In the eleventh episode of Doctor Who Season 7 the Doctor and Clara come across Mrs Gillyflower’s Sweetville mill, with its perfectly clean streets and beautiful people but all is not quite as it seems…

The story brings back the Silurian detective, her companion Jenny and the comedy Sontaran. All three your remember from the Christmas 2012 special. This is the second story by Mark Gattiss this second, lets hope he keeps up the good showing of that Ice Warrior tale.

There’s something very odd about Mrs Gillyflower’s Sweetville mill, with its perfectly clean streets and beautiful people. There’s something even stranger about the bodies washing up in the river, all bright red and waxy.

When the Doctor and Clara go missing, it’s up to Vastra, Jenny and Strax to rescue them before they too fall victim to the Crimson Horror!

Cast includes Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman, Diana Rigg, Rachael Stirling, Catrin Stewart, Neve McIntosh, Dan Starkey, Eve De Leon Allen, Kassius Carey Johnson, Brendan Patricks, Graham Turner, Olivia Vinall, Michelle Tate and ack Oliver Hudson.

Written by Mark Gatiss, directed by Saul Metzstein (Upstairs, Downstairs) and produced by Denise Paul (Taggart). Executive produced by Steven Moffat and Caroline Skinner.

  1. Surprisingly enjoyable. It may have been bordering of the silly at times but somehow managed to come out of it very well. Must be Mark Gatiss’ writing… and of course Diana Rigg!

    If only the Doctor could just loose the sonic screwdriver. It is just too much of a easy get out.
