      There will most likely be a caption saying The Doctor returns Autumn 2012. Filming begins in mid February according to Moffat. πŸ˜€

    Even though the episode isn’t meant to scary, the scenes in the forest may offer some chills considering that forests are, most of the time, horror related. Perhaps the Wooden King and the Wooden Queen will be watching through the trees with some seriously scary music from Murray Gold…hopefully. Or he could reuse Ransacked.

      You’re right the sonic screwdriver doesn’t work on wood and that was definitely shown in “night terros”.

      December 18th, 2011 - 10:52pm

      Another element to Smiths otherworldlyness (that’s a word now.). Seriously though can you imagine The Eleventh Doctor in Human Nature/The Family Of Blood???

      Matt Smith is not Regenerating it looks like that ring is burning is hands

      It looks like some form of crown. Maybe The Doctor is being forced to wear it or ,as you said, causing him pain. The reason I think it’s a crown is because in one of the pictures it looks the Wooden King (or Queen) is putting a crown on Cyril as he sits on what looks like a throne.

      It’s the queen putting it on Cyril ‘cos if you look at it’s wooden chest it’s got ‘lady bumps’.
