Only three episodes here that I would call good. Amy's Choice in 3rd. Mummy on the Orient Express in 2nd and the winner being the fantastic. Vincent and the Doctor. Don't really care for the others at all.

This is the first time I've actually been confident that a Moffat finale is going to be good. Hopefully it's the first one I actually love. Literally cannot wait until Saturday now.
@MWTV"I am your father" ? XD
@TardisBoy is in HeavenI might get lynched for saying this, but I'm 10x more excited for this than I was for the 50th
Great review DWTV. I hope Danny gets a bigger role than usual. He was amazing last week.
@KCi Williams is Moffat Hi K-Ci :) Been a while since I seen you comment. Hope all is well :)

@supermoff needs answers! NOW! @Mark McCullough @The Lazy Cat Has Gone to Heaven... With Clara. I'm sure my thoughts on Name would go down very well indeed XD ;-)
@The Lazy Cat Has Gone to Heaven... With Clara. Who's this Mark creep and why has he wrote about 50,000 words on us? Clingy much XD
I read a theory in the comments section (of another article) for which I have no idea what it is based on or where it come from, but it was quite a random yet very interesting idea. Apparently the theory/rumour was that Missy was making the Doctor and his adventures into a TV show. This would fit why people were taking photos with the monsters, why Missy was pleased with her choice for Clara (a great choice for lead role?) and why she was watching events in Forest on a TV commenting on what was one of the most 'interesting scenes'. Interestingly enough this could also fit in with Moffat's teases about Capaldi's face having relevance. Missy could discredit the Doctor as an actor by showing evidence of him playing another character within her TV programme. Not to mention it would also make Missy a self reflection of Moffat XD XD. 3W does sound like the name of a broadcasting company too. Another top breakdown by the way Connor.

Interesting how the pictures are presented to look as if Missy is the companion. However if you look closely you can see Missy is loving it and the Doctor looks terrified. If I were to hazard a guess she is showing off her Cybermen to him who are standing in formation. At another guess she and the Doctor are invisible, no one is looking at the woman dressed strangely and making weird gestures.As a final guess I'm going to say that location is key, the Cybermen seem to be standing on guard but inactive as if protecting the location. I'm going to go out on a limb and say the doors to St Pauls Cathedral are the gates to the Nethersphere. (knowing Moffat, you can ignore everything I've just said xD)

@The Lazy Cat Has Gone to Heaven... With Clara. @supermoff needs answers! NOW! @Mark McCullough It's obviously that Missy is an Abzorbaloff in disguise
@supermoff needs answers! NOW! My guess is something to do with the fact that water is pure, so Dark Water implies loss of purity which would fit with Clara in the trailer.
One thing I do have to say though is that if the “I’m not Clara Oswald…. Clara Oswald has never existed!” line turns out to be significant (and not a red herring) I will be a little miffed that a twist so big was revealed in a trailer instead of in the episode
Great Breakdown Connor. Some very good theories posed. As an aside, is it just me or does the Computer monitor over Clara's left shoulder in the final frame remind you a little of Gus' design? Hard to tell from so far away.
There are lots of reasons to like it. It's a fresh approach to the show and was working really really well until the last few minutes. Also Jackie, Jackie was awesome in it.

@DsjhWell I could pick 12 Moments from Name, so I assume any episode no matter how bad has its great moments.
@The Living Angel is Regenerating Definitely one of the better Child actors we have had. The character was so real and I felt emotionally invested in her story.
@Clara Bosswald has never existed. @Mark McCullough @Notsosmartguy Dreams of Paradise Bells is definitely better than Forest. Forest is on par with Crimson for me, maybe a slight preference towards the latter. Rings rates the same as Crimson for me, and the rest of 7B fails to even reach the 5/10 score.
@Notsosmartguy Dreams of ParadiseYeah the character moment saved the episode from being completely mediocre. It was still enjoyable, but at times I actually found it a little bit boring. Head and shoulders above 7B though. XD

Maebh: We are the green shoots that grow between the cracks, the grass
that grows over the mass graves. After your wars are over, we will still be
Here. We are the life that prevails
Doctor: Why now? Why are you here now.
Maebh: We hear the call and we come, as we came before to the great
North Forest, where we still lie in a great circle. As we came to the vast
Doctor: Who is calling you now?
Maebh: The sun that creates, the sun that destroys. You are hurting us,

@stargazer0118 @Scribey @Chris502I have a funny feeling after the finale much of what Clara has done can be attributed to Missy who (hopefully) taints Clara's character

@Chris502Is the message that schools are useless and don't assess what really counts?
Random Missy Theory Time
The other night Chris posted a very good theory about how both Name of the Doctor and Time of the Doctor could both have happened. The issue is something I had always expected Moffat to come back and address at some point, we know he likes to make everything complete and any gap is left for a reason. I think Chris could have been right on the money saying that the repercussions of the events of the events last (despite the event itself being null and void) due to the characters seeing them. So if what Chris said about the Clara echoes is true, what about this line of dialogue.
"Tell that to the leader of the Sycorax, or Solomon the trader, or the Cybermen, or the Daleks. The Doctor lives his life in darker hues, day upon day, and he will have other names before the end. The Storm, the Beast, the Valeyard."
By extension of logic, that would imply that this change could still have happened for the Doctor, if the Clara echoes can exist so can the Doctor's darker side. If we say that the Doctor who we witness now is the one produced from the moment of intervention, i.e. the one who went on to save Gallifrey and regenerated whilst protection trenzalore. That means there could be a another Doctor out there, the path the Doctor was always meant to take until the intervention occurred.
So let's take a step back and look at the consequences of Clara's actions on the Doctor. Instead of becoming this darker being feared across the universe, he has saved his own planet, accepted an incarnation of himself he had hidden, and he has been given a complete fresh start by a new set of regenerations. Why is this significant? It means that Missy's actions in choosing Clara have ultimately led to the Doctor's redemption and saved him from a dark path.
This addition is a pure guess on my behalf, but say the Doctor had rejected the War Doctor, would he have had another regeneration in lieu of this? It's possible. So what am I getting at here, we know Moffat is capable of connecting episodes to the arc which initially don't seem to be. I'm going to go with Time Heist here because of the idea of someone on their death bed using Time Travel to correct their mistakes. It would be perfect foreshadowing for what my idea is.
So that is my theory, is Missy the Valeyard who at the end of her life realised that she was wrong and thus used Clara to help herself to a fresh start and to correct the biggest mistake of her life (and test the audiences reception to a female Doctor at the same time). It would fit inclusion of 12 in Day too as his appearance essentially destiny traps the events so as everything must happen as it does. The Valeyard acting on the Doctor through Clara, I think that could work quite well.
@Chris502 @Mark McCulloughSheriff wasn't a true Villain either if you include the removed scene. He was manipulated by the robots.

I can 100% assure you it is the nervous system, although I can see how the confusion arises as both systems are normally paired. However there are a couple of key areas for differentiating:
First is down near the hands, in the arterial system you have two vessels (the Radial and Ulnar arteries) which join together to form the Palmar Arch which is absent here. Likewise there are three main branches corresponding to the Radial, Median, and Ulnar Nerves.
You picked up on another with the stomach area. Had it been arterial you would have been able to see the three intestinal arteries (Celiac Trunk, Superior Mesenteric, and Inferior Mesenteric Arteries), you would also have the renal arteries coming off the abdominal aorta perpendicularly. The image in the episode fits the nerves of the lumbo-sacral plexus more.
Another key area is the legs, we can see the Terminal Femoral Nerve to the left and above Clara's head, with the Sciatic Nerve branching into the Common Fibular and Tibial Nerves below that. Again arterial supply would be different as Popliteal Artery is continuos with the Femoral Artery.
In the head, what you see is not the Carotids, but Cranial Nerves X and XI coming down from the brainstem. Other defining charactistics are the lack of an aortic arch and abdominal aorta, along with the lack of any anastomoses within the picture.
Hope that clears it up for you :)
