The terrifying Skovox Blitzer is ready to destroy all humanity – but worse, and any second now, Danny Pink and the Doctor are going to meet.When terrifying events threaten Coal Hill school, the Doctor decides to go undercover.

The brand new series of Doctor Who continued tonight and the Doctor went back to school!

As we reach the halfway point of Series 8, the Time Lord went back to where it all began as terrifying events threatened the pupils and staff at Coal Hill School. Last week he became a bank robber so, obviously, the natural progression is to become a caretaker, and he did just that when Skovox Blitzer prepared to destroy all humanity. But there was worse to come…

Two worlds collided for companion Clara Oswald, who has thus far been doing a pretty good job at juggling her attention between her best friend and boyfriend. The truth was revealed to Danny Pink who joined forces with Team TARDIS to save the school from alien excursion.

So, what did you think of the Doctor’s transformation into The Caretaker? Coal Hill is safe and our discussion is now open for you to share your thoughts about tonight’s adventure…

series-8-the-story-continues

We’ve now reached the halfway point of Peter Capaldi’s debut series as the Twelfth Doctor and it’s safe to say that he’s definitely been keeping himself busy since our last series recap!

In Episode 4, Listen, we finally discovered what scares the grand old man of Time and Space when ghosts of past and future crowded into his life, and Clara realised just how dangerous allowing herself to get distracted can be when a date with new beau Danny Pink proved to be a timey-wimey affair which took them to the end of the universe itself…

Next up, Doctor Who met Ocean’s 11 as our heroes faced a Time Heist in the most dangerous bank in the cosmos. On the run from the terrifying guilt-detecting Teller, the TARDIS team fought their way past deadly security and came face to face with the powerful Ms Delphox who was harbouring an almighty secret of her own. They weren’t in it alone, though, as they invested in the help of Psi, a cyber-augmented gamer, and beautiful mutant human Saibra, and, according to the results of our Poll, the majority of you would enjoy having the latter’s shape-shifting ’superpower’!

In his most recent adventure, the Doctor went back to school as he became The Caretaker to overthrow a ploy from robot Skovox Blitzer to destroy all humanity. Two worlds collided for Clara Oswald as her best friend met her boyfriend and it wasn’t long before tensions reached boiling point. Meanwhile, Missy returned to add another cog to our wheel of speculation

Feel free to share your own highlights and low points of the series so far in the comments…

The final UK rating for Time Heist has been revealed.

The consolidated figure for Peter Capaldi’s fifth outing as the Twelfth Doctor is 6.99 million. A considerable rise from its initial overnight of 4.93 million, the final figure includes those who recorded the episode and watched it within the first week of its BBC One transmission.

An audience of 4.89 million tuned in to see the Doctor as The Caretaker on BBC One last night.

The sure ratings winner of the day was Strictly Come Dancing which aired directly before Doctor Who to 8.1 million, with The X Factor taking second place bringing 7.7 million to ITV.

when-the-twelfth-doctor-met-jo-grant

Former Doctor Who companion Katy Manning paid a visit to the show’s current home in Cardiff this week.

The actress, who travelled with Third Doctor Jon Pertwee as Jo Grant in the 70s, has been filming a guest role in Casualty which is made alongside Doctor Who at Roath Lock Studios.

Of course she couldn’t leave South Wales without a visit to the iconic blue box, where Peter Capaldi took a break from filming this year’s Christmas Special to familiarise her with her old home, which she says “always smells the same”.

Katy treated her Twitter followers to this brilliant photo of her and Peter recreating a classic shot from her own tenure in the series. “I was completely lost in the moment,” she tweeted.

louise-jameson-says-return-would-be-nice

Louise Jameson, who played the Fourth Doctor’s companion Leela, has revealed she would love the opportunity to revisit the character on screen.

The actress appeared in the series in the 1970s and told Nottingham Post “it would be nice” to see how she’s getting on. “I think she’d have loads of children,” she predicted. “I doubt she would have lasted long with that Time Lord guard she stayed with.”

She also discussed her relationship with Tom Baker.

“Tom was very difficult to work with back then, but now he’s an absolute dream,” she said. “He’s very apologetic about how he was. I would consider him to be one of my best friends. I wish I could have time travelled in the 70s and seen how our relationship would develop!”

Louise is currently appearing in Time And The Conways at the Nottingham Playhouse.
