    I’d guess that photos this early on means either it’s in some public location filming or it’s not really that important to the stories.

    Well it could be a hybrid Dalek/ Cyberman? lol. well that’s my thoughts about it I know I’m wrong about it anyway. Yes they should kill off Clara.

    Stronger Cybermen? but still keep the current cybermen but these ones are stronger?! 😀

    It’s the “get smashed” robots? From the smash adverts!

    I hope Moffat’s in there. They can get him to kill off Clara, then be thrown into the sea. Then, the show can have a new writer and Peter Capaldi can be himself, not a loving/hating grandad.

    Obviously, it is a new type of robot monster. Well, it looks better/more menacing than the Skovox Blitzer, in my opinion, so hopefully it will have more of a screen presence than the Blitzer.

    Maybe the robots from dinosaurs on a spaceship.

    • The doctors charity

      April 25th, 2015 - 9:58am

      Sure great guess

  • No. 1 Whovian

    it is similar to the The Happines Patrol machines

      Paradise Towers

      Absolutely no resemblance what so ever bud.

    -anyone else think it might actually be a nasty new realisation of…..DAVROS?!!!
    (or what’s left of him…)
    looks like a horribly grimacing mouth below the ‘eye’
    -and that could be the back of the wheelchair behind him!!

    • GuyTheZygon

      April 23rd, 2015 - 8:52pm

      oh -bang goes my theory, not Davros then… least not unless he’s sprouted a full bodysuit 😀

    Dragon from Dragonfire?
    Mark II?

    It might be one of them newfangled sandwich toasters… They can be very tricky to work with and I have always suspected kitchen accessories capable of megalomania.

    Intergalactic post box? Clara and the Doctor accidentally post the wrong item and spend the episode chasing it down.

    The Melkur’s cousin?

  • The Cyber Squirrel

    April 21st, 2015 - 8:58pm

    Looks a bit cheap, if you ask me.

    It’s a Cylon from Battlestar Galaxtica !!!!!!!!!!!.

    Nah, just kidding, I haven’t a clue 😀


      April 21st, 2015 - 4:28pm

      Ohh, Galactica, not Galaxica, god I type too fast sometimes.
