It really is bigger on the inside!
Matt Smith (the Doctor) tells us what to expect in tonight’s episode — and why he thinks it’s a winner. (As if the clips we’ve seen haven’t been enough to stoke the fires.)
I really hope this turns out to be a crackerjack episode, because this story is going to be remembered by fans and become series cannon — until another story picks up the premise of the looking at the TARDIS’ interior.
One thing does concern me: In all the publicity I’ve seen for this episode, no one has mentioned the Sontaran patrol that took off into the depths of the TARDIS in the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) classic “The Invasion of Time” and was never seen again. Are those clones still inside?
Perhaps we’ll find out tonight at 8 o’clock on BBC America…
In this scene, the Doctor has set the TARDIS’ self-destruct system to activate in one hour — and we know he will let it blow, unless Clara can be found. But that won’t stop the Doctor from finding her — and pressing others into service.
By the way, those men are a salvage crew that mistakenly assumed the TARDIS was a junker and set about trying to strip it for salvage. But the Doctor (Matt Smith) would never let happen to his beloved machine.
The clock is ticking, and now everyone’s life is on the line!
The BBC has released 32 new photos to tease this week’s new episode of DOCTOR WHO, “Journey to the Center of the TARDIS.” A lot of them are lovely pics, so I decided to take a selection of my favorites and make a little preview gallery of my own. Although we have no sense of context, I’m told that these photos are spoilery.
Here is what the story is about:
A spaceship salvage team drags the TARDIS on board, sending its systems into meltdown. As the Doctor marshals the motley salvage crew outside, he realizes Clara is still trapped within his malfunctioning ship, pursued by a dangerous group of ossified monsters. He has just 30 minutes to find Clara and save his TARDIS before it self-destructs.
Watch DOCTOR WHO this Saturday at 8 p.m. on BBC America.
To help get us all fired up for Saturday night’s big episode, which finally centers on the TARDIS herself, here are some video clips.
First, the “next time” trailer from our own BBC America:
Here is the BBC One clip, which is always a bit different from what we see here in the colonies:
