BBC America has dropped the latest batch of Doctor Who goodies and unveiled a tense new clip, a trailer and a glorious gallery of pics!
Written by showrunner Steven Moffat’s Sherlock partner-in-crime, Mark Gatiss, the next episode, aptly titled “Empress of Mars,” takes us back to the Red Planet (oh, how I loved “The Waters of Mars”), where the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and his faithful companions Bill (Pearl Mackie) and Nardole (Matt Lucas) come across a female Ice Warrior.
Not only are the old-timey classic Doctor Who monsters finally back, but the episode will also feature Victorian soldiers on Mars. I repeat: We have Victorian soldiers on Mars! How cool is that?
‘God save the Queen’ has been scrawled on the surface of Mars. What are Victorians doing on the home of the Ice Warriors? And what will they find beneath the Martian soil?
Check out the new Doctor Who stuff, and let us know if you’re looking forward to “Empress of Mars.” Doctor Who airs Saturday on the BBC, BBC America and Space.
