Doctor Who – Closing Time Synopsis

Doctor Who – Closing Time

Saturday 24 September 6.00-6.45pm BBC ONE and BBC ONE HD
(Time subject to change)

In the last few days of his life, the Doctor pays a farewell visit to his old friend Craig, and encounters a mystery, as the time-travelling drama continues.

People are going missing, a silver rat scuttles in the shadows of a department store, and somewhere close by the Cybermen are waiting…

The Doctor is played by Matt Smith, Craig by James Corden, Amy by Karen Gillan and Rory by Arthur Darvill.

    Why on earth would people worry? True Doctor Who fans wouldn’t. Wouldn’t we want a new and nice design, compared to that hideous and ugly design?

    No! Definitely not! Matt is not leaving in 2013 at that’s that! He’s one of the best Doctors ever and I don’t want him to leave so soon.

    Yes they have changed. For the better. They looked ugly, hideous and boring in the Adventure Games. Here is what they will look like:

    Matt doesn’t leave in 2013?! Where on earth did you hear that?

    Matt has to leave 4 year if enough. Matt is ok but ihope there’s a new doctor for 2014 if there is a season 9. I’m guessing the new doctor will be like the 9th he will most likely be suffering from a great loss that will most likely happen in the 50th anniversary season 8. What do u think

    He has not said anything about when he’s leaving he has been confirmed for four series but that doesn’t mean he’ll leave at the end of it. It’s like people are assuming Karen Gillan’s leaving at the end of this series because the BBC have not announced anything yet she has said on several occasssions she’s staying permenantly.

    No matts staying for another season and possibly season 8 as well he will probably stick around for the 2013 Aniversay and then hes leaving , I think said hed stay for 4 years that covers 2010 to 2013 about yeah

  • Cybertrousers

    September 8th, 2011 - 5:36pm

    It’s a different design, there are pictures of the new version out there. It’s a very interesting design to say the least because of a “new addition” but I’m not going to spoil it.

    September 8th, 2011 - 4:58pm

    Will this be another Companion-lite episode?

  • Intergalactic

    September 8th, 2011 - 4:56pm

    Silver man – Cyberman
    Silver rat – Cybermat

    Yes, you got it right.

  • Intergalactic

    September 8th, 2011 - 4:56pm

    What?!? The ones in the AG were rubbish. Rubbish and boring, and looked so bad they could only exist in the VG. These new ones are fantastic, brilliant and superb.

  • Intergalactic

    September 8th, 2011 - 4:54pm

    Brilliant. I can’t wait for this episode!


    September 8th, 2011 - 4:11pm

    Silver rat = Cybermat (Probaly, sorry if it’s wrong!)

  • whofan4ever

    September 8th, 2011 - 4:06pm

    the silver mouse is probably a cybermat and i hope they are the ones in the adventure games

  • doctorwhocrazyfreak

    September 8th, 2011 - 4:05pm
