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.
