I GOT IT RIGHT!

DAVID BRADLEY IS WILLIAM HARTNELL AT CHRISTMAS!!!

The Beginning Of The End…

… starts now. Cue the pointless speculation!

Only four more days until we start to get some answers!

Regeneration!

OMG! WTF???

UPDATE:  #Regenerategate

Having teased us with the question of Who or What was in the vault, the Moff then goes on to make his triumph over the fanboys complete by pranking them with the tease of shots of an early regeneration in the trailers, with the reveal in the episode that in fact it was no such thing.

Which would be fine if we hadn’t already been down this road before – twice – with DWM turning Paul McGann into Nicholas Briggs and RTD having David Tennant regenerate into David Tennant. For Twelvy to pull the same stunt here just doesn’t work, and not just because we’ve seen it done better before. Diegetically, once Bill has shot him there’s no need for Twelvy to continue the test, so the only reason he engages in a biological firework display is for the non-diegetic reason that The Moff knows the fanboys will go ape over it. Naughty Moff!

And if you’re a fan there are some questions that it throws up that the episode fails to answer. Even though it’s only fans that care about this sort of thing, and hopefully they will get an answer in Moff’s DWM column before he leaves, they’re worth going over:

So can a regeneration be self-induced now? Isn’t that a bit like Time Lord suicide? And if the whole thing was a set-up, how did Richard know that Monk would walk through the door just as he was about to check Bill’s ID?

And most glaringly of all, why the hell doesn’t Bill comment on the regeneration that wasn’t? Okay, so she’s still in shock from being fraped but you’d think she would at least mention Twelvy going all November the 5th after she shot him. But she doesn’t. WTF?

 

The Master Returns!


OMFG!

He’s got The Beard!

The Two Masters!

Never mind all the sadness of Capaldi’s impending regeneration, or the anticipation of the return of the Mondas Cybermen, following The Moff’s warning at the recent screening of The Pilot, fandom was scratching it’s collective head as to what the Mega Spoiler at the end of episode one was going to be…

until today.

Was it going to be a cameo of River and Eleven at the frost fair in episode three?

No.

Was it Jenny, the Doctor’s Daughter?

No.

Was it Susan, the Doctor’s Granddaughter?

No.

Was it Polly, turning up to help defeat the Mondas Cybs in the finale?

No.

So what could this mega-spoiler possibly be?

Well, it was this:

 

 

I bet nobody saw that one coming, I certainly didn’t!

Can’t wait to see how Simm and Gomez are going to get on together…

Exciting as the news is, Whopix can’t help thinking that perhaps two incarnations of the Master and the Mondas Cybermen in the series finale  is maybe a bit much? Having Simm and Gomez on screen together would make a two-part finale on its own, and the idea of having two incarnations of the Master meeting each other has been done before…

And if the BBC Publicity Dept hadn’t stuck Simm in the trailer, I wonder how much longer they would have managed to keep his inclusion under wraps? We haven’t had a real surprise reveal since Derek Jacobi told us who he really was in Utopia

Despite being comprehensively spoiled by the Press, fandom can at least hold its collective breath for the next eleven weeks until in antici…pation of Simm’s return to the show, and wonder just how the Simm incarnation of the Master is going to get along with the Gomez incarnation of the Master…

…as well as wondering just how two Masters are tied up with whatever the Mondas Cybermen are up to. Still, not long to wait and now we know the last two episode titles…!

 

Mondas Returns!

Since Whopix is now working the nightshift at a well known online retailer, it was only today that he saw THIS:

The original Mondasian Cybermen return to Doctor Who as filming begins on the final block of the forthcoming series

Fekk! The Mondas Cybs are back!

What a nice parting gift for Peter to have his fave monsters in his “final” story. His inner fanboy must be squee-ing with delight to be going up against them. What a brilliant “thank you for the past three years”.

The suits are regulation silver, and the bulky headlamp has been scaled down, as has the huge chest unit of the originals. I just hope Nick Briggs does a better version of the voices than the original…

And, before you get too excited, I doubt this is a Moffat version of Spare Parts

WARNING!

SPOILERS FOLLOW!

+++++++++++++++++++

+++++++++++++++++++

+++++++++++++++++++

it seems it’s not just the Mondas iteration we’re getting for the finale, it looks like Earth is being invaded by a Multi-Cyber Squad of metal men…

not only do we get the Mondas Cybs, we also get both the Rise of the Cybermen and Nightmare in Silver versions too!

What d’you reckon the chances are that there are other versions lurking back on the Cybership? Moonbase Cybs? Invasion Cybs? Earthshock Cybs?

Let’s just hope this doesn’t turn out to be the Asylum of the Daleks version of Every Cyberman Ever!

Excited? We are now!
