Institutionalised religion may be the “official” reason for the glorious four-day Easter weekend, but we can think of no better way to celebrate the return of Doctor Who (and Game Of Thrones , natch) than two extra days R&R.

The (third) debut episode of the Doctor’s new companion, Clara Oswald, proved to be a winner on Twitter with over 30,000 tweets discussing “The Bells Of Saint John” sent between 6:15 and 7pm, with a peak of 2,100 per minute. Here’s a handful of our favourite Who -related tweets from across the weekend.

@THEBRYANHITCH Weird. I appear to have travelled forward one hour in time. Perhaps a new PR thing from BBC Wales for Doctor Who's 50th.

Peri still number one, obviously. (Cough @thenicolabryant )
