  2. I came here to break my heart again, though I never knew that I'd break it during "Don't Forget To Click Below To Subcscribe To The Official Doctor Who Youtube Channel' moment oof

  3. Anyone else pick up from this series that nardole might have been Dorium Maldovar, he once said he used to be blue, and also stated that he was headless before the time with hydroflax, and he knew a lot about the doctor.

  4. This honestly sorta feels like it should be an end to Who, and, honestly, I wouldn't mind if it ended here. I'd miss it, but it feels like a good solid end with all things tied up.

  5. I love Doctor Who, and I love Clara, but this was the most STUPID thing I have ever seen. Whyyy?
    Don’t get me wrong, the script wasn’t wrong but the lighting and heavily animated aspect was dumb.
    But then again I hated all of Season 10 so

  6. It’s really sad that they couldn’t get some time freed up to get Jenna Coleman truly into the scene. The saddest part of this is that in his last moments, he really is alone talking to only memories of people he once knew and lost. The whole conversation about resting and being alone on a never-ending battlefield and watching countless friend and companion die off, etc. should have been with the actual Clara. She is the only person this Doctor knew who could have truly reached him and reminded him of who he was and the power he had to make a difference, no matter the pain.

    She and Me should have shown up at that moment and when he was most alone, his greatest companion and friend, the one who saved him from death countless times, and the one he was willing to break time for, would re-unite with him to give him the closure he needed at the end. The entire conversation could have been so deep, so meaningful if it had been with her and not facsimiles. Just too bad they had to elect to go with a brief green-screen cameo. It was a huge opportunity lost for a truly all-time Doctor Who moment

  7. Capaldi was the best Doctor. He could have done so much more given better material. I mean, he is the only Doctor Who can pull off a whole episode by himself in mostly monologues.

    In my reality, there was another season in between 9 and 10. After Heaven Sent and Hell Bent. A whole season is dedicated to the return of Gallifrey. A Time Travelling Bonnie & Clyde Season where River Song was Capaldi companion for a few early episodes with Nardole and where The Time Lords have issued a wanted bounty on The Doctor who is accused of being the infamous Valeyard after his actions of saving Clara. A season where Missy is hunting the two time travelling lovebirds and ends with an alternate death of River Song in the Tardis and where The Doctor was sent to the courts of the Time Lords as how the 6th Doctor have done. It dedicates the second half of the season on the Time War and The Day of The Doctor, with special cameos from previous Doctors and companions to testify The Doctor's innocence and prove that his reincarnation isnt The Valeyard with The Face of Boa being the ultimate callback. It ends with revealing that the real Valeyard was a clone of him from the Confession Dial Time Maze Island that Missy has manipulated alter to unleashed chaos in the universe and dedicates a whole episode where Capaldi (Doctor) fights Capaldi (Valeyard). At the end of the season, Missy was sentenced to death as seen in season 10 and locked away for the now cleared of charges and celebrated hero, Capaldi who also helped restored River Song's death as well with a little help of an impossible girl. The Doctor then took up the position of professor at Bill's university and the rest of it was pretty much the same with more focus on Bill, Nardole and The Doc trying to stop The Valeyard with some help from a rehabilitated Missy that also ends with the death of Bill. Missy of course double cross them with the help of the Master and helps The Valeyard in his evil plans. Ends with an epic self sacrifice from The Doctor to end the Valeyard. Final christmas and regeneration episode is pretty much the same.

  8. After watching this I imagine if Doctor Who ever ended—or went on another hiatus—that he’d be on a battleground and he’d see all of his companions. All of them. And he’d give this same speech, especially “thank you for everything that you were to me. But what happens now, where I go now, has to be alone.”

    And all of his companion, whom would all follow him to the ends of the universe, understand.

    And The Doctor enters the Tardis, regenerates, and that’s the end. Open, yet celebrating where it’s been.

  9. I never knew how to interpret this scene — Twelve seemed insistent they weren't "actually" there the whole time, while Bill insisted they were. But all three are dead at this point. This is after their deaths, yes? While we know Clara went off to have adventures with Ashildr for a while, she eventually did have to return to her timestream to die — presumably she'd have all the memories of her time in that heartbeat before her death. And Nardole is easy, since he didn't have any weird death stuff, he just went to protect people as long as he could and was hinted to die shortly after. But what of Bill? I'm admittedly a little more rusty on her storyline, but didn't she essentially get put back together to go explore the universe with Heather? So how does that work memory-wise, and should this episode be read as the companions "actually" being there or not? Agh I just don't know!

  10. I guess the saddest part of the end of Twice Upon A Time is the fact that we now know that Nardole and Clara are dead. We already knew that Bill had died, became a Cyberman and again died in the season 10 episode "The Doctor Falls" but in that same episode, we know that Nardole had taken taken on the responsibility of looking after the people from the farming level of the generational ship so to appear as a "memory glass" he had died at some point. Ditto for Clara – the last time we saw her, she was flying around with "Me" in a stolen TARDIS just waiting for the number on her neck to count down to zero. Eventually it did and she became a memory to be presented to the Doctor with the added bonus of unlocking the memories he had wiped previously.

  11. I didn't see as much of #12. Clara I know, the other two, I have no idea who they are. Were they good companions?

  12. When Clara is back here, I teared up and there were goosebumps on my body. I love this show so much. It just makes me feel so many emotions all at once.

  13. Anyone else get really sad when he had to look back at the battlefield because more of his friends had fallen and that they where the only people left so it was time for him to leave the battle field nearly cried

  14. I thought I didn't like Peter Capaldi at first because Matt Smith was so good.. but Capaldi's character grew on me and he changed into more of a fun and goofy character as the show progresses.. Moffat did the right thing selecting Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi.. although the fans annoyed him about casting a female character, I'm glad he stuck with his personal beliefs because the story with these two Doctors were unforgettable and it was a great era for Doctor Who (maybe the best ever yet). Moffat is very good at creating themes and characters (fun fact, he originally created Captain Jack Harkness and River Song). He also actually watched the classic Doctor Who shows as a kid, and incorporated a lot of the classic Doctor Who into the modern series. His work was unforgettable and it did struck emotions in me, his stories were very complex and deep.. but had very memorable moments, themes, and characters

  15. The best… he should have just done what he wanted and have peace/enjoy his own death. Much more preferable than what came after 🙁

  16. The most impactful shot for me is the scene at 3:47 with 12 standing in that empty battlefield all alone with that section of the music playing in the background!! 😭 Murray Golds music as always plus Peters acting is just gut wrenchingly brilliant!!

  17. One thing that interests me is how similar conceptually the Testimony and the Promised Land are: both are matrices of data derived by uploading all the memories of humans right before death into a massive computer. In fact I wonder if the Testimony was adapted from Missy's Promised Land, when the human race perhaps became advanced enough to find the abandoned database and repurpose it for better things after Missy's invasion with the Cybermen.

  18. So much emotions packed in just perfect acting and few words.
    Peter's acting and delivery is breathe taking and powerful to the heart.
    Jodie is not doing justice to the title of the doctor.

  19. A part of my life died with Peter leaving the show. I gave the new doctor the best of chances and she did not get remotely close to being as good. I spent so much of my life looking forward to doctor who and now that childish sense of hope and enjoyment has gone.

    So like Peter, Doctor, I let you go.

  20. I always wonder, when I travel back to the early Naughy 2's. Is this the timeline I remember? He made it great, so did Bill.

  21. Excuse me while I go be depressed for the rest of time because no doctor will ever be as incredible as Capaldi's doctor.☹

  22. Ok. It's been almost 2 years since this happened and I'm still deeply upset. There was part of me that hoped Peter Capaldi would be the doctor forever. He's the only doctor who I can watch and just smile like an idiot cause it makes me so happy just to see him be the doctor. Peter Capaldi will always be my doctor.

  23. i always thought moffats writing was not the best but having forced myself to watch the most recent series and rewatching old episodes ive realised his writing is fantastic

  24. He just got given back the memories of the majority of HIS adventures and he has to give it all up. He couldn’t save Bill or Nardole or the Master or Missy. This much would easily destroy most people. He has to become someone else again.

  25. The words "Doctor, I let you go" have never been more relevant. Bill is like the viewers, or even the Doctor himself, because we struggle in letting go something we love, The Doctor, but we learn to accept and let go.

  26. I love how he smiled when Bill and Nardole were at it lol, he misses novelty stuff like that when he's far from it too long.

  27. This moment was just as sad as it was when she said goodbye to the 11th doctor in the 12th doctors first episode. His first and last episodes just had to be sad didn't they. I'll Always remember when the doctor was Peter Capaldi. Doctor I let you go 😭😭😭

  28. Just re-watched this christmas special and this scene broke my heart all over again. Every word that is spoken by Capaldi in this scene has such deep meaning and hit me right in the feels. Oh and the music, that music, beautiful.

  29. Compare the last companion he truly got to see off with a hug: Martha Jones (another one of my favorites). There, he hid his face, because he was sad that he'd let her down. Not by letting her die, but by not appreciating her fully as a person.

    In the time since, he has learned so much, from the standard companions, to River, Missy, Danny Pink, Osgood, Bonnie, and other people.

    Now, he invites the hug, and his face isn't one of sadness. He didn't let them down, even though they did die. They had full lives, and all appreciated each other, even through all the jokes. And he's finally able to let someone go, both Bill, Nardole, and himself, without regret.

  31. You know that feeling when you're having a really emotional moment and trying not to cry and then –

  32. I like to think the show ended here. The doctor decided that he had lived long enough and it was time to finally rest. All he's been through, all he's lost and all the good he has done… enough, enough old man. Let yourself rest. A dignified ending to a character that gave so much to the universe…and to me as a fan..and to you. Rest in peace doctor and thank you.

  33. Touching, until you realize the TARDIS gets the final word and convinces him to regenerate. That old police box doesn't take guff from anybody. 😉

  34. As much as i love this, i think claras moment could have been so much better. The Doctor only exclaims that his memories are back and doesn't even really speak to her, and last thing she says to him is a joke, and nardole interupts it too… I just think that pair deserved better here
