Hitler Prequel Announced

Fed up of waiting for the Doctor to kill Hitler? Well the BBC have heard your fascist ending cries and are releasing another prequel episode to whet your appetite for (surely?) Saturday 27th August.

The prequel is designed to bridge the gap between A Good Man Goes to War and Let’s Kill Hitler and is written by Steven Moffat and featuring Matt Smith and Karen Gillan – which the BBC have promised will contain:

“Humour, drama and a heart-breaking moment.”

Sounds humorously dramatic and tear-jerkingly wonderful!

To view the prequel head over to the BBC site on Monday.

About the Author


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

    For some reason the BBC have also gone out of their way to reassure people that Rory appears as well. Are they worried that people will assume that he has died somewhere between AGMGTW and LKH?

    Someone at the BBC needs to explain how this can be a prequel if it’s being released _before_ the episode, precursor maybe, prologue perhaps, but a prequel would have to be released _after_ the 27th to be a prequel … unless this is some weird timey-wimey thing going on.
