Face The Raven 21st November at 8.10pm to 9pm

Doctor Who: Face The Raven

The Doctor and Clara, with their old friend Rigsy, find themselves in a magical alien world, hidden on a street in the heart of London.

Sheltered within are some of the most fearsome creatures of the universe… and Ashildr (Maisie Williams)! With a death sentence hanging over their heads, not all of the intruders will get out alive.

    Oliver guy Adric died on the ship because he was still on board the ship. He did not have a teleporter.

    The muted screams made it cool and dramatic and even more chilling. In essence, a crazy pigeon flew into her and pecked out her innards, but yeah, we can overlook that.

    Lol. Yeah Diner!Clara is probably an echo. Additionally, there are suspicions that she works in the same diner that the eleventh doctor visited before he got “killed” by “river” at lake silencio. Maybe, if diner Clara does die by saving The Doctor’s life, it’s because she was maybe just strolling by silencio and astronaut!River’s gun Ray deflected off the Doctor’s bow tie and hit her.

    Clara. Come on man. Why? I guess it wasn’t impossible for her to die. I’m Doctor Who’s number 1 fan and I didn’t see this coming. It was so sad. I’m just glad they muted her screams because I had zero tears left…

    I’m going to miss soufflé girl.

    So sad… over-dramatised? maybe…
    but didn’t the setting look a bit like Harry Potter?!!

    There is that clay animation of him surviving, landing on Earth and then getting eaten by a dinosaur on the ‘Earthshock’ DVD.

    Lol 😀 I’m sorry but I fell out of my chair when I read your comment… No offence but that has to be the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard, The Clara dressed as the waitress will either be the real Clara or like people are saying an echo of her

    I didnt mean it to sound like that.

    Well, goodbye to the real Clara tonight. Clearly the Clara in the finale dressed as a waitress in an American Diner is an echo of the real Clara [like Oswin Oswald and Clara Oswin Oswald was], and like those other echo’s, it’s this waitress Clara’s job to do what all the others was born to do, to save the Doctor !.

    Now you might say to me “no, because the echo’s was made by the real Clara to fix the Doctor’s timeline after the Great Intelligence muddled it up”, but a recent Doctor Who Magazine comic-strip suggests otherwise.

    So tonight we say goodbye to the real Clara, but in the finale, she’ll turn out to be an echo who may or may not die to save him [the one in a recent DWM comic-strip did not die but nearly did] and that will the last time we see Clara in the form of an echo of herself.

    I like that, because we first met Clara through 2 echo’s, to end her time with the Doctor with an echo seems a fitting way to say goodbye to Clara.

    Don’t think Zygon, it’s too obvious, plus why would a Zygon want to disguise itself as Clara in an American Diner anyway ?.

    Maybe this clara is a zygon and the real clara left to have a new job

    Maybe the clara as a dinner lady is actually a zygon who helped the dr remember the real clara he lost

    She isnt immortal, she just can’t die of old age since she isn’t ageing. She is able to heal much quicker than most but if she is killed too quickly then she is dead. For good.

    I think they’re making Clara’s sacrifice/final exit too obvious.
    Either Ashildr (who is, lest we forget, immortal, and therefore may be happy to finally die OR would not be killed by the Raven and therefore no sacrifice would be made) faces the raven instead or there is a twist e.g Clara carries on after death as a final impossible girl splinter whom we meet in episode 12.

    I think the Ood at the 12sec mark is using a angle grinder(cutting tool) to remove the Cybermans head. I don’t think their electrocuting each other. This episode looks the best of the Capaldi era I like Capaldi as the Doctor, but i think he is being let down by poor writing.

    Amy and Rory left, lived a full and happy life, then died of old age; Adric, Katarina and Sara Kingdom died during their adventures with the Doctor. Given that it’s a show about time travel, Amy and Rory “died” just as much as Nyssa or Tegan or Mel or Rose or Martha.

    Also, as I think was explained in the episode, the angel was ‘weak’ and after it had sent Amy back it became a statue

    We never saw Adric die. The ship exploded, but there is no proof Adric’s body was on it. He may have teleported out.

    And with Amy and Rory, we see their gravestones next to the Weeping Angel (which by the way, does not move a single muscle when the Doctor and River are not looking at it, and there supposed to be faster than you can imagine). Guess it wanted a stroll in NYC
