Brave heart, Clara! Clip from The Crimson Horror

A clip from Saturday’s Doctor Who, The Crimson Horror, has been released. The Fifth Doctor and his companion Tegan Jovanka (a.k.a. the gobby Australian) are referenced, including Five’s habit of encouraging Tegan to have a brave heart, continuing the apparent trend in series 7B of making some allusion to a previous Doctor in each episode.

At the end of The Caves of Androzani, Tegan was the first of the Fifth Doctor’s companions to return to him in a vision, telling him to have a brave heart just as he always told her, as he began his regeneration.

Gobby Australians!  Looking forward to The Crimson Horror?  Tell us in the comments.

He launched Time and The – ! in 2011 after having the bright (?) idea to watch every Doctor Who story from the beginning and blog about it. (Yeah, he’s way behind.)
