MORE DOC­TOR DRAMA

1 You’re keen that the star of the show has some juicy ma­te­rial to play, build­ing on those elec­tri­fy­ingly dra­matic mo­ments in se­ries nine. “I’d like to see the char­ac­ter evo­lu­tion of Ca­paldi’s Doc­tor con­tinue, with more stand­out mo­ments like his speech in the Zy­gon episode,” says Michael Lup­ton. Fred Har­ri­son, mean­while, has a zero tol­er­ance ap­proach when it comes to Twelve’s midlife cri­sis: “No sonic glasses, no gui­tar.”

A SENSE OF HIS­TORY

2 It’s the cru­cial ques­tion – who’ll be shar­ing the Doc­tor’s trav­els now Clara is gone? “Gemma Arter­ton would be bril­liant,” claims Lizzie Woods, “es­pe­cially if she plays some­one from the ’ 40s and has a cool vin­tage look like Agent Carter.”

MON­STER MASH­ING

3 You’re not short of sug­ges­tions when it comes to the fiendish crea­tures the Doc­tor should face. “I’d love the Sea Devils to make a re­turn,” says Josh Pin­der. “And as it’s Moff ’s fi­nal run of episodes I’d love the Vashta Ner­ada back.” Mike Cop­ping, mean­while, calls for the come­back of a foe not seen since the days of Wil­liam Hart­nell: “Mechanoids!”

TIME LORD­ING IT

4 The long- awaited re­turn of the Doc­tor’s peo­ple in se­ries nine has clearly fired up your imag­i­na­tion cir­cuits. An­drew Bard­s­ley wants “a re­turn to Gal­lifrey to put right past wrongs, in­clud­ing a brush with a pre­vi­ous Mas­ter – maybe John Simm?” Robert Wil­liam Gra­ham prefers a fresh Gal­lifreyan foe: “A brand new evil Time Lord vil­lain now that the Time Lords are back.”

THE THREE- ISH DOC­TORS

5 You want mul­ti­ple Doc­tors in Mof­fat’s swan song se­ries, you greedy lot. “Bring in Sean Per­twee for a cameo as his father’s Doc­tor,” sug­gests John Frahm, while Jenny Hope wants “Matt Smith. I’m a 50- year- old house­wife – and I want Matt back.”
