Coming this Saturday is a brand new Doctor Who adventure, taking place on a spaceship with lots of dinosaurs. So what better title to give it than Dinosaurs on a Spaceship?
With guest stars Rupert Graves (Riddell), Mark Williams (Rory’s dad, Brian) and David Bradley (Solomon) – not to mention Riann Steele (Egyptian Queen Nefertiti) – the adventure takes the time travellers off into orbit to prevent a rogue spaceship from colliding with Earth.
What’s on board the spaceship? Well, you’ve probably guessed that by now thanks to the trailer and our gallery. Who’s on the spaceship? Well, you’ve probably already seen the photos and caught mention of the name Solomon. David Bradley’s character is certainly not to be trusted, that’s all we’re going to tell you.
As for the rest of the team, they’re an interesting bunch, collected together by the Doctor into a gang to help him deal with the threat. With Pterodactyls, Triceratops and other scaled beasts providing threats throughout – not to mention a pair of robots that make C-3PO look like Russell Crowe – the stakes are extremely high when it becomes apparent just what it is that Solomon wants.
Now, the thing with these little previews is that we can’t tell you anything that will spoil the episode. However, we can give you five non-spoiler hints that certainly won’t affect your enjoyment of Dinosaurs on a Spaceship…
- You may recognise some familiar voices.
- You might have seen the weapons used against the dinosaurs somewhere before.
- There’s more than one queen in the Doctor’s gang.
- The spaceship is very important.
- Someone’s life is changed forever…
Of course, the important thing is that you make yourself available to view this episode at 7.35pm on Saturday evening on BBC One and BBC HD or at 9/8c on BBC America!
