my brother, whos been avoiding ALL spoilers [and even speculation], just got really badly spoiled on how series 6 turns out. I asked him whether it was real, but he just said that some person had watched all the episodes and posted some very conclusive evidence, which had to be true because when you saw it, it was like 'ooh...my god. it all makes sense now'. ok, that was really badly worded, sorry.

I don't know what the spoilers are by the way, i didn't want to know and my brothers kind enough not to spoil BUT STAY AWAY FROM THE FOOTBALL 365 FORUM. that is all.

I've tried to make this as unspoilery as possible, because whilst my brother didn't spoil me, he gave me some very vague hints which don't actually reveal anything.

Wow that sucks...I hope he's not too bothered about it. It's one thing to get badly spoilered when you don't really resist spoilers, but when you avoid all speculation...I feel sorry for him

Btw, did he infer if it was bad stuff? *is really worried for the fate of DW*

Yeah bad as in things we don't want to happen (characters die, stupid plot twists, the Doctor falls in love with a Dalek...that sort of stuff )

Steven Moffat said something about Private Eye spoilers on twitter, and how they're not true.

And the writer of Episode 10 (the one we know pretty much nothing about) has given an interview:
Spoiler:
Show
“I’ve written episode 10 which I think is my most accomplished piece of plotting ever,” says MacRae. “There’s a break in the series, so it will be coming out later. What’s interesting is that the requirements of the script meant that for various reasons nothing has gone out about it at all. We didn’t do much location filming, and the way the guest characters work is unusual, so no one knows anything about my episode. There’s speculation about it which is wrong – some bright spark has put the title of the episode on IMDB as The Green Anchor – it has never been called that! I’m amazed we’ve kept it this secret because there’s a really big surprise in it. All I will say is that it’s an unusual episode and it’s really great.”

Edit: Although the Steven Moffat tweet might be non-spoiler related at all, just at how an article isn't true. I think it's one about financial decisions and the series split...

“I’ve written episode 10 which I think is my most accomplished piece of plotting ever,” ? That's very modest of him...

Would you rather he say "Yeah, this isn't as good as my other stuff."?

Isn't that the same kinda thing Matthew Graham said about The Almost People/The Rebel Flesh? Doesn't necessarily mean it's actually any good, just means he thinks it's better than his other stuff.

He might not even think that it's better. It's just something that you say.

I doubt your brother has actually come across real or new spoilers.
Well, I'm glad you said this, because it turns out my brother is an actual idiot [first class degrees don't really prove much, do they?!]
I was watching dr who, and he kept grinning because he knew this 'big secret', so I got annoyed and just told him to tell me.

AND IT ANSWERS NOTHING. It's just pure speculation, it's not spoilery because it doesn't prove anything! it's just worth thinking about! IT'S THE STUPIDEST THING EVER!

and for those who are wondering, the spoiler [but really only just speculation, and even then, it's not actually said what it could mean].
Spoiler:
Show
in 'The Eleventh Hour', we meet a character call Jeff. For those who can't remember, he's 'the good looking guy', with the laptop that the doctor borrows to talk to the important people. well, his mother [I think it's his mother anyway], she's the first person we see in the house, short grey hair, wore a purple cardigan. She was wearing a silver brooche in the shape of a flower with a stem and little leaves on the bottom. Well, this brooche was worn later on in either series 5/6 [my brother couldn't tell when she wore it] by none other than River Song.

it doesn't really prove much does it? We don't really know enough about the old lady to see what relation she has to River Song. :/

pretty lame tbh. At least I don't think it reveals anything.


anyway, more on my red theory. I was watching The Eleventh Hour, and well...
The first look at Amy's house shows a red garden windmill thing.
The set of swings in her front garden is red.
Amy's nightgown was white with a red pattern
when she goes out to see wtf just landed in her garden, she was wearing a bright red cardigan, with red wellies.
when she was packing her suitcase, 1. her suitcase was white with a red rim, and 2. practically all her clothes are red.
her torchlight is red too
so is the red persian carpeting in her house.

BUT THEN, I also noted a lot of TARDIS blue being used, for example the whole of Amy's house is TARDIS blue [her walls, the front door, which has 4 red glass panes in it by the way, Amy's coat was deep blue too.

so maybe it is just a production thing :facepalm: but maybe it's not. Anyway, i'll keep you updates about the red thing now that I have no exams left, and far too much free time

Oh, and the Football 365 forum has very few football related topics on there. It's more of a forum for guys who really need lives.

That's hardly a spoiler tbh. It's not even speculation and it could be either of two things.

1. Old lady knows Amy and is close to Amy so she leaves silver brooch and Amy gives the brooch to her daughter, River.

2. Production team re-used the same brooch for River and the old lady.

Then there's the standard the old lady is really an older version of River (obviously not)/the Rani/Sally Sparrow/Romana etc.

it's not a spoiler is it? my brothers a fooool. Plus, River died in forest of the dead, so i doubt it would be an older her, or a regenerated her. My brother got all excited because the lady said to the doctor 'have I seen you before?', but I just thought that was talking about her seeing the cartoons Amy had drawn about him.

SO today I went to see a play in London, which my gf bought the tickets for yesterday, so I went knowing absolutely nothing in regards to what it was about or who was in it. I also decided to wear my Doctor Pooh t-shirt for the first time today, only to get to the theatre and find out the play starred Paul McGann! I was left worried that people would think that I'm some sort of Doctor Stalker!!!

hahaha, next on the agenda is Much Ado I take it?

Was McGann any good in it? I still think he was an alright Doctor.

I remember seeing King Lear a few years ago, which starred Ian McKellen as the titular character. It also starred Sylvester McCoy opposite him as The Fool He played the spoons <3
