Series 8 Episode 7 Kill The Moon Trailer

Saturday 4 October

In the near future, the Doctor and Clara find themselves on a space shuttle making a suicide mission to the Moon.

Crash-landing on the lunar surface, they find a mining base full of corpses, vicious spider-like creatures poised to attack, and a terrible dilemma.

When Clara turns to the Doctor for help, she gets the shock of her life.

    Kill the Moon is a thin retread of “The Beast Below” Sorry, but this season is leaves little to write home about. (so far) Maybe the Producers are giving Mr. Capaldi some tune up stories to help round out the new Dr. maybe not. At any rate, if this is the timbre of stories set for this season, it may be time to freshen the writing gene pool.

    Could these spider creatures have any relation to the spiders the third Doctor encountered from Metebelis three?

    If so that could make them sentient and even talking!

      Remember Metebilis 3 spiders were not just sentient but also telepathic, and one ate rather too much.

    Shock of her life?
    I really hope the Doctor realises that Clara is a b****. I imagine she tries to get him to help and he’s gone off to Sarn bacause he doesn’t care about her.
    Clara is the worst invention since… (wait for it)…


      September 28th, 2014 - 3:54pm

      No, that’s Mel and Martha who are the worst companions since Adric.

      I’ll admit, Clara is a control freak, but only because she herself said so, but I like Clara, and Jenna-Louise Coleman plays her brilliantly. I’ll be said to see her leave when she eventually goes even thou I know you will be glad.

      Sad not said.

      September 29th, 2014 - 7:15am

      She constantly complained about Rose every time the Doctor or Jack mentioned her.

      Clara was ok until she meet Danny and then she became a bit of an imbecile…

      And what about what she does at the end of the Crimson Horror? She let’s arty and Angy onto the TARDIS, without the Doctors permission because they looked at pictures in school that should never have existed in the first place, and if they did exist, be in a top secret archive. Also because they were going to tell their father that she was a time traveller. WHAT KIND OF AN INSULT IS THAT!?!??! The dad would of laughed in their faces! Ok, this was long before she meet Danny, but I just wanted to tell everyone about the most forced scene in Doctor Who’s 50 year history. 🙂

      Have to agree, no more kids in the TARDIS after the last time. Seen and not heard, preferably from a long way away!

    This episode looks to be possibly one of the best of series 8 so far,at least for me,because i am interested to see how they handle the plot with the Doctor and Clara landing on a mining base on the moon and faced with a terrible decision.Is anyone else suspecting a similar plot to The Waters Of Mars? Maybe the spiders will be like the flood and spread an infection which can only be stopped from reaching earth by the mining base it is in getting destroyed.Which would also account for the `dilemma`the Doctor and Clara have to face since they would kill the normal humans as well if they destroyed the base.Please reply and express your thoughts and predictions for this episode too.

      I’m really hoping for this episode to be good, if its got a good plot, the acting needs to be at a high standard and none of the cheesy jokes that don’t really work. This series so far is better than the last in my opinion

    I HATE SPIDERS!!!. But that aside i think this one looks very very good judging by the trailer & especially this in the synopsis that really grabbed my attention “When Clara turns to the Doctor for help, she gets the shock of her life”. Can’t wait till next week.

    Looking forward to this.Looks very Alienish.All we need is a Xenomorph bursting out of John Hurt’s(The War Doctor)chest as in the orginal seminal movie.

    • The Moffat Pardox

      September 27th, 2014 - 10:34pm

      Also seems some similarity to the movie “Apollo 18”.

    Giant Alien spiders meets Facehuggers with Xenomorph tounges.
    Just when I thought spiders could’t get worse.

    I have high hopes for this episode. It has an interesting sounding plot, so let’s just hope that the script is good. 🙂

  • Dalek The Supreme

    September 20th, 2014 - 7:52pm

    That sounds like a very interesting premise! This could possibly top Into the Dalek as my favorite story from Series 8.

      OBVIOUSLY the Valeyard is “between the Doctors 12th and FINAL incarnation”. So it could be…
