    So he was just a dirty old man looking to lure young girls into his box!

    BBC has a preview clip from the episode. Nothing earthshattering, but a fun scene all the same.

    Reminds me of a joke someone made back in BSG's day. That they should do a promo that consists of Edward James Olmos glaring at the camera for thirty second and then state the day and time the show is on. This is pretty damn close.

    Question: Any news about a prequel to the special? Seems kinda weird thats it won't have one...

    If there were one, we'd likely have it by now. Maybe they blew their budget getting Paul McGann back for Night of the Doctor?

    If that is the case (which is unlikely, really), it was worth it. But still... considering the last Christmas Special had three prequels, its quite funny. Especially after both TDOTD's success, and its prequels' successes too.

    Based on the phrase "The Doctor is regenerating" i'm hoping we get more after-regeneration screen-time with Capaldi than with the previous 3 regenerations...
    Not just "oh, new teeth, hair ears!" but him finishing the story of the episode proper, defeating the alliance that is trying to kill him...

    I'd rather he didn't. I much rather the story focuses on being 11's final stand and allow for his fans to witness him go out in a bang (or a whimper, depending the story). The new Doctor will have his share of adventures, no need to rush.

    Last year there wasn't anything between the prequels and Christmas. This year there was quite a lot, so the prequels were for that...

    Then you're going to be disappointed.

    Until the plot synopsis leaked, I thought the regeneration would come at either the Act 1 or Act 2 point so that the story would end on an uplifting note.

    We know that Capaldi has at least a scene in "The Time of the Doctor" as Jenna Coleman has said that he has dialogue in the episode. Though it could be something as simple as, "Change, my dear, and not a moment too soon!" :)

    I want something longer than 10 seconds though. Two minutes (or one) with him post-regeneration would be enough. Otherwise it's a looooooooooooong wait before we see Capaldi properly.

    I'd like to see he and Clara interact a bit too.

    I don't disagree. It'll be about eight months until we see Capaldi in action.

    Yes, I know there are people who believe there's going to be an Easter special, but I really don't see the logic for that from the BBC's point of view.

    If it is about 15 seconds of him hopping around and shouting about how things are different before the credits, then I hope at least they'll give us a minisode with a few minutes of him and Clara getting used to each other (like Children in Need 2005 with Rose and Ten). The thought of 8 months before we see him again is....ugh.

    Moffat has called this a "traditional regeneration" so that likely means Capaldi will just be a cameo in the episode's closing scene. About the only difference from other Doctors I'm expecting is that we'll get a "Introducing Peter Capaldi as the Doctor" card flash up, like they did with John Hurt.

    I wonder if season/series 8 will have a new into along with a new console room.

    Since I've hated the "1980's Music Video Set" console room since its debut last Christmas, I certainly hope so, but I doubt it. I think we can safely bet that Capaldi will get a new intro, though.
