Want to find out the premise for episodes five to eight of the current run of Doctor Who? Then step this way...
We've seen episode synopses for the first four Doctor Who adventures in this half of series seven, and now, fresh from the BBC, arrive four more taking us all the way to the as-yet untitled finale. They're brief, but tantalising as we're sure you'll agree...
First up is episode five, Journey to the Centre of the Tardis, written by Sherlock and The Curse of the Black Spot scribe Steve Thompson and directed by M.I. High's Mat King. Synopsis as follows: "The TARDIS has crashed, Clara is lost inside, and the Doctor has thirty minutes before his ship explodes!"
Then comes episode six, The Crimson Horror, written by Mark Gatiss and directed by The Snowmen, A Town Called Mercy, and Dinosaurs on a Spaceship helmer Saul Metzstein. Here's the summary: "Something ghastly is afoot in Victorian Yorkshire, as bodies are found with their skin a waxy, glowing red."
Followed by number seven, Neil Gaiman's Nightmare in Silver, directed by Neverwhere and Harry Potter's Stephen Woolfenden, and guest-starring Warwick Davies, Jason Watkins, and Tamzin Outhwaite. Here's the premise: "Hedgewick's World of Wonders: the perfect theme park day out - and ground zero for a deadly silver resurrection."
Finally, we come to the episode with no name, the series seven finale, written by Steven Moffat, and directed by Saul Metzstein. Here's the summary: "Someone is kidnapping the Doctor's friends, leading him towards the one place in all of time and space that he should never go."
