SPOILERS! SPOILERS! ABANDON SHIP! WOMAN AND CHILDREN (AND KASTERBOROUS WRITERS) FIRST!
After being imprisoned by the coalition of evil (no, the other one) in the Pandorica at for the penultimate episode last season it seems the Doctor has become ensnared in another trap altogether – he’s become a wage slave!
Filming this week saw Matt Smith and James Corden on location in a shop with the Doctor sporting a fetching new green jacket and… a name tag.
Corden himself has also brought along a surprise of his own – a baby! It seems he and Sophie have been rather busy since the Doctor departed.
But it wasn’t all strange vocations, children and sartorial changes. No there was the universe to think about and in and amongst the bargains lay another surprise- a Cyber-mat!
Cybermats haven’t been seen in the Whoniverse since the lacklustre Doctor Who Adventure Game Blood of the Cybermen – where they turned the general populace into Cyberslaves.
These developments would certainly go towards confirming the return of our Cyber friends – as well as nodding towards the rumour that the Doctor becomes imprisoned by the metal meanies at the end of episode seven of the new series.
