We’ve had three Doctor Who episodes so far and we now have the posters for the final five episodes of the season. The above is the poster for “Hide,” the Neil Cross-penned ghost story which will air on BBC America at 8/7c this Saturday (followed by, you know what, Orphan Black and The Nerdist). This poster has been out for awhile, but now the BBC has released posters for the rest.
“Journey to the Center of the TARDIS,” for which I am very excited, will feature Clara getting lost in the TARDIS after a crisis on board and the Doctor having to try to find her. I’m all for anything that features the TARDIS interior, especially if it goes all M.C. Escher like the poster suggests. It’s written by Stephen Thompson and directed by Mat King.
“The Crimson Horror” written by Mark Gatiss and directed by Saul Metzstein will feature the Doctor’s return to Victorian London and see the return of Lady Vastra, Jenny, and Strax. Yay! It’s also got guest star Diana Rigg. How much do you think Matt Smith begged to get to wear a bowler?
“Nightmare in Silver” will see the return of the Cybermen, this time in a new design and hopefully a scarier story than before. It ought to be; it’s written by Neil Gaiman and is directed by Stephen Woolfenden who was the second unit director on the last three Harry Potter films.
And the finale, “The Name Of The Doctor,” which is written by Steven Moffat and directed by Saul Metzstein. Boy, that Saul Metzstein’s sure been working a lot; he directed five episodes since last year. Now before everybody freaks out about whether or not we should know the Doctor’s name, just remember that River Song has to be told it at some point so that she can know it in her final appearance:
