Brand new episodes of Doctor Who. It’s a sentence that we should not take for granted. The show’s been back for eight years now but every time the production team announce new titles and new adventures we should still be getting very excited.
So, to give you some Doctor Who themed excitement and get you spreading the new to all of your friends, here are some episode titles for the new series from the first half of the 2012 run.
A Town Called Mercy. That’s the western episode that we’ve seen a lot of in the newest trailer. It’s a sexy title, it’s fun and it evokes western themes that we associate with films from that genre. But that’s not enough.
So, brace yourselves, another episode will be called Dinosaurs on a Spaceship. You read it right, that’s the name and it’s brilliant. Running from Steven Moffat’s game plan of “slutty titles”, this is one of the smuttiest, it’s sexy and it’s titillating -as if Asylum of the Daleks wasn’t bad enough! And it’s also a good point for Doctor Who to show that it can do dinosaurs brilliantly. Primeval, get ready to eat your heart out.
Dinosaurs On a Spaceship (love it!) will feature Mark Williams (The Fast Show and the Harry Potter films) as Rory’s dad and Sherlock star Rupert Graves. It’s going to be a proper time hopping adventure that culminates in the Doctor and his friends running from dinosaurs, which is just Saturday night perfection.
Steven Moffat commented:
“Dinosaurs on a Spaceship – what more do you need?…We took one look at Chris Chibnall’s brilliant script and said to ourselves ‘We’re going to need a bigger corridor’.”
This new series just keeps getting better and better!
