I think new series is very good than last two series
Maybe he was destroying the light bulbs in reference to the light eaters.
Wibbly Wobbly, Timey Wimey
“Even if it kills me”? Is it possible we will have both a new doctor and a new companion for Season 11?
Also, why is the Doctor destroying the light bulbs with the sonic?
No clue on the light bulbs, Dramatic effect? I reckon AsBill… I mean Bill will leave this year, which would be nice, not because I hate the character or anything (haven’t really seen her character yet) but because it would be nice to have a single series companion and also be cool to see Twelve on his own at Christmas, not with a companion. I always like each Doctor to have more than Two companions or companion groups at a time. Example of what I mean by this:
7: Starts with: Mel
Inbetween: Ace (and other expanded universe companions)
Ends with: No one
It would mean Capaldi wouldn’t have a Bookmarked run like Matts:
11: Starts with: Amy + Rory
Inbetween: No one (Other than his Titan comics friends)
Ends with: Clara
Going to do a diagram for how I hope it’ll go:
12: Starts with: Clara (inherited from predecessor)
Inbetween: Bill and Nardole
Ends with: No one
I am so excited by this trailer and cannot wait until the new series starts.
So, they’re in a library. Ring any bells?
Library. Moffat wrote silence in the library and its his last series which means lots of call backs. Vasta Nerada where the villians in that story. Vasta Nerada confirmed for series 10 OMG. But wait, River was also there. OMG the Doctor is going back to the Library to save River and the Vasta Nerada are going to to be the Villains.
And this is how rumours are created. Just like Illuminati theories. I saw some people wondering if a random Alien from a story was a Silurian or a Sea devil when it looked nothing like either of them. The same thing happened with Ashildr last year. Fans thought that because she was so hyped up, she must be someone important from the Classics. It wasn’t like in Hell Bent where the next time trailer massively mislead us, it was just some people saying that it could be whoever with no evidence and everyone believed them. So until its confirmed, pay no attention to the rumours.
So in the end, there just in a library. Not a special library, just a random library. Sorry, but it’s true.
The Living Shadow
If it’s anything, it’s probably just the library where Bill studies.
(I heard somewhere that she’s a university student and they’ve filmed bits in university lecture rooms)
So it seems pretty definite now that Nardole, a character I don’t particularly like, is a full time companion. 🙁
Matt Lucas debunked that. I think he’ll be there alot, but not constantly.
Probably a bit like Rory in s5.
Steven Moffat has confirmed he’s there full time. He was going to be temporary, but they extended his contract to cover the full series.
Nothing against Nardole (well not as much as some people) but I feel Moffat is only doing this to wind us up. He probably though ‘People don’t like Clara? Right, I’ll make a character people disliked into a part time companion’ and when he heard the backlash, he thought ‘Right, Lets make him full time. #Banter’.
(This isn’t what actually happened, just joking around, helps to take my mind off some of his terrible stories like Hell Bent and Name of the Doctor (Don’t ask me why I dislike them, I just do, my opinion, K?)).
I agree. some of the worst dw stories have been produced when moffats in charge
I’m so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wonder what that new alien at the end of the trailer is?!
An Ice Lord by the looks of it!
perhaps they’re going back to some of the old ice warrior/ice lord designs – it may remind people of some of the older episodes
I hope episode 1 is an extended ep so we can get a bit of character building for bill before she jumps straight into the companion role
I doubt it. Clara didn’t really have much, and we’d already seen two other versions of her before the Bells of Saint John.
12th Doctor Fan
So looking forward to this, excited for adventure and not Clara who.Peter looks awesome.
I loved Clara but gosh why didn’t they just let her die instead of bringing her back to life and go flying off into space. Steven Moffat just doesn’t like killing people off
That episode is one of two episodes where Steven Moffat has broken the Whoniverse in my opinion. The other was ‘Name of the Doctor’ where Moffat literary uses a plot device to resurrect Jenny and also starts his Campaign to make Clara all important to the show, by having her jump into the Doctor’s timeline and making her responsible for all of the Doctor’s victories, having her be everywhere in his timeline and also having her tell the Doctor which TARDIS to travel in. I don’t hate Moffat, I hate the fact he feels the need to place his personal stamp (Clara) everywhere in the show.
And not only does he plonk Clara in the doctors timelime he completely glosses over how she ever managed to get out of there as she’s just randomly there in the 50th anniversary special
Yeah, its annoying. Thinking about it, if it wasn’t for that, I don’t think I would hate Clara.
I’m with you on this that story line completed destroyed the Clara character for me and I gloss over it and pretend it never happened because the idea that she told the doctor which tardis to take is just ridiculous, a lot of what Moffat wrote which tampered with the doctors history really wound me up even the war doctor he should have just left it alone the doctors back story was perfect as it was.
when I first saw clara (alsylum of the daleks) and later in the Christmas episode I actually thought for a minute that she’d turn out to be a good character. maybe that she’d even be a character who wasn’t from the present – making the show more interesting. instead moffat makes her appear more important than the doctor. to add to this there were plenty of opportunities to get rid of her – although the some of the episodes weren’t bad I think with a different compainion it might have made things seem fresher. the fact that at the end, after we all thought we’d got rid of her and it was finally time for some different episodes, we have to doctor going on the ramage to save her and bring her back – didn’t see that happen with adric! oh no, we just had to accept the fact that he was dead! then she survives with alshidr and we see them fly off in a tardis. how do they know how to fly a tardis? why does alshildr and clara suddenly trust each other? how does the doctor get that graffiti off his tardis at the end! and going back to the name of the doctor – don’t even get me started. in essence it was good story but the fact that clara controlled almost every part of the doctors life! surely that changes almost every single episode to date! if only they hadn’t dragged it on and on – maybe then I would actually have called clara a good compainion. anyway, didn’t mean to have a rant. kinda just happens when I get started about clara
Such a good trailer, this series is going to be epic! 🙂
Good trailers don’t mean good things. Remember the trailer for Hell Bent? Look how that turned out.
I AM SOOOO EXCITED! I hope we get another full trailer soon with new footage! Not long to go
i think i know some of the episode titles
EP1 “A star in her eye”
EP4 “The haunted hub”
EP10 “The Eaters of Light”
as of IMDB
IMBD isn’t always reliable.
The first 2 titles have not been confirmed
The first one was just seen on a script during filming, so that could just be a working title.
And Steven Moffat mentioned The Haunted Hub in an interview. But that was months ago and could have just been a working title.
The third one is the only one to have been confirmed by the B B C.
Doctor Who Archive
These are the titles so far-
1. A Star in Her Eye
2. The Emoji Planet
4. The Haunted Hub
10. The Eaters of Light
12. Call the Doctor
I’m pretty sure episode 2 is called Smile
Im liking the titles so far
Simile is one of the hint titles on the Books, not the actual title to episode 2. I mean, if the books where the Titles, we would have an episode called the Pilot.
Perhaps it is? A star in her eye was never confirmed.
SPOILERS quoted from my post down below.
The book titles only seem to be hints to the stories, not the titles.
The Pilot: Episode 1, the pilot for the rest of the series.
Simile: Emojis are usually Similey faces.
Thin Ice: not the Ice warriors, this is one where the Doctor jumps through the Ice. (See series 10 teaser).
Knock Knock: A story set in a haunted house. Knock Knock, who’s there.
Oxygen: I have no clue on this one. Set in space?
I also think that Ice warrior is an Ice lord. (Sorry for not putting this in the other one, I just needed to make a different comment in order for my original to post).
I wonder of anymore of the villains in this series are going be returning ones. So far we have Daleks, Cybermen, Ice Warriors, Movellens and Weeping Angels. And that is only the ones we have seen in the teasers.
There is a theory that the titles on the bookshelves are the titles of the first 5 episodes.
“Even if it kills me” – Is Bill pretty much confirming she is going to be killed off.
I really like trailer like this one rather than a montage of clips because there is much more to speculate. Definitley an Ice Warrior princess at the end. I think this season will be a celebration of the Moffat era and the two terrific Doctors that he has given us! Plus Capaldi looks incredible, even more so that the previous series. I’m already loving Bill and after Dr Mysterio I’m really not that averse to Nardole either! God I love this show!
Apparently the lights breaking reffers to the series 10 story eaters of the light
Part Gollum Part Time Lord
Got to be a Weeping Angel between the cyberman and dalek (no spoiler there though, most here have seen Class). That hooded creature near the bottom was supposedly from a Toby Whithouse episode, according to filming reports, so cant wait to see what he does with them. Really hyped for Series 10 now, can only hope that poor Mark Gatiss can redeem himself and do something amazing with the ice warriors, as can be seen through his Sherlock stuff.
Thats exactly what i was thinking about it being a Weeping Angel also if you look directly beneath it, i think it looks like a Sontaran but not Strax
Oh i read your comment wrong, i was talking about the face in the middle right section
C’rizz the Cheshire Cat
I swear that new Ice Warrior is an Ice Lord the way the helmet goes
The queen of the hive perhaps?
I see in the mist (thats a good title) a Cyberman, a Dalek, an Emoji Bot (which i previously thought was a Handbot), an Ice Warrior.
The far middle right looks like a human male, to me it looks a bit like Paul McGann from 1996.
Between the Cyberman and Dalek, an elderly ish man with grey/white hair.
Under him it looks like a cross between Colony Sarf and a Sycorax with its nose missing.
And far bottom right, i can see a distorted face that looks twisted (didnt realise madonna was guest starring this year)
and that last thing, either the new Ice Warrior or a Silurian/Sycorax/Sea Devil hybrid thing?
And i really hope Bill isnt killed off in the same series that she starts.
The one you said looks like paul mcgann has been most popularly theorised as an axon.
Oh, thats a good theory. So ive basically called Paul McGann a weird lookin alien, oops, sorry Paul, if u ever read this.
guess we have to wait another month to find out more.
perhaps with another trailer and a promo picture gallery.
Anyone reckon there’s any significance to the faces on the hanging lights?
If the old cybermen return I’ll officially write a letter declaring my love for Steven moffatt. If class had been marketed like this then maybe the viewing figures wouldn’t have been so low. The whole promotion around class was a disaster which is a shame because it was such a good show
The Gallifreyan Whovian
Wow! The BBC has finally got to grips with their marketing strategy for Doctor Who. I want more! And I knew it from the beginning that it the new Ice Warrior was going to be a female when Mark Gatiss announced it. I could just feel it. I’m even more excited for Series 10 now. HURRY UP APRIL 15TH!
Where does it say that they’re female?!
I think because it looks a little female especially the lips
I think rather than a female Ice warrior, it’s a female Ice lord. Thats just my theory though.
Some people have noticed some of the books on the shelf have episode titles written on them.
The Dalek Whovian
“Thin ice” perhaps its a reference to the unmade 7th Doctor story?
Just makes Me Want another one with actual footage from the series
Or even a series 10 promo picture.
I need Bill promos, New 12th Doctor promos, some not-stupid Nardole promos, and a Series 10 poster that looks like this. And that Series 10 poster would fit perfectly on a nice new DVD Set.
If look carefully i think it is going back to the opd cybermen!!
Shame would rather they had done a new design
We never got a proper exlanation of the current situation of the Cybus Cybermen…..maybe theyre gonna resolve it
From what I remember the Cybus cybermen merged with the mondassian cybermen to create a new model that comprised of the best qualities of both versions. I think it would be a lot more interesting to find out what happened during the next doctor and the pandorica opens as it is never really explained how the Cybermen returned.
It kind of makes sense, this is a time travel show after all, how protagonists and antagonists seem to apear almost in a chronological order in a time travel show is a bit odd. Let’s see some BACK stories to some antagonists!
Oh my God! This trailer was so cool. It has me so hyped.
