Comic Con: TWO Series 7 episode titles confirmed!
First up, Episode 2 of the new series is called Dinosaurs on a Spaceship. It’s written by Chris Chibnall and directed by Saul Metzstein. Funnily enough, the title of the episode was previously confirmed by the Daily Star back in May.
The episode is followed by A Town Called Mercy, penned by Toby Whithouse and also directed by Saul Metzstein.
According to a press release issued today, the dinosaur adventure required “one of the largest sets to date”. It guest stars Mark Williams as Rory’s father, Brian, and Rupert Graves as Riddell, “a big game hunter”. The Western-themed episode, meanwhile, was filmed on location in Spain. It co-stars Adrian Scarborough and Ben Browder.
“Dinosaurs On A Spaceship – what more do you need! The Doctor will come face to face with some of the most monstrous creatures evolution has ever produced, on some of the most monstrous sets we’ve ever built,” Steven Moffat said. “We took one look at Chris Chibnall’s brilliant script and said to ourselves ‘We’re going to need a bigger corridor’. And Toby Whithouse’s A Town Called Mercy takes us into a genre Doctor Who hasn’t attempted since the Sixties – it’s a full blooded Western. We knew from the start we need some serious location shooting for this one, and given the most iconic American setting imaginable, there was only one place to go – Spain.”
