A 5,000 year-old Pyramid stands at the centre of a war zone, where the Chinese, Russian and American armies are about to clash. There are many problems with that, but the one that intrigues the Doctor is this: there wasn’t a pyramid there yesterday. The Doctor, Bill and Nardole face an alien invasion unlike any other, and before conquest can begin, these aliens need the consent of the human race…

Series 10 continued in spectacular style tonight as the second instalment of this year’s epic three-part adventure took our heroes to the end of the world itself…

They’ve been there before, of course, but definitely not like this. The Doomsday Clock was already a-tickin’ as our TARDIS Team unravelled the mystery of an ancient but brand new Pyramid, but it was what lay inside the tomb that had the potential to push the Doctor & Co – and the entire human race – to the brink of destruction. The Monks were back and they were ready to talk, as the truly Earth-shattering extent of their powers was revealed.

Meanwhile, Armageddon was nigh within the confines of a research laboratory (it’s always the last place you look…) and the consequences would have been catastrophic had it not been for Bill Pott’s final act of desperation. She has given her consent, but what did you think of The Pyramid at the End of the World? Are the modelling Monks a magnificent edition to the show’s menagerie of monsters, or were you left disappointed by the latest extra terrestrial escapade? Let us know by discussing tonight’s episode in the comments!

The latest Series 10 episode – The Pyramid at the End of the World – was watched by an unofficial audience of 4.01 million viewers, according to the overnight ratings.

With 20.4% of the total television audience, Doctor Who was the third most watched programme of the day, behind Britain’s Got Talent (8.38 million) and the FA Cup Final (6.43 million).

whoviannets-10-exclusive-teasers-for-the-pyramid-at-the-end-of-the-world

Series 10 continues this weekend as the countdown to armageddon begins in The Pyramid at the End of the World.

It’s basically the end of the human race as we know it. Fear not, though, as we’re here to help you prepare for doomsday with our 10 exclusive teasers – including one red herring – for the upcoming episode. What can you deduct, and which do you think is the lie?

The episode airs on Saturday at  7:45pm on BBC One.

  1. If last week’s episode confused you, the first minute of this one should help clear things up.
  2. Nardole isn’t just sexy, you know. He’s excellent at hacking into CCTV cameras, too.
  3. Bill’s second – well, first – date with Penny gets rudely interrupted.
  4. Check the time on your phone. Tick tock goes the Doomsday Clock…
  5. A familiar face from UNIT makes an unexpected appearance.
  6. “I wouldn’t have even voted for the President. He’s ******.”
  7. Move over, Bill. It looks like the Doctor has just found himself a new companion.
  8. “The end of your life has already begun.” Oh, Doctor. Say it isn’t so!
  9. The Monks are back, but they’ve really been here all along…
  10. Another week, another cliffhanger. And this one is a doozy.

doctor-who-brand-to-be-expanded-in-china

BBC Worldwide has signed a major new agreement with Shanghai Media Group Pictures (SMG Pictures) to boost the Doctor Who brand in China.

The agreement – which extends until Series 15, expected to air in 2022 – also includes a “first look” for Series 11 next year, suggesting that Chris Chibnall’s first series as showrunner will air in China simultaneously with the UK.

It is hoped that the partnership will “increase the Doctor Who fan base in China” as the two teams “explore future opportunities and exchange expertise”. Chinese fans will also be able to enjoy spin offs Torchwood and Class

vote-for-your-favourite-series-10-episode-so-far

It only feels like yesterday that Bill Potts was stepping aboard the TARDIS in The Pilot, but time really does fly when you’re having fun because we’re already halfway through the brand new series.

We’d say that we’re halfway out of the dark, but something tells us that things are going to go from bad to worse for Team TARDIS as we approach the grand finale, The Doctor Falls, especially if the events of last night’s episode, Extremis, are anything to go by, and who knows what further shocks and surprises will be unearthed along the way…

While we twiddle our thumbs and wait for the adventure to continue in The Pyramid at the End of the World next weekend, now is the perfect time to reflect on the first half of Series 10 and discuss your favourite moments so far. We’ve encountered living puddles, rampant robots, a Thames-dwelling serpent, killer woodlice, the walking dead and even the Pope himself has made an appearance. Amidst the chaos, Bill has become a bonafide time travelling hero and Nardole has proved himself to be secretly bad ass, too. Although there’s nothing secret about that, baby doll. But what’s been your favourite episode of the bunch?

Vote in our poll below and let us know what you’ve loved/loathed in the comments section!
