New image from the next episode of Doctor Who, ‘The Caretaker’ premiering Saturday, September 27th at 9/8c on BBC America.
This week, when terrifying events threaten Coal Hill school, the Doctor decides to go undercover.
The Skovox Blitzer is ready to destroy all humanity – and worse, any second now, Danny Pink and the Doctor are going to meet.
"I’m the new caretaker, John Smith."
"Welcome to Coal Hill, Mr. Smith."
Go behind the scenes of this week’s crime caper of an episode with Doctor Who Extra!
Spoiler alert! This contains some scenes from Time Heist, so make sure you’ve seen the episode before watching!
(River song voice) Spoilers! We do our best to avoid them.
Over the next few days we’ll be posting a whole bunch of Doctor Who Series 8 and Deep Breath spoilers, ESPECIALLY on Saturday during the premiere. Out of respect for those who wish to remain unspoiled, we’ll be tagging all of our spoiler-heavy posts with #DWSpoilers (and we suggest that you do the same!) which you can block with a fancy-shmancy Tumblr extension-
We suggest installing either Tumblr Savior or XKit and blocking the tag #DWSpoilers. With XKit you’ll have to install the “Blacklist” extension and add the word from there.
With either of those installed and the hashtag blocked, whenever a post pops up on your dash with that tag, the post will be hidden. You’ll have the option of clicking on it to read it if you’d like, and with XKit you can block the posts from appearing entirely. Both of those websites linked above have detailed instructions on how to install and you can definitely ask around Tumblr if you run into any problems.
We can’t wait to watch the premiere together, and will continue to do our best to keep those who can’t watch along unspoiled.
We’ll be liveblogging the premiere of ‘Time Heist’ at 9/8c, here’s our guide to remaining unspoiled!
Radio Times designer Stuart Manning knocks it out of the park again with his poster for tomorrow’s episode of Doctor Who. This week, Time Heist’s crime caper-inspired plot gave Stuart a few ideas for how it should look.
"Slinky Miss Delphox was the starting point for this one. Keeley Hawes’ publicity pic had such a great silhouette that I immediately wanted to include it. I did a poster for Mad Men a couple of years back, using a similar treatment on Joan, and the idea stuck in my head. The other influence was the heist movie inspiration of the episode itself, which got me thinking about things like Ocean’s 11 and the Rat Pack. In my head, this a sorta special Saul Bass-style title sequence for the episode, playing alongside a Henry Mancini sax-and-harpsichord arrangement of the Doctor Who theme." [x]
Production on 2014’s Doctor Who Christmas episode has begun, with a host of British acting talent set to appear!
The Christmas special, a cracker of a highlight in the festive season’s schedule, will air this Christmas on BBC America and promises to be an action-packed, unmissable adventure.
Nick Frost, actor and screenwriter, has starred in numerous hit film and television roles, including Spaced, The World’s End, Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, Cuban Fury and Paul, which he also wrote.
Nick comments: “I’m so thrilled to have been asked to guest in the Doctor Who Christmas Special, I’m such a fan of the show. The read-through was very difficult for me; I wanted to keep stuffing my fingers into my ears and scream ‘No spoilers!’ Every day on set I’ve had to silence my internal fan-boy squeals!”
Michael Troughton (Breathless, The New Statesman), who has recently returned to acting, will follow in his father’s footsteps by appearing in Doctor Who. His father, Patrick Troughton, played the second incarnation of the Doctor.
They will be joined by Natalie Gumede (Coronation Street, Ideal, Strictly Come Dancing), Faye Marsay (Pride, The White Queen, Fresh Meat) and Nathan McMullen (Misfits, Casualty).
Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, says: “Frost at Christmas - it just makes sense! I worked with Nick on the Tintin movie many years ago and it’s a real pleasure to lure him back to television for a ride on the TARDIS.” (x)
