Awesome GIF!

Also, for the record, I am stoked about the choice of Capaldi for the 12th Doctor. Looking forward to seeing an older Doctor once again! :)

I wonder if there's any direct connection beween the 12th doctor and the fires of pompeii.

There'll probably be no more connection between 12 and Fires of Pompeii (or Capaldi's character on Torchwood, for that matter) than there was between Amy Pond and Karen Gillan's character from that same episode. In the unlikely event that it ever gets brought up in-show, it'll be as a quick hand-wave like Martha Jones and her "cousin" from Army of Ghosts.

And, for the record, I'm also pretty excited about the choice of Peter Capaldi as the Doctor; I loved him in The Thick of It.

For those that have the channel, BBC America is showing NOTHING (literally, with the exception of a couple hours of BBC World News in the mornings) but Doctor Who episodes and the "Doctors Revisited" specials all week until the 50th special on Saturday. :O

I still need to watch the last two episodes, but unless Moffat & Co. just completely botched them, this is my favorite series since 5. I LOVE 12, Clara has managed to become one of my favorite companions (never thought I'd end up saying that a year ago) and their Doctor/companion dynamic might be my favorite pairing since 10/Donna.

I loved series 8.

Okay, I didn't love all of it (Kill the Moon was a bit overly pretentious and In the Forest of the Night was a bit dull), but there were a lot of good episodes here. Deep Breath was a nice intro (and a decent story with the Clockwork Robots). Time Heist was a fun future style crime story, with an interesting idea for a monster. Both Mummy on the Orient Express and Flatline were amazing episodes with great ideas for enemies and really well done story direction... to the point I honestly think they're some of the few episodes that can stand up to the best of series 5 in quality. And the finale? Pretty cool. Loved the new version of the Master, thought the idea of turning the dead into Cybermen was a great one and liked the concept of the Nethersphere as an artificial life after death thing.

Yeah, definitely a good series this one. Much better than series 6 or 7 ever was.

I like it best when it is not on Earth but they very rarely seem to go for that these days.

I also think love stories have no place in Dr Who.

Also long story arcs are better but they don't do that either. (They used to).

I agree. That said, they go off Earth quite a bit even now. I mean, out of series 8, Into the Dalek, Time Heist, Kill the Moon, Mummy on the Orient Express and parts of Listen and Dark Water didn't take place on Earth (although the latter depends on what you count the Nethersphere as). And back in series 7, Asylum of the Daleks, Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, Rings of Akhaetan, Name of the Doctor and Time of the Doctor were all or mostly not Earth based, with significant parts of The Power of Three and Day of the Doctor being likewise.

I'm not opposed to love stories in Doctor Who, I just get turned off when they threaten to overtake everything else on the show and (especially) when the show tries to turn the Doctor/companion relationship into a romantic one.
