Mirror are running another Doctor Who rumor and this time they are claiming to have exclusive plot details on the Series 9 opener.
If true Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor is about to go down his darkest path ever, even though showrunner Steven Moffat claims he made the Doctor more lighthearted this upcoming season.
It’s still a rumor at this point, so we have to take this with at least a tiny grain of salt. But still.
WARNING, it’s extremely spoilery.
Here’s the report from The Mirror:
"Doctor Who will kick off the new series with one of its darkest ever plots as Peter Capaldi’s Time Lord ponders whether to murder a child.
The dramatic season opener is based on a line muttered 40 years ago by Tom Baker’s Doctor in Genesis of the Daleks.
At the time, he asked: “If someone who knew the future pointed out a child to you and told you that child would grow up totally evil, to be a ruthless dictator who would destroy millions of lives, could you then kill that child?”
Capaldi’s nightmare unfolds after the Tardis takes him to a battlefield where he realises he is face to face with a younger version of his arch-enemy Davros, who went on to create the Daleks.
The dictator, played as a grown-up by Julian Bleach, was last seen in 2009 when he locked horns with David Tennant’s version of the Doctor.
This time he returns to Dalek planet Skaro and holds the Time Lord captive as he struggles to save the evil machines from dying out."
That would definitely be some very dark stuff! The Doctor considering the murder of a child? The return of Davros? What's your thoughts on all this? Tell us in the comments below.
