    Everyone is saying how disappointed they are with the looks of this but it’s a Christmas special. There will be families sitting around the telly, all cuddled up having a good time, and they’ll want to see something not as serious. I think, for the yearly Christmas specials, it should be comedy. It should be a laid back, chilled, family friendly comedy. Look at The Time of the Doctor. It was a very sad episode, and families should watch something funny, which is why they watch romantic or comedy movies

    The Doctor teams up with a comic book hero?! Just… let that sink in….

    Seems that’s what they are doing. I’m sure it will, I cant imagine the Marvel set out for a long duration on a British sci-fi show, This will most likely be a one off.

    Seems to me the BBC are pandering to the American market, very sad we wait a year and get a comic book hero for our trouble. I hope it stops at the Xmas special and doesn’t continue the theme into the series

    They filmed using one of the pre-existing Dalek props though, you see it at the end just before the infamous ‘AsBill’ part. The clips where only there as placeholders (Although if this scene does appear in series 10 it will probably have new Dalek shots). As for this trailer/first look thing, it seems to be, like the others have said, something else. I don’t think the Daleks will appear in the Christmas story, the companion introduction scene was their use this year, so they don’t need to appear.

    It’s a door with bars on it, more clearly seen at 00:53 and 00:54
