Is this the one we’ve been waiting for? Will this season of so-far unfulfilled promise be generally forgotten in wake of this?
Judging by the trailer at the end of Fear Her, the answer should be a definite “yes”. Ghosts, Torchwood, Cybermen – this story appears to have it all.
…It’s back to 21st century Earth and the Powell estate, as Rose and the Doctor re-enter a world that, for two months now, has been co-existing with ghosts. Or that’s what Jackie assumes them to be – shadowy, black images floating around, and becoming as commonplace as Big Issue sellers.
And there’s also a few snippets of information in the
target=”_blank”>Press Releaseissued upon announcement of Billie Piper’s departure from the series:
Now, in what is set to be the TARDIS’s most terrifying adventure, The Doctor and Rose will face their biggest challenge to date.
Back on Earth the human race rejoices as the ghosts of loved ones return home.
But as the Doctor (David Tennant), Rose and her mother Jackie (Camille Coduri) investigate Torchwood Tower, a trap is being sprung – an almighty invasion is being put into motion which is set to destroy the whole of modern-day Earth.
No doubt those of you who recorded Doctor Who at the weekend have poured over the trailer countless times for clues – I know I have – and will be well impressed with what is on offer next week. Big sets, location battles, at least one alien foe (you know what I’m talking about!) and of course the emotional hook of knowing that this is Rose’s last story – back to SFX:
By now you probably know Billie’s leaving – it’s been splashed all over the tabloids – but if you didn’t know, the pre-title sequence of this episode – one of the most elegiac ever – would have had you guessing.
Finally, Anthony Dry’s fantasy totty Tracy-Ann Oberman is the focus of an article in today’s Sun newspaper. You will click this link at your own peril however – there are images that should be left untainted until Saturday…
And the Army of Ghosts TARDISODE finally underlines that Torchwood is not a nice bunch of people… and look out for constant trailing this week at all times of the day…
