In the same week that Doctor Who stars Karen Gilan and Arthur Darvill filmed their final scenes for the show, new details have emerged about the stars’ penultimate episode. This post contains spoilers.

Many little tidbits (all arising from Twitter) have surfaced online in the last few days, all concerning the fourth episode of the seventh series which is reportedly titled “Cubed.” While none of the new information could be considered hugely spoiler-ific, these interesting teases allude to what we can expect from the return of UNIT.

  • When The Doctor first arrives (following a brief phone call with Amy), the Ponds are celebrating their first wedding anniversary. Mark Williams will once again return as Rory’s father, seen wearing a Hawaiian shirt while lighting a celebratory barbecue in the couples garden. – Will
  • Matt Smith as The Doctor was seen on top of a ladder, clearing more black cubes from a gutter. He also dismantled a car and was caught in a “cube storm.” – Will
  • The Case actress Ruthie Henshall hinted that she would be appearing in the show as “a baddie.”
  • Acclaimed writer/director Steven Berkoff has been shooting for the episode, though there is no confirmation on what type of role he will be playing. – Andrée

What do you think of this new information? Does “Cubed” look like a great story for the return of UNIT?
