I'm thinking Master but as a close second I'd say either the Krynoids or Vashta Nerada. Both of which could be the foe for episode 10 from the description. Personally I think it'll be the Krynoids. They're a major foe not in the sense of appearances they've had because they've only had one. But in the sense that most fans of classic Doctor Who know them, like for example the Zygons.

Wow. These are all brilliant but oh my god...the fourth one. That is an amazing picture of the new Doctor! My new favourite pic for sure.

Hahaha this is priceless! Already love him. And I loved him before this clip so yeah I just love him even more now and I'll love him even more than now when I see the full episode and I'll just stop now.

I've been looking forward to this one ever since filming pictures were released. Sounds fantastic and it'll be nice to have a bit of light in what looks to be a dark series, nothing wrong with dark by the way! I think Mark Gatiss has been amazing with his stories set in the past. He does a great job of handling the dialogue of characters and fine tuning it so they sound how people really would've back in the different eras and times he written for. I think he's also one of the writers who gets just the general background and feel of each era right down to the wire. Fantastic writer and with The Crimson Horror just gone I have faith that he'll do good once again! Not gonna lie I even thought that Cold War was really quite decent. It's probably the most forgettable episode amongst series 7 but in its defence there are a lot of big ideas in that series so it's understandable it gets lost among the others sometimes.

Every time I want to get a new friend into Doctor Who I start them at Rose, mainly because when they get to Day of the Doctor, it will be a much bigger pay off, even though they haven't seen the classic series etc. Anyway, I always have to pause it at the moment when the bin burps and explain that Doctor Who isn't always that cheesey. As for Aliens of London/World War Three, I just skip it all together when showing friends. I like the idea of the story but I just hate Russell's joke with the farting...

Smith and Jones is one story and Frontier in Space had a prison called the Lunar Collony. But I think might actually have some relation to the weather station from The Moonbase
2 days, 11 hours ago on Moffat Previews Series 8 in Radio Times
Deep Breath - Can't wait for this one! The beginning of what I think is going to be a cracker of an era! My cinema ticket has been booked ;)
Into the Dalek - The more I hear about this one the more I like the sound of it. I thought Phil and Russell wrote a masterpiece in 'The Waters of Mars', so to have Steven onboard with Phil this time will result in, I think, a fantastic and completely original Dalek story. Bring it on!
Robot of Sherwood - Medieval times, Robin Hood and a Robot? That is why I love this show. And seriously is it just me that thinks the title screams classic Doctor Who? Anyway really looking forward to this one and have been since filming pictures were released.
Listen - The description of it sounds very intriguing. From what I've heard its terrifying so that's a big plus in my books, also, I heard about one scene from the episode. I won't say what happens but I will say this: the scene will have fans talking....it sounds like it will be really really cool
Time Heist - Ahh yes! A new planet! I love Who episodes set on new planets. That's what Doctor Who should be. Yes the idea of the Doctor and Clara breaking into the most dangerous bank in the cosmos....now that, that is cool. Let's just say this description has amped up my excitement for it....big time. Also, it will be interesting to see how Moffat works with Thompson, I really hope it's a far better story than his last two.
The Caretaker - Gareth Roberts is back! I must confess I've been a fan of all his stories except Closing Time, which I must admit was only ruined by its resolution. Apart from that I thought it was hilarious! Phil this one sounds exciting though. I can't wait to see Coal Hill properly and I think the monster for this one looks absolutely gorgeous! Also, it'll be really cool to see some comedy from Capaldi as well, I'd say it'll have some because it's Gareth writing...oh and because the Doctor is acting as the schools caretaker. Plenty of room for laughs there.
Kill the Moon - I can't be the only one who thought this description sounded the best? It sounds like a story you'd see during the classic era. And that's not a bad thing at all! Spider-like creatures? A shuttle on a suicide mission to the moon? A mining base full of corpses and a terrible dilemma? Ummm I know which episode I'm most looking forward to!
Mummy on the Orient Express - This one should be cool, there hasn't been much Egyptian stuff in Doctor Who. There was Pyramids of Mars, which is an amazingggg story and then there was a glimpse of the Doctor in Egypt in 'Dinosaurs on a Spaceship' but apart from that not much else. So it's nice to see a mummy be the monster of the week for this one. Also, a story set on a train? Oh yes I'm excited. And the thought of not just Capaldi's Incarnation of the Doctor but just the Doctor himself at his most deadliest and ruthless sounds fantastic! Bring it onnnn
Flatline - This one sounds like a Doctor-lite episode to me. Sounds a little creepy as well. Apparently there was an interview with the writer of this one and he said that the monster in one of his episodes was apparently to scary to show in the trailer. I wouldn't be surprised if this is the episode the monster he referred to is from.
In the Forest of the Night - I didn't think much of this one before but now it's up there with Kill the Moon as my most anticipated story of the series. The idea is so intriguing and wow, I hope I'm not the only one thinking this could be the second televised story of the Krynoids! A monster so interesting that it's amazing they haven't returned on screen since they last battled the Fourth Doctor. Also, with the book 'Trenzalore Tales' that was released last year having a stroy featuring the Krynoids it's clear the writers haven't forgotten about them, I'd say it's really quite likely they could be in this.
Dark Water/Death in Heaven: Interesting to say the least. It sounds like either Clara or Danny betray the Doctor, and with Danny not being a main companion or a friend of the Doctor's for that long I'd be surprised if it wasn't him. The quote makes me think we're all meant to believe it's the Doctor talking to Clara but I wouldn't be so sure. I suppose we'll just have to see! Anyway, like I said, looking forward to this finale and I really hope it does the Cybermen some proper justice. They have been fantastic in stories such as Earthshock, The Invasion, Tomb of the Cybermen and Age of steel. They've still got heaps to offer, the potential just needs to be realised used to the greatest of Steven's abilities

Sounds fantastic and with Peter at the helm I think this has potential to be the best Dalek story of the revival series. Also, I'm reading comments saying "this could be an actual scary Dalek story". Now I know we are all entitled opinions but I honestly thought that Asylum of the Daleks really was terrifying. Some amazing directing, lighting and ideas made the Daleks proper menacing and scary again and I can't see how people could've thought that wasn't a dark and gritty Dalek tale.

I bought a ticket to the cinema viewing and the running time says 103 minutes. If it's only 75 mins long that means theres 25 minutes worth of trailers before it...I don't think so, I think Deep Breath is going to be a little longer than we've been told.

Now that would be cool!!
4 weeks, 1 day ago on SFX #251 Previews Series 8
Yes you're absolutely right in saying that. Until I read through the comments I'd completely forgotten about the rumoured episode title but had thought a while ago when I heard it that it would link with that phone call he received during the final scene of series 5. I guess I was getting a little too excited hahah just the idea of a darker doctor almost screams for a Dreamlord episode or reference.
1 month ago on SFX #251 Previews Series 8
Episode 8. A call back to something in Matts first series. The Dreamlord. You heard it here first guys.
P.s that's not a spoiler that's just what I personally think haha
The way I look at it is that Doctor Who has already had a 10th anniversary episode. It's called The Three Doctors. Last year we celebrated the 50th. So why go backwards by celebrating the 10th? If anything just have a new who monster in an episode as a nod to the 10 years and to go further have Eccelston return in a story. So you have the first new who doctor and the latest. That sounds good to me. There doesn't need to be any heavy advertisement. Just a cool little multi doctor story as a cool little nod towards it being 10 years since the first new series.
1 month ago on Will There Be a 10th Anniversary Special for the Revival?
The Daleks, The Invasion, The Mutants, Genesis of the Daleks, The Talons of Weng-Chiang, The Seeds of Doom and The Armageddon Factor are some of my favourites.

The expression on Capaldi's face on the cover of The Crawling Terror is so fierce! If you held up a picture of him in that stance with that expression in that costume, at the beginning of 2013 and told me that character would be a big part of the show in the following series I would honestly have guessed it was The new Master or Valeyard, anything but the Doctor. God I love this show and roll on Series 8!

1 month, 1 week ago on Doctor Who Series 8 TV Launch Trailer
Such an amazing trailer. The music and the delivery of dialogue certainly looks to confirm the show will go down a darker path which in my opinion is not a bad thing, not a bad thing at all! Not long now arghhhh too excited for this
In Matts first season we had the long awaited return of the Weeping Angels and Silurians. We also had a Dalek story and in the finale we had Daleks again as well as Cybermen, Sontarans, Silurians, Autons, Judoon and also, if you want to count it, apparently there were Zygons, Tereleptiles, Slitheen, Dravins, Sycorax, Draconians and more at the Pandorica. Originally they were all meant to actually be physically seen in the Pandorica Chamber but they didn't have enough of a budget by the end of the series to do it. So I wouldn't put it past Moffat to load up the season with classics again

That voice has got a hint of Dalek for sure. Doesn't sound like Julian Bleach either so I'd say they have another new actor playing him.
Amy: You look human?
The Doctor: no, you look Timelord. We came first.
Pretty sure that's saying Gallifrey and Timelords came before Earth and Humans ^

1 month, 3 weeks ago on Series 8 DVD / Blu-Ray Dated
It makes perfect sense. Some good points you've listed as well. The chameleon arch for instance. I thought it could rewrite a Timelords DNA into anything they desired but if you're right and it's only human, then that raises the question of why human? Maybe you're onto something. I would like the idea a lot more if it did turn out not to be very human from the future, but just a branch of them that evolve that much and go a seperate way from the other humans etc. but who knows aye? Who nose. Of course Moffat does, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see if he drops another huge bombshell ;)
1 month, 3 weeks ago on An Earthly Gallifrey
I'm sorry but the Doctor and the Timelords are not human. The Timelords hardly knew about Earth and humans! just look at the scene in the End of Time where Rassilon debates in the war rooms with fellow Timelords.
Also, why would the Doctor call himself the last of his race if he is basically just an evolved human from the future? Why would be be so sad and distraught when he's on earth so often anyway mixing with his own kind as if they weren't? I'll tell you why: because he isn't human or an evolved human for that matter...
I was gonna say season 12 but didn't haha, completely agree. Those three seasons are the three best for constantly top quality stories.
The Ark in Space, Genesis of the Daleks, Terror of the Zygons, Pyramids of Mars, Android Invasion, The Brain of Morbius, Seeds of Doom, Deadly Assassin, Robots of Death, The Talons of Weng-Chiang and Horror of Fang Rock are all stories that are among my favourite of all time.
I also loved Robot, The Sontaran Experiment, Masque of Mandragora, Image of the Fendahl, The Sun Makers and The Invasion of Time

I think the best Doctor Who has ever been was during the Holmes and Hinchcliffe era, namely seasons 13 and 14. absolute gems.

1 month, 3 weeks ago on Moffat Teases Massive Series 9 Cliffhanger
For those fans who thought Capaldi was only staying for one season I think from this we can see he'll be on in season 9 for sure. Davies and Moff both knew how 10 and 11 would go pretty early on so I'd think it's the same with Capaldi. I doubt Moff has already planned the Next Doctor's season so it's pretty obvious Peters staying on for AT LEAST a second season.
Hoping for Gaiman. If not him then Toby Whithouse or even Neil Cross
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Series 8: The Almost Complete Line-Up
As soon as I clicked on it the first thing that went through my head before I read the words were "omg it's the Master's Tardis with its chameleon circuit. But now I'm not so sure. "We promise." Hmm what could that mean? Very intriguing to say the least. With so much in the last three episodes circulating around the name 'Doctor' and how it's a promise he made I can't help but wonder if that same type of name promise fits in here. Clara was a big part of what made the Doctor change his mind and not destroy Gallifrey, she also played the pivotal role in getting the Doctor his new set of regenerations. I'll go out on a limb here with this theory. What if Clara ends up being fatally wounded or something like that and Gallifrey is found and blah blah blah and her last wish is directly to the Timelords, she asks them to uphold the name Timelord and become the wise old watchers she knew they once were because the Doctor has explained it before. The Timelords are now back but this time they have a promise to keep. They aren't corrupt like the Timelords we've seen in The End of Time a fewClassic stories. They are once again beings of piece and watchers of the universe. They will uphold the name Timelord and keep their promise to the girl that changed the Doctor's mind and stopped Gallifrey being destroyed. I have no idea hahaha I can't think what else the "we promise" could mean but obviously it's going to be big finale! Looking forward to it, and the rest of season 8 for that matter! :)

Donna can't rember the Doctor and as you said Rose and River are very unlikely. I don't think its Sally but yeah the one I've been thinking is its a Clara shard. Although surely Clara would realise its her when she looks at her? And assuming she managed to keep her face hidden from normal Clara to not raise questions, then surely Clara would recognize her own voice? Anyhow it's the best explanation until Moffat gives one on screen.

The one thing I'm still missing is who was the woman in the shop? Has there been an answer to this yet? The one that told Clara the Doctor's phone number so that they could actually meet. "The best helpline in the universe. That's what the woman said". Who is this woman....
Could it be the Master? Or is that just me and wishful thinking...
2 months, 1 week ago on Series 8 Filming: Smaller on the Outside
I sorry but did you even watch the episode? You do realise everything from series 1-the specials is still intact don't you? The doctors says the timelines are out of sync and when they all return to their own points in his life they'll forget what happened. That's the irony of it all. The doctor will live through the Russell T Davies era grieving and in pain about how he destroyed Gallifrey in the Time War when actually he didn't. It's a brilliant idea and makes rewatches even more painful for viewers as they wish they could just tell the Doctor themselves that it's still out there! He saved it!
2 months, 1 week ago on Why Bringing Back Gallifrey is Wrong
The theme tune for many, is what makes Doctor Who Doctor Who. It's so famous and recognisable that whenever you hear it, even the average viewer who hasn't watched a full episode of the show will know where the music is from:'Doctor Who'. That's why it shouldn't and won't ever change.

That would have been amazing! And surely there would've been a funny K-9 moment in there too! Gosh Liz's passing still hurts me badly, such a wonderful woman. There are times when I literally just stand there and remember I'll never see that fantastic actress come face to face with the current Doctor in a new situation again and it hurts :(
4 months, 1 week ago on Tom Baker Reunion with Sarah Jane Was Planned
Very conflicted with this one. I abosutely adore certain moments in all of these stories. The Parting of the Ways really does feel like there's no way out and has some truly emotional moments. The Big Bang introduces the Fez, wraps up the series 5 arc perfectly and has a couple of amazing Matt monologues. Again Name of the Doctor is a whopping story that is such a good ending to the series and does such cool little fan pleasing things. It introduces John Hurt in a crazy cliffhanger, brings back the Great Intelligence again, has a montage of Clara saving all the Doctor's and right at the start shows the most amazing little moment of Hartnell stealing the Tardis with Susan! Thinking about it now I'm going with The Parting of the Ways. I remember sitting there as a 9 year old boy (who had seen EarthShock on tv weeks earlier and loved it, which trigger me to tape the new episodes which had the same title but not the same cast, which confused me) and gasping as this big Dalek (The emperor) was revealed to be in the shadows, shouting as Jack died and as Rose was sent home and crying as my new favourite hero vanished in fire only to be replaced by a smiling weasel before the credits rolled. Haahah oh the memories.
