Or the name of the planet changed. Arrakis-Rakis. Potatoh-Potaytoe.

Three was seven personalities and at least two centuries ago. It's no surprise Eleven might pronounce a word differently.
Much more than two centuries. More like at least four to seven centuries ago. The Third Doctor never gave a straight up age, while The Second Doctor said he was 450 in The Tomb of the Cybermen and The Fourth Doctor said 749 in The Brain of Morbius. Then you throw in the variety of inconsistencies throughout the show, especially since it returned in 2005 because The Doctor has been to known to lie about his age on a number of accounts.

The above geek rant aside, you make a valid point. Perhaps it's been so long since The Doctor has even thought of Metebellis III that he forgot how it was pronounced.
Yeah, I'm not terribly familiar with the classic series, so I wasn't sure how old the Doctor was at that time. I just know that at least two centuries had passed between his current regeneration and his last. Thanks for the info, though!

Well the spiders from Metebellis III are chitinous, so the whole thing is probably entirely intentional.

He didn't pronounce chitinous correctly is my point.

Exactly. After all the Seventh Doctor developed a Scottish accent, why can't the Eleventh pronounce some place names slightly differently?
It's a different pronunciation, not just his accent. And it's hardly slightly is it? There's a limited number of ways a word can be read, and this way was as different as possible.

Has it not occurred to anyone that, maybe, it was Three who was pronouncing it wrong to begin with? (Another thing he got totally wrong about that planet.)
Oh yes, that'll be it. I bet if you pick up the script it noted for Smith to pronounce it differently because the writer decided the Third Doctor had been saying it wrong.

Why was this episode called Hide?

The point still stands. If Doctor 7 can have a completely different accent than before, why can't 11 pronouce things differently?

I wondered the same thing after watching. No one was hiding, in fact, everyone was doing the exact opposite of hiding.

I wasn't. I was behind the sofa with my seven-year-old.

Well the creepy alien in the house was hiding...sort of...

Plus the ghost hunters were hiding their feelings from one another...

Yeah it doesn't make a lot of sense....

The episode was all about the Monster wanting to get some tail, so "hide" refers to the Monster's hide, not hiding from the monster

Re: 7x09 Hide - rating and discussion thread

Everyone came into this episode (including Eleven and Clara) expecting a good old-fashioned ghost story - the real story (or rather stories) was 'hiding' behind those assumptions. Those included:

- The real reason behind the 'ghost' sightings
- The professor & the psychic's unrequited romance
- The psychic discovering her own inner strength
- Clara getting an eye-opener on what it truly means to be a time-traveler
- Clara's ongoing feud with Sexy
- The Doctor becomes the scared, danger-prone Companion for once - Clara has to come to his rescue
- The reason the Doctor/Clara came there in the first place

So. Seven little separate intertwining B-stories 'hiding' behind an A-story premise. There's your explanation.

I just read that the writer wanted to have Quatermass in the episode but couldn't get the rights. The Doctor and Quatermass, that'd have been wild.

And to add to the "Hide" business, I also heard it had a working title of "Hider in the House" at some point. After "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship", that couldn't have been too on-the-nose.

That was my point as well, but a joke you have to explain is probably a terrible joke. Oh well.

All Doctor Who episodes should follow this title format:
- Nestenes in a Shop Window
- Dalek in a Basement
- Internet Brain-Stealers in a Tower
- Evil God on a Planet
- Ice Warrior on a Submarine
- Daleks in Manhattan
