Doctor Who: Coming Soon in 2013













  • Doctor J

    January 2nd, 2013 - 6:16pm

    I can’t wait for series 7 part 2 the monsters look scary and the Cybermen brilliant.

    This is my theory if clara should be the tardis maybe that’s why she keeps popping up in the unusual places hope I’m right

    cannot wait for doctor who to start back i seen matt and jenna filming in their new outfits for this years episodes cannot wait to see the stunt on screen id like to see the skari return as i dont think that we have seen the last of them because if they were so feared they would not be easily defeated

    The master has to return!!

    • Robert

      January 24th, 2013 - 2:10am

      well we’ll just have to wait and see I hope you’re right but theres no telling what steven moffat might have up his sleeve

  • Lord rassilon of gallifrey

    January 1st, 2013 - 2:16pm

    Why is there no kovarian
    Or river song
    Or the silence
    Or trenzalore in the trailer

      January 2nd, 2013 - 5:43pm

      they will keep it secret


      January 3rd, 2013 - 11:10am

      kovarion should be involved though. moffat makes plots but then doesnt finish them for ages.

    Now I’m getting older I was going to stop watching who after this Christmas special but this trailer has changed all of that simply amazing Moffat has certainly upped his game after these 2 and a half not so great who story lines I don’t know about you guys but I think doctor who is restoring what makes it great
    I can’t wait

    What makes Clara so different from the other companions? The only thing that really separates her from the rest is the fact that she has died twice. This will be the reason for encounters with many species who all want the girl twice dead for themselves. Clara will, in my opinion, be the creation of many adventures for The Doctor. I’m excited to see what’s in store for this season.


      January 6th, 2013 - 6:16pm

      I think your forgetting that rory Williams died like three times

    I hope river song returns and I want the following monsters to return:
    Cybermen- ALL READY ARE!!!!!!!!!!!!- MY FAVOUTIE ALIEN
    I have had enough of Daleks i hope they dont return
    I want I have also had enough of weeping angels
    I want some silurians and sontaran an army.

    • Doctor Stu

      January 1st, 2013 - 5:45pm

      I agree but I don’t see how Moffat can get around it as the Silurians helped the Doctor at Demons run and the Doctor is friends with Strax

    • Doctor Stu

      January 1st, 2013 - 5:47pm

      Also I love the weeping angels. I would love to see how Clara handles being around them.

    • Scott the Raptor

      January 2nd, 2013 - 4:41pm

      Yes but Strax was punished by the sontarans so they hate Strax anyway.

    December 31st, 2012 - 3:06pm

    I was born in 1968 and have always enjoyed Dr who. I am SO THANKFUL that the series was revamped in the 90’s by people who loved it and wanted to remould and revitalise the series. I cannot miss and episode and love the “witty put downs” and comdeic parts as much as the new planets and creatures, well done!!!!!

    • carrie

      January 3rd, 2013 - 11:47am

      I too was born in 1968 and have never missed a show, while I can’t wait for the new series to start, it would be great if abc would take us all back to the beginning. Why can’t every day be Dr Who day during the week, am I not the only one who want’s to see it from the start

  • buchanon

    December 31st, 2012 - 1:32pm

    who is Clara? why is she so special? is it possible, in his next incarnation, near the very end of his life, he decided to create the ultimate companion for him self and sent her across the time space for his younger self to meet?

    or is she a time lady? is she susan? is she jenny? an offspring of these? (i know there was no regeneration) but according to the awesome book iv got called “the time travelers almanac” jenny was resurrected by “the source” possible before she had chance to regenerate.

    or like my dad said to me (hes watched it from the very beginning nearly 50 years ago) and said she could possible be the human segment of the “Key to Time” this according to my research is my favorite option.

    id love to know what everyone else thinks about my ideas.

    • outnumbered

      January 1st, 2013 - 11:15am

      it would not be jenny as DID U SEE THAT KISS

    • nobody

      January 2nd, 2013 - 12:54pm

      no because moffat said she wouldn’t be complicated like Amy and have a time lord daughter who marries the doctor or whatever, and she’d just be a generally great human

  • Clara is ?

    December 31st, 2012 - 10:58am

    I bet she’s romana

  • McGann is the Doctor

    December 30th, 2012 - 11:22pm

    The Doctor’s outfit and the Cybermen look great.

    Tell me, are these going to be the big celebratory episodes for the anniversary ❓

    • McGann is the Doctor

      December 30th, 2012 - 11:25pm

      Also, the Doctor kinda reminds me of Tom Baker when he says “She’s not possible!”

    • Dr who who

      January 2nd, 2013 - 10:59pm

      No, there will be another series airing before the 50th and filming for it will start around Easter

  • Trenzalore

    December 30th, 2012 - 8:06pm

    Who will be the big bad,will it be the master,omega,the silence,the time lords or the great intelligence

    • The TARDIS

      December 31st, 2012 - 1:48pm

      I hope it isn’t the silence – this is the fiftieth anniversary for doctor who and I’d be really annoyed if it was all about Moffat’s arc. Moffat needs to remember that this is about the whole history of Doctor Who, not just the history of his era. Hopefully he’ll put his story ad on hold for the anniversary story rather than being self-indulgent.

  • Trenzalore

    December 30th, 2012 - 8:02pm

    Here is my idea for the 50th anniversary

    I believe there should be old doctors,lots of monsters captured in a prison on trenzalore,which should be a religious place on gallifrey,as a trap to destroy all the doctors ,it should be on trenzalore,a religious place on gallifrey,the silence return,and the story focuses on a battle,the regeneration of the eleventh doctor and the first question and a big scene at the end where All the doctors’s regenerate at the same time,which reboots the universe

    The silence would then become a recurring enemy to last a long time on doctor who,they would be revealed to be killed off in this episode somehow ,but return later as the mystery unfolds in years to come,and become a recurring enemy

    What would you want to happen


      December 31st, 2012 - 3:16pm

      Any epsisodes where the planet is not what it first appears, such as the living spaceship that transported humans from a decaying earth.(great episode) The stranger the rules of he planet, the better, what about the line “the gravity of the situation” where gravity cannot be established, due to some madman or other, making it a privilege and not a right. I love it when “things are not as they seem” for example the living organism inside of each darlek, i think thats wonderful.

    Proof that there will be an episode in the new series called journey to the centre of the tardis.

    It turns out the time lords are not dead,as that was Russell t Davies,we are now in Steven Moffat era,so he can do what he likes,I hope. The master returns,and Russell t Davies story line goes in the bin,because it was stupid idea,so I hope the master returns,even if one writer made a let down,but I’m sure it can change,there still enemies after all,the master will return,I’m telling you and all that silly stuff that rassilon made him was all wrong

    • doctorwhoone

      December 30th, 2012 - 3:58pm

      It was not a stupid idea. Russell created the Time War and the death of the Time Lords as a back story to help introduce new viewers to the Doctor, and I for one think it was a stroke of genius on Russell’s part.

      It was either that or have the Doctor appear in a brand new series as if he had never left our screens in 1989.

      It would have confused a lot of viewers in the episode ‘Rose’ if it started with Paul McGann regenerating inside the Tardis to become Christopher Eccleston, leaving a lot of new viewers at the time unfamiliar with the concept of regeneration into saying “Ok, what the heck what that all about ?”.

      Good old Russell 😉

      January 2nd, 2013 - 1:06pm

      Quite right, as much as I prefer Steven Moffat and others as writers, I have to say I’m satisfied with how he brought back Doctor Who (Even if the companion was bad)

    Maybe it is revealed that the great intelligence is faked and hiding the real villian,omega who reveals he blew up the tardis and is involved in the trenzalore scheme and involved with the silence,clara is revealed to be his key into the world,his spy

    • doctorwhoone

      December 30th, 2012 - 8:16am

      Omega died in ‘Arc of Infinity’ so he defiantly won’t be coming back, plus fan’s thought he was in ‘The Doctors Wife’ but was not.

      yes but pretty much every recurring villian “died”
      but came back

      January 2nd, 2013 - 12:08pm

      Omega didn’t actually die for certain, he was sent back to the antimatter universe. And he survived to star in a big finish adventure as well.

    Is there any news on the snowmen DVD yet? Or will it be part of the series 7 part 2?

    • doctorwhoone

      December 30th, 2012 - 8:16am

      Christmas episodes tend to be sold both separately and as part of a full series box set.

    • The TARDIS

      December 31st, 2012 - 1:42pm

      I was just wondering because I haven’t seen anything about one yet. It’s possible that they will release it in a box set with the second half of series 7 unfortunately, which could mean a long wait until we can get the snowmen on DVD.

      They’re often released around march but last year we got it very quickly when it came out to none of us expecting in January.

      December 29th, 2012 - 3:47pm

      Well Matt Smith won’t be regenerating into anyone new in 2013 as he has said he is staying for at least 2 or 3 more years.

      I wouldn’t get your hopes up either about a multi-Doctor story featuring all living actors to have played the part either, as for one thing, Sylvester McCoy has said he has not been asked to return as the 7th Doctor.

      David Tennant on the other hand might be, and is prepared to return at a moments notice.

      Christopher Eccleston don’t care about Doctor Who now so I wouldn’t bother with him the miserable so and so.

    • The Truth

      January 1st, 2013 - 3:01pm

      Well that would be lovely but they aged. 3 of them are dead, anyway. I bet you didn’t know their names, so don’t call the ‘old doctors’. William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Slyvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Matt Smith. Look it up in a book, I’m right!
