Doctor Who The Rings of Akhaten Trailer

Doctor Who The Rings of Akhaten Trailer

Saturday 6th April 6:15pm – 7pm BBC One

Having found himself a new companion in the shape of Clara Oswald, the Doctor asks where she wants to go first – and her request for somewhere awesome takes the pair to the rings of the planet Akhaten, inhabited by all manner of amazing creatures.

Clara meets the young queen, who is about to take part in a ceremony called the Festival of Offerings – but what begins as a happy sing-song soon turns very grim. Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman star.

    Maybe there will be a Teddy Bear called Boo Boo featured in the next episode that Clara may have had as a child, since Boo Boo is really a Teddy Bear name.

  • Time to find out who you are?

    Unfortunately, I won’t be able to see this when it is broadcast, as I’m going to SCOTLAND!! I’m also going to STONEHENGE, and any Who fan could guess what I’ll be shouting on top of a rock there!
