My thoughts on the next companion and the stories being told:
Moffat has had trouble with letting people be people and not mythological entities. I started thinking I was going to say women, but no, he also can't just let the doctor be upset without extreme drama. It has to be "the sadness of a thousand years", not just "a bad day". Rory was cool, but he had to become "the roman" or whatever. Everything has be be turned up to 11 (or 12) so that you become numb to the extraordinary.
Clara couldn't be smart, she had to be AS SMART as the doctor. She's not a genius nor is she time lord old, so I hated that she kept treating him like a school child with the "we talked about this" and junk. She was infantilizing the Doctor more and more. The cue cards were cute at first, but the Doctor has been suave before, he just needed to be reminded to tap into that. And that they made him forget all the other times NuWho showed mercy or compassion in a dalek, shows that they consider regenerating past the limit a really bad and brain damaging process (I mean, Rassilon did limit the number intentionally - see Zagreus).
I'm hoping for a new companion that the Doctor can be parental / a teacher towards. Someone that can make him feel like the elder he is.
I'm hoping that this new companion doesn't become a mythical figure, no "Bad Wolf", no "Girl Who Walked Across Earth", no "Doctor-Donna", no "Girl Who Waited", no "Impossible Girl", just an ordinary person who likes the adventure.
Elevating each companion to the level of gods has made the companion exactly what it shouldn't be - no longer a way for the audience to relate to the adventure.

I definitely agree. There's a lot of good in the more plot-heavy companions that we've had, that have created some really great stories, but I would really like someone completely normal. Not someone who even has anything to learn. Just someone who wants to see what's out there.

I'm looking forward to getting to know the War doctor better.
Did anyone read the book (Engines of War)?
Any thoughts?

Anyone wishing to play music in their games on Android Chrome currently has to create an "Enable Music" button that goes through and play/pauses every track in ig.music

Please star this bug to let Google know that this is an annoying behaviour and needs fixing.

It's a good idea to preregister for this event. They're a lot cheaper when they start out. We do try to provide great steampunk content (along with the pirate crew of the dead rabbit. So, hopefully it's worth it to those who do go.
