Name of the Doctor – Spoiler pix? Maybe…

name of doctor caption

Okay so you`ve probably all seen the two “spoiler” pix put out by the Beeb today, but if you haven’t they’re not really that spoiler-y, I think. Well, one of `em probably is and one of `em isn`t really, it`s just confirmation of my theory on what happens to Clara in the Tardis…

Okay, here’s the first one… ready?

dr who gallifrey name of the doctor

Given that this is on the Beeb`s official Facebook Page, I doubt that the revelation that we get a Gallifrey Flashback really counts as a spoiler. Unless you`re one of those strange people who don’t even look at Next Time trailers, in which case you`re not likely to be here anyway…

So, there are two possibilities. One, we’ll see the Doctor as a baby getting baptised, or whatever the Timelord equivalent is for naming their kids. Maybe Claire Bloom will be back as his mum…

Or it’ll be a flashback to the Doctor and Susan escaping for the very first time. I doubt this will be what it`s for, they would need a Hartnell lookalike for a start and where would they get one of those from…

I reckon this scene will be the Doctor getting named by his parents.

Or something else entirely!

Next, this one is a real corker and confirms what I thought was going on in my previous speculations on the story. Remember how Clara steps into the energy column to rescue the Doctor and sees Bessie drive past…

Just after this last one, guess what happens next. somebody walks past in the corridor behind Clara… and look Who it is!

dr who name doctor clara sixie

It`s Sixie!

Now, that confirms what I thought about her having brief encounters with previous Doctors, moments in his lives. We had a similar thing in Journey a few eps back if you remember. So we’ve got a Colin Baker lookalike, in his costume, out of focus and in the background in a dimly lit corridor… I reckon he walks past the junction, with a genuine Colin line from the Classic Series as a voice over, and vanishes just as Clara turns round.

Nice idea, to have “ghosts” of previous Doctors “haunting” the Tardis due to whatever timey-wimey thing is going on. A nice idea and a neat way of getting the previous docs involved in anniversary year.

I reckon this is exactly what they’ll do for the other Old Doctors, with lookalikes for some and voice overs for others.

Excited for Saturday yet? I am, and it`s only Tuesday!

    They BBC HAS a Hartnell lookalike. David Bradley is playing Hartnell in the dram ‘An Adventure in Space and Time’, currently filming. Not only is he in costume at the BBC but they even have a set built for the original TARDIS control room…

      Yeah, I was thinking that too, but if it was me I`d keep that back for the Fiftieth. What a brilliant crossover that would be!

      I`ve always loved the notion of the Doctor being in that upper room overlooking the junkyard and watching his first self meeting Ian and Barbara for the first time…
