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.

The Twelfth Doctor faced his greatest challenge yet tonight in the finale of his debut series.

After Dark Water’s momentous cliffhanger, the action showed no signs of slowing down as we dived head first into Series 8’s climactic adventure. In true Steven Moffat style, our heads were left racing before the opening titles had even rolled, and what followed was an epic and life changing battle which saw old alliances uniting against even older enemies…

As the Doctor took to the air in a startling new role, UNIT tried to contain Missy, and Clara Oswald and Danny Pink faced heartbreak as their destiny was determined. Grave sacrifices were made and the Doctor was left questioning his own loyalties in a dramatic showdown, but was Death in Heaven a worthy conclusion to this year’s series? Have the loose ends been tied up for you, or were you unsatisfied with Steven’s script? Rate and discuss below!

And that, Whovians, is that! As far as Series 8 goes, anyway… So. Is it Christmas Day yet!?

NOTE: This discussion will NOT be spoiler monitored so please do not read the comments if you haven’t seen Death in Heaven. You have been warned!

neil-gaiman-not-writing-for-series-9

Neil Gaiman has confirmed that he won’t be contributing to Series 9 of Doctor Who due to “ridiculous work commitments”.

The writer told Radio Times that, while he can’t fit it into his busy schedule at the moment, he’s still “determined to write for Peter Capaldi “at some point in the future. “As long as Peter is Doctor Who, I will write for him,” he said. “Every time I’m in the UK, I go and see the Doctor Who people. None of us are going to let me go off the boil. But it’s an enormous time commitment. How Steven Mofatt does it and Sherlock, and retains his sanity, I do not know.”

He continued: “I haven’t done an episode set on Earth yet and I also haven’t created a new monster. So there are still boxes left to tick. I don’t think I’ve scared anybody yet either. I’d love to do something that sends adults behind the sofa too and makes them wee a bit.”

Neil’s previous Doctor Who episodes are The Doctor’s Wife and Nightmare in Silver.

new-last-christmas-interviews

Christmas Day, and as such this year’s Doctor Who festive special, is fast approaching and the stars of the show have been busy promoting it in these new BBC interviews.

First up, showrunner Steven Moffat has teased that Last Christmas is “the ultimate meeting of Christmas heroes” and the Twelfth Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi, has promised “it’s both really scary and really festive” – but that’s pretty much Doctor Who’s M.O.! Clara’s “happy to be back in the arms of the TARDIS again” according to Jenna Coleman, while Nick Frost has described his guest role as Santa as “fantastic”.

There’s lots of interesting titbits so they’re worth a read! It airs Christmas Day at 6:15pm.
