Orbiting a quiet backwater planet, the massed forces of the universe’s deadliest species gather, drawn to a mysterious message that echoes out to the stars – and amongst them, the Doctor. Rescuing Clara from a family Christmas dinner, the Time Lord and his best friend must learn what this enigmatic signal means for his own fate and that of the universe.
“And now it’s time for one last bow like all your other selves. Eleven’s hour is over now, the clock is striking Twelve’s…”
“If you want my life, come and get it!” shouts the Time Lord as the siege of Trenzalore begins. And then we hear those four words, delivered by a Dalek: “The Doctor is regenerating!”
Could that be a slight note of panic in its voice…? 😀
