    Hope it’s indeed more out with Timey Wimey and obsession with things like Fezzes and in with a more serious and focused Doctor like Jon Pertwee.Though the brief scene we saw of Peter Capaldi in the 50th special reminded me of 80’s comedian Phil Cool impersonating an Atlantean in Stingray.

    Dont suppose we’ll see any Venussian Karate being used? Surey every incarnation of the Doctor beside the third should be able to exhibit that physical skill?

    Why don’t us Whovians just keep calling it Gallifrey and making petitions until they do?! There’s plenty of us! 😀

    I really think its just them re using the same chair. Sorry to be boring but I don’t think Jenny and Oswin are linked :S

    I even signed the petition!
    Utterly boring, narrow minded, KILLJOYS!!!

    Hey guys!
    another name change!
    “The Gold Guardian”
    “The Ultimate Doctor”

    No, it was MOFFAT who turned it into a childrens show, Matt was just the unfortunate actor who was The Doctor at the time!! (and a damn fine one too may I add)
    BTW I was formerly The Gold Guardian!

    Over 250 stories, over 700 episodes, what’s wrong with a bit of classic? After all, it was just the 50th Anniversary.

    Bit of a kick in the teeth for us Doctor Who fan’s today.

    A planet that was discovered last year called ‘HD 106906 b’ which is said to look like Gallifrey will sadly not be renamed Gallifrey after a Doctor Who fan Sam Manhennet did an online petition to have it renamed Gallifrey, but sadly the IAU [International Astronomical Union] won’t change the name to Gallifrey.

    Guys, I was IMBD the other day (if you don’t know it it’s a film data base) and I wanted to check out the film “world war Z” so I was looking at the cast and noticed Peter Capaldi was in it, and played a W.H.O doctor!!! 😛 pretty cool right!? he’s been been a who doctor and a doctor who!

    I’ve noticed a fun thing about the Eleventh Doctor’s regeneration as well as a sad thing.
    The fun thing is that the Eleventh Doctor went out as he lived: breaking the rules.
    The sad thing is that even though it was in his timeline Gallifrey was saved, that incarnation never lived long enough to see it saved.

    I would like to see a series about John Hurt’s Doctor, but if they couldn’t fit him into a spin-off series, I would have no objections to him join the Big Finish Doctors.

    Many fans have gotten upset at how often the line has been used. While I consider the bow tie a fundamental part of the Eleventh Doctor’s fashion sense and believe the costume just wouldn’t look right without a bow tie, it would be more suitable for the next Doctor to have a different main costume piece. For Tom Baker, it was a scarf, for Peter Davison, it was a celery stick, and for Matt Smith, it was a bow tie. As for Peter Capaldi, we’ll see.
