So how long before a website or tabloid reports the title of the special as "Blue Amends"? ;)

Before we get too excited, Blue Amends
sounds like the newest version of a script. It's not uncommon to call revisions by colors. So it could be the blue amended script

Sure someone has noticed this already, but there is a dalek edging in on the left hand side of the photographs. Probably nothing though.
