Synopsis

Once, long ago, in a land of monsters and corridors, a fair maiden was captured, and placed in a deep sleep.

She was used to being captured, and she had a hero who rescued her on just such occasions. But this time the hero never came.

And the fair maiden slept on.

Eventually, a King rescued the maiden, and made her his bride, which many wise old women might tell you is just another way of capturing fair maidens.

And still the fair maiden slept on.

Then, the hero had another stab at rescuing the maiden from her prison, but he was too late. And, more importantly, he had forgotten the rules of fairy tales.

He didn’t slay the dragon.

(Anyone purchasing this story from the Big Finish site will be able to download the original Extras track on MP3, which is 8 minutes longer than the version on the CD which had to be cut down just to fit onto the disc)

Synopsis

When the Doctor defeated the Dalek Time Controller and its Time Lord ally, the timelines shifted and events changed... but the danger is far from over. And new threats to the continued safety of the universe are emerging.

Molly O'Sullivan carried on with her life as a nursing assistant in World War One. She probably thought she would never see the Doctor in his 'Tardy-box' again...

From the Dalek occupied planet Nixyce VII through Earth's history and to the very edge of the universe, the Doctor's footprints across eternity are being tracked by foes old and new. But when did it all begin and when will it end? Living his life through the complexities of time travel, the Doctor can never be quite sure if he's experiencing his life in the most helpful order. The only certainty appears to be the advance of the powers of evil and the oncoming threat of a fight to the death against forces that would destroy everything the Doctor holds dear.

 

Part 1: The Traitor
by Nicholas Briggs


Nixyce VII is under Dalek occupation. For many, their only hope of survival is decent medical care, as slave working conditions under the Dalek regime are appalling. But when you help people to survive under the rule of the Daleks, are you actually helping the Daleks? Med-tech Liv Chenka doesn't have the luxury of pondering these dilemmas. She must just do what she feels is right.

But then there are the soldiers of last resort... The freedom fighters left behind to cause maximum damage to the Dalek war effort, at whatever cost. To them, anyone who seems to be helping the Daleks is a traitor.

And when the Doctor arrives, his secret agenda throws him into conflict with everyone.


Part 2: The White Room
by Alan Barnes


Molly O'Sullivan is still trying to help people, but now she is back in London, staying in Baker Street.

But there are dangerous forces abroad. Where are the young deserters disappearing to? Who are the Huntsmen? And what is really going on at the Blackwell Convalescent Home?

Perhaps the mysterious 'Surgeon General' has the answers. To find out, the Doctor must tackle an old and baffling enemy.


Part 3: Time's Horizon
by Matt Fitton


The Doctor and Molly find themselves at the very edge of creation. But something dangerous seems to be heading back into the known universe from the very end of time.

The crew of the cryo-ship Orpheus, including its medical officer Liv Chenka, have their mission parameters to adhere to; but the arrival of the Doctor and Molly changes everything. An ancient and terrible force is on a collision course with them all and the outcome seems to be a matter of divine destiny.


Part 4: Eyes of the Master
by Matt Fitton


The Doctor, Liv and Molly arrive back on Earth in the 1970s to investigate the Ides Institute. The timelines have shifted since the Doctor and Molly first travelled here and all is not as it was. Dr Sally Armstrong is still working for the Ides, but her associate has a devastating plan in mind.

Soon, Molly's 'dark eyes' prove to be at the centre of a plot to seize control of all life in the universe.

Synopsis

The Doctor, Susan, Ian and Barbara land on the planet Hydra, where Admiral Jonas Kaan leads a vast flotilla of ships trying to elude the vicious race that has invaded and occupied their world. But his ships are being picked off one by one, vessels and crews dragged underwater by an unseen foe.

The time travellers find themselves pitched into battle against the Voord, the ruthless enemy they last encountered on the planet Marinus. As they take the fight to the very heart of the territory now controlled by the Voord the stakes get higher. First they lose the TARDIS... then they lose that which they hold most dear. And that's only the start of their troubles.

In the capital, Predora City, they will learn the truth of what it means to be a Voord. And that truth is horrifying.

On the jungle planet Garros, Earth Forces Knight Commander-in-Chief Greg Saraton and his team are hunting gigantic beasts, for sport. When the Doctor and Leela arrive, they are caught up in a web of intrigue where there is no clear friend or foe.

What is Saraton’s vital connection with Earth’s Solar System’s Defence Shield? Why are the giant reptilian birds of Garros attacking? What terrible secret lurks deep within the trees?

Before the truth can be revealed, a heavy price will be extracted and loyalties will be tested to the limit.

TDP 428: Dark Water

#TinDogPodcast #DarkWater #DoctorWho #Podcast #Review

 

reprinted from wiki

 

Dark Water" is the eleventh episode of the eighth series of the British science fiction television programme Doctor Who. The episode was written byshowrunner and head writer Steven Moffat and is the first of a two-part story; the concluding episode is "Death in Heaven", the finale of the eighth series. It was first broadcast on BBC One on 1 November 2014.

In the episode, Danny Pink (Samuel Anderson) is killed, and finds himself in the Nethersphere. As the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and his companion Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) try to find Danny, they find themselves in a facility that accommodates Cybermen, run by recurring character Missy (Michelle Gomez). In the episode's climax, Missy reveals her true identity as the Master.

 

 

Plot[edit]

Clara is talking over her phone to Danny, fully ready to admit she has been travelling with the Doctor and that she loves Danny, when the other end goes silent. A stranger picks up and sadly informs Clara that Danny got hit by a passing car and has died. She struggles with his death for days, refusing to let her emotions go and decides to call on the Doctor to make him change the past. Without telling him her plans, she suggests they go to an active volcano, and then secretly collects all seven of the TARDIS keys and after the TARDIS is in motion, strikes him with a sleep-inducing patch. When they land and the Doctor wakes up, she throws the keys one by one into the lava - the only way to destroy them - unless the Doctor takes her back to save Danny, despite knowing it would create a time paradox. The Doctor soon reveals this was just a dream state - the patch not working on him and instead had used it on Clara - to learn why she was upset, and to see how far she was willing to go. He offers, as a friend, to see if they can find Danny in the afterlife, and has Clara use the telepathic interface of the TARDIS to centre on Danny.

They land in a strange mausoleum which holds several tanks of human skeletons under water. They are greeted by Missy, who introduces herself as an android receptionist, and are taken to Dr Chang, one of the scientists in the facility. The Doctor asks about the oddness of the skeletons not drifting apart, and Dr Chang reveals that they are submerged in a substance called dark water, which only allows organic material to be seen, and that the bodies are encased in a support exoskeleton. The Doctor remains curious about the facility, and Dr Chang explains how it was based on the discovery of the voices of the recently deceased in the white noise in broadcast signals; the Doctor remains doubtful of this.

At the same time, Danny has regained consciousness in a spartan office and greeted by Seb, who reveals he is in the Nethersphere - a giant city enclosed within a sphere. Seb explains Danny has died, and helps him to get used to the new space, noting that he is still tied to the state of his body - likely being kept in a refrigerated morgue as he constantly feels cold. As part of this, Seb has arranged a meeting between Danny and a young boy that he had accidentally killed while he was a soldier, and while Danny tearfully tries to offer his apologies, the boy refuses and runs off. As Seb and Danny are talking, Seb then receives a notice that Clara is trying to contact Danny, who does not know that Clara has travelled to the Nethersphere. The Doctor leaves with Dr. Chang to investigate the facility further while Clara takes the call, asking a number of questions to try to assure that she is really speaking to Danny. Clara says she will do anything to be with him, and, wanting her to live out her life while believing that he is dead, Danny presses Clara to end the call. Seb then offers him the option to delete all his emotions.

Meanwhile, as the Doctor and Dr Chang return to the tanks, Missy has instructed the skeletons inside to rise and starts the process to drain the tanks. She is caught as the Doctor and Dr Chang enter, and Dr Chang reveals that Missy is the supervisor of the place, rather than a receptionist. Disappointed with Chang, Missy then kills him with a handheld device. As the tanks start to drain, the skeletons are revealed to be those of Cybermen. Missy points to a spherical device situated in the middle of the area and names that as the Nethersphere, revealed to be a Gallifreyan memory storage system knownMatrix. Missy explains that the consciousness of the deceased are stored and held to be inserted into new Cybermen soldiers after having their emotions deleted. The Doctor frantically questions Missy's identity, coming to realise she is aTime Lady possessing two hearts, which he had first recognized when they had come into contact earlier. As the tanks finally drain and open, the Doctor races out of the facility, only to discover that it is situated in the middle of contemporary London, inside St Paul's Cathedral. The Doctor tries to warn away civilians but Missy calls out the Doctor's actions as the ravings of a lunatic. The Doctor begs her to tell him who she is; she reveals that "Missy" is short for "the Mistress", as, in her current form, she could not call herself the Master. The episode ends as the Cybermen begin to march on London, Clara trapped in Dr Chang's lab with another Cyberman, and Danny about to activate the deletion of his emotions when he sees the young boy he killed in the reflection.

Continuity[edit]

The episode identifies the series-long theme involving Missy, typically who has only been shown at the ends of past episodes and interacting with characters that have just died and arriving in the Nethersphere, such as the Half-Face Man from "Deep Breath"; this is the first episode where the Doctor, Clara, and Missy interact directly.

Production[edit]

The read through for "Dark Water" took place on 12 June 2014. Filming began soon afterwards, on 16 June 2014. Locations for the episode included CardiffPontypool and St. Paul's Cathedral.[1] When filming the episode's climax, Capaldi and Gomez mouthed their lines—recorded later using automated dialogue replacement—to hide the reveal from all spectators of the filming.[2]

Broadcast and reception[edit]

Preview release[edit]

"Dark Water" has scenes removed from the DVD previews that were sent to reviewers, and a media blackout has been imposed on any plot details that were not released by the BBC or Steven Moffat. One notable scene removed by the BBC is the revelation of Missy's identity.[3]

Reception[edit]

Overnight viewing figures were estimated at 5.27 million.[4]

The episode received highly positive reviews from critics. Michael Hogan of The Telegraph gave it five stars out of five and called it a "bone-rattling and suitably spooky fare". He praised the source of everyday fears such as death for the horror and was praised the performances of Capaldi, Coleman, Anderson and Gomez.[5] Neela Debnath of The Independent said that the episode was "sad, funny, scary, romantic" and "is everything you could ask for from a Doctor Who finale the day after Halloween."[6] Richard Edwards of SFX gave the episode four and a half stars out of five, claiming "...in a series of great Capaldi performances, this is one of the best". He praised the opening premise and the big reveal at the end and also commented on its allusions to Second Doctor stories, The Tomb of the Cybermen and The Invasion.[7]

Matt Risley on IGN praised the episode for its "tense and traumatic dose of Who", but was critical of the lack of action, which usually went hand-in-hand with the Cybermen. Overall, he rated the first part of the finale an 8.4.[8] Alaisdair Wilkins on the AV Club gave the episode a B rating, claiming that "Dark Water could be a good episode, or it could be a terrible one", indicating that it was only the first half of the story.[9]

Synopsis

On the Isle of Wight, a colony of survivors wakes to a world plunged into darkness. Before long, the triffids, thought safely out of the way on the mainland, attack... In John Wyndham’s classic bestseller The Day of the Triffids the world has been overwhelmed by killer plants. As the novel ends, Wyndham’s narrator scientist Bill Masen is escaping, with his wife and four-year-old son, to the Isle of Wight where a small colony of survivors is holding out. Simon Clark’s sequel picks up the story twenty-five years on.

The survivors are safe, for the time being at least, on their island, where they have continued efforts to combat the triffids, while also striving in various ways to build a new civilization. Elsewhere in the world, similar colonies cling to survival, while the triffids persist in their attempts to destroy humanity.

One morning Bill Masen’s son, David, now grown up, wakes to a world plunged into darkness. Now, the triffids have an advantage over humanity.

Synopsis

The Point of Stillness. A place the Time Lords are forbidden to go. It cannot be drawn, it cannot be whispered, it cannot be thought. And yet somebody is very keen to reach it.

Deep within the TARDIS, something unusual is happening. One of the ship's oldest secrets is about to be revealed, and once it is, nothing will ever be the same again.

As danger materialises deep within the ship, spectral strangers lurk in the corridors and bizarre events flood the rooms, someone long-forgotten is ready to reappear. The Doctor and Leela are soon to discover that their home isn't quite the safe stronghold they thought.

Flatland - Free Epub book

#doctorwho #flatline #epub

reprinted from wiki

 

Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions is an 1884 satirical novella by the English schoolmaster Edwin Abbott Abbott. Writing pseudonymously as "A Square",[1] the book used the fictional two-dimensional world of Flatland to comment on the hierarchy of Victorian culture, but the novella's more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions.[2]

Several films have been made from the story, including the feature film Flatland(2007). Other efforts have been short or experimental films, including one narrated by Dudley Moore and the short films Flatland: The Movie (2007) andFlatland 2: Sphereland starring Martin Sheen and Kristen Bell.[3]

 

 

Plot[edit]

 
Illustration of a simple house in Flatland.

The story describes a two-dimensional world occupied by geometric figures, whereof women are simple line-segments, while men are polygons with various numbers of sides. The narrator is a square, a member of the caste of gentlemen and professionals, who guides the readers through some of the implications of life in two dimensions. The Square dreams about a visit to a one-dimensional world (Lineland) inhabited by "lustrous points", and attempts to convince the realm's monarch of a second dimension; but is unable to do so. He is himself visited by a three-dimensional sphere, which he cannot comprehend until he sees Spaceland (a tridimensional world) for himself. This Sphere visits Flatland at the turn of each millennium to introduce a new apostle to the idea of a third dimension in the hopes of eventually educating the population of Flatland. From the safety of Spaceland, they are able to observe the leaders of Flatland secretly acknowledging the existence of the sphere and prescribing the silencing of anyone found preaching the truth of Spaceland and the third dimension. After this proclamation is made, many witnesses are massacred or imprisoned (according to caste).

After the Square's mind is opened to new dimensions, he tries to convince the Sphere of the theoretical possibility of the existence of a fourth (and fifth, and sixth ...) spatial dimension; but the Sphere returns his student to Flatland in disgrace.

The Square then has a dream in which the Sphere visits him again, this time to introduce him to Pointland, whereof the point (sole inhabitant, monarch, and universe in one) perceives any communication as a thought originating in his own mind (cf.Solipsism):

'You see,' said my Teacher, 'how little your words have done. So far as the Monarch understands them at all, he accepts them as his own – for he cannot conceive of any other except himself – and plumes himself upon the variety of Its Thought as an instance of creative Power. Let us leave this God of Pointland to the ignorant fruition of his omnipresence and omniscience: nothing that you or I can do can rescue him from his self-satisfaction.'[4]

— the Sphere

The Square recognizes the identity of the ignorance of the monarchs of Pointland and Lineland with his own (and the Sphere's) previous ignorance of the existence of higher dimensions. Once returned to Flatland, the Square cannot convince anyone of Spaceland's existence, especially after official decrees are announced that anyone preaching the existence of three dimensions will be imprisoned (or executed, depending on caste). Eventually the Square himself is imprisoned for just this reason.

Social elements[edit]

Men are portrayed as polygons whose social status is determined by their regularity and the number of their sides, with a Circle considered the "perfect" shape. On the other hand, females consist only of lines and are required by law to sound a "peace-cry" as they walk, lest she be mistaken face-to-face for a point. The Square evinces accounts of cases where women have accidentally or deliberately stabbed men to death, as evidence of the need for separate doors for women and men in buildings.

In the world of Flatland, classes are distinguished by the "Art of Hearing", the "Art of Feeling", and the "Art of Sight Recognition". Classes can be distinguished by the sound of one's voice, but the lower classes have more developed vocal organs, enabling them to feign the voice of a polygon or even a circle. Feeling, practised by the lower classes and women, determines the configuration of a person by feeling one of its angles. The "Art of Sight Recognition", practised by the upper classes, is aided by "Fog", which allows an observer to determine the depth of an object. With this, polygons with sharp angles relative to the observer will fade more rapidly than polygons with more gradual angles. Colour of any kind is banned in Flatland after Isosceles workers painted themselves to impersonate noble Polygons. The Square describes these events, and the ensuing class war at length.

The population of Flatland can "evolve" through the "Law of Nature", which states: "a male child shall have one more side than his father, so that each generation shall rise (as a rule) one step in the scale of development and nobility. Thus the son of a Square is a Pentagon, the son of a Pentagon, a Hexagon; and so on".

This rule is not the case when dealing with isosceles triangles (Soldiers and Workmen) with only two congruent sides. The smallest angle of an isosceles triangle gains thirty arc minutes (half a degree) each generation. Additionally, the rule does not seem to apply to many-sided polygons. For example, the sons of several hundred-sided polygons will often develop fifty or more sides more than their parents. Furthermore, the angle of an isosceles triangle or the number of sides of a (regular) polygon may be altered during life by deeds or surgical adjustments.

An equilateral Triangle is a member of the craftsman class. Squares and Pentagons are the "gentlemen" class, as doctors, lawyers, and other professions. Hexagons are the lowest rank of nobility, all the way up to (near) circles, who make up the priest class. The higher-order polygons have much less of a chance of producing sons, preventing Flatland from being overcrowded with noblemen.

Regular polygons were considered in isolation until chapter seven of the book when the issue of irregularity, or physical deformity, became considered. In a two dimensional world a regular polygon can be identified by a single angle and/or vertex. In order to maintain social cohesion, irregularity is to be abhorred, with moral irregularity and criminality cited, "by some" (in the book), as inevitable additional deformities, a sentiment with which the Square concurs. If the error of deviation is above a stated amount, the irregular polygon faces euthanasia; if below, he becomes the lowest rank of civil servant. An irregular polygon is not destroyed at birth, but allowed to develop to see if the irregularity can be “cured” or reduced. If the deformity remains, the irregular is “painlessly and mercifully consumed”.[5]

As a social satire[edit]

In Flatland Abbott describes a society rigidly divided into classes. Social ascent is the main aspiration of its inhabitants, apparently granted to everyone but strictly controlled by the top of the hierarchy. Freedom is despised and the laws are cruel. Innovators are imprisoned or suppressed. Members of lower classes who are intellectually valuable, and potential leaders of riots, are either killed, or promoted to the higher classes. Every attempt for change is considered dangerous and harmful. This world, as ours, is not prepared to receive 'Revelations from another world'.

The satirical part is mainly concentrated in the first part of the book, 'This World', which describes Flatland. The main points of interest are the Victorian concept on women's roles in the society and in the class-based hierarchy of men.[6]

Abbott has been accused of misogyny due to his portrait of women in 'Flatland'. In his Preface to the Second and Revised Edition, 1884, he answers such critics by stating that the Square:

was writing as a Historian, he has identified himself (perhaps too closely) with the views generally adopted by Flatland and (as he has been informed) even by Spaceland, Historians; in whose pages (until very recent times) the destinies of Women and of the masses of mankind have seldom been deemed worthy of mention and never of careful consideration.

—the Editor

Critical reception[edit]

Although Flatland was not ignored when it was published,[7] it did not obtain a great success. In the entry on Edwin Abbott in the Dictionary of National BiographyFlatland is not even mentioned.[2]

The book was discovered again after Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity was published, which introduced the concept of a fourth dimension. Flatland was mentioned in a letter entitled "Euclid, Newton and Einstein" published in Nature on February 12, 1920. In this letter Abbott is depicted, in a sense, as a prophet due to his intuition of the importance of time to explain certain phenomena:[2][8]

Some thirty or more years ago a little jeu d'esprit was written by Dr. Edwin Abbott entitled Flatland. At the time of its publication it did not attract as much attention as it deserved... If there is motion of our three-dimensional space relative to the fourth dimension, all the changes we experience and assign to the flow of time will be due simply to this movement, the whole of the future as well as the past always existing in the fourth dimension. —from a "Letter to the Editor" by William Garnett. in Nature on February 12, 1920.

The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography now contains a reference to Flatland.

Editions in print[edit]

Adaptations and parodies[edit]

Numerous imitations or sequels to Flatland have been written, and multiple other works have alluded to it. Examples include:

In film[edit]

Flatland (1965), an animated short film based on the novella, was directed by Eric Martin and based on an idea by John Hubley.[9][10][11]

Flatland (2007), a 98-minute animated independent feature film version directed by Ladd Ehlinger Jr,[12] updates the satire from Victorian England to the modern-day United States.[12]

Flatland: The Movie (2007), by Dano Johnson and Jeffrey Travis,[13] is a 34-minute animated educational film voice acted byMartin SheenKristen BellMichael York, and Tony Hale.[14] Its sequel was Flatland 2: Sphereland (2012), inspired by the novel Sphereland by Dionys Burger and starring Kristen BellDanny PudiMichael YorkTony HaleDanica McKellar, andKate Mulgrew.[15][16][17]

In literature[edit]

An Episode on Flatland: Or How a Plain Folk Discovered the Third Dimension by Charles Howard Hinton (1907), Spherelandby Dionys Burger (1965), The Planiverse by A. K. Dewdney (1984), Flatterland by Ian Stewart (2001), and Spaceland by Rudy Rucker (2002). Short stories inspired by Flatland include "The Dot and the Line: A Romance in Lower Mathematics" by Norton Juster (1963), "The Incredible Umbrella" by Marvin Kaye (1980), and "Message Found in a Copy of Flatland" by Rudy Rucker (1983)

Physicists and science popularizers Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking have both commented on and postulated about the effects of Flatland. Sagan recreates the thought experiment as a set-up to discussing the possibilities of higher dimensions of the physical universe in both the book and television series Cosmos,[18] whereas Dr. Hawking notes the impossibility of life in two-dimensional space, as any inhabitants would necessarily be unable to digest their own food.[19]

In television[edit]

Flatland features prominently in The Big Bang Theory episode "The Psychic Vortex",[20] when Sheldon Cooper declares it one of his favorite imaginary places to visit.[21]

It also features in the Futurama episode "2-D Blacktop", when Professor Farnsworth's adventures in drag racing lead to a foray of drifting in and out of inter-dimensional spaces.[22]

TDP 420: Mummy on the Orient Express

#doctorwho #podcast #tindogpodcast

Reprinted from wiki

 

Following from Clara's admission that she does not want to see the Doctor again after the events of "Kill the Moon", several weeks have passed, and she realizes that she doesn't hate the Doctor as she allows him to take her on one "last hurrah". He takes her via the TARDIS to a space-bound recreation of the Orient Express with passengers dressed in period pieces, all controlled by the computerized operator, Gus. Aboard the train, they find that an elderly woman, Mrs. Pitt, had recently died, claiming that she was attacked by a mummy that no one else could see. They retire to separate cabins for the evening, where Clara calls Danny in her present and gets advice how to properly end her relationship with the Doctor. She later encounters Maisie, Mrs. Pitt's granddaughter, who is distraught over the death and frustrated with the inability to see her body. The two get trapped in the luggage car, where a mummy's sarcophagus sits, and the two talk and bond while waiting for help.

 

Meanwhile, the Doctor, claiming he is a mystery shopper, starts to investigate the murder with the help of the train's engineer Perkins who is also curious about the death as well as the nature of the train. The Doctor speaks to Professor Moorhouse to talk about the myth of the Foretold, a supernatural being who claims its victim 66 seconds after the lights flicker, which they are able to confirm when the train's chef dies in a similar manner as Mrs. Pitt. The Doctor discovers Clara's situation but when he tries to rescue her, the lights flicker and the sarcophagus opens; before he can save her, Captain Quell and his men arrest him for falsifying his credentials. When the 66 seconds are up, they find that one of the Captain's men has died. The Captain, realizing the Doctor was right, releases him.

 

The Doctor begins to question what is really happening on the train, recognizing that most of the passengers are scientific experts and demands to know why. The train suddenly stops in space, and the illusion of the original Orient Express and several of the passengers disperses, revealing they are in a laboratory. Gus tells them they are now to study the attacks of the force behind the attacks so that they can reverse engineer whatever power it has; Professor Moorhouse soon is the next victim, and he stammers out a few details of the Foretold before he dies. The Doctor contacts Clara, who has discovered that the sarcophagus is meant as a containment unit for whatever the force is, and that this is not the first attempt by whomever is controlling events to discover the nature of the force, having gone through and lost ships and crews previously, in some cases, purposely killing them due to poor performance. Gus forces the Doctor to end the call and return to work when it expels the air from the kitchen car, killing the kitchen staff and threatening to kill more.

 

The Doctor and Perkins discover that the past victims were all suffering from various medical conditions and the Foretold is targeting the weakest. Captain Quell reveals he suffers from wartime post-traumatic stress disorder and soon sees the mummy; providing enough information to the others before he dies. The Doctor and Perkins identify that Foretold drains the victim's energy through phase shifting, a process that takes just over a minute to complete. Perkins identifies the next likely victim to be Maisie, due to her trauma over losing her grandmother, and the Doctor tells Clara to bring her to the lab, having Gus unlock the storage door. On the way there, Clara sees that the TARDIS is protected by a force field, and when she talks to the Doctor about this, she realizes that Gus must know about the Doctor and his Time Lord nature to create the field. The Doctor is forced to admit that Gus had been trying to bring him here to help for some time, and Clara accuses the Doctor of taking her into a dangerous situation again. At this point, Maisie sees the Foretold, and the Doctor absorbs some of her memories as to be able to trick the mummy into thinking he is the intended victim. Within the 66 seconds, the Doctor is able to realize the Foretold is a former soldier from a war thousands of centuries ago, having been modified with phase-shifting camouflage to be an assassin. The Doctor offers their surrender to the Foretold, halting its attack and appearing before everyone before saluting the Doctor and then disintegrates into dust with only its phase-shifting device remaining. Gus congratulates the passengers on their success and then begins to evacuate all the air aboard the train, their services no longer necessary. The Doctor takes the device and rewires it as a short-range teleporter, rescuing all the remaining passengers on the train to his TARDIS before the train blows up when the Doctor made an attempt to hack Gus to find out who is behind all of this.

 

On a nearby planet, regaining consciousness while told what occurred, Clara has a brief discussion on the nature of her relationship to the Doctor. On the TARDIS, the Doctor offers Perkins a job to maintain the time machine, but he politely refuses. Clara takes a call from Danny, who is expecting that she will finally end her trips with the Doctor, but when she ends the call, has reconsidered her earlier decision and wants to continue her travels with the Doctor.

 

Continuity[edit]

The question "Are you my mummy?" is a reference to the Ninth Doctor episodes "The Empty Child"/"The Doctor Dances". The Tenth Doctor repeats the question in "The Poison Sky".[1]

 

The Doctor confesses to Clara that the mysterious force which enticed him to the Orient Express "even phoned the TARDIS once", recalling the last line from "The Big Bang", when the Eleventh Doctor, answering the TARDIS phone, replies "an Egyptian goddess loose on the Orient Express, in space?"[1]

 

The Twelfth Doctor is shown offering jelly babies to Professor Moorhouse, a tradition associated with past Doctors, particularly Tom Baker's Fourth Doctor.[1]

 

Danny Pink reminds Clara that the Doctor is "not your boyfriend." This is what the Doctor himself tells her at the end of "Deep Breath".[2]

 

Production[edit]

Filming[edit]

The read through for Mummy on the Orient Express took place on 1 May 2014. Shooting started on 20 May and finished on 10 June. The episode was primarily studio-based in filming, however the scene with the Doctor and Clara on the planet was shot in Limpert Bay in the Vale of Glamorgan.[1]

 

Casting[edit]

Christopher Villers previously appeared in the classic serial The King's Demons, and Janet Henfrey previously appeared in The Curse of Fenric. Frank Skinner considers himself a die-hard Who fan, and previously had appeared in the special The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot.[1]

 

Broadcast and reception[edit]

Overnight ratings show that this episode was seen by 5.08 million, a 22.1% share of the available audience and third for the night.[3]

 

Critical reception[edit]

"Mummy on the Orient Express" received very positive reviews. Guardian columnist Dan Martin was positive towards the episode and praised the Mummy, saying, "At last, a proper new scary monster to get us behind the sofa," something he felt had been lacking so far in the current series. He called it "a triumph of production design matched with imagination," and praised first time writer for the show Jamie Matheson for blending "cool monsters" and "awkward Tardis dynamics." He did however feel that the reveal of the monster's true nature was "underwhelming."[4] Ben Lawrence of The Telegraph was positive toward the episode and awarded it four stars out of five. He praised the style of the episode and its ability to make the viewer a part of it: "as a viewer you felt hemmed in by the train’s narrow corridors, stalked by an invisible creature that could strike at any moment." He believed that Skinner "started well," but more impressive was David Bamber, describing his performance as "poignant," and praised the development of the relationship between the Doctor and Clara.[5]

 

Morgan Jeffrey of Digital Spy praised the episode, giving it four stars out of five. He praised the chemistry of the two leads: "Capaldi and Coleman remain an utterly magnetic coupling on-screen," citing the final Tardis scene and the beach scene as "magic." He felt that the main problem of the episode was the decision to keep the two apart. He was positive towards Frank Skinner's "genuine love for Doctor Who", which meant he was "practically beaming throughout," and called him "an endearing replacement" for Clara in the episode. He thought that the episode, like the previous one, had a Hinchcliffe vibe to, and that "'Mummy' is a joy, with excellent production design and a roster of perfectly-pitched performances all adding up to create an enchanting atmosphere," and believed it had a "wonderful mood," which felt like "vintage Doctor Who."[6] Tim Liew, writing for Metro, was positive towards "Mummy", calling it "another strong standalone story. ... [The] period costumes helped create a distinctive look and feel, the mummified Foretold was well realised and the repeated use of the 66-second countdown clock injected a real sense of pace and jeopardy."[7] Neela Debnath of The Independent praised the guest stars, Foxes and Skinner, saying Skinner "acts his socks off." She remained critical of Clara, arguing that "her poorly conceived and written character fails to charm," despite praising Coleman's acting. Overall she felt that the episode was "a delightful outer-space romp."[8]

 

Forbes gave a positive review. They praised the "fantastic core principle" to the plot. However, they were disappointed with the run time, believing it would've benefited from another five minutes, citing some areas that could've been explored further, particularly the escape from the train. They praised the cast and the lead, reflecting that "The Doctor infects Capaldi’s performance. Drawing on his love for the series I could see the influences of many of the previous actors to take on the role," and praised the development of the Doctor and Clara's relationship. They called Mathieson's script "an impressive debut."[9] The A.V. Club also heavily praised the episode, awarding it another perfect "A" grade. They said, "When the time comes to write the final accounting of the 12th Doctor—and hopefully we won’t need to do that for a little while yet—'Mummy On The Orient Express' will loom large. This episode is a triumph for Peter Capaldi." They added that it was "the latest superb episode in a strong season" and that "Peter Capaldi’s performance is enough by itself to elevate this story to classic status, but Jamie Mathieson’s script provides him excellent support".[10]

Synopsis

The end of the world is nigh. That’s what everybody is seeing in their nightmares. That’s why they are congregating in Liverpool for the party to end all parties, hosted by Rufus Stone, a celebrity turned doomsday prophet. He claims he’s the only one who can save them when the day of judgement comes. Because he’s on the side of the angels.

The Doctor, Ace and Hector arrive to find the city in the grip of apocalypse fever. There are lights in the sky, earthquakes and power cuts. The Doctor is determined to investigate, while Ace is more concerned about finding a way of restoring Hector’s lost memories.

Synopsis

Athens, 421 BC. An ancient civilisation of philosophers and poets and the birthplace of theatre. The Doctor has decided to show Ace and Hector how it all began, with help from the great comedian Aristophanes.

But life in Athens is no laughing matter. There’s the ever-present threat of invasion from the Spartan horde. The plague that turns people into the walking dead. The slavery. The tyrannical rule of the paranoid, malicious Cleon and his network of informers. And the giant flying beetle with knives for wings that stalks the city streets at night.

What Athens needs is a hero. And who better to be a hero in ancient Greece than a man called Hector?

Synopsis

The Doctor thought he had defeated the microscopic Nucleus of the Swarm in his fourth incarnation. He was wrong. It survived within the TARDIS, and now it has brought it back to Titan Base, back to the point of its own creation. It has a plan that spans centuries, a plan which will result in the Nucleus becoming more powerful – and larger – than ever before.

To defeat it, the Doctor, Ace and Hex must confront the Nucleus within its new domain - the computer-world of the Hypernet, the information network crucial to the survival of the human empire. But if the Doctor is to save the day, he has to risk everything and everyone he holds dear...

TDP 416: Kill the Moon

#DoctorWho #KillTheMoon #Podcast #TinDogPodcast

 

"Kill the Moon" is the seventh episode of the eighth series of the British science fiction television programme Doctor Who, written by Peter Harness, and directed by Paul Wilmshurst.[3] The episode stars Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman, with Hermione Norris guest starring.[4][5][6]

A preview clip from the episode was shown when Peter Capaldi was a guestThe Graham Norton Show on 26 September 2014.[7] A 10-second trailer was released on 29 September 2014.[8]

 

 

Production[edit]

Writing[edit]

The episode was originally written for Matt Smith's Eleventh Doctor. An earlyworking title for the episode was "Return to Sarn", however, this was intended to be misleading. While briefing Harness on how to write the script, executive producer Steven Moffat told him to "Hinchcliffe the shit out of it for the first half", meaning, essentially, to make it frightening. This was in reference to Philip Hinchcliffe, who produced Doctor Who from 1974–77.[9] Moffat called the script "intense and emotional".[10] Harness has said that the episode will see a large change for the show. "I still don’t know how people will take it. I’m in this kind of limbo now waiting for people to see it, and I’ve no idea, really I do not know how it is going to go down."[11]

Filming[edit]

Filming for the episode took place in Lanzarote, near the Volcán del Cuervo (Raven's Volcano[12]) in Timanfaya National Park.[13] The last episode to be filmed there was 1984's Fifth Doctor serial Planet of Fire.[14] Filming took place on 12–13 May,[15] while the park was closed to visitors,[16] with locals reporting that “they’ve erected a huge marquee, have trailers, toilets and a van.”[13] Filming also took place at the Cardiff Bay Business Centre in Splott and St Illtyd's College in Cardiff on 20 May,[15] and at Aberavon Beach in Port Talbot on 21 May.[17][18][19][20][21][22]

Casting[edit]

Tony Osoba previously appeared in the classic serials Destiny of the Daleks and Dragonfire.

TDP 410: Listen

#DoctorWho #Listen #Review #TinDogPodcast #Podcast

 

reprinted from wiki

 

"Listen" is the fourth episode of the eighth series of the British science fiction television programme Doctor Who, written by Steven Moffat and directed by Douglas Mackinnon.[4]The episode stars Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman, with Samuel Anderson guest starring.[1]

The BBC released a 10 second trailer for the episode on 8 September 2014,[5] followed by a 25 second clip on 12 September 2014.[6]

Plot

Clara Oswald meets with fellow Coal Hill teacher Danny Pink for their first date. However, things take a turn for the worst when the subject of his time serving in the army comes up, and they both unintentionally offend the other with their lack of understanding. On her return home, she discovers the Doctor waiting for her, needing her help. Entering the TARDIS, he questions whether every living being has a constant companion, using the example of the 'dream' all children have in which a hand grabs them from under the bed at night. Clara initially dismisses this, but agrees to return to her childhood so they can investigate. She uses the TARDIS' telepathic link to try and lock on to the event, but, when her mind strays to Danny, they end up in a children's home in Gloucester, where Clara is shocked to meet Rupert Pink; Danny, as a child, before he changed his name.

Clara tries to convince Rupert that there is nothing under his bed, as he sits away from it in fear. They crawl underneath, only for something to sit on the bed above them, despite Rupert claiming that no one else has entered the room while they have been talking. On emerging, they discover a figure underneath Rupert's blankets, and the Doctor, who suddenly appears, demands that they turn away from it and promise that they will not look at it. They do so, and it vanishes out of the door. Inspiring Rupert to be fearless using toy soldiers underneath his bed as 'protection', she unintentionally inspires his later name, Danny, and his career choice, when Rupert names the lead soldier Dan.

Feeling guilty about the way she left her date, Clara returns to the restaurant, moments after her former self left. She strikes up a bond with Danny, but when she accidentally calls him Rupert, he becomes suspicious, questioning how she knows his former name, and accuses her of deliberately mocking him. He storms out as a figure in a spacesuit draws Clara back into the TARDIS. Originally thinking the suited character to be the Doctor, Clara is rocked when he removes his helmet to reveal a man striking a strong resemblance to Danny, who the Doctor reveals to be 'Orson Pink', one of Earth's first time travellers, having originally come from a 100 years in Clara's future. The Doctor has picked him up from the end of the universe, where he had become stranded during his travels. It is also suggested that Orson is descended from a time traveller, and possesses the soldier Clara gave a young Danny earlier in the episode; suggesting that Danny and Clara may be Orson's great grandparents.

The Doctor takes Clara and Orson back to Orson's ship, and shows her a view of the last planet in existence, where Orson had become stranded, and reveals that something the Doctor believes to be the entity, the fearsome constant companion the Doctor is investigating, is attempting to enter through a locked door on the spacecraft. The Doctor unlocks the door and forces Clara and Orson back into the TARDIS while he confronts the entity. The spacecraft's air bubble disperses just as the Doctor spies the creature, and he is rescued at the last moment by Orson. As he is out cold, Clara has to use the TARDIS' telepathic connection again to escape the end of the universe and the creatures trying to enter.

Exiting the TARDIS, which is in an unknown location, Clara finds herself in an old barn, where a child is in bed, crying under the covers. Clara approaches the child, but is forced to hide under the bed when two people enter and try and coax the child out of the room. Overhearing their conversation, she realises that the child is in fact the Doctor, and his guardians are trying to force him to be a soldier as they do not believe him to have the potential of a true Time Lord. When they leave, Clara accidentally grabs the Doctor's leg when he tries to get out of bed, and she realises she is the monster under the Doctor's bed. After convincing the young Doctor to return to sleep, she tells him of his valiant future, and reveals that one day he will return to the barn to save his people (as seen in "Day of the Doctor", when the War Doctorgoes to the barn with the intention of ending the Last Great Time War). Clara then returns to the TARDIS and makes the Doctor promise never to return to this place, leaving him unaware of what she has done.

Returning Clara to Earth and Orson to his original time period, the Doctor decides there is no such creature under the bed, and Rupert Pink's 'monster' was in fact another child at the children's home scaring him. Clara, meanwhile, goes to Danny's home, where they apologise for the hurtful things they said and proceed to kiss.

Continuity[edit]

Samuel Anderson makes his second appearance as Danny Pink, a troubled war veteran turned Maths teacher and Clara's love interest. He also portrays his descendant, Orson Pink, the first Earth time traveller. Danny's birth name is revealed to be Rupert, and his reasons for becoming a soldier are explored.

The reasons for the War Doctor choosing an abandoned barn for his activation of 'The Moment' in 2013's "Day of the Doctor" are revealed as Clara visits a young Doctor here and promises him that one day in this barn he will be responsible for saving many lives.

Production[edit]

Writing[edit]

Steven Moffat discussed the episode in an interview, saying: "my impulse starting in that was just the idea, 'What does he do when he’s got nothing [to] do?' Because he’d throw himself off a building if he thought it’d be interesting on the way down ... he’s fascinated by anything. And here he’s with nothing to do, so he just goes out poking things with a stick until something bites it. And I think that’s quite interesting, isn't it? Sort of, there’s a thrill seeker aspect."[7]

Filming[edit]

Filming for the episode took place at the Mimosa restaurant in Mermaid QuayCardiff Bay, on 25 February 2014.[8][9]

Leak[edit]

As part of the series 8 leaks, "Listen" was one of five scripts to leak online from a BBC Worldwide server in Miami.[10] This was followed on 23 August 2014 by the leak of the episode itself - missing ADR and visual effects.[11] The leak followed similar leaks of the preceding episodes "Deep Breath", "Into the Dalek", and "Robot of Sherwood", and the following episode "Time Heist".[12]

"Robot of Sherwood" is the third episode of the eighth series of the British science fictiontelevision programme Doctor Who, written byMark Gatiss and directed by Paul Murphy, [3]and first broadcast on 6 September 2014. The episode stars Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman, with Tom Riley[4] and Ben Millerguest-starring.[5][6][7]

The BBC released a 30 second trailer for the episode on 1 September 2014.[8]

 

 

Production[edit]

Writing[edit]

In an interview with Doctor Who Magazine, writer Mark Gatiss stated that his intent with the episode was "to do the Doctor and Robin Hoodin 45 minutes". He went on to state: "The premise is inherently funny, but I didn’t think of it as the funnier episode when I was doing it. It’s still asking big questions. But it’s definitely more frivolous.”[9]

Filming[edit]

Filming for the episode took place in Fforest Fawr on 15 April 2014,[10][11] and later atCaerphilly Castle on 17 April.[12]

On 4 September 2014, the BBC announced that a beheading scene from the episode's climatic battle had been edited out due to the recent murders of James Foley and Steven Sotloff by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.[13][14][15][16][17][18]

Episode leak[edit]

The script for the episode was one of five scripts leaked online from a BBC Worldwide server in Miami, where they had been sent in preparation for broadcast in Latin America.[19]

On 18 August 2014, a rough version of the episode was leaked online. The leaked version was black-and-white and did not contain any visual effects or music. This followed the leaks of the previous two episodes, "Deep Breath" and "Into the Dalek". The BBC released a statement urging fans not to spread spoilers from the pirated copy.[20]

Reception[edit]

The critical reception of the episode was largely positive. Simon Brew of Den of Geekcommended the lightness of the episode, in contrast to Capaldi's opening two episodes. He writes that "Robot of Sherwood" is "the kind of Doctor Who you reach for when you've got a spare hour, and just want to get a great big smile on your face".[21]

TDP 407: Into the Dalek

#tindogpodcast #doctorwho notes from wiki

 

"Into the Dalek" is the second episode of theeighth series of the British science fictiontelevision programme Doctor Who, written byPhil Ford and Steven Moffat, directed by Ben Wheatley, and first broadcast on 30 August 2014. Ford has written previously for the show, co-writing 2009's "The Waters of Mars". Starring Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman the episode also introduces Samuel Anderson as Danny Pink. It was watched by 5.2 million viewers in the UK on its initial transmission, according to unofficial overnight figures, taking a 24.7 per cent share of the entire TV audience and making it the second-highest rated programme of the evening.[2]

 

 

Plot[edit]

The Doctor saves Journey Blue, a rebel fighter, from her space shuttle, which is under attack by Daleks, but is unable to save her brother, who has already perished. He returns her to the rebel space station, codenamedAristotle. He is greeted by Journey's uncle, Colonel Morgan Blue, who thanks the Doctor for saving his niece, but declares that he must be killed for fear he is a Dalek spy. However, Journey declares that, as he is a 'doctor', the Doctor can help their patient, which is revealed to be a war-torn Dalek they found floating through space who has appeared to have turned good.

Meanwhile, Danny Pink, a veteran of the war in Afghanistan with emotional scars from his past, begins teaching Maths at Coal Hill School. In the staff room, Danny is introduced toClara Oswald, who invites him to a leaving do for one of their colleagues. Feeling awkward due to an obvious connection between them, Danny declines, but when Clara finds him in his classroom despairing over his actions, she invites him out for a drink. He agrees, and she returns to her office, where she comes face to face with the Doctor, who she has not seen since he left her three weeks ago when he went for coffee in Glasgow (as seen in "Deep Breath"). He tells her that he needs her help, and asks whether he is a good man. Clara replies that she does not know.

They return to the Aristotle, where Colonel Blue details plans to miniaturize the Doctor, Clara, Journey and two rebel soldiers, Ross and Gretchen, so they can enter the broken Dalek, nicknamed Rusty, to see if they can determine what is making it good. Entering through the eyepiece, they begin exploring the upper part of the Dalek. Ross shoots a griphook into the floor, and the Dalek releases antibodies, much like in the human body, which incinerate him. The Doctor, Clara, Journey and Gretchen flee to Rusty's waste centre, where the Doctor correctly guesses that nothing will be guarded. From there, they head to an area of high radiation, with Rusty speaking to the Doctor on the beauty it had witnessed in the galaxy, including the creation of a star, and that the Daleks must be destroyed for wanting to destroy that beauty. At the Dalek's power center, the Doctor discovers a large crack, which he deduces is causing the malfunction within the Dalek. He uses his sonic screwdriver to seal the crack, fixing Rusty in the process. However, this causes it to return to its normal thinking pattern, losing the good within it.

Colonel Blue and his men are helpless as the Dalek breaks its chains and begins exterminating the rebels, determined to aid the Dalek cause. It contacts the Dalek main ship, which releases more Daleks with the aim of destroying the rebel station. Inside Rusty, Clara convinces the Doctor to try to reawaken the good side of the Dalek. They split up, with Clara and Journey heading to reawaken memories of the Dalek's past now being suppressed, and the Doctor heading to the Dalek's consciousness. Gretchen sacrifices herself to set up another griphook to get Clara and Journey to the mind of Rusty, but is destroyed by antibodies. She awakens after her death in "Heaven" and is greeted by a mysterious woman named Missy, the same woman that greeted the Half-Face Man ("Deep Breath").

Clara manages to awaken Rusty's memory of him seeing the creation of a star, while the Doctor manages to link his mind to Rusty's consciousness, reminding him of the destruction the Daleks caused. However, Rusty associates with the Doctor's own deeply-rooted hatred towards the Dalek race, and he exterminates his fellow Daleks as they attempt to destroy the rebel station. On leaving the inside of the Dalek, the Doctor parts with Rusty, upset that the Dalek saw only darkness within him and wishing for a 'victory' in creating a good Dalek. Rusty's response is that the Doctor himself is a good Dalek, while Rusty is not. The Doctor vows to continue with his mission to destroy the Daleks. The Doctor and Clara depart. Journey asks to come with them, but the Doctor declines, telling her that though she has a kind heart, he wishes that she hadn't been a soldier.

The Doctor returns Clara to her office, moments after she left. Clara tells the Doctor that, although she is still unsure of whether he is a good man, she knows his intentions are well meant. On leaving, she bumps into Danny, who says he's glad that his being an ex-soldier hasn't put her off. Remembering the Doctor's treatment of Journey, Clara tells Danny that she is not so judgemental.

Continuity[edit]

The Doctor refers to his first encounter with the Daleks on Skaro in The Daleks and his first incarnation's initial lack of altruism prior to meeting them. Rusty's assessment that the Doctor "is a good Dalek" echoes the lone Dalek's comment to the Ninth Doctor in "Dalek" that he "would make a good Dalek." The Doctor's loathing for the Daleks manifests in "Dalek", "Victory of the Daleks", and "Asylum of the Daleks".

Promotion[edit]

Two clips from the episode were featured alongside an interview with Peter Capaldi onBBC News on 7 August 2014.[3] On 25 August, a ten-second clip was released showing the Doctor's reunion with a lone Dalek.[4] The same clips were re-released on 27 August in slightly extended form.[5][6]

Reception[edit]

Into the Dalek was watched by 5.2 million viewers in the UK upon its initial transmission, according to unofficial overnight figures, taking a 24.7 per cent share of the entire TV audience and making it the second-highest rated programme of the evening.[2]

Into the Dalek received highly positive reviews. Simon Brew of Den of Geek wrote that the episode "stakes one hell of a claim...as a series highlight," and that it was "a really good, really entertaining episode." They noticed the similarities to 2005's "Dalek". He was pleased with the new characterization for Clara and praised Capaldi saying the episode is when we fully get to see Capaldi as the Doctor. They called the episode "one of the most downright enjoyable episodes of Who in the past year or two."[7] The Guardian also noticed similarities to "Dalek" and found the episode to be "better than we might have expected." They praised the guest cast, specifically the character development of Zawe Ashton's character in such a short space of time. They praised Ben Wheatley for "evoking a genuine sense of claustrophobic menace," and felt the episode "works fantastically well."[8] Terry Ramsey of The Telegraph gave the episode four stars out of five praising Capaldi, "It may be hard to believe in a good Dalek, but after Saturday night it is easy to believe this will be a good Doctor."[9] IGN also heavily praised the episode, particularly Ford and Moffat's script, stating that it "evolves along with its characters". They ultimately labelled the episode "an entertaining new take on a classic old foe", awarding it 8.4 out of 10.

Neela Debnath of The Independent was highly positive of the episode, calling it "A classic sci-fi adventure with all the spectacle of a blockbuster." She praised the new dynamic between The Doctor and Clara as "just what we needed...it only took a whole series but finally she (Clara) has become the companion we were hoping for." Overall she called it "a strong installment," and "finally, a Dalek story that viewers could really get their teeth into."[10] Tim Liew of Metro gave a positive review saying, "I rather enjoyed this episode." He was also positive about the character development for Jenna Coleman and also saw the similarities to Dalek, "the tight focus on a single enemy makes this the most menacing Dalek episode since Dalek."[11] Morgan Jeffery of Digital Spy also felt the episode was an improvement over the series' opening episode and that it "felt like the proper debut of our new lead," and "felt like his (Capaldi) first real chance to spread his wings with the last vestiges of the Matt Smith era discarded."He felt the dynamic between Capaldi and Coleman was very similar to that of Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper. He praised Coleman's acting and chemistry with Samuel Anderson in only short teaser scenes. He praised Ford's script, "The 'romantic comedy' portion of 'Into the Dalek' is utterly charming with strong use made of comedic cross-cutting." He was positive on the new spin taken on the Daleks. He called the episode "smart, stirring and visually spectacular," and ended with "the Daleks may never change but both our favourite sci-fi series and its unique lead character seem to be undergoing a transformation and I'm fascinated to see where it leads us." He gave the episode four stars out of five.[12]

The episode received an Audience Appreciation Index score of 84, considered Excellent.[13]It was much better received by the fanbase than the previous episode was.[14]

Leak[edit]

As part of the series 8 leaks, both the script and a rough cut of the episode were leaked online from a server in Miami.[15][16] Despite the fact that the initial online copy of the episode contained a glitch that prevented people from downloading it, a workable version found its way online by the second week of August 2014.[17]

The Doctor awakens to hear the dinosaur's pleas for help before it spontaneously combusts. The Doctor joins Clara and the Paternoster Gang at the river and learns from Vastra that this is not the first incident of spontaneous combustion recently. The Doctor spots an unfazed man across the river and jumps in to investigate. Clara returns home with the others to start their own investigations, hoping they will cross the Doctor's path.

The Doctor roams back streets for answers the next morning, questioning how his body chooses a new face during regeneration. Both Clara and the Doctor find a message reading "The Impossible Girl" in a newspaper, directing them to a restaurant where they reunite but learn that neither planted the message for the other, as they had both assumed. They realise that the room is filled with robots to prevent them leaving. They are descended into a lair where they see the man from the river surrounded by other idle, human-like robots. The Doctor surmises the man is a long-lived cyborg, but in the unusual sense that it is a robot trying to make himself human by replacing his parts with biological ones taken from the victims of spontaneous combustion, including the dinosaur.

The Doctor leaves Clara as the robots and the cyborg begin to awaken after escaping himself. Recalling his earlier advice, Clara holds her breath to hide herself from the robots, but she is soon captured and taken to the cyborg. He states that he is trying to reach the "promised land" by prolonging his life via parts replacements and questions her on the Doctor's whereabouts. The Doctor returns with the Paternoster Gang to fight the robots with Clara whilst the Doctor chases the cyborg back to the restaurant. The cyborg releases a hot-air balloon made of human skin, lifting the restaurant into the sky with him and the Doctor inside. The Doctor interrogates the cyborg, who reveals that he and parts of the restaurant are from the SS Marie Antoinette, the sister ship to the SS Madame de Pompadour ("The Girl in the Fireplace"). The Doctor warns the cyborg that he will either have to kill himself, or he will kill him to protect the humans. Moments later, the cyborg falls from the balloon and is impaled on the spire of Big Ben. Clara and the Paternoster Gang see the other robots go lifeless after his death.

After regrouping, Clara finds that the Doctor and the TARDIS have vanished. Vastra assures her that the Doctor will return, pointing out that Clara as the person that knows the Doctor the best is already prepared to leave. The Doctor reappears, planning to take Clara home, but instead arrives in Glasgow, where a phone call from the Eleventh Doctor to Clara moments before the regeneration from his perspective encourages her to stay.

In the epilogue, the cyborg awakens in a beautiful garden, and meets Missy, a mysterious woman who claims the Doctor as her boyfriend. She tells him that he has reached the promised land at last.

Continuity

Towards the end of the story, the Doctor speculates on the identity of the person that wrote the Impossible Girl newspaper article; the Doctor postulates if this person was the same one that gave Clara the number for the TARDIS phone on the claim it was a computer help line as shown in "The Bells of Saint John".[5] The Doctor, while confused about his new look, recalls how it appears similar to another that he's seen. The Tenth Doctor met a man named Caecilius in "The Fires of Pompeii", played by Capaldi.[6] The call from the Eleventh Doctor to Clara is shown from the Eleventh Doctor's perspective from his final moments before regeneration on the planet Trenzalore, which reused some footage from "The Time of the Doctor" and included new footage with a surprise cameo by Matt Smith.[7] The closing dialogue between Clara and the Doctor about chips, and the Doctor's inability to pay for them, recalls a similar exchange between the Ninth Doctor and Rose Tyler at the conclusion of "The End of the World".[8]

Production

Filming

Matt Smith's cameo as the Eleventh Doctor was filmed on 5 October 2013, the last day of shooting for "The Time of the Doctor".[9] Moffat had written Smith's scene prior to the rest of the episode.[10] The readthrough for the episode was held on 17 December 2013,[9] and shooting began at the Maltings in Cardiff on 7 January 2014.[11] Shooting later took place at Mount Stuart Square on the 13th,[12] Scenes were also filmed on Queen Street and on the 28th.[13] The shoot finished on 18 February 2014.[9]

Promotion

Steven Moffat has said that this episode would be a "big introduction" for Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor. He said that there will be "plenty of action and nonsense and jeopardy, as there ever is in Doctor Who."[14]

On 11 August 2014 a 30 second trailer for the episode was released on Twitter.[15][16]

Cast notes

Brian Miller, who plays the tramp Barney, was the husband of Elisabeth Sladen who portrayed long-time companion Sarah Jane Smith. He had previously appeared inSnakedance in Season 20, as well as playing Harry Sowersby in The Mad Woman in the Attic, an episode of The Sarah Jane Adventures, and providing Dalek voices for bothResurrection of the Daleks and Remembrance of the Daleks.

Broadcast and reception

Pre-broadcast leak

On 6 July 2014, the scripts for the first five episodes of the series (including "Deep Breath") were inadvertently leaked online from BBC Worldwide's Latin America headquarters, prompting a plea from BBC Worldwide to keep the storylines of the five episodes secret.[17]Also leaked was a black-and-white rough cut of "Deep Breath", missing most of the visual effects but otherwise mostly complete.[18] The BBC blamed the leak on the fact that the files had been stored on a publicly accessible server in its new Miami-based headquarters.[19] Steven Moffat, speaking at the London Film and Comic Con, called the leak "horrible, miserable and upsetting".[20]

Television

The episode was a simulcast in the United Kingdom and many other countries on 23 August 2014, and was broadcast later that same day in other locations such as on BBC America. On 31 August 2014, the episode was broadcast on Prime TV in New Zealand.[3][21]

Cinemas

The episode had its world premiere in Cardiff on 7 August 2014 as part of the series 8 world tour.[22][23] As part of the tour, advance screenings were also held at other destinations on the tour.[24][25][26] As with "The Day of the Doctor", "Deep Breath" received a worldwide cinema release at participating cinemas on 23 August 2014.[27] The episode received a midnight screening in 12 cities across the United States on 23 August, and a larger showing in 550 cinemas on 25 August.[28][27] The cinema screenings of the episode were accompanied by a five minute prequel.[29]

Ratings

Upon airing in its 7.50pm timeslot, the "Deep Breath" simulcast entertained an average audience of 6.79 million in the United Kingdom. The episode reached a peak of 6.96 million viewers, watched by nearly a third of all viewers on the evening of broadcast with a 32.5% audience share.[30] The final ratings for the week, which include BBC iPlayer viewers and others who watched the programme within a week of its transmission, showed 9.17 million viewers, making it the second highest rated programme for the week on British television.[31]

In the United States, the premiere airing on BBC America had an audience of 2.2 million viewers, the highest Saturday ratings for the network and just under the highest viewership from the "The Day of the Doctor" special, and a significant increase from the 1.5 million that had watched the Series 7 premiere in 2012.[32] In Australia, the episode had a total of 858,000 viewers on ABC: 148,000 watched a simulcast at 4:30am, and 710,000 watched a primetime replay at 7:40pm.[33]

Critical reception

The episode received positive reviews, with many critics praising Moffat's script, the introduction and stylisation of the new Doctor, and the performances of Capaldi and Coleman.

The Guardian responded well to the episode, labelling Capaldi's performance as "intimidating, bold and unsettling", and praising Ben Wheatley's direction in the episode's tenser moments, calling it "the stuff of true terror and wonderment".[34] Matt Smith's cameo as the Eleventh Doctor was criticised by The Mirror. However, it ultimately labelled the episode "impeccable" and stating that Capaldi "has all the hallmarks of a great Doctor".[35]

Brian Lowry of Variety praised Moffat's script, stating that it "emphasizes storyline continuity and easing faithful viewers into the regeneration transition" and closed his review by saying "It’s a skillful tonal balance that defines the best of “Doctor Who,” and exemplifies the ethos that keeps the series going strong, nodding to the past with all eyes on the future".[36]David Wiegand of San Francisco Chronicle heavily praised the episode, particularly Moffat's writing, saying that his script "masterfully manipulates audience expectation". He ultimately awarded the episode a perfect 4/4 stars.[37]

However, not all reviews were positive. Forbes panned the story as "strangely recessive, unheroic, [and] dull" calling both Capaldi and Coleman's characters "insipid".[38]

Home media

"Deep Breath" will receive a standalone DVD and Blu-ray release in the United Kingdom on 8 September 2014,[39] the United States on 9 September,[40] and Australia on 10 September.[41] Thereafter, it will be released in the Complete Eighth Series DVD and Blu-ray boxset in the United Kingdom on 17 November 2014,[42] and Australia on 19 November.[43

As well as for the Season 23 (Trial of a Time Lord) arrangement of the Doctor Who theme tune. His music has also featured in episodes of The Simpsons, Red Dwarf and Eerie Indiana, and the feature films Holy Man and Kevin & Perry Go Large. Many thanks to Dominic for agreeing to come along.

Derrick Sherwin

Derrick SherwinDerrick Sherwin is the last surviving producer of 60s Doctor Who and one of only two surviving producers from the classic series as a whole. Derrick joined Doctor Who as script editor in which capacity he worked on five consecutive stories between The Web of Fear and The Mind Robber. He then wrote The Invasion, acted as de facto assistant producer on two further stories before resuming script editor duties on The Space Pirates, then succeeding Peter Bryant as producer for The War Games and Spearhead From Space.

Derrick’s influence on Doctor Who has been profound and persists until today – he cast Jon Pertwee as the Third Doctor, invented UNIT and developed the Brigadier, invented the Time Lords and came up with the idea of exiling the Doctor to Earth.

Peter Davison

Peter DavisonPeter Davison is best known for his roles as the fifth incarnation of the Doctor in Doctor Who and Tristan Farnon in James Herriot’s All Creatures Great and Small.

Davison was born Peter Moffett in Streatham, London. The family then moved to Knaphill in Surrey at which time he became a member of an amateur theatre company called the Byfleet Players

Davison studied at the Central School of Speech and Drama. His first job was as an actor and assistant stage manager at the Nottingham Playhouse. He chose the stage name Peter Davison to avoid confusion with the actor and director Peter Moffatt, with whom Davison later worked.

His first television work was in a 1975 episode of the children’s science fiction television programme The Tomorrow People In 1978, Davison’s performance as the youthfully mischievous Tristan Farnon in All Creatures Great and Small made him a household name. Davison has said that he was mainly cast in the role because he looked as if he could be Robert Hardy’s younger brother.

Davison subsequently appeared alongside Dickinson as the Dish of the Day in the television version of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (1981), whose producers considered it humorous for an actor known for playing a veterinary surgeon to appear as a cow.

In 1981, Davison signed a contract to play the Doctor for three years, succeeding Tom Baker (the Fourth Doctor) and, at age 29, was at the time the youngest actor to have played the lead role.

TDP 392: Big Finish Fourth Doctor - The Last of the Colophon 3.5

@bigfinish #tindogpodcast #doctorwho

 

The planet Colophos is a dead world. Nothing but dust and rubble – and the ruins of a once-great civilisation. But is it really as dead as it appears? When the Doctor and Leela land, joined by the crew of the Oligarch survey ship, it’s not long before they receive a communication from one of the ruins. A communication from Astaroth Morax, the last of the Colophon. Attended by a sadistic robot nurse, Morax is in a wheelchair and bound in bandages to conceal his terrible injuries. But is he really as powerless as he seems? What became of the rest of his race – and why didn’t he die with them?

Entering his lair, the Doctor uncovers a terrifying secret…

TDP 391: Big Finish 4th Doctor - 3.04. THE EVIL ONE

@bigfinish #doctorwho #tindogpodcast 

 

The TARDIS lands in the cargo hold of luxury space cruiser the Moray Rose. The crew and passengers are missing. The agents of Inter-Galaxy Insurance are determined to find out what’s happened and the shadowy Interplanetary Police Inspector Efendi is showing a very particular interest.

Caught up in all this, the Doctor and Leela find themselves facing a horde of metal mantis-like aliens. But throughout it all, Leela is haunted by terrible nightmares and the dawning realization that everything she knows about her life is a lie.

TDP 386: Paul Sprag 1975 - 2014

FROM THE BIG FINISH NEWSD PAGE

PAUL SPRAGG

9 May 2014

It is with the deepest regret that we have to inform you of the death of our dear friend and highly valued colleague, Paul Spragg.

All of us here at Big Finish feel utterly devastated by the news.

Paul had worked with us for over five years and had become an essential member of the team. We will remember him for his tireless diligence, his total dedication to his job, his cheery nature, his hilarious sense of humour and his kindness and friendship. Our listeners will perhaps know him best for his BF forum contributions, all the help he gave customers via the enquires@bigfinish address and his many, many podcast appearances.

He had relatively recently become editor of Vortex magazine (a promotion he was given 'live' on a podcast).

His work behind the scenes on contracts, script distribution, proof-reading, cover layout, studio management, CD Extra interviews, the website and so much more made him vital to the company's operations.

Paul's partner, Natalie Hayden, issued a statement on Facebook today.

'To all of you that I didn't manage to text yesterday (I couldn't get round to everyone): there is sad news that Paul died yesterday suddenly. He'd been unwell for a few weeks, and was due to go to the GPs yesterday. But he was too breathless to be able to make it in to the surgery, so they phoned him instead. They arranged for a non-emergency ambulance to come and take him to hospital so he could be monitored. When they arrived, he was talking to them normally, and then had a seizure. He came out of that one, then had another seizure, during which his heart stopped and he stopped breathing. The ambulance crew tried to resuscitate him for two hours at home, and then took him to hospital where they tried for a further half an hour, but couldn't bring him round.'

Our thoughts are with Natalie, who made Paul so happy, and all his family and close friends.

We intend to celebrate and honour Paul's memory. For now, we are in the most terrible shock.

TDP 384: The Crooked Man - 4th Doctor Big Finish 3.3

From the big finish site

Winter at the seaside. The wind blows. The waves crash. People are dying and a strange spindly figure stalks the cold, deserted streets. A typical holiday for the Doctor and Leela in other words.

When they stumble across a grotesque series of murders at the coast, the TARDIS travellers realise the local constabulary is out of its depth. Something supernatural has come to town, something evil. And it all seems to be tied in to a particular young family.

Monsters lurk behind strange doors. Tragic secrets wait to be uncovered. And somewhere, deep within, the Crooked Man sits. He is waiting for you.

TDP 383: White Ghost - 4th Doctor 3.2

From Big Finish Site

A close encounter with a stray missile leads the Doctor to materialise his TARDIS on a planet that hangs in the dark at the edge of the known universe. A planet so dark that it exists in near-permanent night. A planet that enjoys just a single day’s light once every thousand years…

Exactly what happens on the planet in its rare daylight hours – that’s what a geographical survey headed by Senior Tutor Bengel is stationed here to establish. They, the Doctor and Leela are about to discover that when daylight comes, the White Ghosts rise…

So don’t be afraid of the dark. The cover of night is a mercy.

Fortunately, the Universal Monetary Fund, and its slimy representative Sil, are willing to give its President a multi-billion credit bail-out... but terms and conditions apply, and Sil's proposed austerity measures go far beyond mere benefit cuts.

Responding to a distress call, the Doctor and his companion Flip land in a London whose pacified population has been driven largely underground. But the horrors down there in the dark are as nothing to the horrors that await them at ConCorp HQ, where a young biochemist in Sil's employ is working on a permanent solution to the nation's terminal unprofitability.

Because in the final account, Sil plans to make a killing...

WINNER: BEST ONLINE ONLY AUDIO DRAMA (BBC AUDIO DRAMA AWARDS)
People’s history, fantasy and high drama. The winning entry was outstanding in every respect:  a complex, gripping narrative made visible through three-dimensional characters in believable relationships, some fine acting, and a superbly orchestrated soundscape which never overdoes the atmospherics or signposting of changes in time and place. Above all, it manages its historical and fantastical elements seamlessly and, for a brief period, time is suspended for the listener.

Phantasmagoria is a Big Finish Productions audio drama based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. The story was written by Mark Gatiss and stars Peter Davison and Mark Strickson. It was recorded between 26–27 June 1999.

 

 

Synopsis[edit]

The Fifth Doctor and Turlough investigate mysterious goings-on at the Diabola Club in London, 1702, where patrons are disappearing after losing at cards to the mysterious Sir Nikolas Valentine.

Cast[edit]

Plot[edit]

In the opening scene, Jasper Jeake, Quincy Flowers, Edmund Carteret and a fourth person are playing whist and discussing the coming succession of Queen Anne, at the Diabola Club (apparently a similar institution to the Hellfire Club). They argue and Carteret storms off, claiming a desire for adventure and excitement. Carteret is then approached by the sinister Sir Nicholas Valentine (introduced as a scholar, landowner and astrologer), and they agree to play cards. Carteret is later heard leaving alone furtively and acting "very queer". The following morning Valentine is heard to remark that he had good luck at cards the previous evening and inviting a down-at-heel school teacher to play with him the following evening.

Meanwhile, in the Tardis, the Doctor tries to teach Turlough the rules of cricket with the aid of a 1928 Wisden Cricketers' Almanack, and attempts to work out their time location from clues from the house they find themselves in. They are confronted by the home's owner, Dr Samuel Holywell, whom they deduce to be an antiquarian; they explain their presence on the pretext that they were delivering him the Tardis to form part of his collection. While the Doctor distracts Holywell, Turlough notices that some of his books are connected with necromancy. It then becomes apparent that the protagonists are being observed by an advanced intelligence, not from their current era. That evening, while the Doctor and Turlough are being entertained by Holywell, Jeake and Flower are robbed by Major Billy Lovemore (a highwayman) and lose their winnings from the previous night. Later Ned Cotton (a drunken watchman) encounters Holywell's maid, Hannah Fry, outside Holywell's house and assaults her. Hearing her cries, Turlough comes to her rescue. Inside the house, Holywell informs the doctor that he has practical proof of the existence of ghosts and is in regular contact with them. Before Turlough can fight save Hannah from Cotton, they are distracted by a man running towards them as if chased invisible pursuers; he drops dead with a playing card in his hand. The Doctor puts the card into his Almanack. Holywell blames himself, believing the death to be a result of his contact with the ghosts.

In an aside, to the background of screams of torment, Valentine is heard to comment that only a little time remains until his work is complete. Following the altercation between Turlough and Cotton, Turlough has gone missing and the Doctor attempts to locate him. He notes that the dead man has numerous coins and promissory notes in his pockets and Holywell informs him that there have been a number of disappearances like Turlough's recently. Holywell claims that he has been able to contact the spirits of these missing persons through his experiments. Turlough, it becomes apparent, has fallen and injured his head but has been rescued by Flowers and Jeake. Holywell tells the doctor that twenty-four people have gone missing within a mile of the Diabola Club. Meanwhile, Lovemore murders Cotton, citing vengeance as the reason. In the Diabola Club, Poltrot is playing cards with Valentine and notes that Valentine never removes his gloves. This is dismissed by Valentine as a gambler's superstition. Flowers confronts Valentine about Carteret's disappearance. Valentine claims that Carteret left after a few hands, and invites Flowers to play with him and Poltrot. Later Jeake and Turlough see Flowers leaving the club, looking pale and avoiding them.

Holywell, the Doctor and Hannah hold a seance in an attempt to locate the missing persons. They hear sounds that remind them of the death outside Holywell's house, and represent a series of numbers. Meanwhile, Turlough and Jeake decide to follow Flowers. They catch up with him and he asks for help, claiming that he is pursued by devils and a thousand voices. The voices are calling out numbers which the Doctor recognises as radio signals; he believes the Tardis can locate the source. Meanwhile Valentine is heard telling Carteret that he will be used for "restoration". In the Tardis the Doctor discovers that the source of the radio signal has been blocked. The Doctor instructs Holywell and Fry to look into the disappearances to find a pattern. Holywell discovers that a spate of young men in their prime disappearing in the area has happened every thirty years and finally connects this with the Diabola Club. It becomes apparent that outside observers are looking for someone and have noticed the presence of the Doctor in addition to their quarry. The Doctor and Holywell arrive at the club (leaving Fry behind) to find Valentine playing cards with Pultrot, who is quickly dismissed; the Doctor takes over playing with Valentine. The Doctor wins with an Ace of Hearts and Valentine tells him to keep the card. The Doctor decides to retire, leaving Turlough and Jeake in the Diabola. They follow Valentine after he leaves the club. Meanwhile, Lovemore is heard talking to the alien presence, stating that he believes Valentine is the person they are looking for and he will now cast off his fake identities and confront Valentine. It is revealed that both Lovemore and Fry are his fake identities.

The Doctor discovers that the playing card he was given by Valentine is a tracking device, calling the 'spirits' to him, and realises that he must destroy it; this causes the 'spirits' to depart. Valentine is heard to comment that if he could have the Doctor's mind it would complete his work. The Doctor realises that Valentine is stealing his victims' consciousnesses; each card is tailored to its victim's touch, which is why Valentine wears gloves when playing cards. These trapped consciousnesses are the spirits or ghosts which are summoned to the card once it has been activated. The Doctor discovers a way to reprogram the card he took from the dead man to claim a new victim when he or she touches it, and conceals it in his Almanack. Hannah returns and reveals herself to be the same person as Lovemore and an alien, but justifies her criminal life as a response to the gender stereotypes of the era. She goes on to disclose that Valentine is in fact Carthok of Deodalis, a deranged tyrant who escaped execution; she has been hunting him in revenge for the death of her family at his hands. Meanwhile, Jeake and Turlough arrive at Valentines laboratory and are detained and disarmed by Valentine; in their cell they find Carteret, who appears to be bordering on insanity. The Doctor and Holywell contront Valentine, who admits his true identity the murder of Fry/Lovemore's parents, and explains that he needs the consciousness of his victims to power his bio-mechanical ship to escape from the earth where he has been trapped. He has been healing his ship every thirty years by feeding it people's minds. Fry/Lovemore tries to force Valentine to return to Deodalis to face his execution but she is disabled by Valentine's defence systems. Valentine then decides to use her brain (rather than the Doctor's) to complete his repairs, and she is placed in a machine. The Doctor pleads for her life in exchange for what he claims is an item of great power but is in fact his Almanack (which he refers to as "the Wisdens"). He pretends to try to escape with the Almanack, and when Valentine/Carthok opens the book he touches the concealed card-trap and the consciousness/spirits he uses to capture his victims turn on him and kill him, led by Fry/Lovemore who also dies in the struggle.

TDP 363: The Time of the Doctor

with thanks to wiki

"The Time of the Doctor" is the 800th episode of the British science fiction television programme Doctor Who, written by Steven Moffat and directed by Jamie Payne, and was broadcast on 25 December 2013 on BBC One.[1] It features the final regular appearance ofMatt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor and the first regular appearance of Peter Capaldi as theTwelfth Doctor following his brief cameo in "The Day of the Doctor". The episode also features Jenna Coleman as the Doctor's companion Clara Oswald, plus several enemies of the Doctor, including the CybermenSilenceDaleks, and Weeping Angels.

"The Time of the Doctor" is the third instalment in a loose trilogy of episodes, following "The Name of the Doctor" and "The Day of the Doctor", which together serve as the Eleventh Doctor's swan song. The episode addresses numerous plot threads developed over the course of Smith's tenure, including the prophecy of the Silence and the Doctor's fate on the planet Trenzalore, while also dealing with the regeneration limit established inThe Deadly Assassin. "The Time of the Doctor" is also the 800th individual episode ofDoctor Who, the ninth Christmas special since the show's 2005 revival, and Matt Smith's fourth and final Christmas special as the Eleventh Doctor.

Plot[edit]

The Doctor is among thousands of aliens orbiting an unknown planet, from which a message that no one can translate is being broadcast continually across time and space. With the assistance of a modified Cyberman head nicknamed "Handles," which he uses as a personal assistant, the Doctor briefly visits two of these ships, before leaving to Earth to pick up Clara and briefly meeting her family. On returning, Handles identifies the planet as being Gallifrey, the lost planet of the Time Lords, a statement the Doctor vehemently rejects. The Doctor and Clara are invited on board the first ship to arrive at the scene — the Church of the Papal Mainframe, a space church headed by Mother Superious Tasha Lem, an old acquaintance of the Doctor. Tasha states that the Church has secured the planet with a force field and that the message instills fear into all who have heard it, then asks if the Doctor wishes to be the first to explore the cause of the message. On arriving on the planet, The Doctor and Clara are attacked by Weeping Angels, but using the key under his wig, The Doctor materializes the TARDIS around them. Now using the TARDIS as transport, The Doctor and Clara find a town called Christmas, that is surrounded by a truth field that prevents anyone from telling a lie. The message's origin is quickly identified as a crack in reality in the church tower; this crack is "scar tissue" from the cracks originally closed when the Doctor rebooted the universe ("The Big Bang"). Handles identifies the language of the message as Gallifreyan and with the Doctor's help, translates the message as a question: "Doctor who?" (the 'first question' in "The Wedding of River Song"), repeating endlessly. It is a request that the Doctor should speak his real name and thereby confirm it is truly he who is there.

The Doctor concludes that his people, the Time Lords, are using the crack in the universe and calling to him for help, from the pocket universe in which Gallifrey was trapped ("The Day of the Doctor"), from which they wish to escape. If the Doctor answers the question and speaks his real name, the Time Lords will know they have found the right place and come through to their home universe. However, this would also trigger a renewal of theTime War as the alien species gathered above descend to destroy them, and Tasha states this will not be allowed to happen: the planet will be destroyed first at whatever cost. The Doctor asks the name of the planet, and she states "Trenzalore", the planet where the Doctor knows he will one day die and have his tomb ("The Name of the Doctor"). The Doctor tricks Clara into plugging a device into the TARDIS which transports her home, and remains on Trenzalore to defend the planet from incursions by the aliens overhead, creating a stalemate where he cannot leave without sacrificing his home planet and its people, nor can he be removed for fear he will speak his name and let them return.

Immediately after landing Clara home, the TARDIS begins to return to Trenzalore, but Clara manages to hold on to the outside of the ship and join it on its return trip. However, to protect her from the time vortex, the TARDIS is forced to increase its shields, consequently slowing down the return journey. Arriving back at Christmas, Clara meets a visibly aged Doctor who has spent 300 years defending the town. He reveals to her that, although he is known as the Eleventh Doctor, he has already used all of his twelve possible regenerations, once his incarnation who fought in the Time War and the Tenth Doctor's aborted regeneration ("Journey's End") are counted. He is therefore in his final body and can no longer regenerate. He and Clara are then brought to the Papal Mainframe—nowthe Church of the Silence. Here, he learns that during this protracted stalemate, a chapter of the Church broke away and tried to avert these events by killing off the Doctor in the past: by destroying his TARDIS ("The Big Bang") and engineering a child to kill him ("A Good Man Goes to War"). Additionally, Tasha and her crew have been taken over by Dalek consciousnesses, converted into 'Dalek puppets'. The Doctor taunts Tasha, awakening her anger, and allowing her to resist the Dalek consciousness within her. They all escape the ship and return to the planet, as the Dalek fleet receives reinforcements and masses for war.

Despite promising never to send Clara away again, the Doctor does so and she returns to Earth as the siege of Trenzalore becomes an all out war. As the centuries pass, most of the races depart or are destroyed, leaving only the Silence (with whom the Doctor puts aside his differences and allies himself) and the Daleks. Later the same day (from Clara's perspective), the TARDIS reappears; Clara enters to find Tasha piloting the TARDIS. Noting that "flying the TARDIS was always easy, it's flying the Doctor that I've never quite mastered", Tasha returns Clara to Trenzalore, as "no one should die alone", sending her to meet with the now old and frail Doctor at the point when the Daleks finally win control of the town. With nothing left, the Doctor goes out to face the Daleks in a final stand.

Clara, unable to watch what will follow, returns to the time crack and through it, begs the Time Lords to somehow save the Doctor, urging that it is owed to him for all he has done in his lives. The Doctor is preparing to die outside, when the time crack vanishes from Clara's sight in the tower, to appear across the night sky. Regeneration energy flows from the crack and into the Doctor: the Time Lords have granted the Doctor a complete new regeneration cycle, thereby saving him from death.

As his thirteenth regeneration starts, the Doctor uses the excess energy to destroy the Daleks facing him. In the aftermath, Clara finds the Doctor, young again, back in the TARDIS. He states that this temporary rejuvenation is a 'reset' for the new cycle of regenerations to begin and the second phase of the regeneration is taking some time to start up, but he will soon change. He delivers a eulogy to his current form, and hallucinates a final farewell to Amy Pond, the first person he met after his last regeneration. He then removes his bow tie, a defining feature of his eleventh incarnation, and abruptly regenerates into the Twelfth Doctor. After exclaiming that he has 'new kidneys' and dislikes their colour, the new Doctor worriedly asks a shocked Clara if she knows how to fly the TARDIS.

Continuity[edit]

As this is the Eleventh Doctor's final appearance, numerous plot threads developed over the course of his journey are addressed. Remnants of the cracks in the universe, the major story arc of the fifth series, are being used by the Time Lords in an attempt to break back into the universe after their rescue from the Time War. The intention of the Silence and the rationale behind the prophecy ("Silence will fall when the question is asked") are revealed to prevent the Time Lords from returning to the Universe and causing the time war to begin anew. The Silence are also revealed to be behind the destruction of the TARDIS. The resulting explosion is what caused the cracks in the universe in the first place, a development which the Doctor notes is an ontological paradox. The Silence's attempt to kill the Doctor with River Song is also referenced.

The Doctor uses the Seal of the High Council of the Time Lords to help analyse the messages coming from the crack and confirm if it is of Time Lord origin. The Doctor says that he stole the seal from the Master in the Death Zone, a reference to the 1983 Fifth Doctorstory The Five Doctors. The monuments in the small graveyard in the background on Trenzalore are of the same unusual shape as the ones which will later cover the planet, as shown in "The Name of the Doctor". A Punch-style Doctor puppet says during a town celebration that "Christmas (the town) is defended"; this echoes the very first Doctor Who Christmas special, The Christmas Invasion, when the newly regenerated Tenth Doctor tells the Sycorax that "It (Earth) is defended."

Production[edit]

"The Time of the Doctor" is the last episode to feature Matt Smith (left) in the central role, and the second to include Peter Capaldi (right) as the new Doctor, following his cameo in "The Day of the Doctor".

Matt Smith said filming would commence on the episode when he had finished work on the film How to Catch a Monster. He later revealed filming would start in September.[2] The episode was directed by Jamie Payne, who previously directed the episode "Hide".[3] The read-throughfrom the Christmas special took place on 4 September 2013.[4]

In August 2013, Moffat stated in an interview that the Christmas episode would tie together the remaining story strands from the Eleventh Doctor era, some of which were introduced as far back as "The Eleventh Hour".[5] Production on the episode was scheduled to start on 8 September. Owing to his work on the film How to Catch a Monster, which required him to have a buzz cut, Matt Smith had to wear a wig to mimic the Doctor's hairstyle.[6] In August 2013, it was revealed that the Cybermen would feature in the Christmas episode, when one of the show's regular stunt artists,[7] Darrelle "Daz" Parker, tweeted that she would be playing a Cyberman.[8]

On 23 November 2013, the teaser trailer released on BBC One after "The Day of the Doctor" revealed that the DaleksWeeping Angels, and the Silence would also be appearing in the episode. Although the Daleks and the Cybermen had previously met in "Doomsday" and "The Pandorica Opens", this marks the first time that the four species have appeared in an episode together. Revealed in the trailer is the Doctor's return to Trenzalore and the tagline "Silence Will Fall", which has been repeated through Matt Smith's run as the Doctor.

Recasting the Doctor[edit]

On 1 June, the BBC announced that Smith would be departing the series after almost four years, with the Christmas special episode being the episode of transition between Smith's Doctor and the next regeneration. The announcement sparked media and fan speculation as to who the next Doctor might be.[9] It was announced on 4 August 2013, during a special broadcast – Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor – that the twelfth incarnation of the Doctor would be played by Peter Capaldi.[10] Although it was originally announced that Capaldi would debut as the new Doctor at some point during the Christmas special, he actually debuted in a cameo appearance in "The Day of the Doctor", in which only his hand and his eyes are visible.

Fake snow at Puzzlewood for filming.

The episode holds an 86% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes.[33]

Critical reception[edit]

Dan Martin of The Guardian praised the episode as "awfully good". He wrote, "[Steven Moffat] performed the fourth remix of the show's mythology in a row, tying up strands that date back to the beginning of Matt Smith's run." He added, "Perfectly, the rebooting of his regeneration cycle was done simply... Who could have guessed the Doctor's renewed regeneration cycle would be dealt with as simply as his best friend just asking nicely?"[34] IGN gave the episode a score of 8.4, "GREAT", writing that "'The Time of the Doctor' was an exemplary exercise in celebrating the departure of a loved one. If you managed to stay dry-eyed during the Doctor's goodbye to Clara (itself a not-entirely-transparent goodbye from Smith to the role he embodied), then you should probably double check your heart's still working," also lauding Karen Gillan's "rather crowd-pleasing, tear-inducing cameo". While criticizing its "rapid, almost breathless pace", they concluded, "It was a melancholic yet ultimately merry end to one of the show's best Doctors to date."[35]

Los Angeles Times said that Matt Smith exited "with comic energy" and "grace", stating, "The Christmas special embodies the heartfelt style and playfulness that Matt Smith brought to his spell as the Time Lord. There are two ways to watch the series. The first requires a deep knowledge of its complicated 50-year-history and an ability to keep complicated strands of time-twisting action straight in one's head. The other way is to watch it for the poetry, the resonances and the connections and a sense of wonder about life (extra-terrestrially dressed at times, but our life underneath)."[36]

io9 noted similarities between the episode and the previous regeneration story: The End of Time, with The Doctor seeing the person he first saw in his current incarnation before regenerating and "both are weighed under by the ominous, threatening shadow of their previous legacies, and in ways, both falter because of it." However they felt the "plot itself doesn't really quite hold up to the rest of the storytelling". They criticized Moffat for doing another "carnival of monsters, but this time, never feels quite justified, outside of a 'wouldn't it be cool *if*' moment." They also felt that it would best be suited to a two-parter like The End of Time, "with that extra time to breathe, it might not have felt so rushed, and Moffat might have had the chance to explain things a little deeper." But they too praised Smith saying, "Smith shines in his final outing as The Doctor. It's a whizz through his greatest hits if you will, from humour to grandiose speechery, to his magical capacity to make your lip quiver with a glance of his eyes." Overall they called it "a fitting end to the Matt Smith era."[37]

Jon Cooper of The Mirror gave the episode a positive review, calling it "Easily the highlight of Christmas telly," and that it "gave Matt Smith a perfect send off." They awarded the episode 4 stars out of 5. He praised Smith saying, "Easily the best he's put in since his tenure began." He criticized the pacing saying, "viewers hoping for an all-out intergalactic bloodbath must've left feeling disappointed, hundreds of years of inter-species warfare were skipped over in the blink of an eye". He also found the need for every single one of the Doctor's enemies to be there pointless, saying "Daleks on their own would have more than sufficed." He also found similarities with The End of Time, mainly the regeneration sequence, with the Doctor removing one piece of his costume before changing, and the now traditional callback to the previous regeneration with Capaldi's entrance with the kidneys line.[38]

The Independent gave a positive review saying that, "Smith gave a cracking final performance before bowing out." They also said that the episode " was a sci-fi spectacular!" But they also criticized the plot as being too complicated for its own good.[39]

Morgan Jeffrey of Digital Spy gave the episode 4 stars out of 5 and said that "Matt Smith steals the show, his final turn on Doctor Who is one of his very finest, perhaps even his absolute best." He also compared it to David Tennant's final episode and said "Smith's regeneration scene too is a thing of beauty, like David Tennant before him, Smith gets to break the fourth wall, just a little, in his extended final monologue, [...] it's perfect." He also was positive towards Clara and suggested that she was now being written in a more human, empathetic way "in the wake of the Impossible Girl arc", although such efforts were "well-intentioned but rushed", he felt that there were "steps being taken in the right direction" with the character. He praised Jenna Coleman's performance, saying she is "dependably excellent." But he did say "'The Time of the Doctor' is a case of the parts being greater than the whole. It has great scenes and standout moments rather than being a great episode." He also criticized the pacing and felt that "a repetitive story structure robbing many key moments of their power."[40]

Alasdair Wilkins of The A.V. Club was overwhelmingly positive in his review, praising the subtle emotional complexities. "This episode belongs to Matt Smith, and it's entirely likely that this will go down as his finest work in the role. Steven Moffat takes great care to spotlight every aspect of Smith's Doctor. He is alternately grumpy, funny, awkward, flirty, inquisitive, giddy, and heartbroken, and that simply covers the bits up to the reveal of the crack in reality. The old-age makeup isn't entirely convincing—though I'm not honestly sure any old-age makeup has ever been entirely convincing—but Smith nicely modulates his performance to suits the increasingly wizened versions of his Doctor."[41] He also praised the episode for being an effective "final act" rather than a standalone story. He gave the episode a rating of "A".[41]

Kyle Anderson of Nerdist wrote the finale "might leave a percentage of fandom cold, but... I can’t think of a better way for the Eleventh Doctor to end his tenure." He stated, "There were lots of loose ends for writer Steven Moffat to tie up, but somehow he did it." Of The Doctor's protection of Trenzalore: "It’s this action that is the perfect farewell to the Eleventh Doctor. He’s the Doctor, more than any other, who has run away and not wanted to be tied to any one place or time... compelled to stay put to save each and every life he can." The final scene "[allowed] the Eleventh Doctor to go out with dignity and both appreciate the sadness of leaving without casting a pall over the new." He added, "We get our first, very fleeting glimpse of the next Doctor, Peter Capaldi, who is just as intense and strange as we probably expected."[42]

Tim Martin of The Telegraph gave the episode three stars, criticizing the complexity of the episode and the fact that loose plot holes were all left to be answered in just 60 minutes: "Every time the Gordian plot-knot gets sonic-screwdrivered into submission for the 60-minute limit, the writers just tap the remnants into Later. What's the deal with the creepy brain-wiping creatures known as The Silence? Later. The name of the Doctor? Later, and then we get The Time of the Doctor, where every second line seems to offer a footnote to some arcane Wikipedia entry on Whovian lore." But he praised Smith's final performance saying, "the actor was so good as the childlike alien."[43]

Radio Times said they were "really warming to the current companion, especially now she's free of the "Impossible Girl" baggage. Perky, resourceful, best-friend material, Jenna Coleman's Clara has a tangible echo of Lis Sladen's Sarah about her." They noticed anEnd of Time call back, with The Doctor seeing his previous companions before his regeneration and how the Tenth Doctor destroyed the TARDIS with regeneration energy, the Eleventh doctor destroyed a Dalek ship with it. They look forward to seeing Peter Capaldi take over with his "Gaunt, lizard-like [face] and with frou-frou hair. [...] In Peter Capaldi, we have a dream-wish Doctor."[44]
