Quite an interesting revelation from DWM... not their most interesting of course, that was the one about the BBC subtitling team screwing up on the broadcast of Flatline and turning Danny's line of "I've got our bench" to "What up. *female canine*". I don't think I'll ever be able to watch that episode the same way again...

Way of thanking the departing actress? Which departing actress would that be, because Miss Coleman certainly isn't gone yet.

@Baker Street is back to normal!  Depends, normally no longer than a month after broadcast (and normally in a few week block). 5-8 will probably get announced together in a week or so.

@Amy is uniting the Earth Kingdom!  That depends on your point of view. If I was in their position I'd definitely be counting from 2008 (i.e. The Eleventh Hour). They say its been 16 (?) months between Asylum and Dinosaurs. They could very well be as late at early 2016 by then. If there was a similar gap with A Town Called Mercy (bearing in mind we didn't actually see the Doctor pick them up and they definitely were not actively travelling with him), that could be well into 2017. Another such gap could make The Power of Three span 2019-2020, which would of course allow them to squeeze in the wave in Cwmatff before going off with the Doctor for their final journeys.


They say it hasn't been ten years for the Earth, that doesn't mean it has been less, it could very easily have been more (indeed it seems likely time on Earth probably has passed faster than it did for them)..

Rather fascinating that over the past few years a lot of episodees have been rated 12 yet went out at 7pm, now they have to go out at 8pm because its "darker" but they only get a PG rating.

@The 4th Doctor  Tom Baker came up with the idea when he was departing in 1980, Sydney Newman later suggested it again as a way to "save the show" when casting the Seventh Doctor. It certainly isn't new.

Have to ask, why is Clara not at any point raising questions about Orson? Time can be rewritten certainly, but there must be an alternative (and possible) timeline where Danny lives, surely that's what they should have been looking for... unless of course she's pregnant.

@mayotango131 Going even further back, when the show started it was all about Ian and Barbara, the companion was always the viewer's eyes into this world. The Doctor was never the main character, the show was about the mystery of the Doctor and his world, not the Doctor himself.

The show was always about the companions at first. The Doctor was realy just there getting them from A to B and acting mysterious, this is just getting it back to "Doctor Who" rather than "The Doctor Show".

There are plenty of creatures that are capable of impregnating themselves in the real world, who is to say this creature isn't the same? It's certainly got enough mass to do so (where all that extra mass came from is a bit of a mystery though).
