      The Brigadier has no daughter.

      Hes right we do get to see his daughter Jemma Redgrave shes called and she will be working for unit

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      May 15th, 2012 - 5:58pm

      But the Bridadier NEVER mentioned having a Daughter with his wife in the series.

    • booboo

      May 15th, 2012 - 6:50pm

      This comes from the unofficial spin-of Downtime i believe, her name is Kate http://merchandise.thedoctorwhosite.co.uk/reeltime-pictures-downtime/

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      May 15th, 2012 - 8:13pm

      Ah, so I was right then, the Brigaidier doesint have a daughter as Downtime in unofficial as Booboo has said.

    • DW2012

      May 15th, 2012 - 9:23pm

      But it says on that a character called Kate Stewart played by Jemma Redgrave will feature, leading to speculation that she may be the late Brigadierโ€™s daughter. Her character featured in spin-offs Downtime and Dรฆmos Rising.

    • crazy guy

      May 16th, 2012 - 3:54pm

      he dose have a daughter i heard it from another site but i do not want to put it here or it will get deleted

    • booboo

      May 16th, 2012 - 3:57pm

      the problem for some people is that the daughter only features in an unofficial spin-of

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      May 16th, 2012 - 7:02pm

      Well for the sake of argument, let’s just say that the Brigadier clearly never had a Daughter as no Daughter was ever mentioned or seen on screen in the series, and that this Daughter is just a character of the unofficial spin-off that does not have any official connection to Doctor Who the Bridadier himself.

      Settled ๐Ÿ™‚

      problem is there is speculation on sites with both sides of this and its just people coming to conclusions form what been seen, we will have to wait for official info

    Just been on Doctor Who Online, and it seems to suggest that episode 1 of series 7 is called โ€ ASYLUM OF THE DALEKS โ€ –

    7.1: Asylum of the Daleks
    September 2012

    Every Dalek ever will return to our screens to kick off the seventh series of Doctor Who this September.

    I’m a bit concerned at the lack of information regarding the preview.

    You would think a screening of the first episode of Doctor Who would have got much more publicity from people and groups related to Doctor Who.

    I have a worrying feeling that after us all making a big fuss it will just be the pre-title sequence or something and we will be waiting even longer.

      And get a three month wait until Christmas after the series has finished and then possibly another one of those on top of that until it comes back properly? I’d rather get it all in one go, or if not that then with only a smaller gap.

    Doctor Who and Sherlock, two of my favourite shows!
    By the way, I read somewhere (can’t remember where) that the new series would begin broadcast on 25th August.

      That’s some people assuming things based off of the screening that happened last year.

      Given that Steven Moffat was wanting a November broadcast bringing it that far forward seems very unlikely. It might end up in September, but I doubt it will be the end of August.

    I’d remain a bit cautious about this. Only the Guardian has reported this, the organisers have only confirmed the Sherlock event and nothing about the Doctor Who screening.

    We might be getting our hopes up over nothing.

      The screening has not been scheduled yet.

      It’s not even “officially” been announced yet.

      As the Eighth Doctor once said, “I love humans, always seeing patterns in things that aren’t there.”

    It’s possible that Series 7 will begin shortly after this exclusive screening. I’m hoping that it begins on 1st September mainly because there are five episodes in Series 7: Part 1 and five Saturdays in September. It’d be perfect really. A whole month of brand new Doctor Who!

      it might start in november leading up to the xmas special as it was counted as areal episode and not just a one off.

      A mid-November start appeared to be Moffat’s plan, but various other people at the BBC seem to have other ideas and that’s why we haven’t really got any idea when it will start (even roughly).
