The Rings of Akhaten Preview and Gallery

Doctor Who Series 7b rumbles on, and episode 8/2 of the new run is fast approaching next Saturday evening! The Rings of Akhaten has an interesting look, as you’ll seen in the gallery below, but first, what’s it all about?

Clara wants to see something awesome, so the Doctor whisks her off to the inhabited rings of the planet Akhaten, where the Festival of Offerings is in full swing.

Clara meets the young Queen of Years as the pilgrims and natives ready for the ceremony. But something is stirring in the pyramid, and a sacrifice will be demanded.

Emilia Jones plays Merry, while Michael Dixon plays Dave in the episode by Neil Cross (Luther) and directed by Farren Blackburn.

Thanks to the BBC, we can also share the following gallery! (Head to our Facebook page for a hi-res gallery)

You can catch The Rings of Akhaten on 6 April at 6.15pm on BBC One and BBC HD and 8 ET on BBC America. You can find out more about the episode by checking out the trailers.

  1. I have low expectations for this episode. The trailer was dull, the reviews so far are not so good. I hope I am 100% wrong!
