Doctor Who: written by Steven Moffat - Silence in the Library
Count the shadows. For god’s sake, remember. If you want to live, count the shadows.

I received an email this morning from the State Theatre regarding an inquiry I made last week. I asked how the Q&A would be set up, and if there would be a chance before or after the event to meet the cast.
“There will have a desk set up in the foyer in the evening where guests can submit their questions. We will choose a selection of the best of these questions and these people will have the opportunity to stand up and ask their questions.
Unfortunately, there are no VIP meet and greet opportunities.”
Sadly, we won’t have the chance to meet Peter and Jenna, but at least we can ask our questions. So, think up some really good questions, and perhaps you’ll be able to ask them.
Hope to see you there xx
Moffat’s Women - Lorna Bucket
Lorna Bucket is the only character for whom the assumption that her life revolves around the Doctor is credible… and it’s shown to have devastating consequences. Her story is a mirror image to Amy’s - the girl the Doctor didn’t come back for, for whom the Doctor is a story, not the whimsical tale of the Raggedy Man but a dark legend of a Great Warrior. And so it doesn’t have a happy ending.
Lorna hides a love for danger under her quiet demeanour, following the Doctor’s name and the promise of the excitement it carries all the way to joining an army. Moreover, she’s observant and knowledgable, with an attention to detail. “She was very brave”, Vastra describes her when asked who Lorna was and that’s undoubtedly true, but she is more than that. Above all, her kindness rules her courage - and at no point is that clearer than when she brings Amy the prayer leaf.

BBC Worldwide that Peter Capaldi’s 75-minute premiere episode, Deep Breath, will be shown in cinemas around the globe 23 August!
This event comes after the successful release of The Day of the Doctor in over 1500 cinemas last November, which sold 649,138 tickets to fans around the world.
Steven Moffat says: “Last November the Doctor didn’t just conquer the world on television, he did it in the cinemas too. And like the show-off he is, he can’t resist another go – one taste of the silver screen is never enough. On August 23rd the new Doctor will begin his new adventures on BBC One and in cinemas all over the world. Movie-land beware – Capaldi is coming to get you!”
More information will be released by BBC Worldwide and participating cinemas in the coming weeks. To keep updated, go here.
