@JohnGalt Then why are you reading an article about it?

Not when you are obviously a backwoods, redneck, right wing, trolling ass pirate.

JG - Ah Obama the socialist. Have you looked at Wall Street? Capitalists are making money. He's a crappy socialist.

@ Dayv: Yes!!! The Tom Baker bit might have been the best part of the Say of the Doctor!

Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion, but to just come out and comment, "This show blows in so many ways." and then not elaborate is pretty much asking to be bashed. JG, hopefully you are smart enough to realize this. Yet making such a blunt comment does make for a good argument about you being a Troll on these boards.

Next time you might want to explain as to why you think the show...or movie...or comic...or Obama speech..."blows in so many ways."

Now then... I felt like it was a solid movie and it was great seeing Tennant and Smith working together. My daughter enjoyed it as well. One of our favorite parts was 11 saying, "Timey-wimey" and then 10 looking at the 'Warrior Doctor' and replying, "I...don't know where he comes up with this stuff" Of course it was 10 who first coined that phrase haha.

Another fantastic part was seeing Tom Baker back! We only wished he had offered 11 a jelly baby! ;)

This show blows my mind in so many ways.

In the interests of balance, I would like to ask that you elaborate please Mr. (or Ms.) AlienRobotZombieOverlord. If JG has to provide reasoning for hate it, then surely we should do the same for why we liked it. Lead by example and all that ;)

Personally I loved it as a great episode dealing with an area of the Doctor's life that has remained largely unexplored (and I'm sure that brief sequence of the Time War blew half Doctor Who's budget for the next decade :P), the three Doctors all bounced off each other well agreeing and disagreeing in equal measure, just as it should be. Shame Eccleston was confined to archive footage.

That said, while it was a great episode, it really felt more like a celebration of New Who, and didn't delve much into nods to the classic era besides the finale. Fair enough I suppose as the majority of current fans are likely to be satisfied with that, but the Three and Five Doctor episodes felt like a more inclusive celebration. I guess it's difficult though when 3 of the 13 Doctors are deceased and 4 through 7 don't really look much like they once did.

Happy 50th to all the Whovians. The show has always been a celebration of innovative writing, big ideas, great casting and sheer nerve over NON BUDGET. Now CGI has rescued it from the era of 'every alien world is unfailingly a landfill.' Finally the production standards are met - and everything else is icing on top. Last night's show also put in place a future structure that was always needed - something to permanently drive the characters forward - instead of endless arrivals in the wrong places caused by seeming Tardis malfunctions. 'Enterprise' picked up in its final seasons because it had a locked-in quest - a focus - that supplanted everything else. Things will only get better from here. So lets celebrate and let the Trolls starve from neglect.

I really enjoyed this show. There were myriad hints at previous shows, they worked in some nice time tom-foolery, and even had some time to bring back the Zygons. About the only thing that it missed was a reference to Broton, and a jellybaby. I really enjoyed Hurt's portrayal of the Doctor -- he showed just how effective an older Doctor can be.

I really liked seeing Tennant in the role again. It reminded me of why I he is my favorite doctor. That being said, I really thought the Warrior Doctor was going to be a much darker character. Also, they seemed to have glossed over what other regrettable things he may have done fighting in the time war. They pretty much focused on his ultimate final act.
The entire episode had a much lighter tone than I thought it would, especially after seeing the mini-episode, The NIght of the Doctor. I thought Hurt was going to play a real bastard! But, he did a great job. I'm glad they chose him for the role.

Will they be replaying this soon?
Ramiel - 11/24/2013, 10:03 AM
Haha! These idiots think that John Galt is right-wing. Dumbasses, just google: Who is John Galt?

Also, Corporatism =/= Capitalism. Know the differences!

It was fun and awesome and just a wonderful celebration off what doctor who is for the people who know and love it.

Like predicted - I laughed, cheered, cried, everything. My biggest cheer moment had to be the 2 seconds of Capaldi we got. It just took me by surprise and literally made me gasp and jump with excitement!

I am a very long time fan of the Doctor (I started watching the fourth Doctor more than 30 years ago). It was a good story, but more nostalgic than what I was hoping for. The show has a 50 year history of moving forward by not looking back very much. The exception was the sixth and seventh doctor era, which did reference the past a lot, but which landed the show in long term suspension. Not that I don't love seeing McGann, Piper, Baker ect. but I want the show looking forward again.

But folks, this is a terrible place to discuss Obama, Socialism, Corporatism, or whether a fictional libertarian philosopher should be referred to as "right-wing". The tone of conversation seems to prove it is out of place. there are plenty of intelligent points to be made on all sides of this discussion but putting them here makes it all seem like a name calling contest.
