From ancient Syria to present day Sheffield, and out into the wilds of space, something is stalking the Doctor and her friends. As Graham, Yaz and Ryan return home to see friends and family, they find themselves haunted by very different experiences. Who is the figure calling from beyond the stars for help, and why? And what are the fearsome Chagaskas terrorising Aleppo in 1380? To find the answers, Team TARDIS embark on a mission that forces them to face their darkest fears.
Written by Charlene James and Chris Chibnall Directed by Emma Sullivan
Sounds like it's going to be another arc-heavy one...
That pic at the top is not very flattering for Ian Gelder! Fun that after we saw Anjli Mohindra from Sarah Jane Adventures a few weeks ago, we get another Whoniverse returnee in Ian, who was the shifty Mr Dekker throughout all of Torchwood: Children Of Earth.
I guess more people now know him as Kevan Lannister in Game Of Thrones. His long time partner is Ben Daniels who was by all accounts Moffat's backup choice if Capaldi wouldn't/couldn't take the 12th Doc.
I wonder if the Ian Gelder connection is more about the Remnant creatures from The Ghost Monument than The Timeless Child, given that there seems to be a "greatest fear" component to both... something about the Stenza again?

I loved the cosmic horror element to this episode, and the unconventional structure. But I think the social commentary could have done with a defter touch. They laid it on pretty thick. Still, if it does give anyone the push they need ask for help, then it's still a good thing.
