BFI Announce Ninth Doctor Screening For August Is Bad Wolf / The Parting Of The Ways

The BFI have announced that their August screening in the Doctor Who At 50 series will be the Ninth Doctor episodes Bad Wolf and The Parting Of The Ways. This two-part story heralded the end of the ninth Doctor’s memorable time on the show and features a tight script by Russell T. Davies. Caught in a nightmare cycle of endless reality television, the Doctor and Captain Jack have Daleks to fight, Rose to rescue and the horror of the Big Brother house to contend with. It’s a thrilling end to the first of a new chapter in the history of a show now 50 years old and with no sign of ending.

Bad Wolf The Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack have to fight for their lives on board the Game Station, but a more dangerous threat is lurking just out of sight. Stars Christopher Eccleston, Billie Piper and John Barrowman, with Paterson Joseph and the voices of Davina McCall, Anne Robinson, Trinny Woodall and Susannah Constantine.

The Parting Of The Ways Rose has seen danger and wonders alongside the Doctor, but now their friendship is put to the test as Earth plunges into an epic war. Stars Christopher Eccleston, Billie Piper and John Barrowman, with Camille Coduri, Noel Clark and Jo Joyner, with the first appearance of David Tennant as the Doctor.

The screening takes place on 24 Aug 2013 at 2pm at NFT1, BFI Southbank, London. Guests have not yet been announced.
