SPOILERS: Pics confirm villain in new series of Doctor Who

February 4th, 2014 by Marc Comments

The good folks at Blastr have managed to grab pics of one of the villains from the upcoming new series of Doctor Who… and he’s someone we all know about


“Recent filming on the series (this past Wednesday, to be exact) showed a Victorian setting, as the producers apparently were re-creating the haunted atmosphere of Whitechapel circa 1888, when Jack the Ripper roamed the streets of London (which would, in turn, reconfirm the presence of the Paternoster gang — if you’ll recall, Madame Vastra did say she ATE Jack the Ripper in 1888).”

The scene below was the recreation of a murder scene and features an unknown actor (pic at bottom of the page) dressed as Jack the Ripper and sporting a hat with pre-cgi green dots and what appears to be a cybernetic eye. Apparently neither Peter Capaldi nor Jenna Coleman were onset.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
