    Well....he's already better than Smith! :P
    Could be about Susan. I personally think it's about Clara though and that she's in trouble or is dead. Either way Clara ends up dead by the end of it. If it is Susan though, wouldn't that just be great!

    What I wonder about the filming clip is what's up with all the people in ordinary clothes with guns?

    Makes me wonder, given the context, if this is

    Capaldi never takes off his wedding ring.

    For show purposes maybe the doctor can say it's because of River

    It could be that... the first name is just Osgood's first name and he's talking to her, and that the she is Clara.

    Massive spoilers for the finale

    There were numerous Cybermen on set, about six or seven and they were just marching around the set, stopping to stare at grave stones before moving on. The scene in question involved Clara and a Cyberman, and the interesting thing is that the Cyberman she was talking to was missing the face piece of the helmet. I first thought it was part of rehearsal, but it definitely wasn’t as Jenna was popping back and fourth between shots for her hair to be fixed and the extra Cybermen had only just had their helmets fixed on before filming. I didn’t get a look at the actor’s face, but it was definitely a man. I couldn’t overhear much from the scene, but I heard Clara say, “Don’t you know who I am?” and at one point she reached out touched the Cyberman’s face.


    So does Danny Pink become a Cybermen?

    Suspect that it's purely a coincidence, but one the names that appears on various things in that shot is the name of a minor character from the 2013 run. Suspect just a coincidence though...

    May not be a coincidence at all: apparently there are some other familiar names elsewhere there...

    This new trailer suggests the return of Davros and the Daleks! Can this be so? If so this is simply awesome! My goodness, this series might be the best by Moffat so far, it might even be better than some of RTD's series! I'm liking where this series is building up. A more serious and likely darker doctor, cybermen, and now the strong possibility of Davros and the Daleks!!!!!! Make it so!

    It's widely reported that Capaldi asked that one of those appeared in his first season. It's long rumoured that the other might turn up in an episode like DS9's Duet/Waltz.

    I'm not sure if I buy that it's Davros in that trailer. Mainly because, I'm about 99% certain that entire speech is delivered by Nicholas Briggs. Doesn't necessarily mean anything, I know. Could just be something done for the trailer, or perhaps they're recasting Briggs as Davros? I'm totally stoked if Davros does return, anyway.

    That would be totally awesome!

    I think its certainly either Davros or another Dalek, saw comments on youtube some people are thinking Dalek Time Controller.

    I reckon it would be good if its done well.

    Just checked the series 7 DVD - the Dalek PM's voice is higher pitched, but it might be intended to be him, as the actual line fits more in keeping with his chat about Dalek concepts of Beauty in Asylum...

    My god the time controller would be awesome. Moffat would make millions of geeks happy and man fans no familiar with the time controller big fans of him/it.

    The Dalek Prime Minister is such a boring choice. Although, maybe they could explain just how a Dalek Parliament works, as I don't picture Daleks giving democracy a chance and engaging dissenting opinions in thoughtful discussion.

    ^But on the other hand, since Daleks insist on absolute uniformity and hate any variation, wouldn't that make all Daleks pretty much equal? I wouldn't be surprised if they had an entirely democratic system -- one in which every voter always agreed on everything, because they all think exactly the same.

    On the third hand, they're not computers that always come up with the logical option. They're living beings filled with hate and rage. They won't be doing the same logical choice all the time.

    They've always been an authoritarian society, whether it was Davros or the Supreme Dalek in command. The parliament just doesn't seem right for them!
