    Perhaps she is the Cybermen’s conscious?

    Failing that, she may well have been the Doctor’s girlfriend back on Gallifray. We know he had kids so perhaps she knew the 1st Doctor…

    One theory I’ve seen: Dark Water = Evil River. Is Missy the River Song’s Valeyard..?

    Don’t forget, Missy referred the Doctor as her “boyfriend” so why would the Master say that hes boyfriends with the Doctor?

    What if she’s a new female timelord calked the mistress,she doesn’t have to be the master,I always thought we could have an evil new timelord calked the mistress,maybe this is it and maybe she’s twice as bad as the master

    I reckon Missy is “The Woman in the Shop”. Since the beginning of Season 7 there’s been a single, unseen throwaway character referred to as “The Woman in the Shop”. She was responsible for giving Clara The Doctor’s phone number and was also responsible for the ad placed in Victorian England which led them to the café run by the Clockwork Men…..a good as theory as any…

    I personally think it’s the master because all the signs are staring every whovian in the face. In utopia, that was the ‘promised land’ where all the future humans dreamed of going. Then in deep breath, the clockwork droid went to his promise land. The master in the end of time went to gallifrey when fighting rassilon and in the day of the doctor, the eleventh doctor tells about his journey to get to where he wants to be the most, home being gallifrey, so I think the master needs the doctor to somehow die to get himself or herself back to the main universe, and like the tenth doctor said in the last of the time lords, series 3 finale (might have the name wrong) the master can’t resist not to die. That is my theory anyway and in fairness it makes sense in my head, cause thinking into it further, in the trailer, Clara says to the doctor he can’t use the TARDIS, and in the end of time, the tenth is reluctant to give intel on the location of the TARDIS so Clara may still be the good guy in this situation where she looks like the villain in the trailer. Comment below on any thoughts of this, literally just thought it up and I would love to know other information to back this theory up

    Moffat lies

    Okay, I very much doubt Missy is the Doctor, it be weird if she was Clara, Missy turning out to be the Rani is a theory but I doubt she will be, Why would the Master say that hes boyfriends with the Doctor??? And the Mad Monk, I don’t think so! So really, I believe Missy is someone new…

    …But Moffat said that River’s Story is over!

    I don’t want it to be, but I have a *really* bad feeling it’s gonna be River Song…

    In Nightmare in Silver a character called Missy hid from the Cybermen, last we saw of her, she had a cyber hand over her face, which had unattached itself from the Cyberman. Any connection?

    couldn’t Missy just be…

    First i will go for her being The Master second,The Rani i hope one of those,nicer if it is a returning villain.

  • the astronaut of death

    October 26th, 2014 - 2:41pm

    Yeah I think she is a female master

  • the astronaut of death

    October 26th, 2014 - 2:41pm

    I think she is 100% a time lady

  • the astronaut of death

    October 26th, 2014 - 2:40pm

    I wonder why it is called dark water

  • the astronaut of death

    October 26th, 2014 - 2:40pm

    Obviously ?

  • the astronaut of death

    October 26th, 2014 - 2:40pm

    At first I thought she was the rani

    But now I think she is the master

  • the astronaut of death

    October 26th, 2014 - 2:39pm

    To be honest I hope it is not someone else

    I hope it is someone we have met before as it will be more exiting

  • CJ

    October 26th, 2014 - 1:21pm

    Exactly, I agree!

  • Cyber10Dalek

    I have no idea who Missy could possibly be! I personally don’t think she is a female Master because Moffat ruled out the possibility of him returning(although Moffat has lied to us before),I also don’t think she’s the Rani since it wouldn’t really fit in considering she referred to the Doctor as her `boyfriend`.I highly doubt she’s the Doctor and the Monk,and while I believe she definitely has some form of connection with Clara,I don’t think she IS Clara.I believe she is someone new to us but familiar to the Doctor due to their hinted history with each other.

    My theory was that she was a parallel Doctor
    or Clara
    or The Rani
    maybe even the Dream Lord…
    I DON’T KNOW!!!!

  • the astronaut of death

    October 26th, 2014 - 9:52am

    I just don’t know

    At first I thought she was the rani. But then I began to think she was just someone new then I thought she could be the master but now she could be Clara
