Anatomy of a Finale: Download the Scripts for Eps 11 and 12

BBC - Doctor Who - Thu, 12/10/2015 - 8:00am

Heaven Sent and Hell Bent were two wildly different episodes. Both unique, bold and startling they combined to create a two-part adventure – a hybrid, you might say – that brought Series 9 to an unforgettable finale.

BBC iPlayer users can watch both episodes online but we’re also giving you the chance to download and print off the scripts for the stories… Written by Doctor Who’s BAFTA-winning show runner, Steven Moffat, they offer a fascinating insight into the construction of a major Doctor Who adventure. You can access the scripts for Heaven Sent and Hell Bent now!

In addition, we’re also releasing some previously unseen storyboards from Hell Bent, illustrating how the demands of the script evolve into the scenes that we see in the finished episode.

And if all that wasn’t enough, don’t forget we have loads of behind the scenes videos for Heaven Sent and Hell Bent plus fact files for both ep11 and ep12.

In short, there’s everything you could want to know about the finale without actually entering the Matrix!

TARDIS: The Stuff You Missed

It was the week of the finale, farewells and looking forward to Christmas, so here’s our journey through all of it… the short way round!

I can see Clara, now…

We said hello and goodbye to Clara who returned for the heart-breaking series 9 finale. We’re all going to miss Jenna Coleman but we caught up with her before she hopped into this weird American diner that seemed to appear out of nowhere, and she looked back over her time on Doctor Who, shared her funniest moment and revealed which was the toughest scene to shoot…

Advent of Adventure

We launched our annual countdown to Christmas and it’s already bursting at the seasonal seams with exclusive pics, videos and much more. There’s a new treat added every day so make a daily date with the Adventure Calendar!

Maisie Camaraderie

The return of Maisie Williams meant the return of her ever-popular #MaisieCam vids which show some lovely moments on set and location. Enjoy the vid below and find more right here!

We celebrated series 9 with a look back over all twelve episodes... The arcs, the highlights, the bits that made us cheer and the moments that made us cry. They’re all covered as we raise a glass of lemonade to the Doctor’s latest adventures!

2015: A Spouse Odyssey

There’s always another adventure waiting for the Doctor and so moments after series 9 finished we were already looking forward to this year’s Christmas Special with this new trailer for The Husbands of River Song!

Celebrating Series 9!

BBC - Doctor Who - Sat, 12/05/2015 - 4:05pm

Excitement for Peter Capaldi’s second series as the Doctor began building in earnest on 9 July, 2015 when we dropped this trailer… It seems like a lifetime ago, but do you remember watching this for the first time?

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14535000036229","pid":"p02wns22","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p02wns22\/player"}}); });

It hinted at many of the things that were to come. A more relaxed, ‘rock ‘n’ roll’ Doctor complete with shades and guitar; the Time Lord and Clara plunging into big new adventures with an undisguised relish! And look! The hugs! The two time-travellers’ friendship now stronger than ever. When The Magician’s Apprentice aired on 19 September it was a joy to see all that confirmed…

The Time Lord who questioned whether he was a good man had evolved into a figure whose huge entrance was playing a guitar on top of a tank! Embracing Clara like he never wanted to let go and the two of them hurling themselves headlong into adventure!

The Magician’s Apprentice / The Witch’s Familiar was also crammed with great humour, often courtesy of Michelle Gomez as Missy. “Between us and him is everything the deadliest race in all of history can throw at us,’ she tells Clara at one point. ‘We, on the other hand, have a pointy stick…’

And Davros was back… Seen as both the malevolent monster defeated by the Doctor on so many occasions and as a terrified child, trapped on the battlefields of Skaro. Perhaps only Doctor Who could end an adventure with its hero holding the hand of his deadly enemy whilst leading him to safety and advocating mercy…

The second story – Under the Lake / Before the Flood - saw Clara more impetuous than ever and showed the Doctor’s real concern by her lust for adventure. He talked about his duty of care to his companion but when trapped on a base, surrounded by killer ghosts, there wasn’t much he could offer in terms of safety!

The adventure also introduced the terrifying Fisher King and a bunch of military personal working in the ‘haunted’ base. Many fans instantly took to the sharp, no-nonsense and courageous leader of the group, Cass (played by the brilliant Sophie Stone) whose ability to lip read (the character was deaf) proved pivotal in the story.

And from an underwater base in the future, the TARDIS next took us to a Viking village where we met Ashildr for the first time…

There was some glorious humour with the Doctor on top form as he and Clara arrived at the settlement (‘He hasn’t even got a yo-yo!’) but on a more serious level, his companion’s ability to replicate his moves was becoming more apparent. At one point she virtually talked a warrior race into backing down… Before young Ashildr’s aggression undid her good work!

And of course, when the Doctor fused Mire tech with Ashildr to make her ‘immortal’ he reflected she was a kind of hybrid. After Davros’ reference to the Hybrid, our interest was piqued…

The Woman Who Lived saw the return of Ashildr. At once a helter-skelter romp with highwaymen, chases and high-jinx on the scaffold, it was also a poignant look at why figures like the Doctor and Ashildr need mortals… ‘People like us,’ he tells her, ‘we go on too long. We forget what matters. The last thing we need is each other. We need the mayflies. See, the mayflies, they know more than we do. They know how beautiful and precious life is because it's fleeting.’

But at the end of The Woman Who Lived we glimpsed Ashildr keeping an eye on the Doctor and heard Clara tell him, ‘Don't worry, daft old man. I'm not going anywhere.’ Eek. We always worry when characters say that in the final line of an episode…

The Zygon Invasion / The Zygon Inversion saw the return of Kate, UNIT, Osgood and the Zygons! A dark thriller of a two-parter where things were seldom as they seemed, we saw the best and worst of humanity and aliens as the Doctor’s astonishing, impassioned plea against war saved the day… But there was also talk of Osgood being like a hybrid… The creature was clearly weighing heavily on the Doctor’s mind…

But the adventure also offered another reminder of how impossibly attached the Doctor had become to the Impossible Girl. ‘I let Clara Oswald get inside my head,’ he confided to Bonnie. ‘Trust me. She doesn't leave…’

Sleep No More was the kind of episode which reminds us that after over 50 years of adventures, Doctor Who can still do something completely new… Written by the brilliant Mark Gatiss this was a ‘found footage’ episode and although it contained many staples of a ‘base under siege’ story, it was fresh and original in the way the action unfolded and the chilling, masterful twist at the end had many people reaching for the corner of their eye, nervously…

And then… Then it was time to Face the Raven! It was a delight to see the return of Rigsy and an older version of Ashildr, now known as Mayor Me. And the actual basis of the story was terrific – that certain streets are hidden from view and are home to all the strange, strange creatures…

But, of course, Face the Raven will chiefly be remembered for this scene…

Clara’s transformation into someone who was so like the Doctor that she would, in a heartbeat, risk her life for someone else, had played out with tragic consequences and the Time Lord’s cold fury made the wait for Heaven Sent almost unbearable…

The penultimate episode of the series was another slice of brilliance with writer Steven Moffat, director Rachel Talalay and Peter Capaldi all at the top of their game and combining to create something very special. A virtual one-hander it traced the Doctor’s attempt to deal with the loss of Clara and as he punched his way through a wall 400 times harder than diamond, it became clear that her loss had made him unstoppable. Some Time Lord.

During the final scenes we witnessed him emerge into the glare of Gallifrey and give a message to a young lad on the sands. ‘Tell them, I know what they did, and I'm on my way. And if they ask you who I am, tell them, I came the long way round…’

Hell Bent rounded off the series in style… A battle with the Time Lords that was at once epic and personal with the Doctor defeating Rassilon without firing a single shot. And yet he was hell bent on rescuing Clara, of fulfilling his duty of care… This meant the Doctor going further than ever before, even shooting the General who, of course, regenerated. He managed to rescue Clara, plucking her from her timeline on the trap street after she had ‘faced the raven’.

And whatever the rights and wrongs of his actions, it meant she was ultimately free to continue her adventures. The Doctor fled Gallifrey – not for the first time - and for a period had become a traveller without the TARDIS, with no memory of who Clara was and no idea where he might find her…

In the end, Clara Oswald zoomed across the cosmos in a TARDIS with Ashildr, intent on new adventures as she travelled to Gallifrey… the long way round! And the Doctor, inevitably and movingly, was reunited with his time machine… As he gazed around his home and slipped his jacket back on, there was a sense of the Doctor being back. Sonic screwdriver in hand, piloting the TARDIS to brilliant new adventures across all of time and space!

The Doctor returns on Christmas Day in The Husbands of River Song!

Why we’re hell bent on Hell Bent!

BBC - Doctor Who - Fri, 12/04/2015 - 7:37am

A series finale is always something very special and this year’s offers a whole load of things to look forward to…

He’s back!

The Doctor has returned to his home planet… The long way round! He’s unsurprisingly angry at what he’s been put through and we can’t wait to see how and where he directs his fury…

Enemies!

We don’t know how they fit into the finale but any episode featuring Daleks, Cybermen and Weeping Angels gets our vote. Just. Don’t. Blink…

Look who’s back!

We’re big fans of Ashildr so it’s great to see Maisie Williams back in the finale. It’s the one time that a ‘Me, Me, Me’ scenario is perfectly acceptable.

Lines to die for!

We love the exchange the Doctor has with the General in this trailer and reckon there’ll be some terrific back and forth in Hell Bent!

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14532183034423","pid":"p039dbhc","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p039dbhc\/player"}}); }); Bones!

Yes! Ken Bones is back as the General. He brings such gravitas and was so great in The Day of the Doctor that we’re intrigued to know how he’ll handle the Doctor’s return. And wait a minute… In the video above, is the Doctor striking him..? We want to know and make no bones about it… (Ouch. Sorry).

Enigmas

They don’t come much bigger than the Hybrid… Will Hell Bent solve the mystery of who or what the Hybrid is? Does the video below give us any hint? That is, that is text book enigmatic…

...and judging by what Steven Moffat has to say about the episode, Hell Bent will be no exception.

A running time of just under 65 minutes makes this a bumper bonanza of Doctor Who! So, with our hero back on his home planet, the stakes raised to the max and with old friends and enemies gathering on Gallifrey, the Doctor might be in the Constellation of Kasterborous but from 8pm, on Saturday we’ll be in front of the telly enjoying a finale to remember!

Long Distance Clara…

BBC - Doctor Who - Sat, 11/21/2015 - 4:02pm

It’s not often the Doctor has to thank Missy for anything, but it was his old frenemy who originally put Clara in touch with the Doctor in The Bells of Saint John. Of course, by that stage he’d already met three ‘versions’ of her …

He encountered the ‘Oswin Oswald’ version in Asylum of the Daleks – the brave, cheeky but ultimately doomed ‘soufflé girl’ who helped the Doctor escape his oldest enemies.

And in Victorian London he was helped by Clara Oswin Oswald - a young barmaid and governess born in November, 1866. Although she was killed by the evil ‘Ice Governess’ she now had the Doctor’s attention and he resolved to solve the mystery of the girl twice dead… He came close to a clue when he met Clara as a child, but failing to recognise her, he allowed her to simply walk away…

Although Clara became the Doctor’s companion in The Bells of Saint John she remained the ‘Impossible Girl’. A conundrum to be solved. Or as the Doctor put it, ‘…a mystery wrapped in an enigma…’

The Doctor even visited Caliburn House to seek the opinion of empath Emma Grayling who simply told him, ‘She’s a perfectly ordinary girl. Very pretty, very clever, more scared than she lets on…’

In The Name of the Doctor the mystery was solved when Clara followed the Great Intelligence into the Doctor’s timeline. She was splintered into many different versions of herself, each intent on rescuing the Doctor… He was able to extract her and return her to our normal plain where she became a school teacher at Coal Hill!

She helped the Doctors make the right choice in The Day of the Doctor and persuaded the Time Lords to grant him a new regeneration cycle in The Time of the Doctor. But the new, spikier Doctor shocked her… He asked if he was a good man and Clara had to admit she no longer knew…

During the early days of this new Doctor she met and fell in love with Danny Pink. Juggling life with Danny and the Doctor was tricky, not helped by Time Lord’s aversion to the man he called PE!

Over time she grew attached to the ‘new’ Doctor, warming to his understated kindness and the way that his old heroism and bravery were still guiding this timeless hero. After Danny died defending Earth she threw herself more rigorously into her adventures with the Doctor, relishing the excitement and helter-skelter action that travels in the TARDIS inevitably delivered…

That reckless streak concerned the Doctor and he attempted to curb her enthusiasm… But when Clara saw an opportunity to help Rigsy, even though it meant putting her life in danger, she seized the opportunity. This time there would be no escape and she was forced to face the raven. She asked the Doctor to be proud of here and then, unflinching and brave, she walked across ancient cobbles and…

Clara will be missed by the Doctor, by Rigsy, maybe even by Ashildr and certainly by the many whose lives she touched. But Clara Oswald, the funny, feisty, heroic and human Impossible Girl, will be missed most keenly by us.
