Re: Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead

The proposed title of the next one makes me wonder if we are going to see the return of another classic villain.

Re: Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead

I've seen rumours that we are, indeed. It's been a while since their last appearance... if it's true, I do wonder what sort of look upgrade they're going to get!

Re: Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead

I'm wondering if it will centre around a parallel "global warming" story (hence the waters)

Re: Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead

A solid episode Plenty of foreshadowing here...

Spoiler for Foreshadowing spoilers:
UNIT personnel talking about wanting to meet the Doctor but knowing what that day will bring.

I don't think we've seen the last of the two new unit recruits.

Your song is ending (again).

It is coming *back* from the dark. So this is a foe or an object from the Doctor's past... that will feature prominently in the final run. Could be many things... "Satan", or something from the rift... heck it could be Gallifrey.

"He will knock four times". *GULP* sounds very ominous. A lot of people will be speculating that this means the Master... but again vague enough to be anything. Kind of reminds me of Sheridan's first Kosh induced dream.

The cloister bell in the trailer heralding the next special.


I thought Lee Evans was hilarious... and the Doctor's totally irreverent use of Aethelstan's Cup to get out of a scrape was wonderful.

Onwards to Mars.

Re: Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead

Two possibilities come to mind, Maybe The Axonites are comming back to settles a score with the Doctor or Maybe its the Silurians or Sea Devils, I would say both of them have scores to settel with the Doctor.

Re: Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead

I think "he" will be the Master - again. Which is a lot less scary than the foreshadowing was.

Quite liked this one - nice surprise after the utterly rubbish Christmas special. The ZOMG-fuckup of the Dubai port authorities (damaging the bus when unloading it) fit the script perfectly.

Re: Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead

Perhaps it is worse than any of you have yet imagined.

A "foe" so devastating and sickening that the audience will scream at the very sight.




Of course I am referring to Peri.

I suspect that the episode "The Stolen Earth" needed Peri, our stewardess for the trip.

Re: Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead

Character traits aside, I thought Peri was pretty fit in the day... the nightmare scenario for a returning companion in my book is....

Mel.

Bonnie Langford just gets up my nose.
