      October 28th, 2012 - 4:46pm

      thats 1 way it could have ended

  • Miss Amy already

    October 8th, 2012 - 7:48am

    I really don’t care who the next companion is. Amy was the best companion since Sarah Jane. Why do these stupid writers need to kill people off all the time. I hope the Angels get them, and soon.

      No Amy was the worst since Sarah jane

  • Fields of Trenzalore fall of the elevent silence will fall the question dr who

    October 6th, 2012 - 7:47am

    Moffat said the doctor meets the new companion in an unexpected place ,the Dalek asylum,so she is the companion,we will discover all about Oswin who may have changed her name to Clara.i think there the same asthe character is a big mystery

  • The Moffat Paradox

    October 5th, 2012 - 7:07pm

    Never mind Christmas.

    I just want to know what we can expect in the rest of season 7.

    The reference to the Zygons in The Power Of Three.Is that a hint they will be back?

    Heard something about a possible return of the Ice Warriors as well.Maybe then we might even see Yeti’s again.

    How about also bringing back the original Silurians, i.e the non human looking ones like the Sea Devils as well?

    • Fields of Trenzalore fall of the elevent silence will fall the question dr who

      October 6th, 2012 - 7:42am

      The silence,trenzalore ,the fall of the eleventh and the question

    • The TARDIS

      October 6th, 2012 - 10:07am

      Hopefully not at the end of THIS series – that would mean Matt Smith is leaving! (Which he isn’t.)

    • Fields of Trenzalore fall of the elevent silence will fall the question dr who

      October 7th, 2012 - 8:56am

      Fall of the eleventh might not mean regeneration may be something else,a war,the doctor’s fall meaning his a good man goes to war

      October 7th, 2012 - 1:34pm

      well matt has has sign a contracct for 2014

    • McGann is the Doctor

      October 19th, 2012 - 11:26am

      Fall of the eleven, not the eleventh.

      And as for returning monsters, I remember reading that in this year there will be monsters from the 60s and 70s (Ice Warriors fit that description) and they will be very modernised (that may or may not be a good thing, it has to atleast look like an Ice Warrior). ❗

      October 5th, 2012 - 6:12pm

      How would that work? But I do think the doctor should have a alien companian

  • The Supreme Dalek

    October 1st, 2012 - 8:35pm

    Does anyone think Steven Moffat is trying to make the Doctor’s companions stay longer than one series, like the Classics?
    I’m basically saying this because since he took over, back in Series 5, so many changes have been made. It is quite unusual for the Ponds to have bad two and a half series, so this is a guess? I think Clara/Oswin [Jenna-Louise Coleman] might stay for two series… Anyway, I would actually like Moffat to do that, cause sometimes there’s some companions I really like but they only stay for one single series. Take Donna for example! (No, not selfish Martha or annoying Rose, just don’t even THINK about it…).


    • The Supreme Dalek

      October 1st, 2012 - 8:36pm

      Where I said about the Ponds, I ment to say “have *had two and a half series” not “bad! 😳

    • McGann is the Doctor

      October 19th, 2012 - 11:27am

      I definitly think it’s better to have companions stay on as long as they have an interesting story and relationship with the Doctor.

      A companion a season shouldn’t be a rule.

  • that guy is from horrid henry the movie

    October 1st, 2012 - 10:00am

    i can copy that

    • william stucken

      October 4th, 2012 - 8:11am

      Why did they put him in.

    Hopefully there will be a longer and better trailer on Children in Need night. Fingers crossed!

    i think the doctor rescued oswin from the ship in AOTD before she was turned into a dalek and her whole background changed and somehow she turned up in the past :/

    i really dont know


    • the astronaut of death

      September 30th, 2012 - 8:13pm

      the oswin in the xmas special is a reletive or decendant to the oswin in AOTD

    • Dalek Prime Minister

      October 2nd, 2012 - 6:40pm

      I don’t get why people are saying this, a ancestor that is identical to her, it’s silly if it is, as it is highly unlikely!

    • the astronaut of death

      October 3rd, 2012 - 7:42pm

      well the actress who played marther

      played martha

      and her cousen

    • xylok emperor

      October 5th, 2012 - 1:15am

      wouldn’t it be good if oswin is the same oswin from AOTD at an earlier point in her time stream and when she leaves the doctor’s last words to her whenever she leaves is “Remember Me”

    • the astronaut of death

      October 7th, 2012 - 7:28pm

      i get what you mean but i dont want another river song the doctors first meeting with her is her death

      October 7th, 2012 - 7:32pm

      come on they got to be the same why introduce her that is part of the companion mystery why is clara oswin oswald a dalek.i bet her name is clara oswin oswald

  • AlphaOmega

    September 30th, 2012 - 10:01am

    Have the BBC actually confirmed Colemann’s character name, yet?

    • booboo

      September 30th, 2012 - 10:14am

      no not yet

    • AlphaOmega

      September 30th, 2012 - 10:48am

      Then why does everyone keep calling her Clara?

    • booboo

      September 30th, 2012 - 10:49am

      because the name was heard during filming


      September 30th, 2012 - 11:45am

      I saw that name in weekend magazine with the daily mail on the 1st of september.

    • AlphaOmega

      September 30th, 2012 - 12:57pm

      Is that it? That could be anyone.

    • Black TARDIS

      September 30th, 2012 - 1:57pm

      I thought it was Oswald Oswin or Clara Oswin

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      September 30th, 2012 - 4:13pm

      Like Martha Jones and her cousin Adeola both being played by Freema Agyman, the same is the case with Jenna-Louise Coleman.

      In ‘Asylum of Daleks’, she played a woman called Oswin Oswald, but from now on, starting Christmas this year, she will be playing the actual companion character she auditioned for in the very first place who is called Clara Oswin.

      In this case, the 2 women are related, perhaps with Clara being an ancestor of Oswin Oswald herself, so in other words, the Doctor met a descendant [Oswin Oswald] of his next companion [Clara Oswin], but both played by Jenna-Louise Coleman πŸ™‚

    • that guy is from horrid henry the movie

      October 1st, 2012 - 10:04am

      ive heard of you booboo but i thought oswin was a dalek

    • booboo

      October 1st, 2012 - 10:25am

      she was, but we dont know yet what the relationship is to the new companion

    • william stucken

      October 4th, 2012 - 8:09am

      Well I think it`s oswin.

  • Fields of Trenzalore fall of the elevent silence will fall the question dr who

    September 30th, 2012 - 9:35am

    I hope it is good do you think there will be a story arc,it is most likely to do with the daleks and the first question

  • Fields of Trenzalore fall of the elevent silence will fall the question dr who

    September 30th, 2012 - 9:33am

    My idea synopsis for part 2

    The ponds have gone,left the doctor forever,but this man needs a new companion,no better than the woman in red dress,Clara (Oswin)’the doctor arrives in Victorian times and he needs to repair his tardis,so he is stuck there and lives with vastra,strax and Jenny and his new friend,as they solve mysteries.but he must solve the mystery of the Dalek lady,a woman who has been wiping his memories from the universe.can the doctor save her from the Dalek fate.but if he does won’t they question him,because the time is coming as the fall of the 11th awaits them all.

  • mr

    September 30th, 2012 - 9:31am

    it’s oswin

  • Whovian

    September 29th, 2012 - 9:15pm

    YAY! A companian from a time thats not modern day!!

    • Mr Evil Fez

      September 29th, 2012 - 9:18pm

      I said the same thing when I saw this trailer at the end of TATM!

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      September 30th, 2012 - 7:34am

      I’m glad Clara Oswin won’t be from our time, I’m fed up with the fact that every companion from Rose up until Amy and Rory have been all modern day people from our blooming modern technology mad world of the 21st Century, it’s about time there was a companion not from our time, and now we have one.

      Thou seeing as Clara is from the Victorian age, that would mean that she is in fact already dead by our time.

      Dead by our time or not, who cares – ROLL ON JENNA-LOUISE COLEMAN AS CLARA OSWIN !!!!!!!!! πŸ˜€

    • Mr Evil Fez

      September 30th, 2012 - 7:38am

      Perhaps he made her his companion because she is a member of the Dalek girl’s family?

    • Whovian

      September 30th, 2012 - 1:04pm

      I would love a companion from the futre… πŸ˜€

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      October 2nd, 2012 - 8:31am

      We have had companions from the future, Captain Jack Harkness [51st Century] and River Song [52nd Century].

  • matparks08

    September 29th, 2012 - 8:58pm

    Didn’t give much away did it? I don’t think we should have JLC in it yet as her character (if she does it the same as Asylum) won’t work with a heartbroken downbeat Doctor (sorry, she was TOO annoying for me in Asylum)

  • The Supreme Dalek

    September 29th, 2012 - 8:47pm

    I can’t rate this, as it barely did anything but give us pictures of the cast. 😐


    September 29th, 2012 - 8:34pm

    Looks good, but i would’ve liked to see a bit more!

    • doctordude1000

      September 30th, 2012 - 1:05am

      Steven Moffat said that they had seen the full edited special so that means its probably been filmed months ago

    • That Cherub over there

      September 30th, 2012 - 9:38am

      No, it was only filmed a month ago. It’s probably still in post-production meaning it’s not finished yet. πŸ˜›
