A fantastic Weird and Wonderful. As a massive Minecraft fan, the DW in Minecraft is probably my highlight this week :D

Isn't that the same Matt lookalike that was on The Graham Norton Show?

The best bit of the Mexico appearance is seeing Moffat wearing a fez :-)

Is it just me that gets emotional at The Long Song speech? Im not quite sure why, but the whole mood of it just gets me every time. For me it is the greatest in a huge list of great speeches given by The Doctor, ever!

I like the sound of that new theme tune.

That ident is great - not just Capaldi's stare, but the secret Dalek in the circle of cyclists near the end!

You have to be kidding about that new theme tune,  it sounds like a Jon Nathan Turner is back from the dead and hammering a bell.

Moffat met Capaldi at a party. DW time loop confirmed!

The Long Song Speech is amazing. I love how he got Eccleston's and Tennant's voices in there as well. The images were so delightfully amazing, and very emotionally. Also, this is unrelated but what I just realized: Remember that quote Clara said at the beginning of DOTD, "Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one."? Doesn't the whole "good man" thing remind you of series 8? Foreshadowing by Steven Moffat!

Doctor Who suits 60/70s music so well! Loved the GoTG trailer! And that Capaldi speed drawing too. Wow!

Last W&W for awhile, but brilliant! I love the GotG trailer, theres another I saw on youtube though that was specifically Day of the Doctor Oriented. 


Now that we are on the countdown to Deep Breath....how does every think the episode is gonna start (not talking to the people who saw the damn leaks)

If that's how the theme song actually sounds, I think Murray's finally got it right! :)

Are they going to upload the full Q&A panel's at any point. Seeing very small highlights bugs me (probably because I'm an impatient git, but whatever)

Wow, another good addition to Weird and Wonderful.

Just wondering, can anyone tell me how you can post a video/picture onto this website for it to be on Weird and Wonderful? It would be much appreciated.

One of the reasons I love 'Weird and Wonderful' so much is that it gives everyone a chance to broadcast their work on a wider platform and to get themselves noticed - where other times their work has gone unappreciated. It constantly reminds us of the sheer talent that's in our fandom. With all the negativity that comes from it, this Sunday feature always shows us that the majority of the fandom isn't at all bad and are in fact some of the weirdest, most wonderfully talented people on this planet. I am constantly in awe of the things I see here and this weeks is no different. They're all absolutely amazing, I'll really miss this whilst Series 8 is airing! Thanks DWTV for another great installment!

That Capaldi poster at the top is amazing, and I like the Guardians trailer - basically just get all the coolest clips of Matt's era, some of the wittiest lines and put some awesome music over the top! (Great film, too!) And as ever, the impression is amazing.

@The8thDoctor Whoa whoa whoa, who's dissing the JNT theme here? That theme is a masterpiece of cheesy 80's synth.

I just hope it doesn't pick up where it left off. I feel it would be too much like Eleventh Hour in a way.

@Meh Meh Meh Meh Meh Not really, the synth is rubbish - more like bzz wzz wzzzz than ooo weee oooooo, if you get my meaning. Needs to be more whistle-y.

@PeterGecko2 If it's a video then upload it to YouTube and email Doctor Who TV with it. I did and my trailer made it onto W&W. Image wise, I'd suggest uploading it to an image sharing site such as Photobucket, and then emailing Doctor Who TV with the link.

@TardisBoy Quite! Our fandom is many things, not all of them good, but if there's one thing that's certain - and very positive - is that it's incredibly talented. And with series like these - and other media on the internet - the talent can reach everyone, even the executives of the show itself, as we now know from Moffat. Maybe that's what the future holds; thanks to initiatives like DWTV's Weird and Wonderful collecting and expressing the talent of the fanbase, the creativity of the fanbase is starting to be more and more noticed by the producers themselves, and may start to be tapped into further. It's an exciting prospect :)

@TardisBoy I couldn't have put it better myself. There's so much talent on the Internet and not all of it gets showcased so it's lovely that DWTV has dedicated a whole post every week, appreciating all the brilliant creations of Who fans; it's just another thing I adore about this site.

Well, they sort of look similar... and sound similar... and they're both devious, tricky puppetmasters... you don't think...?
