Last night I dreamed that it was Christmas day and I saw the Snowmen and it was awful, possibly the worst Christmas special ever and the new companion Clara was cringeworthy and basically a Rose type character who was madly in love of The Doctor.
Dark days are ahead for Who I'm afraid.

Are you prone to premonitions?

Don't panic!

Even if this is a joke thread, I gotta admit, it's pretty ironic as a similar thread will exist with the same title, minus the question mark, played entirely seriously in at least two months time. -_-' It happened with Martha, Donna and Amy. It's inevitable.

However, if this is that thread, better now than later.

Jesus Christ! You can't call her the worst when we've only seen less than a minute of her!

Yeah why do we bother even calling Amy a companion anyway? She was only in 2 1/2 series and had popular support amongst the general public

I've found it more 50/50 with her she's not as popular as some think she is.

I accept a lot of people like her but a lot also don't

If you wait a few minutes I know there's going to be a poster coming along who will feed you a lot better than me.

And Karen's Best Actress award win at the National Television Awards 2011 fortunately put those Amy haters firmly in the minority thankfully.

That was more Who support than Karen support (I'd sooner a bad Who actress win than someone from another show) the only good scene she ever did was her last one which I admit was well acted apart from that all she did was sulk and wear dodgy clothing

Karen wasn't great but she was a lot better than Billie Piper.

You think that's bad? I had a dream that someone dropped a nuclear bomb on England (a real one, not that it happened in Doctor Who)!

I preferred Billie/Rose which is odd as when she was first announced I hated the idea that they were going to use a cr@p singer from the 90's but the girl did OK.

TBH I even like Adric more than Amy only one I dislike just as much or maybe just maybe slightly more is Lady Christina de Souza as Michelle Ryan is one of the worse actress in the history of TV

You can't be serious. How can you make a judgement like that, without seeing her in action first. For all we know, this Clara could be an excellent companion, can't be any worse than Amy. Plus, in my opinion, Rose wasn't cringeworthy until series four anyway, and then not nearly as bad as Martha.
Yes, I have stated I have doubts about this years Christmas special, but that's only because of the two previous ones being utter sh*t. I hope I am wrong and it turns out to be fantastic. We will have to wait and see. Even if it does turn out to be rubbish, I won't judge Clara just on one episode, I shall wait and see what she is like in the rest of the series. Then decide if I like her or not.

it hasn't happened yet.

Clara may be curious about the Doctor as most companions are, don't think she will be in love with him. The Doctor likes questions, Clara might ask lots of questions.

Yeah, but Rose was at least 20, this girl looks about 15. She might have a crush on the Doctor, but she probably won't love him so much as pass him notes in class asking if he likes her.

Am I dreaming this thread? It's so ludicrous it can't be real.

Scorpio2=Worst dreamer ever?

We've all had that dream of a TV show or film we've been looking forward to for ages being out and not living up to our expectations.

It just means that our minds aren't as good at imagining the TV show than the TV show is at surprising us!

Which is surprising really, because my subconcious is much better at imagining my real life than I am
It's a lot more fun when I'm asleep

What we don't do when we have those dreams is hold it against the show in question we're dreaming about.
That way madness likes

Scorpio2, if you dream about your partner cheating on you are you then really mad with them all day?
Bet you're exactly that type too
