      I rlly hoope it all ends happily for the ponds, although, judging by what has been said about their last episode (all of that heart string pulling business) it doesn’t look like its going to be :'(

      I would say it looks like they’ve made the logo look like the spheres on a Dalek… But it doesn’t.

      I suppose it looks slightly like that… but not much! They’ve changed the background as well. Something tells me it may stay as it is…

      It looks like its the skirt of the supreme dalek from 2008…

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      August 31st, 2012 - 6:34pm

      Well these episodes are ment to be mini-movies, so maybe it’s ment to be like a bunch of small light bulbs building up the Doctor Who logo rather then Dalek bumps, if you get what I mean.

      He did say “Isn’t anyone interested in knowing I’m bringing back the Mechanoids !” or something like that.

      Still, Rule 1:The Doctor Lies, so why should Steven Moffat be any different.

      Silly old Sun Newspaper thou, whoever wrote the latest Doctor Who article in the Sun today needs exterminating, they said Doctor Who starts tomorrow on BBC2 !! . . . . It’s BBC1 you muppet who ever wrote that article !! πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

    on daybreak amy was doing a catwalk or something in their little teaser thing and someone said to her where’s your husband (dressed as she was in the middle of this) and she said i dont have a husband. obviously they get back together for 5 episodes but conspiracy theories…

    They cannot divorce. Rory protceted her for a few thousand years. Unless the Doctor’s life is taking over too much they can’t divorce. πŸ˜₯

      August 31st, 2012 - 4:38pm

      How is it bad storytelling?

      I think it’s a good idea to have a couple who we all thought would be happy etc divorce. Plus, this episode is (most likely) set in 2014 so anything could have happened. πŸ™‚

      Of course the Doctor’s going to regenerate again. Not yet, but one day. πŸ™‚

      They are getting divorced on the BBC preview yesterday there was a clip from the episode and Rory has divorce papers. This is how the scene goes:
      Amy: so I sign these and we’re not married anymore?
      Rory: yep just like magic!
      (Amy signs the sheet of paper)

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      August 31st, 2012 - 3:47pm

      Jim’s correct, saw the same scene. Should be shown during the opening of Asylum of the Daleks before the main titles tomorrow.

      problem is once a clip is officially released by the beeb its no longer considered a spoiler but i tend to agree, would rather have gone into the episode not having seen this clip on BBC news

    • the TARDIS

      August 31st, 2012 - 4:55pm

      I didn’t even know this clip existed. I don’t mind trailers, but I tend to think preview clips give away too much.

    better overall sypnosis[my own idea]

    everyone in the universe believes the doctor to be dead after he tricked the silence a religious order who want to prevent him reaching the fields of trenzalore where his greatest secret will be answered,they kidnapped melody pond forcing her to kill the doctor at lake silencio but the doctor escaped by using the tesseclecta,the mad man in a box is creeping into the shadows once more as he faces the the asylum full of daleks and the end of amy and rory pond[williams],but he still must keep his promise to become the quite man who was once a mighty warrior,but just how long before the truth is revealed to the universe?just how long until the silence discover there number one target is alive?

    that was the better one please reply if you like it
