Who dis­cov­ers what puts the evil into evo­lu­tion when he takes on pre­his­toric beasts in his new­est ad­ven­ture. De­tails of the next se­ries of the timelord’s ad­ven­tures, an­nounced this week, re­veal Matt Smith’s hero will star in episodes called Di­nosaurs on a Space­ship and a western-themed story called A Town Called Mercy. They will fol­low the first episode of the new se­ries, which re­unites him with his old­est en­e­mies in Asy­lum of the Daleks. Show supremo Steven Mof­fat says: ‘‘ Di­nosaurs on a Space­ship – what more do you need? The Doc­tor will come face to face with some of the most mon­strous crea­tures evo­lu­tion has ever pro­duced . . . We took one look at Chris Chib­nall’s bril­liant script and said to our­selves, ‘we’re go­ing to need a big­ger cor­ri­dor’. And Toby Whit­house’s A Town Called Mercy takes us into a genre Doc­tor Who hasn’t at­tempted since the ’60s – it’s a full-blooded western. We knew from the start we need some se­ri­ous lo­ca­tion shoot­ing for this one, and given the most iconic Amer­i­can set­ting imag­in­able, there was only one place to go – Spain.’’ Di­nosaurs on a Space­ship stars Fast Show fun­ny­man Mark Wil­liams as the fa­ther of Arthur Darvill’s Rory and Sher­lock star Ru­pert Graves. The new se­ries of Doc­tor Who re­turns later this year fol­lowed by a Christ­mas spe­cial and eight episodes next year.
