      BBC America shop have sent out Blu-rays to early so it only a matter of time before the whole thing leaks

      Avoid the internet if you want to stay spolier free

      Thanks booboo,
      Yes, I saw this morning that they shipped them early, I also read that the guy who got it did not post spoilers. However, who knows how many more blue rays where shipped early?
      So I think I’ll take your advice.

      Cheers mate!

    I think Clara was created by someone to keep on saving the doctor?!


      May 12th, 2013 - 9:20am

      Sure seems like it, thou I wish she did not say “I was born to save the Doctor” in one of the new trailers, that’s completely spoiled the surprise concerning the mystery of who she is.

      Looking at the trailer featuring the 3rd Doctor’s Car Bessie, it seems to me that there maybe more then 3 versions of Clara, one of them who lived in the 1970’s who saw the Doctor’s Car drive past him without the 3rd or 4th Doctor’s driving her since she could be remote controlled or voice activated by the Doctor as I seem to recall from one of Jon’s stories where Bessie got stolen by the Master and he ends up being brought back to the Doctor and UNIT by Bessie, and an 1980’s version of Clara seen in the Tardis who could have encountered Doctors 4,5,6 or 7 during the 1980’s but just never did, so it seems the only time versions of her have encountered the Doctor have been in his current incarnation.

      I think she is sent thought the doctors life to save each doctor, but maybe she fails to save the tenth doctor or something. Meaning he reruns in the 50th!

    Very interesting and intriguing. It would’ve been nice to see something from Asylum of the Daleks since there was one of the Intelligence’s Snowmen in the background. Even still, can’t wait for this episode! 😀

    They shouldn’t tell us the doctors name


      May 12th, 2013 - 7:17am

      Agreed, Ive been saying it all along and yet still no body ever listens when I say that if we know the Doctor’s name for real then calling the series DOCTOR WHO will then become completely MEANINGLESS !!!!.

      Just imagine for example, in the next 50 years, IF the Doctor’s name does get revealed in next weekends final episode of series 7, and during the next 50 years he uses his real name but the show is still called Doctor Who, kids will be asking their parents “Why is the show called Doctor Who when we know his name ?”.

      You just don’t want that to happen. Doctor Who is not just a show title, it’s a quetion – A QUESTION THAT MUST – NEVER – BE – ANSWERED !!!!.

    Good prequel!


    May 11th, 2013 - 9:07pm

    this is really good!

    That was interesting. I was having fun spotting things in the background from earlier episodes in the series.

    I can’t believe we have to wait a week to see the episode though 🙁 Hopefully Saturday will come fast!


    May 11th, 2013 - 8:39pm

    Sounds like the events of ‘The Name of the Doctor’ have already taken place before this prequel, considering they both say “The day we went to Trenzalore”, so really, this should be seen as a sequel rather then a prequel, cos prequel basicly means something that happens before something else, but this obviously takes place after next Saturdays episode so this aint really a prequel, it’s a sequel.

    Still, must have been hard for Matt and Jenna to stand still like that without end up laughing or blinking an eyelid.

      Don’t complain

      More like a teaser if you ask me. And unless they were in a seperate shot just photo-still, I’d call that great acting on both parts.


      May 12th, 2013 - 7:19am

      Not complaining mate, just saying that when you think about it, this is really a sequel and not a prequel.

    It looks like Clara was created by the tardis and river by the other clips and trailers
