Doctor Who is set to wrap up its three-episode arc this coming weekend with an episode written by Being Human’s Toby Whithouse. To whet our appetite for the Doctor’s next timey-wimey adventure, BBC America has released a trailer, a batch of glorious high-res pics and a new sneak peek.
Titled “The Lie of the Land,” the new installment will feature the third appearance of those super freaky new Doctor Who monsters, The Monks. And it looks like we’re going to be in for quite a ride, as Earth is now occupied by those devious aliens!
However, fear not! Missy (Michelle Gomez) is coming to the "rescue"! And her solution to our heroes' current predicament is a killer one. Like, literally. Well, and so are the Doctor's (Peter Capaldi) faithful companions Bill (Pearl Mackie) and Nardole (Matt Lucas).
Read up on the synopsis before digging into the sneak peeks below (I've also included a BBC featurette that sees Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie introducing the episode):
Earth is invaded and Bill is living alone in occupied Britain. The Doctor appears to be on the side of the enemy, flooding the airwaves with fake news. Bill and Nardole embark on a deadly mission to rescue the Doctor and lead the resistance against the new regime, whatever the cost.
Doctor Who airs Saturdays on the BBC, BBC America and Space.
