So I saw reports on Twitter that someone had "Web 3" for sale and it sold last night for an undisclosed sum. I think many had debunked it as being fake, which seems 99% likely as this person just...

And, in your opinion, does that mean he never writes bad scripts? Even Moffat himself has admited that some of his scripts weren't so great.

And, in your own profession, are you good at every part...

It's sort of happened twice this series (and the universe was rebooted by wishing it back in the earlier "Big Bang" episode). But in this series it's happened in the Forest of the Night and then...

Because, alas, since the new series it's fashionable to bash elements of the original series (particularly true during the early part of the RTD era) in an attempt to prove the worthiness of the new...

Keeping quiet is different to what happened though. The comments have been teasing, tantalising hints that "good things are coming". That's entirely different to the scenario you suggest. Comments...

I got to that stage during the 3rd series of New Who and by the 4th series I'd become a casual on/off viewer. Things improved for me with the first Matt Smith series, which felt far more influenced...

It's a media-thing I suspect. Dalek didn't do any better or worse in the ratings that anything around it from what I recall and that's a trend that exists throughout the series, old and new. The...

Those days are gone. Yes you still have 2 major parties but the Lib Dems are unlikely to get enough seats to act as kingmakers. In fact, the SNP are more likely to be the 3rd largest party in May...

I disagree with this. There's a brand association with the Daleks but are they really that popular? Perhaps in the 60s but since then it's rare for a Dalek episode to outperform a regular episode in...

I disagree with most of your post, especially the parts about the RTD era being so wonderful (hated it). However, the quoted bit above sums up my feelings about the Brig scene perfectly.
