Just wish they hadn't made the new pure dalek jumbo race rainbow colored, should just have kept them og or made them black like the on in the cult of scaro.
Well observed. I will say I've really enjoyed Matt Smith, a lot, especially for all the idiosyncrasies he brought to the role. They're just plain fun. I think, marketwise, this is what the fangirls want, and that fandom really drives the show right now. One could equate it to the way most American shows can start out good, with sharp writing, good stories, and interesting relationships between the characters, but ultimately devolve into who's banging whom this week? ER comes to mind - in fact, when I heard it was ending, I was shocked it was still on. I hadn't watched it in, literally, ten years. Perhaps Capaldi will be a little more stoic, and that would be refreshing.
Next bit refers to the end of the 50th Special, unlikely as it is that anyone on this thread hasn't seen it. (Click to show)
I really do enjoy the stuff about Time Lords, and Gallifrey, in general, more so than the Doctor's own back story. I've always wanted there to be more of that. We must resign ourselves, however, to at least two seasons of the Doctor searching for Gallifrey. Hopefully it will work itself in sporadically, with most episodes being, well, episodic. Hints and teasers, of course, can be real or imagined. The latter would seem to be simpler to write.
