    I feel like this was meant to be a 50th anniversary celebration for the Cybermen with old designs coming back. A late party is better than no party and this looks good

    What have you done?! You’ve killed us all!!!

    Does this mean we will see late 60’s, 70’s and 80’s Cybermen?

  • Sherlock Holmes

    That really wouldn’t work.
    Firstly, he’s much more suitable for an evil role
    Secondly, then there would be the doctor and the master with the same face

    John Simms said in the episode that he was missy’s past and she his future self so no it wouldn’t make sense for Jacobi to turn up

    With the ship travelling at different time rates the cyber men’s gradual upgrades have all happened, hence why we are going to see most versions of the cybermen.

    Really looking forward to this episode a lot!

    They’re doing audio Story series with Derek Jacobs as the war master.

    Here’s what I’d like to see happen.

    John Simms tries to kill The Doctor but Missy sacrifices herself to save him. She regenerates into Derek Jacobi and Simms escapes. Jacobi is disoriented from the regeneration so the Doctor takes the opportunity to use the fob watch on him then takes him to the far future and leaves him there as Professor Yana. Sorted.

    What if the new doctor is played by. ….John simm? He’d be brilliant

    That would be fantastic the Outcast!

    That would be great

    Thatd make sense. I thought that from dark water when i first saw her as missy but then i thought itd be stupid. Its good to see some people think the same things. The reason i thought it from the dark water two parter is that we didnt see a regen from roberts to jacobi and moffat used thw same thing for 8 to war

    Jack 100% needs it return it would be long overdue

    Too often in the past I’ve hyped myself up for a great story, only to be left feeling flat after it. I’ve learned to go into it with an open mind, and just see what develops. The disappointment isn’t as bad then.

  • Doctor Stu

    June 16th, 2017 - 8:11pm

    What if Missy regenerates into Derek Jacobi id be shook. Don’t know where that thought came from but…

  • Doctor Stu

    June 16th, 2017 - 8:08pm

    Wouldn’t it be great if Susan comes back at the end to guide him into his next regeneration like Amy did for eleven

  • Tim M

    I’m hoping the Valeyard comes about from this complex regeneration. That would tie up a loose end of the classic series.

  • Doctor Stu

    June 16th, 2017 - 8:06pm

    Yeh expect the least and then enjoy what actually happens. That’s how I’ve got through series 10, expecting it to be abysmal and then being pleasantly surprised when the episode actually turns out to be watchable.

    Is it just me who’d love an emotional Christmas special with the Doctor just phasing in and out of consciousness and revisiting all his previous companions from his run and wrapping up his story and then regenerating at the end

    I always find it’s best to down play expectations, that way, if you are disappointed, you won’t have a bigger fall from excitement.

    Oh great, thanks for that! If it is worse (don`t see how it could be) I will never forgive myself 🙁

  • The Outcast

    Quote from Pats86: ‘Whatever happens will be better than season nines finale, *it couldn’t be any worse could it?*’

    You’ve doomed us all. You’ve Jinxed it.

  • The Outcast

    June 16th, 2017 - 1:15pm

    I think something similar might happen. I think at the end of the finale, we’ll see 12 become 13 and this will be set just before then with Twelve being guided through his Regeneration by the First Doctor. We’ll probably see a lot of cameos from past people, Clara (who he’ll probably remember) maybe other Doctor’s, Susan, Bill and Nardole (depends on what happens to them tho), maybe River and Captain Jack too?

    What would be cool is if at the end of the finale he died but had his ability to regenerate suspended!
    Then the Christmas special could be a Life on Mars type episode where he has to work out, in his own mind, what he needs to do to regenerate.
    And all the old doctors could be there playing different characters guiding him in the right direction! We could even see 13 playing a part.
    Moffat did say he was working with Chibnall on a different regeneration.
    That’s just what I would do though. Seems silly now ive written it down.

    Whatever happens it will be better than season nines finale, it couldn’t be any worse could it?
    Very excited to see Simm’s Master again and the Mondasian Cybermen. The best thing that could happen is Capaldi’s Doctor regenerating at the end and shocking us all with an earlier than expected new Doctor, Moffat throwing a major shock with the Xmas special being Chibnall’s first episode. (Must add that I will miss Capaldi’s Doctor)

  • Jordan Scott

    I’m really hyped for the finale, I really hope it’s one of the best ever if not THE best! It’d be great to have my expectations exceeded and for both Moffat and Capaldi to go out with a bang.

    So it’s the Doctor’s final battle apparently. So does that mean we will start to see the 12th Doctor regenerate at the end, but will be complicated transformation, that will inhabit the whole of the Christmas Special?

  • Doctor Stu

    June 15th, 2017 - 8:48pm

    Mondasian cybermen are on the rise which means their introduced in the first half which is great more cyberman action

    Nice and short with no major spoilers. A major improvement on the synopsis for Heaven Sent in 2015 (spoiled the return of Gallifrey). Let’s just hope the next time trailers follow suit.
