Silence in the Library Preview

Doctor Who returns at 7pm on Saturday 31 May with Silence in the Library, the first of a Steven Moffat (who he?) penned two-parter in season 30 of Doctor Who

Alex Kingston, Colin Salmon and Steve Pemberton join David Tennant and Catherine Tate as the TARDIS team lands in an abandoned library.

One hundred years ago, the Universe’s greatest library was sealed off with only a cryptic warning as explanation: "Count the shadows."

However, it now appears that the shadows are on the move again, and the Doctor and Donna must uncover the terrible truth behind the Nodes and the horrifying Data Ghost to uncover the Library’s secret.

The week off for The Eurovision Song Contest this week shouldn’t cause anyone any problems, and comes at what looks like a well-planned place in the series.

The second part of the Steven Moffat story is called Forest of the Dead, with subsequent episodes all written by Russell T Davies:

Episode 10: Midnight – by Russell T Davies

Episode 11: Turn Left- by Russell T Davies

Episode 12: TOP SECRET!

Episode 13: Journey’s End – by Russell T Davies

Don’t you hate it when they do that?

And don’t you hate it when Eurovision gets in the way? Well the BBC’s Official Doctor Who website is planning some treats, kicking off with a replay of the "rest of the series" trailer that is due to air this Saturday at 6.45pm.
