    Even if it’s a sunny evening, I will stay in and watch Doctor Who. I try and explain to people who don’t understand my fascination with Doctor Who, that it’s no different to you being a fan of a particular football club. It’s something you idealise, and enjoy when it’s going well, and criticise when it isn’t. Tonight is the equivalent of a football final to many Doctor Who fans. Whether it’s a winner remains to be seen.

    The Mondasian Cybermen are certainly the creepiest Cybermen. But my favourites are the ones featured in ‘The Moonbase’ and ‘Tomb of the Cybermen’.

    Cant wait, over forty years since the first multi-doctor story ( the three doctors ) and we have a multi master one. Shame about the spoilers in the trailers . The mondasion cybermen are still the best and great to see them back. Love it.

    This is the least I’ve ever been anticipating a series finale. And as great at acting Peter os, I still don’t have a the faintest idea what his Doctor’s character is, he has been wasted in my opinion in some of the worst series since the revival.

    Okay…time to predict the overnight ratings for ‘The Doctor Falls’. I’m going for 4.5 million.

    Apparently the new Doctor is going to be revealed sometime today according to DWM, unless I’m wrong, in that case, I apologise.

    It won’t be as bad as Hell Bent, but it won’t be pretty if they bring Bill back from being a Cyberman.

    He has been a superb Doctor. This series especially has seen him reach his acting peak. I think though it is the right time for Capaldi to leave. Three series seems to be the normal average for most actors playing the Doctor. Hartnell, Troughton, Davison, McCoy, Tennant, Smith and Capaldi all did three series.

    I really don’t want Peter Capaldi to go, I think he’s been amazing.

    Not long now. Less than 24 hours until ‘The Doctor Falls’. One of the most highly anticipated series finale. Is there also a possibility we glimpse the next Doctor too..

    On July 1st 1967 exactly 50 years ago, another epic Doctor Who finale was aired. Patrick Troughton in ‘The Evil of the Daleks’.

    I agree pat better than the last two series but still just average

    There is a promo poster that shows the Mondasian Cybermen flying, I haven’t seen any clips of them doing it but it is on the poster.

    I feel the same Tim M, and it sounds like it will not be like Hell Bent’s disappointing mess. My expectations are not on a high this time although I can’t help myself, I just don’t want to be disappointed and it does worry me.

    Ignore lol that was just annother video but looked really real then

    In a future episode, i’d like to see The Master/Missy Regenerate into the same face The Doctor currently has (or vice versa) because i just think it would make a great dark storyline because we will sort of be seeing two different sides of The Doctor (good and evil) but as different characters

    It the setting for the Tenth Planet. The first story with the Monday Cybermen from 1966

    I don’t think it’s the Mondasian Cybermen that are flying. I think it’s the new ones, and the Mondasian look up at them.

    She will get her own TARDIS, and fly around the universe, with immortality forever, with no memory of the Doctor.

    I’m still looking forward to ‘The Doctor Falls’ though. I can’t help myself. I haven’t thought about much else all week, and it’s great. Even people at work considered ‘World Enough and Time’ to be brilliant, and they haven’t got into discussion about Doctor Who since David Tennant! So it’s certainly created a buzz at the moment.


    June 29th, 2017 - 4:51pm

    what’s the deal about the south pole and 1986????
