What’s in the vault? It’s one of the big questions surrounding Doctor Who series 10. We’ve found out today that, thankfully, this won’t be one of those times when we have to wait a whole series to get an answer.
The latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine teases that the contents of the vault will be revealed around the halfway point of the series, in episode 6. That one’s entitled Extremis. It was written by showrunner Steven Moffat and directed by The Zygon Invasion’s Daniel Nettheim.
“It’s the absolute classic mystery, isn’t it?” Moffat told the mag. “It’s the locked door. It’s the simplest thing I could do – the Doctor’s got a locked door – but it’s instantly fascinating. I mean, you’d only have to be staying in someone’s house for a while and realise that one of the doors is locked to become impossibly curious about what’s in there. That’s human nature. There is something perfectly fascinating about a locked door.
“And we don’t have to wait a whole 12 episodes to find out what’s in there, which I think is important, or you’d go mad.” Thank heavens for that.
So what is The Moff’s game then? I’m sure just revealing what’s in the Vault is just the start not the end.
