I'm really looking forward to today's episode which explains why the thread is early.

As you are already aware, discussion of future spoilers should take place in the Doctor spoilers and speculations thread.

SFX episode teasers for today's episode can be found here, I'll be on the lookout for the ones in bold.

Spoiler:
Show
1 In some ways it’s the most unusual Doctor Who ever episode ever – never has the show been less plot-lead and more character-led

2 It’s very, very emotional at times

3 Anyone expecting an out-and-out comedy from Richard Curtis will be surprised. This is about Van Gogh – it doesn’t shy away from depression and suicide. If anything, the episode is quite melancholy

4 The opening scene is a blinder

5 An ongoing gag about the TARDIS’s abilities won’t make any sense to people who don’t know the show inside-out

6 Objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are

7 There’s a glorious visual reference to the painting “Starry Night”

8 The Doctor makes a slip of the tongue


9 There’s some mutual sartorial appreciation going on

10 There’s a major story element that some will decry as a massive plot hole and others will embrace on a metaphorical level

11 The TARDIS is redecorated

12 Two former Doctors make an unexpected appearance (for one of them it’s their third appearance this year)


Poll to follow

Enjoy!

I'm so annoyed that I'll be missing some in order to go to a party! I guess I'll watch the rest when I get in.

I'm guessing the plot hole will be;

Spoiler:
Show
"Is that my engagement ring?" and everybody will be like "But Rory got unwritten! She shouldn't remember being engaged!" and it will be a heartfelt moment.

Or the bit in a couple of the trailers where Van Gogh says she's sad, and although she can't remember why (because Rory got unwritten) she still feels it. = heartfelt moment.

I doubt it'll be that tbh. It's probably something that appears to be a continuity error perhaps like the whole is he the future doctor in Flesh and Stone.

I was thinking with the whole engagement ring thing

Spoiler:
Show
Maybe River Song finds it whenever they meet again and thinks it's the doctor's for her and that's how they end up married?

And also for some reason I keep thinking that River Song is going to turn out to be Amy. Which makes no sense and is highly improbable, but I still keep thinking it :p:

Eh, I don't seem excited about this one. I don't like episodes set in the past tbh. But I'll try and look forward to it.

Oooh I really want to be on the look out for 12!
Spoiler:
Show

I wonder which episodes that one of them was in before if this is their third?

Possibly something to do with the finale? Or were they just extras and meant to be so? :sherlock:

The clues sound tempting, but I don't have the patience to figure them out anymore, and I have no one to discuss them with as everyone I know thinks Dr Who has become crap just lately..

I reckon #12 is referring to, with the "third appearance" at least, either River, or Nasreem. Though I guess we'll see.

How could it refer to Nasreem thought? Isn't she the one who stayed underground with the Silurians?

So what made the episode awesome for you? As I was curious to see if anyone had voted yet I checked out the results and have seen you voted excellent. So is it really that good?

Yes, but you've got to think in 4D.
