The BBC announced that Tank Girl filmmaker Rachel Talalay has returned to Doctor Who to direct this year’s two-part, currently-being-shot season finale. Talalay also directed last year’s two-part finale, which featured a plot involving actress Michelle Gomez’s sinister Missy and a Cybermen invasion. “Recovering from a case of The Silence,” Talalay tweeted earlier Wednesday, referring to a race of Doctor Who monsters who were, indeed, very quiet. “I am so fortunate to be asked back for the finale S09.”

The new season of Doctor Who will premiere this fall. Check back later in the week for an exclusive interview with the Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi, about the season and his upcoming appearance atComic-Con.


If this season’s finale is anything like last season’s, WE’RE NOT READY. Glad to have Rachel back! 

They’ve suddenly realized that they are the most fortunate people in all of time and space and are hellbent on adventure. Jenna continutes to deliver a beautifully nuanced, complex, and funny performance that marks her out as one of the best companions ever.
