Doctor Who review: 'Before the Flood' is scary and smart

If you were busy watching England's rugby defeat last Saturday night, you missed a thrilling episode of Doctor Who, packed with moments every bit as blood-curdling as the sporting horror show. 'Under the Lake' might've suffered from a sketchily written supporting cast, but it scored with an abundance of atmosphere, great twists and some nifty sci-fi concepts.

This week, writer Toby Whithouse makes shrewd use of the two-parter format, positioning this follow-up episode as a prequel-of-sorts. But while the setting is (mostly) different, 'Before the Flood' is much of a muchness with its predecessor. It replicates many of its strengths, but also a few of its flaws.

Roughly half of the episode is set in the 1980s - a few hundred years before 'Under the Lake'. It's here that the Doctor rediscovers the spaceship left lurking in The Drum last week, and meets its oddball occupant, Prentis (Paul Kaye).

Doctor Who review: 'Under the Lake' is atmospheric but flawed

Three weeks into its latest run and, despite being filleted by critics for having its ratings trampled on by big rugby men, Doctor Who is ably demonstrating its power of enormous variety, jumping from a bonkers premiere to a bleak episode two, to - this week - a throughly traditional outing.

The 'base under siege' plot - our heroes and a motley crew trapped in an enclosed space - has been a Doctor Who staple for decades. One series, back in 1967, even replicated the formula for all but one story.

Since the show's resurgence, we've again seen countless examples of the type - 2005's 'Dalek', 2006's 'The Impossible Planet / The Satan Pit', 2011's 'The Rebel Flesh / The Almost People', and more.

The latest script offering from Being Human creator Toby Whithouse, 'Under the Lake' also borrows the notion of an untranslatable language from 'The Impossible Planet / The Satan Pit', while

Doctor Who series 9: geeky spots in Under The Lake

Toby Whithouse's Under The lake is packed with references, from a 7th Doctor story through to Star Trek. Here's what we spotted...

This article contains lots and lots of spoilers for Under The Lake.

Under The Lake may not be the Dalek-filled continuity fest of the last couple of weeks, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t set our geek senses tingling. Here’s everything we were able to spot, from the obvious references to the slightly tenuous connections, from this week’s episode...

Ghosts From The Past

Under The Lake is a perfect example of what’s commonly referred to as a ‘base under siege’ story. These were a staple of the classic series, particularly during the Patrick Troughton era, not least because they meant the ever-stretched production team could save on the set budget. The first proper base-under-siege tale was William Hartnell’s final story, The Tenth Planet,

Watch a clip from this weekend's Doctor Who episode 'Under the Lake': Someone (or something) is stalking Clara

Someone… or something is chasing Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) in a preview of this weekend's Doctor Who episode 'Under the Lake'.

Series nine's latest episode is set on a spooky underwater mining vessel called Drum, where the crew have found a seemingly deserted spaceship.

Judging by the clip above, poor Clara might be in trouble because she's on her own in the ship with the remnant of something that was once alive.

'Under the Lake' is the first-half of a fresh two-part adventure along with 'Before the Flood', following on from last week's visit to the Dalek planet of Skaro.

Paul Kaye Set For Doctor Who

Paul Kaye Set For Doctor Who
If you had told us, back in Dennis Pennis’ mid-1990s spoof interviewing heyday, that his alter ego Paul Kaye would one day be starring in a TV adaptation of Game Of Thrones and the new Doctor Who series, we’d have likely said, ‘Doctor Who isn’t even on! And there Is no show of that one book by that fantasy guy! Begone, time-travelling demon!’ But we would be sadly wrong (except maybe about the time-travelling bit), as Got veteran Kaye is indeed part of a sprawling cast for the two-part launch for the new series of Who.The BBC has announced that the ninth series of the show – at least since the Doctor came back to screens in 2005 – is now shooting at its usual Cardiff locale, with Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman once more starring. Kaye, Thoros in Thrones, will be one of the main guest stars for the two-parter alongside Morven Christie,

BBC announces start of production on Doctor Who series 9, guest stars revealed

The BBC has announced that the new series of Doctor Who has begun filming ready for its return to the small screen this autumn. In addition, they have also revealed a selection of guest stars who will feature in the two-part opening episode.

Paul Kaye (Game of Thrones) is one of those guests involved, and he said: “As a kid of the 1970s, the two shows you always watched were Top of the Pops and Doctor Who, they were unmissable…..I actually wrote a song called ‘Looking for Davros’’in my first punk band and I sang it like a demented Dalek. I got to present Totp back in the mid ‘90’s and landing this role in Doctor Who completes the dream double. Peter is a perfect Doctor and I’m loving every minute of the experience, even the five hours in make-up. What a treat, best 50th birthday present ever!

All Of Space And Time…Filming Starts On ‘Doctor Who’ Series 9

The almighty BBC have been in touch and let us know that Series 9 of Doctor Who has begun filming – Hoorah! – and announced their first guest star in the shape of the versatile Paul Kaye.

At the moment they’re in Cardiff with the new series set to air first on BBC One this Autumn. The episodes currently being filmed are written by Toby Whithouse, produced by Derek Ritchie and directed by Daniel O’Hara (Silent Witness 2015, The Game, Being Human).
