    The Mire and Mr Halo Who – Told you I was right πŸ˜€

    Why is is clearly Davors?

    Actually TheDalekEmporor, it is you that is wrong, the name i used is just coincidentally related to the new monster. The Mire is each first letter of me and my cousins who are big fans of the show Tim Harry Ethan (the) Milly Isobel Ricky Emily.

    It was just a pure coincidence about the monster. We were lookin at news about this series and my aunty (mum to a couple of them) noticed the letter thing, so i started using it as a username.

    But i got to say, really like whovian192’s theory about the name, really inventive, so thanks whovian192

    Episode One and Two are the series finale. Three through Twelve are the back story leading up to said finale. Now doesn’t that make a whole lot more sense than much of the other stuff you see and read throughout the Who Universe? πŸ˜‰

    Actually your both wrong. Its a classic monster and its full name is Mire Creature. Unless the Mires are put into robot suits of armor like humans and cybermen…

    Well it’s obviously when you thinking about it mate.

    The rumour was that Davros would be seen as a child in episode 1 of series 9.

    Episode 1 of series 9 is called ‘The Magician’s Apprentice’, and it features a young boy as seen in the very brief little trailer.

    Put two and two together – CHILD DAVROS !! πŸ˜€

    Doctor Who One, how is the little boy “clearly” Davros? Seriously?

  • DOCTOR WHO ONE

    September 10th, 2015 - 5:49pm

    Well, that boy in the trailer clearly IS Davros !! πŸ˜€

    But will Davros, as we recognize him, be in the finale being played once more by Julian Bleach ?.

    Now that is a good question, and sadly, I wish I had the answer, but I don’t have a Tardis to allow me to travel to Saturday 5th December 2015 which is the day episode 12 of series 9 will be aired, and it seems they are so keeping the finale underwraps because . . . . I believe that Gallifrey . . . . really IS . . . . . RETURNING THIS YEAR !! πŸ˜€

    And if it does not return, then like many fan’s, I will demand Steven Moffat’s immediate resignation from Doctor Who as head writer and executive producer.

    AND WILL DAVROS BE IN THE FINALE 12 EPISODE OF DOCTOR WHO SEASON 9

    Woah – perfect time to watch with the Kids – but I guess it will get bumped till later once Strictly Come Davros starts.

    I hope radio times do their annual synopsis with steven moffat throwing in his whats to come teasers. He,ll know doubt try to throw us off the scent and keep us all guessing by wrong footing us all the way to the finale. Dont follow the spoilers, just speculation for the most part. More fun trying to work it out yourself.

    I think the snakes are supposed to be the badly-cgi’d dragons from trailer #2.

    Or it could be an acronym, describing the Doctor and Claras adventures: The Mission. Is. Really. Exciting πŸ™‚

    Its the name of the monster from the girl who died. Those large yellow robots.

    Is that speculation or a spoiler?

    Hand Mines, leap out of the ground, grab your ankles and drag you under.

    Interesting πŸ™‚
