With the Series 5 finale now just a matter of weeks away (time really is flying, isn’t it?), that pesky little crack is still very much part of the Doctor and Amy’s lives, so head over to our ongoing discussion now to share your thoughts on the latest arc developments!

All through the Universe. Rips in the continuum. Some sort of… space-time cataclysm. An explosion, maybe. Big enough to put cracks in the Universe. But what?

Series 5 continues next weekend with an episode entitled Vincent and the Doctor, and a new trailer for the story is now airing ahead of its broadcast!

When the Doctor and Amy travel back in time, they find terror lurking in the cornfields of Provence, and only a sad and lonely painter can see it. It’s not long before our heroes join forces with Vincent Van Gogh, but do the three of them have what it takes to defeat a powerful and deadly alien? The episode is written by Richard Curtis.

Vincent and the Doctor airs Saturday 5th June at 18:40 on BBC One/HD.

It’s the most important day in the history of Earth: the dawn of a new age of harmony or the start of its final war. The Doctor must face his most difficult challenge yet, in a battle in which he cannot take sides, and on a day when nobody must die…

Now that we’re over the halfway mark of the series (already!?), things were inevitably going to take a turn for the worse, and in tonight’s episode, our heroes faced their darkest day yet, finding themselves at the forefront of an epic battle for Planet Earth…

In the conclusion to Chris Chibnall’s long-awaited Silurian two-parter, there was plenty of good old-fashioned drama, action and heartache (oh, so much heartache!) on the menu, as the human race faced the dawn of a new age of harmony, or the start of their final war. As if all of that wasn’t enough to discuss, we were also given more tantalizing teases as that pesky little crack returned, and there were yet more jaw-dropping twists and turns adding another bundle of cogs to the ever-growing finale wheel of speculation.

What did YOU think of Cold Blood? It’s time to share your thoughts and dissect the adventure for yourselves, so have your say today by posting your reactions in a comment on this article. As always, you can also give the episode a star rating out of 5.

Terror lurks in the cornfields of Provence, but only a sad and lonely painter can see it… and that lonely painter just so happens to be none other than Vincent Van Gogh, who the Doctor and Amy are set to encounter when Series 5 continues next week!

In an episode appropriately titled Vincent and the Doctor, our heroes find themselves shoulder to shoulder with a deadly alien, but does even our beloved Time Lord have what it takes to save the day?

The episode, written by Richard Curtis (Love Actually/The Vicar of Dibley) airs Saturday June 5th at 18:40 on BBC1/HD.

We’re now just one week away from the long-awaited release of the first instalment of the brand new Adventure Games, City of the Daleks, and as such, the official site has today posted an update from one of its executive producers, Charles Cecil.

In the blog, he gives us the last minute lowdown, describing the visual aspects of the game as “stunning”, and he also offers some teasers for the three remaining episodes. Not long now!

It’s just turned midnight, which means it’s now officially Saturday, or, as we like to call it, Doctor Who Day!

The last time we saw them, the Doctor and Nasreen had just discovered a whole civilisation of Silurians living under the Earth, Amy was about to be dissected, and Rory, Ambrose and Tony were keeping their beady eyes on Alaya - no pressure then! Tonight, the cliffhanger will be resolved and the Doctor will face his toughest challenge yet, finding himself in a battle in which he can’t take sides.

Tune in tonight at 19:00 for all the answers (with a few shocks and surprises guaranteed along the way!), and join us straight after at 19:50 to have your say in our latest episode discussion. We’ve got a feeling there will be lots to say about this one…
