    I disagree I think Missy is a brilliant incarnation of the Master. However if she wasn’t the Master, she would’ve been better as the Rani.

    In the trailer you see the vault doors being hit from inside as if something big is trying to get out. I don’t know what could be inside but it must be something big.

    the big red robot thing that Nardole’s he’d use to be in.

    And Koquiillian it just might be Kris Marshalls false doctor hr regenerates into in that distopian future episode and it turns out that it never really happened.

    Just a thought (sorry if I am wrong)but shouldn’t the daleks be destiny daleks if they are fighting against the movellans?

    They would have two mums or two dad’s depending on which parent changed gender. The gender of the children would not change as there is no physical link between them. Maybe the doctor’s wife changed gender and became the master – would explain the bickering! (Just kidding!)

    All the Doctors,maybe.

    I am thinking its the FIRST doctor trapped by the Master behind the vault doors. This may appear in the cybermen episode where the first doctor met the Mondassian Cybermen !!! The master captures the 1st doc and tries to save the Mondassian cybermen. !!!

    I think the music in the background was enough

    A Tardis, possibly the meddling monks one still disguised as a church altar.

    booboo my thoughts exactly! The show is making it look like its The Master. But i reckon its Doctor 13! What a great way to reveal if it is!

    I enjoyed the episode bit slow to start but I think Bill is a breath of fresh air, no Clara show magic.

    What does everyone think is in the Vault?

    A, never thought it through with Susan you are quite right, Romana could have gone mad from being stuck in E Space and wanted revenge on the Doctor for not attempting to go back for her (she did stay of her own accord but if she’s like my wife then she can change her mind on a hourly basis)

  • Pats86

    April 17th, 2017 - 5:32pm

    Sorry, I mean sincerely hope the next Doctor is NOT female.

  • Pats86

    April 17th, 2017 - 5:29pm

    Whorules, thanks but no need to apologise. I would like an explanation to family affairs regarding the Doctor though (not expecting you to be able to do so)
    We know the Doctor has a wife and children who are missing, if his wife is still female and the Doctor changes gender do the kids have two mum’s? are the kids still the same gender as when born? All thus does not work in my head, I simply do not like the idea because it did not have to be like this, it was fine as it was!
    I sincerely hope the next Doctor is female, I will still watch but not with total devotion like I do now, if it doesn’t work with a female Doctor I truly believe it could be the end of the show and what makes it worse is it need no have to happen.
    Thanks for the reply I appreciate it 🙂

    I wish someone could wipe my memory of Clara!

    Please excuse me for being really dumb but that music that was played at the very start of the episode, is that Bills theme? If it is then it is so charming. The incidental music on Dr Who has always been unrivalled in my opinion. Also i think that the music in previous series has had a tendency to drown out the dialogue (something that happens in to many BBC shows i feel) and in this episode it was pretty well toned. Yet another good aspect to this episode.

    I didn’t. I’d rather forget Clara and it would have ruined the ‘Jumping on episode’ they were aiming for.

    I really, really, really wanted a flashback to the Doctor wiping Donna’s memory and the Doctor forgetting Clara when he was about to perform the kind wipe especially when Bill said ‘how would you feel, if someone did this to you” I thought that was the perfect opportunity

    Bill said how would you feel if it was you – The Doctor had his mind erased regarding Clara, hence the subtle theme playing in the background. As much as I don’t want Clara mentioned, it was a nice touch and relevant to the moment.
