DOCTOR WHO TIN DOG PODCAST REVIEWS THE LATEST DOCTOR WHO EPISODE.
UPDATE TO FOLLOW
"Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS" will be the tenth episode of the seventh series of the British science-fiction drama Doctor Who. It will be broadcast on 27 April 2013, and will star Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor and Jenna-Louise Coleman as Clara Oswald. This episode was written by Stephen Thompson and is about an adventure in the TARDIS. The episode will also include three brothers from an intergalactic salvage crew, played by Ashley Walters, Mark Oliver, and Jahvel Hall.
Clara is lost in the depths of the TARDIS which is invaded by an intergalactic salvage crew who want to sell it for scrap, but the Doctor threatens to destroy the TARDIS by putting it in lock down and activating the self destruct if the salvage crew doesn't help him find Clara.
Lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat gave the concept of an episode discovering the centre of the TARDIS to writer Stephen Thompson. Thompson explained that this was because Moffat was "haunted" by the 1978 story The Invasion of Time, which was set on the TARDIS but used hastily-constructed sets. Thompson was also interested in mathematics and remarked, "anything involving multi-dimensional geometry gets me excited". Moffat left the rest of the story to be developed by Thompson.
The episode finished filming in September 2012 Guest star Ashley Walters was in trouble with the producers on the first day of filming when he tweeted a picture of himself in his costume in his trailer with the word "space". The picture was immediately removed.
