Doctor Who: Mummy on the Orient Express – Question of the Week

WARNING: This post contains major spoilers for Mummy on the Orient Express. If you haven’t seen the episode, click away now!

We’re introducing a brand new weekly feature for Series 8 – every week, alongside our usual after-episode poll, we’ll be asking you about the biggest question each episode raises, and releasing the results the following week.


For episode eight, Mummy on the Orient Express, we’re looking at the question; is the Doctor heartless? 
He might have saved the day on the Orient Express, but he was also willing to sacrifice as many people as necessary to defeat the Foretold, with no emotional reaction to their deaths – so is this Doctor capable of the same pathos and emotion that the Eleventh Doctor was, or is this new Doctor so detached he could be seen as heartless? Leave your thoughts in the poll below!

Is the Twelfth Doctor heartless?

We’ll be revealing the results of this poll, along with our rate the episode poll (vote here), on Saturday 18th October. We’ll have a new poll for Flatline next week!
