Interestingly, The BBC twitter synopsis has one notable difference in wording:

In #TheTimeOfTheDoctor, Clara & The Doctor must go to a quiet backwater planet to learn what some strange signals mean for his last existence.

There's a plot outline on Gallifrey Base.
That is like saying "you can google it" - What does it say?
Oh, very well. I make no claims to its veracity.

Haha, that sounds terrible so it probably is the storyline.

So what can we draw from that picture anyway?

A rather happy looking decapitated Cyberman, 3 Silents in the background, a body under the snow, Clara holding an infostamp (at least I hope it's an infostamp ) and a clock tower on the Twelvth Hour.
There's also a certain someone's face in the fire:



I wonder Who it could be?

(Admittedly I didn't spot the face myself; I found out about it via Blogtor Who.)

Put that together with the official synopsis and it does sound pretty plausible...

The poster image does seem include the Doctor's "friend" mentioned in that synopsis, so I'm inclined to believe it.

Actually I think it sounds fantastic but don't pay attention to me, I'm a Doctor Who fan.

Unless they saw the poster image and incorporated it into the synopsis?

I guess that's certainly possible. But I kind of like the idea of an aged Doctor keeping a Cyberhead to be his friend so want it to be true.

No, really? I never would have guessed, what with you posting in the Doctor Who forum and all.

It does sound a bit cruel, though, doesn't it? Not letting the Cyberman die but instead keeping his head around for centuries - not very Doctor-like at first glance but we'll see how it will play out (or not if it isn't true).

To be honest, due to the Doctor holding the Cyberhead I first assumed that promo pic was a hoax.

At least the Doctor is keeping the Cyberhead company. Poor Dorium is stuck in a box in a crypt surrounded by carnivorous skulls. Sure he's got a media chip, but what happens when the Wi-Fi is down?

If this synopsis is true it seems the production team spent so much effort keeping events in the 50th secret that they forgot about doing the same for Christmas!

Why do you feel that? What is it about this synopsis that you don't like?

It's not about liking/disliking, I'm just surprised that this has sneaked out when they kept so much about the 50th secret.
