The Doctor Who finale is spinning closer towards us, accompanied by John Simm’s malevolent Master, a legion of Mondasian Cybermen and a 400-mile-long spaceship battling a black hole. But that’s not all.
In the introduction to series 10 episode 11, showrunner Steven Moffat promises plenty of death as the Doctor and Missy try to come to terms.
“The Doctor and Missy have been friends for an incredibly long time and he wants more than anything else for her to be a good person like him. And she’s starting to want that too,” he says, before adding ominously: “The consequences for that are going to cost a lot of lives.”
The most reckless thing, the Reckless Doctor will ever do, probably. Hope can be a real deadly thing.
The Doctor is apparently monitoring the proceedings from the Tardis and – just to underline the distinct lack of peril that’s about to evaporate in an instant – he’s stuffing his mouth with crisps as he issues instructions. (remind you of the last Christmas Special?)
Just a Sunday stroll…No worries…Oh boy, this going to get very dark….
Doctor Who continues on BBC1 this Saturday 24th June at 6:45pm
