Watch Doctor Who Season 7 Episode 12 Nightmare in Silver - Online in HD Video
Doctor Who Season 7 Episode 12 April there has been a big rumour (reported from quite a few sources) circulating that he will be playing the role of the Forgotten Doctor, one that was lost in the Time War between the Eighth and Ninth incarnation of the famous time travelling character, and with this spoiler this rumour is ever more likely. His role would essentially be a way of filling the void left by Christopher Eccleston (Ninth) who was unable to return.
The anniversary special is already confirmed to include several smaller nods to the show's heritage, including bringing back Jemma Redgrave as UNIT's Kate Stewart and of course the revival of original series villains the Zygons. David Tennant (Tenth Doctor), Billie Piper (past companion Rose) have been cast in the special, while John Hurt and Joanna Paige also been cast in unspecified guest roles for the celebratory episode, which just finished filming in the UK. It was recently confirmed that Christopher Eccleston will not feature in the celebratory episode. Actor John Barrowman (Torchwood's Captain Jack Harkness) said he was in talks but later denied involved, going so far as to say how upset he was about not being in the special. The 3D special will be directed by Nick Hurran ('Asylum of the Daleks', 'The Girl Who Waited'), written by showrunner Steven Moffat, and it is rumoured the special will be 60-90 minutes long and will get a limited worldwide cinema release.
Doctor Who will be back with the twelfth of the 7th Series, 'Nightmare In Silver' written by Neil Gaiman and directed by Stephen Woolfenden on BBC One, Saturday May 11th in the UK and BBC America. The episode guest stars Warwick Davis, Jason Watkins, and Tamzin Outhwaite. An air date for the Anniversary Special is still unknown but expected for Novem
It’s been a long wait, but now the second Neil Gaiman-written Doctor Who story will soon be upon us. “Nightmare In Silver” is on BBC AMERICA this Saturday at 8/7c, but before we can dig out the polish and rags, ready to buff up the silvery headphones, can we take a moment to salute the full gooey menace of “The Crimson Horror?”
Here’s the behind-the-scenes report:
Here’s our recap, and here’s our tribute to British acting families – like Dame Diana Rigg and Rachael Stirling – that are not called Redgrave.
Dame Diana was interviewed in the Independent about working with her daughter for the first time, and admitted “Rachie and I had great difficulty keeping a straight face in some scenes. Hopefully we’re believable.”
Here’s the trailer for “Nightmare In Silver.”
And here is another one:
And here is Neil Gaiman‘s summary of the story, so you can get good and ready. Gaiman will also be chatting about “Nightmare in Silver” on Wednesday night/Thursday morning’s episode of Last Call with Carson Daly.
And you might like to know that after this week’s episode, there will be a prequel released called “He Said, She Said.” It sets up the story for the series finale — “The Name of the Doctor” – and will show Clara and the Doctor expressing how little they truly know of each other, to camera.
Time to have a look at what else has been going on in space and time this week:
• Congratulations to Mr. David Tennant on his very first EMMY nomination! And it’s for a role in another space-bound sci-fi franchise, but for this one, he didn’t have to even show his face. (Pity.)
• Would Lara Pulver — Irene Adler from Sherlock — be at all interested if Steven Moffat rang her and offered her the part of the Doctor? Apparently so.
• Russell Tovey, on the other hand, not so much, as he told the Independent: “It would have terrified me.”
Best known as George the werewolf from the original British Being Human, Tovey has appeared on Doctor Who twice before, as Alonso. First, in “Voyage of the Damned,” he sparked one of the great moments of the Tenth Doctor’s tenure.
And then he featured prominently in one of Captain Jack’s best pick-up scenes, in “The End of Time”:
