Doctor Who executive producer Caroline Skinner has promised that Series 7’s opening story will be the “biggest Dalek episode ever”.
Speaking to Doctor Who Magazine in Issue 447 (out now), Skinner gave the following details for the first four episodes of the new series:
“Episode 1 is the biggest Dalek episode ever. It’s epic, alright: more Daleks than ever, on the biggest set Doctor Who‘s ever had.
“[Episode 2 is] just absolutely amazing. [Writer] Chris Chibnall is hopping with delight, it looks so good… his riot of a story has been brought to life so joyfully by our fabulous cast. It’s going to be the biggest VFX episode of the series.
“I’m confidently smug that [Episode 3] is going to be a winner.
“Chris Chibnall’s script [for Episode 4] is a massive rollercoaster ride of a sci-fi story. It’s also a beautiful piece of writing. It’s all about Amy and Rory’s relationship – full of warmth, love and a celebration of their time on the show. Chris will scare you to bits with this episode!”
Discussing Episode 5’s New York scenes, showrunner Steven Moffat recently hinted that viewers should expect “tragedy”.
The writer had previously announced: “Amy and Rory will leave in a final encounter with the Weeping Angels… Not everyone gets out alive and I mean it this time.”
