Doctor Who – The Doctor’s Wife

Doctor Who – The Doctor’s Wife
Saturday 14 May
6.30-7.20pm BBC ONE

The Doctor receives a distress signal from an old friend. Could there really be another living Time Lord out there? Hopes raised, he follows the signal to a junkyard planet sitting upon a mysterious asteroid in a Bubble universe, populated by a very strange family, as the time-travelling drama continues.

The Doctor, Amy and Rory are given the warmest of welcomes by Auntie, Uncle and Nephew. But the beautiful and insane Idris greets them in a more unusual fashion – what is she trying to tell the Doctor? As the Doctor investigates, he unwittingly puts his friends in the gravest danger.

The Doctor is played by Matt Smith, Amy by Karen Gillan, Rory by Arthur Darvill and Idris by Suranne Jones.

    Actually, it was always hinted that The Rani and The Doctor had some sort of relationship previous to her appearances.

    I have also read that she could be the personification of the TARDIS, Although, I don’t know how they’d begin to write that.

    I vote Rani. I hope the Rani.
    if anyone could hide from the Time War and remember who she is, it would be her. Who do you think invented the ‘Watch’ hiding trick? remember her speciality is genetics and chemical manipulations.

    yes but also I think they stated that the old face has not been seen since the war games.

    either which it’s still going to be a timelord/lady.

    I think it’s Romana. In an interview the writer said that Idris could be an old friend with a new face, so if this is true it’s most likely a time lady.
    Anywho, I’d love it to be Romana, but if it isn’t I won’t mind, there’s always fanfic!

    But remember Jenny was not really a time lord or time lady she was created by that cloning device

    Why not Romana ?, she may have left back in the 70’s, but Big Finish [ or whoever it was ] brought Romana out of E-Space with K9 MkII, returned to Gallifrey and ended up as Madame President of the Time Lords of Gallifrey, and possibly survived the Time War [ Chameleon Arch converting her into a Human or a Human looking Alien ] so she could be alive.

    Well Romana or not. I remember 2 actress Mary Tamm & Lalla Ward played role. Lalla Ward was married to Tom Baker 30 year ago before he decide to leave the Dr Who series. After that their Marriage broke up. Now married to different people. I would love to see Romana return but like this. A New actress should be in Consideration.
