Fall in Love with The Girl Who Waited

At 7.15 pm in the UK and 9/8c in the USA, The Girl Who Waited will air on Saturday evening. You may have already read our preview of the episode in which we bigged up this Doctor-lite-ish story without really saying exactly how good it is.

For the record, you’ll have to wait until the episode has aired to be able to find out just how much we loved it, by which time you should also have fallen in love with it.

In the past I have possibly been prone to getting over-excited about a Doctor Who story, but I’m pretty certain that I’ve been able to be a lot more balanced this time around. Just in case I haven’t, however, I urge you to spend a few moments on these video clips from the episode, which should pique your interest considerably.

An average episode or 45 minutes of Doctor Who that are better than Blink? We’ll find out tomorrow…

    Finally an episode I love. And if Chen 7 is a reference to “The Dalek Masterplan”, is that “The Feast of Steven”? Nice one Mr Moffatt

    • A quick browse around the web this morning reveals that this is an episode with a mighty high reputation, perhaps as well-regarded as The Doctor’s Wife. No mean feat!

    Better than Blink? Now that you mention it… yeah!
