The Doctor and the Ponds puzzle an unlikely invasion of Earth, as millions of sinister black cubes arrive overnight, almost like presents falling from the sky.

But what are they, what’s inside them and most importantly, who sent them? With the international community at a loss, it’s left to the Doctor to unearth who is behind the mystery.

    Does anyone else think that the team look a bit sort of… psychotic in the top two images?

    if you look at the reflections in the cubes, they look really evil!

      i think i might just go into a coma until amy and rory come back.

    • Esterath

      You’ll never wake up then.

    • That Cyborg over there

      September 17th, 2012 - 6:50pm

      I’ll think I might just continue watching Doctor Who until Amy and Rory come back. And that should be, ooohhh, the rest of my life. 😛 😉

    Hi Booboo, is it possible to have a bigger version of the 2nd picture? Thanks

  • That Cyborg over there

    September 16th, 2012 - 7:46am

    Awesome pictures!

    At first, THIS was the episode I was looking forward to the least, but now my hopes are high. 😀 I don’t think it will beat A Town Called Mercy (one of my favourite episodes. Ever!), but I still think it will be a decent, enjoyable episode. 🙂

    I’m not keen on the name though. Would’ve much prefered it if they’d stuck with Cubed, but oh well…

    • Esterath

      September 16th, 2012 - 8:19am

      The title is actually the same! Figure it out..

    • That Cyborg over there

      September 16th, 2012 - 9:10am

      I know, but I thought Cubed sounded better and more mysterious.

      September 16th, 2012 - 10:33am

      how is it the same???reply please

    • Whovian

      September 16th, 2012 - 10:44am

    • Boodleoo

      September 16th, 2012 - 12:48pm

      It doesn’t have to be three cubed though it can be any number duckter who it just has to be multiplied by itself 3 times.

    • the ponds wait no more

      September 16th, 2012 - 2:59pm

      reply again still don’t get it make it simplier

    • The TARDIS

      September 16th, 2012 - 3:21pm

      Right, “cubed” is a thing you use in maths. Squared is timesing a number by itself, so 3 squared would be 9. Cubed is a number multiplied by itself 3 times. So 3 times 3 times 3 is 27.

    • Esterath

      September 16th, 2012 - 3:22pm

      Perfectly simple.

    • The TARDIS

      September 16th, 2012 - 3:52pm

      It’s hard to explain simply! Cubed is a number timed by itself three times. Is that simple enough? 🙂

    • the ponds wait no more

      September 16th, 2012 - 6:56pm

      but there is only 6 sides on cube,i guess i might get it

    • the ponds wait no more

      September 16th, 2012 - 6:57pm

      i get it now

    • the ponds wait no more

      September 16th, 2012 - 6:59pm

      6 times 6 is 36

      that is squared

      3 times 3 times 3 is 27

    • Whovian

      September 16th, 2012 - 7:57pm

      Sorry “the ponds wait no more” I didn’t explain very well.

    • Whovian

      September 16th, 2012 - 7:59pm

      Oh and also onther way of saying to cube a number, you could say times to the power of three. hence the link.

      I prefer Cubed as well. I love simple one word titles like the sort the X Files had. I think that they are more effective and in a strange way, more scary.

    Can’t Wait for it – most looked forward to lot for me! It better be good, i like it beacuse you don’t know what’s happening in it
