    I’d like a mysterious arc where some unknown force gives small clues to the TARDIS crew through some kind of communication device across the series,which are clues to gallifreys location…..the force is revealed to be the timelords

    New screwdriver? Yeah I’d like to see that. Though keep in mind both Eccleston and Tennant had the same one except for a few minor alterations. New TARDIS interior? Hmmm… I don’t know… I like this design. More machine like than the previous ones. Though Capaldi wants a classic style interior and would love to see that.

    I’m getting the feeling you want Davros to return. I don’t know why I think that.

    I don’t think they’ve gotten rid of the New Paradigm. Because if they did then that would mean that the entire redesign and every episode and cameo they make would have been pointless.

    I’d love to see Davros return again and he is working with the Paradigm Daleks to stop the Dr and Missy (who now has a Tardis of her own) from finding Gallifrey.

    Let’s hope it’s better than the last series. I still haven’t warmed to Capaldi yet & I’m bored of Jenna. Hopefully Muffet won’t write too much garbage for Season 9 & we can get some decent writers in.

    I think from the title of next episode magicians Apprenticethere probably will have something to do with shona as she did keep on call the doctor the magician

    I wonder when the new series starts?

    I like to see the Doctor get a new Sonic Screwdriver and maybe a new TARDIS look

    New Paradigm Daleks are personally my favorite Dalek design. Their design makes them look like they’re lurching forward, which is intimidating. I hope they weren’t destroyed.

    Michele Gomez hinted at Missy’s return.

    It would have made for a far more interesting season.

    Possibly. Still, with all the off-screen ideas they wanted to incorporate into them, I think they had a good deal of potential. Oh well.

    Definately agree with you TheExtremeBlueTARDIS πŸ™‚

    Yes, series 8’s storyline should have been about finding Gallifrey.

    I doubt the [now old and not really new now what so ever] Paradigm Daleks will be seen again. They was very unpopular with a lot of us fan’s, and seem to have left quietly too.

    I feel every living Paradigm Dalek was onboard the Dalek ship destroyed by Matt Smith’s Doctor in ‘The Time of the Doctor’ just after he says “Love from Gallifrey boys !!” and blows up their ship using regeneration energy, only we don’t see them getting destroyed, and since noe of them appeared in ‘Into the Dalek’ it seems the Paradigm Daleks have gone for good.

    Comedian and actor Paul Kaye has been cast in Series 9 of Doctor Who. he will play a character called β€˜Prentis’ .

    hmmm that name seems a bit fishy as the title of episode one in the magicians apprentice

    the magicians ap- prentice

    Hopefully we’ll get the arc we SHOULD have gotten for Series 8, with the Doctor having to find Gallifrey. I’d also like to see the New Dalek Paradigm in action for once.

    Steven Moffat reckons the series nine finale will be shocking, and we won’t see it coming. Although perhaps, as filming has begun two days earlier than it did last year, we’ll see it a tad earlier than we did…

    I really liked Shona, but I think I’d prefer Ashley. Well, Ashley when she was a scientist. I feel like we need a very intelligent companion again like in the Classic Era (LIZ SHAW!). πŸ˜€

    I personally would like to see her introduced as a second companion. To jazz up the TARDIS a bit. I prefer a TARDIS trio over a duo.

  • When The Doctor Was Me

    She was a favourite from the episode. She also had a lot of hints to being seen in the future.
    1. How the Doctor remarked how ‘good’ she was. Asking all the questions etc.
    2. She had a very likeable character.
    3. She was alone. And the Doctor would most likely be attracted to her. They seem similar yet different.
    4. A subtle yet obvious hint. She kept calling the Doctor the Magician. And series 9 episode 1 is called The Magician’s Apprentice. Many have thought when the name was announced it sounded like a companion introductory episode. And this is just adding to that theory.

    Hopefully still filming when I go to Cardiff and DWE


    January 5th, 2015 - 4:06pm

    Yeah, I noticed the Shona character seemed popular with fan’s, I’d like to see her replace Clara as companion when the time comes, maybe for series 10.

    Course, if Shona does replace Clara, it will feel like De’ja’vu with how it was with Jenna-Louise Coleman as Oswin Oswald in ‘Asylum of the Daleks’ seeing per predecessors Amy and Rory before the Doctor meets the real Clara herself in ‘The Bell’s of St.John’.

    In other words, Clara has met her successor, Shona, before Shona replaces Clara as the companion, IF that does turn out to be the case off course. It may, it may not πŸ™‚

    Ok, there’s been not mention of him for series 9 but, ya know . . . . . . DAVROS !! DAVROS !! πŸ˜€

    Looking forward to this next series. I think Capaldi had finally warmed to me following the christmad episode.

    I also have a strong feeling that Shona will be a new addition to the TARDIS! Which i look forward to! Thats if it actually happens! Who knows!
