AMC just bought out (or merged with?) BBCA, so their entire strategy going forward will be different.

I think it's a natural attrition given the difference in actors, but it is still surprising. Interestingly, it was the highest Who debut ever in the US, even higher than in the UK. The US has since started to drop, while the UK remained steady.

Then please take your own advice. Respond to people without the sarcasm. We're here to have fun, not tear down the answers of others. There is no need to rip someone else's opinion in order to share your own.

Context. Perhaps you've heard of it? Obviously not. As for Capaldi making history, his version of the Doctor has people tuning out in droves. Historical, sure. Fabulous for the series? Not so much.

That's enough. The teacher is calling this fight off.

The problem is they never gave enough love for them to start ripping them apart. I get it. End game. It's a phrase, however, that means nothing without actions to back it up. Their "love" has never truly been shown, only hinted. It was derailed when the crew fell apart at the end of Season 3 and hasn't found the rails to board again.

My problem with the slow burn is that there was never a fully formed romance to allow us to get to know them as a couple in the first place. If they didn't want them together, then just don't put them together. If they wanted us to buy into real love, then let us seem them as a couple, outside of - what - three bedroom scenes? Otherwise, let's just drop the romance and focus on story.

I'm with you on the Clara thing. If I've spent two Doctors and a companion (Amy, since Clara was introduced during her run) only to find out she was a ruse, their story better be bigger and better than anything in the history of Whos, The Day of The Doctor and The Time of The Doctor included!

"And we know what a woman like that would say - eventually - to a man who thought she should give up her interests in life and do only those things of which he would approve... (And we're not allowed to use words like that in this forum :) )" Surely you mean, intelligent, confident and self-sufficient. Feel free to use those words anytime! ;-) (PS -- we'd feel the same way about a man who didn't let a woman dictate who he was just to be in a relationship.) If it turns out Clara has been a strong companion and was in all of The Doctors' lives only because this Missy programmed it, I'm going to be pissed!

Schoolchildren in the UK call their teachers Miss and Sir. Clara would be identified as Miss, which should have no other linking to Missy. Although Missy does dress like an old fashioned teacher. Lol
