Note: For a full account of how we got to where we are as this story begins, read our recap of “Dark Water”
It’s been quite a week for Doctor Who fans, has it not?
MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD if you haven’t seen “Dark Water”!
We begin with Clara, who has been doing a lot of thinking, a lot of planning and clearly has something on her mind…
At the end of Saturday’s Doctor Who (October 25), just as we were all heaving a deep sigh of relief that the Earth had escaped being fried by a huge solar flare, a deeply unsettling “Next Time” trailer arrived. …
Now that the TARDIS is back to normal size and the dimensions are leaving each other alone again, time for a trip into the origins of all fairy stories:
After seeing off invaders from a flatter dimension and having to rescue the TARDIS by dragging it off a rail-track with his fingers, this week, the Doctor arrives in the middle of a jungle. Except that jungle is also central London.
Danny thinks Clara has finished traveling in time, and the Doctor thinks Danny doesn’t mind Clara staying on. All will be well, providing the Doctor can return her to the exact space and moment she left from, every time.
Doctor Who fans, this might be the moment to get your non-Whovian friends into the room and show them exactly what their favorite TV dramas are lacking.
Having seen off the Foretold with a salute, this week our time-traveling twosome have to do battle not just with creatures from a thinner dimension, but living street art.
In a dining car on a train in space, the lights flicker, and an old lady spots a man dressed as a mummy.
