    People say whats so good about the Daleks,well it`s that every other monster looks too human like,ie two legs ,arms,eyes etc but the daleks are something different,nothing you can associate with really.

    I wish the Dr would get a new companion,Clara has been the most boring ever,the stories always seem to center around her,we need someone with a bit of get up and go.and more Daleks please.

    Lets hope this series has better stories and not rushed and focus off the glamorous side kick…
    As if that’ll happen

      Agree about the stories. Didn’t mind last series concentrating on the sidekick, thought she did really well; it was the sidekick’s sidekick (Mr Pink) that was a distraction.

    If Series 9 is not about the Doctor finding Gallifrey (seriously, he saved his planet which he thought he lost, and instead of finding it he tries to find what’s under your bed?), I will be soooo disappointed…

    Is anyone else hanging onto the unlikely hope that the Paradigm Daleks will be used again? No? Okay… I’ll just… sit in my corner…

      Well its either Series 9 or maybe in Peter Capaldi’s last series he might find his home. As for the Paradigm Daleks, I doubt they ever use them again and anyway I think its time they need a new upgrade, make them look more like the classic ones 60s or 80s

      We need the Paradigm Daleks back, because I am growing a tiny bit tired of seeing the bronze ones every episode. Don’t get me wrong, I love the design of the bronze ones, but I really want to see the New Paradigm as the dominant version.

    Even thou I’ve said this before, I hope series 9 will be what series 8 was not – the search for Gallifrey.

    It was shunned in favor of that Missy rubbish, and how on earth can you tell when it’s someone birthday when they constantly travel in time ?, birthday’s are meaningless if your a time traveler, cos my birthday is on the 12th March, but if I’m a time traveling, I wouldn’t even know if I’m 27 already or next week or so.

    Davros should return for a second appearance, it’s been long enough since the series 4 finale. He should try to find and destroy Gallifrey, while the Doctor attempts to find and save Gallifrey from Davros, plus it would make sense Davros would want to destroy Gallifrey cos the Time Lords tried to prevent him from creating the Daleks 40 years ago in ‘Genesis of the Daleks’.

    What captures my interest is the computer thingy in the picture – possibly a UNIT computer dashboard? The symbols on the left look a little bit Gallifreyan (not quite though).

      Look carefully and you can see some blue lights reflecting off the screen…. Daleks maybe?

      This is only to say that I think that “The Temporal Jelly Baby” is one of the best names I’ve come across – love it!

    I am amazed at the lack of leaks and official news so far regarding the next series. By now we usually know who’s writing what, who’s directing what and a few of the monsters / villians but so we know pretty much nothing.

      Maybe it is best that way – I like surprises.

    • The Temporal Jelly Baby

      Well, as long as they are pleasant surprises, of course.

      Well we know there’s gotta be an appearance from the Daleks, even if it’s just a brekf cameo
