Mummy On The Orient Express Trailer

Saturday 11th October

The Doctor and Clara are on the most beautiful train in history, speeding among the stars of the future – but they are unaware that a deadly creature is stalking the passengers.

Once you see the horrifying Mummy you only have 66 seconds to live. No exceptions, no reprieve. As the Doctor races against the clock Clara sees him at his deadliest and most ruthless. Will he work out how to defeat the Mummy? Start the clock!

    Brrr. I’ve just watched the preview clip for tomorrow’s episode. I’ve got the shivers. I think the BBC’s ruling that the Mummy isn’t shown on the main trailer. It’s truly creepy. So very creepy. Very much looking forward to it. Could be the top episode of the series (beating Kill The Moon). Soooo spooky…

    Frank skinner lol. Remember him fondly when he used to do fantasy football with david baddiel. Would actually like to see him as a motd pundit replacing that black & white clown shearer (i’m a sunderland fan).

    Why does the clock start on 62?
    Looks like a great one. If it’s as good as Kill the Moon was I’ll be impressed.
    The first four episodes I thought were kind of… Just below average. Then Time Heist was brilliant, The Caretaker was abismal, and Kill the Moon was fantastic. I hope the episodes will got consistently better. I don’t want Capaldi’s first season to be remembered for being a bit rubbish. I think he’s brilliant, but most of the episodes so far haven’t suited him.

    I love how the guy doing the electronic voice with the thumbs up symbol is speaking calmly and even says “Isn’t this exciting?” when the Mummy is attacking and being shot at! LOL!

    P.S: Anyone have any thoughts on wat the Mummy might be?

    Now THAT is a scary Doctor Who monster!
    It’s probably the most visually scary monster I’ve seen in Who for ages!
    It genuinly wouldn’t look out of place in something like ‘The Walking Dead’ (a great show for my fellow older ones out there)
    And Foxes + Frank Skinner!
    And The Doctor taking centre stage at last!
    Hopefully the ep lives up to it! (although based on the series so far I’m sure it will)

    Looks great, but every trailer is spoiled by the hideous music at the end. It really is dreadful, this is not an exaggeration, I honestly do have to cover my ears at the start of every episode.

    • The Doctor Wolf

      October 5th, 2014 - 4:28pm

      The music is THE BEST theme since 2005! (along with series 4 + specials)

      I agree. The squeeling tune is unbearable. Please change it before my ears start bleeding!!!!!!

    Thus far,here are my favorite eps of this season:
    1) Kill the Moon
    2) Time Heist
    3) Into the Dalek
    4) Deep breath
    5) The Caretaker
    6) Listen
    7) Robots of Sherwood
    While i have been able to decide which eps i favor and which ones i dont this episode seems to be one i may struggle to judge. I mean, if this ep doesnt seem bizzare than i dont know wat will

      Similar to mine, except I swapped ROS with TC, L with ITD, and L with DB.

    6 Comments About this episode

    1. Some wild facial hair coming up
    2. No Clara in the trailer however Google images seems to contain evidence that she’s in it.
    3. The Doctor is ditching the Crombie (or is this more deep cover?)
    4. Some wonderful space shots of the train – looking forward to that
    5. The Mummy is as scary as hell.
    6. Frank Skinner and Foxes!

      The Doctor is probably trying to blend in with the time period.

    This episode is really making me hyped for next week.I’m wondering how they will handle such a bizarre concept for the show.

    The episode I’ve been waiting for all series! The Mummy looks terrifying… I can’t wait to see how the passengers handle the creature.

      Well one of them seems to be fretting going “oh get it off” – something a cat hater might say if it were to jump on their laps.

      Indeed, though if I am honest, this might be the typical character who believes the creature isn’t dangerous and doesn’t know she’s about to die in 66 seconds. The way she says that it looks like it.

      clara IS in this episode, as it says in the radio times, clara sees the doctor at his most deadliest and decides to stop travelling with him. her name is also on the cast list.

    I like any thing you give me to watch but make episode 9 including weeping angel and make amy come back.

    • HoweverWhovian

      September 30th, 2014 - 9:30pm

      Love the weeping angels! Don’t bring Amy back though, we need someone new and fresh to go with the new doctor. Btw who likes Peter Capaldi?!?! X

      This guy here! What a brilliant actor. Y’know how everyone has their own Doctor? He is mine. #LovePeterCapaldi

    That is a VERY interesting premise. I hope it’s better than the majority of the episodes this season, though.

    Heres the real version of the synopsis…

    Aboard the most beautiful train in history speeding along the stars of the future, a legend is stalking the passengers. Once you see the Mummy, you have 66 seconds to live. No exceptions, no reprieve.

    As the Doctor races against the clock to defeat this mythical foe, Clara sees him at his deadliest and most ruthless and finally realises she has made the right decision.

    Because this is their last adventure: it’s time to say goodbye to the Time Lord

      Yeah but this is the original one

    I”m thinking that this might be an outgrowth of the call to the Eleventh Doctor at the end of “The Big Bang”.

      In SFX magazine, Steven Moffat said it would be fun to follow up that reference, so he gave the idea to Jamie Mathieson for episode 8.


    September 26th, 2014 - 3:08pm

    I doubt it, but what if the Mummy turned out to be an Osiran Service Robot from 1975’s ‘Pyramids of Mars’ ? !! 🙂

      Love Pyramids of Mars. My third favourite story behind Talons of Weng Chiang and The Daemons. Love me some gothic horror.

      In DWM they said the mummy was so scary they couldn’t put it in the trailer. yeah, I don’t think it’s a robot.
