doctor who spoilers


I saw the first two photos earlier at work on Monday, and I didn’t get around to properly talk about them. When I showed them to a co-worker, she said the robot reminded her of Marvin the Robot from Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. As I was looking at the short and cute-looking robot, I kept thinking this is going to be an episode kids would really enjoy. I then read this is filming for Episode 2, and it’s written by Frank Cottrell-Boyce, the same writer who did In the Forest of the Night from Series 8.

These photos belong to Sergi Albir of Flickr. When cropped, I wanted to make sure that the originals were also included in the post.


There’s this emperor, and he asks this shepherd’s boy, “How many seconds in eternity?” 

And the shepherd’s boy says, “There’s this mountain of pure diamond. It takes an hour to climb it, and an hour to go around it! Every hundred years, a little bird comes and sharpens its beak on the diamond mountain. And when the entire mountain is chiselled away, the first second of eternity will have passed!”

Still not over now dumb the Time Lords are
  • Time Lords:hey, the Doctor went out of his way to get all of his incarnations together to save our asses.
  • Time Lords:even though we've proven time and time again that we're actively bad for the universe
  • Time Lords:so to repay him, we'll trap him in his own personal hell, looping for billions of years to drive him mad.
  • Time Lords:no way this can backfire
  • Doctor:*arrives on Gallifrey, pissed as shit*
  • Time Lords:whaaaaat no how could this have happened why does he hate us so much we didn't see this coming

I think that eventually, when time does catch up to Clara, she goes back to Gallifrey and leaves the TARDIS for the First Doctor to find, right before she dies… like in Name Of The Doctor. It all comes full circle.

The Doctor’s TARDIS is Clara’s TARDIS from the future brought to the past. It has a faulty Chameleon Circuit and is old and wonky because it was already in use for billions of years.

Doctor: Clara, there’s a sound you’ve been living with every day of your life, but you’ve learned not to hear.

Clara:  What sound? What’s wrong? Just tell me. Doctor, what sound?

Doctor:Your heartbeat. Your physical processes have been time looped… Frozen between one heartbeat and the next. Even your breathing is just a habit. You don’t need it.

The first time Clara met the Doctor, she had to hold her breath in order to not being discovered. She listened her heart beating.
That loud pulse is gone now, the same pulse which a very long time ago could be fatal for her.
It’s curious the fact that the very first time the Doctor met Clara she was breathing, with a fast pulse. Then he left her as a human almost dead, with no heartbeat and breath.
