    In the episode silence in the library (david tennant) docter said the shadows lived in a forest. Wonder if thay will be in it.

    vashta nerada sounds right to me. Moffat has done it a bit over the top with the weeping angels, ever since angels in manhattan. So im not hoping for them, even thought they’re pretty cool. Can’t wait!

    I know it sounds like the same plot thread hopefully we see more of Clara’s daily life like we did with the Ponds in The Power of Three

    Same, they terrify me

    I thought Krynoids from day one when I checked the story outlines in radio times, and it mentioned the stranglehold of vegetation taking over the earth. That’s what a lot of people might be thinking as we haven’t had a classic monster this series aside from daleks,but could be a new threat.

    weeping angels could be in this episode

    I think it’s something connected to oxygen levels maybe converting the planet into something for a higher species or an ultimate survival

    I’m thinking either Krynoids or Vashta Nerada. I’m hopeful for either one, provided Moffat handles the Vashta Nerada better than he’s handled the Weeping Angels ever since 2012.


    October 9th, 2014 - 10:25pm

    Vashta Nerada ????

    Sounds very silly

    That from “The Seeds Of Doom” was certainly a good alien/monster but probably not.

    And the villain of the story is – MOTHER NATURE !!.

    Yep, she’s re-claiming the Earth from us stupid Ape’s cos she’s fed up with us cutting down the Tree’s and making a mess of our world.

    Good on ya Mother Nature 🙂

    Obviously I’m joking, but if the Moon is really an Egg, then I guess Mother Nature herself is the baddie for this episode.

    Hmm, sounds interesting. My first reaction was forest of cheem from the end of the world (maybe a link) but I doubt it will be that.
