Viewers of the RTD produced Doctor Who are aware that each series he has some common theme for loyal viewers: we’ve had Bad Wolf; we’ve had Torchwood; we’ve had Saxon. This year regular viewers have been at a loss. Fortunately for viewers of CBeebies help is at hand. The theme clearly relates to Storymakers, the popular CBeebies show, hosted variously by members of the Wordsworth clan – including (be still your beating heart – Rosetti Wordsworth (and didn’t Rosetti get quoted in Midnight – creepy eh?)). But it doen’t stop there. Every episode of Storymakers begins with “It’s midnight in the library” – spookily anticipating episodes 8 to 10 of the series, 8 and 9 taking place IN THE LIBRARY, and 10 being MIDNIGHT.
Watch out for the use of some imagination in episode 11 as we imagine, imagine, imagine a story. And episodes 12 and 13 will obviously see the Doctor feature his most deadly foe – a giant blue cow travelling by public transport.
