Should we change the title of the first S8 episode? I know we're trying to keep in line with Who, but should we really lose "Twelfth Knight"?

"Twelfth Knight" would have been a perfect mirror of DW's rumoured/working title "The Twelfth Keeper", but since Moffat went with "Deep Breath", we have to come up with something fitting as a parody/pastiche. Sometimes in writing you must Kill Your Darlings. That's not to say we have to stick with "Shallow Breathing" if a better inspiration strikes* (same goes for all the titles based on the rumoured ones for Series 8). Part of the fun of IS is seeing what we can create within the framework of DW.

  • For instance, "Big Gulp" was one that occurred to me, but since 7-11 failed to expand in the UK, that brand reference doesn't quite work. Inspector Spacetime is a British Series, after all.

We've had titles that have deviated wildly from the real episodes before. "The Inspector's Mad Holiday", for example.

Good point. If IS Series 8 has one exception, it probably won't muddle the overall parody. (And there might be an opportunity later to make a joke about the "Knight Watch" (http://madmanwithabooth.wikia.com/wiki/File:InfinityKnightWatch.png) that appeared in the background of Community's InSpecTiCon episode.)

Just as none of the DW titles are official, all the of the IS ones are tentative and open to further suggestions. Thanks,

Alright, so, should we make a forum to come up with IS recaps and pick out who makes which ones?

Yeah, this should work though.

Actually, the forum already exists: http://inspectorspacetime.proboards.com/
