If your mind's still swimming from the pure fairytale-like amazingness that was Neil Gaiman's episode of Doctor Who, "The Doctor's Wife," this past Saturday, then these new promo pics from the next episode, "The Rebel Flesh," will send your mind into a dark and disturbing little place.


The first word that may come to mind while looking at some of the pictures will probably be eww (that's what happened to us, anyway), but then again, it's a rare Doctor Who that elicits that sort of reaction. Let's hope it's gonna be a GOOD thing.

Below is the episode's synopsis:

A solar tsunami sends the TARDIS hurtling towards a futuristic factory on Earth, where human doppelgangers are used to mine dangerous acid, as the time-travelling adventures continue.

A second wave hits and the "Gangers" separate. They can remember every second of their "original's" life and feel every emotion they've ever experienced. But are these memories stolen or have they been bequeathed? Are the Gangers merely faulty machinery that must be shut down or are they living, breathing, sentient beings? Can the Doctor convince the terrified humans to accept these "almost people" and prevent an all-out civil war before the factory explodes?

"The Rebel Flesh" is the first in a two-parter story that will conclude with "The Almost People" the following week.

What do you think of the pics? Looking forward to the episode?
