@Marstobi37 Perfectly right. Every universe has its afterlife, Dragon Ball has one, Doctor Who has another, our world has another. That's not a problem for me, too.

@Aztecs, Daleks and Cavemen If I'm not mistaken, Aslan declares to be known under a different name on Earth, implying he's meant to be Jesus himself...

@The Trickster's Brigade, Agent of T.R.I.C.K.S. I meant "lots of Christians". Not just Catholic.

@The Trickster's Brigade, Agent of T.R.I.C.K.S. I think your point here is slightly wrong: there are lots of Catholics out there who believe in the Big Bang, and it must be said that this theory has been formulated by a Roman Catholic priest for the very first time.

@Terileptils On The Orient Express Even if it were, it might be the specific afterlife for THAT world. I don't see why a Deity would create every single universe according to the same rules. As a Christian and a Catholic, I know that our theology admits the existence of every possible world at least in God's mind. "Every possible" is satisfying to me. It makes me think that the Doctor Who universe exists in God's mind just for the very fact that it was thought of by humans and humans are made in God's image, marked by intelligence and logic, too.

@The Trickster's Brigade, Agent of T.R.I.C.K.S. I'm Catholic too and I had more or less the same reaction as your grandmother... so I think Roman Catholics won't have many problems with this story arc. Curious to know about others.

@Polyphase @Deus_Ex_Machina My take is that the Bible is mostly a non-fictional book with some embroidery here and there, due primarily to oral transmission, folklore, mistranslations and whatsoever. But even the most curious myth has a foundation in reality. You may not believe Moses parted the Red Sea in the same way the Ten Commandments movie showed or in a year-long worldwide flood, but I believe in a Moses who led the Jews out of Egypt and in a huge local flood in Mesopotamia that wiped out a civilization in the 3rd millennium, After all, even the ancient texts of other civilizations, written 300+ years after the narrated events, have kept a core of truth: let's just think of the Iliad and the discovery of Troy by Schliemann.

@Deus_Ex_Machina Fortunately I'm not that kind of person! As a Christian (to be more precise, a Catholic) I'm used to a multi-layered afterlife and, as far as I know, nothing in my religion forbids to believe the afterlife is only a spiritual and not physical place. So, whatever happens tomorrow, I'll be more than happy with the outcome.

@awkwardMEOW I'm a Christian and of course I don't share your worry. I think a good compromise would be a scientifically reasonable place within the physical universe (or in a parallel dimension/pocket universe) where the conscience of people are transferred. The thing may simply stay god-less, with no spiritual implication at all, and indicating Missy is an entity of god-like nature such as the Eternals, the Guardians or the Celestial Toymaker. In that case, the creation of the world by a sentient entity would be left to the viewer and Missy would be responsible for using her powers or technology to create a home for the dead that inspired the concept of afterlife in every religion.

@TheDreamer... the Oncoming Planeteer. OR the Valeyard was born in the Doctor's timestream, as Eleven was supposed to be the last Doctor, as an echo of the Doctor-that-never-was between Ten and Eleven (the incarnation that was meant to replace Tennant's in Journey's End).

@Danitronic As far as I hope the Terrible Zodin will make a debut on Doctor Who, I believe she should meet all Doctors in a multi-doctor story and not just being restricted to Twelve. I don't think Missy is the Zodin, I always imagined her more like the Racnoss or something like that, a monster with big claws and teeth.

@Joaocarllos_ Honestly, the best argument against River being Missy is: why does she call him "boyfriend" when they're actually married?

@seventhday It's one of the most painful waiting periods of my life. I thought The Day of the Doctor would've deserved that title, but the Series 8 finale is killing me. The good thing is that probably I might be restored to life as a Cybermen and sit down on my couch this Saturday, just in time to watch Dark Water with some new cybernetic eyes!

@Diana1992 is anticipated for Dark Water @Regenerated Catterson doesn't exist! I think Death (from the Virgin New Adventures and the BF "Master" audio) would be a good candidate. She's been the Doctor's constant companion (as by Clive's words in "Rose") and she may be a good entity such as the Eternals. But of course, that's just a random thing and I don't think it's likely to be the solution to this problem.

@DocWhoFan I wish I could resist 2 weeks, but I prefer to discover this week who Missy is, and then proceed with the rest of the show. The cliffhanger, at least, will work properly with a short gap between the 2 episodes.

@The Living Angel is Regenerating On point (3): She might be the real Clara who got stuck in the time scar on Trenzalore and "chose" the current Clara between the billions of possible Clara-echoes. Just a suggestion, I'm not even sure it might work.

@The Lazy Cat: Clara Detective Curious, you wrote MWTV rather than DWTV. Does that stand for "Missy Who TV"? Is that a lapsus to say that Missy is the Doctor? Oh OK, I think I'm reading too much... LOL

@Stradiwhovius @Tardis Stowaway i wrote the same thing somewhere else on this website. Yes, you're right Stradiwhovius. It's like the scene in the trailer for The Name of the Doctor when we see Strax willing to kill Vastra - we might think he's evil, but he's not, he's just being rewritten as if he never met the Doctor. I think the situation might be very similar.

@Exalos @Antee991166 @TheIdleIdol He is from between the 11th and 12th regenerations. What if the aborted regeneration between Ten and Eleven created a Watcher-like entity that slept in the Doctor's mindscape, got a first chance to re-emerge as the Dreamlord, and finally got to escape as an echo in the Doctor's timestream on Trenzalore becoming a persona on his own?

@TheElusiveWhovian Honestly, imho it depends on the story. This Series did what Series 7 couldn't do for the most part. It found the right balance and the stories don't generally look too rushed. You watch them and they look like 50-55 minutes long, but they're stll 45 minutes. There were evident script problems in 2013 for the most part, and the current Series didn't demand two-parters. Still very happy with a two-part finale, I think that's one of the few cases where the traditional 45-minute slot isn't enough.

@The Lazy Cat Has Gone to Heaven... With Clara. What if Clara isn't evil, but just wants to stop the Doctor from doing something? For example, if stopping the Doctor would make it possible to save Danny after a cyberconversion? That's not being evil, that's being against the Doctor's decision and that's all... I don't really get why you all think going against the Doctor means being necessarily evil...

@Please call me Gus Well, the computer parallell has its strenghts. For example,  you can rewrite and delete some files, but you can't delete the system files without causing a system failure, unless you replace it with a new, coherent and functioning version of the same file. This is exactly how time works. There are many events that can be rewritten. There are a few events that can't be rewritten without a paradox that makes time crash. And there's a few possibilities to change a fundamental event by tricking time such as at Lake Silencio or with Gallifrey's apparent destruction.

@4sure @The Lazy Cat Has Gone to Heaven... With Clara. I don't agree. Everytime I get a past reference, I'm thirsty with more episodes from the past to be seen. Showing facts from Series 7 may push people to watch the previous Series and that's positive. Doctor Who has always been a continuity-heavy show and, if done properly, that's just a brilliant fact..

Flatline, no doubt. Mummy had its very interesting moments, but there's something Flatline does that is brilliant to me: Clara finally discovers that you can't be the Doctor and be always sincere, loving, caring etc. When there's hundreds, thousands or even millions of possible victims, you don't have to cry. The Doctor stated that in Mummy, but it was only in Flatline that Clara walked in Capaldi's shoes and discovered that he was right after all. Also, the Boneless were a wonderful monster, I watched this episode 2 in 2 hours and that's the first time it happens to me on an episode that isn't a series opener!

@Moffat'sLittleHelper - is surrounded by trees! I hope not, being a showrunner sometimes is a terrible burden that might ruin creativity. Mathieson needs to be a 3-episode-per-season writer or at maximum a co-showrunner.

@HowieFisher Series 8 is on the opposite pole to Series 6. It is difficult to me to find an episode I hate, and at the same time it's different to decide an episode I love the most because, hey, I love Deep Breath, Listen, The Caretaker, Kill The Moon and Flatline about 100% and appreciate the rest of the Series. And that's something new, didn't feel like that since Series 4 and I can say this is even better. Twelve has become my New Series favourite Doctor in a bunch of episodes and the stories are really well done. I'm finally starting to hype for the finale now... but it's so said the Series is running so fast!
