Everybody’s favourite Time Lord returns in a brand new series of cinematic sci-fi action at the end of this month, and things are looking better than ever.
Bigger, bolder and more focused, but still holding on to a few trademark mysteries, Doctor Who returns at the end of this month. And finally, some light has been shed on the first few episodes, with some promotional pictures painting that larger picture.
Thanks to the BBC, we now have an idea of what to expect in the first three episodes.
Asylum of the Daleks
Kidnapped by his oldest foe, the Doctor is forced on an impossible mission – to a place even the Daleks are too terrified to enter… the Asylum. A planetary prison confining the most terrifying and insane of their kind, the Doctor and the Ponds must find an escape route.
But with Amy and Rory’s relationship in meltdown, and an army of mad Daleks closing in, it is up to the Doctor to save their lives, as well as the Pond’s marriage.
Dinosaurs on a spaceship
An unmanned spaceship hurtles towards certain destruction – unless the Doctor can save it, and its impossible cargo… of dinosaurs! By his side a ragtag gang of adventurers; a big game hunter, an Egyptian Queen and a surprised member of the Pond family.
But little does the Doctor know there is someone else onboard who will stop at nothing to keep hold of his precious, prehistoric cargo.
A town called Mercy
The Doctor gets a Stetson (and a gun!), and finds himself the reluctant Sheriff of a Western town under siege by a relentless cyborg, who goes by the name of the Gunslinger.
But who is he and what does he want? The answer seems to lie with the mysterious, Kahler-Jex, an alien doctor (yes another one!) whose initial appearance is hiding a dark secret.
You know what’s cool? These episodes. You know what’s not cool? Waiting for the bloody things to arrive!
