Is it me, or does Capaldi look slightly like Roger Daltry in the third picture?

Anyone else find the way he opened his eyes and whispered "listen" really unnerving? This guy is brilliant!
3 days, 3 hours ago on Listen! Series 8 Teaser Trailer
IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN LOOKING AT THE "WHAT WE KNOW" PAGES THEN DON'T READ THIS
A reference to episode 4 perhaps, seeing as "Listen" is the rumoured title for the episode? Also, we have had one teaser that was seemingly for episode 1 and then the Dalek one for episode 2.
You never know, there might be the audio of the whole series all sped up and really faint after he says "listen"!
As with the 50th, I much prefer watching it from the comfort of my sofa. And for free! All you have to do is turn the lights off and turn the volume up to make it like the cinema! Also, I want to be on this site straight away afterwards with you guys :)

I already have "Name", "Night", "Day" and "Adventure", but I'll still be getting this. It has literally everything from the wonderful 50th Anniversary on it.

I genuinly don't know which episode I'm most looking forward to! The finale does look epic, but before that we've got a new Doctor, the Paternoster Gang, Daleks, Robin Hood and Ben Miller, Danny Pink, a Doctor Who heist and Keeley Hawes, Coal Hill School, an episode filmed in Lanzarote, a Moffat mind-blowing twist, Foxes, Frank Skinner, Hermione Norris, that creepy-looking episode with drawings on the walls of the tunnel, a "magical" episode, some brand-new writers and directors, and some brilliant returning writers. This is going to be one hell of a good series!

Series 8, Episode 10: Return of the Round Things.
Hey, you never know! After all, the writer himself said: <i>“Of all the thrills that pen and paper have brought into my life, there’s nothing that quite compares to the buzz of unlimited possibility that rushes through your fingers and into your brain when you write the words: <b>‘Interior … TARDIS’</b>.”</i> "‘Interior … TARDIS’", eh?
@Notsosmartguy approves of female thor I agree. It has the template of the classic original one, but the modern alterations have made it feel much cosier and magical. It's beautiful.
@TheCyberDoctor is Undead @DrWhoBoy123 I'll definitely be buying that!
That TARDIS looks beautiful.
Will definitely be buying this issue. Capaldi just looks like the Doctor!
Well done to whoever made that 1974-style trailer - it must've taken some hard work!

I still don't know which is my favourite theme tune. I love the eerieness of the 1963-1969 tunes (accompanied by the coolest rattle ever); I love the simplicity of the 1970-1979 tunes; I love the mad, totally sci-fi and 80s feel to the iconic (and possibly the most memorable of them all) 1980-1986 tunes; I love the bold guitars and confidence of the 1987-1989 tunes; I love the epicness and grandeur of the 1996 tune; I love the electric guitars and drums (my instrument) that give the 2005-2010 tunes their jazzy, punky feel; and I love the combination of rock, sci-fi and orchestral music found in the 2010-2013 tunes.
In short, I love the Doctor Who Theme Tune!
1 week, 5 days ago on The Importance of Doctor Who’s Theme Tunes
That one is superb.
I am so looking forward to hearing Twelve's theme tune! I expect Murray Gold will present us with another catchy, epic, beautiful tune.
I've got a few points to mention:
- Is the second picture actually inside the Dalek by any chance?
- The new TARDIS interior is already my favourite yet.
- Twelve and Clara look brilliant together.
- T-Rex in Victorian London? *shakes fist* MOFFAT!
- "Life returns"/"Life prevails" - Huh?
- Jack the Ripper is the Terminator!
- That has to be one of the coolest-looking aliens ever from Time Heist
- Coal Hill School and explosions! The Caretaker looks to be quite a good episode.
- Airlocks! Is River Song back by any chance?
- Is that a soothsayer that Clara is looking at?
- Is that robot from Robots of Sherwood in a knight's helmet/suit of armour? It looks fantastic!
- DWTV should turn to comedy as well as Doctor Who!

DWTV, that was just brilliant! Couldn't stop grinning!
"The Dalek-esque voice says “Life prevails” as the 12th Doctor does his best Earth Song reenactment." was a personal highlight!
Ooh interesting! I don't know which one sounds the most intriguing; I only know that I want all of them. And since I am arachnophobic and have a great dislike of any insects, I can see The Crawling Terror being a freaky one!

2 weeks, 5 days ago on Series 8: Deep Breath First Look
Loving the little teasers we're being treated to to whet our appetite for Series 8, which I am absolutely buzzing for now! I'm looking forward to seeing Capaldi in action and how different he is from previous Doctors. Also, I actually can't wait to hear Twelve's theme tune!
While I have the chance to comment, I would like to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the brilliant articles posted in the last few days, and I think DWTV are very wise to restrict the commenting. It's annoying that yet another leak has happened, and I do know people who have read the scripts. I, however, don't want to go near them - I will feel a lot more satisfied if the first time I hear the scripts is when Capaldi is saying them, not me. Also, the emotions we feel the first time we watch are priceless; I will never forget "I am the Master", "Introducing John Hurt as the Doctor" and "You know I really think you might", simply because of the shivers that went down my spine. #keepmespoilerfree
Into the Dalek... sounds awesome!
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Dalek Story Details for Series 8?
My thoughts exactly. When a "big" monster has a significant break it's return guarantees good viewing figures, immense anticipation, massive excitement and fandom freak-outs. That's why I'm looking forward to the Master's return so much - it's gonna be big, and big is awesome.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Are the Big Enemies Being Overused?
It might not be a full trailer, but it's the coolest trailer I've ever seen! Also, I hope they still use music by Two Steps From Hell in the full trailers, because it's seriously epic!

This one looks pretty dark and pretty epic... I like it.
Anyone else think that Series 8 could be the best series yet? Some superb titles, a stunning guest cast, the return of some old favourites (characters and monsters), some new talent (writers and directors), the old genius/nightmare weaver, Coal Hill School, some interesting new recurring characters, a wonderful actress by the Doctor's side, and - of course - Peter Capaldi. What's not to love?!

4 weeks, 1 day ago on Series 8 Finale Filming: Returning Characters & Monster
Hang on - the script mentions a character called Missy... Wasn't she a member of the platoon in Nightmare in Silver?
Death in Heaven? Referring to the graves I guess. Also, St Paul's and Cybermen and UNIT? That sounds familiar for some reason...
Hopefully this will be the story the Cybermen need to get them back on track. Mondasian Cybermen, classic Cybermen heads, UNIT, a new Doctor, a finale episode, a fantastic writer and a very interesting scenario in the bottom picture (civilians with guns?). This should be brilliant. Actually, this could be a classic.
That bottom picture... too many things to ask! All I can say is this: GIMME THE FINALE NOW!
My favourites this week are the Series 8 fan titles, the River Song Timeline and the stunning "Look How Far We've Come" trailer. Great WaW as always DWTV!

All I can say is... wow. That is one good theory! At first I was, admittedly, quite skeptical, but as I read on I just began nodding and doing that weird "oohhh" and "mmhhmm". It would certainly be an interesting twist, and clearly pretty plausible! Great article!
1 month ago on An Earthly Gallifrey
Great article here Liam, I couldn't agree with it more. As you say the scene is great, but it is by no means the greatest sci-fi moment of all time. I totally agree with "Saving Gallifrey" as the top, or at least some moment from "Day". For a greatest moment, in my opinion, it needs to be intense, surprising, mind-blowing, terrifying, or all of the above. But this scene was more emotional, and, while I get that emotion is a big part of sci-fi shows, it can't top monumental scenes such as those from "Day".

@The Finn @Baker Street is excited for Series 8! Sorry, I had to refresh the page because I changed my name and avatar and it momentarily said 3rd August, but I've just refreshed it again and it's back to the 23rd. That wasn't at all awkward...
Oh. So, it was originally 23rd, then on the update it said the 3rd, and now the update says 23rd again. Slightly awkward...
Just changed my name and avatar out of extreme excitement.
