    Anyone else a tiny bit suspicious as to why we haven’t seen or heard of Missy or The Promised land for a few eps.Deep breath we had our first look,Into the Dalek featured Gretchen going to `Heaven` and robot of Sherwood mentioned that the robots were travelling to the promised land.Since then we have not had any references to this.I wonder what Miss is up to… they better not mess this story arc up!

    I was just about to comment and then realised lots of over people have already said this but the episode does look very power of 3-ish

    Don’t get me wrong it looks good, but whatever happened to the whole Ian was the headteacher in Day of the Doctor? Who wouldn’t love to see Ian one more time, instead we have an entirely different bloke as headteacher, did the team just forget they did this or just put it in for the sake of it being the 50th and never mention it again and think everybody else would forget?!

    Spin off shows for doctor who

    Seeing as Sarah Jane Adventures has finished and Torchwood has disappeared, I think the makers of Doctor Who should bring us:

    -Coal Hill Mysteries
    -Paternoster Row

    Typo: ‘similar TO School Reunion’

  • The Temporal Jelly Baby

    September 21st, 2014 - 12:47pm

    It could be good. It could be similar so School Reunion, which was very good, but if it focuses on Clara and Danny too much, or if it’s too similar to The Power of Three (simply a terrible episode), then it won’t be so good. Basically, let’s wait and see! 🙂

    I’m hoping the writers don’t wreck this idea. If the writing’s good, this episode will be great. However, the Scarvox Blitzer might be a bit of a disappointment. We’ll have to wait and see…

    I have high hopes for this episode, because it looks like the power of three but good!

    I’m confident it is going to go in a different direction. Clara and Danny really aren’t the comically married couple that Amy and Rory were, and simply in terms of personality, Danny has been said to take a much angrier stance against the Doctor and his hi-jinks than Rory, who just put up with the Doctor making fun of him.

    That was SMith’s tune.

    Yes Gareth wrote that episode, he wrote the episode ‘Planet of the Dead’ and ‘The Unicorn and the Wasp’ which I thought was a really good pair of episodes even if I didn’t like his other episodes being –

    The Shakespeare Code
    The Lodger
    Closing Time

    The Caretaker should be a good one thou, and I get the feeling it’s going to remind us a lot of ‘School Reunion’ and ‘The Sarah Jane Adventures’.

    It wasn’t really a regular feature to begin with though, was it? It only appeared in the first episode and then again in ‘Remembrance of the Daleks’. This is the first time it’s shown up more than once in a short space of time.

    it looks like the power of three but for clara

    I hate to say it but Moffat has a track record for ripping himself off. I do however have a tiny bit of hope. Fingers crossed that it’s a different plot line…

    I am really looking forward to this one!

    Looks to be kind of boring.
    Gareth Roberts… Was he the person who wrote the monstrosity that was Closing Time? That could have been Phil Ford, in which case the hideous Into the Dalek also has an explanation.
    Did anyone else think the Skovox Blitzer’s voice sounded really weird?


    September 20th, 2014 - 8:36pm

    I agree, Danny and Clara should be different.

    Alternate story line: Pink sees Tardis,since he is
    a soldier, He and Clara knock Capaldi over the
    head kick out Capaldi and deliver TARDIS to
    UNIT. This works because Clara can now
    pilot machine herself and she is soooooooooo
    In love with Pink and will do anything he tells
    her including betraying Doctor. After all,
    He is weak old geezer what can he do?

    I really hope that Clara & Danny arn’t going to become the 2nd Amy & Rory. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind Amy & Rory, but if the characters did go in this direction, then I think the writers were just being very lazy, and just trying to please the fan girls watching…

    Also, don’t understand why The Doctor and Danny meeting is worse then the end of humanity.
