So Trials and Tribblelations isn't a great celebration of 30 years of Trek? And in fact isn't a far more loving and enjoyable celebration of Trek than Flashback, despite the fact Flashback actually had Sulu and Rand in it whilst all Trials had was old existing footage?

Execution is everything and I'd rather have something that was great but didn't have classic Docs in than something that shoehorned them all in but was rubbish.
Well, sure, execution is everything. But why not hope for a well executed story that actually has a classic Doctor? They're not mutually exclusive you know.

I'd rather have a well executed story that has a classic Doctor.

On second thought. I'm thinking she's a scientist for UNIT with the brig's daughter behind Matt

Here's a question - do we actually know if series 7b wraps up the current mystery or is it going to be another cliffhanger to be solved in the special?

I believe we've been told Series 7b leads into the Anniversary Special, which could be interpretted in many different ways, but, I personally think it means the Finale will have some kind of cliff hanger to be resolved in the Anniversary special

Doesn't it take HOURS to get into the Sontaran makeup? Or does Dan Starkey just look that way normally?

Dare we speculate that they wouldn't go through all the trouble of getting Dan into the getup for a simple web update - is he coming back for the 50th story as well?

And I was relieved a bit with Gemma coming back - if for no other reason than that it meant the shiny black SUVs were NOT Torchwood. :P

And since I doubt Dan Starkey hangs around the BBC in costume on the off-chance of work I think we can safely add three more names to the cast list.

It really is just another Moffat episode, with Tennant and Piper thrown in as a sop to the past.

Don't forget the scarf placed on a UNIT scientist.


If they can't get another doctor actor a SCARF works just well in their place




In all seriousness, don't fret yet until we know all the details.

Per Moffat, the Clara mystery wraps up by the 7B finale: "'You will uncover the mystery of Clara in the next eight episodes,' he says. 'All will be made clear. You'll get your answer.'" That was before "The Bells of St. John" aired, so he means the eight episodes of 7B.

He was in costume last week for the kids' day with Strax at the exhibition, so his entry could have been prefilmed then. We don't know they've shot any of the studio footage for the special yet.

Probably not, although it was pretty clearly greenscreen in the back so second unit could be shooting something and they quickly added a Straxisode while they were at it. They obviously knew they would be at T-square on that day, so they put together something to release early on.

Would you be as bothered if it were just another RTD episode?

No, because he respects all of the series history and would have lived up to the job.
