And the majority probably thinks that Casey Anthony is guilty. That doesn't make it true.
The Doctor is the Doctor. Every single other incarnation I've seen of him has the same basic principles. I must confess that I didn't notice that, and it was unique for the Doctor, but it just wasn't the Doctor.
The departure ... was done so poorly...Rory is by far the best companion in New Who. And you don't even give him a goodbye.
The special effects were detractive at best.
The plot was pretty bad too: it was gimmicky and didn't make sense, even for dw. I don't care about explanations, but getting a B doesn't make me want to worship an alien.
The switch from fear to faith was seemingly random, but I'm not too annoyed about that. I'm annoyed that it kind of contradicts the best episode of all time. Different doctor, whatever, but that had to have been intentional. It's like the 3rd most famous episode.
The worst thing is he's making it totally obvious, given the shoes/tweed/bowtie or the more subtle things like the apples or cloister bell.
There were a few positives. The room numbers were clever.
The title had a clever dual meaning.
Dr. Who has NEVER been about the SE. It was popular for 40 years with the worst SE imaginable, anything in the last 6 seasons is SOOOOO much better that I'll never complain about that.
I actually thought that was really clever as I didn't see it coming, but then it made a lot more sense than just fear. I realized that the clues were there (ie. the dice and horseshoe), but I hadn't put the pieces together. As for contradicting another episode, I must have not seen that one, because I don't know what you're talking about.
Again, you've lost me. Are you reading this stuff on a DW forum or something?
I thought that was awesome. The whole episode I thought it was talking about the monster, until I got to the end and realized that it was talking equally about the doctor.
7th Doctor - The Curse of Fenric. You should probably go watch it because it's the best episode except for maybe The Caves of Androzani...
In The God Complex, the doctor thinks the foe is repelled by it and notes how important it is. Eventually, the Doctor has to break Amy's faith in him in order to save her. After they leave, he indicates you shouldn't have faith in him. Different doctors (although, the 11th is probably the closest to the 7th), but it's just disappointing to see him come to different conclusions from the same situation when regarding such an iconic episode.
RIVER IS GOING TO KILL RORY! AMY SAID TO HAVE HER VISIT, AND THE DOCTOR IS GOING TO RUN INTO THE OLD VERSION, AND HE'S GOING TO TELL HER TO VISIT AND SHE'S GOING TO KILL HIM AND KIDNAP AMY TO LURE IN THE DOCTOR!!!!
Another thing that suggests the flesh doctor (which I hate, Moffat....) is the Rubick's Cube. In Night Terrors he fails to solve one and says something like "I hate these things". In The God Complex he solves it.
7th Doctor - The Curse of Fenric. ..the Doctor has to break Ace's faith in him...in order to save her, and then ...he explains how he had to do it and faith in him is important.In The God Complex, ...the Doctor has to break Amy's faith in him in order to save her. After they leave, he indicates you shouldn't have faith in him..
And the random switch to "Don't have faith in me!" is still really confusing me considering they've been setting the Doctor up as a Christ figure (killed on Good Friday, betrayed by River with a Kiss, her lipstick was derived from the Judas Tree). I hope Moffat doesn't give him some sort of metaphorical resurrection. So overdone.
Is The Doctor going to defeat death when he's dead? Unlikely. It's obviously the flesh doctor...

Best case scenario: The Doctor doesn't die at the lake, and the flesh was a red herring. Worst case scenario: Moffat herps so hard he derps flesh flesh herp derp.
Stormageddon is now my alternate name on Facebook. I really want to straight up change my name legally...
Again, individually, these episodes have been fantastic. This season has the best fillers of any Who season, hands down. The Doctor's Wife, The Girl who Waited, The God Complex, and now Closing Time. Phenomenal.
Dead Doctor has black shoes. What color was the Flesh Doctor's?

The Doctor's Wife, The Girl who Waited, The God Complex, and now Closing Time. Phenomenal.There's been one TOP PERCENTAGE episode (The Doctor's Wife) and two fantastic episodes (The Girl Who Waited, Closing Time). A couple good episodes (A Good Man Goes to War, Let's Kill Hitler). Then a bunch of mediocre episodes that make me cringe (everything I don't list). Oh, and then episodes that just make me sadface because they're so bad (Curse of the Black Spot, A Christmas Carol, The Almost People). Maybe AGMGTW should be up there with TGWW and CT. The Rory-Sontaran scene was brilliant and the Madam Vastra-whoeverthathumanwasIforgothername relationship was good. (And on that note, The Doctor's fall was good. Just not in that episode).
Are you kidding? The plot is easily better than anything in New Who...
Mostly because Ace is probably the best companion of all time (besides Rory, potentially) and the 7th doctor is top percentage.
