Doctor Who – not too long to wait

While I was in Wales, it was announced that the new series of Doctor Who, with new Doctor Peter Capaldi, will begin on Saturday, August 23 – the start of the Bank Holiday weekend. It’s reported that the opening episode will be a longer than normal one, and will be called Deep Breath. Cybermen have been seen on the streets of Cardiff (it’s suggested that they’ll be in the finale), and the BBC have been drip-feeding teasers. The latest is just out, and speculation is rife (as is no doubt intended) – is that a Dalek, or could it be the return of Davros? The latter is my interpretation, for what it’s worth. But given Mr Steven Moffat’s tendency for misdirection, it might just as well turn out to be Kroll….
