Yay, Psychic paper! I've missed it being used more often. It seemed in the Eleventh Doctor's era it was mostly used for receiving messages or comic relief. I'd be glad for it to be used more! I like the new case, too... maybe since they made that, it will be used more often?

I want the last teaser to be The Doctor saying "One day to go".

Great to see the psychic paper again which hasn't been used much since the Tennant era although it has made brief appearances with Matt Smith. I hope it's brought back a lot more now.

If whoever shot this episode's sequence doesn't get every award going, I will class this as a crime against humanity. These are some of the best television visuals I've ever seen.

So has anyone mentioned how good it is to see the psychic paper? Possibly meaning it's going to be used more again? Oh, right, nearly all of you. What about 2 days being too long? Oh, the majority again. Ummm... Well, not sure I can really add anything here... This is awkward... I'll try and get here quicker next time!

Hmm we need a Video Editing-savvy Whovian to string all these together tomorrow when we get the final teaser!!  Also nice to see the Psychic paper make an appearance, I feel like 11 only used it like twice.  Only times I can think of is Vampires in Venice and Nightmare in Silver.  Maybe in Night Terrors, but I can't remember for sure if he did or not.

If the psychic paper tells me what I want to see, why does it say "2 days to go" instead of "Holy crap! Turn on your TV!"

I thought the psychic paper told you what you wanted to see. 2 days is too long!

O-Oh! If the psychic paper says it's 2 days that means we just want to believe it comes in 2 days... But who knows what's the truth!

@Timhogan In The Power of Three, Kate Stewart sends him a message on it. We don't actually get to see it well, he just glances at it and says something about how he respects her ability to use it. 

Oh, and in A Good Man Goes to War, there is a reference to it.

He used it in the Almost People, too.

@Doctor When Actually the paper tells you what its holder *needs* you to see. 2 days is just fine.

Hope they'll use it more often, so fans will be able to criticize it for being a cop out or a deus ex machina or other posh critics slang words. :)

That's pretty much already said about the Sonic Screwdriver. There's a reason it was removed in the 1980's, maybe that same reason is only a year away.

@mczolly They should really just use it at the beginning of an episode, when the Doctor needs to introduce himself, so they don't have to waste the first 20 minutes of the episode with the doctor having to prove himself to people. It should never be used to resolve the problem, like the sonic screwdriver seems to be doing lately.

Nightmare in Silver is entirely forgetable anyway, so excuse me for not remembering it's last usage. =P

But when was the time before that? Hide, I think?

@type41tardis @mczolly I liked how it was used in the Tennant era. Take Midnight, for example. Ten uses it to show qualifications in order to get certain places, but there's nothing like "Hey look, Daleks, I'm not the Doctor, I'm Davros!" to get out of a pinch. That's how it  should be used: a tool to keep the story moving. Since Moffat, it's been used mostly to send messages, which I'm not very keen on...
