Eight block­buster episodes of ‘Dr Who’

Weekend Witness - - Racing -

GREAT news for fans of the Bri­tish sci­ence fic­tion se­ries, Doc­tor Who, is that the sec­ond part of sea­son seven is set to air on BBC En­ter­tain­ment (DStv chan­nel 120) at 7 pm to­mor­row night.

There will be eight big, block­buster movie episodes — each one a brand new epic ad­ven­ture fea­tur­ing new mon­sters and some fa­mil­iar foes as you’ve never seen them be­fore.

And the best bit — each spec­tac­u­lar episode will be broad­cast just 24 hours af­ter its world pre­miere in the United King­dom. All this, and there’s a new com­pan­ion, Clara Oswin Oswald, in tow.

The first new episode is writ­ten by the show’s lead writer and ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer, Steven Mof­fat, and is di­rected by Colm McCarthy whose pre­vi­ous cred­its in­clude Hus­tle and Spooks. Later ad­ven­tures in the run in­clude episodes writ­ten by Mark Gatiss ( Vic­tory of the Daleks, Night Ter­rors) and ac­claimed au­thor Neil Gaiman.

Dr Who stars Matt Smith as The Doc­tor and Jenna-Louise Cole­man as Clara. — Arts Ed­i­tor.
