Yeah, definately a one shot guest appearance. From the sound if it, they're going with as more serious tone with Twelve, so a robot dog probably wouldn't fit in.
How about a very serious robot dog?

Is it my imagination or is their one toll from the Cloister Bell, lost in the background of the sound mix, when the image flips from the 4th Doctor's back to his front.

I loved how at the end Matt Smith grabs his magic wand and shouts "Expecto Patronum!"

Or he nearly does.

For god's sake, the sonic screwdriver is neither a magic wand nor a weapon. That's what makes it so cool.

The sonic screwdriver has been a magic wand dating back to at least the fourth Doctor's era.

I think the pretense of the Doctor's "non-violent" methods have never worked in the new series; for an apparent "pacifist" he certainly ends up destroying or killing lots of things.

But then, I've never really had an issue with the Doctor using weaponry, it didn't effect my enjoyment of stories like 'Day of the Daleks', for example.

Not even remotely true.

Now that was an interesting debate.

I'm personally glad we don't know more.

We already know John Hurt is in it as a shamed and dis-acknowledged Doctor, probably from the Time War's nastiest period.

We know there's Zygons and Daleks in it.

We know Kate Stewart is in it, as is Rose, 10, 11 and Clara.

I'm just not understanding not only the desire to know even more, but, actual outrage expressed by not being fed even more.
It is a bit strange isn't it. Of course if they hadn't shown a trailer at comic con people might not be as bothered, but yeah I don't get the anger. Frankly I'm really glad we haven't seen a trailer showing us actual stuff (though I'm sure it's coming).

It was a fun little teaser. I honestly don't care to see too much new material. I'm tired of trailers giving stuff away. If that's all I see leading up to the actual episode, I'll be fine with it.

Ditto. I'm actually glad that we don't know much. Just about a month from now we'll know everything about it because we'll have seen it! But, right now, knowing what we do know about it is enough to have me eagerly looking forward to it without giving to much away!

That was even more true of the old series. If anything, there have been more "Everybody lives!" outcomes in the Moffat era than there ever were at any previous time in the show's history.

^^ Moffat episodes do tend to not feature any characters getting killed. In his episodes under RTD, the only deaths to occur were historical facts (The Girl in the Fireplace) and old age (Blink). Okay, so the Library story did feature quite a few characters getting killed, but they kind of live on as a digital essence within the Library computer, and one of them has become a recurring character anyway.

Re: 50th Is "The Day Of The Doctor" (And Is 75 Minutes)

Off the top of my head...

Several people die in The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone

Multiple people die in A Good Man Goes to War (even accepting that Strax comes back and Dorimum is still with us that still leaves Lorna Bucket amongst others)

Multiple workers are massacred at the start of The Snowmen (and one aspect of Clara)

Multiple people are killed in The Bells of St John as well, given how many people probably didn't have bodies to go back to.

Maybe in small doses, sure. An episode here or there. There's material to be mined there, since we haven't seen K-9 in about 4 years. I'd like to see Clara's reaction to a robot dog, and it would be nice if Capaldi's doctor went on a spree digging out a bunch of old stuff in the TARDIS and fixed it, etc.
Yeah, definately a one shot guest appearance. From the sound if it, they're going with as more serious tone with Twelve, so a robot dog probably wouldn't fit in.

Maybe they could even work in a guest spot with the rest of the SJA crew.

They could use the "K9 is doing something in the TARDIS" excuse (ala: SJA) and have him appear once in a while.


V - Sorry, I missed a page when posting this. I'm just thinking about a very occasional appearance.

Oh god, not K9. I never did like him much. First the Ponds, then the Silurian/Sontaran/Jenny trio, now K9 again? A trilogy of unbearable assistants? What a liberty. :P
