Post theories pertaining to current/upcoming Doctor Who episodes here. They should probably stay here until, say, a year after airing? Due to length, this page had to be split. To find the WMG's placed in folders or to create new folders, go here.
Rory and Amy (and perhaps Rory's father) are not human.In Dinosaurs On A Spaceship, the Doctor grabs a couple of people from time, including the Ponds. At one point, he makes a point of saying that they're Ponds, not people. This seems like either just another quirky statement from the Doctor, but later, he also makes a point of calling Rory's father a Pond as well (instead of Williams). Now then, Amy is a reality warper, time traveler, and mother of the only other Time Lord in the universe (which makes sense, as Gallifrey's natives became Time Lords due to a certain hole in space and time). Rory is the father of that Time Lord, has over 2000 years of memories and is as feared at the Doctor was. Was, because apparently there's no record of him anywhere, again shown in Dinosaurs On A Spaceship. There is no historical record of The Doctor. There is no bounties on him. There is nothing, and The Doctor clearly did not know that (see the look of fear when he's being looked up). Something is extremely wrong with The Doctor's past, and chances are, the Ponds are at ground zero. Why they are not people, who knows?
Eleven is going to change the events of Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead.The only water in the forest is the river. "Forest" of the Dead contained "River" Song and piranhas. Air piranhas. Plus, it makes for an epic episode. Donna Noble, Amy and Rory Pond, 11 and 10 all with River. Could you imagine 11 pulling a "spoilers" on 10?
The Doctor will be captured by the Cybermen and converted into a Cyber LeaderI know this one sounds like it’s REALLY going out there (then again, doesn’t everything else?), but I actually have some evidence for this one. Now, as we are all aware, Steven Moffat is breaking up the current series in half, to include a “gamechanging” plot twist for us all to speculate over during the summer. But what could be so huge as to bring about such a massive "what the '''bleedin’ HELL?!?'''" response? Bringing back a long forgotten, but still immensely popular, villain. But for whom? The Zygons? The Haemovore? The freaking War Lord?! Nah, let’s just get the Cybermen in there. But how do I know that? Thanks to this page! note If you look long enough, you will clearly find the typed note:
The Apollo spacesuit is an early form of cyberman technology.As described by the troper above in The Doctor will be captured by the Cybermen and converted into a Cyber Leader, the idea that the spacesuit is a kind of very early cyber-technology has crossed my mind.
One of Matt Smith's Companions will be a lesbian.It is only a natural progression from Rose, Martha and Donna. Also, it would drive the shippers insane. Muhahahahah!
Every time the Master is killed, he'll regenerate into a different Time Lord.Thanks to the Drums.
The TARDIS will play a role in the Doctor's final undoing at the end of the Thirteenth or otherwise last Doctor's run.It doesn't seem to have been working so well lately, and since it's long been implied to be living, even sentient, it could well take offence to being beaten up by Ten simply because he's a selfish psycho who doesn't want to regenerate into Eleven. Plus, it would be a nice Death By Situational Irony - the Doctor's truest companion (none of this Rose or Donna or River crap) proves eventually to be his unravelling.
Amy is not human.She's an operative from some other planet's equivalent of Torchwood, and attempting to go undercover as a human police officer in order to gather information, but she made a mistake with the uniform. Also, her real form is frog-like. Someone, upon seeing her, made a reference to a pond, which is where she got her surname from. This would also explain why Matt Smith used the phrase "Mad as a box of cats" to describe her, rather than frogs - the poor guy is just that afraid of spoilers.
The Daleks will exterminate the Weeping AngelsHow do you kill a stone? The same way you kill everything else, by shooting with the Dalek's Death Ray thing.
That fanfic Matt Smith wrote about the Doctor meeting Einstein to get into character?It will become an episode. Except, you know, better written, since professionals would get a crack at it.
Cybus and Mondas Cyberman will get together and have some Cyberbabies!!!We know that Mondasians are still out there somewhere, and the Cybusmen won't let being destroyed, sucked into another dimension, dropped into Victorian London, exploded and then sent into another dimension...again stop them. These two groups will meet up and join their sweet sweet....TECHNOLOGY together. With the alternate universe Cyberman lacking the gold vunerability, it would definately have one benefit, and while my lack of old school Whoniverse knowledge prevents men from knowing what the Mondas Cyberman would bring to the Table, they are likely to have something good to offer. And Voila!! Two evil tastes, that taste evil together!!
The events of Series 5/6 are a recurring loop in time: Amy and Rory have already travelled with the Doctor in his Tardis and are now repeating eventsWhile nobody has a conscious memory of previously travelling the loop, Amy and Rory both have subconscious memories. That's why Amy knew the correct thing to do with the space whale, the Dalek android, and the vampire. It's also why Rory knew what caused the Tardis's 'bigger on the inside' and why he was able to talk about what the Doctor does to his companions as if he'd known him a long time.
Steven Moffat is in the employ of the psychiatry industry.Why else would someone want to continuously scare kids week after week?
The Weeping Angels are mutant Imajin.The sand falling from Amy's eyes were a hint towards their true form, as it tried to possess her. You can now thank the Crack for stealing away the chance of seeing the Tardis and Den-liner flying together in the season finale. Nice job breaking it villain.
Somehow, Amy Pond is really The Doctor and the existence of The Eleventh Doctor as a separate being is a side-effect of Ten's earlier aborted regeneration.She's saved the day on more occasions than "Eleven" so far and seems to possess a sense of empathy for others that Ten had which Eleven seems to lack completely.
Nothing horrible is going to happen to Amy Pond.Remember back in Silence of the Library, when River Song freaked out upon hearing Donna Noble's name? Because she knew what was going to happen to her. River didn't have any sort of devastated reaction when the Doctor introduced her to Amy, meaning that she's obviously going to live happily ever after. Obviously.
The job of the Eternal is to run away when the Doctor comes calling.The new Daleks are divided into five castes: the Strategist, the Scientist, the Drone, the Eternal and the Supreme. All the others seem relatively clear, but the Eternal's job description is rather vague. In fact, he is a living archive containing everything required to reconstruct the Dalek race from the scratch in a pinch. Whenever the Doctor makes appearance, the rest send the Eternal packing so that even if they get defeated, the Dalek Empire lives on. They showed some serious Genre Savviness in the Victory of the Daleks, so this kind of innovation would be very much in place.
Amy Pond is Donna regenerated
River Song will be a prisoner of the Doctor.We know for a fact that:
The Doctor Who universe is a later version of the Eternal Sphere, and the Time Lords are 4-D beings who live there as admins.The Doctor felt that his colleagues were interfering too much in the history of the Eternal Sphere x.0, with the Time War being the last straw, and the lock on the Time War is basically keeping the other admins locked out of the program. For "The Big Bang", the Doctor knew from the original Eternal Sphere program that a system restore was possible, with the help of the minds of Eternal Sphere residents, but he had to go outside the lock he put to keep the other Time Lords/admins out and he wasn't sure if Amy's memories would give him the link he needed to get back into the universe.
In Series 6, River will meet the Doctor for the first time.
The only reason the Doctor's time rewind slowed down occasionally was because of Amy
The reason the TARDIS exploded was because it got hit by lightning in the Time VortexYou can see it in the opening titles. Also, Time Vortex lightning is probably more than enough to damage a TARDIS, and the new opening titles appeared when the cracks did. Coincidence? I think not.
The Doctor Will Wear His Wedding Clothes Throughout The 2011 SeriesBowties are cool, but tuxes are cooler
The theme tune is currently missing the bass/beat because the master is goneIt's obvious that part of the theme tune and the drumming in the Master's head is intentionally the same, so what if they actually ARE the same thing? during the intro (since the very beginning of the original show) we'd always see the time vortex. So it could of been the drumming was background noise in the Time Vortex simply being played along side the theme tune. It was stronger in the intro for the 9th and 10th Doctor as it was getting closer to that point in his timeline (after the Time War had ended and the Time Lords gone).
Eleven WILL wear a Fez in season 6!C'mon, Matt Smith will bug Moffat so much that he will go Sure, Why Not?.
Amy Pond is...CAL, aka Library Computer Girl. Everyone died in the Library, but she saved them. She has taken Donna out of the picture by erasing her memory in the S4 finale. River was found interesting enough, so she was allowed to stay. Eventually she got tired of watching, and decided to cast herself as a Mary Sue with hidden reality-bending powers. This theory is based on two extremely convincing facts:
River never meets the Doctor past his eleventh incarnation.Instead she meets the Master, who fools her into thinking he is the Doctor, as part of an Evil Plan or you know...just for the evulz.
When Amy and Rory leave the TARDIS it will be because Amy gets pregnant.Basically, just because it's the happiest way I can think of for them to leave, and Moffat does seem to be a fan of happy endings. And it would be nice for the Doctor, after Rose and Donna's exits, and Martha disappointing him with her career choice. It would also mean they could still appear in the show from time to time when he goes to visit them (Uncle Doctor!) and... well, I just want it to happen.
The Master will return in a new regeneration — played by David Tennant.The Master somehow finds a way to manipulate the DNA and/or physical appearance of his next regeneration, and takes on the appearance of The Doctor (pre-regeneration, because that's what The Master knows). He then masquerades as The Doctor, eventually meeting River Song in this form (explaining how she recognized him in The Library, even though that was the only time Ten had ever met her.)
A human will become a Time Lord.This seems fairly likely to happen at some point. It was at one time mooted that Ace would attend the Prydonian academy and become a 'Time Lord' by studying; this seems unlikely now that Gallifrey is [Almost Dead] and the Time Lords are evil. The more probable option is that a human comes by a chameleon arch in some way and is able to rewrite his or her DNA to become a Time Lord. When you think about it, this could be a way to introduce a whole new race of Time Lords made from humans the same way the Daleks have been brought back, ooh, four or five times now? As the chameleon arches create implanted memories as well as changing physiology, they could even bring back the Gallifreyan civilization to some extent at the same time.
A Time Lord will be forced to regenerate in order to evade capture.Because it would be cool!
Prisoner Zero will return.He seems to know far too much about the Doctor, the Pandorica and the Arc Words for the next season (Silence will fall!). This suggests that their meeting in The Eleventh Hour was not the first from Prisoner Zero's point of view, not unlike River Song's backwards encounters with the Doctor. It was never revealed why Prisoner Zero was imprisoned. Given Moffat's penchant for revisiting earlier stories (especially in The Pandorica Opens), this may end up being something very important. His designation of Zero suggests that he is the most dangerous prisoner the Atraxi have, and the fact that they were willing to destroy the Earth to kill him further suggests it. It is possible that the Doctor will meet him again (along with Amy), and he will commit whatever act or horrible crime he ends up locked away for.
In Series 6...Another of the Virgin New Adventures will be adapted. Specifically All-Consuming Fire. However, it will be an updated adaptation with the 11th Doctor and set in the present day with the Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman version of Holmes and Watson. With Moffat working on both, he really should do it...
River Song's relationship with the Doctor is related to another Chameleon Arch incident.Sometime in the future, the Doctor picks River Song up as a companion. They travel with each other, but River doesn't end up being anything more than what the old companions were. Then some disaster happens, forcing the Doctor to once again use the Chameleon Arch and take on the disguise of "John Smith". River poses as his wife or possibly even gets married to him. This is where things get a little complicated for River. She falls in love with "John Smith" and his Human characteristics, which puts River into further doubt about whom she should choose, the Doctor or "John Smith". (Possibly in her romantic feelings for "John", she marries him during this time point.) As the danger strikes nearer and it turns out the Doctor needs to return, River is put in a horrible debate: risk the future of Earth (or the galaxy or whatever) and keep "John" or kill her lover and bring back the savior of the universe. Possibly even whatever alien threat is striking will tempt her with the possibility of keeping "John". However, River eventually makes the right decision, bringing the Doctor back and effectively killing "a hero to many", the "best man [she's] ever known". The Doctor is touched by her romantic feelings or impressed at what she did to save the universe and starts to trust her more intrinsically. By the time he's sent her back, he's told her his real name and given her a sonic screwdriver, either as a true sign of trust or as a Trust Password to himself to enact a Stable Time Loop. River, indeed, gives that vague answer of either being married, wanting to marry the Doctor - or something along those lines, because of the Doctor's Human self.
The Doctor never told River what order his regenerations come in.When River met 10 in the library, she assumed it was a Doctor from later in her personal time-line, and treated him as such. Of course, the Doctor (from his point of view) had never met her before, and we don't see him meet her again before he regenerates. Many people have wondered, therefore, why she assumed this. It must be because even though she has pictures of all the Doctors, she wasn't told which order they come in. Why not? Either the Doctor is really that afraid of spoilers (and considering how she 'died' and the events leading up to it, this is plausible) or he just really likes messing with her.
The Silence is actually the Big Good of the next series."The Pandorica is open, and Silence will fall." We all keep assuming that will mean the entire universe will go silent, which is a bad thing. But maybe the Silence is a person/thing (evidenced by a character named 'The Silent' listed for upcoming episodes), and its falling means it will be defeated. The only reason Prisioner Zero would have taunted the Doctor about this is because the Silence is something very important.
The War is not over.Rather, it is just beginning. The TARDIS explosion was caused by the TARDIS' heart overloading from lack of use. The War is between the forces of Order and Chaos. On one side of the War are visible monsters who go to ruthless lengths to enforce order in the universe, such as the Daleks, Cybermen, and Atraxi. On the other side of the War are invisible monsters who work to promote chaos in the universe, such as Prisoner Zero, Omega, and the Starwhale. The TARDIS exploded because the Eleventh Doctor is an infinite power source. Eleven is a massive power source because the TARDIS converts his artron energy into temporal energy and stores it in the TARDIS' heart. The monsters who like chaos (who I shall henceforth call the Beast Below Alliance) want to use the TARDIS' pent up temporal energy to destroy the universe. The Alliance promoting order (who I shall henceforth call the Borg Alliance) want to stop the TARDIS from exploding by stasis-locking Eleven by imprisoning him inside the Pandorica. The Borg Alliance succeeds in stasis-locking Eleven and the TARDIS, but does so too late, so the TARDIS ends up burning up in a star-like explosion instead of completely exploding, and destroying the universe entirely. Eleven was wrong when he said that the memory of the universe was contained within the Pandorica's "restoration field". That "restoration field" was actually designed to spread the memory of the universe rather than create it. Eleven has spent the entirety of Series 5 generating his own brat pack of Universe Clones (or gametes), so he decides to end the first battle of the war with a compromise: He shall destroy the current Whoniverse, and procreate a new one using the brat pack. He erases his own existence in the process, and it is uncertain whether or not Amy will be able to remember him back into existence. To Eleven, this is an acceptable risk to take, because he secretly wants to kill himself anyway. Luckily, Amy does remember him back into existence. This means that the Doctor's previous incarnations were erased from time, and Eleven is Amy's imaginary friend made real by Amy's ability to imagine people and things into existence. This means that Amy is now responsible for the existence of Eleven's infinite power source.
Time Lords are RealSteven Moffat's Whoniverse represents two actual parallel universes. The main characters of Series 5 represent actual forces in our universe. If the actors are only allowed to view their own lines, then Series 5 was a Fake Reality Show, and Series Six will be a Twisted Reality Show. Young Time Lords who enjoy Steven Moffat's writing are currently mobbing the Eleventh Doctor with Artron Energy in an effort to regenerate him. Our reasoning? The Series Seven Finale will bring about the Messianic Age in the Whoniverse and undo some of the damage caused by Rassilon. In our universe, the Series Seven Finale will undo some of the damage caused by St. Augustus. What this implies: The Series Six Cliffhanger involved Rory Pond trying to snog Eleven. Until this turning point in the series, Eleven body swapped with an entire harem of the Tenth Doctor's companions. When Amy snogged Eleven, she started his Tenth Regeneration, which enabled Eleven to "come out". Rory's snog with Eleven started a regeneration which enabled Eleven to "come back in". Rory Pond represents the Yin force and Amy Pond represents the Yang force. The "Deranged New Whovians" are young Time Lords. We are now mobbing Eleven with artron energy, so that he will come back out half-way, thereby balancing these forces in the Series Seven Climax, and repopulating the Time Lord race. Except we don't actually have two hearts. We're really just a bunch of old souls with young minds. Shortly after his birth, the Eleventh Doctor was bullied into denying his own identity by the inhabitants of a Country Village. Many of us went through a similar experience. If we seem like attention-whores, this may be the reason why. The Tenth and Eleventh actors are actual incarnations of the Doctor who performed a Body Swap in Real Life (even I'm unsure about this one).
The Silence is Faction ParadoxCracks in time, the unraveling of timelines, people, whole races, the universe being deleted from existence...Doctor Who hasn't just been holding the Timey-Wimey Ball, it's been playing hopscotch with it for all of 2010, not least of all the Doctor himself. This sounds like their brand of antics, if dialled down slightly from their source material.
There will be a spin-off of Moffat's Whoniverse called Blow TorchThe weird episode that attempted to repair Davros indicates that Jack Harkness and the Eleventh Doctor are different incarnations of the same character. The Eleventh Doctor seems designed for an adult hook-up series, but that would spoil Doctor Who. The solution? Give him an adult spin-off. (Or just a life outside of work).
The Guardians are behind the events of seasons five and six.The two Guardians are playing a game of Xanatos Speed Chess with each other, and both are trying to manipulate the Doctor for their own purposes. However, as they caused the Time War (come on, something that big has those two written all over it), they can't let the Doctor know it's them, as he's understandably a bit upset with them. In the trailer, it said that Amy, River and Rory had been recruited, and we also have a shot of the Doctor imprisoned, which could be to do with them. This implies that:
The Silence are Woobie Destroyers Of WorldsThey tried to get rid of space and time because the existence of space and time is intensely painful to them.
The fez is a Time Lord and it regenerated into the stetsonAfter being cruelly killed by River Song, the fez regenerated. When the Pandorica exploded, The Second Hat was scattered across time and space, until it was found wherever The Doctor finds it at the beginning of the next season. As the trailer showed us, The Hat is once again shot by River Song, after which it will probably regenerate again and find its way back to The Doctor (its grown fond of him you see). Maybe next time it will be a sombrero or a bowler or a top hat. And every time it finds The Doctor again, River is there to kill it again.
Doctor Who: 2010-20152010: Series Fnarg (The Tenth Doctor regenerates into Albus Severus Potter and fucks everything up). 2011: Series Shag (The Eleventh Doctor regenerates into Jeremy Clockson and picks up the pieces). 2012: Series Storm (The Twelfth Doctor regenerates into Sarah Palin and takes over the world). 2013: Series Sparks (The Thirteenth Doctor regenerates into Bloom from Winx Club). 2014: Series House (The Fourteenth Doctor regenerates into Thirteen from House and is played by Olivia Wilde). 2015: Series Honey (Amy Pond gives birth to the Twelfth Doctor: Alice in Wonderland).
The current Eleventh Doctor is Ferb Fletcher, and the current Twelfth Doctor is Vanessa DoofenshmirtzOne can deduce this logically by observing the Eleventh Doctor's words and behavior in A Christmas Carol.
The Eleventh Doctor is a Gallifreyan manifestation of Vashta NeradaAmy Pond, Rory Williams-Pond, Vanessa Doofenshmirtz, the Krafayis, and the Grooveshark (shark seen in A Christmas Carol) are also manifestations of Vashta Nerada.
Every ally and/or companion of the Eleventh Doctor has a corresponding character on GleeIt would explain why Puck got locked in a port-a-potty for twenty-four hours. The Eleventh Doctor's TARDIS looks like a pimped out port-a-loo.

Doctors Eight through Fourteen serve complimentary functionsThe Eighth Doctor and his ensemble suffer at 8PM daily, the Ninth Doctor considers the implications of the damage caused by the Doctor and the Master in the Last Great Time War, the Tenth Doctor does his best to maintain his sanity after remembering the heartbreak he has experienced in his last few incarnations, the Eleventh Doctor barfs Theories of Everything at at least one imaginitive denizen of Real Life, the Twelfth Doctor attempts to cure the Eleventh Doctor's mental imbalance, the Thirteenth Doctor suffers in silence, and the Fourteenth Doctor breaks up the Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors, which cures the Twelfth Doctor's mental imbalance.
The Silence is linked to the Doctor being the last of his race"When you’re alone, Silence is all you see,/When you’re alone, Silence is all you’ll be." I can't say just yet whether this pertains to just the Doctor or the last members of a race as a whole, but there is a crude correlation:
The Doctor's continuity is consistent with that of male protagonists in a lot of children's programmesDanny Phantom, The Fairly Oddparents, Jimmy Neutron, and Phineas and Ferb are consistent with the Eleventh Doctor's continuity. The Eleventh Doctor of 2011 can be compared to King Pariah in Danny Phantom (except Eleven can be much nicer than King Pariah).
The Eleventh Doctor is the Master's Cosmic PlaythingI imagine Doctor Who recruits the next Doctor through the following technique: Holding auditions in hopes of finding an affiliative Time Lord to play the role, casting an actress who is good at portraying the audience's current feelings as his companion, and broadcasting this fiction to the world. If somebody figures out what they are doing, and sees how the current Doctor character connects to the imaginary friends of themselves (or perhaps their peers), they earn the right to play the Doctor (although I suspect nobody had every piece of this intellectual puzzle before 2010).
The Eleventh Doctor wanted to be dreadedWatching Series 5 may expose fans to the Time Vortex. Schizophrenia may be the real-life counterpart of the Time Vortex.
The Eleventh Doctor is made of anti-matter and the ten? members of his ensemble are made of matterMetaphorically speaking. It would explain why Eleven was able to reboot the universe with another Big Bang. The first Bang Bang, if I am recalling correctly, is theorized to have resulted from a reaction between matter and anti-matter.
If the Eleventh Doctor said 'we've got the Brat Pack' he was referring to the actual Brat PackSarah, from Kyle XY is a regeneration of the Eleventh Doctor.
Every near-human species from the Whoniverse, is a spiritual ethnicity of Real LifeThat means the Reapers are still here, but are no longer angry. Why? iPhones are now easier to use.

"How could a fellow Gallifreyean stoop so low?" refers to...In The Brilliant Book of Doctor Who there were a series of teasers, the above message being one of them. This could refer to:
Another possible teaser in the Christmas Carol SongAmendment: "Let in the shadow", add to it the "halfway out of the darkness" theme of the episode with a dash of the "trying to anger the Doctor" subtheme of Series 5 with the peppering of the coming Valeyard served on a slice of "Time can be rewritten". Assuming Handy's creation is a regeneration then it is up to the 11th Doctor to face/become the Valeyard. The Christmas Carol episode and the Eleventh Doctor are absolutely flippant about rewriting history and time. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if he used the Tardis to get his choice seats at movies and McDonald's. It is possible that the Elventh Doctor may attempt to remove the darkness/shadow (through time travel to prevent its/his creation) from himself and this becomes the Valeyard. The Valeyard will need to be "let [back] in" into the Doctor. Stable time loop and mysterious vanishment of the Valeyard in the TV series explained. He vanishes abruptly after being he was hinted to live because Eleven takes him out that quickly after fulfilling the stable time loop.
Prisoner Zero was working with "The Silence".He knows too much for it to be mere coincidence. He's omnicidal enough to have a world destroyed with him. Not to mention the Atraxi were willing to broil the Earth and its seven billion inhabitants just to get at him. He joined The Silence either because he's not from this universe and has an unknown grudge against our own, or simply because he's an Omnicidal Maniac who wants to see the universe ret-goned.
Eleven is CALIn the novel Middlesex by Jefferey Eugenides, Cal was born intersex. Cal's parents thought he was a girl until Cal experienced male puberty. The Master resolved Cal's gender issues by splitting him into a pair of fraternal twins: CAL and the Eleventh Doctor.
Human!Ten is Matt SmithIf you can read this, you are a Time Lord.
Ten is still deciding how to save Wilf, and Series 5 and 6 is just Ten imagining what would happen if he stepped into the radiation-flooded chamber
The 000-virus seen in the Eleventh Hour is causing the cracksThe Doctor told, that it is a little bit alive. Maybe it evolved and learned in the mean time everything about Tardis Technologie. And it learned, that the Universe is flawed (or something like that) and planed to destroy it, to start a new more elegant solution.
When Amy and Rory leave the TARDIS it will be because Rory gets pregnant.
The Dreamlord is not the ValeyardBecause the Doctor has previously met and had a confrontation with the Valeyard. The Doctor will actively prevent the creation of the Valeyard, so his dark evil side takes on a different form; the Dreamlord.
The Silence is not a what or a who, but a WHERE. A location, maybe a planet or city. And it will be conquered.
The Dreamlord is the MasterWe never saw exactly what happened to the Master, and considering how many times villains can be gone for good in Doctor Who, it's quite probable he'll return at some point. I propose that, somehow, some part of his consciousness ended up in the Doctor's mind. The Doctor didn't notice because he was highly stressed, and then he regenerated. When something happens to weaken the Doctor's will, these remnants of the Master's personality will be able to manifest themselves, in the form of the Dreamlord. They were also responsible for the Tardis blowing up; even if just once, they managed to gain control long enough to sabotage things.// Just don't ask me how this happened. I'm sure less plausible things have happened.
Series 6 will feature Nine/Ten's TARDISIf you pause at exactly the right moment at 0:37 in one of the trailers, you'll see this: http://img855.imageshack.us/i/tenstardis.jpg/ Yeah. Eleven's TARDIS doesn't have those curvy support beam-thingies. Nine/Ten's does. (Also a lot of people were saying that the people looked like Ten and Rose, but it's pretty obviously Rory and Amy.) My guesses are that the Silence somehow puts them into the actual old TARDIS or whoever was making the TARDIS from "The Lodger" made it in the same design as Ten's. Either way sounds suspicious, but there is no way that's Eleven's TARDIS.
The Black TARDIS seen in "The Lodger" is......a human's attempt to reverse engineer a TARDIS
River is the Doctor's mother
There are two Doctors and two TARDISes, having split off during the Tenth Doctor's explosive regeneration.The Doctor we've seen throughout Series 5 is only one of them. His TARDIS was badly damaged and underwent a complete internal makeover (a regeneration of its own, so to speak). The other Eleventh Doctor, meanwhile, while looking and acting exactly the same as his 'brother', didn't end up in the same place after his regeneration and never met Amy or Rory. His TARDIS also wasn't damaged much or at all, and continues to look the same inside as Nine and Ten's. This Doctor didn't take any companions and went off on his own adventures during Series 5, and may or may not have had a few encounters with River Song along the way. Something like this could explain:
River Song is a Troper.
The Astronaut in "The Impossible Astronaut" is...
In The Impossible Astronaut, that was not the Doctor.It was all a ploy by The Silence, or some other enemy of the Doctor, to deceive and ultimately alienate his friends. Given Nine and Ten's rather short lifespans, it is very unlikely that Eleven will live for over two hundred years before regenerating into Twelve. It is also possible that it was a plan by a future version of River and the Doctor to actually prevent his 'death' that River remembered happening, and that the 'Doctor' was actually some sort of robot being controlled elsewhere by the real Doctor.
River is the TARDIS in Human form
The Doctor is the astronaut in 2011.He said, "I know it's you" and "no one interfere" before he died, claiming he knew what was going to happen.
The reason the Doctor died at the lake......is because Amy shot the Astronaut. It wanted revenge, and the Doctor didn't want to lose another companion. So, being the self-sacrificing timetraveller he is, he promised the Astronaut that it couldn't kill Amy, but it could kill him. So it all becomes a stable time loop, or as close as they can get to it with the sheer amount of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey going down.
The Silence aren't malicious, they just don't want people to forget themWhy else would they wear fancy suits if they didn't want people to remember them? The memory erasure is out of their control, but they are desperate to have people both remember them and compliment their appearances. The reason why that one Silent (proper term?) killed that women is that she was constantly forgetting about him, and whenever she looked back, she only commented on his face and never his suit. Eventually he got so frustrated that he killed her, but he regretted it afterward. This is also why he let Amy take a picture of him. The reason why they acted so fearsome in the sewer is because River caught them without any make-up, and a few of them were nude, as I recall. They don't want to be remembered like that. Also note that, as of yet, there is no obvious connection between the killer space suit and the Silence. Besides the woman who was killed out of frustration, there is no evidence that they are being malicious at all.
The Doctor in Series 6 isn't the real DoctorThe Real Doctor is trapped behind the cracks after driving the Pandorica into the TARDIS explosion. The Doctor in Series 6 is the Doctor, but a version "remembered" into existance by Amy. This Doctor is the one who gets killed in "The Impossible Astronaut", and the Astronaut is actually the Real Doctor having got back through the cracks in time. However, since there can't be more than one Doctor in existence at the same time, the Real Doctor has to kill the "remembered" Doctor to stop reality breaking. Again. Elaborating on this theory, all the stuff that happened during the 200 years that the Doctor supposedly spent running was actually him working to free the Real Doctor from the cracks.
Future!Doctor actually wants to deliberately initiate a paradoxAs part of Future!Doctor's plan to either get rid of the Silence (who may or may not have weaved themselves into the earth/universe via the Time Cracks in Series 5) via a univere-collapsing timey-wimey thing, or to summon the Reapers (from Series 1, in case anyone forgot) to help deal with the problem, as well as to rescue his past self from his eventual death.
Amy's baby is a Time Lord.She got impregnated during "Amy's Choice". The reason she isn't showing is because it was only half a dream, so like Schroedinger's Cat it keeps fading in and out of existence.
Amy Pond is God.Amy is able to reimagine things into being. The Doctor comes when she feels lonely arriving in a police box directly after she prayed to Santa for a Policeman. The Cracks exist because Amy thought the crack in her wall was scary, so she unconsciously imbues it with the power to end the universe. Her parents are gone because when she was young she wished them out of existence. The Doctor was late because Amy doubted he'd come back in just 5 minutes (a young girl's fear of abandonment working against her). He leaves because she doesn't need him anymore, and her doubts the night before her wedding bring him back. The Doctor even implies that she's God when she tries to seduce him after "Flesh and Stone", saying that "The most important thing in the universe is that I get you sorted out right now."
There was a bit of The Doctor buried in the sand where he was shot.Think Hakarl. The Doctor cuts off a toe and buries it in the sand. When he starts to regenerate after being shot the first time, he funnels the energy into the toe as in Journey's End. The toe starts cooking. After everyone has left, someone capable of surviving a metacrisis, guided by envelope number 5, digs up the toe and grows it into Doctor 11.5.
Canton Delaware fell in love with...
Amy isn't pregnant.At first glance, there were clues littered throughout the episode pointing towards Amy being pregnant; her gaining weight, the morning sickness, etc. But at the same time, she never really acted in a way that seemed to indicate that she was actually pregnant; she never seemed worried about how she moved, and whether it would hurt the developing fetus, and in the picnic scene she drank wine. While she did indicate nausea, so did River and Rory after seeing the Silence. Incidentally, the only time she seemed to want to tell the Doctor anything was right after her encounter with them. Which could mean:
The Silence impregnated Amy with a hybrid baby.Psychically, of course, probably the first time Amy saw one of them. River and Rory are backups.
The Silents will meet the Weeping Angels.And it will be the best staring contest / peek-a-boo game in history!
If Omega shows up again he will be played by Peter Davison
The Silence are Weeping Angels.They're way too similar. Angels move through time normally, but only exist in space when someone is looking at them. In the same manner, the Silents always exist in space but only exist in time when people are looking at them. They've also been around since at least the time humans invented fire. According to Blink, the Angels are older than the universe. We all know that any image of an Angel has the powers of an Angel, ie it will move when you aren't looking at it. Looking away from the image of a Silent, likewise, will cause you to forget the Silent existed. What if, due to the events of the end of last season, the Angels that got removed from existing in Flesh and Stone came back wrong at the start of reality, with their basic powers flipped? That would mean the title refers to how the Angels began to transform into beings of flesh. Which leads to my next theory
Every time a Weeping Angel is visible when nobody is looking at them, it's because a Silent was watching themWe just don't remember seeing them. Also, the Silence are apparently responsible for every single time a human ever felt like they weren't alone in a room. Kind of like the sensation of thinking you're being watched. The Angels Amy had to sneak past with her eyes closed were statues at the time because they thought they were being watched and turned to stone. They didn't start moving when she revealed she was actually blind, they already knew that. The Silence just quit looking at them. And as it's been said before, the time it takes for a television to reload frames is less than the time it takes to blink, so what you saw during Flesh and Stone was what really happens when only the viewer is looking at the Angels. If you don't think something went horribly wrong with the crack and the Angels, I should point out that the Angel in Amy's mind fell into a crack and got erased. The Pandorica should have revived it and killed her instantly, and yet it didn't, meaning that at least that one Angel no longer exists even after everything that was unhappened by the crack came back to existence.
The Astronaut is BENHe walked out of a lake. A lake. Like what Ben drowned in. Eleven references the moon shortly before he shows up. The MOON. The Astronaut's identity is concealed by it's visor, which functions as a mask. A MASK. I rest my case. Shock and Awe powers. It would also explain why document #055-1 theorizes the existence of a conspiracy “to silently observe” a number of the Foundation’s activities. And just how many anti-memes can there be?
The astronaut killing the Doctor is only the suitRiver said the suit is capable of self-repair, and has integrated weaponry. We also saw it move, to which River speculates that it may be able to move autonomously, without an occupant, and it seems to have been tied to the girl's mind to function. Thus, when the girl ripped it apart, the last recorded thought was "The spacemen are going to eat me, I have to do something!". Now fast-forward forty-two years, with the Doctor and company having a picnic by the lake. The suit detects a spaceman, and emerges to 'do something'. He shoots the Doctor twice (the bolts emanate from the inside of the wrist, a good position for a concealed energy weapon), triggering a regeneration, but seeing the target is still active, fires a third time, killing it without knowing what needed to be done.
Reason for the SpacesuitThe Silence steal technology from species all over space. The Pandorica was available on earth two thousand years before the Spacesuit, and the Silence have probably got access to most of the species that built it. The Girl is a Time Lord, and is seen regenerating not long after the Silence start being driven back. We can assume the Silence can build life support good enough to keep a Time Lord alive, which means preventing them from regenerating. For whatever reason, they didn't want the Girl to regenerate, at least not until a certain point. They've also been able to program her for plenty of time. The Suit killed the Doctor, then killed him again mid-regeneration. For some reason, the Silence really don't like time lords regenerating - maybe regeneration scrambles their programming?
The astronaut suit in "Day of the Moon" had Dalek technology in it.It's a life support suit with around "twenty different types of alien tech" in it, and it can keep the being inside alive without food or drink. Sounds a lot like the life support capability of the Daleks' armour. I mean, in all likelihood the Silence must have had multiple chances to have come across the Daleks. One of the most likely times they would have had the chance to analyze and steal Dalek tech would've been during "Daleks in Manhattan," especially after Dalek Sec left his armour after becoming a hybrid.
Rory and Amy's relationship has been a fraud from the very beginning, manipulated by the Silence.While it is very clear that Rory loves Amy, she definitely doesn't seem to show the same devotion. The Silence don't need to influence Rory since his love is genuine, but they have always been around Amy ever since she met the Doctor. However, Rory is also part of their ultimate plan... to eliminate the Doctor. Subconsciously, she trusts and loves the Doctor more and bits of it slip by that the Silence aren't able to control. In particular, her 'falling out of the sky' speech when taken by the Silence that quite clearly seems to refer to the Doctor... but she was then implanted with a post-hypnotic suggestion to say that she was referring to Rory. Amy's 'baby' is most likely the unknown Time Lord-girl and was created by the Silence with a Time Lord's DNA, and all memories of it were erased. She was created to pilot their TARDIS- knockoffs (as seen in The Lodger, only a Time Lord-mind is strong enough to do so without killing the pilot). Whether it is the Doctor's DNA or not makes no difference, because Rory would still feel extremely betrayed, especially when he also discovers that Amy doesn't actually love him and considers him to be an inferior shadow to the Doctor. Due to a combination of being heartbroken, not being the father of Amy's child, remembering nearly 2000 years of an alternate time-line where he protected and watched over her, and dying / being erased from existence / becoming a plastic duplicate and then human again... Rory will simply snap and join the enemies of the Doctor, having nothing else left. He is the astronaut at the beginning of The Impossible Astronaut, finally getting his revenge. The Future!Doctor's plan is to set in motion a paradox that will prevent both his death and Rory from succumbing too far into The Dark Side to come back, as he did in the original time-line of Future!Doctor.
The creepy face woman is the Dream Lord.I absolutely refuse to accept that such a creepy villain was nothing more than psychic pollen. No, he's hanging round still, and he's trying to get to Amy. He materialises as the creepy woman - which, for reasons that will be revealed, is somehow meaningful to Amy - whenever she's feeling particularly jumpy. He's also somehow affecting the TARDIS to confuse the pregnancy scanner, as well as Amy's mind on the subject. Maybe the above theory is right about Amy not truly loving Rory, and she's terrified of being linked to him forever with a child. Maybe there's some other reason why he would freak her out this way. I'm not sure how this would all come together, but it's just weird that everything else in the last series was somehow meaningful, and he apparently meant nothing. I think he's definitely behind some weird stuff in this series.
All of series six is another Dream Lord-run collective dreamAnd the TARDIS crew are in a hospital, asleep. The eyepatch lady is using alien tech to look into the dream and make sure their consciousnesses are doing OK and if they're showing signs of waking.
The eyepatch lady is....
The "House" mentioned in "The Doctor's Wife" trailer is the Ood BrainAs above, they have reason to want revenge on humanity. And there's a scary looking Ood in the trailer...
Amy is in an institution in an alternate timeline.By remembering at her wedding, Amy brought the Doctor back into existance. However in the timeline before he came back, she continued to insist on his existance. She was eventually institutionalized, and the Eyepatch Woman is her doctor or superviser. Likewise the Pregnant/Not Pregnant effect is due to the alternate world "interfering".
The Time Lords in "The Doctor's Wife" aren't Time Lords at all.Rather, they're humans who wanted to be like Time Lords and operated on themselves to get two hearts. Of course, they had to get the extra hearts from somewhere... and were exiled to a parallel universe for their heart-stealing.
The Doctor will build a TARDIS in "The Doctor's Wife"There is amazing logic behind this. From trailers, teasers and a contest, we know that...
The "wife" referred too in the title of Neil Gaiman episode is the TARDISThey've been together for a long time. He obviously loves the TARDIS, and given from the trailers it seems to be a large part of the episode. What if the title is actually referring to the TARDIS?
The TARDIS exploding wasn't intended to end everything.From what we've seen of the Silence, they don't seem like omnicidal maniacs. Yet they're responsible for the cracks. Why did they do this? All part of their Evil Plan. They knew the Doctor would save reality, because they were behind it and the Pandorica. The fact that Amy Pond was capable of remembering the Doctor back into existence was an extension of their ultimate plan-to learn and perfect rewriting reality. To become a more powerful force, even gods. Their sudden prescene could be an example of this-before Series Six, they could've been a primitive race. Now,they're manipulating humanity. And in a few more attempts...
"The Doctor's Wife" will feature the return of PatienceShe's a Time Lady from the classic series who was the wife of Omega, the Other, and the Doctor in the book The Infinity Doctors.
House from "The Doctor's Wife" is the one behind the Fake TARDIS from The Lodger.He survived the episode somehow, and his soul escaped to Earth. He had the fake TARDIS built... somehow, so he could possess it and continue his quest to search for more delicious food.
One of the Corsair's regenerations was Dana ScullyThat tattoo...
Flesh (from The Rebel Flesh) is based upon Vespene tech.Because I recall that The Doctor mentioned there being alien technology involved in the process, and the process seems to be akin to that of the Vespene duplicates. It also would explain Rory's empathy, as he remembers being a Vespene duplicate.
Neil Gaiman ships the Doctor with the TARDISI defy anyone to watch The Doctor's Wife and not wonder about this.
The Doctor will team up with the Daleks to stop the SilenceThings will get so bad that the Doctor will be forced to team up with his greatest enemies. It's a common trope, but it will still be neat to see. Plus, it has happened in the old series before. Even if the Daleks still forget the Silence when not looking at them, the Doctor will be able to count on them to shoot them on sight.
The "flesh" technology from The Rebel Flesh is related to Sontaran cloning technology.The Doctor mentions it's somehow alien in origin and in a season four two-parter (Doctor and Donna travel to earth to answer a distress call from Martha Jones) the Sontarans clone a copy of Martha in a similar looking vat. Also, the brass-looking acid suits are very similar in shape to the general Sontaran suit shape. Rebel Flesh cloning technology is either derived from Sontaran tech or is actually the origin of Sontaran technology. And to be honest, even if this is Jossed, it would have still worked really well as a plot.
Rory and Amy's relationship will get progressively worse as this season goes on.Somehow, I don't think Amy will be too happy about Rory abandoning her to save another woman who he barely knows and who evidently fancies him. Nor will she be too pleased about him holding hands with her Ganger while they were having the human-Ganger meeting. Sure, from his point of view there's nothing wrong with reassuring and going to save people, but watching his interactions with Ganger!Jennifer and his desperation to find Original!Jennifer makes me think there's going to be some words after all this.
From Rory's point of view, Amy's apparent refusal to accept the Gangers as just as human as the Originals, when he himself has experienced being an artificial being with human memories and emotions, must be infuriating. The fact she doesn't believe that the artificial creations can be so human, when one protected her for 2000 years, is actually pretty shocking when you think about it. Rory may not be able to look at Amy the same way after this.
Looking at the episodes we've had already, we've had Rory hearing Amy apparently profess her love for the Doctor - sure, it said she was talking about Rory, but "falling out of the sky"? Even as a saying, that doesn't apply to Rory at all! That would imply them appearing out of nowhere, and they've known eachother since they were children. And then her getting at him during Curse of the Black Spot for saying the Siren was the most beautiful creature in the world, while under mind control. Sure, I can imagine her being upset, bu tRory has more than proved his love. And even though it was only a trick by House, there could well have been something in Rory's hate Amy scribbles: after all, House knew about Rory's wait in the first place, so who's to say he didn't get into his mind somehow, and that there wasn't some thread of real feelings in there?
As the series goes on, things will just get worse and worse. Amy's constant shock and fear at seeing the eyepatch lady cannot possibly help things. I'm hoping that it will turn out to be part of some plot by some Big Bad, and that the series will end with something happening to remind them how much they love eachother, not with them breaking up or something.
The Flesh is related to the technology used on Gallifrey to create new Time LordsThe Doctor was too freaked out by that goop for it to not have some greater relevance, and he was rather reticent to discuss it. It hasn't just made a copy of the Doctor, it's made a completely functioning Time Lord, with all the regenerative and superhuman powers that would suggest, as well as implying that the Time Lords are (of course) not completely done for.
Rory is the titular Good Man who Goes to War in the midseason cliffhangerNot the Doctor. Not that wild a guess, but I thought it should be out here. The two of them are going to save Amy, which gives Rory even more motivation than the Doctor, and Rory is technically the only "man" involved. Genetically, Time Lords are not human.
Several of the above are true with a twist.The Little Girl is a Time Lord (or at least partially). The Little Girl is Susan, The Doctor's grandaughter. The Little Girl is Amy and Rory's daughter. Rory is The Doctor's son. His mother is River.
The Church is going to wage war on the Doctor
The Doctor will become infamous instead of famous
Tying in with the two theories above, the universe will start to fear The Doctor...
River Song is Melody Pond
River kills The Doctor's good side metaphorically during GMGTW.
The Eleventh Doctor will not raise baby!River... the First Doctor willHe will raise her as a Time Lady, but to help her keep in touch with her human side, he will enroll her in a school in 1963 London under the name Susan.
Amy was taken during The Time of AngelsIt could fit the time line. Plus, The Church was in the episode and could have easily kidnapped the real Amy and replaced her before the crisis started.
The Church is against the Doctor because of the genocide of the Weeping Angels.
The Church is against the Doctor because he is too divineThink about it... Someone who is only referred to by a title, someone whose legend has spread across the Universe, people fear and love Him... Perhaps even worship?
The real Big Bad has yet to be revealedThe Doctor can't 'beat' in any conventional sense an alliance of people who are convinced they're doing the right thing without cementing their belief that he's the nastiest thing in the universe. But seeing as the series is, you know, Doctor Who, he's got to be the hero eventually or it's just no fun. So, the only way he can win is for something really big, really nasty and really new to show up and threaten absolutely everyone, leaving the Doctor to save everyone yet again, including the alliance against him, and prove that he's not such a bad chap after all. After all, we STILL don't know who blew up the Tardis.
The Jenny present in "A Good Man Goes To War" is a regenerated version of Jenny from the Doctor's Daughter suffering from retrograde amnesia.Come on the writer wouldn't reuse a name this significant without some pay off in mind.
River's consciousness, still in the Library mainframe, will be downloaded into a new body......that of a baby, so that Amy and Rory will be able to actually raise their child. That'll be how Amy, Rory and River depart the series.
The Doctor dies for real in The Impossible Astronaut and River will take his placeAs in the previous WMG, the Doctor retrieves River from the Library, but then he goes to get shot by young River. Presumably she is programmed / brainwashed to kill the Doctor and can only be free when he is dead, so Eleven has no choice but to sacrifice himself. Older River inherits the TARDIS and becomes the show's main character.
The carved Gallifreyan writing on Melody's/the Doctor's cradle said "Hello, Sweetie".It's the first written words Melody/River sees in her life, and we know she remembers the cradle because she comments on how long it's been since she last saw it. Makes sense those would be the words she always uses to greet the Doctor.
Life, the Universe and Everything, or "A theory on Series 6 (and a little on 5)"Okay, so this just came to me, so forgive me if it's a little bit incoherent, I'll tidy it up later. What we know, in no particular order:
The Doctor will go to the Gamma Forest and meet a younger version of LornaThe Doctor will meet Lorna again at the gamma forest where he takes young River to grow up (where she then becomes known as River and decides she likes the name, possibly because it seperates her from being known as "melody" because that was her name while being raised as a weapon against the Doctor) Lorna mentioned the Doctor being there was the only eventful thing to happen there and it seemed like her character should of been more important from the focus she got.
Ten and Eleven will never meet in a crossover special.Ten was reluctant to regenerate, and from what I could tell, he had no idea what kind of man he'd become, making it unlikely that he ever met Eleven.
If Ten and Eleven ever meet in a crossover special, Ten will not be able to stand Eleven.Eleven is a little bit more aloof than his previous counterpart, and to someone who doesn't know him well, he can seem kind of heartless. Ten is so reluctant to regenerate because he doesn't want to become what he thinks Eleven is.
If Ten and Eleven ever meet in a crossover special, Ten will be proud of his successor.The complete opposite of the above idea. While there will almost certainly be some clashing between the regenerations, at some point Ten and Eleven will have a proper heart-to-heart, and Ten will confirm to Eleven that he is happy in who has taken up the mantel. For some of the fans, who were less than happy of the depressing way Ten left, some of the bittness of the regeneration will be wiped away, even if Ten doesn't even remember the incident.
The Silents are trying to save the universe.From what we've seen, the Silents aren't the cosmic retgonners we've been led to believe. I'm going out of a limb here, and not only saying their benevolent, but actively trying to stop the cracks. They are one of the many species who fear the Doctor, and see him as responsible for the cracks. They have allied with Korvarian, in a misguided attempt to stop the Doctor. The Doctor's genocide of their race is confirmation that they are in the right. Why are they so terrifying? Good Is Not Nice, of course. The Doctor must sort things out, unless the true villain becomes victorious.
River's identity will lead to Amy and Rory leaving.I highly doubt the two are going to react well after learning their child is going to be raised as a Child Soldier, and ultimately become the proto-Time Lord known as River Song. At the end of Season 6, Amy and Rory will leave the Doctor due to the Fridge Horror-powered trauma that River's identity will create. Similar to how Martha left in order to help her family deal with the trauma the Master inflicted.
The Doctor is his own father.There are various allusions to River Song being the Doctor's lover, mother, or killer. In fact, she's all three. From her personal timeline, she first meets him, then kills him (no doubt to help him, though the reason has yet to be revealed) then marries him, becomes pregnant, and gives birth to him, all while moving steadily backwards in time until she's on Gallifrey 1000 years in the past. Much as the cyclical lessons on proper Tardis piloting, taught to younger River so she can teach earlier versions of the Doctor, River knows his name because he told it to her on their wedding night, and then she gives him the name herself. This is the entire reason the Tardis has been so intent on protecting Earth all this time, because without it there would be no Amy Pond, no Melody Pond/River Song, and hence no Doctor at all.
Amy's parents never existed.No, I don't mean that her parents were eaten by time cracks. I mean that she never had any parents to begin with. Amy is a living paradox, a Humanoid Abomination who can defy causality. Possibly the masterpiece of Faction Paradox. The Doctor doesn't think that such an entity is possible, so he thinks Amy simply lost her parents to the crack. These "new parents" are simply figments of her imagination made real. She may even be God...
Amy is aware of previous adventures by the Doctor.In many episodes, its established that there are conspiracy theorists surrrounding the Doctor. Also, ignoring the cracks eating things, the Earth has been invaded a lot since 2005. The invasion by the Sycorax was total confirmation to Amy that she was right. Her general hobby included researching past alien incursions, and the legend of the blue box. She was likely one of the many groups that complained how absurd it is that the government expects people to ignore such incursions. These include a giant asteroid over London, metal men appearing all over the world and shiny spheres vaporizing the President. Amy was likely a fan of Harold Saxon, because he was against hiding evidence of aliens. Nonethless, she was shocked when she learned he was evil. I almost forgot: Amy S(the S is for sexy) Pond would've had Rory rolepaly as the Raggedy Doctor when he sonicked her. Not to mention construct a sonic screwdriver "toy"]] for personal sonicking.
Predictions for the future of the series.
Possible motives for the Doctor's allies in A Good Man Goes To War.
Rory is the Astronaut
Rory became a nurse (and eventually hopes to be a doctor) for Amy
Rory became a nurse (and eventually hopes to be a doctor) out of some big respect thing for people's lives
The Eleventh Doctor will snog Rory before he leaves as a companion
Jenny "The Doctors' Daughter" will have a very important role in the end of Series 6, or at least the resolution of its Story ArcMadame Kovarian designed River to be the ultimate Laser Guided Tyke Bomb in the war against the Doctor: A Time Lord-like being, with the skills of a warrior. Remind you of anyone we know?... She might end up being River's foil and, in a Big Damn Heroes moment and after an epic fight, bring about her Heel-Face Turn... Because who wouldn't want to see a fight, and later an alliance, between the two closest things to Time Ladies left in the universe? The Doctor's Daughter and his wife, together? Awesome.
Madame Kovarian has personal reasons for trying to kill the DoctorIt just feels that way. She risked her life for this plan to work but still said the Doctor is a good man (and good men have rules). She hasn't been foiled by the Doctor many times before (in his timeline), so we can assume it's in her future. Adding to that, the reason she didn't just shoot the Doctor or set Demons Run to explode (making sure that she's the only flesh copy left and thus eliminating anything Time Lord-like) is that something he did in his future made all this possible, or gave her her motivation in the first place. The trap is to send him to either find a younger Kovarian and give her that motivation or make all this possible in some other way.
Madame Kovarian is a previous regeneration of River Song.In this trailer, you can see River dressed up as her very briefly, including the eye patch. Given that River and Kovarian look nothing alike, this obviously isn't a disguise. Madame Kovarian hates the Doctor with a passion, and for what better reason: She was told that her parents had either abandoned her or were killed because of the Doctor, and wants to destroy him because of it. This also creates a massive Stable Time Loop in which she only knows this by her own future self indoctrinating her, and that in effect River is the Big Bad this season. It's especially painful for the present River because all of it has already happened to her and she can't change a single thing or do much to help. At some point when Melody is still a little girl, she escapes the Silence and regenerates, and is found by the Doctor. Knowing full well who she is and what she will become, he can do nothing for her and tell her almost nothing about herself and ultimately abandons her again, making her hate him all the more. This is what River was talking about to Rory... the first time she met the Doctor from her own point of view, though by this point her bitterness was gone and she sees that the Doctor truly cared about her. Somehow, the girl ends up growing up into Madame Kovarian, possibly with more regenerations used along the way. In time, she finds out that her parents are both alive and that what was said to her (ironically, by herself) about the Doctor was a lie, and is betrayed and fatally wounded. She then regenerates into River and willingly submits herself to Stormcage to try and atone for all the hurt she has caused. Note that Kovarian knows that Amy and Rory are her parents, but at the time of Melody's birth whatever horrible thing that she thought was going to happen to them still hasn't yet. It's possible that she may think that killing the Doctor will save them, for some twisted reason, and her plan can't possibly fail since she experienced it all before when she was younger (she is wrong, of course). So Kovarian wants to kill the Doctor for not having a normal childhood with her parents, which was all her future self's fault by kidnapping and brainwashing her in the first place. Timey-Wimey Ball, indeed.
The Silents exist in Real Life.
Madame Kovarian wants to stop the Valeyard
Without the skills she learned as a weapon to kill the Doctor, River Song would not have lived very long
Melody Pond is a human Time Lady
Craig has broken up with SophieIt saddens me to say this but but no one had said ANTHING of her coming back and Sophie is not in the trailer.
The Doctor will try to kill Hitler with the chronosteel dagger from the The Sarah Jane Adventures.
The Silence are what Area 51 is covering up.I say this because in the trailer, I saw a Silent being in a liquid canister.
The Eyepatch of evilThe new coming soon trailers give us River and and an unknown chessplayer character (Celestial toymaker, anyone?) the same eyepatch Madame Kovarian wears. My personal theory is that it acts as a perception filter of some sort, and "forces" a perspective on the wearer to a certain goal/perception, like say, kill the Doctor, or something. I can see how the Silence might either be creating the technology or are actually the source of the item itself.
River Song is the TARDISSo, despite the heavy Doctor/River shipping that's been happening, Moffat randomly decides to throw in an episode where we see a much longer-lived relationship cast into the limelight? In an episode called The Doctor's Wife? When River has been heavily implied to be just that? It all makes sense now! At some point, the TARDIS comes to life again, as River! Perhaps it was even the Doctor meeting River in the first place that put the idea in her mind.
The Doctor won't travel in time for a while, time will come to himThere are 5 Daleks in existence, and the Doctor knows the TARDIS is kind of broken. If he goes to the future, there is a chance that he won't be able to come back before the Daleks craft an empire and exterminate the universe. Thus the Doctor won't go through time, but instead follows the Daleks. But, you ask, river song was in the previews, how can she appear in the 1940's? The answer, my friends, is that there are cracks in space/time. The whole world with the statues fell through a crack.
Rory's camera phone will continue to be an important plot point.It was already important in The Eleventh Hour, and a clip from Vampires in Venice shows him taking a picture of Amy in Venice. Perhaps it will be used in order to prove some event happened, after the event gets swallowed and erased by the crack?
At some point in the future, dissident members of the subject races of the Human Empire, including the Ood and the Hath, will join together and travel back in time to 20th century Earth to avert the empire's creation. And the Doctor will stop them.That's why that playback of invaders the Doctor saved the Earth from includes those two. Corollary: If the Doctor hadn't interrupted the playback by stepping through it, it would've shown Twelve and Thirteen.
Time Lords are Egyptian deitiesAre you my mummy? Are you my mummy? Are you my—SHUT UP!!!
Dying in the library was a temporary hiccup for RiverCome on, we saw in that very episode that the computer everyone was saved on can bring them back into reality, making new bodies with the matter in the air. That's literally the happy ending for everyone else in the episode, they get retrieved from the library's files with their bodies rebuilt like the transporters from Star Trek. The reason everyone who died during the episode didn't get so lucky was because only their minds made it into the computer, not the information of how to build their bodies. But the question is, so what? Sure it can't build a genetically accurate copy of their original body, but it CAN build a human body that looks just like their old one and port them into it. River and the others in the library will all get new bodies, although this probably means River/Melody will lose her Time Lady powers, given a lack of genetic source material to rebuild her Human.Plus! body with. But wait! River has been travelling with the Doctor on and off for a while now, so who's to say he can't just get a strand of River's hair or something for the computer to use. Literally all he has to do is borrow a hair from River, go to the library, give the computer the sample, and River gets her body back AND all her Time Lady powers.
Let's Kill Hitler will see baby Melody killed off.I just have a bad feeling, with the preview to the episode, that something has gone, is going or will go wrong. Terribly, terribly wrong. The line "I know she'll grow up to be River" may be foreshadowing to it not being the case...and then the timey wimey ball goes nuts.
Rose, Martha and Donna will return.Supposedly, all three are going to be back in some form in the second half of the season. However, out of those three it is only possible for one of them (Martha) to appear, due to Rose being forever in another universe and Donna forever unable to remember the Doctor or she'll die. Some ways to get around this include:
Madame Kovarian is the Eyepatch.Specifically it's a powerful AI that controls whoever wears it. The other characters seen with it are in an extended series of bodyjackings.
Faction Paradox is going to show up and attempt to forcibly recruit RiverHer entire existence is a series of stable time loops, ripe for creating a massive cascade of paradoxes. How can they not take notice?
The bad guys in The God Complex are the NimonsBecause really, how many minotaur-type alien races can there be?
In The Doctor's room in "The God Complex" is... The DoctorBecause really, when he says 'Who else', who could he possibly be referring to?
The Doctor told River his real name...When he was dying from the poisoned lipstick. When River told him his real name, he told her that there was only one time where he could tell her his name. He could only tell someone his real name if he was dying, with no hope of regeneration. Whatever his name was, it convinced Melody/River to save his life by giving up all of her remaining regenerations.
The Doctor just screwed Britain.Take a look at this bit of dialogue from Let's Kill Hitler-
Melody ending up in Leadworth was someone in Madam Kovarian's organisation trying to make it up to Amy and Rory.If they can't raise their daughter, at least they can grow up with her, and they're not the ones it's all aimed at punishing. And her being there isn't exactly necessary to her ultimate mission.
The Doctor has now been replaced with a Ganger.As of the ending of Night Terrors. When he meets back up with Amy and Rory, he says "It's good to be all back together again, in the flesh." In the Flesh. Since they'd split up, he could have had any amount of time to keep the TARDIS to himself, and then come back to pick them up again.
The Doctor did find toddler Melody/Mels/River.At the end of 'A Good Man Goes To War', after the revelation of River Song's identity, he immediatly rushed off saying "I know where your baby is!" But at the beginning of 'Let's Kill Hitler' it seems rather clear that he hasn't. Maybe he was lying initially to ease his companions' fears. Maybe he just thought he knew. But he sounded very convinced- so maybe he did indeed find her, but has been lying. This would explain why in the 'Hitler' prelude he looked so very pained at Amy's, and how he and the girl in the space-suit seem to know each other.
Older!Amy from 'The Girl Who Waited' is Madame Kovarian.We didn't actually see Old!Amy die. We saw her get tranquilised, presumably to go on and be poisoned. But what if she was just taken away? Perhaps through a good dose of time-travel and other weirdness she escaped to start a new life. After 36 years of solitary confinement, her bitterness towards the Doctor reached a climax when he forced her outside the TARDIS. It would explain her vendetta against the Doctor and her interest in Melody/River, who is really her daughter.
The Doctor saw the TARDIS abandoning him in his roomThe TARDIS has always been there for him, and now he's learned she always takes him where he needs to go, as well as them being the last relics of the Time Lords, she's the only thing he has faith in. If she left him forever, think about how crushed he'd be.
The Doctor saw himselfComing from his reaction to the Dream Lord and the way the 10th Doctor went out, can it be anything other than himself, with all his pride, his vanity, the lives that have been lost in his name?
The Doctor saw the end of the universeThe cloister bell was ringing, of course it's the end of the universe.
What the Doctor saw in his room destroyed his self-confidencePerhaps the room showed him as the Valeyard or Dream Lord, or some other version of him giving in to his inner darkness, demanding the faith and worship that he now felt was owed to him. Maybe it showed every one of his failures, from his dead and traumatised companions to the entire races and worlds he's destroyed to the countless people he failed to save. Maybe it was simply the destruction of his TARDIS, the loss of the only constant in his lives, the failure to keep the one thing that he feels makes his existence worthwhile. Whatever it was, it destroyed the part of the Doctor that has resisted giving into despair and loneliness, that saw the good that he does and strives to keep going. Combined with the knowledge that his final death is approaching, he has become suicidal and leaves his companions to their lives so he can tie up any loose ends and then go to his death. Which puts his relationship with River Song in a rather chilling perspective - she thinks she's special and that the Doctor loves her, when the Doctor knows he's already failed her, and is just getting all their "dates" out of the way so he can finally die.
The Doctor saw himself, but...... it wasn't completely surrendered to his dark side, it wasn't the Valeyard. It was only himself. And ONLY him. All left alone, no companions or even the TARDIS. Not even a world to save. Because of two reasons: to make the ending even more heartbreaking, and, after all, what is a Doctor without his patients?
The Doctor saw Amy and Rory (or other companions) dead in the room, or suffering an irreversible Fate Worse Than Death... which leads him to return them to Earth at the end of that episode so it can't happen.
Earth is the second most invaded planet in the universeLook at all of Doctor Who, Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures ... I rest my case.
The Doctor's room contained a preview for the next episode.And his "Who else?" line was a reference to Craig. The thing he fears most is a light-hearted episode coming just before a season finale, because he suffers terribly from Mood Whiplash. That's the real reason he dropped off Amy and Rory - to spare them the cheesiness of him working in a toy store.
The Doctor's room involves River.Who else? First of all, he's afraid of her killing him, and the fact that he watched her die.
The Doctor's room involved his past companionsMost of them, anyway, if "Death of the Doctor" and "Let's Kill Hitler" are anything to go by.
There are alternate time streams all collapsing into each other, destroying each other as they do so.That's why the Doctor was eating an apple and solving a Rubik's Cube, and why there's that quote about Holy Roman Emperor Winston Churchill riding his mammoth into Buckingham Senate from the reporter that will be in episode 13. At the end, one or most of the alternate time stream Doctors will be killed by the Astronaut, but the rest of the alternate-Doctors will merge what little is left of each time stream to form one cohesive whole, with only one (living) Doctor.
Amy and Rory's new house is bigger on the inside.
In the Doctor's room was the ValeyardIn The God Complex, what the Doctor saw in his room was the Valeyard. The thing is, that when he said he was there by mistake, that he had no faith, he was lying. What he does have faith in, is his companions, to keep him from becoming the Valeyard.
Rory will return in most of 11s season finalesLike Jack
The Doctor in "The God Complex" was a fakeHe ate an apple. 11 hates apples.
Madam Kovarian is RiverThe reason she is trying so hard to kill the Doctor, even while calling him a good man, is because she thinks he deserves to finally be allowed to die, as per the minotaur's deaths speech.
The Doctor's adventures from the start of series 6Will be important later.
Kovarian's metal eye-patch is a device that cancels out the effect of the Silence
The songIn no particular order
Kovarian's eyepatch has a picture of the silence on the inside.So she can remember them.
Alfie will become a companion.Maybe not in series 6 or 7, but the writers will definitely come back to him someday.
Steven Moffat has been planning this entire arc since Series 4 of New WhoEvidence:
Madame Kovarian is a female regeneration of the Master.It would explain her obsession with him; maybe the Master went crazy/crazier after John Simm's version regenerated into Frances Barber's version and decided on killing the Doctor instead of flirting with him. She certainly does act a little like the Master's Large Ham self in Closing Time, and the Master's being "a bit hypnotic" could explain how she got the clerics and the Silence on her side. Finally, all that Tick-tock stuff has got to be related to the drumming somehow.
Series 6 will have another Redeemable DalekThere was the lone Dalek During the 9th's tenure, and 10 had Dalek Sec and Dalek Caan. It takes extreme circumstances, but the Daleks have shown that they can change, that they can break out of their usual thought processes. I think one of the Dalek Rangers will turn on his brothers. He will probably then immediately get killed.
The Doctor was doing an alien tribal dance at Amy and Rory's wedding.Specifically, the Barcelonian Sacred Dance of Joy, traditionally performed at weddings by the family of the bride to bring good luck to the newlyweds.
House killed The Rani and/or The Meddling Monk.It wasn't stated what became of those two in the old series, and considering they were too prominent as enemies to simply be killed off as canon fodder, the House managed to trick them with a distress call and got to them.
The Big Bad for Series 5 and/or 6 (Seasons 31 and/or 32)...
The siren from "The Curse of the Black Spot" is the Daughter from the Family of Blood.The Doctor banished her to hiding in reflections. (presumably through space AND time, this is Doctor Who after all) In her mirror universe (explained by The Doctor in "Black Spot") she had a change of heart and began wanting to heal people (atoning for her past actions?), eventually somehow took on the ghostly appearance seen in "Black Spot" and gained access to the ship she uses in that episode. The ship was modified to be able to jump from her mirror world to sailing ships in the 18th century by manipulation of the largest mirror/reflection available, the ocean.(at least initially until other connections to, say, a barrel of water, a medallion, or a crown could be made nearby)
Theories about what the Doctor saw in his room.
The Doctor's whispered message in Let's Kill Hitler
Bishop Octavian's clerics who appeared in The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone are Catholics while Colonel Manton and his clerics are Anglicans.It would explain why Octavian's men have religious ranks while Col. Manton's have regular military ranks, Anglicanism being (albeit only slightly) more secular than Catholicism. It would also explain, without the timey-wimey stuff, why one group is (apparently) good and the other bad; they're different factions, one supports the Doctor and the other doesn't. Also, just to quote from A Good Man Goes to War, "We're the Thin-Fat Gay Anglican Marines."
The eyepatches allows the person wearing it to remember the Silence somehowWhy else would people be wearing them? They all can't be losing their right eyes. Remembering the Silence's presence would help things tremendously. This would mean the Eyepatch Lady is willingly following their orders, however.
The reason why Time has frozen at 5.02pm on 22 April 2011, the exact time of the Doctor's apparent death is because ...The TARDIS refuses to allow the doctor to die.
We will not find out who the mystery voice was who took control of the TARDIS....That will be left unresolved during the season 6 finale and will be saved as the Big Bad for the 50th Anniversary Special.
The Brigadier will rescue the Doctor in the next season.He's Just Hiding.
River didn't die in The Library
In Series 7 the Doctor will be stealthyHe said himself he needs to go into the shadows.
Succesfully Breaking a Fixed Point requires a consensus among all currently living Time LordsHow else would The Doctor have been able to do it to save Adelaide (briefly) without consequence, yet River, who's also a Time Lord, shatter time apart when she tried to do the same to save the Doctor?
River doesn't have enough Time Lord DNA to have all their abilitiesShe just isn't Time Lord enough to defy Fixed Points like the Time Lord Victorious.
The Universe just likes the Doctor.The "You owe me" at the end of End of Time wasn't just a metaphor. Causality likes the Doctor, and does it's best to balance out fixed points and paradoxes for him. But this one was just too big for even it to make sense of.
The next multi-Doctor special will take place on River's birthday.
River has done something much worse than killing the Doctor.I would like to know why she made a Dalek beg for mercy. Now we know she was a psychopath raised by Kovarian and the Silence trained to kill the Doctor and she would kill the Teselecta Doctor. But why would a Dalek beg for mercy from the one who killed their greatest enemy? They're not even that scared of him.
The Doctor will be a father soon.Season 6 as a whole had plenty of parenthood themes, with Melody Pond and all. Then 6b had two episodes which were particularly strong on fatherhood - "Night Terrors" and "Closing Time". And the Doctor is now married. Just imagine what happens when Amy finds out she's a grandmother - she had enough trouble with being the Doctor's mother-in-law.
Amy and Rory are going to die.Based on what Karen Gillan has said:
River Song really is Susan.Moffat has said that we still don't know anything about the truth of River, and that he has something massive planned for the 50th anniversary. A reveal like this would both wrap up River's mysteries, and provide a tie between the anniversary and the beginnings of the series.
The Doctor's answer to the Ultimate Question will be..."Doctor Me!" The following day Stephen Moffat will be found strung up in front of the BBC headquarters as a warning for future scriptwriters.
The Doctor is Rassilon.
Gallifrey will returnNot with the time lords, at least not at first, but it will return
In 2013, the Doctor shall come back.What better way is there to honor the show's fiftieth year than to tie up one of the most famous loose ends in TV history?
The 2012 Christmas special will be based on...
If there's an anniversary series, what would the episodes be?
Season 6's big bad is anti-SilenceThe doctor said the silence are an empire, so "the Silence will fall" means their empire will fall maybe unleashing a Sealed Evil in a Can in the form of season 5& 6's Big Bad
The Empire of Silence probably covers planets other than EarthDid anybody notice how other species talked about the Silence and how they were fearful of them? It could be that they are stranded dominators on Earth. Also, the only reason the other species are able to remember that they ran from the Silence is because the Silence haven't learned how to make them forget and manipulate them or it only works on certain species that includes Humans. Though I wonder what was so terrifying about them? They didn't really do much to Earth.
The company in The Rebel Flesh works for the Sontaran EmpireThink about this for a moment: Sontarans reproduce exclusively via cloning, they cloned Martha Jones in a manner very similar to The Flesh, and those Anti-Acid suits look an awful lot like a Sontaran Battle-Suit...
River Song is an older Amy. Rory is the 12th Doctor.The Doctor and River meet each other in reverse order, with the exception of a few incidents (The second last time River ever saw the Doctor was clearly not his second time meeting her). As Amy gets older and River gets younger (from our perspective), they will gradually come to look exactly alike, revealing River to be Amy from the future. Around that time, Eleven will regenerate, and become Rory, who is actually the 12th Doctor. Therefore, The Doctor and River's relationship aren't just backwards relative to each other, but doubled back on itself into a ridiculously complicated Stable Time Loop. This handily explains why Amy's daughter is able to regenerate. Also makes for some clever Foreshadowing when River tells Rory about when she met the Doctor. From Rory/Twelve's own perspective, it happened not too long ago, and he's just now realizing what effect it had on her. That's why he looks so upset.
The Last Centurion will go on to found an Empire.Specifically, the New Roman Empire mentioned in "The End of the World." This theory isn't mine but an idea of a poster called Necron Lord from this forum.
It was River who...killed The Doctor (or whoever it may actually have been) in "The Impossible Astronaut. Seems likely. She's Amy and Rory's daughter and after firing at the astronaut, she says, "Of course...". Seems like she knows why it didn't drop dead at the very least.
The army in A Good Man Goes to War are actually lead by the SilenceThe Silence, hundreds of years after the Doctor turned all sentient life against them, attempted to do the same to him, sending subtle psychological hints that he is a great warrior. The headless monks are the only ones who sense their presence, since they do not "see" the way normal people see. However since they do not support the army, they only host them, they do not reveal this secret.
Series Six will deconstruct Davies' habit of not knowing when to quit with his pet characters by having River turn out to be Not A Nice Person, Period, or perhaps just an especially persistent admirer of the Doctor's.The Doctor will eventually have to reboot the Randomiser just so she'll go away and people will stop talking about her, already.
William Shakespeare has been trying to warn the Doctor about the Silence ever since they metThe Bard can't remember that he's seen the Silence, of course, but they affect his subconsciousness so deeply that he drafts Hamlet, a play about a prince who repeatedly uses trickery over actual violence, fighting an evil usurper who gains his power by pouring poison in people's ears. Then he feigns a wrist injury and asks the Doctor to transcribe the play's first draft (as mentioned in City of Death) so that he'll pay particular attention to it. The rest is Silence.
River Song's Fate will be retconnedThe doctor had said he rebooted the universe with Big Bang number 2. Who's to say he wasn't Crazy Prepare and while setting up Amy to bring him back he also set things up to save River from her death. This will lead to him meeting the adult River again after meeting the young River for the first/last time thus ensuring himself some kind of happiness.
The Silence are Time LordsExcept they are Time Lords who have mutated as a result of a failed regeneration. Alternatively a Dalek and a time lord got along too well at some point before the Time War.
The Silence in the Library episode's title will be very much accurate, and will be revisited at some pointNot only did Moffat use this episode to introduce (and say goodbye to) River Song as well as intentionally foreshadow some of the themes of series 5 and possibly 6, the episode will turn out to have featured the Silence in a crucial role in the events(or there on a different purpose which will become apparent later) and were using their suggestion powers to manipulate the plot and ensure River Song died. The Eleventh Doctor will eventually return there due to the ongoing storyline of River being a new Time lord, and either rescue her consciousness after the tenth doctor and Donna leave(the flesh comes to mind here as a way of facilitating her return), or possibly even go back on his own time-line to save her, leading to a team up with the tenth doctor (and possibly Donna) against the Silence.
The Eleventh Doctor's companion(s) for Season 7 will be....
Madame Kovarian's eye patch has a picture of a Silent on it.So she doesn't forget.
Room 11 in The God ComplexContains the Doctor. Or rather the Valeyard. "Who else" makes it clear he's a person, and his alternately messianic and guilt-wracked personality makes it quite likely that what he is most afraid of is himself.
The Doctor's room in The God Complex contains his most feared and powerful nemesis:The one person with more power than the universe itself, the one person that caused him more misery than anyone in all time and space, the one person with full reign over his every move: Steven Moffat.
The room the Doctor entered in The God Complex and said "Of course it's you" is Rory's roomThe one person that Rory fears most above all others is the Doctor. His life was relatively normal until the Doctor showed up.
A 50th anniversary celebration episode will have The Doctor retrieving the lost episodes of Doctor Who or Professor XAdmit it, it would be awesome.
The 50th aniversary celebration will be an entire series, with half the series being a crossover... with Inspector Spacetime.The Doctor's new companion will be introduced at the half-way point, where it will be revealed that she is also a companion of the eleventh Inspector, and existing simultaniously in both situations. The multiverse will take one look at the situation, say "Oh, fuck it" and merge the two universes into one. The rest of the series will revolve around the Doctor and the Inspector teaming up with each other (and their past selves) to prevent the universe from completely collapsing in on itself. They'll also receive help from Canton, and Amy's friend Jeff, who have spent the series travelling around the universe together in a NASA-built time machine, under the orders of Richard Nixon.
Amy and Rory will end up in the Two Streams Facility.Stephen Moffat and Karen Gillan have been hinting that one of them is going to die. However, that would be very depressing, and while that wouldn't stop Moffat, he might put in something to make it bittersweet instead. So... maybe Amy or Rory is going to contract some kind of horrible disease that kills very fast. Not Chen-7, obviously, but something similarly lethal. But, before they die, the Doctor will manage to arange things so they can check into Two Streams under this disease instead of Chen-7, and therefore not have to worry about being killed by the Handbots. After all, if they've built something like that they'd probably be able to adapt it for different things. Naturally, both Amy and Rory will go in and live out their lives together, while the Doctor watches. Which would still be pretty depressing, but at least the Doctor and the viewers could know that they had full lives together. So I know this is very unlikely, but still, it could happen.
The Doctor's encounter with the Weeping Angels in New York will be in 1977.New York is "The City that Never Sleeps", there is always the big bright lights, Broadway, Times Square, etc. July 13th, 1977. The New York City Blackout; the night when the whole city went dark... also: The Statue of Liberty.
The Ponds exit will involve one of them dying, but thanks to time travel, it will be a bittersweet ending.Rory will get sent back in time by the Weeping Angels, and the bulk of the episode will cut between Rory in the past trying to get a message to Amy and the Doctor to tell them where he is, and the Doctor and Amy in the present trying to find Rory, and stop the Angels. Rory's portion will end with him believing he's failed to send a message, at which point he will sit down on a bench, looking sad. the Doctor and Amy's portion will end with them defeating the Angels, and discovering an aged Rory. Rory tells Amy he's so happy to see her again, and that he waited for her. They have a tear filled good bye, and Rory whispers some last words to the Doctor before saying goodbye, and passing away. It's a super sad tearjerker featuring Rory's funeral and all the elements of the tragic ending. After it's over the Doctor starts up the TARDIS and tells Amy he's taking her home, she argues that with her husband dead, and her daughter gone she has no reason to go home, and might as well stay on the TARDIS for the rest of her days. The Doctor tries to comfort her, telling her that this is a blessing, because they know Rory lives to be very old, and never dies in any alien invasions (with the Doctor commenting that there's been a few between then and now.) Amy asks what good it is knowing he grows old if she can't grow old with him. The Doctor tells her no one ever said she couldn't, and opens the TARDIS doors to reveal that he's brought her back in time to where Rory was sitting on the bench. He tells her about a house, and money waiting for them, or will be waiting once he goes back and sets it up. Amy thanks him and then realizes, since Rory has to live out the rest of his days in this time period, it means neither of them can travel in the TARDIS anymore. She chooses to stick with Rory, and the Doctor says goodbye repeating the stuff from the Big Bang ("you won't need your imaginary friend anymore. Live well, love Rory, etc...) adding that they should avoid messing with history too much. Amy says goodbye, asking that he let River know when they are so she can visit. Amy departs and soon the Doctor is off on another adventure.
The Angels will somehow turn other statues into Angels, including the Statue of Liberty.The Moff already provided plenty of Paranoia Fuel when he implied in Blink thhat any statue could be a Weeping Angel, so what better than to outright confirm it? Besides, what other reason would they have for invading New York other than the giant statue there?
The Daleks are eventually going to remember The DoctorThey fought in the Time War and are Daleks, they have contingencies for everything (also, fear of the Doctor is probably literally in their DNA at this point). Worth noting is that Dalek equipment keyed to Dalek DNA will accept his testimony as to an individual's Dalekness instead; as the machines in question are nonsapient and not on their network, they'll probably come across scattered data like that during routine maintenance and piece it together. Time travel may also be involved (a Dalek from before the mindwipe joining the post-wipe network).
Erasing the Doctor from the Daleks' memory is going to backfire.Think about it-the Doctor is the only known being who they fear, and his reputation is what prevents them from immediate extermination. Now that he's an Unperson to them? Yeah, the Doctor is kind of screwed.
Amy has been replaced again, or is a deep cover puppet.When The Doctor met the Dalek decoy he mentioned her hands being cold. Almost immediately after, an employee at the modeling company commented that Amy looked pale. Either she's been replaced by another ganger/decoy, or is an unactivated Dalek.
The Song "Saying Goodbye" from The Muppets Take Manhattan will play in "The Angels Take Manhattan"The episode is where Amy and Rory leave, not only that but it's said to be a Tear Jerker, combined with the fact that the title of the episode is a reference to said movie it would make sense that the song (or a cover) would play in the episode.
Solomon is Sabalom GlitzYeah, this is pretty far out there, but it's a neat little thought I had during "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship". Basically, Sabalom's cons started getting more and more extreme after he met the Doctor for the last time. Eventually, he started selling humans to make more money. And at some point in his old age, he forgot his actual name and started using one that sounded vaguely similar.
The universe wants more Time Lords.In the last few seasons, The Doctor has made quite a habit of getting himself cloned/duplicated/etc.:
The flickering lightsSome people have pointed out that each episode so far has had the lights flickering at some point. In "Asylum", the lightbulbs around Amy's dressing table flicker; in "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" there's the problem with the fixture; and in "A Town Called Mercy" there's lingering shots on flickering lamp-posts. Now, some have connected this to the Weeping Angels finale, but I think it also goes further back, and connects with the Doctor being exposed to nanogenes, because the nanogenes in "The Empty Child"/"The Doctor Dances" let the little boy manipulate electronics. If the lights thing continues after the Angels (and why shouldn't it? Every Angels story has involved flickering lights) then it may be another technique to show how the Doctor is being affected.
Melody in ManhattanWe know that Melody Pond regenerated in 1970 in NYC. Sometime in the 1980s she shows up in Leadworth. She might be in Manhattan for the events of "The Angels Take Manhattan". Possibly she regenerates into Mels in this episode...
The Doctor is slowly being forgotten by everyoneAs we saw in Asylum of the Daleks, Oswin wiped out the Daleks memory and records of the Doctor. But it, or something similar, is spreading. Solomon's computer had no idea who he was - which shouldn't be affected by the Dalek's mindwipe, and seeing as the Doctor gets around a bit, he should be on there. Even in A Town Called Mercy he was forgotten about by the town. Which leads into the question that ended the last series, 'Doctor who?'. The Doctor is going to be forgotten about by everyone, including his companions, and as he's been relying on his reputation a lot recently, he's gonna find things tough.
In "The Power of Three", Bessie will returnThe only way he would have to stay in their lives, is if his transportation was taken away. If UNIT took away the TARDIS then they would probably give him Bessie in return, at least temporarily.
In "The Power of Three" the Doctor will lose functionality in one of his heartsHe's seen waking up and touching/grabbing one side of his chest. Later on he's seen staggering around like Ten when the Carrionite stopped one of his hearts. Something will happen and he has to rely on one heart.
One day, the Doctor will come back too late for Amy and Rory.And that's why they'll leave. It's an idea that's popped up a bit since they've joined the show; in The Eleventh Hour, when he came back twelve years later than he said, and in The Girl Who Waited, of course. He'll either come back after they've died, or - less depressingly - long enough after that they're still alive, but have got used to life without him, and just don't want to travel with him anymore. Since there are Weeping Angels in their final episode, and Moffat has been hinting that someone is going to die, there's a good chance they'll get sent back in time, and The Doctor will land a decade or two later than he was meant to when he goes to pick them up. Or it may happen after everyone is safe, and he may even do it deliberately (there was that suspicion from Amy in Dinosaurs on a Spaceship that he was trying to wean them off him, and the Doctor's reaction implied she was right), if there's a particularly close shave in their last episode.
Frobisher the Penguin will appear at some point in the futureWe've had a full on Canon Immigrant with Kate Stewart, and if anyone else from the expanded universe shows up, Frobisher would be a likely candiate due to his popularity, having featured in the comics, novels and Big Finish.
We haven't heard the last of the ShakriTheir motives were ill-explained, we only saw one of their propaganda AI's rather than the Shakri themselves, and it's almost certain that the actual Shakri responsible are still alive, probably not having been on the ship that exploded (so, they will likely try again, or try to take out the Doctor), and they have ties to Gallifrey. They are definitely going to appear again, either in the season finale or next season.
Series 7 will end with a wedding.Why break tradition?
The Shakri will be the Big Bad of the 50th anniversary special(s)......and will be played by all the surviving actors who preceded Matt Smith in the role of the Doctor. In "The Power of Three", the Shakri's cubes began their countdown at seven and we learn that the Shakri travel in groups of seven. Interestingly, there are seven Doctor actors still with us (not counting Smith). Both Tom Baker and Sylvester McCoy have expressed interest in making an appearance on the show as a villain, and the chance to return to the show in a different, non-Doctor role may entice the indifferent or reluctant actors like Peter Davison or Christopher Eccleston to come back.
Something is up with the VortexThe Time Vortex has been getting more stormy each episode, which may mean that it is somehow linked to what is to come.
The Doctor is slowly turning into a Dalek puppet over the course of the seasonHe's not invulnerable to the Dalek nanovirus just because he's a Time Lord; but it does mean his immune system is better and he can fight them off more slowly. This will slowly make the Doctor darker and angrier throughout the season until he realizes what's going on.
The Doctor's greatest fear, as seen in The God Complex......Is himself. Not only does he loathe what he is, he is terrified at the thought of what he could be. You thought the Time Lord Victorious was bad? That was just the tip of the iceberg.
Clara......is Harry Watson's ex-wife, as shown in "A Study In Pink". "Shot in the dark, good one though."
Jenna Louise Coleman will play multiple characters.So far we've seen Oswin, we know Clara is a different person, one who will be picked up in Victorian London. We've heard reports that in her first regular episode she's wearing modern clothes and makes off hand remarks about twitter. Further there are set pictures of her with River Song level curly hair, and back in Victorian era clothing. Why the drastic changes? Because she's not always Clara. We'll meet Clara in the Christmas episode, and then she'll die like Oswin, or something will prevent her from coming along. The Doctor will pop into modern day and meet Jenna Louise Coleman as a new character, and be utterly confused. Eventually she'll die or be trapped, or he'll let her be, and pop off like he did some times with Amy and Rory, he'll go to another time and bam, Jenna Louise Coleman again. How and why this woman keeps re-appearing as different people will be the core mystery for the rest of the series.
The Order of the Silence and the being which destroyed the Tardis are separate entities.The entity in Series 5 was attempting to cause a literal silence (as shown at the ends of Vampires in Venice and The Pandorica Opens) while the Order is trying to prevent a more metaphorical silence. If the Pandorica plot was designed to force the Doctor to repair the universe by exiling himself from it, that just brings up more problems: Destroying the entire universe to get rid of the Doctor has so many potential points of failure- such as the Fossil Dalek killing him before he could reboot reality- that it's just not feasible. Also, if the Order could blow up the Tardis at will, then they could just detonate it with him on board. In addition, the voice which announced the falling of silence in series 5 was never used by any of the Silents or their agents in the Order's appearances, nor has the Order ever actually taken credit for those events.
If this is all part of Moffat's Masterplan then the ultimate twist in the Silence's story would be that their whole goal- to prevent the Doctor from causing the Silence to fall- was based on a false premise, and their real enemy is the Omnicidal Maniac who already succeeded in breaking the universe once. Perhaps it's using them, a fitting ironical fate for the antagonists set up as the show's ultimate Long Game playing Man Behind the Man. But then again, the Silence seem to have one hell of a Complexity Addiction in Series 6, as their whole plot to forge River into the Doctor's murderer seemed entirely superflous when in the end, they simply had the space suit do all the work for her. That leads into the final part of this WMG:
If this theory is proven incorrect without the above dichotomy being explained, it can only be because Moffat hadn't decided on the identity and motivation of the Silence until after he'd written Season 5.
The real reason the Doctor can't bring Amy and Rory back from '30s-40s Manhattan is...In the 1940s, Rory will be drafted into the US Armed Forces and is present at Normandy as a field medic, where he saves the life of a British lieutenant Alastair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, years before he becomes The Brigadier and meets the Doctor. Toward the end of WWII, he'll meet Dr. Constatine, Nancy and Jamie(from "The Empty Child"/"The Doctor Dances"), as well as some of the orphans Nancy protected. This is where Andrew comes from.
At some point soon after the 50th Anniversary, The Doctor's companions will be Luke & Sky Smith and a Regeneration of Susan Foreman
The reason the Doctor has been running from "the question" is because...
The "Doctor's greatest secret", to be revealed in the Series 7 finale is...
Amy and Rory created or inspired the show.
The Great Intelligence is possessing Shalka!DoctorHe accidentally teleported into this universe and being weakened by the trip, the Great Intelligence was able to control him. After getting unpossesed he'll go mad from the revelation of the extinction of the time lords , and his own inability to return to his own universe, and eventually become the crazy doctor who eventually regenerates into the Valeyard. How would that be for Continuity Porn?
The Woman In The ShopThat is, the one who gave Clara Oswald the Doctor's phone number - "the best help-line in the universe". It's...
The silence are the good guys
Clara is the true daughter of the TARDISWell, more accurately, fragments of the TARDIS' matrix scattered throughout various timelines, and all becoming Clara. Specifically, they scattered when the TARDIS exploded and destroyed all the stars, it left something behind that was retained when the universe was rewritten, and that something is Clara.
The "sliver of ice" in the Doctor's heart is The Great Intelligence, who will play a major role in either the finale or 50th anniversary specialDuring the Christmas special "Snowmen," the Doctor is nearly frozen to death by The Great Intelligence, who was again revealed to be the villain at the end of the following episode, "The Bells of St. John." Later, during the episode "Hide," Clara is warned by a psychic not to trust the Doctor, because he has a "sliver of ice in his heart." In future episodes we'll learn that The Great Intelligence transferred part of itself inside the Doctor, and is trying to take control.
A terrible conclusion can be drawn from the mention of the Valeyard, the Dcotor's spending of regeneration energy on things besides his regeneration and the John Hurt Doctor being the Real Ninth Doctor.Oh, come on, do the maths. The Valeyard is the Twelve-and-a-halfth Doctor. The Doctor may not have a whole number of regenerations left. And if there's a secret incarnation between the McGann and Eccleston Doctors, then the Smith Doctor is Twelfth. The Doctor has approximately one half of a regeneration left. As the timeline currently stands, the final Doctor is the Valeyard, a being of darkness and evil. The personification of the Doctor's darkness, and of his single worst trait; a trait existing in manageable amounts at any one time but, via time travel, already spread too thickly across time and space - hubris. The battle of Trenzalore, where the Doctor will die, will be a victory.
The "Forgotten Doctor" is a resurrection of the "Other" concept from the end of the classic seriesDespite the popular theory that John Hurt's Doctor is the "real 9th doctor" who fought in and ended the time war, this is extremely at odds with the actions and words of 9, 10, and 11 who have all faced and accepted their bloody role in ending the war by mass genocide, not to mention all the other atrocities in said war like the Fall of Arcadia and the later aftershocks like the return of the Daleks and the Time Lords. Therefore it is highly unlikely that the Forgotten Doctor's crime was his ending the time war as the Doctor has long since come to terms with this action, while utterly disowning John Hurt's incarnation for what he did. Also the "dark secret" of the Doctor and his true identity has been teased since the old series, particularly during the 7th Doctor's run which saw him momentarily freak out in Silver Nemesis when the villain taunted him with knowledge of his true identity. Therefore it is entirely possible that this forgotten incarnation predates the time war completely, and may even be the Doctor's original incarnation who has his "true name" rather than the name "Doctor" because he completely failed to live up to the name he chose for himself. My theory is that this new Doctor is an updated version of the "Other" who was heavily hinted at in the last seasons of Classic Who, a crucial figure in time lord history next to Rassilon and Omega who helped create Time Lord society and establish Time Lord dominance over history, and who likely did some truly evil shit to do so, maybe in the form of exterminating all competition and resistance during early universe history, possibly during some "First Time War" which he did for "peace and sanity" (given that the Time Lord's competition during the Dark times included entities like Fenric, the Great Vampires, maybe even The Beast and god knows how many Eldritch Abominations if you take the EU into account) but utterly at odds with the title he chose for himself as it undoubtedly caused near infinite innocent deaths.
Hurt!Doctor is between 8 & 9.If Hurt!Doctor was the one who ended the Time War, then 8 must have regenerated into him. Feeling remorse over what he'd done, Hurt!Doctor lived alone for God knows how long before forcing himself to regenerate into 9. With this fresh, new body, 9 saw fit to claim the title again—yet still feels the weight of his guilt, so he dresses in dark clothes. Trying to regain his old glory, 9 dressed as 8 for a while (as seen in Clive's conspiracy theory stuff in "Rose", where he's the only incarnation shown) before ditching that and continuing the Doctor tradition of having a unique outfit.
The Doctor did not "save" River out of love, friendship or kindness.He did it purely as a way to get around the prophecy of the Silence. River claims that it took a long time, but she finally persuaded the Doctor to tell her his name. In fact, the Doctor intended to, but not until right before she went to the Library. Soon before then, he introduced her to the Paternoster Gang and showed them all how to have their temporal conference call. He then took River to Darillion, told her his name, and gave her a Sonic Screwdriver with the neural relay in it, deliberately leading her to her death and the storage of her data ghost. He used the Paternoster Gang as bait knowing that when they realized they were being hunted they'd contact River, and that River would get her ghost to Trenzalore where the First Question could be answered without giving anyone else access to his real name - this is why he refused to answer even with his friends' lives at stake. This done, he admits that leaving River as a half-alive remnant was not a kind thing to do and allows her to pass on. At a much later date, he'll leave the River Song grave secret entrance for his earlier self to use. None of this is a particularly heroic thing to do, but if the Doctor's real name can be used to access his greatest secret, one that he's determined shall never be revealed, he may just go to these great lengths and cruel acts for what he sees as a greater good. And it wouldn't be the first time that the Doctor has manipulated friends or companions in a cruel way.
The Name of the Doctor is not the last time we will see RiverWhile some see "The Name of the Doctor" as a heartfelt and effective way to end a long-running character, it does not mean that River is gone forever. Quite the contrary. This still leaves one thing open: River still needs to receive the screwdriver BEFORE the library. And before you say it can be assumed this happened off screen... the Doctor as we have seen him has never had that exact model. We recently saw in "The Cold War" that it DOES have a red setting (implying it is getting closer), it still lacks the trigger-looking feature seen in the Library two-parter. Therefore, the 11th Doctor will go out in a way similar to the Tenth Doctor as he will visit her one last time to give her the screwdriver, tying up every plotline regarding River and giving Alex Kingston and the character a good send off (in the 50th or The Christmas Special) and giving the 12th Doctor the chance to get a new screwdriver.
The Doctor will receive a new set of regenerations via a LoomI remember there was some idea that the Doctor was the reincarnation of an early Time Lord called The Other. Perhaps the Looms will make a comeback, not as something that lets the Time Lords reproduce, but some other capacity. However, this new Doctor will be considered a separate Doctor than the others. He'll still be the Doctor, but some technicality would make him the new First Doctor, rather than a true Fourteenth.
Post 50th Speculation
Gallifrey dies again.Seriously. Think about it. 2.47 billion children is all very sweet and all, but we're forgetting something: those children were Gallifreyan children, destined to grow up on Gallifrey under the Gallifreyan system. Since the late 2nd Doctor's era, the viewers have been gradually clued in, bit by bit, to the fact that Gallifrey is an awful, awful place - or rather, that it's quite a beautiful place which had the bad luck to be populated by the Time Lords, arguably the worst race in the entire galaxy. Decadent, corrupt, and rotten to the core - and that was BEFORE the war drove them so crazy that Rassilon's eventual endgame plan involved OMNICIDE. By the last day of the war - the day in which Gallifrey is currently suspended - the Time Lords were the one and only race in existence terrifying enough to make David Tennant's Doctor pick up a gun. Those children weren't saved. Their physical death has been postponed, but one way or another, Gallifrey has to die. There's more-or-less no other way this can end. Not so long as the Time Lords remain on the planet, anyway. You steal them away from one war, and how long do you REALLY think it will be before Rassilon and his chums start another one? Steal them away from that one too, and the corrupt political, legal and educational systems will sooner or later birth another Rassilon, and another one after that, and another one after that. The Doctor has had a self-deluded, romanticised view of Gallifrey ever since he was forced to blow it out of the sky to end the evil Final Solution campaign of the Time Lords, and the Time War with it. That's something he needs to get over. I'm not nearly as good a writer as many of the BBC staff, but the way I see it, there's only one satisfying way to bring closure to this whole story arc: The Thirteenth Doctor will find Gallifrey, and release it from stasis, and then be forced to confront the reality of just what exactly he's done: Not saved anyone, simply prolonged their suffering. You can save a species from natural disasters. You can save a species from another species. You can't save a species from itself. With no better options available to him, the Doctor will kill Gallifrey. Again. But this time, he understands. This time, he CAN'T delude himself. He KNOWS there was no alternative, not when you're dealing with a race like the Time Lords. So this time, he understands that he has nothing to atone for. He can move on. He can accept reality as it is, and he can heal. Doctor, heal thyself. Character development (and story arc) complete. Boom.
What the Doctor saw in the Untempered Schism......were the beginnings of the calculations needed to save Gallifrey. The Doctor basically did the same trick as Rassilon and the Master, sending a message to himself back in his youth. The out-of-sync timelines left the memory as imperfect, perhaps showing him his involvement in Gallifrey's destruction, which would've certainly sent him running. However, over time he discovered that hidden in that nightmarish vision were the steps needed to avoid it. Again, the out-of-sync timelines prevent him from truly recalling it until the Eleventh Doctor's time, but the memories came and went enough that he was able to move things along at the right stages and make sure his every regeneration up to the Twelfth Doctor was present for the big event.
Grand Unifying Guess for The Doctor, and all his incarnations (ALL OF THEM)Unifying theory: For the incarnations of the Doctor Count with me, kids: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, WAR, 9, 10, Metacrisis 10, 11, 12. The Watcher, The Valeyard, The Dream Lord, The Curator “Non-canon”: Dr. Who (Peter Cushing), The Shalka Doctor (Richard E. Grant) Now: The Time War has been confirmed to be the cause of Three 8th Doctors in Zagreus. The three alternate timelines: The Tv Show/Big Finish, The Comics, and The Novels. Now, roll with me: We have Clara entering the timestream to save the Doctor. Scattering her. The Great Intelligence entered. And the Doctor. We have several characters who look identical to versions of the Doctor. Salamander (2), Maxil (6), John Frobisher/Lucius Caecilius (12) The Curator (4) What if they are ALL from The Doctor entering his own Time Stream?! The Curator could ALSO be a version of The Watcher, a mysterious future incarnation that appears to the 4th and merges with him to become the 5th. The Curator is between 11 and 12. AND: Since the Intelligence entered... what if The Shalka Doctor is Dr. Simeon COMBINED with the Doctor? Or combined with one of the other two 8th Doctors? OR a copy of a young 1st Doctor? OR The Shalka Doctor could be the War Doctor, still young as Night of the Doctor showed us. NOW. The Peter Cushing Doctor. He is human. It's called TARDIS. Not THE Tardis. And has gone on two of the adventures the prime universe one has done. The Daleks, and The Dalek Invasion of Earth. WHAT IF. This guy is from Pete's World. He suffered a Metacrisis with another Time Lord and got the knowledge of their tech. The First Question was imprinted, causing him to become Dr. Who. Literally. So, Metacrisis is human too. And he's with Rose in Pete's World. What if Dr. Who is there and they meet? Metacrisis and Rose would team up with a version of The First Doctor, in a primitive, but working TARDIS. For fun: The Doctor Who Anime features Daleks, Davros, Cybermen, Sontarans, The Third Doctor, The Roger Delgado AND Ainely Master's. Plus Sutekh being released before he almost was in the 4th Doctor's Time. This was in fact, crazy shit occurring due to the Time War.
The Twelfth Doctor is on his way home when we see him in "The Day Of The Doctor".It's the easiest way for the Doctor to go home, and it explains why he isn't helping his past incarnations before the climax. The calculations were also finished with the Eleventh Doctor. So the Twelfth Doctor, hypothetically, did not 'need' to be there with his past.
The Doctor's Fate post-The Time Of The DoctorThis one's going to be in spoilers as it contains currently unconfirmed rumors from the Christmas Special. And the more we learn, they may just be true. If current rumors are to be believed, then this Christmas, we'll discover that the Eleventh Doctor is in reality not the Eleventh Doctor. (Yes, I realize we already know this because of The War Doctor, but that's not what I mean.) Current rumors suggest that the Meta-Crisis Tenth Doctor counts as a regeneration; this, in turn, would imply that Eleven is officially the Thirteenth Doctor. And if you remember correctly, Time Lords can only regenerate 12 times. Making the Thirteenth Doctor the last. The rumors also suggest that Eleven will die at some point during a hundreds-of-years long war on Trenzalore. So, if this is true, how does the man WE know as the Twelfth Doctor (you know, Peter Capaldi), figure into this? We clearly see Twelve show up and help the rest of the Doctor's incarnations freeze Gallifrey. So, clearly, The Doctor has to survive, right? Well...think about this. "The Doctor" is a name that the man we know as such chose. It's a title, a promise he made. So why can't someone else carry that promise? This is my theory. Eleven dies. No avoiding that, Trenzalore is where it happens. Silence falls. But in the midst of all that, The Doctor discovers another Time Lord. Somehow this man managed to escape the Time War. How, IDK, Moffat can figure that out. But this man witnesses the man fight in this war (or survive, or however Eleven does things now). He sees this man's legacy and what it can cause. He's in awe. Eleven befriends him. They fight together. Eleven realizes this is it for him, so he gets a crazy idea. What if this kid could be The Doctor? After all, it's just a title, right? No reason another man could take it. But The Doctor wouldn't give anyone the title. This guy has to earn it. And he does. Just as he recieves it, he's attacked and regenerates into Capaldi!Doctor. This would make The Doctor a true Legacy Character. How else would Clara not have seen future incarnations of The Doctor when she hopped into his time stream? If this does turn out to be true, then technically, Capaldi! Doctor would be the Second First Doctor, as well as the Twelfth.
The Twelfth Doctor will walk past a fez without reacting to it....and for Clara, remembering her comment in The Day of the Doctor, this will be the instant she realizes that this is no longer her Doctor, the one she had gotten to know so well in their time together.
