Doctor Who Series 7 Part 2 Episode Synopses & New Images!

Doctor Who LogoThe end of March approaches and with it Easter. More importantly, Saturday 30th March, 2013 marks the return to our screens of The Doctor … at last!

This is the first major anniversary we’ve had where Doctor Who is on TV, so that’s why, for me, this is the start of the anniversary! BBC America have kindly sent us some information about the forthcoming episodes, and after the break I present some images and episode synopses that they have provided, you can also view their new trailer here!

Matt Smith: The Doctor
Jenna-Louise Coleman: Clara Oswin Oswald
Doctor Who Ice Warriors - Episode 8

The Doctor kicks off this new run of adventures by searching for his companion Clara – an Impossible Girl he’s already lost twice. Together they find themselves battling monsters on distant alien planets, trapped in a Russian submarine with a deadly passenger, chasing terrifying ghosts, delving into the heart of the TARDIS, facing the Crimson Horror in Victorian Yorkshire, and coming face to face with an army of upgraded Cybermen. The action grows and the Doctor’s oldest secret threatens to be revealed as the world’s longest running science fiction series builds toward its explosive 50th anniversary in November 2013. Doctor Who premieres Saturday, March 30, 8:00pm ET/PT on BBC AMERICA as part of Supernatural Saturday.

Following the premiere of Doctor Who, Matt Smith will be one of the first guests on BBC America’s The Nerdist on Saturday, March 30, 10:00pm ET/PT.

The Bells of Saint John – Episode 6

The Doctor’s search for Clara Oswald brings him to modern day London, where Wi-Fi is everywhere. Humanity lives in a Wi-Fi soup. But something dangerous is lurking in the signals, picking off minds and imprisoning them. As Clara becomes the target of this insidious menace, the Doctor races to save her and the world from an ancient enemy.

Episode credits: Written by Steven Moffat, directed by Colm McCarthy (Ripper Street, The Tudors), and produced by Denise Paul (Taggart).

The Rings of Akhaten  – Episode 7

Clara wants to see something awesome, so the Doctor whisks her off to the inhabited rings of the planet Akhaten, where the Festival of Offerings is in full swing. Clara meets the young Queen of Years as the pilgrims and natives ready for the ceremony. But something is stirring in the pyramid, and a sacrifice will be demanded.

Episode credits: Written by Neil Cross (Mama, Luther), directed by Farren Blackburn (Luther, The Fades) and produced by Denise Paul

Cold War – Episode 8

The Doctor and Clara land on a damaged Russian Submarine in 1983 as it spirals out of control into the ocean depths. An alien creature is loose on board, having escaped from a block of Arctic ice. With tempers flaring and a cargo of nuclear weapons on board, it’s not just the crew but the whole of humanity at stake!

Episode credits: Written by Mark Gatiss (Sherlock) and directed by Douglas Mackinnon (Silent Witness).

Hide – Episode 9

Clara and the Doctor arrive at Caliburn House, a haunted mansion sat alone on a desolate moor. Within its walls, a ghost hunting Professor and a gifted psychic are searching for the Witch of the Well. Her apparition appears throughout the history of the building, but is she really a ghost? And what is chasing her?

Episode credits: Written by Neil Cross and directed by Jamie Payne (The Hour, Call the Midwife).

These eight episodes mark the real beginning of the anniversary year for me. I know we’ve had some short stories and so-on out already, but I’ll be getting those in their collected edition towards the end of the year.

Tomorrow, we’ll have a series of interviews with the cast and creators as well as some new epsiode poster images. I couldn’t be more eager for this half of the series to start – we have Ice Warriors (who look great), Neil Gaiman’s take on the Cybermen (I’m hoping they hark back to the olden days!) and the Mystery of the Impossible Girl to discover…
