This sneak peek gives a hint at part of the menace planet Earth might be facing in the first installment of the two-part Doctor Who season eight finale – Dark Water. Missy delivers a couple of lines that indicate part of her plan is to have the dead rise from their graves, assumedly to do whatever bidding the mysterious mistress has in mind.
“All the graves of planet Earth are about to give birth.”
“You know the key strategic weakness of the human race? The dead outnumber the living.”
It seems pretty clear that she’s planning to bring back everyone who’s ever died. Even if these undead or reborn, or whatever you want to call them, don’t do anything but stand there it would creep me the hell out. If they become some kind of gigantic army of the undead, how do you kill them? They wouldn’t technically be zombies, would they? If they’re not zombies, how do you fight something that’s already dead – and not technically undead?
The word RUN comes to mind.
Before you run away from the army of icky dead people, check out this huge gallery of 18 images from Dark Water. Check out the shape of the round window in the door that Seb is standing behind. Does it remind you of a particular kind of eye?
