Series 7, Part 2 Discussion

Post by Patrick on Thu Jan 24, 2013 7:51 am

It has been confirmed by the BBC that Part 2 of Series 7 will commence on Saturday, March 30th. That's the day before Easter. The Doctor will be back, along with the now twice dead Clara Oswin Oswald. Here's what we currently know about the remaining 8 episodes for Series 7:


Series 7, Episode 6:
"The Bells of St. John" (working title, not yet confirmed)

Written by Steven Moffat, directed by Colm McCarthy
Set on present day Earth with the main plot appeared to be centred around 'something living in the wi-fi' which is feeding on humans. This 'sentient Twitter' as The Doctor puts it, harvests human minds and also has the power to project an image from your subconscious.



Series 7, Episode 7:
"The Rings of Akhaten" (working title, not yet confirmed)

Written by Neil Cross ("Luther"), directed by Farren Blackburn
According to Moffat, the story takes place on 'the biggest and best alien planet Doctor Who has ever done.'


Series 7, Episode 8:
"The Cold War" (again, a provisional title and subject to change)

Written by Mark Gatiss, directed by Douglas Mackinnon.
This is alleged to be a 'base under-siege' story which is set on a submarine. According to a rumour which appears to have been started by the UK's Daily Mail, The Ice Warriors will return in this episode for the first time since 1974. (As it's the Daily Mail, view that with some skepticism.)


Series 7, Episode 9:
Depending on who you listen to, this one is either called "The Hider In the House" or "Phantoms of the Hex".

Written by Neil Cross, directed by Jaime Payne.
This is claimed to be 'an historical ghost story.' Guest star Jessica Raine's CV states the title is Phantoms of the Hex but, other sources give the alternative. Dougray Scott also features.


Series 7, Episode 10:
"Journey To The Centre Of the TARDIS"

Written by Steve Thompson, directed by Mat King
Ashley Walters plays one of a trio of brothers, part of an intergalactic salvage crew. One hopes we'll get to see lots of detailed TARDIS interiors.


Series 7, Episode 11:
"The Crimson Horror"

Written by Mark Gatiss, directed by Saul Metzstein
Set in 'a strange Nineteenth Century village called Sweetville,' The Doctor investigates when people start going missing in a factory run by the mysterious Winifred Gillyflower (played by Dame Diana Rigg her very self). Madame Vastra, Jenny and Strax return. And Dame Diana's daughter, Rachael Stirling, also appears.


Series 7, Episode 12:
"The Last Cyberman"

Written by Neil Gaiman, director as yet unconfirmed.
The episode is confirmed to feature redesigned Cybermen. Steven Moffat's report brief to Neil was to 'make them scary again.' Part of the story is set in an abandoned theme park called Hedgewick's World. Warwick Davis, Tamzin Outhwaite, Jason Watkins and Calvin Dean are among the cast.


Series 7, Epsidoe 13:
(no title offered as yet)

Written by Stephen Moffat, director as yet unconfirmed.
This episode is rumoured to feature the return of River Song and Dr Simeon from the Christmas special, and lead into Doctor Who's fiftieth anniversary episode later in the year (Late November).

And the blurb!

Doctor Who is to return to BBC One on 30 March in a modern day urban thriller announced today as The Bells of St John, as the first official image is revealed giving fans a sneak peak at what to expect from the epic new series that starts Easter Saturday.

The Bells of St John airs on March 30 on BBC One, BBC America and SPACE whilst it airs the following day in Poland and South Africa. Set in London against the backdrop of new and old iconic landmarks, The Shard and Westminster Bridge, the episode will also establish a new nemesis, the Spoonheads, who will battle the Doctor as he discovers something sinister is lurking in the Wi-Fi. Speaking about the series, current showrunner Steven Moffat said:

"We're running round the rings of an alien world and then a haunted house. There's new Cybermen, new Ice Warriors and a never before attempted journey to the centre of the TARDIS. And in the finale, the Doctor's greatest secret will at last be revealed. If this wasn't already our most exciting year it would be anyway."

I just hope we can actually understand what the Ice Warriors are saying, now that they've had 40 years to practice their pronounciation.

Have I read somewhere that Nick Briggs is doing the voices?

Glad to see they haven't fiddled about with the design too much.

You know, after considering the upcoming episodes on that list, I think the one I am most looking forward to is "Journey To The Center of the TARDIS." I really want to see what they come up with for interior rooms on the old Type 40.

The Cyberman redesign looks absolutely amazing - it'll be better to see them in the full episode, but from the clip I think they look better than they have since Tomb!

I'm more interested in what sort of character John Hurt will be playing.

Very happy to hear Tennant is returning. And John Hurt, awesome. I would've preferred Donna, but Rose is fine too.

I'm not overly worried about who the 10th's companion will be. I'm far more interested to learn what the story will be, and if the enfolding 7 episodes will give us any clues about it. Sorry, that's my writer's nature.

Just a random thought: has anyone else considered that River Song's relationship with the Doctor is modelled on that of someone caring for a spouse who has something like Alzheimers/Dementia?

I see where you're going with this, Dave, and I don't disagree. I've always felt like the River Song/Doctor relationship was lifted from The Strange Case of Benjamin Button, and I think the alzheimers angle informed that story.
