Doctor Who News

The First image for Doctor Who's Christmas episode (The Time of the Doctor) has been revealed.  Now that the 50th anniversary is done I expect promotion for the Xmas episode to be pretty full on.

‘Orbiting a quiet backwater planet, the massed forces of the universe’s deadliest species gather, drawn to a mysterious message that echoes out to the stars - and amongst them, the Doctor.

Rescuing Clara from a family Christmas dinner, the Time Lord and his best friend must learn what this enigmatic signal means for his own fate and that of the universe.’ (taken from BBC)

From the picture it is clear that the cybermen and The Silence are back in action and of course we know that Matt Smith will be leaving the role and Capaldi stepping in.  How that exchange will take place remains a mystery (as expected.)

Also, Orla Brady has been cast in the episode as someone from the Doctor's past.  Some people seem to think that Brady may be taking over as the Doctor's Assistant and that she would be a better match for Capaldi's Doctor than the current assistant, Clara, played by Jenna Coleman.  I kind of see where they are coming from but I doubt that will happen, but you never know what Moffat has up his sleeve and at this point nothing would really surprise me.  

ETA: If you zoom in and focus on the fire between The Doctor and Cara you will see Peter Capaldi stareing back at you!
