they did reveal it - a blink and you missed it throw away line about an 'heir'.. so she's family - daughter I would imagine, and would fit with his assertion that he wouldn't reveal his name unless there was a bond between them strong enough to warrant it - and thats about as close as he'll ever get. There was also the comment when she was about to die, about regenerating, and that the result would be the same for her as it would be for him.. giving weight to the 'she's and heir of a time lord' theory.

On the other hand there was a significant look between them when someone said they 'fought like an old married couple'. Could go either way.

Quick qn to long timer fans- has the Doctor's real name ever been revealed before?

As for him not re-gen before she meets him again - doubtful. Me thinks she would have recognised him as The Doctor in whatever form he took. It's the eyes, remember...?

The only downside to this - as funny as it was originally, i was getting sick of the term 'spoilers' by the end.

I know what you mean about the 'spoilers' thing. Kinda misleading in the trailers, too, which vexed me slightly.

SB: You're kidding, right? They love toying with the fans. The arc that's heading the series finale is something that's been running since Eccleston. We may never find out about River Song.

I hope they do bring Jenny back at some point, though. She's very capable.


edit: Missy - nope, never mentioned.

Yeah I dont ever see River Song coming back. There was enough subtext and hints dropped that we can establish who she is, she was given a fitting send off, and the show will never run long enough to enable them to play out the story line she was suggesting.
It just adds more layers to the doctor's future.

It would be nice to see though I like the daughter idea, but he's had a daughter before and who do you suppose the Mother is?

But I think we will see what happens to Donna that she suggested

Silly Doctor - when you ran off with the future screwdriver, you left Donna alone with that diary...

Also, I hear that Mr Tennant:

- Is dating Georgia Moffat, aka Jenny
- Has yet to be invited to return to the show after the specials (ie. season '5')
- Joked with Stephen Moffat in the latest commentary that Moffat has James Nesbitt on speed dial...

It is..

Which makes me feel hypocritical, given my own relationship.

Sacre bleu, I didn't know that.

And yes, just watched an interview with Mr Tennant saying that he hasn't been approached about the next series yet. Presumably this is because of the Davies-Moffat changeover..
So we've got four specials to watch out for in 2009, and Tennant in Hamlet as well. I'm very tempted to go, especially as Patrick Stewart's in it too.


I noticed Donna was left alone with the diary too.. the question is, did she have a sneaky peek?
