    Not enough time, surely?
    If he hasn't started growing it already, then yes, I suppose so. A wig then, maybe?

    John Hurt blatently is just going to attack MS with a razor in the 50th. Problem solved.

    "It's a wig. I wear a wig now. Wigs are cool."

    Or maybe he'll wear a swimming cap

    I reckon they've already filmed all the Matt Smith scenes, and he'll regenerate sooner than we think. It's the kinda trick Moffat would pull (and has done before with Clara).

    That's already been shown, in some extra scenes on a box set or something I think

    Yeah it has, I was just messin'.
    Although I guess it depends on whether DVD extras are Canon.

    We must see pre-Library River again though because the Doctor hasn't given her his old sonic screwdriver yet?!!! It's been bugging me.

    I think they're just leaving the River story now. They showed the last time the Doctor met River (before the library) briefly in a DVD extra, which was really more of a joke as the Doctor met multiple versions of River.

    It's a bit of a cop out really, 3 series of River Song and foreshadowing and they basically just write her out. I don't think we'll see her again.

    I hope we don't. I would be happy for an RTD style 'restart' to cancel her out of absolutely everything to do with DW and so I never have to hear any gob****e say 'spoilers' like her again.

    It doesn't seem to have been mentioned here, so I thought I'd ask if people have heard the recent spoiler about John Hurt? Or not so much spoiler, but confirmation of a theory...

    Spoiler:
    Show
    "Costume designer Howard Burden, who showed the royal couple a selection of costumes from the show, disclosed that the anniversary episode will feature John Hurt, who will play a “dark Doctor” seen briefly at the end of the last series.

    He said: “There was a gap between Paul McGann playing the Doctor and Christopher Eccleston, when we didn’t see a regeneration, and John Hurt will fit into that gap. He is a past Doctor, not a future Doctor.” "
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukne...-of-Wales.html



    Just thought I'd mention it as no one else here seems to have

    I don't know about you guys but I found the dialogue made me cringe on several occasions... I blame that a lot on River Snog but still. The whole episode felt kinda messy, as if it had been done in a hurry.

    HELP ME I'm falling out of love with my favourite TV show (( Gonna rewatch some series 3 stuff right now, should set this all right.

    I think Andrew Scott (moriarty) should be the next Doctor!
    Not gonna happen but it'd be awesome

    Also did anyone else see Prince Charles on the Doctor Who set? It was so funny :lol:
    But Matt's hair is still short, how will this fit in with the upcoming episodes? Will he wear a wig...

    I reckon it must be fairly soon now that we'll find out who the next Doctor will be. They've had enough time to cast the role. I guess they want to keep us on tenterhooks as long as possible though...

    No, but he is a fan of giving out casting details. We knew about JLC yonks before she appeared on screen. Same when Matt Smith was cast - it was announced ages before the regeneration episode...

    EDIT - just checked - Matt Smith was announced in January 2009, but appeared first on screen in December 2009.

    EDIT again - according to Wikipedia (that most reliable of sources ), series 8 is due to start filming in September. They'll have to announce it before then or it'll be leaked.
