The weekend is (finally) upon us, and so is the return of Saturday night stalwart Doctor Who – back for another run at 7.40 pm tomorrow on BBC1. Steven Moffat’s running the show, Peter Capaldi’s still in the big blue box, with Jenna Coleman as his trusty companion (for now) and we’re promised guest appearances by Arya Stark and Missy (argh), amongst others. Last season was a mixed bag, so I’m a little apprehensive about what this one will bring but, as usual, I’ll be reviewing each ep as soon as I can.
For those looking for something at the opposite end of the space-time continuum, however, period puff piece Downton Abbey is back for its final series on ITV1 on Sunday at 9pm and going head-to-head with BBC1’s sumptuous new adaptation of The Go-Between (at 9pm as well) with the peerless Jim Broadbent and Vanessa Redgrave. Unpopcult isn’t planning on watching either of them, but let us know how you get on if you are.
