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.

    Clara splinters were first seen in 2012.
    Jenna has been on Doctor Who since 2012.

    I saw the Ood doing something to a Cyberman at the 12 second mark it was only on there for a millisecond. Looks like its going to be a very good story.

    I seen a theory on another website about how this episode may unfold and how it would tie into the finale, basically the doctor will be the one to face the raven and `die` at the episodes cliffhanger. Heaven sent would see Clara distraught but eventually, keeping with the episodes title, missy would arrive with the doctors confession dial which, when opened would include some very cryptic instructions on how to bring the doctor back. Clara and Missy would try and figure what the doctors confession means.
    meanwhile, the doctor has found his way to some sort of afterlife/dimension/zone/ thingy (the nethersphere?) whilst there he some how comes into contact or has a vision of Gallifrey and how to bring it back and may also find away to bring himself back to life, all whilst simultaneously being stalked by the veil creature.
    Back to Missy and Clara, Missy thinks that someone must sacrifice themselves to go fetch the doctor, killing themselves in the process, of coarse Missy isn’t one for self sacrifice and murders Clara instead who meets the doctor (and possibly Danny)in the afterlife.
    Hell bent, in short, the doctor finds some sort of way to back Gallifrey, there will probably be some sort of threat/ monster/ invasion/ revelation etc… but in the end the Doctor also finds a way to bring back himself and Clara, however she chooses to stay in the nethersphere with Danny instead. the doctor will arrive back in this life just in time for Christmas, and a certain Doctor Song…

    Its just a fan theory but i think its pretty neat

    Disagree. Completely.

    Moffatt’s said that it’s possible this is the start of a three-part finale.
    I’ll admit, Moffatt’s word means precisely nothing, but I imagine this’ll be kind of like the Girl Who Died and The Woman Who Lived: two-part-ish, not-two-part-ish.

    Looks like fun – I like mixes of aliens in one story. But may get criticized for ripping off the setting of Diagon Alley from Harry Potter.

    Also how many alien cultures are hidden on Earth. Do the Zygons know of this place? What of the Silent who are supposed to be everywhere? Can we go have some adventures on other worlds again rather than cram everything into the UK?

    Finally, I’m confused that they are departing from the two-party story format that has worked so well this year. It so felt like this week’s episode ended on a cliff-hanger.

    Most of this year’s episodes have been listed as 50 minutes – actually most of them have been about 46 minutes but the BBC want a multiple of five minutes!

    Ashildr better not die! She’s my favourite character and I wouldn’t bear it if she died.
    It would also be a shame that Clara died. I am really liking her in SERIES 9!

    If it really is Clara that must face the raven, then i am goin to need tissues next week! Surely she cant leave like this… Not like this!

    If it really is true, then Clara’s final line needs to be: Run you clever boy, and remember me!

    Really dont want to say this, but here it comes:

    Goodbye, Clara Oswald, our Impossible Girl. You truly will be greatly missed.

    Im 99.9% sure that Clara is killed in this episode ….but looks amazing!!

    Tears have just formed in my eyes watchin the trailer. I know Clara is leaving, but not like this! Not like this!

    First Adric, then Amy & Rory, not Clara! Hopefully that stupid Ashildr jumps in front of her and faces the raven.
    I think im gonna need tissues for this.

    If this really is Clara’s exit, her final line needs to be: run you clever boy, and remember me!

    Goodbye, Clara Oswald 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁

    She’s been in the show for ages, and they’ve teased her leaving many times, but I don’t think I’m ready for Clara leaving…

    It’s 50 mins instead of 45. Somethings gonna happen.

    On a different note, it looks like the episode next week will be fantastic.
