Death in Heaven: A One-Hour Finale!

Death in Heaven, the Series 8 finale, will be 60 minutes in length.

Originally hinted at by director, Rachel Talalay and further penned in by the Radio Times, the episode, starring Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald, will be broadcast on BBCOne on Saturday 8th November at 8pm, concluding at 9pm.

The first part of the finale, the brilliantly-named Dark Water, will air at 8:15pm on BBCOne this Saturday (as if you didn’t know that already!), and sees the Doctor and UNIT up against the might of Missy and the Cybermen. (So good to see the Cybermen again, who were last seen in 2013’s The Time of the Doctor, although their last full adventure was Nightmare in Silver.)

According to The Gallifrey TimesDeath in Heaven will also air on Saturday, on BBC America at 9/8C.

The full cast list for Dark Water has been unveiled and –  POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD! – reveal at least one surprise addition: Sheila Reid as Clara’s Gran!

Can you believe we’re almost at the end of Series 8 already?!
