    This season hasn’t been up there with previous in terms of story telling but there were a couple great episodes like this one.
    Looking forward to seeing Hurt in the anniversary episode. Obviously the doctor who ended the time war before Chris I’d say.
    Loved tying all the old doctors in with Clara…why so long a wait and why so few episodes!!!!

    I always hoped that meant Romana was alive. I vaguely remember he left her at the Crossroads with the Guardian and that the Crossroads was outside time and space so therefore would not have been affected by the Time Wars

    Just because he is finding other Jobs in between of Who, doesn’t mean he’s ‘trying’ to leave. He’s just widening his acting range 🙂

    tons of people saying that he is not replacing smith, but they seem to forget that smith is looking to leave the series for other interests. looks as if he wants to do Hollywood and movies. typical actor, they have a great thing going and decide to leave it for something better and are never heard from again except for some after school special about STD’s or something.

    And some people thought the show was in trouble – pah! 7-10 million (with iPlayer) for a sci fi TV show….it’s pretty much unheard of. Even some if the better US sci if shows struggle to pull in half that and the US population is significantly bigger than ours.

    Did anyone besides me think that this might be a set up for a Dr Who feature film about the Time Wars?

    From Dr Who Wikipedia

    “In 2011, David Yates announced that he had started work with the BBC on a Doctor Who film, a project that would take three or more years to complete. Yates indicated that the film would take a different approach to Doctor Who,[99] although the current Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat stated later that any such film would not be a reboot of the series and a film should be made by the BBC team and star the current TV Doctor.”

    Research project: Between now and the 50th Anniversary special – review the previous storylines and see how many references to the darker side of the Doctor/Time Lords there are?
    Starting with Hartnell (‘thoughtfully picking up a rock…’ in the first story) through to McCoy’s Doctor manipulating people (and ‘Silver Nemesis’ being more than just a Doctor). Also not forgetting the Time Lord’s time scoop – plucking individuals from across the cosmos and using them for (lethal) games.
    Ecclestone (needing the calming influence of Rose), Tennant (allowing himself to think he can change history with impunity ‘waters of mars’) and so on.

    Candidates for who John Hurt’s character is:
    Pre-Hartnell version of the Doctor (before he & Susan go on the run)?
    ‘Time War’ Doctor (older version of McGann – or a missing regeneration?)
    Future Doctor – sometime after the Valeyard?

    ‘Intermediate’ incarnations – already established with the likes of ‘The Watcher – Logopolis’ and ‘Valeyard – Trial of a Time Lord’. Also other Time Lords ‘Planet of Spiders – tibetan monk’s aide turns out to be his future self – Romana 1 ‘trying out’ different bodies before ending up as Romana 2.
    And let’s not forget the metacrisis/Gallifreyan/human ‘but not a Time Lord’ version of David Tennant exiled to another universe.

    Past incarnation…probably. But don’t forget that the Doctor has crossed paths with his past & future selves before(3 Doctors 5 Doctors 2Doctors etc). They’ve also allowed telepathic contact with each other.
    So don’t rule out the possibility that he’s a future version (or even a ‘half’ version – a distinct personality from between regenerations – Logopolis ‘the watcher’ / Trial of a Time Lord ‘the Valeyard’).

    here is an article I found on the viewing figures

    According to early overnight viewing figures The Name of the Doctor was watched by 5.5 million viewers on BBC1.

    The overnight figures are only early estimates and we can expect a sizeable increase when the final BARB figures are released next week. Unlike the overnights, the final figures also count those who recorded the show and watched it later, making them a more accurate measure of how many were watching.

    The Name of the Doctor – 5.5 million (overnight) TBC (final figure)

    Nightmare in Silver – 4.7 million (overnight) 6.64 million (final figure)

    The Crimson Horror – 4.61 million (overnight) 6.47 million (final figure)

    Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS – 4.9 million (overnight) 6.50 million (final figure)

    Hide – 5 million (overnight) 6.61 million (final figure)

    Cold War – 5.7 million (overnight) 7.37 million (final figure)

    The Rings of Akhaten – 5.5 million (overnight) 7.45 million (final figure)

    The Bells of Saint John – 6.18 million (overnight) 8.44 million (final figure)

    The Snowmen – 7.6 million (overnight) 9.87 million (final figure)

    The Angels Take Manhattan – 5.9 million (overnight) 7.82 million (final figure)

    The Power of Three – 5.5 million (overnight) 7.67 million (final figure)

    A Town Called Mercy – 6.6 million (overnight) 8.42 million (final figure)

    Dinosaurs on a Spaceship – 5.5 million (overnight) 7.57 million (final figure)

    Asylum of the Daleks – 6.4 million (overnight) 8.3 million (final figure)

    Note: Overnight and BARB figures do not include iPlayer viewings which have, in some cases, added over 2 million on top of these.

    Great theory, would be really great if it happened. Very neat and nice.
    I can assure you but it most definitely won’t happen, unfortunately.
    Alas, Grant’s Doctor is to be forever resigned to be merely one the ‘alternative’ Doctors, along with Peter Cushing, Rowen Atkinson, and many others.
    At least he’s a fantastic villain.

    I was confused by them being inside the TARDIS one min, then outside.

    Also, where were The Silence? Last season they were desperate that the Dr didn’t get to Trenzalore, I though Silence was supposed to fall when the question was asked? They were not even referred to.

    Also, Clara told the 1st Do which TARDIS to steal, but in The Dr’s Wife the TARDIS said that it chose the DR??

    I have another theory. I think richard E grant will be the next doctor.

    Richard E grant is dr simeon. He then becomes the great intelegence (psycic image). Outside the tardis, he mentioned something the doctor will do, (destroy billions) he then mentioned the valeyard.
    After this, he entered the doctors time stream and tried to rewrite the doctor. Clara then entered and somehow, (not explained how) stopped him but we didnt see her destroy him. Indeed clara survived so why couldnt the GI too.
    Inside we meet john hurt as the doctor.

    I see john hurt as an aspect of the dark doctor, affected by the great intelegence and who will energe to cause mass devistation in the doctors name, (breaking the promise).

    now I think that the next episode and the christmas special will be used fighting the john hurt doctor. Then either mat smith will regenerate at christmas (possible, moffat has lied before so maybe we have been told the matt is on board another year to create a shocker at christmas day!) or will spend the next season fighting the GI inside his timestream (tardis exploding involved in this battle)leading to his regeneration at the end of series 8.
    now….. I think that during the regeneration, he will beat the GI by splitting the regeneration. Half the regeneration will become the valeyard. The doctor however will be affected by the phycic image of dr simeon. He will look like him, regenerating into richard E grant.
    Why would I think this? Cause he already has in the form of the official BBC dr who story, scream of the shakra! Richard E Grant is already the doctor. Explains the valeyard, explains that doctor. We ALREADY have seen a 12th doctor story.

    Makes sense to me.

    What ya think?
