Oh man, Coach. Last week’s Doctor Who episode, “Face the Raven,” sure had a lot to chew on, which made the first episode of our live fan show, The Doctor Who Companion, fly by. (If you missed the first episode, you can watch it archived here!) Luckily, there’s just as much to talk about in this week’s episode, “Heaven Sent,” which features Peter Capaldi trapped in a strange castle being chased by a huge, fly-covered nightmare beast called the Veil. He’s all by himself! How can they have a whole episode with essentially one character? When it’s the Doctor, all you need is one.
This week, again at 10:15pm ET, right after the episode airs on BBC America, we’re LIVE on YouTube to talk about it. Hosts Michele Morrow and Matt Acevedo will again break down the week’s big twists and turns, this time joined by stand-up comedian and one of the biggest Who fans you’re likely to meet, Lauren Bancroft. Later on in the show, yours truly will join to share some Doctor Who history and talk about the biggest news of the week. Lots to mull over, but it wouldn’t be the rebel Time Lord if there wasn’t.
You can watch the live stream above starting at 10:15pm ET, but if you want to join in the chat discussion, which you definitely should, you’ll have to go to the Nerdist YouTube channel. We want to hear from you! You’ve got opinions, we want you to share ’em. And if you’d rather, just tweet your questions/comments using the hashtag #NerdistWho!
