Doctor Who Season Finale Visits Trenzalore

The latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine, out this week, has previews of the three remaining episodes in the current series - the last episodes to be broadcast before the 50th anniversary special. And they include, it seems, a visit to that mysterious place mentioned by Dorian a little while ago...

THE CRIMSON HORROR

Something ghastly is afoot in Sweetville, a factory community in Victorian Yorkshire, as bodies are found with their skin a waxy, glowing red - the Crimson Horror! What has happened to the Doctor, who's nowhere to be found? How did his image come to be preserved on a dead man's eye? And what, dear reader, is your story? Will you be found wanting when the End of Days is come? When judgement rains down upon us all? Or will you be preserved against the coming Apocalypse?
 
NIGHTMARE IN SILVER

Welcome to Webley's World of Wonders! Roll up, roll up. Miracles, marvels and more await you. The wonder of the age. The miracle of modernity. They were defeated a thousand years ago, but now they're back to destroy you. So fast, so smart, and so strong that fighting them is suicidal. Nightmares in silver! Ladies and gentlemen, behold - the 699th wonder of the universe - the Cybermen! As you've never seen them before...
 
THE NAME OF THE DOCTOR
 
"The path I carved through time and space, from Gallifrey to Trenzalore. My own personal time tunnel, leading back to every moment I ever lived.  Every step, every tear, every kiss. Even the days I haven't lived yet. Which is why I shouldn't be here. The paradoxes... very bad..."

Every journey taken by a time-traveller tears a wound in the fabric of reality, and the Doctor has time-travelled more than anyone. But the trail runs cold in Trenzalore, the one place in all of time and space that he should never go. The most dangerous place in the universe... Who is kidnapping the Doctor's friends, leading him to Trenzalore? Could the Fall of the Eleventh be nigh? Or does an impossible girl hold the key? The Doctor's past, present and future lives are in grave danger... and his greatest secret is about to be revealed.
