I wouldn't call him a comedian. He is best known these days for a comedic show but he's more actor than comedian.

The rotor is inside the column, I guess. Don't often hear it called a column though.

Fully agree with you on the Moff. He's not perfect and I don't agree with everything he does but you can't deny he has helped raise the international profile of the show and has helped ensure we have no fear of another cancellation to worry about any time soon. I don't mind that Who doesn't always get it right. I would mind if it went away again. I've seen that once.. And I never want to see it again!

I wouldn't dream of spoiling it for anyone. I'll offer to write a spoiler free review for the site although I imagine DWTV will already have someone lined up for that.

No no, no spoilers. It would ruin my plot to become Moffat's best friend and confidante (and I'm already shaky enough on how to make that happen..)

Trevor Cooper in the Robin Hood one.. nice, I like seeing actors from classic Who come back for the new series. He was Takis in Revelation of the Daleks. And of course his sidekick in that serial, Lilt, was played by the chap who was Lumic's head of security in Rise/Age. Name escapes me.

This is probably totally off, but I notice 2 things.

1. Clara doesn't appear to be in any of these photos.

2. The episode before it is the hush hush one we know nothing about. It's being filmed last.

The finale, from the title and the props, and the character names, seems to deal with themes of death and the afterlife. Clara missing. Big secret episode beforehand. Moffat known for killing and unkilling characters. Including Clara, twice.

Just a thought.

Rest in peace.. we promise - sounds more like an advertising slogan from me. But what are they selling, and to Who?

Capaldi's message to the art school.. that bit at the end, right before he goes into the TARDIS.. The modulation of his voice is SO Tom Baker.

I would love to see a story with Davros without the Daleks. Or with minimal Dalek presence. Big Finish did it with their play "Davros" and it's still my favourite of all their releases.

Davros was always my number one villain. The Daleks are quite binary creatures, and whenever the show tries to portray them as more it doesn't really work. Davros gives Dalek stories so much more scope.

If fandom teaches us anything it's that we don't have to agree with the writer. I voted for Beast Below.

I know the bit you mean. Over the initial "diddle-dee-dum, diddle-dee-dum, diddle-dee-dum" bit is an ascending horn part that was added in series 5 onwards. That's technically known as the "baaa... Baa baa baaaaa... Baaa... Baa BAA biddle BAAAAA" section. I don't mind that bit but I'd like them to remove the couple of notes later on that sound like nobody told the horn player the rest of the band has stopped playing. After the first "ooo-wee-oooo.. WEEooooh" of the melody is a "hwonk hwooooonk" that just sounds out of place.

This comment probably sounds like it comes from a man having a small breakdown but it totally makes sense in my head.

That'll be "Project Lazarus". Which I highly recommend to anyone, a very novel take on the multi-Doctor story.

Baker definitely an impersonator. Fairly sure the Davison is also fake although I have to say a very good one.

Excellent! If they bring him back I hope it's a new actor, perhaps with Simm coming back for a regeneration scene. Love Simm as an actor but his Master never fully won me over. I know many disagree but I think in the effort to match his personality up with Tennant's he lost a little of that menace that the others had. I'm hoping for an older, more serious Master, preferably with a plan that makes some sense, hypnosis and traps!

If the Dance rumour is true, that'll do me just fine.

Same, except it made me think of Genesis of the Daleks. You know, the "what if there's something nasty waiting at the other end" bit. Or indeed climbing up the waste pipe with Jo in the Green Death. Ah, ventilation shafts..

I assumed it was Perry Cox from Scrubs. Actually, he would have played really well against Col.

If Peter Capaldi only gets one series, Peter Capaldi will be majorly p*ssed off.

As an episode that idea on its would perhaps suffer from a lack of monster/threat. It would make a KILLER scene though, powerful image.

I have nothing to add but my total agreement. I can kinda see Moffat's argument but I'd have loved to have seen McGann taking a more pivotal role in the special.

One small point. When Tennant's Doctor made the comment about the David Morrissey Doctor, it was before the meta-crisis regeneration so he still had two regenerations left at that point.
