Peter Capaldi’s final Doctor Who read-through

Something that might make you a bit emotional: behind-the-scenes footage shows Peter Capaldi, Pearl Mackie, David Bradley and Mark Gatiss embarking on their last Doctor Who script read-through with writer Steven Moffat and director Rachel Talalay. Steven Moffat’s last gig as the producer, Peter Capaldi’s last episode as the Doctor and the Christmas special epiosde. It can’t get any better. Probably.

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.

Peter Capaldi’s right time to leave

Peter Capaldi reflects on leaving Doctor Who as his final moment approaches, alongside Mark Gatiss and Toby Whithouse. There are just few days left until the magical final chapter of the Twelfth Doctor’s journey, and we will all sees the Time Lord teaming up with his former self, the first ever Doctor (David Bradley) and a returning Bill Potts (Pearl Mackie), for one last adventure.

An uplifting new tale about the power of hope in humanity’s darkest hours, Twice Upon A Time marks the end of an era. But as the Doctor must face his past to decide his future, his journey is only just beginning.

#AskDW with Mark Gatiss

BBC America asked the cast & crew of Doctor Who fans’ questions and here’s what Mark Gatiss had to say about the Ice Warriors.

Questions and answers about the future of Doctor Who.

Doctor Who, series 10, episode 9 – Empress of Mars

If you love Jules Verne’s stories you will also love the ninth episode of series 10: a group of British soldier from Victorian time arrived to Mars. In the year 1881. And the Doctor gets into it after NASA’s rover discovers the message these soldier let behind under the ice cap on the pole, a century and some years later: God save the queen. The Doctor soon find out that an Ice Warrior took the British soldiers with him from Earth to help him reach the Ice Warrior queen’s sarcophagus (the Ice queen is a first in the show).

The soldier in red quicky become an invading force, a doomed one as long as the native’s technology is much more superior than the invading one. And the Doctor have to save both sides from certain death: the old war, from so many years ago, let Mars without atmosphere and Ice Warriors could hardly restore their civilisation on the surface.

Bill’s role was not important, almost decoratif. No trace of her personality was obvious, as a part of certain fact: she was only a woman between mail warriors (including the Doctor).

Directed by Wayne Yip, written by Mark Gatiss. Cast: Peter Capaldi (The Doctor), Pearl Mackie (Bill), Matt Lucas (Nardole), Michelle Gomez (Missy), Richard Ashton (Friday), Ian Beattie (Jackdaw), Anthony Calf (Godsacre), Lesley Ewen (Coolidge), Bayo Gbadamosi (Vincey), Ian Hughes (Knibbs), Ferdinand Kingsley (Catchlove), Adele Lynch (Iraxxa), Glenn Speers (Sgt Maj Peach).

Next episode, the tenth of series 10, it’s “The Eaters of Light”: a long time ago, the ninth legion of the Roman army vanished into the mists of Scotland. Bill has a theory about what happened, and the Doctor has a time machine. But when they arrive in ancient Aberdeenshire, what they find is a far greater threat than any army. In a cairn, on a hillside, is a doorway leading to the end of the world…

Doctor Who: series 9, episode 9 – Sleep no more extra

Every obnoxious computer needs a voice, producer Nikki Wilson couldn’t resist and impersonated one in this horror classic episode!

Doctor Who’s SFX Supervisor, Danny Hargreaves, tells you how he achieved the impressive flame effects in ‘Sleep No More’.

Doctor Who, series 9, episode 9 – Sleep no more

An interesting episode, different, of new Who, something you should not watch! Not because is a classic horror episode, nor because the actions is made of different recordings (different perspectives) and put in order to get something fluent, something atypical, nor because of the monsters that haunts the indo-japanese space station le Verrier (on the orbit of Neptune).

The main reason is the unexpected ending: if you start watching the show and you get to the final yon can not erase or undo its effects. You will be entirely corrupt, you will can not sleep, and this thing will consume you all.

In the XXXVIIIth century the work is a very important of human activities, and the competition is so high the people are taking any advantage they can get. And when someone invents Morpheus, a device named after the Greek god of sleep, that modified the brain chemistry and compresses one month of sleep in only 5 minutes burst, it becomes very fast a vogue.

But sleep a necessary function of every live being, and the lack of sleep surface the monsters with human form and more: Sandmen are a new category of monsters, created along with the human body product (that ”sand in the eye” linked to sleep) and the dreams of Morpheus device. That ”sand” became alive and started digesting the host and any other human being that can be hunted and killed.

The story is happening on Tuesday, on the space station suddenly empty. The lack of communication rushed the saving team, but they are finding a lot of unexpected beings: first 2 visitors that had no business there (Clara and the Doctor) and a few of Sandmen. The story complicates, of course, and the humanity is being threaten again. At the end of the episode the situation is not clear, the threat is not completely eliminated, and the story could be continued some other time.

Directed by Justin Molotnikov, written by Mark Gatiss. Cast: Peter Capaldi (The Doctor), Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald), Reece Shearsmith (Rassmussen), Elaine Tan (Nagata), Neet Mohan (Chopra), Bethany Black (474), Paul Courtenay Hyu (Deep-Ando), Zina Badran (Morpheus Presenter), Natasha Sonal Patel (Hologram singer), Elizabeth Chong (Hologram singer), Nikkita Chadha (Hologram singer), Gracie Lai (Hologram singer).

Next time on Doctor Who: Face the Raven, the tenth episode of Series 9, written by Sarah Dollard. It premieres Saturday 21 November on BBC One, 8.10pm to 9pm.

The Doctor and Clara, with their old friend Rigsy, find themselves in a magical alien world, hidden on a street in the heart of London.
Sheltered within are some of the most fearsome creatures of the universe… and Ashildr (Maisie Williams)! With a death sentence hanging over their heads, not all of the intruders will get out alive.

Series 8, episode 3 – Robot of Sherwood

How the meeting of two legendary heroes would look like? Two characters that everybody knows, who’s story are just amazing and almost fantastic, but you wish they had existed because the world would be better and more wonderful then if they weren’t a part of it. Well, such meeting would be exactly as this episode of Doctor Who. Or, eventually, close enough. Mark Gatiss’ story is quite good, but it could be (much) better: after an important part of the episode the Doctor did not believe that Robin Hood and his merry companions were real (the climate change and the radiation the kept the trees very green helped him in keeping that belief), he was, finally, convinced they were, indeed, real. Considering that the tendency of series 8 is being dark and the Doctor is heading into darkness, maybe a robot Robin Hood would be better. And cutting a sequence of the episode just because some people may be offended (it presented the Sheriff of Nottingham’s decapitation, just to discover he was a cyborg, half man-half robot, before throwing him into the tub full with hot liquid gold) because of the reportes decapitaded by the Muslims is gale. They should have kept it.

If the episode 3 preview did not make you sure about the Doctor’s distrust about the Robin Hood’s existence, maybe their duel, when the Doctor fought Robin with a spoon, cleared you perspective. A sort of. “No damsels in distress, no pretty castles, no such thing as Robin Hood” said the Doctor after he give in Clara’s request to travel in 1190’s Brittan, just second before finding out how wrong he was. Entering the territory controlled by Robin’s merry men the Doctor had to defend his TARDIS wanted by Robin Hood. On a log over a creek. With a spoon. And he won with a hip move. You know Robin Hood’s story or do you need to tell you that? 🙂 Robert, Earl of Locksley lost his fortune and he found himself in the position to fight with and for the peasants against Sheriff of Nottingham who was oppressing the people of the land, stealing their good, especially their gold, in the name of the regent John, Richard the Lionhearth’s brother, the king left to fight in the crusade. The Doctor, Clara and Robin, accompanied by the merry men, participate to a content to find the best archer in the area (you know the story, right?) to win a golden arrow. A trap, of course. A contest won by te Doctor who used an arrow with a homing beacon. At its final the Doctor, Clara and Robin get in the same prison cell, in the pretty castle the Doctor was excluding at the beginning of the episode. The escape was not as expected, they had to save a pretty damsel in red dress (Clara) in distress.

Until the the of the episode the three of them had to become allies (whatever they wanted or not) to save themselves and to save the world from the danger come from the stars (again), that means the robots-knights whose ship crash landed in Notthingham, in Sheriff’s head (that’s the reason they made him a cyborg). The robots were looking the same Promise land as the robot from the first episode, Deep Breath, but they were much more advanced. You’ll have to discover yourselves how they succeded and what’s the surprise in the end of the episode.

Directed by Paul Murphy based on a story by Mark Gatiss, producer Nikki Wilson, executive producers Brian Minchin and Steven Moffat. Credits: Peter Capaldi (the Doctor), Jenna Coleman (Clara), Tom Riley (Robin), Roger Ashton-Griffiths (Quayle), Sabrina Bartlett (Quayle’s Ward), Ben Miller (Sheriff), Ian Hallard (Alan-a-Dale), Trevor Cooper (Friar Tuck), Rusty Goffe (Little John), Joseph Kennedy (Will Scarlett), Adam Jones (Walter), David Benson (Herald), David Langham (Guard), Tim Baggaley (Knight), Richard Elfyn (Voice of the Knights),

The fourth episode is Listen, written by Steven Moffat, and when the ghost of the past and the future crowd in their lives, the Doctor and Clara are thrown into an adventure that takes them to the very end of the Universe. What happens when the Doctor is alone? What scares him?

Doctor Who, series 7, episode 11 – `The Crimson Horror` review

“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).

Ice Warriors confirmed to return in a new Doctor Who story by Mark Gatiss

Classic monsters the Martian Ice Warriors belong to the old Doctor Who series: they appeared in The Ice Warriors (1967), The Seeds of Death (1969), The War Games (1969) , The Mind of Evil (1971), The Curse of Peladon (1972) and The Monster of Peladon (1974).

But now, after almost 40 years, Doctor Who’s executive producer Caro Skinner has revealed that they will return in the third episode of the new series of Doctor Who, in a new story set inside a submarine, written by Mark Gatiss.

“We wanted to bring them back because they’re wonderful. In the mix of stories that we were planning for this year it felt as if doing something very bold with a monster that hadn’t been seen for a while would be really cool.

“Mark is an enormous fan of the Ice Warrior stories and came up with the idea. The sense of a monster of that scale and that size trapped in a really small, contained environment such as a submarine was a really brilliant story to be able to tell.

“They were such a beautiful original design, and are genuinely really scary in terms of what they look like as they’re coming towards you in that armour.”
