Does there have to be a reason?
Especially since Sherlock Holmes has been established as a fictional character many times in the Doctor Who universe :P

@Handles I think Abigail had several trips on each Christmas Eve, thus beating the counter. Like Amy and Rory, She and Kazran went on several short trips.

Voyage of the Damned. I like The End of Time, but there's too much I don't like, whereas I like Voyage a lot more and there's less I don't like.

Or we should take away that this is science fiction. Science isn't supposed to be accurate.

ooo... what if this is a companion introduction episode and the companion is from the past and knows the Doctor as "Magician" not Doctor? Like how Ace called the Doctor "Professor", the new companion could call the Doctor "Magician"! That's if Clara leaves.
Also, Apprentice is another term for "assistant" and the Doctor's companions are sometimes called "assistants". So if Magician refers to the Doctor and Apprentice refers to the companion, the title is literally "The Doctor's Companion".

Well, my idea to makr the 10th Anniversary of New Who was to bring back companions instead of Doctors. One companion for each Doctor. Jack for 9, Martha for 10, River for 11 and then 12 and his companion.

DWTV: Banners! I've got new banners! I don't like the colour!
Admin: Of your banners? What's happening?
DWTV: The site's probably crashing! Stay calm! Just one question! Do you happen to know how to moderate this thing?
Obvious parody out of the way. In all seriousness, loving the redesign!

@The Genie, Agent of JACKIE It would require the shots to be re-rendered and the episode to be remastered, a very expensive job.

@You_Will_Obey_Me @Tardis Boy Well, tbf, Classic Who did alien worlds lots of times with only a fraction of New Who's budget. It can be done. Of course it might mean a few quarries in Wales end up being planets :P

@The Finn, Agent of SPECTRE @Captain Administrator @Mark McCullough But TBOTFA is the finale to The Hobbit trilogy, not the LOTR

@Tardis Boy I still think the Doctor finding Gallifrey will be Moffat's final episode as showrunner. It just makes sense to me.

@Chris502 Because referencing a serial from the 70s a lot could alienate viewers?
@Chris502 @Captain Administrator @The Genie, Agent of JACKIE Yes. Partly basing it on that :P
@The Genie, Agent of JACKIE It would be brilliant storytelling wise, but could be too risky... but maybe a companion who's a Nazi? Then during their time with the Doctor they grow into a stronger person and overcome their prejudice and hate?
@The Genie, Agent of JACKIE Someone who's not 100% perfect companion material. Someone you look at and think "Why did you bring this person along Doctor?" only for us to learn that the Doctor is trying to shape this person into the perfect companion by effectively throwing them in at the deep end with difficult choices, for example, save everyone they can from a crashing spaceship or leave it to it's fate?
@Tardis Boy Rose Leslie, Peggy Nesbitt (Sigrid in The Hobbit), Kate Bracken, Gemma Arterton
@The Genie, Agent of JACKIE I wonder if anyone will pick up on the Guardians of the Galaxy reference I sneaked in there
@The Genie, Agent of JACKIE I... I actually like doing things without popping back to chat every minute or so XD
@Chris502 Hmm I could give it a try.
I think I'm going to rescore one of the Christmas specials. But which one?
Left a little something on BTW about The Hobbit. It would be nice if you gave it a read.
Where is Peter Jackson? I need to hug him. He's taken a book that I absolutely adored in my childhood, and still do to this day, and made it into perhaps one of my favourite film trilogies of all time. I'm just amazed that after all the legal issues, the studio going bankrupt and the original director dropping out that Peter Jackson was able to bring Bilbo, Thorin, Gandalf, Fili, Kili, Balin, Dwalin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Nori, Dori, Ori, Oin, Gloin, Bard, Thranduil, Beorn, Bolg, Dain, Smaug and all the other characters from the book to the screen and make them feel as if they leaped off the page from Professor Tolkien's words to the screen. And even then he delivered much more than that. He brought back Galadriel, Elrond, Saruman, Legolas and Frodo to further tie the story to Lord of the Rings, introduced Radagast the Brown and even created new characters in the form of Azog, Tauriel, Alfrid, Bain, Sigrid and Tilda among others who have perfectly fit into Tolkien's world. It's just a joy to see this epic tale unfold on screen. The fact that as a fan of the book I could still be surprised amazes me. I embrace the deviations from Tolkien's text as it allows a richer and more developed world. This trilogy came at the perfect time for me. Just as Lord of the Rings movies guided me through my childhood, The Hobbit movies have guided me through my late teen years and I will probably keep returning to these movies until the day I die. It's hard to express in words how much this world and it's characters mean to me. And now it's all over. Just like I had to say goodbye to Harry, Ron and Hermione, I have to say farewell to Bilbo and Gandalf. But they will always be with me. And I will never, ever forget the sense of wonder I feel everytime I enter Middle Earth.
"If more of us favored food and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. Alas, I must leave it now. Farewell."
Just got back from The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. What can I say apart from... wow. WOW. WOW. Peter Jackson you did it again! A perfect finale to the Hobbit trilogy and the Middle Earth franchise as a whole! 10/10
@The Finn, Agent of SPECTRE @Mark McCullough @Captain Administrator Well tbf you're watching just the final act of a three act story so you don't have the investment in the characters or story the first 2 films set up.
@TheTimeTraveller is excited for Last Christmas Why? I have it on Blu-Ray :P
Christmas special marathon
The Runaway Bride 8/10
Lots of good fun, if the plot is a little silly at times.

The Christmas Invasion 9/10
It's well made, well paced and Tennant is magnificent even if he spends 80% of the episode in bed.

@Tardis Boy Sadly Lee is a lot less active now so it would need to be a very passive role. Maybe the Valeyard puts the Doctor on trial again? XD
@Chris502 @Tardis Boy He's the director of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogies. Two of the most critically acclaimed and beautifully shot and made trilogies ever.
@Tardis Boy Stephen Fry as a Time Lord! Basically his character in The Hobbit as a Time Lord Lord President XD
@Tardis Boy Christopher Lee as a Time Lord!
@Mark McCullough @Captain Administrator I'll probably see this film several times. I've seen each Hobbit film 3 times so far so I'll hopefully see this one 3 times too. I'll be seeing it in HFR 3D over Christmas hopefully and then again with friends in January.
@Tardis Boy *Plans to make Saturday night filled with endless teasing about the film for TB ;-)*
@Mark McCullough @Captain Administrator I'm seeing it tomorrow in IMAX 3D at 4:10. Can't wait :D
@Tardis Boy I can't wait to watch it again at Christmas. I watched it a few weeks ago at my best friend's flat but he was more interested in chatting and tickle fights than the film so I missed a huge chunk of it XD
@Mark McCullough @Captain Administrator :o YOU'VE SEEN IT!?
And best Hobbit film yet?
Ha. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
@Chris502 Alternatively... it's a time travel and nothing is going to make perfect sense.
@Tardis Boy Noooo! I want her to survive!
@Tardis Boy Of course, now it's going up against Warcraft so... yeah... they've ditched one big blockbuster for another
@Tardis Boy Yep. It's so they don't go up against Star Wars: The Force Awakens
@Mark McCullough @Captain Administrator Speculation! :D Fair game!
@Mark McCullough @Captain Administrator It forgot you existed ;-)
Kung Fu Panda 3 has been delayed until March 2016 :(
Guys! Why don't we use Beyond the Whoniverse? It's dead...
Place your bets! Which characters unique to the Hobbit films (not from the book or LOTR) will die in TBOTFA? Here's a reminder of some.
Bain (Bard's son)
Sigrid (Bard's daughter)
Tilda (Bard's daughter)
Alfrid (The Master of Lake-Town's servant)
@Tardis Boy I watched that last night! :D I've been watching all the Extended Editions in preparation for TBOTFA tomorrow. Tuesday was FOTR, Wednesday TTT, Thursday ROTK and AUJ and today TDOS! :D I was originally going to watch AUJ tonight and DOS tomorrow morning but I'm worried I'll sleep in and not get chance so I brought AUJ forward by a day XD
@TheTimeTraveller is excited for Last Christmas It looks... interesting. Santa looks awesome. Pretty hard to judge on such a short clip
@Tardis Boy XD Please say you're not on the barrel sequence... otherwise that would be spooky! O_O
