Christmas has come early for Doctor Who fans who have been waiting to get their hands on the Twelfth Doctor’s brand new Sonic Screwdriver.

The latest incarnation of the Time Lord’s iconic device was introduced in the closing moments of Series 9’s finale, Hell Bent, last year, with fans subsequently campaigning for the release of a toy replica to add to their collections. Character Options has today revealed that their wishes will come true this summer with the release of this faithful recreation which features four light modes with accompanying sound effects.

The Twelfth Doctor’s new Sonic Screwdriver will be released this summer, priced at £14.99, and can be pre-ordered now from Doctor Who merchandise retailers.

If you took everything from him, betrayed him, trapped him, and broke both his hearts…how far might the Doctor go? Returning to Gallifrey, the Doctor faces the Time Lords in a struggle that will take him to the end of time itself. Who is the Hybrid? And what is the Doctor’s confession?

The TARDIS reopened its doors in September as the Doctor’s past deeds came back to haut him in The Magician’s Apprentice. Now, three months later, TV’s favourite hero has been left betrayed, trapped and heartbroken (and then some!) by a struggle that vowed to take him to the end of time itself. Basically, the Series 9 finale has landed. Doesn’t time fly, eh?

The last time we saw the Doctor in the climactic closing moments of Heaven Sent, he had just managed to escape the grasp of the fearsome Veil (admittedly, it did take him billions of years…) to find himself back where it all began. Where the second sun rises in the south, the mountains shine, the leaves on the trees are silver… and a mythical Hybrid is destined to obliterate the Time Lords out of existence. Well, it’s can’t all be good news, now, can it?

Still, it could’ve been worse. Actually, we take that back. It’s a good job it’s Christmas in a few weeks, mind, because tonight’s episode really was like unwrapping all of our presents at once. With the return of Gallifrey and the Time Lords alike and a host of familiar friends and foes, Hell Bent surely was the Doctor Who episode that many fans have been waiting for. But what did you think of this year’s finale? Were you left satisfied with how the story panned out, or are there still loose ends that have been left untied? Let us know what you thought of Hell Bent and its accompanying shocks and surprises in the comments below…

steven-says-series-9-finale-is-devastating

Steven Moffat has warned Doctor Who fans that they’ll be left “a tiny bit devastated” after this year’s series finale.

Series 9 reaches its dramatic conclusion in Hell Bent tonight on BBC One at 8pm as the Doctor returns to Gallifrey to face a struggle that will take him to the end of time. “Hopefully people will be satisfied,” the writer and showrunner told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s pretty emotional stuff, and we get quite dark. So it’s quite the journey. It’s a huge, epic, Star Wars world and Rachel Talalay has got a tremendous range as a director to cover all of that.”

Our finale discussion will be open from 9:05pm and we’ll be giving away a bundle of Doctor Who prizes - worth over £70 – to one lucky visitor who posts their review of the episode.

“I think it’s time to tell the truth.” Watch the next time trailer for tonight’s finale!

series-9-to-conclude-with-extended-episodes

It has been announced that this year’s series of Doctor Who will conclude with extended episodes as both parts of its finale have been given longer running times.

Firstly, Heaven Sent – in which the Doctor finds himself trapped in a world unlike any other he has seen before - will air on BBC One on Saturday 28th November from 8.05pm, lasting 55 minutes, while our hero has been given 65 minutes in Hell Bent, on Saturday 4th December at 8pm, to face a struggle that will take him to the end of time itself. Both parts are written by Steven Moffat and directed by Rachel Talalay.

The drama will intensify for the Time Lord in this week’s episode, Face the Raven, as old friends and enemies return in a magical alien world where not everybody will get out alive.

series-9-finale-has-he-been-here-before

With just 4 episodes of Series 9 left, it’s safe to say that we still know next to nothing about this year’s anticipated finale, Hell Bent.

While that ultimately adds to the anticipation, an interesting discussion has begun thanks to a new still from the episode which surfaced online this week. The intriguing image depicts Peter Capaldi as the Doctor in what looks like an American diner, but eagle-eyed fans will notice that it’s the same one that was featured in The Impossible Astronaut following the Time Lord’s death at Lake Silencio in Series 6.

The picture also complements the fact that Clara Oswald will seemingly be taking up a job as a waitress in the finale, which has left us wondering how/if the two are connected and, generally, what the hell is even going on anymore! As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts and weird and wonderful theories so join the conversation in the comments. Oh, and here’s that picture in all its glory. There just has to be a reasonable explanation, right?

“Remember me…” Share your theories about Clara Oswald’s imminent departure!

The BBC has released the official plot details for this year’s highly anticipated Doctor Who finale.

Series 9 will reach its explosive climax on BBC One on Saturday 5th December in Hell Bent, written by Steven Moffat and directed by Rachel Talalay, which already sounds like it’s going to be one of the biggest and most dramatic finales to date.

Don’t believe us? Just check out its synopsis below and see for yourself!

Full details are shrouded in secrecy, of course, so we’ll just have to wait until next month for all of our questions to be answered. In the meantime, though, the new series continues tonight in Sleep No More at 8:15pm on BBC One and you can check out the trailer, here.

If you took everything from him, betrayed him, trapped him, and broke both his hearts… how far might the Doctor go?

rachel-talalay-returns-for-series-9-finale

Rachel Talalay will be returning to Doctor Who to helm the upcoming Series 9 finale, it has been confirmed today.

The director, whose previous credits include Supernatural, Ally McBeal and Kyle XY, is no stranger to the Twelfth Doctor’s adventures having previously called the shots for last year’s finale, Dark Water and Death in Heaven, which featured the shock reveal of Missy’s identity.

As usual, this year’s climax is written by Steven Moffat who has set himself a “ludicrous challenge” in Episode 11.

Are you glad that Rachel is returning? You can read our exclusive interview with her, here.
