The Doctor hilariously checks in with the Ponds in the very first episode of the Doctor Who five-part mini-episode spinoff Pond Life —and let's just say phone messages have never been this exciting.

In the first episode of five, which will run all week, the Ponds (Karen Gillan and Arthur Darville)—who are, by the way, enjoying the boring quiet life at home—get a phone message from the Doctor (Matt Smith), who's in the middle of some unplanned adventures. (Seriously, when is the Doctor NOT in the middle of unplanned adventures? But YAY for us.)

We'll just give you a few tantalizing hints before you go ahead and take a look at part one of Pond Life, written by Chris Chibnall:

Sontarans, surfboards, Mata Hari and singing vocals.

Are you just itching to check that out yet?
