Silence Will Fall

This is it. Matt Smith’s regeneration. He somehow finds himself back at Trenzalore, but before the final battle that costs him his life. Who will cause the regeneration? We got The Silence, Daleks, Cybermen, and Weeping Angels.

Why do I hear Billie Piper?

The Name of The Doctor

series-7-finale-poster-portrait

Everything is still speculation as to what might happen in the episode, but the synopsis paints a pretty good picture:

“Someone is kidnapping the Doctor’s friends, leading him towards the one place in all of time and space that he should never go”

The episode takes place in Victorian times again, so it looks like it will have something to to do with Vastra, Jenny, and Strax. Couple that with River being in the episode as well as the Great Intelligence, looks like the GI is kidnapping the Doctor’s friends, and taking them to Trenzalore, for obviously something nefarious.

The episode airs on May 18th, so hopefully as we get closer to the air date, I will have more information (excluding major spoiers) to put on here (Sadly, even with the BBC America shipping screw up, no major spoilers have come out. A tight lid is being kept on this, all there is is rumors and speculation)

Doctor Who Magazine has officially said that River is returning, but they say it is River returning from The Library…could she have really survived, since we didn’t see a body when we thought she was basically vaporized

The Doctor has a secret that he will take to his grave. And it is discovered…..

Clara is summoned to an impossible conference call, alerting her that the deadly Whisper Men are closing in on Vastra, Jenny and Strax.

Someone is kidnapping the Doctor’s friends, leading him toward the one place in all of time and space that he should never go. It’s a deadly trap that threatens to unravel his past, present and future…

Updated 5/15/13

Apparently the rumor going around is that the doctor’s name is the key to opening his tomb, and once a timelord dies their body resembles a wibbly wobbly timey vortex of strands, signifying their travels and all they have done. Apparently the Great Intelligence wants access to this, for something nefarious, and Clara ends up jumping in to save him. This could explain the multiple Clara’s that we have seen (and havent seen yet). They could be doing this ala Quantam Leap. She goes in, and inhabits the body of one of his companions at a certain point in time, saving him, and dying in the process. After she dies, she comes back to the TARDIS, and does it all over again. So if that is what they are doing with Clara, then that could also be what they do with the GI. He goes in, and possesses all the doctors enemies at different points, and tries to kill him.

More than likely the start of the episode. Perhaps we might see a certain Doctor and granddaughter “stealing” a TARDIS

who finalePossibly after all is said and done

  • That’s some familiar eye-wear…
  • Someone talks about a parallel world.
  • Bit of a Silence of the Lambs vibe going on there. And a Borrowers vibe.
  • There is a cliffhanger very early on.
  • Moffat has a dig at his own “people”.
  • If it ain’t baroque, don’t fix it.
  • Clara talks about her mother…
  • Wow, is Steven Moffat a fan of Courtney Love and Smokey Robinson?
  • Someone should have locked the door.
  • ‘The Christmas Invasion’ and ‘Dinosaurs on a Spaceship’ get referenced.

The Ice Warriors, excellent-ssssssssssss

icewarriors

Last seen in The Monster of Peladon with John Pertwee, fans have been clamoring for them to return for ages, and it is finally happening. They will make their appearance in episode 8, written by Mark Gastiss, which just so happens to take place underwater on a submarine. Nothing else is really known concerning their return.

Whovians Rejoice!!

The Doctor returns Easter Sunday, March 30th. As more things get released, I will try and have them here

 

Some things that I am looking forward to:

  • The Cybermen will be in an episode, and seem to have finally gotten the long awaited makeover (other than removing the “C” logo from their breastplate)
  • The Cybermen episode will also be penned by the amazing Neil Gaiman, and will feature Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick)
  • Vastra, Jenny, and Strax will be in 2 more episodes
  • There is an episode on a Submarine, and an airplane
  • The Ice Warriors (yeah you read that right) look to finally be featured in an episode
  • How they will tell River’s story now that her mom and dad are no longer with the doctor
  • How River will react when she meets Clara
  • Wondering if the whole “who/what is Clara” will tie into either Trenzalore or the 50th (although I think Trenzalore will take place during the 50th, but all I have is speculation on that so far)
  • Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS seems to be an epic story HOPEFULLY showing the viewers more of the TARDIS, instead of just a few select rooms and endless hallways that all look the same

So with the wait finally over, and with the 50th Anniversary just around the corner:

“Run you cleaver boy, and remember” Doctor Who returns March 30th
