With series 10 having just finished, I now will try to rank all ten seasons (worst to best) of the BBC’s flagship show as best I can. This particular disappointment was none-more-so evident than in series seven, which split it’s 13 episodes (plus a Christmas special) over two years. Then we met Clara Oswald for the first time and despite some good stuff here and there, it kind of sucked that her character existed solely for the purpose of The Doctor.
Apart from an obvious reveal, some wasted Bill and silliness here and there, ‘World Enough and Time’ and ‘The Doctor Falls’ were fantastic. The characterisation of Missy was fascinating, the cinematography was beautiful, the music stunning. The only weak note was, surprisingly, John Simm’s returning Master who didn’t really do much but give Missy closure to her arc.
It may be sad to see Peter Capaldi leave the role of The Doctor as he’s often been fantastic during a less fantastic tenure of the show. As acclaimed British actors go, there’s no better than Ejiofor, whose turns in Serenity, 12 Years a Slave, Love Actually and most recently Doctor Strange have proven that he’s a versatile actor who can do drama and humour with ease. Maybe one major science fiction franchise isn’t enough for this Birmingham-born actress who, like Capaldi before her, has previous with the show, starring in 2008 adventure The Unicorn and the Wasp.
Set in New York, the episode sees The Doctor teaming up with a masked superhero and a journalist to stop a deadly alien threat. Almost like a Lois Lane type character, Lucy is surprised to learn that the superhero is real. Until now, there have only been rumours of the existence of a masked vigilante roaming the streets of New York.
Created by young adult author Patrick Ness, Class is aimed at a much younger, teen audience, complete with a cast of teenagers. Set in Coal Hill High School, they must juggle their own lives with the unexplainable situations that are happening around them, as the cracks in time and space begin to thin because of The Doctor and his time-travelling. Coal Hill High School has been a part of Doctor Who since the first episode aired in 1963.
Matt Lucas is back – joining Peter Capaldi on the ‘Doctor Who’ set. Arriving in Cardiff to film scenes for the upcoming ‘Doctor Who’ series 10, the 42-year-old comedian looked delighted to be back… and we even spotted him sharing a laugh with Peter Capaldi on set. ‘Doctor Who’ Series 10 is currently filming on location at Cardiff University, where we found Matt Lucas and Peter Capaldi filming a fairly energetic scene in front of one of the University buildings.
