    What if missy isn’t really the master, maybe she looked into the doctors mind and chose a name that she knew the doctor would fear the most and so ‘revealed’ herself to be the master. Moffat does lie a lot.

      November 3rd, 2014 - 8:09pm

      I have a theory that Missy is an anoglamation of the Master, like the Valyard is of the Doctor…

    • Doctor Stu

      November 3rd, 2014 - 8:18pm

      That would make sense

  • Doctor Stu

    November 3rd, 2014 - 7:15pm

    Is it really bad that I really hope people get shot by the cybermen this episode because the army ain’t really that scary unless people actually die to be honest, it’s all good and well jumping on a plane and zooming out of St. Paul’s but that’s not really cutting it for me unless people actually get killed.


      November 3rd, 2014 - 7:27pm

      fair enough!

    One thing I havn’t seen been picked up on yet is : If Danny Pink is dead how can Orson Pink exist as his great grandson? Unless Clara is already pregnant !! or he is brought back from the dead (hope not!!)

    • CJ

      November 3rd, 2014 - 3:53pm

      I bet he is going to be brought back from the dead

    • Doctor Stu

      November 3rd, 2014 - 7:04pm

      Good point actually I hope Steven Moffat sorts that out


      November 3rd, 2014 - 7:28pm

      I think clara may commit suicide to be with Danny, but then loads of stuff will be undone

    • Tim M

      November 4th, 2014 - 5:29pm

      Steven Moffat has a habit of making you think people are killed off, and then find they aren’t. Has everyone forgotten Rory Williams already!

    • Tim M

      November 4th, 2014 - 5:30pm

      In Moffat’s universe (head), people don’t remain dead.

    • Tim M

      November 4th, 2014 - 5:43pm

      …even the Time Lords. He HAD to bring them back from the dead too!

  • The Moffat Paradox

    Some key questions.

    (1)Whilst accepting that the timeline could be charged by the events portrayed in DOTD how does the Master escape from being time locked with Rassilon and the others In “The End Of Time”?

    (2)If Missy is the Master and not something like the Rani how does this not revive the controversy that if it’s established in canon that a Timelord can regenerate into a Timelady or vice versa why not have the Doctor regenerate into a woman that I would rather avoid?(Personally think the role of the Doctor should remain a male preserve.)Would rather that Michelle Gomez had been cast as something like the Rani as plays role of a scheming villainess very well.

    Unless of course this isn’t the final regenerated form of the Master(It’s been suggested before that Steve John Shepherd who played psycho Michael Moon in “Eastenders” and was in “This Life”might have been in the running to take over from John Simn in the role.)Or he’s taken over a (this time female)body as he’s done before when played by Anthony Ainley.

    In ANY EVENT agree with what others have already said about Roger Delgado.He was the Sean Connery of actors to play the Master.First and best!!

    • Doctor Stu

      November 3rd, 2014 - 7:07pm

      I’ve got a feeling that back in galiifrey the time lords may have killed the master (the time locked became unlocked in the end of time) thinking he might just die but then he regenerates into missy and escapes somehow or something. I bet Steven Moffat wont explain any if this he’ll just have missy in the episode just for the sake if it

    • The Moffat Paradox

      November 3rd, 2014 - 11:16pm

      Thought when I looked for my above comment it hadn’t been passed.Would have saved me bothering saying much else from Sunday if I had known that.

      During DOD when Doctor and his three selves
      changed timeline Master stole TARDIS and hatched
      new plot to take revenge on Doctor and Mankind.

    is clara possibly the doctors daughter. from david tennats dr when she was cloned from him this seris the dr dr keeps scanning clara so he must know somthing about her?

    • Doctor Stu

      November 3rd, 2014 - 7:09pm

      I hope not as she kissed the doctor in the Christmas special (different version of Clara but still Clara all the same)

  • Richard Fowler

    November 1st, 2014 - 11:22pm

    I am fortunately old enough to have lived through all the doctors from the very start of it all. I have never fallen asleep before through utter boredom. Neither had the rest of my family let alone my daughter. We hate the way the writer has taken solid storylines with David Tennant and trashed them. They are weak and full of dumb riddles and double speak. For gods sake write something that is at least scary and has a really good punch line. Please stop the arguing between clara and the dr. It’s ridiculous. Its like watching east enders instead of good scifi.also the budget used on the episodes seems s bit thin like days of old when the beeb only had card and sellotape to play with. Listen to the people who lived through them all

    jenna coleman who plays clara wanted to leave the show

    Moffat Can lie but he said clara was living the show at christmas.

    • 100,000BC

      November 3rd, 2014 - 9:20pm

      And who said she wanted to leave? It hasn’t been confirmed, by Moffat, Coleman or otherwise, simply one newspaper said so and everybody believes them. It’s a 50-50 chance. They could have made the story up AND got it right. It could be wrong. Who knows?
      Who… knows?

  • the astronaut of death

    November 1st, 2014 - 2:24pm

    maybe missy is the masters wife

    If all this turns out to be something akin to “Dallas” and the infamous shower scenario then one will not be amused. However saying that, it should be something more memorable and substantial.
    By the way, in case it escaped anyone’s attention the show is being broadcast on the Drama channel at 4:00pm on Sunday. Starting with “The Aztecs”.

    I saw the trailer and now think Missy is the Doctor’s conscience.


    October 31st, 2014 - 4:49pm

    “Clara Oswald has NEVER existed !!”

    Well if that’s true, then who the hell died in the Dalek Asylum and on Earth in the victoria era ?, who has saved the Doctor in his many incarnations ? and was with him on the day all his previous incarnations saved Gallifrey ?.


    Come on Moffat, don’t tell us Clara never existed, she’s too well established as a character to not have existed in the first place.

    • CJ

      October 31st, 2014 - 5:37pm

      I hope I’m wrong but I think Clara has been working alongside Missy the whole time…

    • CJ

      October 31st, 2014 - 5:40pm

      The reason I think think this, is because Missy said in Flatline “Oh Clara, my Clara, I chose you well!”

    • the astronaut of death

      October 31st, 2014 - 7:03pm

      yes but she is in the Christmas special so if the doctor found that out why would he carry on traveling with her

    • CJ

      October 31st, 2014 - 7:31pm

      And she is apparently leaving in it so he wouldn’t carry on travelling with her

    • the astornaut of death

      October 31st, 2014 - 7:37pm

      yeah but why would it go on into the Christmas special

      moffat said the finale and Christmas special don’t have a connection

    • CJ

      October 31st, 2014 - 7:43pm

      Well she’ll could just have a small appearance

  • the astronaut of death

    October 30th, 2014 - 6:03pm

    I cant wait for the cliffhanger moment

    • DalekAgent

      October 30th, 2014 - 7:47pm

      Now this would be annoying

      The Doctor: Just tell me, who are you?
      Missy: Oh Doctor, I…Am….


    • the astronaut of death

      October 31st, 2014 - 12:07pm

      if moffat did that I would hunt him down and destroy him

      but apparently the cliff-hanger is similar to the pandorica opens cliffhanger

  • Doctor Stu

    October 30th, 2014 - 6:00pm

    Please don’t ruin Clara Moffat

    • Cyberman123

      Same! I would cry if she dies. I nearly cried during KILL HE MOON! 🙁


      October 30th, 2014 - 9:12pm

      i don’t mind what he does, so long as it makes sense, has good reasons, and makes sense with the character.
      if she does die, i hope it is a glorious death, if you get what i mean and a heroic sacrifice.
      clara has been great this year.
      plus if she is secretly bad she may be top in my favourite companion list (she has donna to beat!)

    it sounds great but hopfully he will steel anothere regeneration from the master but the cybermen are AWSOME! but what will the next master be like? will the old k9 return? will the doctor get a new companion? well we will have to find out wont we? AND I LOVE DOCTOR WHO!

    From what i have seen and read, the Cybermen have been created from Clara (The Snowmen), Clara’s late mother, Amy and Rory and assuming many others who have died. I really hope that Clara isnt a villaun as she is one of the best companions ever. Plus loving the scene of Cybermen in front od St. Pauls cathedral. Who the hell is Missy?

  • The Doctor

    October 25th, 2014 - 7:17pm

    Rumors Have Been Spread That Missy Might Or Might Not Have A Realtionship Or Be Related To The Doctor. But I Guess We’ll Just Have To Wait And See To Find Out To See and Know If The Rumors Are True Or False. Please Respond And Say What You Think.

    Thanks. The Doctor.

      October 25th, 2014 - 10:20pm

      That’s A Good Point. We Know That Doctor Left Susan With Her Freind Or Whoever It Was But We Never Knew What Happened To Susan Afterwards.

      Thanks For The Suggestion!

    • CJ

      We actually do know what happened to Susan

      October 30th, 2014 - 1:19pm

      what happened

    • CJ

      October 30th, 2014 - 1:55pm

      After the Doctor left Susan, she married and had a family with David and was participated in the rebuilding of Earth after the Dalek invasion.

      20 Years later we know that in the Five Doctors, Borusa captured Susan with a Time Scoop and placed her with the Doctor in the Death Zone on Gallifrey.

      Afterwards, Susan and David adopted three war orphans and named them Ian, Barbara and David Campbell Junior; Susan was not able to conceive with David. She worked as a peace officer who made Dalek artefacts safe. The years she spent on Earth caused problems for them. She did not age as fast as humans and was forced to disguise herself to look thirty years older. In 2199, she encountered the Master whilst investigating a Dalek artefact, and was captured by him. Susan was taken in the Master’s TARDIS to the planet Tersurus, where she believed that she killed him. After she took his TARDIS.

      A conflicting account held that Susan was able to have a child with David. Her son, Alex Campbell, had only one heart. Susan asked the Doctor if Alex could be educated on Gallifrey. The Doctor expressed doubts about David’s acceptance when told that Alex had only one heart. After David’s death, Susan became one of the leaders of the Earth council to help with the planet’s recovery. She contacted the Guldreasi, a seemingly peaceful race that wanted to help Earth. About this time she met with her grandfather in his eighth incarnation and helped stop the Guldreasi enslaving the human race.

      October 30th, 2014 - 2:00pm

      so she is still alive?

    • CJ

      October 30th, 2014 - 2:07pm

      Well it is not clear whether he was including Susan but the Ninth Doctor told Rose in Father’s Day that is entire planet died and his whole family

    • the eternal doctor

      October 30th, 2014 - 4:10pm

      i think she is river song or rassilon.

      the reason why I think river song is because
      in the trailer when the cyberman began to attack missy said “you really need to keep up” in the new clip realised by the bbc

      the reason I think rassilon is because

      in day of the doctor when they froze galifrey, galifrey went outside the universe; so what is outside the universe heaven galifrey ended up in heaven and changed there name to the promise land and when people die they end up in heaven but there is a planet in heaven galifrey.

      after wrighting that paragraph I now think it also could be the master because:

      promise land is really nice and when people die they end up in the promise land it is only people who work with weapons so maybe the master is gavering an army to go against the doctor, so missy gives them a promise that they are aloud to live in this land if the turn to a cyberman.

    • the eternal doctor

    • CJ

      October 30th, 2014 - 5:33pm

      Drwho101 is right, why would he have an relationship with his granddaughter? also Rassilon and the Master? Plus River’s Story is over, she said farewell in the Name of the Doctor

    • the astronaut of death

      October 30th, 2014 - 5:53pm

      maybe they have gone crazy or something

      but the master is a bit crazy so I can see him saying that

      plus river song could return whos to say river and the 12th doctor never met they are always meeting in the wrong order

      her story is not 100% over

    • CJ

      October 30th, 2014 - 6:08pm

      Oh its 100% over! River was always meeting the Eleventh Doctor in the wrong order not any of the other Doctors. Also the Master is crazy but I can’t see him saying anything like that…

    • the astronaut of death

      October 30th, 2014 - 6:17pm

      steven moffat said that her story is done for now . he said that we wont see her for a while but he is extremely tempted to put her in a story with capaldi .

      so I wouldn’t say it is 100% over it is doctor who at not one point did river say that she had never met the 12th doctor so their is always a chance.

      and the master could say that

      think about it he got sent back in to the time war witch will probably him more crazy

      but pretty sure missy is not just missy

    The synopsis certainly raises a few questions,for me at least.Firstly,considering the way the synopsis mentions the Cybermen’s presence,I suspect we may see the Cybermen commence their invasion at the end of Dark Water,maybe triggering a cliffhanger.Also,what does the synopsis mean by UNIT possibly being able to `contain` Missy? Is she going to be restricted to somewhere or what? Please respond and give your thoughts and theories.

    • Drwho101
