i remember some of the old Dr who's last episode of season 12 really bought back some memories of a few dr's. point im trying to make is you will never know how its going to turn out with this series always more questions then answers. every single one from way back that's whats so great about it.

I would love it if Osgood became the new companion.

Mummy On the Orient Express Scene: Perkins- I've made my desicion then. Mummy- What is it then? Perkins- I'm putting you into Room 101!

 Mummy on the Orient Express, oh that's hideous, so scary, it's grotesque. Oh sorry Frank, I thought it was a photo of the mummy, oops!

You know, something occurred to me the other day while I was re-watching The Day of the Doctor. Since we know that UNIT will be involved in the finale, is it possible that they will see a return to the Black Archive? There was that bit in The Day of the Doctor where Kate said that Clara had security clearance from "her last visit," of which there was a picture that Clara didn't recognize. One would naturally assume that she simply couldn't remember it because of the memory filters, but what if those were just a red herring meant to cover an event that had yet to happen from Clara's perspective? And there was also that bit where the camera lingered on the head of a Cyberman... okay, maybe I'm just being a bit too paranoid, but after the telephone in The Time of the Doctor and the barn in The Day of the Doctor, I have to suspect everything! :P

Sorry, wait a minute, Mummy on the Oriant express now reads as:

'The Doctor is on the most beautiful train in history, speeding among the stars of the future. But a deadly creature is stalking the passengers. Once you see the horrifying mummy, you only have 66 seconds to live. No exceptions, no reprieve. As the Doctor races against the clock, he is seen at his deadliest and most ruthless.

Will he work out how to defeat the mummy? Start the clock!'

Yet before it was:

'The Doctor and Clara are on the most beautiful train in history, speeding among the stars of the future – but they are unaware that a deadly creature is stalking the passengers.Once you see the horrifying Mummy you only have 66 seconds to live. No exceptions, no reprieve. As the Doctor races against the clock Clara sees him at his deadliest and most ruthless. Will he work out how to defeat the Mummy? Start the clock!'

So is clara in this episode, or not?

 In the Forest of the Night reminds me of the Narnia Chronicles.

No more Ellis George listed after this week? Oh no...

What is The Foretold? Is it a future tense version of the Teller?

I'm so hoping that when the Doctor meets Osgood again, he still thinks she's called 'Yes'

Looking at the cast lists, it's interesting that Flatline doesn't mention Danny.

The children in that ITFOTN photo look like primary school children rather than Coal Hill children? I wonder how Danny is involved?

When I click on "The Foretold" it just takes me to the top of the page. Is this supposed to happen?

The finale sounds very interesting!

Am I the only one who thinks it might be Kate Stewart saying that quote to the Doctor in the finale? It really doesn't sound like a Clara line and her and the Doctor's big fallout seems to be in episode 8 and 9 so redoing it again seems redundant. Or Maybe it's even the Doctor speaking to Kate or Clara?

I'm gonna guess this will be Doctor only as Clara leaves at the end of KTM, and then Flatline will be just clara, then they get back together in ITFOTN leading into the finale. If this is true, it's gonna be an emotional roller coaster.

@The Abominable Zombie Perhaps Mummy on the Orient Express is a Clara-lite, filmed at the same time as Flatline which is already rumoured to be Doctor-lite.

@Malohkeh Still hoping they're keeping her return secret until the last moment, lol. They better not kill her off tomorrow or this little Whovian will not be a happy camper lol. :/

@ Notsosmartguy Will Kill the Moon Could also be Missy to the Doctor.  We don't yet know much about her but she seems obsessed with the Doctor and the quote sounds like something someone obsessed person might say.

While they still both might be Lite episodes they didn't share a filming block.
