Think Peter C's first story will be called 'The Twelfth Man' and will involve Lords, the Ashes and an Auton attempt to undermine British Society using a cricket-related scheme. There will be a sequel of sorts in his second series called 'The Umpire Strikes back'.

Nah...the above posts are better!

As mentioned every time this comes up, Big Finish have already had Andrew Sachs play Adric as an elderly sex pest. http://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/...ime-forgot-276

Episode one is going to be called "About F***ing Time" and takes place during the missing 16 months between the end of season 7 and the beginning of season 8.

The Doctor and Clara are trapped in 2013, and have to investigate why his modern-day supporters are so lacklustre that they can't even be bothered to write a single letter of complaint to the BBC about his TV show being put on hiatus for a year and a half.

The Doctor realises his only chance is to get back to 1985 when he had real fans who knew how to organise an angry letter-writing campaign and actually saved his show from cancellation.

That's what I've heard anyway

Series Eight, Part One

E1 - "Trailer for a Trailer" - The first episode slot of the new series features a 40 minute introduction from Steven Moffat, teasing the release of an epic, five minute long trailer, promoting the rest of the first half of the series.

E2 - "The Trailer" - The second week features a compilation of trailers entwined with the feature-length trailer released the previous week.

E3 - "50th Anniversary Bonus Episode" - Caving to fan pressure, the third episode is devoted to bringing back David Tennant, Matt Smith & John Hurt for a 50 minute reunion with Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy. Nothing is accomplished and the fans are displeased.

E4 - "Paul McGann is Back" - The fourth episode of the month sees the return of the Eight Doctor. Hardcore fans of the one-time screen Doctor are delighted by the 45 minutes devoted to McGann running around a tree and occasionally stopping for breath. Although some critics are concerned that the special episode was produced purely as fan service.

E5 - "Who is.. oh, it's Peter Capaldi" - The final episode of the first part of the series finally sees Peter Capaldi's first outing as the Twelfth Doctor. However, the episode itself only lasts 10 minutes, during which time Clara is replaced by Donna because it's 'what the fans want' and the rest of the episode slot is devoted to a 35 minute preview of the Christmas Special.

E6 - Christmas Special - "Deja Vu" - Not to be tied down by the fact the first 35 minutes of the special had been ruined for them three months earlier, millions of viewers tune in for Capaldi's first Christmas Special. Unfortunately, many are shocked to see Donna killed off in a surprise twist after Moffat learned a number of fans were not pleased with her return.

Series Eight, Part Two

E7 - "Unlucky for some" - Having read on the Internet that not everybody thought Peter Capaldi was up to running down a corridor, the first episode of the second half draws massive viewing figures as the Twelfth Doctor suddenly regenerates having fallen down a set of stairs. The Thirteenth Doctor, played by Ricky Gervais, is met with critical acclaim. The opening episode closes with a 15 minute preview of the rest of the series.

E8 - "A Universe of Controversy" - Determined to give the show a new edge, Moffat allows Gervais to write his own lines for The Doctor, prompting thousands of complaints to the BBC, insisting that Gervais' portrayal is insulting to minority groups dotted around the country. Episode eight would later feature heavily on Points of View.

E9 - "The 13 Doctors" - Pre-empting the negative response to Gervais' Doctor, Moffat had already planned a special episode, reuniting all surviving Doctors - apart from Christopher Eccleston, who was preparing for a role in Star Wars Episode 7. Hartnell, Troughton and Pertwee appeared in special CGI roles - which would be panned by fans for their technical inaccuracies, including the way Hartnell's wig moved in the wind. Nevertheless, the episode is met with critical acclaim.

E10 - "Remember this?" - To follow up the special reunion episode, Moffat commisions Mark Gatiss to piece together a clip show, reminding audiences that the current production team hasn't forgotton everything about the Classic Series. A number of newer fans don't have a clue what's going on and take to Twitter in protest. #SaveTheShow

E11 - "Remember me?" - Determined to salvage his reputation amoungst Doctor Who fans, Neil Cross pens episode 11 - introducing Karl Pilkington as The Doctor's latest companion as the new TARDIS team travels the Earth, mixing with other cultures. Many fans are concerned that the show is starting to focus too much on Earth when The Doctor is capable of travelling throughout all of time and space.

E12 - "The Eurovision Song Contest" - Eurovision interrupts the schedule. The BBC run daily trailers for the finale instead. Unfortunately, somebody makes a mess of it and the final few minutes of the finale are leaked, live on BBC One.

E13 - "The End" - At the end of his tenure, Moffat is determined to make his mark on the show. Having read on the Internet that he has ignored the Classic Series, despite his continued attempts to bring back Classic Doctors and the acclaimed Gatiss Clip Show, Moffat figures out the one thing which could prove the contrary to be accurate. After losing Karl in a battle with The Daleks, The Doctor is shot and killed by Dalek Puppet Helen Mirran. Staying true to the established regeneration cycle, he is unable to regenerate and the The Doctor dies for good. His body is quite clearly vapourised so leave the viewer in no doubt.

Although Doctor Who is taken off the air, the Internet rejoices after a series filled with memorable moments, shocking twists and heaps of delicious fan-service. Years later, Christopher Eccleston would reveal his regret at not returning for the 13 Doctors special.

Okay, I was bored, alright?

Get bored any time you like, CD93.

Episode 4 in particular could well be a minimalist avant-garde classic.

Aired only after the watershed. No, a shed's not big enough for Adric. Air only after the waterhouse.

Twelfth Night - The Doctor lands on a planet of perpetual night (due to budget cuts). A hilarious 45mins of the Doctor stumbling around in the dark going "Where's the f***ing light switch!" before falling down a gaping plot hole.

Twelve Lords a Leaping - The Doctor awakes one day to find himself unable to stop jumping. Making psychic contact with his past selves, he discovers they to are simarly afflicted. Could this be the work of the great Cosmic Flea? The Doctor must hop to the mythical planet of Woodinwales to find a cure but immediatley leaps in to a waiting plot hole.

Doctors 12 - The Doctor must call together 11 of his greatest allies to rip off a movie.... I mean a Galactic Casino to punish the owner for helping to fund a universal revival of the stage play Bruce Forysth: Comedic Genius.

12 Angry Doctors - The Doctor materialises in a Court room that looks strangely familiar. Has he been here before? A man in an appalling multi-coloured coat is on trial and the Doctor finds himself on the jury. He immediately thinks the man is guilty and pushes him down a handy nearby plot hole.

Planet of the Filler - The Doctor and Clara run around the planet Quarryinwales for 45 minutes after the TARDIS falls down a plot hole when materialising. Not much happens.

Collectibles of the Damned - An evil government funded broadcaster is bleeding a planet dry by constantly releasing new figures from one of it's most popular programs. Pestilence and Famine stalk the land. Children lie in hospital beds on the brink of starvation as another retail outlet is built on the planet Reallyc'rdiff's last remaining farm. The Doctor arrives to save the day but spends 40 mins trying to find the special edition Diktar figure with the slightly different coloured Quantum Spanner accessory.

Day of the Plot Holes - Everything explodes. The Doctor and clara run around like headless chickens. Some complete bobbins is shouted out at breakneck speed. Clara looks pained. The backdrops look gorgous. Clara explodes. The TARDIS explodes put then reappears almost instantly as if nothing has happened. The Doctor saves the day by hugging a hoody and saying he loves him. The hoody then explodes.

Oh my God Karl Pilkington as a companion would be comedy gold. MAKE IT HAPPEN MOFFAT! (Seriously, even if it's just for 1 episodes).
