Twice Upon A Time…

… hmmm, anybody else have some questions after seeing rather brilliantly fan-pleasing trailer for the upcoming Xmas ep? I do! As well as the usual pointless speculation…

The trailer starts with a shot of the TARDIS from The Tenth Planet before giving us an amazing morph from Hartnell to Bradley. Looking again at the shot, you can see that it’s actually a shot of Hartnell on top of Bradley and not the other way round…

Which means we’re going to get some recreations of moments from The Tenth Planet in the Special… yay! It makes budgetary sense to give the new Mondas Cybs another run out, never mind that they did for Twelvy like they did for One…

… moments such as this, where Hartnell’s regeneration starts a lot earlier than we thought it did in the original… but why is Polly’s dress pink instead of red???

And why is Bradley wearing the wrong gloves? They had him wearing the correct  fingerless ones in An Adventure In Space And Time, so what went wrong there?

…Bill’s back, Potts that is, so hooray! But please, no Clara… and we get Twelve in One’s TARDIS and One in Twelve’s TARDIS… [as well as the regulation explosions and what may or may not be Vortis…]

In terms of pointless speculation, I reckon the two Doctors are stuck in the closing moments of The War Games, as the Time Lords do their best Deus Ex Machina and resolve the story, thought that might be a fanwank too far even for Moffat… Peter Capaldi will clearly encourage Bradley Hartnell to embrace the change, only to realise that he has to do the same as well.

As for Gaytits, he’s either one of the War Lords or he’s the equivalent of Lieutenant Carstairs from that story. Or he’s simply channeling Captain Darling from Blackadder 4. Or he’s the Sam Kisgart Master… or Edward Brayshaw regenerated and trying to escape…

But I reckon he’s just a bargain basement Brigadier.

And I bet he says “Splendid fellows… both of you!”

…and Twelvy will regenerate in the TARDIS, where else. And we all know what happens then…

  1. I couldn’t help noticing the gloves either; I suspect that this may not be the First Doctor at all, but a certain *ahem* master of disguise.
