@The Lazy Cat  @MetamorphmagusWho  Well, here's hoping we have another 12 more episodes with her after Last Christmas.

@The Lazy Cat   Once my belief in my theory dropped and I began to think that she's staying, one of my first thoughts was "Yeah, she's not going to survive at the end of Series 9 is she?". What with everything Moffat etc has said about her not being able to live an ordinary life...

@TheCyberDoctor is Upgrading Christmas  Personally, I'm hoping it'll introduce another companion to travel with both The Doctor and Clara. That way not only do we get Clara (Yay!) before she dies (Nooo! If she's staying... I think that would be a very iconic departure...even if I don't want her to die... but it would fit... and I can't see Moffat doing much else) but we also get another companion to add a different and interesting dynamic.

@supermoff  @The Lazy Cat  @Beasts_a_Snarling is a Christmas KANDY  I do kind of feel sorry for the Cybermen (in the context of their stories anyway). Their first New Who story, whilst not being the best episode that they've been in, is the best appearance by them. Though DIH/DW is an outstanding finale, the Cybermen in it weren't as good as in ROTC/TAOS.

@ilyootha, agent of C.L.A.R.A. @The Lazy Cat  @supermoff  @Notsosmartguy   That's similar to how I feel about Series 6, it's not the best series but it's one of my personal favourites and it holds a special place in my heart (not because it was my first real time series though).

@The Lazy Cat  @Who is the Doctor  It sure is a great episode, though in terms of Xmas Specials I love A Christmas Carol even more.

@supermoff  @MetamorphmagusWho @The Lazy Cat  @Notsosmartguy   I've also got to admit that I'm not the biggest fan of Asylum. Oswin's by far the best part of the episode and some of the criticisms given to it I don't agree with (lack of classic Daleks wasn't really it's fault, so much as the promotion and hype connected to it) but on the other hand the Amy and Rory divorce subplot was done extremely poorly.

@supermoff  @The Lazy Cat  @Notsosmartguy   I'd say Dinosaurs on a Spaceship (I think it's really underrated), A Town Called Mercy, The Power of Three (Again, underrated), The Angels Take Manhatten, The Snowmen, The Bells of Saint John, The Rings of Akhaten, Hide and The Name of the Doctor were the masterpieces of the series, personally. Overall it's a pretty underrated series, though there are definitely flaws.

Oh well, at least he's determined to write an episode eventually with Capaldi. In terms of Series 9 I wouldn't mind any previous writer returning. Even Matthew Graham... just because his previous episodes were pretty rubbish (Fear Her is at the moment, the only episode of Who that I rate lower than a 5/10) doesn't mean that his next one will be as well.

@Malohkeh @Shane Michaels  I also recall Moffat saying that there wouldn't be an actual special... I think.


Though, that doesn't mean that there won't be something to acknowledge 10 years (I hope).

@Shane Michaels  I think having all of them return for the 10th anniversary of New Who will be a bit excessive, however I wouldn't mind having the return of say Martha/Mickey or Jack, provided that the story benefits from having them and they're not just there because they can be and because of the 10th anniversary of New Who. The dynamic between them and Twelve. would be interesting to say the least


I want there to be something to acknowledge the anniversary but I don't think there should be a big focus, at least not compared to the 50th. Having a returning companion (even just for a cameo) or alien that we haven't seen for a while for a single episode would suffice.

@Temporal Tomato, jumping on the B.A.N.D.W.A.G.O.N The year 2016 was mentioned in In The Forest of the Night (when talking about the Oak tree, I believe). Whilst The Doctor doesn't confirm this to be the year they're were in, it seems a bit random for him to just pick that specific year if not.

The only episodes I've seen here fully are Remembrance of the Daleks, Pyramids of Mars and The Greatest Show in the Galaxy and all three are amazing. I saw the first two episodes of Tomb of the Cybermen before the story, and others recorded from the Drama channel, had to be deleted.

Notice how it's 'You Are Dying' as opposed to 'You Are Going To Die'. Perhaps Clara gets stuck in a dream (maybe a dream crab gets her) but she doesn't know and The Doctor has to make her realise she isn't in reality as time's running out and at this point he's desperately trying to send a message?

I'm just going to wait and see what happens regarding Clara as we seem to be going round in circles. I will embrace the Xmas special and it's supposed weirdness, creepiness, sadness etc and if Clara leaves I'll probably cry about it afterwards, if she stays I'll probably cheer from the rooftops. But ultimately it won't detract from the overall quality of the episode (unless the way in which she leaves is rubbish) if it turns out it is her last Christmas on the show (unless of course she doesn't die and she then appears in the Xmas Special in X numbers of years time). I'll be excited for Series 9 no matter who's the companion, though I would love another series with Clara.

Right, after finally being able to watch the trailer (stupid Windows 8) I have to say... Wow. The 'You are dying' part seems very sinister. I also like how it starts off very Christmassy with the bells then goes all dark.

So basically what I think he's saying regarding Orson is that 'this is an answer, it may or may not be right'. So either he's leaving it for us to decide to go with this or make our own theory or he's not telling us the actual answer yet. So I'm going to say that if an answer isn't given in-universe by the end if the Xmas special I'm going to go with the theory that the Orson we saw was from a parallel universe in which Danny didn't die. And in another universe he's Teddy Lupin's grandson (and like Tonks and Teddy before him, is a Metamorphmagus) who's a Pink Soufflé Shipper and has had his memory of Dark Water and Death in Heaven erased accidentally (by George Weasley's great grandchild perhaps).

Ah, so basically all the 'foreshadowing' moments were just red herrings... Oh well, can't win all the time. I guess I'll find out when I pick up the new issue of DWM as to whether my main theory on Orson is correct then as apparently Moffat explains it a bit. I can see the quote now "Turns out Teddy Lupin's grandson is also a Metamorphmagus and a Pink Souffle shipper"

Or that one that stated he was from a parallel universe.

@The Lazy Cat is Santa Paws @Mikeyboss182  Well...

1. There's every chance that time has been rewritten, though I'm not a big fan of this idea.

2. The Orson that the two met exists in a parallel universe where Danny didn't die. The Doctor didn't realise this, and he has no reason to now since Orson didn't imply to The Doctor that Clara was his ancestor. So the events of Listen still occur. Why did the TARDIS take them to a parallel universe? I'm not sure yet. I'm still thinking. I'll post another comment if I think of something.

3. Clara at this point has already had the baby and she stops travelling with The Doctor because of this.

4. Danny already had a child with someone else. However, whilst this explains the 'family problems' Danny mentioned it doesn't really fit in with the 'time travelling great grandparent idea'.


I've actually got a good feeling about number two, thinking about it. But I need to find a reason as to why the TARDIS would take them there in the first place.

Over these last few weeks there seems to have been an explosion of fandom news. First the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser, then gameplay for Zelda U (as well as confirmation for the new Star Fox) now it's been revealed there's going to be Doctor Who and Sherlock attractions at a theme park. Now I just need a Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer or release date confirmation.

@Please call me Gus  Whilst, yes, I hold the theory that Clara's pregnant I don't think the post-it note refers to it. I don't think at that point she knew. Surely she'd tell him something like that face to face. And I don't think she'd want to 'be with Danny in the Nethersphere, the only way that she knew how' if it wasn't just herself she'd be sacrificing to do so.

@ilyootha, agent of C.L.A.R.A. @MetamorphmagusWho: Is that...Zelda U Gameplay?! @The Dreamer wants her Who Christmas NOW! @JacobHaggerty  Yeah, she'll be older than she would be if she wasn't travelling. My main aim though, really, was to try and get the years right so at least I'd have some idea as to when the episodes take place, even if it's more headcanon based on educated guesses. The only info we have is that she is definitely 27 in Deep Breath and Clara gives no indication that she didn't know that that was her proper age, meaning that her 27th birthday (November 2013) would more than likely have passed. I also do think the year is 2016 in ITFOTN, since it seems a bit random that The Doctor would pick that specific year to mention. Since Into the Dalek happens three week after Deep Breath (and provided that The Doctor drops her back off on Xmas Day) the former episode occurs in January 2014 leaving a space of 2-3 years for Series 8.

@The Dreamer wants her Who Christmas NOW! @JacobHaggerty @Switcharoo   I assumed that she turned 27 in November 2013 and that In The Forest of the Night does take place in 2016, 2-3 years later, making her either 29 or 30 depending on the time of year. If I'm right they don't mention any other age for her in the rest of the series. It would also explain why in The Caretaker Courtney's parents mention 'last year' when talking to Danny (though they could have been talking about the Maths Department in general) giving The Caretaker's year as 2015. So...


Time of the Doctor/Deep Breath - Christmas 2013, Clara's age: 27

Into the Dalek - Early 2014, CA: 27

The Caretaker - 2015, CA: 28 or 29

In The Forest of the Night - 2016, CA: 29 or 30


Feel free to disprove my headcanon if I'm missed anything or if I've done some incorrect Maths.

I think if Clara is staying for Series 9 then we'll see Courtney again. We might see her trying to continue on with life at work, but it might be too much for her and Courtney comforts her or tells some of the other pupils to stop asking questions or talking about their former Maths teacher in front of her.
