    I maybe proved wrong in a few hours time, but I feel the cliffhanger might be seeing the Doctor actually back on Gallifrey, with the Time Lord Citadel with it’s might glass dome surrounding it standing right in front of him 🙂

    I don’t mind if I am proven wrong thou, it’s just how I think today’s episode will end is all 🙂

    Don’t forget this years ‘The Woman Who Lived’, cos you don’t see Clara in that one till the last minute 🙂

    Well, apart from the fact that he’s been in every other part one except Under The Lake!

    Thoroughly excited about this – the only two stories previously not to feature a companion figure (regular or one-off) have been two of the darkest and best DW stories in existence.
    In case anyone was wondering, the stories in question are The Deadly Assassin (starring Tom Baker on Gallifrey) and Midnight (in which Donna does briefly appear, but doesn’t fulfill the companion role). All other stories in which the companion is absent or plays a minimal role have had a one-off companion (i.e. Craig, Astrid or Sally Sparrow).
    Also notable mentions to missing stories Mission to the Unknown and The Massacre – The former featuring neither the Doctor nor companions and the latter starring solo companion Steven in a Doctor-style role, both also quite dark from what I can remember.

    The 10th Doctor will feature in this episode. Yet unknown if it is a new scene or a flashback sequence.

    I reckon the two-part format has helped with the more developed story-telling of this season. Besides, I like cliff-hangers. 🙂

    DWM, although relatively spoiler-free, gives a few interesting hints about the finale. Apparently 11 and 12 and (possibly) 10 are what could be called a two or three parter, although maybe not in the conventional sense. Hell Bent features (SPOILER WARNING…..) Ohila and is western in style for half of the episode, whereas Heaven Sent is (SPOILER WARNING…..) in essence a 55-minute monologue/single hander starring Peter Capaldi.
    (Can you hide the spoilers please?)

    Okay, this spoiler HAS been confirmed in DWM – about halfway down the second column of the Heaven Sent/Hell Bent article.

    This has to be one of the best series of new who. Peter and Jenna have been incredible. The stories have been thoughtfully entertaining so far. Looking forward to seeing how it all ends, however i am going to miss Jenna/Clara.

    Wasn’t Androvax a veil?


    November 12th, 2015 - 3:40pm

    If the Veil is just another version of the Watcher, then it’s fair to say it’s been done already.

    Could the “Veil” be another form of the “Watcher” last seen in Logopolis ? If this was true then the Doctor would be spooked by knowledge he was approaching the end of his incarnation, also perhaps he has seen the “Veil” all through series 9 unbeknown to us and that’s why we’ve had references such as “dead man walking” coming from the Doctor himself also I believe he said his incarnation was “a clerical error”.

    This leads me to think that this may be a series arc that we haven’t noticed as we’ve all been pondering over the hybrid and Clara’s demise. Will we see the Doctor regenerate ? Perhaps but with a twist and knowing the showrunner it’ll be a whopper.
