Is the Doctor repenting for his sins? It seems the twelfth Doctor is taking a trip into darkness in the new series. Dark is good. Whenever producers want to convince someone to watch a new season they always say that it gets darker. It seems people prefer shades of grey to moral absolutes. Is that right for Doctor Who? Shouldn’t it be big and colourful like some kind of unwieldy scarf? Or perhaps it can be all things to all men, except those who spend time of Gallifrey Base.
Series 8 of Doctor Who begins Saturday 23 August 2014 on BBC One and BBC America
