FINALLY! A NEW NEIL GAIMAN DOCTOR WHO EPISODE! Every Whovian has favorite episodes, and mine had been “Blink” before Neil Gaiman‘s exquisite “The Doctor’s Wife” came along in Season 6. Neil Gaiman is the author of American Gods, Coraline, The Graveyard Book, the Sandman comic series, and so much more (and by the way brings an unsurpassable magic to his audiobook narration), and his fans are as rabid as Whovians.
What we have tonight is a perfect storm of fandom, particularly considering that tonight is the penultimate episode of the season.
But first, we have a few reminders from last week’s episode, “The Crimson Horror”, just so we’re all on the same page for tonight. Then we have two posters for the new episode, the synopsis, and a TV spot. Now all we need is that TARDIS to get us to tonight faster.
Nightmare in Silver – Episode 12, premieres Saturday, May 11, 8:00pm ET/PT.
Hedgewick’s World of Wonders was once the greatest theme park in the galaxy, but it’s now the dilapidated home to a shabby showman, a chess playing dwarf and a dysfunctional army platoon. When the Doctor, Clara, Artie and Angie arrive, the last thing they expect is the re-emergence of one of the Doctor’s oldest foes. The Cybermen are back!
Episode credits: Written by Neil Gaiman (Coraline) and directed by Stephen Woolfenden.
Doctor Who, starring Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman, airs Saturdays at 8/7c on BBC America.
