Doctor Who TV Trailer So is It Bessie?

Doctor Who TV Trailer So is It Bessie?

The TV trailer for The Name of The Doctor appears to a car much like Bessie passing Clara – She has said she has met the Doctor more that 3 times so could this be another occasion.

    Really want this to be good, really upset with how Doctor Who has gone downhill, I haven’t been overally happy since series 5 to be honest, not all episodes have been bad but the series seems to be straying too far from its roots, sadly this isn’t the doctor who that I remember. I want 2 parters again, no series breaks, I want classic stories and not confusing nonsense, please Doctor Who go back to the way you used to do it. Really hope the 50th anniversary is brilliant!

    Clara is the Tardis.

    Very likely. The tree in the background is identical to one seen in ‘The Five Doctors’ (there’s a comparison picture on another website) so I think we will see a scene from all of the first seven Doctors with Clara superimposed on the old footage 🙂

    It good to see Bessie return but not like that. David Ternat or current Matt Smith should return behind the wheel of Bessie. Driving the car again.

    Personally, I think everyone shoud have realised the Doctor’s real name by now. I’ve got a very good feeling what it is. And. As for Clara, I think she is the granddaughter of River Song and the Doctor! Bear in mind that River is always trying to prtect the Doctor. River’s parents Amy and Rory got sent back in time, but conceived River/Melody in the TARDIS, making her human with Time Lord DNA! River can regenerate, only up till “Let’s Kill Hitler”. We haven’t seen all of the Doctor’s and her adventures, for all we know, there may have been a time that River became pregnant with Clara’s father. That’s why we saw that scene where he and Clara’s mother meet due to that leaf. As for the Clara from “The Snowmen”, she may have been the present day’s Clara’s ancestor! And the finale shoud’ve been called “The Fields of Trenzalore” as it stops viewers thinking that his name will be revealed. Since finding out that Clara has been called Oswin as well has made the Doctor seem determined to find her, my theory is that the Doctor’s name is in fact Oswin Oswald, or just Oswin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I wonder how the great intelligence will play a part in it

    If they do bring bessie back there could be a chance to get a bessie to fit figures (even though it will be 3.75″.)

    Just because it’s Bessie doesn’t mean the Third Doctor’s driving it. It was in Battlefield and Jon Pertwee made no appearance.

    I think what they mean is a clone of all the Doctor’s previous companions melded into one, created by the TARDIS to protect the Doctor, presumably from The Fields of Trenzalore, the Fall of the Eleventh, and the question.

    probably not

    If this weren’t the 50th Anniversery, I’d be satisfied with Asylum of the Daleks.

    Clara meeting the Doctor more than three times, The Great Intelligence, Evil Straxx, BESSIE, The possible return for past doctors through CGI, What looks like bad wolf in Claras eye, David Tennant and Billie Piper back with Zygons in 50th, RIVER SONG…..

    They won’t for this one which is a damn shame but the villain is a new villain called the Whispermen.

    If that were true… That would be rubbish. Her touching the lives of the various Doctors is one thing. But actually being all the companions… Not liking that.

    there was a sign like that for k-9 “do not touch” so I touched it 😆


    May 11th, 2013 - 11:22pm

    that would be really clever

  • MasterKasterborous

    I saw her at the Gaydon Motor Museum a couple of years ago and there was a sign from the Doctor saying that we couldn’t sit in her as she’d got to old but said that we could take photos!

    This was the same sort of theory I considered when I saw her clothes too

    when I was in the London experience, I touched the foam thingy on the bottom of K-9 I’d probably try and sit in Bessie! 😆

    I have a theory guys… from the latest TV trailers, Clara has been seen wearing similar outfits to that of Sarah Jane Smith and other Companions… could she somehow be all the Companions, created by the TARDIS to ‘protect’ the Doctor and make sure he saves the Universe? 😀

    well jenna said that the doctor hasents just met her 3 times so maybe she has met all of the doctors.

    I think they are going to use some old stock footage from the classic episodes to be honest

    We won’t see the 3rd doctor just a guy dressed as him making it look like it And I think all the costume changes are to do with her splitting through every doctor

  • im still not here

    it does look like that
