Out of all the episodes in this “Fall of The Ponds” arc in Doctor Who I’m hoping “The Power of Three” proves to be the most interesting. I mean, it surely looks intriguing, doesn’t it? What with its weird little boxes, the return of Rory’s dad (Mark Williams) and U.N.I.T., plus the rather on the nose allusion of the “Three” referring to The Doctor (Matt Smith), Amy (Karen Gillan), and Rory (Arthur Darvill). At least that’s my theory. I’m just unsure how we’ll see that power manifested and what its consequences will be.

Really feels like the web series Pond Life was a short primer for this episode, doesn’t it? Here’s a slew of new photos released as well,
The Doctor and the Ponds puzzle an unlikely invasion of Earth, as millions of sinister black cubes arrive overnight, almost like presents falling from the sky.
But what are they, what’s inside them and most importantly, who sent them? With the international community at a loss, it’s left to the Doctor to unearth who is behind the mystery.
Guest starring Mark Williams, Steven Berkoff and Jemma Redgrave, written by Chris Chibnall, executive produced by Steven Moffat and Caroline Skinner, directed by Douglas Mackinnon, and produced by Marcus Wilson.
“The Power of Three” airs this Saturday on BBC America at 9pm ET.
I leave you with this video of adorable, four-and-a-half-year-old Lindalee Rose adorably recapping the most recent episode of Doctor Who, “A Town Called Mercy.” It’s really, really cute. As in so cute I couldn’t watch the whole thing for fear my teeth would start rotting. Check it out, and also make sure you check out our Nerd Bastard’s reviews of Doctor Who, from the not nearly as adorable but no less gleefully excited by Doctor Who, Matthew Jackson.
