@Mercy Reborn2 That's a good theory! The child crying because he foresaw his future as a Warrior and didn't want to become what he was meant to be is, ultimately, an idea that cries in my mind since The Day of the Doctor.

@Timhogan More than the PERIOD I would say THE EVENTS. In the same way that Amy and Rory can't be accessed by the Doctor because Manhattan is time-locked from the Doctor's point of view...

@AndrewMedbury You can't know for sure if there aren't wolves on Gallifrey. Convergent evolution may have produced a wolf-like creature on Gallifrey in the same way that the Time Lords look very similar to humans and the English word for "wolf" is used there as the nearest possible translation of the concept. After all, we've seen alien werewolves before in Tooth and Claw.

@ilyootha   At this point, I'm afraid the Doctor will click "Listen" to this poll, causing Clara's anger in Kill The Moon (ok, I just revealed the plot of an episode... what a difficult decision and what a terrible crime he committed XD). Seriously, this is a difficult choice for many of us.

@Sam Davern I don't know why, but Tomb of the Cybermen scares me to death. Seeds of Doom? I agree on that.

@Luna23 I was never frightened by the Weeping Angels on second view of Blink, while I can still feel the shivers on my back after 3 rewatches of Listen. Also, it's been 2 days now since I began hearing noises in the night while in bedroom, and I must concentrate and say "There's nothing under your bed". I think Listen has proven to be much more effective, awakening a much older fear I thought I had forgotten.

Don't even need to wait for a choice. It's Listen. No doubt. Don't misread me. I LOVE BLINK and always will. Still, that episode was a Doctor-lite and companion-lite story. If you want a Blink-like episode where the Doctor and companion are present, Listen is your episode. Perfect chemistry between the characters and loads of dark moments. Blink is just slightly behind with Midnight a close third place in my list of most frightening episodes in New Who. And I must say they remain in my list of 10 favourite episodes since the reboot.

@Acheron777Barker That is my favourite explanation for the end-of-the-universe entity, but the behind-the-bed-of-Rupert entity is certainly something else... I love the idea of the Floof, never heard about it but it seems likely, considering that the Moff himself invented that monster in 2007 and he's used to do the same with other characters from the spin-offs.

I voted YES, but I don't presume it's the same being in every instance something is waiting under your bed. That's the only error the Doctor made, in my opinion - if they behave the same way, they must be the same thing. Not at all. The Doctor mentioned Evolution and sciences teaches that nature designs the living beings to have similar characteristics and behaviour - in other words, convergent evolution. For example: fins have been developped independently and at very different times by fish, reptiles (icthyosaurs, plesiosaurs) and cetaceans (whales, dolphins etc). Similarly, wings have been developped by birds, pterosaurs and bats. 



As for Doctor Who, the same evolutionary hunting technique may have been developped independently many times in the universe. The clockwork droids from The Girl in the Fireplace used the same trick, and something similar may have been adopted by the entity outside Orson Pink's ship or by the mysterious being in Rupert's room. Even the Silence and the Midnight entity use similar techniques to "stay in the shadows".

@Captain Grumpy As a fan, I love when the tone changes, so I'm more than ready for an action-packed episode like Time Heist. I'm sure I will watch it with an open mind and appreciate it. Up to now, the only episode I can't fully digest is Robot of Sherwood, the rest of the Series was fantastic so far! Listen 10/10; Deep Breath 9/10; Into The Dalek 8/10; Robot of Sherwood 6/10. I'm sure Time Heist will be either 7/10 or 8/10.

@Chris502 @joe4 The DWM comics with Abslom Daak... YES. Those without him... yes, only if they don't contradict established TV and BF continuity, I suppose. There must be some kind of precedence. And everything that is contradicting must belong to some aborted/negated timeline in some fashion.

@SonicTheHedgehogRules Not all of them, that would be impossible. Otherwise, Ace would be dead and 7 would've met Sarah Jane, which contradicts the TV Series.

I would say that all DWM comics with Abslom Daak are canon, though.

@SonicTheHedgehogRules I mostly agree with you, but can't agree on the canonicity of the whole DWM range. I consider the 7th Doctor stories to be canon up to Ground Zero which was the first 7th Doctor story to be published after the introduction of the 8th Doctor. The main reason is that there are too many contradictions from this point onwards (Ace's death, 7 meeting Sarah Jane etc.). For the VNAs, I take "Love and War" to be the first non-canon novel because it's contradicted by BF, which takes precedence due to the mention of the 8th Doctor's companions in "The Night of the Doctor". Something must be left behind. As a general principle, anyway, what you said is right.

@Whogasms They didn't miss it. They didn't watch it because it was defined as an extremely scary episode and children were essentially discouraged to watch it. I'm sure the iPlayer figures would balance this and give it the 1st place this season.

@Mr Pink " I love humans. Always seeing patterns in things that aren't there." Yesterday's episode didn't have high viewing figures because the parents didn't want to show such a terrifying episode to the younger audience. "Listen" was listed as one of the scariest episodes in DW history, and certainly the most scary this season. Didn't you think that? Children are NOT the audience, adults are finally taken in consideration for the very first time since the 2005 reboot and I'm more than happy with this. Childish stuff out of the window for a while are a success and Capaldi has become my all-time favourite Doctor. Sorry for McGann, Tennant and Smith, sorry even for C. Baker and McCoy. Capaldi has everything I really wanted for a new Doctor, it's like fresh air and it's good to have a Doctor like this every 3-4 incarnations.

@WhoFandom My theory is that it's the Death Zone. Gallifrey ordinarily has a red sky and exotic vegetation, while that desert has a blue sky, yellow sand and generally a terrestrial landscape like the Death Zone on Gallifrey in The Five Doctors. Since it's probably still Gallifrey but, at the same time, a completely different ecosystem, we might deduce that the Death Zone may be somewhat on a separate plan of existence/dimension/whatever as it was quite difficult to get into the Death Zone (or better, you just can't step in like any other ordinary place). That may have protected the three Doctors in The Day of the Doctor had they pressed the Big Red Button.

Capaldi's accent isn't the problem. Sometimes he speaks too fast and in a low voice. Still, being Italian, I don't even bother. I just re-watch the episode with subs and I'm fine, although I can grasp most of the dialogues and, let's be honest, Capaldi is just great and I don't mind his accent at all, I even appreciate it at times!

@Unibot How do you time-cook a Dalek soul? (1) Take a Dalek and extract the mutant from the casing. (2) Use a soul extrapolator to remove the soul from the mutant flesh (3) Push the Dalek soul through the time vortex with no capsule so that the time vortex cooks the soul (4) Remove the Dalek soul when golden and serve it, still hot from the vortex, in a  beautiful Dalekanium dish.

@PeterGecko My sweetest dream has been very recent: a 10th anniversary episode with Eccleston's post-regeneration adventure against the Autons leading directly to "Rose". The story contained a reference to every and each story arc and companion from Series 1-7, plus a cammeo by the Twelfth Doctor. None of these references was such as to spoil the story arcs... it was more like a season opening, only it opened all New Who story arcs leaving many open questions for a new viewer, a sort of Series 1 Episode 0... I found it epic, should write it down sometimes...

@Seaborn W Deadman Two pages? That's probably just the pre-title sequence and a few other things. Still, I must say that I had the same temptation and, fortunately, I searched for the scripts but couldn't find them online anymore. I thank God for that, sometimes Providence is stronger than me!
