Separated from the Doctor, Clara discovers a new menace from another dimension. But how do you hide when even the walls are no protection? With people to save and the Doctor trapped, Clara goes against an enemy that exists beyond human perception.

Series 8 of Doctor Who continued tonight as Clara met a menace from another dimension.

In Flatline by Jamie Mathieson, it was the impossible girl’s time to shine when she found herself separated from the Doctor and coming up against an enemy that existed beyond human perception. As the creatures closed in, the answer to salvation lay within the streets of an ordinary council estate. For the Doctor, meanwhile, things got smaller on the inside…

The latest adventure defied the dimensions of relativity itself, but what did you make of all the spiralling drama? The episode discussion is now open, below, for you to have your say!

The future was looking bright for Clara at the end of our last Series Round Up, but things suddenly took a turn for the worst for our impossible girl…

As we boldly entered the second half of the series and the Twelfth Doctor’s debut adventures continued in Kill the Moon, the drama was cranked up to a whole new level as our heroes found themselves on a suicide mission to the moon. Waiting for them there was a mining base full of vicious creatures which looked like spiders but weren’t. This is Doctor Who we’re talking about after all!

But that wasn’t the only thing the lunar surface had in store for the Doctor and Clara, as the latter received the shock of her life when she turned to her best friend for guidance. Aided by Courtney Woods and captain Lundvik, and with the fate of the world quite literally in her hands, Clara was forced to make an impossible decision. It was a choice which had serious ramificaions and one which would seemingly mark the end of her travelling days for good…

When the Doctor returned the week after to face the Mummy on the Orient Express, we all sat with baited breath to see whether or not Clara would also be on board. It turned out that she couldn’t stay away for long and so she was back to help a ruthless Doctor take on the horrifying creature which was stalking passengers and giving them just 66 seconds to live. Assisted by Frank Skinner as Perkins, the TARDIS team managed to stop the clock…

Clara discovered a new menace from another dimension in the most recent adventure, Flatline, which defied the realms of relatively itself. With the Doctor trapped inside a turbulent TARDIS, Clara got the chance to step into the Time Lord’s shoes as she went against an enemy that existed beyond human perception.

The action continues tomorrow night in In the Forest of the Night on BBC One at 8:20pm. Check out our previous series round ups here and don’t forget to add your theories to our ever turning wheel of Missy speculation

Another week means another brand new Doctor Who episode (there’s only 3 left – make the most of it!) and Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat have been on hand with their usual array of teasers and alluring adjectives.

Describing the episode as “wonderful”, the Twelfth Doctor star himself has said that In the Forest of the Night “does one of the things he really loves about Doctor Who”. “It’s a very magical and original script,” he said. “It’s genuinely funny, and also genuinely haunting. It takes us into the dark and mystical fairytale that is the forest.”

Steven added: “So many Doctor Who stories are about Earth being invaded. This is about Earth invading us. This is about what would happen if all the trees turned against us…”

So, is it Saturday? Not yet, but head to BBC One at the earlier time of 8:20pm when it is!
