Gotta keep the week early tradition up
Clara is summoned to an impossible conference call, alerting her that the deadly Whisper Men are closing in on Vastra, Jenny and Strax. Someone is kidnapping the Doctorís friends, leading him toward the one place in all of time and space that he should never go. Itís a deadly trap that threatens to unravel his past, present and future...

This is looking good. I like that the next time trailer didn't give too much away.....

The TV trailer gives quite a bit away though, still an excellent trailer though.

I think that's the best prequel yet, it's different to what they've done before but it works so well.

This is the better one though. The OP actually bothered to keep the same format and include the trailers etc. The other one should be merged with this one.

Will everybody be disappointed if the Doctor's name is something as simple as 'Bob'?

Yea could be. She looks like she's definitely trying to look like one of the 3rd doctor's companions anyway. Which interests me very much

I have been kind of expecting it for a few weeks now to be honest.

And now we have three threads running concurrently and it is a mess. All because some people want the dubious kudos of starting an episode thread. Time for the mods to step in and start them I think. This is exactly what people said would happen.

Totally agree. Nothing more than ego boosting. Very strange.

My prediction for next week's episode is that it will be incredibly rushed, a bit insane and we will all be left thinking "what the hell just happened?"...but it will be incredibly entertaining nevertheless.

Oh and someone merge the three identical threads please.
I don't mind them being created a week early so we can round-up all the previews and reviews, but we really don't need three of them.

I only made this because the other one was very official or had any previews or trailers. And the other one was made a few minutes after this so he didn't know this one was made

So from the SFX preview, sounds like the River rumour I shared was right.....

I was referring to the ridiculous rush to be the one to make the thread. Especially when there was one already. Certainly not personal against you. More about the way this weekly thread is going.

Official? It is a forum, not BBC approved.

By official i mean in the same concept every other episode thread was like before. The other one had the name The Name Of The Doctor 7pm 18 may and inside had the cast list, not really a episode thread where people can get info about the episode

At least Sora kept to the recognisable format of the episode discussion threads, Fez started the week early tradition with good intentions, and I continued them with those same intentions; to have a more complete discussion of the episode prior to during and after transmission, including all previews reviews trailers etc in preference to having 2 separate threads.

Nothing to do with ego boosting, and I feel insulted at the suggestion; I and some others agreed with Fez's suggestion of having an early thread. I do agree about this being out of hand however. IMO the mods should merge the other 2 threads with this one, as the thread title is in the same format as the usual discussion thread titles and cannot easily be mistaken. If the mods would be wiling to start threads 1 week early with a link to trailers, the usual posters will post review links etc and there should be no more confusion.

The other thread had no previews, etc, it turned into a silly debacle, all because that poster wanted to be firsthand started it before the previous ep aired. This thread follows the standard set by the crimson horror and all the other pinned episode ones.

Now can we stop going off topic about it all. Thanks.
