Doctor Who: Let's Kill Hitler
Saturday 27th August 2011, 19:10 on BBC One/BBC One HD


In the desperate search for Melody Pond, the TARDIS crash lands in Thirties Berlin, as the time-travelling drama returns for the second half of the series shown earlier in the year. The Doctor comes face to face with the greatest war criminal in the Universe. And Hitler.

Old friendships are tested to their limits as the Doctor suffers the ultimate betrayal and learns a harsh lesson in the cruellest warfare of all. As precious time ebbs away, the Doctor must teach his adversaries that time travel has responsibilities. And he must succeed before an almighty price is paid.

Teasers round-up
Spoiler:
Show

  1. We like bananas. Bananas are good.
  2. New teeth, that's weird
  3. This is the USS Dave... did you just fart?
  4. Someone just did a Master...
  5. Please state the nature of the medical emergency, Rose Tyler.
  6. Autons? Really?
  7. Fish fingers and custard!
  8. What's a spoiler?
  9. Wow, Mels, well, that's not a very good name for a disguise, is it?
  10. Last time I did this, I ended up a toddler!


  • The Doctor crops up in the most oddest of places.*
  • Looks like the TARDIS gets some mail.*
  • A 1982 Prince song almost hits The Doctor.*
  • River Song and The Doctor's relationship is tied up in a bow.*
  • Someone does an impersonation of The Terminator.*
  • Rory is not gay whilst Hitler is definitely in the closet.*
  • Is that a banana in your pocket?*
  • The Vampires of Venice*is mentioned at a crucial moment by The Doctor.*
  • Other people know about The Doctor's death~day.*
  • Hitler isn't the only person someone wants to kill.*
  • A film referenced in*The Impossible Astronaut*is referenced again. Twice.*
  • The words "the Silence" are visibly apparent.*


SFX:

  • “Let’s Kill Hitler” is a dense, surprising, unpredictable, bonkers maelstrom of random ideas with so many standout moments it’s hard to believe it’s not a two parter
  • On the other hand, it may have worked better as a two parter, because one or two important plot elements seems to come to rather rapid conclusions. Indeed one could have been strung out into a season-long arc plot in itself
  • It certainly isn’t quite the episode you’d expect following “A Good Man Goes To War”
  • The excuse for trying to kill Hitler comes from a totally unexpected source
  • Someone unexpected appears in the teaser who we may get to know quite well, it seems
  • There’s a special effect that seems inspired by the X-Men movies, but we’d argue it actually looks more impressive. Not bad for a TV budget
  • It’s very, very funny. Despite having a few massively dramatic moments, mostly it’s the comedy that’ll linger in the memory
  • Some inspiration for the plot seems to have come from The Beano
  • Someone gets to take a good look at themself
  • The Doctor has another new hat. And coat. But not at the same time. (When asked why the Doctor has a new coat at the post-preview screening Q&A, Moffat replied, “Matt wanted one… it’s not much of an anecdote”)
  • There are some surprise cameos from
  • Someone shocks some soldiers with some very liberal attitudes
  • The solution to one problem is pure RTD
  • The structure is pure Moffat
  • There are lots of women – and men – in underwear at one point
  • The banana agenda is back
  • One outstanding scene is a gloriously daft mix of Bill and Ted and Moffat’s own Sherlock



Despite the slightly out there title, I'm really looking forward to this. It's written by Steven Moffat, continues on from A Good Man Goes to War and the numerous story arcs and reviews have said it's a really funny episode as well.

Almost forgot that there is now 24 hours and 11 minutes until this! :O

Sadly not as excited as for the first part of the series. I need to watch episodes 1-6 again. Watched 7 last night.

please, please Rory don't make this episode cheesy.

I want a nice semi-serious climax now

EDIT: i just know it. Rory will ruin this episode and I will need to switch channels fast to avoid embarrassment (my mum's gonna be there reading a newspaper). I sometimes feel as though I'm watching the Sarah jane adventures with that **** around (in his shining armor :facepalm:)
