Doctor Who Mummy On The Orient Express Preview: Mystery Galore This Week!
Last week, Doctor Who series eight delivered the best episode yet. So expectations are going to be high that Mummy On The Orient Express will continue deliver on the upward trajectory the series has been taking. Truth be told, the episode is not as good as Kill The Moon but thankfully it is another strong entry, that proves this series is one of the strongest since Doctor Who returned in 2005.
So what can I tell you about this episode? Actually not much, not just because the BBC has wisely embargoed any revelations but because to give away any of the plot would spoil the episode before it has even aired.
What I can say is the mummy is horrific, chilling and certain to terrify small children, so much so that perhaps the 8.35pm broadcast is quite appropriate this week. The Doctor continues to be as ruthless as ever and there is no change in the theme of people dying that marks series eight as different from its predecessors - in a very Classic Who way.
But there is plenty of mystery too and what I can tell you is that it is not going to be what you expect. By the time the credits roll audiences are sure to be divided. But that is what we have come to expect from this Doctor. The show is not quite so family friendly any more - something that may hinder the ratings - but it sure is delivering a dark, bold drama that absolutely suits Peter Capaldis performance.
So I apologise. You probably know no more about Mummy On The Orient Express then you did when you started reading this. But trust me...you want to be surprised!
