Doctor, Doctor?

WARNING! Here be spoilers!

In fact, there is so much here that we’re not even going to tell you what this article is about. All you can do to save yourselves is to avoid reading this article – or go mad trying!

Bear in mind that all of this is based on hearsay and rumour – there is a chance that the linked articles contain considerable spoilerage, so seriously, do click responsibly.

The Doctor will come face to face with his greatest enemy this holiday season – himself.

According to Unreality Primetime, an invading army will clone the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) leaving honeymooner’s Rory (Arthur Darvill) and Amy (Karen Gillan) bemused as to which Doctor is the real one and which Doctor’s instructions should they follow.

Supposedly it is in this year’s Christmas Special A Christmas Carol the Doctor discovers his meddling copy while investigating the alien invasion.

Yet there have been conflicting reports as to which episode this cloned Doctor will appear in. The Unreality Primetime story is not sourced but a similar story did appear in the bastion of journalistic integrity The Daily Star which, while refering to the clone, doesn’t mention its appearance in the Christmas special (the piece also refers to new villians ‘The Silents’.)

Rather, according to Doctor Who Spoilers,  the clone may feature in Matthew Graham double header The Rebel Flesh and Gangers as part of a dastardly plan involving an office full of clone workers.

The website goes on to speculate that two of the Dream Lords spoilers for Series 6 within The Brilliant Book of Doctor Who could be the clones faux-paus, as it/he attempts to master the Doctors catchphrase, ‘Bow-ties are cool’:

“Beau Geste is cool”

“Bow Street Runners are cool”

None of this has been confirmed yet by anyone involved in the show but feel free to speculate below.

About the Author

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
