Five Things We Can Expect to See in Doctor Who Series 7b
Answers to who Clara Oswald Really is. Clara Oswald, AKA Oswin AKA Souffle girl AKA the woman twice dead. Since Jenna-Louise Coleman’s first appearance speculations have been rife. Is she the Doctor’s daughter? That seems unlikely to me. Is she a Timelord herself? Quite possibly. We know the date of birth on her headstone, 23rd November, is the anniversary of the first ever Doctor Who episode. Red herring or clue? Who knows. One thing is for certain, series 7b will be about discovering who or what Clara is.
A Cyberman episode written by Neil Gaiman. It’s going to be the penultimate episode, and it is titled Nightmare in Silver. We also know that the episode will guest star Warwick Davis and Tamsin Outhwait. Given that Neil Gaiman wrote what is arguably one of the best episode of the new Doctor Who series, I think this new Cybermen yarn will not disappoint.
The Return of the Ice Warriors. After many years, the ice warriors are returning to Doctor Who with an updated look. The episode, which will be the third episode of 7b, is called Cold War and will be set on a Russian submarine during, well, the cold war. I have to admit, I’m very excited to watch this one!
Diana Rigg guest stars. Former Mrs Peel Diana Rigg and her daughter Rachael Stirling will appear in The Crimson Horror which will be set in Victorian times. The episode will also mark the return of Vastra, Jenny and Strax.
More scenes depicting the inside of the TARDIS. Steven Moffat has not been afraid to show the interior of the TARDIS, which I love seeing, and he promises more interior shots with Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS.
Personally, I cannot wait for the upcoming episodes of Doctor Who which start this Saturday, 30th March. If you’re as impatient as I am, check out the trailer for the first episode, The Bells of Saint John as well as the prequel to the episode.
