‘Doctor Who’ finale ‘Death in Heaven’ will run for one hour

The BBC has confirmed that the final episode of Doctor Who’s current season is 60 minutes long.

Written by Steven Moffat, ‘Death in Heaven’ will air from 8pm until 9pm on Saturday 8 November on BBC One.

The synopsis reads: “With Cybermen on the streets of London, old friends unite against old enemies and the Doctor takes to the air in a startling new role. Can the mighty UNIT contain Missy? As the Doctor faces his greatest challenge, sacrifices must be made before the day is won.”

The finale is the first two-part story since ‘The Rebel Flesh’ and ‘The Almost People’ in 2011.

    Hopefully the finale will be decent. The overall series has been a disappointment due to very poor scripts and too much of Clara. Moffat continues what he did during the Smith era by making the companion the star and the Doctor a secondary character.

    We loved it in our house! Missy is deliciously evil! All the things a good Dr Who episode should be: believably unbelievable, smart, witty and a bit sick! Epic. Michelle stole the show for me 😀
