Doctor Who thing: Christmas will be “The Time of the Doctor”

timeofdoctor

The BBC is teasing us on the Christmas episode:

Orbiting a quiet backwater planet, the massed forces of the universe’s deadliest species gather, drawn to a mysterious message that echoes out to the stars – and amongst them, the Doctor.

Rescuing Clara from a family Christmas dinner, the Time Lord and his best friend must learn what this enigmatic signal means for his own fate and that of the universe.

Gotta say, the image they’re giving is to accompany this synopsis looks and feels like a bad Photoshop job. I mean, festive Clara with her paper crown and her cracker + serious Doctor holding a decapitated Cyberman head? Talk about a tonal mismatch…

    The fate of the [profane] universe again? Give us a [profane] break.

    Is that look supposed to be “serious”? Looks like David Boreanaz registering sulkiness on Angel, before he learned to act rather than be a pretty boy.

    “Never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee, Doctor!” – The Master

    Will The Master be returning for the Christmas episode;The Time Of The Doctor?
    There’s a youtube clip going around of the apparent next ‘regeneration’ of The Master who will be facing off against Capaldi in the forthcoming series.
    According to several tweets by tweeter ‘@jamesstoker1963’ The Master maybe returning for the Christmas episode and beyond.
    He’s tweeted a youtube audition clip that’s already had over 10,000 views, with these details:

    “I got this apparent audition clip from a youtube user account IzzyAlive (which now seems to have been deleted) who claimed: “A friend of mine in an actors co-operative agency got sent this clip with 4 others in an email that they’d been ‘CC’D into when casting another show I can’t mention. The other 3 clips were relevant to the show they were casting but this one was marked:
    ‘The Master DW2014’ (Moff select final review clip).
    I don’t know who the actor is but maybe they’re going with an ‘unknown’ to play The Master after casting a ‘known’ actor in Peter Capaldi to play the 12th Doctor? I guess we’ll find out soon enough”

    You can see the clip at: youtu.be/x4F4GpGTaQM
    Looks pretty cool for an audition clip and this ‘Master’ certainly has a creepy edge.
    See you at Trenzalore…

  • I agree on that poster. It’s just weird.
    Plus, a lot of us are entirely sick of the cybermen! I don’t want to ever see them again. ugh.

    They’re the second oldest recurring villain group after the daleks…

  • Doesn’t mean I have to like them. I’m not terribly fond of the Daleks, either.

    You should hear both of their classic voices. They were a LOT worse.
