    I hope this doctor gets good companions I wasn’t mad about most of matt Smith’s. I loved amy rory and river even mr potato head but could have done without the rest. Loved most of tennants companions but you’ll nwver beat david Tennant. But have to say will miss Matt Smith too as I do all doctor’s that have gone before.

    The main difference between Steven’s and Russels storys is that Russel went straight into the action where as steven takes a while!

    8.10 the ghosts of Pompeii features return of the pyrovile and a fan favourite in a cameo this is a rumour but if it is true who do you think the cameo-ee is I reckon either Donna the tenth doctor or jack

    I think this series 8 will be different story
    For this year also see more different
    monster include old , monster

    I really hope there is a dalek civil war, either bronze daleks vs paradgim daleks or they create a new dalek but these daleks see them as weak and try to destroy them resulting in dalek civil war, I think it would just make the daleks more intresting again

    • Eternal

      February 1st, 2014 - 10:35pm

      I dont think that that would really work. The Paradigm Daleks are pure Dalek so they created more pure Daleks in the form of the Time War Daleks as we know them – so they are all pure now.

      Except of course if the Daleks launch a new attack on Gallifray and the Daleks that were trapped on Gallifray when the Doctor moved it rebel against the newer ones.

    Only the seventh of January. This is awful. We are going to have to wait for months until the new series.

    Is he the first doctor who that has appeared in the series as another character?

      Nope, Colin Baker appeared as Maxil in Arc of Infinity. Pat Troughton palyed Salamander in Enemy of the World. William Hartnell played a villain in the Massacre of St. Bartholemew’s Eve.

      January 30th, 2014 - 4:33pm
