Clara’s 10 Most Heroic Moments

BBC - Doctor Who - Sat, 11/21/2015 - 4:01pm

In the end, Clara’s compassion and bravery led to her death on the strange, alien street in the heart of London. Her decision to help Rigsy was typical of Clara Oswald and to celebrate one of the Doctor’s greatest companions we look back on ten moments of bravery when the Impossible Girl did all she possibly could…

Not technically Clara, but a version of her saved the Doctor in Asylum of the Daleks. She managed to overcome her Dalek conversion and gave him a way out to freedom, advising him to run… and remember!

In The Rings of Akhaten the Doctor faced an entity so powerful that even he was unable to defeat it, but undaunted, Clara faced the adversary armed only with her wits, determination… and a leaf! She took it down, running rings (of Akhaten) around it!

In The Name of the Doctor Clara risked everything to help the Time Lord… We discovered that she was splintered across time and space, rescuing her friend from countless perils and even persuading him to take the TARDIS he ended up stealing when he left Gallifrey!

Heroism of a different kind from Clara in the 50th anniversary special, persuading him to reconsider his actions as he seemed set on the destruction of his home planet… It may have been The Day of the Doctor, but in a way, it was really Clara who saved the day.

Whilst in the town of Christmas, when the aged Eleventh Doctor was on the point of death – out of hope and out of regenerations – it was Clara who furiously and lovingly convinced them to grant him a new regeneration cycle. Best Christmas Present ever?

In Deep Breath her best friend in the world had a new face and a strikingly different personality, but she chose to trust him and embrace him, because that’s what friendship – and courage - is all about.

In Death in Heaven Clara helped Danny and the Doctor defeat the Cybermen, even though she knew it meant losing the man she loved. And to top it all she then deceived the Doctor into thinking she and Danny were doing fine, just because she wanted the Doctor to be okay.

In The Magician’s Apprentice / The Witch’s Familiar Clara made it clear she’d do anything to protect the Doctor, facing Missy on her own and even entering the terrifying city of the Daleks, all to help her best friend!

When the TARDIS took the Doctor and Clara to Viking times we saw her taking on Odin single-handed and shortly after she convinced the Doctor to help and ultimately save the villagers. The episode was called The Girl Who Died but we loved the woman who was there for the Doctor.

In Face the Raven she faced her own fears, accepting her death in a typically heroic fashion. And so for helping Rigsy, her final orders to the Doctor and such bravery as she walked to her death, we put this episode number one in our countdown of Clara’s most heroic moments!

Clara and the Doctors

BBC - Doctor Who - Sat, 11/21/2015 - 4:00pm

Clara Oswald was a total one-off in many ways. Obvs. But one of the coolest unique things about her was that she featured with each of the first thirteen Doctors! That’s got to be worth a closer look, right?

He’s the One!

Clara not only met the first Doctor, she persuaded him to take the TARDIS that became ‘his’ time machine. Good call, Miss Oswald!

Two’s Company!

She encountered the Second Doctor very briefly in The Name of his Doctor. He was zipping along at full pelt… Possibly fleeing the Terrible Zodin..?

The Power of Three

It’s the Third Doctor in ‘good old’ Bessie, driving his quirky yellow roadster through the wilds of Gallifrey, as seen in The Five Doctors.

Four to Doomsday?

Clara glimpsed the Time Lord during the mid-point of his Fourth incarnation… The moment below occurred for him during the Sontarans’ attempt to conquer his home planet in The Invasion of Time.

V for Victory!

The Fifth Doctor is in a pickle but anyone who’s watched Arc of Infinity knows he won out in the end…

Six of One…

The Sixth Doctor strides quickly through a corridor behind Clara and she spins around, somehow aware of his presence. Possibly she heard that very loud coat he’s rocking…

The Magnificent Seven

Clara glimpsed him before anyone said ‘don’t leave me hanging’ or the Seventh Doctor might have been yelling those words in this moment taken from Dragonfire, the adventure where he first met Ace.

The Never Hateful Eight

In this blink and you’ll miss it moment, the Eighth Doctor rushes past Clara. He appears to be wearing the garb he grabbed in his debut adventure as opposed to the more world-worn clobber he worked in The Night of the Doctor.

War Path

Although she’d already glimpsed the War Doctor, she got to know this incarnation of the Time Lord during The Day of the Doctor and it was clear he had a very big soft spot for his future companion. ‘If I grow to be half the man that you are, Clara Oswald,’ he once told her, ‘I shall be happy indeed!’

Lots of planets have a Nine

All the shots above (aside from the pic at the top and the one of the War Doctor) are from The Name of the Doctor, taken from the episode’s pre-title sequence. But various versions of the Doctor dashed past Clara towards the close of the adventure, just before the Eleventh Doctor met the War Doctor. This pic is taken from that sequence as we’re briefly reunited with the fantastic Ninth Doctor…

X the Unknown

She may not have known in him in the pic immediately below (again from The Name of the Doctor) but Clara got to know the Tenth Doctor better during the epic, The Day of the Doctor.

Starting Eleven

Of course, when we first encountered a ‘version’ of Clara she was the ‘soufflé girl’ although heart-breakingly, the Eleventh Doctor ultimately discovered she’d already been converted into a Dalek… The Doctor then encountered Clara in Victorian London during The Snowmen and finally, in The Bells of Saint John, ‘our’ Clara agreed to join him in his adventures throughout time and space…

Twelve: Angry Man

Her relationship with the Twelfth Doctor was initially fraught but over time their friendship became stronger than ever. Now he’s lost her we can only guess how angry, vengeful and spectacular his next move will be…

Why we can’t wait to Face the Raven!

BBC - Doctor Who - Fri, 11/20/2015 - 4:00am

As we hurtle towards the series finale it feels to us like things are becoming ominous and even more exciting… Judging from the trailers (see below) there’s a lot to look forward to in the new adventure and here are some of the things we can’t wait to enjoy…

Ashildr is back!

Maisie Williams returns as Me, but can we trust her? Last time the Doctor saw her she was an eerie presence in the background of a photo, simply watching… Will she become the Doctor’s ally… or his adversary?

Rigsy returns!

We’re big fans of both Rigsy and Joivan Wade, the actor who plays him. He first appeared in Flatline and we’re looking forward to seeing what’s happened in his life after he helped defeat the Boneless. And what new crisis brings him back into the world of Clara and the Doctor?

Goodbye, Doctor…

We know Jenna Coleman is leaving soon, but could episode 10 be connected with Clara’s departure? Is she saying goodbye to the Doctor forever in this trailer? We hope not!

In the introduction below, Peter Capaldi talks about hidden streets in London… But what is keeping them hidden? How? And perhaps most intriguingly – why?

We’ve glimpsed a Cyberman in the trailer and know the Judoon feature in the episode… Will there be more old enemies lurking in the shadows, and if so, what’s their plan?

Write this way…

It’s always great to watch episodes by new writers and see the ideas and fresh adventures they bring to the world of Doctor Who. Face the Raven is written by Who newbie Sarah Dollard and we love this interview she gave about working on the show…

Sometimes the look of an episode draws you into it… The exotic alien locale of The Rings of Akhaten or the leafy London of In the Forest of the Night are obvious examples and we’re loving the visuals of this episode, from the narrow confines of the street to the breath-taking shots of the TARDIS flying over London with Clara hanging out the door… Hang on! Does it look to you as if she’s about to fall?

‘It’s a number and it’s counting down to zero…’

But what happens when it reaches zero?

Steven Moffat has revealed that someone must face the raven, but who will it be and what does it actually mean? Find out on Saturday, 8.10pm on BBC One!

CODENAME: SLEEP NO MORE

BBC - Doctor Who - Fri, 11/13/2015 - 8:23am

UNIT: INTERNAL MEMO. ALL LEVEL 8 DESKS. TOP SECRET.

Our colleagues in the Black Archive have recently examined content which they believe to have originated from the 38th century and we need your help… Can you throw light on the latest artefacts acquired by UNIT from our ‘contact’ in Utah?

We’re particularly keen to learn more about these two snippets of video footage which Malcolm claims have somehow been broadcast from the future… (Yes, we know it’s a crazy theory. He’s over tired. Maybe he just needs a bit more sleep?)

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14489784044221","pid":"p037nmj4","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p037nmj4\/player"}}); }); You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14489784044225","pid":"p037nq7v","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p037nq7v\/player"}}); });

Although if asked we will deny requesting outside help, we have already questioned a number of experts about the meaning of the footage… Our interviews with them lead us to designate this whole episode, SLEEP NO MORE…

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14489784044230","pid":"p037l8gr","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p037l8gr\/player"}}); });

In addition to the experts already consulted, UNIT is keen to talk to the individual on the left of this shot…

Aside from bearing a striking resemblance to a young Professor Richard Lazarus, we believe he is connected with Sleep No More and indeed many ‘episodes’ that have previously come to the attention of both Torchwood and this organisation…

Finally, our contact in Utah supplied us with this footage that offers intriguing evidence of who might be in league with the individual above... Have you seen this man?

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14489784044244","pid":"p02yvk3k","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p02yvk3k\/player"}}); });

UPDATE!
A full, transmission of SLEEP NO MORE has been scheduled to broadcast on Saturday, 14 November at 20:15 on the BBC One frequency. ALERT! We understand there may be great danger in the footage and are therefore urging potential viewers:

YOU MUST NOT WATCH THIS…YOU CAN NEVER UNSEE IT!

Tips for living in a Zygon State

BBC - Doctor Who - Thu, 11/05/2015 - 12:22pm

The threat of a Zygon State is now terrifyingly real. So… if the Doctor can’t save the peace on Saturday and the rebel shape shifters succeed, here are some tips on how to get by in a Britain ruled by blobs...

Seeing Double

You’d better learn how to distinguish Zygon from human. Take a look at these pics of Clara… Can you tell good Clara from evil Clara? Answers during Saturday’s episode…

https://twitter.com/bbcdoctorwho/status/662318805364973569

require(['jquery-1.9', 'third-party'], function($, ThirdParty) { var embed = new ThirdParty({ container : $('#third-party-14488983043951'), url : 'https://twitter.com/bbcdoctorwho/status/662318805364973569' }); }); Just good fronds…

Careful where you tread! If someone brings you to a cave that’s glowing orange and full of fronds, DO NOT believe them when they try to pass it off as a Santa’s grotto that went a bit wrong. Study this video well. It shows you what a Zygon cave looks like…

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14488983043964","pid":"p03742rt","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p03742rt\/player"}}); }); Not feeling yourself today?

In a Zygon State, there could be a Zygon duplicate of you wandering about and being rude to teachers and your friends. The educational video below illustrates what it might feel like to talk to your own double…

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14488983043973","pid":"p03741cf","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p03741cf\/player"}}); }); Resistance is Useful!

If we do find ourselves in a Zygon State, we need to fight back and recapture our nation! Be on the lookout for UNIT personnel – they deal with the odd, the unexplained, anything on Earth... or
Beyond, so fighting back against alien overlords will be right up their street. Look out Kate Stewart, Osgood and of course, the Doctor!

Trust No-one!

Not even twins who look perfectly innocent…

https://twitter.com/bbcdoctorwho/status/662318955818807297

require(['jquery-1.9', 'third-party'], function($, ThirdParty) { var embed = new ThirdParty({ container : $('#third-party-14488983043995'), url : 'https://twitter.com/bbcdoctorwho/status/662318955818807297' }); }); A little less conversation…

Don’t try to engage your new overlords in anything approaching polite chit chat. Before you know it, they’ll be responding to the most innocuous comment with threats like, ‘All resistance will be crushed!’ as this footage, recently retrieved from the Black Archive, illustrates…

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14488983044000","pid":"p01crr35","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p01crr35\/player"}}); }); If you can’t beat ’em...

Join them! Enjoy all the perks of being a Zygon overlord - except the morphing bit, obviously - by studying this video and then pretending to be a Zygon!

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14488983044008","pid":"p01m3gk3","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p01m3gk3\/player"}}); });

Right now the future hangs in the balance... Will we soon be living in a Zygon State? BBC One will be bringing you updates in a special news broadcast called The Zygon Inversion which will be transmitted on Saturday at 8pm… DO NOT MISS IT!

TARDIS: The stuff you might have missed…

BBC - Doctor Who - Tue, 11/03/2015 - 5:30am

What with Zygon invasions, the end of the world and everything (don’t worry – we’re just talking about the latest ep) it’s been quite a week in Who-land. So, in case you missed anything that materialised in the past 7 days or so, here’s our pick of the top 5 things you really need to be across!

On the trail of the trailer

Lots of you shook angry fists into the air because there was no ‘Next Time’ trailer at the end of The Zygon Invasion. Sorry! But at least we’ve got our hands/Zygon mits on this new trailer for episode 8. Enjoy!

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14483799107123","pid":"p036nt44","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p036nt44\/player"}}); }); We’ve released Osgood!

This week we saw Osgood captured by Zygons, but we’ve released her! To clarify – yes, the Doctor rescued her, but we’ve released her as a new character you can now build into your Doctor Who games! So if you’re an Osgood fan, pop along to the Game Maker and start making and sharing games featuring UNIT’s finest cosplayer!

Talking of which…

Since meeting Osgood in The Day of the Doctor she’s become a firm fave, so we decided that one video on her just wasn’t enough… Therefore, in the Zygon tradition of two of everything we’ve a brace of vids, featuring Ingrid Oliver, Steven Moffat and Peter Capaldi, all sharing secrets about the character and her dramatic return!

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14483799107130","pid":"p036mzyd","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p036mzyd\/player"}}); }); You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14483799107133","pid":"p036mtq1","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p036mtq1\/player"}}); }); The Producers

We recently asked for questions to put to Doctor Who producers Nikki Wilson and Derek Ritchie and you responded in force! We’ll be bringing you some of their answers this week, but we start with a video covering one of the most popular questions – what were their fave episodes to produce?

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14483799107137","pid":"p036y3b6","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p036y3b6\/player"}}); }); What to do in the event of a Zygon invasion…

After The Zygon Invasion this is now a very real concern for humankind, so we issued this easy-to-follow, 10-point guide

Other stuff… We released some great new galleries showcasing production artwork and behind the scenes images plus a quiz for The Zygon Invasion and a whole bunch of character profiles for the Doctor’s friends!

What to do in the event of a Zygon Invasion

BBC - Doctor Who - Thu, 10/29/2015 - 11:00am

UNIT intel has predicted a Zygon Invasion will be launched on Saturday, 8.15pm. In order to alleviate public hysteria we’re issuing an easy to follow, 10-point guide to what you should do in the event of a Zygon invasion!

PANIC!!!

If anyone tells you NOT to panic, ask that person if they’re being serious. We’re talking about living, bobbling lumps of hate that can murder and morph with frightening ease. Panic on the streets of wherever you are is perfectly acceptable.

DON’T PANIC!!!

Yes, very Arthur Dent, as someone once said, but after you’ve shaken off your ‘panic freak out’, attempt to calm down. Have a jelly baby. Try to think straight. Not all the Zygons are baddies. Or are they?

Know your enemy…

Rule one is always the same. Know your enemy. This essential guide to the Zygon menace should help! And yes, yes, yes we know we said rule one but we’ve made it rule three. We’re crazy.

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14482908049664","pid":"p01m3gk3","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p01m3gk3\/player"}}); }); Make sure your nearest and dearest aren’t aliens shape shifters.

Zygons can morph to resemble any human so you might want to check that your kith and kin are kosher. We suggest asking a question that only they would know the answer to, such as, ‘What’s my favourite episode of Doctor Who?’ If they reply, ‘The Trouble with Tribbles’, RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!

By the way if you think you could tell a Zygon from a human, can you identify which is the alien out of these two Queens?

DO NOT PUN!

We’re putting this one in upper case. That’s how seriously we feel about it. Do not – repeat do not – rehash the overly-familiar, ‘Let’s let Zygons be Zygons’ gag. It’s so old it makes the Sisterhood of Karn look like a recently formed offshoot of Mumsnet.

We’ve done it before…

Discover how the Zygons have been beaten in the past by finding out about previous invasions… Dip into Loch Ness with Terror of the Zygons or rewind the clock to The Day of the Doctor

…with the help of people like Osgood! Find out what she had to say on the subject in the video below…

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14482908049694","pid":"p02qyfc9","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p02qyfc9\/player"}}); }); Find out what it is they want…

We could just give them what they want. That would make them leave, wouldn’t it? It’s not like they want anything massive. Like the world or anything! Is it? Errr… Better check out this video…

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14482908049702","pid":"p0368xr5","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p0368xr5\/player"}}); }); Distract them through the medium of dance.

Try emulating the one which kicks in 25 seconds into this video. If it’s (Os)good enough for her, it’s (Os)good enough for us!

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14482908049710","pid":"p02qyf2y","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p02qyf2y\/player"}}); }); If all else fails…

Call the Doctor. Leap into one of these blue boxes (bottom right) and demand to be shown all of time and space. But remember to be back on your sofa for 8.15pm on Saturday with your TV set tuned into BBC One! It’s going to be awesome..!

TARDIS: The stuff you might have missed…

BBC - Doctor Who - Tue, 10/27/2015 - 5:46am

Every week we take 5 things that have been happening in the world of Doctor Who and hoist them onto our shoulders (metaphorically speaking) so you can see them over the crowds!

#rufuscam

The fantastic Rufus Hound shot several short behind the scenes videos including this brief interview with someone on work experience… Wait a minute! Isn’t that..? You can see more now!

We were at London Comic Con on Saturday to live tweet from the Doctor Who panel… One of the most popular things lead writer and exec producer Steven Moffat revealed was that Jack Harkness could make a return to Doctor Who – but only if the story was right! Appropriately enough, the crafty Captain was mentioned in that night’s episode! (Bonus extra! Sorry to hark on about Harkness, but here are ten things we love about Jack!)

Hounding Rufus

Talking of twitter, we did a live Q&A with Rufus Hound at the weekend! Visit our twitter feed and spin back to the tweets from Sunday at 7pm where Rufus talks about everything from snogging Maisie Williams, playing the Doctor and returning as Sam Swift to his best moment on set… And who do you think he named as his fave companion? Find out if you’re right!

Games to Admire…

We set you a challenge! Make some brilliant games featuring the murderous Mire… and you delivered big time! We created a collection of the best ones so you could give them a whirl… Which is your favourite?

Run! It’s the Zygons!

Finally, we looked ahead to The Zygon Invasion with these brand new trailers for episode 7! It looks like the Doctor’s next adventure is going to be a scary one… perfect for Halloween!
