DOCTOR WHO’s 2-Part Finale To Feature Extended Running Times!

sentbentThe final two episodes of this season of DOCTOR WHO — “Heaven Sent” and “Hell Bent” — will run longer than the standard 45-minute episodes in England, with “Hell Bent” adding a whole 20 minutes! “Heaven Sent” will boast about 10 minutes more than usual.

BBC America has not released any information about the run times of the final two episodes here in America, where stories are typically trimmed to make room for commercials.

“Heaven Sent” will premiere on Nov. 28, and “Hell Bent” wraps up series 9 on Dec. 5.

“Hell Bent” will be the longest episode of DOCTOR WHO since Peter Capaldi’s debut story, “Deep Breath,” which ran 76 minutes.

Face the New Photos From ‘Face the Raven’

This week’s episode of DOCTOR WHO, “Face the Raven,” is shaping up to be a landmark, with the certain potential end of Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) for good!

Oh, and, as you no doubt know by now — from her photos above and her voice in the trailer, Maisie Williams is back as Ashildr. Something inside me wants her to be really, really evil. In fact, I want her to be responsible for Clara’s demise. That would be something unique: a companion snuffing a companion!

“Face the Raven” will air Saturday at 9 p.m. on BBC America.
