Series 10 Episode 11 World Enough And Time Sat 24th June 6:45pm.

Written by Steven Moffat and directed by Rachel Talalay.

Friendship drives the Doctor into the rashest decision of his life. Trapped on a giant spaceship, caught in the event horizon of a black hole, he witnesses the death of someone he is pledged to protect. Is there any way he can redeem his mistake? Are events already out of control?

For once, time is the Time Lord’s enemy…

The Doctor is played by Peter Capaldi, Bill by Pearl Mackie and Nardole by Matt Lucas. Michelle Gomez guest stars as Missy and John Simm guest stars as The Master.

    I think he was. I don’t know whether he thinks shes the Doctor or what, but I saw a 2nd trailer (it was a bit blurry, as it was recorded of a TV screen, as it was aired by BBC America or something) and in this second trailer, the Master seems to be dancing with his latter incarnation.

    Its certainly possible, but until the BBC confirm the new Doctor we won’t know.

    Missy isn’t Susan. Besides, going back to see Susan has been done plenty in the 8th Doctor audios.

    Seeing as Missy is pretending to be the Doctor in World Enough and Time, i think that they are looking at how the audience reacts to a female Doctor.

    Concert thing?

    John Simm may even be playing a later incarnation of The Master, he may have decided to go back and “visit of few of the old favourites”as a certain familiar face once told the Doctor. It may even turn out that Missy is the Master’s wife and only told the Doctor she was the Master just to see how he’d react and if he would treat her any differently as a female.

    This could have been the Master’s plan all along. Get his wife Missy to trick the Doctor, get him to trust her and slowly turn his life upside down. Missy could even be Susan Foreman and wants revenge on her Grandfather for leaving her on earth, and the Master has manipulated her into teaming up with him.

    Damn. Forgot about the war master…

    I have a theory… what if Nardole…
    …is Nardole
    Mind Blown!

    Sorry for my Sarcastic comment, but I don’t think there is any point in saying ‘(insert character here) is the Master!’, unless you have some pretty strong evidence to support your theory. For example: I believe the War Chief is the Master because they not only have the same goals and look similar, but also because it is inferred in one of the VNA’s that the War Chief regenerates into Delgado.

    I reckon Peter will Regenerate at the end of the Doctor falls. Perhaps that is why there is that concert thingy for it.

    I love the poster Missy and The Master that accompanies this episode! It’s the Master version of DOTD! I can’t wait for the finale this year! It’s unbelievable to think that Capaldi has only got 3 episodes left

    Missy will regenerate into John Sims Master and then we will cop a BS explanation of how thats possible, it’s got Moffatt written all over it.

    Nardole is a Time lord,and has had many faces,is he the Master?

  • Rikki Krystal

    Nardole is the master.

    I hope that the Master isn’t asking Missy to give him a kiss. That would be super …. weird.

    But we’ve already seen Jacobi regenerate into Simm, so unless Jacobi makes a suprise appearance i doubt it. I am still holding out that Missy is infact an imposter who imprisoned Simms Master. Not because i’m against the gender change. Just because i think it would fit her character perfectly.

    Am I the only one who thinks Missy BECOMES the Master? Like they didn’t do it chronologically so it’s not the Master BECOMES Missy, but the other way around? Kind of like River Song- it’s all back to front?

    Moffat may be responsible for the poorly written mess that is most of Hell Bent, but he’s also responsible for the absolutely wonderful episode that is Heaven Sent. Let’s just hope we see his better side in this finale. 🙂

    Calm down everybody. Lets just see how this one plays out. It’s a Moffat script, so I’m not getting my hopes up yet.

    I kind of hope The Doctors last words before he regenerates are “It’s far from being all over” just like what the First Doctor said before he regenerated and after the defeating the Mondasian Cybermen

    Maybe we’ll see the first doctor ?

    We see the first regeneration of William Hartnel’s Doctor in The Tenth Planet, after fighting the Mondasian Cybermen, Capaldi’s Doctor is the the first of a new cycle of regenerations… could it be…..Mondasian Cybermen = new Doctor?
