Judgement Day: What's Up With All The Eye References This Series? (Don't Blink)

I’ve touched upon this idea in a few other theories, but I think after Time Heist and The Caretaker it’s time for this theory to take wings…so to speak.

Ever since Moffat’s era began there have been a lot of eyes about the place and they connected back to the cracks in time. The Time Of The Doctor revealing the cracks having been the Time Lords observing the entire time, trying to make contact, now beginning of Series 8 there have been eyes everywhere. Almost like the entire universe has turned its gaze to The Doctor’s search for Gallifrey.

Back, very long ago now, I made this observation about the Weeping Angels, eyes and justice in Series 7:

Lady Justice, or the Goddess Themis, is the personification of justice, and she is often portrayed blindfolded:




Since the 15th century, Lady Justice has often been depicted wearing a blindfold. The blindfold represents objectivity, in that justice is or should be meted out objectively, without fear or favour, regardless of identity, money, power, or weakness; blind justice and impartiality.

I think it might be a nod to the fact The Doctor will come to be judged in many ways, perhaps leading up to his regeneration.

For example, remember the resounding shot of the Weeping Angel after she sends Amy back in time?:


My immediate thought was of Lady Justice. Specifically because the Weeping Angels appear to be blind! I think there is something coming for The Doctor, and maybe the Weeping Angels are harbingers of this message, like in a capacity of their namesakes.


The eyes symbolise not only judgment, but observing and watching The Doctor’s every move. Because not all eyes turned upon The Doctor are blind. Not everyone in the universe weighs the judgement upon The Doctor’s actions equally.

I think The Doctor is going to be called for judgement again. Whether it is by the Time Lords, or any of the secondary forces who would feel need to pass a harsh punishment; someone is trying to send a dark message to The Doctor that he’s being called for judgement, I’m certain of it.

So, here cometh judgement day, and it belongs to the Twelfth Doctor, it always has.

And it will be done, in my opinion, with very little, or without, mercy, attempting to take away just about everything The Doctor holds dear right now. There is a price for Gallifrey’s potential return and someone already bears the burden for it. The person who knows the Doctor best and will be forced to judge his actions fairly, without the total faith and trust they’ve always had in him.

Clara Oswald.

Why? Because she is the only one who can pass fair judgement on him, because she’s always been there. Clara was deliberately placed to be “Born To Save The Doctor” because she needed to be the the one to pass final judgement on his actions.

From the moment we first encounter Clara in Asylum Of The Daleks, peering out of the eye-stalk of The Dalek, she’s been watching The Doctor.


In the past few episodes Clara has had:

Deep Breath: Her eyes studied.


Into The Dalek: Her shirt covered with eyes.


Robot Of Sherwood: A third eye via her diadem.


Listen: The Doctor comments that she’s all eyes.


Time Heist: "Could you trust someone if they looked back at you out of your own eyes?"


(This is another tricky one, but this scene:
THE DOCTOR:Clara! It’s locked on to you. It may be still asleep, don’t wake it.
CLARA: Okay. How do I not do that?
THE DOCTOR: Keep your mind blank. Block everything. Once it locks.

Did this give anyone Blink flashbacks?)

The Caretaker:


So, what is up with Ms Oswald and her eyes? Well, something else to take notes on is that wings are also a frequent accessory:


Now, before we get to any rash comments of ‘What is the crazy theorist getting at now?’ Let’s remind ourselves of Clara’s name:

“Oswin” Oswald means: “God’s friend God rule.

God’s friend? Angels. That’s all. It’s been there the whole time. Clara’s connected to the Weeping Angels. (It could also explain what happened to all her echoes who don’t exist anymore…but did…confusing much?)

I’d also like to take this opportunity to bring in our auspicious friend, Danny Pink. (The “Bit Of” A Lady Killer)

Danny, which is a derivative of Daniel, means: God is my judge God has judged, or God is judge.

Danny’s real name is Rupert Pink.

In American the meaning of the name Rupert is: Bright fame. German Meaning: The name Rupert is a German baby name. In German the meaning of the name Rupert is: Famed; bright; shining

But hang on, Clara also means: bright, shining, famous…oh my…



So, what is really going on with the happy couple? In my opinion, a bit of a Michael vs Lucifer reference. I believe Danny is cause for “God Is My Judge” because of two possibilities (possibly connected to each other.):

  1. He’s the Master or The Valeyard.
  2. He’s working for the Black Guardian or another opposing force.

So, what would someone working for the opposing force try to do? Convert the champion of the other side to his way of thinking, bring them from one side of the board to the other, having his way without a fair trial for The Doctor.


Ding ding, the giant chess board.

And Clara wearing black and white in The Caretaker, because doesn’t know which side to take. Danny and Clara are two sides of the same coin, that’s why they were attracted to one another. (I have to stress Danny might be like Vislor Turlough, he might not know The Black Guardian is using him…or about to.)

Adding some weight to this theory, is the following spoiler below, from the apply named Death In Heaven finale episode:





Danny has been spotted in Cyberman armour and:


Clara’s Victorian Echo’s grave and Weeping Angels have also been spotted on the set.

So, we’ve seen Missy at the head of a Cybermen Army, does this mean we’re going to see an opposing force of Weeping Angels? What a game of chess!




There’s also something else, something that could explain the eyes and the stone connection to Twelve:


Let’s go back to Pompeii.
