The Hustings of River Song

Okay, that title pun is a stretch.

Also sorry this is late. My excuse is I'm rubbish.

I'll do a end-of-season wrap-up OMNIPOLL when I next have the energy.

The Missy-ing Series Eight End of Season Omnipoll You Thought Was Lost To Time!

Because you didn't strenuously object demanded it, it's finally here: the end of season omnipoll for series 8. That's Capaldi/Twelve's first season, that aired in 2014, running from Deep Breath to Last Christmas. You remember. Missy was the season arc mystery, that Danny Pink bloke was hanging about.... look, yes we should have done it back last year when our memories were fresher. But I've been told memories become stories in the end, or something, so it all works out.

So stretch your memories back and prepare your ticking fingers...

Gigantopoll under the cutCollapse )

Last Season Omnipoll?

So the season proper has ended, even though that feels weird because Christmas is now only two weeks off.

As such it seems like it'd be sensible to do the end of season omnipoll for this season only after wobsmas.

However I note that I never got around to doing an end of season omnipoll for season 8, Capaldi's first year, the Deep Breath to Death in Heaven run, plus Last Christmas with the dream crabs and that.

So; would peple still be interested in filling out such an omnipoll, using their memories of over a year ago?
