    Skaroman. Im impressed. For one so young you have travelled far and demonstrate great wisdom.
    I too wasnt keen on those you mentioned though for me the ones I really struggle with are Adric, Tegan, Mel and (preparing to be criticised here…) Ace.
    You are quite correct that we are all entitled to our own opinion and thats what makes it all so interesting and different.
    I would just like to see Capaldis Doctor take centre stage and be given scripts and stories he can truly make his own and do him justice. He’s a tremendous actor and has the potential to be a tremendous Doctor, possibly rivalling my personal favourite Jon Pertwee.
    Just out of interest, whats your favourite story / stories? For me its Bakers Talons of Weng Chiang followed by Pertwees The Daemons and then Bakers Pyramids of Mars.

    Perhaps it was the doctor himself perhaps the doctoctor is his own worst fear

  • sweetie

    September 14th, 2014 - 9:03pm

    I think it was the doctors fear

  • sweetie

    Perhaps Clara is Missy from the future as she can time travel and is always on the doctors time line even in death

    Technically there shouldn’t be anymore unless they useriver song giving him all hers so that he will be able to a few more times

    It was very telling the doctor has fears that’s unheard ofas for dDan and Clara in one reality they obviously get together and have kids but as we know the future can change.

  • sweetie

    September 14th, 2014 - 8:43pm

    We don’t know Clara is so mixed up in all the doctors timelines perhaps things are swopping

    magnificent episode faviroute so far

    All will become clear in time Clara has been through so many lives she is stronger than most of the doctors side kicks love to see that the doctor does have fears and Clara can pasifie him as a child and an adult, its great to see the doctor getting a bit more funky two was getting a bit boring, loving the accent though reminds me of DT when he was with queen Victoria. Hoping things will just get better.

    Have u never heard of kids going on camps he could of been on holiday and no I don’t believe he took a Harris as a boy because the Dr that was gona blow up gallifrey is the doctor he was when he left also they regenerate we don’t know how many years it actually takes for them to look old I think all the wrighters are fantastic and all will b explained in due time as it always is but I think it was the doctor in that bed because Clara repeated what she had heard the doctor say and he said it because clar had said it to him as that little boy

    Clara is brilliant she is more of a doctor than the doctor is at the no she’s spent so long in his life line she’s absorbing him

    Its gaining more in site into the doctor and finally learning that he does have fears which means he is vulnerable that means everything

    I think she is river song in a previous incarnation her timeline runs opposite to the doctors or perhaps she’s just a girlfriend we havnt met.

    The doctor has a daughter made from a machine but yeah he could have more kids I suppose

    Aha! Nice to meet some traditional Whovians on this site. I agree that Clara is amazing, it’s just those few episodes that you have to warm up to a different character. I’m only 17 but I have seen every episode of Doctor Who (apart from lost episodes and UWM 2) and I must say that we are all entitled to our own opinion. For example: I really don’t like Dodo Chaplet, Turlough or Amy Pond. My opionion, your opinion.

    Under the sheet was something created by the doctors imagination when he was a child but that fear is what made him who he is as it acts like adrenalin to keep him going. Clara is all over his time line sent to keep him safe, that even meant before we knew him or that’s what I think anyway.

    Are we watching the same episodes of doctor who, Clara is the best companion of the new series to date

    I think Peters really good for the show but I think the same clara not the best for the series because series 7 wasn’t the best either clara just not the best

  • the astronaut of death

    I just had a thought now it is probably wrong but

    what if the boy in the barn wasn’t the doctor Clara was the one who presumed he was the doctor making us presume

    well what I got from that scene was that he was an orphan I may be wrong but to me it sounded like it

    and if that is true since when was the doctor an orphan?

    so what if that boy was the doctors son

    because we did here a reference for the doctor to being a father in this episode when he put Rupert to sleep. so maybe that is a link

    Thats the beauty of Doctor Who, what was it? you don’t know, it wasn’t that is didn’t make sense, its about fear, you think it was something but it was actually something else, or was it, thats how life is.

    So what was under the sheet? What was outside the spaceship? What else grabbed the other people?

    Didnt make sense.


    September 14th, 2014 - 6:05pm

    I agree with James Halho

    And they were outside

    I was wondering if anyone else thinks that Missy might be the “I want to Kill the Doctor side of River Song” that she somehow separated from herself and it became its own entity? She refers to the Doctor as her Boyfriend and can manipulate his timeline. They basically made 2 River Songs when they kidnapped her as a baby and mentally trained her to be an assassin that can be triggered. Maybe she was able to cut that part of herself out and it became corporeal.

    as anyone tried pausing the ep at the exact time the thing on the bed took the covers off. also anyone have any ideas what was outside the tardis just after orson saved the doctor the cloister bell was ringing so something must of been out there. one last think I don’t think we’ve seen the last of orson because when they were filming local to me the doctor, clara and two others were wearing sb6 suits
