Do you remember the scenes from The power of three? The Doctor and Amy are summoned to the UNIT headquarters under the Tower of London where a Kate Stewart shows them several cubes under investigation, every single one behaving in a different fashion. The Doctor recalls his friendship with Kate’s father, Brigadier Sir Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart.
In the next episode, Nightmare in Silver, the Doctor faces new, even deadlier Cybermen in this action-packed episode by Neil Gaiman.
The Doctor has been talked by Clara Oswald into taking the two kids she looks after, Artie and Angie, for an excursion, a day out, after they blackmailed her. The Doctor decides to take them to Hedgewick’s World, the biggest, best and most wonderful amusement park in the galaxy, a quarter of a million years in the future, because he has a golden ticket and it gets four people in for free, gets you free ice creams and it gets you to the front of any line, which is great because the lines for the Spacey Zoomer can go on for weeks. And that’s where it starts.
Unfortunately, it also starts with them discovering that Hedgewick’s World has been closed for several years and there’s almost nobody on it now except for a small army troop on manoeuvres and a mad old showman named Mr Webley who landed his spaceship there after it closed and is now there with a Cyberman that plays chess. That’s where it begins. This is also 1,000 years after the end of the big human/Cyberman war – where the humans won.

“Yes, I’m the Doctor, you’re nuts, and I’m gonna stop you.”
“In the wrong hands, that venom could wipe out all life on this planet!”
Do you know about the not scientific proved story that the retina from a dead man’s eyes keeps the very last thing he had seen before dying? The medicine says that things can’t happen, at least in normal conditions. In the victorian times, in Yorkshire the year 1983 (the very next year after the events in the Christmas special episode, The snowmen, from London), started to appear dead man in the canals with a strange spect: scarlet-red skin, almost shining, and with the images from the moment of dead imprinted on the retina.
The Doctor and Clara arrive in Yorkshire by accident (they wanted to get in London) and become interested by the mystery. They discover that it was about some poison and the Sweetville mill, managed by Mrs. Gillyflower, is somehow related to that deaths. They try to get inside the society presided by the old lady and her silent partner, Mr. Sweet, and they disappear from the face of the Earth – at least from the point of everyone else. It’s not something unusual: about everybody accepted in the group disappeared without trace… or they were found dead in mysterious circumstances.
Madame Vastra, Jenny and Strax get involved in the story when the brother of a deceased reporter shows them the pictures he has taken… the Doctor’s image was very clear in the reporter’s eyes, so they go to solve the mystery and save the Doctor. Jenna gets inside the mill and finds the prisoner – a waste of the process that transformed the normal humans into scarlet dead corps. The only reason he was still alive (beside his internal alien chemistry that made him partially immune to the virus) was the attachment Ada Gillyflower (the blind daughter of the old lady responsible for everything) felt for him – she preferred to keep a monster as companion instead throwing him into the canals, along with the rest of the waste.
The Doctor is saved, along with Jenny they save Clara, and the team reunited (Vastra and Strax join them) try to save the world one more time: the Sweetville is the Winifred Gillyflower trial to save the most beautiful and the most intelligent from an disaster she was intending to do. She and the very old leech (the reptilians had very similar problems about 65 million years ago) was bound into a symbiotic creature – its red colored venom was produced in industrial quantities to transform and kill people.
I let you to discover yourselves how they finished their adventure. I only have to mention that Strax was funny as usual, but he did his job: he saved his team twice in this episode. The most cool scene from the show was in the end of the episode, when the children Clara is taking care about show her some old images (from 1970s’ and from 1983, but also a picture from Victorian London) and they blackmail her promising they would tell their father that their nanny was a time travel unless she was going to take them along in her next adventure. So, in the next episode the Doctor will have more companions than before… in an amusement park pillaged by Cybermen…
The director is Saul Metzstein, and the writer is Mark Gatiss.
The cast: Matt Smith (The Doctor), Jenna-Louise Coleman (Clara Oswald), Jack Oliver Hudson (Urchin Boy), Neve McIntosh (Madame Vastra), Diana Rigg (Winifred Gillyflower), Dan Starkey (Strax), Catrin Stewart (Jenny Flint), Rachael Stirling (Ada Gillyflower).
If I have to describe this episode of Doctor Who I would say it’s intense. Very intense. The fans that watched the series 7 so far noticed by now that the Tardis and Clara did not understood too well… Or, at least, not as the Doctor would have liked… teasing from one girl to another being something normal lately (the last few episodes). That’s probably why the Tardis was impersonated by a woman last season, in The Doctor’s wife.
So the Doctor let Clara pilot the Tardis once, a test to make them deal with each other, a mistake that let some scavengers recovering lost abandoned ships to target the blue box that was apparently lost in space and to take it out. The 3 brothers Van Baalen from the salvage ship get the damaged Tardis inside and try to get inside. The succeed only when the Doctor convince them to save Clara, trapped and in danger, offering them the most valuable salvage of their lives.
Doctor’s power of persuasion is matched only by the lies he uses to force the Van Baalen brothers to do their best in saving Clara: he stars a false auto destruct mechanism setting it for one hour, then it reduce the time period to 30 minutes because of the protests. He would reduce it again to 15 minutes if his new prisoners would protest again. The danger is not small: the toxic gases and fire fill entire Tardis sections, unknown creatures (at least in the beginning) hunts the people inside. Even the self destruct was false, the Tardis engine overloaded and it was about to explode (as the Doctor discovered to some point). That’s why I said the episode was very intense (and funny from time to time, especially because of Clara): the heroes does not stay for a moment, many times the action does not stop and it’s very alert, and the surprises are not just a few.
The references about the interior of the Tardis are many spread all over the last 7 series, the library being somewhere next to the pool, the old control rooms being kept in storage, safe, etc. In this episode we did not get to the pool, but we visited (with Clara’s help) the building sized library. The Time Lord’s companion find out the name of the Doctor, preparing so the season 7 finale (The name of the Doctor), but she might not remember this essential element to the end of the episode. The solution found to solve the problems is rather familiar to the ones watching the 5 series and know about the cracks in time through the moments in the time, present and future are leaking.
I don’t want to insist about another details, it remains for you to watch the episode to find them out. But the solution to solve the problem is very simple and elegant, allowing space for mystery and other questions.

If you love the ghost stories you will love episode 9, season 7 of new Doctor Who series. It does not have the name Hide for nothing: the Doctor (Matt Smith) and Clara Oswald (Jenna-Louise Coleman) get to Caliburn House where the supernatural investigator Professor Alan Palmer (Dougray Scott) and his “emotional psychic” assistant Emma Grayling (Jessica Raineas) try to gather information about the ghost haunting the mansion. The historical data gathered about the Witch of the Well covered a few centuries when the Doctor and Clara dropped in.
More: besided the 3 human occupants and a Time Lord there were a creature inside the mansion, passing almost unnoticeable from one room to another. It frightened the Doctor and his companion in their trial to know the house and find the ghost.
In this episode everyone has his/her own agenda: the professor Alan Palmer wanted to find out more about the life beyond because of his experiences in the war, when he killed and people died because of him. The Doctor wanted to ask Emma Grayling about his current companion, the mistery girl that died twice and still was beside him. Clara had something against the TARDIS that did not accepted her easily, taunting her any time she could. Emma was in love with the professor and, as any love story, that was blocking her native empathy and she could not feel professor’s feeling toward her.
All these stories are around the ghost in the Caliburn House and the successful trials to contact her. The TARDIS offered the Doctor the possibility to recognize in this ghost another temporal traveler that got stranded into a pocket Universe – a bubble inside our own Universe, but almost apart from it. It was needed a strong medium in order to make a connection between the two Universes and to save the captives from the smaller one.
No, the plural is not a mistake. Because there were 2 prisoners: a beautiful dark time traveler woman named Hila (Kemi-Bo Jacobs) and the partner of the creature I’ve mentioned before. But I am letting you discover yourselves how the situation was solved and how the love stories were continued. I’ve already said to much, so I can mention only one element: there is a surprise I’ve not mentioned.
Written by Neil Cross. Cast: The Doctor (Matt Smith), Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman), Alec Palmer (Dougray Scott), Emma Grayling (Jessica Raine), Hila (Kemi-Bo Jacobs), The Crooked Man (Aiden Cook).
Do you remember the dry leaf that had appeared in Clara’s book, the one with 101 places to visit? At the end of the previous episode,Â The Bells of Saint John, the Doctor asked why she was keeping a leaf, and the answer that he got was very simple: that was not a leaf, that was the first chapter. When you’ll have the chance to watch (again) The rings of Akhaten remember all these.
Also in the previous episode the Time Lord is decided to find out exactly who Clara Oswald is, and we are finding along him in this episode her short history: her parents met because that dry leaf the wind had taken from a tree on the street into Clara’s dad’s face, they felt in love, got married and had a daughter. She later had a great connection with the mother she lost as a teenager.
Do you love aliens? Clara’s first trip to outer space is full of them, as various and strange as possible, so the interactions with some of the are… not as smooth as she would like. The inhabitants of the 7 worlds orbiting around the star Akhaten share a common belief: the life in the Universe started on a planet in their own system. So they have built a pyramid shaped temple on that planet, and on every thousand years (or so), when the rings are aligned, they are keeping the Festival of Offerings.
Walking on what seems rather a bazaar Clara meets a girl, Mary, the Queen of Years, that, visible frightened, runs trying to escape from some guys chasing her. Doctor’s companion finds out that the little girl was supposing to sing their stories in front of the world and the Old God. And, as any child, she was afraid not to make mistakes. Clara tries to give her confidence, she succeeds, but she can not stay aside when the girls is taken away to the temple during the show. She and the Doctor try to save her and, eventually, they have to fight against the Old God supposed to be sleeping. The sings and the Queen of Years sacrifice were meant to keep him away, sleeping for another thousand years or so, until a new ring alignment and another Festival of Offerings.
I prefer to let you discover yourselves the way the Doctor and Clara solve this problem, I don’t want to spoil your surprise. But what’s the value of a song, of a story? What makes a story interesting and how much? Do you prefer the adventures that happen during one thousand years life (as the Doctor’s), some of them even extraordinary, or the ones you can create yourselves day by day, second by second? Do you prefer other man’s adventures or yours? When you’ll answers these questions you’ll be ready to watch this episode.

You have the chance to hear from Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman and Steve Moffat about the character of Clara, “the impossible girl”… a very ordinary girl living in London, she does not quite know what she wants to do with her life… and then she meets the Doctor.
Oswin Oswald, Clara Oswin Oaswald, now fully converted into a Dalek, struggles to accept that she is no longer human, before advising the Doctor to run for his life. Memorable scenes from Asylum of the Daleks, Doctor Who series 7.
Do you remember the warningÂ posted on youtube 2 days ago? The one warning people that there is a dangerous wi-fi signal that they must not access because others will have access to you using it and they will steal your souls to upload on the internet? Well this warning is the beginning of the new Doctor Who episode released by BBC a few hours ago.
In theÂ The Bells of Saint John prequelÂ the Doctor isÂ despondent because he did not found Clara, but now we find him retired to a monastery in the year 1207 AD. To be clear: The Bells of Saint John is the phone ringing, the old fashion phone set on the outside of TARDIS. The link to Saint John is the Saint John ambulanceÂ emblemÂ on the TARDIS next door. At some point the Â Doctor is told the the bells are ringing and he is hurrying to answer the phone. The woman searching for him got the number from someone from the shop sometimes in 2013, that person have told her the Doctor was offering the best tech support ever and she needed help to get the wi-fi connection.
When he finds out that the wi-fi password wasÂ rycbar123, the initials fromÂ run you clever boy and remember, the Doctor makes the connection between the unknown woman and the one searching for him… and a few seconds later he is at her door.
The episode is great, and the Doctor’s insistenceÂ to introduce himself to a Clara that didn’t remember him were useful when she was uploaded to an internet server (yes, she accidental accessed at some point the dangerous wi-fi). The Great Intelligence that make itself a presence in the Christmas Special is very much present in this episode, using people like puppets.
I rather write no more about this episode, it’s too dynamic and too intense to tell you more about it. My suggestion is to follow it, it’s the first page of an extraordinary adventure.

What would be your decision if you could decide how (who) you would be from one moment to the future. There is an article on Radio Times that says that Steven Moffat would rather be the Doctor than Sherlock. Considering that he is the lead writer for both characters that’s going to mea something.
Time Lord or detective? Ok, itâ€™s not quite Sophieâ€™s Choice but asking Doctor Who and Sherlock writer Steven Moffat to decide between the two characters who have defined his career is still a tough one.
â€œI think Iâ€™d want to be the Doctor because heâ€™s gonna live a lot longer â€“ obviously thatâ€™s a tremendous advantage,â€ said Moffat. â€œAlsoâ€¦ I think the Doctor is fundamentally quite happy and I think Sherlock Holmes isnâ€™t as content â€“ somehow heâ€™s striving for something he wonâ€™t have. I think, probably, in the dark of night, the Doctor is probably slightly happierâ€¦”
