used was something like "Chinese company makes a not-Dalek-but-is-Dalek security bot. Extermination coming soon?" lol

So the Daleks are actually Chinese in origin.

 

"Made in China"

 

Makes sense in some strange way.
