    I guess if nobody else adds one (unlikely! :giggle:) I will keep an eye and add one about 15 mins before it starts.
    We can put you in charge of the poll, and hope you don't rig it to your liking - you seem trustworthy :mmm:

    Aww, thanks. :blush: I am, I am! :teehee:

    Actually it might be fun to have two new polls - one to rate tomorrow's episode and then a longer 'tracking poll' on how Peter C is doing as Doctor Twelve. << (I am officially informed by experts on here that he is indeed number XII and not perhaps XIII or even XIV as suggested in various media discussions. :nah:)

    Didn't he get described as the 'War Doctor' at some point? TBH, I think his Doctorhood was fairly established during the show. Is this about not breaking the 'only 12 regenerations' rule, or is there something else going on? I worry that John Hurt was just too big a name to bestow 'Doctor' on, after all, he would have to spend the rest of his life going to conventions. :rolleyes:
    No, that was just us Whovians and later, the promotional stuff all describing him as that. He doesn't actually describe himself as the War Doctor on-screen. He doesn't go by any name at all.

    Woo do it :woo:

    I agree, he is twelve. War doctor and a doctor years ago in a film (apparenty another one years before the 1996 one), do not count

    Personally I feel sceptical about the canonicity of the Paul McGann Doctor - really that was such a one off - other than I suppose Sylvester McCoy's appearance in it lends it an aura of credibility. I mean, Peter Cushing's movie for example is never regarded as an authentic Doctor and isn't the McGann thing a bit similar to that?

    I think the fact McGann's doctor has been talked about and included in things (such as when the faces are recalled e.g in the Eleventh Hour) so he's seen as one of them. I agree it was a short lived appearance so I personally wouldn't count him, but I always see Tennant as 10 etc.

    I'm guessing you mean Peter Cushing's Doctor right? If so, his one isn't officially recognised. Moffat did apparantly want some reference to him in the 50th though!

    From what i've read he wanted to have the two movie posters inside the black archive for zygon kate and clara to walk past. To me it seemed the way moffat talked about it, that he wanted cushing's to actually be a film version where the first doctor's adventures had been noticed but sort of distorted. I suppose kind of a true story chinese whispers film.

    Couldn't get the rights to the official posters because of the price or something like that. Oh well at least now in just under 24 hours we get our lovely new shiny capaldi doctor
