Check Out These New Images of The Pyramid At The End Of The World

Having mastered the Extremis video game, it’s time for the Doctor to take his PDF file of what to do in case of an invasion out on the road in these new images from The Pyramid At The End Of The World.

Co-written by Peter Harness (The Zygon Invasion/Inversion) and showrunner Steven Moffat (Blink), the episode, the second of a trilogy of episode featuring the beautifully creepy Monks, finds the Doctor (Peter Capaldi), Bill (Pearl Mackie), and Nardole (Matt Lucas), at the centre of a pyramid-shaped mystery.

A 5,000-year-old Pyramid stands at the centre of a war zone, where the Chinese, Russian and American armies are about to clash. There are many problems with that, but the one that intrigues the Doctor is this: there wasn’t a pyramid there yesterday.

The Doctor, Bill and Nardole face an alien invasion unlike any other, and before conquest can begin, these aliens need the consent of humanity…

If you’re still confused about last week’s episode, then get ready to add another layer of confusion on top in this clip where the meddling, mouldy monks explain to the Doctor in elliptical terms, just how you’re going to click on the ‘I understand and agree’ button for our downfall.

You can check out a gallery of new images below featuring Tony Gardner as Douglas, Togo Igawa as Secretary General, Daphne Cheung as Xiaolian, Andrew Byron as Ilya, and Nigel Hastings as The Commander, if you click here and agree to let us take over the world…

Doctor Who continues this Saturday with The Pyramid At The End Of The World at the later time of 19:45 on BBC One.

    Ilya – so the UN on those uniforms is short for UNCLE!
    I’ve been so swept up in the acting and characters, that I haven’t said much about the cinematic scope of S10, but it does LOOK so good. Last week we had so many locations – the usual TARDIS set, looking enormous when full of Vatican staff, the vatican library, the pentagon, the oval office, the 2001 monlith projector room, Bill’s home, The Vault… An interesting variety of lighting, special effects and pace. I wonder what the 80’s team would think of the budget NuWho enjoys today.

      Idunno. The insane creativity forced into the bubblewrap-and-dryer-duct monsters and set were part of the beauty of olde. It’s a patina we’ll never see on a Nu tour de force “Die well!”
