The Vampires of Venice

Doctor Who returns this week as the Doctor, Amy and Rory travel back in time to Venice…

The Vampires of Venice in Doctor WhoMatt Smith once again stars as the Eleventh Doctor, with Karen Gillan as Amy, while Arthur Darvill joins as Amy’s fiance Rory. Rosanna Calvierri is played by Helen McCrory.

Dessicated corpses, terror in the canal and a visit to the sinister House of Calvierri – the Doctor takes Amy and Rory for a romantic mini-break, as the Tardis touches down once again.

But 16th-century Venice is not as it should be. The city has been sealed to protect it from the Plague, although Rosanna Calvierri may have other plans…

The Vampires of Venice is by Toby Whithouse (2006’s School Reunion and of course the creator of Being Human) and airs at 6.00pm on Saturday, 8th May and can be viewed on both BBC One and on the BBC HD channel, available through Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media.
