2017 Christmas special episode: Twice upon a time

David Bradley returned one more time as the first Doctor, Bill Pots returned for (at least) one episode, so did Mark Gatiss (in another role then the ones you probably have notices him: Lazarus, Danny Boy or Gantok – as Rondo Haxton), Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) and Nardole (Matt Lucas) appear for only a few moments. All of them accompanied the twelve Doctor (Peter Capaldi) in his last adventure before regeneration. And the last episode with Steven Moffat in charge – from next year the show will have another executive producer.

An adventure that wasn’t the normal Doctor Who adventures. It was more the last chapter of an era: the next Doctor is, for the first time in more than half of century, a woman. A reason for protest and comments thrown on internet this summer.

From one perspective, the Doctor must face his fear of death (change), from other pespective he must find reasons to continue. And, together, they must solve a mystery: who brought to them the soldier from first world war and why? With Bill Pots’ memories that have been brought to life.

What reasons do you have to watch the show further, in the new era that’s starting? The next series will be broadcasted probabil in Autumn 2018, with a first episode of 60 minutes and other episodes of 50 minutes.

Episode directed by Rachel Talalay, based on a story by Steven Moffat.

Cast: Peter Capaldi (The Doctor), David Bradley (The Doctor), Mark Gatiss (The Captain), Pearl Mackie (Bill Potts), Lily Travers (Polly), Jared Garfield (Ben), Toby Whithouse (WW1 Soldier), Jodie Whittaker (The Doctor), Nikki Amuka-Bird (The Glass Woman – voice).

Oh, there it is. Silly old universe. The more I save it the more it needs saving. It’s a treadmill.

Tardis noise

Yes, yes I know they’ll get it all wrong without me.

Tardis noise

Well, I suppose….one more lifetime won’t kill anyone. Well, except me.

Stirring music/Tardis noises

You wait a moment, Doctor. Let’s get it right. I’ve got a few things to say to you. Basic stuff first.

Never be cruel, never be cowardly. And never ever eat pears! Remember – hate is always foolish…and love, is always wise.

Always try, to be nice and never fail to be kind. Oh, and….and you mustn’t tell anyone your name. No-one would understand it anyway. Except….

He gasps, falls to the floor

Except….children. Children can hear it. Sometimes – if their hearts are in the right place, and the stars are too. Children can hear your name.

Gasps, grunts more

But nobody else. Nobody else. Ever.

Pulls himself off the floor

Laugh hard. Run fast. Be kind.

Stirring music.

Doctor – I let you go.

Jodie Whittaker’s reaction to landing the Doctor role

In a nice interview Jodie Whittaker chats to Christine about her new drama ‘Trust Me’ and recounts the moment she found out she was the thirtheenth Doctor!

Further more, she reveals how she feels about becoming the 13th Doctor for the BBC News. She is currently starring as a different kind of doctor in the new television drama Trust Me.

Jodie Whittaker, the thirteenth Doctor Who

My heart is still on fire, probably it’s a delayed heart attack, so you should call a Doctor. No, not a Doctor! The Doctor, the original one!

I’ve watched the trailer a few hours ago and I was curious about who Jodie Whittaker is… Now I found out more, and now I a curious what kind of Doctor she will be. For the moment she is the hottest sexiest Doctor in the series.

Guys and girls, stop arguing about the Doctor’s gender. It was about time your favorite Time Lord to go female, it’s not the first time in the history of Gallifrey and will not be the last one. If you want to argue about something argue about how the caracter is played or some other trivial stuff you want.
