The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) has been separated from Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman), and he must team up with UNIT and some old friends to face off against his old enemy now known as Missy (Michelle Gomez) and her army of Cybermen.

Andrew Sorcini guests on TARDISblend 83, where we discuss the invasion of the “Cyberzombies” in the season finale of Series 8, but also preview the reveals and previews of this year’s upcoming Doctor Who starring “Saint” Nick Frost.
After an unexpected event in Clara Oswald’s (Jenna Coleman) life, she turns on the Doctor (Peter Capaldi), threatening him unless he does what she wants. But there is much more afoot elsewhere, as the mysterious woman known only as Missy (Michelle Gomez) reveals herself, and the secrets of the Nethersphere.
During TARDISblend 82, we review the giant reveals and massive spoilers from the first part of the Doctor Who finale, entitled “Dark Water.” We also discuss how things came together for this plotline, and speculate on where things may go for next week’s conclusion.
Doctor Who Season 8, Episode 10 “In The Forest Of The Night”
Directed by Sheree Folkson
Written by Frank Cotrell-Boyce
Starring Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Samuel Anderson, Abigail Eames
Air Date: Saturday, October 25, 2014
Beware of the forest. That’s where evil witches with candy houses cook and eat lost children. It’s where little girls are stalked by wolves. It’s where magic happens, and fear lives for those who venture within its confines. It is this fairy tale forest primeval that we explore on last week’s Doctor Who, Episode 8.10 “In The Forest Of The Night.”
The world is suddenly covered in trees that appeared in a single night. Where have they come from? What do they want? Does one of Clara’s students at Coal Hill School hold the key?
The entire planet has become covered with a continually growing forest, invading cities, deserts, and oceans. The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) accompanied by Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman), Danny Pink (Samuel Anderson), and a group of Coal Hill School kids are lost in the invading forest of London as they try to work out what is happening.
During TARDISblend 81, we send a group message to Tree Facebook and discuss the implications of this latest Doctor Who episode, and debate the possibilities after the preview for the two-part finale of Series 8.
