My two big feature articles for Kasterborous preview the next eight episodes of Doctor Who, starting with tomorrow’s The Bells of St. John. I can’t wait to see it and, over the next two months, uncover the secret of Clara Oswin Oswald (Jenna-Louise Coleman).
The spoiler-free previews are quite extensive, so are split across two articles, the first tackling the first three episodes of Series 7: Part 2, and the second covering the rest.
Read Part 1 here.
(Previewing: The Bells of St. John; The Rings of Akhaten; and Cold War.)
And Part 2 here.
(Previewing Hide; Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS; The Crimson Horror; Nightmare in Silver – previously known as The Last Cyberman – and the as yet untitled finale.)
The series sees the return of the Ice Warriors and the Cybermen (and possibly other returning foes), as well as Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint and Strax.
Series writers include Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss, and Neil Cross; directors include Colm McCarthy, Mat King and Saul Metzstein. Of the finale, Matt Smith says:
“Towards the end of the season… I think we might have one of those clever Moffat creations. One of the new classic monsters. And they’ve got a great name and they are so brilliant.”
I cannot wait.
I’ve had some particularly nice comments about these two, and I’m really grateful for any feedback.
