Re: Capaldi's previous roles in DW and TW won't be ignored

I agree with the general idea that they really shouldn't delve TOO much into this issue of how he looks like two other characters. However, I wonder if what they'll do with that will also be able to be used as an interpretation for the First, Second and Sixth Doctors looking other, existing people (one of them a Time Lord, no less).

Probably not, but we could speculate I guess...

As much as I still don't like this idea, I just had a thought: Perhaps Moffat is going to try to bring back Captain Jack Harkness to tie in with the Frobisher aspect. I would be interested in seeing both Jack's reaction to The Doctor's newest appearance and finally seeing The Doctor's reaction to the events of Children of Earth.

Was Frobisher a politician or just a civil servant?

Civil servant. His suicide/child killing would normally be biggish news (in the serios papers) but in the circumstances it probably got a footnote on page 19.

Re: Capaldi's previous roles in DW and TW won't be ignored

Has there been anything to suggest that either Children of Earth or Miracle Day exist in the current Doctor Who timeline?

Sounds like the Klingon forehead ridges explanation...something that no one asked for or wanted.

Well, Children of Earth did happen in the Doctor Who timeline otherwise why the hell is Jack on planet Zog in The End of Time?

I don't want to nitpick, but The End of Time doesn't really take place in the current Doctor Who timeline.

Oh no? Scenes from The End of Time were referenced and even shown as clips in the SJA episode Matt Smith guest starred in, making it clear that is in the "current" Doctor Who timeline, and by extension The End of Time is still considered part of the "current" timeline.

Re: Capaldi's previous roles in DW and TW won't be ignored

I had no idea he'd been in any other episodes. I haven't seen torchwood, and I thought The Fires of Pompeii sucked, so I wasn't paying too much attention to any of the family members. It doesn't matter if this is addressed to me, but on the other hand I think it could be interesting.

I'm interested in seeing this woven in to some sort of clever mystery for Series 8. Maybe the Doctor fractured himself or used a chameleon watch to become a human and got lost across time.

And someone who really loved Fires of Pompeii, I am pretty sure this is not a necessaty. Didn't Destiny of the Daleks, of all serials, set the precedent that a Time Lord can assume the face of whoever? Second Romana looked like Princess Astra, example given.

Oh, hell no. There are no ego-preening, ban-happy mods here.
