Despite what you may have heard, the Doctor Who watchalongs, which began during lockdown, continue, albeit typically without the fanfare or exclusive content as before. This time the collective internet will be watching the Twelfth Doctor story Mummy on the Orient Express.
Doctor Who Magazine‘s Emily Cook is once again organising the event, which takes place this coming Saturday (26th September 2020).
Emily has organised several watchalongs including The Empty Child/ The Doctor Dances and The Eleventh Hour. They are well worth joining in with if you haven’t before. Basically, everyone taking part watches the same episode at the same time and tweets along using the relevant hashtag; this time, that’s #66seconds.
Mummy on the Orient Express sees Peter Capaldi’s Doctor and Jenna Coleman’s Clara being menaced by an entity that kills passengers on the titular train: a mummy that nobody can see until it kills them.
It’s also long time Doctor Who fan Frank Skinner’s second screen role, if you count his apperance in The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot. He has also appeared alongside the Eighth and Fourth Doctors for Big Finish.
Will you be jumping aboad the Orient Express this Sunday?
