Only yesterday we were sharing a collection of set pics from the brilliant Ryan Farrell, who’s been all over the Doctor Who set gathering intel for internets. Today’s there’s a bit more to share about episode nine of season seven titled, “The Crimson Horror.”
Guess what? Plenty more spoilers here. Avoid if need be.
First we’ve got video of the Doctor (Matt Smith) and Jenny (Catrin Stewart), yes she is indeed reprising that same role, searching for his missing companion, Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman).
What can me made out of the dialogue is Jenny telling the Doctor, Clara is dead and that Mrs. Gillyflower (Dame Diana Rigg), the “ice lady” was responsible. The Doctor responds with saying it isn’t that simple and the “the process is reversible.” We’re also assuming this has something to do with the creepy factory in town, run by Mrs. Gillyflower, which we’ve just learned is a matches factory bearing the sign, “Brightwell and Hyman – Quality Matches.”
Hmm, what is writer Mark Gatiss planning?
Our second video shows the Doctor and Clara talking to, or maybe interrogating, Brendan Patricks‘ character, Edmund.
All right, so much of this has been confirmation of what we told you yesterday, here’s the newest and most spoilery bit. Look who’s back,
Ah-ha! Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh) is returning, along with Jenny, and could very well be seen hookin’ up with Clara as the rumors suggest. Sure, she denied it in an earlier interview but she also denied her return to the show and look! She’s right there! Liar, liar, pants on fire…
And she isn’t the only returning alien. Does this guy look familiar?
It’s Dan Starkey, reprising his role as the Sontaran Strax, last seen as a nurse now it seems a butler.
There’s a lot of bits here to piece together, and if even if we did I’m sure we’d be completely wrong, but what do you think “The Crimson Horror” will be all about? And how about the return of Madama Vastra and Jenny?
Thanks again to Ryan Farell for doing the work of 10 Whovians, great job!
