Dust off your fez, straighten the bow tie and stock up on those jelly babies and jammie dodgers because the Doctor is returning! Supernatural Saturdays are coming back to BBC America and you know what that means. The return of ‘Doctor Who!’
The second half of Season 7 begins airing on March 30th with the episode titled ‘The Bells of St. John,’ a contemporary urban thriller written by Steven Moffat. The episode is set in modern day London and will introduce a new nemesis for the Doctor called the Spoonheads who will “battle the Doctor as he discovers something sinister is lurking in the Wi-Fi.”
Speaking of nemesis, an old one will return but in new form – the Ice Warriors will once again go up against the Doctor this season in episode 9 which currently has the working title ‘The Cold War.’ These Martians have not been seen since the 1974 episode ‘The Monster of Peladon’ when they were pitted against the Third Doctor. This time around, they will be aboard a submarine. Sounds like the Doctor will have his hands full with this episode. In fact, Steven Moffat described ‘The Cold War’ as “an absolute cracker” with “stormingly good ideas.”
Moffat is very excited regarding the second half of the season exclaiming:
“It’s the 50th year of Doctor Who and look what’s going on! We’re up in the sky and under the sea! We’re running round the rings of an alien world and then a haunted house. There’s new Cybermen, new Ice Warriors and a never before attempted journey to the centre of the TARDIS. And in the finale, the Doctor’s greatest secret will at last be revealed! If this wasn’t already our most exciting year it would be anyway!”
Moffat is such a tease! Is he really going to reveal the Doctor’s greatest secret in the season finale? Of course, what we may think is the Doctor’s greatest secret (to some it is his name), may not be the same secret that Moffat thinks is the “greatest.” And we all know, Moffat is a clever fellow.
None the less, this year will be an exciting year, indeed, with the biopic ‘An Adventure in Space and Time’ already in production and the 50th anniversary 3D episode to begin filming in Cardiff on March 18th!
While we wait for the return of ‘Doctor Who,’ the BBC has released quite a bit of photos which we have for you below. We separated the images into their perspective episodes to give you an idea of what to look forward to when they come on air!
