The Living Shadow
Oops, that was me..
Haha, well I was wrong!
I don’t think so. I could be wrong, but I think that they are hints about the episodes, for example “The Pilot” is referring to the first episode and Bill’s debut in “A Star in her Eye”.
Smiles is referring to the episode featuring the ‘Emoji robots’ (I don’t believe this episode has been named). “Thin Ice” refers to the Ice Warrior episode. (Again this episode’a name is still to be announced).
1) the pilot
3) thin ice
4) knock knock
These are official titles
Anyone notice at 13 secs the bookshelf has books with what looks like the episode titles on them
What y’all think?
perhaps they’re going back to some of the old ice warrior/ice lord designs – it may remind people of some of the older episodes
when I first saw clara (alsylum of the daleks) and later in the Christmas episode I actually thought for a minute that she’d turn out to be a good character. maybe that she’d even be a character who wasn’t from the present – making the show more interesting. instead moffat makes her appear more important than the doctor. to add to this there were plenty of opportunities to get rid of her – although the some of the episodes weren’t bad I think with a different compainion it might have made things seem fresher. the fact that at the end, after we all thought we’d got rid of her and it was finally time for some different episodes, we have to doctor going on the ramage to save her and bring her back – didn’t see that happen with adric! oh no, we just had to accept the fact that he was dead! then she survives with alshidr and we see them fly off in a tardis. how do they know how to fly a tardis? why does alshildr and clara suddenly trust each other? how does the doctor get that graffiti off his tardis at the end! and going back to the name of the doctor – don’t even get me started. in essence it was good story but the fact that clara controlled almost every part of the doctors life! surely that changes almost every single episode to date! if only they hadn’t dragged it on and on – maybe then I would actually have called clara a good compainion. anyway, didn’t mean to have a rant. kinda just happens when I get started about clara
I agree. some of the worst dw stories have been produced when moffats in charge
I think new series is very good than last two series
If it’s anything, it’s probably just the library where Bill studies.
(I heard somewhere that she’s a university student and they’ve filmed bits in university lecture rooms)
Library. Moffat wrote silence in the library and its his last series which means lots of call backs. Vasta Nerada where the villians in that story. Vasta Nerada confirmed for series 10 OMG. But wait, River was also there. OMG the Doctor is going back to the Library to save River and the Vasta Nerada are going to to be the Villains.
And this is how rumours are created. Just like Illuminati theories. I saw some people wondering if a random Alien from a story was a Silurian or a Sea devil when it looked nothing like either of them. The same thing happened with Ashildr last year. Fans thought that because she was so hyped up, she must be someone important from the Classics. It wasn’t like in Hell Bent where the next time trailer massively mislead us, it was just some people saying that it could be whoever with no evidence and everyone believed them. So until its confirmed, pay no attention to the rumours.
So in the end, there just in a library. Not a special library, just a random library. Sorry, but it’s true.
I’m with you on this that story line completed destroyed the Clara character for me and I gloss over it and pretend it never happened because the idea that she told the doctor which tardis to take is just ridiculous, a lot of what Moffat wrote which tampered with the doctors history really wound me up even the war doctor he should have just left it alone the doctors back story was perfect as it was.
Maybe he was destroying the light bulbs in reference to the light eaters.
I doubt it. Clara didn’t really have much, and we’d already seen two other versions of her before the Bells of Saint John.
SPOILERS quoted from my post down below.
The book titles only seem to be hints to the stories, not the titles.
The Pilot: Episode 1, the pilot for the rest of the series.
Simile: Emojis are usually Similey faces.
Thin Ice: not the Ice warriors, this is one where the Doctor jumps through the Ice. (See series 10 teaser).
Knock Knock: A story set in a haunted house. Knock Knock, who’s there.
Oxygen: I have no clue on this one. Set in space?
Good trailers don’t mean good things. Remember the trailer for Hell Bent? Look how that turned out.
