Mugato: SockMonkeyHolocaust: Hey, can we get a spoilers tag for people who have never seen the series but think that one day they might be interested in seeing it but probably not?

What he said. Actually I don't really care about spoilers but I've never seen the series but might check it out someday if I'm bedridden with malaria or something and it's the only thing on. So what's his real name?

PartTimeBuddha: The trust, the love, the rivalry and the betrayals.

We don't need to see the Time War to see those- to the contrary, it's far more interesting to see  the effects. Imagine if somebody went back and tried to make a trilogy that was the origin story of a major character like Darth Vader, covering every angstrom of his growth from a promising child, into a Jedi, and eventually into Darth Vader. It'd be terrible, because  everything important was covered with a single line uttered by Obi Wan.

Everything important about the Time War isn't the specific details about what happened.More important: it's  a time war. There should be multiple versions of what happened. History was in chaotic flux. There's one version of the Time War where Rassilon came back. There's another where he didn't. There's only one true fact about the Time War: the Doctor ended it, at great personal cost. The Time War can't, and shouldn't, have a single history. It should be bifurcating chaos that's comprehensible only to a Time Lord. If a human could understand the true horrors of the Time War,  it wouldn't actually be that horrible.

I'm pretty sure the island is purgatory, the polar bear ended up there because the black smoke wanted somebody to play poker with, and the Doctor is actually WaaaAAaAaaAAAaaallllt.

when writers get more concerned with the story they aren't telling instead of the one they are, it all comes out to be about the same, at least.

TV's Vinnie: gypping us out of learning the Doctor's true name after a year of hype.

Oh, you weren't paying attention. Such a shame.

TV's Vinnie: I have a tire iron that I wanna use to make Steven Moffat's brain hurt for gypping us out of learning the Doctor's true name after a year of hype.

You honestly thought that was going to get answered?  Truthfully, that is the one question that will never get answered because if it does get answered, the show ends.  And honestly, I hope it never gets answered.  Not because I want the show to continue forever, but at this point, no name could be as good as anything we've come up with.

/I say his name was Kuntakente before changing it to Tobi.

Has anyone come with and explanation for this tacky crap? Was it indeed some kind of union thing they had to do (at the end to avoid spoilers in the opening credits)?

WTF Indeed: MadSkillz: And yet they did not pick up on the whole thing that a FARKER brought up in a previous thread. That the outfit that John Hurt is wearing on set looks like a super-faded version of the Eighth Doctor's  'promotional' outfit introduced in 2010(which had a pic of Paul McGann in the outfit). A blue leather jacket with those same buttons.

New spinoff

Doctor Who: The Time War

As someone said in a previous thread: the next spinoff will be "The Victorian Lesbian Lizard Detective Agency".

The only thing that made my brain hurt was my DVR not recording it.  I am trying not to torrent anymore so I finally found it on some website called Woot.  Watched it on there but not in HD and on a smaller video screen.

Didn't really expect the Doctor's name to be Delmore.  THAT was unexpected.
