So, now we know for sure we can look forward to the return of the Daleks, more dinosaurs (this time, not on a spaceship), some new foes and, of course, lots of explosions. But there apparently will be more than a little soul-searching by the Doctor, who wonders if he’s a good man and wants to atone for the mistakes he’s made. This definitely looks like the “darker” season with a more “dangerous” Doctor that we’ve been promised.
Also? We should probably prepare for another dating controversy. How can the 12th Doctor be over 2,000 years old already? In “The Day of the Doctor,” the 11th Doctor claimed his age was “Twelve-hundred and something, I think — unless I’m lying.” And he couldn’t even remember if he was lying anymore. So, was the Matt Smith Doctor actually shaving years off his age?
