Doctor Who fans left shaking after epic series 12 finale cliffhanger
**Warning, spoilers for Doctor Who series 12 finale ahead!**
Doctor Who fans were left shaken after tonight’s rollercoaster series 12 finale, with the episode ending on an almighty cliffhanger.
The closing scene of the chapter saw the Doctor (played by Jodie Whittaker) arrive back to her TARDIS after confronting The Cybermen, only to be interrupted by the Judoon, who raided her spacecraft and zapped her into a prison cell.
‘Judoon cold case unit,’ the monster told her without catching a breath. ‘Fugitive, the Doctor. Sentence: Whole of life imprisonment. Maximum security facility.’
Before she had time to comprehend the nightmarish situation, the Time Lord was instantly transferred to her cell where panic began to set in.
‘What?’ she called out confused, before running towards a window to find herself completely trapped in the middle of space.
Unsurprisingly, fans were shocked by the dramatic scenes and raced to Twitter to comment, with one shouting: ‘Ah one thing that I never expected was this to lead to a cliffhanger where the doctor is sentenced to whole life imprisonment! Great cliffhanger and I’m so excited for the next episode.’
Echoing a similar sentiment, another posted: ‘Absolutely loved ending of the episode. What a great cliffhanger to leave it on, reminds of how they used to do it back in the days of the 10th Doctor. They ended it right as it left me hungry to see what happens next.’
The hit BBC show will air the one-off festive episode, titled Revolution Of The Daleks, later this year following the quite frankly dramatic end to series 12.
Showrunner Chris Chibnall enthused: ‘We can’t leave the Doctor there! On that cliffhanger! Well, we did. But rest assured, the Doctor and her friends will be back for a one-off extended Special around Christmas and New Year.
‘I don’t know when they’re going to put it on yet, otherwise we’d tell you! There will be Daleks. There will be exterminations. Thrills, laughter, tears. You know. The usual. See you at the end of the year.’
Doctor Who is available for catch-up on BBC iPlayer.
