The 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.
