After a bombshell of a cliffhanger as we had at the end of Doctor Who Series 8’s penultimate episode, there’s no telling what we’ll get in the finale, “Death in Heaven,” still written by Steven Moffat and directed by Rachel Talalay, but now that we know Missy’s true identity, what she’s doing with the Cybermen, and why it’s imperative they get Danny Pink out of the Nethersphere (somehow), it’s going to be a downhill careening barrage toward the finish. For the last time this series, until Christmas of course, we have a teaser and a gallery for the next episode.
What we do know is this: “With Cybermen on the streets of London, old friends unite against old enemies, and the Doctor takes to the air in a startling new role. Can the mighty UNIT contain Missy? As the Doctor faces his greatest challenge, sacrifices must be made before the day is won.”
UNIT is back and along with them Kate Stewart and Osgood, who seems to have traded in her Tom Baker scarf for a Matt Smith bow tie, which we can only assume she’ll maintain is cool. Oh, and something’s going to happen in the air. The air! Have a look at the teaser and following that, a gallery of new images.
A Cyberman on the side of the airplane is way scarier than whatever it was William Shatner saw in The Twilight Zone, and once again, things flying out of St. Paul’s Cathedral is big and huge and not something we’ve seen on the show, really, since the latter David Tennant days. Guess we’re back to London being at risk.
We’ll find out what everything means on Saturday, and be sure to come back here for my review.
