I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

He's been a big fan since his teens, apparently.

Good on him.

Maybe, but he's got a crappy Dalek voice (there's a video on the Doctor Who website). Seriously, I can do a much better Dalek voice on the iAmADalek app, and I'M crap. :roll:

Does anyone else here just hate DW under Moffat's leadership? I won't go on about it if not, I'm just curious whether I'm the only Moffat-hater here!

I prefer him as a writer than a showrunner. Blink was an astonishing bit of telly.

I think it's just fine. I'm grateful that Doctor Who is on our TVs in any form. :)

Moffat has grown on me, but I do agree that he's far better as a writer than as a showrunner. In fact, he was, in general, a better writer before he became showrunner, though there have been exceptions.

But then again, every showrunner for the series since Verity Lambert have had their fans and detractors. Graham Williams and John Nathan-Turner have attracted more than their fair share of controversy, and often with better reason than RTD or Moffat.

Oh, I definitely agree with that! Blink is one of the best DW episodes ever.

I probably won't even have the TV on!

It will be a fresh new surprise for me on Monday morning, though I suspect it will be all over the headlines in the papers before I get a chance to log on.

I'm taping it when it's simulcast live on ABC.
