Let’s Kill Hitler Prequel

The BBC have released the prequel to Let’s Kill Hitler and it’s quite understated and sad – nothing at all like a throwaway romp and a laugh before the series proper begins. There’s no hiding from it now… things aren’t going to get better before they get worse.

Taking place some time after the battle of Demon’s Run the TARDIS phone rings, clicking over to an answering machine that the Doctor was previously oblivious to. It’s Amy, desperately calling to find out if the Doctor has found Melody.

With a hell of an emotional pay off it’s great to see that the show is continuing its evolution – can you imagine such a clip introducing an episode from the RTD era? Although it has more of a deleted scene feel and lacks the sense of occasion of that same period. But if these are the “deleted scenes” what’s in the episode?!

With the BFI screening taking place today hopefully there will be an air date and a whole host of other Nazi-tastic information heading our way soon…

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.

    This prelude should be called “Let’s Make Robert Cry”. It’s so sad. Also, “Nazi-tastic”? You might want to rephrase that. There’s nothing “tastic” about Nazis.
