    Dieses mal gibt es wieder ein Review fur alle Audiophilen unter unseren Horeren. Denn wir besprechen das Big Finish Horspiel "Kingdom of Silver" / "Keepsake". Das eigentliche Hightlight dieses Castes ist aber mit Sicherheit das uns von Rebbeka zugesandte MP3, in dem sie fur alle David Tennant in die Bresche springt. Des weiteren haben wir noch ein wenig mehr Post abzuarbeiten und naturlich viel Spass...

During the chat,\nGareth David-Lloyd (Ianto Jones from Torchwood) invited everyone (well,\nPhil) out to drinks somewhere else, and Phil did his damnedest to avoid\ngiving away plot details for the next gap year special.

    Warriors\' Gate is a serial in the British science fiction television series Doctor Who,\nwhich was first broadcast in four weekly parts from January 3 to\nJanuary 24, 1981. The serial is the last of three loosely connected\nserials known as the E-Space trilogy and the last to feature Romana and K-9 as companions.\n\n\n\n\n\nContents\n [hide]\n1 Plot\n1.1 Synopsis1.2 Continuity\n1.2.1 Departures\n\n\n\n2 Production3 Commercial releases\n3.1 In print\n\n4 References5 External links\n5.1 Reviews5.2 Target novelisation\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n//<![CDATA[\n if (window.showTocToggle) { var tocShowText = "show"; var tocHideText = "hide"; showTocToggle(); } \n//]]>\n\n\n\n[edit] Plot\n\n\n[edit] Synopsis\nAt a null point in space and time on the interface between our\nuniverse (n-space) and E-space (exo-space), a slaver cargo vessel\nbecomes trapped. It manoeuvres the timelines using members of the\nleonine Tharil race as navigators - and they too are the cargo of the\ngrim vessel, held in cryogenic storage in its hold. A Tharil named\nBiroc flees the craft on the time winds, leaving it moored and trapped,\nand ventures to the TARDIS,\nwhich has also become trapped in a time rift in this strange dimension.\nThe creature manifests itself in the TARDIS console room and imparts to\nthe occupants the warning that he is a shadow of his own past -- and of\ntheir future; and that the others that are following him should not be\ntrusted. The Tharil then disappears, with the Doctor in pursuit. Romana, and Adric are left worried about K-9, whose memory wafers have been shredded by the time winds.\n\nThe commander of the slave ship,\nRorvik, is increasingly angry about their entrapment in the void and\nthe general apathy of his crew toward their condition. When the ship\npicks up another object in the void, he and two of his crew members use\na portable mass detector to track down the TARDIS. Romana steps outside\nto confront them and is persuaded to return to their ship with them to\nexamine the damaged warp drive of their ship. Rorvik has, however,\nworked out she may be a time sensitive like the Tharils and is\ninterested in her for potential profit. Adric and K9 both venture\nseparately into the void in her pursuit.\n\nThe Doctor has meanwhile reached a vast stone archway in the void,\ncontaining an abandoned banqueting hall, decaying skeletons and\npartially functioning robot knights known as Gundans. They were built\nby slaves as part of a revolt against a previous tyranny that ended in\na massacre at the feast in the same hall. The slavers used the time\nwinds to descend on worlds and enslave the populations. K9 arrives at\nthe Gateway too and begins to help the Doctor repair the Gundan, which\nhas worn itself out. However, before they can obtain any more\ninformation Rorvik arrives with some of his crew and seizes control at\nthe point of a gun. Romana has been taken back to the slaver ship for\nuse as a navigator, while Rorvik has used the portable mass detector to\nisolate the Gateway. He becomes angry when a Gundan comes to life and\nwalks out of the room straight through a solid mirror, and challenges\nthe Doctor to explain the situation. His response is to walk through\nthe mirror: a step the human slavers behind him cannot take.\n\nBack on the slave ship, a Tharil called Lazlo, who had been left for\ndead by the slavers when his revivification process seemingly failed,\nfrees Romana from certain death in the navigator\'s chair. She hides in\nthe hull of the ship and there finds Adric, and together they work out\nthe slave ship is made of the incredibly dense dwarf star\nalloy, the remnants of a collapsed star. This heavy metal is the only\nthing that can hold the Tharils trapped in a single timeline. When they\nmeet K9, the badly damaged robot informs them of dimensional\ninstability and the imminent collapse of the void, which is contracting\nupon itself. The sheer weight of the slave ship is damaging the\ndelicate balance holding the dimension together. Romana is shortly\nafterward separated from Adric and K9 and reunited with Lazlo, who\ntakes her through the mirrors too.\n\nBeyond the mirror the Doctor has found Biroc, who explains he was\nable to pass through because his hand was caught in the time winds.\nThey enter an elegant mansion, seemingly frozen in time, where the\nTharil explains that his people were the notorious slavers of the\nGateway whose rule was overthrown by the use of the Gundans. As the\nsorry tale of the decay of their society is retold, the Doctor is\nreunited with Romana but in a bizarre twist they are returned to the\nreality of the decaying Gateway in the void once the Tharils\' story has\nbeen told - and once more find themselves prisoners of Rorvik.\n\nBased on the reports of the shrinking of the Gateway, the Doctor\ndeduces that the slave ship is indeed the cause of the problems and -\nmore worryingly - there is not much time before the Gateway retracts\ninto nothing. Adric has meanwhile hidden himself inside the MZ, a vast\nportable cannon which the slavers are going to use on the Gateway and\nthe mirrors in an effort to escape the void. When the weapon reaches\nthe Gateway he uses it to free the Doctor and Romana, and the time\ntravellers flee into the void. When the slavers set out in pursuit they\nfind their ship has moved much closer to the gateway - proof positive\nthat the dimension is shrinking and therefore doomed. In frustration\nRorvik fires the MZ at the mirrors, but succeeds only in destroying the\nweapon. The crazed and infuriated slaver now decides to use his ship\'s\nengines to back-blast through the mirrors and escape the void. It is a\nfoolish move: the backblast from the mirrors engulfs and destroys the\nship and all its crew.\n\nThe Tharil slaves have, however, been freed by Lazlo and Romana, who\nhas formed an empathy with the race. She elects to voyage through the\nGateway with them and help the Tharils. The Doctor gives her K9, who\nwill be restored beyond the Gateway, though he can never return. After\nthey depart, the Doctor uses the knowledge he has gained from the\nTharils to successfully pilot the TARDIS through the Gateway and back\ninto N-Space.\n\n\n\n[edit] Continuity\nThis serial comprises the third and final leg of an extended\nadventure generally known as the "The E-Space Trilogy"; the trilogy\nbegan in Full Circle, and continued in State of Decay.\n\nThe multi-coloured scarf can be seen on the hatstand.\n\n\n\n[edit] Departures\nThis story was the last story to feature Lalla Ward as Romana. Two months after her departure, Ward went on to marry her co-star Tom Baker\nin 1981, but the marriage lasted less than two years. Ward is one of\ntwo former companions to ever be married to an actor who played the\nDoctor. The other was Jean Marsh, who played the First Doctor\'s companion, Sara Kingdom, was married to Jon Pertwee, although the marriage occurred prior to Pertwee landing the role of the Third Doctor.\n\nWard was seen again as Romana on television in The Five Doctors (1983) (via footage of her and Tom Baker from the unaired story of Shada (1980)) and reprised her role in the Children in Need charity special Dimensions in Time (1993). She continues to participate in the world of Doctor Who by attending conventions, recording audio commentary on DVD releases, performing in several Big Finish audio dramas and by appearing in the BBC\'s online drama webcasts.\n\nThis story was also the last television story of the classic series to feature the character of K-9 Mk. II, played by John Leeson.\nLeeson, who left the series at the end of Season 16, returned for\nSeason 18 on the understanding that K-9 would be written out toward the\nend of the season.[citation needed]\n\nThe character of K-9 (Mk. III and Mk. IV), voiced again by John Leeson would return in the 1981 spin-off episode, K9 & Company, the 1983 anniversary special, The Five Doctors and the 2006 episode "School Reunion". He would later pop up twice in the first series of spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures. He also appears in the Series Four Finale, Journey\'s End.\n\nRomana and K-9\'s journey in E-space is continued in two BBV audio plays.\n\n\n\n[edit] Production\n\nSerial details by episode:\n\nEpisode\nBroadcast date\nRun time\nViewership\n(in millions)\n\n\n"Part One"\n3 January 1981\n22:54\n7.1\n\n\n"Part Two"\n10 January 1981\n23:47\n6.7\n\n\n"Part Three"\n17 January 1981\n22:15\n8.3\n\n\n"Part Four"\n24 January 1981\n24:53\n7.8\n\n\n[1][2][3]\n\n\n\n\nWorking titles for this story included Dream Time.\n\n\n\nDoctor Who book\n\n\n\n\n\nDoctor Who and Warriors\' Gate\n\n\nSeries\nTarget novelisations\n\n\nRelease\xc2\xa0number\n71\n\n\nWriter\nStephen Gallagher\n\n\nPublisher\nTarget Books\n\n\nCover\xc2\xa0artist\nAndrew Skilleter\n\n\nISBN\n0 426 20146 9\n\n\nRelease\xc2\xa0date\n15 April 1982\n\n\nPreceded by\nDoctor Who and the State of Decay\n\n\nFollowed by\nDoctor Who and the Keeper of Traken\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Commercial releases\nThis story was released on VHS in October 1997.A DVD commentary has been recorded with actors Lalla Ward and John Leeson Script Editor Christopher H.

    \xc2\xa0Continuing the Doctor\'s adventures in E-Space, the Doctor, Romana,\nK-9, and their newest companion/stowaway, Adric, arrive on a planet\nexperiencing what appears to be a feudal period. The population scratches out a living as subsistence farmers\nunder the thrall of three local lords, Zargo, Camilla, and Aukon, who\ndwell in a shadowy tower. Adding further fear to their lives, they\nexperience a yearly ritual called "the Selection," in which a sample of\nyoung villagers are taken to the tower, never to be seen again. This\nselection process is enforced by a thuggish band of guards led by\nHabris.\n\nThe Doctor and Romana venture out into the village (not knowing that\nAdric is following them), and it doesn\'t take long for the Doctor to\nrealize that something is very wrong when he discovers evidence of\ntechnology considerably more advanced than what this medieval\nsociety seems capable of producing. With such technology, the Doctor\nand Romana wonder what happened in the course of the planet\'s\ndevelopment to cause it to evolve "backward" from a presumably advanced\nculture to its current rustic condition -- to be in a "state of decay."\nThe arrival and then departure of the Doctor and Romana from the\nvillage hall is reported by the headman, Ivo, via an electronic\ncommunications device to an unseen figure called Kalmar. As the two\nhead out of the village they are seized by cloaked figures who convey\nthem to a secret base filled with illegal computers and other\ntechnology. Kalmar is a scientist - a heretical role in their society -\nand is very grateful for the Doctor\'s help in repairing a computer\nwhich proceeds to reveal the names of the original chief officers of\nthe spaceship Hydrax. The faces of three senior officers are revealed\nas those of the Lords of the Tower.\n\nThe Lords too have learnt of Romana and the Doctor, and Aukon sends\na flock of his winged servants, bats, (aka "The Wasting") to menace\nthem as they travel a clearing near the village.\n\nThe Doctor and Romana are now seized by Habris and his guards and\ntaken to an audience in the Tower. Zargo and Camilla entertain them for\na while, then are called away to deal with a situation called the\nArising. The Doctor and Romana start to snoop around and discover that\nin fact, the great Tower in which the Lords dwell is itself a spaceship\noriginally from Earth, which also somehow was pulled into E-Space long ago.\n\nAdric has meanwhile wandered into the village and finds himself\nlooked after by Ivo and his wife Marta, both of whom are grieving for\ntheir late son who was chosen for the Selection.\n\nIn the Hydrax the Doctor and Romana discover rows of corpses drained\nof blood, while the craft\'s fuel stores are full of blood. Talk turns\nto vampires. They head downwards and find an amphitheatre. It is there that the Lord Aukon greets them, welcoming them to his domain.\n\nAukon invites the Doctor and Romana to become the first of the new\nservants of the Chosen Ones then tells them that he has Adric much to\ntheir surprise. When they refuse they are imprisoned. The Doctor\ndeduces by applying principles of consonant shifting\nthat the current lords\' names are a corruption of the original crew\nnames (e.g. "Sharky" becomes "Zargo"). Thus the Doctor realizes that\nthe three lords might not be descendants of the original crew, but\nmembers of the original crew themselves. He is reminded of ancient Time Lord\nstories of the Great Vampires, a giant race of rapacious, destructive,\nand powerful creatures that were ancient enemies of the Time Lords\nthemselves. He deduces that the Great Vampire escaped destruction at\nthe hands of the Time Lords by somehow retreating into E-Space, and it\nmanaged eventually to gather enough power to pull the old Earth ship\ninto this universe and corrupt the crew. Over time, it licked its\nwounds and gathered power so that it could once again feast on worlds.\n\nMeanwhile, Adric\'s attempts to mingle with the natives have led to him getting caught up in the Selection. He is put under a hypnotic trance\nby Aukon and accompanies him to the tower. Normally, the Chosen Ones\nare chosen for Guards or killed if they defy the Three Who Rule, but\nAukon has other plans for Adric when he finds, to his surprise,\nsomething different about the third stranger. Aukon plots to change\nAdric into the new Chosen.\n\nAnother rebel named Tarak, makes a solo attack on the Tower in the\nhope of freeing the Doctor and Romana. The Doctor returns to the\nTARDIS, while Romana stays with Tarak to search for Adric, whom she\nknows now is in the Tower\'s Inner Sanctum. As they try to snap Adric\nout of his trance, they unknowingly awaken Zargo and Camilla. Tarak is\nliterally throttled by Zargo and dies when his neck snaps on the edge\nof the "bed". Adric throws a knife at Zargo\'s heart and Camilla\nadvances on Adric. Romana backs away but Zargo grabs her shoulder. With\na toothy evil grin, he chuckles as he pulls the knife out of his heart\nand is about to give a fatal blow to Romana.\n\nRomana closes her eyes as Zargo draws his arm back for a fatal blow\nbut Aukon orders him to stop. "The boy," he says "is the first of the\nChosen Ones, soon to be one of us. He is not for you!" Camilla then\nasks to have Romana. Aukon grabs Romana\'s chin and says gloatingly,\n"The girl is a Timelord, one of the enemies of the Great One. She is to\nbe held for sacrifice at the time of Arising!" Romana and Adric argue\nabout their fate. Adric says if it\'s a choice between death and joining\nthe dine that means there\'s no sense in two of them getting the chop.\nAdric asks Aukon why he is being kept prisoner when Romana is the\nsacrifice and he is a Chosen One. "I\'m sorry Timelady. One of my\nfamilies died for your lot already. I reckon one\'s enough!" Romana asks\nAdric if he knows what happens to vampires when they die. Adric smugly\nreplies "But they don\'t die, do they Aukon!". They are taken to the\nbottom of the Tower (as shown in the picture above), where Romana will\nbe sacrificed at the time of Arising and Adric will indeed become a\nChosen One.\n\nIn the TARDIS the Doctor and K-9 review the old stories about\nvampires. The lore that the Doctor and K-9 uncovers determines that the\nGreat Vampires could only be defeated by metal bowships driven through\ntheir chests (rather like the wooden stakes that work on lesser\nvampires). He takes the craft to Kalmar\'s base and there uses scanning\nequipment to scan the Tower. Under the lake of blood he finds a\nrestless, demonic presence, whom he determines to be the last Great\nVampire. He warns it is about to be revived. Kalmar, Ivo and many other\nvillagers agree to help him fight back. This rebel army and K9 make an\nassault on the Tower itself, killing collaborator guards. Ivo finds\nHabris and tells him "This is for my son!" and then kills him. The\nDoctor heads off to the peak of the Tower and, in a burst of\ncharacteristic ingenuity, the Doctor manages to rig one of the old\nscoutships still attached to the spaceship/tower to launch and achieve\na trajectory that caused it to point back toward the ground and drive\nitself into the heart of the subterranean Great Vampire, thus\nduplicating the effect of the "metal bowships" of Time Lord history.\n\nWith the Great Vampire dispatched, the three vampire Lords crumble\nto dust without the power of their master to sustain them. The Doctor\nfinds Romana and Adric. Together with K9 they leave the planet to its\nown fate, hoping that, now freed from the corruptive effect of the\nvampires, it will change direction and develop once again toward its\nformer advanced state and even perhaps surpass it. He leaves the planet\nin Kalmar\'s hands, while hoping the next journeys in the TARDIS will\ntake Adric home and lead the craft back out of E-Space.\n\n\n\n Continuity\nThis serial comprises the second leg of an extended adventure\ngenerally known as the "The E-Space Trilogy"; the trilogy began in the\nprevious serial, Full Circle, and concludes in Warriors\' Gate.\n\nThe Doctor mentions his childhood on Gallifrey and "an old hermit\nwho lived up a mountain behind our house [and] used to tell me ghost\nstories" - tales of the Time Lord\'s war with the Vampires. This is the\nfirst mention of the Doctor\'s mentor from his youth since his last regeneration. This figure, K\'Anpo (or Cho-Je) is first mentioned in The Time Monster and seen in Planet of the Spiders.\n\nThe Great Vampires are mentioned by the Tenth Doctor in "The Infinite Quest".\n\n\n\n Tie-in media\nThe Virgin New Adventures spin-off novel Blood Harvest by Terrance Dicks and the Missing Adventure Goth Opera by Paul Cornell are sequels to this serial. Other Doctor Who novels featuring vampires include Vampire Science and Warmonger.\n\nMany of the novels feature references to the war between the Time\nLords and the Vampires. Another anti-Vampire weapon, the N-Forms, were\nintroduced by Russell T Davies in his New Adventures novel Damaged Goods. Bowships are mentioned in the Doctor Who Annual 2006 as one of the weapons used in the Time War against the Daleks, along with N-Forms and Black Hole Carriers.\n\nThe Fourth Doctor segment of The Eight Doctors,\nin which the Fourth Doctor is captured by the last few surviving\nvampires and is rescued by Romana and the Eighth Doctor, takes place\nbetween the destruction of the Great Vampire and the end of this story.\n\nThe Big Finish Productions audio dramas Project: Twilight, Project Lazarus, and Zagreus refer to the vampires and to their history with the Time Lords. The BBC audio webcast Death Comes to Time features a vampire named Nessican.\n\n\n\n Production\n\nSerial details by episode:\n\nEpisode\nBroadcast date\nRun time\nViewership\n(in millions)\n\n\n"Part One"\n22 November 1980\n22:24\n5.8\n\n\n"Part Two"\n29 November 1980\n23:16\n5.3\n\n\n"Part Three"\n6 December 1980\n24:13\n4.4\n\n\n"Part Four"\n13 December 1980\n24:54\n5.4\n\n\n[2][3][4]\n\n\n\n\nWorking titles for this story included The Wasting and The Vampire Mutations.The serial was a re-written version of a story called The Witch Lords which Dicks had submitted to the series in 1977, but which had been pulled just before production and replaced with Horror of Fang Rock.This was one of two serials to feature a highly improved K-9 prop.

When he tells the rebels to evacuate the\nTower, a rebel lifts him down and they escape.A DVD commentary with Terrance Dicks, Matthew Waterhouse and Peter Moffatt has been recorded and it was released on January 26th 2009 in a box set with Warriors Gate & Full Circle.\n\n\n\n In print\nA novelisation of this serial, written by Terrance Dicks, was published by Target Books in September 1981.

The Doctor helped the Thals to defeat the Daleks\nyears ago, so he is surprised to find the Thal city under Dalek\noccupation. He determines to help them again, but what is the Daleks\'\npurpose in keeping the Thals alive? Does it have anything to do with\nthe Daleks\' mythical creator, named in their teachings as Davros?\n\n\n\n Cast\nThe Doctor -- David WarnerThe Brigadier -- Nicholas CourtneyDavros -- Terry MolloyThe Daleks -- Nicholas BriggsNadel -- Amy PembertonGillen -- Sarah DouglasDelt -- Jeremy JamesToloc -- Christopher Heywood\n\n\n\n Notes\nThis is a sequel to Sympathy for the Devil.As the previous story was named after a Rolling Stones song, this play is named for a Bob Dylan song.In this audio drama, David Warner plays an alternative Third Doctor. He previously appeared with his "predecessor" Patrick Troughton in The Omen.The incident in 1972 that the Brigadier mentions is apparently an alternate version of the events of 1972\'s Day of the Daleks.\n\n\n\n External links\nBig Finish Productions - Masters of War\n

    "The Next Doctor" is an episode of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who that was broadcast on 25 December 2008 and is the fourth Christmas special of the revived series.[3]\n\n\nDavid Tennant stars as the Tenth Doctor, David Morrissey plays the titular "Next Doctor", and Velile Tshabalala plays the latter\'s companion Rosita.[4][5]\n\n\nThis special sees the return of the Cybermen, (of the design of the parallel universe\'s Cybus Industries Cybermen[6][7]), following their previous appearance in the two-part finale of Series Two in 2006, "Army of Ghosts"[8]/"Doomsday".[9]\n\n\nDuring its original airing, the episode had a viewing audience of\n13.1 million viewers. It was the second most watched programme of\nChristmas Day 2008.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nContents\n [hide]\n1 Plot\n1.1 Continuity\n\n\n2 Production\n2.1 Writing2.2 Locations2.3 Casting2.4 Design\n\n\n3 Broadcast and reception\n3.1 Broadcast3.2 DVD release\n\n\n4 References5 External links\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n//&lt;![CDATA[\n if (window.showTocToggle) { var tocShowText = &quot;show&quot;; var tocHideText = &quot;hide&quot;; showTocToggle(); } \n//]]&gt;\n\n\n\n\n[edit] Plot\nThe Doctor\nlands in London on Christmas Eve, 1851, where he encounters a woman\ncalled Rosita and another man who calls himself \'The Doctor\'. After\nfailing to capture a Cybershade, the two men talk, with the Tenth Doctor believing the other to be a future regeneration. Unfortunately, the other (dubbed \'the Next Doctor\') is lacking many memories. Meanwhile, the Cybermen\nare planning an attack with a human ally, Miss Mercy Hartigan. The\nTenth Doctor follows the Next Doctor to a house of a dead man, Reverend\nAubrey Fairchild, where they search for clues to what the Cybermen are\nplanning. The Next Doctor begins to regain some of his lost memories;\nwhen the Tenth Doctor finds a pair of \'infostamps\' (the Cybermen\'s data\nstorage devices) the Next Doctor remembers he was holding one the night\nhe lost his memory. The Cybermen then attack the house, but before they\ncan kill the \'Doctors\', the Next Doctor kills them with an electrical\ncharge in the infostamp.\n\n\nAt the Reverend\'s funeral, Miss Hartigan and the Cybermen attack the\nmourners, sparing four who are subsequently fitted with Ear-Pods and\ndispatched by Miss Hartigan to their workhouses to recruit the\nchildren. Returning to the Next Doctor\'s home base, the Tenth Doctor is\nshown the other\'s TARDIS "Tethered Aerial Release Developed In Style" - a gas balloon. Realising what has happened, the Doctor explains that the Cybermen have escaped from the Void (following the Battle of Canary Wharf) when the walls of the universe were weakened in "a greater battle".\nThe Cybermen came upon a man named Jackson Lake, the first person to\ndisappear, attacking him and his wife. In the confusion, Lake destroyed\nthe Cybermen with an infostamp (one containing information on the\nDoctor gleaned from the Daleks), as earlier in the house, but it also\nbackfired, overwhelming Lake\'s mind with information about the Doctor.\nIn despair at losing his wife, Lake came to believe he was the Doctor.\nMeanwhile, the children are taken to a sluice gate to the Thames. The\nDoctor and Rosita investigate and are confronted by Miss Hartigan, who\nexplains that the Cybermen offered her liberation. The Doctor returns\nthe infostamp to the Cybermen, who download it, confirming him as their\nfoe. Miss Hartigan orders the Cybermen to delete the pair, but Lake\nappears and destroys the Cybermen with another infostamp, allowing them\nto escape. A furious Miss Hartigan announces that "the CyberKing will\nrise tonight!"\n\n\nLake reveals that he and his family were attacked at their new house\nand the Doctor realises it may lead to the Cybermen base. There, they\nfind a Dimension Vault, stolen Dalek\ntechnology that allowed the Cybermen to escape the Void. In the\nCybermen base, the captive children are working to generate power to\nallow the CyberKing to ascend. Hartigan is betrayed by the CyberLeader\nand \'converted\' to the CyberKing - thus receiving liberation from her\nanger and hatred. However, she proves too powerful to control, and uses\nher new powers to obliterate the CyberLeader. The Doctor, Rosita and\nJackson evacuate the children, including Jackson\'s son who was abducted\nwhen he was attacked. However, the CyberKing - a giant Cyberman-shaped\nrobot ship - emerges from the Thames and begins to lay waste to London.\nUsing the gas balloon, the Doctor confronts Hartigan and offers her a\nchance to live in peace. When she refuses, the Doctor uses the\ninfostamps to sever her connection from the CyberKing. Realising what\nshe has become, Hartigan screams in horror destroying the Cybermen and\nherself. Before the CyberKing can collapse on the city, the Doctor uses\nthe dimension vault to transport it into the Time vortex.\nIn the aftermath, Jackson thanks the Doctor for what he has done and\noffers him a place at his Christmas celebration with Rosita and his\nson. They walk away, to a Christmas dinner in honour of those they have\nlost.\n\n\n\n\n\n[edit] Continuity\nThe ten genuine Doctors, to date, appear in this episode through an infostamp projection. Apart from Peter Davison\'s newly filmed appearance as the Fifth Doctor in special mini-episode "Time Crash", "The Next Doctor" marks the first time since Doctor Who was revived in 2005 that footage of the Doctors prior to the Ninth (Christopher Eccleston), and indeed any footage made prior to 2005, has been used within an episode. The ten Doctors were all illustrated in A Journal of Impossible Things, a book featured in "Human Nature", however only a few of these illustrations were actually shown on screen. Audio clips of Roger Delgado and Anthony Ainley as the Master were used in "Utopia". The footage of the First Doctor (William Hartnell) is taken from The Time Meddler; the Second (Patrick Troughton) from The Ice Warriors; the Third (Jon Pertwee) from Terror of the Autons; the Fourth (Tom Baker) from City of Death; the Fifth from Arc of Infinity; the Sixth (Colin Baker) from The Mysterious Planet; the Seventh (Sylvester McCoy) from Time and the Rani; the Eighth (Paul McGann) from the 1996 Doctor Who television movie; the Ninth from "The Parting of the Ways"; and the Tenth from "The Family of Blood". Further footage of the Tenth Doctor appears from episodes including "Blink", "The Runaway Bride", "Voyage of the Damned" and "The Lazarus Experiment".\n\n\nWhen trying to trigger Jackson\'s memories, the Doctor refers to\n\'not blinking\', \'weeping angels\' and \'Sally Sparrow\', all of which\nfeatured in "Blink".\nThe Doctor also refers obliquely to past companions, noting to Lake\nthat they either leave him, meet someone else or forget about him.\n\n\nThe Doctor mentions the events of "Doomsday". This is the first episode since "Doomsday" that the Cybermen have appeared in Doctor Who, although the Doctor Who spin-off series, Torchwood, furthered that story in the episode "Cyberwoman".\nThese Cybermen have survived the apparent destruction of the Void,\nusing Dalek technology developed in the Void to pass through\ndimensions. It is also implied by the Doctor that the events of the fourth series allowed the Cybermen to escape the Void, as it also allowed Rose Tyler to return to her own universe.\n\n\n\n\n\n[edit] Production\n\n\n\n[edit] Writing\nPre-broadcast publicity, based on excerpts from Davies\' book Doctor Who: The Writer\'s Tale,\nrevealed that the Doctor would meet a man played by David Morrissey who\nalso claims to be the Doctor. In further excerpts, Davies commented,\n"The best title for this episode would be The Two Doctors... but maybe not. The New Doctor, perhaps? Or The Next Doctor? I quite like The Next Doctor."[10]\nThe book also contained two pictures from a scene cut from the end of\nthe previous episode, intended to segue into the special echoing the\nprevious two series. This scene was included on the series boxset.\n\n\nFollowing the success of last year\'s Christmas special, "Voyage of the Damned", which guest starred pop star Kylie Minogue as one-off companion Astrid Peth,\nRussell T Davies had initially felt tempted to copy this format with\nanother high-profile guest star, but decided against it after jokingly\noffering up "Cheryl Cole on board the Hindenburg" as an example.[4]\n\n\nRegarding the unanswered question of why a gigantic robot in London\n1851 "isn\'t in the history books", Davies and Gardner jokingly offer\nseveral possibilities ranging from there being alternate history of Doctor Who England, pointing out "a spaceship didn\'t fly into the Big Ben in 2006 either" (in the episode "Aliens of London") or that perhaps "maybe everyone was retconned by the soon-to-be-born Torchwood, or something."[5]\n\n\nDavies, from a writer\'s standpoint, was also unhappy with the final\nscene in the episode where the Doctor gets rid of the CyberKing with\nthe convenient Dalek dimension vault but he couldn\'t during the writing\nprocess think of another way to stop London being crushed by a giant\nrobot. However, after the episode was produced, a different idea came\nto him. In this alternate ending Davies imagines, Miss Hartigan "should\nhave destroyed the Cybermen when she screamed... but she\'s still in the\nchair", as the CyberKing falls to the Earth, the Doctor calls out to\nher saying "Save them." This version would have Hartigan redeem herself\nas she is the one to cause the CyberKing to disappear, with no need for\nwhat Davies calls "a silly Dalek continuum dimension vault". Julie\nGardner felt this would have been a superior, "marvellous" ending and\nDavies says he "can\'t bear that there could have been a better ending\nthan we actually transmitted".[5]\n\n\nDavies also feels he would like to write a BBC Books\nnovel, set in the midst of that brief scene where Jackson Lake is in\nthe Doctor\'s TARDIS in which the Doctor takes Jackson to another\nplanet, ending with the "no no no scene" before Jackson invites the\nDoctor to spend Christmas dinner with him.[5]\n\n\n\n\n\n[edit] Locations\nFilming for this episode was conducted in April 2008 at Gloucester Cathedral [11][12] and St Woolos Cemetery in Newport, [13] and in the streets of Gloucester, where shooting was hampered by up to 1,000 onlookers. The main setting of Torchwood, their Torchwood Hub was also redesigned and used as the workshop for the children.[5]\n\n\n\n\n\n[edit] Casting\nDavid Morrissey is the main guest star, playing "a character called The Doctor - a man who believes himself to be a Time Lord".[14] He was influenced in his performance by previous Doctor actors William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton and Tom Baker, as he believed there was "a truth" to their performances because they "never saw [Doctor Who] as a genre show or a children\'s show".[15]\nHe is joined by Velile Tshabalala as Rosita, the companion to\nMorrissey\'s "Doctor", whom Russell T Davies describes as "probably\ncleverer than the two of them [the Doctors] put together". For\nTshabalala, the character came naturally because her "feisty cockney\ngirl" characterisation was very "close to home" for her.[16]\n\n\n\nDervla Kirwan plays Mercy Hartigan, who Russell T Davies describes in the episode\'s podcast\ncommentary as "a dark a villain as you will ever have". A lot of her\ncharacterisation goes unstated, but Russell discussed it in long\nconversations with Dervla Kirwan and fellow executive producer Julie\nGardner. Davies characterises Miss Hartigan as "a victim of abuse", for\nwhom the subtext suggests a "terrible backstory"\nwhich is symptomatic of her being "part of [this] Victorian Age."\nDavies describes this as being "a powerless woman who\'s been in\nservitude or far worse all her life", but holds his tongue from saying\nher precise profession, relaying: "I\'m talking quite discreetly around\nthis because there are children listening and watching and there\'s only\nso far I should go." He does however explain that "She\'s had terrible\nthings done to her" which is responsible for her "really twisted\ncharacter where she sexualises everything." In terms of costume, "she\nwears red" because "everything\'s inflammatory with her". "And in the\nend, actually" Davies discusses how to escape her male oppression she\n"becomes a man, she becomes the CyberKing. She has to go through this\nextraordinary process because she\'s so damaged."[5]\n\nDesign\n\n\n\nMillennium FX\'s Neil Gorton\'s original design for the Cybershade\ntook the existing Cyberman design and "refurbished" it by adding rivets\nand a copper finish. The design was cost-effective but Russell T Davies\ndid not believe it was the right approach. He sketched a new design for\nthe Cybershade that was "a crude version of a Cyberman, all angular and\nblocky, with its trademark handlebars set at a jaunty angle and\nshrouded in flowing black robes". Gorton used Davies\' sketch to create\na fibreglass mask that the Cybershade actors wore over their heads.\nCostume designer Louise Paige made the flowing robes, that were "light\nenough to not restrict movement" to complete the Cybershade costume.\n\n\n\nOriginally, Gardner relayed that there was a widespread\ndissatisfaction with Hartigan\'s CyberKing crown. The original helmet,\nhe remarked "was like the Cyberwoman\'s head from Torchwood" (referring to the episode "Cyberwoman"),\nliterally "a Cyberman\'s head on Dervla Kirwan" or "as if Dervla Kirwan\ndecided to go to a [fancy dress] party as a Cyberman." Davies\' response\nwas "Oh my lord, no." The production team however worked hard, and in\ntwo days produced the final headpiece seen in the episode which Davies\ndescribed as "beautiful", because it\'s "Victorian and it fits the\ndesign." In the scene after the headpiece is placed on her, Dervla wore\nblack contact lenses and SFX company The Mill helped to get rid of "any\ntraces of white" in post-production.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\xc2\xa0Broadcast\n\n\nPreliminary figures show that the episode had a viewing audience of\n11.71 million during its original airing, with a peak at 12.58 million\nviewers, and a 50.5% share of the 18:00 timeslot it was shown. It was\nthe second most watched programme of Christmas Day 2008, behind Wallace and Gromit\'s A Matter of Loaf and Death. Final viewing figures show an audience of 13.1 million viewers. \n\nThe episode had an Appreciation Index\nfigure of 86 (considered "Excellent"), making it the second most\nenjoyed programme on mainstream television on Christmas Day. The only\nprogramme to score higher was Wallace and Gromit\'s A Matter of Loaf and Death, which scored 88. Australia, the ABC will broadcast the episode much earlier than usual on Sunday 25 January at 19:30. \n\n\n\n\n\n\xc2\xa0
