Series 10 Episode 11 World Enough And Time Sat 24th June 6:45pm.

Written by Steven Moffat and directed by Rachel Talalay.

Friendship drives the Doctor into the rashest decision of his life. Trapped on a giant spaceship, caught in the event horizon of a black hole, he witnesses the death of someone he is pledged to protect. Is there any way he can redeem his mistake? Are events already out of control?

For once, time is the Time Lord’s enemy…

The Doctor is played by Peter Capaldi, Bill by Pearl Mackie and Nardole by Matt Lucas. Michelle Gomez guest stars as Missy and John Simm guest stars as The Master.

    Okay, time to predict the overnight ratings for ‘World Enough and
    Time’. I’m going for 3.6 million.

      I’ve read some of the spoiler free reviews and yes it does sound good. Lets hope it isn’t all ruined in ‘The Doctor Falls’, and a convenient reset button undoes most of ‘World Enough and Time’. That would be typical Moffat. Build it into something epic, only to finish it unsatisfactory.

      I’m already sensing a Craig ending where love overrides the cybermens emotional inhibitors and unconverts everybody or something along those lines

      It would be good for bill to die or missy so the Doctor goes into the Christmas special angry and ready to regenerate into a new person and leave his past behind

    • The Temporal Jelly Baby

      June 22nd, 2017 - 9:35pm

      …or Craig returns with Stormageddon (Dark Lord of All) who then proceeds to take down every single Cyberman all by himself but accidentally causes the Doctor to regenerate in the process.

      Really though, it’d be interesting to see how Capaldi’s Doctor interacts with Craig. 🙂

    2017 is definitely the year of the 3 Masters

    Michelle Gomez dominating series 10 with her brilliant acting and character development of Missy

    John Simm reprising the role after first appearing 10 years ago to really shake things up in time for the series finale

    Derek Jacobi returning with big finish as the War Master that we never got proper time to meet 10 years ago.

    I’m shook.

    Im calling it missy is before jacobi because simm still has somthing that he didn in the end of time. Theres no room for him between utopia to the sound of drums. And no room from last of the time lords to the end of time so un less he regenerated later on after been sent back he must be still the proper master. But why wouldnt he regemerate as soon as he got back and if he did theres no room for him to get that item. Surely the president would shoot him in a heart beat, or two.

      Missy is very definitely post-Simm, she has mentioned escaping Gallifrey (i.e. what happened to Simm’s Master in The End of Time). The question is how far along is she.

    • therealwhovian63

      June 21st, 2017 - 5:23pm

      All she said was you saved me and he said i saved gallifrey. Simms master was never ment to be part of the war as he came after jacobi when the war ended so technically there can be more than 1 master in the war. Jacobi would of been in the war when simm returned in the end of time

    I don’t know why, but as much as I’m looking forward to this finale, I’m kind of worried that it’s gonna be weird, disjointed, confusing and disappointing. I think there’s gonna be a lot of weird dream sequences with Bill and disjointed jump cuts between old and new cybermen! I sooo hope I’m wrong because I can’t remember the last time I was this excited for a finale!!

    The BBC America trailer looks really good. Wont say anything in case people havent watched it yet. But everything about the Mondasian Cybermen is freaky. Imo, the versions of the Cybermen that followed the Mondas ones dont have anything compared to the original. Just shows that back when the show was on a budget, they truly knew how to make a simple concept terrifying!

    Im intrigued as to how The Doctor Falls.

      I’m loving all the Hospital imagery from both trailers. The creepy half converted things (called ‘Topknots’ apparently), the Surgical Equipment, the blood bags. I’m really excited, hopefully this won’t be a Hell Bent scenario.

    • Doctor Stu

      June 19th, 2017 - 2:02pm

      I loved that trailer so much more than the English one, the way the half converted people turn their heads slowly. The English next time made it look like a story with cybermen whereas the American one made it look like an cyber man story. In the next time The way the Doctor says we’re going to drop Missy into a scenario and see how she does made me think he was going to run a simulation or something. The black hole setting reminded me of the Satan pit, the trailer showed blue people who have been in this series as well as the master and the cybermen. All these familiar elements made me think the Doctor has orchestrated a scenario where he had a dilemma, and a couple of villains to test missy against so I thought the whole Simm return would be a giant let down and it would all be a simulation or something. The American trailer gave me a bit of comfort though as it seems like John Simm is back for real

      Um, no. The Valeyard already exists as per the Great Intelligence in The Name of the Doctor (he was created by Smith’s Doctor).

    • Exterminator

      June 18th, 2017 - 9:32pm

      I think he’s trying to make Missy good because he’s dying and he needs her to take his place. When he saved her from execution, he actually absorbed the death energy intended for her and it’s been slowly killing him all series. Notice how concerned she was for him at the end of empress of mars, she kept asking if he was ok. She knows something’s wrong.

    • The Living Shadow

      June 19th, 2017 - 12:18am

      Anonymous, yes, but we’ve still not seen the Doctor become the valeyard (at least in Canon) the Great Intelligence only claimed that the Valeyard would be one of the future aliases of the Doctor “before the end.”, nothing about Smith directly becoming the Valeyard.

      Exterminator, ah yes, I’d forgotten about that! Also we already know that the 12th Doctor likes to hide his damage, like when he was blind, so we know that he wouldn’t say anything if he was in danger of dying, so that explanation makes a lot more sense 🙂

    John Simm may even be playing a later incarnation of The Master, he may have decided to go back and “visit of few of the old favourites”as a certain familiar face once told the Doctor. It may even turn out that Missy is the Master’s wife and only told the Doctor she was the Master just to see how he’d react and if he would treat her any differently as a female.

    This could have been the Master’s plan all along. Get his wife Missy to trick the Doctor, get him to trust her and slowly turn his life upside down. Missy could even be Susan Foreman and wants revenge on her Grandfather for leaving her on earth, and the Master has manipulated her into teaming up with him.

      The rumour is that the concert is only being advertised as a fan event for the finale, when in actuallity, they are planning to surprisee everyone, by revealing the identity of the 13th doctor there.
      It would also explain why the BBC are supposedly broadcasting it around the world, instead of just england. The expenses for the fans there would be more worth it than they had thought.

      Mind Blown!

      Sorry for my Sarcastic comment, but I don’t think there is any point in saying ‘(insert character here) is the Master!’, unless you have some pretty strong evidence to support your theory. For example: I believe the War Chief is the Master because they not only have the same goals and look similar, but also because it is inferred in one of the VNA’s that the War Chief regenerates into Delgado.

Not because i’m against the gender change. Just because i think it would fit her character perfectly.
