Series 8 of Doctor Who continued tonight as Clara met a menace from another dimension.

In Flatline by Jamie Mathieson, it was the impossible girl’s time to shine when she found herself separated from the Doctor and coming up against an enemy that existed beyond human perception. As the creatures closed in, the answer to salvation lay within the streets of an ordinary council estate. For the Doctor, meanwhile, things got smaller on the inside…

The latest adventure defied the dimensions of relativity itself, but what did you make of all the spiralling drama? The episode discussion is now open, below, for you to have your say!

bbc-unveils-the-doctor-and-the-dalek

The BBC has today announced a new Doctor Who children’s game which they’ll be launching online this week.

Released as part of the BBC’s Make It Digital initiative, The Doctor and the Dalek promises to take young fans on a dangerous quest as they accompany the Twelfth Doctor on an epic adventure through time and space.

Voiced by Peter Capaldi, players will be guided through an original standalone story, written by Phil Ford, featuring puzzles to outwit an array of the Doctor’s most deadliest foes.

The game has been designed in line with the new Key Stage 2/3 computing curriculum to allow children to understand the core programming principles, such as coding, as they play.

“’The Doctor and the Dalek’ is a brand-new Doctor Who story and a fantastic game, voiced by the wonderful Peter Capaldi. It’s an excellent example of how a hugely popular BBC show can give fans something extra, whilst also introducing wider audiences to increasingly important skills, such as coding and programming.”

- Danny Cohen, BBC Director of Television

“We’re really excited about the launch of ‘The Doctor and the Dalek’ as not only is it a really entertaining platform game for kids to play but it’s also a great introduction to some key principles of computer programming. Every puzzle has a strong link to the KS2 or KS3 computing curriculum. So we think it’s going to be a really valuable tool for students, parents and teachers.”

- Sinéad Rocks, Head of BBC Learning

It will be available freely at www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc from Wednesday 22nd October.
