It has been 40 years since their first appearance, 26 since their last – but this Saturday night, Doctor Who features the long-awaited return of the Silurians!
Steven Moffat’s reimagined series of Doctor Who continues with another thrilling, frightening episode. From the pen of Chris Chibnall (42), The Hungry Earth features several elements of classic Doctor Who – a mining village, an ambitious drilling project, and a powerful, Earth-bound foe…
It’s 2015 and the most ambitious drilling project in history has reached deeper beneath the Earth’s crust than man has ever gone before â€“ but now the ground itself is fighting back.
In the latest episode of the time-travelling drama the Doctor, Amy and Rory arrive in a tiny mining village and find themselves plunged into a battle against a deadly danger from a bygone age.
With Matt Smith as the Doctor, Karen Gillan as Amy Pond and Arthur Darvill as Rory, The Hungry Earth is the first part of a two-part story that also features Meera Syal, Neve McIntosh and Steven Moore.
The Hungry Earth airs at 6.15pm on Saturday, 22nd May on BBC One and BBC HD, available through Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media
