I count possibly 5 times - River, the Queen, Marilyn Monroe (well, 11 ALMOST married her, right?), that woman from the Aztecs, and however he got down to a grand daughter (assuming he wed a partner to procreate an offspring that bore a grand child - as much as I love the audios, their canonical-ness is tricky). » 12/19/14 11:54am Friday 11:54am

To be nit-picky, the Master was shown throughout this whole past series, so she was present for all 13 episodes, even if she wasn't literally on-screen. Also, the implication that the Master made sure the Doctor and Clara stayed together this whole time (and that he met modern Clara) makes his/her presence even longer. » 12/18/14 11:07am Thursday 11:07am

The other key word there is "DELIBERATELY." Lost was unsatisfying because the ending was cliché, easy and left a ton of questions behind because they didn't seem to care to answer them. Whereas here, if we are left unsatisfied, it won't be due to incompetence, but rather to further subvert tropes, clichés and happy… » 12/09/14 12:09pm 12/09/14 12:09pm

I think this is close. You can't intone your voice, but there's no restrictions on pausing. If Person 100 can see all 99 hats, then they start the pattern, and unfortunately may sacrifice themselves. They pause for 1 second, to signal that they are referring to 1 person in front of them, then say the color of the hat… » 12/01/14 11:47am 12/01/14 11:47am

I imagine they'll digitally edit it out in the episode, but the Doctor Who promo still has the red bus in the background with an ad for a TV show called "Doctor Who" starring Peter Capaldi. Someone on Twitter caught it on Saturday night, so I won't claim credit. Unless this is a HUGE hint as to what's coming in the… » 10/21/14 1:19pm 10/21/14 1:19pm

While I do agree, and I don't "like" this Doctor either, I do think you can still enjoy the show and stories independent of the Doctor. I think 12's moral compass is quite askew, he's rude and insulting (sometimes funny, but sometimes bordering on outright mean) and traveling with him is more deadly than with many… » 10/13/14 12:04pm 10/13/14 12:04pm

The 12th Doctor. Granted, we still have more of his story to see, but I think right now he feels 100% in the right, infallible and everyone just needs to get on board. His recent treatment of Clara, and what she does in response at the end of the last episode, should be wake up call. But (*and this is conjecture, not… » 10/08/14 5:14pm 10/08/14 5:14pm

Actually, he's gone back and forth over the years. While 3 didn't approve of what UNIT did to the first Silurians we met (blew dem up), he clearly was working pretty closely with UNIT for years, and still considers himself by 11 to be their "science advisor" (Power of Three), or at least wasn't bothered by it. » 9/29/14 12:49pm 9/29/14 12:49pm

While I'm not too invested in the TV show either and won't be watching past the pilot (most likely), I don't think this is the show's biggest problem, not by a long shot. Just like others have said in various ways, solving "a case" doesn't stop any of Batman's villains - we have decades worth of comics to prove that. » 9/26/14 5:41pm 9/26/14 5:41pm

In the latest "Doctor Who Magazine," there's a column about review copies of each episode, and supposedly on the slate at the beginning for "Listen," they claim it reads "don't tell anyone about the young Doctor or Gallifrey." I guess they could've been joking, but I took that to confirm that we indeed were on… » 9/22/14 12:59pm 9/22/14 12:59pm
