Rigsy Returns and The 12th Doctors New look

From the official site…

Filming has begun on episode 10 of the new series of Doctor Who and Joivan Wade, who played Rigsy in last year’s Flatline, is back! The episode is directed by Justin Molotnikov and written by Sarah Dollard whose previous credits include Being Human and the BBC’s acclaimed spy drama, The Game.

Sarah commented, ‘Getting to play in the Doctor Who toy box is a dream come true. It’s a total honour to contribute to a show that has brought me such joy as a fan. However, writing for Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman has presented a serious problem: some days I’ve been too excited to actually sit down and type!’


Watch an interview with Sarah Dollard about writing series 9, episode 10.

The episode sees the return of Joivan Wade as Rigsy, the young graffiti artist who helped save the world in Flatline. He’ll be reunited with the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) in this new adventure although how and why he finds himself mixed up with the time traveling heroes is currently under wraps!

The guest cast for the new series includes Maisie Williams, Michelle Gomez, Rebecca Front, Rufus Hound, Paul Kaye and Jaye Griffiths.

The BBC Cymru Wales produced drama will return to BBC One this Autumn with further casting to be announced.

    My biggest hope for this season is Danny Pink, I just watched all of season 8 in like 2 days and still cry every time. Like you know the bracelet Clara has, that could transport one person from one place to another, maybe that is beeping and it beeps a certain amount of times which equals co-ordinates. This leads them to a gateway with a spot to put the bracelet, thus causing Danny to appear from the gateway. And all becomes well in my little perfect world.

    On the subject of Doctor numbers all Whovians might be interested to learn that the 6th,Colin Baker,appears in “The White Iris” which is the current latest episode in the online Star Trek series “Star Trek Continues”.

    I would not be the least unhappy if Peter Capaldi was still the Doctor for the 60th anniversary. Until deep breath, Tom Baker was my fave Doctor – he started the year I was born & was the first Doctor I watched. Doctor 12 has changed me from a slightly obsessed fan of the new show to a Who geek.( Not a Whovian, that implies sociability. I only found this site nosing around for news & have discovered an unusual inclination to share my thoughts.)

    So is Paul Walker. I think anon’s point is that he had films released after his death, but I can only assume there was some relevant footage to work with. I think we will, sadly, have to be content with the final words of the Sarah Jane Adventures…

    Clara?! The same Clara who, now she can’t gently manipulate the Doctor, threatens violence, commits violence & ,worst of all, fully intended to forever separate the Doctor from the only entity who is constant in his life. I’m not surprised the TARDIS doesn’t like her (I had thought that was the impossible girl stuff as an anomoly in time). My biggest hope for this season is that something is done about her control issues. If this could be done via the telepathic interface all the better, ‘cos I’d love to see Idris again.
    In my opinion Peter Capaldi IS the Doctor & this regeneration makes the most sense in a line of regenerations from the war doctor onwards which all make a kind of sense if you think about the causes of regeneration.

    So Peter Capaldi has a new coat then….. So no sign of a regeneration? Damn it 🙁

    Daleks, Cybermen, Ice Warriors, Weeping Angels, i really do not care, just regenerate! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and mine is this: Capaldi just isnt The Doctor!

    Maybe series 9 will change my mind, hopefully it does, but until then, just no! If only Clara wasnt lying when she told the Cybermen in D.I.H that she was the Doctor.

    One more thing, it would be amazing if they could use the same tech as they did with Paul Walker in Fastb7 with Lis Sladen, it would be amazing to see Sarah-Jane Smith in Doctor Who again 🙁

    Can’t beat a coat you can swish, very dapper and reminiscent of Victorian style.

    Yes that’s true but it was trenzalore. I don’t dispute the possibility of angels, I was just wondering about the implication of this planet. Still, a space faring race & all (well stowaways), I suppose they could be back on earth.
