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.

    I thought she may be a younger Sarah Jane?

    My theory- Clara seems to be wearing Sarah Jane’s clothes in those pictures, and Ace’s in the thumbnail. Maybe she’s going back and fixing things, appearing to the Doctor as his companions?

    HA HA, Ive often wondered if Bessie and Brum are brother and sister 😀

    Yes, get rid of River now pleaase Moffat !!!!!.

    Why must he keep Alex Kingston back again and again as River Song ?. Nothing against the actress herself, but her characters is so annoying, and now that we know her real name is Melody Pond and not River Song, and that she is the Daughter of Amy and Rory and seems to be part Time Lord in some way, she’s no longer a mystery, just a character who shows up whenever Moffat wants her too.

    From the looks of things, River Song in ‘The Name of the Doctor’ has already lived through the events of ‘Silence in the Library / Forest of the Dead’, so it seems she’s gonna be brought back from the grave every now and then it seems . . . . . NOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!!!!!! 🙁

    In hope river won be in the 50th as she would ruin it!

    I think that would be very good (it’s actually what I thought too) and I think the river may be like a echo in the tardis, like the tardis copied the date from CAL and she can only be in the tardis, like a projection, as she doesn’t seem to move much, like the clara projection in hide.

    From the trailer it looks like Clara gets scattered in time by the TARDIS, there are a few different versions of her in the trailer. Maybe the TARDIS scatters her through time to watch out for the Doctor?

    My Predictions for ‘The Name of the Doctor’:

    Now judging from the trailers released, Synopsis and statements from the cast I think this is what could happen, or what I believe to happen. Now Jenna has said that Clara has met the Doctor more than 3 times, in the synopsis it states ‘that threatens to unravel his past, present and future…’ and in the TV trailer Clara says “I was born to save the Doctor”.

    Now we also got a glimpse of what everyone thinks is Bessie, Clara looks green screened into a shot of old footage, does that mean Pertwee is driving in the old footage? Look above, she’s met the Doctor more than 3 times, she is the saving of the Doctor and his Past Incarnations are threatened. I believe she goes back and saves each incarnation of the Doctor using green screen and old footage, meaning each classic Doctor will appear for a few seconds; which is fantastic enough. So something is about to get the past incarnation and Clara stops it? Protecting the Doctor? This theory also supports the lots of different clothes she is going to wear from different eras.

    Now one way this could happen is that at the end of the TV trailer, there is a red beam thing inside the TARDIS and Clara (I think) runs through it, so she could be splitting herself throughout time, to each era of each incarnation. Now she could save each incarnation up to 7 then something goes wrong with 8 and 9 then it leads to the 50th with John Hurts character?

    As for the Doctor’s Name, I simply think he’ll Whisper it in River Songs ear (She hasn’t been told yet) so we as the viewer will not hear it (And hopefully never will) and River Song will then know, leading onto Silence in the Library.

    As for Strax, Jenny and Vastra…I don’t know, I believe one of the trio might be killed off or possibly two, all of them if Moffat wants to hurt us badly. The Whispermen do look awesome and I cannot wait to see them in action!

    That was a very clever theory probably not likely but clever all the same.

    Part of the description for this episode says that the Doctor has met Clara more than twice before

    …well, it was never specified it was with just the one incarnation…

    unless……….. she is really the doctors daughter, jenny.

    what I think will happen: I think Clara will sacrifice her life to save the doctor from revealing his name making everyone happy but the doctor will think clara is dead but really she is still alive and after having such good adventures she decides to have more, getting her lost in the dalek asylum meeting the doctor again.

    Maybe Strax’s punishment as a nurse is over so he could go back to being a normal sontaran and kill.

    I have a theory in this episode river song dies and the doctor gives her a regeneration but she regenerates into a young boy but he is unconscious. the doctor knows who this boy is and he must not tell anyone .the doctor takes the boy in the tardis and takes him to gallifrey and puts him in orphanage the time lords ask for the boys name and he says the doctor. the time lords ask ,doctor who, the dr smiles and goes off in the tardis

    the doctor now knows his name at first he did never knew it but if he remembers his mind will burn and die and the doctor now knows his name and he is now going to trenserlor to accept his fate and go to the fields of trenzelor and answer the question

    the silent: doctor who ,doctor who, DOCTOR WHO!
    the doctor: river song

    Sorry what? How can the Clara from The Snowmen be her ancestor if by your theory her family line only started with her parents after River?
