I believe some classics are and some aren't. I've purchased a few classics from the uk. The 'Bred for War - Sontaran Collection' for instance, plays fine on my Australian ps3 but my uk purchase of 'The Cybermen Set' doesn't. Odd...

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.

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.

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!

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.

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 ;)

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

I was prepared for it this year like I was every other year since DoctorWhoTVs first April Fools article back in 2010 when they announced the Kandyman would be returning for the scene in the Pandorcia Chamber hahahah. This one was, like all other years, very well written and the way they made it fit in with recent casting and filming pictures was surprisingly clever. If I wasn't prepared for it, you defiantley would have had me DoctorWhoTV!

In my personal opinion Danny Pink is not the Master nor will he be hypnotised by the master etc etc; my guess is he wil simply be manipulated with words, The Master will lie and promise him things and twist Danny's thoughts and emotions with clever ways of words.
